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.

Behold. A twist out in @hautekinkyhair 4c kinky curly hair. Kinky curly extensions are always high maintenance but once you learn how to manipulate them as you first install them, they’ll be the most low maintenance, easiest, best investment you’ve ever made yet for protective styling.

Stay tuned for a my IGTV video on how I did achieved this.

STOP asking creatives to create for free.
STOP asking creatives to create for product.
STOP asking creatives to create for bartered services.
STOP asking creatives to create for discounted rates.
STOP asking creatives to create for wasted time.
STOP asking creatives to create for late payments.

Respect the energy it takes to create ANYTHING.
We are the not the same creatives from over 10 years ago. We use expensive equipment, valuable time, and considerable thought into making things that make ppl’s experiences feel better at high-quality. If it were simple, you’d do it yourself. If you could make an audience move the way we do, you’d move them yourself. So respect the process.
Pay the invoices.
On time.
In full price.
With no excuses.
Or...simply, move on.

That energy. All 2020, my baby ✨

Still surprised how much stretch marks are a taboo. If it weren’t for how much ppl praised me for my first collab with @savagexfenty I’d be totally left out in the dark.

I spoke to a fellow photographer in a casual setting. He said he loved a photo I took a few months ago. But “that” [my stretch marks] would be alllll retouched off top.

A lot of ppl messaged me about how “courageous” it was not to edit the pics. I felt that extremely strange how far we go to come off perfect in an already imperfect world. Light makeup is the farthest I’d go.

All in all I’m grateful that I’m too lazy to give a f*ck and I’m grateful for another opportunity to collab with a fave from a fave @savagexfenty x @badgalriri and the confidence #savagex brings to the table ❤️ #savagexfenty #savagexirl

Body insecurity, pt2. Let’s continue to talk about it.

What frustrates me most about my weight gain, is making a comment to my friends who brush me off like they don’t notice and then boom. I’m looking at a picture of myself at a party 3months later looking huger than I’ve ever been because I decided to ignore my 1st mind. It was an actual reality check to get me out of denial and the final step was validation from my peers.

Who else has fallen victim to this?

Sometimes you just have to get up and handle yourself w/o waiting on the validation from your friends and then some. Coming from that place, I’ve allowed myself to slack most of 2019 and that’s okay.

Where I’d normally look myself in disgust and immediately head to the gym only to abruptly stop weeks later, I’ve decided to do the opposite. I’ve admired every extra pound, curve, and roll, when I look in the mirror. I’ve accepted my flaws and while deciding to still work on them, I don’t do it out of self-hate, but with encouragement for long-term goals such as health that radiates inside out. This allows me to workout CONSISTENTLY, one of 2020’s key words for the decade.

This is why I’ve decided to partner with Detroit Area @planetfitness in the #BeTheBestYou challenge. This is to admire all your shortcomings, grow into the person you want to be healthily inside AND out. When you’re not working out for vanity purposes, but being your healthiest self, you’ll regularly find yourself more apt to get your workout in.

Because PF is in line with showing up as the best version of yourself for 2020, I’ve partnered with them to offer a giveaway for a FREE.99 6month Black Card Membership at any of their 50 Detroit Metro Area locations.

The PF Black Card membership allows exclusive access to the PF Black Card Spa featuring HydroMassage, tanning beds, massage chairs & more!  You’ll also get use of any location nationwide and free quest privileges, in addition to random perks such as 20% off at Reebok.com and worldwide travel deals!

To enter, all you have to do is follow myself and Detroit Area @planetfitness and post and tag this picture in your stories with hashtag #BeTheBestYou. NO PRIVATE PAGES.

Body insecurity, pt2. Let’s continue...

You say bathrobe, I say causal wrap dress. Let’s not get caught up in details.

You say bathrobe, I say...

Body insecurity, let’s talk about it.

I’ve fallen off from training in the gym for about 8 months. I’ve seen severe weight changes and once you get on the other side of 25, things don’t just fall back into place like if you decide to forgo eating unhealthily for a few days like they used to. 
My metabolism has slowed down. I’m seeing weight distribute to places I didn’t even know they could, like what the hell is that over there? And yes, I now have rolls. Something I wouldn’t even thought twice I’d see for another ten years. Reality has sunk in hard and having severe anxiety and depression hasn’t helped me with getting out of the bed and hopping on the treadmill either. 
That’s why I’m so pleased to be partnering with Detroit Area @planetfitness who’s committed to helping US commit to OUR long term goals of being the best US we can be all 2020. This is opportunity was too perfect for me to pass up if I wanted to overcome my depression and it’s well known that working out regulatory helps combat depression and anxiety. 
We’re in the perfect season and decade to snap out of our previous limitations and make 2020 our best decade yet. That means working on our minds with therapy, our health with mindful eating habits and regular doctor’s visit, our finances by being fiscally responsible, and of course our bodies by training healthily and regularly. And in doing so, Detroit Area @planetfitness is willing to help us get on track by offering my followers an exclusive offer code to get your FIRST MONTH FREE on any membership, now through 2/29. Simply use one of the codes below when signing up!
WC2020 for your 1st month free on the $10 a month membership OR
BC2020 for your 1st month free on the PF Black Card $22.99 a month membership. 
We all know, we can’t be healthy in one department and lack in another. Our whole personal environment must be copacetic and synchronized with one another. 
It’s simple to join and there shouldn’t be any excuses now as you can join any of the 50 Planet Fitness locations all over Metro Detroit! 
So, see you there?

Fashion says “Me too”, style...

This morning I woke up feeling very in the middle. I binged a few shows and went back to sleep. I woke up again with the intent to cook, clean, and complete all projects I have deadlines on. After I was done cooking, all the energy I had forced me back to bed. These past 2 days, I could barely leave my bed.

I realized that while cooking, I began to feel extremely melancholy. Something about the food I was cooking was making me sad.

What the fuck.

The food was delicious. It was serving. I over ate and still, something about the food I prepared before I was able to consume it, made me feeeeel extremely sad.

What the fuck.

I did the steps. I forced my mind not to go there. Not to instantly seek death. I tried to talk myself out of it. “Nothing caused this sadness, Charlene. This feeling isn’t real, continue on with your day,” I’d tell myself. I listened. It allowed me to push through cooking the rest of the meal.

By the time I was finished, I felt gloomy. And full but dissatisfied. Against my plans, I went to bed.
I laid there. And the tears started flooding. I couldn’t think of why I felt this way. 
What the fuck.

I cried on the phone to my friend for about 2 hours until I fell asleep. I woke up hours later, instantly felt guilty. I hadn’t done anything I planned to do yesterday and today.

What the fuck.

This makes me inquire, is this really how my mind is going to be for the rest of my life? Feeling completely normal 1 minute and then uncontrollably yearning death for no particular reason the next? How does one combat this and why the hell does depression seep in so easily even when trying to remain positive?

Stepping into 2020, I’ve decided to speak positivity into my mind no matter how much I don’t believe it bc my friends made me realize that no matter how much I’ve tried to die, it won’t happen until I fulfill my purpose and with such a negative mindset, I’ll always attract detrimental negative circumstances to my life bc I keep wishing death on myself that never comes.

Being mindful is hard af and requires great intention. Something I’ve always lacked. What things do you all do to get through? How do you plan to be better at it going into 2020?

This morning I woke up...
