TODAY ON THE BLOG: 6 Habits Shared by ALL Small Biz PR Success Stories...
Let me break it down for ya: EVERY stinking time someone tells me they are doing everything I ask and teach in terms of getting publicity for their business, I run through a little Q and A around the topics on this list. And EVERY TIME I asked them if they can 100% promise me they’re doing these things, the answer is no.
I’ve been teaching small businesses, entrepreneurs, express how to get the positive themselves and their businesses for over a decade, and I see success story after success story every single week from my student body. I can promise you, when we talk about how and why they are rocking so hard, it’s because they are all doing these six things…

“I love all your shit talkin’
You ain’t got nothing better to do with yourself

Caught back up with where I left off, been making a lot of new work, dropping from my head to my heart.
Where to find me at the party: a) with the host’s dog 🐕 b) micromanaging the bartender 🍹 c) plotting my Irish goodbye 👋🏼🏃🏻♀️
I will be watching the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society over and over JUST for the enchanting English countryside aesthetic. ————————————————— What are you guys watching/reading/or listening to right now? Audiobook recommendations are welcome as well.
We tend to limit ourselves by the lies that have been spoken over us. Some of the lies are so subtle and sneaky that we don’t even realize that they have become a stronghold on our life.
The walls and limitations in your life that keep you bound are only there because of lies you are believing about yourself. Most of the time these lies settle in because of something someone has said to us. We let these lies take root in our lives and grow.
But God. What He says about us is true. In the book of Revelation, He is called Faithful and True. He has truth for every lie that you are believing about yourself and He is faithful to speak that truth to your clearly. He wants to uproot every lie that has been spoken over you and fill it with life and truth. Ask Him what the truth is and set yourself to listen, because when you ask Him to reveal His truth to you, He will speak.
Orange you glad it’s the weekend? 🍊
You don't need patience around reaching your goals.
You need determination and faith.
Embrace the full certainty
Know it's already yours.
Decide you're having it.
What can you decide to trust to be true about yourself?

We’ve noticed that many of you love to read. Maybe having a magazine attracts readers?🤓 We loved hearing from you a few weeks ago about what you’re reading.

This cozy spot is a secluded patio off of our Boho master bedroom, great for sipping coffee or relaxing with a good book during the day and stargazing at night. Round Top's remote location allows you to see tons of stars without those pesky city lights, but is only an hour and a half in between Austin and Houston. Just another reason to love this little town! ⠀
Today’s final post for the Back to Cōllege Essentials series is all about FOCUS 🙇🏼♀️
Everyone has their practices of what helps them to truly focus. For me, my entire freshman year was a struggle because I couldn’t figure out what worked for ME.
But after trial and error (and it’s changed some since graduating) here’s what I’ve found to work for me:
🔸Have some sort of espresso/coffee/tea drink - this helps signal my brain to “lets go” mode
🔸Being in a noisy place - I cannot study in a library, it’s too quiet! And I hate having head phones in because I feel like I’m oblivious to my surroundings and it makes me feel claustrophobic 🤷🏼♀️ but when I’m in a bustling coffee shop or a place with a lot of commotion, it fuels me! **getting out of your bedroom/apartment is v helpful too!**
guidelines on how to structure your work day was also SO helpful to me! When you sit down and work for a period of time (no longer then 90 minutes at a time) for every 30 minutes of work/studying, give yourself a 15 minute break! But in that 30-90 minutes you have your distractions off and hustle ON ⚡️ it gave me something to work towards and helped me learn to work SMARTER with my time.
🔸and lastly, my InTune blend is 💯 it helps support my body with mental clarity, focus and concentration. It helps support my body with any nervousness or anxiety while giving me that extra grounding to balance my activity. It’s also UHmazing for that afternoon slump! I roll it on the bottoms of my feet, behind my ears, temples, and in my hands to breathe it in through my nose so it targets the receptors in my brain that it’s work tome!
What tips have you found to help you get your focus on? You can grab InTune for 25% off in the link in my bio!! I can’t wait to help educate you on these empowering tools and watch you focus your heart out this semester!

