#InfluenceHour - Build an Influential Brand


Yes, you can do this. You can build an influential brand that gets you seen and is both memorable and authentic. 


I have this friend, Kirsten. She’s hilarious, affable, organized, great at copywriting and she gets business DONE. She’s what I like to call an Email and Blogging Guru, although she likes to call herself a nerd. She creates good in the world and encourages others to grow and do even more. 

She has an influential brand, Sweet Tea LLC.


Kirsten and I met through Instagram. It was brand love at first sight. Haha! We loved each other's’ brands instantly and quickly connected. She invited me to be a guest on her BlogFuel Podcast (you can listen to the episode here)  and as we were chatting we realized we needed to team up somehow.


Here’s where you come in.


Building an influential brand is more than just pretty graphics. Hopefully you’ve heard that before and if not, that means you need to read more of my blog posts. 

<insert wink here>

Building an influential brand is about lifting others up, producing more good in the world, encouraging, inspiring, supporting and ultimately learning from one another.

Kirsten and I have the same heart for solopreneurs, dreamers and doers, goalgetters, etc… we want people from all genres to cultivate and build a brand that matters. We want to help you develop and grow your business beyond what you even think it could be! So, we decided to create a community where this could happen.



Introducing #InfluenceHour

A twice-monthly Twitter chat dedicated to helping you connect, learn, grow and encourage other solopreneuers.

Kirsten and I will be hosting the chat and providing our expertise where we can. We want this to be real, raw and honest. This chat is created to encourage and uplift each other and ultimately BE THE GOOD, because we want to build influential brands that make a difference in the world.



Here’s how you build an influential brand:

get involved in a community and learn from others.


We’re creating an encouraging community to engage with others in a sharing and learning environment on Twitter. If you’ve never participated in a Twitter chat before, click here to read Kirsten’s blog all about how Twitter chats work.

I’ll be honest with you, Twitter Chats are new to me too! When Kirsten first asked me to partner with her for this Twitter chat, I was ALL IN! And then I asked her, "what's a Twitter chat and how does it work?" haha!


Here's how #INFLUENCEHOUR works:

#InfluenceHour will be co-hosted by myself and Kirsten on a rotating schedule, and will happen twice each month. We have 3 main goals for this Twitter chat:

  1. To showcase the raw truth of running an online business
  2. To help inspire, encourage and motivate your brand
  3. To create a positive community that ultimately helps you build a positive, world changing, influential brand.

#InfluenceHour seeks to show you that you are not alone. You have a cheerleading squad ready and willing to shake their pom-poms and boost your spirits.
