My Testimony Time #JMHstyle

So, about 2 weeks ago I saw this video of Paul Carrick Brunson where he talked about being at his END, his wits END. He had spent an entire year, an entire $1M on filming his new docuseries, and he was playing the waiting game, to see if the series would be picked up. in that waiting time, he began to grow sad, depressed, and worried that all that hard work might not come through. In his darkest hour, in his darkest days, during his personal health ‘cleanse’ he was literally lying on the floor of the bathroom with no HOPE. Until he saw the light, a shining, sunny, bright sunlight shining in his eyes, so bright he knew it was a sign. This video he shared spoke to me so strongly, I literally checked his pages often to see what ‘happened next’ in the coming days, weeks.
 
The REASON I was so drawn to this video, and his happenings was because, that was me, this past winter. I have to be honest. Like Marvin says, I was a child, lost with no hope. I had a job, I had clients, some, and I literally just had no more hope to continue the journey of this game of entrepreneurship in my graphic design business. I was in “hiding” as my mom says! I had no more energy for the risk, I had not patience to find the reward, I had no more willingness inside to make one more sale, and I clearly had no spark inside to create. During those times, heavily through the holidays, I seriously would lie on the floor of my office, look at books, magazines, and just stare blankly at my computer. I KNEW that I had work to do, I knew I had friends on the line, I even knew that I had hot sales leads in the funnel, I knew I had to work and make $ so that my family could have a good holiday, so that my kids would have what they needed, but I was done. So done. So over the fact that I had just made it 5 years in business, doubling sales every year; all that did not matter though.
 
At that time, as for the past decade, I had a loving, supportive and sometimes obnoxious husband, who loves me so much, yet I did not care to discuss any of my pain, my struggles and fears with him at the time. I did not choose to continue the hustle, the struggle, the sales calls and the banter back and forth with clients regarding my designs. Yet, I had no other option. I had no job opportunities (full time ones) knocking on my door, I could not work any more overtime in my p/t and could not make another sale for the life of me without completing the work that was on my plate, and on my long ass to-do list! I just quit, momentarily.
 
Until one day, and I am not sure he remembers; but one day, my goooood ol’ entrepreneurial friend Quinn Riley (Q) messages me on facebook. Of course, while on the floor, quitting my business I still went on facebook, I just did not post. He messages me and says —- “Hey Jules, yo, homegirl, where are ya at? Your market needs ya. It’s time to come out of hibernation.” —- yep. And that was all I needed to hear. I think it was around January; where I had praised God I made it through the depressing holidays, he jolted me that day. I thought to myself, Q knows — he totally knows that I had just quit my business! Thinking “how the hell did he know” anyways? But yep, it was just the tug at my heart, the beatdown I needed in the IM that day to pull me up, and out, take a breath, have a coffee, and get back to work. The week to follow, I was on a creative high, just like business as usual. Thank you Q!
 
So, saying allllllllllll that to say, I thank Paul for sharing his transparent story of lying on his floor, waiting for a sign, hoping for a breakthrough. He is an amazingly honest, real as they can get, successful and enjoyable entrepreneur to look up to, and see how it’s done! I am so grateful for his stories and posts; they are real as they can get, and they have inspired me to take a step forward in the video world, sharing my experiences and truths. I am very excited for the new show to air, and I KNOW it will become a full time docu-series, as they hope! Blessings <3 JMH
 
Summary:
Don’t quit. If you do quit you betta come back my friend, and love yourself enough to think twice before you quit again! The battle is not yours! Use your gifts, and talents to the fullest, and love yourself FIRST! #message

6 Surefire Ways to Use Social Media to Grow Your Business

6 Surefire Ways to Use Social Media to Grow Your Business

Social media is a powerful marketing tool for entrepreneurs, bloggers, business owners, and self-published authors. Popular sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Instagram have changed the way we market to our customers, by allowing businesses to reach them directly.

When it comes to growing your business using social media, there are some best practices. Here we share a few ways to use social media to grow your business in the African American community.

1. Be consistent

This is our number one tip for a reason! Your blog posts should be well-thought-out and scheduled to keep an active blog, well—active. Your social media should also be scheduled to ensure you are posting often. Sticking to your plan and being consistent will go a long way to making your brand look professional.

2. Tailor content to a specific social platform

Managing several social platforms for one brand, it’s important that you give each site its own personality. Although you can share the same blog on various platforms, you should format your posts to the site you’re posting on.

For example, you shouldn’t use hashtags on LinkedIn, but you should on Twitter and Instagram.

3. Push the most on the networks that you get the most engagement on

If you see one social network is getting more attention than your other social networks, then put the most time into growing that network. Some networks are going to work better than others for your brand, and it’s important you go where your audience is.

4. Write good content

The best way to get traffic to your website is to write engaging content that your audience can relate to. It’s better to have one potential customer than one hundred followers who aren’t interested in what you have to offer.

5. Balance your posting between business and fun

It’s important to mix both business and fun social posts into your marketing plan. Although the fun posts may attract more people and get more likes, the business posts will attract potential customers. Having a balance of each will keep your brand fun and informative.

6. Celebrate events and culture

A good way to engage African Americans is by posting about African American events and culture. You could host a giveaway or a contest pertaining to the event to push engagement. A few upcoming events you should keep in mind:

  • African American History Month: February 2017
  • African American Day Parade: September 17, 2017
  • Kwanzaa: December 26, 2017
