Howdy! I’m Stella, cofounder and curator of Elliott St. Don’t worry, I probably won’t show my face again for a while, because selfies (of myself) are my least favourite part of social media. But what I LOVE about social - especially Insta - is the creative inspiration, connectedness, and community-building. ⠀
Truth be told, business and me haven’t traditionally sat comfortably together. Especially the profit-making component! Now that support for our handmade shop is starting to take off, we thought it was time to reallocate some money to those who need it. So for the month of November, we’re donating our 30% commission from consignments to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre @asrc1
- an organisation that advocates for refugee rights and supports refugees in the community. ⠀
By buying your Chrissy presents from us now, you will be supporting makers AND supporting a really cool non-profit organisation. Check out our wares @elliottstonline

Over the last couple of days I’ve done a lot of talking about websites, SEO, and digital marketing in general during my 1:1 coaching sessions. Sometimes these sessions can be information-overload, I won’t lie, because I try to cover all the things for you, and create a plan of attack to move forward in your business. At the end of our session I can see the “holy shit this is a lot” fear in your eyes, and I absolutely understand this overwhelm, but you know what I always end the session with that instantly puts people at ease? •
It’s that, everything is figure-out-able. Because it actually really is. And that’s what I do for you - figure it out, create a plan and help you execute it. •
And that fear in your eyes fades away and we all live happily ever after 😁

Two age positive crusaders.
Shared love for sparkley things. .
I admire what Mia Freedman and her team Mamamia is doing for women and girls and yes, I may be a little bit obsessed but I know I’m not alone. Her honesty, authenticity, integrity resonate with many of us. You go girl! @ladystartups

Umm yes please!! This just looks like heaven right now, doesn’t it??!!
My online business existed for three years ... only in my head. I planned everyday what I was going to do to make progress ... and then I made excuses everyday for why I couldn't do those things.
I never gave up on the IDEA. But, I gave up on the ACTION. Like, every single day I gave up on the action.
Until one day I get fed up. I gave myself a deadline. That's not something that I recommend for everyone. But, for me, it gave me the kick in the ass that I needed to get started.
Back then, I just needed the urgency of a deadline bearing down on me or, I was never going to stick with it.
No matter how much you learn. No matter how much you organize or plan. At the end of the day ... it's 100% up to you and how much action you take each day.
Your dreams can't come true simply by writing them down in a planner. You have to actually open your computer, navigate to the software or platform, and DO THE WORK.
Every. Single. Day.
Today seems like as good a day as any :)
Do you want to build & grow your brand? Are you trying to sell a product or service? Would you like to expand your business reach? If you answered YES to any of these questions then you NEED someone managing your Social Media posts. Most business owners don’t have the time to come up with and schedule creative & engaging content, so leave that to someone whose business it is. Think about all the other services you outsource because it’s not YOUR field of expertise, Social Media should be at the top of that list! CLICK LINK IN BIO or DM if you’re ready to take your social media to the next level!
Let them be your reason, or your excuse.
Did you follow the @pandanational
page? It’s a great place to remind yourself that parenting IS hard and you’re most definitely not alone if you’re struggling.
We’ve been supporters of these guys from the beginning, and give them $1 from every pack of our baby cards, whether you buy them from us or one of our gorgeous stockists.
This week is PANDA week, and the theme is ‘I wish I knew’ - and one of the resources that’s been launched this week is a mental health check sheet. It’s a great way to check in with yourself and see if what you’re experiencing is normal, or if you might need a little more support.
I’ve almost finished a very special project for a very special place! I love doing custom blends - getting a brief and then nailing it... It’s such a great feeling!
We love this little tip from #ladystartup @the.brain.child
- "I've been scheduling my social posts for a few months now and it has saved so much time. It might not be very impulsive but automating processes means that this Mumma gets to be more present around my little ones.
They are only little for such a short time, my girl is 6 today and it has gone so very fast. I don't want her to grow up but she is and she represents one of my best creations."
Get your ass up and out the door, move that sexy bod!
➕ lift energy and mood
➕ prevent disease
➕ improve strength
➕ get even sexier
Question from other aspiring VA's: How much does it cost to start a website?
Answer: A website is a very small investment. You can spend approximately $10 on a domain name and $10-15 month on hosting.
For a simple site, check out: wix.com or squarespace.com for nice looking sites with templates that you can update relatively easily.

