[Werbung / Kooperation] „Hallo, mein Name ist Zahra Robrahn und ich bin die Inhaberin von LoveandletterDesign. Ich lebe in Pfungstadt, eine Kleinstadt im Landkreis Darmstadt-Dieburg. Schon immer war ich gerne kreativ und habe gemalt. Bereits als Kind konnte ich nicht genug Zeichen- und Bastelbücher haben. 2016, kurz nach der Verlobung mit meinem Mann, habe ich mit dem Handlettering angefangen um unsere Hochzeitspapeterie selbst gestalten zu können. Hauptsächlich durch Bücher habe ich mir die wichtigsten Techniken selber beigebracht. Schnell ist dann auch das Malen mit Watercolor dazu gekommen. So nahm alles seinen Lauf. Am liebsten illustriere ich Tier und Blumenmotive. Aber auch andere Motive wirst du in meinem Shop auf der Plattform Etsy finden. Außerdem fertige ich auch immer wieder individuelle Handletterings oder Illustrationen an. Das wichtigste ist mir, den Menschen mit meinen Prints, Karten etc. eine kleine Freude zu schenken. Mein Shop steht für mit Liebe gefertigte Papeterie für Groß und Klein. Herzliche Grüße, Zahra @loveandletterdesign

Six months ago I stepped outside the social media hampster wheel and started writing for large publications.
I did what nobody else was doing with a skill (writing) that I hadn't yet developed.
In just six short months I've been published and featured in over 20 different publications such as MSN Money, Fast Company, Entrepreneur, Bamboo HR, Glassdoor, Forbes, and the list goes on.
Although I started my business closer to two years ago, I didn't fully step into it until about six months ago.
I struggled, felt lost, insecure and impostor syndrome ate me alive on a daily basis.
When they say "mindset is crucial" they aren't joking. My weak mindset is what held me back for so long, personally and professionally.
There were times I laid on the floor crying wanting to give up. There were times I questioned everything about my journey.
There were times I thought I was a joke for even trying to pursue this path.
... but I kept at it. I built my audience from being a nobody to now being a somebody that people reach out.
I developed a strategy, fine-tuned my writing, have the confidence in scaling my business, marketing and selling my services and being authentically true to myself.
The most rewarding feeling is seeing my clients make their breakthroughs as they gain exposure, attract high-ticket clients, build a loyal team and increase their $$$.
The power of investing in the right people to take your business to the next level is invaluable.
If you're ready to strategize your next steps and take action to build an empire - shoot me a PM and let's schedule a strategy session.
Treat yourself for the holidays!🎄
“Vulnerability is the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, courage, empathy, and creativity. It is the source of hope, empathy, accountability, and authenticity. If we want greater clarity in our purpose or deeper and more meaningful spiritual lives, vulnerability is the path.” Type YES if you agree! #brenebrown #luminarylessons

How to Turn Off 🚫📹🖥 Video Autoplay on Facebook and Twitter
This episode is about turning off the video autoplay in your Facebook feed and your Twitter feed.
Some people are fine with it. Some people don't realize that they could turn it off. Some people, it drives them crazy.
A while ago now, goodness, I think it was a couple years ago, there was a horrible tragedy that was captured on video and the man who perpetrated the tragedy uploaded it. I believe it was to Facebook. I don't know about Twitter, but I believe it was to Facebook. And with that video autoplay feature, people were ... it got shared because people are like, "Oh my gosh, I can't believe this happened."
So, people would be going through their Facebook feeds and this tragedy basically unfolded right before their eyes. And they kind of had no choice but to see it.
I was one of the lucky ones that it did not pop up in my feed, but I was PO'ed. I don't know if your kids are listening to this, 'cause I really want to say what that stands for, but I was really, really angry that that was even allowed to happen.
I went in and I searched and searched and made sure I found a way to turn off that stupid autoplay. And I will tell you, I have loved not having autoplay on.
Ads don't autoplay. I don't automatically get sound. I don't have this visual going on in front of me. I make the choice whether or not I want to start that video.
I am going to share with you that you can turn it off on both of them. You do not have to have it autoplay in your feed...

Are you using third party apps to like posts, comment and follow/unfollow on your behalf? If you are, then you need to STOP now! It's never been something we would recommend you do but Instagram has announced new plans to crack down on anyone doing this. Plus they will be removing inauthentic likes, comments and follows from accounts that use third-party apps to boost their popularity. This is great news for all of us that work hard to grow our community on Instagram.
If you do get a notification from Instagram asking you to change your password because you shared information with an app offering followers or likes, don't panic! You may have done this unknowingly, just change your password and be careful which apps you use in the future!

There are so many personalities you have to deal with: your staff, your vendors, your guests. Oftentimes it can be back-breaking and be 70 to 80 hours a week....You really have to love it—and be a little crazy to do it." —Annie Pettry, Executive Chef & Owner, @deccarestaurant.

