THE TRUTH IS, NONE OF US 100% KNOW WHAT WE’RE DOING.
It’s time to kick our egos right in the balls. I’m sick of mine holding me back. How many times has your ego held you back??
The common factor I’ve found in my most successful clients is they aren’t afraid to admit they don’t know what they’re doing. They’re actively asking and applying advice without fear of what others will think.
We’re all just here to learn from each other so let’s drop the ego and help each other win. 👯♀️
BEING REAL IS A LOT EASIER THAN MAINTAINING A LAME ASS FACADE.
A big part in my authenticity journey has been realizing I’m freaking cool just how I am. Once I settled into my true self in RL it became so much easier for me to be myself online.
And honestly, it’s a forever journey. Today I realized I still have so much BS in my online presence that isn’t me. So get ready for even more of my unfiltered thoughts.
Who’s with me???? Let’s turn social media into like the coolest club where everyone is accepted and can let their freakiest flags fly. WELCOME TO THE #KINZCOCLIQUE
YOU ARE A BADASS. YES, YOU.
Can I tell you something real quick?? I don’t know where I’d be without you, babe.
I get so many emails each week of people who have been referred to me by YOU. So many of you I’ve never spoken to but you still give my insta handle and website out when people are asking for designers and branding work.
It might seem like a small thing to you, but to me it’s literally everything.
When I quit my job in January I had ZERO business plan. No clients lined up. No savings. I just knew I had to do it and that the timing would never feel just right.
Fast forward to last month when I doubled my business revenue for the THIRD time. I couldn’t do it without you. I couldn’t do it without your trust and referrals. I couldn’t do it without this online community of women who are seriously kicking ass. You all inspire me in different ways everyday.
I don’t know what I did to deserve you, but all I gotta say is AINT NOBODY EFFING WITH THE #KINZCOCLIQUE
5 WAYS TO ATTRACT MORE PEOPLE TO YOUR INSTAGRAM:
1. Show up. Be yourself. No one wants to follow a dormant, boring instagram account.
2. Take your content seriously. A few months ago I realized I was complaining about something I wasn’t even spending time with. Instagram takes time, effort, and strategy. Treat your account as you would if you were running a million dollar businesses account. Be intentional.
3. Hang out on Instagram where your target customer is hanging out. Aka what accounts are they following that you can follow, interact, or collaborate with? But ALSO never mass follow and unfollow. Ew. Nothing authentic about that.
4. BE UNIQUE. Stop trying to compete. Realize you are a sparkly, unique goddess and work on building confidence in what makes you different.
5. Stop worrying about gaining more followers. Engage with your current followers. Instagram respects and rewards you when you are using their platform actively.
6. Get on the waiting list for Badass Branding School. There you’ll learn how to bring more customers in FLOCKS to your biz.
OK SO WHAT DOES AUTHENTIC EVEN MEAN??
People DM me all day long asking how to be more authentic in their biz. Spoiler alert, baby. Authentic isn’t something you can just turn on.
Authenticity happens when you stop trying to be someone you aren’t. When you realize who you are and show up as that person instead.
It’s when you stop running your business the way other people are telling you to run it, and you start running it the way YOU think it should be.
I’ve said it before but people will want to buy whatever you’re selling or doing because it is YOU they are buying from. So show them the real you!!
Wallpaper designs up in my stories!!
I FREAKING LOVE MYSELF AND TAKE ACCOUNTABILITY FOR THE REALITY I’VE CREATED THUS FAR.
The kindest thing you can do for yourself is take accountability for your actions.
Do you understand how much power you gain back when you accept the fact that you are responsible for the life you’ve been living?
We’re so so quick to hand over the power to other people. To the job we hate. To the rude email we woke up to. Those things aren’t who we need to blame. It’s how we react that’s the real culprit.
With every choice we make, we are creating our reality. When was the last time you made a choice that your future self is going to be FREAKING thankful for?
Babe, that thing you were complaining about earlier? It’s your fault for handing over your power to it. YOU’RE POWERFUL. START ACTING LIKE IT.
PSA TO THAT THING HOLDING YOU BACK.
That thing you’ve been thinking about doing… what’s stopping you?
It will be scary. It will be uncomfortable. People might think you’re crazy. DO IT ANYWAY.
Look your excuses in the face. Acknowledge them. And DO IT ANYWAY.
I just pulled sales reports for the past 4 months and I have consistently doubled (or more) my sales EVERY SINGLE MONTH. 😭
A year ago I was full of excuses. “It’s not the right time.” “I’m not self motivated enough.” “Health insurance.” “Blah blah blah.” 2018 Kinzie decided to DO IT ANYWAY and you should too.
Wallpapers up on my story, baby. What’s your fave color combo out of them?
3 WAYS TO SHOW UP AUTHENTICALLY... TODAY!!!:
1. POST AN INSTASTORY talking about why you do what you do everyday. Why you show up and keep chasing your dreams.
2. POST A SELFIE Literally show up and show up to stay on your Instagram feed.
3. RESPOND TO ALL YOUR DMs and every comment. When you are a huge business with hundreds of thousands of followers, you won’t be able to do this anymore. Dedicate time each day to spend in your DMs. (I’m the worst at this one, but I’m trying 😌)
Not so hard right??? What are you waiting for?? Tag me in your posts, I’m excited to see your face, baby.

