3 Ways to Pay Off Your Credit Cards

I don’t know about you but I hate debt.

It gives me anxiety.

I don’t like owing people.

I got my first credit card when I was 18.

My mom tried to warn me, but I didn’t listen.

At 18 I got every card I could think of and I maxed each one out.

I have paid that debt off since then, acquired more, and now I can say in the 2020, I was able to get all my credits down to less than $100 balance, during a pandemic.

In 2021, my goal is to maintain a low balance on my credit cards, while attacking my car payments. I also want to start attacking this school loan debt.

The golden rule is that you do not want your credit card to exceed 30% of the credit limit.

My goal is to definitely stay under that!

I was doing some research and I found that most people my age, 35 and under, have

  1. Student loan debt
  2. Credit Card debt

I know this was true in my life until I paid off my credit cards.

Today, I want to share what I did to pay off my credit card debt and leave you with some methods that can support you in paying off your debt as well.

Celebrate Your Success

It’s Sunday so you know what that means….

Tarot time, one of my favorite days of the week!

Last week, the cards spoke to the fact that I am elevating to a new plane.

I am a BOSS and I have to stay focused on my strategy and keep my feet to the ground to manifest my desires.

At the same time, I was also called to rest and relax, letting me know that its possible to do both. I do not have to over exert myself when it comes to reaching my goals.

The overall theme for this week calls for me to celebrate.

How to Reduce Your Anxiety in Your New Online Business

Hey Boss Momma!

If you are a aspiring boss momma who is developing an online business or you may already show up in this space, the following thought processes and steps that I decided to take in developing my business this week may be helpful to you!

So keep reading!

This week in my business I made some BIG decisions.

Some BIG decisions that I am proud of!

I told you already in the last post that I decided to choose my niche.

Lol was a big deal for ME.

I already thought about changing it again yesterday.

I found myself saying,

 “Antinette you should focus on women. You don’t want to leave out the women who don’t have kids.”

I had to tell myself,

“Shut up! I said what I said.”

In my Nene Leakes voice.

I am focusing on MOMS who are ready to start their own business or take on leadership roles in their personal and professional life.

When you are starting your own business you have to make a decision.

There are going to be many roads that you can go down.

Choose 1. Dominate that field and then move forward if you so choose.

This week I also been focused on STRATEGY!

When you make a decision, you then have to come up with your strategy.

Because I am developing a life that I do not have to vacation from, I have to engage in work that I love so it doesn’t have to feel like work. If that makes sense.

This week, I have been developing a strategy that I will be able to implement for the long haul.

We only have 24 hours in a day.

Half of my day I already have commitments.

I am a stay at home mom, girlfriend, teacher, entrepreneur, maid, cook, and more.

I can’t be out here doing too much.

That is how people get burnt out.

The last couple of weeks I was producing major content

And it felt good, but I knew that although I liked what I was doing, I would not be able to keep that up longterm.

Then my weekly reading confirmed it.

The theme: “My strategy will reduce my anxiety”. This was a call to look at my strategy, because honestly my anxiety was on the rise.

So I been focused.

I been focused on 2 things, but before I get into it

Ask Yourself, “The way I am working right now. Will this be effective in the long run?”

If you answer was NO to the question above, focus on the following 2 questions.

  1. What is the ultimate goal that I am working toward right now?

The Ultimate Goal that I am working toward right now, in my career, is getting paid to create value online.

2. How can I easily show up in this space?

When I reflected on how I can easily show up in this space, I thought about

  1.  what it is that I love to do
  • It was clear that I loved writing. There are times when I am recording my podcast or doing something else that has nothing to do with writing, and I find myself wishing that I am writing. I like to write. That comes easy to me.
  • I love blogging as well. When it comes to showing up easily, I thought about how  by me narrowing my audience, I would be able to  expanded my message by talking to a particular group of people. Also blogging will help me to be naturally consistent. Consistency is key online.

2. what I like doing

  • I like the podcast. I like the blog and the podcast because I can show up crusty and/or musty and no one knows or cares lol.

3. what is stressing me out

  • What was stressing me, was trying to combine all this together. My strategy was all wrong as it pertains to showing up in this online space.
  • Also, I didn’t have my target audience down so it was hard for me to develop my message and be clear with who I am talking to. I was clear on what but not on who!

Today though I came up with an online strategy that will support me in reaching my business goals! My strategy is way more specific but the following sums it up

Moving forward:

  1. My central form of communication will be my blog. It just makes sense. I literally wrote this in less than an hour. I love writing. And after writing my book, I see myself doing more of it. In many forms. Also, the numbers are a motivating factor. Yall be tuned in! Thank you!

Your Take Away: Choose 1 way to dominate in this online space. Are you a blogger, vlogger, social media influencer.

