One of the challenges that you face as an entrepreneur is understanding the difference between marketing & sales.
Marketing is about relationships 🤝and sales is about transactions. Simple put, marketing is enthusiasm transferred to the customer which gives them inspiration to buy.
Expecting customers to get excited about your product without your help is expecting too much.

Yesterday I was given a polite, “no” about something. It brought me back to my manufacturing days when I was frequently told “no” and reached dead-ends almost weekly. It took me months of solitary GRIND to figure out how to get my product manufactured with some guidance from a friend @sboruff ❤️ I will not let yesterday’s “no” stop me. I reminded myself that if I had let the “no’s” get me down, I wouldn’t be where I am today with this business. If anything, it fuels me to work smarter and harder. Looking back, each “no” just lead me one step closer to that “yes” to make Time Snap a reality. #mamaonamission#wonttakenoforananswer#snapyourmilestones

This little chalupa makes me laugh every day. I wonder what she’s thinking, I wonder what she has to say. But I know for certain when she starts talking, its going to be non-stop. It’s amazing that at 3 months these little humans can have such personality😏 She truly completes and compliments our family of 5. And I’m not sure what I’d be doing right now without her (probably sleeping but where’s the fun in that)
Today I was reminded to train smarter not longer!!!!! How many of us think we need to train in the gym for 2-3 hours a day to get results or burn 200+ calories?!? Well i just burnt 248 calories in 23 minutes 🤔

Ceremony prep is always some of my favorite moments and images. It's the chance for me to say, okay breathe. Take it in. Stop look around. Look how your friends are looking at you, center yourself. #erikamillsphotography

This is such a fab fabric combo for our reversible cotton and baby cord rompers. The colours are gorgeous in the woodland fabric.
“Girls don’t make passes and boys that pass gasses.” 🤣🤣🤣 Here’s what we use Purification for: ✅ eliminate kitchen odors
✅ eliminate teenage boy stank
✅ with baking soda as a carpet freshener
✅ throat comfort this winter
✅ dryer balls for laundry
✅ cotton ball in garbage can
✅ repel insects
✅ comfort from insect bites
✅ ear discomfort
✅ stinky shoes/feet
This blend of citronella, lemongrass, tea tree, rosemary, myrtle, and lavender create a fresh, clean fragrance that elimites odors completely. #dropsofblessing
Why use an air freshener in an aerosol can that masks odors but releases toxins that attack your lung function and causes headaches, when you can diffuse an essential oil continually and get health benefits? 🤷🏻♀️ #dropsofblessing#purification#stink
Four radical questions you need to ask your soul today to live a more embodied life:⭕️+ is it time for me to receive rather than give it heal others right now? ⭕️+ am I actually living in trust or still trying to control and acting seperate? ⭕️+ am I acting in true alignment with my womb/gut, Heart and higher consciousness ⭕️+ what am I hanging on to that’s past it’s due date ? Where am I still saying yes when it’s a no.

Like many people in the service-based industry, when I started my first business as a #yogateacher, I wanted to reach & teach EVERYONE. Eager to please and afraid of offending or excluding anyone, I chose to cast my net wide and unsurprisingly my classes DIDN’T magically fill to capacity.. When I DID have clients turn up, my classes ended up a bit all over the shop because I was trying to cater to everyone from super pregnant mums to advanced yogis desperate to bust out some hard core pretzel action.
My marketing message was super unclear, my classes got confusing and the small amount of clients I managed to convince to take my classes simply didn’t come back.
Double tap if you can relate…. The truth of the matter is when you try and speak to everyone, you end up reaching no one.
Nailing your niche helps you to get really specific with your marketing. It allows you to focus on your message and get clear on the value you provide to your people. It also helps your (future) clients find you more easily, get to know you better and grow to love you faster because they know exactly what you’re about.
When I FINALLY gained some clarity over my niche, I reached the people I really wanted to teach and hey presto my class numbers continued to climb week after week. (Who knew??). There was less stress because I knew how to choreograph my classes, I was able to give my people what they wanted and they came back - with friends in toe.
I can promise you that nailing your niche doesn't JUST benefit the health coaches or yoga teachers. It's a skill required by pretty much anyone in the biz game.
If reaching your ideal client (or even figuring out what the heck this even means) is something you need a little help with then I’ve got JUST what you need. I am hosting a FREE 4 day ‘Nail Your Niche’ Mini-Course. Want in? (of course you do). Give me a hell yes in the comments

