3 Ways to Show Your Business Some Love on Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day: a day widely recognized as a day to show LOVE.

Although we can all agree that love should be given 365 days per year, there is absolutely nothing wrong with devoting a day to celebrate love in all it’s glory!

Being the business woman that I am, I felt that a day like today would be perfect to, not only show your devotion and affection towards a special person in your life, but to also give that same attention and outpouring of love to your business, which is just as worthy of a little extra TLC.

Here a 3 ways to show your business a little extra love on Valentine’s Day:

 

Give Your Business a “Sexy” Makeover:

Visual branding is important. The way you present your business…your website, social media, marketing materials, etc., will play a key role in shaping a potential client’s perception of your brand, and whether or not they will choose to work with you. Take a look at your current branding and determine if it accurately reflects the look, feel, and message that you want your business to convey. If not, it’s time to give it a visually appealing, aka “sexy” upgrade.

Romance Your Hustle:

Often times, when you have romantic interest in someone, you pull out all the stops to show your love. You choose to date and spend quality time when you truly want to get to know someone and are looking toward a future with them. The same goes for your business. You have to put in the time and the work. Romance your business by taking it on regular “dates” to plan for your success. Get out of your regular work space and find a nice ambiance to really dig deep and learn everything about your business. What’s currently working? What’s not working? Where do you need to pivot and shift? How much money do you have coming in? How much is going out? Just like when you’re dating someone new, you can’t be afraid to ask the necessary questions. You can also use these business dates to determine your social media and marketing strategies, create quality content, and develop a solid profit plan for your business.

Don’t be a Cheap Date

Trust me,  no one likes a cheap date! Just the same, your business will not thrive if you are a cheap business owner. Loosen up your pockets and invest in your business! It cannot, and will not, thrive in the “free zone”…you know, downloading all of the freebies, attending only free webinars and classes, and not putting in a penny towards your business’ growth. It’s just not possible. If you want to win in business, you’ll have to get comfortable spending the money necessary to take it to the next level.

Remember, your business needs love too!

How will you show yours a little extra love today?

2016 Year In Review: My Year of GROWTH

As I sit here typing on this eve of the New Year, I am thinking about how absolutely giddy and excited I am about all that is to come in 2017!

2016 seemed to be a pretty rough year for many people. All throughout my social media feeds, I’ve seen countless posts with anticipation to end such a dreary year, and with hope that this upcoming year will be much better.

I am a generally happy, bubbly, and optimistic person (you kinda have to be when it is your job to motivate and speak life into others), but I must say that I experienced several challenges and personal setbacks this year that has me running to the finish line, and ready to leap into a year full of happiness, fulfillment, and abundance. In fact, I have declared that my word for 2017 will be LEAP.

Last year, I wrote my very first “Year in Review” post, and it was very therapeutic in a way. It was great to reflect back on all of the positive things that happened in my life as opposed to dwelling on the things that didn’t quite go as planned, or that downright sucked.

So, here goes…I bring to you my highlight reel of 2016:

Doubled My Number of Speaking Gigs

I achieved one of my top goals for the year, which was to double the number of speaking engagements that I had in 2015. Mission accomplished! Speaking and teaching are undoubtedly my two most favorite aspects of my business, so not only do I get to do what I absolutely LOVE, but I truly feel like I’m walking in my purpose every time I step on a stage or in front of a room. In 2017, I hope to keep it going by doubling my numbers again…and also to add INTERNATIONAL SPEAKER to my resume (Yes, I’m claiming it in advance!)

Launched My First Mini Course

This was a major accomplishment for two reasons: 1) I had been sitting on this idea for over a year, and finally took the time to make it a reality. I launched it as a mini course first, as a sort of test run leading up to the launch of my signature course, of the same name, that will be launching this year. 2.) I had absolutely NO knowledge of how to go about getting this done, but I didn’t let that stop me. I did the research. I implemented what I learned, and I DID IT. It was a lesson in not waiting until things are perfect, but instead, just getting started and improving as you go. I got a lot of really good feedback, and am so excited to launch the full course, in addition to several other courses, this year. Stay tuned!

Mogul Marketing Bootcamp Mini Course Launch

Hosted My First Signature Event: Say YES to Your Dreams

Another “just do it” moment. I was going to wait until the new year to host this event, jut because I felt that January was the time when most people go into vision board/planning/goal setting mode. But I realized that mid-year was the perfect time to do an assessment of where you are in the pursuit of your goals and to get a little motivation to keep going. I’m happy to say that the event was a success! Each and every panel speaker was AMAZING and the women in attendance walked away with a lot of valuable information and the confidence to boldly walk in the direction of their dreams. Planning is already underway for the next event, which will be a little different, but equally, if not more, wonderful than the first!

