🌟Oh my! Did you know it is #socialmediaday?!? 🌟⠀

No doubt there are a LOT of mixed emotions about social media particularly right now. In light of what is going on in the world, I thought it would be important to share 3 reasons why I believe the world NEEDS social media:⠀

1) CULTURAL CHANGE: Important changes are happening in the world because collectively as humans, we are leveraging social media to breakdown traditional barriers by publically engaging in conversations about important topics such as #metoo, Black Lives Matter and #pride.⠀

2) CONFIDENCE WITH TECH = STIMULATING, FULFILLING CAREERS: Over the past 5 years, @TechPixies has been able to help hundreds, yes HUNDREDS, of women return to work, change careers, or start a business by leveraging the power of social media. We've also used social media to enhance our free training programmes, which more than 2000 women have engaged in over the past 15 months.⠀

3) FINANCIAL INDEPENDENCE FOR WOMEN: Social Media advertising allows businesses to scale from small 4 figure businesses to impactful 6 and 7 figure businesses helping the owners of those businesses, many of whom are women, to become financially independent - including myself. ⠀

👀There is no doubt that improvements need to be made to social media to prevent fake news and those who wield the power need to take their responsibility seriously and work towards a better system. That said, I still think there is more good than evil in the world as a result of social media and that is why I will continue to encourage women to learn how to leverage it in order to make the world a better place for themselves and those they love.🌟⠀

🌟 It's all go here at @TechPixies. Lots of exciting news to share with you and we think you are going to really like it.⠀

So this is Sophie and she is a TechPixie. She completed the Social Media Course in November 2018 following a career break, having experienced mental ill-health.⠀

The TechPixies course gave Sophie the passion and desire to start up on her own as a Freelance Social Media Consultant and founded @sociallysophieb. She works with small businesses on their social media marketing and delivers workshops in London.⠀

Sophie has worked with TechPixies as our Social Media Magic Face to Face Facilitator and now our Online Social Media Coach. She has now taken on the role of Instagram Social Media Manager and Curriculum Manager for TechPixies and we are super excited.⠀

Prior to her finding TechPixies, Sophie was a Social Work Team Manager and managed services and teams in London.⠀

One thing we know is that she is passionate about supporting women to feel empowered. ⠀
She loves reading and doing all things Social Media and Marketing. She has a love for photography and the creative world and everything to do with dogs. Her work buddy is @amberthecav_repawter 🐶 and together they spread a lot of joy and happiness through their therapeutic work and the occasional Kings Road Fashion Show! Amber is now part of the #TechPixiesPets of which there are many.⠀

We love to see women learn, develop and sparkle in all aspects of their personal and professional lives. We love to support them find and use their voice and we are thrilled that Sophie has become part of our Social Media Team.⠀

🙌 So here's a high five to Sophie, we look forward to seeing what she has up her sleeve! And no it isn't a rabbit 🐇. Although she is a bit of a magician when it comes to Instagram!⠀

When I wanted to set up a membership for TechPixies, I decided to learn from the foremost expert in memberships, Stu McLaren (@stumclaren). Stu introduced me to Amy Porterfield (@amyporterfield) who taught me how to build, market and sell an online course and the rest is history!

When you want to do something you have never done before, you can slog it out on your own or you can learn from someone who has been where you want to be.

As I watch women go through our programmes and close their CV gap when it comes to tech, starting with social media, it is incredible to watch their journey unfold. As their confidence returns, as they find their voice, as their future path emerges it truly is something special to behold.

The head band I am wearing was a surprise that arrived from Stu’s team as a thank you for being part of his tribe. It was so fun to receive!

I thought it was ironic that I was wearing my @rapha T-shirt from the Women’s 100 ride a couple of years ago. RIDE TOGETHER it says... and so it should be. Don’t try and do difficult things alone, find your tribe, lean into them and you will thrive!

Oh and by the way... our membership PROGRESSION is thriving! We kept is simple with 2x 1 hour coaching calls per month and our alumni are loving it. One of the best decisions I made and both Amy and Stu helped me make it!

If you are an alum... you’ve got til the 26th June to join before doors close again. See link in the alumni FB group.

🌟We are so excited and so so proud.⠀

Our Cohort 20 ladies have just completed the Social Media Magic Programme and we wanted you to share in this moment and celebrate 🙌 with them.⠀

They delved deep into each Social Media Platform, put their learning into action, completed Life Coaching Sessions, learned from each other, supported each other, and all through a Pandemic. So amazing.⠀

At TechPixies we believe in holistic training which means we teach digital skills in tandem with mindset training. We believe it is so important to look after self whilst learning and taking new steps in life.⠀

So here are some of the fabulous women celebrating their huge achievement. We couldn't be more proud and we feel so blessed and honoured that they chose to take this journey with us and that it has been so successful for them on so many levels.⠀

🥂So raise a glass, do a celebratory dance 💃🏽for them as we are, let them know how amazing you think they are, celebrate this massive #win 🙌 for them all and wish them well in this new chapter in their lives.⠀

Fantabulous! ⠀

I 💕 surprises!! As we wrap up cohort 20, little surprises have been arriving at my 🚪 like this one from the amazing Julie Garner.

While on the course, I have seen Julie flourish with regards to her tech skills and her personal confidence in them.

When lockdown hit and her two brick and mortar shops were shut down to the public she didn’t skip a beat creating an online shop, something she never would have done before doing TechPixies. You can find her on Instagram at @galleryclothingwroxhambarns and @everythingoutdooruk.

I have loved getting to know Julie and we’ve even leaned on her to get our FAB gift boxes ready for cohort 21.

Thank you for the doormat!! In many ways, it is a reminder to all TechPixies that you are no longer a doormat! You have amazing skills and no one can walk all over you anymore.

So often we encourage our children to follow their dreams but why do we stop following ours?

I am on homeschooling duty today and decided that we’d head to Port Meadow to sketch the herons and horses.

It made me think about my hopes and dreams as a child. Asher wants to be an artist, architect, actor, footballer or a cricketer.

I wanted to be a missionary, an art teacher, a prima ballerina, President of the United States, mother, wife... but never did I ever think I would be an online entrepreneur or an online course creator!
Less than 6% of women in the UK run their own business. I sometimes pinch myself that I run mine!

What did you want to be as a child? What do you want to be now? Or what have you become that didn’t expect to become?
