TODAY our littlest celebrates another year around the sun... my outgoing, fun-spirited, funny, witty, and sweet girl is six. This photo captures her so much... hair down, not a care, loosely holding on, but choosing the front over the back anytime! Always up for an adventure! Ashtyn Gene, you make us laugh with your quick witted remarks and long words that are used out of context. You love animals, especially cats, dogs, and sea turtles... snorkeling, traveling, your dolls, painting, Fuller House, Roblox, Coneyard Vines tee-shirts, dancing, ice cream, PB M&Ms, Doritos, and giving mommy and daddy hugs. You also love your sleep. When you started sleeping 10 hours at night when only two months old I knew you were my girl ❤️ Happy Birthday Ashy. 🎈Mommy, Daddy and Sissy love you bunches. Now to get back to the Exumas so we can get on the boat and go see our sea turtle friends... 🐢 ☀️ 🌊
👏🏼 Read that again... ONLY GOD SETS THE LIMITS. #youdoyou
Happy Fathers Day @bradkorn ❤️ these girls look up to you so much ... not because you tower over them in height but because you’re full of love for them. Every card game you play, soccer ball you kick, and walk you take them on ... doesn’t go unnoticed. Thank you for being the best dad for these girls. ❤️ Video in stories! 😘 . . . #girldad #coacheskids #fathersday2020 #familyfirstalways #fatherdaughter
Reflecting on my journey... 🌴🌴🌴 3 years ago I was scared shitless to jumpstart my branding business. I was charging clients less than $5 a month to receive weekly emails with brand help.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And I was worried about overcharging!!😖⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Fast forward to today and I not only sell digital products based on my own Stay in Your Lane Brand Method... but I work 1:1 with clients to bring their business idea to life and coming soon I'll be pouring into our (new!) Social Note Community.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I have taken every training session I could with Kristin Korn and the value is worth its weight in gold. After going step by step through her digital products, I have now been able to create my own offers! The best part, getting SALES while I sleep! - Jennifer Burkhart @jenniferbglow⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Watching students like Jennifer now earn $300 digital course sales in their sleep is still pinch-me, is this happening... moments for me.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But... I didn't go through 20 years of learning how to build my own online business to NOT empower others and teach them how to do it too!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌴 There's room at the top of the tallest palm tree for all of us!
As you know I’m a huge advocate for helping women leverage their influence to monetize their brand. So much so that I created a 4-step roadmap called the Stay in Your Lane Brand Method to help them do just that. I do believe it’s smart to diversify your streams of income. I’m NEVER putting all your eggs in one basket. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So the question becomes... What digital product could I sell? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I got you girl... you sell your knowledge. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And don't even start with I don't know anything that's unique. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As I discuss in this week's Branding Bites Podcast Episode 35 ... Your layers and layers of pivots, life cycles, lessons, and experiences are waiting to be shared and the solution to someone’s problems right now. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And the #1 Secret To Choosing what kind of Digital Product To Sell simply becomes… to ALWAYS sell to a niche that you’re passionate about. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🎙 Listen to Branding Bites Podcast Episode 35 now on iTunes or online: kristinkornblog.com/episode35 and let me dig into the details of this! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Who's gonna book a complimentary 15-min Brand Discovery Call with me next??? I’d be honored to help you leverage your brand influence to empower others. #behindmybrand . . . . . #girlbossinspo #entrepreneuradvice #herglobal #personalgrowthtips #everythingisfigureoutable #personalgrowthanddevelopment #girlbossesunite #solopreneurlife #smallbusinesshelp #9tothrive #womenwithvision #thisgirlmeansbusiness #fempreneurs #creativepreneurs #sheconquers #girlbosstips #sheeo #staybossyladies #bossbabesquad #girlsinbusiness #sidehustler #entrepreneurships #smallbizsquad #entrepreneurher #sheboss #sheconquers #smallbiztips #stayinyourlanebrand @stayinyourlanebrand
Coaching moves aren't as simple as Twitter makes them sound. Brad Korn announced as the new head Men's Basketball Coach at Southeast Missouri State University.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To then seeing hundreds of interviews, new recruits, assistant hires, and photos of him at his 'new' school.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But the life that gets dismissed is what's going on in the home of those coaches... the families that are dealing with NEW and OLD.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Selling homes.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Buying homes.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Leaving kids' schools.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Deciding on new schools.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Leaving athletic personnel.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Meeting new athletic personnel.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Leaving a community you knew well.