Say YES to Your Dreams Vision Board Event

Launched Moguls Give Back

I literally started Moguls Give Back on a whim! I wanted to find a way to give back to my community, and I figured what better way than to start my own initiative?! The goal was for my fellow entrepreneurs to band together and do our part to service our communities.  I reached out to my tribe via social media and was overwhelmed and thrilled at the amount of support it received. In the summer, we hosted a School Supply Drive where we were able to bless almost 100 students with all of the supplies they needed to have a successful school year. In November, we hosted a turkey giveaway, where we were able to bless 6 wonderful families. This could not have been done without the generous donations we received. A special thank you goes out to Kenya Kirkland of Shop 1323 for letting us host the first event at her boutique, and Shelley Mechette of The PowHERful Woman for being an official partner for the second event. In 2017, I hope to take these efforts to the next level by officially forming a non-profit 501(c)3, and hosting more charity events throughout the year.

Weight Loss Journey

My weight has been a big struggle for me for YEARS. Prior to being involved in the car accident that left me unable to walk for nearly 6 months, I was finally able to get a hold of it by dropping nearly 40lbs. Unfortunately, after that horrible ordeal, I just could not seem to get it back under control. The main reason was because I had on-going ankle issues that prevented me from working out the way that I would have liked to. This year, however, I decided not to let that hold be back anymore. I invested in a personal trainer (shout out to Lance Branchman) and finally started working toward my health and fitness goals again. In just the last two months of the year, I’ve been able to see a difference in, not only the way I look, but more importantly, the way I feel. Although the scale has only just recently started to be my friend (I wasn’t seeing much of a difference in my weight), I experienced so many non-scale victories, such as my clothes fitting better, loss of inches and a change in my body composition, better eating habits, and overall feeling healthier and stronger (I no longer feel like I am going to pass out after each workout lol). Also, its given me increased confidence that is showing up in other aspects of my life, and business. Therefore, I will continue training into the new year, and who knows…I may even run a marathon or two before the year is up!

Made Memories and Enjoyed Life

This was probably my most important fete of 2016…MAKING the time to experience life and make memories with those that I love. There is nothing like a near fatal experience to make you realize just how precious life is. Over the last few years, I’ve had this feeling that I’ve been merely existing, as opposed to living. This year, I can truly say I took my first steps to changing that by getting out there and making memories with my loved ones. After all, one of the main reasons I started my business was to have full freedom and control of my time, and because I wanted to live life on my own terms. In 2016, I finally figured out exactly what that looks like…

Took a couple of Kid-cations (vacays with the kiddos)…a road trip to San Diego and to visit family in Texas…

Spent a lot of quality time going on family outings and experiencing fun, new places.

I know a lot of people that experienced quite a few challenges and hardships in 2016 (myself included), but it’s so important to take a step back and remind yourself of all of the things that went well, all of the things you’re grateful for, and the many blessings that you have in spite of everything else.

Now that you’ve had a glimpse into my year, I want to know:

4 Business Lessons a Comedian Taught Me…

Kevin Hart on Steve Harvey Morning ShowPhoto via Kevin Hart’s Facebook Page

Yesterday morning, as I was taking my kiddos to school, I happened to catch an interview with comedian Kevin Hart on the The Steve Harvey radio show.

Although I love his work as a comedian (he is HILARIOUS!) and actor, I didn’t realize that he was also a phenomenal businessman.

During his interview, he dropped some major jewels that can be translated to pretty much any business.

Here are 4 business lessons Kevin Hart taught me…

1. Don’t let NO stop you. Several studios turned down his idea to turn his live standup shows into movies because they said they would never bring in a profit. Since then, he’s gone on to make over a hundred million dollars and has become one of the highest paid comedians ever.

2. Believe in your brand and vision enough to INVEST IN YOURSELF. He used over 13 million of his own money to fund a project that others would not back, because he was that passionate about it, and was willing to TAKE A RISK for what he believed in. He went on to sell out a 50,000 seat stadium…as a comedian. That has never been done. He made history!

