Ella Mae – Instagram Strategist & Business Mentor

Ella Mae

Episode 35

Ella Mae is an Instagram Strategist & Business Mentor. She started her career as a copywriter but always had an interest in growing her personal Instagram following. Sometimes the biggest things in life aren’t planned, and this was one of them. By successfully growing her own account it was the catalyst that opened a floodgate of opportunities to mentor other entrepreneurs on the methods to grow their Instagram and use the platform to connect with their mentors, peers & potential clients.

Back then she unknowingly uncovered what is now the signature InstaFame Formula
, a 6 step formula that, when applied to any Instagram account, whether it be an individual account, business account, dog’s account or a theme page has been shown to create consistent growth and more importantly, monetization of the page – even though all those pesky algorithm changes! Using this formula with her clients it was only 6 months until Instagram marketing became the forefront of her business and something she’s incredibly passionate about teaching.

One of the reasons she loves teaching the fundamentals of Instagram is the ability to use the platform to enhance any area of your life – whether it’s getting clients, connecting with your mentors or getting paid to use the products & services you already buy & love. It really is such a game-changer when it comes to creating the life you love! She primarily spends her days teaching personal brands and businesses how to connect with new people on Instagram and turn their account into a lead generation machine, and anytime she’s not doing that she’s with her family, swimming in the ocean, hanging out with her horse or breaking a sweat running some trails!

Maki Moussavi – Transformation Coach, Speaker & Author

Maki Moussavi

Episode 33

A former corporate career professional, Maki Moussavi grew up in midwestern small-town America, a first-generation citizen born to immigrants. Her early life was filled with messages of hard work, chasing the dream, getting the degrees, and making the money. After creating the “success” that she’d been taught to value, she found herself questioning how the hell she ended up feeling stuck, restless and unfulfilled. An avid consumer of self-help, she found that the literature available, while helpful in the pursuit of personal betterment, didn’t quite get her to where she needed to be. She discovered the key to deep and rapid transformation is a willingness to do the uncomfortable self-examination and commit to raising the bar of expectation in pursuit of thriving rather than surviving.

Episode Covers:

  • Discussed the book release of “The High Achiever’s Guide: Transform Your Success Mindset and Begin the Quest to Fulfillment”
  • High achievers have a one-dimensional view of success that leads to low expectations for the other areas of their lives
  • Outdated programming and an autopilot mode of operation keeps high achievers stuck/unfulfilled
  • It can be overwhelming to know where to begin, so Maki can give advice on how to begin the process of making change
  • Freebie download called the “The To Don’t List”
