In this episode I did my first LIVE podcast. What is a Live Podcast. A Live Podcast is where I go live on Instagram (or it can be any other platform) to do a live recording of the podcast. So while I am live I am also recording the episode on my Macbook Pro in Quicktime.
Yes, that’s all I use to do my podcast, pretty simple and uncomplicated. This is what has made me fall in love with Podcasting. I have really come to love and enjoy running this podcast and I am happy for you to be tuning in to listen every week if you’re an avid listener or someone who tunes in occasionally either way, thanks for tuning in you are going to enjoy this one as Content Creation is a huge topic today especially if you want to position yourself as an authority and build that like know and trust factor for your business and your brand.

We're now at Episode #14, ahhhh the podcast is really in it's teenage years haha
So with growth comes a little bit of change and in this episode I get really vulnerable. It's on the aspect of pivoting. As you all know insanity is doing the same things over and over and expecting different results.
In this episode:
- you will learn about becoming laser-focused on who you want to ATTRACT and focusing on them ONLY
- being true to your ideal client and not settling
- being unapologetic about who you are for, who you serve and who you DON'T
- how to work with your best clients or customers
Everything is not for everybody and the same rings true for your business, you don't serve everyone, you are not for everyone and guess what that's okay. As usual I am accompanied by the sweet sounds of the birds in the background. They're my ambience okay.
In this episode I share how to identify time wasters and how to avoid them through creating a proper funnel for your business, committing to that funnel and automating the process so you don't get sucked into serving people who come under the guise of wanting help but they just really want to chat endlessly in the DMs with no end in sight, in some rare cases they may also just want your services and expertise for free!
Today we explore:
- sales funnel and some automation tactics and strategies you can use, implement or explore.

"Scotiabank will replace its debit cards with the Scotiabank Visa Debit Card to give customers greater access anywhere Visa is accepted." - Excerpt from Loop Article by LAURA DOWRICH-PHILLIPS
Read Full Article Here: http://www.looptt.com/content/scotiabank-introduces-visa-debit-card-among-new-digital-services
Do you realize what this means?!?!
Replace, meaning your regular bank account now has access to shop online and also receive payments through PayPal connection if you so desire to use PayPal.
This will also mean more of your customers can shop online via your website through WiPay or PayPal or BuzzPay. As I get more information on the who, what, when, why when it comes to card limits, upgrading to the new cards and it's limitations or lack of limitations I will follow up with an updated podcast episode.
