"She's in the 300s now, as far as followers. And she said it was so much easier for her to do that. And you can reference that podcast, I'll put it in the show notes, but it's how she grew her following to a hundred in less than 15 days. And that was that aired over the summer, so I'll link that. But here's what she says. Step by step unique podcast strategies that can be easily implemented. Catapulting women in biz to reach their goals. And then she says, don't wing it podcast host, and then she has a link. So she is giving podcast strategies that you can use to reach your business goals. She does that very well. So then the next person I want to reference who's she's been with me as a client the longest probably two and a half years maybe three, she started out as a client, and then she joined my memberships, and she's still there with me. Her name is Jamie. Her husband is Chris, and they run expedition marriage. And their account is just taken off like wildfire. Once she realized how easy Instagram was to implement as far as what to do with it, then she just took off. So there bio says Kristin Jamie marriage experts learn to make your marriage God centered connected and fun. Podcasters, authors, newlywed couples devotional, which they just recently released in the last year. In 2020. And they have the 30 day praying for your husband challenge. So each of these people spell out exactly who they're for, okay? So you know who they're for and you know who they're not for. So that is the thing that you need to decide in your bio. You really have to niche down and decide who you are for because once you do that, you got to not be for everybody because that actually hampers your growth. So in your bio, do you tell who you're helping? Do you tell that you're helping? Do you tell why you're helping? And how you're helping. So that is the thing that you have to keep in mind in your bio. Today's little assignment is to go back and look at your bio and see if it's clear to you. Are you showing who you're helping? Does it say who you're helping? Does it say how you're helping? Do you have a Lincoln bio that points to your resources that help? So basically, tell who you're helping what you're helping them do and then have a targeted link to reference with that in your bio. Next week, we're going to talk about your content. So we're going to drill down a little bit. But before we go, I want you to know something. The doors are opening very soon for a new Instagram program I've developed. And it is coupled with my email course. Now my email course is the authentic email marketing school and it is for those of you who are not.

"You can put your spin on your message and market in a way that feels authentic to you. Because nobody wants to sound like an infomercial. And now, here's your host, ruthie gray. One of the first things they tell you in blogging school is to develop an email list from day one, start an email list. In any kind of online presence that you want to develop, whether it be a podcast or perhaps you're writing a book and you want to promote that or you are developing a business fleshing it out, you need a newsletter. And they always say experts always say, that's who they are. Start yesterday. Now, I didn't quite believe this because I didn't really know that anyone would actually want to read my newsletter, but the day I started, I wished I had started yesterday. So on Instagram, many of my clients and members when we start looking at their bio and I look at their Lincoln bio like we talked about a few episodes ago 7 Lincoln bio solutions for email list building. We talked about how important it is to have one of those links pointing to your newsletter. So what I was saying was when I go to assess their bio, a lot of them do not even have a newsletter or an opt in for that newsletter. So last week we talked with Sarah garinger about how to create targeted opt ins that get readers on your newsletter..

"Would you say that you get a week? So I have the blessing of writing devotions for proverbs 31 ministries about 6 times a year. So on the day that my devotion publishes, I get ten times more traffic than I normally do. So I'll get a large number of subscribers. So that kind of throws off my average. But I will tell you that I get I get about ten unsubscribes a week. And nobody likes those, right? But I heard someone at a writer's conference. I was at one time, say that the proof that you're a professional writer is that you get rejected . Because you don't get rejected if you're not putting your stuff out there. So I look at those unsubscribes as a form of rejection that just comes with the territory of being a creative person. And it's not personal. I'm a highly sensitive person. So this is hard. This has been an area where God is really grown me. And realize that some people just need my words for a season. They don't need it forever. And I've had to do that with other lists I've been on. I needed it for a season. So to let that go, what I what I have done is just to say out loud when I'm archiving them in MailChimp I say, thank you and goodbye. And I have to do that so I don't hold a grudge and I don't start developing resentment in my heart. Somehow adding that audio layer helps me release it more. And again, holding it loosely and remembering these are God's people. They're real people with real faces. I don't want to mistreat them. I need to just let them go with peace and it's become easier with practice. I get that when I first started my newsletter 6 or 7 years ago, you know, I had a very small list and when someone would unsubscribe after I had poured my heart out in a newsletter, I'd be like, who is this person? Why did they unsubscribe? And it would be, I am highly sensitive, too. And I remember talking with our friend Melanie red. And she was like, just move on. It's okay. That's going to happen. And you just have to let it go. And then I do realize now that I've been doing it for all these years that there are, there's a time and a place and sometimes people just need to disconnect for whatever reason or they need to clean out their inbox, or they just don't need they're not in that vein, like maybe they're not trying to work their Instagram or online marketing anymore. And so we have to respect them and expect the same thing when we unsubscribe as well. It just, you just have to let it go. So I like that you mentioned that. How many places on your blog, do you have options? Okay, so every single page of my blog has a sign up form at the bottom. I also have a dedicated newsletter page where people can go and learn a little bit more than they can at the bottom of that page of every page. And then I have a pop up through the sumo me plugin. And so that pops up after a set amount of time that I select and then you can select if that person visits again in a week or two weeks, you can say it's not going to pop up to nag them to death. You can control all those settings on there. And it's a free plugin. You can use the paid version, but I just use the free one. And that converts a lot of people. So the pop ups are really effective. I think we just expect them on an established website. This kind of like watching commercials on television on live television, you just know they're going to be part of it. And maybe they're not your favorite part, but you just expect that that's part of the program. And I think that's what people expect. I expect it when I go on certain sites and I can always click off if I don't want to. But I still sign up myself sometimes. I'm sure I signed up for two or three this week. So as long as you're offering something great, people will sign up. And you mentioned to me that you have a pretty good conversion rate on that pop up that ten second pop up and it says T on Tuesdays. And I just want to read what it says, receive my weekly exclusive email devotional by signing up pure green to my privacy policy, which that's a whole other conversation. We do need to be respectful of different things like that. GDPR and all of that, which we're not going to discuss today, but I like that you said weekly exclusive email devotional. Yeah, you have to be very clear. You only have about three seconds to capture their attention, so make sure you're being very clear so that they know what they're getting in exchange for their email. Quick and clear, I like that. So you offer them in several places and I think that one of my biggest takeaways that you just said is you have an actual page dedicated to your newsletter that you can point people to I like that. So how do you promote your opt in on Instagram? I feel like video is the best way to do that. So what I've done a couple times is it's not that great of a quality video, but I just take my phone and I record me looking at my own computer screen, just scrolling through. People know it's a computer screen so they're not real picky about that. But sometimes I'll go in the library and I'll just scroll through so they can get a sneak preview of what is in there and entice them to sign up that way. If you do this through video, it doesn't have to be fancy, like I just told you, then Instagram is going to share that more organically than anything else you do. And that's true of Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, anything else, video is what's trending. And the good thing about this is you don't have to show your face on that video. It's just your computer screen. And I'm going to be looking at doing more reels on this in the weeks ahead because I know that's trending. And I'm looking to you for help on that ruthie. Well, and I have done this before. I've done my newsletter on a green screen and me talking my face talking in front of it so that people could see it scrolling by like my headlines and things like that. That's worked great. And I talk about it just about every week every other week in my stories and I do the same thing as you. I show what's offered there. Right now it's my Instagram caption blueprint. And so you are, you are dead on with the video. I think that that works really well super effectively. That's a great takeaway. So I have a question about your podcast. Is it hosted on your blog? It is, yes. Okay. And so I'm sure that you offer a newsletter opt in surrounding that as well, I guess. Yeah, what I do, I'm just going to talk about my heart in a drawer one right now because I have two different ones. I'll just focus the conversation on that one. So I have a free printable worksheet for every episode of season one. It's kind of a heavy topic and it's sad and it's hard. So I want people to be able to work through that on their own time. But I'm getting ready to start reporting season two. And I think that I'm going to keep those season one free printables available, but move season two and beyond to a Patreon account. And again, we've kind of covered this several times. You have to offer really high value.

