I honestly feel like the second you try to level up in your business, there’s a new obstacle or challenge you have to face that’s bigger and scarier than the last one. As if the powers-that-be decided they were going to Truman Show the crap out of you for their entertainment.

I can’t prove that AT ALL but some things are far too coincidental to not be perceived as some kind of divine meddling!

Last week I spent the weekend at my Dad’s, and as always we talk for HOURS about business. Well, actually he does more of the talking and I do more of the coffee consuming – he makes a KILLER coffee!

He’s been an entrepreneur since he was 16 and is FAR more obsessed with stats, numbers and strategies than I am. To give you a little background, over the past 5 years he’s built a property care company up from the ground,

When I was looking to start my blog on WordPress in Jan 2016, I knew the theme was going to make or break the entire situation.

I scoured the interwebs for hours trying to find the perfect theme that would jump out at me. There were HUNDREDS of gorgeous designs. Some that I almost clicked the ‘buy now’ button on! But I made sure to keep in mind exactly what I was looking for in a theme and not rest until I found ‘the one’

Today, you are going to learn all about how my life got flipped turned upside down… sorry, couldn’t resist!  😂What I was meant to say is that you’re gonna learn how to create your very own wordpress blog today!

A little back story: I’m quite embarrassed to admit that I didn’t think of this until I entered the 5th month of running this blog. I realized that some of you reading House of Brazen are completely new to the blogging world and don’t know the first thing about starting your own blog,

I’m sure you’ve heard through the grapevine by now, but just in case you haven’t, you can use affiliate links on Pinterest again! Can I get a woop woop!!!!

Pinterest banned the use of affiliate links back in 2015, which was pretty heartbreaking for some bloggers because they were making 90% of their income from the platform. Yikes. But there’s no need to cry over spilled milk any longer because IT’S BACK BABY!

Webinars are huge now. Well actually, they’ve been around for a while. But it’s only in the last couple of years that they’ve finally gotten to a point where they’re not cringingly tacky anymore.

What I means is that they’re all about giving insane value to the viewers rather than it being a rags-to-riches story with a minuscule drop of value and then an irritatingly drawn-out pitchfest like they used to be.

As I’m looking at the next steps in growing my business,

I used to be a fashion blogger. And as you may know, 99.9% of fashion bloggers use instagram to connect with and grow their audiences.

But not me, oh no.

I hustled hard, yes. But I didn’t gain the kind of traction I was hoping for. And truth be told, I contribute the lack of growth to the fact that I didn’t really believe in or utilize the power of instagram.

Over the past 5 years I have used affiliate networks throughout the many changing businesses I’ve experimented with. The top three niches I dabbled in were lifestyle & DIY, personal development and bridal gowns – yes really!

Affiliate networks were how I made my first few dollars online. I can remember the first cheque I ever received in the mail for $169 dollars. I felt like a pro. I was officially a big girl.
