The Way Small Actions Lead To A Big Impact

It’s Giving Tuesday ya’ll! One of my FAVORITE times of the year! *cue the confetti because it’s going to be a party up in hurr* If you’re not familiar with it, Giving Tuesday is the Tuesday after Thanksgiving that promotes a day of charitable giving. 

JD and I are involved with a few charities and one of those is Austin Angels. Austin Angels is an organization that walks alongside children in the foster care system and their families. 

Recently, I had an opportunity to speak to each of the national chapters of the Angel organization about using social media to connect caring and amazing donors to children who need help within the foster care system. I’m EXCITED to share the Q&A that I had with them and hope you feel inspired listening to it. 

Are you ready for a business meets lifestyle conversation? I’m talking all things social tips, business tricks and a personal glimpse into my life as an entrepreneur. I even get into how JD & I decided on adoption! 

If you take one thing away from this episode I hope it’s this: 

>>Don’t be afraid to bring people in on your journey.<< 

I love sharing my story with YOU boo! But I know the hesitation going into it *trust me this introvert gets it* It might be painstaking for you to get in front of the camera or let strangers in personally through a caption. But we all have a story to share! And you never know who yours is going to reach or what you can invite them in on!  

So friends, I hope you enjoy the journey I share in this podcast. If you would like to share this episode, read the show notes here:

The Thanksgiving Gratitude Practice No One Is Talking About

Ya’ll know that Norman Rockwell painting of the classy family around the Thanksgiving table? The one where the mom is holding a perfectly golden turkey and the dad is dressed in a suit beaming with pride. 

Growing up I went into every Thanksgiving with that picture in mind and let’s just say my family is known to have frozen turkey and clothing is optional. We are not your all American family. 

While our dinners never looked like what I imagined, I've learned to find gratitude in the mess of it all because that's the trick. 

>>The key to finding happiness is gratitude.<<

There’s always something to be thankful for. Boo, I hope you make time to find beauty in everything.

So let’s simply take a moment to realize just how blessed we are today. If you want to hear more about my crazy family Thanksgivings and learn to find happiness through gratitude then take a listen! 

If you'd like to read the show notes for this episode, you can do so here: Happy Thanksgiving to you, friend!

Have you ever wondered how to take better photos for Instagram? *I see you nodding your head, boo!*  

You’ve written an engaging caption but now it’s time to focus on taking a gripping photo that makes someone stop scrolling on their feed. 

You might be thinking: “I’m too afraid to start posting on Instagram because my life is far from Instagram-worthy.

Let me tell ya Buttercup, there’s no secret or code to starting, and even the most successful people’s lives are anything BUT Instagrammable . Even the best photographers are still figuring it out as they go!

I mean heck, I jumped into the photography business not even owning a camera! I could tell you ALLLLLLL the stories of people who tore me to shreds about what I was doing wrong. But I stuck a flag in the ground and claimed this is who I am. *I want to see you do the same.* 

If you’re ready to find your confidence and take a boss picture that not only looks good to you but to your audience, grab your camera and click play. 

I’m flexing my photography muscles and giving you my top tips for taking Instagram photos:

  • Good Lighting 
  • The Rule of Thirds

How To Follow Your Dreams Without The Fear of Regret

Why is it that you so believe the message SHOOT FOR THE STARS and YOU CAN DO ANYTHING YOU PUT YOUR MIND TO when you’re a kid but as an adult you hide in the corner belittling your ability. *Boo boo, lock me up because I’m guilty as charged.* 

Let’s throw that negative mindset out like those stanky old sneakers sitting in your closet.

I don’t want to catch you quietly dreaming but not taking action because of fear, doubt, or any of the arsenal of excuses you have lined up waiting to shoot at me. *I ain’t going to hear them!* 

That wild dream is longing to get out! So Buttercup, step out into your purpose. You have a special gift that only YOU can provide to this world.

You aren’t guaranteed tomorrow, heck you’re not even guaranteed the next minute. That fact alone is enough to make me get out of bed each morning with some big gangster hoop earrings and take action. 

>>Do it scared because if you don’t, you’re robbing the universe of the thing that  you’ve been put here to do.<<

So let’s go back to being those kids on the school playground who dreamed big and believed they could do anything they put their mind to! 

One day you'll look back and see how far you've come…. Remembering this right here was the moment that changed everything. So if you want to step into who you were made to be and continue to be inspired grab those headphones and listen to this episode.

Coaching Session | Pivoting Your Business As Your Passion Changes

We all know that change is inevitable. I mean, 15 years ago I was on track to become a lawyer! Could you imagine where all of us would be NOW? You’d be listening to someone else’s podcast…. Or maybe still mine but it would be a whooooole different ball game. 

In today’s podcast, we’re talking about PIVOTING your business with your passions.

Maybe you are in the midst of that change now or maybe it is on the horizon *whether or not you can see it yet!*. Pivoting can look both big (like,you’re completely changing your career to something else entirely) or small (like staying within your industry but changing what service you are focusing on).

So what are you going to do when that change comes?

Here’s the thing, boo boo: I want you to EMBRACE the change! I never want you reaching a wall and thinking, Is this it?

I don’t want you feeling stuck like that gum on the bottom of your shoe! I want to dare you to dream, to dream big for your business and for yourself.

So listen if you’re ready to transition yourself and learn: 

  • How to find what only YOU were made to do
  • How to shift your messaging and communicate change to your followers
  • How to provide a clear transformation for your community 
  • How to become an authority to your audience
  • How to incite FOMO (the fear of missing out) online

>> What you do should fire you up and give you life! << 

So take it one step at a time… and be unafraid to DREAM BIG!

