"Do not downplay your influence…Think of yourself as that small buisness. And with that, you also have to know that you own and operate something that generates income, so you have to step into that CEO role."
"To get to the next level, to elevate, I'm consistently going to have to invest in someone who knows more than I do. That uncomfortable feeling will never go away, but know that it is the indicator that you are headed in the right direction to upleveling. Growth is not comfortable."
"Don't forget, you are the CEO. You are the CEO of your brand. No business is too small, no blog is too small to start thinking in that CEO mindset."
"DON'T try to copy or be someone else because your voice is authentic and it's needed. There's already someone taking up space as that person you're trying to copy. You will always come second to someone who is being their authentic self."
"DO operate in excellence in anything you do with your brand. So when it comes to visuals, do hire a photographer when you're able to. Learn editing programs to make your content stand out...Get personal with your audience."
"DO have your goals in mind...If you're trying to attract big brands, they want to see that you can produce quality, cohesive content."
