If you think that because you have a family and they are your main priority, that means that you don't really have the option to do something that fulfills your passion. Then let me tell you a little bit about myself. I come from no prior experience whatsoever, even though now I have a seven figure clothing brand. Whenever I started, I was a college dropout with no idea on how to even use a DSLR camera or how to use programs like Photoshop.
I didn't have the option to get a loan because I only had $40 in the bank. And I also definitely did not have any time to spare, because life throws you curveballs. I found myself in the position of a single mother. My passion for running a business was fueled both by having a strong desire to serve others with my flattering t-shirt line, but also to have the freedom to be with my child whenever she needed me. The idea of not seeing her grow up was heartbreaking, especially since I was the only parent around to see it. I also grew up in a family where passion wasn't necessarily considered, or even brought into that many conversations when talking about how you were going to make money and provide for your family.
I watched both my parents and essentially every adult around me make decisions on what would bring in a paycheck, but not make them happy. And it showed everyone worked, but no one was satisfied. I knew that there had to be a way to connect the two. You didn't have to miss out on your life, in your children's lives with an unfulfilling job in order to provide for them.
To me achieving my goal of being able to be present and provide for my little one was not optional. I had to make it work. So basically I just started. There's really no other way of saying that I started posting whatever I thought would be interesting. I tacked on a sale to almost all of my posts and posted almost every single day.
When I started to use Instagram to bring in revenue for my business it was essentially like walking down a hallway, lined with doors of opportunities, but doing blindfolded. I tried everything. I tried posting pictures of just my product. I tried posting pictures of my friends and my products. And I tried posting once a day, sometimes multiple times a day. I tried to figure what hashtags to use. And I really struggled with captions.
Ultimately I had good intentions, but it led to major burnout. Basically, I felt like I was going nowhere on Instagram and I was getting really annoyed. And I started to feel like maybe I just wasn't good enough or that maybe my pictures just were not professional enough. I was literally on the verge of giving up and I stumbled across this blogger whom I wish I could remember her name because I would totally give her credit.
But she said something to the effect that there are several ways of posting on Instagram and it all begins with your intent and style. And that made total sense to me. It was my light bulb moment. I had seen the accounts where every picture seemed to fit and their captions not only made me want to know more about them, but the person behind the product as well, not necessarily every single time, but I really wanted to know more about the company and the business as well. It felt like they were creating a relationship with me and I've realized that was what I was missing in my previous attempts. It was also mind boggling to me that the pictures that seem to fit together to create this stunning pattern was also planned that way.
So I began to basically restrategize my game. I can honestly tell you I have made every single mistake known to man (and that is not just limited to my business life), but there was so much benefit with the knowledge that I gained on what not to do with myself. I learned that there are several ways you can succeed in monetizing your Instagram and it starts with your intention.
I did all of the dirty work for you basically. And now with eight years of this under my belt, I now make well over six figures and I can be with my daughter whenever she needs me. And I did everything that everyone says you need to have. I did it without it. I did it. I created this seven figure clothing brand without a college degree, without a babysitter, without a fancy camera, a sewing machine, any kind of knowledge on business management or branding or knowledge on how to use fancy computer programs like Photoshop. I am not going to lie to you. I am not a fancy person. Okay. This is not a super fancy program. This is a very point blank course of action program that is designed to get you to where you want to be at a much faster pace and much faster than what it took me.
And it's using Instagram to free up your time, make an impact and even use it to rake in the revenue through Instagram. This program is for those of you who don't know what to post, when to post, how to post, where to post, but it's also about how to create actual relationships with your followers while still being true to yourself and posting exactly what you want to post and how often you want to post it.
It's for business owners, consultants, coaches, products, online shops, brick and mortar shops. If you fall into any of those categories, then this course is for you.
