Or something a little more serious. Like ‘sometimes with email, or messages in general we tend to have a knee jerk reaction, blame ourselves or apologize for things that do not need an apology. Your life and schedule is just as important as the person you are talking to. @danidonovan made the cutest and most helpful graphic for those jerk reaction, with more controlled and self-prioritizing responses. 📸: @danidonovan

#tbt to one year ago today when I was waiting patiently for my 9th IVF transfer (5th attempt for my rainbow). This was the transfer I remember feeling completely broken. In the 6 months prior to this transfer I lost 2 babies, had 1 cancelled cycle, 2 failed cycles, and underwent surgery to remove both of my fallopian tubes. I felt like I was going through the motions of IVF with no end in sight. I can see on my face the hope fading away, and it makes me sad to know how lost I got in this journey. If I only knew then that this would be my last transfer ever... 🌈

When you start getting down on yourself...remember this: What you're meant to create is for YOU to create. So, get to it...the world is waiting.😉

Entrepreneur : nom que j’ai décidé de donner à la série de portraits d’entrepreneurs que j’ai rencontré. Deux portraits par semaine le lundi et le jeudi. Cette semaine c’est Racky Daffé créatrice de @alyfatoys qui s’est prêtée au jeu. Elle est créatrice de jeux pour enfants ... La suite se passe juste ici 👉🏾👉🏾👉🏾
Pre-webinar and after webinar sequences in Messenger double or triple the sales.
Of course they do, with the 4x higher opening rates and 20x click-through rates compared to email marketing.
Let me know in DM if you want to start leveraging Messenger in your funnel. ❤️
You are the mighty.
The all in fierce, female entrepreneur!
I know this.
But sooner or later, you will wear TF out. Seriously - if you're not planning right now, I'm telling you, you will.
Listen, I know I'm fierce. I know I can do anything I set my mind to, because I have - over + over.
But I have worn myself to the point of nervous breakdown on many occasions, because I just didn't know how the hell I was gonna get it all done.
So there was this one time (lol, here goes another story😆)...where I had to design something like 250 cameras for DVF in like 2 weeks. I was like, "oh sure - we've got this". We will not disappoint. I mean, it's THE Diane Von Furstenberg Fashion House, creator of the wrap dress, former Princess, Ms. Diane herself!
Believe, we've got this! The answer was always YES when she called!
The problem is...whenever she called, it was like days, or just a very short time that we had to make it happen - the fashion industry is so rush rush, amirite?
Let me tell you - by day 3, I was like "oh sh*t". We don't "got this"😂💯 Because how in the world did I think I was supposed to single parent (drive the babies to school, pick them up, feed them 3 times per day, take care of my home, spend time with them, SLEEP, RUN the business - you know; emails, calls, order supplies, etc.) when I was only getting done 5-6 complete cameras per day at that point.
I'd made a HUGE miscalculation.
And my business - and I - suffered for it.
I mean...I'm Superwoman, just like you...so of course it got done.
Granted, Nay Nay (my designer at the time, now great friend) and I did not sleep for 2 weeks.
I honestly still can't tell you how they all got completed - sheer will. I cried the entire time, lol.
I couldn't even enjoy the win... The mathematics of it seriously didn't add up.
We did it.
But I made a vow to myself to never ever do that again.
For the sake of my relationship with Nay Nay, lol...the sanity of my boys - and for myself... Text POSH to 77948 for more!!
🛑 5 Things You Need to Stop Saying:
1. “If only I had his/her ________”
2. “I wish my _______ were/was ________”
3. “I’d be _______ if I just _______”
4. “Maybe if I _______ then they/it wouldn’t be so ______”
5. “My ______ should be more/less _____”
☑️Your body should never be victim to bullying.
☑️Your body should never become an unhealthy obsession.
☑️Your body should never be compared to another’s.
☑️Your body should never be criticized to the point of complete destruction.
Your body is YOUR body for a reason, I can’t compare my (shorter than most) 5”2 stature and physique to that of my best friend who is 6”0. I can’t bully my body into changing in the ways I desire. I can’t criticize my body and believe that I will ever love what I see in the mirror from doing so. I can’t obsess over the parts of my body and think that I will ever be at peace with my God given hips, nose, booty, waist, back, legs, etc. ————————
These common phrases and practices will never make you satisfied with yourself. They will never promote healthy self love and will certainly not pave the road to self acceptance.
Instead of highlighting the “bad” or the “I wish I could change”. Focus on what you love about yourself; applaud what makes you feel sexy and beautiful and build off of that! When you catch yourself saying these things, just STOP. You are always in control of the love/hate you give/inflict to/on yourself. There’s always a choice, and I hope you choose love.

