LIVE Workshop on Marketing for Mere Mortals

I dunno how your Monday is going so far but…

My toddler forced-opened my left eye this morning. “Oli 5 more minutes please.”

As it turns out, you can’t snooze your kids. Go figure!

She wanted “lechita con chocolate”, which is code for “get up mommy and make me an almond milkshake with cacao powder.”

Dictators. Tiny little dictators. That’s what they are.

Thanks for asking.

Yes, I need a moisturizer to hide the fact I’ve been tired since 2015. But to tell you the truth (oh my gosh now I’m getting all teary eyed), I want to do this again tomorrow. Be a mom. Work from home. Make smoothies on demand. Conquer the world. Be myself for a living. I want to do it again and again. Then the next day. And the one after that.

I wouldn’t trade this for a fancy yacht or no cellulite.

And I suspect the reason you’re here is because your dream life is as unglamorous as mine, but that doesn’t prevent you from making a huge difference, does it?

Exactly.

Join me LIVE today at 5PM EST

I’m fired up about keeping it real.

This time, me and my buddy April Bowles are bringing down marketing from it’s high horses to show you 13 ways we promote our businesses in stretchy pants. The stretchy pants part is not a requirement.

Our marketing strategies might not be the dazzling, glittering, glossy stuff you typically hear the Illuminati news, but it’s the stuff that works for us mere mortals, who live in the real world. Plus, it’s the kinda marketing that makes you feel good, doesn’t break the piggy bank and leaves plenty left to buy organic. Our kind.

Tune in here!

In the meantime, go watch today’s FREE training: 13 Keys to Online Success – a totally new way to promote your biz using the Internet that ain’t spammy, pushy or pretentious AT ALL. Taught by the Queen Bee of modern marketing herself, Marie Forleo.

Wanna Hangout?

Nine years ago, I quit my “real” job to become an online superstar.

Kidding.

I wanted to quit my “real” job to become an artist. The online superstar part was totally optional.

I started a blog, cause I though that’s what you do when you want to make a living on the Internet.

For months my grandma was the only one that read it.

And then, I got this email from a girl who lived millions of miles away inviting me to be a part of a blog tour.

My first reaction was: She must have the wrong person. So I immediately replied, “YES!!!” Just like that, in all caps and more exclamations than I’d like to admit. I acted quickly. Secured my chance. God forbid she found out I wasn’t really a big deal and changed her mind.

That’s how I met my best friend and one of the most brilliant, biz savvy and downright insane creative minds in the world – April Bowles.

The rest, as they say, is history.

If you don’t already know April, you will absolutely LO-VE her. Like, girl crush, psycho stalker mode LOVE her to pieces.

She is wicked smart (like Hermione), bossy as hell (it’s hilarious), can fish tail her own hair (so jealous), runs the world with a cup of hot tea in her hand (preferably an Anthropology mug), and is the girl to blame behind all my ku-ra-zy pants ideas (including but not limited to making me wear an adult tutu for a promo trailer.)

We’ve been partner for longer than anyone we’ve seen these days. And in Internet years, which fly faster than dog years, that means something. We are a dinosaur duo, pretty much. We’ve survived launches + vacations (with our husbands) + Hurricanes (literally and metaphorically) + sickness + health + loss + birth… we made it through… and we’re still standing, but it feels more like hanging out.

Wanna hangout with us?

Over the next few weeks, I’m hosting a bunch of LIVE events to chat about creative business + lifestyle design… and the messy middle. You bring the caramel popcorn, I’ll bring my bestie.

April and I come together ONCE A YEAR to bring you Operation World Domination – a mastermind for creatives and innovators who want to make a living doing art, any kind.

We’re spilling the beans about what’s coming ahead TODAY!!! A Facebook Live at 3PM EST. You can join us right here on my fanpage!

It’s going to be a super fun call. You want to be there. If you can’t make it, check my page later for the replay.

And then, we have a bunch of other stuff planned for us to hangout.

Here’s our upcoming event calendar:

Here are the links:

Yes… that list includes a Q&A with the one and only Marie Forleo. Pinch me!

We’re so excited to host a call with Marie this year so OUR PEOPLE have the opportunity to ask her questions related to B-School. Instead of a huge call where you feel completely overwhelmed, you get your own special call with us as the hosts, helping you to feel comfortable. Come prepared with any questions you have for Marie and we’ll help you get them answered.

April and I hope to see you today at 3PM EST on my FB Fanpage.

I’m throwing a dance party on my Instagram right before. Come watch!

I’m soooooo excited to kickstart our Operation World Domination and B-School 2018 season with you.

My #1 Money Making Tip

A lot of people get stuck on the making-money part of being girl boss. “But, how do you REALLY make a living Mayi?”, they ask.

It’s a good question.

Everything eventually comes back to money, doesn’t it? Well, it’s gotta come from somewhere, right? I wish leprechauns will just sneak into our homes at night while we’re sleeping with large bags of cash. But until then, we gotta bring peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to the table legally.

You’ve followed your calling, now what?

The first step to making money is to stop Googling things like, “how to make money.” Not because you shouldn’t want to make money, but because the stuff you’re going to find by doing that is highly likely going to help you lose money.

You wanna know what my #1 money making tip? Hit play!

Focus on surviving.

Get rich slowly, by your own means.

That’s how you build a profitable empire. That’s how you earn the badge of THE BOSS.

Now, I would love to hear your #1 money making tip. Share it in the comments!

Turn Hearts Into Instagram Clients

You don’t have to sound like an infomercial to do business on Instagram. Turning hearts into clients doesn’t have to be a pain either.

If you’re stuck stalking people instead of earning cash, you need to rethink your Instagram strategy.

You don’t have one, do you? Don’t hit the panic button. I’m here to help.

In a nutshell:

  • You want to infusing your personality into your business through Instagram Stories.
  • You want to show that you mean business by having a professional looking feed.
  • And finally, you want to direct your followers to the place where they can learn more + sign up or buy now.

Does this sound like spamming to you? I think you can do it. Get clear on your path to profit + start making some good money doing what you love on Instagram.

Keep me posted on how it goes!

Till we meet again.
