Our Go and Glow Store Opens in Atlanta

Hey ladies,

We launched our GO AND GLOW Store in Atlanta 3 days ago (for the summer only) and I wanted to personally offer my blog subscribers 10% off when you come and shop with us.

 

GRAND OPENING (1)

Not only do I want to invite you to shop, but I want to share this journey with you. There was some fear, doubt and setbacks to open this cute little kiosk in the mall, but we did it.

I like to share my journey with other women because maybe I can empower you to step out on faith to do what it is you want to do. There are financial sacrifices you’ll have to make, and time will not be something you can take for granted. And if you’re a person that likes to have assurance of something working out or being successful – you’ll have to give that up. Without great risk there is no reward. Failure may be your rite of passage to get to the land of freedom. As for me, I’ve officially relinquished all ego of worrying about failing. I understand that failing is a part of it. And so is risk. And on the other side of those 2 is success.  So whatever it is you’ve been thinking about doing – please do it!

Go and Glow Store Opening

 

As for why I opened a store when I sell my t-shirts and gifts online – I wanted to create a physical place where millennial women and moms could come and buy motivational apparel and gifts for themselves and for the people they love. I also wanted to diversify my brand and expand from being strictly online. Sometimes you have to think outside the traditional box of promoting your brand. There are so many people who have no idea what GO AND GLOW is. Here’s our chance to have a live space where we can talk about empowerment and sell cute stuff too. 7 days a week, 11 hours a day. A few months out of the year. We’ll be here just for the summer selling our t-shirts, our tote bags for the beach, our tanks, our crop tops, our journals and gifts for the home. And we want you to stop by and see us!

If you come by, use the code “GOANDGLOWBLOG” for 10% off your purchase. We’re in Perimeter Mall in Atlanta.

I’ll see you on the other side of fear.

GO AND GLOW!

The Beginning of Summer ’16

posted in: Business, Entrepreneurship | 0

Hey Glowers!

I know I have some explaining to do. And I think you’re going to be able to appreciate this because so many of my centers of influence have told me how they wish they could’ve done what I just did.

I’ve just completed a Digital Detox that involved months of not being online and giving myself the permission to live authentically offline, develop more enriching relationships with the people who were around me, with my clients, with some of my networking friends on social media, and even with some of my followers.

During my detox I was working on building websites and marketing/branding collateral for clients – and then they would start to refer me – and before you knew it I was creating platforms for other people and somewhat neglecting my own. I’ve also been working on a few other projects, consulting and creating additional streams of income. I realized, actually, that I was getting more clients (and a few more coins) by word of mouth/referral and not necessarily through social media.

So, I’ve had to take on the challenge of getting back to empowering women through my Go and Glow!brand online, yet still finding balance in growing my business offline as much as possible. And can I be completely honest? In a lot of ways I feel I’ve graduated from social media engagement. I just don’t have the time to be on there as much as I did last year. You know how you feel bad when you go to your family reunion and you know you hadn’t been in touch with a lot of family and you don’t really know what’s going on in their lives? That’s how I sort of feel now. Some of my followers have had some amazing things happen in their businesses and brands – and in their lives, and I’ve missed those things within the last few months. And some of you have emailed me and checked on me and filled me in on what’s been going on and have shared your accomplishments, and I’m so appreciative of that! And so proud of everyone. And a little sad I wasn’t there to hi-five you on your courage and girlboss-ness. (Is that a word?)  Also, I have a little shrine of the cards, notes and emails you guys sent me – which filled my love tank all the way up. Thank You.

But for those who are still feeling a bit confused, disempowered or unchampioned – I’m here to lift you back up and to get you off that social media addiction (unless you’re using it to make money) and into your passion. It’s definitely time for you to stop watching everyone else and start detoxing from things that distract you from your purpose.

I was thinking about having a call soon where we could all share some of the awesome breakthroughs we’ve been having as well as some Q & A on what you could be doing to go to the very next level, even if it’s a tiny baby step level.  Would you be interested in that? If so, reply back and let me know. I would absolutely love to talk to you and hear what you’ve done, what you need and how you want to start the 2nd part of this year off.


In the meantime, if you’re in the Atlanta area I’ll be a panelist at the Unlocked Summit this coming Saturday and I’ll be sharing how to UNLOCK YOUR GLOW. When I tell you I am SO EXCITED about this summit because the founders are amazing women who share so many of the same philosophies as me regarding female empowerment and entrepreneurship. And they’ve built this amazing community of women who all are on the same path as you and who are trying to find the resources to build their empires. They’ve had summits in Detroit, Chicago and now it’ll be here in Atlanta this Friday and Saturday June 3 & 4.

So, come out and see me and the other speakers and panelists and let’s catch up! They’re even offering a discount on your ticket if you use my code “GOANDGLOW” on the Eventbrite website. So don’t wait til the last minute because there are only a few tickets left. Click >> here  <<.


