Instagram Blocking and How to Resolve it

If you’ve been blocked by Instagram check out these few tips to help you get unlocked.

Being blocked by Instagram here are some tips on how to fix it

 

How many of you have been ‘banned or blocked’ by Instagram? I know many users encounter this problem — including myself self and it’s so annoying being blocked. So if you’re like me someone who’s been ‘blocked and banned’ from Instagram and need HELP finding resolutions, look no further. Here are some tips and solutions on how to fix and avoid them.

 

 

TEMPORARY BLOCK

I’ve had a temporary block and this is the most common action block implemented by Instagram.  The temporary block usually lasts up to 24 hours. You can RESOLVE it by taking a break from Instagram; don’t post, comment, or like for a couple of days.  When you return back to Instagram make sure to log out, sign back in, and check for any updates on your Instagram application.

 

BLOCK WITH AN EXPIRATION DATE

Another type of action block which is the one I just received from Instagram, which includes an expiration date.  If you follow me on Instagram I’ve shared both of these types of blocks the most recent one blocked me for SEVEN DAYS!  These blocks can last from 24 hours to 30 days!

Regardless of the type of block, if you have NOT done anything wrong I would recommend that you request a manual review from Instagram.  You can do that by going to Instagram Settings ->Help ->Report a Problem

 

Some of the things that can trigger an Instagram block

 

  • Using BOT services
  • The use of BANNED hashtags – I’ve seen my account BLOCKED and BANNED TWICE when I’ve used the Hashtag #Hotsauceinterpreters
  • Posting prohibited content
  • Users reporting your account – I’ve been notified by other users who have received DMs from @RockStarInterpreter @Robintherockstarinterpreter asking them to block and report me 🤦‍♀️ so I’ve been targeted by this user 🤷‍♀️ (be aware of who you follow/unfollow and if you feel someone is just snooping – BLOCK THEM)…and AVOID these childish issues 😉
  • Posting to much – users may report it as SPAM

Tips to fix the Instagram block

 

  1. Reinstall your Instagram application
  2. Report the problem to Instagram (it may take some time to EVEN get a response from them, but it’s worth the shot)
  3. An IP address may be an issue believe it or not our IP address may also be targeted so switch to mobile data
  4. Make sure you linked to your Facebook account this is another way to prove your NOT A BOT!
  5. Wait 24-72 hours before you try to log back in and when you do try logging in from another device

Self-Confidence the CEO Hustler Way

Self-Confidence the CEO Hustler Way

Preparing yourself for success with a positive mindset and help you build your self-confidence, the CEO Hustler Way

Tips to help you prepare yourself for success and help you build the self-confidence you need to start and grow your business.

 

How Confident do You Feel and How Confident do You seem to Others? You see your level of confidence can be felt and shown in many ways.

 

  • Your behavior
  • body language
  • trembling voice
  • what you say and how you say it, etc.

 

Many of us show it because we DON’T BELIEVE IN OURSELVES!

Helping You Boss Up and Rise

You see I learned early on that if I wanted to succeed I needed to believe in myself if I wanted to help and inspire others…So I started to practice!

 

The GOOD NEWS is that Self-Confidence can be learned and built on…So before you start helping others you have to start by helping yourself.

Here are 5 things to ponder...

Low Self-Confidence                                                                  

Staying in your comfort zone.                                              

You fear to take risks.                                                             

Always trying to cover up your mistakes. 

                      

Dismissing compliments                                                       

Fear of failure.                                                             

Being Confident

 

Always going the extra mile

 

Risk-taker regardless of out-come

 

Learns from the mistakes.

 

Accept compliments graciously

 

“Take the bull by the horns”

I’ve always been a “go-getter” but at some point in my life, I felt just like you. 

 

I started to lack self-confidence until realizing that my self-confidence was coming from low self-esteem.

 

Many of us are always trying to seek approval, we always feel that what we are doing is not our best or many times it comes from the way we were raised and our behaviors during our childhood (at least that’s what my therapist told me).

 

Truth is that when I got help from my counselor (AND NO! don’t believe that when you seek a counselor, you’re crazy) I realized that by taking this first step it actually made me stronger.

 

It opened up the doors to fully understand what was happening inside of me but also to realize when this “self-confidence” behavior started.

 

You see when I was young up until the age of 15, I was always participating in singing, modeling, always in front of crowds, always spoke my mind, I was NEVER SHY nor did I feel I was NOT GOOD ENOUGH.

 

However, something happened in my life that changed all of this and I became fearful; I didn’t think I was good enough, hated speaking in front of people, I felt ugly, too skinny, I started to lose confidence and started to have very low self-esteem.

 

Now, this may not be the case with you, but it’s worth a shot looking into this and self-evaluating yourself to see if ANYTHING is holding you back from moving forward.

