In less than a year, she went from 0 followers to 45K—completely organically.

Podcast Quotes:

  • “I started monetizing way before I hit 15,000. At 800 followers, I was making less than $1,000 a month. And then around 1600 followers, I hit my first 10K month. And then at 15,000, I was making around 16,000 a month. And that was pretty consistent throughout.” (8:29 | Kar)

  • “It's about creating work that I love to do that serves other people and provides for my family in a way that I would never be able to do if I was in corporate or working for somebody else. So that's how I kind of base my projects.” (13:06 | Kar)

  • “Anyone can grow organically on social media with the right strategy.” (15:46 | Kar)

  • “Organic marketing to me or organic social is really just about being you, but finding really unique ways to tell universal stories.” (17:03 | Kar)

  • “Find somebody, either a business manager or a VA, that can help you early on to automate things so that you can take home more of that profit.” (19:49 | Kar)

  • “Consistency. If this was a job, like a corporate job that I was an employee of, you get up every day, you go on the train, you go to that office, you deal with it. You get the job done, and then you leave and you do it every single day. And so that's exactly how I treat my business. It's not optional. It's every single day.” (23:40 | Kar)

  • “Block time off on your calendar to market your own business. When you are a service provider, your calendar is full of appointments for other people. You need to make time for yourself to move your own business.” (25:31 | Kar)
