Are you worth the investment? Job Optional Podcast - JenaeNicole.com

Are you really worth the investment?

It’s funny that I’ve seen so many “Experts” on various topics with no true expertise. Now please hear my  heart, i’m not bashing on anybody’s grind. Just making the point.

Yes the school of thought to get the Minimal Viable Product out and tweak as you go approach is good. I just want us to be careful to not misrepresent our current Value proposition.

Why this is important to you?

Imagine you are on the other side of your business at the customer point of view. If you are teaching something you really have no true expertise in.. you will lose trust.

Remember trust is always earned and once lost it’s almost impossible to recapture. So, let’s be honest and transparent up front.

Until I began investing and cultivating in me, did I see the forward motion of my life and business.

The lesson today is to put in the work up front and invest in perfecting your craft and become a true expert in your field before claiming yourself as an expert.

Key Takeaways

 

You can’t walk where you can’t see

  • We must have a vision of what Business we want before we move.
  • The whole picture is not necessary to start
  • if you cant see it you can’t show it to anyone else

 

Everybody wants to be Influential

  • From the smallest to the greatest of us we all want to be heard.

 

Sacrifices will have to be made

  • Time is the most valuable investment we use getting started
  • We may have to wait and watch certain shows

                                                                                                                                     

 The Path will show itself with open doors

  • Be faithful over your gift
  • Nothing happens by accident
  • Everyone will not resonate with you, what’s for you is for you.

 

What are you doing today to invest in yourself?

  • Invest. Learn. Teach

Overworked and Underwhelmed on Job Optional Podcast with Jenae Nicole

Overworked & Underwhelmed

 

 

Side Hustle Time Management 

Not only do we have the same business goals and objectives as well as home and family obligations we have a full time job that is a monster in and of itself to manage our time with.

 

And yes we chose this life and we can quit and throw in the towel at any moment if we want, but not us girls because we are World Changers and we never quit!

 

I know getting started with your Side Hustle has not been easy we feel overworked

With our ever growing to do list – website, networking, social media, content, products or services, clients, etc.

 

Underwhelmed with results so far, not seeing the amazing results some of your Entrepreneurial friends?

 

Your gift is for you; you were hand-picked for this mission, only you have the gifts, skills and talent to finish it.

 

But I digress this morning as my Pastor  was speaking about the Time we have here being a gift with an expiration date; being accountable with how we spend it.

 

So let that sink in them 2 bombs he dropped, we all know our time here will end for certain no one here is invincible and will live forever as much as the movies are selling that dream these days. As far as we know (side eye).

 

But he made such an impact on me today with saying we have time for what we want with the analogy of if you got free ticket to your favorite xyz you would find the time right oh all of a sudden a gap opened up in your calendar 🙂

 

For every yes we say, there is a no to something else, let’s just make sure we value our Relationships and don’t miss out on what’s really important.

 

App I use for email sanity is called Unroll.me.  Check it out, I promise you’ll thank me later. Also it’s FREE!

 

Key Takeaways

  • Time is a Gift with an expiration date
  • Time is the currency of Relationships
  • Make time for what matters most

Getting started with Facebook Fan Pages. www.jenaenicole.com

Getting started with Facebook Fan Pages 

 

What is a Facebook Fan Page and why do you need one? A Fan Page is a page you can create for free on Facebook to promote your business or Passion Project. The benefit of having a Fan Page on Facebook verses promoting yourself on the regular news feed is so you don’t spam your friends with information that may not interest them. It also lends credibility to your business. A fan Page is a good starting option for folks just starting up a new business especially if it’s a “trial” project to see what kind of interest is out there for the business model.

In today’s episode we cover the best practices to do when getting started with using Facebook Fan Pages, as well as some really common mistakes to avoid.

 

Key Takeaways

 

To Do’s

  • Link your Website
  • Content is super important
  • Add Value
  • Post lots of pictures and video. live streaming services like Periscope and Blab make it super easy to utilize video on your page.
  • Add a CTA “Call to Action” button on your page. It can be anything you want your Tribe to do, such as sign up for your email list or subscribe

 

No No’s to Avoid

  • Do not SPAM your friends with your Fan Page. Yes, the Fan Page is for boosting your business, but be mindful not to only post “buy my xyz product/service”.
  • Do NOT auto subscribe your friends to your page. send them an invitation to like your page once it’s set up.
  • Do not post negative comments or go on a  rant.
  • Post helpful content for your peeps on  a regular basis.
