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.
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
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
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.

In todays conversation I share with you 3 things you must DO before you start any NEW journey!
I wanted to have this conversation today because I know that you watching this right now was called to begin a new journey.
You have been called to start a new career, start a new business, a new relationship, maybe a new weight loss journey, whatever journey you are starting, I want to equip you with the tools that you need so that you can have a better chance of being successful on your new journey
So lets get into it
You want to recognize where you are now, why are you here, and the part you played in the situation that led you to this outcome.
2. Commit to HEALING
To heal = to become sound or healthy
Some of you are trying to start something new on faulty ground
3. Be devoted to your GROWTH
You have to remember why you started!
And you must never give up!
God would never put a vision in you that you cannot manifest
I really hope todays conversation was helpful for 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.
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……
