Monday Motivation – Working with an expert

Work with a Social Media trainer

Work with a Social Media trainer

Social Media is relatively easy to use, most people have used Facebook for quite a while before starting a business so why do you need to find a good Social Media Trainer?  Because there are lots of Facebook business pages with very few likes and very little interaction.  Yes you could buy some likes but that is a waste of your money, far better to invest the money in learning how to use Social Media successfully yourself.  Lots of people say they are too busy to do their own Social Media but you don’t have to spend hours on Social Media if you learn how to use it efficiently and effectively.

Successful Social Media isn’t about the number of likes it is about the level of interaction you get from your followers and that depends on you being consistent and sharing quality, relevant and useful information with your followers, but to do this you need to know the basics of how to use the different Social Media sites.   Yes you can spend a lot of time reading blog posts about Social Media and trialing what works but the problem is there is a lot of information out there and not all of it is of high quality.

So save yourself some time and money by finding a Social Media trainer and work with them to make your business a success on Social Media.

Being Happy Helps you to run a Successful Business and Earn More

Purple Stone Don't Worry Be Happy This post isn’t my usual post about business or social media, however being calm, happy, relaxed and feeling full of energy is essential for running a successful business, especially if you are also a mum like me.

At present I am reading Why Kindness is Good for You by David R. Hamilton PhD and in the first chapter it mentions a study that looked at how happy people were, and how this related to their earnings in later life, the study found that those people that were happiest earned significantly more money in later life than the less happy individuals.

“Plenty of studies have shown that happiness leads not only to a higher income but also to more energy, better health, a longer lifespan, a more satisfying social life, more confidence, and a higher quality of work.  Most people believe that these things are what make us happy, but most of the evidence suggests that it’s the other way around.  When we feel happy, these things come to us much more easily.  Happiness, studies show, comes first.” Quote from Why Kindness is Good for You by David R Hamilton PhD

So if you want to make more money and run a successful business, you need to work at being happier, here is where The Happiness Garden can help.  Helping you find ways to relax, stop worrying and calm down.  Helping you over come the guilt that for women is often associated with doing the things we love to do and make us happy, opposed to the things we feel we should do to make others happy.  Also for many men they feel the need to work long hours to provide money for the family, but maybe they need to look at how putting time into things that make them happy could help them earn more money and be healthier too.

The Happiness Garden is a virtual retreat membership website, which contains 10 minute meditations to help you calm down and de-stress and other great resources like The Weight Loss Secret.  Heather Bestel is the life coach behind The Happiness Garden and wants to help people live the life they want to be living.  I have worked one to one with Heather and she is so positive and full of energy.  To get access to all the lovely goodies in the Happiness Garden, it is only $47 (about £30) for a years membership and if you join now it remains that price every year.  Heather is adding new content every month so this is an absolute bargain, for something that has the potential to change your life and your business.  Membership would also make a great present for someone you love.

So why not come and join me in The Happiness Garden and start working towards being a calmer, happier and more successful you, today.

Monday Motivation – Limiting Mindset

Monday Motivation is back after a little Easter Holiday.

Here is a little something that someone shared on Facebook today.

It's called Mindset

So do you have a mindset that is stopping you from achieving your dreams?

If so is it time for you to break free from those negative limiting thoughts that bind you and keep you from reaching what you want?

I am working at freeing myself from some negative thinking, it is not easy but I am hoping it will be worth it.

Have you recently freed yourself from some limiting beliefs? How did you do it? How easy was it? Please leave a comment.

Have a fantastic week.

Monday Motivation – Allow yourself to fly

Last week my Monday Motivation post was my favourite quote about success. This week I found this gorgeous picture on Facebook check out The Positivity Garden for more fantastic pictures and quotes. So my question is “Do you allow yourself to fly and be the best you can be?” Or do you limit yourself and what you achieve?

Believe in yourself and that anything is possible. You’ll be surprised by the results.

Have a fantastic week. Stretch those wings and fly.

Monday Motivation – Daring to do Things Differently

For those of you who follow my Monday Motivation, I apologise that I didn’t manage to post last week, it was just one of those weeks.  But here we are at the start of another new week and here is this weeks Monday Motivation to get you thinking.

I came across this last week on Facebook and shared it. There are many variations on this quote, the one  below might or might not have been said by Albert Einstein.

“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”            Albert Einstein

What do you want to change in your life?

What can you do differently, to get where you want to be?

Try doing something different this week and see what happens.

Let me know how you get on.

I have a lot of things I want to change, so I better get busy changing how I do things in my life.

I hope you all have a productive week.

Monday Motivation – Persistence the Road to Success

I read a post the other day which featured this quote by Calvin Coolidge:

“Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘Press On’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”

I think along with persistence and determination we need to add in a lot of self belief and confidence in our own abilities.

This quote also links quite well with the idea of persisting and not giving up:

“Life’s real failure is when you do not realize how close you were to success when you gave up.” – Anonymous

So if you are on the verge of giving up keep going that bit long and see what is round the next corner.

When has persistence and determination paid off for you?

Hope you all have a Happy Monday and fabulous week. Wishing you all success in everything you do this week.


Monday Motivation – Results

I love motivational and inspirational quotes, they help me to keep going when times are challenging, so I thought I would share a motivational quote at the start of the week when we might have that Monday Morning feeling. A lot of my quotes I find on Facebook I love having a scan through my news feed and picking out positive and uplifting quotes to share with my friends.


This image was copied from Lessons Learned in Life’s Facebook page check out their page for more fabulous pictures and quotes.

This quote is really great for when you are running your business as you never know what that tweet or facebook status update or conversation with someone at a networking event will lead to. So keep doing great work and loving what you do.

Thank you to Heather Bestel from Mums Got a Business for inspiring me to write this post.
