    Balancing Creativity & Profitability: Cultivating Your Dream Business with Janelle Thomson of Lavenders Flowers

    Balancing Creativity & Profitability: Cultivating Your Dream Business with Janelle Thomson of Lavenders Flowers

    You are going to love this conversation!

    In this episode, Janelle Thomson, owner of Lavender Flowers and Tono & Co, shares her inspiring story of how she fatefully acquired Lavender Flowers (on Craigslist) and transformed it to align with her creative vision. She walks us through how she rediscovered her creative voice after hitting her "business rock bottom," and figured out a way to create financial sustainability in her business without sacrificing her creative urges.

    Ever encountered the dilemma of feeling pulled to those irresistible blooms that are outside the client's budget? Or trying to communicate budget realism to clients without causing disappointment? In our conversation, Janelle shares how she has overcome budget restrictions and managing client expectations, and we also reveal our shared discovery of how structuring tiered offerings can help you communicate value in a streamlined way while setting your business up to scale.

    Janelle and I close this episode with sharing our excitement of our upcoming in-person workshop, along with a preview of what students can expect.

    Get Your Instagram Sh** Together Bestie

    Hey friends! In this episode, I'm diving deep into Instagram strategies, and specifically how to stand out on instagram in a competitive space in 2024! We start by discussing the ever-changing social media landscape and the importance of standing out amidst the chaos. It's all about understanding that your audience may not initially care about your offerings, but it's our job to make them care by addressing their needs and desires.
    We tackle the common fear of appearing too salesy on Instagram and debunk the myth by sharing data showing that a significant percentage of users are actually making purchases on the platform regularly. Then, we delve into the challenge of standing out in a competitive arena, emphasizing the importance of authenticity and purposeful content over blindly following trends.
    One crucial aspect we cover is the difference between hacks and real, timeless strategies. While hacks might offer short-term gains, it's essential to focus on sustainable approaches that truly resonate with your audience. We also emphasize the importance of understanding your ideal client and tailoring your content to speak directly to them.
    We provide practical tips for optimizing your Instagram profile to capture leads effectively, including crafting a compelling bio, utilizing highlights strategically, and pinning posts to showcase your best content. Additionally, we explore the strategic approach to content creation, highlighting the need for each post to serve a specific purpose, whether it's to gain reach, engagement, or drive sales.
    Lastly, we outline a simple yet effective formula for crafting successful Instagram posts, which involves creating a compelling hook, providing value, and including a clear call to action. Overall, it's a comprehensive guide to leveraging Instagram for business success in 2024 and beyond, and I can't wait to share these strategies with you!
