As folks get back into grind mode for the new week, it never hurts to take note from one of the best out there! Celebrity Blogger and EntrepreneurNecole Bitchie,   dropped some serious knowledge about the industry via twitter!

Have you ever felt stuck while trying to pursue your dreams? Do you know what is required in order to maintain a successful website? The struggle in building  a brand is real and something that millions can relate to, but it is important to remember that even after you have made it, there are still hurdles to get over! The trick is having the ability to make the right decisions!   Take a look at what Necole decided to share:

I don’t blame bloggers for sticking with blog networks, however, just know you are only getting about 20-25% of the pie. Seriously

— Necole  (@iamnecole) October 21, 2014

If someone is putting a $30k budget into your site for an ad campaign, by the time it goes thru the ad agency & blog network, ur cut $3-5k

— Necole  (@iamnecole) October 21, 2014

To put it in perspective, with a blog network, our revenue was far less than our current revenue, and we don’t even have the connections

— Necole  (@iamnecole) October 21, 2014

And no disrespect to PR companies, but if your expenses to cover their event, outweighs the compensation (if any) that’s hustling backwards

— Necole  (@iamnecole) October 21, 2014

To get ahead in the business, you have to know your worth. Your worth today, is not what it was 3 years ago. Do not devalue yourself

— Necole  (@iamnecole) October 21, 2014

I was selling $500 reskins back in 2008-2009. Today our reskins are 10-15 times that amount depending on the campaign. Why? Because we grew

— Necole  (@iamnecole) October 21, 2014

And with growth becomes higher expenses including Staff salaries, huge server bills, photo licensing fees, and IRS bills.

— Necole  (@iamnecole) October 21, 2014

And friend and family discounts are cute…but they don’t pay your bills. At some point, you have to tell your industry connects –pay up

— Necole  (@iamnecole) October 21, 2014

My apologies for this random stream of consciousness

— Necole  (@iamnecole) October 21, 2014

So many are unaware of how much it really takes build a successful business. Necole is one of the few businesswomen to share this kind of information and these  are definitely words  of wisdom.  To all up and comers: consider every detail! Then Head on over to her site and find out the amazing pointers she learned from Diddy at  Revolt’s RMC Conference last week! It is a must read for budding Entrepreneurs!

When you’re done come back and share your thoughts!

Salute Necole.
