    Why Your Client Avatar Isn't Working with Shaunda Head

    Why Your Client Avatar Isn't Working with Shaunda Head

    At this point, we've all heard the trope: You have to know your "ideal client avatar" if you want to sell to them- but let's be totally honest... how is that working out for you? What happens when you know where she lives, what she drives, what she orders at Starbucks... but she's still not buying from you or engaging with your content? What's missing from this equation? Today on the podcast I'm sitting down with Shaunda Head, the brains and beauty behind SHH Creative LLC. Shaunda is a brand strategist, mother, caregiver, and powerhouse of personal branding knowledge. Shaunda believes that your uniqueness, your stories, and your personality are the secret sauce that separates you from your competition- no matter how saturated your niche is... and today she's breaking down the what, why, and how of infusing yourself into your marketing.

    Stop Starting Over

    Stop Starting Over

    I’ve been thinking a lot lately about my business- in many ways, I feel that Self-Made Mama has really hit its stride. We’re growing month after month, I am able to work less and less while collecting more profit, and most importantly, we are impacting hundreds of new people every single month with our content and products. This feels amazing, but it has really pushed me into a state of reflection… What did it take to get here? How could I have gotten here faster? What could I have done differently, and what should I change moving forward?
     
    One theme keeps coming up over and over again as I percolate on this...and it’s this: I should have stopped starting over. Listen in to find out what I mean by this and how identifying this mistake has helped me bring my business to where it is today.
