CANCEL YOUR HOT DATE, SHARON. YOU GOTTA HANG WITH ME AND THIS HILARIOUS HUMAN WEDNESDAY NIGHT. (Seriously we snort laugh together 24/7 ). 😛 And, let’s be honest... your date was going to make you pay for Sushi, blast Nickleback in your car (he made you drive ) & try to take you back to his mom’s basement. 🤷♀️ SO, this is your chance to tell him you have plans. #YoureWelcome ⠀ @erikasheffer and I are going HAM on this FREE webinar for you: ⠀ ⚡️Diving deep into Instagram myths that are keeping you from making bank. No one is teaching you these truths about monetizing on the gram and I promise it’s not stupid growth hacks. It’s a legit blueprint that works. ⠀ ⚡️Spilling the (gluten free ) beans on how we monetize our accounts 10x more than women who have 200k + followers. Does more followers actually = more money? ⠀ ⚡️Teaching you exactly how we use IG stories to capture our audience & close sales with ease. Dude. Your DM is the new sales call. It’s time to use your account like a boss & close sales. How are you using your DM? ⠀ ⚡️Sharing how to use your brand stories to sell, so you never feel sleazy or nervous selling. Sales should be a transfer of confidence, not a transfer of creepiness. Are you feeling awkward AF selling on IG? ⠀ You down for this? Tag a girlfriend you wanna jump on the webinar with! 👇🏻 I’m pee my pants excitement. Good thing you won’t see my pants on the webinar. 🤷♀️ ⠀ LINK IN BIO TO SNAG YOUR SPOT. #CancelYourHotDate #SorryBryan
THE REASON YOUR SHIT ISN’T SELLING IS BECAUSE YOU’RE BORING. ⠀ YUUUUP. I SAID IT. GULP. 🤷♀️ ⠀ I’m saying it, because no one else will. And I don’t wanna beat around the bush when it comes to helping you make moolah. I know you’re feeling stuck & I’m always here to give you the real deal. ⠀ Hear me out, Becky. I don't think *you* are boring (I mean, maybe your husband Frank is, but I’m no Sexpert 😂 ), I think your COPY is boring. And your VANILLA COPY needs some 🍫, cacao nibs & gluten free sprinkles. ⠀ Idk about you, but I sure as heck don't buy a product if the sales page makes me fall asleep. I don’t swipe up if the video isn’t engaging. And I don’t purchase the shoes from the IG post unless it gave me value and passion. No value or energy for your product = not throwing my wallet at you! Are you the same? ⠀ You may think entertaining copy is optional. ⠀ You may think video content is optional. ⠀ But, if you're one of these people, you will find it nearly impossible to sell online in 2019. ⠀ You know I always keep it 💯, so I’m not going to Stevia coat this for you. ⠀ Capturing attention is THE #1 most valuable skill for online marketers. Period. ⠀ It’s an art that takes practice, but once mastered, it’s not rocket science. ⠀ If your content is boring (aka it doesn’t stop my scroll, make me laugh or teach me something ), I won't buy your shiz. #aintNoBodyGotTimeForBoring ⠀ Your dream customer is (bored as heck on her couch or toilet ) scrolling & wants to be ENTERTAINED. And simultaneously, she wants to be EDUCATED. (GIVE HER WHAT SHE WANTS, BOO! ) ⠀ This powerful duo is almost as sexy as Bey & J, and it’s called edu-tainment. ⠀ What the heck is EDU-TAINMENT? It’s entertaining your reader WHILE also giving her a nugget of value. ⠀ What are the 3 “E’s” for a sellable piece of content? (Keep this in mind before you create any piece of content! ) 👇🏻 1. ENTERTAIN 2. EDUCATE 3. EVOKE ACTION OR A FEELING ⠀ Are you making sure to infuse these into every piece of content? If not...no more farting around, I want to teach you the exact blueprint! 👇🏻 Jump on my FREE webinar Wednesday to learn how to ACTUALLY monetize on Instagram. ⚡️LINK IN BIO!⚡️
GOING ALL IN ON YOUR DREAM IS SCARY SHIT. But, wanna know what’s scarier? Living with regret. It’s 💯 scarier to die with a dream inside you. ⠀ Dude. If I could give you ONE piece of business advice it would be to fail fast. And fail often. ⚡️ Here’s the real deal. More likely than not, you’re already in your worst case scenario. You’re at the corporate job you hate. You’re already feeling like it’s completely sucking your soul. So, why not jump? Why not leave? Why not take the crazy risk? Why not go all in on your side hustle? Why not say yes to your dream? ⚡️ I wish I had learned this lesson sooner and not been so obsessed with “having all the answers” or “doing it perfect”. I wish I wouldn’t have been afraid to look stupid & make mistakes. I wish I had known that there is no success without first falling on your face. ⚡️ There is no “failure”, when you are left with a lesson. ⚡️ SHARE THIS ON YOUR STORY IF YOU FEELZZZZZ ME. #FailFast #RaiseYourHand #ReadyIsaLie
DUUUUUDE. WHY IS YOUR IG NOT GROWING? DO YOU NEED TO POST MORE SEZY BOOTY PICS?🤷♀️ ⠀ Is it your sucky & confusing bio? Is it your boring captions? Is it your IG stories of your deaf pet Lizard Larry (yo. he’s cute, but #noOneCares )? Is it Marky Z’s stupid algorithm that’s out to get us all? ⠀ You’re a badass coach. You sell a great product. You deliver a killer service. ⠀ But they’re leaving, Becky. (Becky...they’re leaving! ) ⠀ When peeps land on your IG, they’re clicking ‘back’ before they click follow. They go follow someone else instead of reading the epic post you just spent 5 hours crafting. 🤦🏼♀️ ⠀ NOOOOO! FAAAAACK. COME BACKKK! 🏃🏼♀️ ⠀ Worse of all, they’re bouncing before they BUY! Aka 💰 is being left on the table, instead of in your pocket. Not cool. Let’s put that moolah in your bank account. ⠀ So, WHY the cheeseballs aren't people staying on your page? Or watching your stories? Or answering your polls? Or DM-ing you "I want to work with you, girl!”? ⠀ Instead...close your eyes....let’s hold hands & imagine.... what if when they landed on your IG, they: 👇🏻 * Clicked that follow button, ninja fast! WAAACHAAA! (WTF. Where’s the ninja emoji? ) * Binged watched your Stories like a creepy ex boyfriend * Commented & tagged their galpal on your latest post because it was SOOO FIRE * Answered your polls & actually talked to you. 👇🏻 Even better, what if they: *Joined your $5k group coaching program *Melted your Shopify server ordering your merch *Applied to be on your NWM team ⠀ Listen, sister. I’m just gonna say it. There are a lot of POOPY +(boring ) IG trainings and I need to share the REAL DEAL with you. 💩 I need to show you how to *actually* grow & monetize your Instagram. And no, I’m not gonna teach you sleazy growth tactics. ⠀ I've created one of the most engaged tribes on IG and monetized my account of 65k peeps, 10x more than women who have 200k+ followers. #JustSayin ⠀ The (REEEALLLLY ) good news? It wasn't rocket science. You don't have to be a genius to monetize. You don't need a stupid college degree in copywriting. There IS a simple strategy that works. ⠀ And you can do it, too. Want me to show you? 👇🏻 LINK IN BIO TO JOIN FREE WEBINAR!
