Mastermind Coming in 2018…Apply to Join Now!

Mastermind Coming in 2018…Apply to Join Now!

You are the average of the five people that you surround yourself with. #truth

Wouldn’t it be freaking awesome if you had a group of girl bosses you could turn to whenever you had a question or needed advice about your biz?

What if they also held you accountable for reaching your crazy outrageous goals and helped you brainstorm new ideas as well as make big decisions?

Sounds amazing right?

It IS. And it’s not too good to be true! It’s called a mastermind.

Napoleon Hill writes about the ‘Power of the Master Mind’ in his book Think and Grow Rich (have you read it?! You should!!).

He defines a Master Mind as:

The coordination of knowledge and effort of two or more people, who work toward a definite purpose, in the spirit of harmony.” 

He explains how powerful it is to surround yourself with intelligent people and how you should work with those people to get where you want to go faster!

In the book, he also explained how Andrew Carnegie was consciously using masterminds and attributed his entire fortune to the knowledge & expertise he got from his mastermind.

A killer mastermind should have:

  • A leader
  • Commitment from the members (made stronger with some skin in the game)
  • Regular agenda with hot seats
  • Group feedback

The size of the group varies, but typically 6-10 people is ideal to make it easier to get through meetings.

Meetings can be weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly, depending on the mastermind.

Accountability is a huge part of the mastermind. We ALL need some kind of accountability, like staying off of Facebook during biz hours or staying with a consistent content schedule. There’s nothing worse than coming to the group and saying you didn’t do what you promised to do because you were scrolling your IG feed!

Like attracts like…when you surround yourself with big dreamers, it totally rubs off on you. That energy and focus can be unreal!!

Support is everything.

Being an entrepreneur can be hella lonely. I can literally stay at home all day (for days at a time) barely seeing other humans. No colleagues to have a coffee break with….and let’s face it, it’s hard to explain your marketing plan to friends and family who aren’t in business for themselves.

Masterminds are the perfect place to get that support and comradery! Learning from others is so helpful!

Imagine that you get to learn from the leader of the mastermind and all of their secrets that they’ve had to build their biz…and you also get to learn from all of the other members of the group. Best resources to blog with? How to hire a VA? Strategies to come up with an opt-in?

Someone in the group has probably done it and can work together to help each other out.

Sick of trying to do this whole entrepreneur thing all by yourself?

GIRL…you need a mastermind.

How do I define my mastermind?

 

An amazing community of purpose-driven entrepreneurs ready to create MASSIVE results in their businesses and lives.

I have so many women come to me asking me how I was able to start my new biz, launch a program, create a massive following on social media…so I decided to take just a select few group of women under my wing and start a mastermind group.

We are going to be working together with a small group of other girl bosses to build a solid biz foundation that’s generating new leads daily, even come up with a new product offer, test launch a new product…the possibilities are endless =)

 

In just the past 3 months I’ve launched a new website that’s already getting cold traffic from Pinterest (1,000/month-sweet!), pre-sold 2 new programs, created 6 new opt-ins, and have grown my email list (by the thousands)…and I can show you how to do the same.

 

Imagine….if just a few months from now you had total clarity about your offer, you had hundreds of new leads in your pipeline, and people dying to be a part of your new program offer. #itspossible 

 

I’m super pumped that I’m putting together a mastermind this January for high performers who are looking to achieve greatness in 2018! I’m looking for 10 amazing women to take under my wing and show them step by step how to build a successful online business.

You will learn:

  • How to create influence on social media
  • Build an email list
  • Pre-launch products (aka get money in the bank before you even HAVE a product)
  • Use Pinterest and content creation to automate lead generation
  • Set up automated systems so you can make sales on autopilot
….and a lot more =)

She has helped hundreds of online coaches in the health, wellness, & network marketing field, turn their social media into sales and launch their online business.

The Ultimate Guide to Repurposing Content on Pinterest

The Ultimate Guide to Repurposing Content on Pinterest

Get my 10 Pinterest hacks that increased my traffic by 34,000/month! Click the button below to grab my free cheat sheet!

Want to learn how to work smarter by repurposing content? In this post, I’ll share with you 10 different ways I use 1 piece of content!

