14 years ago this guy and I said, “I do.” That was a damn good decision. Happy anniversary @jjmullen I love you meosi … tied.

Even though I live in SoCal and we don't get big season changes, I love Fall. I miss the changing leaves from back home in Indiana and do my best to get someplace at least once a year where I can see the beauty of the oranges, yellows and reds fall leaves have to offer. 🍂
The temperatures have started to dip a little bit and there's a tiny chill in the air in the morning which has me dreaming of all things fall. Cozy sweaters, boots, football (#GoColts), snuggle time under warm blankets with Otis, fires in my fireplace and comfort food I spend all day Sundays cooking. Next weekend we will break out the Halloween decorations. 🎃 This is my happiest time of year!
What is your favorite thing about fall? .

#Productivity Tip: Sure, alarms and notifications are helpful. ⏰ I would never make it to an appointment on time if my iPhone wasn't chirping at me to get out the door.

But when I need to be heads-down, laser focused on something ... notifications are the enemy.
This week's productivity tip may seem obvious, but for most, it isn't happening. If you want to do your best work in a productive and efficient way, turn off ALL of your notifications during your desk hours.
Take control and stop letting everyone else's needs, comments, etc. be in charge of your time. You are in charge. Turn off those notifications and check everything on your own terms.
Plan to check your email and social media at specific times during the day. If you are a bit panicky about it, check it at the top of every hour.
Stop being distracted by pings and dings, and flashes across your screen. You need the space to think deeply and strategically to truly achieve your goals. Shut off those distracting notifications this week and you will be amazed at your productivity. #simplifyingsocial

It's Friday afternoon and my go-to move is grabbing my husband and a bottle of wine and celebrating the week being d-o-n-e while enjoying our view from the patio.

I bust my ass all week to make sure I'm giving my best to my clients, my family, and my friends. But on Fridays, you bet I'm taking a moment for myself to celebrate and reflect on what I've accomplished during the week.
How are you celebrating the end of the week and rewarding yourself? #simplifyingsocial

If all of your social media posts were suddenly published without your handle or profile picture next to them, would your followers know that post was yours because they know your brand voice?
No? You aren't alone. Check out my latest blog post on why your social media voice matters AND how to find it! (link in bio) #simplifyingsocial

I don’t know about you but I love anything that simplifies my efforts. The less time and thought I have to put into any task, the better.
When you’re planning your social media posts or building out your editorial calendar, do you draw a blank with new ideas for content? What should I post today? Tomorrow? The day after?
The answer to simplifying what to post in social media is your list of topics.
Pick 5 to 7 topics that you can rotate through in order. They should be an extension of your personality and provide value to your followers. For example some of my topics include a social media tip, a productivity tip, coffee or wine, my blog post or my social media course (once a week) and OF COURSE ... Otis my man.
Each week I rotate through those topics in order. This creates value, diversity of posts so I am not constantly spamming with my course and blog, and the best part of all, it simplifies my efforts. No more guessing what to post.
So instead of staring blankly at your screen every time you go to post, you can just reference your topics list and BAM!
What are your 5-7 topics? #simplifyingsocial

I'm so excited for fall for a few reasons, namely pumpkin pie (Seconds, anyone? Just me? Ok, I'm fine with that.), boots, sweaters, fires in my fireplace and football (go, Colts!). BUT this year I'm also really excited about fall because it means my online social media online course, 60 Days to Social Success is launching!
I've been working super hard all summer to bring you the most helpful, jam-packed course possible. If you're looking to take your social media from square one to success in two months, check out the link in my bio and get registered today! #simplifyingsocial

What are you most excited about this fall?

Let's be honest, Mondays are no one's favorite day of the week. Fridays are more my speed.

However, the more focused I get on my goals and accomplishing what I need to do to grow my business, I've stopped hating on Mondays so much.
Instead I use Mondays as a chance to reevaluate and reset every week. I get to my desk early, set my goals for the week, look over my calendar so I have a clear understanding of the week ahead and remind myself that today is the perfect day to crush my goals!

Here's to a kick ass Monday and an amazing week! Work hard and be nice to people. It's simple. #simplifyingsocial

💡 SUNDAY PRODUCTIVITY TIP: Block & Batch!

Blocking out time to batch tasks has made an BIG impact on my productivity levels!
The idea is simple, block out time in your calendar to batch together certain tasks. Block out blog post time in your calendar and do a batch of rough drafts for three or four blog posts. Block out time in your calendar to do a batch of social media posts or to create graphics.
Several meetings throughout the week? Make Wednesday your out of office meeting day. This way you’re already in the car, dressed for the day, hair and makeup on point and can knock out all of your “batched” meetings.
Since your hair and makeup is done, you might as well use that precious commodity to batch a few video tips after your meetings.

Block and batch is my favorite productivity tip. You will be amazed at what you can accomplish when you block out the time and hyper-focus on similar tasks! #simplifyingsocial

My computer has been attached at my hip these last few weeks as I prep to present @flockpresents tomorrow. I have been putting together as much knowledge as I could possibly cram into my 50 minutes session, "Branding and Planning for Social Media Success." Looking forward to meeting other female entrepreneurs tomorrow and knowledge sharing! #simplifyingsocial

Social Media Tip 💡: Instagram is where it's at right now in social media.
Think of Instagram in combination with your website like this:
Your Instagram feed is your storefront window. It’s where the prettiest images of your products go to draw your clients/customers in.

Your website is the the floor of your store. This is where you display all of your products so your clients/customers can purchase them.

Instagram Stories is where you share everything that happens behind the “Employees Only” doors. Show them "inside your brand" in stories to create “Like, Know, Trust”. #simplifyingsocial