My left contact lens fell out. (This also happened to me last month speaking on stage. WTF LEFT BALL?! ) ⠀ My high-school boyfriend’s mom was my only viewer. #SorryIdumpedYourSonSharon ⠀ I tripped over my extension cord & my $350 Ring Light crashed on my floor during my awkward sales pitch. “UM UH... BUY MY COURSE!?” ⠀ Yeah. Uh. THAT was my first experience on live video. #CrushedIt😂🤦🏼♀️ ⠀ BUT, I JUST KEPT SHOWING UP. ⠀ For the 1 viewer, which slowly became 50, which slowly became 100, which slowly became thousands. ⠀ No matter how sweaty my forehead & underboobs, I just kept pressing “Go Live”. ⠀ And, here’s some booty-spankin-tough-love for you: 👇🏻 Video Confidence isn’t handed to you. You have to earn it. You have to start with 1 viewer. You have to suck a little bit before you’re Vanna White. ⠀ MY BEST ADVICE FOR 🎥? ⠀ GET OVER YOUR DAMN SELF. YOUR FEAR OF NOT BEING PERFECT IS HOLDING YOU BACK FROM MAKING MONEY. ⠀ ⚡️Pretend it’s a FaceTime with a good friend you are helping. I call this FaceTime Marketing. Keep it valuable & professional yet comfortable & relatable. Don’t be an awkward robot. Just. Be. You. ⠀ ⚡️Channel your nervous energy into excitement. Energy is energy. Your body doesn’t know the difference. ⠀ ⚡️You will get better. I promise. But you can’t get better without practice. You can’t get better if you aren’t willing to look a little silly. ⠀ ⚡️No one doing better than you will judge you. Block the trolls & keep showing up. You’ve got people to serve. ⠀ ⚡️If you “mess” up, just keep going. No one will know that you forgot point #3. Bonus: Put sticky notes on the wall behind you if you need notes. ⠀ ⚡️Your audience wants real (HUGE SIGH OF RELIEF ). They want to see professional, yes, but they also want to see you with no makeup, unscripted & your 3 yr old pooping in the background. You don’t have to look like News Reporter Barbie in every single video. ⠀ ⚡️Don’t make it about you. When we make it about us, we get anxious. Shift the focus from “does my hair look okay?” to “What feeling do I want to convey? What lesson do I want to teach?”. Focus on your message. 👇🏻 WHAT IS YOUR FAV VIDEO PLATFORM??
WHAT WOULD I DO IF I HAD TO START OVER? ZILCH FOLLOWERS. ZERO BIZ. GOOSE EGG SALES. ⠀ Here’s 8 things I would do. 👇🏻 1. Nail my niche. I’d pick 1 specific problem to solve & 1 avatar. I would stay narrow until I became an expert in 1 niche. EX: Fat Loss/Hormones Coach for moms. ⠀ 2. Make sure my IG bio is clear as to who I help, my niche and my offer. I’d take out any fluffy “I love sea turtles” copy & make my bio about my customer, not me. ⠀ 3. Launch a digital product or 3 month coaching program helping women solve 1 problem. I wouldn’t launch more than 1-2 products to stay focused on mastering my niche and expertise. ⠀ 4. Showcase testimonials/do pro bono coaching calls to build social proof. I’d share video testimonials 2-4x week. ⠀ 5. Create niche specific educational/(how-to ) content on my feed & in IG stories. I would lead with educational content more than inspirational content to build trust. Trust = 💰. Learn From Me Content is > Look At Me Content. I’d rotate Research, Results and Role Model Expert in my content. ⠀ 6. Memorize my 3 Macro-Brand stories. I would post Micro-brand stories on IG stories to stay relevant. I would marry my story with my clear solution to build brand recognition. I would respond to every comment & DM to build an engaging community and learn their specific pain points. I would ask them juicy questions to discover their wants. ⠀ 7. Reverse engineer answers + questions to polls/posts to create valuable and shareable content. #GetInTheBrainOfYourCustomer ⠀ 8. Use the DM as my #1 spot to drive engagement, connect & book sales calls. I’d use the video and voice features to add humanization. I’d create a TypeForm to capture leads & market research. ⠀ 9. Create shareable, niche & educational IG story & podcast content to grow my audience. I wouldn’t be a “Life Coach”, but choose a SPECIFIC industry to start. ⠀ 10. Master video (IG stories, IG Live, YouTube and/or Facebook Live to build trust and credibility )! Video Marketing = KING. 👇🏻 PS! 3 MONTH COUNTDOWN TO #paystobebrave! Did you snag your ticket, girl? 🎫
NO ONE GIVES A 💩 ABOUT YOUR BLUE CHECK MARK, SUSAN.🤷♀️ ⠀ I was 19 years young when I published my first blog & my life became “public.” I was 24 when my podcast blew up to 1/2 a million downloads per month. ⠀ I had more eyeballs (& ears ), than ever. I felt more naked, than ever. ⠀ “Who the heck am I to do this? What if they hate me?” ⠀ I’ve been sharing intimate moments with strangers on the interwebs, since college. ⠀ I just wanted to help women.I didn’t know the heavy responsibility & judgement that comes with leadership. ⠀ It’s been a freaking crazy beautiful rollercoaster of epic experiences paired with confusion, trolls & growing pains. ⠀ Anytime you step into your light, darkness will try to take you down. ⠀ Example: @Buzzfeed having nothing better to do than slam Tony Robbins. The man who’s literally dedicated his entire life to helping humans. 🤦🏼♀️That’s shitty media for ya. And guess what? Tony’s a human being. Just like you and me. ⠀ I’m not perfect, but I am forever committed to living in alignment. ⠀ SO, WHAT ARE SOME OF MY TRUTHS? ⠀ I won’t interview someone just because he/she wrote a book/is a celebrity. If he/she is boring or doesn’t bring value to YOU, I won’t record it. ⠀ I won’t post only perfect pics of me in expensive outfits so you think I wear Gucci ‘Like It To Know It’ pants in Paris on my Jet 24/7. I am the most financially abundant I’ve been in my life. But, I won’t lie that I wear Target more than designer lol. ⠀ I won’t chase a meaningless blue icon so you think I’m “popular & cool”. That stupid check mark doesn’t represent my selfless heart, the lives I impact, or my true friendships. My bestfriends don’t give a Cat’s 💩 about my social stats. ⠀ I won’t follow spammy marketing rules, write boring AF copy or outsource my communication with you. I talk to you like a human with a heartbeat, not a robot. ⠀ I won’t show up as a different person when you meet me in person. I take pride in being authentic & exactly who you think I am. I won’t work with brands that I don’t use or trust, no matter the $. I wont share products with you, unless I freaking love it. ⠀ What are YOUR truths, #BabyGrandma? 👇🏻PS DIG MY MUG? 😂
What do you want? Tell me, below! ⚡️FIRST 20 COMMENTS ENTERED TO WIN FREE TICKET TO PAYS TO BE BRAVE ⚡️👇🏻
