One word... HARO!
HARO, or Help a Reporter Out, is one of the easiest and least well-known tools to get FREE BRAND EXPOSURE, gain external links, and boost your SEO.
HARO is a tool that connects news sources with journalists. And guess what? 👉As a business owner, you’re a news source!
I've been using this for years and have gained A TON of exposure (and web traffic!) from this tactic.
Here are just a few tips I have to making sure you utilize this platform successfully and FULL LIST FOUND ON LINK IN BIO!!

2. Make your response UNIQUE! These reporters get a ton of responses so you need to make sure you stand out.

Did you know you actually do develop a dependence on caffeine? It truly is an addiction. When you get a headache in the morning when you don’t have your coffee- that’s caffeine withdrawal. No shame! 🤷🏼♀️ Coffee also has some great benefits!
I just recommend avoiding energy drinks- they actually do cause your heart rate to speed up and can even cause your heart RHYTHM to mess up. I’ve seen 17 year old boys with chest pain and SVTs, an abnormal heart rhythm. He was drinking energy drinks daily! Coffee in general does not come close to the mg of caffeine that’s in energy drinks, so it tends to be safer. .
Head to my blog post to learn more! The link is in my bio! Coffee or Tea?
Kinda sounds like Anne was taken by a ghost.. oooooOooOooOoOoo 👻

Don’t let your ego make decisions for you. Here’s the truth: I wanted to quit my job and be working 100% online by July 1st.
That didn’t happen and I was so disappointed in myself for a while. I felt like a failure + that I hadn’t been working hard enough. “If I had put in more time and effort, I’d have complete time and location freedom right now”.
If I had let my ego take over and quit my serving job on July 1, I would either be drowning in stress or thriving. Not a risk I was willing to take. If there’s one thing I’ve learnt, it’s don’t be greedy. It’s more than okay to play it safe and plan our your next move accordingly.
Overnight success is extremely rare in most 9-5 jobs, it can take a year to get a teeny tiny raise. So why did I expect my business to thrive within the first 3 months? Not saying it isn’t possible, because members in my online community are living proof that it IS possible.
I’m in this for the long run, not an overnight get-rich-quick scheme. In the grand scheme of life, whether it takes me 8 months or 48 months to hit my professional goals, that is NOTHING.
The difference between expectations and goals is flexibility. There is a reason when things don’t happen as you had hoped.
Work efficiently, love yourself, trust the process, enjoy the journey and don’t be ashamed when things take longer than you had hoped. You may just come to realize that sometimes Plan B or C is better than Plan A😉