"This show models quality over clamor so you can put your spin on your message and market in a way that feels authentic to you. Because nobody wants to sound like an infomercial. And now, here's your host, ruthie gray. When you're setting up your Instagram profile, you notice a place for a link. And we call that a Lincoln bio. You can use this link for your products, your blog, your podcast, and other reasons. So we're going to talk today about those different reasons, but we're going to hone it down later into email list reasons. But you'll see where we're going with this. Anyway, I want you to welcome my son and audio engineer null and gray. Welcome Nolan. Hello. And my daughter, Hayley, Carpenter, who is my lovely assistant and works for me. Hi, Hayley. Hey. Well, we're talking about Lincoln bio, like I said. And this is going to be a interesting learning conversation. I think for all of us. So we have 7 options here for you for the Lincoln bio. So if you only need to drive traffic to one specific place, you may not be interested in the following options, however, keep an open mind because I think you're going to see reasons why you might need more than one link. So let's get this conversation started. We have 7 options for you. And the first option is what, Haley? The first option is linking directly to your website. Yes. Which is what I do. Which is what you do with your business, which is indigo sound. And I basically just have just the name of my website and my bio as simple as that. But I've actually thought about switching to a Lincoln bio, which is more of what we'll talk about in this episode..

"Now here's all the features. Here's all the amazing stuff you're going to get in it which is usually truly a wonderful product in a wonderful offer but they haven't taken enough time in the copy to really kind of be able to have the person reading it. Say oh my word she gets me like. How does she know. I'm thinking that right. Now how does she know that. I felt that way when i tried that other thing and it didn't work you know and that's what you want people to do when they're reading your sales copy. Is you want them to say. Ruthie understands my problem. She understands where i'm at and now she has something that will help me. Yeah so. I think it's really just taking that time. Like and all that stuff that we've already talked about all that research all those relationships all those real conversations you can pull the copy and the wording rate from those conversations. You've had with people if you've been doing it consistently and if you haven't relate to start you can start right now you can host. You can open up like every once in a while in my face grew. Do a zoom chat. I'll just say. Hey i'm gonna do a free zoom chat. Pon we're going to do like little networking group and get on for half an hour just chat with people and that is an opportunity to just hear from real people where they're at and what they're doing and and that gives you a perfect opportunities to start pulling ideas and copy from yes. Yes and open up. Google doc and list all their pain points and add to it because that is the verbiage you wanna say their words back to them in that sells copy. Yeah so good. So good esther. In so it's so important to network. It is so important like you mentioned getting on his zoom.

"And then you also want to make sure that your content during your launch Before you launch inspires people. You want to inspire people to consider. What's the future of their life with when they have done this so if i grow my instagram. What's that gonna do for me. How is that going to change my business. How's it going to change my life. So inspiring them getting them dreaming. And then lastly ashore you also want to make sure that you wish shore your potential buyers as to why. This is a good idea in a lot of times that involves testimonials from past clients a guarantee. Sometimes we offer some sort of guarantee on a course where we can say look. This is not a risky decision to invest with me. Because you know these ten people have had real results. When they've worked with me or you know i have this guarantee that if you do the work and you don't see results are giving your money back. Whatever that might be. So those are the five immuno. That's a real brief synopsis. We could go really deep on all of that but a five five kind of themes you should cover during your your launch period. When you're trying to sell something and it all goes back to if you've done your research at the very beginning with those first four points that you talked about just having those conversations and listening instead of having our own agenda and this is this is the problem. I see a lot on instagram is. It's just a lot of by my thing instead of backing up and asking your audience questions even inviting him in the comments. So if we'd listened and we have the verbiage and we finally can figure out what our superpower is an how we can help these people with our product. Xactly exactly yes and so many times this is this is one of the big things i see happen is so many times we come in to our business with an idea of what we wanna sell..

