From Personal Brands to Planet-Preserving Innovations: Where Heart Meets Digital 🌟🌱🤳
It’s time to have a deeper insight into the transformative power of identity and leadership. From the captivating magic of leaders 🔮 and how they impact their brands and businesses to the innovation and joy of ‘Creative Explained’ that turns everyday things into eco-friendly masterpieces. 👨🎨
We’re looking at the essence of genuine storytelling 💕 and how we can harness new tools and tech to simplify our lives with a reminder of the balance between humanity and technology. 👩💻 So, unbox this edition with us and let’s start crafting narratives that resonate and reinvent. 🚀💌
It's a mantra we often hear and for a good reason. In fact, I say it often. In today's digital world, the individual behind a brand often shines brighter than the brand itself. 🚀🌈 Because entrepreneurship is founder-led.
Take a peek at this if you have been wondering if personal brands are worth building: Spanx has 500k followers but Sara Blakely has more than 2 million. And while Tesla revs up its follower count at 18 million followers, Elon Musk is cruising at a whole other level for 116 million.
This isn’t about chasing fame or numbers. It's about recognising the heartbeats behind the logos, the stories behind the stats and the mission that precedes the manufacture. 📖💖
Your personal brand is more than a digital facade; it's a lighthouse, attracting opportunities, nurturing connections, and amplifying influence. So do you want to up-level your business and your impact? Remember, your personal story is your most potent tool. Tell it well and your reputation will walk into a room before you do, allowing for a legacy and resonance that your brand alone can not achieve.
After all, at the end of the day, it's about authenticity, passion, and YOU. Let the world lean in, listen, and follow your journey. 🌟👣

Plenty of my community already guide people on their personal, health and business journeys. I probably don’t need to tell you that coaching is on the rise, and it's officially the 2nd fastest-growing industry globally, according to the wise peoples at PriceWaterhouse Cooper. 📈🌍
And the interesting thing is that most coaches are on the mature side of the spectrum, up to age 60. 🧓👩🦳 Makes sense, if coaching is about life experiences, wisdom, empathy, and those super-important leadership skills. On the academic front, coaches are pretty well-educated with over 60% holding master's degrees! 🎓 And, let's not forget about the moolah 💸 85% earn $150/hr or more!
But what's the coaching buzz all about?
With companies pouring funds into employee training and people eager to stay ahead in their careers, it's a sweet spot for coaches. But never forget the 3 largest niches for business development are:
And while you're at it, remember to shine online! 40% of coaches have their own websites, proving the digital game's significance. 🌐 So, if you are dreaming of being a coach. What you need to know is that the right audience is out there, waiting for your unique touch and perspective. 🌟🤗 But you got to be in it to win it. And get your name in the game!

I know that people are freaked out by AI - and I want to see how we can normalise some of it, rather than thinking we are headed towards I-Robot and the end of the world🤖. Let’s look at some practical uses that industry leaders and CEOs are using AI for to expedite businesses and brands 💁🏽♀️.
Picture this: massive project bids that once took ages are now breezily handled, thanks to AI. LendLease have been doing this so well, they have a tool that analyses past bids (the wins and the 'better luck next time') to create their larger proposals and offers. And get this—it's doing the bulk of the work, around 70-80% of it! 🚀🏠
Food companies are using AI to sift through heaps of data 🧮 and whisper the perfect offers at the PERFECT times online - we’ve been subject to this for years, with pizza ads showing on a Friday night - now it’s just been reframed! 🕰️✨
And for the shopaholics among us (guilty as charged! 🛍️😂), 'Buy Now, Pay Later' companies are going all Sherlock with AI—predicting our next splurge👏🏼, assessing if we've been good or a tad bit cheeky, and even stepping up with on-the-spot customer chats.
How are you thinking of adding a dash of AI magic to your brand journey? And where can you add a little simplification to your life with AI?🛠
Have you ever wondered how the big content creators keep their audience glued? 📣 Well yes, it’s videos and content - but if you were wondering what tool they use, let me introduce you to the magic of Submagic, the amazing tool that's making video captions pop! 🪅
With natural language processing, Submagic crafts accurate captions in 48 languages. 🌍✍️ And that's not all! You can jazz up your videos with the latest templates, and even sprinkle in some expressive auto emojis 🤩, highlight those crucial keywords, and let the AI whip up catchy descriptions and trending #hashtags.👩💻
From legends like MrBeast, and Alex Hormozu, to Iman Ghadzi 🌟some of the top creators are riding this wave. It's more than just captions; it's about empowering your voice and being seen and heard to break digital barriers.
This is the simplest way to amplify every story, and every message to redefine content creation and give you back more time and ease 🚀🎉
There's a brand that's been inspiring me with ingenious ideas: 🍃 Creative Explained. If you haven't come across his magic yet, you're in for a treat! 💫🌱 He is sooo captivating and creative and has 6m followers who clearly love him too. 💚 The official “Don’t Throw it Out” book is a wonderful insight into how every little thing around us can be turned into something amazing, with a touch of creativity and a lot of love for the environment.🌏
What I love about Armen - the founder - is his dedication to upcycling everyday items and encouraging his followers to care for both people and our planet. 🌍❤️ Just a glimpse into their trove of epic tips: Did you know that oatmeal isn’t just your breakfast hero? It’s also a saviour for your plants! 🌱 Or how about turning discarded orange peels into a vitamin-packed treat for your hair? 🍊💁 And let's not forget that little roll of paper we toss out; turns out, it can be upcycled into a bio-degradable plant pot! 🌱🎉
