Now that I’ve been doing this for a while, I look back a lot on how scary it was to start my own business. There were a lot of “What If” moments. More times than not when you search the #entrepreneur or #smallbusiness hashtags you get women selling oils and leggings or people with expensive cars and tons of posts about Grind and Hustle.
Can I be honest with you? My experience has been nothing like that. While I do work a lot, our business isn’t an MLM and I don’t drive expensive cars and go on rants about hustle.
60% of what I do is hard work. 20% is relationships. 15% is social media and marketing. And that last 5% has been luck.
I’m thankful for a wife who let me take a risk on a small business.
Dear content creator, working with brands is not the only way to build a business. Working with brands is great and I’ve loved co-creating and bringing to life exciting concepts with our partners. But what I love more than co-creation is having OPTIONS and any good business person will tell you that you need to have multiple options for generating revenue.
Based on my experience, here are the four major categories for how you can develop a revenue generation strategy as a content creator:
- Content: Creating content for yourself and others.
- Community: Monetizing the audience you have acquired.
- Commerce: Selling products to the audience you have acquired.
- Experiences: Hosting events online and offline for your audience.
These are the high level categories because in each of these categories you can have multiple products or services to different types of clients. The goal is not to be distracted by having too many random ventures but to think critically about your skills and how you can maximize revenue from it.
If this is something you’re interested in learning more about, comment I Want To Learn More on this post and I will send you a DM with a link to a webinar on Saturday.
During the webinar I will break down each category and share some revenue examples that you can start to implement for yourself.

I remember this day as if it were yesterday. My son was only weeks away from leaving for college.
My 6-figure corporate job was now a thing of the past. Several years prior I became a widow and had poured most of my time and effort afterwards into being Mom.
Now with a new life-changing event upon me, I was faced with the inevitable question, “What’s next for Jacqueline?” I struggled to define what my life would look like outside of motherhood. As I stood there staring at the Atlantic Ocean, I pondered that question, over and over in my head.
In a few weeks, I was headed to San Diego for some personal development, self-care and to begin my journey back to me. (Swipe left). That was 2014.
Since then, I have been committed to inspiring and empowering other Moms to “Recapture Your YOU!” through my signature coaching program called, “My Journey Back To Me.” What a joy it is to discover YOUR purpose, attain a greater sense of fulfillment, and subsequently discover ways to serve others with it.

Newbie #project managers, listen up. Eleonora Pappalardo, PMP, has some words of wisdom: On any project, #commitment from the team requires a meeting of the minds (and maybe some compromise), says the senior consultant for internet of things customer onboarding at Vodafone, Milan, Italy.
And who would she look to for advice? If she could shadow one person for a day, it would be former @yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer. “Her résumé shows how women can succeed in both the technology and business worlds,” Ms. Pappalardo tells PM Network®. 📸: @alberto_bernasconi