"Host ruthie gray so number one why you should be using reels. The momentum is just beginning. Reels are only going to grow from here. The head of instagram. A couple of weeks ago as you know stated the app will be focusing on creators videos shopping and messaging for marketers. This is great. News in twenty. twenty tech. Talk was the most downloaded new app. As of twenty twenty one with new reels features being implemented instagram is growing by the day. A survey conducted by marketing brew. Found that eighty seven percent of tick-tock users agree. That reels are just as interesting as take talk videos. How about that is means. Now that reels are becoming more central to the instagram algorithm. We will see users shift from tick talk to reels as well as c. new instagram users joining it's blowing a number two real skiffs your small business a platform. This is great news. Reels has their own algorithm. Just the reels part of instagram has their own algorithm. So you now have two channels of traffic. You can direct to your product or business. Niching down is easy with reels. As you have the option to like videos for a more curated feed for yourself as well as everyone else can do the same and use hashtags so that your target audience can find you more easily. You can connect with your ideal customer through reels. it's very targeted. Here's a quick tip. Don't use watermarks or low quality recycled videos. Instagram is not going to be pushing out those videos with the tick-tock watermarks or if they are low visibility they're not really good quality so instagram loves instagram. Again i've been telling you that for years so use instagram. And they are app for your reels so the third reason the final reason why you should be using reels is because you can do it. You can do it right now. In the social media world video is king with a variety of users on instagram spanning. Two ages sixty five and even older reels has proven to be more user friendly to learn than other social video platforms available now. That may not seem right but once you play around with the app you realize it's pretty simple. It's not as hard and you can take it in levels to this means. If you're not tech savvy you can still thrive on reels. There are little stages that you can take little steps you can take to use israel's correctly learning what to post and integrating reels into your posting schedule is actually more simple than you might think people are just out there to snatch up the small tidbits and to be entertained but also to be educated and inspired so if you can do entertaining or educational or encouraging content. You don't have to be a comedian. You don't have to dance in fact it's not really i don't. I don't know that that it really helps anybody to watch you dance. Even though we run our instagram accounts and we started them with a vision in mind. We have to figure out how to serve our followers with them. Our account is about our. It's about our message. But it's about them and it's about how it serves them so when a user lance on your platform they wanna know what's in it for me. Not how can. I buy her thing because if they don't know you they're not going to buy immediately so you have to think of ways to stand out from the crowd and share us the person in your brand because you are your brand to find a way to do that where he can start developing your own community and develop their trust. You wanna use reels for your personality your unique personality. So reels can help you. Stand out from the crowd for what you have to offer. Maybe you have a similar product as everyone else maybe have a bible study or podcast or whatever but there's only one you in only you can say it the way you can say it and reels as a way to show your personality and your products and shine and get those out there. I'm not saying. Do away with your photos and your graphs and things like that. I think there's a place for those. But i'm also saying we can't ignore this anymore. We can't we just can't so here's a tip. Here's a way to start. If you aren't using video at all or you're hesitant to show your face start with stories. Just experiment with them. Watch my story. See what i do. There's all kinds of things you can do. You can take a video. There are only fifteen second frames and you can take video of something that you're talking about and then you could practice turning the camera around on you for fifteen seconds if you don't like it. Delete it so stories are a good way to start. If you aren't used to video or showing your face on that note. I do have also a seven day. Instagram story challenge. It's free you see a lot of people taking it. I'll share your frames in tag down in my story. So there is that free resource to if you're like starting at ground zero and you don't know what to do with video so wrapping up reels. Are the wave of the instagram future. Right now. short form video is even more popular than ever in our youtube generation. I recently did a poll in my stories and overwhelmingly the number one struggle users have with reels is surprisingly not even the attack. But it's coming up with ideas for how to use reels for their brand. For this reason. We developed our brand new resource from ruthie. Great on mom cod our reels crash. Course you can head to the show notes to learn all about it but simply put it's a step by step guide from posting your first real to algorithm hacks to implementing reels into your processes and your posting schedule.

She is so personable she is just all you have to do is follow her on instagram. To know that she just loves have fun and she loves to help people. And that's what we love about rin just to recap first of all. She has a podcast. Cod friends of a feather. So check that out. Follow her on. Her friends of a feather count in also ran robbins coach into rabah her six steps to follower growth. In fifteen days. I just want to recap. The first thing she did. Was she posted daily. If you really wanna get off the ground and start gaining subtraction especially if you are starting to build your platform or you're building a second account like ren did because remember. She was speaking to her original friends of a feather podcasts which are moms who need encouragement in growth parenting christian life in then she was also trying to gain clients for her podcast. Coaching business. the two didn't jive and she just felt locked in her brain for how to come up with content but once she split the two accounts which is a gutsy move because she had really built up that first account the thoughts flowed more freely and she said she actually spends less time on instagram. Now i will say. I think it's hard to run more than one account super effectively on instagram. However if you know your strategy in you have the tactics to get there bike. Ran did from my training and coaching. Then it can be done. Let's cover the steps so i like. I said she posted daily and she took what she had learned from my coaching from my intensive and put that to good use she had developed contin categories and she crafted a targeted bio for instance among other things she started planning and she even started posting reels. Which by the way. Y'all reels are hot right now. There's no denying that's where instagram is headed. So you may want to think about delving into that if you haven't yet this is something i teach. Also she offered value in honestly that might be the most important part of all of these. Six steps is offering the value so many times we wanna get our product out there into the hands of the buyers. But you can't do that on instagram. Without first establishing trust especially if you are an entrepreneur seeking to sell maybe your service or your own product or your book corey podcast so you must offer value in. You can't out give the way to do. This is to drip out little tips of value. I do this all the time on my own account rethink right. Not mom teaching instagram. And beyond and yeah people can google. They can go. And they're going to find these tips anywhere. However i am establishing maya authority and i want to be known as an authentic christian mom and entrepreneur who is wanting to mentor others in that same vein. That kind of culture. And that's who i attract. I attract people just like that believers his who want to further the kingdom of christ and who also want to market on instagram valentine's times believers think marketing as dirty word. But it is not especially if you know that's what you're supposed to be doing in your helping others in the process. The last thing she said to do was to ask interactive questions. And that's something a lot of times we forget in. We leave out of our content strategy. We want to get our message out so we blasted in. We tell and we say in. We just like it's almost like we shove it down their throats when we're forgetting to listen to our audience in ask you see..

