My Biggest Secret To Success: One Word To Live By

  1. Johanne says:

    These are great values. Things every business owner should live by. I just started my work as a freelancer and I have no idea what I’ve gotten myself into haha, but I need to remind myself of these principals!

    • admin says:

      Thank you! I may make a printable for you all so you have a pretty reminder. I don’t know where I would be today without these values.

  2. Nicole says:

    Great insights here! I’ve been working to build trust with my readers-it definitely takes time!

  3. Melanie says:

    I love this! Trust is so important!

  4. Rachel says:

    Love the part about being unique! Just be yourself and people will love you. So hard to do in today’s social media filled society – but so very true! Thank you.

    • admin says:

      Being yourself is the best thing you can be. Remember in the world of social media that so many people pretend that everything is perfect. Share your own struggles and show yourself through the lens of authenticity.

  5. Keri says:

    These are great. Thank you for the reminder that it does take time to know your reader. It isn’t going to happen overnight. You need to build a relationship!

    • admin says:

      You’re very welcome dear. It takes time to find and build your tribe. But if you operate with authenticity and integrity you will attract your tribe.

  6. Yolanda says:

    Really great advice. I think a lot of this is a really good reminder to just be authentic, creative and to work hard 🙂

  7. Danielle says:

    All such great tips!! Connecting with others is so important!

    • admin says:

      It is so important!! We cannot get so wrapped up in the day to day running of our business that we forget to connect with our Tribe.

  8. Sigoni says:

    I love how you used Trust as an acronym! I completely agree that trust is the best way to run your business! When it comes to anything from your regular content to reviews and sponsored content, if you’re not honest they will know. And they definitely won’t come back.

    • admin says:

      Amen!! I run my business with integrity and want my Tribe to know that I care about them. I want them to know that I want the best for them and their businesses.

  9. chelsey says:

    This is great! I couldn’t agree more with gaining respect it really is super important!

    • admin says:

      Yes, it really is. You have to respect your Tribe before they will respect you. That means respecting their time (don’t waste it), respecting their opinions, and respecting their businesses.

  10. Heather says:

    I think honesty is key and some bloggers tend to embellish too much! Great Post!

    • admin says:

      I am sorry that some out there don’t just tell it like it really is. One thing is for sure I refuse to tell people I have accomplished something I haven’t. I make a good living from my business, but I’m not going to tell you I’m making millions and then get you to think I can get you to the same level. Honesty and Integrity are key.

  11. Katie says:

    I LOVE this!!! I need to write this in my planner for a daily reminder.

    • admin says:

      Thank you!! I have it printed and hanging on my pegboard so I see it several times a day. I may make a printable for it for you all.

  12. Bailey says:

    It’s so important to realize what makes you you and to stick to that. Be unique!

  13. susie says:

    • admin says:

  16. Yvette says:

    I think these are wonderful. I just in the process of starting my own small business and these really resonated with what I will strive for.

    • admin says:

      Congrats Yvette! Starting a business is a lot of fun. I am so happy you liked the post and that it will help you run your business. These values are so important to gain the trust of your audience.

  17. Rebecca says:

    I appreciate this article. Some very nice insights and values to keep and hold onto. Not only for business but everyday.

    • admin says:

      Thank you for such kind words Rebecca. I am so glad that you enjoyed it. These values are so important for every business owner to have, but you’re right it’s important for all people to have these values as well.

  18. I don’t yet have a business but would possibly like to one day. I think these tips are all relevant to my blog. I try to do these things but it’s always good to have a reminder.

      It’s a good way to just live our lives in general I think. Trust is such a fragile thing not just in business but also in everyday life.

  19. Mandy says:

    That’s such a real and raw way to run a business. You come across as an easily respectable person and friend because of that.

    • admin says:

      Thank you, Mandy. That is so kind of you to say. I feel everyone deserves respect and that trust is the most important part of running a business.

  20. Kristin says:

    Yes! That’s a great business strategy for sure! All of those things are very important and it’s a great acronym!

  21. Kalyn says:

    All great and very important points! I know it can be so tempting to be like everyone in your niche, but uniqueness really is key! Thanks for the reminder!

    • admin says:

      When you see someone killing it in your niche it is so easy to try and copy them, but it’s our uniqueness that sets us apart and keeps people invested in our businesses.

  22. Kelsey says:

    This is great. Honesty is always a number one for me. The purpose of my blog is to show the truth aspects of motherhood, and being honest is top priority. Thanks for sharing!

    • admin says:

      You’re welcome, Kelsey. Motherhood is not all sunshine and roses. My house is a wreck right now thanks to overturned toy boxes and yes, that irritating, but not the end of the world. I think too many people try and show their lives as perfect and in order when the reality is anything but. Honesty is not always easy but I think it’s a must for any blogger or business owner.

  23. I love your reminder to be unique and true to you. That’s so important if you want to establish an authentic connection with your readers. Thanks for these great tips!

  24. yvette says:

    Great article, will be looking at this in my own new venture for sure. Finding the unique ness is always a struggle, but I am trying to link it to my own voice and who I am and what I stand for, hopefully that will work.

  25. vian says:

    Correct, TRUST is everything. If they cannot trust you, they will never buy from you! Don’t over promise what you cannot deliver. Be truthful in every way!
