For online business owners looking to learn the fast and sustainable social media strategies! I currently focus on Instagram 75% of the time but will cover other platforms as needed. I try to stay very active with my Instagram community and do frequent coaching calls with some listeners to keep my ear to the ground of what you all may need to learn. Because of this, I will sometimes stop to let everyone know general business information that I think is important to the current business landscape. I have a 7.5 year career in direct sales behind me that I utilize in combination with my knowledge of social media algorithms to bring you a heap of unique social media growth and sales strategies. I also bring on guests that have necessary skills to compete online today that I don't have in order to fill in the blanks to your online marketing education! Try subscribing for a week!