"You can put your spin on your message and market in a way that feels authentic to you because nobody wants to sound like an infomercial and now here's your host. Ruthie gray ran. Robbins is a veteran. Podcast of five years high castes coach and was given the honor of being on the top fifty moms in pike casting from podcast magazine in both twenty twenty at twenty twenty one. She has curated over a hundred and seventy five podcast episodes on her own. Podcast called friends of feather where she encourages others to spur them. On in the gifts and talents god has given them welcome. My friend hide cast coach and queen of instagram. Reels ran robbins. they. I love thank you. I love that you sing. 'em ikea's i'm here like like we need to sing together. I'm excited to be here is also yes. We should have done a duet pre. You know that would have been awesome. You mind reporting. Yeah also or not. Y'all y'all gotta check out her real. They're so funny and she does like you. Do normally sing to like you. Just randomly saying yeah. Let me saying it's fine. We're fine everybody's fine. you know. That's all as i've mentioned you are my very own podcast coach and the reason i've stayed steady for over a year now. We just celebrated one year of the who instagram in flatter. Heck's podcasts. And i believe i was your first coaching client. But since then you've gone onto coach. Many more who have been launched their own. Podcasts so yeah. Why did you decide to do that. Let me tell you. It is so cool because i started my podcast. Five years ago. I was a part time. Stay at home mom. I was a kindergarten teacher. The other part time. And then. I remember where i was on the road when i was driving and god was like you need to start a podcast. I was like okay. I don't know anything about about. And i went home and searched google frustrated. You know many many days and weeks of trying to figure it out. But i knew god called me to it like we're gonna do this like we're gonna we're gonna figure it out and so spent many hours doing that and started it. I did not have a launch. I didn't do anything right in the beginning. I mean i didn't even use hashtags ruthie on instagram. Because i was scared. Somebody's gonna find me like what like. That's why you have a podcast. People find you hear your message. Like we've guy and i didn't and i was scared in so i i mean that was five years ago and then And i just continued on. But i was in a facebook group with you where business coach because everybody needs a business coach right how law and i just put a question out there. Hey y'all do. I need to do a podcast horse or do i need to do coaching. And you were like you need to coaching. And i might be your first client. And i was like okay and then i didn't follow up really. I didn't do anything right. I did not follow up. You like facebook. Message me to follow up and be like. Hey here's your dinner you chase me down. So that's how it all started. But then i remember as soon as i started podcasting our would be listening to business podcast. I'd be listening and would be reading like getting my hands on anything and everything about business and never realized why. Until when i got your message and i was like okay. I think maybe coaching might be something for me. One on one. Especially because i enjoy that and i think i'm gifted in that and i know podcasting i've been doing it five years like i can tell them what not to do because i did. What do you know. I figured it out. And so that's that's how that's how it started. It started with you raising a chase you down girl to do what you say you're gonna do. Actually that's what we need like. You said it's it's good to have a coach because then they kinda hold your feet to the fire. Then you're accountable. Then you're committed. You gotta do it right. And if not we'll we'll hunt you down in sweet way gently hunt you down. So they knew went on to become a client of mine. Yes and join my membership training and grew your friends of a feather account on instagram. And then you continued to hit your goals and explode your instagram growth and talk about a dream student. This girl here is like i said she's the queen of reels here but you just made a super gutsy move. You just launched a brand new instagram account. After building the other one up so much after working for the past five years on your original account. Why don't you share with us why you did that you know. It was a total a personal decision for me. I was posting on my friends of a feather account. I by having your training. I was like okay. I know what to do. And i'm going to do it. And then i kinda changed the rules. Like oh i'm going to be podcast. Coaching now. Will these original people who follow me followed me because of my podcast. And so their moms. That are not necessarily businesswomen. Well my avatar for my coaching is business. Women christian women in ministry or business that want to start a podcast. And i walked them through the steps and so i changed the rules so when you change the rules you need to kind of think about who is your avatar. Who were you serving and so for me. It just made more sense to separate. I struggled i you know i struggle with a mindset that is just crippling sometimes about the impostor syndrome and i i mean we've had many discussions about this over fox and zoom and all the things and i just you know when you know you just know you know in your gut you need to do something and deep down. I had been feeling this way. And i was like i need a separate the accounts i need to. It's crazy. it's crazy for somebody to say ren you built this up for you went from having no hashtags to figuring out hashtags through reach raytheon doing all the things and now you're going to start from scratch but then i thought you know what that ruthie. I've have all those intensive trainings. And i know what to do. So it just was because at change. The rules and i needed to be for myself to be more free to post. I was crippled a lot of times. Because i was thinking about the two avatars going back and forth and you can do it. Somebody can do it. Well i could not and so now. I have so much freedom. I can't tell you how much freedom. I have with both accounts. And i'm not on instagram all the time like to be. Let me tell you. I learned again but i can't but it that's it that's it. I changed the rules. And i know what to do. So that's that's why i did it. Yeah that was good see. I remember the day that you sent me a boxer and said that i was like oh girl the. Are you sure you won't do that but you did. And you did it well and so. So let's talk about this okay. We talked about the pivot. Now let's talk about because you were super niche in your new account. Let's talk about how it's growing in. How fast it's growing. You went from zero to one hundred in fifteen days right dead. Try okay so tell us what you did to explode that growth. What were the exact steps. You took a k-..

"The work in the tons and amounts of hours that you're pudding and then pull back from so many so many hours. What can you do that. You would feel like you were serving your audience and yet you could still charge. That for me was teaching instagram. And eventually which transitioned into coaching clients and opening my memberships. That was it for me. That was the low hanging fruit. What's the low hanging fruit for you. What's right in front of you that you might be ignoring that. Sue breezy for you. But it's not easy for everybody else. Think about come on. You're smart and you're smarter than you think you are number three. Ask yourself this. What is the simplest way to go about it. Don't go all around the horn for me. It was simply transitioning my blog from re-release regroup to ruthie. Great out mom and for movie. Great mom to housing the podcast. There i changed my instagram account. Name so many times. I can't even tell you that username. But i did it and i just stayed the trajectory. Not everybody will encourage you to do that. I'm saying this is what worked for me. Think about what is the simplest way because often we get so paralyzed and all the different steps. That's gonna take that we do nothing. That's not good right. What's the simplest way. Okay so three things to do. I want to give you this parting advice about your number one. Don't do what everyone else does. And follow what everyone else says. You are the only person with your personality. So do what feels right between you. And god pray pray pray pray take it to the lord. Read the word meditate on it and then go for it. Go and not. Everyone will agree with your decision but you just have to let that go especially if you know in your heart of hearts that is step for you let the naysayers to don't just let it roll off your back. I had naysayers to. I dared. But i knew i was doing when i was supposed to do number to choose one authority.

