Milestone: Marketing – featured on Oh So Beautiful Paper
Member: Emily of Emily Rose Ink
Accomplished: July 13th, 2017
We want to celebrate the achievements of our mastermind members. The story below is Emily’s experience achieving a major milestone within her business.
I was approached by a contributor to Oh So Beautiful Paper about doing a calligraphy feature. I organized a photo shoot with my intern, Leah, to take some pictures of newer portfolio items, especially focusing on calligraphy. It also forced me to sit down and write about my inspiration and process, which I hadn’t done for a while, and I felt really proud of how I was able to articulate why I do what I do and where I gain inspiration.
What did you learn during the process?
That I should have more confidence when it comes to PR and marketing opportunities. I’ve been saying for years that I want a feature on this blog, and I just hadn’t taken the time to put together a post to submit.
As soon as I articulated that goal to my assistant, literally the next day, the contributor emailed me asking if I was interested!
It was an amazing moment of karma. It also sparked a lot of ideas for future features and forced me to update my portfolio pictures and to put my mission and inspiration into words, which I hadn’t done in a while. It allowed me to also update some copy on my website (bonus!)
What advice would you give to someone else trying to accomplish the same Milestone?
Bloggers are always looking for new content, so don’t be afraid to put yourself out there and reach out to them. Even articulating the goal verbally can sometimes make room in the world for that goal to happen; if you really want something, even if it seems like a reach, say it out loud – you’ll be surprised what might happen as a result!don't be afraid to put yourself out there - @emilyroseink Click To Tweet
