So you have a great product.
That’s not enough.
The fact is, the marketplace is crowded, the social feeds are noisy, and most commercials — annoying. As a solopreneur, how do you stand-out, get noticed, and build your tribe?
Yep! That’s it! The single most important way to build and engage your audience is through communication. And not just any blah, blah, blah. It has to be great. Crafting a 2-way conversation is a must. And…it has to be compelling enough for them to stick around until the end.
One of the most effective ways to share your message is through storytelling. Everyone loves a super story. It takes us on a journey. If done well, we feel like we are right there with the author; laughing, crying, outraged. It allows us to escape our world, and turn down the volume of life, if even for just a moment or two.

With summer upon us here in Upstate, New York, it brings about many images of overflowing gardens and the abundance of flowering trees. As I was looking at my garden, correlations between gardening and growing a new business started coming to mind.
Let’s look at how you can grow your business and what it takes to reap the “fruits of your labor.”
Any good gardener knows that taking time and care when designing a new garden is crucial. There is a lot of work, hours of preparation and toil, and expense that goes into establishing a “new site.” Similarly, a new business owner has to create a home on the web and put the same effort into developing its new site to launch from.
Once the site is set up, the building foundation comes next. For the gardener, deciding what type of garden you want is an important factor. After researching the pros and...

After 16 years of working in schools and ed-tech companies, Tamara Kemper had accidentally become an expert in getting things done. Now, as the founder of Process Mentors, she helps small business owners scale their businesses through better back-end processes and internal training.

She herself is a forever learner and problem solver. She started focusing on how to make things work better and...
As business owners, we can run ourselves ragged!
The days fly by without notice of how many hours we’re spending in front of the computer, sitting at a desk, cruising around, whatever it may be.
Our heads are buried in paperwork, our “to do” lists, our scroll. It’s so easy to neglect to tune into our bodies, minds, and especially heart with this kind of routine.
How can we stay uber-productive AND have time to care for ourselves?
First, we have to overcome our self-objections to self-care.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard people say, “Oh, a massage…that’s indulgent.” OR “Sounds nice, but I just don’t have it in the budget.” OR “I feel guilty or selfish when I pencil in ‘me’ time.”
These statements are not true. They are from critical beliefs; patterns that have lodged themselves in our...