4️⃣ Open text, hold down & copy the pic
5️⃣ Go back to the IG story & your copies image will automatically appear on the bottom left corner to be “pasted”
6️⃣ Move, drag, resize, & continue editing as necessary
Are these tutorials helpful? 🤷🏼♀️
If so, I’ll keep them...
If these trainings are free, imagine what goes on inside EmpowerU.... just saying! 🤣
Don’t you want to just dive right in there!? 🤩 I have never felt softer sheets in my life or had a better nights sleep than I have since these sheets. These are the Norwex microfibre linens on a queen size. Our sheets are designed differently than all the other sheets in the market in that they are covered by BackLoc. BackLoc is the propitiatory blend of silver acting as an anti bacterial agent. Your sheets self purify when you’re not in them and stay cleaner for longer.
The round fitted corners make it easy for wrapping deep pocket mattresses and the flat sheet is the perfect size for making your bed look inviting or “fancy” when you’re not in the sheets.
Norwex sheets are not only incredible but they’re ON SALE!! ❤️ not just the sheets but queen and king size pillow cases as well. You spend 3/4 of your life in bed you may as well be comfortable in your sheets 🧺
90% of Instagrammers don't grow, because they don't know that Instagram is on an interest based algorithm, which means👇⠀
it's only going to show you content that you're truly interested in or that you've engaged with in the past.⠀
That means that if you are not engaging with your audience, it's difficult to grow. ⠀
Too many want to grow their Instagram pages without doing the work.⠀
For that reason, these lazy people are trying to buy fake followers, engagement, likes and comments.⠀
Ever seen an account with 10 k followers and they have 0-10 post, their post only have 50 likes and ZERO comments? I HAVE.⠀
There are a bunch of so-called "Instagram social media agency-pages", who sell their products to help other Instagrammers grow their pages, but you can just tell that they bought their engagement.⠀
That is a comment thing among Fitness Instagram influencers. I work as a social media manager full time and know tools that can identity whether an account has fake and Real followers.
So fake fitness influencers should be aware that even Instagram has a system that removed your fake engagement and Will Ban you. .⠀
That’s why fake engagement is so wrong.⠀
If you want to grow real engagement, you have to put in the work.⠀
If you're not giving opportunities for your audience to engage with you, whether it's through DM or through comment section, then Instagram is decreasing the chances of your account showing up on the feed post og IG story feed.⠀
That is why it's so damn important that when you're on Instagram, it's not just a one way street. It should be a communication from both sides.⠀
You should engage with people and there is a chance for them to engage back with you.⠀
You're increasing the chances of IG seeing that you are an account that they like to engage with.⠀
If you're not leaving any opportunity on the table to do this and you're not engaging with your audience at all, then it's going to bite your ass in terms of gaining visibility for your page.⠀
What is your key take away from this post? Comment below 👇 and maybe I will post another great Instagram secret
Would you drive your car without auto insurance? 🧐 ⠀
Ummmm no. Probably not. Why?? Because it’s illegal, and you leave yourself exposed to a fine and possibly more trouble if you get caught..right? PASS. #nothanks ⠀
Running your online business without the right legal docs on your website between you and your audience is the SAME thing. ⠀
2. Website disclaimer: this is the document that reminds people all the content on your website is just general information that may or may not be right for them, individually. It reminds them to consult a doctor, accountant, lawyer, therapist, or other relevant professional before implementing any info they find on your site. ⠀
3. Website terms & conditions: this is where you lay out all the ground rules for what people can/cannot do on your site and with your content. THIS is where you will protect your IP, control how disputes are resolved, and include all relevant terms for how people can use your site. ⠀
Don’t skip this step!!! It’s a HUGELY important way to protect your business and yourself, and show the world you are a legitimate business that follows applicable business laws and regulations. 😘😘
GPA doesn’t matter. Believe me, I had the highest CGPA in my batch. 💯
❌No, this doesn’t mean that you should stop aiming for it.
❌No, this doesn’t mean that those who have high GPAs are not smart enough.
The reason I am saying this is that those who ONLY work for GPAs, will ONLY get that!
⌚Quick punch - My GPA helped me to be a 9-5 SLAVE.
IF you want to start your own business, your university is your BIGGEST OPPORTUNITY.
🙆👉Learn soft skills (it will help you to SELL)
🙆👉Make contacts (They will be your first CLIENTs)
🙆👉Engage in PART TIME or FREELANCE work (My BIGGEST secret!)
(for graduates) If in the 4 years of university you have actually THOUGHT of doing business AND STARTED it someway or the other, let me ask you:
A Lead Magnet is anything of value that you can offer to potential clients in exchange for their contact information - usually an email address.
The most common Lead Magnet that you’ve probably seen is a free guide or report that’s delivered in PDF format. However, there are plenty of other Lead Magnets you can offer.
In this week's episode of the Girl Means Business podcast, I am breaking down all the step you need in order to create your first Lead Magnet, and how to start collecting emails right away.

Never be afraid to try something new, because life gets boring when you stay within the limits of what you already know. ⠀
Everyday I try to push myself out of my comfort zone. Today, its Pink Hair!! No but seriously, I’m always in my own way. Who else can relate? It’s tough to push through the fear of failure and embrace all of your flaws! I was fearful joining a network marketing company, 3 years ago. Hey, who am I kidding.. I can’t sell... but I pushed myself to do it and the best changes in life started happening!! Most recently I’ve been asked to share my story on an opportunity call. And of course as usual ... I’m terrified! But guess what? I’m doing it! ⠀
If I’ve learned anything on my journey its that its all about mindset! Did you ever notice that Fear and Excitement feel the same? So the next time you’re fearful to try something new, tell yourself I’m Excited to do this! ⠀
I’m EXCITED to speak on this call! If you’re interested in checking out my story, send me a DM and I’ll personally invite you on the call and you can watch me Fail Forward!!