3. If there is a void in the marketplace, FILL IT. He now has his own subscription based network, similar to Tidal. He saw them raking in the money and thought to himself that there was nothing out there like that for comedy, so HE CREATED IT!

4. Use your platform to HELP OTHERS GET ON. He said when you see him going hard promoting his stuff, its not just for his gain. It’s so that he can continue provide opportunities and platforms for others. His vision is bigger than himself. When you make it to the top, its only right that you reach back and pull others up with you, especially those that helped you get there.

I have a new found respect for Kevin. His work ethic is something to be admired.

How can you use these lessons in your business?

Recap: The List Tour Conference

If you want your business to flourish and grow, it is an absolute MUST, that you continue to invest in ongoing training, seek more knowledge, and learn new skills.

A great way to do that is to attend workshops, conferences, and live events that will teach you new strategies and equip you with the resources  and tools you need to take your biz to the next level.  I swear every time I leave an event, I walk away feeling pumped up and ready to take the (business) world by storm!

So, when the the opportunity arose for me to attend The List Tour conference, hosted by LaTanya Washington, founder of LW Special Events Management, I knew that I HAD to be there.

The List Tour Los Angeles Business Conference

What a wonderful event it was! The day was filled with a stellar line up of speakers.  Overall, it was a high energy, fun-filled day of learning, networking, and growth.  Attendees left with actionable steps that they could implement to uplevel their businesses and processes in the areas of marketing, branding, systems, staffing and much, much more.

Highlights included a breakout jam session to Beyonce’s Formation, a Shark Tank-style pitch session that brought contestants to tears at the possibility of seeing their vision come to life, and witnessing a pair of mini-moguls share their business concept.

Check out some of my key takeaways:

Dr. Monica Wilson – Psychotherapist, Business Consultant

– Don’t sit on your gifts. To thine own self be true. Turn your pain into your purpose.

– Your purpose is not about you…it’s bigger than you. You’re making a mark in the world, unseen or seen.

Constance Moonzwe – Executive Director, ITH Staffing

Constance Moonzwe The List Tour Los Angeles Business Conference
– Sometimes you may have the vision, but you may not be the right person to drive your business forward. Figure out what you’re good at, what you’re not good at, and partner with someone to help you.

– Finding ‘A Players” begins with setting the bar high. Your organization doesn’t have roomfor B, C, or D players. A players are people that can do 90% of the position well.

Dawn Osborne – Next Level Management & Consulting

Dawn Osborne The List Tour Los Angeles Business Conference– Focused action beats brilliance every time. Genius is 1% inspiration, 99% perspiration.

– You need a niche instead of being a generalist – jack of all trades, master of none.

– If you don’t believe in your product or service, do something else. You have to believe in it in order to sell it to someone else.

Lydia & Peter Mehit – Custom Business Planning & Solutions

Lydia and Peter Mehit The List Tour Los Angeles Business Conference

– Focus on the customer FIRST, then the product. If you know who your customer is, then you’ll know how to market to them.

– Price your products or services at a price that YOU are uncomfortable. If you are comfortable, you are not charging enough.

Queenie Johnson – Brand Strategist, Mama Be Brilliant

Queenie Johnson The List Tour Los Angeles Business Conference

Things you need to release (that you’ve been taught)

  1. Fear
  2. A mentality that there is not enough
  3. The thought that you can’t trust anybody.
  4. The need for validation. The reason you’re stagnant right now is because someone is not telling you “good job.”
  5. Fear of failure

– You’ve been trained out of your authority, and it’s YOUR job to decide to rule your world.

– Have a big message, but tailor it according to who you’re speaking to.

– Your message has to pull at the gut, count the cost, and be energetically exciting, and it has to be about THEM, not you.

Sweenie May – Marketing Mastermind Coach

Sweeney Mae The List Tour Los Angeles Business Conference

Profile your target market – Study and speak their language.

Learn (and master) the difference between a soft sell vs. a hard sell

The day was PACKED with valuable content…no fluff. Exactly what I look for when determining the events that are worth my time and monetary investment. The List Tour is definitely worth it!

It was also a great opportunity to network, and see a few of my fave women in business:

BIG thank you, and congratulations goes out to LaTonya Washington for organizing such a wonderful event. It was such an honor to be a part of this interactive experience!

3 Reasons Your Business Is NOT Making Money…and How to Fix It!

3 Reasons Your Biz is NOT Making Money

Let’s face it: we’re all in business to make money. Even if you’re doing something that you absolutely LOVE and would do in a heartbeat if you weren’t getting paid, the reality is you have bills to pay, so you need your business to generate income.

