Social Media Branding & Basketball | A Course

Last week we launched a free web course on how to properly brand your young student athletes on social media.

Touching on topics like:

*Social Media


*What pages to follow (& which ones not to follow)

*How to get your young athlete in position to be on someone’s radar.

*Which content is more/less useful for certain social media platforms.

If you have a student athlete in this crazy age of social media, I strongly suggest that you check this USEFUL information out so that you can properly implement these tips in getting the right eyes on your youth athlete.

The course is designed to share tips and information on how families, coaches and organizations can use social media and branding for student athletes. Information in this course can be used across various sports.

What prompted this course, is the desire to share what I have learned as we navigate my younger son’s recruiting process. Eight years ago I created an IG and Twitter account for him, to simple chronicle his basketball journey. Now, I see the value in making that decision and how it’s been a big part in his recruiting journey.

Whether you are a student athlete, a family member, a coach, or a youth sports organizer this information will be of benefit to you.

Enroll today in Social Media, Branding & Basketball. This course is free for the month of February.


Evolving Takes Werk Podcast | You Have Everything That You Need

On this episode of the Evolving Takes Werk Podcast we’ll discuss that decluttering project from our previous episode and how after clearing the clutter we found what we needed to make a repair in our home. 

We’ll also touch on what to do with the things we find as we declutter. Should we trash it, give it away or keep it? Though only keep it if it sparks joy. 

Also in this episode, I’ll share how Steel Cut Oats by Better Oats became important to my life after suffering from a stoke and my experience during the pandemic of creating an eBook. 

Let’s get to werk!!!!

World Stroke Day

Today is World Stroke Day. I’m grateful for so many things. 

I’m grateful for the fast thinking of two amazing women.

I’m grateful for knowing myself well enough to know that I was in a crisis. 

I’m grateful for an amazing medical staff that took excellent care of me. 

I’m grateful for an amazing village. 

After the diagnosis it was a lot of therapy, a lot of medication, a lot of naps and a lot of prayer. 

I’d encourage you to:

❤️ Know your numbers.

❤️ Get your annual physicals.

❤️ Listen to your body when things seem different than normal.

❤️ Stress less.

❤️ Practice self-care.

Resiliency & Gratitude

I have come to find that my writings tell a story. It is one of resiliency and gratitude. For a while I thought my writings were not connected. I’ve written poetry, fiction, a journal and a non-fiction book. Honestly, I thought “My collection is random and it doesn’t make sense.” Then one day I was on ClubHouse and the moderator, Teresa Hairston, told me that my writings tell the story of my resiliency.

Not only had I never considered that idea, I never would have on my own.

Today I got on Canva and created this video. In days to come I will expound on each book and tell why I wrote it and how I created it.
