I AM UNSTOPPABLE!

Happy New Year! 2018 is finally here and I could not be more excited about it!

Today I have a pretty big announcement to make on Facebook so I’ve been preparing a lot of to-do lists and content checklists all afternoon. You know me. Miss Organized! Need to make sure everything is in place!

I am definitely going to take it easy later today though as the last few days I went hard! I was on a mission to finish 2017 strong. If you were able to listen to my last two shows on The Happy Workaholic Podcast you are in the know. If not, I shared a lot on my Instagram Stories as well so feel free to check that out if you follow me…

If you want a behind the scenes look at my day and want to learn some business tips first I always share them on Instagram Stories so let’s connect if we aren’t already. You can follow me @kkinvegas right here!

Here is some great news! I have finally upgraded my website. It took me hours to redesign but so so worth it! It’s my pride and joy and the one place to come to learn everything about me!

And guess what? Every Monday you will be able to read a new blog post from me right here on my website. That’s something new I am starting today! So welcome to my first post of 2018! I’m glad you are here…

Take a look around and let me know what you think of my site!

I’ll also be blogging on Medium and LinkedIn every week just like I was in 2017. That is definitely not going to change.

What IS going to change and has already is my outlook on life. So many negative things had happened to me in 2017 and I am so glad to be able to have left them behind.

I have added a few more projects into the mix this year because they are something that I have been wanting to do but was not able because of health reasons and chemo treatments.

One of them will be on Facebook and really really excited about that! As I mentioned earlier, I’ll be on my page later today to make the “official” announcement.

One of the most important changes I am making is my Business Coaching Programs. I am going to focus more on my favorite words in business. Service. Sales. Social Media. These little words are the key to your success. No matter what line of business you are in! I know because it’s what I live and breathe.

Providing the best service possible. Knowing how and when to sell or pitch. How to incorporate social media to build your business. The techniques I have put together will definitely take your brand to another level.

I share everything I do in my line of work and put together a very specific program for each client for them to reach the level of success that they want!

I will definitely be sharing more business tips and lessons on my podcast too! If you are not subscribed you can do so on the home page of my website right here!

There are 40 shows up now and I will have my first episode of 2018 up on Friday!

Something else I do that not too many know about is design websites. I’ve been using WordPress for ten years now and have designed so many sites and blogs for myself and now clients. I honestly love it!

I by no means know how to code! I just know how to listen to people when they talk about their business. I hear what they need. I sketch an outline of what their site should look like to represent them the best and then get to work! I love it! And my clients have loved the work so far so I am excited to be adding that to my portfolio this year!

Lots of LinkedIn content as well! That is also on the list for 2018. If we are not connected on LinkedIn yet… What are you waiting for? That is my favorite playground online. Especially when it comes to building your business.

Connect with me on LinkedIn here!

Lastly, another project I had to put on hold the last six months was my Luxury Brand Consulting. Well my friends I am back in the saddle! If you have a luxury brand and looking for more ways to get it into some new hands and in front of new eyes I am your girl! This is one of my absolute favorite things to do! It gives me that rush! I love love love it!

Seeing the joy on someone’s face and their eyes light up when they talk about their business makes me want to work 150% for them to get it to where they truly want it to be! To get it to that “next level”!

I love people. I have always been a people person. I’m the girl that will just start talking to a random person in line at a store and end up following them online and doing business with them or just staying friends with them forever. Do you have one of those crazy friends? That’s me! It’s just my personality. It always has been and I use that to the best of my ability when it comes to business and helping others grow!

Sooo…

As you have probably been reading online (lately) everyone is talking about “their word” for 2018.

I honestly struggled with this for a while. I’m not really sure why because I am usually pretty good when it comes to things like this. I knew my word to close out 2017 was TRIUMPHANT! However, it took me weeks to come up with one that would fit me perfectly that would describe my year ahead.

Finally it just came to me a few hours ago as I was sitting on my bed making my to-do lists.

My word for 2018 is UNSTOPPABLE!!!

As you can see from above I am a woman on a f’ng mission! And why the hell not? I love what I do. I love to create. I love to help others succeed. I love life. So I am making the best out of everything I have to be able to do what I love and that is work…

Hence, the name of my show and Business Coaching Program. The Happy Workaholic!

What is your word for 2018? Let me know in the comments. So excited for our new year ahead.

And of course thank you so much for taking the time to read my post today! If you are new here and would like to sign up for my weekly VIP Newsletter you can do so on the bottom of my home page right here! I send them out every Wednesday…

EPISODE 34: DON’T ASK A QUESTION IF YOU DON’T WANT TO HEAR THE ANSWER!

I also discuss a decision I decided to make on Instagram as well as with my VIP Newsletter readers this week.

You get what you pay for right? Well same thing here. If you ask your audience a question you better be ready for the answers. Otherwise just don’t ask. Business is not personal!

I asked because I always want to grow my brand and make it stronger. I want to know what my followers want! Asking (literally) is the only way to get answers from your audience while continuously and consistently growing your business. Try it. I promise it will make you think twice on things…

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.
