Do you like me?

Social media can be a trap when it comes to this question. So many businesses are looking at ‘likes’ and follows as a way of measuring their success online. Unfortunately this mindset leads to a lot of wasted time and some bruised egos and hurt feelings.

Why? You might ask. Isn’t that what social media marketing is all about? Gaining a huge following and getting a ton of likes.

I hate to break it to you but these are considered ‘vanity metrics’ and don’t actually move the needle when it comes to building a brand and…


Most people don’t realize the value of using art in content marketing and as a result they don’t use it very well. Most of the time marketers use cheap stock photos from low budget stock photo sites or from the public domain.

This is perfectly ok if you are creating images that have faded out backgrounds or you are making memes that don’t need to be high quality. It can also work out if you have a lot of time to look for the perfect image to use and can comb through hundreds of cheap photos.

What is a budget? A budget is simply a written plan for your money. What sort of income you bring in and then what are the expenses you have. Put these down on the same piece of paper (or electronic document) and you have the beginnings of a budget.

Most people think that budgeting stifles their freedom and tells them what to do. This is, not the case when you get to create your own budget. Here’s the thing though. In order to work it has to be realistic. …


Successful goal setting is all about being smart. Setting S.M.A.R.T. goals anyway. I am sure you have heard this term before. Smart goals are ones that are Simple, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Timely. This means ones that you can actually accomplish in a reasonable amount of time and that make sense to complete at this time.

Realistically, goals are already a part of every aspect of your life. For example: Do you want fresh breath regularly? …


Let’s talk about art in your biz. We can look at art and we can create art. Both of these activities will help you be happier and more profitable. Yes, it’s true. Art is not just for fun.

We all have equal amounts of time in a day and each of us chooses how we will spend that time. The funny thing is, different people look like they have more time than others do. Why is that? It comes down to time management and how you choose to plan, prioritize and spend the hours you have every day.

When it comes to calendars and planners do you love digital ones, are you old school with physical planners or do you enjoy a combination of both? This is a question that came up recently and I decided to do a bit of research and compare these options.

Have you ever caught yourself thinking that there is never enough time in a day for everything? If you have then it’s probably because you aren’t scheduling your time effectively. Many busy people run from one thing to the next without taking time to organize their days. Using a planner and looking at not only daily but weekly, monthly and yearly events lets you know what to expect and plan accordingly. Set specific intention, goals, due dates and deadlines for work, life and family will help you stay on track and have plenty of time each day.
