Our little homestead is full of activity as I have five little kids (ages 11-3) and one pretty amazing husband. We all work together to look after about 100 chickens and guinea hens as well as the most active 14-year-old Yorki Poo you ever met. The gardens span ½ acres and the once wild pond is a sandy beach that rivals most destination vacations. A fire pit with rusting beer caps (that’s from me, I always miss when I try to throw them in the fire!) and the perfect view of the sunrise round out why I can’t help but feel like life is pretty perfect here.
My blogging career has been an eventful (and profitable!) one and I now average 30,000 page views a day from facebook alone. I want to teach you how to harness the power of social media and turn it into traffic. I will show you how I have grown my brand consistently. (June 2016 has been the highest traffic month of my career, something unheard of for a baking blog!) We will learn to zig when everyone else is zagging. I will walk with you and help you navigate any rough waters you may encounter.
What specifically does that look like? It can be as detailed as helping you to grow your facebook following or as broad as just being an ally in this crazy career we call blogging.
I will listen to your needs and then offer up any wisdom I have acquired over the last 10+ years. That includes authenticity in blogging, how I market myself through my blog and social media, time management, my creative process, the process of writing and publishing a best-selling cookbook, why an amazing media-kit is important, how to build a community, how to best share content on social media, how I price my talents and time, how to be a paid speaker, how to work with brands, how to grow facebook, how to be an influencer, as well as what keeps me sane and happy and so much more.
I have a heart for you, for your passions and dreams, and for helping you to reach them.
I believe very strongly that we are all meant to shine in this world. Some will write, some will dance, some will cook, some will take pictures. But we were all given unique designed gifts that we are absolutely called to use.
What is your mentoring style?
I am very hands on. I want to talk to you face to face. I want to hear about your hopes, dreams, and business goals before we determine a brand strategy. I am honest (brutally so) and yet want to be very careful with your feelings.
Can you guarantee results?
No, I absolutely cannot. But I can assure you will work tirelessly to create positive momentum for your brand.
Why is it such a big investment?
Social media marketing and mentoring can cost anywhere from $500 to $20,000 a month. (Learn more here: How Much Does Social Media Marketing Cost) Other mentoring programs with established and proven leaders start at $2,000 to sign up. I have intentionally underpriced myself in this market for one main reason:
I care about you.
I care about your individual, personal, unique growth. My program is not set up for mass enrollment. It is half a dozen people in an intensive 6-week session. That means individual attention. That means one-on-one communication. That means I am at your disposal for that time and want to dedicate my time and energies to you. That means we focus on your specific goals, dreams, and talents. It is catered to you, not to “every” blogger.
One thing I ask before signing up new clients is that you pray on it. I care very deeply about your financial situation and want to make sure that it is what God wants in your life. If He approves of us working together, then He will make a way. If you pray on this opportunity and are not feeling confident, then I believe this is simply not our time.
MY PROMISE TO YOU
I will be there with you every step of the way.
I’ll listen to you, and I’ll make space for what matters to you most in this season. We’ll have deep and meaningful conversations, and fun and light-hearted ones too. I’ll push you when you need it, and take it a little slower when you need that too. More than anything, I’ll remind you of what you’re capable of even when you cannot see it yourself.
All I ask is that you give this process 100% too. We can make incredible things happen in your creative work and life!
