Being a special needs mom means I have to be very
Now I could try and cram everything into these few hours but would that really be efficient? Probably not.ย ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธInstead I have a layed out plan of what I am going to do each day, especially days that he is at school.ย ๐Ÿ“‹

Trying to cram everything into a few hours is insane, so instead I have planned and mapped out what it is I need to do that I struggle getting when my son is here.

๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ผThis Day 1 of Boss mom tip series!

When life gets crazy busy you tend to push aside those big projects or those business building things that need your entire focus.

When you have those quiet slots of time this is the time when you need to do those things that keep getting pushed aside. Decide what is most important, don’t try and squeeze all of them in, but choose what is most important that needs to be done . Then if you still have time when finished you can move on to the next. Remember balance is Golden and during some months and neither your family nor your business should suffer.

Are you a Mompreneur? How do you utilize your quiet time!

For a brief moment yesterday I had considered going back into the corporate world.ย  It was a very brief moment!ย 

For a brief moment yesterday I had considered going back into the corporate world.ย ๐Ÿ˜ฑ
It was a very brief moment!ย โ˜๏ธ
Something was dangled in front of me and for a moment my mind wandered.
But then…..
.
.
.
๐Ÿ—ฏ๏ธI asked myself was I willing to give up my time freedom?
๐Ÿ’ธWas I willing to fork over a lot of money for help with my son?
โ˜น๏ธWas I willing to give up doing what I love to do?
๐Ÿ™„Was I willing to line the pockets of someone else instead of me?

๐Ÿ™ŒAt the age of 53 I wish I understood what all this represented years ago!

๐Ÿ˜ฎMaybe I wouldn’t have spent 8 years driving 60 miles a day, paying over $100 a week for day care, just to break even every month after bills.

๐Ÿ˜ทMaybe I wouldn’t have been so stressed out to have made myself physically sick and become obese!

๐Ÿ˜ญMaybe I would have been able to be there more for my kids when they needed me!

๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸณMaybe I wouldn’t have spent many years waiting tables and working double shifts just to make ends meet while at the same time missing out on some precious mommy moments.

๐Ÿ‘€Looking back though I can say I am grateful for the opportunities! I grew as an individual with each experience, and discovered some new passions!
I was able to help a lot of people something I am passionate about doing!

๐Ÿค”However, I honestly don’t know how I did it. For 8 years, The 60 miles a day commute alone sucked! I was in my car more hours in a day than I was at home!

โœจNow my days are not dictated by a time clock or supervisor! They are
– On My terms
– I drive when I want to
– I have time now to take care of me
– I am healthier
– I am still helping others
– I am always available for my kids now
– I no longer break even in the bank every monthโฌ†๏ธ
– I get to enjoy being me

No I am not retired!
๐Ÿ’ƒI chose to live a life that that I design!!

Stop Being Boring and Create Curiosity!!!ย 

Yes, I said!!!
Every day content, the same old thing day in and day out is boring!! Create a sense of mystery or curiosity with your viewers! Add some excitement, and a sense of urgency and Viola!
IF you can do that YOU have mastered Curiosityย  Marketing!!
You will be the talk on the net!!!ย  People will be messaging you asking you
” What do you do? What is that you have? Tell me more about your product ? ”ย 

Many marketers even the seasoned ones still make mistakes! One of the biggest ones ( Ya I am guilty as well) is…

They are constantly sharing their company’s name, showing images of products etc.ย  ย Don’t be that person!!
This is not a late night infomercial!!ย  Besides once they know it, all they have to do is google it; and you never know someone else might get the sale!

So let’s think about this!! How do we do this!!!

One of my mentors explained it as a Movie Preview!ย  Little snippets of the goodness just to get them thinking!!

Here is how it works. Think of the preview of a movie you like. What are the producers giving you in those few minutes, and what are they keeping a secret? They give you bits of information in order to pique your curiosity, and excite you to go see the movie. But they keep the ending to themselves.

Think of your social media marketing strategy as a movie franchise. If you tell your prospects what product youโ€™re using or what company youโ€™re with, youโ€™re giving up the end of the movie. And that just not clever marketing!

So the next time you are thinking about sharing something about your product or company, keep this in mind!!ย 

5 Best Business Curiosity Posts for Facebook

Being strategic with your content is not something that is optional!! It is something that every online marketer needs to do!!
Type with Purpose!!ย 

It doesn’t matter what you are sharing, a quote, a photo of your mom, your kids messes – there should always be a purpose behind why you are sharing it!!

Your creativity will start pouring in when you start forming this as a habit!!!ย  Get out a note pad and start a running list of why, why do they need to hear what you are going to write!!

1. Written Content!!ย 

So how do we do this!! Oh let me count the ways!!!
Do you know what is the biggest thing that draws people’s attention and gets their curiosity in an uproar??? Lack of INFORMATION!!ย  ย YES!!!

You mindset should be this:ย if people want to know what your product or business is, they need to talk to you!

For example, you can make a post about taking a family vacation, or being home with the kids and without sounding to snooty show gratitude of how thankful you are that you have the opportunityย  to be home with your kids, or take that vacation!! If it is the product then talk about why it is so important to you!! How does it make you feel? How has it changed your life?? All without saying what it is!!

