WHY I’M GETTING PERSONAL ON LINKEDIN!

Every now and then you will see a post on LinkedIn that you know belongs on Facebook’s feed. Am I right? And you have also seen those posts from LinkedIn members asking why selfies are here on a “business” platform. It just doesn’t make sense when you are networking. This I agree with…

However, I will admit I have my Instagram account connected to my Facebook Page which then posts to LinkedIn. Why do I do that you ask? Well I know it doesn’t make much sense for many brands but it does for mine. The reason for that is because I AM MY BRAND. I want my LinkedIn connections to know about and visit my Facebook and Instagram and see a more personal side of me. It also builds more of a trust with my audience especially when I am pitching or coaching and growing my clientele. It shows I am real and also love to cook! lol

Not everyone will agree with this technique but it is what works for ME! When I coach clients and help build their brand some of them ask me if they should do what I am doing. And to be honest, most of the time I say NO! The reason behind that is because it just doesn’t make sense for their brand. You have to do what makes the most sense when building your business and not follow a trend etc. Everyone is different and this is what I do when I work with clients. I create and customize a very specific outline for them to follow which in the end will bring them more sales. And that is what we all want right? If you want to learn more about my Business Coaching feel free to contact me here…

Now…The reason why I am getting REALLY PERSONAL on LinkedIn lately is because I have an extremely rare autoimmune disease called Neuromyelitis Optica (NMO). And long story short I started posting LIVE videos on Facebook to bring awareness to it as soon as I found out. After a few videos, thousands of views and hundreds of messages I realized that what I needed to do was bigger. I needed to create some sort of platform for others to share their voice to be heard too! Not just NMO patients but anyone going through any illness or heartache. I also needed this space to be available for friends and family members to visit when looking for information or answers for their loved ones.

That place I created is called the JUST FOR US COMMUNITY. You can learn everything about JFUC at www.justforuscommunity.org.

Why am I writing about this on LinkedIn? Because this is not just going to be a space on Facebook. This is going to be something bigger. And I need your help!

The JUST FOR US COMMUNITY is something that I know is needed because I have lived through some serious health issues over the last year and with my experience of going through these circumstances, staying strong and fighting I know I am able to help so many other people. Plus the feedback and messages I have already received from complete strangers around the world proves to me this is needed.

I am bringing awareness to this community for not only patients and families but doctors, hospitals, researchers, non-profits, press, foundations and many more outlets. I am putting this community together because it is something that has to be available and also because my gut is telling me I can’t stop here. It’s telling me more is needed. I always go with my gut and follow my heart so here we are today.

So this is why I am getting personal. I am telling you my story today but tomorrow it will belong to someone else. I am sharing the good, the bad and the unsettling sometimes but guess what? That is what is needed to bring awareness to some of these diseases your everyday person may be fighting whether they choose to share or not. It is the real deal!

So back to why I need your help! I would truly appreciate if you would share this post for me. I am looking for those doctors, researchers, labs, technicians, nurses and average Joe’s to help me share this community in order to help others who are in need of the JUST FOR US COMMUNITY. I want everyone out there going through something to know that there is a safe place available for them to share their feelings, tears and of course get a dose of a little laughter. As that is always the best medicine.

That’s it! All I am asking for is a simple LIKE and SHARE!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading and sharing and helping spread awareness of the JUST FOR US COMMUNITY.

HOW TO STAY ORGANIZED IN 2017

Hello and Happy Monday!

A couple of my friends who run online businesses like myself have been asking me what I do to stay organized. How I prepped for 2017. So I thought that I would share my tips and how to stay organized throughout 2017 with you here. I also want to say that I am one of the most organized people you will ever meet and I still had work to be done so please know that this “stuff” takes time. Little by little you will be able to cross more off that list and eventually feel lighter and leaner in your work and personal space like I do now!

Below are a few tasks that I have completed in my personal life, my office area as well as online and on my devices. I have also decided to continue doing this quarterly throughout 2017 to keep me on my toes. So don’t stress about getting it all done at once. Just start! Light your favorite candle, put on your favorite music and get this organizing party started today!

Office

Shredded $15 worth of unneeded paperwork, notebooks and tax info from years past. Not sure why I didn’t do this years ago. I was shredding docs from 1998. Really?

Created a new Vision Board for 2017. I am a very visual person so if I have something to look at every day it helps me stay focused. I have post-its on a cork board and goals I want to reach. I even have my favorite fortunes from cookies. Yes I collect them! 