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Building friendships with a community you know nothing about.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Leaving friends behind.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Trying to find places to meet new ones.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Eateries, car washes, doctors, salons, parks, kids activities, so many things to FIND!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ All while trying to keep your shit together and not lose your damn mind in the middle of a pandemic because we all miss our old friends and surroundings.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🍷 Seriously... there's not enough wineries in Southern Missouri for me to visit that helps with coping with all the transitions that have happened over the last two months.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But WE DID IT.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And one gal that came into my life when God knew I needed a quick-win in the friend department is this girl... New to the #coacheswife life but nonetheless eager to learn the ropes.🥰⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We bleed red and black and support our husband's story... but we also love building upon our own. ❤️🏀🖤⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Both introverts we sure can get deep in conversation in seconds flat.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So cheers to NEW BEGINNINGS and quick-wins. As they should all be celebrated the same.🙌🏻
Keep sharing! 🤗 Every time I hop on a discovery call with a possible new client I love digging into their story and who they are. And every time I find nuggets that can help so many other people that they’ve been sweeping under the rug all this time.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Not every part of your story needs to be monetized but YES! most of it should be.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Your influence is worth something more than a stack full of personal lessons and possible heartaches.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Q.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I guess I am still not seeing how putting a digital product out there will reach anyone if no one is there now.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We don’t wait for a network to show up before sharing. We build one with our consistent message. And when shared God brings the people into your life who needs to hear it most. ❤️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Share it!!! 🙌🏻
I always say ... if I can just IMPACT one person every day I’m living out my purpose.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A recent message from a podcast listener had me in tears 😭...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Kristin I just listened to episode 31 where you spoke about pivoting and I know you don’t need to hear anything from me since you don’t even know me, but I just wanted to say that you handled the subject with sensitivity and grace but also the real emotions you felt. I have so much respect for you and the way you approached the subject. Youve had so many changes recently in your life and I admire your tenacity, courage, and faith to follow God’s will in your life. I will continue to follow you in your journey and I pray you are finding community in your new home. I can only imagine how hard that is right now with this crazy time we are living in.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ladies... 🛑 stop holding back.

Everybody's got a blank page A story they're writing today A wall that they're climbing You can carry the past on your shoulders Or you can start over Regrets, no matter what you've gone through Jesus, He gave it all to save you He carried the cross on His shoulders So you can start over ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ See, His love is deeper than the ocean floor Run to His arms like an open door God the Father sent the Son So men can come and be free and ain't gotta run no more (that's what He said) Come to me, all who are weary; with heavy burdens, I'll give you rest Separated you from your sin, as far as the east is from the west (He said) Thrown in the sea of forgetfulness What sin? What offense? And when them waves come crashing in, I'll calm the winds in your defense (that's what He said) So, whatever it is that you've done He put that punishment on His Son You'll never come under His condemnation conquer sin and Satan, and his accusations So, dry your eyes, lift up your head Hallelujah! God is not dead! Plus He gave us His peace, and He took our guilt on the cross instead Took our place and now we embrace A clean slate with the eyes of faith We know unfailing love, unfailing love, it's not too late, start over ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Every day I play the Hillsong Worship Station whether in my office or in my bathroom getting ready. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But today... this song stopped me in my tracks. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I feel the lyrics can be applied to so many right now. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💕So whatever is heavy on your heart today, remember... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You can carry the past on your shoulders Or you can start over ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Whether you have regrets with: your marriage, your business, your behavior, your children, your friendships, your health, your past, your choices... (fill in yours) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Today you get to write a new ending. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Start Over by @flame314 and @nfrealmusic
