What do you need to BE in order to DO what is necessary to HAVE what you want? Let me tell you the secret!
You’ve probably heard the saying many times ‘we are human doings not human beings’. This seems more evident today in our fast paced, technology fuelled lives.
As an entrepreneur it has become the norm to be action oriented, wearing our ‘busyness’ as a badge of honour and evaluating ourselves on how much we are getting done and achieving. We are more likely to be programmed to ‘do’ rather than to ‘be’.
Ok, so we've been talking a lot about branding and design lately and there have been a few things that have come up a couple of times! So in this post, I want to straight up tell you about 5 of the biggest branding mistakes that entrepreneurs make when creating images or graphics for social media.
Design. Copy. Calls to Action. Photos. There's a lot that goes into creating an image or graphic on Social Media and these are just a few of them! In this post, I want to share with you 5 Tips for Making Your Social Media Images POP!
Making an image in Canva for social media is pretty easy once you understand the layout and tools. Most people start off with a free Canva layout, change the text and maybe the background colour and you're done!
Visual content is more than 40 times more likely to get shared on social media than other types of content. As a business owner or entrepreneur, that’s something you don’t want to miss out on. So what is the easiest way to create & schedule graphics for social media?
After testing out a ton of different products, free software, paid software and services, I truly believe I can answer that question!

The biggest problem people have with keywords is actually choosing them.
Most people choose far too broad keywords and spend countless hours optimising their site for these keywords – keywords they will most likely never get found for, so all in all a great big waste of time.
Do you define being successful in monetary terms? When you reach a 6 figure salary or make your first million? perhaps it's simpler than that for you. Maybe financial success to you is having your debts paid off and making your mortgage repayments each month with money left to 'play' with.
Success doesn't always have to be financial though.
You can be successful emotionally, mentally or physically. Success can be about power, fame, status or simply in being healthy and happy in your personal life.
What is the most important thing you need to be successful in Business?
This question is one of the most common questions I come across in the business networking and support groups I am a member of – you see a real variety of answers and it’s something that everyone will have their own answer to.
If business is slow, the economy sucks or you want to give your business a kick in the backside - speed up! DO MORE! More networking, more face to face events, more meetings, more interviews, videos, FB Lives, more guest blogging or podcasts!
2. There is NO BOX!
As an employee all told all day what to do: how to dress, what time to turn up, take lunch and go home. What tasks you have to accomplish that day, how they should be done and you have to abide by the rules set within the company you work for.
Most social media marketing campaigns are primarily designed to help gain more social following, increase product/brand visibility or drive traffic to a website. Here are quick must-know tips you should consider when rolling out your next social media campaign.
1. Reserve your username across all social media platforms
Reserve all your usernames across all the social media platforms even if you don’t need them now. These keeps off imposters, and trust me; you are going to need those usernames some day!
"I've met so many who have opened doors for me and remained in my life both personally and professionally. After a while, networking doesn't feel like 'networking.' It's both serendipitous and unpredictable, and something that just naturally becomes part of your work life and your personal life."
