Raw Milk

Raw Milk is Beth Kirby's Instagram filter-free podcast for creative entrepreneurs where she gets raw, real, and sometimes ridiculous about what it really takes to build a life and business you love, live slow, travel more, make an impact, and make money while you do it.

Running A Multiple Six-Figure Business From Your Phone – with Sara Tasker

 

There are introverts, there are extroverts, and then there are webtroverts—those of us who embody our most comfortable selves on the internet. For Sara Tasker, the web has allowed her to control her anxieties, develop relationships, and establish a thriving business that she can run from her phone in bed, with or without pants. 

Sara is a writer-photographer turned social media coach and host of the Hashtag Authentic podcast. She left her day job with the NHS three years ago to turn her internet passion into a business.

Today her work revolves around helping other creatives tell their own stories online.

Sara recently won Content of the Year in the Cosmopolitan Influencer Awards and earned runner-up honors for Natwest’s Creative Entrepreneur of the Year Award. Her work has appeared in The Guardian, Buzzfeed, and Mother & Baby, among many other publications.

Today, Sara joins me to explain her initial interest in Instagram as a creative outlet and how it evolved to become a multiple six-figure coaching business. We discuss the misconceptions about what it means to be a social media influencer, and she shares a brilliant way to reframe the common fear around succeeding in a saturated market. Sara offers her advice on marketing your business through a mailing list and building a social media following in today’s online climate. Listen in for real talk on overcoming the guilt of making money and learn the value in viewing your business as an entity separate from yourself.