I DON’T HAVE ALL THE ANSWERS. I’M JUST WILLING TO LOOK MORE STUPID THAN YOU. ⠀ I shared this lil nugget in my recent pod episode (Hold up. Holy Cat’s💩. Did you listen yet, #BabyGrandma? ) ⠀ And I mean it, 💯. I’m not the smartest person in the room. I got all C’s in school. I couldn’t pass a Chem exam to save my life. I quit college 3 credits early. I couldn’t make it into Harvard if I was sleeping w/ the entire admissions team. 😂 I didn’t have connections. I didn’t have a fancy schmancy biz coach or marketing degree. I started this business with an iPhone 4 & $100k of debt. I Googled every single damn business question. I pulled all nighters studying digital marketing & sales, when I should have been studying for my stupid Chemistry exams. ⠀ But, I am the hungriest. I am the most consistent. And I don’t take no for an answer. BUT, most importantly, I am willing to suck and fall FLAT on my face. ⠀ I’m willing to look stupid, start before I’m ready & make a shitload of mistakes in order to go where I want to go. ⠀ Why? ⠀ Because, I know that I must be a student, before I’m a teacher. ⠀ I know that the best resume is practice. And clarity comes from ACTION, not sitting on my booty waiting for shit. ⠀ I know that my first version may suck, before it’s beautiful. And that’s okay. ⠀ Because, I’m just like you. A girl, with crazy insane dreams, putting one foot in front of the other. And I know these dreams aren’t going to come from perfection or always having the answers. ⠀ Want to be so good they can’t ignore you? Then start before you’re ready and be willing to suck. ⠀ SAY IT WITH ME! 👇🏻 ⠀ “I HAVE TO SUCK TO BE AMAZING, ANG!” ⠀ Get your head out of the gutter, Sharon.🍆 ⠀ I’m being hella serious. Show me someone successful who hasn’t failed. To be incredible at anything, you have to start at Day 1, just like everyone else. ⠀ SO, let’s do this damn thang together. 🤦🏼♀️ What are you committing to SUCKING at this week? ⠀ Where in your business are you going to take massive MESSY ACTION? 👇🏻 I WILL GO FIRST! Creating journals for you and publishing my book! #ReadyIsALie (no idea what I’m doing, but I am diving in and going to figure it out 🙂 )
I literally dropped my phone & bawled my eyes out in my kitchen. ⠀ @morgseliz doesn't know this, but she sent me this RIGHT when I was about to fire my team, cancel my event & Google "Application for Sea World Assistant Dolphin Trainer". ⠀ Yes. I'm a freaking human & have those "F ALL OF THIS" days. ⠀ Side Note: Should I still apply to Sea World? Please respond. Thanks, sister. ⠀ This video gives me chills. It was a nudge from the Universe. To think that #PaysToBeBrave was just a “silly idea” in my shower 2 years ago, and now is changing women's lives is NUTS. ⠀ Influencers don't share the unsexy struggles WHILE they are in it, so I am going to share the real 💩 with you. ⠀ My "WHAT IF..." Fear Gremlin: ⠀ “WHAT THE HECK AM I THINKING HOSTING THIS EVENT? WHAT IF I AM NOT READY OR PERFECT? WHY IS THIS COSTING ME $250K? IS THIS STUPID? WHAT IF I AM NOT SMART ENOUGH?” ⠀ The "WHAT IF" Fear Gremlin is a little B. BUT... he's actually healthy. ⠀ Why? 👇🏻 ⠀ 1. It means I CARE. Deeply. It means I give a shit. It means my heart is actually in this. It means I want to give my all to you. It means I can channel nervous energy into creating the most epic experience for you. Ambition & action comes from this energy. 2. It means I am GROWING. I have never grown from being comfortable. Ever. I've only grown when I jumped without a net. I grow every single time I stare my Fear Gremlins in the eye & tell them to take a hike. I grow every single time I do what I am afraid to do. ⠀ Generating over 1 mil in courses? Easy. ⠀ Growing a podcast to top 100? Simple. ⠀ Growing a physical product to 7 fig? I got this. ⠀ Hosting a Live Event? SAVE ME. SEND WINE. SEND @mysoulcbd They take a CRAPLOAD of energy, time & money. BUT. It's also the most fulfilling thing I've ever done. Hugging you in IRL & telling you "THANK YOU” is priceless. ⠀ I'd pay 2x the investment to hear your story and how I can help you. I'd pay anything to know that Pays To Be Brave was a catalyst in your life. So, if Morgan's video touches you, I'd love for you to be in that room. You deserve it. And I'm not quitting on you. So, thank YOU, from the bottom of my heart, for always showing up for me. ⚡️🔥
You don’t know how strong you are until being strong is your only choice. ⠀ No one in the audience knew I was holding back tears. ⠀ They didn’t know that moments before stepping on stage at Pays To Be Brave 2018, I was experiencing one of the most painful, anxious & transformative seasons of my personal life. ⠀ They didn’t know I was ending my engagement with my boyfriend of 4 years. ⠀ I haven’t shared anything about this publicly, but I think I’m ready. My commitment is to share with you the scary-yet-brave moments of my life, so *you* can also find the courage to jump. I mean...we are in this silly game called life together, ya? ⠀ I don’t have all the answers, but I do have my story. And I hope that helps *you*. ⠀ They didn’t know it took every ounce of me to smile & teach on stage, for 48 hours straight. They didn’t know part of me felt numb, while other parts felt hella passionate. ⠀ But, I pulled up my big girl pants, stepped on the stage and poured 💯 of my heart into that room. ⠀ Because that’s what strength is. ⠀ Showing up for those who need you, even when it’s pouring rain & you want to run inside. ⠀ Showing up to a commitment I made for you (my loyal community ), even though it wasn’t convenient or easy. ⠀ 29 years on this 🌎 & ending my relationship with my ex was one of the most heartbreaking, tearful and courageous things I’ve ever endured. Not because he was a horrible boyfriend. Far from it. He is one of the most kind, smart, giving & hardworking men I have ever met. We had a beautiful friendship. He was an amazing person. I will always love him. ⠀ But, he wasn’t *my* person. ⠀ And our relationship was good, but it wasn’t exceptional. And sometimes that’s the greatest sign of bravery. Walking away from good, for great. Walking away from comfortable, for incredible. ⠀ And a promise I made for this life is to feel exceptional, in *all* areas of my life. No wavering on this. But I’ve learned (the hard way ), you can’t have this #Ampersand life, unless you make space for magic. ⠀ I’ve learned that we get what we have the courage to leave (& ask for ). ⠀ Where do you need to make space for magic? 💕🙏👇🏻
WHAT IF...? ⠀ I am OBSESSED with this question. ⠀ Every epic business, product or invention came from a human asking these two powerful words. ⠀ WHAT IF...? ⠀ Since a little girl, these two words have been my permission slip to dream really (really ) big. And I think that’s one of my “secrets”. I give myself PERMISSION to ask the scary as hell questions. I give myself permission to DREAM. ⠀ This question ultimately, changed my entire life. ⠀ Because for a brief moment, I throw away my stupid insecurities and stop blaming my anxiety. For a brief moment, I don’t let my Fear Gremlins scream “WHO THE HECK AM I TO DO THIS?” ⠀ “WHAT IF?” is: Daring to jump, even if you fall flat on your face. ⠀ Daring to be brave, no matter what anyone says about your dream. Daring to step on the stage, no matter how shaky your voice or sweaty your palms. ⠀ And that’s the ultimate sign of courage, love. ⠀ Showing up and stepping forward, when it’s easier to step behind, play small and hide. ⠀ WHAT IF...? 👇🏻 You weren’t afraid to publish the book? ⠀ You were bold and asked for the raise? ⠀ You finally launched the podcast, product or course? ⠀ You left the relationship that is comfortable, but isn’t setting your soul on fire? ⠀ You posted the video that you’re hella nervous to post? ⠀ You didn’t compare yourself to what’s she’s doing online, because you realized how unique you are? ⠀ You became a top female paid speaker and served thousands of women? You focused on exactly what you want and said no to anything that didn’t serve you? ⠀ You launched a podcast that hit thousands of women and became a top ranked show? ⠀ You booked the damn flight and attended the badass event that you knew would change your life? #PaysToBeBrave ⠀ You invested in yourself financially and finally bet on yourself? ⠀ You became an incredible mother AND business owner? ⠀ You became a best selling author and sold thousands of books? ⠀ You said yes to the business opportunity, even though you fear that you’re not “ready”? ⠀ You left your sucky 9-5 job you hate and went full time on your side hustle? You stopped making silly excuses and finally took messy action? ⠀ WHAT IF...? (Let’s hear yours, below! )
WARNING: THIS IS SASSY. 💁♀️ ⠀ “You know, Angela...majority of entrepreneurs fail. You should really just go get a regular job.” ⠀ That was the very last conversation I had with my counselor before I threw my chemistry books into the garbage can & booked ass out of my Dietetics program. ⠀ $109k in debt and HELLA confused, I didn’t know much, but I was certain that my dreams didn't require a stupid degree. ⠀ Dear Butthole Counselor: Quitting college & not listening to your Catpoop advice was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Oh & I make more than your yearly salary, each *month*. #DoYouNeedAJobLinda 😛 ⠀ 6 years ago I quit my fancy schmancy Marketing job on Michigan Ave after discovering I was highly allergic to wearing pants & sitting still in a cubicle. Oh, and my sucky boss, Frank told me that my ideas were “way too creative.” ⠀ Dear Butthole Boss: My “way too creative brain” built two 7 figure companies under 30. #DoYouNeedAJobFrank #SwipeUpToApply 😉 ⠀ Society & family said I was "supposed" to follow the rules. They said to get in line & to stop asking questions. ⠀ I didn't know what I was going to do without a degree, I just knew I was born to lead, not follow. ⠀ I didn't know what the cheeseballs I was going to do without a formal resume, I just knew I would figure it the heck out. ⠀ So... if you're reading this & feeling that 🔥, I know you. ⠀ Because I am you. ⠀ I know what it’s like to wake in the middle of the night with a burning desire to serve and an overwhelming passion to create. I have shared this addicting burn & curiosity since a little girl. ⠀ If this is you, I won't let you miss out on Pays To Be Brave. I just won’t do that to you. ⠀ Friends don't let friends miss out on incredible life experiences or have FOMO. Life too short for that shit. ⠀ I created this 2 day live experience, for YOU. ⠀ The dreamer. The hustler. The go-getter. The fire starter. ⠀ The ambitious woman who wants more out of life. ⠀ The tenacious woman who is ready to finally show up for what she wants in her business. ⠀ The unstoppable woman who is ready to leave comfortable for incredible, and never take no for an answer. ⠀ Is this you? 🔥👇🏻 #PaysToBeBrave
👇🏻🔥 Let’s all share!
(PRESS PLAY ) 🔥 What do I know for sure? When I’m done on this beautiful Earth, I’ll be leaving on E. Like a rocket-ship, I’ll be completely empty from pouring my heart into you. ⠀ What’s my long term vision for my brand? (This 🚀 I am on is about to launch, so this scary question has been heavy on my heart. ) ⠀ Regardless of what happens, I know this one deep certainty. ⠀ I am here to exhaust myself in the pursuit of service. ⠀ I am here to show you what’s possible, when everyone else is saying you’re “dreaming too big”. ⠀ It’s my responsibility to help you. It’s my promise to show up for you. It’s my obsession to not give up on you. It’s my mission to blaze the trail. So you can confidently lead. ⠀ If you are reading this & you have a public platform (blog, show, book, brand, podcast, company ), or a “stage” to speak on, I feel (scratch that ) IT IS your *responsibility* to share your gift. ⠀ If you have ears listening and eyes watching, you have a responsibility. I don’t care how big/small your audience is. It’s a responsibility. ⠀ We forget the unmeasurable + transformational impact we have on our audience/strangers. We play small and hide behind absolutely stupid fears & bullshit excuses. ⠀ The ability to change lives, is the greatest (God given ) gift in this world. Someone is waiting for *exactly* what you have. What a waste to not share this, ya? ⠀ Even if it’s a messy, shaky and imperfect first draft, it’s time to share your story. ⠀ Post it. Press Live. Send it. Publish it (today ). ⠀ You have a responsibility to be integrious, brave, selfless, transparent, consistent, show up with your whole damn heart & give *every* last ounce of 🚀 fuel. ⠀ This gift was given to you. But it’s not *for* you. Go set the world on fire. 🔥 (TAG A BOSS BABE YOU WANT TO GO TO PAYS TO BE BRAVE WITH👇🏻 )#PaysToBeBrave
WHAT WOULD THE MOST BRAVE VERSION OF YOU DO? ⠀ Palms sweating. Heart pumping. Throat tightening. ⠀ 60 seconds before I stepped on stage Sunday, I wanted to puke. ⠀ FAAAACK. I felt amazing the entire morning, and then, at the very last minute, my Fear Gremlins decided to make an appearance. ⠀ The AV guy clipped on my microphone. “You have about 30 seconds, Angie. You ready?” ⠀ GULP. ⠀ I smiled, looked him in the eye & gave him a high five. “I wasn’t born ready. But I’m going to *choose* to be ready.” ⠀ I knew in that moment I had to choose bravery. ⠀ The crazy thing about life is that often times, our greatest God given gifts scare the absolute SHIT out of us. ⠀ And waiting for “ready” is the biggest bullshit lie we’ve ever been told. ⠀ Speaking sets my soul on fire. It makes me feel insanely alive. It’s a beautiful certainty I can’t explain. It feels like home. BUT... ⠀ After speaking professionally hundreds of times, I’m still human and I still feel fear. ⠀ So, what did I do? ⠀ I downed a dropper of @mysoulcbd and asked myself one simple, scary & life changing