Most people spend their best years working for money, not really understanding what it is they are working for? .
The thought of working a 9-5 for 40 plus years, 5 days a week is is not what I call living life. .
Lucky enough to get 3-4 weeks off per year and maybe, just maybe get a few extra bucks per hour in a pay rise. .
The idea of doing what I like, when I like sounds a lot more appealing to me & helping others do just the same! .
The freedom to work location free, on my time, spending time with the fam & yet still achieving $23 232 in sales within 10 days is next level. .
Tomorrow & someday is just a form of procrastination. .
Waiting for the right time will NEVER come! .
It’s about taking action & making moves!
Results are not guaranteed, some don’t make anything at all because they can’t manage their time effectively or simply don’t follow through. .
For those who want it tho.... The online space is on fire if it’s the lifestyle you desire x

Miami and Jamaica 🇯🇲 in 2 weeks!!! I’m literally hitting the gym and wrapping my tummy and thighs every 3 days lol 😂!!!
I’m so glad that in my last weeks of pregnancy I got a burst of energy and made some freezer meals for after the babies came! Turns out there are lots of freezer friendly, vegetarian dinners on my site. I put them together in a post so you can make them too ❤️. They are perfect for pregnancy, busy days or if you have a friend in need 🙏🏻. The link is in my profile 👆🏻.

Like Entrepreneurship, single parenting is a roller coaster journey with sensitive and even grave choices every day.
I have to shovel my insanely steep driveway on the side of a hill or else I’ll never get the car out without slipping and turning it into ice.
My son is sick and our last moments before going to his daddy’s are spent with him screaming for me to come inside and take care of him.
Double the work. Half the hands.
It feels so alone sometimes. 😰 And that’s okay. It’s not all rainbows. And that’s okay, too.
Primarily, it’s right before he goes to his dads that I am most exhausted.
And also, it’s hard to enjoy and sink into the rest that I need when he heads off to his daddy’s because I miss him desperately while he is there.
I have a few choices in this moment.
I can react and yell back at him as he stands in an open doorway screaming at me to come back inside.
Or I can just turn my music louder and try to put a smile on my face.
I can model for him a strong confident woman who can handle these storms in stride.
I can give up or give in.
Or I can keep my shit together and finish strong.
No matter what, I do my best. And there’s nothing shameful about a few bittersweet, exhausted tears along the way.

This 3rd pregnancy with 2 toddlers has made me feel tired compared to my previous pregnancies, not to mention being a stay-at-home wife + mom. It irks me when people think we have it easy yet they have no idea! It’s not just “staying home”, it’s making a home and getting everything done like cooking, cleaning, vacuuming, washing, tidying up, bending, carrying, but most importantly disciplining, training, playing, & being with my (low-tech) toddlers 24/7 all while taking care of a husband and fulfilling all other duties always wishing for more hours in the day to get things done. So what do I do? Wear my Super Mama shirt on days when I need an extra pick-me-up when I’m feeling far from Super! And yesterday, I did something I never do... I napped during my babies’ nap time and you know WHAT? It felt pretty darn GOOD! I didn’t feel guilty for not taking “advantage” of the extra time to clean, put the house in order, work on my blog, work on my daily To-Do list etc etc ETC!!! And it made me feel SUPER! Plus, even when I don’t feel like a super mama, these little humans somehow think I am. 🦸♀️ And when they stare into my eyes with that big ol’ smile, they make me believe I AM! 💪 So to all my mama friends, YOU ARE SUPER no matter what does or doesn’t get done today! 💛 #3under3#ARaadStory [Tee: @ARaadShop]

"I wish I was pregnant again". . .
"Am I doing this right?". . .
"I'm so tired". . .
"Is she even getting enough milk from me?" These are the thoughts that come through every day.
Social media and today's society have a tendency to make new moms doubt their instincts. From organic to probiotics for babies, to breastfeeding to supplementing with formula, to wearing belts to get your figure back and losing weight. . . Every single decision that is made seems to carry a huge weight of judgment from the world.
My baby is now 12 days old and undeniably she melts me away. Even when I am swimming through sleepless nights and dozens of questions. But none of it is easy. I knew this coming into it. I am 28 years old and I planned this baby with my husband. I read dozens of books, my pregnant insomnia clocked HOURS on YouTube and Google - but nothing, NOTHING can fully prepare you for the days that come after birth.
I wish we were a little more lenient, more understanding, more empathetic and more open about the truths of postpartum.
It's okay to feel, to cry, to be tired, to be hurt and in pain, to be afraid, to be angry, and frustrated - to scream out for help and accept that you are human - an amazing human who carried another human for 9 months, a human who will protect and love a stranger from the moment he/she comes out into this huge world.