 

I’m NOT AN EXPERT, COUNSELOR, THERAPIST, but what I am is an Interpreter who works in a variety of settings (counseling, therapy, social work, etc.) and I learn a thing or two about how this works.  I see so many cases and many of them have to do with low self-esteem.

 

So, having said that let me invite you to my Podcast where I talk a little more about this same topic.

COVID-19: Safety and Readiness Tips

COVID-19: Safety and Readiness Tips

Business, Home, Life Disruption tips

In late 2019 many were speculating about a possible economic crisis unbeknownst to many – this coronavirus outbreak would be the cause of a huge global financial crisis and possible recession.

 

In December I started to see a lot more articles, and was hearing more entrepreneurs talking about a “potential crisis”.  However, many were speculating that it could be due to ongoing changes with the new AB5 Calfornia Law, as well as other things.

Now, if you went through the last “economic crash” then you know that this type of information is NOT taken lightly. 

 

You know you will start to prepare just in case there’s a potential impact and a possible scenario.

 

So in December of 2019, I started to share insight information “411” with many of you online to help you prepare – because that’s what I do…I help others!

 

However, many of you said that I was: “taking this out of proportion, fear-mongering, and saying it was a Hoax”…

 

Unfortunately, here we are in 2020 on “locked down, stock market down, a possible recession, people sick, dying, etc”.

Therefore I always say “It’s better to prepare for the worst and pray for the best”, Faviola the CEO Hustler

I hope that now you realize that this was not a LIE!

 

So it’s NEVER too late to prepare!

 

I want to make sure that moving forward you’re prepared and properly positioned for any impact this virus might have on yourself and your business.

 

This includes taking care of you, your family, your business, and prepare for impacts to your business. 

Here’s a copy of my CORONAVIRUS- BE PREPARED ROADMAP to help you prepare with some essential tips for you, your family and business.

It’s time to “Hunker Down” and be vigilant, prepared, and stay healthy and safe!

Sharing 5 major and essential TIPS to HELP the spread of the VIRUS 

 

  1. Wash your hands ALL THE TIME
  2. Don’t sneeze or spread your germs!
  3. Hunker down, don’t leave your house unless IT’S VERY NECESSARY
  4. Clean frequently; disinfect
  5. Avoid touching eyes, face and keep your distance

As an Entrepreneur, we know this is NOT ONLY going to impact us, our family, friends, but also the globe!

 

Yes, this is a global epidemic and we must take it very seriously if we ever want to get back to our normal life!

 

This is a good time to spend doing some of these 5 TIPS…

  1. Self-training
    1. Watch FREE training entrepreneur videos
    2. Listen to a FREE entrepreneur training podcast
    3. Read blogs and get trained
  2. Self-evaluate your skills and see if you can put them to work
    1. Example: I’m bilingual and I’ve been using my language skills to provide onsite interpreting, document translations, and over the phone interpretations.
    2. I’m also a bilingual skilled entrepreneur providing bilingual virtual administrative online services
  3. Time to work on those OVERDUE projects
    1. YouTube channel
    2. Podcast
    3. Blog
    4. Website
    5. Planning and Development, etc
  4. I also DON’T RECOMMEND that you do ANY SPENDING at this time unless it’s absolutely necessary.
  5. Furthermore, STAY POSITIVE, MOTIVATED AND DON’T LOSE HOPE – we will get through this together

Lastly, I want to remind EVERYONE to PLEASE do your due diligence and don’t let yourself get “sucked in” by all the online social media posts.

 

Get informed by going to each government agency’s website:  If you live in the County or City please check their websites and get informed. 

 

Also, if your State has a text message system sign up so you can get the latest alerts on changes within your State.

 

I welcome all comments and additional information that will help our viewers.

How to Create Your Business Plan 101

The "Hustler Business Plan" 101

Create a successful business plan for your Business (DIY)

Boss Up and Rise

By FAVIOLA VALENCIA "THE CEO HUSTLER"

Why is a Business Plan important?

 

Imagine starting your business with “high-profit margins, low overhead, and no physical products, a business you could run from the comfort of your own home or from wherever” all while bringing in six figures, with a platform you probably already use – wouldn’t that be great?!

 

Well, before you can do that you need to create a business plan just as with any other business, you need to have a plan in place for your business, regardless of the type of business.

 

So, before you even begin to think about making any type of income from your services, or products, you need to start treating your “business” as a business.

 

Yes, many “businesses” start a business, but they don’t treat it like a business…In other words, they are just providing the service, collecting the money “commingling funds and their business”, which is a NO!, NO!

 

Little Story: I started my business in 2000 but unlike many businesses I had business experience both Small and Corporate experience and therefore I knew early on what I needed to have in place and what I needed for my business in order to protect it and protect myself.

 

However NOTHING is “BULLETPROOF” and even with all these measures things still happen, but if you prepare yourself you are able to handle things a lot better than NOT being prepared, right?!

