Kevin Hart: Poor Lil Tink Tink

A few days ago, news broke that everyone’s favorite little man (Kevin Hart) stepped out on his “rib.”

***insert eye roll here***

As much as I hate it for Lil Kevy, his bad choices don’t change my check. 

Even though I’d love to spend the day digging through the memes and reading the blogs (don’t judge me) I’d much rather invest my time in using my social media to make money.

At the end of the day, the scandal isn’t really going to stop his success… so why should you waste your time worrying about it?!

By minding my business on social media, I’ve been able to:
√ get booked to speak Internationally
v sell books to countries I’ve never been to
connect with celebs, politicians, and influencers
√ sell out a 7-city tour
√ generate over six figures online

and if you start minding yours and focusing on what’s for you, you can do it too.

This week I’m releasing a new course: making a name for yourself on social media and I’m covering:
•setting up your profile to secure the bag
•why content is king and how to create it
•how to engage your audience and turn them into your tribe
•using partnerships to promote your brand + get paid 
•managing the madness (how to handle it all)

I’m excited to help you build your influence and make money online!!

8 Essentials of an Engaging Email

It makes absolutely no sense to have 5,000 subscribers on your list if you don’t know how to create an engaging and effective email.

Here are my 8 essentials of an engaging email:

#1 Create a story around your topic

Facts tell, stories sell. By creating a story around your topic, you will have a relatable way to reach your audience.

#2 Use the 90/10 rule

90% of all communication should be educational, while 10% can be promotional. It’s important that you provide great free content before expecting your audience to become customers.

#3 Keep it friendly

As you write your email, pretend that you’re talking to a girlfriend. Smile as you write and your energy will transfer to your subscribers. They will literally believe you’re talking directly to them.

#4 Don’t give away all of the goods

You always want to leave your readers wanting more. Instead of giving away all of the content in the actual email, you want your subscribers to click through to your site or shop.

#5 Secure the bag with the subject line

33% of readers decide whether they’ll open your email based on the subject line alone. Don’t be afraid to be funny, use slang and allow your brand voice to shine through.

#6 Keep it short & sweet

People hate reading. Period. Your job is to get to the point without losing the interest of your reader.

#7 Time is of the essence

Hands down, the best day to send emails (based on all studies) is Tuesday. You can gauge the best time of day based on your Instagram statistics — if you have your facebook business account you can check your statistics on the IG app to decide the best time of day to send your emails.

#8 Proofreading is profitable

You always want to create a professional appearance for your brand and proofreading is one guaranteed way to maintain your image.

In my free email marketing basics training I went waaaay deep on these 8 essentials and also shared 10 types of email to send your subscribers besides your boring newsletter.

Koe Takes Cabo: Busy at the Beach 2017 Recap

I brought the melanin to Mexico for my 3rd Annual #BusyAtTheBeach Getaway and we turned Cabo out! For the first time, I brought along two boss babes to co-host with me, Emmelie De La Cruz and Nichole Sanford.

From day 1’s pool party to game night and the boat party, we literally did it all and Cabo don’t owe us a thing!

Busy at the Beach is all about empowering women to play as hard as they WERK and take time to celebrate themselves. Women traveled from all across the county to network with like-minded ladies, get some strategy for their success and enjoy fun in the sun.

My girl Priiincesss documented the entire trip, check out her daily reviews:

•Day 1: Pool Party

•Day 2: Private Dinner

•Day 2: Game Night

•Day 3: Boat Party

If you missed this year’s getaway, be sure to secure your spot ASAP for next year’s vacay! >> Get details here.

Seven Reasons to Choose Shopify for Your Store

Over the last 5 years, I’ve hosted shops on GoDaddy Shopping Cart builder, Big Cartel, WooCommerce and Shopify. Although there are pros and cons to each platform, nothing compares to Shopify.

Here are my top 7 reasons why:

#1 You can sell almost anything with Shopify

Whether you’re selling physical products, digital goods or dropshipping items you can do it all easily with Shopify. BigCartel and GoDaddy didn’t offer any add-ons to deliver digital products.

#2 There’s tons of seamless integrations

Whether you want to integrate your email campaigns via Mailchimp or your calendar through Google, Shopify has an app that allows you to share the data easily.

#3 You don’t have to be techy to use Shopify

When it comes to setting up and designing your site, you don’t need to be a techy to get it done. It’s simple templates make it easy to design a professional site in a short time. WooCommerce was a nightmare to learn.

#4 The numbers don’t lie

When it comes to making money online, you want to know your stats at all time. Unlike other platforms, shopify provides in-depth reports for your store. From who’s spending the most money to who’s predicted to purchase next… if you want to know it, Shopify has a report for it.

