Will they think I’m professional enough? Will they think I know what I’m talking about?" Taylor Bradford "Take a step back and see, you know, does this really fit in? And like, yeah, shiny objects might look really cool but does it serve your main purpose?" Taylor Bradford "It’s amazing how when we go down these journeys that that kind of thing can happen…you have to have a reality check even with yourself to say you know what is too much and how can you serve your clients the best and in what manner." Taylor Bradford "I think that with anything I think we should look at fear as something that’s not necessarily scary because I think if we allow it to creep in and overtake us then it can bring in so much negativity to our business because we start doubting ourselves and our capabilities." Taylor Bradford QUOTES BY ABBY "I realized so many women were struggling with the overwhelming fear of weight gain and kind of being stuck in a diet trap I call it, because I had struggled with that for a few years prior to realizing, "oh this is what I want to do." Helping other women get out of that diet trap and mindset so they can just feel at peace with food and their bodies and learn to listen to their bodies again." Abby Hutcheson "I kind of had this fear that I wouldn’t be able to manage it. I thought okay, ‘Where do I even start and if I don’t know where to start? How can I make this vision come to life of being a health coach?'" Abby Hutcheson "I’ve really had to learn that just because something sounds good in the moment, you do have to take time to pause and think about the pros and cons of it…and I also ask myself how the opportunity will make me feel. When I’m working on it, if I’m following the expectations the opportunity has given me, will that make me feel energized? Will it fit with my business? Will it help my audience? If it doesn’t I have to say no." Abby Hutcheson "If you know what the key priorities in your life and in your business are then it’s so much easier to say does this opportunity, no matter how good it is, no matter how much money it will bring me or whatever, does it really fit with what I value and what my top goal and priorities in my business are?" Abby Hutcheson "The easiest part for me is connecting with other women who are looking for support that I can give them. You know guiding them and creating content whether it’s blog posts or emails or whatever. I find that to come pretty naturally to me and the time management side comes pretty naturally to me as well." Abby Hutcheson "I like doing things that make me a little bit nervous because the results are always beyond expectations, almost always…I realized that what’s the best that could happen way, way, way outweighs what’s the worst…asking if this will benefit the women I work with." Abby Hutcheson "Remember as a boss girl that you are a boss girl because you want to be more in control of your lifestyle, how you feel, your schedule, your income all of that. So with that being said make sure that you are really clear about what it is you want; how you do want to feel, how you want your days and your weeks to look like. Once you know that you can design your business and schedules around that."

Create a product around that." Taylor Bradford "I love Periscope. It's been a really fun way to just kind of meet your community where they are." Taylor Bradford QUOTES BY AMY "I have a really hard time landing on one thing and sticking with it. So, I get, shiny app syndrome or whatever you want to call it. So all of these social media things are new and exciting and interesting. And I'm like 'oh that looks nice, let me see what that's all about' and I sort of get lost along the way. So it's been really hard for me to stick with one thing and go in that direction." Amy Lynn Andrews "When I started the Useletter®, I don't know what it is about the difference in the writing, it's still writing, but for some reason I'm able to write the Useletter® every week. And over 2 years, I've only missed 2 weeks of sending it out. And that is shocking for me and both of those 2 weeks were actually planned." Amy Lynn Andrews "My biggest obstacle is just sticking to it and being consistent." Amy Lynn Andrews "The way that it call came about (The Useletter®)...I realized, oh my goodness, this whole blogging thing is really becoming more than just blogging. Now we have social media and we have YouTube and of course all of the different platforms on social media. And the stuff you that you need to do and all the changes that come with it all the time. So blogging is much bigger and really we not really bloggers anymore. We're digital content producers." Amy Lynn Andrews "If I can't say yes (to an opportunity), I definitely can get behind this and promote it, then I say no." Amy Lynn Andrews "I like to keep my options open. Generally I'll just say, if I have to say no to something, you know "Thanks for reaching out. Given my current projects, I am going to have pass this time. But please keep me in mind for similar projects down the road and maybe we can collaborate sometime in the future." Amy Lynn Andrews "(Loving your job)...To get to a point where, my goodness, I get to do this every day. And then on top of it, I get paid to do it. Could life be any better?" Amy Lynn Andrews "(Finding balance)...The first thing that comes to mind is we're always in flex. And allowing ourselves to look at the season we are in. And then create your schedule around that." Amy Lynn Andrews "(Finding balance)...Number 2 is for me especially, I need in order to be really super productive, I need to have a really good chunk of time to sort of get into the zone and work for several hours. And then be able to come out of it at the other end. Before I was trying to squeeze work in the nooks and crannies of life. You know, like here's an hour free or here's a couple of hours free, or I've got 10 minutes to go through email or whatever. That's hard. Now I have a full day, once a week, where I leave in the morning and don't come home until late in the evening or afternoon. And I just work all day." Amy Lynn Andrews "Make a list the night before, preparing yourself for what you are going to work on the next day." Amy Lynn Andrews "I think it's important to think big picture." Amy Lynn Andrews "I really have made a point of staying nimble. Which means keeping things running in such a way that I can change really quickly." Amy Lynn Andrews "I'm moving away from blogging as we know it, let's say. And really thinking about what I want to do going forward. Just as blogging has changed so much and there's so many new things on the horizon all of the time. And I don't think people are reading blogs as much as they used to. So I think that we are kind of at this point where we gotta figure out what we are going to do moving forward. Because I don't think that the way we've done it in the past, blogging in general, is really going to keep us all moving forward as we go. There's a lot of microblogging now on social media platforms and of course Podcasting and Video, like we said. So, I'm just in the process of trying to turn around my the whole ship that I started, really."