2. My podcast & YouTube Channel topics that I choose will piggyback off what I am talking about on my blog for the week.

Your Take Away: If you choose to be apart of other platforms reuse the content from your main choice of communication. This way you don’t have to recreate content all the time.

3. The goal of my social media moving forward is to engage with my community, direct community to my website and to sale my products.

Your Take Away: Knowing your goals, help you to create objectives that will support you in getting closer to your goal

This week’s realizations, are really going to help me develop clearer messaging, reach my target audience and customer, and reach other business goals.

I hope you can use the above tips on your journey in developing your online business.

If you want support developing in developing and achieving your business goals, I encourage you to schedule your clarity session today!

The Benefits of “Niching Down” in Your Business

Hey Boss Friend,

It has been a minute since I actually sat down and wrote you!

I have been putting so much time into developing other parts of this brand that I have not been able to do what I love the most.

And that is write.

The last couple of weeks have been enlightening and I am making some big decisions regarding my brand and my voice.

There will be some revamps coming soon to my website and I am truly excited about my present and especially for 2021.

Here is a heads up!

Beginning today, you will begin to see my content change!

I finally decided to do something that I have been resisting for 2 years and that is choosing a “niche”.

If you have been following me for a while, you know that this has been a real struggle for me.

I struggle because I do not want to leave anyone out.

However, I am pass that!

Since I have been seriously focusing only on this business for the last couple of months, I have realized that I will be burnt out if I don’t focus on one group of people to develop and build up.

As I began to think about who and what I want to focus on, I began to think about me and my life and what would be “easy”.

When I say “easy” I don’t mean without challenge, but “easy” to incorporate with my lifestyle.

I want my brand to represent me fully and I do not want to do or be too much outside of myself to attract my tribe.

Because I am building a virtual business, I realize that I have to create content that speaks to a particular group of people.

Sombody.

There are 7.59 billion people in the world.

There are 3.81 billion people on social media.

Me trying to speak to everyone just isn’t effective for what it is I want to achieve in this online space.

After much thought and reflection.

Here is who I chose

MOMS

Yes MOMS

It makes perfect sense.

As a mom myself, with a special needs child, a homeschool teacher to two, and a girlfriend, founder of 2 businesses, times get tough.

I want to speak more to my experience as that.

I want to create a space where I can share my journey regarding my personal life, relationship(s), parenting, entrepreneurship, and a little bit of Tarot lol.

Now that I know who and what I am going to focus on.

Moving forward when I go live, I know exactly who I am speaking to.

When I write my blog, I know exactly who I want to read my content.

I am currently working on an online course and “niching down” has helped me to find my voice as it pertains creating that.

I have truly saw the value in “niching down” so far.

Because some of you have been rocking with me for a while, I wanted to make this announcement, that I am evolving.

I love you all and stay true

To you!

Design the Right Business For YOU in 5 Simple Steps!

Let me share a secret with you that no one never ever told me, or maybe they did, and I just didn’t believe them lol.

Design the Right Business For YOU in 5 Simple Steps!

Let me share a secret with you that no one never ever told me, or maybe they did, and I just didn’t believe them lol.

Being an entrepreneur requires a lot of time.

Some entrepreneurs, especially when they are starting out, spend 16+ hours building their business a day.

Are you about that life?

I believe you are!

I want to share a 5 steps process with you that will support you in engaging in a development process that you will ENJOY, because I have seen and heard stories of people who spend all this time developing businesses that brings them no joy!

Use the following steps to prevent that from being you!

Step 1: You need pen, paper, & your sacred design space.

Putting your pen to paper is KEY when manifesting greatness. Anything not written down is a DREAM. Once you write your dream down, you are developing your PLAN!

Step 2: Write down all the things that you like to do. Try to come up with at least 20 things.

Engaging in the process will get the wheels turning in your head! Once you identify 20 things that you like, explore each thought and think of ways in which you can make money off of that idea.

Step 3: Think about life as a child. What were you good at? What businesses/ entrepreneurs were around you that interested you growing up?

A lot of us try to bury our childhood memories for whatever reason. I want to challenge you to revisit your past and search for the good memories. What memories and feelings can you recreate in your adult life through your business? Think and reflect and see what comes up for you.

Step 4: Think about the goals of your business.

Is your goal to create impact, make money, or both. There is no right or wrong answer. Determining the goals behind your business will support you when developing the foundation of your business.

Step 5: Research the industry. What are the trends? How can you be different?

Do your research! After implementing steps 2-4, you should have a few business ideas written down that you can explore. Do your  research to see if those industries are projected be around and how will they fair within the next couple of years!

These 5 steps will support you in designing the right business for YOU!

If you need support in the process, schedule your clarity session today and allow me to DEVELOP YOUR GREATNESS through a 1 on 1 process.

Until next time……
