🎉 Happy Friday! 🍪
-
This is a pot of Cookie Dough - raw cookie dough. I made Mr SM walk with me to get this on our last day because I wanted to try this Instagram famous treat!
-
I’ll be honest, we prefer our cookies baked and warm and gooey. It was certainly an experience though, but I don’t think I’ll be eating raw dough again. It was just a bit too sickly.
-
Whilst we were sat outside spooning it in, a very slim New Yorker walked past us and muttered under her breath “geez that’s like 1000 calories”. I imagine she was probably right 😂 -
I’m sure you’re starting your Friday in a slightly more nutritious way, as am I.
-
What’s everyone’s weekend plans? I think we’ll be staying home for a lot of it. Looks like Storm Brian is going to give us a bit of a battering! Which is fine with me as I have several podcasts that need editing!

☕️ The only way to start your day is with a creme brûlée croissant. Don’t you think? 🥐
-
It’s hardly a surprise I came home from NY a little bigger than when I left! 😂
-
I’ve been married almost a month already, the weeks are flying by as we whizz towards Christmas. Are you a fan of Christmas? I’m starting to enjoy that time of year but for a long time I hated it, probably because I was in the thick of it working on the shop floor and it was exhausting and very stressful. This year I’m going to take some time off and shut up shop a week before and not come back until the New Year and I’m really looking forward to some time enjoying our first Christmas as Mr and Mrs.
-
Speaking of shutting up shop my diary is filllling up super fast, between my Festive Fortune programme, and my Intensive Days {now added to the website rather than being a secret service that people only knew about it they contacted me! 😂}, I’m running out of space to fit new clients in, so if you want to work with me this side of Christmas then get your skates on ⛸.
-
I’m also starting to book in January Intensive Days and am looking into some group workshops across the U.K. Join the Small and Mighty community via my bio link to be added to my newsletter and first to hear of new events and additions. 🔗👆🏻

Happy Sunday!💐
-
What are you up today? I have some errands to run, thank you cards to write and I may possibly even squeeze in a nice long dog walk... if I can convince Monty to get up! 🙈

✨ Latergram! Today I’ve been teaching a workshop at @herostockbridge to an amazing group of highly talented business owners. Today’s focus was on “How to Build Your Brand on Instagram”, we talked about know, like, trust, how to build a community, what to share {and what not to}, how to take better smartphones photos and loads more!
-
🚗 I’m taking this workshop on the road next year - if you would be interested in hosting an Instagram workshop in your space, then send me an email {link at the top}.
-
I’m back home now and about to crash out with my new copy of @91magazine and a brew. ☕️

Hands up who doesn’t always truly believe in themselves? 🙋🏼
-
As a solopreneur you have to be your own wingwoman. There’s no pep talk from the boss, or reminder from your colleagues that you’re totally awesome at what you do. You are your boss and you are your colleagues. Only you can stop yourself sinking on to the sofa and into a Netflix coma when things don’t seem to be going your way.
-
Being self employed I’ve fallen into this trap many times. Imposter syndrome comes and grips my throat and makes me feel stupid and like I shouldn’t be running a business, it’s incredibly self destructive.
In the last month, I’ve noticed that I am feeling that way less and less. Partly I think because I have some amazing friends that tell me to get over myself 😂 and partly because of you wonderful people. Oh and because of a few exciting things in the pipeline. 🎉
-
If you’re having a moment today where you’re lacking in self belief, I want you to sit back and write down three nice things that people have said about your abilities {sadly “nice hair” or “eyeliner on fleek” doesn’t cut it here, we’re serious businesswomen 💁🏼} or things you have accomplished lately and then I want you to read them aloud and stick them somewhere you can see them. Every time you have a flickering moment of self doubt, read them again! No joke, Helena @theguidetogrowth has me saying “I am an Instagram Guru” daily! 😂
-
Let me know how you get on!

📸 This amazing jacket {and photo} is by the incredibly talented Daisy of the independent brand @denimandbone. Denim and Bone’s ideology is that beauty is within everything. 💕 Go check them out for my #followfriday #fridayintroductions

🎉 Happy Friday! Who wants a Cronut?? 🍩🥐
-
I’ve had such a lovely flurry of new followers, and I’m assuming a lot have come from the #smallandmightypodcast! 👋🏻 Thanks for listening and coming to join my small and mighty community! -
As it’s #fridayintroductions I thought I’d take the opportunity to introduce myself!
-
👩🏼‍💻I’m Sam and I live just outside London in the leafy borough of Richmond-Upon-Thames.
-
👫🐶I live my with my husband and our miniature dachshund @socialmouthmonty
-
🗽We recently got married in New York and if you want to be nosey, it’s a couple of photos back in my gallery.
-
🐶 @socialmouthmonty comes to all my meetings with me unless it’s inappropriate. Did you know? Stroking a dog releases feel-good hormones that help calm and relax you and make you more open to new ideas and change? Therefore he is the perfect cure for a nervous or anxious client.
-
Speaking of clients, my business centers around helping independent retailers and brands with social marketing. I coach business owners on how to find their voice, speak to their community, build trust and convert! Boom! I draw on 15 years retail experience and running social media campaigns for Global brands!
-

~ retail ~
-
Lots of people ask me “why retail? Why do you like helping shops?” and apart from stating that retail is super important to our economy, the other reason is because, well, I love shopping! 🙊 😂
-
Mr SM can certainly attest to that!
-
From a young age I was always interested in shops. I liked to play post office and green grocer and then as I got older I ran my own imaginary fashion label called “i Line” {no idea why or where it came from but I even made my own headed paper which I then photocopied at my dads office}. As soon as I could I started working in customer service and eventually in retail and I loved it. I wanted my own shop, the recession put an end to my dream, BUT I’m getting to support other people with their dream and I actually think I’m better suited to that anyway. Hearing stories from businesses that they’ve “sold out” of something after changing their social strategy is just the best news!
-
This photo is a picture of the French brand @sezane that has opened its first store outside its Paris Showroom in New York - it has created buzz and hype through Instagram - I haven’t seen any other advertising for it but on here. I first became aware of @sezane through influencer marketing on Instagram {and have shopped with them for the last 2/3 years} and I learnt about the showroom the same way - and obviously went and paid a visit.
-
👀 Don’t overlook the power or Instagram, it’s more than a place to just showcase your product offering and split your website into bitesize pieces. It’s a powerful marketing tool that can completely transform your business!
-
👉🏻There’s still space on my festive fortune Instagram 6 week programme - sign up by Friday and join 11 other retailers/creators/markers all ready to take the next step with their marketing and grow their Instagram with profitable results.