#5 It’s affordable

You don’t have to break the bank with Shopify. You can start selling for free with their 14-day trial and then host your shop for as little as $29/mo

#6 Shipping is seamless

Shipping was a nightmare with BigCartel, I literally had to log into paypal to ship each individual order and manually mark it as shipped. Shopify saves me time by integrating shipping via USPS, plus it offers discounts on postage when you ship your order directly through your shop back end.

#7 There’s an app for that

Think of Shopify like an iPhone. It comes with a ton of features standard but you can download apps that add all sorts of functions to your device. Shopify has a similar “app store” with tons of apps that turn your basic store into a booming enterprise.

 

In this free training I shared how I was able to make $56K with Shopify. Plus, I’m dispelling myths about making money online and advice on how to avoid common ecommerce mistakes.

myths about making money online

5 Myths About Making Money Online

Have you ever heard someone say they were “making money in their sleep” and automatically thought they were a scammer?

Like, come on.. how can you really get paid while you’re not even paying attention?

Most people can’t imagine it and won’t believe it.

But, it’s true.

You can absolutely make money while you’re on the couch or on the beach just by having an online shop.

Whether you’re selling t-shirts or your services, there’s something to be sold and it’s time for you to start selling it.

Earlier today I shared a quick facebook video with 5 myths about making money online:

•You have to have a lot of money to start a shop

•You have to have a ton of products to make money

•You have to have a huge marketing budget

•You have to have a lot of followers to make money online

•You have to be tech savvy to make money online

So many people would love to be able to wake up with more money than they had when they went to sleep, but they have no clue how to do it.

This free training has the tips, tricks and tools to make money online easily and effortlessly using Shopify.

Even if you have no desire to become a business owner, you certainly have the desire to become debt-free or wealthy. So even though entrepreneurship isn’t for everyone, multiple streams of income most certainly is.

3 Life Changing Lessons Every Woman Must Learn

Last weekend I had the pleasure of attending the “Support Your Girlfriends” Weekend in Ocho Rios, Jamaica.

This 4-day getaway served as a much needed weekend of relaxation among women who wanted to create a supportive community. It was hosted by Tene Nicole Public Relations at the exquisite Moon Palace Resort where we were wined and dined with unlimited luxuries from complimentary bottles of champagne each day to 24 hour room service.

Although we came together to connect professionally, we naturally established personal relationships as well. It was amazing to see how women from so many backgrounds, ages and professions had so much in common.

There were so many amazing memories made at the Moon Palace and tons of lessons learned. Being an Educator at heart, I’m always looking for lessons that I can apply and share. These are my top 3 takeaways that my young 30 somethings can relate to:

#1 Me time is a necessity, not a luxury

It’s super easy to get so caught up in your to do list that you forget to take care of yourself. If we’re not running around like crazy with a jam packed calendar, we actually start to wonder if we’re doing enough. This weekend away really showed me the importance of pausing. Pausing to reflect on your circumstances and hit the reset button so you can remain focused on your priorities. With so many of us wearing so many hats and being so much to so many people, this time away was much deserved. 

My challenge to you: Take time for yourself at least once a week for a “solo date.” You don’t have to spend a dime to do something to celebrate yourself. The more you invest in you, the better you’ll be for everyone else.

#2 You can learn something from everyone

If you pay close enough attention, everyone you encounter will teach you something. Whether they help you discover something new that interests you, introduces you to a new perspective, shares a contact or even if they just uncover something that annoys you– if you pay attention you can learn something. Sometimes we get so caught up in creating perfect lives online that we forget to engage in our lives offline. 

My challenge to you: Be present. Put your phone down. Pay attention. Start really engaging in meaningful conversations because they can open doors and create opportunities that you wouldn’t even believe were possible.

You can only take advantage of them if you’re paying attention.

#3 Whoever said no new friends must not have any real friends

I love me some Drizzy Drake but he was wrong about the #NoNewFriends thing. Some of my closest connections and most profitable partnerships have come from “new friends.” People I’ve met along my entrepreneurial journey, ones who were like-minded and open to opportunities. A lot of times, our homegirls from high school don’t have the same mindset as us. No shade to them, but it’s natural and normal to outgrow certain people. Sometimes it doesn’t even come down to outgrowing anyone, you can create new relationships without getting rid of the old ones. My point is that there is power in people.

Plus, if you can do it all by yourself your dreams aren’t big enough.

My challenge to you: Be intentional about connecting with new people. You never know when or how you’ll meet your next business partner, investor or customer.


If you haven’t had a chance to getaway with your girls in a while, definitely consider a relaxing stay at the luxurious Moon Palace Resort. It’s literally the nicest resort I’ve ever been to, unlimited everything!!!! 

Balling on a smaller budget? Come hang with me in Atlanta for WERKPraySlay where you’re sure to meet your next business bestie, accountability partner, coach or customer! Get more information here.
