I debated posting this video because I made a pretty BIG + sweeping statement. I said, “Instagram may not be the platform for you if you can’t visually show what your business does.” (The video also shows my first [ever] attempt at making a video in 2008…so be prepared to cringe!)

  What do you need to do to GROW your business in 2018?  Sometimes it’s just admitting you didn’t do your best last year…then figuring out what, exactly, needs to change. Though I do my best to respond to every email I receive, it’s impossible to keep up with them in totality.  But when I […]

  You know I’m a huge fan of Instagram (it’s kind of like a summer best friend I want to go swimming with and braid wild daisies into her hair) because it’s revolutionized my business. But what I underestimated was the sheer magnitude of one-on-one connections made with Direct Messages. These connections are basically conversations […]
