Dream Big: Show Up the Bigger and Better Version of Yourself

Listen up, buttercup!

Some of you are moving into the new year with HUGE goals - I know I am! I spend a whole day with my own coach mapping out 2020, which is about to be the biggest quantum leap I've ever had btw.

Having that container to uncover where my blocks are, talk through the stop signs, tell my ego to shut up, and step fully into my power feels good for me and my business. I do it every year. And every year my business grows exponentially.

Because I create space for it. Having high level support is non-negotiable for me.


We laughed, I cried, did the internal work and now I feel ready to rock. it was a whole vibe. But - man, am I excited about what's coming!!! PS - also hiring a new OBM, so if you know one please have them shoot me an email.

One thing that I know for sure is you are going to have to show up as a bigger, better version of yourself if you want the bigger, better version of life.

Quick Journaling exercise for you:

Write down your 2020 Vision.

Then after it's all laid out, ask yourself, who do i need to become in order to make all of this manifest.

For some of you, you will need to be more disciplined, others will need to be more intentional, others will need to stop letting fear be the stop sign. Some of you will need to stop overthinking and just do the dang thing! Whatever it is...That's the work you need to do.

Cuz we aren't gonna go into the new year with the same negative beliefs and patterns that don't serve us. 


Every moment is a holy instant where you can make a new choice. 


So... Tell me, who is this new version of you? I'd love to hear 👂🏽☺ 👀

FACT: Small-minded people have no business speaking into your life

We ALL know "those people"... 

   🤦🏾‍♀️ The people who think life should be designed in a "logical" way. Ewwww.
   🤦🏾‍♀️ The people who think average, normal, and standard apply to everyone. Yuck.
   🤦🏾‍♀️ The people who live life based on lack and scarcity. Man! How sad.
   🤦🏾‍♀️ The people who have made fear so normal that they don't even recognize how distructive it is. What a terrible way to live.
   🤦🏾‍♀️ The people who think "reality" is a blanket construct that everyone should abide by. Clearly we haven't met - cuz my reality is VERY different than most.
   🤦🏾‍♀️ The people who think they know more about you than you do, more about your calling than you do, more about your life, business, desires, dreams, etc... There is always someone. And they are always 100% wrong.

😢 The sad part is - these people are probably not strangers. They are your partner, best friend, your mom, your pastor, your life coach, your therapist, your dad, your neighbor, your co-worker, your associate at church, etc.

So it's not like you can just cut 'em out. But you can set better boundaries.

Here's what you do:

🛑 Stop talking to these people about your moves. Stop making small talk about your small business. And PLEASE stop talking about your big scary dreams with small minded people. Don't do it!

It will just leave you doubting yourself in the end. 😟

They will always have something negative to say. They will always bring the black cloud. And they will always ☔ rain on your parade and have the nerve to disguise it as the "voice of reason". Um... Just no.

And this is why I love what I do. A huge part of my relationship with my clients is me showing up for them as the antithesis of all the above. I've helped hundreds step into their highest and best, most successful selves.

YOU deserve to have it ALL. People who don't believe that won't experience it. Period! You don't need permission to be who God created you to be. Believe that!

Small minded people have no business speaking into your life. Stop giving them an in.

They are just mad they can't do what you do - which is a whole other discussion on mirrors. Let's save that for a different day.

Social Media Hack: Increase Your Online Presence

Give more than you get. Seems simple, but...A lot of people don't get this.

See, social media is tricky! To the naked eye, you think that it's all about the person posting the pic.

But the best online influencers know that it's not about them at all! It's always about their followers.

  1. 1
    What do they want to see?
  2. 2
    What do they need to hear?
  3. 3
    How will you show up as a leader in your industry with your expert content to help them?
  4. 4
    Whatever the answer is.
  5. 5
    That's what you post.

Even my lifestyle posts and my pictures of food will offer some kind of insight.
If you're not getting tons of engagement - it could be that you're not GIVING anything worth engaging in.

So... What should you give?

  • Expert advice.
  • Valuable tips.
  • Usable tricks.
  • Authoritative insight.
  • Transformational messages.
  • All the things!

And I know someone is about to ask me - how much is too much? I don't want to give it all away!

You won't.
I mean... If you can give away all of your industry knowledge in an Instagram post, we may need to find you another industry my friend.

So... How will you give today? What can your followers expect to see?

Feel free to promote yourself with a preview down below - maybe it will pique someone's interest!

The Difference Between Workshop, Webinar, Training and Masterclass

Alright, I’m sure you’ve seen this all over the place.

Different entrepreneurs have different names for all of their trainings.

Why?

What do they mean?

And what’s the difference between them?

I mean when you sign up for them, they are all so similar, aren’t they?

You get some sort of training video and sometimes people sell to you at the end.

Sometimes they’re free. Sometimes you have to pull out your credit card.

Sometimes they are professional with beautifully branded slides. Sometimes someone is just speaking to you from their bed.

So you would think that maybe that’s the reason they are called a bunch of different things, wouldn’t you?

But that’s not always the case.

Here’s the thing...

