Where Are the Fireworks? How to cope with post-launch crickets

I will not sugar coat this for a single moment: building a business is HARD.

From the moment you start to take your golden egg of an idea seriously, you’ll be tested. You’ll work harder than you ever have. You’ll pour everything you have – mind, body, and soul – into birthing this new (ad)venture. You’ll spend a lot of money, you’ll eat a lot of takeout, you’ll even fall asleep on your laptop once or twice. You’ll hit major roadblocks and face delays and sometimes even have Godzilla stomp through your village. Read More

How to reduce the busy-ness in your business

Like most people, when I start my work day my first instinct is to check my email. I tell myself I’m checking for anything urgent that came in last night that may need immediate attention. However, this can very quickly lead me down a rabbit hole of replying to all my emails and soon I’ve lost control of my morning. Was that really the best use of time? What happened to my goals and my to-do list for the day? How did I get so busy? Read More

What a Brand Should Look for in an Influencer Marketing Partner

Whether or not a business should work with influencers and micro-influencers to promote their brand is a pretty hot topic these days. While there can be many benefits to influencer marketing like reaching a new audience, building backlinks and building a (positive) reputation – there can also be drawbacks. These hidden hindrances can include cost, time to execute and a potential negative effect on your brand reputation if you partner with a certain influencer, so it’s important you thoroughly research your potential partner and choose someone that truly fits with your brand’s identity.

Business Mentors: Your personal panel of promoters

I’m sure you’ve heard time and time again about the value of having a mentor. That’s because it’s actually is really, super important!

**Special COVID19 crisis e-course pricing assistance**

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and its global impact, we are currently completely focused on what we can do to best support each other - our community, our families, and our fellow wild women. As we all navigate this crisis, we want you to know that we’re in your corner, and we want to do our part to help you find some hope and to feel empowered as you find your way forward to a new normal. While social distancing and quarantines have many downsides, the most valuable resource we all have right now is extra time, and if we take advantage of that extra time by working hard on our dreams we all may just be able to turn some sour-ass lemons into some Beyonce-level Lemonade. And we are in a unique position to help you do just that with our Nest for Success ecourse, which helps you work through every step of laying the foundation for your dream business - culminating in the creation of your very own business plan (COVID be damned!). Our hope is that this course will help you utilize this time to truly evaluate what is possible for your future, to start thinking big, and begin laying the essential groundwork for building the company and life of your dreams when the dust of the pandemic settles.

As small business owners ourselves who have all been impacted by the crisis, we know that right now finances are scary and the future of your work may be shaky. We’ve been talking with a lot of you behind the scenes and know that many of you have lost your income, or had it drastically reduced, affecting your ability to support yourself and your family, or that your 9-5 job security is on thin ice. So we have made an immediate decision to make our course as accessible and affordable as we can to you during this time in order to lend a hand. 

So starting now through April 15th, we’re going as low as we can go and making our $997 course available for $99. (We’d give it for FREE if we could but need to make sure our team is cared for and keep the lights on over here too!). We’ve also set it up so you can split your payment into 3 monthly charges of $33, with the normal payment plan fees waived. 

And if you’re doing a little better than most during this time, we would encourage you to pay it forward and choose the option to sponsor a woman who is in financial crisis. If you are one of those women who’s in financial crisis, please be brave and send us a message via social media direct message, or email us at hello@wildernestwomen.com to let us know what’s going on and we’ll work on getting you taken care of. 

We love you, we’re here for you, and please remember to throw kindness around like confetti and lean on your sisters during this time.
