#OWSchat is back! Let’s Talk Location Independence, Shall We?

#OWSchat from One Woman Shop

You may have noticed a theme this month here at OWS — in fact, we sure hope you’ve noticed a theme, because we’ve been all about location independence and living the digital nomad lifestyle since July kicked off.

So what better way to bring it to a close than an hour-long Twitter chat about the challenges, the fears, the must-dos, and more? Join us Wednesday, July 27 at 9pm EST over on Twitter with the hashtag #OWSchat to do just that!

Whether you’re fully immersed in the digital nomad lifestyle, you’re thinking about it, or you simply love taking advantage of your location independence close to home, this chat’s for you.

Looking forward to chatting Wednesday, 7/27 at 9pm EST!

October #OWSchat: Diminishing Distractions

#OWSchat from One Woman Shop

We’re a little nervous to admit this, but here it is: we’re sick of talking about productivity. (A bit strange coming from the creators of an e-course about productivity, huh?)

Here’s the thing: while we love making the most of productivity hacks as much as the next person, sometimes we want to stop talking about the benefits of this project management software or that social media management tool and just get shit done. But it’s not always that simple. There are distractions — both in your business and outside of your business — that keep you from being the engaged, efficient, kick-ass business owners you are (or want to be). Let’s talk about those.

That’s precisely what we’re doing. Mark your calendars! Today at 9pm EST, we’re hosting our monthly #OWSchat — and it’s all about identifying + combatting the distractions that hold us back.

The comparison trap. Family. Social media. We’re talking about these and the other (inevitable) distractions that come up, and sharing strategies for making distractions less of a burden on your day, so you can fully own your freedom.

See you TONIGHT, Wednesday, 10/7 at 9pm EST in the Twitterverse!

How To: Embed a Tweet on Your Blog or Website

Welcome to our How Tos, where we provide you with specific step-by-step instructions for common business questions. Have a tutorial you would like to see us provide? Let us know!

You know when you get a tweet that absolutely makes your (rainy) day and you want to be sure that as many people as possible see it so they know how awesome you are…but they’re not all on Twitter?

Enter: embedded tweets.

We talked all about social proof in our webinar on personal branding– embedded tweets are a great way to drive home the message that your clients, customers, and followers have positive things to say about you.

Social Media Examiner has some other cool ways to make use of embedded tweets: to back up an argument or statement you’re making on your blog, embed conversations about your services or products (for example, we might embed the search “#onewomanshop”), or get buzz going for an event you’re organizing.

Here’s how to easily embed tweets on your blog or website:
