What do you do?

I am a digital marketing manager, social media manager, virtual assistant, and work in Kajabi and WordPress. I create graphics, content, manage social media channels, provide strategy, and create websites, courses, and products for clients!

What does an average day look like for you?

I wake up at 6am to get my son ready for daycare and then bring him in. Once I get home, I'll have some breakfast and relax for an hour. Then, I'll start my workday! I like to block time for each client so I'm on track throughout the day. Around noon I will take a break and clean my house, then have something for lunch and watch a show. Then, if I'm busy, I'll continue to work! Around 4pm I'll stop and get ready to pick up my son. When I get home, I start dinner and let him play for a little bit. Then, it's bath time and ready for bed! Once he's asleep, if I need to, I will continue working or get ready for tomorrow. I'm usually back in bed around 11pm. Then, I start the day over again!

How did you get here?

After I graduated college, I realized I wanted something different than my chosen major. When Covid happened, I decided to try and get some part-time work on Upwork. After about 2 months, I got my first client. I wanted to work with more clients and decided to have multiple clients at once. I slowly started gaining some more clients and learning more about social media. Now, I currently have 11 clients and I love what I do!

What mistakes did you make along the way that others should avoid? 

I feel like my main mistake was not having confidence in myself and my work. It made me look unprofessional. However, this is something I had to do in order to learn!

If you could go back, what advice would you give yourself when you first started out?

Be confident, learn as much as you can on your own, and don't be afraid to try new projects!

What are your favorite platforms/tools?

ClickUp is great for organizing your clients, tasks, and deadlines. I also love working in Kajabi, which is why I chose to specialize in it, because it's a popular platform and very user-friendly! There are so many platforms and tools, and learning as many as you can is always a great idea.
