Now I started #TrademarkThatThursdays so you could get free access to reliable trademark facts and I have even created guides and other tools to help you start making your business Trademark Decisions with a more informed approach.

As a Thank You for your tuning into my content…
I’ve been working on some exclusive content to help you begin your first step in business marketing, trying to create reels for the first time and when I was asked by a colleague and a family member to help with TikTok and Reels, I knew that this was a favorite thing to teach. I have a posting obsession and I’m committed to understanding algorithms. In just 6 months, I went from 100 followers on TikTok to 9,000+ followers and now I am growing my IG Reels because they are finally monetizing more of their features for creators. Creator culture is happening whether we like it or not!
Grab my 10-STEP BREAK DOWN FOR THE REELS BEGINNER Guide for my community of creators and social media feedback. Short-form video content can be used to market your business, build your personal brand, and even launch brand partnerships. This is where I will teach you how to Create Captivating Reels for the ﬁrst-time Reelers, Launch Your TikTok Channel with a Purpose, and Repurpose Content on Both Platforms on YouTube Shorts, Facebook Reels, LinkedIn Screen Grabs, and even in Email Campaigns.
