There’s no denying everyone is living in a bit of fear right now… with their health, their food supply, their mental well being, their family, kids schooling, all the things that usually don’t consume this much worry and brain space.
Besides the usual day to day life – we then have an online business to keep afloat.
Then the question you’re suddenly asking is..
“How do I market my online business and personal brand while being sensitive to the current environment?”
Boy, is that easier said than done. Especially when hard looks like missed sales goals, flopped ads, email unsubscribes, client return requests and alllll the things that get us down and out.
And no… all the cute Insta quotes in the world can’t pick us back up at times.
When we want things to be easy or at minimum handed a clear path to success… and we expect our actions to bring us closer to our goals… we are inevitably disappointed when things don’t go as planned.
Multitasking seems like a great way to get a lot done at once. I mean us entrepreneurs are always looking to save time and get more things done so if we can knock different tasks right after one another or at once – isn’t that a good way to increase productivity?
While multitasking might seem like you are accomplishing many things at once, research has shown that our brains are not nearly as good at handling multiple tasks as we like to think we are.
Ever wonder what the world’s most successful entrepreneurs looked like when they first started?
Ding, Ding, Ding…
Like beginners. They had no clue what they were doing.
Seriously. No one has it all figured out, especially in the early days.
But if you ever want to hit goals and reach the success you dream of – you must train yourself to start BEFORE you’re ready.
Alright, so there’s an old saying that goes along the lines that if you do not have a brand, you have a commodity.
First let’s start off by explaining what commodities are. Commodities are interchangeable goods. And yes I was raised a farm girl so here me out on this one….
Alright, today I want to talk about something near to my heart this past year. I want to discuss those times when we get into a situation and we tell someone we are going to do something and then… by some matter of the situation – you don’t feel as that comment is valid any longer.
If there’s one business that’s easy to start and one you can make income right away with, it’s one in direct sales — having been a part of a few direct sales models in my day, I’ve seen marketing done well, while also done horribly wrong.

Let’s get real. Feeling completely overwhelmed and exhausted in your personal or professional life has nothing to do with how many awake hours you have to work.
It’s because the hours you do have you spend too much time trying to juggle more than one thing.
The highest cost of doing multiple things at once is a gradual, long-term decline in your productivity and satisfaction.
If I’m being honest, When you get in the habit of always dividing your attention you are half-assing every activity or task you do.
As we close out 2019 and enter a new year and a new decade it’s only appropriate to honor the past year by celebrating your joys, mourning your losses, and shaking your head at the wonder of all of it.
Today I wanted to get very honest and transparent with you and share an unexpected joy of mine from 2019.
I know many of you have direct sales experience or are currently in one so I think this story will help you in many ways find clarity if you are thinking of expanding or pivoting your business portfolio.
In today’s world of digital marketing and online sales, one thing to understand from the beginning is that you’re “selling” so much more than just your product or service on a daily basis.
Every day readers of your original content are paying attention to the experience that your brand gives them, and the emotions that you invoke within them.
What this means is that you are not selling your product, service or opportunity…
You’re in reality selling yourself, your image and your reputation.
Which is short, is your personal brand.
You sell you personal brand every time you show up online.
I help females who want more clarity and purpose go from feeling stuck and stagnant to having a confident, brand-focused business in less than a month. Using my Stay in Your Lane Brand Method I offer them a roadmap to uncover their superpower and leverage it to make their brand more profitable faster. Some use this method to crack the code on what to post that will attract more clients, while others use it to build an extra stream of income with a digital product offer.
Most weekdays, you'll find me in (intentional) creative-mode working from my home office… but evenings are reserved for playing with my kiddos and sipping margaritas with friends. As a coach's wife, most weekends are spent cheering on my husband's basketball team, attending sporting events here in Manhattan, Kansas or traveling!
