Raise your hands 🙋🏻♀️Bostonians! No one will hold me back! Except to save me from gaining like 5 pounds from the delish donuts 🍩 from Kane’s. ▫️ But let me be real and give you a little life tip👏🏻: don’t let anyone put you down, hold you back, or tell you that your not worthy. I’ve learned to not let those worries 🤯get in my head and continue on the path that feels right, at least in that moment. ▫️ But on the flip side, I’m very open to those who I know care about 😍me. If they are telling me that something isn’t right, or good for my health or wellbeing, I’ll consider their opinion. Sometimes we run ourselves 🥵ragged through all the challenges not even realizing it may not be serving us well. Perhaps your health is suffering, or relationships are strained. 😥These are the times I welcome the push back and have learned to recognize them when they are there...like holding me back from that 4th Kane’s donut,Because all I’d get is a sugar headache and be uncomfortably full 🤣
Emma Scott / DON’T WE ALL DESERVE SOME LUXURY 🌈 ⠀ Great way to build a brand is to build it around a product or service that you want, that you just can’t find. ⭐️ ⠀ Genevieve and Alan, the team behind Bed Threads did just that. ⠀ When they moved into a new apartment back in 2014, they wanted to sleep in pure, 100% linen bedding that came complete with all of the trimmings. 🛏 ⠀ ➡️ It had to be high-quality, simple to wash, easy on the environment, affordable and beautiful. They scanned far and wide and researched online and in stores—but nothing they found ticked all their boxes. Either they were forced to go over budget, up sold into a bunch of extras they didn’t need or generally underwhelmed with the quality of what they could find. ⠀ ➡️ So they created their own beautiful flax linen sheets, at an affordable price point. And their brand is growing so rapidly. ⠀ ➡️ Just this week three people mentioned their sheets to me. ⠀ A brand to watch guys. 👀 @bed.threads ⠀ 💛💛💛 #thatbrandinggirl#rockstarbrands#ecoliving#brandpreneur
THE POWER OF THE FIRST: I was passing by the road today when I saw one of these. Then it just hit me again how good it is to be first to start some things. Being the first gives a power that is always difficult to overthrow. It makes you the trusted one, the one in charge. Some examples are brands like Indomie (now an alternative name for noodles), Dangote (just about the only one we think of when "cement" is mentioned) , and many more. But there are some "First" brands which are not currently leading the market. One is Mc Clean (another name for tootpaste in Nigeria), De Rica (a tomato paste brand which was so popular that it became a unit of measurement in most part of Nigeria). Have you ever wondered what happened along the way? And I honestly have no facts as to why they are not leading the market currently. But I really believe they still can with the right brand strategy. But here's my point, what happens to the rest of us who are not "First Brands"? How can we get to be a voice in our industry? - Good knowledge of branding - The right entry strategy (Case Study, Opay) On the 14th of September, I'll be having a Disruptive Branding Class made for business owners, professionals, and individuals. It's going to be a moment. Link in bio for more.
You will NEVER attract high-paying clients if you do this: - Wanna know why everyone you ever seem to attract are people who either “can’t afford” to work with you, or who can only afford a couple dollars here and there? - Because you haven’t proclaimed yourself a high-level mentor (or whatever else it is that you do, if you’re not a mentor). You haven’t made it CLEAR that this is who you are. 👑 I’m not saying you need to verbally announce this to the world (although I do recommend it!), but moreso, it’s about the energy you’re putting out each day. Here’s a lil’ exercise for you: — Think about the YOU that is charging ______ (whatever you consider a “high-paying” amount) to hire/work with you.. — What kind of content is she creating? — What kind of offers she promoting? HOW is she promoting them? — What is she unavailable for? WHO is she unavailable for? — What kind of clients is she attracting? — How are those clients showing up? How are they buying? What kind of language are they using? What kind of actions are they taking? So there are 2 things you need to do here: - 1. Decide on what “high-paying” means to you, and commit to it. 2. Decide on what kind of clients you’re available to work with, and what kind you’re not. And then it’s just a matter of showing up as this high-level ____ (mentor, strategist, designer, etc.) and calling in those soulmate clients. Got it? Cool. 😊
Too much effort to build my social media, takes too much time to research and start building. Why can't I just post what I like? If you have that thought, if you don't care about what you own, how can you ever achieve what you want?