A rainy Saturday equals photo shoot day! Behind the scenes of our product prepping today for one of our new HOME & HOSTESS gift boxes coming soon! And by “soon” we mean next week!!!🤗
Spots on spots on spots on spots 😍😍 I met @jackson_the_dalmatian
for the first time about a year and a half ago (right before his brother Bennett who is here in the photo with him joined the family!). He came to a styled shoot we were photographing with @skylar_caitlin
and I CRIED MY EYES OUT when he arrived because I was SO excited to meet him— I call it my “ @kristenanniebell
with a sloth” moment. I had been following him on Instagram and was infinitely more star struck to meet him that I have been with any human celebrity I have ever photographed. He has been in front of my camera multiple times now, but I still get giddy when I get to hang out with Jackson and his clan! See both his brothers in our Insta stories today— and swipe right to see my Dalmatian-Selfie-Turned-Kiss-Fest 💛💛
We love a pretty, elegant soirée but we enjoy a bug themed party just as much or possibly even MORE! 😜😬😆 #allforthekids #snackbar
Last weekend I got dressed up because I don’t often these days
Not the best lighting , setup nor the most significant quote but that baby hand reaching for the flower, ooh, that’s what I cherish most. .
You say “I want a themed party”. We COMMIT 💯‼️ Swamp juice, bug eyed cups + all 😂🐞🕷🐛😬
Şu sokakta olan tam 6 tane fotoğraf attım bugün, bu da son. Hepimiz böyle güzel sokaklara uyanalım ne diyebilirim ki
Have you ever wondered if this is even possible...to rapidly grow your business by authentically being yourself?
When we're all inundated with fancy photos,
perfectly written copy and
elegantly designed Instagram grids
we start to wonder if there's a certain 'online influencer' mold we need to fit.
We ask ourselves...
* Where do I belong?
* Will I ever be able to compete with what's already out there?
* When am I going to get my big break?
* Is that what I need to look like to attract clients?
* Is that what I need to sound like to sell my programs?
I've asked myself all of those questions and more.
For me personally, being an entrepreneur and watching what everyone else is doing led me down rabbit holes of feeling not enough, unworthy and quite frankly undeserving.
Over the past 7 years in the coaching industry and online space, I've tried to crack the code so many times, I've tried to dig for the secret formula treasure box and I've tried to sound like everybody else on the internet doing what I do. Hey, if it worked for them, shouldn't it work for me?
Not so fast grasshopper.
Now that I know what I know and have ridden the bull in the ring more than a few times, I want you to know that you CAN build the business of your ultimate dreams by authentically being yourself. **I double-dog-dare you to give being your bold, brilliant self a spin**
Here’s something most copywriters won’t tell you — you should be writing your own content. Yep, you, the Type B hustler with ❌ formal training.
Whether you are a wedding photographer 📸, own a yoga studio 🧘🏻♀️, or brew the best cup of ☕️ for miles, no one is more passionate about your business than you. That passion makes you the most qualified content creator you could ever hire.
But, just like anything else, getting started is the hardest part.
I’m working on putting together tips, courses, resources and more for movers and shakers like you. Everything you’ll need to pen copy that looks, sounds, and feels like you.
So I want to know 🧐, what’s your biggest pain point when it comes to your content?
Hey, it’s me! 👋🏻 I’m Lauren, the word slinger/cat lady/plant collector behind Solis Studio, and this seems like a good time to introduce myself.
I’ve been a copywriter and content strategist for five plus years, working with big brands on national campaigns in a bustling ad agency setting. And even though I love my day job (I’m one of the lucky ones), I want to do more.
That’s why I’m putting my years of marketing know-how to work where I think they can make the biggest impact.
I’m launching Solis Studio to help creative entrepreneurs and small business owners like you reach your goals. Whether it’s working one-on-one as your dedicated copywriter or sharing what I’ve learned so you can DIY your content with confidence, I want my slice of the internet to feel like a place you can turn to for real-world, no BS copy and content resources.
So, that’s a bit about me. Now, let’s get to know you! 😸 What drove your decision to start your business, side hustle or whatever the kids are calling it these days? Sound off in the comments! 👇🏻
I was tired of living a day dream life.
That “one day it will all be worth it” mentality. But GUESS WHAT. It’s already worth it. The fact that we get to wake up and live our day exactly how we want is already the DREAM.
So don’t take it for granted. Don’t go through the motions of day to day life. Genuinely LOVE what you’re doing. Make sure you value every. single. step. of your journey and I promise you’ll never have to wait for “that moment” to come, cuz you’ll already be freakin’ living in it.
And I’d like to think, that if somehow we can manage to do just that, we’ll be face-to-face with contentment instead of looking back with regret thinking “how in the heck did I get here?” 🤔
