Over the summer, I have been working on numerous projects. One area I want to work more in is innovation and support for new entrepreneurs. I have designed this first freebie which is a journal prompt and from the program Fearless Flow which has three modules, to help a new entrepreneur or an entrepreneur get back into their flow. Here is the link on Teachable and is composed of three modules: Respectful You, Relevant You, & Relational You, https://besup.teachable.com/ Yes if you have worked with Indigenous Methodologies your seeing all your favourite words applied to business now. As someone who has worked in Indigenous Methodologies, this is a course that is much about self, community, and the entrepreneur journey.
This uniquely designed entrepreneur program has been designed using a design that brings out your personal best, in a way that shifts and supports success.
A huge motivator for me in developing this program was based on my vulnerabilities and moving past the barriers of underemployment.
There is so much to be said about getting grounded.
What does this mean for you?
What and how do you become grounded?
Groundedness is about connectedness.
Connectedness is about so many things.
Its about a recognizing the roles we play. The relationships we have. The work we do. The ones we love. The ones we care for. The relationships we have to water, to Land, to each other.
Groundedness is about that recognition of the important things in life that give us hope, and a desire to share ourselves with one another.
Groundedness is setting a foundation and a base.
Setting a basic routine for that self care that includes getting grounded can be a good beginning for your business.
Having a clear mindset can help us to prioritize our needs, and wants.
Once we get grounded, in our own ways, whether through prayer, and intention of taking care of our spiritual needs and those relationships.
Something I have been thinking about lately, and working into the course I am developing is Listed in Me.Inc. one of my summer reads, listed are the following necessities. While there are 7 according to the writer, focussing on one area would be a good way to begin. Groundedness can happen when we focus on one area, naturally this expands into the others.

Da Costa writes:
I started to take my Instagram account seriously in the beginning of 2016, after I realized that people were making money from it. I developed a content strategy and began carefully curating my content, trading in the selfies and oversimplified emoji captions for highly visual and professional images that involved travel, lifestyle, and design, as well as captions that focused on storytelling. Visual cohesion and a compelling tone of voice are extremely important when it comes to creating a successful Instagram account.
I built my personal brand by positioning myself as a marketing and brand strategist, photographer, and graphic designer. As my Instagram grew, I began to get inquiries via email and Direct Message from companies who found me through the platform or my blog and were interested in my work. Clients also found me through my use of hashtags, geotags, user recommendations, the Explore page, comments on similar user’s pages, and interaction with their content.