More Ideas:

  • Photo (photos) from your company event without logos and branding in the background

  • You getting recognized

  • Shoutoutsย  of your teammates or customers

  • Picture of you with leaders in your company

2: Story Tellingย 

Who does’t love a good story!! You will find plenty of them on Social Media that is for sure!!
But Learning how to tell storiesย  to grow your business is a bit different, and it is a learning process!! Practice takes time!!ย  People love to hear about other peoples success!!ย  ย It doesn’t have to be super personal, or some life altering story, but enough to start building relationships to get me to know, like and Trust you!!!

Example, sharing about you hobbies and how you got started with them! Story about how you came to your business!! Stories from a vacation!! I just recently shared one about a skiing accident that I was in, how I felt like I was given a second chance in life!!

Share customer stories of how they are loving the products and why!!!

3: Educateย 

Social Learning marketing is the hottest thing right now! If you bring genuine and authentic value to your audience!!ย  They will begin to trust you and your knowledge and that is exactly what you want!!

You can make a video where you share some of your best tips! Cook something live!!! Share an amazing healthy recipe!!ย  When sharing keep it as generic as possible till the end and then share about what you have done or tired, or use and THEN use a call to action!!

If you want more information shoot me a private message!!

4: Once a Week let your products shine!!ย 

Only Once a Week!! Remember what I said above! You are not a late night informercial!ย  Show up andย  amazing your followers with a direct promotion of your product or business.

Remember:ย  Don’t disclose the name or your product or the company!!ย  I was once explained it like this!! Every company especially if they have been around for a long time, will have some sour pout post a negative review!! Can’t please everyone right??
Well unfortunately these always show up at the top of Brother Googles searches everytime!! So if they know what it is then can very well just go google it!! You don’t want them doing that!!

Once you get them in a private conversation then ya, lay out for them! Tell them the company or products and share all that amazing stuff you have to offer!!

Remember if you are with an MLM, and they know which one, they very well could google someone else in the business and you could be loosing out on a potential team member and customer!!

Here is a great example!! I was watching a live video the other day of an un-boxing a friend was doing!! She never shared what the name of the company was, or exactly what the product was just what it does!! She got my curiosity building so I reached out to her! Come to find out it is the same stuff that another friend is selling and I have never bought from her, I did by from the live video I watched! She made it look amazing!!!!

A great example of a post that a lot of people in our team do is: a picture of the product (not disclosing the name) and a catchy caption like “ Who needs coffee when you have this amazing Shake” or ” Swim Suit Season bring it on! Bye Bye Belly Fat”ย 

Such posts are so simple but they work incredibly well! Inspire people! Once you do, everything else becomes so much easier!

If you donโ€™t see instant results, the solution is clear: consistency!ย Nothing great is going to happen for you just within a couple of minutes. Success takes a hot second to create!

How often do you take breaks? No a real break???

๐Ÿค”

What if I told you that taking a break, a real break, where you don’t think about your business, whether it be for an afternoon, a few days, or even longer could be the best thing for your business and your health, would you consider it?ย ๐Ÿ™„

Taking a break, a real break with no phones, emails or laptop allows space for the right brain to emerge. This is the part of you where those amazing ideas come from!ย ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
The part where all those creative juices starts flowing!ย ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป
It like a power charger for your brain!!

I came across this great article on HBR that points to a study that shows overworking yourself leads to several health issues including lack of sleep, impaired memory, and even health issues like heart disease.ย ๐Ÿ‘Œ
https://hbr.org/2015/08/the-research-is-clear-long-hours-backfire-for-people-and-for-companies!ย ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

You begin to lose focus, interpersonal skills, and begin making those poor choices that sometimes could lead to more stress and sleepless nights! It becomes a vicious cycle.โญ•

โžกHere are three MORE reasons to give yourself a REAL break!

โ‡ย I will say it again! Taking care of yourself is the most important part of taking care of your business:
If you are not healthy your business is not healthy! You have to let yourself relax once in awhile!
Eat right, exercise, and yes drink that water!!
๐Ÿ‘‰ย Not sure where to begin let’s chat and I will share what I am doing.ย ๐Ÿ˜š

โ‡Get Away!
Getting away allows you to clear your mind and gain some new perspectives.
Meeting new people, experiencing new things, and just getting some zen time to think will give you some much-needed distance from your business

โ‡Most important is spend quality time with your friends and family:

๐Ÿ‘‰This is why we loveย ๐Ÿ’“ย our camping adventures!
It gives everything we need to recharge those depleted cells!!

You have heard it before that spending time away with your family is important to being successful but how often do you really do it?๐Ÿ™„

I know you have a good reason not to right?
Trust me I have heard it all!ย ๐Ÿ™ƒ
๐Ÿ”นYou are just so busy!
๐Ÿ”นYou can relax when you hit your goals!!
๐Ÿ”นYou can’t miss those important deadlines!
๐Ÿ”นYou’re afraid you will lose that momentum!

Listen, it will all be there when your recharged!! You work hard and you deserve some time to sit back, relax and enjoy the people around you who are what make it A LIFE WORTH LIVING.๐Ÿ‘ˆ

ย So…..

What do all these have in common?๐Ÿค”
Exhaustion, lack of energy, not enough time with friends and family, disillusionment and lower motivation !ย ๐Ÿ˜ด๐Ÿ˜•