question. ⠀ “What would the most brave version of you do right now? ⠀ Immediately, I was reminded of my purpose and felt a rush of joy in my veins. ⠀ “She would run onto that stage (like she owned it ), start an epic dance party (like no one is watching ) and pour her heart & soul into every woman in that room. You’d do what you were born to do, Ang.” (And that’s exactly what I did 😉 ) ⠀ Bravery is a choice. Showing up for your gifts is a choice. Taking action, regardless of your fear, is a choice. ⠀ And that, my friend, is what separates the successful from the stagnant. ⠀ The simple decision of choosing courage, in a moment where it’s much easier to choose fear. ⠀ The speech. The course. The company you want to start. The sales call. The scary conversation. The live video. The podcast episode. The job you want to quit. The birthing of a child. The business you want to sell. The book you want to write. The raise you want to ask for. The client you want to pitch. ⠀ What would life look like to show up as the bravest version of you? ⠀ What would SHE do? ROLL CALL! Who’s stoked for #PaysToBeBrave ? 🔥
“Ang...that’s kind of a crazy idea.. you really think you should do it??” ⠀ I have tears as I type this. 😭 ⠀ 10 years ago ($100k in debt + in my 600 sq ft dorm room ) I had this “silly idea” to press post on my very first blog. I had no flippen idea what I was doing. I just knew I rather help my readers than be in a Chemistry class. After a lot of face planting, I generated over 7 figures in digital products, with zero paid Ads or any complicated funnels. Today: I’ve created one of the most engaged, ambitious and epic female entrepreneur audiences. I am deeply grateful to be one of your teachers & am in awe of how we powerfully we show up for each other. This is just the beginning for us. 💛 ⠀ 4 years ago I had this “silly idea” to plug in a mic & launch a podcast. I had no idea what I was doing. I wondered who the hell would even listen to my show. I just knew I had to share my voice and help women. I just felt this (terrifying ) burn in my belly to press record. My Google Search bar became my best friend & business coach. Today: I have a Forbes ranked Top 100 podcast with 6.8 million unique downloads. ⠀ 2 years ago I had this “silly idea” (nakie in my shower ) to create the most badass female personal development + business event in the United States. I had no idea what I was doing or how the heck to host a live event. I just knew I wanted to create what didn't exist. I wanted to cancel the event 100x, but stayed tenacious and hungry to figure it out. Today: 1500 of you incredible women are attending Pays To Be Brave 2019 in October. ⠀ 2 years ago my brother @officialmikelee and I launched @mysoulcbd in my small LA apartment. We labeled & shipped every single order from the kitchen table. We aren’t the smartest humans in the world, but we do hire people smarter than us to help. I didn’t have a fancy business degree (I dropped out of college ), but I did research until I found the answers. We didn’t quit when things got financially scary or stressful. Today: We built a 7 figure brand in under a year and are helping thousands of humans feel less anxious. #tears ⠀ No, your idea isn’t silly or stupid. What *is* silly is not acting on it. 🔥 #ReadyIsALie #PaysToBeBrave
What if life was now, so today is actually the perfect day to start? Ready. Is. A. Lie. #ReadyIsALie
Can we talk about 🍆? EEK! Don’t get awkward, Cheryl. We’re basically besties. And we all do it. ⠀ SALES is about DATING (+SEXY TIME with )your customer. And you know what’s the SEXIEST thing in sales and in a man? (SAY IT WITH ME, LADIES! ) ⠀ CERTAINTY.😉 ⠀ A man who leads and knows exactly what he wants = HAVE MY BABIES. ⠀ A woman who leads with the utmost confidence in her product/service= TAKE MY WALLET. ⠀ So, here’s the dealio...to crush sales, you MUST have the utmost certainty (“THIS IS THE MOST EPIC THING EVER” ) excitement in your voice. Period. ⠀ No questioning. No hesitation. No disbelief. At the end of the day, sales is a transfer of CONFIDENCE. ⠀ Because, real deal... I can teach you my exact 7 figure blueprint to closing sales, but if you aren’t 💯 CONFIDENT in what you’re selling, it 💯 won’t work. 🤦🏼♀️ ⠀ DEAD SERIOUS. It just won’t work, dude. Your passion & energy behind the sale is, EVERYTHING. If you aren’t stoked about your product, Susan (your portentously customer ) isn’t either. ⠀ I taught this (tough love ) sales nugget on stage Saturday at the Impact & Growth Summit and it set my soul on FIYYYAHHH! ⠀ Nothing gets me going more than teaching you how to sell like a queen and feel hella confident in your marketing! 💰 SOME SALES NUGGETS THAT I DROPPED FOR THE AUDIENCE? 👇🏻 1. Enter the conversation already inside your customer’s head. This is a MUST. Meet your customer where they are at. Don’t overcomplicate your messaging. Speak the lingo of your customer. Cut the fluff and speak directly to her pain points. Clarity > creative. ⠀ 2. Empathy is your SUPERPOWER as a saleswoman. The more you genuinely care about your customer’s pain, the easier it is to sell. If you’re highly empathic, you can be a fantastic saleswoman. LISTEN TO YOUR CUSTOMER’S NEEDS/WANTS. Second hottest thing a man can do, ya? ; ) ⠀ 3. Serve, serve & serve some more. If you aren’t making the money you want to be making, it’s time to serve more. More value in a marketplace = more 💰. ⠀ 4. If you’re afraid to sell, you’re not obsessed with your product. Yes. I said it. If you have a gift to share with this world, it’s selfish not to share your solution.💛

I GOT A TATTOO!?😮 ⠀ I was told “having it all,” was only in the movies. ⠀ But, as a little girl who stood on a cardboard box to motivate her stuffed animals (with a toothbrush 🎤 ) & minutes later played Mom w/ Barbies, I’ve *always* wanted it all. ⠀ “Ang, you’re going to have to choose which life you want.”, was ingrained like a tattoo. ⠀ Family & ex boyfriends told me to choose: •A great career OR a great man/marriage. •Helping a lot of people OR making a lot of 💰. •Being an amazing business owner OR being an amazing mom/wife. ⠀ But, I’ve always wanted it all. ⠀ Speaking on stage to 5,000 people & then 5 hours later bringing snacks to my kid’s baseball game. ⠀ Closing a huge business deal at 9am & then surprising my sexy + wicked smart husband with a lunch date by noon. ⠀ Pouring my soul into serving thousands of women & then relaxing in our California beach home (floor to ceiling windows & countless guest rooms for family. ) ⠀ I’ve always wanted it all. ⠀ To selflessly exhaust myself in the pursuit of helping millions of humans + building 7 fig companies, but *also* unwavering in my commitment to have the title of Mom & Wife, first. ⠀ I’ve always wanted it all. ⠀ Creating work that seriously matters in this 🌎. But forever a kid at heart, who never takes life seriously. ⠀ Putting my big girl pants on for a business call, but never missing my daily kitchen dance party blasting rap. ⠀ I’ve always wanted it all. ⠀ Being a highly impactful leader for you. ⠀ But more importantly, the most incredible role model for my little munchkins. ⠀ AND, the #1 cheerleader, partner in all things goofy & best friend to my Superman. ⠀ Do I know what I am doing? Nope. But, maybe the goal isn’t to have all the answers. ⠀ Maybe my life will be about the trivial 5 sec moment each morning when I look at my arm, smile & *decide* to choose abundance. ⠀ I’ve always wanted it all. ⠀ But, as an ambitious woman, I haven’t had a woman to mirror. ⠀ So, maybe this page is my journal of this (imperfect ) pursuit of the Ampersand life. Not just for me...but, For you. The woman who also doesn’t want to choose. So, I can show you. And you can show me. That we CAN (& deserve to ) have it all. 🚀
