Lol I was shaking after this Zumba class so the picture has some motion blur. #ohhereweketo
You may have recently noticed a new feature update on IG, outlining that products can now be tagged within stories, which can send users to a link to purchase products at appropriate online stores. To many, this may just seem to be one of the many new features being introduced by Instragram to keep us all satisfied, but to me this is the start of Online Shopping 2.0!
Let me explain: For online shopping, I think that there is still a great deal of opportunity to further streamline the point of purchase directly integrating it into social media websites, specifically Facebook and Instagram. Social media is really the “branding channel” that companies advertise on, using our daily keystrokes to drive data driven by consumer preferences. Typical companies are linking advertisements to a seperate selling platform (typically the sellers website) to purchase the product. Does it not make sense to grab that selling platform and plop it right into Facebook or Instagram, where the purchase process can become systematic and be done at even more ease? Over the last couple of years, Brick and Mortar locations in retail have been taking a beating in the market, leading firms to scale back to a business model driven by online sales, allowing them to have more variable exposure and less fixed cost. A similar trend will take place with web stores when social media sites become the point of purchase channel.
Looking forward: I feel that we can expect the following - Instragram will allow firms to pay a % of total sales to manage their website sales directly, and features will be added to transfer funds within messenger and Instagram DM so people can lend funds for shopping purposes.These trends support streamline to purchase process within social media.

Remember the time I hiked the Appalachians 6 days after I had abdominal surgery and a near death experience? 😉
Well my mom, @deborarobillard
sure does and she was pretty sure I was going to die too! 😂
However, the only limits that exist are the ones that we set for ourselves and the ones that we allow ourselves to believe. 💎
We allow ourselves to make excuses and get caught up in our circumstances to avoid our goals. What if we achieve our goals? What happens then? Does everything just stop? Did we reach our limit? 🤔
When you realize that you are limitless, life becomes a dangerous game 😜
For the most part, there is no one telling us what to do. There is no one, but ourselves and the few people in our lives that we allow to control them. Don’t let others stop you. The real competition is between you and your brain. Nothing and no one else matters. ❤
Take care of yourself and face the pain. It may be physical. It may be mental.Conquer your brain and you can conquer the world. You are nothing short of limitless. Always remember that. ⛰
💚💛Super proud of this smart, humble, cutie!! Vote @nyja.h

New post up! 🙌🏻 isn’t it funny how your own life is really up to you? 👊🏻💥
‼️Why the scale is BULL💩
Not seeing the number on the scale drop, or seeing the number go up can be HEART BREAKING❗️it’s crazy how that number can have such a negative impact on your life...
But the scale can be so misleading because there are so many factors to how much you weigh at the moment➡️
💥If you had some extra carbs than usual, your weight will probably increase.
💥if you had extra sodium, your body WILL retain water, and your weight will probably increase.
💥if you are constantly stressed, your weight will probably increase.
💥if your poops are outta whack, your weight will probable increase.
💥if you didn’t drink enough water, your weight will probably increase.
The list goes on and on. So please, PRETTY PLEASE do not get discouraged when you see the scale a few lbs heavier than normal❗️
If possible, just ditch the scale all together‼️Take progress photos every week and try on clothes that used to be too small on you⬆️👖👗👙
Believe it or not, I haven’t weighed myself in MONTHS! And I feel fabulous without that damn scale 💃🏻

Day 4 of #mybrilliantbrandchallenge
Who are the clients you love, that inspire you, who do you like to work with?
The passage of time has afforded me a luxury - the confidence borne out of a few miles on the clock. This luxury manifests itself in many ways, but when it comes to clients - I now only work with clients I like...
Now I know that statement might sound a bit arrogant or pretentious, but I promise it’s not. .
It’s because I’ve learnt that I can only do my best work when I’m working with people that inspire me, that I want to do really well for - and to do that, I need to like them. .
When I’m talking about like here, I mean that I feel a connection, that we understand each other. They get that I understand their issues and they like & trust me enough to let me in to help them. That way, I can help them with their issues & challenges and they get the best of me.
That relationship is our oxygen, when it’s there it feeds the flame and we grow brighter together - and that’s a great feeling that can achieve powerful change.