If you’ve been following my blog for some time now, you know that I’m obsessed with creating content.

Content is THE #1 thing that changed my business.

I used to just post on Facebook and Instagram and sometimes throw a blog post up….

But when I committed to creating in-depth, super helpful content every single week, my biz really started to take off.

Creating quality content can take a long time, especially if it’s the stuff that I’m teaching here, which is knock your socks off content that makes cold traffic want to stick around and see how else they can learn from you! 

Since it takes so much time creating these epic blog posts, I wanted to make the most of my time and started repurposing my content.

This is how people can see me on almost every social media platform! It just started with 1 piece of content that I’ve repurposed into several different platforms.

Want the video version of this post? Scroll down to the bottom =)

What is repurposing content?

Essentially, it’s taking something that you’ve already created (like a blog post), and turning it into something else (like a video).

In this post, I’ll go super in depth with the different ways that I repurpose my content.

Benefits of repurposing content

Why should you repurpose your content? Repurposing content can:

 

  • Increase your social reach! Instead of just being a blogger, you can turn a blog into a youtube video, a Facebook live, an Instagram post, etc! So you can be found on all of these different platforms instead of just your blog! Repurposing a blog post into a Facebook live video can increase your engagement by 62%!!
  • Help you gain authority in your niche! When people start seeing your name/brand on multiple different platforms, they start seeing you as an authority in your niche.
  • Boost your SEO ranking. Linking back to your site helps increase your SEO rankings, plus more content means you have more opportunities to receive backlinks.
  • Get your main points across. Repetition is the mother of skill! Sometimes people need to read, hear, or watch something for it to really sink in. By providing content in multiple formats, you’re helping your audience really learn your key points.

Repurposing Content: What kinds of content should you repurpose?

I don’t think every single piece of content should be repurposed, but if it’s evergreen (aka timeless), a popular post, content that’s getting a lot of engagement already, or content you can expand on, repurpose it!

An example is a blog post that I did that went viral on Pinterest. As of this writing, it’s been repinned over 80,000 times!

I decided to create a youtube video to go with it, and yup, the video is doing well on Youtube too having been viewed over 10,000 times in two months!

So if you have something that’s getting tons of engagement, ask yourself: how else can I use this content?

Repurposing Content: How should you do it?

I’m going to share with you my strategies for repurposing content…it may seem like a ton of work, but really it’s not! Creating the first piece of content is really the hardest part, then the rest is easy peasy! 

Repurposing Content Idea 1: Blog Post

Every week I create a blog post (like this one).

I sit down and write out a helpful post (for each of my businesses). If you need help creating content and want to know step by step how I come up with content like this blog, this is a great post to help you do that.

If you haven’t committed to writing consistent content, dude, it’s time to start. Your audience needs to know that they can count on you, and that comes from showing up regularly!

Repurposing Content Idea 2: Medium.com

Then I upload the blog to medium.com. Medium is a great site where you can connect with other bloggers and get your content found! You can follow me on Medium here.

This step literally takes 5 minutes and can be a great way to get more eyeballs on your content.

Repurposing Content Idea 3: Pinterest Graphics

I also create several different graphics for the post that I then share on Pinterest.

Yes, I also have a blog post on how to create rocking Pinterest images that convert, and you can check that out here.

I made four different graphics for this blog post, you can see those below.

Repurposing Content Idea 4: Youtube Video

I take the outline from the blog post and create a video that I send off to my video editor. I save the Youtube video my editor sends me and upload it (with the right keywords and titles so it ranks on Youtube—that’s a whole other post lol). I also embed it in the blog post.

If the blog post is getting a ton of traction, sometimes I save that video and use it as a content upgrade so I can give people the video in exchange for their email address.

What’s a content upgrade?

Essentially, it’s a way that you can upgrade your post and collect email addresses. So a video or cheat sheet that dives deeper into the topic of the post could be a great content upgrade. You can see an example of a content upgrade I did in this post here.

Repurposing Content Idea 5: Facebook Live

I take the same content and go live on Facebook. If you want to, you can skip creating the youtube video and just go live and repurpose that Facebook live video on Youtube, but since I’m building up my Youtube channel right now I’m focused on creating content specifically for Youtube. 

