Top Pinterest Tips for Bloggers

If you’re on my email list, you already know how much I love Pinterest because of what it has done for my blog.  Eight months ago, I was getting NO traffic, NO repins, NO nada! I was on the verge of giving up.  Blogging is hard work, and while I love it, it can be kind of a downer when your message isn’t reaching people that you know it will impact.

So, what do you do when you have no traffic…?

ENTER Pinterest!

Pinterest now has a whopping 150 million active users on its platform, and guess what?  They’ve made it so easy for bloggers to completely reap the benefits of viral content and blog traffic surges. […]

Increase Your Blog Engagement and Stop Worrying About Blog Traffic

Hey y’all!  I’m back after a pretty long hiatus, mainly because I just moved to Atlanta, but today I wanted to chat a bit about a topic that I think plagues all new or newish bloggers and small biz owners.  When I first started my skincare business, I would get so bummed about not getting the website traffic that I just knew was going to come rolling in as soon as I hit publish.  I figured that by researching SEO and implementing all of the tips I’d read on other blogs that the site traffic would just come pouring in. WRONG. This was a terrible assumption that cost […]

How to Create an Automated Social Media Strategy

So you’ve fixed your cup of chamomile tea, you’ve done your morning stretches, and  you’re ready to start your day.  You prance over to your to-do list, giddy to start your day, and you stop in your tracks.  All in an instant, that day you couldn’t wait to conquer, turns into one where you’d just rather Netflix and chill all day.  Why?  Because… you’ve got to tweet at least three pieces of content, create a graphic for Instagram, write newsletters, publish your latest blog post on Facebook, and this isn’t including checking emails and creating content for your blog or business.

We all get busy.. I mean, it’s kind of in an entrepreneur’s […]

How To Level Up Your Business in 3 Easy Steps

Bossladies, today I want to chat about a hard lesson that I had to learn when I was running my skincare business, and it’s all about one tiny thing that new entrepreneurs hate doing: embracing change and learning how to level up your business.

Listen up… if you want to be successful, you have to realize that you’re not going to hit a home run on the first try.

That’s why you always see people rebranding and up leveling.  Even big companies do this! I recently saw a commercial the other day for Cici’s pizza and noticed that they had changed their logo to a cleaner looking emblem.  I found it kind […]

19 Actionable Ways to Establish Yourself as an Authority

If you want to be a successful entrepreneur in any field,  the number one thing you need to work on is establishing yourself as an authority.  Being an authority, or the HBIC, as I like to call it, doesn’t necessarily mean being an expert or having a ton of credentials in your niche, but it does mean having some skin in the game.

So, if you:

• have proven formulas and strategies that work for your business,

• have made a living, or are on your way to doing so, off your expertise and knowledge,

• or you can produce results for other clients through your expertise and knowledge,

then you can probably call […]
