The Start Of Business

The Internet is a pervasive and everyday part of the business landscape these days.

Whether you’ve been in business for 20 years or 20 minutes, the keys to success are the same:

Having a good idea: If you have something to sell that people have an appetite for, and if your competition is slim, your chances of success are hefty.

Working hard: When you’re your own boss, you can make yourself work harder than any of your former bosses ever could. But if you put in the effort and persist through the inevitable ups and downs, you’ll be a winner.

Believing in yourself: One of the most surprising and useful things we discovered is that if you believe that you’ll succeed, you probably will. Believe in yourself and proceed as though you’ll be successful. Together with your good ideas and hard work, your confidence will pay off.



If you’re the cautious type who wants to test the waters before you launch your new business we suggest starting  small. Head on over to Baddie Mall to get your vendor lists to gain access to vendors that can help with sourcing your products.  After you’re online, you can master techniques to improve your presence. She's Got Her OWN Network can help you with building a sustainable business.

Getting your first online course out there is an incredibly exciting and fun thing to do. This is at least what it felt to me, when I started working on my course over the last few weeks. Although I had studied online courses of other people in the past to improve my own skills, filming and getting my first online course out there was not as easy as

I expected it to be. My business partner - and videographer for the course - and I made quite a few mistakes. We also learned new things, which we will implement when filming the next online course very soon. As some people asked me to share my lessons learned,

So here we go:

1. Get clear on how you'll market the online course   Before shooting the whole online course material, make sure that you know what kind of additional material you will need to shoot for promoting the course. A teaser for your squeeze page? Another video for your landing page? Behind the scenes material (short video clips and pictures) for your social media channels? Creating this content can be easily forgotten but it is really important as well!  

2. Invest in great technical equipment  

Lesson learned #1: Get spare batteries for your camera(s). I know that they are quite an investment but nothing is as annoying as being ready and excited to film but the technical equipment simply says "nope". That will kill your energy and vibe.

Lesson learned #2: We worked with great classic photography lights. They were ok but the videos required more post-editing afterwards than initially expected; time we could have used smarter/better.

Recommendation? Invest in variable video lights!  

3. The art of working with a teleprompter

If you have never worked with a teleprompter before and if you would like to use one when filming your online course, start training with it as soon as you purchase. Figure out what speed and font size works for you.

PS: Use a new paragraph whenever you start a new thought. Highlight words in capital letters that you'd like to emphasize. That will enhance your reading flow. I created 19 separate script files in a free app called Prompter Duo.

How? I "copy and pasted" the text out of the original Word file that I had stored on Dropbox. Oh, and don't forget to charge your ipad before you start filming and at the end of the first filming day!  

4. Block two half days

No matter how great you are in front of the camera, filming 19 (or more) videos in a day requires A LOT of concentration and energy. Even if you possess outstanding acting skills, discipline and will power, the fact that you are tired will very likely - at a certain stage - show in your body language and facial expressions.

A better strategy? Plan in two half-days for filming the online course instead of one full day (it is easier and more fun). Also make sure that you take regular short breaks, drink enough water and don’t forget to eat during those two days.  

5. Don't start filming until the technical set-up is great  

Especially when you do this for the first time (after watching 10,000 Youtube tutorials), finding the right light, eliminating all shadows and being happy with the audio can be a pain in the back.

Argh! It makes sense though to experiment with the lights and audio until you get it right. Test the setup a few times before the actual filming day. That will save you heaps of time and eliminate frustration when you will be filming. If you cannot get it right, ask an expert.  

6. Check & structure your files.

Whenever you are content with a video that you have filmed, make sure you watch and double-check it on your laptop or desktop (-> on a big screen). If it is still ok, give the video a name and create a folder structure - ideally it follows the structure of your online course. Rename and place the videos of your second camera in the respective folders as well. This will make your editing process faster.  

7. Get an assistant   

If possible get an assistant for make-up, hair and clothes. Someone who will be around during those days, whose job is to focus on the presenter's make-up, hair and clothes, switch on the ac, order food etc. There were a few takes that we had to redo because I started to shine on my forehead, my shirt did not sit right and other small flaws.  


