I had the honor of being interviewed by The Couple-preneurs Show! In our conversation I share about how I manage a 9-5, marriage, and entrepreneurship simultaneously. Click The Couple-preneurs Show to hear how I show up for all three!
Don’t let Covid-19 slow you or your business down! For my creatives that normally sale your products at vending events, social distancing due to Coronavirus has currently shut down in-person sales. However, you can still reach your target audience other ways. One avenue is hosting a virtual pop-up shop! Let’s discuss the steps you need to take to make this happen.
- Select an online platform. When selecting a platform, especially “free” ones, research and make sure you’re not violating any platform guidelines by selling on platform.
- Create a script. In the script you need to highlight your product’s sweet spots. A sweet spot is what makes your brand unique and stand out from the rest. Be sure to share how your product solves or relieves problems for your potential customer.
- Partner with someone. If possible, collaborate with another business that serves your niche! Working with someone will broaden your audience. You both can tag team potential customers and offer bundles. Click Love Duo for example of an online collaboration.
- Set up a system. Make it easy for customers to order your products and make payments. If you’re not directing folks to an online shop for purchases, be sure to collect mailing addresses so you’ll know where to send orders.
I hope these steps are helpful and inspire you to go virtual! During this season we have to be innovative and think outside the box. Be encouraged; you can still get those coins during The Rona!

It’s a party, it’s a party, it’s a PAR-TA…
One of my annual self-care practices is creating a vision board. A vision board is basically a visual representation of your intentions. I put mine up in my home office. It’s a reminder of what I want to accomplish and helps me refocus when I get off track.
On Sunday, February 3rd I will hosting a Vision Board Party! This will be a fun filled event that I’ll be facilitating. What makes my workshops unique is that you leave with a plan of action to accomplish your goal(s). After the workshop, there’s nothing to it, but to do it. Also, I provide all the supplies to create your vision board and snacks to get your creativity flowing. All you have to bring to the party is yourself! RSVP by purchasing your ticket before Wednesday, January 30th. Invest in yourself and your vision, because YOU ARE WORTH IT!
