#10YearsChallenge ! Got to love it! What I would have told myself back then that I only know now: • Eff the status quo - it will never bring you joy & happiness. Experiencing that is the reason you are here. • You don’t need another degree. You need to get honest with yourself about what you truly want in life, and take risks to make that happen - starting TODAY. • If they don’t already love & appreciate you, there is nothing you can do to change that. Find the people with whom you share mutual respect + adoration, and you’ve found your true family. • You won’t ever “fix” someone else. The only thing you can fix is your own decision-making and reactions to life. • You create your own reality. Just because you’ve repeatedly lived trauma and pain... it doesn’t have to continue to be that way. Believe in a better story and watch your life experience change in beautiful ways. • The answer is not in something, someone or some place new. The answer is right there, inside you now. Listen. • Find yourself and invest 💯 in that person that you discover. • You can have it all - you can have your cake and eat it to. Life is not a zero sum game. Everything you want is available to you. You do not have to choose.
“NOBODY CARES ABOUT YOU... THEY ONLY CARE ABOUT THEMSELVES.” What do you think of that? @neville_medhora sings this song for his students in his course, Kopywriting Kourse- it’s unbelievable funny & memorable. It’s also VERY #TRUE . If you want to capture someone’s attention so they see the value in what you offer, you need to let them know EXACTLY WHAT’S IN IT FOR THEM. People literally have almost no interest in others except for in how others affect their own lives in someway. #Copywriting is such a valuable skill! It’s helped me land scores of jobs and clients... if you haven’t learned the art of copywriting, it’s def worth the investment. That, or sign up for my coaching program, Clients+Caviar, and I’ll teach you all about this and so, so much more. You can get it at the LINK IN BIO until Tuesday - then the DOORS ARE 💯 CLOSED!

🎁 #CES2019 WELCOME GIFT 👉🏻 The full 215-step #TechStartup #LAUNCH PROCESS I used to earn $60k just last month. If you want it, drop a comment below and i'll send you the link in your DMs. ... Few people know that, back in 2013, when I quit my day job, I also decided to decline an interview with Facebook Menlo Park 😬 to move to Thailand and live off of $600 per month. 😱 That’s where I boot-strapped my business Data-Mania, LLC almost from scratch. 🥳 At that time, I hadn’t an inkling of an idea that the work I did through Data-Mania, LLC would go on to touch and transform the lives of hundreds of thousands of tech professionals around the world. ⭐️ Every time I consider our $60,000 week or that $10,000/hour speaking gig with an international business class trip to Istanbul… ✈️ Each time I think about our thriving community of about 650,000 brilliant tech professionals… ♥️ When I think about the amazing people I’ve brought in to support the business along with me… 🥰 I get TOTALLY OVERWHELMED WITH GRATITUDE that I made the choice to DISCARD THE STATUS QUO + BUILD MY OWN BUSINESS. 🙏 The thing that I always have to keep in mind is that… 👉🏻 I didn’t earn all of this success on my own. I’ve had a lot of help along the way. 💐 That’s why I’m SO PASSIONATE about helping other #STEM grads CONVERT their high-value TECH SKILLS into very real and THRIVING BUSINESSES. 🙂🛫💵🙃 WHO OF YOU DOESN’T WANT A LIFE FULL OF FINANCIAL + GEOGRAPHIC FREEDOM? 🤣 I know for me... 👉🏻 my FREEDOM WAS ALL I WANTED, but I’ve ended up getting ssssooooo much more. 🌺 So if you know you’re ready to build your own 6-figure tech business, I’m here to tell you EACH and EVERY STEP you need to take. GO TO MY LINK IN BIO today to see just what I mean. . . #CES #tech #techlife #linq #techcrunch #iot #computervision #technology #weprogrammers #Internetofthings #instatech #techaddict #gadgets #electronics #techies #techgadget #techgeek #techlover #techstartup #startups #businesscoach #womenintech

OUT WITH THE OLD, IN WITH THE NEW! Today can be a truly fresh start, if you allow it to be 🥳 Let’s talking about WHAT MAKES A #TechStartup SELLABLE. 1️⃣ It should #profitable 😂 2️⃣ It should be #scalable 😬 3️⃣ It should be based on sound structure, systems, and processes Many of you know, I had #PrivateEquity investor approach me last year, and I didn’t engage. 😬 The real reason behind that was 2-fold: 1️⃣ I thought I was the center of my business so it couldn’t exist without me. 2️⃣ I was the only one who knew how to keep things together in the business. So today I realized some false assumptions that debunk both of those beliefs and have me spinning with excitement at the thought of owning a real effing business that I could one day sell!! (In contrast to an #influencer business, that would fail without the influencer) Today’s hidden #TruthBombs : 1️⃣ The value behind an influencer is derived mainly from their marketing know-how and methodologies, and much less so by the size of their audience 2️⃣ It’s not that hard to build a structure around your business processes. It’s not that hard to codify #BusinessProcesses in SOPs. The truth is, there’s a cap on reach through social... audience size vs reach is not a linear relationship. Meaning that a person with 10K or 20K followers could achieve similar results as a person with 100k followers. The value is in the methods not the audience size. Likewise it may take one person 10 years to reach 100k audience size while another could get to 100k (authentic accounts) in 3 months! Just something to think about as you kick off your new year 😘
Thank you my BDG IG community!! You all are the stars of my online life! I bet you didn’t know - the first strategy I ever used to create my own business was “social listening” (way back in 2012). That’s where you look at your social analytics and determine what’s working and what’s not, in terms of your marketing outreach. If you’re not doing that, I dare you to transition your IG to a business account and start today! You’ll be amazed at how much more effective you can become once you see how people are responding! So for an example of how I’d read these IG stats... Based on impressions, the IG launch strategy was effective 🥳 That, and the recent sponsored posts enjoyed a great viewership 🥳 Other than that, I pretty much know I need to upgrade and adapt my IG strategy to better fit the evolving version of my client avatar. As you grow and shift in your career, you have to continually adapt your marketing strategy... to keep reaching and building relationships with people that share your same passions. So... this winter represents some major shifts in terms of strategy and implementation for my business - with an even bigger focus on outreach.
What are you doing to make sure you enter 2019 with a fresh slate? One of the bigger things I want to leave behind in 2018 are these: • My complete #obsession with my business - there needs to be time & space to remain inspired, and that can’t happen if I’m obsessed with all the operational & marketing details (like I have been). • My attempt to try to do too many things myself - we’ll be having point-(wo)men in 2019. I’ll be focusing on conceptualizing and planning the details of implementations so I can keep my team on-track. • Lack of self care - I will stop putting more importance on my achievements & outcomes than I do on my life and how I’m actually feeling in my own skin. A boundary I’m going to test out is to only allow myself to work 4 hours per day. The time you have is the time it takes. I didn’t build a business so I could be consumed by it. That’s an extremely limited life experience that I’m not willing to propagate. So in 2019 I’ll be maintaining a heavy focus on boundaries, delegation, and my own creative genius. On what areas will you focus to ensure you show up the very best version of yourself in 2019?