“Well behaved women rarely make history.” 👱♀️⠀
As I work on my book, this phrase keeps popping into my head.👆⠀
I know that some of the things I’m writing may (read: will) offend some people. 🤭⠀
But the world doesn’t need another safe, vanilla, middle-of-the-road message, does it? 🤔 Bookstores are already full of that nonsense. ⠀
The world need LOUD bitches to preach about taking charge, taking back their lives, and fighting mediocrity. 🗣
Can you HEAR ME?!
CYBER MONDAY SALE!!!
2019 is right around the corner. I KNOW you can’t bear to enter another year stuck in your corporate 9-5 prison. I certainly couldn’t. That’s why I left mine at the end of September. And I am madly passionate about helping you leave yours.
Here’s the pickle:
• You’re probably overwhelmed by all the different “strategies” you’ve heard about in the online space and can’t seem to figure out YOUR strategy.
• You’ve invested in courses and programs, but nothing is moving your business forward. You’re just running in the hamster-wheel.
• You know that if you don’t start bringing revenue into your business, you’re going to remain trapped in your 9-5 corporate job.
• You feel like you’re missing something, but you have no idea WHAT you’re missing.
• You’re hesitant to keep investing in more THINGS, fearing they won’t work either.
• You’re desperate for clarity and solid plan of action.
How we get you out of your pickle:
Once we have built the foundation of your business by identifying your dream client and a clear niche, creating a magnetic brand message that connects deeply with your dream clients, and building a communication and connection strategy that resonates with your dream clients in a way that makes them feel seen, heard, and understood, we HAVE to create sustainability so you can finally leave that 9-5 job.
It’s time to stop throwing your money at programs and courses that aren’t working for you. Invest in working with me, one-on-one for 6 months. I will guide and support you and hold you accountable so you’re propelling forward in your business to create the success and profitability you desire.
In my 6-month, From Employee to CEO Coaching, we’ll go through my signature ARF structure to tackle mindset blocks that are holding you back, release limitations that have you feeling stuck, create a solid foundation for growing your business, and SO much more.

This beautiful custom bracelet I created last week.
It’s a combination of pink opal, pink tourmaline and rainbow moonstone. In the some of the images you can see the gorgeous blue flash of the rainbow moonstone 😍
I love the combination of these stones and soft colour shades 💖
I MADE A PROMISE TO MYSELF...
It was September, a mere FOUR MONTHS into my full time business venture (with a little job on the side--because JUST IN CASE) and I was in tears.
I was overwhelmed and swamped, I hadn't showered in days (entrepreneurlife, right?), and on top of that...
I FELT GUILTY that I was overwhelmed and stressed.
I thought, Jess--how can you possibly be stressed about having everything on your plate you prayed for and dreamed about for months and even YEARS? 🙈
Everything was happening, but that was part of the problem. I was doing EVERYTHING, because I was scared to say "no" for fear of it vanishing into thin air. I felt ungrateful about wanting less.
But in that moment, I promised myself I would take a mini-sabbatical over Thanksgiving break.
I knew I had to teach myself NOW that my business could survive a break, I could plan for it, and I could actually take the break instead of letting my calendar take over my life like a traumatizing cross between Jumanji (the OG one) and Smart House (worst nightmare).
So, here I am, on Tuesday of Thanksgiving week with just one client call to polish off my work week. I'm taking the Wednesday-Saturday to hang with my pup and my hubby, try new recipes, and purge my home of clutter.
No client work.
No content creation. (Except for Stories--my happy place)
My heart feels grateful for the opportunity to do this amazing entrepreneur thing, and my soul is breathing a deep breath of space for a few days.
How do you plan for breaks? (If you don't, maybe YOU SHOULD!)
Sometimes the direction is clear. ☀️
Other times it’s a bit foggy. 🌫
And sometimes, it’s downright dark as night. 🌑
As uncomfortable as it is to navigate in the fog or the dark, I’m learning to go slow, trust that the road lies before me and keep moving forward.
Just like the lights on your car break through the fog and the darkness to shine light on the road before you, taking action in your business creates clarity for the path ahead, as well. Something I’m learning all too well from @jameswedmore
It may feel scary, unknown or even dangerous, but by continuing to drive with my lights on (aka TAKING ACTION), I continue to see more bits and pieces of the road ahead of me.
And it turns out that taking action also inspires more confidence that things are going to work out - even when everything feels overwhelming.
Is there something in your business right now that feels scary, unknown or dangerous? Maybe it’s hiring a team and becoming a leader. What ONE action can you take to drive through the dark to gain clarity?
Someone snuck in the yard... they're so happy about it ❤️ this is one reason we do not put chemical pesticides anywhere around our property - we have organic (essential oil based) #farmlife
Even if your voice trembles and your hands shake, be louder. Make more noise. Let the people you are meant to serve know you are here for them. That's how you'll change the world.

Life is tough, but so are you. 👊🏾
As a business owner, do you struggle to clearly communicate your message? Even worse, are you not clear on exactly what you’re offering, or who you serve?
These business basics can actually be very tricky. One of the very first things you need to do when setting up a successful business is nail down your messaging, so you can effectively communicate with your audience and customers.
If this sounds like something you are struggling with, this can be SO harmful to your business but don’t worry, I’ve made a video to help you with just that.
From figuring out what makes you unique, to how to best relate with your customers, my newest video covers it all. This is the first of a four-part series on marketing your brand, so be sure to watch and stay tuned for the next!

Does fall tend to make anyone other than me absurdly reflective? I’m just reveling in the nostalgic sound of leaves crunching underfoot and trying to decide my absolute FAVORITE thing about autumn. I really love the fall smells and enjoying a hot chocolate and grilled cheese by the chimney, and wearing my cozy @vspink
What’s your favorite thing about fall?

We've all made money mistakes.
Even Warren Buffet has made big financial mistakes!
Just a different kind than most of us.
When faced with your personal finances, how do you deal with financial stress?
It took me a long long time to let go of my past money mistakes.
I definitely had my fair share of meltdowns throughout my emotional roller coaster journey to financial independence retire early (FIRE). Here are 7 ways to help recover from money mistakes and create money flow... https://www.notabondgirl.com/blog/money-mistakes-manifest-financial-miracles -
