Busness BLAB - How to Optimize Your Instagram Bio
You know what they say, first impression matter… and that isn’t any different for social media! When someone stops by your platform, you have a matter of literally seconds to impress them or convince them to keep scrolling! And, one of the biggest mistakes that we see people making is NOT optimizing their bio in a way that will make viewers want more! Optimizing your bio is your chance to speak directly to the person you can help, tell them why they need your help, how you can help them, and then direct them to sign up or purchase the thing you offer to help them! It can feel overwhelming, but you just have to go back to the basics! So, grab your phone and pull out the ol’ bio! Let’s dust off the cobwebs and make it sparkle! ✨So that first line… WHO YOU ARE (your name/title)- This is the name field on Instagram, and it is separate from your user name! ✨WHAT YOU DO- This is your chance to tell the people exactly who you help and HOW you do that! ✨WHO YOU SERVE- Just in case your ICA (ideal client avatar) was second guessing if what you do is for them, this is where you get to spell it out. ✨WHAT YOU OFFER- This is your call to action! ✨Now put it all together! If you have space, throw in some emojis to make it sparkle, and you’ve got yourself a fully optimized (client-attracting) Instagram bio! If you need help getting clear on any of these questions, determining your ICA, or figuring out how to use your voice to stand out, make sure you check out The Brand You Strategy! Enrollment is opening at the end of this week! Have questions? Contact Megan

We all know that girl on Instagram… she’s running an amazing business that is clearly her passion, her life seems perfect, and she’s raking in the dough!

So, what are some simple things that you can start implementing today to take your business to the next level and increase productivity? ...We’re going to share our faves… in no specific order!  ⏰ Decide and Commit to Creating HABITS ⏰Time Block ⏰Batch Your Tasks ⏰Set a Timer For Tasks ⏰Get Clear on Priorities ⏰Put Your Phone Away ⏰Spend Time and Energy Doing What You’re Good At ⏰Create Systems to Stay Organized ⏰Know When to Say NO

It’s Thanksgiving, and though things look a bit different this year, we still have so much to be grateful for! Practicing gratitude isn’t just important each year in November, it is something that will benefit us year-round, and most successful and happy people have a strong gratitude game! When we think about the idea of being grateful, we have our go tos (family, partner, children), but we often don’t think of extending gratitude to ourselves as women and mamas. The idea of honoring ourselves is something that can be so powerful! In this episode, the Boss Ladies are joined by the founder of the Mornings for Mamas Movement and The Mornings for Mamas Podcast, Alison Ryan. Alison talks with us about honoring ourselves as mamas, the benefits of a morning practice, how and when to put our needs first, and so much more! Alison shares some vulnerable and powerful moments of her life that have brought her to where she is today and we are here for it! Take some time this Thanksgiving to recognize and show gratitude for yourself, because you are doing an amazing job...and you deserve it! 🗣 Want to join the conversation?

BLAB How to Build Your Audience
You have determined that the world needs what you have to offer, but how the heck do you get it in front of them?!? You need an audience! But how?!?! Growing your audience online seems like a simple task, but it can be harder than you may anticipate. Here is what we have learned as we have continued to (slowly) grow our platform 🙌 🤩Get your mindset right Slow and steady always wins- Chances are you won’t go from 100-10,000 overnight, and that is ok! What are you offering? Is your message clear? Do you believe in it? 🤩Make sure you are owning your product or services before you start trying to sell it to others. 🤩Don’t rely on your friends/family- Ouch! But take this wake up call from us now so that it stings a little less when you come to realize this on your own. Yes, our friends and family support the heck out of us, but in the heavily saturated social media land, they are feeling just as overload as the rest of us. 🤩Quality over quantity- Numbers don’t matter! Don’t build your audience with fake people! 🤩Put yourself out there- They won’t see you if you don’t get in front of them! 🤩Stay authentic- Ah, authenticity… the thing we all say we want to see online, but still aren’t getting! I’m the first to say I love a curated page, but being vulnerable and showing your audience who you are is a guaranteed way to connect. 🤩Make it easy- Don’t leave your audience guessing how to do the things you want from them. 🤩Listen- Yes, this is your thang… but you’re not the one buying it! Give your audience a voice and LISTEN to what they are telling you. 🤩Stay grateful- Your audience is CHOOSING you and that says a lot! They could be hanging out anywhere else online, but they are here supporting what you have to offer.

