A weird post to write I hear you cry (does anyone cry anymore or shriek for that matter or do we now just insert emoticons and move on with our lives?!)- I digress, for those who don't know (where've you been people)-I just won the double at the BritMums in Brilliance Awards and am literally walking on air...
I'm honoured to be a finalist at the BritMums in Brilliance Awards in the Social Media category so I thought it was high-time I shared my own social media tips for bloggers and business owners. Here's my Top 10.
If you want to succeed in business- and in life, you need to have a purpose, you need to work out what you're passionate about, what feeds your soul- and potentially your tummy (we all need dollar) and then you must work on finding the strength, means and time to make that dream a reality.
Last Friday was mine and Jessica Huie MBE's 'Turning Passion Into Pounds' workshop with the Business & IP Centre and The British Library- and I'm proud to declare it was a resounding success. Yay!
Let me start off by writing that I don't even know if I can adequately express just how EPIC in caps last weekend in London, was for me.
A lot of people keep mentioning 'success' to me lately, some kindly comment that they feel I'm successful- and while that's flattering, it's made me question how I personally deem and measure success.
Can we take a minute to talk money.
Slasher careers are on the rise. You might well be a slasher yourself. I know I definitely am.
Mine & Jessica Huie MBE’s Workshop with Stylist Magazine: Inspiring Women To Turn Their Passion Into Pounds
Last week I had the absolute honour of hosting a workshop with my close friend and business partner Jessica Huie MBE on 'Turning Passion Into Pounds'.
Doubt, it's easy to let it overcome you and eat you up, isn't it? But you mustn't let it.
Recently, I've found I've had to explain to a fair few people in the 'real world' what a blogging career actually means.
Hey there awesome readers. I've written a post in answer to some of your blogging questions. Each day I receive several emails/twitter and fb messages asking me how to make a blog a business. Here I share a brief post that will hopefully offer some insight.
My Time at the FunFest Blogger Summit 2015 (Including my Keynote Speech from Maternity Leave to Professional Blogger)
Wow what a whirlwind the FunFest Blogger Summit was last weekend! It was one of those feel-good inspiring events that made me feel energised and excited (even more, if that was possible) about this beautiful world of blogging!
It's so easy in life to be constantly chasing dreams, and believe me, I'm a big believer in dreaming big, working hard, and simply going for 'it' whatever 'it' might be, but recently I've had a little shift in thinking...
Recently, I've noticed a fair few people remark on how confident I am, or at least appear to be (it was mentioned several times at Blog Camp where I spoke recently, with many asking me how they could become more confident when it comes to going on camera or making their blog their business and I receive a lot of emails on the subject too.
Saturday saw me train-it to Birmingham, taking my Mum along for the ride (my biggest supporter, it was so sweet she wanted to hear me speak) as I shared my experience as a full time blogger at Tots100's Blog Camp in Birmingham.
Rules, rules, rules. I get it, many, many rules when it comes to creativity, be it screenwriting to blogging and beyond, are incredibly useful for insight, guidance and inspiration but rules, my friends were made to be broken.