THE MORE AUTHENTIC YOUR BRAND BECOMES, THE EASIER IT WILL BE FOR YOU TO SHOW UP.
I’m not here to help you build a brand like your competitors. I’m here to help you find your unique place in the market that feels aligned with who you are.
When you build a brand similar to everyone else you will have a lot of competitors. When you build a brand that is exactly who YOU are, the only person you have to work to be better than is yesterday’s version of you.
It takes time. It takes courage. You have to set your stupid ego aside to let the truest version of you come forward. But it becomes easier, everyday. I promise.

THIS IS MY LOGO. A sassy smile and a freckled face with fierce brows.
The most important logo in your business is your face. People buy what you’re selling because YOU are selling it.
So worry less about showing up looking perfect and work more on showing up consistently.
The more authentic our brands become, the easier it becomes to show up. Because it feels really good to be ourselves in business.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s SCARY to show up as yourself. It’s much easier to hide behind your business because it doesn’t hurt as much for someone to hate your logo. But guess what? The haters will come no matter what. Don’t let them dull your sparkle babe. You were born to SHINE.

YOUR DREAMS AREN’T OPTIONAL, OK?
They come to you as a road map for your life. Head towards them relentlessly and the pieces will fall into place.
So many people NEED you to pursue your purpose. Not only will it make you happier and more fulfilled, but it also will bless the lives of everyone who comes in contact with you.
Our purpose doesn’t have something huge like end world hunger. Your purpose could be to help women find themselves and feel powerful in the products you sell.
Chase your dreams. They’re your responsibility, baby. 🌈
HAPPY IS NOT AN END GOAL.
I’ll be happy when I quit my job. I’ll be happy when I make six figures. I’ll be happy when Justin Bieber dumps Hailey for me.
If you’re making these “I’ll be happy when” statements, it will always be an unreachable reality. Start telling yourself a different story. Start saying I AM HAPPY.
Happiness is not an end goal. It’s an everyday way of living. It’s waking up in the morning excited to live your purpose. It’s smiling when you look in the mirror and realizing you are enough.
It’s giving without expectations. It’s living in a state of gratitude. It’s knowing who you are and accepting your imperfections.
I am happy today. Thankful for the life I create everyday for myself.
YOU NEED TO LEARN TO IGNORE YOUR BULLSH*T EXCUSES.
Why are you playing small? What excuses are you making up? I’m so sick of all the self sabotage I see with my clients, friends, relatives, and ... myself.
Excuses are BORING and LAME and USELESS. So start ignoring them and get to work.
If you find yourself always making excuses, download this wallpaper to remind you to ignore your own bullsh*t.
IT IS TOTALLY SAFE FOR YOU TO BE YOURSELF.
Never before have we had more freedom. Freedom to express ourselves. Freedom to let our freak flags fly.
Don’t waste it!!! Be your most authentic, wild self. Do what makes you happy. Wear what makes you feel sassy. Eat what makes you feel amazing.
Show up in your business!!! Show up on social!! The world is hungry for more of you. You’ve got something to say. Start saying it!!!
