QUOTES BY TAYLOR
"(Instagram) allows a bit more organic feel even to sponsored content because you are still having to share something about your life through that photo." Taylor Bradford

"Having an intention with what you’re posting is something that will help you grow your Instagram account." Taylor Bradford

"Figure out what your game is on Instagram, what your aesthetic is." Taylor Bradford

"Try to figure out what your game is, what is your feed, what are you wanting to share, and does it align with your brand." Taylor Bradford

"Who are you posting for, who is your customer, who are you trying to engage with on Instagram." Taylor Bradford

QUOTES BY LAUREN
"That’s what makes Instagram so powerful because it’s so visual, it’s really one of the only forms of social media that doesn’t have like a stupid algorithm like Facebook or Pinterest." Lauren McBride

"I'm all about the aesthetics of my Instagram feed...I have a method on how I edit my IG photos." Lauren McBride

"I am constantly being intentional about how I want my photos to look. If I don't like how it looks (overall feed), I'll quickly delete it." Lauren McBride

"In my brain, engagement, commenting more, liking more, in general is also really helpful, posting a few times a day, making sure your feed has that style like Taylor was saying, aesthetically pleasing..." Lauren McBride

"You want someone to go to your Instagram profile, scroll down, and you want everything to flow as a whole, but also...you want that photo to be appealing on its own." Lauren McBride

* Proper Disclosure
* The 80/20 Rule
* Being True to your Brand, Content, and Readers
* What's Happened to Twitter??
* I totally lose count on how many tweets I was counting. That's funny, y'all! It's about 24 tweets in.

QUOTES BY TAYLOR
"If your posts always have free items in it, you might be on the verge of selling out." Taylor Bradford

"Don’t host a giveaway every single day on your blog, unless you’re specifically a giveaway blogger." Taylor Bradford

"You want to always be honest about what you are talking about but you don’t also want to engage in brand bashing on your blog." Taylor Bradford

"Genuinely want to be there to support your fellow bloggers, support your tribe members and don’t always just ask ask ask and take take take, always be willing to give back, it’s all about community." Taylor Bradford

"Keep your credibility with your readers, don’t push them to question your content." Taylor Bradford

"Money isn't worth losing your street credit as a blogger." Taylor Bradford

"If you get approached for something that is not a ‘hell yes’ than say no." Taylor Bradford

QUOTES BY JENNIFER
"Setting your line in the sand about products you are willing to do, what you’re not willing to do, and really establishing that before the offers even start coming because otherwise they will be tempting if you don’t already have your standards set." Jennifer Salter

"You have to treat everyone with dignity and respect whether or not you had a good experience with that product or not, and I think sometimes you can earn a better reputation by holding your tongue than by just spewing how much you disapproved or disliked something." Jennifer Salter

"You don’t want to be committed to a project that your kind of slightly hate and miss out on opportunities that you could have said yes to that were a 'hell yes'." Jennifer Salter

TAYLOR SAID
"...try to find a tribe of people of no more than ten when you are first starting out. And some people now are calling them masterminds which I think is a cool girl boss term because a tribe doesn’t necessarily have to be everybody in your exact niche." Taylor Bradford

"What it feel like to be part of a tribe, just the camaraderie of having people that kind of know what you’re doing and kind of understand it." Taylor Bradford

"I can’t stress enough how important finding a blog tribe is." Taylor Bradford

"Seasons change. Friendships change. Tribes change." Taylor Bradford

"The biggest, number one thing you need to look for in a tribe is people you can trust." Taylor Bradford

"You want to be able to freely share about the things that are going on in your head, like your ideas, in a space where you will not feel like someone might scrape that idea, or steal that idea." Taylor Bradford

"Cultivating your tribe is more than just blogging and commenting on their blogs." Taylor Bradford

"Always give back, always offer support, and always provide value." Taylor Bradford

JENNIFER SAID
"Finding people who were of the same mind and interested in the same things, which was blogging, was so key for me not going crazy." Jennifer Salter

"Your tribe will change, guaranteed, it will change overtime, but that’s a good thing because you’re growing, which means your tribe needs to grow." Jennifer Salter

"You want to look for people too that are learning things, you don’t want to talk about the same old things." Jennifer Salter

"Try to find a least two or three people who are experts in something that you suck at." Jennifer Salter

"Your tribe is not about getting ahead, your tribe is about supporting each other and sharing knowledge." Jennifer Salter

"Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there because, if you’re doing it through your computer, there is a little bit of a buffer so you don’t have to be afraid of rejection because you know it might happen but, just feel comfortable." Jennifer Salter

TAYLOR SAID
"I do have to look at all of the opportunities that are coming my way and if I can’t legitimately say that this is a ‘hell yes’ kind of opportunity, I have to say no." Taylor Bradford

"You have to have information and inspiration in order to get to the new creation, without the information, it’s hard to create." Taylor Bradford

"Intentional homework, give yourself homework and read." Taylor Bradford

"To just note when you are trying to get your creative juices flowing is that you should expect challenges, not everything is going to come naturally to you. Taylor Bradford

"Fill your mind with lots of compelling content, whether or not it is something for whatever it is you’re creating." Taylor Bradford

"Find like-minded creatives." Taylor Bradford

"Keep creating, even if it’s crap, just keep doing it because eventually you will break through, and when you break through, embrace it." Taylor Bradford

"The creative process, it takes time, it takes energy, and it takes intentional effort, it’s not going to come easy." Taylor Bradford

ADRIAN SAID
"...how am I going to balance anything at all? How am I going to balance this juggling act?" Adrian R. Hale

"I had to learn to say no a lot more, when you know you have a deadline you have given yourself for a book or you know you have an early morning wedding, you kind of need to say no to some of those social aspects of life." Adrian R. Hale

"You have to look at things and be like is this something that's going to get me further along in my career? Is this going to help me in someway or what?" Adrian R. Hale

"My dreams have just really grown and changed over the years and to be able to do both (hair/makeup and author) at the same time has been pretty phenomenal this year." Adrian R. Hale

"Publishing is a huge business that I had no idea about. I finished a book and was I was like 'Hey! I finished a book, what do I do now?' and people were like 'oh calm down, young one, like here's a whole list of things for you to learn about now'." Adrian R. Hale

"You have to fake it till you make it, don’t let them see you sweat, and then finding the people that you trust to get you through it." Adrian R. Hale

"I'm either writing fast and furious or not at all." Adrian R. Hale

"I try and find something that interests me. Because I'm not going to be able to write about French Cooking because I'm not really interested in French Cooking. But if you talk to me about MMA or if you talk to me about the hair and makeup business or like anything car related. I have a very defined interest in all of those. That is something that I can write about for several months straight." Adrian R. Hale

"A lot of authors…we do sprints where we’ll come up with a topic that could be related to what your writing or absolutely not…and then you would just write about that for however many minutes, as much as you can, anything that is like brain dumping just to get your brain going on a certain topic." Adrian R. Hale

"Anything to help develop yourself as a writer, finding out information about what processes for other people…anything that is going to get your creative juices flowing." Adrian R. Hale

"You can take something away from everything." Adrian R. Hale
