Website 

There is no excuse in 2015 to not have a Website for your Business, with so many options available from free to paid, and even everything done for you options. Below, I share my personal recommendations for Website Domain Name services to Web Hosting. Most importantly you will learn what to avoid and get awesome resources to get you started with your Website.

 

 

Domain Name Services

If you want to support another Black Girl who Rocks, you can purchase your domain name through Websitepalace.com. Ms. Lisa Irby of 2createawebsite will get a commission if you do.

The other popular option to get your domain name is of course GoDaddy.com. Either of these will work and are reputable places I recommend.

 

Hosting Options

 Your web host is where your site is housed on the web and can be free or paid. I highly recommend to pay for your own hosting if you are serious about your side hustle or passion project.

Free Hosting

For beginners that are not committed to their biz idea.

  • WordPress.com
  • Wix.com

 

Paid Hosting:

  • WordPress.org
  • Hostgator.com
  • Bluehost.com
  • GoDaddy.com

Elevate Your Vision- JenaeNicole.com

You probably have heard the old saying “can’t see the forest from the trees”. We all have that one friend with the sorry tail boyfriend or ex, and none of our girls can figure out why she just can’t seem to stop messing with him. Right?

Now we can see it because we are not too close to the situation. That is how we need to think about our Business as well. Sometimes we need to step back and see things from another perspective. Hence today’s topic.

 

Elevate Your Vision

 

 

Quit thinking small, point blank period. If you are ready to take this Passion project to the next level. Just know that you can’t walk where you cannot see.

I want you to stand up, close your eyes and take a step.

Exactly! you are not going to get anywhere fast without Vision. Personally vision has never been a problem for me. As far back as i can remember I’ve always seen much more for my life. For me implementation was my stumbling block.

The best way to make sure you not only see from another level but to also follow through is to get involved with a Mastermind.

Mastermind groups are simply a few people with like minded goals who are willing to commit to keeping each other accountable and open and honest sharing of ideas and support.

Masterminds help you see

  • Different points of view
  • By Elevating mindset
  • Build Relationship and Community

 

 

Expand your territory expect more

  • Be mindful of your vision
  • You are a World Changer
  • Some people don’t have a reference of more

 

Why my website has a view of the city from above

  • From the ground you cant see what’s happening down the road but from above you can see everything
  • Train your eye to see miles down the road as far as you can see
  • Too close to see the reality of the situation
  • Put an expectation bigger that you can ever imagine
  • Anything is possible expand your mindset

 

Everyone will not see  your vision

  • Know you will have dream thieves
  • The reality of the situation doesn’t negate the possibility
  • Never let anyone crush your dream
  • God puts everything you need for you to be successful with the vision

 

What’s your Vision Share it with the Tribe!

What I learned from the best at Podcast Movement 2015

Find Your Niche

I had an awesome conversation with a coworker today about getting her idea about how she could impact the world with her passion.

As I was sharing my great news of actually launching this podcast and submitting to itunes, we got to talking about how to get started with her Side Hustle and getting the ideas focused on one thing at a time.

I totally related to her almost schizophrenic explanation of what she was passionate about. Like most of us I’m sure, have a million and one ideas and people we want to help.

 

Riches are in the Niches

We have all probably heard this or some version of it. Unless you are Walmart, it doesn’t profit us to try to be everything for everybody.

STEP ONE

Decide on one person you want to help. What are they struggling with that you know how to fix, cope , educate …

STEP TWO

How can you best help them?

>Train- teaching program,

> coach/ mentor- show and run the play

> inspire- give words of affirmation

>service- therapy ( physical, mental)

STEP THREE

What is the best way to communicate the help?

>Blogging

> Videos

> Podcast

>Service

 

Advice to my friend…

You work  40, 50 , 60 hours every week to see your Employer’s vision and mission succeed. Don’t you have 2 hours a week to devote to your own Entrepreneurial Legacy? Absolutely!

Take the next day off you have and make a date with yourself to focus solely on what you want to see this business look like.

Take the first step to seeing your dream of Business ownership.

I’m not telling you anything that I haven’t personally dealt with in my own Small Business, and still do sometimes. I promise you as you begin to move like we talked about in Just Start  you will see amazing transformation and growth with your Side Hustle.