Got rid of battery packs, chargers and electronics that were no longer working. Really not sure why I had a freezer bag full of these. Set up an EBay store and sell them if they do work!

Organized folders, office supplies and paperwork. Labels, sharpies decorative boxes, glass jars or vases and paperclips are best for this. I just cleaned out a storage unit so this took the longest but felt so good when I finished.

Created a special space for all of my journals. These are my pride and joy. 

Put together a 12 month plan/calendar so I can see everyday what I need to be working towards and to stay ahead of the game. I have always focused on a month at a time. This year I wanted to map out my year and focus on quarterly goals. So far it’s working out for me.

Put away all my old planners and set up my new one for 2017. For some reason I still cannot part with a few of these but at least they are all in one place now. My new planner however is amazing and I am obsessed with it! The best part is that my best friend gave it to me as a Christmas gift. I am extremely picky with my planners and she bought the exact style I love and it has anchors all over it. Love that touch of style as I am originally from RI so the anchor holds a close place to my heart. I’m always posting it on my Instagram. That’s how much I LOVE it!

Set up a work schedule for myself so that I do not feel overwhelmed with my workload. I am one to stay on my computer for 12-14 hours at a time which is awful. I know I can’t do that anymore with my NMO so I have set up times to be on, then research then back on then prep meals, work out etc.

Personal

Donated two suitcases worth of clothes, shoes, and misc items to Goodwill. I know I have more this is just the beginning. I also have a collection of medicine bottles growing to donate to a country who recycles them. I just found out about this charity. I wish I knew about it in May. I would have 100 bottles by now.

Created a new Happiness Board for 2017. I like to have a cork board for work and a cork board for ME! This includes quotes, pictures, just anything that puts a smile on my face 🙂

Add a new thought for my Happiness Jar daily. I created this in December and have been putting a new thought in every day. When you are having a tough day just or at the end of the year you pull out your thoughts and read them. 

Journal every single morning. I’ve been doing this since July 2014. 

Trying to eat gluten free and dairy free and intake less meat products weekly. I can absolutely see the changes in my body when eating this way. I know it is best for my health so trying my best to stick with it.

Walk at much as I can throughout the week. I’ve gone the past two days in a row. I am so sore right now but on a mission to get back out there today. I tune up my music and power walk for about 3-4 miles. Trying to do 5X this week. Wish me luck…

Meditate daily. Even if for only ten minutes. I go through phases with this. Going to get back on track this week.

Online

Completed a re-brand of kellyanngorman.com.

Updated every single social media page I have. It’s very important to keep your brand and message consistent all across the board. I just finished my Pinterest boards this morning. 

Unsubscribed from hundreds of emails that I no longer needed.

Deleted emails and social media accounts that I no longer used.

Created thank you messages for all my new followers in the notes section on my phone. I have thousands to thank so this message makes it so much easier to do.

Computer

Put together an Excel Spreadsheet to track all of my social media, LinkedIn and newsletter subscribers. I tally them every Monday night and at the end of the month to see which outlet is working best for me. I started doing this in a notebook a few months ago but decided an Excel sheet would be best!

Backed up all files in two different places. 10 years of digital files takes forever. Times two!

Organized desktop. I went from 20 folders to 6. Looks so clean now!

Took off all notification pop ups.

Cleaned up task bar!

Phone

Deleted apps I haven’s used in a few months.

Deleted email accounts I no longer needed on phone.

Deleted notes I did not need.

Organized photos into new albums and deleted one the one I did not use.

Organized my iBooks App.

Tablet

Took off all social media and unused apps. I like to use my tablet to watch my webinars or videos while I work on my computer. I use my phone for social media and music. Three devices at once is normal right?

Well that’ it. I still have a few more to check off my list but I think I am off to a great start. I feel so much better working in my space now. Try it! And again leave me a comment below if you need some help or another tip. I would love to help you out…

Oh! I almost forgot to mention my online schedule for you! This is so important to post so your followers know where to find you…And most importantly it keeps me accountable knowing that I must post and follow the outline I have created…

Monday: KAG blog posts here. Spend time in Facebook Groups. IG Stories

Tuesday: Medium blog posts. Spend time in Facebook groups. IG Stories

Wednesday: Newsletters go out! (You can subscribe on home page) Spend time on Facebook. IG Stories

Thursday: LinkedIn posts. Spend time in LinkedIn groups. IG Stories

Fun. Fearless. Focused.