I SHOULDN’T BE DOING THIS. BUT I AM. ⠀ Here’s the dealio. True friends don’t hide their best money making (+ anti-aging ) secrets, ammmmiiiiright? ⠀ ME ALL DAY: BECKY! GIMME THE DEETS ON THAT ORGANIC COW 💩 DERIVED FACE CREAM, STAT. 💁♀️ #Almost30 #FreakingOutPeople ⠀ SO, Wednesday night I am hosting a FREE LIVE WEBINAR sharing my EXACT step-by-step 7 figure video marketing blueprint. This is the EXACT formula I used for four $250k launches in 12 months. ⠀ And, yo. I suck at math, but that’s 1 mil in online sales, boo. And we all know I spent it on anti-aging face cream from Whole Foods. LOL. I haven’t ever shared this specific monetizing secret before, so I am STOKED to spill the gluten free beans. No one is teaching this ninja formula in the online space. So, why not peel back the curtain and share it with you? ⠀ I tested it for 15+ digital courses/physical product launches. ⠀ My extremely scientific conclusion? IT. FLIPPEN. WORKS. ⠀ I’m giving it all away. No holding back. No strings attached. Just bring your passion & energy. (Warning: My teaching isn’t boring 😛 ). ⠀ I’m sharing this with you because it’s too good to hide. ⠀ The (even ) better news? ⠀ It’s not rocket science. It worked with zero paid Ads. It’s a system you can implement into your online business, RIGHT AWAY. ⠀ You down to hang out LIVE with me at 5pm PST Wednesday night? ⠀ Perfect. It will be fun. I mean, that’s the only way I do life & business 😛. ⠀ BUT HOLD THE PHONE!

5 years ago (while running the lake in Chicago ) I heard The Chalene Show and immediately was hooked. ⠀ I sprinted home (in the snow ), plugged in my Snowball mic and pressed publish on my very first podcast episode. ⠀ ”WHAT THE HECK ARE YOU DOING, ANGIE!? WHO IS GOING TO LISTEN TO THIS?” ⠀ I didn’t know. I just knew (with the utmost certainty ) I needed to START. My voice was shaking, but I thought of the 1 woman I wanted to serve. I shared my heart. I didn’t read reviews because I was terrified of trolls. I took massive (messy & imperfect ) action. ⠀ 6.5 million downloads later (+ a top 100 ranked podcast ), I am forever grateful for @chalenejohnson being the catalyst to launch my show, which ultimately brought me to you. My listeners are my family. 💛 I am also grateful for her unmatched program helping me to generate my first $250k digital product launch, with zero paid ads. ⠀ The truth? I built a 7 fig brand not because of a fancy business degree (didn’t finish college! ), but by mastering the foundations of marketing and being willing to suck, first. ⠀ A catalyst for my business growth, this program lit an unstoppable 🔥 in me to help women make money doing what they love. It changed my business and bank account, forever. Prior to this course, I was making my online marketing EXTREMELY COMPLICATED and was spinning my wheels trying to promote on every social media platform. I didn't know what the CHEESEBALLS a landing page or funnel was. ⠀ It wasn’t until I mastered Chalene’s NINJA video marketing formula that my audience and business absolutely EXPLODED. 🚀 ⠀ And because we are virtual best friends (until I hug you IRL at Pays To Be Brave in October! ), I HAVE to freaking spill the beans. ⠀ Three words. ⠀ MARKETING. IMPACT. ACADEMY. ⠀ I could cry happy tears thinking about how much Marketing Impact Academy will save you from overwhelm & EXPLODE your business, indefinitely. ⠀ And that’s exactly why I am sharing this secret with you. 👇🏻 Want deets on how to get INSTANT ACCESS to MIA (dude... her video marketing formula is INSANE )....and a FREE ticket to my live event, Pays To Be Brave? ⠀ Say “OMG YES ANGIE”, below! 👇🏻
Just. Start. 🚀🔥
MARKETING IS SEX. ⠀ Okay, NOW I got your attention. 🍆 ⠀ Hear me out, boo. Because, your marketing (+ sex life ) has been on my mind 😂😘. ⠀ Beneath all the industry jargon, marketing is analogous to dating/sexy time. I mean, If you ask someone to marry you/(or get in their👖 ) the DAY you meet them, odds are they’re going to say “NO WAY!”. ⠀ Similar, if you ask for the $20-50k sale the minute you jump on a sales call with a client, it’s probably going to be a huge fat “NO”. ⠀ A fault I see in marketing, is brands solely relying on Left Brain metrics. Yes, this is valuable, but it’s missing a critical piece of the puzzle. ⠀ Right brain metrics, baby. ⠀ Marketing is an ART, not a science. Emotions drive customer behavior. Sales decisions are made in the heart, not the head. ⠀ I believe that (effective + sustainable ) marketing is a beautiful relational game, not simply a math equation or highly calculated funnel. Screw numbers. Marketing is EMOTIONS. ⠀ Successful marketing must ask the complex questions about human behavior & what emotionality drives the acquisition & retention of your customer. The focus of marketing should always be on the HUMAN you’re speaking to. ⠀ In dating & marketing we want to be dancing with the other person. It’s a 💃🏼 in which human courtship mirrors the purchasing phases: 👇🏻 Trust. Listening. Empathy. Courting. Attraction. Closing. Honesty. Excitement. ⠀ DAMN. Marketing sounds A LOT like dating. Don’t you agree? ⠀ When we see our copy + funnels through this RELATIONAL lens, it reminds us that marketing is 99% an emotional game. ⠀ How else is marketing similar to dating? 👇🏻 Know what you want. Build trust immediately. Differentiate yourself from the rest. Don’t be cheap. Don’t try to sleep with them right away. Less about you. More about them. Be honest from the get go. Nurturing leads is about getting to know each other aka FOREPLAY IS EVERYTHING. ⠀ If there is a connection, you’ll feel it. ⠀ Leave them wanting more. ⠀ Don’t be afraid to be vulnerable. ⠀ Communication is the glue that holds customer & romantic relationships together. ⠀ Prepare for creeps & stalkers.
