    The Venture Update

    Hello my lovelies! How are you liking the new website revamp? Honestly, I revamped it because I really wanted to transfer my website from Weebly to Wordpress. It was better for SEO in the long run and has much better plugins. However, I didn't know of any way to directly transfer my site without having to start over from scratch and migrate everything manually (I asked the rep, they advised me it was not possible). So I ended up having to redesign my entire website! I mean, it wasn't a big deal. I actually like designing websites and mine ended up turning out better than expected so I'm quite happy…

    CURRENT FAVORITES: Citrus Bliss Vegan Facial Moisturizer by Oriwest

    ​​I've been using the "Citrus Bliss" vegan facial moisturizer by @Oriwest over the past few days and I'm loving it so far! If you're a supporter of small Canadian businesses, Oriwest is definitely one you should be checking out. They source high-quality ingredients and showcase them in beautiful, clean packaging (totally Instagram-worthy and would sooo leave the empty containers around my house simply as decoration haha) Also, can I say how freaking lovely the packaging is? I'm sorry but I'm totally in love with the design of the whole brand from the packaging of the products to the pamphlets, the brochures, just everything about the brand screams minimal & zen!   Pros   Upon…

    The Secret to How I Plan My Content on Instagram: Later Vs Tailwind

    Social media planning can be a daunting task especially for someone who is just starting off a brand new account. Trust me, I know and I've been there. You know you have to be consistent with it but sometimes there are days where you just don't know what to post. Hence, why having a content planner is a must. You want to schedule and plan your posts at least a few days or even weeks in advance to avoid the mishap of posting simply for the sake of posting. Once you begin to run out of content and start to post  whatever just to fill up your feed well guess what,…

    Are You Building Something to Leverage Your Time? The Next Steps of My Journey

    Last month I picked up on the basics of using a DSLR camera, learned how to edit photos, use Wordpress & also touched a bit on SEO. I'm also proud to announce that I successfully managed to sell my Belle Luxe dropshipping store! I would say the month of April was a huge milestone for my self-development. I revamped my social media completely; I fixed up my Facebook, LinkedIn & Pinterest,  focused on building my Instagram account, made an Inspire to Be More Facebook page and helped to grow Hustle Nation to 91 members! Suffice to say, there is still a ton of work that needs to be done but…

    How To Be Confidently Visible (Even If You’re An Introvert) & Improve Your Online Presence

    If you're an introvert like me then you know how difficult it is to go and put yourself out there to the public. I've only begun to recently become comfortable with self promotion. At the beginning it was nerve wracking to post anything online especially in front of my friends, family or people who knew me personally. So when I decided to take my blog public, you can only imagine how nervous I was when I posted it to my social media. ​ The moment I hit "post," immediately my thoughts went rambo and all of these questions started to flood my mind. "What would people think of what I had to…

It widens our vision. – Robert Kennedy ​​The other day I decided that in order to help my boyfriend get back on track and motivate him, we would work on developing a skill together. We decided to take an online class on HTML & CSS. Taking on this activity together made learning fun and kept us motivated the entire time. ​ Not only did we watch a Skillshare class together but we also decided to watch a Netflix show in French with English subtitles. While I do admit, watching the show in French was quite difficult to understand, the English…

    How I Landed My First Client On Fiverr

    That feeling the moment you land your first client. I already had two previous clients for logo and business card designs but those were for my friends. This is actually the first time I ever landed a complete stranger as a client online. And it feels amazing! This man was nice enough to give me a chance even though I had no reviews at all on Fiverr. The best part of it all was he was actually one of my followers on Instagram and the moment I posted my Fiverr gig up, he messaged me about it. I got so excited I jumped on it right away before he could…

    What is Fiverr? Another New Endeavor

    Funny how I was just saying a few days earlier that I would stop myself from starting new projects and focus on completing only one or two projects. But I figured this would only be a side gig...  After all, it takes time to obtain clients and it could just be a little extra side hustle part-time. Who knows when will be my first client right? At least, that's what I keep telling myself. I know, I'm so bad at focusing on only one thing. I am still in my experimentation phase and trust me, I am a very curious one as you can see. Anyways, I decided to start…
