So in my last post I talked about “Walking Towards the Door Expecting it to Open”. But what happens when it doesn’t open? That was my reality a couple of weeks ago when I interviewed for an In-Arena Host position for the Washington Wizards and didn’t get it. Have you ever felt so confident about something and then it not work out in your favor or the way you expected it to? Naturally I was super disappointed because I know I would have killed that position if I was given the opportunity, but it was someone else’s opportunity, not mine.
I figured I’d share this with my followers because sometimes social media can make people’s lives look perfect, easy and full of “WINS”. But that’s not the case, it takes hardwork and persistence. So what do you do when the door you thought was going to open is suddenly locked? Easy, just walk to the next door because eventually you’ll walk through a door and enter into a room that’s specifically tailored for YOU and YOUR SUCESS! KEEP PUSHING AND NEVER GIVE UP BECAUSE ALL IT TAKES IS THE RIGHT “YES” TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE!
Having a photoshoot for your personal brand can be a very daunting prospect, so much so that it might put you off ever doing it!
When a few of my photographer friends suggested a shoot swap, I was well up for it. Not only did I need piccies of myself, but I also wanted to see how it feels to be in my client’s shoes...here's what I learnt from the experience...blog post link in bio!
still pinching myself daily.
I remember the only having one vehicle for months. I remember struggling to make our car payments before. I remember never thinking I could never afford a luxury car. I remember thinking Cadillacs are for people over 70.
Now we don’t struggle because this car is paid for by the company I work for. And I still think they’re for 70 year olds but I’m fine with that because this thing keeps me in my own lane, makes sure I don’t merge when a car is next to me, heats and cools my buns and is super safe.
This car is a confirmation of hard work & my goal is that everyone on my team gets theirs 😭🙌🏻 the power of sharing & helping others is my goal! If I could do this - I know you could too🖤

Had so much fun at the @parenfaire yesterday !! 🎃Swipe for more photos 👉🏼 Couldn’t pick up good a WiFi signal so I was unable to share anything to my stories but that actually made me enjoy the experience more because I could be there FULLY in the moment. I got some cute earrings, drank pumpkin cider, did a tarot reading, snapped some photos, and saw SO many cute dogs 🐶 Like so 👏🏼 many I didn’t want to leave.
Having a creative career means you really gotta balance your time on your device for “work” and for “fun” (aka BOUNDARIES) which I can say I NOW do a pretty good job at... I used to not have any boundaries with my phone + social media and after a while you really feel like it sucks out your soul (and energy) 👻 I am very conscious of how I spend my time on my phone now and encourage you to do the same!

One of the biggest mistakes we see businesses make when running Facebook™ or Instagram™ ads is they’re looking for 🏧INSTANT results.
Now don’t get me wrong, you can get some pretty amazing results📊📈, and sometimes it can happen quickly.
However, the truth is, for most businesses, it’s going to take longer.
Even those quick results you hear people say they get out of the gate, 🤷won’t last.
You might think that I’m being a bit pessimistic with that statement, but that’s actually an advertising truth💣, no matter the platform you’re advertising on.
Even more, it's the nature of the Facebook™ and Instagram™ platforms.
You see, the algorithm looks for low hanging fruit🍒🍋🍊 as soon as ads are set live. It then takes that data and starts learning about what your ideal prospect looks like in the Facebook™ or Instagram™ ecosystem and makes adjustments from there.
If you’ve ever run ads and had GREAT results the first two weeks and then it tanks📉👇….this is why!! So many incredible businesses have stopped 🚫running ads because of this and walk away thinking "Facebook™/Instagram™ ads don’t work!" That couldn’t be further from the truth.

❤️ Can I tell How lucky Brooklyn is to have a BIG BRO named BRAYLON ☺️ oh he loves hard, he’s protective, inquisitive, handsome, and funny AF! He kisses & hugs my belly all the time.
Even better... he’s made sure to let me know that my belly has FINALLY outgrown my boobs 😂😂😂😂 Ahhhh Thanks Bray Bray now get your a** outta my face 😂😂
I feel so attacked/exposed 😅😭 anyone else? And yet, and yet — this is so important! The past few months have been such a huge lesson in this.
Asking for help may feel vulnerable AF — it certainly has for me, an overachiever-island-of-a-woman who’s always prided herself on getting shit done herself, no matter what!
But what I’ve come to realise + experience over the last few weeks alone, is that when you open yourself up to help with humility and grace, things just start to shift:
Situations that seemed deadlocked, suddenly open up, out of the blue. Problems (those you asked for help for, but not just!) that seemed impossible to solve, just get taken care of — sometimes without rhyme nor reason 🤷🏽♀️
I can’t explain it exactly, but honestly? I don’t need to! In the face of all the magic I’ve witnessed since asking for help recently, all I can do is bow down and give thanks.
Consider this “I’LL JUST DO THIS MYSELF DON’T WORRY” chick converted 😉
What’s one small thing you would love some help with right now? Maybe you could pop it in the comments below. We all rise when we support each other. 💕
With love from Seville 💃🏽
