It’s been a long time coming, but I’m so excited to share the stage with a dear friend of mine, Ms. Brittany Bentley. She is CEO/Founder of Marketing/Advertising Agency Melanin BEINGS! #StayTuned #KenyaDesigns
Do you ever drive yourself crazy by trying to make yourself fit into a space where you don't belong? When I started using my website to drive sales and sharing information so many people said that I should blog. That was going to be how to drive traffic to my site, how to grow my mailing list, how to get sponsorships, etc, etc. Y'all I love to write but I SUCK, yes capital SUCK at blogging. Not because it's not a great space but because it's not MY space. And the more I fought with myself to become what is considered to be a traditional blogger the more miserable and confused I was. I am not a blogger, I'm a content creator and an educator in my own way. I share my information, do microblogging here on Instagram, in my Livestreams, and in my emails. I will probably never have a traditional blog and I'm ok with that because that's not my lane. I say all this to say, even if other people are having success in one area doesn't mean you have to follow their path to have your own success. Give it a try but if it doesn't fit your style don't be afraid to move on.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What have you tried and realized just isn't for you? I'd love to hear in the comments.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It's my business birthday! Two years ago today, I took this business full-time. It's been a wild ride and I'm so grateful for the awesome projects I've been able to work on, everything I've had the chance to learn, and the amazing people I've met along the way. I'm looking forward to the new directions this work is taking me, and I'm looking forward to sharing it with you. Stay tuned.

Whew!!! Today marks 2 months since I embarked on my new healthy lifestyle. I made it a point to CELEBRATE my progress by posting pics.
I'm down 8 pounds and I'm slimming down a lil bit.
This journey is teaching me DISCIPLINE, CONSISTENCY, AND SELF-LOVE.
I started this journey because I was unhealthy, overweight and VERY DEPRESSED. I had no energy. I was eating fast food EVERY DAY. I was a MESS. I talked so negatively to myself. I was slowly killing myself.
As a result of my changes I eat better, sleep better, think better and speak better to myself. Im learning how to love myself more, too.
Here are some things I learned:
1. Don't compare your journey to others. Who cares how fast and how much weight someone else lost?
2. To see lasting change, realize that it's a lifestyle that requires a DAILY commitment.
3. The first 30 days is the honeymoon.
4. The next 30 tests your consistency and tendency to give up if you tend to start and stop things.
5. Choose exercises and activities that work for YOU. For example, I don't run because it's hard on my knees and discourages me from working out.
6. Try new foods and prepare as much of your own food as possible. Drink more water.
7. Don't jump on every fad or weight loss supplement. Research if you do, but gain control of what you eat. Nutrition is KEY.
8. Commit to your goal. Get accountability partners.
9. Focus on your health habits, not the scale. Keep a health journal.
10. Love yourself at your current size no matter what.
11. ELIMINATE EXCUSES AND DISTRACTIONS. I knew my hair would be an issue so I got braids.
Remember, this is YOUR journey. Ignore the naysayers.
I'm happy with my results and I'm feeling myself more each day.
Who are you? What’s your purpose?
While this existential query has been “the” question since the beginning of time…
But when it comes to business you can’t afford to think in philosophy.
Your social media bios should tell the world exactly what you do in the simplest terms possible. No industry jargon or fancy words.
Ours says: "Helping brands of all sizes find their voice online"

AI (Artificial Intelligence) is definitely taking the place of customer service. Is that a good thing? 🤔 #chatbots #customerservice
When aiming to persuade an audience on a given product/service, it's key to understand the difference between Benefits VS Features. Pitching your product more effectively can help you win the war on limited attention spans.

Oh my god can agencies stop calling themselves a “partner”! You are not a fucking partner, you don’t share the risk, you don’t make the business decisions, you are not responsible for the outcomes, you are never indispensable. You just work for the client. They can fire you, they can say “just do it this way” they know you are trying to make as much money as possible from them without pushing too far, they know they are not your only client, they know if a bigger more profitable sexier client comes along they are relegated. Just be real, get over yourselves and be a fucking great service provider, be so fucking good they call you their mates because they know you will bleed for them. Overstating your importance and relationship is the ultimate sleaze bag, used car salesman move and I see it constantly. At the end of they day it’s their business and they are strapped to the outcomes, you are just involved! #getoveryourself #rant #agencylife #brandstrategy #creativeagencies #branding #brand #marketing101 #fail