And some people now are calling them masterminds which I think is a cool girl boss term because a tribe doesn’t necessarily have to be everybody in your exact niche." Taylor Bradford "What it feel like to be part of a tribe, just the camaraderie of having people that kind of know what you’re doing and kind of understand it." Taylor Bradford "I can’t stress enough how important finding a blog tribe is." Taylor Bradford "Seasons change. Friendships change. Tribes change." Taylor Bradford "The biggest, number one thing you need to look for in a tribe is people you can trust." Taylor Bradford "You want to be able to freely share about the things that are going on in your head, like your ideas, in a space where you will not feel like someone might scrape that idea, or steal that idea." Taylor Bradford "Cultivating your tribe is more than just blogging and commenting on their blogs." Taylor Bradford "Always give back, always offer support, and always provide value." Taylor Bradford JENNIFER SAID "Finding people who were of the same mind and interested in the same things, which was blogging, was so key for me not going crazy." Jennifer Salter "Your tribe will change, guaranteed, it will change overtime, but that’s a good thing because you’re growing, which means your tribe needs to grow." Jennifer Salter "You want to look for people too that are learning things, you don’t want to talk about the same old things." Jennifer Salter "Try to find a least two or three people who are experts in something that you suck at." Jennifer Salter "Your tribe is not about getting ahead, your tribe is about supporting each other and sharing knowledge." Jennifer Salter "Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there because, if you’re doing it through your computer, there is a little bit of a buffer so you don’t have to be afraid of rejection because you know it might happen but, just feel comfortable."

If you are getting paid to write about said brand or service or product or whatever, if it's in money or product compensation, you need to be no-following these links. That tells Google that you either a) don't trust the source or you've been paid. One of the two." Taylor Bradford "If you are being paid to talk about a brand or service, your links going to that brand or service have to be no-follow links." Taylor Bradford "Some people will say, oh well it's just Google. But, Hello! It's GOOGLE! Google runs the internet. If you blog, you are on the internet. And you do not want to piss off the Google gods...EVER!" Jennifer Salter "It's going to hurt your brand and their brand simultaneously if you don't follow these rules." Taylor Bradford "When it comes to this kind of stuff, go to the source." Jennifer Salter "Ignorance is not bliss." Taylor Bradford "Start doing your research on how to go about doing these things the right way." Taylor Bradford "Do your own research and know 100%. Even in the articles that you and I have written about these kinds of subjects, we have both said we are quoting these sources, but go read these sources for yourself. Interpret them yourself. Get the knowledge in your own head so that you can stand up for your own brand." Jennifer Salter "At the end of the day, no one else is representing you."

I don't necessarily think you need to have a whole lot of content in the back burner to get started blogging. I think the biggest thing you need to do is just start blogging." Taylor Bradford "We didn't have anything when we started. It was a wing and prayer when we got started. And I think sometimes that's the best way to learn." Jennifer Salter "You don't really find your voice [in your blog]...you're not going to be able to pinpoint that [your voice] until you get started and start developing your audience." Jennifer Salter "Get yourself into like-minded Facebook groups and start interacting with people that might be in your business niche. Or maybe it's solopreneurs or creative entrepreneurs, some kind of Facebook group where you can literally if they have a weekly thread or a daily thread where you can throw your brand new content out there. Then you can start getting some eyes on that and start building kind of your self-confidence behind your content." Taylor Bradford "Every blogger starts at zero. Every single one of us." Taylor Bradford "Start with your customer's number one question. That should be your first blog post." Taylor Bradford "People need to know the why behind your business." Jennifer Salter "It's important to put your face out there....you are your brand, regardless of what direction you take it. You are you and you are your brand. You have to put your face on that." Jennifer Salter "Consistency is so the key. And that is something that you need to sit down and have a discussion with yourself and say this is how often I'm going to post and these are the days I'm going to post. And you need to stick to that schedule because your readers will come to know what that schedule is." Taylor Bradford RESOURCES AND LINKS MENTIONED *Links below may contain Affiliate Links.

An opt-in is a freebie. Something you give people to sign up for your email list." Taylor Bradford "It's important to have an opt-in so that you can get people interested in the content that you are creating every day or every other day or however often you are creating your content for your website or your blog." Taylor Bradford "You want to be able to provide something else that's unique to who you are and what you are creating on your website or your blog. And provide that specifically to the people that want to sign up to get your stuff in their inbox." Taylor Bradford "Here's the thing: a brand new subscriber probably hasn't read your content from a year ago. And what better way to purpose what you've already written in the past by putting it into a PDF." Taylor Bradford "Allowing people to kind of have a little bit more behind-the-scenes access to you, so that they can get to know who you are and become an avid reader of whatever you create." Taylor Bradford "If you create a drip campaign and they want it all at once, add something extra to kind of boost that." Community member, Quita from Audacious Biz "If you are wanting to grow your community through your email list, I would do more than just your RSS automatic feed to their [your subscribers] email." Taylor Bradford "How in the world do we engage people to just want to sign up for your email newsletter? First of all, the opt-in. That's one. SEcond of all, getting people to answer questions." Taylor Bradford "Always add a call-to-action at the end of your emails." Taylor Bradford RESOURCES AND LINKS MENTIONED *Links below may contain Affiliate Links.