Estée Lauder Cosmetics Inc.⠀
After years of operating her cosmetics business, Lauder made it official in 1946 by forming the corporation that still bears her name today. She and her husband were the entire company at the time, and they offered only a handful of products. They were also making these items using the kitchen of a former restaurant. The following year, Lauder had a career breakthrough. She landed her first department store order for her cosmetics. Saks Fifth Avenue ordered $800 in her products, which sold out in two days. Lauder also originated the practice of giving a free gift with purchase marketing strategy around this time.⠀
In 1953, Lauder launched her Youth Dew product. This bath oil also doubled as a perfume and it quickly became a big hit with consumers. The business continued to thrive in the next decade with its expansion to overseas markets and the launches of the men's product line Aramis and the Clinique brand.⠀
As a result of her intense drive and ambition, Lauder became one of the richest self-made women in the world. She ran in elite social circles, attending parties thrown by the likes of Nancy Reagan. Lauder also enjoyed warm relations with such royal figures as Wallis Simpson, Duchess of Windsor, and actress Grace Kelly, also known as Princess Grace of Monaco.⠀

I understand that we all have plenty of things in a day to keep us busy: school, work, family, and the list could go on. We go through seasons where life can be more demanding than others. I believe that having a good work ethic and getting the job done is important, but my concern isn’t with us being responsible and taking care of those life things. My concern is when our identity actually becomes, “I’m busy.” When your worth comes from how much stuff you accomplish in a day, or when you think “I’m busy” makes you look or feel important. // read more... link in profile//

Big News!!! Just have to tell you that I’m feeling so thankful, happy and excited to share with you that as of today, I’m taking our Start Loving You page and brand back to its roots....
in 2016, I created BLOOM (By Loving On Ourselves More, we bloom ™️) as a getaway conference from moms and their friends to be celebrated, inspired and motivated.
After 3 successful events and 2 of those with business partners/friends/Start Loving You Co-founders, @jennygrumbling & @kristydickerson), it’s now time for me to really grow this community and conferences even more - I kinda can’t stop the vision here and I’ve got so many plans for us! So - I bought out my partners and am ready to 🌸🌼🌺!!!
You can still find Kristy and Jenny at @startplanner and you’ll see us continually cheering for each other!!! So proud of all of us for the work we’ve put in together! ............................................. BLOOM mom tribe is for ANY woman, whether you’re a mom to kids, a fur baby or your career (or maybe you just mother your partner or you’re a fantastic and nurturing aunt).....Whatever it t is that you do as a “mom”, I know it can be exhilarating and exhausting at the same time and what makes it easier is having a community who gets you! With a new team in place and my heart happy for these exciting changes, I hope you’ll continue to BLOOM with me!
P.S. you might see a little more of me on the BLOOM mom tribe instagram page but I promise no bikini pics, political opinions or religion or race references - there are plenty of other outlets where you can find that. This brand is about uplifting each other and #womensupportingwomen because we are #bettertogether 🙌🏼🙌🏽🙌🏿! 📷 @chelseapatricia
Clarity is Everything. If you know what you want & others around you are on a roller coaster you must GET OFF the ride to preserve your SANITY🙏🏽😘 #lovefromadistance

👀Wow Now That's A Face! The one I am pulling! This is my passionate teaching face. The way I look when I will do anything to share the knowledge and ideas I have with others .👀.
I seriously love delivering @techpixies Social Media Courses. Working closely with women who are wanting to upskill, return to work, start their own businesses is an absolute privilege and honour.
Seeing their skills develop, their confidence shine and the kindness and support they share with each other is such a beautiful thing.
Thank You @TechPixies for being amazing and for enabling so many women to feel empowered and take their lives to a new happy and exciting level.
God works in crazy ways y’all. This morning, I spoke on all things #marketing and #socialmedia to a room of business men and women!
I discussed brainstorming content, marketing on social media, and a few easy and quick ways to build your email list — because let’s be honest — all roads should lead your website and your email list.
Thank you to this gem of a woman, Tori (@littlesunrae) for inviting me to speak and to Community Business Partnership for encouraging conversations for entrepreneurs to meet, share and grow!
I’m in a season of shifting and making room for the things I’ve once prayed for and I wouldn’t be here today if it weren’t for overwhelming love + support y’all show me.
The future is as big as my obedience allows and I can’t wait to lean in during this journey! Cheers to building our dreams, one blog post, client, service and prayer at a time! 💞💞 #womensupportingwomen#communityovercompetition#cbpartnership#entrepreneurs#socialmediamarketing
