Be A Better Community Member

Be A Better Community Member by Jill CelesteBeing a better community member may seem like it has nothing to do with your business, but I ask that you stick with me here.

In this week’s marketing strategy, we’ll talk about why it’s important to be a better community member (Hint: It has everything to do with your business!).

First, allow me to define what I mean by “community member.”

I am referring to online communities you belong to, specifically entrepreneurs you may follow on social media. If you’re like me, you soak up the wisdom of other entrepreneurs, especially those up the ladder from you.

We watch their videos, read their blog posts, get inspired by their social media posts – in other words, consuming all they have to offer.

But are we sharing their content? Buying from them? Leaving more than a “like” on their posts? 

Or are we just being content consumers…

Please keep reading. I’ll explain why we need to be better community members and how to do it.

Book Review: Thank & Grow Rich by Pam Grout

Jill Celeste's book review of Thank & Grow Rich by Pam GroutIf you want to have limitless prosperity and riches, Pam Grout believes you need to stay in gratitude. In fact, gratitude is the key to everything your heart desires – and this is the premise of her book, Thank & Grow Rich.

(Isn’t that a lovely play of words from Think & Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill?)

Thank & Grow Rich is a fun collection of “party games” that are exercises in expressing gratitude. These party games are fun to implement, but they also get you thinking about situations where it may be hard to be grateful.

Each party game chapter includes an introduction to why the party game is important, how to implement it, and a story that relates to the specific party game. Each chapter is a fast read, but you want to take time to implement all of the party games to get the full effect of Grout’s teachings.

Did I attract more wealth as a result of Thank & Grow Rich? I did! (I talked about it in this blog post.) I continue to implement several of the party games every day.

If you want more abundance in your life, be sure to pick up a copy of Thank & Grow Rich. I don’t think you’ll regret it!

My big takeaways:

#1: Set the expectation that something awesome will happen to you every day.

The Next Evolution of my Marketing

Have you ever had a message bottled up inside of you, ready to emerge like a butterfly from her cocoon?

Me too.

You see: I’ve been hiding my truth because I am scared. Fear of conflict, fear of the time commitment, fear of being called a fraud – these have played in “surround sound” in my head.

But I can’t hide anymore. We can’t hide anymore. It’s time to unfold our wings and take flight.

Here’s my truth…

I am a spiritual mentor and changemaker who is empowering female entrepreneurs to lean into their Divine Gifts and feminine power.

(It still scares the crap out of me, just to type those words. Know what I mean?)

I believe (quite firmly) that it’s time for us to step into our full truths. I am stepping into my full truth, starting right now.

As I begin this journey, my marketing must evolve, which is why I am writing this message.  I want to summarize for you the next chapter of my marketing – and who it’s aimed for.

Why? Because I believe in being transparent in my marketing. Equally important, I want to inspire you to embrace the next evolution of your marketing (no matter what it looks like).

Let’s get started.

The Next Evolution of my Marketing by Jill Celeste

My ideal clients

First, allow me to explain who my ideal clients are – because everything I do in my business is for them. Continue reading

Book Review: Braving The Wilderness by Brene’ Brown

Book Review: Braving The Wilderness by Brene’ BrownDo you wonder how you belong in today’s world, especially with such polarizing opinions and “my way or the highway” attitudes? If so, be sure to check out Brene’ Brown’s book, Braving The Wilderness.

In this book, Brown teaches us what it means to truly belong, meaning that true belonging starts within us. If we can belong within ourselves, even if it feels like we are alone in the wilderness, we share our most authentic selves (without changing who we really are).

To guide us through the wilderness, Brown shares these four behavioral practices:

  1. People are hard to hate close up. Move in.
  2. Speak truth to bullshit. Be civil.
  3. Hold hands. With strangers.
  4. Strong back. Soft front. Wild heart.

She delves into each practice, offering real-life stories that drive her point home. As always, Brown is a master storyteller, and her anecdotes will move you.

My three takeaways:

#1: We are much more than our political ideologies.

How To Run A Facebook Group Without It Running You

How To Run A Facebook Group Without It Running You by Jill CelesteHaving a Facebook Group for your business is an excellent way to build your community. However, for many entrepreneurs, it feels like a daunting, time-consuming task.

Why? Because to have a successful Facebook Group, you have to be present in your Facebook Group.

And being present sounds time-consuming.

(And then there’s the part about coming up with content to engage your members.)

No wonder entrepreneurs give up on Facebook Groups before even starting one!

In this week’s marketing strategy, I will share with you two truths about running a Facebook Group, as well as two tips to ensure you get the most out of them.
