Why I switched from Teachable to Thinkific : Teachable vs Thinkific

As a small business owner, you might want to create an online course at some point and that’s great. There are SO many strategies and information out there about creating online courses. This post will hopefully help you find a good platform for yours!

I did things backward with my small business. I jumped straight into building a course BEFORE growing my email list, building trust with my audience, and networking with other business owners.

I learned so many lessons and if I could do it over again I would choose a course topic that is related to what I want to do instead of what I am good at. Because as we know, because you’re good at something doesn’t mean that you should do it.

I’ve been using Tailwind for about 6 months but over the past few months I have been very intentional with how I’m using the app. I absolutely love the Board Lists feature where I am able to schedule 50+ pins a day so I can grow my Pinterest account and spend more time doing things that I want to.

How to Hide the Header, Pre-footer and Footer on Squarespace (2018)

Have you ever wanted to hide your header and footer on Squarespace to make you're own landing page without using a program like LeadPages or OptinMonster or a Cover Page template?

In this blog post, I'm going to show you how you can create a page in Squarespace landing page that hides your header and footer. This is separate than a Squarespace Cover Page.

I created this page for my instagram account.

It's on Squarespace and it's essentially my "all the links" page which is very similar to a site called linktr.ee.

Since I designed it on Squarespace, I'm able to have more flexibility without having the header and footer.

I have had so many people ask me how to do this so in the video below I'm going to show you real quick how I did that.

How to Get Comfortable with Creating Video Content

How to Get Comfortable with Creating Video Content

Today I'm going to share with you things that are helpful as far as video creation goes.

When you first start creating video... I want you to start with where you are comfortable.

I don't want you to say things like, "oh I need to have this or I need to have that or I need a new camera or I need a background or any of that stuff." You really really really just need to focus on what you are comfortable with and where you are now.

When I first started doing video, I did not want to be on camera. I did not want to see my face on camera because I was self conscious and I had a lot of fears/excuses but I just had to get over that. Once I got in front of the camera I have been able to connect with people more, grow my online presence and my business has grown FAST.
