I've been thinking about what direction to take my macramé in in the new year, and I have sooo many ideas bubbling away in my head, but I think I'd like some opinions to give me a better idea of where to start...💫💭
.
.
What would you like to see from me? Larger decorative pieces for the home? Plant hangers and other functional items? Or smaller pieces for nurseries and children's rooms?🤔
.
.
Let me know, I'm really interested in what you'd like to see!

So last week I spent a while putting together some different makeup looks for you to try yourself, or you can book me to do it for you😘 💋I've listed the exact products used to create this makeup look. As always, since the beginning (8yrs ago this month!) I never add filters or edit any of my images. They're taken on my Samsung Note 8 - the camera is pretty good👍🏻📸😁
I believe in showing #therealmakeup on a real person without airbrushing or using skin smoothing apps.
I want women to know it's possible with good skincare and makeup application to achieve what they want for themselves without feeling the pressure of perfection - it just doesn't exist (in my humble opinion). Reality and achievable results ARE attainable with knowledge and education about your own skin and what works for you makeup wise.

I'll be holding Makeup Workshops in the new year. Either 1-2-1 or small groups of 3, in the same age bracket where I can tailor to suit your needs (plus it's a chance to chat/share and connect🙂) This is your chance to take action for yourself going into 2020 and put 'you' at the top.

It'll be in my studio in Ampthill, with refreshments available and scrummy goodies to eat also - all healthy! You'll leave with your own makeup/skincare plan, colours for your skin tone and where to buy.
You'll just need to bring yourself, your makeup bag, your brushes and we'll start at the beginning. You'll be guided on how to apply your own makeup, along with little professional tips along the way.
If you are interested in being added to my list, drop me a message with your email address and you'll be the first to know when the dates are available to book💋😊💝

Whenever a doubting Thomas (skeptical mind) ask me “But what if I don’t even have a USP”? My simplest reply to them is “Then you’re just like everybody else”. Businesses without USPs will always be forced to the (less profitable) “cheap” end of the market. After all, without a USP the only reason why anybody would buy from you rather than your competitors is that you are cheaper. In contrast, people pay more for things like BMWs and Nike shoes because they have USPs based on quality, durability, style, kudos etc.
As an individual or a business owner, you need to be deliberate about differentiating yourself from your competitors, otherwise, you simply appear to be that insecure sales-person hoping for sales.

Do you find it difficult to identify your USP? Then you need to get my New E-Book Titled USP (The Ultimate Secrets to develop a Unique Selling Prepositions and Cash out) Launching on Sunday 15th December 2019

You can preorder now for $7 (N2500), as price goes up to $12 (4300) immediately after launch

Modern technology means that business working models have changed dramatically. .
The digital age that we now live in opens up a whole new way of working. .
Why hire a full time employee when you can outsource to a VA and only pay for productive time. No employee costs, no need to pay for downtime.
.
Innovative businesses see that outsourcing is the way forward and many will have several VA's as part of their working model. .
So gain yourself your own little Office Pixie, get this VA on your side, and see what a benefit I can be to you and your business. On hand as and when you need me!

So excited to post this for my first ever collab, which is hosted by the fabulous @cotybeth_cakedesign. So here is my contribution to the #holidayanimalcollab - a tower of 3 holiday animal faces (reindeer, polar bear, and penguin).
.
The cakes are covered in buttercream, with fondant decoration for the face details. The antler and ear toppers were made for my by my talented other half.

💜Are you scheduling your Instagram posts ahead of time?⁣

💜Let’s talk about Facebook creator studio for a moment, shall we?⁣

💜I put off using it for a while, but now I’m a total convert.⁣

💜I’ve spent so much money over the past year, on scheduling apps for Instagram and Facebook.⁣

💜As I’ve picked up more clients for social media management, all of the paid for apps kept increasing their prices, and often even failing to post.⁣

💜Those worries are behind me now, and the best thing is that Creator Studio is free!⁣

💜It’s a desktop service, not an app, and you can schedule posts to FB and IG with very minimal fuss, across multiple accounts if you need to.⁣

💜Super easy, so there’s no excuse not to make time to batch your content and schedule it ahead of time (I wrote this post on Saturday!)⁣

Do you schedule your posts? How far in advance do you plan your IG content? Let me know below ⬇️⁣

✨ there is room for us ALL to win - double tap if you agree! ✨

can you believe it’s been just over 1 month since I launched @solastaskin - how crazy is that!?✨

one of the wonderful parts of this journey is being able to connect with & meet so many inspiring women!💫

there are a lot of fabulous small businesses here in Aberdeen & would be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous about how/if & where @solastaskin could fit in along side all these established brands!✨

I’ve also felt really overwhelmed by the messages of support & feedback from not just my friends & family - but from other women (& men!) that I don’t even know!🙏🏽

it’s so nice to see women supporting other women, there is room for us all & we are stronger together! ❤️👊🏽

SWIPE TO SEE WHAT YOU SHOULD BE DOING IN YOUR BIZ ➡️
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Spoiler: it has nothing to do with completing your to-do list. 😎
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I firmly believe that scaling your business past 5 figures should open up space in your life to actually do the things you want to do - that's really why we started our businesses, am I right? 🔥
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Whether or not your day has 5 tasks or 25🤦‍♀️ - if they aren't lighting your soul on fire, then we either need to delegate them or automate them. 🔥
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌟 Does your daily to-do take away too much of your LIFE pie? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Drop a YES, TELL ME MORE if you want to know how you can start living life to the full! ✨✨

Do you have a Debbie Downer ⛈ on your team? By that, I mean an employee that’s so negative they mood hoover you or make others feel bad and generally see the worst in everything!

If so, you may already know that this negative behaviour can affect your other employees and your business’s bottom line in many ways. Here’s a few examples 👉🏼

⛈ Morale

⛈ Resentment

⛈ Teamwork and productivity

⛈ Customer dissatisfaction

So what do you say to an employee that’s negative? 💥

It’s can be a challenging conversation but if there’s an employee whose behaviour is having a negative impact on your business, you have a duty to address it ⚡️

⚡️ When taking to the employee, let them know that their negatively does not align with the culture you’re wanting to build. You understand that things may not be perfect but you expect everyone in the team to being a can-do attitude and proactively solve problems rather than complaining about them.

⚡️ Depending on their reaction, one conversation may be all you need to make a difference. Or if they deny being negative at all, you need to be armed with plenty of examples to explain what they are doing and set out your expectations.

⚡️ In the next conversation you can let them know there has been no improvement and this is becoming a performance issue. When they are disrupting the team, not contributing and affecting productivity, they are not meeting the requirements of the job.

For more information & further detail check out the highlight in the bio 👆🏼

Good luck dealing with your Debbie Downer. I’m here if you need any more support.

⚡ UK retailers enjoyed 'outstanding' Black Friday sales figures 🔎
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Barclaycard says transaction value was up 16.5% on last year, and the volume of transactions up 7.2%. Barclaycard, which processes about £1 of every £3 spent in the UK, said it was an “outstanding” Black Friday compared with last year. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you haven't done any sales this Black Friday and was boycotting the whole 'bargain' movement, you still have time to rethink your strategy for post-Christmas sales. ✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
