Shiny object syndrome can be so real. I remember when I first started in the online business world and I signed up for EVERYTHING that was free that I thought could move my business forward. People seem to be offering the solution to every problem I was having with getting started and growing my business but when it came down to it most of these freebies were total flops that not only did nothing to help grow my business but also ended up filling up and cluttering my inbox. There were a few gems in there of course but it was only when I got serious about what I needed that I was able to push past the other shiny objects to get the one that mattered.Read More
Being an introvert and trying to promote yourself in the online space can be a challenge. It really requires us to push past our comfort zone and put ourselves out in front of people we don’t know. It doesn’t matter what your business/blog/etc. is, when you’re first getting started fear can play a huge part in how much we put ourselves out there.Read More
Are you really working to attract your ideal client?
I know when I first started my business I was just speaking broad and to everyone. I thought that I wanted every single dang person I could get into my customer journey with me. Of course I found out quickly I was wrong as the people I was attracting were the farthest thing away from the type of people I wanted to work with or who really wanted to work with me.Read More

It’s no secret that pretty much everyone is insanely busy these days. With all the daily hustle and bustle it’s hard to find time to for new things in our life such as starting or growing a business. The thought of trying to set aside hours to build something from nothing can seem overwhelming and like it will never fit in your schedule but making time for your business can be so much easier than you think!Read More
I’ve always been one looking for ways to be more productive and increase my productivity. I can even remember times back in middle school and even elementary when my planner was my life. I was born to be type A honestly. This really means I have tried every single productivity trick, tip, hack, etc that has been created but there are few better than batching.
I think I loved batching so much because it reminds me of batch cooking in the kitchen. The kitchen is really my homeland if I’m being completelyRead More
Do you have systems set up in your business, blog, and/or life?
If your answer was no you could be creating a lot of extra work for yourself and WASTING a lot of time and even money!
Systems can create so much convenience for you and the way you do things as well as make it 10x easier to pass tasks off to a virtual assistant when you get to that level in your business.
So what really is a system and how do you create it in your business?Read More
Happy New Year everyone!
I seriously can’t believe we are already in 2019. It seems like I blinked and 2018 was over. Last year was one of many ups and downs but I wouldn’t change a thing about it because it led to massive growth in my business and big changes for my life! Now it’s time to get you on the right track as well.
Maybe 2018 wasn’t all you wanted it to be and more. Maybe you fell short on your goals. Maybe things came up that prevented you from working on the things you really wanted to. That’s ok!
I love this time of year because everyone is so filled with motivation and talking about their goals and dreams and you should be no different. We are all coming off the high of the holidays and straight into the season of bettering ourselves and you can’t help but catch that buzz that everyone has.Read More
I’m not coming into this blog post claiming that I am some huge Facebook groups expert, far from it actually. However, I’m coming up on 3 years in business as a coach and have run 2 groups(one of which I shut down) and have learned a lot about running a group during that time.
I started my first group back in March 2016 and called it Female Introvert Lifestyle Mastermind. I wanted to be this cross of a business and lifestyle coach for introvert women. Growth was sloooooooow. Once I changed the name to The Badass Business Introvert(the first edition) growth happened a little more quickly but engagement was a huge struggle. Eventually it was just me posting and NO engagement at all so I decided to start over with a better plan. The Badass Business Introvert 2.0 group was born withRead More
Back at the end of 2017 I made a really hard but much needed decision. 2018 would be the year of saying NO. Now I would never, ever describe myself as a push over or anything but I am the type of person who feels like they need to do all the things all at the same time.
At the time I was running my business, trying to launch and be consistent with a travel/foodie blog, running a nonprofit organization, an active member of a local service club plus all the normal every day things such as wife, homemaker, etc.Read More
