Monday Motivation

Monday’s can bring up a lot of negative thoughts and emotion for people who aren’t living the life they want and deserve.

There is dread for the week ahead, frustration for what still is, envy for where others seem to be, and a sense of feeling stuck in the muck of it all. I know, I feel you. I’ve been there and I had felt all of those feelings for years. I understand you. You are not alone. You are just a bit off course and need some help finding your way back.

We were not put on this earth to have a crap life. Are there crap parts of everyone’s life? hell yes! Overall life is designed to be beautiful, exciting, peaceful, abundant, scary, and exceptional. When we get stuck in the muck, those beliefs go out the window, which end up keeping us frozen in place.

No you may not be where you want to be, but you have come so far. Just maybe not on the exact timeline you prefer. Nothing is ever on our time, that’s an illusion of control. Everything is on Universal time. Everything is happening at the perfect time, whether we see it and understand it, or not.

B R E A T H E…You are ok. Part of the path to greatness requires getting lost. You won’t be lost forever. 💜, Tiffany

Creating a Clothing Line and Turning it Into a Successful Online Brand and E-Commence Store, with Guest Monica Agana, Founder of Savage Babe EP093


The magic of finally saying, “Fuck it!”

When the pain of our current job, relationship, or situation becomes greater than our fears of the unknown is when we enter the “Fuck It Zone.”

When we are beaten down (sometimes literally) and sick and tired of being sick and tired, we either give up or we go for it! I’m someone who always goes for it and I’ve never regretted it once. The only things I regret are not saying, “fuck it” sooner than I did.

At some point every successful inventor, innovator, and entrepreneur said, “fuck it” (in their own words) before they went after their dream, their vision, their calling.

Today’s guest is no different; she said “fuck it” to a high-paying corporate job to start an apparel brand and a community with a deeper purpose than crunching spreadsheets all day.

Monica Agana is the Founder of Savage Babe Collection. A brand for women who felt trapped from being who they truly wanted to be. After years of experiencing physical abuse, constant bullying from other children, societal pressures, and pursuing goals that others wanted her to pursue, it led to feelings of unworthiness that lingered with Monica into adulthood. After years of working on her personal development (and still continuing to), she finally broke away from the chains of her past.

How I Lost 3/4 of my Net Worth in 3 Months, and Earned it ALL Back Again Plus Some

Perfect day to share a bit more of my story, how I lost 3/4 of my net worth in 3 months, and earned it all back again, PLUS MORE!

You see. I used to be an overly trusting person with very few boundaries. I thought if someone I trusted referred me to someone, then that person must be trustworthy as well (even if I never met them before!). Or if I knew someone or worked with someone for many years, I put that person in a “trust for life” category, since they hadn’t ever screwed me over in X many years.

I got hired at 20 years old by NBC as a television news reporter (before I even graduated college, and yes I still got my degree.). After several years in the TV news business, I was burned out and needed to make some real money. I got into the pharmaceutical sales world and became quite successful at it. By 25, I was already making 6-figures. So I saved, invested, saved some more, and followed the wealth strategies I teach all of you.

I was worth 7-figures before I was 30. CUE THE DRAMATIC 🎶… In Sept, I was a millionaire and by the new year, I was knocked back to where I was 5 years prior. It took my breath away. I thought I was on the right track and entering the next big level. Was I broke, no, because my protocol for building wealth has protections in place to prevent street living. Imagine 75% of everything you ever worked for starting at age 13 (yes my mom made me work at 13 😳), was gone practically overnight and there wasn’t a damn thing you could do about it. Whether that’s $1000, $10,000, or $1,000,000, it’s not pretty.

The “how” of this story is at the beginning of this post. I didn’t have good or even basic boundaries and I put blind trust in someone, meaning I didn’t do my own due diligence on the person, their skills, reputation, etc… I trusted them because I trusted the person who referred me to him. Well often in life our biggest lessons are expensive and painful AF.

After a month of wallowing in self-pity, I was determined to make that money back and much more. I knew I couldn’t create the wealth and freedom I desired from working in corporate pharmaceuticals. Although the pay was great, the cost was also great! The pressure was so high, I was always getting sick; sexual harassment was the norm, and by that I mean multiple times a week #metoo; if I wanted to keep climbing the corporate ladder, that price would go even higher.

So in spite of being terrified to leave what I knew, my gut told me it was time. I started my own company, my rules, my vision, my goals, on my timeline. Within 3 years, I made all of the $ back I lost, and more importantly I gained a sense of pride and empowerment that I lost in that corporate jungle.

The Fake Followers Epidemic and How to Grow your Instagram Following Quickly, the Legit Way EP092


Racking your brain trying to figure out how to get more followers and likes on Instagram?

You plus millions of other people are trying to figure out how their friend down the street who is basic AF has 25K followers, or how some random dude with weird car photos has 7k follows, or worse a girl boss in a similar field who seems to be growing by thousands of followers per week while you’re still stuck at 753. WHAT GIVES?!!!

It probably leaves you feeling like you must be doing something wrong, or maybe you aren’t cut out to be a coach, an entrepreneur, an influencer, or in affiliate marketing….sound familiar?

