One way I love for my community to get to know me a little better is with a good ol’ Q & A. I have my amazing virtual assistant, Katie, on this episode with me asking me questions my patrons are asking + that I get asked often! We will cover topics ranging from mental health to spending fake money! Here’s a sneak peek into what Katie and I cover in this week’s episode of Beyond Crafting:
Q: Who inspires you the most?
There’s a ton of people in our online community that inspire me. But overall, more than anything, my parents. They show me kindness, patience, and love.
Oh, and Glennon Doyle (If you don’t know who she is, look her up here. She’s amazing.).
Q: What is the hardest part of being a work-at-home mom?
I think there are a lot of misconceptions about work-at-home moms, but the truth is, being a mom is hard no matter what you do – work-at-home moms, work-outside-the-home moms – we all have our trials.
Truthfully. Without a doubt. The hardest part of being a work-at-home mom is trying to explain to people that I actually work at home. Can I get an amen?!
Q: What have you found to be the best type of marketing for your business?
Wait, you don’t just buy ads???
NOPE. I have in the past.
BUT the best type of marketing is organic marketing. Find your people that really, truly believe in you. Investing in building my community in an authentic way helped me expand more than any paid marketing.
Q: What goal or goals do you hope to accomplish by the end of the year?
THIS PODCAST! I’m so passionate about staying consistent with this podcast. It’s not fair to me or you to keep letting it fall to the bottom of the list.
Q: When you have bad mental health days, what keeps you going?
You have to find the thing that keeps you going. Whatever it is. For me it’s my parents, my girls, and my amazing community + the work I get to do.
And knowing that there will be a break is what keeps me going.
Q: If you could buy anything, no money restrictions. What would it be?
No spoilers here! Go have yourself a listen to see.
Another inspiring person in my life is @thebirdspapaya. Do yourself a favor and check out her Instagram account — she helped me realize it’s okay to love myself.
