Before I took Gram Slam, I did not have a plan when it came to posting to Instagram Stories, I would randomly post stories and no one engaged with them. After taking Gram Slam, I am no longer overwhelmed with how to post to Instagram Stories and I love engaging with my audience through the app. Plus my audience grows daily!

One of the best things that I learned from Alex is that I don’t have to show my face on instagram stories every time to still engage with my audience AND you can prerecord your stories so you don’t feel like you’re ALWAYS ONLINE.

I now spend LESS TIME on Instagram because I have a plan!

Have you ever wanted to have more desktop screen space but didn’t want to buy a PC or iMac? I felt the same way and decided to convert my Macbook Pro into a desktop while I was sitting at my desk in my home office.

I started my YouTube channel in 2017 and editing videos on my previous 2010 13” Macbook Air was hard on such a small screen and older laptop. I looked into buying an iMac but then realized that I could setup an external monitor instead to get more screen space.

Earlier this year I upgraded to a Macbook Pro and the accessories and video below are what I am currently using as my desk setup. It’s great for editing videos while I’m sitting at my desk and when I’m not as my desk I can just use my laptop.

The best part about this setup is that you save money by using an external monitor, keyboard and mouse instead of buying a desktop computer.

This setup cost me under $500 and a new iMac starts at $1200. Win!!

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.

The important thing to remember when taking online courses is that they won’t work unless you do. Of course, you’ll have some that you just don’t feel like work out best for you and your business. Before you buy a course, be sure to do your research, make sure that it’s something that you have time/money for and is something that you really want to work on.

I have taken a few courses that really weren’t as great as the teacher perceived, or on par with where I was at that time and that was disappointing. So again, do your research. 

You can research courses before you take them by:

  • Googling the course name and reading reviews
  • Reaching out to someone that you know has previously taken a course and asking them any questions that you may have
  • Finding a FAQ for the course and reach out to the teacher or team
  • Search in Facebook groups that you are active in

I love taking courses that help me in areas that I’m not proficient in, want to expand on or were recommended to me. Inside my Simplify Your Biz Tools free course, I listed these out in more detail, you can enroll here for free!

Did you know that most software programs only offer 30% and up deals only twice a year? Black Friday/Cyber Monday is a great time to hop on these deals and the BEST part is that most of these purchases will make you MONEY and they are a complete write-off!

Sometimes shopping the sales can seem overwhelming but lucky for you I have found the best deals for Creative Bloggers and Business Owners.

Most of these deals end at midnight tonight so you want to take action soon!