And again, if you’re interested in the conference call, reply back and I’ll put one together for all of us. 

GO AND GLOW!

Don’t Ignore God’s Assignment for You

Hey Glowers!

Today I had an appointment with a client who I’m so proud of. She’s creating a brand to empower the youth. She hired me to do her marketing collateral and she shared a lot of her journey with me for the past 2 months that I was grateful she shared with me. Of all the setbacks, disappointments and no’s she got from people while organizing this event, she kept going and was determined to see her project to the finish line because of her assignment from God. Today is her inaugural event in her hometown and she’ll be teaching young girls about AIDS awareness and prevention, proper nutrition and life skills. She said that there was no one in her small hometown who had ever had a big event like this and she wanted to reach out to them and show the girls that she cares. Now imagine how blessed those girls are going to be to receive information and love from her!

I got inspired by that because I’m also working on my #GoandGlowKidsandTeens platform and I understand that as much as I love working with women, I also have to continue to reach back to our young girls and empower them. Mentoring and teaching kids has always been a HUGE part of my existence, and I know it’s one of those things that’s innate for me. But with all of the other components of my marketing and branding business and with the podcast and the blog – I’ve somehow managed to ignore what I think will probably be one of the most important and urgent assignments from God for me – to speak wisdom, love and truth into the kids.

Working with my client and seeing how relentless she was to make this event happen today because of her mission to carry out God’s assignment really made me want to share that with you … and hopefully inspire you to not forget or ignore your assignment from God for your life.

god's assignment for you

So, what is it? Have you already shared it with me? Have you ever thought about what it is? We have several assignments from God, but what is that ONE that HE wants to use you for to impact the world? What are you letting get in the way of not getting done? Relationships? Social life? Married life? Motherhood? Work? That bomb salary and paid vacation? I hope not. I shared this on Facebook about letting that job get in the way of your assignment:

Today I’m blogging about God promising you way more than a matched 401k, a $100,000 salary and a week’s vacation to Hawaii. You have to learn to not get comfortable with that raise or promotion or the paid vacations, and you have to really figure out what’s going to make YOU happy and how you can impact the world with your own business. You have amazing ideas. You have opinions that matter. And what you have to offer the world will make a difference. You have to believe that and be convicted of it. You deserve an abundant life. Don’t get too comfortable and too proud of yourself. Know that you could be making 10x the amount you’re making now doing something that comes from your heart. And you could be making 10x the impact on people who could benefit from your gifts. So don’t forget to work on your own business while you’re working for someone else. God gave YOU an assignment. Don’t ignore it.

Signed,

The Girl Who’s Working on Her Assignment from God with The Go and Glow Project.

I just felt compelled to share that during working hours with my personal friends and family because a lot of them may sit at work and scroll Facebook, bored, wishing they didn’t have to do that meaningless job. And a lot of them may have amazing, purposeful, good-paying jobs but just not purposeful for what they want to do from their own hearts. So, I’m sharing the status with you with the intention to get you to think about your assignment and be aware of what you’re here to do on this Earth. And beg you to realize how urgent it is to start on it … NOW!

Podcast Episode 014: Branding Your Blog with Siedah Mitchum

Hey Glowers,

In this episode I interview Siedah Mitchum, website design guru, coach and fellow podcaster. She shares really important gems about why having a clean website can add to your business and why branding your blog attracts more leads. She also opens up about what it felt like to leave her job and ramp up her part-time business to full-time.

I love interviewing courageous, creative, entreprenerial women like Siedah because she proves that you can have a business that is creative and thrive in it. Siedah now hosts The Freedom Biz Podcast where she also interviews other creatives and entrepreneurs, so head on over to her website to take a listen.

And thanks for subscribing to my iTunes account as well as my #GoandGlowTV channel on Youtube. Also, if you haven’t yet already – don’t forget to subscribe to my newsletter on my blog to get more life and business hacks straight to your mailbox.

How to Profit from Your Passion

Hey GLOWERS!

I know you’ve been working hard since my last post, but I just wanted to pop back in to see how things have been going from a creative and marketing standpoint? Have you been taking action with those brilliant ideas you have? Have you been doing 1 or 2 things for your business everyday? I hope so. In my head I like to imagine that you have been on the phone closing deals, getting mentored and crafting creative ideas for your business! That’s way more fun! But I know that the reality may be that life can sometimes get in the way and several people may have told you ‘no’ and no one has time to sit down and mentor you (except me!) and you’ve run out of creative ideas to brand and market yourself and/or your business.

Well, if that latter scenario somewhat describes your life, or if you have a girlfriend who’s been experiencing those slumps in her business and in her life – I want to invite you to my FREE virtual workshop called Idea to Income: The Art of Profiting From Your Passion tonight March 24th at 9pm EST/8pm CST.

