Happy Monday!

Last week I introduced you to B-School — Marie Forleo’s 8-week online marketing program that has helped thousands of entrepreneurs create profitable businesses they love, including myself.

This is the ONLY program I support because it made a difference when I started my business. There is a lot of confusing information out there about how to build a successful business, and B-School does an excellent job breaking this process down into simple, actionable steps.

In last week’s free video, Marie shared the Six Pillars to building a highly profitable business online, insight into the major changes in marketing coming in the next 5-10 years and tips concerning what you must know and understand in order to take full advantage of B-School. If you missed it, make sure to check it out here.

This week, Marie is sharing her own “dirty little secret” to making millions and her 13 Keys to Killin’ it online. This video is especially valuable because it is designed to help you take Marie’s insights and put them into action right away!

When I started Pink Olive School, it’s been my mission to help product-based entrepreneurs develop sustainable businesses. Year after year, I stress to my clients that the key to any successful business is not only a great product, but also great marketing. B-School is the perfect resource for you to begin to understand how to become a savvy marketer and have fun!

Here’s to getting out of overwhelm and getting back on track. Check out the video here and let’s make it happen.

And, every year, I encourage my community of creatives (yes, you!) to take a leap of faith and jump on board. Here’s why.
Beyond her incredible track record and, not to mention endorsements from the likes of Oprah and Tony Robbins, Marie provides a clear, step-by-step guide to building a successful business for entrepreneurs at all stages. Product based designers like those in our Pink Olive School community need to be savvy marketers. And, as the world continues to expand into the digital realm, we need to learn to keep up! With Marie’s help, you can begin to understand what that looks like for you and how exactly to execute it … well! Here’s what you can expect from B-School:
  • Learn about the Six Pillars to building a highly profitable business online
  • Explore the major changes happening online over the next 5-10 years that are important to know about now, before these changes happen
  • Identify what you must know, what you must understand and the sequence you should follow to do what you love and get paid for it
Want to learn more about B-School? Marie has released a fantastic online video including 32 minutes of teaching and a very thorough run through of each of the Six Pillars to building a successful business, PLUS a PDF Fun Sheet to help you keep track of inspiring ideas.

#neverstoplearning tip: set intentions for 2017

b40b5a595a33e118094b14f27f546ed7

Happy New Year!

2017 is here, and so is your opportunity to set intentions for the year. What are yours?

A new year can usher in a fresh perspective that is both invigorating and enlightening, but often it can be just plain overwhelming. Where do you begin?

Maybe you want to accomplish something professionally like increasing your social media presence or creating one new design per week. Or, maybe you are seeking personal growth. Reading 20 minutes a day to instill that lifelong learner mentality or writing more letters to loved ones to stay connected. Accomplishing small tangible goals can feel empowering.

What I’ve learned, though, is that sometimes the best intentions are simply determining what you truly believe in. For example, I believe I was put here on earth to spread love through finding beautiful gifts that make people smile. love. gift. smile is my tagline and the premise for essentially everything I do for Pink Olive and OliveBox. When your intention becomes something you believe in, everything you do funnels toward that intention — both personally and professionally.

I encourage you to reflect on what you truly believe in this week and join me over on  Instagram: what are your intentions this year?

#neverstoplearning tip: have fun + boxing day special!

a93225c73df3b5bf7a1d51a4553c13af

Happy Boxing Day!

Sometimes the day to day routine of owning your own business keeps you from remembering the most important part: to have fun! That’s why this week’s #neverstoplearning challenge urges you to relish in both the big and small successes.

It’s easy to remember to celebrate the big successes: an anniversary of a store opening or your first huge order. And, while those are significant milestones not to be ignored, I’ve learned that celebrating the little things is what ultimately reminds me of why I started my business, and more notably makes my job fun!

Whether it’s treating yourself to a delicious donut to recognize a productive meeting, or a quick note to congratulate an employee on a stellar sales day, these are the little ways I like to celebrate our sweetest victories. And you know what else? I like to treat myself to the gift to learning. 

As product entrepreneurs, we are all so passionate about the products we sell. I know how challenging it can be to know how to sell to retail stores and create a brand your customers will love. So today on Boxing Day, I want to you to enjoy the savings and enjoy the Retail Recipes WorkBook + DIY Kit for only $97. Used code: boxingday150. But don’t take it from me, here’s what one of our clients had to say:
“The retail recipes e-workbook is a must read for any creative enterprise. As someone who can spend hours drawing and sewing, I realized that spending time on the business side is just as important, especially when approaching buyers and clients. Grace’s book and critique has taught me so much about creating a cohesive brand and vision. I read a new chapter and it gives me a new goal to work towards.” – Christiana, New York.

Happy learning and have fun!

Who inspires you + Important question for the busy entrepreneur! :)

f169b4bab15dfbf1d020bef1085fe625

Happy Monday!

When it comes to owning your own business, it’s important to find individuals that help instill confidence in you yet also challenge you to think beyond your comfort zone. The intersection between the two is often where the biggest growth occurs, both personally and professionally. For me, I am most inspired professionally by people who strive to be one step ahead of “the game.” Several years ago I went to a Tory Burch Foundation meeting and finally had the opportunity to meet Millard Drexler, CEO of J. Crew. If you recall from this previous post, I wrote a children’s book about him in lieu of the traditional college essay when he was CEO of Gap Inc. When I finally met Millard at the meeting, I heard him speak passionately about “following your instincts and remaining true to your vision.” He noted that in his career taking risks without fear of making mistakes was the biggest avenue to his success within the industry. To me, he is a leading example of people who always remain one step ahead of “the game.”

Hearing Millard speak instilled a sense of confidence in me about following my own passions, yet he challenged me to think “bigger.” We all need those people in our lives. 

My father was one of the first people to do that for me, it’s a story that fully encapsulates my mission. Through my father’s actions, he taught me the power of giving and the impact it can have on someone you love. When we feel loved, we can do anything. The confidence my father instilled in me many years ago still resonates today. His encouragement continues to fuel me, inspiring me to think “bigger,” like opening my 5th store in the beautiful Hudson Valley this Spring :)

Here’s to creating a business you love.
