Website Facebook Twitter Instagram Podcast Click Here to Tweet to Nadine & Nicole Nadine Artemis’ of Living Libations Entrepreneurial Journey Through Setbacks and Challenges From the time she was a teen Nadine Artemis of Living Libations has known the typical 9-5 was not for her. She had a love of handmade beauty products, being given her mother and sister’s left over bath products to experiment with, and began mixing up her own concoctions to give to friends in high school and college. It was only a matter of time before it became a fully fledged business. Living Libations has now been in operation for many years, and Nadine the author of several books including Renegade Beauty and Holistic Dental Care. Here she shares her inspiring entrepreneurial journey through triumphs, setbacks and devastating losses, as well as tips and strategies for the budding entrepreneur.   The road to entrepreneurship When did you know you wanted to turn this into a business? When I was 18 years old, through understanding what I was eating and what I didn't want to eat and reading labels at the supermarket, quickly led to me going ‘Oh my god, and all my body care is just total BS.’ And I did a science fair project with essential oils. Then I get to university and I discovered this whole thing kind of about food and body care. So from that moment forward, I never ate processed food again. I always eat organic and I was always making my own skincare. Then I started making it for friends and family and also at the same time I was sourcing the world for the purest ingredients. From reading books from the 1800s and modern books, and reading about materials like ancient Egyptian recipes, I was like, ‘I need these things.’ Just really recently in the last hundred years or since the 19th century, synthetics didn't even exist, and before that what we applied to our body was pressed from petals and sluice from SAP and had such a life quality to it. And so that's what I was really interested in. When I understood the BS in beauty care, that's when my relationship to beauty and health got really renegade, and I've started to care for myself in a whole other way. So I'd make all these formulas and then friends and family loved it all. I knew when I was going to graduate that I was going to do something else, I was going to start a store because I felt like there was no place that had that purity. I was making blends and concoctions and people were buying it. It was really fun and it grew and grew, so I had that going for me while I was in university. I made my own little pamphlets and I called it Artemis Essentials.   I had my lip balms I would put in little recycled film canisters of all kinds. People really wanted my stuff . . . so yeah, there was that moment I knew. Then I took an aromatherapy course just to kind of ground it all in. I can't remember the exact moment a store thought came in, but I was like, I'm going to do a store. Entrepreneur challenges  What challenges have you faced as an entrepreneur?  In my last year [of university] I was getting a lot of the stuff ready for when I was free from school to then open the store. I got a student loan, I had to go the bank, I made a business plan. I w

Read on for 20 Instagram secrets to uplevel your Instagram profile in minutes.   How to do an Instagram live the right way  Instagram live has a limited life span  When it comes to Instagram Live, it’s important to remember it's a live broadcast. Just like you would do Facebook Live or Periscope, or whatever it is. Thankfully, Instagram makes the process super simple: press one button and you’re live. While the video is there in your Instagram profile, you can either share it or not. If you share it after the broadcast, it's still only “lives” for 24 hours, and then it's gone. It's not like a Facebook live that stays on your page forever. Instagram Live is very short form content in terms of its longevity. You can do up to one hour of live recording and then it will literally chop you off. It will end your broadcast after about 59 minutes and 59 seconds. A little timer starts flashing and you have 30 seconds left. It is one of those things where you have a limited capacity with it. So you do want to make sure you save it immediately after broadcast to your camera roll. How to save your Instagram live  You can repurpose Instagram lives to YouTube or Facebook or your blog post or whatever you want. You’ll have the MP4 version available after recording but you have to immediately, as soon as you end the broadcast, save it. To do this, there's a SAVE button in little white letters in the top right corner. You literally have to click that save button right then because if you don't, you cannot save it after the fact. Also, if it’s a long video, make sure you have enough space on your phone to download it. When you see a pop-up that says ‘Video Saved’ you know it’s been added to your camera roll. From there you can save it to your Google Drive or Dropbox. Additionally, if you had a guest on your live you cannot save the video. This may be a privacy or security concern if they haven't given permission to come on. They don't want you saving the video and repurposing it because of the type of outlet that it is with a 24 hour product. In that case, you’ll h

    Learn the 3 Things That Make a Killer Public Talk with Tricia Brouk of The Big Talk Podcast

    Learn the 3 Things That Make a Killer Public Talk with Tricia Brouk of The Big Talk Podcast

    Tricia Brouk is an award winning director. She is also writes and choreographs for theater, film and television. In addition to her work in the entertainment industry, she applies her expertise to the art of public speaking. She’s the executive producer of Speakers Who dare, a TEDx producer. She choreographed Black Box on ABC, The Affair on Showtime, Rescue Me on Fox, and John Turturro’s Romance and Cigarettes, where she was awarded a Golden Thumb Award from Roger Ebert. Her series Sublets, won Best Comedy at the Vancouver Web-Festival. She curates and hosts the Speaker Salon in NYC,  The Big Talk a podcast on iTunes and directs and produces The Big Talk Over Dinner a new tv series. Website Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Instagram Podcast Click Here to Tweet to Tricia & Nicole EFFECTIVE PUBLIC SPEAKING TIPS WITH TRICIA BROUK OF THE BIG TALK Only 3 years ago, Tricia Brouk, public speaking coach and host of The Big Talk podcast, was minding her own business in the film, television and theatre industry with no intention of becoming a speech coach. When a dear friend booked a TEDx talk and asked Tricia to direct her, the seed was planted.  Within just 6 months Tricia had a website up and The Big Talk was live in NYC. Her work now centers around helping people “talk” and not only talk, but give BIG talks, the important ones, whether it's a TEDx, or a keynote or a toast, or communicating in front of people that they respect. Despite having zero online presence, Tricia began surrounding herself with people who understood the online world, one of whom was networking a specialist Jamie Broderick who helped Tricia create an online media presence and introduce her to key people who might need speaking directors. The rest, as they say, is history.   Here Tricia shares her process for delivering a successful “Big Talk” so you can spread your message on a global scale. WHAT ARE THE TECHNIQUES OF EFFECTIVE PUBLIC SPEAKING? Knowing the Difference Between a TEDx Talk and a Keynote Speech  The Art of The Big Talk first breaks down the difference between a TEDx talk and a keynote speech. This is an important distinction you’ll need to understand in order to get the delivery just right. A TEDx talk is  18 minutes or less Contains your ideas (not problems or issues) Aims to give the listener a “gift” or a solution (“We can end global warming by doing this one simple thing…”) A keynote speech  45 - 60 minutes long Presents hard hitting problems or issues Contains a clear call to action or an “ask” (“Buy my book”) Tricia further explains these very different approaches by stating “If you talk about an idea and frame it as an idea, not an issue, people will respond to you more openly. An idea is a thought a concept or a notion that we have. And once we form a thought this can become an idea with massaging, tending to and allowing for growth, an issue is usually an emotional or a personal problem. And it makes you feel prickly.” Issues may make us feel like ‘What can we do about it? It's so big.’ However, if you reframe it as an idea, a short to-the-point statement of hope, it sounds doable, actionable, and people are more likely to respond. Having a “Through-Line” in Your Talk to Stay in Alignment with Your Message  The through line is the heartbeat of a talk. If you understand what your through line is, you can constantly come back to it and never get lost. A through line is short, only 15 words or less. It's the concise, articulate and singular progression of your idea, which includes all of the critical elements unique to the idea. It's simple, it's clear, and it's very succinct. Here are three examples of really strong through lines:  More choices make us less happy Vulnerability is something to be treasured, not hidden Fake it until you make it As writers and speakers with big ideas, we have so man
