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.

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!
