“ There is only one success: To be able to spend your life in your own way. ”
— Christopher Morley
I have learned many techniques and strategies since starting Eco-Vegan Gal in 2008. Almost everything has been the result of trial and error, reading books, taking classes and going to conferences. I’ve always wanted a mentor to help guide me, answer my questions and bounce ideas off of because I thought it would give me a hand up. Funny enough, instead of finding a mentor, people came to me for mentorship.
In the past 7 years, I’ve done countless consulting jobs on social media, website building and brand building. I’ve taught classes for BlogHer Food and Rouxbe, spoke on panels for Fitness Magazine and Blog Well Summit, been interviewed for magazines (Laika Magazine) books (Vegan Business Book) and websites (highimpactblogging.com), co-founded the Reel Influencer brand and podcast, launched mastermind groups and consulted with some extremely successful companies and people. Now I’m asked for business advice on a weekly basis.
I’ve discovered that everyone has a roadblock holding them back from larger success. It’s usually one of three things: lack of knowledge, lack of strategy or lack of confidence. Sometimes it’s all three. I’ve noticed that many people are great at creating content but not great about marketing it and making money. When it comes to the business side of things, creators feel lost, overwhelmed and don’t know where to start. Many give an excuse like, “my brain doesn’t work that way” or “I’m not good at that.”
No matter what it is, I’ve found that what everyone wants is support and guidance. They want someone laying out the steps for them and cheering them on. That’s exactly why I created the Pick My Brain sessions.
- For content creators, I’m giving you the down low on how to turn your passion into a career and make a bigger impact on the world.
- For businesses, I’m sharing everything I know about how to take your brand to the next level, maximize your impact and make profits.
- And if you’re just starting out, I’ll help you find your path, build your audience, stand out from the crowd and stop wasting your time on tactics that won’t get you anywhere.
Whatever stage you’re in, you’ll receive practical, realistic advice broken down into actionable steps that will help you figure out what’s getting in the way of taking things to the next level. I’m also going to share the mistakes I’ve made and what I would do if I could start all over. You’ll hear the advice I’d give to myself 6 years ago and receive the mentorship I wish I had back then.
Together we’ll examine how you’re doing things, find the room for improvement and brainstorm strategies specific to you. If you choose to go with the group setting, you’ll also learn from others generate ideas. Maybe you’ll even want to chime in with tips to help them think outside the box! Trust me, that support will do wonders. You’ll feel empowered, excited and overflow with ideas.
