Goal Setting With Soul (This really works!)

Goals, Lifestyle
by: Kel Amstutz

I'm a Mom. 

People who don't have children think they know what it is like to have them. But, frankly, they don't know. 

 
My life is about hard work. It is about sacrifice. My life is about living my life to make an impact.  My life is about standing for something.  My life is about taking care of my girls all day long. My life is about serving others and escaping here and there for "me time". 


 
 
Setting goals in your life should about be done with both your mind and your soul...together...as one





As I sit here, typing, with my kiddos running rampant upstairs, my dishes are in the sink still, my laundry is piled up high in the laundry baskets and hampers, but here I am, spending a good part of this raining day snuggling with my kids, watching Tangled for the one millionth time. I spent hours on the couch this morning, enjoying the last few days of summer we have left. 

I am beyond blessed.  

 

But, I stay up late at night typing, working, creating videos for you all... 

Why?  

Well, I have these hopes and dreams of giving other women what I have. I miss sleep at night thinking that you too, can have a free and fulfilling life.  

  • A life where you can be home. 
  • A life where you can spend time with loved ones. 
  • A life where the work you do doesn't even feel like work because it lights up your heart...fulfilling your need for a challenge, for fun, but it still a serious business or career.


What are your goals? 


People, life does not go on forever.  

We know this! 





  • So, How are you living?
  • How are you showing up in your kids' lives? 
  • How are you impacting the lives of those around you?




 
Nope! I can't wait to be done with school in two weeks and then off to my dream job! Haters approval not needed! I have found something I love to do! It makes me happy to see I'm such an inspiration to all my haters :):

What is Content Marketing and Why Does it Pay?

Branding, Content Marketing

by: Kel Amstutz


Content Marketing is one of those really popular words right now. 

Businesses and brands want to use the Internet, blogs, social networks or any kind of media to bring in new customers, clients, prospects, etc. 

So, let's check out this term and look at a high level overview for examples!


 Content Marketing Brings in Website Traffic


Content marketing and strategy is very important because in order for you to drive traffic to your website, reveal your message and your offering, you have to be able to generate and entertain an audience of people who are coming to YOU for information.  The best way to do this, right now, is through Natural Content.

Content really connects people on a whole other level unlike ads, banners and PPC.  Why?  Well, because, typically people are more interested in consuming content rather than consuming ads.   


What is Re-purposing Content? 


First, I need to say that I, personally, am a HUGE fan of re-purposing content.  What this means is taking a speech that you have done, then transcribing it into a blog post and creating a white paper out of it by adding some case studies into the picture. What we do is take some content and re-purpose it into multiple versions by adding or subtracting different elements. 

Remember this, in order for content to be shared it has to be emotional or have some sort of feeling or emotional factor. 

This helps the content be 'shareable', go viral, and is just more effective. Also, I recommend trying to use storytelling within your content. People love to hear and read stories more than just facts and figures. 


Content Marketing is Really a Continuous Cycle


It is honestly about getting found online, getting shared and getting conversions. 


At the end of the day, we need to create content that people want to consume. Think of yourself, your blog, your website or the website of your clients to be content hubs for gaining traffic. Not promotional messages but rather subtle branding and a lot of focus on converting traffic into subscribers and fans. 




There is your simple formula.