Mashed-up Families
With Thanksgiving right around the corner, we wanted to take some time to discuss families. We talk about our families a lot- our spouses, our kids, sometimes our parents or in-laws. But we also recognize that families don’t all look the same. Not everyone has a Mom, a Dad, siblings, Grandparents, etc. Family structures and dynamics can be messy, mashed-up and complicated to say the least. Those are the families we discuss in this episode. Our guest - Seth Molano- shares with us his emotional journey from growing up in foster care and getting adopted, to finding his bio Dad and siblings. It's a wild ride, and Seth shares it all. His wife Felicia weighs in on Seth's resiliency and commends his role as Super-Dad. Mikki shares her two stories of finding long lost siblings on social media, and we discuss how our upbringings and relationships with our families have shaped us as parents. It's a deep, thoughtful conversation, so grab your tissues and join us.  🗣 Want to join the conversation?

Andrea is open about what gifts she has found through her suffering, how to handle triggers, and ways that friends and family can support their loved one suffering loss. This is the kind of loss that no woman should have to suffer, but 1 in 4 of us do, and we don’t need to suffer alone! If you or someone you care about has lost a child to stillbirth, miscarriage, SIDS, or any other cause at any point during pregnancy or infancy, please join us in raising awareness this October. We are so thankful to Andrea for being so open, and for extending such a big hand of love and support out to our community by sharing her story. We will continue the conversation and never let these sweet babies be forgotten. Andrea has invited anyone suffering this type of loss to reach out to her if you need support, or to talk it through. Please find ways to spread awareness and more ways to support bereaved parents below: Star Legacy’s October #NeverBeStill campaign seeks to break the silence surrounding stillbirth and other pregnancy/infant losses by not only educating the public about ways to support bereaved families but also empowering expectant mothers to have a healthy pregnancy.

Let’s talk about sex baby….but not how you think. We are talking Gender and the “traditional” roles that come along with it. In this episode the Boss Ladies are joined by the incredible boss babe and mom to be -Jessica Hickman- 🙌👏 Jessica and her husband are total couple goals and breaking the mold of the typical gender roles! We dive into everything from our stance on gender reveals (and how to not start wildfires), to what roles we each carry in our households vs. the roles modeled in our childhood. As a career driven and full time working mom to be, Jessica has some big changes to adjust to, and shares her plan on handling parenting roles - she will continue to be the main earner for their family while hubby becomes the main caregiver-, values and traditions that are important to instill on her child, how she may want to parent differently than she was raised, and the internal struggle that many of us woman feels when we are split between the desire to grow our careers and become a mother. The conversation hits many hot topics as we discuss the challenges of raising boys and girls, what changes we can make within ourselves to break the modeling of “traditional” gender roles, and how heavy and important the responsibility of teaching consent and consideration for others is. This episode is full of “girl power”, and though women's rights have come so far, 2020 has made things a little uncertain for the progression of our rights moving forward. The topic of gender roles and identity is not something we should ever stop talking about, and we are so thankful to have had the opportunity to share this necessary conversation with Jessica!

Discover Your Power Color
In this episode the Boss Ladies will teach you how to discover your Power Color based on your power number 👊🏻 To start, let's calculate your daily number. It's a pretty simple calculation. First, add the full current date (day, month, year) to your full birth date, then reduce to one digit. You won't reduce to one digit if you get to a number of 11, 22, or 33. For example, if you were born on January 12 1987 and today was May 5, 2020: 1 + 1 + 2 + 1 + 9 + 8 +7 + 5 + 5 + 2 + 0 + 2 + 0= 43 ———- 4 + 3 = 7 In this example, your daily power number would be 7. Now, with whatever number you land on, you'll want to correlate your wardrobe for the day with the color of that number to ensure you have a balanced day. After you've made your calculation, review the color and number guide below to determine the color you'll need. NUMBER: COLOR: • 1 Red • 2 Orange • 3 Yellow • 4 Green • 5 Blue • 6 Indigo • 7 Violet • 8 Pink Rose • 9 Gold • 11 Silver/White • 22 Red/Gold •33 Sky Blue Now that you've determined what your daily power color is, let's break down how each color is supposed to help the energies in your day: RED: This color in your daily power color represents your need for balance in energies in your power, independence, and authority in the situations you'll face for the day. ORANGE: Orange has a focus on giving you a balance in your tranquility and peace. YELLOW: Yellow balances your optimism and joy in your energy. GREEN: Green provides a more systematic and organized day. BLUE: Blue gives you the freedom to make changes that you've been holding back on. INDIGO: Indigo balances your responsibilities and your love in personal relationships (or with yourself). VIOLET: Violet balances your spiritualism and intuition to help you find guidance within yourself. PINK ROSE: Pink rose balances your gentleness and tenderness. GOLD: Gold helps you materialize the things you need. SILVER/WHITE: Silver helps you focus on a vision and illuminates the path you need to take for your future. RED/GOLD: Red and Gold balances the power you need in achieving abundance and prosperity. SKY BLUE: Sky blue is the calmest of blues and balances your energy in selfless love and fidelity.
