What You Need To Know As An Entrepreneur

This is a quick list of things that all entrepreneurs need to know but not too many talk about. Some are things I didn't realize I was signing up for but are crucial to being successful.

First, I did not realize as an entrepreneur you have to look inside of yourself more often than you are comfortable with because this is where most of the answers are.

Not one second did I believe that I would think that starting my business. We think that we have an awesome idea and that we’re awesome at what we do and think people will just come, but they don’t. This is not a business of dreams, if you build it, they will not necessarily just come. I’m not saying that it doesn’t happen for some people, but for most of us it doesn’t happen. 80% of the reason for that is us. There’s nothing wrong with us, but there’s so much growth and so much self development that happens. Look inside of you more often because that’s where all the answers are and...

How To Create a Week of Social Media Posts in an Hour

The Never Ending Content Wheel

Who feels like they are on the content creation hamster wheel? You feel like you need to come up with a new post or content EVERY DAY to keep your audience engaged and growing. And while that is true, it is not the whole story.

You Do Not Have To Create New Content Everyday

What! Listen, I thought the same way you do right now. That I had to come up with a new post every day for every platform I was using. UGH, so exhausting! I said "there has got to be a better way!" After months of google, youtube, free pdf's etc. etc. etc. and a lot of overwhelm I came up with a simple content process that has worked extremely well!

Why Your Selfie Isn't Cutting it

But I love my Selfie!

No doubt! I love selfies too! They are a great way to show your friends and family your latest face. Or to get yourself in the picture with your favorite band playing behind you at the concert of the year. They will always be a valuable form of self expression in our digital world. But there is also a time and a place for them. Let’s talk about why they don’t work for your business, website, and professional pages.

Quality

While the new cell phone cameras are pretty awesome, they still can’t compete with an image that has been resized correctly to fit the platform you are using it on. Professional images, taken with a professional camera, start out as a monster size file. They can be resized to fit the specific parameters that will keep it looking great on any platform. Your phone selfie however has a really good chance of looking extremely grainy or pixelated.

How To Keep A Positive Mindset - 4 Tips To Shift Your Thinking

A Positive Mindset Takes Work

A positive mindset is something I have been working a lot on lately. Not because I am not a positive person, but because I want to be able to change the way I approach negativity.

Most of us probably don’t realize that the negative experiences we have had in our lives often influence our decisions. Our brains learn from difficult or painful experiences, so it naturally wants to do whatever it can to protect us from a recurrence of that feeling.

Our lives are a reflection of our attitude. The energy you, or anyone else, brings with them is contagious. You get what you give. I know this is so true for me. If there is friction in my house, the kids are stressing me out, or my fiancee is in a bad mood, it’s really difficult for me to be positive.

Now I am not saying that you should run around with daisy chains in your hair singing Kumbaya all the time. Everyone has emotions. But sometimes if we look at things a little differently we will see...