“THE GENIUS THING WE DID, IS WE DIDN’T GIVE UP.” ⠀ On an interview last week the host asked me my “#1 secret” to growing a loyal audience, building a brand and scaling to 7 figures in digital + physical products. ⠀ My immediate gut response wasn’t a complicated marketing funnel or a specific lead magnet. That would be a complete bag of bologna to the woman listening. ⠀ Nah. ⠀ My big “secret” is (and will always be ) unwavering grit. I worked more than anyone I knew. Staying up until 3am recording and editing content became my norm. I sacrificed time, a social life & money when they wouldn’t. I hired mentors I couldn’t afford. I went ALL in. ⠀ I haven’t been on this planet too long, but here is what I know for sure: ⠀ It’s not more resources or more skill. It’s not more talent or more knowledge. It’s not somebody I knew or connections. ⠀ Wanna know the un-sexy truth, sister? There will *ALWAYS* be a woman with more talent and more knowledge than you. Always. ⠀ But, no one can take your work ethic and resilience. No one can take your passion, vision, heart & tenacity. So, the “big secret”? ⠀ I just kept going. ⠀ Like a loving marriage, I kept my promise and kept going when it wasn’t sexy, easy or fun. ⠀ Like obsession was my drug, I kept going when I didn’t want to show up, press record and give my best. ⠀ Like a steamy love affair, helping you is *always* on my mind. You drive me to create, share and serve. ⠀ I just kept going. ⠀ I kept going when my college counselor laughed & reminded me “majority of entrepreneurs don’t make it, Angela. Just go get a safe job.” ⠀ I kept going when I was $100k in debt and bawled my eyes out on my kitchen floor feeling completely lost. ⠀ I kept going when the very first business Mike & I built failed and we lost a shit ton of money and time. ⠀ I kept going when an ex boyfriend said my dreams were “way too big” and “who would listen to your show, Ang?” (Um. 6 million, asshole 😘 ). ⠀ So, if you’re reading this, it’s time to stop looking at her. ⠀ And what’s she “has.” ⠀ You have *everything* you need. You always have. And you always will. ⠀ The only secret you need? ⠀ No one can out work you. It’s you vs you. 🔥
What do I know for sure? When I’m done on this beautiful Earth, I’ll be leaving on E. Like a rocket-ship, I’ll be completely empty from pouring my heart into you. 👇🏻 What’s my long term vision for my brand? (This 🚀 I am on is about to launch, so this scary question has been heavy on my heart. ) 👇🏻 Regardless of what happens, I know this one deep certainty. 👇🏻 I am here to exhaust myself in the pursuit of service. . I am here to show you what’s possible, when everyone else is saying you’re “dreaming too big”. 🔥 It’s my responsibility to help you. It’s my promise to show up for you. It’s my obsession to not give up on you. It’s my mission to blaze the trail. So you can confidently lead. . If you are reading this & you have a public platform (blog, show, book, brand, podcast, company ), or a “stage” to speak on, I feel (scratch that ) IT IS your *responsibility* to share your gift. . If you have ears listening and eyes watching, you have a responsibility. I don’t care how big/small your audience is. It’s a responsibility. . We forget the unmeasurable + transformational impact we have on our audience/strangers. We play small and hide behind absolutely stupid fears & bullshit excuses. . The ability to change lives, is the greatest (God given ) gift in this world. Someone is waiting for *exactly* what you have. What a waste to not share this, ya? . Even if it’s a messy, shaky and imperfect first draft, it’s time to share your story. . Post it. Press Live. Send it. Publish it (today ). . You have a responsibility to be integrious, brave, selfless, transparent, consistent, show up with your whole damn heart & give *every* last ounce of 🚀 fuel. . This gift was given to you. But it’s not *for* you. Go set the world on fire. 🔥 🔥 🔥 (TAG A BABE YOU WANT TO GO TO PAYS TO BE BRAVE WITH👇🏻 )
“So, what are you afraid of?” 🙈 When the stranger sitting next to me at Tony Robbins asked me this a few weeks ago, my heart sank. I immediately felt anxiety & fear rush through my veins. I knew my answer, but I was absolutely terrified to say it out loud. I was embarrassed to own this fear. 👇🏻 Gulp. 💛 “I am afraid that I can’t be an incredible entrepreneur, business owner, top paid female speaker AND an impeccable wife and mother. My vision is to be with an epic man (Superman ) who also desires BOTH. I’m absolutely terrified to have it ALL. I am terrified I won’t find someone who wants to be on this insane rollercoaster with me. What type of man do I NEED by my side for this career?” 💛 Just typing this makes me emotional. It’s funny. So many of you see my life and assume I have it “all figured out/easy.” 🤦🏼♀️ Far from it. I am so committed to transparency with you. I am so committed to showing you my fears, so you know aren’t alone. I am so committed to taking you on this journey, with me. 💛 And this is where success begins. A clear decision. A deep certainty. Getting out of the HOW & instead embodying the feelings of what you desire. My new story? (After throwing away this bullshit limiting belief ). 🔥 “I AM one of the highest paid female speakers in the country, I own multiple 7 figure companies AND I am an incredible wife to my husband + mother to my kids. I’m doing it all with flow, fun and ease.” 👇🏻 And so it is. 🔥🙏
Gulp. Can I be hella vulnerable with you? Ok, here I go. 3 years ago I experienced my first full blown #anxiety attack. The attack was so debilitating that I couldn’t drive, eat or sleep. For weeks on end. 🌱 It was hands down the most terrifying moment of my life. A moment that forever changed the trajectory of my health and purpose. 🌱 You know what’s crazy cool about life? I truly believe our deepest pains in life often transform into our PURPOSE. You feel me? 🌱 Doctor after doctor threw heavy RX/drugs at me. “You have chronic anxiety disorder. Take this pill.” Months on end, my brain was racing, I felt outside my body and I couldn’t run my business. Drugs were only making me feel WORSE. Something need to change. 🌱 Determined to find a natural solution, I dove head first into holistic medicine & natural alternatives. 🌱 Every cell in my body said no to drugs & harmful side effects. 🌱 Experiencing debilitating anxiety sparked my passion for finding a natural solution & sparked my empathy for Mental Health. 🌱 After immense research, I discovered the incredible health benefits of #cannabis. This beautiful plant (that I initially was against ), changed my entire life. 🌱 My passion is now to help other women manage anxiety through lifestyle changes + CBD. My brother @officialmikelee also fell in love with CBD for pain management as a professional athlete and we decided to launch a company! Did you hear about @mysoulcbd yet!? 🌱 We are on a heart driven mission to change the game for anxiety, sleep and pain. 🌱 So, what do I take? My favorite from @mysoulcbd is our ORANGE 1500mg! I take 1 dropper before bed every single night. 🙏 I wanna hear from you, sister! Drop me your #CBD q’s below! 👇🏻 PS! WANNA WIN A FREE BOTTLE OF SOUL CBD? Tag 2 friends in this post! Picking 2 peeps!
