“According to research, 80% of people prefer a series of articles versus an advertisement; 70% of people agree that content marketing makes them feel closer to a product or business, while 60% credit content for helping them make better product decisions.”
- Written by Mike Lannin
In branding and business, original content is king.
Content marketing is a powerful strategy for reaching your ideal client. By providing helpful tools and resources, businesses can earn their customer's trust and goodwill long before, and well after, each purchase.
THE PERVASIVE PROBLEM:
I have seen how difficult it can be for small business owners and creative entrepreneurs to write engaging content for themselves, simply because of their hyper-detailed outlook on day-to-day operations. However, all they may need is an outsider’s unique perspective and expertise to turn complex language into simple terms that customers can better connect with.
That’s where I come in.
THE STELLAR SOLUTION:
In order to connect with your ideal client, you must first match your business offerings with the customer's recurring needs. Then, once you have discovered how to solve the customers problems, you create accessible written resources for them to utilize.
“To avoid getting skipped over or ignored, savvy digital marketers must craft messages that their target audience wants to see. When small businesses communicate with their customers by providing information instead of offering a sales pitch, the consumer will listen. The message and the brand is no longer an interruption, but a valued information provider.”
- Written by Dan Antonelli on Entrepreneur.com
THE TOP 3 BENEFITS OF HIRING A FREELANCE CONTENT WRITER:
1. Financial Stewardship: You will get the most value from your marketing dollars. By creating digital resources just once, you will continue to see engagement long after you share these digital assets with the online community.
2. Personal Productivity: Time is money. By outsourcing your creative writing to a passionate content professional like myself, you will spend more of your valuable time and energy doing what you love!
3. Content Diversity: By hiring a dedicated and experienced creative writer, your content is guaranteed to be one of a kind.

I’ve always been intrigued by my physical features. Big luscious lips, high cheek bones, warm chocolate skin, brown almond-shaped eyes, small ears, elegant collar bone, long legs & limbs, curly brown hair, slender frame, athletic build. Gosh…it’s such an interesting combination.
In recent years, my curiosity has only grown. So this year, for Christmas, I took the leap and purchased a 23andMe genealogy test for myself in an effort to learn more about the melting pot that is my genetic makeup.
CLICK HERE TO TAKE THE 23ANDME TEST FOR YOURSELF!
Note: My best friend is a scientist, and she shared with me her perspective on completing these sort of tests and the potential danger in giving these companies complete access to your precious DNA. I’m only saying this because it is a serious decision that you should consider before you spit in the tube (like I did).
I wanted to share my ancestry composition on this MLK day to show that I am proud of who I am. Honored to be in a country that my ancestors endured through pain and trials to build. Proud of the men and women of all races who have taken their stands for justice, freedom and equality. Who have made a positive difference in the world we now live in.
First - I was pleasantly surprised when my results stated that I am 100% Anastasia (Wooo…that was a close call. Glad I finally have that in writing).
I am also…
82% West African
12% European (British & Irish)
2% East Asian & Native American
<1% South Asian
If I’m honest, my first response to seeing my results was pure shock. I was SHOCKED that I was over 82% West African. I actually thought “Wow. What am I doing HERE then?”
I was also shocked that I am more European than Native American! 12%?! That’s a lot!
After my initial shock came the bittersweet realization that the area of West Africa my ancestors are from also was a huge target in the slave trade…which it answered my initial question “What am I doing here?”
I know these percentages are just numbers on a screen. But if I am honest with myself, they are more than that to me. They begin to tell a story that has been untold to me for so long. I picture each of my ancestors at my age, 28, and wonder what life they had lived in their generation. What joy they had, what trials they endured, what their hopes and dreams were. And if, in some way, I am living them out in my life – all these generations later.
I don’t want to dwell in the past. Not at all. But I do want to use the past as motivation, and continue to look forward. I want to continually dedicate my hands, my voice and my heart to the labor of building an ever brighter, fuller future for the generations of loved ones to follow.
No matter where in the world they will one day call home.