As a business/marketing consultant, I speak with several entrepreneurs on a daily basis, and often get the question “why am I not making any money?” You’re active on social media, blogging on a weekly basis, attending all of your local networking events…you know, all of the things that you should be doing. But, you still can’t seem to land enough clients to bring in a consistent cash flow. What gives?

There are many different factors that can contribute to this, but I am going to break down the three most common reasons your business may not be bringing in
money:

You’re a Jack/Jill of All Trades

You are a photographer, but you also have your own jewelry line, sell homemade candles, makeup, and weight loss shakes. Your goal is to bring in multiple revenue streams. The problem? Your potential customers are confused! They don’t really know exactly what it is that you do because you are offering many different products and services, none of which go hand in hand with one another.

The Fix: Niche down. Decide on the ONE thing that you want to be known as the go-to person for, and do away with the rest. You can still create multiple streams of income by finding several different ways to profit from your primary offering (Example: if you are a photographer, consider adding a photo booth, teaching photography workshops, etc).

You Don’t Have a Real Plan
Simply put: you’re winging it! You’re doing any and everything that you think you should do to find clients, but you really don’t have a solid strategy in place. Have you ever heard the saying “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail?” Well, it holds truth when it comes to marketing your business as well. If you want to attract more clients and start making money, you’ll have to create a strategic roadmap outlining how you will do so.

The Fix: Create a list of specific marketing activities that you will consistently
engage in to increase brand awareness and attract new clients. Then implement, implement, implement! Be sure to include a timeframe to monitor each activity and measure its effectiveness before moving on to something else.

You Aren’t Selling Anything
When I first started my business, I knew that I wanted to teach other entrepreneurs how to create a marketing strategy for their business. I put up a website, I offered tips on social media, but I really didn’t have anything to sell, and, you guessed it, I wasn’t making a dime. Now, it may seem like a no-brainer that in order to make money, you have to have a product or service to sell, but I’ve come to realize that I wasn’t the only one not actually selling anything, while expecting clients to come my way.

The Fix: Get clear on your services and offerings. You should be able to clearly and confidently tell potential clients what you do and how it will benefit them if they choose to work with you.

4 Tips to Stop Chasing Clients, and Start ATTRACTING Them

Stop Chasing Start Attracting

As a marketing strategist and business coach, the number one question that I hear from business owners is: “how do I get more clients?”  My response: you must create an effective marketing strategy that will allow you to stop CHASING clients, and start ATTRACTING them.

There are a lot of components to this, but to quickly break it down, these four steps will allow you to do just that:

Know Your Target Audience 

A common mistake that entrepreneurs make is thinking that EVERYONE is their client. While it may be true that anyone can use your product or service, when it comes to marketing your business, you have to get really specific about the type of clients you want to work with. What do they look like? How much money do they make? Where do they live? How do they speak, act, and dress? Take some time to create your ideal client profile. Knowing this information will  help you weed out those who would not be the right fit for your business, and attract those that you can better serve.

Create a Clear Marketing Message

When putting together your marketing message, act as if you are talking to one specific person: your ideal client. Focus on their pain points and the specific results that they will receive as a direct result of working with you (ex: saving money, less stress, etc.)

Be Strategic About Pricing

Pricing plays a big part in whether or not someone decides to use your services, but maybe not in the way that you may think.  Oftentimes, creative entrepreneurs will under price their products/services because they think that is the way to entice clients. But that strategy actually works to the contrary. Strategic pricing is all about perceived value. Make sure that your clients understand the value of what you do. It should be reflected in the description of what they will receive in working with you, as well as the quality of your marketing materials. Know your worth, and highlight why you are worth every penny!

Be Consistent

A key part of marketing is knowing where your ideal clients are hanging out, then determining how to get your marketing message in front of them. However you decide to do that, whether it’s blogging, social media, email marketing, etc., the key is to be consistent with your efforts.   It generally takes a client 5-7 points of contact before they are ready to make a purchasing decision, and they will only buy from those that they know, like, and trust. Being consistent with your efforts will keep you at the top of their mind when it is time to sign on the dotted line.

Is Your Business Summer Ready? (5 Things You Can Automate Today)

Staycation

A couple of days ago, I returned from a mini staycation to San Diego with my little ones (the pic above shows how much fun we were having visiting SeaWorld and other local attractions!)