Do you take the stairs?
By that I mean do you do the hard stuff?
Or do you try to take the “quick” route?
Are you doing the things you know you should be doing even though it’s a struggle sometimes?
Are you trying to get a “shortcut” to what you want?
Are you implementing all the strategies and how-to’s only to find yourself exactly where you’ve been?
Once you start showing up every day & “taking the stairs”, watch the magic unfold. 💫
I like to use a little real world analogy here. When I hiked three days to Machu Picchu, the experience of taking that all in upon arrival was unlike anything else.
The experiences, the things I learned about myself, the joys had with others along the way, the effort put in. The arrival upon sunrise from a view you could only get to by foot.
ALL of that couldn’t have been experienced had I taken a train to get there. I’m sure the sights would have been just as beautiful and serene....but the feeling and experiences wouldn’t be.
The same thing applies in business. The stairs may be tough and challenging. But what you’ll learn and experience along the way will only benefit you when you get to the top.
So ask yourself...are you taking the stairs? 🤷🏻♀️
Hi y’all! 👋🏻 We’re still alive over here! I have to say, this transition has been slowly kicking my ass. We’ve been struggling to find a routine. With a new big job for the hubs, a part time thing for me, starting grad school and keeping up with this toddler, we’re wiped out. 😴😦
We’re living out of suitcases, sleeping on a blow up mattress, and eating in camping chairs at a folding table in the dining room. It’s a little silly but we’re making it work.👌🏼👌🏼
I guess that’s the take-away here. We’re making it work. I had this dream that turned into a goal, which I made a plan and then actuality. It’s crazy, but here we are!
I’m crazy grateful for a place to lay our heads, good food to fill our bellies and an amazing husband to roll through the punches with me. He’s making the trek to NC to get our stuff this weekend so if you’re there and need something to do Saturday, he’s your guy! 😉
Sometimes I find my motivation after I get started! Just get out the door.
Because some days are better than others! On those days you have to give your damn self the pep talk! “YOU GOT THIS” stay focused and keep pressing on! That is all!
Something exciting happened tonight at my @weightwatchers

Come get that third eye right.
Hip hop Wednesday is back again.
Tomorrow we flow to find that inner glow.
Who you bringing to the dance floor? Tag em' below.
One of my few regrets in life is that I wasted so many years in my late teens and early twenties just hating the body I was in and hating myself for having gotten overweight. ***
It took me so, so long to learn to eat like food is fuel, not a reward or a distraction, and we should put the highest-grade fuel in our engines if we want good performance.
It took me so, so long to find kinds of exercise that I really loved doing, and to look forward to working out rather than dreading it or seeing it as punishment.
*** I still don’t love every part of my body & I still want to keep getting stronger and faster and leaner. I still have days I don’t want to work out. I still eat non-nutritious foods sometimes or eat too much because of stress. We are all just human, after all.
But I no longer starve myself and compulsively exercise, and I no longer binge eat, and I no longer feel too ashamed of my body to look in the mirror.
Whatever you want to do, you can do it.
You just have to start and not give up.
Progress is often slow.
But literally the only way you can fail is if you stop trying.

When was the last time you unplugged to spend time with the people who mean the most to you?
When my hubs and I were still just dating and moved in together, it quickly became a rule - no cell phones in the bedroom. (Yep - I was one of those people who slept with it beside me so I didn't miss anything)
Now with an (almost) teenage daughter and our busy connected lives we are working on unplugged family meals and plugging our phones in out of reach by a certain time each night.
My next big goal...and unplugged weekend away with the hubs. I will be turning off all notifications or even deleting my social media apps to just enjoy some time together.
Do you drink PSL’s all fall long like me? 🍂🎃
Did you know that my superfoods that I drink on the daily are less expensive than one coffee at Starbucks and one serving is packed FULL of vitamins, superfoods, phytonutrients, and essential amino acids that our bodies need to perform at optimal level?