As everything in life, you learn best by doing and experimenting to figure out what works and what does not work. I genuinely like the end results of my first online course and look forward to filming more.

In situations like these you have to adapt like a virus, look for opportunity and don’t become paralysed and over analyse everything. Be smart and take action even if its not perfect.

TIP ONE: Save your money. Reduce your spending & build a safety fund. Reduce as much unnecessary spending as possible, be unbelievably stingy and put it all towards building a safety fund if you don’t already have one. This should be 3-5 months of your living expenses and only used in an emergency.

 TIP TWO: Invest in Index funds. Index Funds are one of the safest, long term investments strategies you can use to take advantage of the current crisis as we have an extremely undervalued stock market. Index funds contain lots of different companies and therefore track the stock market. If things start to improve and people start getting better, then it will kick start the chain of events and the market will bounce back dramatically. One of the most popular index funds is called the S&P 500, is comprised of the biggest 500 companies in the USA such as Apple, Amazon and Microsoft. The amazing thing is that buying and hiding this fund for a 20 year period has never lost anyone any money. I love using Vanguard index funds, you can just jump on their website and open an account and pick your risk tolerance. 

TIP THREE: Sell Shovels. No I’m not talking about actual shovels, let me explain…. Just think about the outbreak. People are having to self isolate causing the demand for virtual technology that allows people to work from home to skyrocket. Even schools are turning to online streaming services to teach their students. So as soon as you can start creating and selling products which allow businesses to continue making money despite the crisis, then you will be onto a winner! You may be thinking that sounds all good during a crisis but what happens when everything goes back to normal…

TIP FOUR: Invest in real estate This is a long term strategy, by buying a house during a recession when things are less expensive and interest rates are low, over a 10-15 years you will see the a dramatic return on your investment. The trick here is to buy low and if the market is down you can squeeze the price, you only have to wait for the seller to say yes to your offer, if they say no then you have lost nothing. Remember you are in control , you have the cash that they want, its easy to give it away and hard to earn so make it hard for them to get it from you !

TIP FIVE: Buy individual stocks. I have left the most risky option until last. I’m not usually too keen on buying individual stocks as there is a potential to lose a lot of money. However if you can predict what the market is going to do correctly, there are huge rewards. But how do you know what stocks to buy? When everyone isn’t flying you BUY AIRLINE STOCKS. When restaurants are empty you BUY RESTAURANT STOCKS. When movie theatres are empty you buy MOVIE THEATRE STOCKS. It’s pretty simple. These stocks will be undervalued heavily and will give you the greatest return. It’s very hard to time the bottom of the market so the best way to invest is to catch the bounce on the way up, ride that wave until you see the signs of others getting too confident and then sell.

Think and Grow Rich has been called the "Granddaddy of All Motivational Literature." It was the first book to boldly ask, "What makes a winner?" The man who asked and listened for the answer, Napoleon Hill, is now counted in the top ranks of the world's winners himself.

The most famous of all teachers of success spent "a fortune and the better part of a lifetime of effort" to produce the "Law of Success" philosophy that forms the basis of his books and that is so powerfully summarized in this one.

In the original Think and Grow Rich, published in 1937, Hill draws on stories of Andrew Carnegie, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and other millionaires of his generation to illustrate his principles. In the updated version, Arthur R. Pell, Ph.D., a nationally known author, lecturer, and consultant in human resources management and an expert in applying Hill's thought, deftly interweaves anecdotes of how contemporary millionaires and billionaires, such as Bill Gates, Mary Kay Ash, Dave Thomas, and Sir John Templeton, achieved their wealth. Outmoded or arcane terminology and examples are faithfully refreshed to preclude any stumbling blocks to a new generation of readers.

Stocks Over Degrees?!?

Some of the TOP industry's don't require a degree and most millionaires and BILLIONAIRES don't have them. 

