If there’s one thing I wholeheartedly believe in life, it’s this. In a world where competition and nastiness is sometimes the norm I’m choosing to be kind. ✨⁣ ⁣ Shirt is from @damadetroit!⁣ ⁣ -⁣ ⁣ #coffeerun #morningmotivation #tuesdaythoughts #coffeebreak #goodthingscoming #businesswithheart #bekind #kindnesswins #coffeeshopvibes #entrepreneurship #createcultivate #creativelife #womeninbusiness #detroitbusinessowners #smallbizowners #smallbizowner #shoplocal #shopsmall

The face I make when I get a new podcast review 😉😉⁣ ⁣ This week I’m sharing the 100th episode of the podcast (!!!) and boy, is it another vulnerable one! I’m talking about how I lost my biggest revenue stream recently… and replaced it in about a day. ⁣ ⁣ No, there’s nothing scammy or sketchy about how I did it, and YES, you can do it, too. If your income has taken a hit due to the global health crisis or you’ve been struggling with client acquisition in the first place, you’ve gotta tune into this one. ⁣ ⁣ Spoiler alert: these things all helped.⁣ ⁣ ✔️ Circling back with old clients⁣ ✔️ Checking my Upwork messages⁣ ✔️ Impressing a smaller client⁣ ✔️ Changing my mindset⁣ ✔️ Simplifying my sales process⁣ ⁣ Search for The Freelance Friday Podcast wherever you listen to your podcasts or click the link in my bio!⁣ ⁣ -⁣ ⁣ #freelancefridaypodcast #freelancefriday #podernfamily #podincolor #wocpodcasters #femalesinbusiness #ladybizness #creativeentrepreneur #entrepreneur #entrepreneurlife #entrepreneurship #podcastlife #podcastersofinstagram #podlife #smallbiz #freelancer #freelancerlife #freelancelife #freelance #selfemployment #createcultivate #creativelife

Fueled by coffee and dreams this week.⁣ ⁣ #creativeentrepreneur #freelancelife #freelancer #marketingconsultant #freelancing #workingfromanywhere #remotework #wfhlife #coffeebreak #coffeelover

Everything I learned about treating people right, I learned it from her. Happy birthday, mom.⁣ ⁣ If you need a smile (I know they’re hard to come by), enjoy my sister’s second grade artwork of our family in the second frame.

I’ve lost followers for the most innocent Instagram story, so guess I’ll just keep it going. I thought I could get out of this one without any battle scars because I’ve already spoken up so much over the years. I am TIRED. But with any platform comes responsibility. Many of you decided to follow me for business advice, and yes, this is related.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ It’s related because experiencing rental discrimination for the first time last year has encouraged me to save my coins so I can buy my first home with cash.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ It’s related because I know how empowering leaving a toxic work environment that makes you feel othered every single day for years can feel.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ It’s related because entrepreneurship, to me, is the ultimate form of rebellion.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ My African American ancestors have fought for this Nation since the Civil War, before they were even seen as whole people. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I am an all-American girl.⁣⁣ I am the all-American dream.⁣⁣ And I am my ancestors WILDEST dreams.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Today, I encourage you to look into ways to encourage Justice for George Floyd. But as current or future founders, I’d also like to use this space to remind you that injustice does not only occur in the form of physical violence. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ YOU have the power to hire diverse teams (that includes not just entry-level positions, but also your business coach, your accountant, your co-founder, etc…) ⁣⁣ You have the power to foster a welcoming environment in your business. For your employees, your contractors, your clients, social media followers, and your customers.⁣⁣ You have the power to learn. One of my signature phrases is, “to be a business owner, you have to be a lifelong learner”. This does not just apply to coding, marketing, or design skills — but to soft skills, too. They matter so dang much in business, believe it or not.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ 📸: @cleowade

It’s been a little bit since I’ve done #FridayIntroductions and I’ve seen some new faces around here so hi! I’m Latasha. I create videos and podcasts about entrepreneurship, host a mentorship program for new coaches and service providers, and make cool video content for my clients.⁣ ⁣ Enough of the boring stuff though — let’s play a little game, shall we? I’ve lived in all of the cities below EXCEPT for one. Let me know which one you think is the lie in the comments (feel free to let me know where you live, too!) 😉⁣ ⁣ A. Washington, DC⁣ B.

