The best social media platform for brand awareness

The algorithm is committed to showing users accounts they search for and interact with the most. It’s not your bio or your logo, it’s your content and instagrams algorithm that determines which posts users should see most. This means that the goal is to keep you and other users on their (Instagram, Snapchat, YouTube) platform to boost revenue, engagement. The algorithm is not a negative thing. However it is not impossible to build a buzz around your brand, even with the influx of celebrity entrepreneurs and You-tubers. In my search for a solution that I know we all have found ourselves perplexed on, here’s what I found: Social media is about keeping people on THEIR apps, not sending them to YOUR website or brand. This is why your posts are not being seen or are being restricted, amongst other reasons. I value saving time and found that social media will consume your life force. Also, I didn’t want to become an entrepreneur to promote someone else’s brand but essentially that is what social media is …

6 questions to ask yourself when you feel ‘stuck’ in your career

Car didn’t start this morning… Lost your wallet… Didn’t get the job you want… Whatever it is that your battling. Life’s discontentment has the power to leave us all feeling helpless and sometimes ‘stuck.’ One of the biggest mistakes we make is relying on our minds to tell us who we during those moments. I know you’re thinking, “Well my mind knows what I want.” However, I beg to differ. Your biggest enemy can be your thoughts. What you think you ultimately become. Once you start to believe something it impacts your thoughts and your thoughts impact your actions. The reason for this is because your subconscious has a “safety zone.” According to acclaimed financial guru Dave Ramsey our minds have comfort levels. He explains in, Total Money Makeover, that that is why it is hard to make a change. Your brain learns your patterns and if you decide to take a new job or lose weight you may not get the boost you need from your thoughts. That is why reinforcement is crucial and by …

Signs you’re ready for entrepreneurship

Maybe you’re at work right now wishing you were anywhere else. Not because you don’t need the income but you have a desire burning in you to do what you love. Social media can be a catalyst as it easy to scroll to a feed of someone seemingly living their best life with their free time.  Many of us aspire to entrepreneurship because we see it as a gateway to doing what you love. However, entrepreneurship can be one of the toughest jobs out there. As the saying goes, you have to be prepared to work 80 hours instead of 40 to make a business work. A lot more goes into being an entrepreneur than having a dream. That is why being a dreamer is tough. We want to achieve but we are creatives and can often get stuck over analyzing our steps. We just want to show the world what we can do. But, you ha e to ask yourself, is it something the world needs right now? I was prepared to launch my …

Why you should forgive yourself for past mistakes

Dwelling in the past requires an insurmountable amount of energy that only leads to repeat occurrences. What you think about the most will become a reality. Our thoughts drive our actions. Dwelling on your past can keep you from making any kind of progress. No matter what stage you are at in life, you can still have a successful future. If you are constantly replaying past events looking for new ways to solve them then you’re missing out on opportunities. An opportunity presents itself daily. And not in the form of a fairy godmother granting wishes just you and the willpower to live your life on your terms. Bottom line: You have the power to achieve, create, and become the vision you have for your life, self and career.  Everything is on the table. No dream is off limits.  Stop being a victim of your high expectations and the events that you can never change. Not because you’re not awesome but because there is no going back. Heartbreak, disappointment, and failures can leave us all …