So the old saying "Go to college and you'll be successful" is starting to sound like a ton of BS. Now don't get us wrong..EDUCATION ROCKS, and some industries require you to go to school like a brain surgeon, doctor, and scientist....but for the other stuff..well 🤷🏽‍♀️.....

Once you learn the art of investing into the stock market you'll see that it's not all that scary and can be very lucrative, especially for the slow and steady investors. 

Begin with asking a LOT of questions, and always do your own due diligence before investing a single penny into the market. Invest what's comfortable for you and don't let anyone persuade you into buying anything you aren't knowledgeable about.

People seem to get extremely annoyed, irritated, and upset when people talk about their luxury cars, private jets, and their country club memberships. 


Well, we don’t truly know why but we will just go out on a limb and say it’s because “They just could careless.

They don’t see themselves living that type of lifestyle, so why talk about it or focus on it?”

This is why we suggest avoiding those type of conversations with people who don’t THINK WEALTHY and TALK MONEY!

And be wary of those who can’t make money, who spend all their money, or who can’t pick up the bill when you're out.

You can’t learn anything from penny savers, naysayers, and income drainers. They will squeeze you dry.


It takes courage to make money; 80 percent of all millionaires today are first-generation millionaires. They didn’t inherit their money or start with money. You have to be courageous to connect with new customers, get more attention, and dominate your customers so that they can think of no one else BUT YOU and only you. (The Best Marketer Wins.)

Making money, keeping money, and then multiplying money requires a monster commitment, dedication, and an obsession with growth. Don’t be a mere spectator when it comes to making money. Be sure you are on the field trying to score.


There is so much money on this planet it is mind-boggling, yet most people have next to none.

Most people don’t have money because they believe there is a shortage of money, or they believe they don’t deserve it or that it’s hard to get.

I take the attitude that money is everywhere, money is infinite. Everyone has money, and if they are treated right and provided with what they asked for (and more than that), they will happily give me their money.


When you are in need of money, you need to be able to talk to people who understand your needs and who want to help you think of ways to get paid. You don’t need someone telling you that “It is what it is..” NO you need people who will encourage you to get up, get out, and HUSTLE!


Look around you..from friends, family, associates, and people you walk past on your way to work..THAT’S ALL MONEY!!!

Look for a customer to buy your products or services to get money for them. You want revenue? Instead of being obsessed with never having enough, focus on how much money there is and on getting in front of those people who need what you’re offering. Target in on the money.

Money is everywhere. Because of this mind-set, money comes easily, effortlessly, and abundantly. You can spend a lot of it and give it away and still have plenty. (You gotta Believe)

Invest Into BLACK BANKS....

Another way to #BankBlack is to buy stock in black-owned banks and companies. As with any investment in equities, there is risk associated with buying a stake of ownership in a company through the stock market. You should research any investment and consider your investment relative to your risk tolerance and long-term objectives. Your purchase of stock in a black-owned bank or company can help to improve their financial health and ability to grow. And in the long term, your investment can potentially grow, too. 

Note that many black-owned companies are micro cap or small cap companies that are thinly-traded and may be listed on the OTC (Pink Sheets) exchange and not on the NYSE or NASDAQ exchanges. As a result, they do not have the same reporting requirements and may carry a higher risk than larger companies traded on the major exchanges. Some OTC stocks may not be available for purchase with your broker.

Set Your Prices And Walk Away...

Being a boss isnt an easy job. You're constantly haggled about your pricing by people trying to get a discount.

What we have learned through our 20+ years of being in business is that you as the BOSS have to learn to SET YOUR PRICES AND WALK AWAY! Stand firm in your pricing and don't allow your customers to talk you down.

You have to understand that your pricing isn't up for negotiations and your customers need to understand that as well and respect it.

You might lose a potential customer or client but that's ok, they weren't for you anyway if your pricing wasn't suited for them. People have options and they have every right to choose another option, but they don't have the right to haggle you about your pricing. 

You're the set your prices and walk away. Those who VALUE your product or service will patronize your business and those who don't won't. 🤷🏽‍♀️ Simple as that. Don't beat yourself up over it...keep going boss.
