Video Tutorial: How to Design a Pin in Canva

Canva is a graphic-design tool that is perfect for bloggers and business owners who don’t have experience with complex design software, such as Adobe. 

Canva uses a simplified drag-and-drop format to ensure your designs always come out looking professional. Not to mention they provide their users with access to millions of photographs, vectors, graphics, fonts, templates and more.

Although these templates can be incredibly helpful, it can also mean your graphics look just like every other Canva user. 

In this blog post, I’m going to show you how to use Canva to create a one-of-a-kind Pin.

Answering Your Most Common Pinterest Questions

Answering Your Most Common Pinterest Questions

Pinterest is my original marketing love. 

It has allowed me to organically build my business, get in front of my audience and grow my profits. 

If you haven’t fallen head over heels for Pinterest, yet. It may be because you still have some lingering questions about what Pinterest is, who it’s for and how you can benefit from using it for your business. 

A few weeks ago I polled my audience on Instagram and asked them what questions they have about Pinterest. Today, I’m going to be answering your most common Pinterest questions.

I Took a Work Sabbatical: Here's What Happened

I Took a Work Sabbatical: Here's What Happened

A few months back, I had this crazy idea to take a work sabbatical. 

I was feeling burnt out, uninspired and a little lackluster about the direction of my business. I knew I needed to take a break and recharge my batteries.

I asked a few friends about taking a break from work and they didn’t understand it. I think that’s true with most people. We live in a “hustle” culture, especially us entrepreneurs, that doesn’t align with taking a break to recharge the battery. We are told to work and work until you reach your goal. 

But, our goals are always being revamped and pushed farther away. So, when are we supposed to take a break? How are we supposed to show up and serve well if we’re running on Empty?

Like a good blogger I went looking for information from other bloggers who had taken a work sabbatical and the only blog posts I could find had to do with maternity leave. 

I was shocked that the only acceptable break we could take had to do with one of the most significant life changes a person can go through.

I decided right there that I was going to take a break, figure out my own plan and share it here with all of you.

It didn’t go as planned and it was definitely a trial and error experiment, but today I’m going to share with you what I did to prepare, what worked (and what didn’t) and what I did with my time away from my business. 

Let’s get into it. 

The Psychology and Methodology Behind Our Rebrand

The Psychology and Methodology Behind Our Rebrand

It has been a while since I’ve made any significant changes to my brand or website and I felt that my business had evolved so much in that time that my brand was beginning to feel out of touch. 

In order to approach tackling a rebrand for myself and my business, I knew I had to really pour some time and energy into doing it right. 

Walking into this process, I knew that I had to make some significant changes to fit my new business direction, but I didn’t want to lose the roots of my business or that existing brand recognition.

It was a big task, but today I’m going to break it down for you and give you the all access behind-the-scenes look. It’s a long story so grab a glass of wine, some cozy sweats and let’s get into it.