Cheers to another trip around the sun ✨ Spent the day with the one who never lets me down. I hate the idea of running out of time here on earth but I love getting older. Never felt more confident about letting go of things that weren’t meant to be, my skinny little chicken legs, or the wrinkles around my eyes. #Heresto29⁣ ⁣ 📸: @greatlakernori

If wearing a mask is cool, consider me Miles Davis. 😎 Just posted a new SMM Q&A on my YouTube, talked a bit about how freelancers can adjust to this “new normal” plus some of my favorite apps, tools, and perks of being a freelancer. ⁣ ⁣ You know where the link is! ☀️⁣ ⁣ 〰️⁣ ⁣ #freelancelife #freelancer #socialmediamarketing #smm #smallbiz #smallbiztips #smallbizowner #digitalnomad #laptoplifestyle #laptoplifestyleliving #contentcreator #creativelife #createcultivate #manifestyourdreams #abundantlife #abundantmindset

AGENCY OR FREELANCE? It’s a question I get often, and the truth is, starting an agency and working as a freelancer both have pros and cons.⁣ ⁣ Sharing the reasons why I started my company + what I’d do if I was starting over from scratch today on the podcast.

And on what felt like the 1000th day of quarantine, we decided to make it official. I never thought I was the marrying kind till I met this one. Love you forever @greatlakernori. #ISaidYes

I was supposed to be on a solo trip to NYC this weekend for business, so since that’s obviously been canceled, here are some good memories from my last time in the city. I’ve always had respect for New York yet never really enjoyed being there, but this past fall I had a great time and felt the magic that everyone talks about. Thousandths time’s (lol) a charm I guess!⁣ ⁣ I hope the last photo sparks as much joy for you as it did for me 🤣⁣ ⁣ -⁣ ⁣ #travelinggram #travelmemories #aweekendinthecity #newyork #nyc #weekendvibes #solotravel #stayhome #stayhomestaysafe

“Now is not the time to sell...”⁣ Nope, but now is the time to serve.⁣ ⁣ I used to hate selling, until I:⁣ ⭐️ Got really confident about my offer⁣ ⭐️ Started coming at sales from a place of service⁣ ⁣ I haven’t put out one ad or done much hard selling at all, but my revenue is actually *up* post-quarantine. Why? Because people are looking for solutions to their business problems and I am offering helpful solutions. It really is that simple. Yes, sales funnels and fancy software and complicated processes can help, but I really encourage you to take things back to the basics right now.⁣ ⁣ If you look at your business as one big sales pitch and don’t understand how it’s actually helping people, then that’s probably your problem.⁣ ⁣ What questions do you have about selling? Thinking of putting together a little free training about it soon. 🤗 ⁣ ⁣ ⚡️⁣ ⁣ #salestips #freelancelife #freelancer #socialmediastrategy #socialmediacoach #socialmediaconsulting #marketingconsultant #marketingcoach #digitalmarketing #entrepreneursmindset #entrepreneurship #sellwithsoul #heartforward

What’s the best book you’ve read lately? I’m reading “Built to Sell” right now. 💰⁣ ⁣ #readinglist #bookstagram #entrepreneurship #freelancelife #freelancingfemales #freelancefriday #bookrecommendations #bookworm #marketingtips #digitalmarketing #createcultivate #creativelife #ceolife #ceomindset #fridaymotivation

Turn the sound on if you need a few seconds of calm... 🌊 ⁣ ⁣ Being from the Great Lakes state I feel most at home by the water and always end up crying when I‘m at the ocean. 😂 Can’t wait to see her again. ⁣ ⁣ Happy #EarthDay.

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT LINKEDIN? 🤔⁣ ⁣ It's gotten a bit of a bad rap because of slimy salespeople attacking the DMs too quickly, but don't let them make you believe that's what the platform is all about. And definitely don't follow their lead!⁣ ⁣ For me, it's a decent lead generator and a great place to learn and network... but I've had to put in the work to provide value before asking for anything from anybody.⁣ ⁣ More details and LinkedIn tips in my latest video, link in bio.⁣ ⁣ P.S. Comment below if you think I should become a dating coach instead (I kid, I kid.) 😂⁣ ⁣ 〰️⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ #linkedinprofile #linkedinmarketing #linkedinmarketingtips #linkedintips #personalbranding #personalbrand #marketyourself #marketyourbusiness #freelancetips #freelancelife #createandcultivate #createcultivate #smallbusinessmarketing #smallbiztips #smallbizowner #freelancemarketing #buildyourbrand #businessmarketing #businessmarketingtips