“And David realized that the Lord had established him as king over Israel, and that he had exalted his Kingdom for the sake of His people Israel.”
…and David realized…
In the midst of David’s seemingly inevitable and long overdue rise to Kingship. In the midst of all his great growth and the exultation of his people…he came to this powerful realization:
That all of this.
Everything that had happened in, to and through him.
All of the enemies he had defeated.
All of the enemies that tried to defeat him.
All of those long days in the hot sun watching over the bleating sheep.
All of it.
HIS ENTIRE LIFE!
…all led to this simple and powerful realization. The He (God) would be exalted or the sake of His people Israel.
I believe, in that moment, that realization became a “true north” for David. I also believe, that these same deep and powerful realizations are waiting to be realized in our own lives, our own hearts and our own minds. They are waiting to be lived out in real time, like David’s was.
If you don’t already know your deep purpose. Your true north. Or, if you have been given a glimpse into it but don’t yet have the full picture…
MY PRAYER FOR YOU (US) IN 2018
My prayer is that you seek it out. My prayer is that the Lord would open your eyes, your ears, and your hearts to it starting now, and extending into the year to come. And once you know. Once you have realized what “it” is, I pray that you would have the courage to do something about it. That you would share it with your family and friends. That you would write it down on paper. That you would remind yourself of it day-and-night. That you would allow that truth to be your true north, and remain unshaken when you get a little turned around or lost in your own achievements and trials.
I am in awe how the Holy Spirit can speak to our hearts in different, yet powerful ways when reading the same chapters.
This was my second time reading 2 Samuel 5. There were so many things that stood out to me when I read it yesterday that I just knew in my heart that the Lord would reveal something else to me about it today – and I am so glad this was the case. I am glad that He did.
I hope you have the opportunity to read this chapter as well. If you do, leave a comment! I would love to read about some of the things that stood out to you most.
I once read that “Artists must account for their disappearances.”
I can’t exactly remember where I read it…but I believe it was in a book either by Mokoto Fujimura, Austin Kleon or Paul Arden…I’ll figure it out and update this post later J
Well, today I am accounting for my recent disappearance.
It’s the holiday season (my favorite time of year), so I totally understand if most of you probably didn’t realize I was even less active on social media than usual over this past month…and for those of you who did notice – here is my artists account:
Over the past week and a half, I’ve been behind closed doors creating new ways to use my art! I created a survey in order to gather my family and friends input on their interest in blogging. I worked with a coach to finish building out my Blog Like A Boss curriculum (Nyrka Riskin is a wiz). I have gained 3 paying clients who I am working with 1:1 to pour all of my expertise and knowledge into. I have also begun building out a 1-day Blog Like A Boss workshop (if you’re interested in learning more about this workshop give me a shout out here!)
Yup, I’ve been up to quite a bit! Working hard to launch my formal blogging business and guiding newbie bloggers through the often messy waters of launching blogs of their own. Ultimately encouraging them to Blog Like A Boss!
My passion and hope is to help as many people as possible find and articulate their unique gifts and experiences, and share them in a way that makes others (and ultimately the world) a better place.
I know that starting a blog, something so public and personal, can be a bit scary. In fact, that is the most common question/concern that I field in regards to blogging.
"Isn’t it concerning/strange to put so much out there on the internet?"
When we talk through it, I usually encourage future bloggers by saying:
“As much as you feel comfortable with…allow yourself to be seen & heard."
As much as you feel comfortable with…allow yourself to be seen & heard. Letting the world see the unique gifts and passions inside of you. Sharing your thoughts, experiences and encouragements with others both inside and outside of your current spheres of influence. Blogging is about leaving a legacy, and sharing your dreams and hopes with others who may one day become a part of your journey.
Blogging has been one of my greatest gifts. The Lord has given me the sweetest, and kindest interactions with people that I have never met – all through my willingness to be vulnerable and share parts of my story with others who are working through similar things in their own journeys.