Let’s stop making our offers SOOO difficult to create...⠀
Webinars, beautiful PDF’S, long group programs, courses that make you want to pull your hair out.⠀
I’ve been there.⠀
I’ve had times where I thought I had to be like others and make my offers PERFECT.⠀
But I’ve also seen most of clients making everything too perfect that the $$ gets lost in translation.⠀
Let me run through some ideas on how to make some of your offers easier:⠀
> Instead of doing prerecorded videos for a course with long slideshows, do a LIVE course where you go live in an exclusive fb group for each lesson. Then when you finish everything you can evergreen it. (this is by far my fave)⠀
> Instead of doing a live webinar, do a live video in your Facebook group, delete it when done (first download it) then evergreen that!!⠀
> Instead of doing an elaborate pdf that takes hours for you to produce the content then another few hours for either you or someone else to design; do a live video of the content and then send it to a designer(edit: maybe a VA that is good at designing) to create it for you.⠀
Instead of thinking about how others are doing something, think about how you can make it easy on yourself.⠀
If you want to be a high performer, you’ll have to act like one.⠀
Want to know the 3 marketing strategies to sell out your next offer?! Check out the link in my bio! ⠀
Stop making your goal such a big fucking deal. ✨⠀
What you want is actually normal AF.⠀
It’s not this scary, mysterious thing that you’re not capable of.⠀
And if you want it, you want it for a reason.⠀
There’s a science to bringing it in and maintaining it without all the stress and drama...⠀
You can actually have it as soon as you decide and take the necessary steps to make it happen.⠀
Normalize it. And then do what it takes to get there.⠀
You’ve got this ✨⠀
What's your next goal? Drop it in the comments and we'll manifest it together! 😘
Sometimes it takes having a breakdown a breakthrough! ⠀
The past few days, I’ve been in breakdown mode BUT I know my breakthrough is coming! ⠀
I know I’m up leveling! ⠀
I know big things are on their way! ⠀
Because I am not a victim of my circumstances! ⠀
What happens to me does not dictate where I’m going! ⠀
THE SAME GOES FOR YOU! ⠀
It’s okay to have a bad day! ⠀
It’s okay to honor your body! ⠀
It’s okay to give yourself some grace! ⠀
But the people at the top, the people you look up to....they don’t quit after one bad day! ⠀
They get back up and the run full speed ahead! ⠀
It’s time to focus on where you’re going not what you’re going through!! ⠀
Where your going is bigger than where you are right now! ⠀
Be resilient! ⠀
Be unstoppable! ⠀
You have everything you need inside of you to make massive things happen!⠀
You get to choose that right now, you’re making a shift! ⠀
You get to choose that NOW is your time! ⠀
Are you going to be a victim or a victor? ⠀
Believe in yourself, pick yourself up, realign with your message, and run towards your dreams! ⠀
You’re the only one in your own way!⠀
I believe in you! 💋💋 ⠀
Sometimes having an online business can *feel* scary/hard because people can be crazy/mean/hurtful/blameful.⠀
Because what if you do the “wrong” thing?⠀
What if people take things out on you?⠀
But I will never stop doing this work anyways.⠀
I will never stop shifting the fear.⠀
And learning from it.⠀
I will never stop setting higher standards.⠀
And coaching people.⠀
I became a coach because I deeply care about human beings.⠀
I always have and I always will.⠀
No amount of shade will shut that down or take that away from me.⠀
I will never get cold.⠀
But I will always trust myself and back myself up based on what I believe is right.⠀
It is safe to be me.⠀
It is safe to fully honor me.⠀
Even if that means not being liked or understood.⠀
It is safe to re-enforce my standards for how life and business gets to be for me.⠀
This beautiful set has just sold, but the earrings are still available in blue and will be back in purple before my sale next week ❄️
Your either growing or your disintegrating.
You cannot create new when your still stuck in what happened yesterday, old habits, old experiences or old thinking.
You need to loose your mind to get a new one.

🤞🏼My rock when I’m falling apart.
So many things have transpired for me since @mogulcon.
Great news, good news, and just plain old bad news. I am dealing with the situation by staying in the moment of each one and focusing on the task at hand.
Today I want you to be in the moment of whatever situation you are in. Allow your presence to take in and process what is happening, how it is happening, and how you can bring beauty to it all. Sometimes that means to just be there and be quiet.
Be present with your today. Whatever you don’t need for today, leave it. Your growth and your presence are needed for your future. Focus on learning something new today. Make it your point to move forward, make it your point to grow. Today is your day.
