As I officially recover from the holidays (That were paired with a good dose of family dysfunction;-) my brains jolts back into a entrepreneurial mindset of ‘all the worlds we are going to rule’ in 2018–I decided to assemble a lil’ list of complete and utter badass ways to drop a little Q1 2018 coin and kick off the new year off in a world-ruling fashion. Naturally–I’ve decided to share it with you. (**Many of these amazing women are offering promotions just. for. us. Note: most are limited in their availability so let’s not procrastinate, shall we?)
GET A LIFE (Coach that is.)
Every boss needs a little gut-check now and then. A little clarity- kick-in-the-ass as it relates to life and biz. (because ’round here we find them one in the same.) Coach Carrie Wren is offering a 6 month coaching program aptly titled ‘Good Girl to Grown-ass woman’ to our Live Loud crew for a discounted rate. –Pre-pay that beyotch and invest in yourself and your biz. Stat. PS: not ready to make the leap just yet? The first (10) folks who mention The Live Loud Collective and want to see what this life coach thing is all about a complimentary 90-minute coaching call. (You all–I did this call and she really needs to be charging for it. Shhhh…snag it before she reads this. #worthit) Get the rest of the deets here.
2018 is the year you finally ditch the papyrus font and shitty iPhone pics and truly brand yo’damn self in a professional manner, isn’t it? (Just say yes. Ain’t nobody got time to attract clients that aren’t a fit (see here for an ass-kicking reminder.)
The best way to do so? –Be utterly and unabashedly you. So unless your brands screams ‘discount aisle’-stop putting less than a chic-ass branding foot forward with these offers:
Our friends at Asterisk Creative have a mad-awesome 25% off services including branding, graphic design, web design, video, social media & public relations. (Psst: Complimentary 2 Hour strategy consultation normally $300 for the first (3) to snag it! Go here)
Want to expand your brand? Pasha Davis Designs is offering a’brand-enhancer’ session for $200. Hop on a short call and uncover alternative revenue streams for your already-booming brand. Every whip-smart woman knows there is more to life that one one revenue source. (duh.) Let Pasha help you find yours.
**Shameless plug** My biz, Blue Sky Photo Artists is offering a $500 gift certificate towards your full branding Empowered Portrait Experience for $150 bucks for the first (5) to go here and grab their spot. **promo code ‘badass’ (certificates will be mailed the second week in January for use by the end of March.) This branding experience starts with a series of ‘get real’ calls to know more about you/your biz and ends with photography session followed by a SAME DAY reveal and photo selection and will live you feeling ‘cat-walk’ confident about your brand new, branding.
Yes–your LuLa Ro’s are fine for the home office. But once you are out in the world let’s represent our brands accordingly shall we? (yes–Im talking to myself here.) Spend some dollars the way of fellow entrepreneur Kathryn Moczulski , from Styled by Kathryn and her “Wardrobe Styling and Image Design for the Successful Woman” program coupled with a 90- minute personal shoppong session (valued of $120) Confidence is sexy and surely, though the ‘clothes don’t make the woman’..they certainly don’t hurt our feeling when making us feeling a little Beyonce’.

IT’S ALWAYS PARTY_PLANNING SEASON
Remember that one time I planned our Live Loud soft-launch event whilst trying to run my current biz and get this group off of the ground? #badidea I called in reinforcement in the way of savvy event planners like every good business woman should. #outsourceya’ll $300 bucks to have someone take the hair-ripping responsibility of planning your next event for your biz? Um. Yes mam. Aisha Thomas of Aisha Thomas events is running this load-lightening promotion for us of $300 bucks to plan your next event! ($500 value.) Get that client appreciation event on the books and lift less fingers doing so. Check it.
TECH YOUR HALLS
Last year was the year for all-the-systems in my biz. (interwebs, data recovery and back up and process flow, yo.) Charlotte’s coolest geek, Sharon Jones of The Dot can take the less-than-tech-savvy to legit starting with a COMPLIMENTARY (for the first 5 only!) tech consulting call w which offers an understanding the basics of how powerful technology can be to move our business forward including the software we use to analyze sales, customers, revenue, or how to reach more customers via relearning etc. (I saw your eyes glaze–do it woman: necessary not-so-evil.
SELF-CARE…PARTY OF ONE
Don’t be the chick who posts motivational quotes on “self-care” and then works 16 hours days, feels stress for not spending time with hubs and kiddos whilst washing it all down with a few bagel bites and 42 cups of caffeine. (or cabernet.)
These three fellow bosses are offering up the entire self- care aisle for us Live Louders.
Buy five sessions of massage and Bodywork from lady boss Sandra Weber at Integrative Body Works and get one free! Start 2018 off with yourself as a priority. (Pretty sure the #treatyoself hashtag started here.)
Samantha Eaton, the one-woman show of Healthy Eaton is legit ya’ll. ( I did her 30-day cleanse last year and learned a ton.) She is offering “Meal Planning & Prepping mega-session” for $50 off (normally $200) to teach us how to set ourselves up for healthy eating success all week long without spending all day Sunday cooking, and how to easily include lots of variety in their meals to not fall into a food funk. Sign up here. (see earlier comment on all-thecheeses.)
KIDDO CARE=SELF CARE
Squeeze in a date night or maybe a day to 2018 plan…without littles under foot. ( I see you smilin’, mama.) Charlotte’s Best Nanny Service is offering 15% off the price of our Babysitting services to our members! Childcare can be a big expense. Why not pre-purchase a block of sitter and take that tax write off?
Alrighty ladies–go and snag a few (or all!) of these perfectly new year-worthy offerings specifically for our Live Loud Members from fellow fearless and fiery women entrepreneurs and either consider it an amazing way to kick off Q1 business expenses. )
Cheers to an a totally UNSTOPPABLE 2018!
