How to Use Emojis šŸ˜Ž in Your Communication to Grab Attention Socially

Communication Methods are Changing Due to Social Media and the Reality TV GenerationšŸ“ŗ

One thing that the Reality TV generation has influenced is how people communicate with each other. Abbreviated slang, such as LOL, ROFL, or TBH began with teenagers sending text messages to each other as their main form of communication. Long gone are the days of push button phones with long, spirally cords stretched behind closed doors for private phone conversations.

And with the birth of emoji keyboards, many baby boomers are left in the dark trying to figure out which smiley facešŸ˜ or hand gestureāœŒ is appropriate for the conversation at hand.

Even the legal world is having to figure out what emojis mean for interpretation of the law.

Emojis are increasingly coming up in court cases. Judges are struggling with how to interpret them.

Emojis Have Taken Over Social MediašŸ˜Ž

According to Wikipedia, "emojis are ideograms and smileys...including facial expressions, common objects, places and types of...

Iā€™m Calling BS on Fast-track Launching for Coaches and Consultants

You heard me. 

I’m calling BS on fast-track launching for coaches and consultants.

Gurus out there are always talking about spending massive amounts of money to cold traffic to get people into webinars or on your list to download some piddly one page resource that creates a win. 

Yes, I’ve touted the same strategies before, but I’ve changed my mind, as a woman has the right to do, and I’m calling bullshit on the same ole techniques and strategies of the 20-teens.

I've seen the evidence and know this overnight success is a unicorn.

It’s time to grow up and act like real businesses who don’t push get-rich-quick digital schemes, webinars that bring in loads of traffic and buyers (they’re dying, by the way), and slick upsell/downsell funnels with timers running out to get the best deal before it’s gone.

No. You don’t need all that. 

It’s time to get back to basics and act like real businesses with real...

It's Not Too Late to Spring Clean Your Business and Your Life

As spring is coming to an end, those of us who have been busy working hard in our businesses and shuffling kids around to get through the final days of school may not have had the time to do the proverbial spring cleaning that we all need to do.

Spring Clean Your Closets

In 2017, I wrote a blog post about spring cleaning your closets and your personal finances. The closet situation was more about my daughters, so when I dumped their entire closets out on the floor in their room to sort through and put back on the most needed items, we had quite the mess to muddle through.

Now that's a lot of clothes and shoes!

Make a Plan and Go Through It Step-by-Step

  1. Dump everything out of the closets and sort into like items.
  2. Clean the closets of dust bunnies. Make a stuffed animal from them if it’s been long enough.
  3. Line up bags and boxes to separate items we aren’t keeping into donations, trash and hand-me-downs.
  4. Put all items we are keeping back into the closet where they...

Elevate Your Business By Attending Live Events

events May 23, 2019

I traveled farther than anyone else to attend Elevate Live, a live event put on by women for women (there was one man) in the coaching space. Nearly everyone was British, so this Tennessee girl's accent stuck out like a sore thumb.

Gemma Went, the woman behind this event, is a leading UK business and mindset coach. This was her first attempt, and she knocked it out of the park.

Meeting People in Person Solidifies Relationships

My purpose in going to Sutton Coldfield, a tiny town outside Birmingham, England, was to meet with like-minded women in business who I could learn from and hopefully they could learn from me as well. It didn't hurt that the New Hall Hotel & Spa was an amazing setting for such an event.

With about 60 women in attendance, I was able to meet over a dozen of them and have deeper discussions with 4 or 5 of them. Sure, I could have tried to target these ladies in groups or online somehow with my content, but there's nothing like meeting in person...

100 Evergreen Niches ā€“ A Comprehensive Guide to Niching Your Life Coaching or Consulting Business

Uncategorized May 21, 2019

To succeed in this world takes maximizing your potential. A life coach is professionally trained to help you reach your goals no matter what area of focus you need help in. The four (4) main areas to niche within are relationships, health, leisure, and career.

Covering all the bases at once is like trying to butter everyone’s toast. There’s simply not enough of you to go around to help everyone at the same time. Marketing is also much simpler when you focus on one area of life and go deep into that particular topic.

4 Reasons Why Coaches and Consultants Should Consider Creating an Online Course

As a coach or consultant do you often repeat information to your clients that could be documented and used in a digital course?

Anything that is repetitive in your business can be outsourced. The same goes for information. Anything you teach or require from your clients can be documented in a step-by-step format that helps your clients progress, saves you and your clients time and money, and with the right marketing could bring you a healthy passive income stream.

If you find yourself repeating things as a coach that you consider pre-requisite knowledge before you can help your clients achieve their goals, creating a course would give them the foundation they need to be able to work with you.
