Inside the SistaSense Power Circle

The SistaSense Power Circle Two Day TeleSummit was a HUGE success, but you don't have to take my word for it. Watch the video above, to get a sneak peak into the nuggets of GOLD, powerful information that our speakers were sharing.

I know you want the replays. The pre-order rate of $45 has expired, BUT you can use the extended promo code PCR15 to get $15 off! This code will work for the next 30 who use it. As many attendees noted, this package is worth WAY more. After listening to the unbelievable WEALTH of information, 9 sessions, 60 minutes each from 7 business professionals committed to your personal and professional growth ... after listening, attendees could not believe they GOT ALL that wealth for at such a low cost.

Way more important than adding a price tag to this was my GOAL to create a POWERFUL, USEFUL, PRACTICAL, ACCESSIBLE tool to those of you out there who need the guidance, the information, the inspiration, but don't have that power circle around you. Folks tell me to raise my prices ALL THE TIME, but at the end of the day I always want to focus on what works for you. What is realistic and feasible for you. SO this is it! This is for you. This is my power circle.

Power Circle Attendee, Regina Baker had this to say about Our TeleSummit:

After listening to the speakers last night, I understood clearly that it wasn’t a “get this, buy this and do this rally” — they shared the why, how and what, that got them to where they are today, AND each one of them eventually ended their session saying the same thing — about aligning yourself around positive, encouraging, like-minded, going somewhere people!

I can honestly say, in all my 14 years online, never, ever have I heard so much honesty, generosity and truth. These are the type of people I choose to surround myself with – just one of my POWER circles, what’s yours? - Regina Baker

The success of your business depends on the company you keep! When I think about how much my business has grown over the last four years, I attribute a great deal of my success to the powerful, successful, business minded people around me.

Now I am telling you the same thing. I would like to officially invite you to the 1st SistaSense Power Circle: a 2 Day TeleSummit for Web Entrepreneurs from July 29 - July 30 2011.

(video) Social Media Marketing for People Who Don't Get It But Want To

The video above is entitled 'Social Media Marketing for People Who Don't Get It But Want To'.

It seems like everybody wants to get into social media marketing, but very people actually get it. Inspired by my trip to the Black Enterprise Women of Power Summit, I decided to create this video for those in my circle who are interested in social media, want to get into it because its very popular, but don't really understand the value of spaces like twitter, facebook, and youtube.

Documenting my amazing BE trip, I go through the different ways I was able to easily use social media portals as real-time marketing, conversation, business branding, credibility building, client retention, new client attraction spaces. While I know that sounds like a mouthful, this is in a nutshell exactly what you want to do and I'm hoping in this video I can shed light on how you get it done.

To some degree I do get into practical things that I do on social media, which you can do to promote your business and build your personal brand. For a more in depth understanding of how I use social media tools and blogging to build relationships, increase visibility as well as sales online I recommend you download my previous telecourse: SistaSense Circle: How to Increase Your Sales and Visibility Online.

If you are not in my social circle here are a few of my latest "Let's Network Now Activities" ... If you are a brilliant business woman click here and if you want to share your weblinks or words of wisdom click here.

Saving the best for last I want to say that it was truly an honor to not only attend the BE Women of Power Summit, but to have my Google Me video featured in the Black Enterprise Social Media Bootcamp workshop. If you are interested, you can go to the BE Insider Social Network to watch the Social Media Bootcamp Presentation.

This post was created for my other blog: - created to help you make sense of making money online.


Adding Your Business To

Launched in 2011, is an online black business directory. The goal of the National Black Pages is to assist African American business owners in advertising their businesses and websites.

As I mentioned in my previous post, SEO Tips: Submitting Your Site to Niche Directories, adding your website information to online directories that target your audience is an easy way to improve your presence on google and drive traffic back to your website.

One of the women currently taking my Sistas Who Sell 7 Day Challenge, noted that when doing a search for her website the first link to come up was actually not her site, but a directory she was listed on. Directories and sites that are older or more established than your own may often times show up first in search engine queries, which is why you want to make sure even when you are not at the top of the search list you are visible on the sites that come up first. also has a growing collection of articles and videos of interest to black entrepreneurs and business owners online. Be sure to visit the NBP website,

Social Media Money Tips for Women Entrepreneurs + My Just For Today Thing

Right now I have Social Networking / Social Media Marketing ALL Over my brain. While I normally limit myself to only 3 web projects a month, right now I am working on 4 custom ning network projects and 2 wordpress blog projects + redesigning my black parenting + along with maintaining my current 3 ning networks. I am 'work at home' working hard right now!

I just had an amazing radio interview with, Deborah Owens Finance Guru and Host of Wealthy Lifestyle Radio (replay below). Next week I am off to social network at Blogalicous Weekend 2010 and THEN two weeks later I will be speaking about Social Networking Essentials at the Extreme Makeover for the Woman Summit & Benefit.

Some how I've also managed to host a boat load of giveaways this week (see one, two, three), take my son to Toys R Us for Geoffry's 49th birthday party last week (adding pics to my facebook page soon) And in an hour from now we are going to the NC Seafood festival today after a day of fun yesterday! When next month hits, I think you'll have to stick a fork in ME instead of the turkey.

Wealthy Lifestyle Radio with Deborah Owens Audio Replay:

LaShanda Henry Talks about Why some internet entrepreneurs don't make sales because they are either too social (aka passive) or too aggressive with their marketing. (No audio below? Click here.)

Because Social Networking for Women Entrepreneurs is pretty much my thang I recently got my social network, featured in the latest For Dummies Guide - Social Media Marketing All In One! You can see shots of my network, Black Business Women Online and everything! (Pictures Coming Soon ... sorry I type faster than I get my photos and videos up). Anyhoo... I'm so excited about all my new found Social Networking Buzz and Business that I decided to give you some of my Social Media Money and Marketing secrets today!

Fact: When I started working at home full time, my first real goal was to make more than I was working in my 9-5. And now, in the last three months my income is 250% larger than it was when I left my job just a few years ago. Much of that growth I can attribute to using social media platforms like my blog AND building my own social network.