"Through twenty twenty and twenty twenty one and i read a book by greg. Mckellen called essential ism which changed the trajectory of my business. And i'll never forget the graphic in there there. Two circles one circle has arrows coming out from it. All around the circle and the other circle has an era going straight up from it. The boyne is if you're trying to do everything then you're not going to get much done but if you tried to do one thing well you can really gain momentum and cover ground. That's when i decided that. I probably could create a business and help women with instagram. So that was my pivot and then you may say well. What did you do with your blog by now. The blog was called. Recy- great out mom and i decided i'm gonna it's just gonna do my content here on this same blog. So my tagline before was mentoring moms to capture joy in parenting now. The tagline is entry moms to capture joy in home business. And that is where a house. My podcast you may not have the same philosophy as me but my philosophy is sort of the easy button. What is the most simple thing. The simplest way to get from a to be without thinking so hard that my brain cramps and without doing all these other going behind myself having to clean up all this other stuff was the simplest way to get from a to be so for me. The simplest way was just to do it with the platforms. That i already had so. I stuck with the blog. I did try to create a new instagram account. And i realize that it just wasn't working conan decided to go into business with instagram. As my you know what. I was teaching. I'm not in business for instagram. By any means they do not pay me. Instagram osama with instagram. And anyone else so just throwing that out there. I just couldn't do it. I could not run to accounts. And i don't really advise it either. I think it's very hard to run to instagram accounts. And do it. Well if you're one person. And i am just one person you probably are too so i came back over roussy grain out. Mom said okay.

"The country's civilian leader, Ahn Sung Souci, will remain in custody for another two days. The military staged a coup on February. 1st and people have been protesting it, but the big questions right now are why did the coup happened when it did? And what happens next? Here's NPR's Julie McCarthy. By the hundreds of thousands citizens armed only with indignation March daily against the military takeover. the escalating dangers, teachers, engineers and doctors in their scrubs demand that civilian rule be reinstated the country's defacto leader Aung Songs, Hoochie was arrested February 1st thwarting the decisive re election of her National League for Democracy. The U. N Human Rights Office is tracking more than 350 political and state officials, along with activists, journalists, monks and students who have been detained. Young gon based commentator Kinzel Win, says the atmosphere Feels like the upheaval of 1988 when the whole country went out to protest on the streets of Yangon just by comparison, at time, it ended badly. Some people shot and kills and the army taking over again. When says it is a once in a generation event, especially inflaming the young voters who came of age under me and Mars fitful transition to democracy. They don't want to even hear the name of that. C zero Power takeoff power historian thought Manu, author of the Hidden History of Burma, says over the past decade the Army had relinquished day today governing to an elected parliament. Ah hybrid arrangement that left to the generals in charge of security and believing that after surviving years of Western sanctions They were in a position of strength. But chief parliamentarian Long songs who achieved sought to change that governing model and the constitutional change she wanted was to have the army under the control of an elected government. And under the control of her and this has led to tension meant who says Souci was alert to the possibility the army would probe for an opportunity to overthrow her November's election set the stage. Souci refused to discuss any alleged irregularities at the polls, which the army claimed had reduced its share of oats. Generals took the refusal as an affront on do that feeling of disrespect comes after many years where they've also felt not properly consulted where she's had the limelight where she seeking to undermine this kind of set up that they've had over the past 10 years meant juices from the Army's point of view, the hybrid model might have worked with lesser luminaries. The generals didn't count on the 75 year old on songs. Hooches sustained Star power or that this daughter of Burma's independence hero had a taste for power that might sideline them. But she broke the mold and in a way what's happened this past week? Has been the end of that experiment to see if that system could work with her as well, innit? Kinzel Win says it's entirely possible that the Army never intended Maura than one term for young songs hoochie and they had to find every Ruthie can think of You keep her away, and now it has succeeded but meant who says it's not clear whether the generals will only be satisfied if Souci is permanently removed. The situation, he says, is difficult to read. Myanmar's military rulers have seized power during a pandemic, which has made the messiness of governing even Messier. People are hungry and financially hurting, and now they stand on balconies, banging pots and pans furious over losing their democratic experiment. Julie McCarthy. NPR news

As a community inflamed by poop police brutality by the violence of guns by people committing violence against each other, but yet we're going to measure temperature with a temperature gun and we're going to point it at the person had to get the temperature reading as right so then. My little PSA was. Don't allow them to take your temperature by pointing this gun on your head. Have them check on your arm or hand? and. I definitely. Triggered some folks based on what data. I would like to know the research. Someone Role? I tried to go. Why because my job does this to me every single time I enter the office, but all this.

I said let me see, I, said. Yes I am. You can have them checked the temperature somewhere else. Protector temple things are moving so fast also, there's a psychology to this action that is.

They wanted to check her temperature, and they wanted to check her temperature on her forehead, and instinctively she took the gun, and she just pointed to her wrist as she said No. You check their.

Remember healthy communities. Begin with us. Okay we've got to take care of our community. Our family, our children, our schools, our cities.