Turn Procrastination Into Your Purpose

Where my procrastination friends at? You raising your hand or did you already hop off this podcast platform and start looking up dog videos? *you know that’s my kryptonite* 

You are not alone. Every single one of us procrastinate to some capacity. But here’s the thing... 

>>Procrastination is the highest form of selfishness.<<

Yeah I said it, and I’m not backing down boo boo! Every minute you waste is robbing others from your greatest purpose. It’s robbing your friends, your partner, your children, your community.  It’s robbing the people you are intended to serve.

And if you’re thinking “I don’t procrastinate, I’m just a perfectionist waiting for the right moment”.  I want to hit you in the face with this quote:

>>“Perfection is just procrastination in disguise”<<

Perfect doesn’t exist Buttercup. You’re just wasting valuable time. All the time you wait trying to make something perfect is you not putting yourself or your product into this world. You will not know how to make your product or service better until you take it out to market. So stop robbing others of what you could be serving them with! 

If you’re ready to take your messy self and quit making excuses and quit getting side tracked scrolling through instagram or reading the latest celebrity gossip in US Weekly... *yes I’m guilty of this too* … then listen to this podcast and read the show notes here;

Everyone struggles with imposter syndrome, the feeling that we aren’t good enough,  in some way or another. *I’m right there with ya!* Symptoms of imposter syndrome include asking yourself: Who am I to do this when there are other people more qualified, richer, better looking, funnier, whittier and more popular?

Instead of saying “Who am I?” I challenge you to ask yourself WHO AM I NOT?

  • Speak with a level of authority when you feel as timid as a mouse 
  • Find *and thrive in* your place of power 
  • Thank the haters *that’s right!*
  • Do it scared because choosing fear is the ticket to growth 

So if you want to overcome the imposter syndrome, choose to be scared and grow your business instead of spinning on the hamster wheel of despair, then give this episode a listen and turn the volume up full blast! And if you want a little extra magic, I’ve provided a mindset shifting exercise for you to do >>HERE<< and feel free to read the show notes >>HERE!<<

Social Media Mastery | Interview On The Ed Mylett Show

There’s this beast that we all face on a daily basis... It’s one that’s always changing and leaves you confused and wanting to curl up crying on your bathroom floor. That beast... SOCIAL MEDIA.  

If you’re ready to get inside my head [*warning* that’s a scary place, trust me] and find out everything I know about social media then you’re in the right place! I spill it ALL in this interview with my sweet friend, Ed Mylett. 

In this episode, I’m going to teach you how to:

  • Use consistency to build a reputation with your followers and [*bonus*] track what type of posts hit better with your audience so you can double down on them
  • Create content that gets into your ideal client’s psyche because any time a consumer looks at a piece of content that feels like it's tailor made for them, they will follow, they will spend more, they will wait more, and they will support more. 
  • Navigate conversations online to show value to your followers and build your tribe  
  • Post the same content across multiple platforms so you come across authentic and foster conversations 
  • Find what hashtags your consumers are inclined to look for so you can build your following  
  • Choose a bio and bio photo to truly capture your identity  
  • Invest in yourself, own that you are enough, and step into your purpose so you can better invest in others 

Boo, I want you to know that your social media is a reflection of you. YOU decide what your style is, what photos you use, what copy you write, who you’re doing this for, and how you engage.

You are in the driver’s seat so let’s take control and make it something you are proud of!

The Secret To Growing On Instagram | Pays To Be Brave Keynote

What if I were to tell you the secret to Instagram is to stop growing? Hold up, put that car in reverse and back it up.  

Did I lose you already? Or are you still with me? 

You better still be with me, because boo this is going to radically change your world. 

Let’s get on the same page here. We think growing our Instagram will solve our monetization struggles. It only makes sense right? More followers equals more money? But my question to you is: 

>>Are you converting your followers to customers?<<

Because if you don't know how to create customers on Instagram, getting more followers ISN'T the answer... They are just going to sit there like that pile of laundry from over the weekend you still haven’t gotten to. *Who am I kidding, I don't do the laundry!*

The Story of Jasmine + JD featuring Amy Porterfield

One of my favorite questions I often receive is, "What is it like to work with your husband?" Ya’ll know that he is the true conductor to this party train! I would go off the tracks without him.  

I am #blessed with a partner who believes wholeheartedly in me both in our personal and business lives! We dream with each other, push each other, support each other and there’s no one else I’d rather do it with.    

So when we decided to dedicate an Episode to our relationship you know I had to bring out the big guns to interview us and who better to do that than THE Amy Porterfield!  

I hope you are ready for some straight up vulnerability because you guys are going to hear it all.

  • What roles we play in both our personal and work lives

Coaching Session | How To Price Your Services, Increase Membership Retention + Add A New Revenue Stream

Friend, what are your burning business questions? I know you’ve got ‘em!

  • Are you trying to figure out how to price your services?
  • Is your product just not hitting right? 
  • Do you have a retention plan for your current customers? 
  • Do you have a product that’s not performing as well as you’d hoped, and you aren’t sure if you should scrap it and start over - or tweak it to make it more irresistible?

In our second episode, join the party as we dive into questions from three business owners just like YOU! 

We cover everything from pricing, to membership, and the scarcity mindset we may feel when removing a revenue source from our business that is no longer  serving us.

The biggest lesson I want you to take away from this coaching session is to remember that it takes just as much energy to have a negative mindset as it does to live in abundance.

We are on this journey together, boo! If you're struggling with shifting your mindset, I would love to invite you to download my free mindset makeover workbook >>HERE!<<