I once heard that some of the best and most rewarding experiences are scary at the start: new jobs, first kisses, potentially life-threatening travel adventures, making new friends, having difficult but necessary conversations, marriage proposals, having children…I could go on-and-on.
The same is true for blogging.
You want to hear the secret to Blogging Like A Boss? You ready? It’s going to really blow your minds!
So, what's the big secret to blogging?
The secret to blogging like a boss is – you. Yes, you! Your passions, your dreams, your hopes, your essence is the secret sauce that will make your blog beautiful! Your unique combination of experiences and life lessons is what makes your digital space its own momentary respite for a future reader who wants, and maybe even needs, to hear your inspiring voice.
Welp, now that the secrets out – I hope you will embark on your own blogging journey in 2018! And I hope that you will trust me to be your guide along the way, because I’m all in!

Growth, true growth, happens over time.
Success, true success, is developed over time.
As the muscles in our bodies must tear in order to grow back stronger, so too must we encounter trials, hardships and successes in order to grow stronger still.
When we find ourselves in a difficult season, whether in life or career, let's encourage one another to steady.
When we find ourselves in a high season, and it seems like everything is going right, let's encourage one another to steady.
Steady our hearts.
Steady our minds.
Steady our actions.
Let us not allow ourselves to become so overwhelmed by our trials that we neglect to recognize the trials for what they really are...unique opportunities for growth.
Let us not allow ourselves to become so arrogant in our successes that we neglect to recognize those moments for what they really are...unique opportunities for growth.
What's the not so secret ingredient for continual personal and professional growth?
Thanksgiving - the time of year for obligatory overstuffing, spending quality time with the people you love, resting and meditating on all of the things that you are infinitely thankful for. Even though most of us tend to overlook the origin of this day of feasting, it has always been, and continues to be, one of my all-time favorite holidays.
Growing up, my entire family would travel from all over the east coast to spend time together. Cooking, eating, laughing, and catching up on each others lives at a noise level that far exceeded the 60 decibel average of a normal conversation.
We also made the annual mecca to celebrate my grandmothers birthday, November 22nd, and often fell on or around Thanksgiving day. There was always so much to celebrate, and we sure did make the most of the occasion.
Over the past few years following the passing of my grandmother and grandfather, my family has had an increasingly difficult time coordinating these Thanksgiving gatherings like we so organically did when my grandparents were alive. Sometimes family dynamics change, and without a matriarch or patriarch present, a new rhythm can form - but we each know that the love is always there!
"The food to people ratio for this years Thanksgiving was ideal."
As a single woman in my late twenties, Thanksgivings over the past few years have looked a bit different for me. Nevertheless, they have all been marked with quality time spent among people I love and cherish. I am beyond blessed to say that I have been given the opportunity to spend this Holiday with framily (a word I reserve for friends who are like family).
This year, instead of Thanksgiving party hopping (a food tour which I tend to do so well), my bff Alyssa and I decided to have a super chill Thanksgiving. We crafted a menu that consisted of our absolute favorite Thanksgiving dishes, cooked them up and spread everything out on the table all at once, community style!
Here are a few pictures of the massive spread we created!
Now, I must admit, the food to people ratio for this years Thanksgiving was more than ideal. And you better believe we made the most of it!
WHAT'S ON THE MENU!
We also watched one of my all-time favorite Holiday movies, The Family Stone. If you haven't seen it, I strongly recommend searching through the $5 dvd bin at War-Mart or buying it on iTunes.
"I am keenly aware of the Lords many mercies in my life. And I am grateful for them all!"
THINGS I'M THANKFUL FOR THIS YEAR!
There are so many things to be thankful for! I would be truly remiss if I didn't share with you some of the wonderful reasons why I am so incredibly thankful.
I am keenly aware of the Lords many mercies in my life. And I am grateful for them all! What a truly good Father he is, and has always been, to me. Keeper of my heart, protector of my life, provider of all my needs - My Lord is everything and more to me. I quite literally cannot tell my story without the frequent mention of His name.
