Your Content Is The Foundation to Everything…

What do you think of when someone says content?  Do you only think about social media content? Long form content? Short form content? Is it video? Audio? Blogging? Maybe it’s all of the above. The truth is, it’s none of those. Those are just the different mediums available for you to get your content out […]

Your Content Map = A Totally YOU Plan

Embarrassment alert ahead: Ava Max was my most played artist on my Spotify Unwrapped for 2023. 🤦‍♀️ I blame my 7 year old. And the Barbie soundtrack. 🤷‍♀️It is what it is. Anyhoo… we were listening to her on our way home from Aldi last weekend and the lyrics from Choose Your Fighter said: I […]

Networking for people who don’t like networking

“The crazy thing is, when you have a cool idea, you actually do it. Most people just sit around and talk about it…”  I’m paraphrasing, but that was my friend Michael talking to me at a local coffee shop over a decade ago. He was the program and volunteer coordinator at a local non-profit. I […]

The Three P’s of the New Year…

So I’ve never really stuck with a word of the year, but I love the idea.  One time I joked that my word of the year was “F*ck it.” It’s technically two, but it’s become a mantra for me in terms of letting go of perfectionism that I still say in my head often.  It’s […]

What is Creative Direction in Online Business?

You don’t have to work as hard to sell something to people when they already know it’s awesome. How do you make sure your stuff looks as awesome as you already KNOW it is? 💥 Creative Direction 💥 That might sound like a made up fancy title that I came up with to encapsulate everything […]

Who do you show up on social media for?

There’s a lot going on this month (linked at the bottom) but I have something exciting to share real quick with ya! My client Julie Brown had a reel blow up this week. 66.9k views and more than doubled her followers from around 1.5k to over 3 thousand! 🥳 Technically not “viral” but suuuuuper freaking […]

Consistency and Patience In Online Business

I spoke in a membership last week about how to be more consistent with your content and I did a little trip down memory lane of all my former businesses.  I recorded a podcast about it back in 2021. Check it out if you want to hear me sobbing about all my “failures.” 😭 I […]

How do your brand values & personality type guide your business choices?

I’ve been walking around for like 2 years thinking I was a projector. Ya know Human Design? Turns out I put my birthday into the thingy wrong. Instead of December 9th, I typed December 12th. 😂😅 I’m in ​Jacki Hayes’ Launch Collective​ and she’s been helping us figure out what makes the most sense for […]

Halloween Costumes of Years Past…

As a basic mom, I just wear either my dress with bats on it or my new peachy sweatshirt with a jack-o-lantern face on it when we go trick or treating.  My best friend Natalie (who also has two young kids) dressed up as this old photo of The Rock. Then I started thinking that […]

Getting Feedback While Building Your Business

If you’ve taken a few online courses you know that they can totally help you build your business. But you know what’s a seriously magical combination? 🪄  Courses AND Feedback.  And not just any feedback, feedback from an actual human being who knows you and understands your business.  I’m starting to realize that it’s the […]

How to build a successful online business with a small audience

I just got back from another Friday Morning Dance Party. 👯‍♀️ We’ve dwindled down to 4 regulars. But… those four kids are having a BLAST. 🥳 With such a small group, it’s actually turning out to be really fun. I know their names, they suggest moves, and we all kind of work together to make […]

Innovation, Excitement, & Sustainable Content  

I’ve always been the type of lady to just create something when I see a need for it. There was that one time I flunked my Jazzercise audition because I was dressed too much like the 80s and corporate didn’t really think it was on brand in 2009. 🤷‍♀️ After that, I started my own […]

Can You Give Yourself Permission to Make Less Content?

During my launch last week I added a pink letter to each email. If you kept track and added them all together, you revealed a secret word that scored you a free 30-minute 1:1 strategy session with me when you joined Content Playhouse!  The secret word…. EXHALE. Remember that song in Grey’s Anatomy way back […]

How to Avoid Decision Fatigue in Business

I’ve been thinking about how I’ve been diagnosed with ADHD and yet, I’ve figured out a way to plan my content for Quarters in my business. And I started wondering if that was unusual for someone with ADHD.  “Can ADHD people plan ahead?” 👈 That’s what I Googled. Am I the only one who literally […]

Being More Productive in Business

How hanging with friends can help you get more done I’m talking about the idea of Body doubling. It’s the idea that you have a friend working beside you (in person or virtually) and not even necessarily on the same thing.  It’s like how toddlers play next to each other but not actually together. That’s […]

Plus there’s a quick audio course that’ll give you permission to make less content before we start planning! It’s an […]

Online Business Ain’t Easy…

Ok, so I always talk about how running a business is hard AF, but since I’m also usually talking about my kid sticking a bead up his nose, or recipes I’ve made, or Cocaine Bear… it might seem like I don’t struggle. But I think it’s hard for everyone. Right? I mean, look at all […]

How to Create a More Personal Personal Brand

So I have this thing in my car where I can just say “Hey Spotify…” and then say whatever I want it to play. The other day I said, “Hey Spotify, play songs by The Pixies” but I sorta choked on my spit when I said it. 😅 I think it thought I said “Fity” […]

How Pop Culture Can Influence Our Lives and Businesses

Last week we lost an icon. Or at least he’s an icon in the Seymour household. Paul Reubens. Aka… Pee Wee Herman. I think he deserves a lot of credit for the wacky, zainy, creative spirit that I am today. And I realize that’s a pretty bold statement. Pee Wee’s Playhouse aired from 1986 – […]

Storytelling Content Done Right

I couldn’t decide what to write about this week. I was trying to figure out how to relate that show The Bear to something businessy. Have you seen it? I love it! 🐻😍 Then I was thinking maybe I’d talk about Kelly Clarkson on Watch What Happens Live talking about which emoji she used the […]
