As someone who strives to be an ally and advocate, as a podcaster, and as a former educator, I am sharing resources that I’ve compiled.

I encourage all of us to understand that we might make mistakes, and we might not know what to say or ask or do, but it’s important to keep trying. It’s important to educate ourselves and each other.

Don’t afraid to stand because you don’t want to make those mistakes.

We’re humans. Let’s do our best to be our best.

It's Fri-YAY on a *long* weekend! ⁠

I don't think anyone will disagree that 2020 has been a very strange year. I can't believe we're halfway through the year!⁠

It's like we packed 10 years of stuff into six months!⁠

Lately, my stress levels have been so high that my forehead has probably aged five years.⁠

I'm taking this weekend to slow down, reflect, spend time with my little family, give myself some grace and relax.⁠

I am so grateful for all of the lovely humans in our community who are working hard to make change, push forward, and also take care of themselves — because that is also important.⁠

Cheers!⁠

Free. Online. No excuses! Link in bio; details 👇⁠

Your website is the foundation for your online business. ⁠

While design and functionality are incredibly important, it's the MESSAGE on your website that will get customers excited about your brand and drive sales. ⁠

Write the content for your website so that it does the heavy lifting of selling for you--without the risk of sounding salesy. ⁠

In this workshop, you learn... ⁠
- Copywriting mindset shift to make your writing and website so much more effective⁠
- 5 questions you MUST answer on your website for impact and credibility⁠
- Proven copywriting framework to use to beat the blank page⁠
- To write headlines on your website ⁠

"I’ve gotten half a dozen inquires in the past month (unreal considering the circumstances) and consistently get compliments on the website. NO ONE BATS AN EYE AT MY PRICING. People see my value and want to hire me, no questions asked. Thank you for the amazing work in helping to write my website and formatting." -Mike Glatzer, Mike Glatzer Photography⁠

Meet your workshop leader⁠

I know I've said this before, but it was just so impactful when @dedeecai, CEO of Fit to Profit, said, "When you're on online business, any day that you don't show up online... it's like you're closed. It's like if you had a brick and mortar and you just didn't open that day."⁠

It's so true, but I'd never thought about it.⁠

Last week, I took a workshop with @sproutcreativela. It's the third time that I've taken a marketing workshop with CEO @kristinakury and I just that's how many times it took for this gem to sink in: "Marketing isn't about telling people about your product. It's about educating them. You want to provide value in your marketing endeavors."⁠

🤯⁠

Again, I'd just never thought of it that way.⁠

So, I revamped my Insta strategy into less "hey, guess what we've got going on" and decided to dedicate myself to providing true value. ⁠

Because that's why we're all here, right? That's why you follow me on one of my many Instagram accounts (yes, there are five of them).⁠

Thank you for your continued support as I grow and learn! I'll keep sharing as I do! 😘⁠

Let's do a little Friday Introduction for the lovely @mabely_q 🎊⁠

This brilliant lady makes my life run. Seriously.⁠

She's the operations manager for @districtblissevents, @photosfromhart, AND @theweddingdishpodcast.⁠

So, she basically runs my life and makes it so that I can juggle two businesses, one podcast, and a fulfilling life.⁠

I am able to walk away from my businesses for upwards of six weeks per year at the drop of a hat and it's like I never left. Things keep running perfectly. You may not even know I'm in Bali (one can dream) or just taking lots of naps one day.⁠

HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE!⁠

I honestly don't know (especially because she has other clients), but I do know that I am so.much.happier and healthier since Erin joined the team.⁠

This is the face of the person who is probably answering your emails, organizing our events, sending out resources, and reminding me to get back to you when your email has been sitting in my inbox for six days in the EOD tab. ⁠

Say hello! She's fantastic!⁠

PS: She's also an accessibility expert, so if you're looking to make your business more accessible, be sure to follow her for approachable, easily implemented tips, tricks, and tools!⁠