My Loved Ones
I have been blessed with some of the most amazing friends, family and positive influences in my life. People who I respect deeply, who are loving, caring and encouraging. Who believe the best in me, and teach me new things about the love of God. We grow together. Navigate life together. Trust each other, and celebrate one another. I count myself lucky to know you!
My Art & My Readers
Over the past year, my love for writing has continued to grow. I am learning more and more that writing requires a level of courage and vulnerability. Enough vulnerability to verbalize what's in your heart, passions, questions, challenges and experiences. And enough courage to share those things with the world, regardless of what others might (and will) say. There is also a dash of hope mixed into that equation. Hope that your courage and vulnerability will be received by just one person who needed to hear it. I am infinitely grateful for this gift of art!
I am so grateful for each of my loved ones and friends who engage with my art! You are some of the kindest, most encouraging people on this here planet and I am beyond blessed by you. Thank you for your positive words, and how you so willingly share your hearts and thoughts with me. Trusting me with your experiences, lessons and truths. I love you always!
Wow, time flies! It has been over a year and a half since I bought my house. This space has been a sanctuary of sorts, an introverts haven, a comforting and peaceful home and one of my all-time, greatest investments! I am blessed to have been able to buy a home so early on in life, and I hope to continue stewarding this precious gift as best I can!
If you can, write down all that your heart is meditating on this Thanksgiving season. Don't be shy in recording why you are grateful for these things either. Another year will come and go, and you will forever be reminded of the good and perfect gifts you have been given in this season.
Welp, gotta go! These left overs are calling me ;)
I hope this parting letter finds each of you well. I am infinitely proud of you. My heart and hope is that you have allowed your time in higher education to stretch and grow you as a leader, and have postured yourself to learn as much from engaging with your fellow classmate as you have from reading your assigned textbook.
As a final letter, I wanted to share with each of you a few of the greatest lessons that I have learned (am continue to learn) thus far throughout my collegiate and professional career (these are listed in no particular order). I hope these tips will be helpful to you in navigating your own unique journey!
1. NEVER STOP LEARNING:
Be intentional about dedicating time to continue reading and researching new things. Share the new knowledge you learn with others, you never know what a simple tip could unlock in someone else's journey.
2. CONTINUE BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS
Though the time sitting among your fellow classmates has come to an end, I encourage you to continue connecting with others who are willing to share their experiences and lessons with you. Learn from them, and use this knew knowledge to help you make more informed decisions in your own life. You don’t always have to make the mistakes yourself in order to learn from them.
3. LISTEN TO THE LORD'S WHISPERS
He is always speaking to us, comforting us, encouraging us when we need it most (and especially when we don’t think we need it at all). Find time to listen. Become sensitive to the guiding of the Holy Spirit in your self-reflection time, personal relationships and professional careers.
"I challenge you to spend the rest of your life finding ways to serve others with the gifts that you have so graciously been given..."
4. TRY. FAIL. LEARN.
Have a new idea you want to try? A new book you want to write? A new product you want to launch? A new job you want to take? Go ahead - try it! But first, take time to prayerfully consider it. You can also invite trusted friends and mentors into the process of accomplishing that goal (because who wants to go it alone anyway). This life is short. Never let the fear of failure stop you from creating something new!
5. LET EVERYTHING YOU DO POINT BACK TO GOD
This is right up there with the best advice that I can possibly give to each of you. Let everything you say, do, and become point graciously back to the One who gave it all for you - for us. The one who did so willingly and without remorse. Cling to His promises, and regularly reflect on if the things you are creating, the success you are pursuing are motivations for doing so are in line with this His mission and His will for us.
This life is short. Never let the fear of failure stop you from creating something new!
6. USE YOUR EDUCATION WISELY
You have been given the wonderful gift of a formal education. Never take that for granted. There are people around the world who spend their whole lives fighting (literally) for an education, and there are many are never given the opportunity. You HAVE been given this opportunity! I challenge you to spend the rest of your life finding ways to serve others with the gift that you have so graciously been given, and in whatever capacity the Lord has appointed you to do so.