The cool thing is, even though I seemingly stepped away from my business for a few days, during the week no less, I was STILL able to bring in revenue and book new clients while I was away!

Now, if you’re anything like me, the summer months can sometimes get a little crazy chaotic: the kids are home every day (and of course they’re bored every moment of the day!), I’m playing taxi mom for all of the sports and extracurricular activities,  there are vacations to plan, social gatherings to attend…needless to say, there is a never-ending demand on my time more than usual.

When I first started my business, the Summer was killer on my business. My productivity was at an all-time low, which meant my income suffered as well.  I had to come up with a solution because, well, bills still have to be paid in the summertime, right?!

The solution: to automate as much of my business as possible!  This meant that I could still enjoy all of the fun that came along with the summertime, without having to be tied to my computer all day, every day, or worrying about missing out on income. After all, one of the main reasons I decided to become an entrepreneur was for more flexibility with my schedule.
.
If you spend even a small amount of time on social media, I’m sure you’ve seen a lot of posts about people getting their bodies “summer ready,”  but I want to know, is your BUSINESS summer ready?

If not, the number one piece of advice that I would offer you is to automate, automate, automate!

I am a big fan of the “set it and forget it” method! Automating certain aspects of your business, as well as creating systems, frees up so much of your time, allows you to work on more income producing tasks, spend more time with your family, and do the things you enjoy.

It is also especially helpful if you are still working a 9-5 and have a limited amount of time to work on your biz (I know all about that struggle!)

A few things that you can automate include:

Email Marketing – Most email marketing tools allow you to create automated emails to go out based on different triggers, such as when someone signs up to your email list, or simply a specified date and time that you set. Choose a day of the week to write your emails in batches and set them to go out weekly. Boom! Set it and forget it!

Blogging – If you follow my blog, you know that I have a weekly Mogul in the Making entrepreneur spotlight that is published on Mondays. I set aside Thursday as my “blogging days” to write up the post and use the scheduling feature to post it the following Monday. Boom! Set it and forget it!

Online Client Scheduling – Do you offer client consultations or one-on-one appointments with your clients?  It can sometimes become a hassle (and very time consuming) to go back and forth via email, trying to find a date and time that works for both you and your client. To save time, use an online scheduling tool (I use Calendly) to send to my clients. No more playing phone tag. I send the link to my calendar that lists my availability and let the client choose a match that works for them. Easy peasy!

Payment Processing – I believe in making the payment process as easy as possible. Who has time to personally send individual invoices? Not I! So, when a client is ready to work with me, I direct them to my Paypal link to choose the level in which they’d like to work with me (one time VIP intensive coaching session or 5 week mentoring session). The description of the services are already included and an invoice is automatically generated. They can also pay right on my website! Done and DONE!

Evergreen Courses – Creating evergreen courses (a course that requires a one time setup, usually delivered via email) are the perfect way to generate income “while you sleep” (or in this case, while you’re enjoying your summer!) With the proper systems in place, your clients can purchase and access the course information without you ever having to lift a finger after the initial setup.

I’m sure you started your business to have more time freedom, and to live the lifestyle that you desire, and deserve. Having the proper systems in place will allow you to do just that!

Take some time over the next few days to get your business systems in order. Trust me, your business, and your bank account, will thank you later!

Here’s to having a wonderful AND profitable Summer 2016!

During my presentation, I discussed the importance of pursuing your passion and walking in your purpose.  I also had the opportunity to share my story of being laid off from my corporate job, being involved in a near fatal car accident that left me with a shattered ankle and 6 months of being unable to walk, to finally realizing my calling as a business coach and motivational speaker.

When I leave this world, I want to be one hundred percent used up…totally empty. I don’t want to have a drop of talent, knowledge, resources, gifts, etc. that I did not share with the world…and neither should you. So START NOW. That business you want to start, start it. That book you want to write, write it. Whatever it is that you have been wanting to do, there is no better time than the present. It’s time to start walking in your purpose.

Speaking is absolutely my favorite part of my business.  I love sharing my story, because it is truly one of perseverance, resilience, and a will to succeed despite any obstacle that may be thrown your way.

As I stated during the opening of my talk “If you get nothing else from hearing my story, I want this to be your takeaway: when God tells you to move (on your purpose), you MOVE.”

So, what are you waiting for? Do you feel that what you are doing right now is what you have been called to do? If not, what do you need to do in order for you to start walking in your purpose?

To Your Prosperity and Success,
