    Quick Tip #34 Do Nothing Without Intention

    Quick Tip #34 Do Nothing Without Intention

    You've probably seen this phrase floating around on social media-- "Be intentional". When you see it, what does it mean to you?  I know I used to be a little confused about it. Like, "be intentional about what exactly? 🤔" Well, the answer didn't come to me until a couple of years ago when I started to get the sinking feeling that I wasn't fully living my best life. I was more or less just existing. You know, just going with the motions and letting life happen to me instead of being an active participant in it.  That's when I started living on purpose. I got clear about what I wanted and started doing the very deliberate work to make it happen. Now I know for a fact what being intentional is.  It's thinking, moving, showing up, saying no, and saying yes all on purpose. When you move with intention, the more aligned you are with your goals, passions, and calling on your life. In today's #QuickTip, we're exploring how to be more intentional at work, at home, and in our relationships.

    Episode No. 118 So You Wanna Purchase Your First Income Property With Kendra Barnes

    Episode No. 118 So You Wanna Purchase Your First Income Property With Kendra Barnes

    Have you been flirting around with the idea of buying an income property? Maybe a two-family flat or a small house that you can list on Airbnb for weekly rentals?  Well, in today's episode, Kendra Barnes is showing us how it is done!

    Kendra Barnes is a full-time Real Estate Investor and founder of The Key Resource. Her real estate investments afforded her the ability to retire from the 9-5 life at the age of 32. Yep! You read that right-- she got to chuck up the deuces to her government job at 32.

    The gag? She started at the very bottom and worked her way up to the real estate top—no trust fund inheritance. No power realtor mentor to show her the ropes. She just rolled up her sleeves, saved some money, studied the industry, and did the work.

    And guess what? She got good at it! So good, thousands of people started reaching out, asking if she could show them how to get in the real estate game. That's when she decided to share the real estate wealth and create her online academy, The Key Resource. The Key Resouce helps inspire, empower and educate people about the power of homeownership and Real Estate investment.

    Quick Tip #32 Don't Give Your Followers Decision Fatigue

    Quick Tip #32 Don't Give Your Followers Decision Fatigue

    If you're in the content creation game, there's a big chance that you have some links in your  Instagram bio. Links to your newsletter, services, latest blog post, YouTube channel, Pinterest, and Disney+ login. I'm kidding about that Disney+ login info. Please don't share that! But it makes sense, right? Of course, you want your followers to click, like, subscribe and purchase every single thing you've worked so hard on. So you do just that; you list every link possible in your link in bio. But what if "link stuffing" is the very reason why your followers aren't taking action? That by the time they sift through every link you've ever created, they are tired af! More isn't always a good thing. More links can lead your followers to some major decision fatigue. And we don't want that because you wind up repelling the very people you're trying to serve and attract. In today's #QuickTip, we're chatting it up about how to scale back and prioritize which links get the prized "link in bio" position. It's a lot smaller than you think, but it helps your audience take bigger action in your business.

    Episode No. 116 So You Wanna Be A Social Media Influencer with Michelle Thames

    Episode No. 116 So You Wanna Be A Social Media Influencer with Michelle Thames

    What if I told you that you don't need millions of followers to start making good money as an influencer on social media? Don't believe it? When I was first starting out, I  made $800 doing a paid brand sponsorship. The gag?  I had less than 2,000 followers on Instagram at the time, and they paid me that much for one 300 word blog post and one Instagram post. Not too shabby, huh? 
    According to Influencer Marketing Hub, "influencer marketing is estimated to have grown to have a market size of $9.7 billion in 2020. This is expected to jump to $13.8 billion in 2021." That means that there are 13.8 billion chances for you to get a piece of this influencer money pie, and Michelle Thames is here to show you how!
    Michelle Thames is a social media expert. Why? Well, because she's an influencer. In 2009 she started her blog and YouTube channel Happily Natural Ever and since then has partnered and made good money with brands like  Olay, Toyota, Subway, True Value, and many more. She also has expert chops because she was the social media strategist for one of the fastest-growing natural hair brands on the scene. Michelle knows her stuff! And today, she's answering all your questions about growing your community, partnering with dream brands, and making mega-money doing it!