This is the point where a solid percentage of people wave the white flag and buy followers and even likes. They are tired of trying to figure out how to grow organically and want a short cut, the easy way out. Well, the “easy way out” ALWAYS comes with catch.

Don’t worry, I won’t leave you hanging…on today’s podcast I will tell you why you shouldn’t buy followers or likes, and what you can do instead to grow your Instagram the legit way.

It’s Not About Ideas. It’s About Making Ideas Happen!

How many of you are like me 🙋‍♀️and come up with some great ideas in the shower? Or while sharing a bottle of vino 🍷 with friends? It’s so inspiring and exciting to come up with creative ideas, and conversely it’s a big buzz kill to realize you never followed thru on any of them.

Don’t get me wrong brainstorming is a part of the creative entrepreneurial process. However, none of those cool ideas matter if there is no action or plan behind them. It’s fun to come up with solutions and kick-ass marketing strategies, in fact it’s one my fav parts of running a business. Putting those ideas into action is when 99.9% of people get stuck. You want to know why?!!! BECAUSE THAT’S WHERE THE WORK COMES IN.

Maybe you don’t know where to even begin to make your vision a reality, so here comes extreme overwhelm and then paralysis. Maybe some false beliefs start chatter in your head to sabotage your dream, “oh that will be too expensive and I don’t have extra money, so why bother right now.” Que paralysis yet again.

I totally get it. I’ve been there many times. The good news is I obviously figured out a great way to move ideas into action without paralysis, so I can teach you my methods. In the next 2 months we will be launching several ProjectME courses. One will be on how to smoothly take your dreams from ideas into implementation.

In the meantime, write those crazy, kooky, brilliant, off the wall ideas down or record them on your phone. Our ego will often have us forget things that our scary or seem out of reach for us. That’s why when you have a BIG IDEA in the shower on Wednesday (so BIG you know you will never forget it), by the time Friday hits, that idea is totally gone or really foggy. To prevent your ego from stealing your dreams, document that shiz. That could be your multi-million dollar idea 💰 💡.

Finding your Inner Sparkle after Life has Crushed your Spirit, with Guest Jenny Taylor, the Founder of the Wildly Successful Jenny Taylor Boudoir Photography and The Sparkle Tribe EP091


Everyone has a secret that you can’t see.

It can be easy to fall into judgment especially when scrolling social media, assuming “that” woman’s life is near perfect, after all they look so happy, healthy, and wealthy!

I’m hear to help you snap back into reality and out of the fantasy land thinking that can start making all of us feel less than, discouraged, and even depressed.

Both ladies on this episode and in the above photo have lived with many dark secrets that you couldn’t see from the outside. In fact, everyone thought their lives were incredible, traveling the world, driving luxury cars, owning 7-figure businesses, and throw in a fairy-tale Paris wedding to a handsome rich suitor.

Sounds pretty damn good right? Except they both were slowly dying inside one day a time.

Take a time out today to tune into this raw and real discussion between two survivors, and you will learn how to find that inner sparkle again, just as they did.

Jenny Taylor is the founder of the world famous Jenny Taylor Boudoir Photography which is the nation’s premier boudoir & glam photography studio over the past decade. Her clients range between 21-85 years old (some even being popular reality stars like Scheana Marie from Vanderpump Rules.)

Back in 2015, Jenny found myself in a living hell, and felt trapped in an abusive relationship.  She knew that she needed a huge shift in the way she was living her life and decided to do the very hard work of diving deep into her past. Jenny wanted to pay forward all that she learned during her personal transformation so she created the Transformational Life Coaching Company “Sparkle Lifestyle” which includes One on One Coaching and Luxury Women’s Retreats.

Wealth Tips with Tiff

 

Typicality I share my wealth tips on Wednesday Wealth Tips with Tiff, my higher self is screaming at me to share these with you today. So here we go!

Gaining wealth consistency is not a one lane highway. To have wealth that continues to grow requires interstates, highways, freeways, and even toll roads. It’s important to not put all of your eggs in one basket. Meaning all of your income generating shouldn’t just come from your primary job. There’s only one of you (if there’s more than one of you I’m jealous), and only about 8-12 work hours in a day that you can execute. So if you stick with your job being your primary source of income, then you will only increase your wealth when and if you get a raise or a bonus check. NOT A WEALTH GENERATING POA (plan of action).

Since there is only one of you, to accelerate your financial growth, you will need to create a passive income interstate, a residual income road, and a savings strategy. It may sound overwhelming, so I suggest baby steps.
Start with one interstate, one road, and a simple savings startedgy. Here’s a simple example of what my money roadmap looked like initially 👇:

Primary Income came from my Marketing/PR/Social Media firm. My passive income (meaning how I made money when I wasn’t actively engaged-while I slept) came from investing in mutual bods (though a financial adviser) and stocks. My residual income (money you earn long after your initial effort) came from network marketing high end skin care products. So skin care systems I sold to people who regularly refilled their order monthly or quarterly, without me having to “re-sell” them the products. Not all network marketing companies pay the same, so it’s crucial to partner with a brand you love that compensates you well for suggesting it to others. I’ll have an entire podcast dedicated to this subject.

