I love a great lip color, #maccosmetics Lady Danger, feeling fierce and confident!
What gives you that extra boost of confidence?
You see I'm rocking my brand on my chest, which always brings up great conversations and new connections. Met an awesome young lady #MUA who is also an entrepreneur @paper_kutz she does all her work by hand!

EMAIL MARKETING WEEK 📧
If you're sending emails out to potential customers or a loyal following always check the results. You want to know how your emails are performing, are people opening them? Are they clicking the call to actions you've put in there? 💌
Looking at reports like this helps shape your email marketing and how you can take it forward. Don't get disheartened if the results aren't what you'd like to see, look objectively and ask yourself...why? 🤔
You want to know whether your email marketing is working, so don't ignore the results, they can help make it stronger for your audience. ⭐️
EMAIL MARKETING WEEK 📧
It all starts with this, a simple hello. If you're doing email marketing in your business and you've got a sign up form think about what you say to your audience after they've signed up. 🤔
It's brilliant that they've joined your list but don't just leave them there, why not create a little welcome series to further introduce them to your business, let them get to know you more and why you're the best business around for what they're looking for! 👍🏻
Think about how to make your parent customers feel special right from the word go! ⭐️

This weeks #spotlightonastartup Is this awesome startup business @outtheboxent they provide alternative entertainment for parties! And then realised I went to school with the founder... such a small world! Keep up the great work Andre and the team! Check them out guys!
Gone fishing from June 16-July 25 and I will be out of touch during that time. New blog posts are scheduled for every Monday on celiafriedmandesignblog.wordpress.com so check every week if you want beautiful pics and design musings. If you have an interior design or decluttering project that you want to start at the beginning of September please let me know by emailing email@example.com. Every summer I go commercial salmon fishing with my family in Ekuk, Alaska. A large part of what pushed me to become an entrepreneur is so I can make space for this experience in my life. I reconnect with and renew my mind and body while living in a small cabin with no electricity, indoor plumbing, internet or cell service. I treasure and need the time away from technology. I hope you find time this summer to put all the screens away to go swimming, exploring, hiking or whatever makes your heart happy.
We had an awesome brand consult yesterday with a potential client who was curious about how she could better market her business. She's spent all this time designing + creating awesome content, and feels like she understands her unique value proposition and has a strong business model, but somehow still struggles with attracting the audiences she wants to work with. .
Has this ever been you? .
It's okay, it's been us too! It can be incredibly deflating to spend hours upon hours pouring your heart + soul into your business, with little to nothing in return. No phone calls, minimal hits on your website, an empty calendar. While much of this is just a part of the process of learning and building a business, there's a lot that's actually within your locus of control. .
🌿How much time do you spend building your NETWORK + talking about your business? Are you taking advantage of opportunities to market your business through word of mouth?
🌿Do you understand the NEEDS and INTERESTS of your target audience? Have you ever asked them, "hey, what is it that would make you invest in X? What is it that would deter you from doing so?" Without this information, you may not be creating the right products and services, or marketing them in a way that resonates with them
. 🌿Is your brand + value COMPELLING and ATTRACTIVE? Does it entice people, and strike their curiosity? Are you positioned to provide your audience with an EXPERIENCE that they can't get from anyone or anywhere else? .
If your answer to any of these questions is "no," DM us so we can chat! There's no reason for you to spin your wheels tirelessly and not get the results you want. Marketing your brand requires a well-honed STRATEGY. Consider us your thought partners as you develop one that works for your business!
When designing a brand new website for a client I give them a client work book to tell me as much as possible about their vision and their business. Part of that work is also a Pinterest project to create this using visuals. It's such a brilliant exercise because you don't know what clients will choose or what they're inspired by and it can really influence the design and approach I take. 🖍
This lovely image was chosen by a client of mine and I love the colours here and the sketched lamps. It's fun, kooky and I feel Inspiration coming already! ⭐️

