    I think we can all agree that the first six months of 2020 have been crazy, uncertain, and have pushed us in ways that we never expected -- especially as entrepreneurs. Nonetheless, six months have passed and we’re now halfway through the year. So from one friend to another, how are your 2020 goals coming along? Maybe you’re kicking butt -- go you!

    After 11 years of building a successful online business, there is one area I see entrepreneurs go wrong time and time again. Want to know what it is? They put all their effort into growing their social media following without properly using it to grow their email list. In my experience, that’s a big no, no. So, why would that be a big mistake? Well, here are a couple of stats I want to share with you. Your return on investment with an email list is 4x higher than any other marketing platform. In fact, the average ROI is 122%. For every one dollar spent on email marketing, you could make between forty-five to fifty-one dollars. You do not, and I repeat, do not own your social media followers. You do, however, own your email list. This means that a social media platform can take your followers away at any point, or dictate who does and does not see your content. Do I have your attention yet? I’m not saying you should ditch social media. Instead, I’m giving you simple, effective strategies for utilizing your s

    Can I let you in on a little secret? If you become a decisive entrepreneur early on in your journey, it’s going to serve you in the long run. How do I know? Because I’ve been in the game for twelve years now, and I’d say that’s long enough to feel like I’ve made enough decisions to last me a lifetime. I have a question for you, do you consider yourself to be a decisive person? If you answered “no,” that’s totally fine. To be honest, I’ve always been a pretty decisive person (just like my mom!).
