    41. Food Blog Series, Part 1: Are websites still relevant for food creators in this social media savvy world?

    There’s no denying that social media has become the go-to way to connect, and the food blog industry is no exception. As a foodie, I love to check out content from my favorite food creators every chance I get! During my lunch break, I’ll often pull up cooking videos on YouTube. When I’m waiting for my dog to finish with her vet appointment, I’ll scroll through food blogger Instagram reels, saving any yummy recipe videos that catch my eye. With so much potential reach on these social platforms, it’s easy to doubt if food blog websites are still relevant. But ignoring your website is a missed opportunity to enhance your community’s experience with your content. Let me explain why.

    39. How TikTok is Influencing Content on Other Platforms + Getting Inspiration for Your Own Content

    I don't have a TikTok, but I hear about what's popular all the time! Most of my favorite creators to follow on other platforms like YouTube and Instagram get topic inspiration from TikTok. The other day, I even saw a cheese brand turn a popular TikTok recipe into a video pin for Pinterest! In this episode, I chat about my observations on TikTok content carrying over to other platforms, and how you can get content inspiration for your business!

    37. Encouragement for Believing in What's Possible as a Business Owner

    In this short and sweet solo episode, I'm sharing candidly about how embracing a mindset of choosing to believe in what's possible can help us reach our goals. Recently, I hit a big revenue goal in my business - despite not having the "perfect scenario" of everything that I thought I would need in place to achieve it. Let's chat about learning to let go of the perfectionism, self-doubt, and other mindset blocks that can so often hold us back!

    36. Scaling an Agency Model as a Service Provider with Tasha Booth

    Running a business as a solopreneur can be so exciting and fulfilling. But it does make it harder to experience time-freedom, since the business is depending on us to run and generate revenue. That's why Tasha Booth teaches service providers how to scale to an agency model. In this fun episode of the podcast, Tasha and I chat about what it's like to shift into a CEO role and start building an agency! Get ready for some mindset shifts and tactical steps that you can apply in your business!



    Meet the Guest: Tasha Booth

    Tasha began her journey in the online business space five years ago as a virtual assistant when she decided she was tired of living an ‘ordinary’ life on someone else’s terms. As her business grew, so did her commitment to helping others figure out how to make the life they craved reality.

    Now, whether she’s leading her team of 20+ to support established coaches and course creators as the Founder and CEO of The Launch Guild agency, coaching virtual support professionals as they start and scale their own business, or hosting the ‘How She Did That’ podcast for VAs, OBMs, and project managers, Tasha is always helping other entrepreneurs live more fully in their zone of genius.