 

idea to income webinar
As you may remember, in January, myself and Courtney Sanders of Think and Grow Chick, hosted a live workshop here in Atlanta called Launch Your Life and we received so many positive reviews and very meaningful feedback about the curriculum and the activities. And we also got tons of emails from women around the country – and in the UK – asking us to come to their city or country with the Launch Your Life workshop. But since it took quite a bit of time putting together that one live workshop –  we realize we don’t have the time to immediately plan to go on tour. Yet, we still want to connect with the women who couldn’t attend the one in Atlanta and we want to give away the information we taught as quickly as possible because we understand that there are some businesses on the line and there are some women with amazing ideas who need to get started implementing those ideas like YESTERDAY!

So, we’ve decided to host this webinar and add a few new strategies and help you and more women profit from your passion! If you weren’t able to attend the live event and you don’t even know where to start with your business, please join our webinar party and have some fun learning and masterminding with us!  Click here to register for FREE now.

We even tried to accomodate you by not scheduling it during Scandal or Empire! We get some cool points for that at least, right? 😉

The Idea to Income Webinar is TOTALLY FREE! You just need to sign up by clicking this link, as I won’t be sending out the replay to my newsletter list; only to those who signed up for it.

If you want to learn strategies to brand and market yourself and your business, or if you’re already doing a great job and just want to do a check-off list of what you could be doing differently, OR if you want to give some tips to the other women who will be attending the webinar (we’ll have a chat box for questions and comments that we’ll answer live) please join us! We love teaching just as much as we love learning! Plus, we have some Millennial women like you who will attend to network with other powerful women your age and who wants to make some new friends. We’ll have some social media interaction and that’s always cool because you can connect with like-minded women and see what everyone is up to with their platforms.

So, click here if you’re interested. If not, no worries. I’ll be creating other resources for you to use really soon!

I hope you have an amazing rest of the week and I’ll be in touch soon!

Go and Glow!

Podcast Episode 013: My Mirror and Me with Madison Sampson

Hey Glowers!

This is a very special episode of Go and Glow! As part of the new Go and Glow Kids & Teens program that I’m launching, I’m bringing younger girls and teens onto the platform to share their entrepreneurial and inspirational journeys, and I’m going to be building a community for them to learn about personal development and creative entrepreneurship with courses, workshops and products from the Go and Glow Academy.

So, how exciting is it that my first kidpreneur and guest is a dynamic, 4 year-old author named Madison Sampson who wrote a book called My Mirror and Me: I Can Be Anything I Want to Be! Madison was born prematurely and was in the NICU for 83 days while doctors told her mother, Realtor and Entrepreneur Kye Sampson, that running, jumping and becoming a ballerina would be almost impossible for Madi because of her benign paroxymal veritgo of childhood condition (BPVC). But Madi has defeated all odds and is an energetic, active and creative entrepreneur who teaches other children in her book that they shouldn’t be defined by what other people tell them they can’t do. Vicariously through the princess, astronaut and other characters in My Mirror and Me – Madi shows how children can be anything they want to be if they use their imagination and define themselves by what they make of their reflections in the mirror and through positive self-esteem. She hopes to empower kids to believe in themselves and to not let society put limitations on them. Amazing, right!?

My Mirror and Me: I Can Be Anything I Want to Be can be purchased on Amazon here and will officially launch on March 21, 2015, which also happens to be 2 days after her 5th birthday! Madison is having a book signing in Sugarland, TX at the Brilliant Sky Toys and Books Store on the same day as the launch from 2-3pm.

You can follow the book and the My Mirror and Me organization on Facebook, Instagram and on their website.

To learn more about kids and teens like Madison or to listen to adult female entrepreneurs share their stories, subscribe to my Go and Glow! with Natasha Cole podcast on iTunes or for my newsletter on my blog at www.GoandGlowProject.com. And to book me for a marketing, branding or website design consultation for your business, email me at Natasha@GoandGlowProject.com.

Until the next episode,

Go and Glow!

Happy International Women’s Day!

Hey Glowers!

I just wanted to celebrate you and your awesomeness today! Today, March 8th, is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future. While there are still many inequities for women in a male-driven society, we have come so far and we’ve created amazing pathways of businesses, brands, education and alliances for our daughters to follow in our footsteps and continue our legacy of greatness.

So, I hope you did something today to honor your accomplishments and the accomplishments of our fellow peers, our mothers and grandmothers, our ancestors, and those who we don’t know personally – but who we know to be powerful, successful trailblazers. Because without these women, we wouldn’t be able to walk in our greatness and we wouldn’t have this very special and important day that honors all of us.

I wish you happiness, prosperity and purposeful living today and always, WOMAN!

Go and Glow!
