I went to school. I became a teacher. When I first started out, I had this idealist view in my head that I was going to be a teacher and save the world.
Then, I started teaching and it didn’t take me long to realize that teaching in the traditional classroom wasn’t where I was supposed to be. I loved my co-workers. I enjoyed getting to know and developing relationships with my students but there was something missing.
I knew that I needed to find my purpose and my passion because spending my life doing something that took the fire out of my soul wasn’t an option.
In 2018, just after I had my daughter, I learned about the possibility of creating my own business and it lit a fire in me that teaching had put out.
I started building my business in December 2018. I knew there were many ways that I could build my business and I quickly decided that I would build my business online simply because I have access to way more people online than I do face to face.
I got my website and started learning how to create the content. Then, the real learning started happening.
It’s not enough to create the content, you have to get eyeballs on it…
With this realization, came a big learning curve.
Fast forward to March 2020. By this point, I had learned that I need to use all of my social media platforms to share my business but there was still something missing.
A good Facebook post or Instagram post only has a small reach IF it get interaction. I was looking for something bigger.
I should add that, all the while, I was a big Pinterest fan. I knew that if I could figure out how to use Pinterest with my business that it would be huge for my business.
Then, I figured it out and I started putting my new strategy to work!
I went from crickets on my website to consistent website traffic in a matter of months!
