Ok, I need to let you know how this happened. The truth is that I don't know where I found out about Natalie, a.k.a. the "Mogul Mom", but somehow I stumbled onto one of her videos.

When I saw the video, I said to myself - man, I need to check this girl out a little more.

Why? Because she seemed SO genuine. So, I followed the trail, checked her out in a number of places and was SO IMPRESSED with who she is and what she has been able to accomplish, while being a wife, mom, model, blogger AND entrepreneur.

And you guys thought I was crazy (in a good way of course)? This girl takes things to the next level!

In fact, after working online for ONLY 3 MONTHS, she ended up quitting her job so that she could be at home taking care of her daughter - I love it!

Ok, I know I know. You're probably wondering what the video I saw was about, and how it lead me down this trail of getting her on the show. To satisfy your curiosity, here it is:

How can you NOT be instantly captivated? I know I was.

So, I connected with her and grabbed her on this interview, and she overdelivered (as my guests normally do).

Natalie is known for helping people use social media to get themselves and their ideas out there and in front of the world. Here are some of the things Natalie Covers in this interview:

  • What the term Mogul Mom means
  • How she got into social media/blogging
  • How to use Social Media (especially Facebook) to grow your blog
  • "My Story" marketing and how that can help maximize your success
  • How to not Waste Time on social media
  • Answers to questions from the community
  • She even offers me a little bit of parenting advice, which my ears are ALWAYS open for ;)

All in all, there was a TON of value offered in this interview. My recommendation - Sit back, relax, grab a cup of tea (or whatever else you drink when you're relaxing) and listen in, undisturbed.

Then, once you're finished, make sure to leave me a comment below with your thoughts :)

That's all for now, until next time - Take Care and God Bless

    GREAT podcast! I am going to be emailed Natalie for that checklist. I can see where that would be helpful. I spend a lot of (probably pointless) time on Facebook, and I justify it by telling myself I'm networking and trying to make relationships, but really... we all know better than that. TONS of great info here Leslie!

    • http://www.becomeablogger.com/ Leslie Samuel

      @happyfoodholly Ahh yes, thanks for mentioning that. I will add that to the resources in the show notes so that people can see that easily.
       
      Glad you enjoyed it Holly!

    i love that she said everyone should have a focus and an ideal group of people that they identify with and would like to work with. And i agree with what she said about "drive by posters" they're so annoying.
     
    question. when you have switched over your personal facebook page to become a business page .... meaning that your friends have been converted to likes, and you no longer have a personal page because of this conversion... is it ok to create a new personal page? like, is that allowed? Cause i cant do groups and stuff anymore... and i have no more home page with a news feed or anything.

    • http://www.becomeablogger.com/ Leslie Samuel

      @Rochelle Hanson I can't say for certain, because I've never done that, but you should be able to. The problem (I think) is that your page won't be linked to your personal profile. The way I prefer to do it is have a profile, and then create page under that profile. That's how I created my Become A Blogger and Interactive Biology pages. Then I can manage all my pages from within my personal Facebook account.
       
      Is it possible to switch back to a personal profile and then create a page separately? If so, that's what I would do.

      • http://www.thesinglestatus.com/ Rochelle Hanson

        @Leslie Samuel Yes it's possible to switch back.. but i the reason i don't want to switch back is the same reason i switched in the first place. I had too many friends on my personal page and was using my personal page like a business page. And honestly i was enjoying it BUT anytime i wanted to add new friends i had to delete old ones because i had run out of room for friends on my personal page and that was sooo annoying... plus when facebook went public all of my personal stuff from all the way back in 2007 since i first joined facebook was on there, and i don't like that facebook decided to make messages public on the personal pages... so that all the personal inbox message i had since 2007 were now on the wall as comments. So i was glad for the fresh start and i like the new page except for the way i can't connect as well anymore... I'm gonna try just making a new personal page cause there is a way to make that personal page an admin.. you can make anyone an admin of your page really... so that part should be ok... i just wasn't sure if i was ALLOWED to have two pages... like I was worried that it might be against some kind of fine print facebook code or something... I dunno.... i just don't wanna break any rules and get kicked off of facebook by mistake, you know?

      • http://www.thesinglestatus.com/ Rochelle Hanson

        @Leslie Samuel oh my mercy. it worked!! I just made a personal page and then logged in as my business page and gave my personal permission to be an admin :) NOW I HAVE A HOME PAGE AGAIN!!! AND I CAN VIEW UPDATES AGAIN IN THE NEWS FEED!!! YAAAAYYYY :D So all i have to do is manually add my personal close friends back on this new personal, which is great. I kept all my thousands of public friends as likes and started fresh with a new personal page. so happy. this is the best of both worlds!! :D

        • http://www.becomeablogger.com/ Leslie Samuel

          @Rochelle Hanson Awesome stuff. Well now I know for the next time someone asks me that question :)
           
          I'll be waiting for my friend request ;)

        • http://www.thesinglestatus.com/ Rochelle Hanson

          @Leslie Samuel I'm trying to find people right now and i'm STRUGGLING!! LOL :D I don't wanna invite my whole email inbox cause then i'll wind up in the same hot mess with too many friends lol!! I'll message you my page url and you can add me maybe? OK let's try :)

    I've been very strict with my twitter and facebook account to make sure that I only conect with people related to my industry. It means I make better connections rather than a random group of people following me on twitter or adding me to facebook

      @Lewis Saka That's definitely one way to do it. I use FB for mostly personal reasons (connecting with friends and family), but also use it now for business stuff via my FB Pages. The key is finding what works for you, and it sounds like you've done that.
