Influencer Coaching

Coming Early 2019!

By mid-2016, I parted with my job as a Software Engineer and became a full-time blogger and influencer. By this point, I’ve already landed two professional partnerships which paid over $1000 each per month! Before I parted with my job, I was already a brand ambassador for the Detroit Institute of Arts and head Queen Bee (brand ambassador) for Bumble in the city of Detroit. Since my departure from the corporate world, I’ve landed professional, paid partnerships with major brands such as Almay, Grey Goose, La Mer, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, NYX Cosmetics, Neutrogena, and more. I’ve picked up skills such as photography, design, and creative directing which were all things I needed to help grow my brand today. Needless to say, I’ve done quite a lot in just a short time.
This 90-day program is for those looking to invest in themselves and take their brand or product to the next level. During this program, I’ll be there to walk you through the entire progress hand-in-hand, assist in reaching out for professional partnerships, rebranding, and more. We will work very closely together during this period. This is for anyone who is committed and ready to grow. Results will depend on you and your work ethic, but I will be there to ensure you take the tools that I’ve learned to be the successful entrepreneur I am today and instill them in your brand or product.

You're tired of not knowing what to do with your brand to take it to the next level.

You’ve done extensive research but you’re still confused on what to do for your brand. Gaining clarity, growing your following, working with brands, and a few other tasks are difficult for you to handle. You have no idea where to start charging or what to charge for, if your prices are too low, or if they’re unreasonable.

I struggled for a while, hard, and with no help and I had to learn quickly. As I began to learn the things needed to make my career a consistent success, I realized others may want this information packaged and available for them to cross their hurdles faster.

Do you feel overwhelmed when:

  • You’ve just started your business or blog and have no clue where to go

 

  • You want to begin reaching out to brands but don’t know where to start or are afraid to start

 

  • You’re tired of receiving free product in exchange for post and are ready to start charging for your services

 

  • You’re constantly confused about the new Instagram algorithm and need help with growth hacks to get the most engagements and more attention from brands

I know exactly what you’re feeling. I was anxious with no help and had to figure it out all on my own.

In mid-2016, I was let go from my job. Fortunately, I had already started working with a few large brands which were paying me handsomely throughout the year. I was terrified to reach out to other brands because the first two, reached out to me. At least I had the aesthetic, personality, and relatability they were looking for to reach out to me and offer over $1,000 a month each.

After parting with my job, I had to learn to get over my fears and start reaching out to brands, fast. Through this, came plenty of trial and error. I charged too small, then when I raised my prices, my deliverables didn’t quite meet what they needed. I’ve perfected a happy place for working out the collaboration details with brands after many trial and error.

Imagine if you could...

 

  • Begin reaching out to brands confidently because you know what you’re talking about and can negotiate offers with ease

 

  • Are able to create a media kit, rate sheet, and website  professionally that will impress big brands

 

  • Grow your social media following and attract big brands and other major collaborations amongst others

 

  • Increase website traffic with followers willing to pay for your services or product

This is actually something you can do with a little bit of help.

You just need some direction, which is where I step in.

These photos were part of a campaign I was supposed to post a few months ago. My anxiety was so high that I refused to open a simple email and perform a simple task that required a simple change in my caption that caused me to miss out on a few hundred dollars. Most people would say, “Charlie, for a few hundred dollars how you gonna be afraid to open an email??”. When dealing with severe anxiety, it’s not as simple as it seems.

I’ve lost out on quite a few thousand dollars in the past because I was too afraid to open my email and perform yet another “simple task”. Constant back and forth between anyone and myself cause me to cease all communication. I get panic attacks and then I just avoid my email all together for 2 weeks straight no matter who’s emailing me. It’s the most frustrating, idiotic thing I’ve ever had to deal with but that’s my daily struggle.

Some things I’ve done lately to overcome the fear of opening my email app:

1) take a deep breath and get it out of the way first thing in the morning. Some ppl say it’s not a good idea to deal with emails in the morning but I tend to lose out on opportunities waiting until noon or later to check and respond to time sensitive opportunities.

2) remember to continue inhaling and exhaling. I’ve gotten emails that made me so frustrated that weren’t a big deal. All it required were a bit of clarification on my end for their mess ups and a deep breath. For me, it adds another unnecessary level of stress especially when I feel I’ve completed my end and then some. This has happened to me and I forgot to take a deep breath and sent a obvious frustrated email. Luckily the receiver was positive and sympathetic of her mistakes but that could’ve gone left and caused me to miss out on $900. Most important rule: keep breathing.

3) try not to think about it. The more I think about who and the amount of emails, the more I avoid it. It’s best to not think about it and just dive right in and deal. It allows you not to put off due to overthinking it.

It seems unideal to be afraid to open emails but you’d be surprised what anxiety does to you and how many other ppl are going through the same issue. Hope this helps someone.😊

Mental health check in: I’ve been following @dlcanxietysupport for awhile and I’ve been noticing I have some of the symptoms I didn’t realize was anxiety.

This week, I’ve ate four pizzas, had about 4-12 KitKats in one sitting per day up until Saturday, haven’t slept, don’t have a real appetite for food, and feel worrisome/uneasiness in the pit of my stomach. I’m not entirely sure what I have to do to quell these symptoms down, but the first step is acknowledgement. Me a year ago wouldn’t even dare.

What’s your check in looking like?

I’m in this weird space right now where I’m living in two polar opposite worlds running parallel to one another. I’m posting on social media, getting prepared to attend an event for networking purposes, and feeling very indifferent. But on the other hand, having complete meltdowns about the simple yet complex world I’m accustomed to going forth as I deal with my mom and her severe side effects from her most recent stroke. This isn’t anything I’m not used to as she’s had several strokes before, but hearing the doctors say she’s doing great and getting better yet physically watching her look like she’s deteriorating before my very eyes as the left side of her body continues to drag in paralysis is a complete oxymoron for me. For the first time, I bathed my mother today. Last night, I bathed my twin brother. If ever I felt like I’ve had children all my life, this was the moment. I am one no kids having, grown adult children having ass bitch. I’m exhausted. If you see me out in the world looking like a half glammed up zombie, pardon me in advance.

I’m in this weird space...

This pic is one of my 2 favorite glass of wine shots I’ve ever shot. I used my Sony a7ii with 50mm lens 1.8 f/stop to capture this shot. The reason I was able to capture such a blurred background while the glass I’d wine remained sharp and in focus was because I was using a lens with a low f/stop (1.8) which allows for minimal light to come through the lens allowing the subject to be in sharp focus while the background doesn’t get an opportunity to be lit as much thus resulting in a blurred background. 
When I got this prime lens, I made sure to get nothing higher than 1.8 because I’m the bokeh effect (blurred background) queen. I love good a bokeh. I’ve never gotten anything higher than 1.8 but when I transition into my next lens which will be a zoom, I’d have to settle for 2.8 (which still isn’t bad). If you have a camera, what lenses do you own and what’s their f/stop? What do you do to achieve your bokeh effect/blurred background?

I got my new strobe light and have been testing it everywhere ever since. And much like this piece of art by @sheefymcfly, it makes me very, very happy.