Sometimes people call something a webinar because that’s what their coach told them to do or that’s what their favorite online entrepreneur is calling them right now.

Other times, it depends on what keywords are working well. Maybe “masterclass” sounds better than “workshop” so people will overuse that term for a few months until it’s no longer a buzzword. 

Or maybe Facebook ads seem to charge more when you want “webinar” sign-ups as opposed to getting people on a “free training”.

It all depends.

But at the end of the day, what’s most important is figuring out what YOU should do in your business, right?

Because not only are you trying to figure out what to name your new creation, you’re also wondering whether you should give it away for free or whether you should charge your people for it.

That’s why you’re in luck because that is what I will be covering in my newest video, The Difference Between Workshop, Webinar, Training and Masterclass.

You can check it out here: 

In a few minutes, you’re going to find out exactly what I use in my business and I can’t wait to share it with you!

Go check it out and I’d love to hear what you think.

Don’t forget to like the video if you enjoyed it and leave me a comment. I always read through them because I love hearing from you!

10 Things to Know Before You Become an Entrepreneur

10 things to Know Before You Become an Entrepreneur

By Dr. Tracy Timberlake


So you’ve been thinking about doing the whole entrepreneur thing.

I get it.

It’s really enticing, isn’t it?

You see other people bragging on their social media about how much money they make and how they are their own bosses (aka how they don’t have to answer to anyone else or be micromanaged all day, every day.

There are so many things that might attract you to entrepreneurship.

It might be the fact that you can take vacations days whenever you feel like it, sleep in until noon because you know you don’t have to work on anyone else’s timelines or maybe it’s the fact that you can run to pick up your kids from their piano recital in the middle of a work day without having to beg and plead to take your lunch break at a later time. Time freedom and freedom of schedule is one of the biggest benefits of being an entrepreneur.

Or maybe entrepreneurship is calling your name because you don’t want to wait until you’re 65 to see the world. You want to travel to every corner of the earth, tasting delicious food, learning about new cultures and making connections with amazing people.

For some people, it almost seems like a calling… like something they have to do.

Whatever your reason may be for leaving your 9-5 and starting the entrepreneur life, there are a few key things you should know before you get started.

I wanted to put this list together for you because although it may seem like all fun and games from what you may see on social media, I don’t want you to be fooled – most people will only show you their highlight reel.

So if you’re really going to commit to becoming an entrepreneur, I want to make sure you go into with both eyes open and armed with as much knowledge as you can get your hands on.

In my latest video, I am sharing 10 Things to Know Before You Become an Entrepreneur.

Now, this isn’t all of them. Everyone’s journey is going to be unique and you will only learn to navigate the joys and challenges of entrepreneurship once you dive right in.

But for now, this is a pretty solid place to start!


Here’s a recap of what I will be covering in the video


1.

Money is easy mindset is not, you cannot expect everyone to understand.

2.

You have to participate.

3.

Don't underestimate the time it will take to reach your goals, but don't over estimate either.

4.

Learn to trust yourself.

5.

Focus on money making activities first!

6.

You decide the outcome. No one else.

7.

It's always about service. Not sales.

8.

Presentation matters.

9.

Set up your business systems so you're not working 24 hours a day.

10.

Get help.


Check it out and I'd love to know what you think!

#1 Content Strategy

You’re gonna wanna hit save on this one! #trustme

It’s a content strategy that people rarely ever talk about, but I learned this long ago – as a beauty #vlogger, it’s hasn’t failed me since. And I’m sharing.

Ready?⁣

SOCIAL MEDIA SYNDICATION!⁣

Most people didn’t dive into this entrepreneurship thing to be social media managers. I don’t know anyone who has 18 hours a day to create endless captions, snap umpteen selfies, and post till their fingers pop off.⁣

So, what’s an entrepreneur to do?⁣

Syndicate!⁣

Let me give you an example – though, if you follow me, especially on multiple platforms, you have seen this a 💯 times.⁣

Instructions

¬ upload a #youtube video.⁣

¬ share the link on LinkedIn, Facebook Group, Twitter, and Pinterest.⁣

¬ send an email to my VIP list with the link and a little explanation of the video, basically reasons to watch.⁣

¬ tweet out the link 3 more times within the first 48 hours.⁣

¬ create a 30-second trailer for Instagram post it, with captivating thumbnail.⁣

¬ edit a 15 second IG story, and add a swipe up to the video.⁣

¬ post that same 15-second story to Facebook stories and snap chat.⁣

¬ write a blog post for your website (embed YouTube video, it’s good for SEO backlinks).⁣

¬ in a day or two share the link to the blog on all social media platform.⁣

¬ if the video is inspirational, motivational or transformational, capture a quote, create a graphic and schedule it for 3 days after w/ CTA that leads to YT.⁣

¬ go out, live your life cuz you just took 1 piece of content and syndicated the heck out of it. Yay you.⁣

Will people see it multiple times? Maybe, but reach is like a <20% plus if it’s good, it’s good! And your people won’t mind (that’s my “make sure you create good stuff” clause 😉 lol⁣
