This is just one of the versions of a productive day because we know - productivity is actually very personal. Some of us get more productive only after 12PM, some can rock it starting 5AM. What is your day like? When do you wake up? When do you go to bed? How do you organize your work and rest? Share!!! #productiveday#thehustleisfemale
It (was) World Snake Day (yesterday)!
For those who don’t know I have a bush viper tattooed on my left arm in nuance Japanese style surrounded by peonies/clouds. .
For my plethora of tattoos, a majority of them have little meaning (oops). This is one I claim not to have any meaning behind, but there’s actually a whole story behind it. Aka I don’t feel like explaining it to Susan in the grocery store after telling 5 other people in different aisles. In certain cultures, snakes and peonies can represent springtime. I wanted to get something to represent me emerging from the “winter” aspect in my life into the next season of my life, aka springtime. .
"I believe in process. I believe in four seasons. I believe that winter's tough, but spring's coming. I believe that there's a growing season. And I think that you realize that in life, you grow. You get better."

Also, not everyone wants to talk about their tattoos so don’t be annoying. And please don’t ever touch someone when looking at their tattoos without asking. *the more you know logo*

Current state of my desk: crazy! I typically love my space to be clean and organized, but I have a soft spot for a messy creative space. There’s just something about a used, colorful paint palette and a bunch of paintings spread all over ❤️

Emojis can make your social media posts really stand out, but not always in the right way. In celebration of #worldemojiday let's talk a little bit about how to effectively use emojis in your profiles and posts.
You want your emojis to enhance your posts, set the tone, and make text look more visually appealing to your audience, they're kitschy in the best way. But when we add too many emojis or unattractive emojis we quickly take our posts from from visually stunning to a post we scroll right past. Here's 5 tips to effectively use emojis in your next post.
Summer Sangria 🍹⠀
One of my favorites from the new soaps! It makes me think of laying on a beach in Greece with a drink in my hand. #relaxthedayaway ⠀
I’m a beach person, my husband is a mountain person. So we’re compromising on trips and taking turns choosing where we go lol. This year we’re seeing Ireland! Which I’m actually super excited about 😂. But I’d almost rather go back to Greece. ⠀
So tell me, what’s your dream vacay? Mountains? Beach? Snow? Exploring or relaxing?

DO YOU HAVE A GREAT FOOD CONCEPT BUT GET STUCK ON DEVELOPING YOUR MENU?
Here’s what to keep in mind:
✅Your menu should only be as big as the space you have to operate in. Don’t add fried items if you don’t have room to throw a fryer or stove with a dutch oven onsite at that pop-up location.
✅Different venues call for modified menus. Again, know what space and equipment you have/need to work with to execute your best dishes in that environment.
✅You should have signature dishes that stay on your menu that you know you’d be able to acquire the ingredients for at approx. the same cost throughout the year.
✅If you like changing your items around, make sure you are using seasonal ingredients to keep your food cost low.
✅Your menu should be able to be executed by the amount of staff you have onsite given the volume of people your food biz pop-up experiences, whether that’s you alone or a bigger team.
✅Take items off the menu that aren’t selling as well. Don’t keep buying more inventory when you aren’t moving it!
✅Try new items out with your ideal customers, especially those you’ve built a relationship with, and take their feedback seriously.
✅Keep it simple! Showcase your best food + creative point of view while keeping your food cost low and profit margins appropriate for your biz. Ask yourself where you can EDIT while not taking away from the deliciousness + impact of your dish.
What is your signature menu item that people just love? Let me know in the comments below!
WHEN AND HOW SHOULD YOU WORK WITH INFLUENCERS? PART 1.
I think when it comes to product/service launch, influencer marketing is the best option in terms of paid promotion. The reasons are very simple. Nobody knows your brand yet! You need to build trust and trust can’t be built with a Facebook ad. In my opinion, if your product has already been on the market for at least a year, you can go ahead and start doing ads, but in the initial stage, I’d definitely go ahead and build fruitful collabs with influencers first.
Now, you should know that there are two types of collabs. The first one is short-term, you pay the influencer, he/she posts something about you and it’s done. If you’re willing to order paid promotion within a group of influencers in a certain niche, say, food bloggers, this option might be a nice fitting one. You can order a single paid post to be done by each blogger in a group and create a “PR buzz” within the niche. This might generate a one-time boost of sales, even PR coverage, and a solid introduction of your brand to your potential audience. But this is still like a one-time shot. It fits special one-time causes or campaigns.
The second collab type is more fruitful in terms of long-term results. Here, you may not have to select 5 or 10 or even more bloggers, you can start with one, but a really visible one. Not just a blogger, but a real opinion leader in your niche. And you can offer him/her to become your brand ambassador with a potential of getting commission revenue from sales of your product (technically he/she becomes your affiliate; you may pay him/her for one or several paid posts, but their price might not be as high as in the first type of influencer marketing campaign because you will offer your influencer a chance to earn commission from your sales in a long-term perspective which gives them a long-term interest in promoting your brand whenever they get a chance to do so to gain commission. This way influencers become your PR managers, advocates, whatever you call him/her. Bigger brands are usually the ones who practice the second partnership type. (Swipe to read ⏩ the rest of the post)

Inspo: @Brunaaaaa's "Let That Shit Go" book. Link in her bio to order!
What does it mean to be a business owner? 365 days ago I wouldn’t have truly had an answer for you. Now if you asked me I feel like I could write a book and I know I still have so much more to learn! Being a mama and starting your own business within a year of having your first baby and then your second baby is NOT easy but is anything worth fighting for ever easy? 🤷🏼♀️ Heck no!
Within this first year I have not only learned how to start & grow a successful chiropractic business but also conquered many of my personal fears and insecurities. I’m a stronger doctor, mama and human being because of it! Through the blood, sweat, and tears in the last year I have learned so so much and can’t wait to take all those lessons with me to California. Thank you so much to everyone both patients and supporters alike for cheering me on. Also, a huge shout out to my husband who has been there through it all; my very happiest moments of helping others this past year and at my very weakest to pick me up and tell me to keep pushing. Cheers to year two and all the new changes it will bring! 💕