What does a BOSS look like in 2019?
Well, yesterday she wore a pink robe and a sea foam face mask while laying in bed answering emails because her sinuses felt like that were going to explode.
And, the day before that, she took a (very productive) client call while both of her kids watched a movie and ate lunch in the same room.
And, the day before that spent her kids nap time putting together a strategy for a new client, launching 3 ad sets and putting together a social schedule for a live broadcast happening 8.5 hours ahead.
And today, will get a new calendar prepared, log 3 engagement hours and onboard a new client, dropping her daughter off at pre-school, picking her up and doing the night time routine while her SO works and afternoon-evening shift.
See, I wanted to find or take a great picture of me popping some champagne in a full face and hair done, but honestly this is the reality.
I know you are working a similar schedule. Whether it be kids or commitments, running your business, managing your life and being a BOSS in the process, dang sis you are doing the damn thing!
Happy #NationalBossesDay to all you small biz warriors, solopreneurs, side hustlers, mompreneurs, BOSSES making it happen today and everyday!
If you are not working towards your goals right now, I'll see you in a year. We'll see how far we've gotten. Don't get left behind just because you don't feel like it.
You got goals, right?
Then, shut up, show up and do the WORK! #Allin
We’re only 4 days away from Taboo Talk #2 : The Mental Health Edition. What is mental health? So many questions around what is considered a mental illness. According to MentalHealth.gov, “mental health includes emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices”. We should not judge others - we all wear masks but rarely do we reveal what’s going on behind the mask. Be kind and seek to understand first 😊

And... Just like the sun you will rise up again tomorrow.
Is what you are doing make you feel
e x p a n s i v e or…
is it making you feel like you are contracting?
I’ve been thinking a lot about this, ☝🏽this month.
Think about this when it comes to your 🎃 job
🎃& things you do on a daily basis
I think way too many people feel like they are contracting. Personally, I don’t think contraction feels good. Right??
When you start being intentional about surrounding yourself with people that make you feel e x p a n s i v e & you do more things that e x p a n d you, you will start to see serious growth & positive changes in your life.
I know I did.
REPLACE everything that contracts you.
Money shouldn’t change who you are.
Money is just a tool.
Get rid of your fear of money, and guilt of money, and live with the abundance mindset instead of the scarcity mindset.
Have no guilt in earning money.
Feel no guilt spending money.
After all, you’ve already allocated your fair share to savings and investments, right?

WHY YOUR LAUNCH DIDN’T SELL OUT🤷 (SAVE THIS)
Launching can be super scary: you’re putting yourself out there and then doubt creeps in…
🚫 What if nobody responds?
🚫 What if I’m not good enough?
🚫 What if I don’t get any clients?
These 3 things will change the game for you:
1️⃣ You have to LOVE your offer
Because, babe, is shines through. Your clients needs to be confident that you can help them before they will invest. So what are they going to think if YOU aren’t even obsessed with it? Sell with confidence and love, be 100% certain that your offer will help someone, that it’s jam-packed with value, it will change their business, make them happy because they reached their goal!♥️
2️⃣ Your content has to be in sync
Talk about your experience, talk about your money story and talk about things that you teach or provide in your offer. That way people know what to expect, whet they’re signing up for and you give them a taste of what it’s like to be your client!🥂
3️⃣ You’re talking about the facts
Yes, your offer is X amount of weeks, you will teach or provide Y, your client gets X and Y. But how is your client going to FEEL after they have worked with you? What’s going to change for them when they sign up? Talk transformation, talk emotion and paint the beautiful picture of what it’s like after you helped them!😍
Have you ever launched? If yes, what did you learn?😍👇
Ready to have a strategy that works for your business?🎉
Ready to ditch that stress and finally serve more clients and make more money?💰
🚨 I only have 1 spot left for my 8 week 1:1 program!
🚨 APPLICATIONS CLOSE TOMORROW
🚨 And yes, they close for the rest of 2019!
🚨 Prices are going up next round!
🚨 THIS. IS. YOUR. CHANCE.

From the outside, I think someone would look at my life and think GEEZ, she is overworked, tired, and must be so miserable. While the truth is - sure I’m tired and learning how to be a mom of 2. But I’m literally living my dream every day. ⠀
When I was an associate in a law firm, and dreamed up this idea to have my own firm and business that would allow me to stay home with my babies while still flexing the “work” muscle is DESPERATELY need to use in order to stay sane, this is how I dreamed it could be. My crazy idea (that my husband completely supported) actually freaking worked. And that’s something to celebrate. ⠀
I work when I want, I only have customers and clients I love, I don’t bill hourly, and I get to associate with some AMAZING entrepreneurs who are literally changing the world. Plus, I spend days at Disneyland or the waterpark anytime I want, and I’m pretty sure a lot of people think I’m a stay at home mom 😊. ⠀
Don’t let setbacks, fear, or uncertainty scare you away from your dream. It CAN totally happen. And I can’t wait to hear about it when it does. ❤️
