Hello, everyone, Cherene Francis here. And I'm so excited to have this special guest of mine. She's actually a long time friend of mine. We've known each other since our daycare days when I was three years old. And now she has really evolved as a woman in leadership. She is the co-founder of Pitch Better, a company that seeks to help small business owners, especially women and minorities, build their business, scale their business and get...
By now, you may have realized that you needed to scrap some of your 2020 New Years Day strategies due to the worldwide pandemic and other sensitive issues that have emerged over the past couple of months in March of 2020.
As a digital marketer, it was very tempting to throw in the towel and avoid all the news circulating on social media; however, this isn't smart.
Many great entrepreneurs get a big break or launch highly profitable business ventures during economic hardship.
In this blog, I share what I am doing to ensure success in my business.
Before the global pandemic and quarantine, my business was 50% offline/local and %50 percent online/digital. Now that I am a full-time home-schooling teacher, daycare provider on top of my role as CEO, I needed to make a ton of changes. To accommodate these changes, I have...
Yes! Contrary to everyone jumping on Zoom, I decided to minimize calls and filter out...

Instead of thinking “How can I get more clients,” ask yourself
"How can I give to more people."

She's prim and proper
So righteous and meek.
She won't make a move
'Til it's done to a T.
She shuffles her papers.
She scrolls through her screens.
Checking her facebook and
Liking those memes.
The time keeps on ticking.
The day turns to night.
Another one past,
But it's still "just not right."
Oh, talented one,
Just lead with your heart.
When will you learn
It's okay just to start?

Go and publicly announce to everyone, friends, family and colleagues, that you're about to take a leap and there is a very high chance that you'll mess things up. That way, when you do, you can still be right and say, "I told you so!"It's mind trickery for yourself. It lets you feel more in control.
You're a human being, and stuff happens. When did you learn that you had to get it right the first time? When you were a baby learning to walk, I'm sure you didn't have to walk on your first try. Why is it that...
Before I started marketing my personal brand - that is my face, image and likeness on social media - I was scared as heck!
You better betchya that I used logos and stock photos cause I was scared about putting myself out there when I just got started.
Why in the world would I want my high school bullies to still be in touch with me - LOL?
That's the irony of social media. A medium designed to enrich our lives can also be a massive head and heartache.
Aside from having family and friends pondering your every move, dealing with all the flash and glamour can be overwhelming.
Do you ever scroll through social media and leave feeling icky?
Especially in regards to being more present for your business - ever feel like you're not doing enough?
You'll be outworked by the competition?
"My gosh their posts!! They're always more...
I get it.
When you're growing your personal brand, and you start...
Are you marketing to get clients now or later?
In my mastermind group, a client asked how she can enroll a prospect in the next 2 weeks or less.
I took a look at her current marketing strategy and realized that a lot of her current business activities included strategies that would take 3 - 6 months to see results.
She was shocked when I pointed this out because she needed cash fast!
Internet Marketing and advertising is a great way to generate a stream of clients on demand. I experience it in my own business and the business of those I coach, however, you need to ensure you have all the systems and business structures in place to make that happen.
If you don't have all the systems and processes you need, then you'll need to do some traditional forms of marketing and sales to enroll a client now.
If you want to know how to immediately ramp up your cash flow in the next couple weeks or even days, this is for you.
To get clients now, implement...
