Coaches, have you set your social media goals for September? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Too often, I see coaches just hammering away at social media without an actual plan. They either think:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "I'll just post as much as I possibly can and talk to my ideal clients, and they'll find me!"⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ OR⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "I have too much going on to worry about social media. I'll get to it when I get to it." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Neither one of those strategies--posting only when you can, or posting as much as you can--produces measurable results. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Why? Because "as much as I can" isn't a unit of measurement!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Not to mention it's hard to plan out your conversion strategy if you don't know when you'll be posting. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And you *do* want to convert your audience members into customers, don't you?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That's why I created the Influence Content Calendar. If you're a coach, consultant, service provider, influencer, or personal brand, the Influence Content Calendar was MADE for you! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I've taken all of the stress, guesswork, and even thinking out of social media posting. Inside the calendar, you'll get a *daily* post prompt, outline, call to action, and photo suggestions. All you have to do is plug and play! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Plus it comes with this awesome Social Media Focus Sheet that lets you set your goals for the month, making it easy to stay on track and focused with your strategy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The best part? It's less than a dollar a day! Seriously, for $27, you can have every single post for September at the click of a button. And if you subscribe, you can keep the calendars coming with new, fresh strategy every month, PLUS extra bonuses!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I haven't been this excited about something in a while, y'all. Get your hands on it at the link in my bio.
First, it has a huge gold coil that’s not only gorgeous, but allows the planner to lay completely flat when it’s open. The 2021 Daily Simplified Planner also contains Emily Ley’s signature bonuses at the front of the planner, including a welcome letter, a “How to use your Simplified Planner” guide, a yearly calendar view, a list of yearly holidays, and a few other tools to help you focus on what matters throughout the year. You’ll also be less likely to overfill your schedule, so you won’t be tempted to skip your self-care, workouts, or social events because you “don’t have time. If you’re interested in the 2021 Daily Simplified planner, or her sister, the 2021 Weekly Simplified Planner, I’ve got great news for you!
Imagine if you NEVER had to think of what to post on social media ever again. If that sounds like a dream, take a sneak peek inside the ACTUAL PAGES of the Influence Content Calendar! I know you're smart and want to get amazing value for every dollar and minute you invest in your business.

Without fail, I'm always more excited to use things when they look good. So I took the time to make this calendar pretty so you'll actually *want* to use it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ (4) You don't see this here, but you'll also get a list of monthly holidays and a social media focus sheet to keep you on track for each month. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Plus, when you subscribe to the calendar, not only do you automatically get each month's material, you get amazing bonuses: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✨ Our Social Media Growth Tracker, so you can keep track of your stats as you implement the strategy.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✨ Bonus Instagram Story Templates⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✨ Bonus Instagram Story Topics⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✨ Access to our exclusive online community for support, tips, challenges, and other extras.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✨ Plus, get ONE MONTH FREE when you subscribe for a year!

We’ve made it to my final gift guife for 2017–just in time for Black Friday! I hope you had an amazing Thanksgiving with your family and friends and are ready to enjoy the holiday season!

Today is the first day of autumn...but it's also exactly 100 days until the end of the year! What are you going to do with your 100 days? This year has been wacky. For some it was sad, and scary, and all kinds of other negative things. But it's not over, and we have a *choice* as to how we spend the remainder of it. Today, I'm setting my 100-day goals to finish the year strong. If that resonates with you, I challenge you to do the same! You can even send me a DM with your goals so I can cheer you on. You can do ANYTHING for 100 days. What habits do you want to start? What goals do you want to achieve? How do you want to take care of yourself and your family? Let me know how you're spending your 100 days and how you want to start 2021! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #gettothegoodstuff #makeideashappen #influencive #unlockpotential #SmartSuccess #staybossyladies #wearechampions #daregreatly #businesscoachforwomen #creativeentrepreneurs #bizcoach #buildyourbusiness #sayyestosuccess #bossladymindset⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #entrepreneurtips #buildingmyempire #buildinganempire #businesscoaching #dothework⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #creativebusiness #fempreneur #savvybusinessowner⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #creativeentrepreneur #womeninbiz #risingtidesociety #beyourownboss #communityovercompetition #TILInsiders #TheInstagramLab #elegantexcellence
My absolute favorite people to shop for during the holidays are the home chefs. They appreciate gadgets and tools as well as the simple kitchen items like serveware and adorable tea towels. Plus, if you get them into the kitchen, they just might come out with a little snacky treat for you! I’ve made it my mission this year to keep you far, far away from the craziness of the mall this holiday season.
Happy Fall, y'all! North Carolina woke me up with some weather in the 40s, and I am LOVING it.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Every year, I get a huge burst of energy in the fall. My brain goes into overdrive through the holidays, allowing me to create more and get more done than at other times of the year.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This year, I'm focusing on a few goals before the end of the year (which I'll be sharing on my blog very soon!) I'm channeling that energy into new, exciting things!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What about you? Are you happy fall has arrived? Do you get the same energy when the weather cools down? Let me know!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *Photo from our styled shoot at the Graham Mill.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Planner: @mrs.cheyennepainter⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Venue: @thegrahammill⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photographer: @triciamichaelphoto⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Florist: @rhondahicksfloraldesign⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Bridal Gowns: @southernbride⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Stationery Designer: @ivyandlinendesign⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Tabletop Rentals: @partymakerseventrental⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Specialty Rentals: @eventful_nc⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Details: @_poppy_co_⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Hair & Makeup Artist: @smgbeautyco
If you were here yesterday, you already know that I do pretty much all of my holiday shopping on Amazon.

For the last three years, I have been done with holiday shopping by Cyber Monday, leaving me free to just enjoy the season. So today I’m bringing you the second of my Amazon Holiday Gift Guides.

How many people get to marry their sweetheart TWICE?! Well, this was a styled wedding shoot, but I'll take it! And I'm taking YOU behind the scenes of the whole shoot.