After doing Day 2 of Shaun T week, I had an a-ha moment. I was dripping with sweat and felt completely badass for getting my workout in even on vacation, and it hit me. Why am I treating my business like a hobby? Did I treat my half ironman training like a hobby? No, I did everything that was on my plan. It's not my personality to do anything half way, so today I'm throwing my hat in the ring, I am going to go from a hobby coach to a business building coach.
You don't have to be in shape to be a coach. Most coaches are people who tried a challenge group or another BB product and had success and decided they wanted to pay it forward as a coach. Some coaches, like myself, are crazy about everything and anything fitness related. One thing all coaches have in common is helping others reach their personal fitness goals and stick with them through the whole process.
Business wise, I enjoy earning my own money. I will tell you having three kids in sports isn't cheap😳 It has been nice to be able to pay a portion of my daughter's volleyball fees or my son's XC season. With one heading off to college next year, I know any extra income will be needed😉 I like being a part of fitness minded people who strive to help one another, full of motivation and positivity. I need more of that in my life.
Consider yourself invited to join me as a challenger or a coach. Got questions, I've got the answers, you just have to ask!
Call me (call me) on the line
Call me, call me any, anytime 📞
That's right, if you're wanting to really smash Digital Marketing for your business and reach those busy parents with your online shop, your baby/toddler class or your antenatal support groups then give me a call, or email really I don't mind. I'd just to hear from you and talk about how I can help you! ⭐️
The bosses are in the office today.
Scheduling, phone calls, reaching out to other like minded people, while drinking coffee and listening to my favorite relaxation cd.
Heaters on, cosy and warm.
Toasted sandwiches for lunch today I think.
Inquiring minds want to know! As #entrepreneurs , we spend so much time building, reimagining, strategizing, striving for something something more. While we're in full #grindmode , we don't always stop, smell the roses, and bask in what currently IS. .
So, what is working in your business right NOW, that you're loving?! What is giving you life? Is it a particular Facebook group you're apart of? A new product you just launched? A client you're working with? A new system you discovered? Spread the love! 💜✨
First of it's kind in the world! And it begins right here in Nigeria, Africa, and will cut across nations, tribes, religion, language, sex, RACE, etc. * * *
The world comes up with all sort to make us think we came into this world on our own and for ourselves. But hey, that's a massive lie. Jesus is the Master of the universe. *** As a Coach and *studying spiritual teacher, I realized we don't give Him, God, His place in our lives and business. So we struggle to get ahead, whereas, we've been given the land. *** Ladies and gents, let's go back to who we are and what we were made to do --- WORSHIP THE KING. The results after this, only God will give it.
I don't even know why He wants me to do this, but I'm all in Lord... *** I hereby kindly request that you pray for this movement. Pray that God will use it to God glory. And that the essence of for your own life will be made known to you. * * *
For years, I have taught branding. I believe everyone created by God was created for a special task. Yours will be known to you at this meeting. * * *
More details will get to you soon👍 But please, download the TELEGRAM app now if you haven't...

SOCIAL MEDIA WEEK 📱
Client feedback is so important and I love knowing that the work I have done has made a difference to my clients. Working in this amazing sector of parent focused businesses is just fabulous - I love my clients. 💕
If you're struggling with social media or perhaps haven't started yet and have no clue - I can help you. Let's have a lovely friendly chat about where you are and where you want to go. 🙌🏻
If you need a little bit more and are looking for someone to take your accounts on for you, I also offer Social Media Management packages as well. Head over to the link in bio ⬆️ to see how I can help your business. I'd love to hear from you ☎️
Hope you've all enjoyed Social Media Week and remember everyone has what it takes to be a Digital Star ⭐️ •
Coffee tastes better, kids arguing at 6.15am about seems reasonable, and although I've had 31/2 hours sleep teaching Miss 3 to stay in her own bed, today I feel like I can take on the world and all its technology...BIG statement from me!!!
Happy Friyay everyone.
Mummy gets to drink wine tonight!!!!
SOCIAL MEDIA WEEK 📱
Ahhh Social Media, the tricks of the trade, the "definite" ways to make it a success. With so much advice out there guiding you on how to make your social media work for your business it can be hard to know exactly what to do. 🤔
I am a strong believer in that no method is prescriptive for everyone, each and every account is different, your business is different and your goals and audience are different. What works for some doesn't work for others so don't get down if you're trying some techniques that don't work. Sure there are tips that can help but it's all about experimenting and trying things out - you're account definitely won't die a death if you miss a post one day or don't post at 3pm and change it to 10am to try things out. How will you know what else works otherwise? 👩🏼💻

This! Soooooooooo much so. Your Brilliant, beautiful, badassery was MADE to flow from you. Let that mofo stardust flow. ✨✨✨Surrender to the fact that your ideas matter and could change the world. Believe it. 🔥💗🤘🏼 #stardust#stardustclub#doit#trust
SOCIAL MEDIA WEEK 📱
One of the things my clients speak to me about when it comes to social media is time. When you're a busy business owner, and a lot of my clients are parents on top of that, time is precious. ⏰
Making social media work does take a lot of time and energy. Thinking about your content, planning your content and then actually posting it all. But there are tools out there to help you and you can then get hours back...I mean hours.
Using a Social Media Management System like @buffer or @planoly (for Insta) can really help shave hours off your day. You can schedule your posts and let the apps do the work for you. You can read about these two in the link in my bio (today only) 👍🏻
Now, saying that some platforms work with spontaneity, like Instagram, so make sure you have a healthy mix of planned posts and ones off the cuff that show the real life, personable side behind your business. Instagram Stories can be marvellous for this!
