Monetization for content creators and influencers

The Best Influencer Gifts

the spark show Nov 28, 2019

Hey there, welcome to The Spark Show! In this episode, I’m going to be talking about the best influencer gifts for yourself or that you can get someone to give you!

At the time that I’m recording this, tomorrow is Thanksgiving and the day after is Black Friday. So everyone is holiday shopping and instead of getting a bunch of stuff that you don’t need, might as well get stuff that’s useful for your business!

I’m a huge fan of functional gifts. My husband Luke and I don’t really surprise each other with stuff, we usually do a list so we’re never disappointed.

I also usually buy myself the things I need since they’re a business expense, so I like getting things that I’m going to use. 

I did wanna tell you a story about the Apple Watch my husband gave me as a gift. He got one for himself and then loved it so much, he decided to get me one.

The thing is, I’ve never liked wearing watches. When I got my first watch when I...

The Magic of Live Events

the spark show Nov 25, 2019

Welcome to The Spark Show! In this episode, I’ll be covering:

  • Why it’s so important to go to live events
  • What you should consider when choosing which live events to go to 
  • The #1 thing that most successful people do 

We just had our third annual The Spark Summit event here in Los Angeles. We had a VIP Day with an intimate group where we did masterminding for the morning, had lunch then did a photoshoot at Santa Monica Pier/Beach to get content. We also had dinner. Then the next day, we had a day of speakers and more masterminding - everyone had massive breakthroughs, we even had some tears. Then for the last day, we did a photoshoot at 29 Rooms and then ended it on Abbot Kinney in Venice with more photos and we had some sponsors provide us with food and drinks! 

Why it’s so important to go to live events

1) To be around like-minded people

Easy Holiday Content Ideas

the spark show Nov 21, 2019

Welcome to The Spark Show! In this episode, we’ll be covering:

- My top tips on creating holiday content 

- How to get brands to work with you during the holidays

- How to amplify the reach of your holiday content

 Who’s already creating holiday content? Thanksgiving is coming up in a week and Christmas is just five weeks away. 

My first tip is to plan and shoot ahead of time. A lot of companies start creating their holiday content in September. That’s when the press and media start sourcing for their holiday articles and stories. 

The second tip is to repurpose content. I’ve used photos from previous years and so when you’re planning shoots, know that you can repurpose your content and use them over and over again. 

My third tip is to go to places that have holiday themed decorations and lights like malls, buildings with a Christmas tree, museums and plays so you don’t have to create a whole holiday set.

the spark show Nov 14, 2019

Welcome to The Spark Show! In this episode, I’ll be covering the 5 steps to 6 Figure influencer. I’m going to talk about the shifts you have to make to get to your first 6 figures in your influencer business, the revenue opportunities you have as an influencers and the action steps you need to take right now. 

I launched and built a successful 6 figure membership community with over 300 members. I’ve launched courses, group coaching programs and I wanna help you do the same! 

 So first let’s talk about the beliefs you need to have to create a 6 figure influencer business.

  3. You have to believe that success will come (in the beginning, it won’t feel like it)
  4. You have to believe in a mission (to help others and make an impact)

How to Find Your Focus

the spark show Nov 07, 2019


Welcome to The Spark Show! In this episode, I’ll be covering: 

- How to find your focus as an influencer

- What you should be focused on depending on what stage you’re on 

- My top tips to keep your focus when you get distracted

How to find your focus as an influencer:

  1. Know your priorities

When you know what’s important, you will prioritize what you need to do first. This comes with planning and preparation. One thing I like to do is to break down my goals by year, then by quarter, then by month, by week and then by day. 

If you know what the priority is for that day, then you can plan your day and you’re not spending your time figuring out what you’re supposed to be doing. 

  1. Focus on one thing at a time

Multi-tasking is NOT a good thing. Someone somewhere said it was good to do as many things as you can at a time. But what that does is it takes away the focus from the ONE thing that you’re supposed to be...

How to Be Your Own Producer

the spark show Nov 01, 2019

Welcome to The Spark Show! On this episode, I'm sharing some of my favorite tips and tricks for producing your own photoshoot.

I know it can seem like a lot, and sometimes you wonder HOW you'll ever be able to create the beautiful content you see online, but I promise, everyone can do it.

Even if you're just starting out, or doing this on your own, you can be a producer. 

Here are the things you need to consider:


First, you have to think about your concept. Usually I do this around whatever product I am posting about for the campaign. Let's say it's yoga pants. So the concept is me going to a yoga class. With that, I made sure to take a pic of me in the yoga pants, with a sports bra, my yoga mat and my water bottle. 

The concept of a photoshoot is really just the story behind the shoot. A great place to get ideas is Pinterest! You can pin your ideas onto a page (kinda like a mood board) and then you can show that to your photographer (or your...

How to Run Your Business While Traveling

the spark show Oct 28, 2019


Welcome to The Spark Show! In this episode, I’m going to talk about how to run your biz while traveling. I just got back from a month-long trip to Europe where I was in Paris, Southern Spain, and Southern Italy and it wasn’t a vacation. I was working while traveling and let me tell you - it was quite a challenge. I wanna share with you the challenges, what I wish I should have done differently and what I would do the next time that I’m traveling over a longer period of time. 

First of all, let’s just talk about what I mean by traveling and working at the same time. As influencers, we’re content creators so wherever we go, we’re creating content. We’re still showing up every single day on social, on stories, making sure our weekly content goes out. If you have a digital offer, you’re still showing up for that unless you’ve planned it out where you’re not at the time. But in my case, I was still doing weekly...