I essentially take the same outline from the video I created for Youtube, and use that to go live. Live video is where it’s AT on Facebook right now, so be sure you’re taking advantage of that feature, and of the content that you’ve already created!

Repurposing Content Idea 6: Facebook & Instagram Posts

Then, I take bullet points from the blog post and turn them into Instagram and Facebook posts.

If I cover 6 bullet points in my blog post about how to crush it on Pinterest, I can turn that into 6 Facebook or Instagram posts! Just create a square image in Canva so you can share it on Instagram and Facebook. The post below was just one of the tips I mentioned in this epic blog post. 

Repurposing Content Idea 7: SHARE everywhere, especially Pinterest!

I use Social Warfare to share the blog post on all social platforms, especially Pinterest, with my description and a call to action. Yes, I cover how to do that in my free cheat sheet =)

Then, I share the Pinterest graphics with my group boards and Tailwind Tribes. Like I shared above, I’ve created several different graphics for this one blog post, so I can upload a picture/day to each of my boards and tribes.

Repurposing Content Idea 8: Freebie, eBook, or eCourse

If it’s content that is really resonating with my audience, I’ll either turn it into a freebie (put the blog post into a pretty PDF) on my site, or I’ve even turned several blog posts in a series into an eBook that I’ve gone on to sell.

Obviously, the eBook was way more than just the blog posts, but it gave me a great base to work from, and I knew my audience would eat it up (they did, they crashed my site the day it launched).

I’ve done the same thing with my course, Pin with Purpose. You might find similar content on my blog, but you won’t see the entire system unless you’re inside of the course. Think of it like the blog posts are going to give you quick wins, and account for 10% of what someone needs to know to have success with Pinterest. The course? That’s the whole shebang bang and it’s everrrrrything someone needs to know to crush it on Pinterest, from start to finish.

Repurposing Content Idea 9: Webinar

I’ve taken several of my popular blog posts and turned them into a webinar, where I could teach and then sell my next program or product.

All you need to do is take the main points from your blog post and put them on your slides, with an introduction at the beginning and your pitch at the end. #boom

Repurposing Content Idea 10: Email your list

Are you ever lost on what to send to your list?

Just because someone is on your email list, doesn’t mean that they read every single blog post you make.

So send them an email and let them know what the post is all about. I typically will email my list with a brief snapshot about what the post is all about, then provide the link to the blog and also the link to where they can pin it (which increases my traffic on Pinterest!).

I know this probably sounds like a LOT, but I swear once you get into the workflow, it’s really not!

I have a designated day for each task and have created smart systems to make this way easier!

Also, you can totally add an audio element to this, like upload the content to a podcast…I just haven’t done that yet. Should I create a podcast? Would you listen?

Girl Boss Gift Guide: 20 Awesome Gift Ideas for the Work at Home Mom

Want to learn my 10 Pinterest hacks that increased my Traffic by 34,000/Month? Click the button below to get my free cheat sheet!

Hey hey! Are you looking for a girl boss gift guide to pass on to someone as a *hint hint*? Or are you shopping for a fellow girl boss?

I’ve been working from home since I was 23…and became a work at home mom 4 years ago. I’ve worked with a child on my boob (true story), the couch, the kitchen table, and now a proper office desk #finally

Along the way, I’ve come across some awesome tools that have made life as a work at home mom easier.

If you’re a work at home mom, you know the struggle is REAL when it comes to balancing your business with family life AND actually taking care of yourself…so in this gift guide, I’ve included some self-care products I love too.

You’ll be able to give more to others when you take care of yourself first!

Here’s my full list…all the things I LOVE and think they’d make great gifts for the work at home mom!

 

Girl Boss Gift Guide: Planning Essentials

I live for a good planner! Kidding, kind of! But I’ve gone through a TON of planners…here are the ones that I’ve actually stuck with.

Girl Boss Gift Guide: Health/Fitness Stuff

Did you know that my first business is actually as a health and fitness coach? I lost 80 pounds after I had my son, am featured in a top infomercial, and have literally coached thousands of women to lose weight and ditch the diets. There are a few different ways that you can still work with me in my fitness biz, and you can check them out here.