Sabrina Ionescu on Her Next Move

"Hey Sabrina how's it going good her you that Sabrina UNESCO the presumptive number-one pick tomorrow's WNBA draft? I'm good so the draft is tomorrow night I tell us. What is the scene at? Your House can't be like I'm really just going to be with my parents. My brother and his wife and the twin brother just a small group of us that have been together and just watch the TV in. Have a good time. Are you going to get dressed up in any way which these days means just putting on pants with the button? Yeah No. I'm not going to wear a dress or anything. I think I'm just going to put on jeans and a shirt. That's big in the big. That shows you're serious. I can't remember the last time I wear jeans. But that's neither here nor there. You are not the only duck headed to the pros at your teammates. Bali Ruthie Hubbard are both being projected as first round picks which is of course a reminder to everyone of how good the team was obviously the tournament. Being canceled was a big disappointment after you return for a final season. I want to ask about it this way. What do you think you gained from coming back for that last year? I think I gained so much just maturity leadership and just really the relationships that I built during that last year I mean so many people were excited and happy that I returned in. I mean I think the community just around women's basketball at in Oregon grew when so it was really eye opening to be able to see all the relationships that I made during that year. And just how close a as a team that we got so Obviously that translated on the Evolving my game getting better on all sides so the drafts is happening. Which is great even though it's virtual but there is no certainty right now around the actual season. How are you wrapping your mind around that yet? I mean it's hard trying to figure out when to ramp up training in exactly you know knowing when the seasons GonNa be played in when you're supposed to be in your prime in so just trying to do everything I can to stay in shape so as of now. I'm just running playing basketball working out. You know not trying to do too much too soon. Just because I'm not sure when the season's GonNa start but just staying mentally and physically ready you have wanted to play in the WNBA. Since you are very young we have video evidence that three laws just throwing the ball around again a lot of experience playing on my brothers ten foot from overall value on my basketball experiences looking forward to anymore my family has always been there for as Beijing to keep pushing David. Wnba and now that it's here it's sort of at your footsteps. How do you feel it will be different from the basketball? You played so far. I mean it's going to be completely different. Just the physicality the level of competition. It's kind of just a new way of taking on the game in a new way of basketball. It's going to be completely different than college. High School anything that I've ever done in some really excited for the opportunity to get better and just learn finding different ways to look up to not only my teammates but other veterans in the League. Transfer Ball game in that aspect. Would you anticipate being the most challenging part? Probably just getting adjusted to the physicality in the speed of the game. I mean it coming in as a rookie. There's there's players there that you know I've been planning for ten plus years so they're gonNa make sure no they let you know that you're a rookie in so I think that aspect is going to be fun but also challenging. You got a preview of the pros last November when your team played and beat team. Usa Oregon ducks defeating the United States. National TV ninety three eighty six. What was that like? It was awesome to just be able to share a court with them and learn from them. Obviously the wind was awesome. But I think it was even more special that you know. We're able to sell out crowd against team. Usa just learn from them engage in conversation with them and be able to share court with them because not a lot of people say that they've done that. Was there anyone on that court? That made you geek out a little where you're like. I cannot believe I am right now on a basketball court with person I mean for sure. Like suber Diane Atrocity. There were so many players but I think those would probably be to my favorite just because of gotten to know them a little bit in in being able to play with them. This was an honor so every mock draft every analysts every article has you projected to be the first overall pick. How does that make you feel? I mean until my name's called until I can sign the paper. I'm not too excited about it. I don't WanNa be disappointed so I never expect anything so obviously very humbled excited about the opportunity to be playing in Brooklyn in that organization until here might many call notes official kind of just keeping up level so if you did go first overall a Newark Liberty. Were ten twenty four buses in anywhere you go near the top you'd be on a rebuilding team. How does that strike you joining a team? That's not already on top. I mean I did that organ for the last four years so I know exactly what it's like having to come in kind of build a program from the ground up so that doesn't scare me at all. I'm excited to be. You know a piece of the puzzle in hopefully get things rolling when you look back at your college career. Take stock of it. What was the most special moment to you? I probably just say time with my teammates and getting filed for there were so many highs through those four years in so many great wins and just being able to do that with a group of girls in team that really cares about each other was very special. What was the lowest moment? Probably losing in the final four on my career short. Those two probably the worst. How did you get the news that the tournament was cancelled or coach? Had texted us. Basically just said you guys can stay where you are with your families. You don't have to return gene. The tournaments cancelled arm. Sorry in everyone was responding in that group messages. Our team were chatting so you let us know and obviously it was heart breaking out again. You were expecting it to go that direction. How long did take you to kind of process? You know. I wasn't really processing it. I try not to think about it too much in just like all right. This is out of my control. It is what it is in Kinda. Just try to look forward on on what was next in. There are so many things going on that I didn't really you know. Focus on it too much in. Probably they look back into Swish. That we couldn't went on with the season so we could have seen how it would turn out in what have been able to play my last game knowing it was my last game but just not to look back on it too much. We had an episode. Fivethirtyeight ran a simulation on the tournament. They head Baylor winning now. Our analyst opposed that idea. How do you think it would've played out I don't think we were going to lose again. I guess. Take that as you want it but I did not see us losing again. So that's all I can say. Well I think watching the draft and seeing the number of players who were going to be taken first overall. That doesn't seem like a outrageous proposition. No three out of the top ten probe. We're going to be going to the League from one team that speaks for itself and super excited for my teammates. But I do think it speaks about what we had as a team. They're probably not likely that another team. Whatever you know. Get to that point again. What is the aspect of playing regularly that you miss the most just competing in playing games especially an Eugene is having our fan base in projected to have two more sellout crowds probably about twenty thousand people in Portland if we made it so regionals and so having that support system implying a real game something that all that are missing right now? You mentioned that Oregon Team USA. You guys sold out a game. Obviously you have gotten a lot of people excited about women's basketball some people that maybe weren't as excited before. How do you hope to continue that? When you get to the pros. Yeah I mean it's been awesome sooner transformation in Eugene with fans of for my first year to my last than new hopefully being able to bring To wherever team I end up in Kinda just change the way that they view women's sports in hopefully can bring joy and happiness not competing that is kind of addicting and people do want to be a part of that in watching that culture so hopefully just taking matt from from what. I did an Eugene in bringing that to To whatever team on

