The Spark Society: A Community for Digital Influencers

Answering the Question: What Do You Do?

the spark show Oct 11, 2019

Welcome to The Spark Show! In this episode, I’m going to talk about something that happens to me and I’m sure it happens to you too - and that is, what to say when someone asks the question, “What do you do?” 

If you haven’t listened to my last episode yet with my friend, Erika De La Cruz, Episode 37 - definitely do that since I did talk to her about this and ask her what she says when this question comes up. 

If you’re like us and go to a lot of events and meet lots of people, they’re always asking us - what do you do? Especially when they hear things like - we get to travel all the time and have the freedom to work from wherever. 

So there’s a couple things you can say, but the most important thing - like I always say, know your audience. Some people are already familiar with the influencer world and some are not. So you may have to explain it in a different way depending on whom you’re talking to.

How to Avoid Burnout

the spark show Oct 03, 2019

Welcome to The Spark Show! In this episode, I’ll be talking about the ONE thing that every influencer, content creator and entrepreneur experiences - and that is burnout. It’s a real thing, even for people who work a 9-to-5 job and are side-hustling because for most of us, we really love what we do, so we keep going and going, depleting our energy until there is nothing left - then we fall into burnout mode.  

Let’s dive into burnout! It looks different for everybody, but for me - it’s like a total creative block. When I’m burnt out, I don’t feel like doing anything. I don’t feel inspired at all, I’m kinda down with no energy. I’m tired and I just wanna watch a whole season or two or three on Netflix.

It usually happens when I’m working long hours, long days, non-stop, without giving myself a break. It happens a lot when my team and I are launching, setting something up, starting a new project. I usually like to...

How to Pick Your Platform

the spark show Sep 26, 2019

Welcome to The Spark Show! In this episode, I’ll be talking about which platforms you should be on as an influencer. 

Today I wanna talk about platforms! There are SO many out there and people always ask me which ones they should be on, and how many they should be on. It can be quite overwhelming if you’re trying to be everywhere on everything.

So what I like to tell people is to FOCUS on just one primary platform and one secondary platform. Once you get that down, then you can expand and do more. 

For your primary platform, I’m talking about your long form content meaning your blog, podcast or videos. Your blog should be on your own website on your domain that you own so you own that real estate. As far as your podcast, you’ll need to host it somewhere but you can also put it on your blog and have a player for your podcast.

For video, you can have a YouTube channel or Facebook which should also live on your website. So really, your primary...

How to Deal With the Haters Online

the spark show Sep 20, 2019

Welcome to The Spark Show! In this episode, I’ll be going over how to deal with haters, because we all know they’re out there. The more you grow, the more this will happen. It’s inevitable and you can’t please everybody. 

So first let’s talk about FEAR because this is where this comes from, this comes from a fear of judgment. You’re worried about what people are gonna say, how they’re gonna react. It happens to all of us, you are not alone. 

Even the biggest celebrities, personalities out there have experienced a fear of judgment. Especially now in this age of social media where one thing can be retweeted and shared a million times and then it becomes a whole thing.