I always have a difficult time with good-bye’s, so I’ll stick with a genuine “see you around.”
Please know that I am always here for you! I throughly enjoy staying in touch with my readers and providing them with guidance that will help them launch their into their dreams!
Grace & Peace,

Think about the times when you experienced a genuine connection with someone who wasn’t a romantic partner. Where were you and what were you doing?
Maybe you were driving down the highway together, rocking out to 90’s music. Maybe you were taking a walk around your neighborhood or nursing a glass of wine in one hand and a big bar of dark chocolate in the other. Maybe you took a spontaneous 4-day trip from Florida to Los Angeles with a friend (like I did that one time), traveling across the country and collecting memories and stories along the way.
We live in a digital age. Cellular devices that were once the size (and probably weight) of bricks, now come in hundreds of sleek and lightweight options. Cell phones and apps have become our life lines and our security blankets, our matchmakers and our plus ones.
Let’s be honest, we can hardly walk into a coffee shop or sit in a restaurant without seeing someone with a phone in their hands (or being that person ourselves). Most of us check our phones the very minute we open our eyes in the morning.
These pocket-sized sidekicks are commonly accused of hindering our ability to truly connect with others, and are said to do more harm than good in cultivating genuine relationships.
Today, we’re challenging that concept.
What if technology isn’t the enemy? What if connecting to technology could help us better connect with our loved ones? What if, instead of viewing technology as a hindrance to our relationships, we began seeking out ways to leverage its unique capabilities to deepen our friendships?
Now hold on, I’m not talking about simply double-tapping a friend’s Instagram post, occasionally retweeting an old roommate or leaving a long civil comment on an ex’s Facebook page. I’m talking about using forms of social media to create real and genuine connections that deepen the special bond we share with those we care about.
So, how do we grow in relationship with one another in this digital age?
Here are five free apps that can help us cultivate relationships with our loved ones, no matter how near or far they may be:
1. Roadtrippers Trip Planner
Create an epic road trip with friends that you’ll never forget! Map out each stop, search for hotels along the route, view road trip itineraries, take pictures and make memories. This app will have us sitting in the passenger’s side of our best friend’s ride in no time!
Music has the extraordinary ability to convey some of our most cherished thoughts and emotions, reminding us of seasons past and marking memories in the making. Spotify’s music app allows us to create collaborative playlists and share new and old music with friends. Whatever song we’re vibin’ at the moment, we can instantly share it with our loved ones on Spotify!
This app is, hands-down, one of my favorite not-so-guilty pleasures. In seconds users can create collaborative Pinterest boards with friends. Now we can work together to plan the next vacation or “staycation” adventure. Share recipes, DIY’s, travel destinations and outfit inspirations at the click of a button.
4. Map My Run
With this app we can keep our workout buddies, even if they’re a thousand miles away. Map My Run allows users to view and compare routes with strangers and friends. So go ahead, challenge someone to a workout competition or create a group step challenge … because a little friendly competition can go a long way.
5. Paperless Post
Sending a birthday card to a loved one? Planning to get the gang back together for a much needed framily reunion? This greeting card and event planning app is a must have. Choose from Paperless Post’s digital inventory of cards and invitations, add customized event details and send e-vites directly to friends and families email addresses. This app can even set reminders for when we should send cards to our loved ones each year! With its trendy designs, easy to use interface and built in guest tracking system – it is the perfect house party planning assistant!
I believe that we each have the power to utilize technology in a way that will help us continually cultivate meaningful relationships with our loved ones.
So play on – new stories and adventures await!

Ever feel like you need a vacation after your vacation? I know it might sound crazy, but you’re not alone.
Recently I returned home on a Sunday evening after a wonderful 5-day vacation. Almost as soon as the plane touched down, waves of anxiety began to wash over me. Monday was only hours away, and I felt completely unprepared.
Thoughts of the enormous workload awaiting my return, both at work and at home, consumed me. I felt frazzled, and completely ill-equipped for the work week ahead.
