Tiny Homes coming to Waupaca Wisconsin?

Image
Here I am minding my own business, pulling up to a park and guess what I see... A tiny home, just sitting there waiting for me to be totally jealous, because as 99% of the world knows I have been wanting one for such a long time. So when seeing this I was like YES!!!



This was not complete and I was totally in awe, but to bring an area that they can sit here in Waupaca would be awesome. So in the future it brings more options for the city to bring in more people. This is awesome. So sitting and listening to this event sparked an inner why do you let your dreams go, dreams like owning a tiny home or an rv, and giving up photography. You don't have to give up your dreams to do something else. 


How to get organized with Trello

Image
Holidays start to bring out the forgetful brain in me. I don't know where I put things how to do things or where to go with things. It's sometimes like my short term memory just disappears. I forget peoples names, I wonder where I put my socks (they are usually on my feet) chaos truly erupts.

So I found Trello. I was searching through apps on the App Store and it pop up under productivity. I said well lets give it a try. So I went for it. Found my self organizing things and playing with things at a lighting speed. Then I wanted to see if there was anything else like Trello. While there are lot's of imposters to be honest the best one I have found is Trello it's self.

This year I created a wish list for Christmas board. So far for me this has been amazing.

I show a quick little video here on how I create and move things.. there is no sound and it is quick like I said.. But I am also offering a link to the board it's self so you can use it on your own as well just c…

BAM- Marketing on Twitter (lesson 1) Connections

Image
Twitter in it's self is a hard shell to crack. Most people on this network are there to share what they do, as well as connect with other businesses. It is MOSTLY a business to business but there is a niche there because while it may be where businesses go to tweet about what they do or are doing there are people behind that. If they are anything like me they also have about two twitter accounts one for their business and one for their personal.

Getting around on twitter is simple, you just have to remember to keep up with it. Once you start on twitter you don't want to go back and be like oh sorry I haven't been on here in years. Not how to get new clients and customers to pay attention to your brand.

Twitter is about making connections, as is any social media. Twitter this becomes more valuable.

Making the first connection is tough but getting those valuable followers is always a rush for me. I enjoy thanking them for following me and I let them know that I am always ha…

10 Awesome & Creative ways to introduce yourself

Image
We have all been places where we didn't know anyone or joined a new place but didn't know what to say about certain things when joining new groups or people for a chat it gets crazy intimidating sometimes, this could even be after not seeing someone for 10 years. Here are my 10 tips to introduce yourself.

1. People like to hear their name

So many people get caught up in their own minds that we forget things, so I make it a point to say someones name 3 times in a verbal conversation and at least once in a written conversation. I do this because people like to hear their name, and it focuses people. So if you are droning on and on, people will tune you out, it happens don't take offense. Saying their name is like a snap back to your convo.  My creative way to do this is to think of a way to remember their name, and face. So I look at them and in my head ( names bob) I go Bob Bob Bob the man with the prob... he has a ______ and doesn't know what to do.. I sing this in my …

The Creepy & Crawly Social Media "Followers"

Image
Since it's the spirit of Halloween I thought I'd talk about the creepy and the crawly followers we get and remember that we need to remember to protect ourselves online. 
Social media is an awesome place to connect with friends, prospects and so much more. My self included sometimes don't think of the dangers of social media, and how to protect ourselves. 
Here are some things to think about when doing social media. 
If you are a blogger and are posting photos of your family watch out for geo tags and location tagging. It is always best to take photos and post them after you are back home this way people are not aware you are not home at that time. It's always a great idea to not post details of places where your children frequent. 
If you are doing family posts online make up a nickname for them online. This keeps from their real name being out in the public eye and with all the creepy things that could happen if you put a fake name online that your child doesn't…

Business and being your TRUE self

Image
Have you heard that not everyone is your ideal customer or client? This is true in every type of business. It doesn't matter if you sell shoes or if you rake leaves. These things are a struggle to figure out if you want to continue to work with certain folks and or businesses.

I have even struggled with being my true self in business. I was trying so hard to get any clients that I didn't care if they weren't right for me. I just wanted to work with everyone. Well this finally caught up to me. I have worked with a few different people who drained me physically and mentally.

After this I got out my notebook and wrote pros and cons of working with people / companies and if I should continue.

Being true to your self is something that is tough, but remember your type of people that will get you and understand what you are doing on and in your business are out there.

Reading a few different blogs and facebook groups has helped me realize that in order for me to even succeed I n…
