I had a lot of great ideas for today's episode, but nothing was exactly meshing together in my brain. Have you ever had that? Writer's block? Creator's block? Life block? 


You all know I am not usually one that is short on words, but sometimes getting them to work the way I want them to leaves me... speechless! 


Listen to how I (and many others) overcome writer's block, creator's block, and get all the juicy stuff out there by embracing rough, rocky, messy first drafts!

The Secret FOUR-Mula: Ideas on What to Share!

July 15, 2020

Let's face it, social media can be a bit daunting. We look into a sea of faces who seem to be putting their good sides forward and we are supposed to somehow get them to want to choose US and express interest in our businesses, right? 

But what on earth do we actually SHARE in order to get them to do that? 

In this episode, I share my not-so-secret sauce on how I work my content for social media for myself and my clients. It not only takes the mystery out of WHAT to post, it also opens you up to new ideas and may even unlock some creative juices!