Awards Season: Oscar Nominations

"We have the golden globes recently today we get the critics choice awards tomorrow very early in the morning they will be announcing the academy award nominations so it's the awards season some times we can glean what will probably happen with the Academy Awards by what happens in the golden globes not always sometimes many times it's wall has been monitoring the critics choice awards and I think we should start there to see if maybe the critics choice awards are either going or falling in line with the golden globes or offering a different message if you will as far as what should be honored this year from first look the critics have got a much more on point and then lie with me then the glow okay let's go down some the category Best Actor yes Joaquin Phoenix for joker given that Best Actress Renee Zellweger for Judy yes best supporting actor Brad Pitt for once upon a time in Hollywood surprises there yep best supporting actress Laura Dern for marriage story he didn't see it heard was okay best young actor romaine Griffin Davis for the judge a rabid movie don't know if there are a lot of kids related films on there but Hey sure give it to him best acting ensemble the Irishman art is a good okay good let's look let's let's slow down and talk about that but what I don't know if they're put it this way is far as acting goes I was very underwhelmed by the Irishman I I really think people are more impressed by the names will histories and legacies of the people involved in the movie as opposed to the actual performances most people were saying that they really like the the understated performance of Joe Pesci yeah it was nice he didn't really cost a lot he didn't beat anyone with a baseball bat but as far as an acting performance I don't think was all that special I don't think Robert de Niro's performance as the Irishman was special it wasn't anything that I said wow that was vintage Robert Dinero it wasn't like there was any particular moment or monologue or passage the people will come away and say we're gonna be quoting that for years we can quote the godfather we can quote good fellas in an area casino what have you there wasn't really anything all that special quotable about the Irishman as far as the ensemble cast it was great to have all these big names together yeah but they had big names together in the Expendables did make it a great movie big names who were to gather it almost seemed like he was with one last ride together for these particular group of actors for this particular genre and I had heard all the hype in I'm a guy who loves the godfather yeah I'm a guy who loves casino and Goodfellas varying degrees but I loved the genre as a whole love the sopranos so that's something I I I know this genre I appreciate the genre when I saw the Irishman it was really weird it was weird what they did to Robert De Niro and his allies making them blue or whatever so he looked like the actual person it was not necessary they could have chosen a different actor if you're gonna do all that was extracting I did like the fact that it's so it's a movie based on real people real incidents in history and it almost quite like the have the story line and as real events happened it breaks away in the show you this person was actually killed by a bullet to the head nineteen seventy one or whatever and I'll show you a still frame of the actual crime scene or something like that that's something I enjoy it but as far as the acting performances there were not we talk about Star Wars hi Scott Walker same thing in the sense of there were no wow moments for me there was nothing which said to me is like wow I've never seen that before no they were getting killed by basically getting whacked like okay we seen people get whacked like this before because they've already told all those stories just changing the name to fictional people another movie so what we see the Irishman which is based on true events and everything not special I didn't think the performances were special that's not a number that are best acting ensemble right okay I would rather Avengers with that because as far as I'm concerned the acting by Robert Downey junior in Avengers in game was stellar okay well I mean look got it and maybe that's why Avengers in game got best action movie finally can best visual effects of got best animated feature is difficult yes yeah best costume design yes Ruthie Carter for dolomite is my name give it to him let's stop right there if you haven't seen dolomite is my name please see it isn't available on Netflix I think you will view Eddie Murphy in a whole different light a whole new light any have best comedy yeah I agree Eddie Murphy has not only reinvented himself but in this particular performance he's just an actor he's not telling jokes like a comedian he is embodying Rudy ray Moore someone completely different and it's telling you the story of how Rudy ray Moore had to reinvent himself from musician to stage performer two eight kind of comedian telling almost wraps stories on stage right right if you know the history and this is a quintessential LA movie in the sense of Rudy ray Moore is inextricably linked to the history of arts and entertainment in Los Angeles yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah you will recognize the landmarks and everything and that is why eighty Murphy deservedly so also got the lifetime achievement award other film awards go to Quentin Tarantino for once upon a time in Hollywood no surprise a Best Director it was a tie Sam Mendes for nineteen seventeen and bomb June hole for parasite can we just go ahead and assume given Hollywood's reaction and also the foreign correspondents reaction to nineteen seventeen that that's probably going to be best picture Best Actor definitely nominated tomorrow for the Oscar nominations yeah we'll probably will win and I say that for this reason for the foreign correspondents association for the golden globes to give nineteen seventeen best drama award what are the ward was and it had not even been released in theaters yet at that point bright I just said to me that it leaves the Hollywood portion critics correspondence whatever they pretty much made up their mind which says to me Hollywood as far as the voting academy members have pretty much made up their mind and they've probably already decided that this is going to be the movie I've heard nothing but superlatives about it I haven't seen it but I'm just reading the tea leaves it is going to get the nomination but I'm saying if I were to place any money nineteen seventy this Best Picture and Best Director just because of all these other indications I'm getting I agree totally agree best sci-fi or horror which is in an Oscar related category not to to my knowledge but us it's good thank I I I I saw the movie everything was great yeah so I'll be in Emma Jordan Peele fan but I did think the movie is great I do appreciate how he tells very different stories that's the story we haven't seen before I can I can watch it and say like wow that's something different is not the typical horror stories come to typical sci fi story has a little twist at the end is what he usually is going to do now is going to be known for that in the way that M. night Shyamalan is known for that I can appreciate what he does I just didn't think the movie was spectacular yeah but I don't know who would love you to hear it I don't know what was up again so when we come back we'll continue with these critics choice awards and also forecast possibly with coming tomorrow morning with the Oscar nominations this the

Deep Healing With Onsite Workshops

"Off of about five days away in Cumberland Farms Hennessy. You said it. I didn't know that's where we were going didn't know about it was it was a a really powerful week and we're excited to share our experience variance so we were with on site workshops outside of. Nashville and our dear friends ruthie Lindsey and Mona's no were able to invite us to this has created retreat. didn't have expectations didn't really make sense for a schedule think about it. You know a week off and do awesome work right before going on tour for the rest of the year but you know say yes so he said yes. I said yes and it was one of the most profound weeks of my life truly we were with some of the most like impactful people that I've come across and have admired for a long time and what was so so cool about that week was that we we didn't talk about what we did and it was so refreshing because I'm sure a lot of you out. There can can relate like when you're in a setting wherever it is like the second question is normally what you do and very rarely did that happen at all and it was just so refreshing so we were able connect like as human beings. I mean the work that we were doing was so hard opening and like emotional that we were able to connect on that that level which was so powerful I was crying all time I know same. Obviously I really let it rip. We yeah we there. There's one that one point in the affirmation circle. Sir was something really beautiful that we did. That was a practice. Yes my most favorite part of the Oh was insane so it's the entire group group of of people that are at this retreat and we are sitting in chairs and then it's almost like musical chairs where the people are going around and they're whispering in your ear a beautiful formation and was insane. Everyone was laughing me because I was like insane as if no one has ever said anything nice to me honest and it sucks because so when we first started I was the first group and we went around. I thought it was just basic affirmations like if you Google affirmation you hear you're like I'm worthy I am peace and so I was saying basic affirmations and I was like I'm GonNa give everyone the same one and then I realized because the person behind me I'm like Oh. They're making them custom. As all the shit this is fun and so then you can make this beautiful affirmation of like something that we recognized or saw within that person and it was stunning. It was so so beautiful and it's I think we got so much because it's it's true and it's like what we don't say to ourselves selves at all so to hear someone else say that's kind of like when you're on a birthday party and you're like hey. Let's say something great about birthday. It's like that but because is there was music playing in our eyes were closed and the week itself was just so raw like it felt it literally felt like the biggest hug you've ever gotten in your life. It was so so nice I recommend doing that. You're in a women's circle or just an intimate gathering. It's such a beautiful exercise. You have a circle you have. The people half the people sit down in the center. Everyone else stands around them and then you just kind of go one by one around the circle yet. Don't creep anyone out. You know mean fucking pervert. I think one of the week everyone out but it really and what I really realized that I really loved about it. It was true receiving I wasn't looking at them. I wasn't engaging with them with you. You know body energy. You know when someone says something kind to me. I am beside myself energetically and emotionally physically so it's also tiring you know on the other end too because of maybe I'm not believing it and I'm hoping to or I'm hoping that they receive that. I'm thankful but to just receive a really beautiful way and not have to give anything back was like Whoa Yeah

