Social Media Makes You Less Social

I don’t really know how to start this post. I mean I do, I’m here, I’m starting it, though I guess I am starting without an end in mind. Since traveling for the last four months, I’ve realized that my long-term friendships have been tested and lucky for me, survived the distance. I’ve come to realize that being in a friendship/relationship with a person who works in social media is a lot like a long distance relationship. I am constantly on…

Laura is a not only a nutritionist that you’ll learn all about below, but she also developed an amazing collection of teas,…

Fast Five: Life Lessons from Mama

Today is International Women’s Day. Toward the end of last year, with all we learned about Harvey Weinstein and the #metoo, #timesup movements, I really made a choice to educate and immerse myself in understanding more about women’s right and feminism. Leave it to me to have celebrity gossip drive my educational path. I am lucky that my cousin, Temma, is well versed in women’s right and women’s studies and she has sort of taken me under her wing to…

Habit 7: Sharpen The Saw

I had a great conversation this morning about forming habits and how Habits are actually a stronger motivator in business than any other incentive. And after debating the pros and cons, I had to agree – strong habits are the key to a successful self-starter – like consistency is key here people. We’ve all heard this and it got me thinking about one of the first books Daddy Niko gave me as a child (yes, we can dive into that therapy session…

The Reassess

I just Googled the definition of ‘Reassess’ and it said this, “consider or assess again, especially while paying attention to new or different factors.” Ok, got it. The past six months, this word is all that has been coming to my mind. REASSESS. I am not sure why I had such reservations about acknowledging it. But the past few weeks spent away and in reading that definition, having it right in my face, I realize that what I wasn’t paying…

Fast Five: How to Win Sponsored Partnerships

This post has been sitting in my drafts for a while mostly because I wasn’t sure if it warranted more than just five tips. It is by far the question I get asked about the most: “How do I get sponsorships?” And while I wish there was some magic, simple way to achieve this, I’m here to tell you there isn’t. Sponsored partnerships really come down to the work. Taking time to develop a mutually beneficial idea, then creating kick-ass content,…
