Things I wish someone had told me when I first started my entrepreneur journey 4 years ago.
1. Just because you have a website doesn’t mean the phone will ring.
2. Pick up the phone and make lots of calls.
3. Create quality content and add value.
4. Give, give, and give before asking.
5. Don't hide behind your business brand, but build a personal brand too.
6. Don’t spam people with long emails and LI messages.
7. Following up is where most of the deals happen.
8.Lead magnets such as offering free eBooks, PDF downloads or services are the way to go.
9. Relationships are your net worth. Spend 70% of your time building them. Even on LinkedIn.
10. Joint ventures and collaborations. Teaming up with people gives your brand more power. It's also less lonely.
11.Don’t ever click boost on a Facebook post, it’s all about the Facebook pixels and ads manager.
12. Facebook ads are the bomb. So many people check their Facebook as soon as they wake up, go to the toilet and even as they are walking.
13.Marketing funnels, they are a thing which I’m figuring out.
14. Free live presentations are also a thing. Still figuring them out too.
I still have no idea what I'm doing. Each day is a challenging and rewarding experience. Tears and laughter.
What lessons learnt would you like to share?

I’ve spent quite a bit of time in the last couple of weeks reflecting on where I am right now, how I got here, and where I see myself going forward. .
In the last 90 days, I’ve been able to pay off over $8,000 in student loans, purchased new furniture, moved into my own place and gotten a second promotion at work. .
I’m 100% sure that if things hadn’t happened the way they did, NONE of that would have been possible. .
There’s no way I would’ve been able to work 75-80 hour weeks in fourth quarter, which is how I made enough to pay for everything... And I’m confident that my dedication to work (and the networking I was able to do by covering for so many supervisors) is the only reason I was selected for my new position. .
As a bonus, earlier this week I was appointed to a special team that helps provide feedback to the business (which means paid time off to travel to meetings). Things are definitely looking up for my career here. .
Sometimes the silver lining is hard to see, but if you’re patient and just keep putting one foot in front of the other, you’ll find it. .
Austin started school last week...... and without him everything has been a little nuts 🙃I’m on the go non stop from the moment I wake up to the second I go to bed. You really have to learn how to Prioritize. You have to wake up, get ready, kids ready, work, pick kids up, dinner, wash, pjs, lay clothes out of the next day, read, entertain.... then finally bed 😐😐😐... guess all I can say is welcome to motherhood! 😆😆😆 (this is where I start losing my mind 🤪)
So my day began with sleeping in longer than I should have and rushing to work but still made it on time, even with the snow 👍
Then the day was full of cancels but still had the last patient coming in, making the day drag on and on and on. I was in no mood to go to the gym today. When I got home I checked my TimeHop and noticed a run I did 1 year ago today. I was so discouraged because there was no way I was in the same shape to run for 70 minutes this year.
SO. I loooove setting challenges for myself. I gave it a shot, got changed and headed to the gym with the intentions to run the entire time and stick to my plan.
AND I did just that 👏👏 it was definitely not easy, and the first 30 minutes felt like FOREVER. But I did not stop and I finished doing actually better than last year!!! Point is, never get to your own head, keep striving, get up, and reach those goals you set! Anything is possible. And you never know if you’ll outdo yourself too! Such a good feeling 😊 .
ALSO. I got an email today regarding the half marathon I have scheduled in April. Turns out they want to make 2 crazy events at a huge university into 1 out of control day... GOOD CALL 😤🙄 ITS FINE. EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON. and now I have an extra week to prepare. And can celebrate my birthday only a week late and not 2 weeks late when it is irrelevant by then so yay 😄🙌 .
I don't always make the right choices but I love wisdom and learning from people and life. There's so much to learn and see in this world. Enjoy life because everything is changing and life won't stop for you to get it together. Learn from your mistakes quickly and move on because you want to live a fulfilling life without regrets. Keep moving forward, don't stop
So awhile back I posted a few pics of a collab we had coming and I know its been a min since @darealconceptz dropped some flavor so stay tuned for this bad boy coming out very soon (few days) 🙏🏾💪🏾🔥 @cassidy_larsiny@arnstar
It's not my original quote, I heard it somewhere, from someone, and have been saying it ever since.
Stop talking about what you really want to do. Because if you really wanted to do it, you'd already be doing it! Starting it. Trying it. Learning it.
It's ok to like having conversation. Make it honest. Genuine. Authentic. Make it 💯especially with yourself.
I made toddler steps tonight. I'm proud of my own dang self. #shedidthat
USA Under 16 OL. A great group of Hogs!! Ready to take on UNAL-Mexico. Thanks to the coaches for making this team what it is.#Teamusa#Keepgrinding#EarnYourStars
My biggest goal tonight was climbing 50 flights of stairs and I did it. Now I wanna get the time down! Some light treadmill and other cardio. Gonna hit some weights this weekend. Taking it slow on the weights, i've learned to many times by going hard on the first couple of days! But my cardio is coming along nicely and i've lost a couple of pounds. #keepgrinding#mansports@alexandermccray@mansports#manpersonalbest
