Who feels like they are on the content creation hamster wheel? You feel like you need to come up with a new post or content EVERY DAY to keep your audience engaged and growing. And while that is true, it is not the whole story.
What! Listen, I thought the same way you do right now. That I had to come up with a new post every day for every platform I was using. UGH, so exhausting! I said "there has got to be a better way!" After months of google, youtube, free pdf's etc. etc. etc. and a lot of overwhelm I came up with a simple content process that has worked extremely well!

Stephanie was nominated by last week's "IT" Girl Stephanie Powell. Stephanie's response was "Omg this is so amazing! I so appreciate you Stephanie Powell!!! ♥♥♥♥♥"
Elevation Society: Stephanie tell us what you do and who you serve.
Stephanie: I am a Network Marketer and Engagement and Growth Specialist
Elevation Society: So cool! Tell us about your business
Stephanie: I serve high level business minded women who need more time freedom! I love to help people see their full potential and aid in them growing their business when they have a clear and much needed message to share!
No doubt! I love selfies too! They are a great way to show your friends and family your latest face. Or to get yourself in the picture with your favorite band playing behind you at the concert of the year. They will always be a valuable form of self expression in our digital world. But there is also a time and a place for them. Let’s talk about why they don’t work for your business, website, and professional pages.
While the new cell phone cameras are pretty awesome, they still can’t compete with an image that has been resized correctly to fit the platform you are using it on. Professional images, taken with a professional camera, start out as a monster size file. They can be resized to fit the specific parameters that will keep it looking great on any platform. Your phone selfie however has a really good chance of looking extremely grainy or pixelated.
A correctly exposed image...
Bethany's response to being the Elevation Societies first 'IT" girl was epic! When she saw the post she said: "SHUT YOUR MOUTH!!! I am the first IT Girl!! #honored!!!"
Elevation Society: Bethany tell us what you do and who you serve.
Bethany: I am a virtual assistant to podcasts hosts and small business owners.
Elevation Society: So cool! Tell us about your business
Bethany: So many people have no idea what a fantastic virtual assistant does or how they can change the life of your business. I want to give them that fantastic experience so their business can grow exponentially!
I am obsessed with helping people be seen and heard. I adore being the person behind the scenes making my clients business visions come true. I also believe that all small business owners deserve a time to have a life. So basically, I give life.
Elevation Society: Tell us something about you, outside of your business.
A positive mindset is something I have been working a lot on lately. Not because I am not a positive person, but because I want to be able to change the way I approach negativity.
Most of us probably don’t realize that the negative experiences we have had in our lives often influence our decisions. Our brains learn from difficult or painful experiences, so it naturally wants to do whatever it can to protect us from a recurrence of that feeling.
Our lives are a reflection of our attitude. The energy you, or anyone else, brings with them is contagious. You get what you give. I know this is so true for me. If there is friction in my house, the kids are stressing me out, or my fiancee is in a bad mood, it’s really difficult for me to be positive.
Now I am not saying that you should run around with daisy chains in your hair singing Kumbaya all the time. Everyone has emotions. But sometimes if we look at things a little differently we will see...
Hi! My name is Jen Ginty. I’m the owner of Defining the Style. I am a certified image consultant and personal stylist with years of experience helping women and men define their own style with wardrobe organization and personal shopping. As a former women’s boutique owner, I have consulted with everything from casual wear such as jeans and tops, to styling for the corporate world.
I brought a few different outfits for the photo shoot – Jenessa explained how the different clothing and accessories would look in the photos which helped me to figure out exactly what to wear.
I received headshots and lifestyle branding images for my business from Jenessa– they are fantastic and I get many compliments on social media and LinkedIn. I will use them for my website as well as Instagram and Facebook.
I loved that I could talk with Jenessa beforehand for questions about colors and patterns since she knows how they will display in your photos.
The word "branding" is becoming ever popular...as it should. But what the heck does it mean?
Believe it or not I get this question A LOT!
Some believe it is just the colors and fonts you use
Some think it’s only how nice your website looks
Some say oh it’s my logo
A crazy misconception is that your brand is only aesthetic.
EVERYTHING YOUR CUSTOMER/CLIENT TOUCHES IN YOUR BUSINESS IS YOUR BRAND
Brand image is more than your logo and the colors you use, it is your business identity. It is the perception consumers have at every transaction, view, or interaction with your business. Most entrepreneurs and small business owners forget about brand image while in the building stages. But this is really the most important time to pay attention. If you are beyond the building stages and still haven't thought about it then listen up!
Brand image is usually thought of as an extra expense for fluff that is not necessary. And that it will not add any real value at this point in...