You don’t need to be perfect, you just need to start. You don’t need to have all the answers, you just need to be resourceful as hell. You don’t need to be the prettiest or the smartest, you just need to show up. 🙏 Hey God, Thank you for giving this small town Midwest girl the bravery to dream (really ) big. ✨ It’s my commitment in this lifetime to keep jumping, no matter how scared. I’ll always jump first to show other women what’s possible. #PaysToBeBrave Tag a woman you admire, below! 👇🏻
At 8 years old my mom walked into my room & found me passionately speaking (using my toothbrush as my microphone & brown box as my stage ) to 100 of my stuffed animals. I was motivating my Barbies to “Be happy and not give up.” Hahahaha! 🤦🏼♀️(Not much has changed, ya?😂 ). 🎤 DO YOU HAVE A SIMILAR STORY FROM CHILDHOOD? TELL ME, BELOW! 👇🏻 Before stepping on stage last night someone behind stage asked: “ANGIE. ARE YOU NERVOUS?” 🦋 “No way. I’m excited. I never feel as at home as I do when I am on stage.” 🦋 That’s the beautiful thing about living in alignment. When it’s your purpose, it feels like home. It feels like oxygen & breathing for the first time. It makes more sense than anything you can put into words. It feels like you’re 💯 alive & there is no sense of time. #FLOWSTATE 🦋 Every time I step on a stage, it’s like coming back HOME. It’s safe. It’s calm. It’s my obsession. My nerves immediately diminish, and my heart is ready to SERVE. 🦋 After my first time speaking to a large audience, I knew. I knew I would dedicate my life to this work. I knew I would use my gift of voice to help women. I knew my soul came home to it’s true purpose. I knew I would help you share your gifts with this world. 🦋 So, when you ask “Angie, how did you find your purpose?” I didn’t. At all. I kept following the butterflies (no matter how terrified ), making (a lot of ) mistakes , crashing into fear —— and my purpose found me. 🦋 I was given this clear message at a young age and it’s my promise to fulfill this mission & help YOU do the same. 🦋 It’s been a terrifying ride, but I am committed to the rollercoaster. I am committed to going first (even when my hands are shaking ), so YOU can find the courage to JUMP. I am committed to crashing into fear, so you can see what’s possible for YOU. 👇🏻 SO, IT’S YOUR TURN, LOVE. I want to hear from you. 👇🏻 What gives YOU the butterflies? And if you’re attending PAYS TO BE BRAVE 2019, say hi below! 🔥 #PaysToBeBrave
“Just so you know, Angela, majority of entrepreneurs fail. You may want to get a safe job.” 👇🏻 “Good thing I am not most people.” 👇🏻 Those were my last words to my counselor as I walked into her office and signed the papers to drop out of college. 👇🏻 I have chills as I write this. 👇🏻 11 years ago today, I started a blog in my 600sq feet college dorm room. “This may be a stupid idea, but I’m going to go for it.” (How every great idea begins, ya? ) 🔥 I didn’t know what the hell I was doing, I just knew I was passionate to serve. I didn’t have all of the answers, but I knew how to use a Google Search Bar. I wasn’t the smartest, but I was the most determined to find the answers. 🔥 I didn’t have all the resources, but I was the hungriest. I was born to share my voice. That’s all I knew for sure. 👇🏻 I woke up every single day before class to write & record videos. I studied digital marketing until I figured out how to monetize. I put my head down and created content like it was my job. . Creating content and building my personal brand became my *obsession*. 🔥 I failed more times than I can count. I bawled my eyes out on the floor and wanted to give up 86665x. I was $100k debt from student loans. I’ve lost a ton of money. I’ve made a ton of money. My family and friends thought I was insane. I dropped out of college to launch a 3rd start up. I sacrificed my social life to build my brand. 🔥 The entrepreneur bug bit me (hard ), so I had no choice. My heart kept leading the way. I knew I had to pave my own path. I knew I couldn’t follow the rules. I remember editing videos exhausted at 3am & during Chemisty tests. I failed the tests, but my gut knew what I was building would pay off. 🔥 I knew if I bet on myself it would pay off. And that’s my reminder for you today, love. 👇🏻 If you’re feeling stuck and want to give up, I feel you. I was you. I am you. And I won’t let you give up. Not today. The miracle often happens right when you’re about to give up. 👇🏻 And when you bet on yourself, it always pays off.
Ok, homie! We’re in an elevator and I have to give you 3 SECRETS TO GROW YOUR INSTAGRAM. 👇🏻 WHAT THE CHEESEBALLS DO I SAY? 🔥 1 - Know who the heck you are speaking to. This. Is. Everything. What woman needs your help? What keeps her up at night? How are you her SOLUTION? Every single post and story should be INTENTIONALLY speaking to HER. Solve your avatar’s problem like it’s your job, because it is. Your job isn’t to speak to everyone. If you try, your voice dilutes. Focus on sharing EDUCATIONAL content that speaks to her specific pain points. WHO ARE YOU SPEAKING TO? The more specific, the better. If you’re feeling creative blocks, 9/10 you don’t know who you’re speaking to. 🔥 2- RESPOND to all comments and DM's. YUP. GASP. I said it. Yes it takes a lot of time. No, it isn’t sexy. Unless you are Beyoncé or a massive influencer, it’s time to put in the work. IG and building a loyal audience is a RELATIONAL GAME. 💯. It’s the only game I’ve ever played and it ALWAYS pays off. Take the time to engage + NURTURE your audience like they are family. No matter how small your audience, this is your job. Your job is to create authentic connections & help solve problems. Building this trust = THE secret to sustainable sales & brand growth. Engage. Engage. Engage some more. Are you treating your audience like they are your bffs? 🔥 3- PUT YOUR BLINDERS ON. If you’re an ADD entrepreneur who suffers from comparisonitis, it’s time to UNFOLLOW anyone who’s blocking your creative flow. I unfollow anyone in my similar space/niche. Yup. I want to be different. And I know you do, too. The ONLY WAY to stand out is to stop watching your “competition”. I want you to create space to find YOUR voice. Not Susan’s. Stay in your own lane & focus your energy on CREATING. I give a cat’s butthole about how other women start their podcasts/what their posts say/what she’s selling/how she does her stories etc. If you’re running in a race and stare at the other runners, you’ll never win. It’s time to spend your precious energy CREATING not consuming. 👇🏻 Let’s hear it, boo! Which of these is the hardest for you? Comment and let’s chat. YES. ACTUALLY CHAT. 😛
Other than The Angie Lee Show (duh, boo ), what are some of your fav shows + WHY!?🔥👇🏻🎙
Wanna geek out with me for a sec? #LetsTalkNerdy 🤓 I truly believe the next wave of natural medicine will involve addressing light, the gut, and SLEEP more comprehensively. 😜 Side note = I am 💯 a sleep snob + a #BabyGrandma + a #Biohacking nerd. Are you? 👇🏻 So what’s the DEAL with #bluelightblockingglasses ? Until recently, humans were mostly exposed to natural light during the day and darkness at night. But now we're constantly bathing in artificial light, most of it blue. Too much exposure to blue light at night suppresses the secretion of #melatonin, a hormone that regulates sleep cycles. #NotCool 💛 The real deal? I notice a huge difference in my sleep and my #cortisol patters when I regularly wear blue light blocking glasses at night! Aka, I wake up feeling more refreshed, energetic & clear headed. I wear them while watching tv, on my laptop and on my phone! 💛 Thank you @klassynetwork for making the most adorable + effective glasses! Enjoy code “ANGIELEE” on Natalie’s shop to save 💰!