You are not alone. 😔It’s all heavy… do this, say that, post this image, this hashtag, no not that one… this one. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Wow… can we all just take a second… lift our heads from social media, take a deep breath, and pray. “Am I doing enough?” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It is a question I think many are feeling. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I know I am. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Taking a day to pause is exactly what many need. Not only is this world chaos. So is social media. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And not in a healthy way.😔 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Everyone processes things differently. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And after scrolling IG for hours more than usual I finally came across a line on Twitter I can get behind. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Activism isn’t a one method fits all, activism is a body.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ YES!!! So much yes… just like there’s no one way to run a business - there’s no ONE way to grow activism... it’s a body! Maybe your lane is… ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✨Protesting on the streets ✨Organizing petitions ✨Counseling ✨Art Activism ✨1:1 Conversations ✨Voting ✨Educating yourself and others ✨Calling Legislators ✨Protecting Lives ✨Spiritual Guidance ✨Using Social media to create public awareness campaigns ✨Donating or Raising Money ✨Engaging in Community Service ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Above all… I believe we need to use our purpose, choose our lane, and occupy it where it makes the most sense for us. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Not where someone says we need to be. DO NOT feel guilt or shame for NOT occupying every lane. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For every lane makes a difference. And one is not more legitimate than the next. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ All I know is my heart is heavy. I can go from angry to sad to proud all in 10-seconds flat… but above all, I’m saddened by the shame I’m seeing on social media. It’s wrong. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’ve come to these conclusions… ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1. Leading anti-racism work is not my work to lead. I should feel no pressure or shame for this. It’s not my lane. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2. My lane is to BE THE BRIDGE to help educate myself and others… Share information, resources, and stories that I find effective, VOTE, and continue to USE MY SKILLS to empower women of every color/race to use their influence to monetize their brand. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⤴ THAT is my lane, what's yours?
Business builders, If you have to start a direct message with vague questions like “Hey, how’s your day going?” or “Is this a good time for you?”... you are cold targeting. 👎🏼⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For instance... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We’ve all been approached in the mall by a seller asking, “Hey, how’s it going?” in an enthusiastic pitch.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Usually, we walk by these people without a second thought.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We know the greeting is just a way for them to bridge to the sales pitch.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s fake interest and it feels a little slimy. Right?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So even though it’s a harmless, polite question ...you are wasting your time and theirs.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In this short clip, I share what to do INSTEAD of these cold reach outs. 👏🏼⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For the full video visit... kristinkornblog.com/episode32
Outraged? You better believe it. Will sharing quotes and cute images on social media fix our nation’s racism problem... no. So what can I do to help? Where can my voice be heard? What do I need to say? Who do I need to say it to? Since I’m an observer and thinker I’ve taken the last few days to process like I always do. So ...Just because you see people silent ... don’t jump to the conclusion they don’t care - it’s often those people who love the hardest and will fight the loudest. Just sayin’ 😚 So as I turn to our own family with children I got to thinking ... “Why is racism not in our home when it’s spoken in others?” And I immediately think of what language my husband and myself use and then is overheard and learned by our children. In our home: We know no color. We see no color. We SPEAK no color. We are all people of God. When I heard our daughter last year refer to a boy in her class as “the boy with the longer braids”.... I’m pretty sure my heart dropped ❤️ with pride. She didn’t need to use color to describe him. She’s never used the color of someone’s skin to refer to anyone. She either speaks their name, or their hair color, their parents name, or their jersey #. 🏀 Yes college basketball has blessed our family with diversity but this behavior is taught in our homes. It starts with us adults. If we want to see change we must practice it. I am not perfect. You are not perfect. But I do my best and we can all do better. So here’s my voice ...and how I believe one small change to ours can help make a big impact. Love everyone. Respect all. Divide none. Prayers for healing and change. 💕 #icantbreathe #humanrace #endracism #prayerchangesthings #prayfortheworld
