  • 7 Ways to Be Grateful Every Day

    “This is a wonderful day. I have never seen this one before.” ~Maya Angelou Over the past few decades, a lot of research has gone into the effects of gratitude on the brain.  Some suggest that it can decrease the impact of anxiety and depression. It can also improve the overall outlook that one has on their life.  With such a huge impact gratitude can have, it's no wonder why people are looking for ways to express gratitude more often. 7 ways to be more grateful. At the end of a day think of all the things that you are grateful for. At the end of a long day, it is easy to just want to fall asleep.  During this time try to at least for a few minutes think about what happened in the day and what was good about it. Did you have a delicious coffee, a hot shower, no issues at work, a hot meal. Even when you have had a horrible day can you find at least one thing to be grateful for. Maybe a roof over your head or the warm blankets you are snuggled into. Write a thank you note to someone. Even if you are just writing the thank you note for something small, it's good to let others know you appreciate what they have done. Show appreciation to others by saying thank you (Be specific). This kind of goes along with the one above, letting others know that you are grateful for what they have done. But, this can be more instantaneous for an in the moment thank you. For example when I have to make a call I thank the staff for being available to help me resolve the issue. Compliment someone. I know this one can seem a little weird at first. But who doesn't like to receive a good compliment? Gratitude Journaling. Taking time to journal can be a great way to get your thoughts and feelings off your mind. When combined with gratitude this can be a powerful tool to get your mind on the right path. Think about the beauty of this very moment. Sometimes life can seem very stressful and at those moments we need a little lift. Take a moment to think about what you are grateful for in the moment. If stuck in traffic, think about how much you are grateful to have a car. Look out at the trees and the clouds. Sometimes appreciating the beauty of nature can be a great way to calm down. In a meal setting have everyone speak to one thing that they are grateful for. Ever get to the point where you don't know what to discuss during dinner or whatever meal you normally gather with family?  Next time this happens, ask each person to discuss what they are grateful for. This is a great way to introduce gratitude to the family. Thankfully we all live in abundance and there are many things to be grateful for. Even if it is something as simple as noticing and appreciating the beauty of nature.  Being grateful can come easily once you start to really practice being aware of what to be grateful for. Doing this on a regular basis is a great way to lighten your mood and motivate yourself.

  • The Beginning-Day 45

    I started my affiliate marketing journey 45 days ago with a course that teaches you mindset, a new lifestyle, and the basics of affiliate marketing. A lot of my journey has been getting over the fear of being out there in the world as an Affiliate Marketer. I have been at the same company for the past 15 plus years, so this is going to take some getting used to. Here are some of the steps I have taken to get started. Course - Entre Institute. This taught me how to use social media to gain an organic following through Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, and YouTube. I have yet to set up my YouTube page though simply because my e-mail has to be active for 30 days prior to setting it up. However, I do have content already made and ready to be uploaded to YouTube once I qualify. I have set up my LLC, e-mail support, and sales funnels set up using EntreSoft Software. The software helped me build everything from the initial sales funnel using their templates to my e-mail marketing strategy. Currently I am an affiliate marketer with Entre Institute because I really do believe in the amount of detail and value the course delivers. There are so many products and courses out there that from my experience do not deliver - Yes, I have tried a few. I want to make sure anything that I promote is something that I have already bought for myself and tried. I know that kind of puts me in a bind when it comes to what product to offer. However, I think it also puts me in a unique position because I only offer what I believe in. I also post on social media on a daily basis and try to be as consistent with it as possible. My goal is to spend the weekends creating the content and then focus on publishing it throughout the week. It has been recommended to post four times a day. I am at one to two times a day at this moment. Overall, it feels like a slow start. From what I hear most people quit because they do not get immediate results and the other issue is that the results that a lot of people post about are usually a fluke or inaccurate. Which is another reason for this blog. I want to give everyone what the real experience is like. My goal is to post on this blog weekly to give updates - SO, that's all for now folks, tune in later as I give updates.

  • Social Media - Here I Come!

    I Literally have 2 followers, I post content at least twice a day, and it isn't going anywhere! First, let's take a step back. What is the content you are posting? I could do an entire blog on this topic. For simplicity's sake you should be looking at other people in your niche, see what they are posting, and find a way to emulate them.  This way you know you are posting valuable content that is already proven by the amount of traffic it receives. Now I am not saying to COPY them to a "T", you don't want to do that. However, you want to look at different techniques they use. Is it all music? Is there text? What topics are being talked about in the comments. Are there any issues discussed in the comments that are worth addressing in your post? Look at the angle of the camera, the background, and even the lighting. What Hashtags are being used? Is there a good "hook". What is a hook? I am glad you asked. It is that 3-5 second window of where you catch the viewer's attention. Take a look at several viral videos in your niche and see if you can identify the "hook". It's a good practice to do this often so that you stay up to date with what the social media platform defines as "Good Content". Doing this consistently over time will help you grow your following and get your content to your customers. It takes time to get a good organic following so just keep at it and focus on the different kinds of content and not the numbers for a while. Once you have data, go back and see what performs well. Then start improving on those types of posts.

  • Thank You

    If you made it to this post, bless your heart. This is my first blog post so please be patient. In this post I want to take time to thank and show gratitude to those who are helping me on my path. I have an amazing family who supports me each day and brings joy to my life. My husband, Collin, who does an amazing job at being an adult. My Children; Avery, Graci, Logan, and Tristan who know just what to say to lift my spirits. My mentor and business partner who has helped me grow new skillsets to succeed in my physical, personal, financial, and my life's purpose. I also want to thank the corporate company I work for (who shall remain nameless) for the past 15 plus years. They supported me through good times and bad and played their part in my growth and development. They also made life so stressful that I found it necessary for a change to take care of my health, for which I am grateful. Without that adversity I would still be sitting in the cubical daily not knowing where my life was headed. Finally, I would like to thank all of you who made it this far in the post and are looking forward to joining me on my journey to financial freedom. I promise... it will get better from here.