I was driving home, trying in vain to categorize each of my anxious thoughts when Philippians’s 4:6-7 came to mind: “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
After meditating on these verses, and taking several deep and prayerful breaths, I almost immediately felt the soft waves of God’s peace wash over me. I resolved that I was not going to grant this anxiety power over me, and potentially undo the peaceful rest that I had worked so hard to create over the last five days on vacation.
I chose to respond to my anxiety by creating a new strategy, and so can you.
I made a list of 5 things I could do that evening to help me take on the coming Monday.
These practices didn’t take me long, radically reduce my anxiety levels and had me feeling encouraged and empowered to take on the week ahead
1. CLEAN OUT THE CAR
Take a moment to toss the junk mail, empty your half-full water bottles, wipe the crumbs off the seat and organize the miscellaneous items lying on the floor. Perhaps you could even swing by the gas station to top off your gas tank, and buy a quick car wash. Come Monday morning, you’ll feel less stressed while in route to the office, and if you get stuck in traffic you won’t be nervously glancing at your gas meter.
2. TIDY UP THE KITCHEN
Does your sink have a couple of days’ worth of glasses, plates and coffee mugs in it? Take twenty minutes to clean it out, wipe down the counters and load up the dishwasher. It may seem like a small effort, but when you prepare your coffee/breakfast tomorrow morning you’ll thank yourself for doing it!
3. REVIEW YOUR CALENDAR
Briefly look at your work calendar and make a short list of action items and priorities that you want to accomplish. Remember to set yourself up for success by creating realistic work expectations. You’ve just been out of the office for quite a while and it could take a day or two to catch up on your work.
4. GET ACTIVE
Go for a 30-minute walk, jog or run. It is proven that exercising releases stress, relieves anxiety, improves our overall health and makes us feel good! I recently picked up the hobby of rollerblading around my neighborhood. Not only does the act of physical exercise calm me, but it allows me to meet and greet neighbors and friends that I normally would not see as frequently.
5. PLAN YOUR OUTFIT
Monday’s are the perfect day to dress for success. Looking good and feeling good can kick-start your week off right, and give you that extra boost of confidence you need to take on those back to back meetings like a pro.
In all, completing numbers 1 through 5 took me just under 2 hours, and was worth every minute. I went to sleep swiftly, feeling confident in my ability to take on the morning to come. I recommend you make a checklist, and a few days before you travel attempt to get ahead of them. For instance, you could clean your car out prior to heading to the airport. You could plan your outfit based upon what clothes you don’t pack, that way you know the items will be clean whenever you return.
Ideally, we could all try to incorporate more time between the end of our vacations, and the beginning of a work week; however, when a vacation after a vacation isn’t possible, I recommend doing these 5 things to help you reset and recharge before the work week arrives.
Taking steps that set you up for maximum effectiveness and success is almost always worth it.
Recently, a close friend and I took a spontaneous 4-day trip to Los Angeles. We "hopped off the plane in LAX" around 10PM without a single itinerary, schedule or checklist.
I hear the collective gasps of all of you planners out there. You all are probably breaking into an open sweat just reading about the fact that we had no carefully laid out plan. We knew we had lodging and a car rental covered, and that was enough for us.
We did have ideas of things we wanted to do, and each morning we would spend about 20 minutes talking through where we wanted to go. We looked up addresses, and mapped out a rough order for the day. This strategy really worked well for us, and we were able to do and see so much in such a short period of time - all without being exhausted by the end of the vacation. Winning!
Shortly after our trip, another friend of mine reach out to me for travel recommendations. She was gifting her teenage daughter with a visit to L.A. for the first time and wanted to get a feel for some fun, must-see places they could check out around the city.
I ended up spending over an hour creating two different detailed itineraries, each consisting of things to do with only 1-day in L.A. and 1-day in Southern California. I was sure to add addresses and some miscellaneous notes to make it even more personal.
I absolutely love curating these itineraries after visiting different cities around the world! This one includes some of my all-time favorite places in L.A. Enjoy!