I included the BEST blender ever on this list because it’s so good for making smoothies, superfood shakes, and even soup! I bought ours in 2010 and it’s STILL amazing. So yes, it’s an investment, but think of all the money I would’ve spent on cheap blenders since 2010! They used to break every year! Also, I included a stability ball instead of a stability ball chair because I honestly don’t love my stability ball chair. The ball that came with it is made for a 4-year-old (not my 6’1” self). I just bought the stability ball here and use it as my chair.

Oh, and the bike! TJ LOVES the bike! I ride him to school on it and we get stopped all the time asking where we got it…Amazon, baby! It’s so cool!

Girl Boss Gift Guide: Self-Care

Girl, you need to take care of yourself! L’Occitane en Provence is the besssst stuff from one of my fave places in the world (South of France).

Also, the sleep mask is one of the best things in the entire world. It really helps me sleep and blocks out noise and light. And the pillowcase is just something small that makes me feel a bit luxurious =)

Girl Boss Gift Guide: Cute Girl Boss Gifts

Girl Boss Gift Guide: Anything Related to Coffee or Tea

Um, I live on coffee. Ok not really, but I loooove it. And anything having to do with coffee or cappuccinos. I am obsessed with cappuccinos! So I included two cappuccino machines, one for the budget and one mac daddy. And in an effort to not drink so much darn coffee, I sometimes drink tea. So I included a tea set too =)

Girl Boss Gift Guide: Ditto for wine (if she’s anything like me!)

Girl Boss Gift Guide: Amazing Headphones

My headphones = life! I’m using them right now! My faves are the Beats by Dre. Music always gives me more energy to both workout and stay focused on my work!

Girl Boss Gift Guide: Books

You better believe I’ve included some books here! I love to read! Here are some of my all-time favorites!

Girl Boss Gift Guide: Office Stuff

I def suggest a standing desk–otherwise, it’s so easy to be sitting ALL THE TIME hustling to get ish done! I know you! Get a standing desk so you get more movement throughout the day! And of course, I’m all about Apple everything, and the MacBook Pro is amazeballs (what I’m using now).

Girl Boss Gift Guide: Photo/Video Accessories

I’ve really upped my Youtube game this year…(my two channels are here and here) and here are some of the products I use. The camera lens is great if you’re recording in a small space and you want the camera to appear further away. And the lighting–lighting is everything! This is a super small and cheap solution to get great lighting for videos.

Girl Boss Gift Guide: Gift Cards

Girl Boss Gift Guide: Services

When you’re trying to do ALL THE THINGS, it’s so hard to actually get work done. Consider some of the following services for the girl boss.

 

  • House cleaning service.
  • Child care services for a girls night or date night.
  • Gift Certificate for a salon service or massage.
  • A virtual assistant for her busy growing business.
  • A gift card to her favorite store.
  • Photoshoot

Girl Boss Gift Guide: eCourses

I was given The Copy Cure for Christmas one year…and it was such a great course! I LOVED getting this gift because I didn’t want to invest the money at the moment, but I needed the material like WOAH. So good.

The Copy Cure–Marie Forleo is amazeballs and one of my fave entrepreneurs to learn from. The Copy Cure will help you learn copywriting in a super fun way.

Pin with Purpose–Shameless plug for my own course, Pin with Purpose. In this course, I teach you how to use Pinterest to explode your traffic and your biz! 

Girl Boss Gift Guide: Conference Tickets

Buying a conference ticket for someone would be an amazing gift, especially if they have been talking about it! Conferences are amazing–nothing can replace the connections you make and the impact of attending a live conference!

Here are my favorites:

Social Media Marketing World — all levels of people working online. Great learning experience if you’re in the social media space!

Unleash the Power Within–Tony Robbins has totally changed my life and the way I look at the world. His events do NOT disappoint. At UPW you literally walk on FIRE. I still talk and mastermind with the people I’ve met at his events!

Holy moly! Ok, that was a LOT. It took me forever to put together lol! Do you have anything that you would add? What do YOU want from this list??
