Do you work on Sundays?
I typically take the day off to spend with the family but if we are having a #lazySunday I will sneak in a bit of work while everyone else is doing their own thing.
I usually focus on the admin tasks and planning out my week. This helps me move into the week with a clear mind and a bit of excitement because I know what is coming up.
This episode is an "explosion of marketing genius." 🎆

“We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or we can rejoice that thorn bushes have roses” - my boy Abe Lincoln ...
It’s so so simple, but he is so right in that we need to find the positive!! (He’s also my fave historical figure😬🤓)
... Sunday’s are my favorite day of the week, because I recharge, invest in my spiritual and physical health, spend time with family, and plan for the week ahead.
I start my Sunday with gratitude and looking for positivity in the coming week. 😎😎😎
Plan your week today, and when you are doing so, pencil me in for 4pm PST time tomorrow- Monday! 📺 ...
I’m going live and talking all things target customer👍 it’s a good one and something I share mostly with my private coaching clients, but it’s your lucky day and I’m feeling like I should share it with YOU!
See you tomorrow, and remember the thorn bushes have roses when you get in a tough spot!
I used to care so much about getting likes & follows & comments .
I was trying so hard & I actually got less engagement
I was practically begging people to comment by asking them silly questions on my captions & no one ever responded 🤣 #fail
But the moment I started saying fuck it! And sharing whatever I wanted & was completely transparent = tons of organic engagement & IMPACT (the real goal)
And truthfully, I’ve stopped caring about having a following on IG. I used to hope & dream of having hundreds of thousands of followers. But the thing is, you start to realize it doesn’t really matter. It means nothing. .
It doesn’t mean you’ll be rich or have lots of sponsors.
It doesn’t mean everyone will buy your products or services.
It doesn’t mean you can leave your day job.
It doesn’t mean you make an impact.
So instead of focusing on what will get the most likes, focus on how you can use your platform to make a difference & make an impact. .
How do you do that? Add value. Make people think, share information, entertainment, make people smile, the list goes on. .
But when you focus on impact, you can create customers/clients, friendships & truly make a difference in peoples lives. #FocusOnQuality#NotQuantity
Breathe and Recap!
It’s time to take a rest and recap.
Let’s recall why you’re here.
You’re here because you want to make your life matter and have an impact in the world and to live the fullest and most wonderful life. Deal?
Quite simply, you are not a humdrum, 9-5 person.
What is Impact? The dictionary says: To have effect on something or somebody.
I would add that the benefits of having impact are:
Knowing you’re in your rightful place in the world, being and doing what you know you should.
Being visible, so that your clients come to you and you don’t have to chase them.
Making bigger money as people see you as a leader and expect to pay more for your services.
When you have impact, people follow you and stay with you because you inspire them with your vision and your message, which is always about more than just making money.

5 things you might not guess about me.
1️⃣I love plain potato chips but I can’t eat the curled ones. I’ll search the bag until I find the perfect flat one. It’s a texture thing 🤷♀️
2️⃣ I am an introvert and love having my alone time. Give me a good book or trashy t.v show any day over networking with lots of people. But.... I can turn my social-somewhat-extrovert side on for a little bit if needed, I just don’t like to.
3️⃣Mark proposed to me in French. I had taken 4 years in high school and 2 in college so he wanted to do something different when he asked me to marry him. We were listening to the Celine Dion French album on repeat those days so maybe that was it? I can’t speak it now but I can understand and read some (with the help of google translator) 😂
4️⃣It makes me mad if there are dirty dishes in the sink. Like, I start blaming everyone else in the house on why “no one else sees them”. Good news is I’m working through this and have even practiced not getting mad when they’re there. .
5️⃣ I get really sweaty hands and feet when I’m nervous or concentrating. As a kid I played piano and I would concentrate so hard on what I was doing that my fingers would sometimes slip off the keys. And in high school I either had to wear a sweatshirt so I could pull it over my hands when I wrote on paper so it didn’t get soaked or I had to fold a piece of paper underneath my hand so it didn’t soak what needed to be turned in. It’s gotten better over the years but if I don’t shake your hand when we meet, you know why 😂
Now that that’s over I wanna hear about you! Tell me something dun about yourself. It’s a no judge zone ❤️
There are no weekend or holidays for the hustlers. But remember make a smart move and go ahead keeping strategy in mind.
When others are chilling, show your presence and gain trust from your potential target audience that you are there.
Have you ever tried someone’s proven business strategy that worked for someone else but you? 😔
It’s not that techniques are not working you may not be fully aligned with it.
I’m not suggesting that you completely dismiss “marketing gurus”, I’m saying that you need to make adapt those techniques to your own style, and own it.
For instance, I don’t offer free strategy calls anymore because it didn’t feel authentic for me any more.
Instead I introduced a mini strategy sessions charging only £30 and I don’t make any offers to a client during those 30 minutes.
