Share a specific time you encountered an obstacle and describe how you overcame it.

The biggest challenge I faced along the way was overcoming the fear of the unknown, and standing on my own two feet to support my children on my own outside of a guaranteed salary. Success was my goal, and with many obstacles I faced, I still continued to stay on track building both companies with a positive mind set. Once I put my plan in place, everything else followed. Gratitude and prayer were both a huge influence and practice in my life, leading to my success.

Share a short story about your best (or favorite) case study.

My favorite case study has been with an outdoors fishing company called Kodiak Lodge located in Alaska. Social Media had tried in the past, but did not get any results. Your Social Media Experts does in-house graphics and Ad Management for Kodiak Lodge.

Within approximately 6 to 8 months from the start, Kodiak Lodge was booked solid for two years straight, their engagement is an all time high excelling from the year of 2021 to presently 2022 by 982% 1,858,547 for Facebook Page reach, up by 409.9% 273,344 for Instagram Reach, Facebook Page visits up by 428%, Instagram profile visits up by 85.1%, Paid reach up by 1,789,314 689.3% and Paid impressions 4,881,652 up by 1k%.

They offer fishing trips, including lodging, fresh seafood and so much more. Kodiak Lodge chose our Ad Spend Management Program. We continue to provide a successful journey with Kodiak Lodge and keep them booked yearly.

What advice would you give the “20-Year-Old-You” who’s eager to start in life?

It is all about you and your dreams. Focus, and start early on your success. If you begin young, you can retire early. Keep your head in the game at all times, and do not let anyone try and stop the future of your success. Get an education in what you desire, and follow your heart living life full of love. If you start as a leader, you will finish as the leader. The World is your Oyster. Don’t let it slip away.

I always remember a famous Henry Ford quote, “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t – you’re right,” which emphasizes how much attitude determines success or failure. Although I have failed along the way, and or life has failed me, I knew I could, so I did. Here is to your future success!

Please describe a monumental time in your life that you’ll never forget.

A monumental time in my life was when I became closer to God, and realized he is all I needed all along. It was life changing and I will never forget it! Secondly, having my two beautiful children, Baylie and Xavier.

A work monumental time in my life is having the honor to work with Celebrities, and one of my favorite clients is Puddle of Mudd, Wes Scantlin, Managed by Blake Scantlin who hired Your Social Media Experts and 5 Star Web Design.