A couple of months ago I created a private Facebook group called Fun. Fearless. Focused.

Originally this group was only for my 15 Steps To Success and 11 Lessons through LinkedIn clients. However, a few weeks ago I decided to open it up to other Small Business Owners and Entrepreneurs like myself. Woman who just want to meet other woman whether they work, in the middle of a career change, book or move. This is the place for you.

This platform will allow everyone to network as well as keep each other inspired and motivated. A place to find that work/life balance. A place to laugh and learn with some new friends online.

And I would love for YOU to be a part of it!

Starting next Friday I will be going LIVE! Probably around 6pm PST. I have so many topics I want to discuss with you. So many tips and tricks of (a few trades) I want to share with you.

I plan on doing my LIVE videos every Friday (schedule permitting). My list of topics is quickly growing and cannot wait to share them. I am really looking forward to this and hope you will join us. Also, please feel free to share this post. The more the merrier in this group 🙂

See you on Friday the 13th!

TOP 10 TO-DO’S DURING CES 2017

CES has Las Vegas busier than ever! With over 150,000 here from around the world the energy is high and so is this wind today! If you have yet to arrive the runways are packed and the winds may have a delay in you landing so please plan ahead.

CES is a global consumer electronics and consumer technology tradeshow that takes place every January here in Las Vegas and I wanted to share some of my favorite things to do in town as well as give you a few tips if you are new to our city!

TOP 10 TO-DO’S DURING CES 2017

  1. Bellagio Fountain Show at night is a must! Be sure to have lots of battery on your devices because you are going to want to film it if you are a first timer!
  2. The Las Vegas Monorail is one of the best ways to get to and from the convention. Less stress waiting for cars and rides in valet! The traffic is crazy. Take the monorail and actually enjoy your coffee on the way to the convention. It is also a great place to network. Just saying…
  3. The Eiffel Tower Restaurant at the Paris Hotel and Casino has the best views of the strip, champagne and the Bellagio Fountain show may I add. You can also purchase a ticket to ride the elevator to the top of the Eiffel Tower for picture taking.
  4. Maverick Helicopters has an excellent strip view tour. Invite a few friends and go for a short flight in your own private helicopter.
  5. If you are staying anywhere near Mandalay Bay visit the Foundation Room upstairs for a cocktail, a dance and a view of the strip from the outside patio.
  6. Speaking of Mandalay Bay…If you are staying on the Delano side an early morning visit to 3940 Coffee and Tea is recommended. The have the best fresh juice and lots of outlets to charge up your phones and plush couches to sit and catch up on emails. Great decor for some Snaps and Insta pics too!
  7. Restaurants: Bardot Brasserie at Aria, SW Steakhouse at Wynn, Nobu at Caesars Palace, Tom Colicchio’s Heritage Steak at The Mirage, Giada at The Cromwell, Yellowtail at Bellagio and High Tea at Mandarin Oriental if you can make it in the afternoon!
  8. Sprinkles Cupcake or Ghirardelli at The Linq for your sweet tooth! Also, take a ride on the High Roller while you are there. Again, at night for best views of the strip.

9. Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens. Beautiful. Just go you will understand. There is nothing like it. You will also want to take pics of the incredible glass ceiling in the lobby designed by Dale Chihuly. Dale’s work can also be found at Aria.

10. After all the walking and hydrating this week you will need to take a break and recharge. If you have the time I would suggest Canyon Ranch SpaClub at The Venitian and The Palazzo. If you don’t have the time or budget for full spa day with treatments you can still enjoy the amenities all day for less than $100.

TIPS

Make reservations everywhere! There are a lot of companies that buy out venues and restaurants this week!

Bring your battery pack charged and with you everywhere!

Have cash on you to tip!

Contact me here if you have any questions or need any more info on booking.

Ladies. Bring flats or visit a Rollasole (roll up fold up shoes) vending machine. They are amazing and will definitely fit in your bag.

TIPS FOR CES 2018

Fly in a day ahead. Especially if you are flying private. The runways get so full and divert you to North Las Vegas and the traffic to the strip could be a nightmare.

Make reservations or venue buy out plans at least 6 months prior for any restaurant or nightclub event. Some companies will be booking this week for next year’s events. That is the demand!

Everyone will be waiting in lines for Uber, Lyft and cabs. Hire a driver! It is worth the money. No lines. No stress. And great service!

Again contact me if you have any questions or assistance in booking…

Wishing you a wonderful CES!
