Sundays are for bullet journals, coffee, and candles. Jk this was about 5 minutes of my day. The rest was filled with Chinese food, work, Netflix, and a decent amount of poop jokes. But that all makes for a good Sunday.
I’m on my way home from a much needed vacation, and I’m daydreaming hard about where my business is headed. I can only offer so much at once, so I’d love to have your votes! If you had to choose between a monthly membership site, a 3 month coaching program, and a 1 or 2 day in-person workshop, which would you pick? I’d love to get your thoughts and requests in the comments 👇🏼

Does anyone else scroll through Instagram and feel like they’re the only imperfect ____________ (mother, business owner, graphic designer, blogger, photographer etc etc)? If so, you’re definitely not alone. This is why I spent months OFF of Instagram even though I knew it was vital for my business. Once I realized I could use Instagram for good instead of evil, my business became a place that I could teach, share, and connect. Instagram is now one of my favorite business tools, and I look forward to posting and sharing lives when I used to dread and avoid it. What about you? Do you have a love/hate relationship with Instagram? Or have you already tapped into it’s incredible resources? I’d love to hear about your relationship with Instagram in the comments 👇🏼👇🏼
I shared this in my stories yesterday and so many of you DMed me, so I thought I would share here. I downloaded a bunch of magazines FOR FREE in my kindle app because I’m a prime member! A few titles include Southern Living, Vanity Fair and Rolling Stone. I was browsing the kindle app on my new iPad, and I got a pop up saying I should check out the included prime magazines. When I go to download, it says “Borrow this magazine for free”. Don’t mind if I do! I typically prefer holding the real magazine in my hands, but I hate trashing a $7 magazine in the salty beach air and love that I can read what I want and not worry about ruining it. I should mention this is NOT sponsored, I’m just excited because I LOVE magazines 😬👌🏼 Did you guys know about this feature?
I’m living it up in Philly for the night at @staylokal with my fam to celebrate my course launch. While I’m trying to be present and snuggle my babes, I might also be obsessively photographing every square centimeter of this highly curated room 🤤 Guys, branding is an experience, not just a logo. What experience do you want your audience to walk away with after an interaction with your business? For me, I want my audience to feel like they’re chatting with a friend while gaining priceless business advice. What about you?
I know a lot of you have enjoyed my Cohesive iPhoneography worksheet, but I’m thinking about my next freebie. I’m thinking it should be Instagram focused, but this is where I get stuck.

I’d love to have something new for you ASAP 💋 Ps. My IG Live replay all about the Instagram Algorithm is still up. Check it out before it expires!
I finally made it back to an @inspirebusinesscommunity event last night, and it was soul quenching. I met strangers and we asked each other what our favorite part of our business was. And I shockingly said “Instagram Lives!” If you know me, you know how big of a deal this is. I’m an introvert by nature, but I also love teaching, so I’ve been working on getting out of my own way to share what I can with other people. My weekly lives have changed my business for the better, and they’re the highlight of my business each week. Today’s topic is SUPER exciting because you voted for it in my stories! I’m talking all about the Instagram Algorithm, and how to use it to your advantage. Join me live at a new time, 11 am EST // 8 am PST. Do you have future topic requests? Let me know below! 👇🏼

And the beautiful blue velvet couch is happy in its new home with @kristinstargazer 😬👌🏼 All of my upcoming Instagram lives and future webinars will take place at that pretty desk happily situated in the prettiest of light 💕 I’m a 7 on the enneagram, which means I’m always looking for the next exciting thing (which is exhausting), but this is the first time I’ve rearranged my living room since I moved in in March of 2017.