“A business without a plan is doomed to fail, According to U.S. Small Business Administration, a business plan precisely defines your business, identifies your goals and serves as your firm’s resume.”

The biggest mistake that I’ve come across when it comes to business is that many exist without a business plan. 

 

But, unfortunately, many fail or put their business at RISK because they don’t have what they need for their business.  

 

A companies business plan is the foundation of a business, without it, a company is inevitably “doomed to fail – bottom line your putting your business at RISK!”

 

Example: When you have a plan you actually start thinking about your earnings,  but also the best way on how to allocate your resources—time and plan more importantly plan on your business growth and where you want to be or go.

 

Unfortunately, not every savvy entrepreneur creates a plan before they launch a new venture…All entrepreneurs, freelancers, solopreneurs, start-ups, etc should (must) create a business plan.

 

Regardless of how long you’ve been in business (even if you are a newbie), walk with me through the following steps and let’s create a strategy (we’ll call it our “Hustler business plan”) and fast track your path to profitability.

If you are struggling with your business, I invite you to Join Me on 12/26/2019 at 6:00 p.m (pst) this is my yearly workshop where we dive in on; year-end review, new year planning, planning and development and so much more.  Spaces are limited so don’t delay and sign up now…

Don’t miss out on this amazing price and bonuses will not be available until next year!

A business plan doesn’t have to be complex or 20+pages long especially if you are just starting out, it can be a Basic plan with basic components;  balance sheet, an income statement, and a cash flow analysis.  

 

It will help you allocate resources properly, handle unforeseen complications, and make the right decisions for you and your business.

 

This information is crucial for your business because it provides specific and organized information about your company and how you will repay any borrowed money.  And more importantly, having a good business plan will help your overall success for you and your business. 

 

A business plan will also help you if you are thinking of adding on a sales team, VA’s, vendors, suppliers, or operations team, but it will help you define and focus on your goals.

 

Remember your business is your “Baby” and having a plan on how to care for your “Baby” is going to be so important and crucial for the overall growth of your “Baby”, right?  You have to teach your baby how to “Crawl before they Walk, and before they Run”…  

 

So, now that we got the “411” out of the way, let me tell you that everything that I share with you is based on “Real Life” experiences, knowledge, trial/error, research and development and I share with you ONLY things that I’ve invested in and proven methods. 

 

Having said that, you can choose to spend the Time & Money in doing your research, or contracting another “Coach” to create the plan for your business, or you can invest in my DIY that includes a Step-by-Step process and plan that I’ve used for my business. 

 

I spent over $5k on this plan, but I share it with you because I know how expensive starting and growing a business can be and I wish I had this same benefit back when I started my business, but I didn’t!

 

Did you know that A business plan varies quite a bit and Consultants can charge around $3,000 to $15,000 for a complete business plan? For larger corporate projects, expect to see costs ranging from $25,000 to $50,000 – YES!!! 

 

And these plans usually don’t include your Sales & Marketing, Strategic Planning, HR, Operations, etc…these are all sold separately but are so IMPORTANT if you want to run a successful business!

 

Let me tell you that I spent over $30k just on plans, handbooks, manuals, etc but they played a key role in my growth and success with my business, more importantly, they helped me get the 6-figure contracts and expansion.

Lessons Learned Throughout my Business

#TheRiseTheFallTheComeback 

Faviola the CEO Hustler

By FAVIOLA ARANDA 'THE CEO HUSTLER'

Lessons Learned throughout my business are that no matter what you go through, you still need to…

 

MAKE IT HAPPEN! 

 

TRUE STORY📖 I started my business in 2000 with a Dream & Vision.

 

I NEVER thought in my wildest dreams and didn’t I think I had it in me to build a Top-Notch Corporate Business…

 

But I did it! (I built a 6-figure business in less than 3-months)😱

 

▶️I didn’t have a plan, BUT…

▶️Had a Vision & Dream, And…

▶️I didn’t have a degree, but I had tons of business experience!

▶️ But more importantly, I never let ANYTHING STOP ME 🛑 or get in my way to succeeding!

 

But then something happened…

“The Rise, The Fall, The ComeBack, I am Faviola #TheCEOHustler”

Life happened!

 

I suffered an auto accident while coming back from San Francisco, CA.

 

I had all 3 of my kids in the car when we got rear-ended. I almost lost my small child, but Thank God, he’s OK.

 

Unfortunately, I ended up with severe neck/back/tissue/tendon injuries (still suffer from these same pains)!

 

If things couldn’t get worse one day we were at the Lake (our favorite place to relax) where unfortunately our middle child suffered a severe fracture (Jetski injury) and was in a body cast (femur fracture) for months!!!

 

Then to my surprise I got pregnant (which it’s supposed to be the best time for a mother), right?

 

Unfortunately for me it was such a horrible time and such a bad experience because I almost lost my Baby Girl due to a bad pregnancy due to (severe cholestasis). 

 

I was in/out of the hospital 🏥 for 6-months until finally my husband couldn’t handle me anymore and had to get me hospitalized. 

 

He had me admitted to the hospital for care and treatment. 

 

My daughter was finally born (premature baby at only 32 weeks), but as you all see from my family pics thank God she’s a beautiful miracle princess!  

 

Unfortunately during this same time frame, my father was also diagnosed with Glioblastoma (As you can imagen we were devastated by everything going on)…

 

You see there was so much going on as I was still recovering from:

  • Auto Accident
  • My Son in Body Cast
  • Then my pregnancy 🤰 (almost lost my daughter)
  • To make it worse my poor father was slowly dying from Brain 🧠 Cancer.  And then…
  • Unbeknownst to me the economy was collapsing…(S*** 💩was literally happening all at once!)

 

⚠️Unbeknownst to us the business was also starting to go downhill all due to these

⚠️”Life Situations and Unforeseen Circumstances)!

⚠️And of course, things just got worse!

 

I started getting sued left & right, getting harassed, threatened by interpreters and them literally coming to my home threatening me!!! 😢) who FREAKING DOES THAT?!!! 

 

Keep in mind that I also had 100’s of clients who owed me money 💵 who were not paying, and then the government shutdown!

 

This also affected my business sooo bad, yet I wasn’t at my client’s homes/doors/place of business harassing them or threatening them, but hey we are ALL DIFFERENT, RIGHT?!

And then S*** 💩😢happened my father passed away📿!!!

 

All of this while on verge of:

  • Losing my house and losing everything I worked so hard for.
  • I was heart broken💔
    • No money
    • In pain
    • Sick and devastated, but severely defeated,

It felt like a knife “ripping through my chest”💔!

 

Life was happening behind the scenes (but the “ruthless” interpreters/contractors, sorry to say this)…

 

These same “ruthless interpreters/contractors” were the same ones who for years:

  • I provided work too
  • Who I always put first

I took them out to:

  • eat
  • gave them awards
  • provided them with stipends
  • opened the doors to my house
  • invited them to workshops (for free)

 

I provided them with FREE Training because without them my business would not have grown as big as it did!

 

I acknowledge that they plaid a big part of my business.

 

But unfortunately life happened, S***💩hit the fan and everything I did for them went out the window. 

 

They forgot who I was and smeared my name like I was nothing (that broke me and brought me to my knees, sever depression, anxiety, suicidal)!

 

After years of therapy and hitting “rock bottom” I learned to forgive them.

 

After a couple of years I decided to move on because I had kids, a family and I was NOT going to let this BREAK ME!

 

I’m sure they were going through similar situations due to the economy, but to be so brutal, disrespectful, vicious, hateful & to not care or understand my situation was beyond disbelieve! 

 

They didn’t care that

 

  1. My family was depending on me
  2. That 10 other employees & their families were also depending on me
  3. I also knew they were depending on me; and…

 

That I was doing my best to make things right! But…

 

I couldn’t because I had no more money, no more resources!

 

Unfortunately, after my Dad passed I no longer gave a S*** 💩😢 and had no choice but to file for Bankruptcy and Closed my Doors! 

 

I felt like a total failure, defeated, depressed and just TIRED!!!

I don’t wish this on ANYONE!

 

Therefor it’s so important to build a business that will hopefully prevent some of these issues that I went trough!

 

I will teach you everything that I’ve learned “Good, Bad, Evil” to help you AVOID the same entrepreneur struggles I went through.

I Learned My Lesson and I learned to #NeverGiveUp

 

If my father taught me anything in this world – that was to Never Give Up!

 

So, after a few months/years of therapy, counseling and letting the storm pass, I decided to get up and #BossUpandRise 💯🔥

 

I dusted my self off and went back 🔙 to the drawing board!

 

Looking back I don’t regret ANYTHING, but wished I could have done better, been better prepared, but hey God does things for a REASON!

 

I NOW appreciate the experience because;

1️⃣ I understand that God does things for a reason.  (This experience was necessary for me to learn & understand that we must prepare for the future & for ‘unforeseen circumstances’, but also take care of ourselves before being able to take care of others.)

 

2️⃣ It helped me so that I can help others AVOID these same struggles, challenges, but more importantly, help them prepare for the future and give back through training and development!

 

3️⃣ It helped me to be the person I am today. Share+Learn+Grow+Prepare+Plan for the Future and continue to Help Others!

 

You see, we all make mistakes, but we can all learn from them & help others AVOID these same mistakes.🙏

 

We have 2 Choices..Get up #BossUpandRise or Stay down and be defeated!

 

Regardless of the circumstances #KeepOnGoing
