If you're planning a Pop-up store, you should do a few things in advance. First, ensure your Pop-up shop concept is ready to roll out the gate.

Ever stopped working for some time and couldn't get started again? Well, everyone has. If you took a break for about two weeks and took a break for about three months if you took a break after the holiday, you probably feel like you lost all the potential clients and revenue and now need to start from scratch. But it's not true. Don't let fear control you.
This Facebook Live (Vlog) is all about restarting your business after taking a pause.
If you feel like you're starting all over again, join me today inside our Create Share Educate for Entrepreneurs Facebook Group, I'll be Live, and I'll give you my best tips on how to press that restart button.
You know that it's hard to keep going when things don't work out as an entrepreneur. But, when you are resilient, you can continue to bounce back.
Maintaining a positive attitude enables you to maintain resilience in the face of failure and draws on three components: knowing that things will eventually work out; self-efficacy (the belief that it is up to you to make things work); and hope (the idea that things will work out).
Did you know that there are days when even the most successful business has to deal with tough customer service situations? For example, a client might turn down your offer because they have signed up for another similar product. If this happens, how do you handle the situation? Do you feel anxious and down, or do you remain calm? What will you do?
The solution is resilience. You need to become resilient so that these situations won't knock you off track and make them stop being a problem for you. With resilience, they can even become opportunities!
My friend, Annabel Kandiah, a life coach, author, and speaker who helps women balance their lives, unleash their true potential, and allow them to live the life they want is taking over our Tuesday Facebook Live tomorrow morning.
Her mission is to help entrepreneurs become the best versions of themselves.
I personally invited Annabel to speak about the Seven Oola Accelerators that will help you get to your goals faster.
She will talk about “Blockers” which are traits that we subconsciously use to keep ourselves from living an amazing life. “Blockers” are the everyday responses, beliefs, and self-talk that keep us from pursuing our goals and focusing on our future. They’re the junk that keeps us from showing up fully, thinking of ourselves as worthy, or asking for what we need in order to be happy.

Hey there! I'm Faye; I am passionate about helping moms find their passion and purpose while raising a family. When I was a kid, I saw how my mother tries to do everything to be successful while raising four daughters by herself. Talk about a superhero! Watching my mother's effort made me want to work hard, too. When I decided to pursue my passion as an entrepreneur, I did it for two reasons. I did it partly because I dreamed of creating opportunities for others, especially for all the moms. Still, I also did it for my future kids and legacy to future generations. Going after the things we want in life is scary, but creating a plan, and having support can make it all possible.
I'll share a small secret. One of my favorite ways to stay motivated is to write down my why and hang it up. I put it on my mirror. In my bedroom. On the door of the fridge. Wherever I'm likely to see it because being an entrepreneur can be hard, and so a constant reminder of...
I get this question a lot when I am coaching Social Media Marketing. Can I turn my social media followers into a revenue channel?
Being successful online is challenging but doable. To make followers into a revenue channel, you have to have the right marketing strategy. When I decided to use social media as one of my funnels in building my network for my business, I worked with a coach. My coach used to say this: "Build it, give value and help people get the results, and enough will join."
I have been building relationships with all the people I have on my network. Some of them took some of my offers, classes, and training, and some even work one-to-one with me. How awesome is that, right? If you noticed, I used the word some because we all know that there's a certain percentage of people in your network that will mostly convert, and the rest will take time. There's no secret that building relationships are the key to whether they will take your offer or not. So simple, right?
Any of these sounds very familiar? Can you relate?
Let me share my story with you.
The year 2015, when I started my first Direct Sale business. I was working fulltime, and I needed a side-hustle that I could do from home. I was so excited about the product and services. The company set me up with a website, and it was all online business. I told myself, "it's a piece of cake. I can make a profit here every day."
Guess what happened? Epic fail! Nothing happened! I can count the sales (hardly any) I had for those months. I even reached out to my friends and family. They supported me from time to time, but I couldn't keep selling to them. What went wrong? I didn't have any marketing strategy to find customers for my business.
We all know that an essential part of any business is customers. Our customer list is one of the...