Venezuela's Maduro Shuts Down Border with Brazil to Stop Aid

"Tomorrow is the deadline set by one Guido widely viewed as the interim president of Venezuela for humanitarian aid to be delivered to the impoverished country. Then his way has been facing rampant, hyper inflation and shortages of food and medicine after years of misrule by President Nicolas Maduro who still clings to power. Mr. muddle won the presidency again last year in elections that were widely viewed as fraudulent now Venezuela's opposition and more than fifty countries recognize Mr. Widodo as the president. He's been organizing stockpiles of food and medicine in Colombia, and Brazil and will be traveling to the Colombian border from Caracas to meet the deliveries. He's also called for volunteers to come to the border and help distribute it more. No single thin guarantee. Ah mister Modesto says he'll block any aid deliveries yesterday. He closed the border between Venezuela and Brazil and has threatened to close the border also with Colombia. Nicholas maduro. The president basically deny is that there's a humanitarian crisis going on in Venezuela part of the pace that the opposition is making is we're the guys who can relieve these shortages and begin to feed you properly and begin to provide medicines in the hospitals. So we'll any of Mr. guidos humanitarian aid make it into the country. Brooke Unger is our America's editor what is Mr. Guido planning this weekend. He said February twenty third is the day when all the say that's piling up in Columbia and other countries around. Venezuela will begin to move into Venezuela. To relieve the humanitarian crisis there and the big question is going to be can you make that happen? And what will the government do to stop it? Where's this aid coming from a lot of it's coming from the US? They're awesome European countries that are contributing aid to this effort. So it's coming from quite a number of places. But yeah, mainly from outside the region, and why this deadline what's special about the twenty third Guido and a rally. Week or so ago said, you know, kind of name the twenty third is being the day when this would begin to happen. So it's kind of self imposed deadline, but they needed to start at some point. And you know, obviously in addition to being a day when hopes that aid begins to flow into Venezuela. You know, there's there's a lot of politics and symbolism surrounding this day. So he not only wants food medicine to get the people, but he wants the world to sort of rally around the idea that, you know, his interim government is going to is going to provide support for for Hungary Venezuelans so about that crucial. Question of Ken, Mr. Guido, get this eight through do you think he can what is what's the plan? What he does have what he's trying to have is he's signed up hundreds of thousands of volunteers who were supposedly going to try and begin to bring this aid from the border with Colombia into something like twelve cities inside Venezuela. And how that actually is going to play out will be very interesting to see, you know, we don't know exactly what his tactics are going to be you know, one thing to to point out is that the the border between. Colombia and Venezuela was pretty porous you know, you could have all in tears crossing the border on guarded points. And attempting to bring aid in that way. There's also speculation that you know, they might be airdrops of aid from from US planes a could come in that way or by or by boat. So, you know, we don't know exactly what Ruthie eight is going to take. And what we really don't know is what the reaction of Venezuela's armed forces are going is going to be what might they do it. Why can they be seem to stop aid coming in the government portrays this essentially as sort of invasion of Venezuela? I mean, they they regard the delivery of American aid as being kind of a cover for an attempt to in American attempt to topple the government in American invasion of swords. And you know, they would see stopping the aid as being away of defending their sovereignty. President Trump has come out clearly in support of Guido. Except president widens generous offer of amnesty deliver your life in peace with your families, and your countrymen what's America's interest in this whole question. Don't Trump has taken a very firm and consistent line against the Madero regime, which is not entirely consistent with his line on other repressive dictators in the rest of the world their various explanations for that. I mean, one reason may be that they're quite a lot of Americans Venezuelan and Cuban origin in Florida, which is an important swing state. And so, you know, it it it Trump wants to appear to be on the side of those people who are who are certainly against the Venezuelan regime. You know, it's also true that, you know, some prominent Republicans in particular Marco Rubio, who's from Florida has kind of made it his his 'cause right? What about the effect that might have been in in the country? It could it be that the Venezuelan people like meddling American administration even less than they like the situation. They've got. There's a big risk here at the moment, the US and the opposition in Venezuela are kind of working hand in glove, and the opposition of gone along with very very tough American sanctions, which the hope is that the sanctions are going to dislodge the regime by denying the cash basically needs to survive, but you know, in doing that it's also going to worsen the the plight of the Venezuelan people. So you have this rather ironic situation where in order to push the regime out the opposition to starting with measures that that will hurt their own people. You know at the moment, there's an alliance there. But it certainly, you know, it's certainly true that if the US follows through with its threat to begin to use military force to push the regime out, then the the the equation could change. I I think it's very important that this process and Venezuela be seen as you know, Venezuelans getting rid of victory will regime rather than as Americans coming in. And imposing a government that suits them will this work for. I do you think that? He he will be able to sort of assume power in in full or will Mr. Madero hang on in the long run. I think that's very very difficult to say it's clear that the pillars of support for this regime are crumbling. They've lost public support. They've lost international support except for a few few isolated countries. Like Russia and Turkey, even China is is kind of wavering. They're running out of cash, but unless you you begin to see real signs of defection within the armed forces. You know, this regime can this regime can go on. And there's no further indication that support for him within this sort of the higher echelons of the military is is crumbling at the moment. There's no such indication. You had the the defense minister saying a couple of days ago that the coalition arranged against the government would have to topple it over his dead body. The the army high command seems to be pretty solidly with Madero. So there's no real indication except for a few isolated cases of defense. Action that the army is going to desert the gene,
