    Essential Takeaways:
    0:00   Goals, vision boards, whiteboards, boxes of journals, blueprints, all the visions and plans that you have for your business and your life. Oh, trust me, I'm sure they're all amazing. But did you know that there's an easier way to achieve all these thoughts and ideas that you write down? Now, if you've followed the podcast for any length of time, you know, I'm all about mindset that I believe mindset is a strategy. And that with the right mindset, you can achieve anything that you set out to do.
    3:36   I want to share three steps with you to help you become more efficient, be more effective in turning your thoughts into actions, all those things that you have running around all those ideas, positive ones and negative ones, how to turn these thoughts into actions. 
    6:14   Getting these thoughts out of your mind and done on paper, will help you find the right place to start, right and how to turn these thoughts that you have into action, because you can now break them down into smaller, more manageable steps that you can start implementing and seeing some instant gratification.
    7:20   I'm all about you know, future planning. But I also don't want you to think about the things in the past, right? I want you to put your energy, where you can adjust your thoughts and your plans to the present. Because when you do that, you'll actually move closer, faster to achieving your overall bigger goals. 
    9:15   I mean, heck, My motto is to always be more, be more adventurous, you know, do more, you know be be more of whatever you want to work on that living in that zone---have more and be more sometimes falls in that overthinking zone because you're constantly wondering, Will this be enough?
    10:49   Once you complete these first few steps, you might find that you still have trouble turning your thoughts into an action. So let's see if we can determine what's stopping you. No fear, no distraction, it's time to shift that mindset and remove these limiting beliefs. There is no better time than the present to start reframing and rethinking your thoughts.
    13:30   Sometimes we work so hard in our future. And we get we want to get somewhere so fast, and we get there. And we're disappointed. So I want you to hone in on what you're working on right now. Because you might just have a new vision, you might just find out that when you write all these things down, it can be a new, a new vision for a new business. Maybe it's a new product that you want to offer. Maybe it's something else when you look at this list that you can get excited about. And as I mentioned staying present with your thoughts, and meeting them where you are. Remember, you are right where you're supposed to be and you're doing fabbo at that.
    16:20   You'll be amazed how much more you can accomplish if you just do what you say you're going to do. Rather than getting stuck in a thought loop or overwhelming or overthinking or the I can't stay out of that negative space.

    70: Hate Writing Social Media Captions & #allthethings?

    70: Hate Writing Social Media Captions & #allthethings?

     "Do you struggle with writing social media captions? Do you find it difficult to come up with something to say on Instagram? Do you ever wonder "is this thing on?"
     
    Let's talk about how templates and swipe copy can change the game for you. Social media doesn't have to be so hard!
     
    We’ve taken the guesswork out social media for you with a collection of ad-lib style Instagram captions for wedding professionals."

    Episode 70 features guest Serena Waller from a recent Clubhouse room.  You'll find more like this on the social audio app Clubhouse in the Wedding Pros Club.  Serena focuses on Social Media Management + Strategy for the Wedding & Creative Industries.

    Founder, Delegate & Elevate

    The Essential Takeaways:

    5:43     the reason that I really believe that Instagram has resonated so much specifically with couples is it gives them the opportunity to get to know you on a visual level first, because obviously, weddings are a very esthetic medium, you know, people don't come to weddings and just say, Oh, I'm just here for the food anymore. You know, they're coming for an experience, they're coming, because they want to feel something like they're looking for an emotion, they're looking for a feeling, they're looking for something beautifully created. And weddings are really all of those things for people. So when they come to Instagram, they get, they get to start to imagine their life with their partner in this space that you have created, or this experience that you're creating.

     7:50 That's part of the problem is that because we have kind of disconnected a couple, we've disconnected from that experience and don't necessarily know how to share that experience. And then I think also, again, like people just feel like, Oh, I'm not a good writer or I'm not a writer, I don't know what to say, I don't know how to say it. Do people even care are they even reading because Instagram is such a scrolling medium, people automatically assume well, no one's reading my captions. But that's really not the case. They are reading them, they are connecting with them. 

     11:41 And then do you always want to have a call to action when you're doing this on your Instagram captions?
