Introducing: Exclusive Private Mentoring from The Jojotastic School of Social Media! Get exclusive 1:1 access each month to personalized strategy & a holistic approach to increasing your business's reach. After 6 months, you will have the tools needed to confidently create beautiful content, grow your audience, gain brand recognition & increase sales

If you’ve been wondering where I’ve been the last few weeks, I’ve been working behind-the-scenes to build an exciting new addition to The Jojotastic School of Social Media! As of tomorrow at 9 AM PST, I am launching private mentoring for small businesses — and I could not be more excited! Before we dig into the details, click here to sign up for the waitlist. I’m only opening the program to a limited number of spots!

Here’s a quick rundown of the program:

Who is private mentoring for?

The short answer is small business owners! And the long answer: I modeled my entire class offering after a few of the small businesses I’ve helped such as a jewelry maker, local clothing boutique, and winery. I want my social media classes and mentoring sessions to help small businesses with a physical product who are looking to expand into a national audience (Pinterest is huge for this). Also, I’d love to help interior designers who want to build an audience for their designs and inspiration. The Jojotastic School of Social Media is also beneficial for newcomers to the influencer community because I discuss my full workflow and divulge ‘secrets’ on how I’ve run my business successfully for over 10 years.

What is private mentoring?

Each private session is designed to help you grow your brand’s visibility, manage your social media in an easily maintainable way, and connect with new customers. You will receive exclusive, tried-and-true social media strategies and tools that are customized to your specific needs — all with Pinterest-approved methods that have been proven to work. Each mentoring session will thoughtfully challenge you and yield results for your business at your own pace and with specialized guidance from Joanna. 

And the best part? Each session is totally personalized for you! Each session can be an open discussion of social media best practice OR we can create a plan together to determine specific areas of focus for your small business.

Why you should sign up

After 6 months, you will have the tools needed to confidently create beautiful content, grow your audience, gain brand recognition & increase sales — with my support and advice along the way!

Like I said, the private mentoring program launches tomorrow! To find out as soon as it launches, sign up for the waitlist and keep an eye on your email!

Thank you so much for your support in this new venture & I can’t wait to work with some amazing small businesses this year. If you have any questions about my private mentoring program, leave a comment and I’ll answer right away.

How I Styled Our Built-Ins

Tour Our Built-Ins & Learn How to Style Built-In Shelving. Styling and decor tips from a pro, how to style a shelves and curate books and vintage decor. Green built in bookshelves

To me, there is nothing more fun than styling open shelving and built-ins. There is definitely an art form to it, which I talked about a lot in this post from the archives. But now in the cabin, we have a totally different styling to tackle: the built-in shelving in our living room! It’s like a #shelfie but a bigger scale. As soon as we painted it green, I knew it would be the ultimate canvas for me to play with. So today I wanted to have you a cubby-by-cubby tour of it and why I chose the objects that are on display.

Photo Journal: Wandering a Misty Riverbed

There’s something about the quality of light here in the North Cascades that has really intrigued me. Ever since we moved here, I’ve found myself paying closer attention to it, almost like a third roommate. It’s just so… different from city life. I mean, pretty much everything is. From our crappy wifi to our collection of generators, we are definitely living a different life now. But when it comes to the changing light out here, each moment feels unique and special. Here are some photos from a recent creek adventure with the dogs and the fog.

Photo Journal: The Beginning of My New Creative Journey

Photo Journal: Happy Creek in the North Cascades, nature photography of snowy mountains and winter scenes

I don’t know if this is totally apparent here on the blog and my social channels, but lately I have felt like I’m on the cusp of expanding my creative potential. Maybe it’s because I now live in a place with fewer distractions. Or perhaps having more space means that I finally have room to create. Or maybe my creative potential feels different now that I am surrounded by so much of nature’s splendor. Whatever the reason, I have been doing a lot of mental work to dig deeper, creatively speaking.

Before we even launched The Jojotastic School of Social Media, we did a TON of research and brainstorming about how to make each lesson as meat and valuable as possible for small business owners. As a small biz owner myself, I understand how important it is for each dollar invested in the business to multiple and grow it. Because of this, we spent a lot of time considering the needs of makers such as artists, illustrators, ceramicists, woodworkers, jewelry makers, Etsy shop owners and more. The classes are actually designed with my friend Silver + Salt in mind. We have chatted at length about ways she can use social media to increase her sales and expand her customer base… and it’s working!