Savings Strategy: this deserves its own paragraph. Saving money = making money. You can gain great wealth by saving overtime. In fact the ROI (return on investment) with saving money is often higher than most other investments like real estate, stocks, and bonds. I’ll do a dedicated IG live to “Saving Strategy.” Be on the lookout for it today.

5 Things you should know before starting a YouTube Channel EP090


Not sure how many of you know this, but I have been pouring a ton of money, time, and energy into something that is completely free to all of you.

To the point where recently I thought, “what the hell am I doing, this is crazy!” Of course I didn’t think it was crazy when I started, I thought and felt all of the things many of us do when we start something new….excitement, nerves, passion, hope, and fantasying about all of the amazing things to come.

Then the high wears off after the results don’t pour in like we fantasized about or even worse expected. I’ve been an entrepreneur for 11 years, so I know that things take time, typically much longer then we would even like.  For whatever reason, with my new TV Show ProjectME TV with Tiffany Carter, based on YouTube, I found my self  with 11 episodes in feeling discouraged and doubting my decision to go all in with top-notch production, sound, glam, and editing.

“This is costing me a small fortune to produce plus a ton of time and I barely have any views, what gives?!!!!!” I even thought about putting it on hold. Even as I’m typing this I’m laughing at how entitled and ridiculous I sound. Aside from the small percentage of first time videos that go viral, since when does someone get a shit ton of engagement on YouTube after posting 11 episodes without any advertising.

That would be like someone creating a blog from scratch with 11 blog articles and wondering why they don’t have a solid number of readers, comments, or sponsors.

So as with everything, I thought this would be a good teaching experience for all of you. For anyone who is interested in starting a video based channel or really anything digital for that matter, this episode is for you.

3 Steps Towards Developing and Understanding Yourself

To up level our lives, it requires us to take a deep inventory of ourselves; our behaviors, beliefs, habits, character assets, charter challenges, and our actions. This by the way isn’t easy or comfortable, but it is necessary and well worth it.

You can certainly try to reach your next set of goals without doing the inner work, but I guarantee you won’t be happy with the result. I know this because I actively tried to avoid that work for many years, and I couldn’t figure out why I felt stuck and nothing was working. Although I was working my ass off and I was taking massive action and risk, I was a mess, unhappy, and unfulfilled.

When I finally got sick and tired of banging into the same rock wall, I surrendered and asked for help, to dive deeply inside. Doing personal development work each and everyday has taken me from surviving to thriving. I’m a better boss, a better negotiator, a better problem solver, a better friend, fiancé, and an overall better me.

You see if we don’t take the time and actions to learn how we get in our own way, then we can’t get of our own way to grow and achieve bigger, grander, amazing things. WE deserve the best in life and WE are worth doing the work to be our best selves.

Here are some action steps you can take today to get the process going:
1. Suscribe to some personal development podcasts that resonate with you ( mine will be launching here in 2 weeks, ProjectME the Podcast with Tiffany Carter). Just search “personal development podcasts.”

2. Buy a @tonyrobbins book 📖 or listen to books on @audible_com if you prefer. Other great authors I love are @melrobbinslive@iammelwells @brenebrown @jensincero@thechampagnediet @loriharder@louise_hay_affirmations.

3. Write 📝. If you don’t have a cute journal it’s ok. Use what you got, write in your notes app on your phone 📱 during lunch. Whatever writing ritual you create and stick with is what will serve you best. Free write on your biggest fears, insecurities, dreams, feelings and so on. The authors I listed above will prompt with you with questions to write about.

Taking action in developing and understanding yourself is one of the greatest acts of self-love.

How to Create Facebook Ads that Convert into Leads and Sales, with guest, Lorell Lane Facebook Ads Expert and Founder of The Social Sales Lab EP089


When should I start doing Facebook ads? How much do I need to spend for results? Is it worth doing? Why aren’t my ads making me any money? What am I doing wrong?

I get it! Spending a minute in Facebook Business Manager as a newbie is enough to put your stomach in knots. Hell, that can happen to me and I use the platform daily.

You probably don’t know this about me, I’ve spent millions of other people’s money designing and managing Facebook ad campaigns for corporate clients since Facebook ads started many years ago.

Pressing that publish button is scary when it’s your own money on the line, it’s actually a more uncomfortable feeling than gambling in Vegas, at least then your expectation is that you are likely to lose. With Facebook ads, most people have the belief that they should make back more than they spend, in fact it should be at least double.

You guys are smart, if it was that straightforward and simple, every single company would be pouring their entire advertising budget solely into Facebook advertising.

With Facebook ads, knowledge isn’t just power it is necessary to have a solid chance of a great ROI. I brought on a Facebook ads expert to answer all of your questions and clear up any myths .

Lorell Lane is the Founder of The Social Sales Lab, an online program helping business owners scale thru Facebook ads

Lorell started her career in the corporate world working with major TV networks such as Univision, NBC, the CW, and Viacom to generate millions in sales by creating ad campaigns.
