Hey there! I’m Marina Lotaif, the founder of Yes To Tech. 🖥 It’s our mission to empower non-techie online entrepreneurs like you maximize your online presence. 🌟
Join the party (we officially kick off our Instagram account on Monday, January 15th) for website creation tips and tricks ⌨️, the tech needed when you're just getting started, behind the scenes pics and offers 🤩, fun entrepreneurial tidbits, and to discover cool ways you can maximize your presence online. 🎉
So, what’s the story behind our name? 🤔 Well, as you well know, technology isn’t something that’s seen as very user-friendly, especially when you’re a non-techie business owner or blogger. 📱
Creating a website yourself isn’t something that comes naturally. Neither is driving tons of traffic to it, or developing your own brand, without a single drop of help from a professional designer. 💪🏻
Your focus is on creating amazing content, and on connecting with your dream audience, so that you can leave your 9-5 and run your own empire. 🙌🏻 Your focus is not on figuring out all the tech stuff that goes behind it. 🤯
That’s where we come in: we want to throw away all the stress and overwhelm that comes along with starting and running your very own online business, and have you say YES TO TECH! 💻🤓
You’ll never know why you were held back by the tech stuff in the first place. Welcome aboard! 😊
Off to Florida ✈ Obsessed with my new, monogrammed @away suitcase. Let's do this Florida - HydraFacial + ZO launch event, Facebook Live and social media strategizing with top accounts. Busy schedule, 24 hour trip = no sleep, little eating and a little nicotine 😭
They say your 20’s is the perfect time to find your purpose + passion because your young and free. Let me tell you I’m definitely in that stage of life; I’ll be 26 in a few months! I know my passion (and possibly purpose) is to help people; specifically help them SUCCEED in business through marketing.⠀
At this point I’m just not sure exactly HOW I want to help, I have a million ideas but need to hone in on a couple or I’ll end up spreading myself to thin in a million different ways. I know one day my drive to help you will lead to a team bigger than me….and I can’t wait to be in a conference room like this with my team discussing our next strategy or product to help YOU!⠀
This has been my day. I've picked up last of my Christmas jumpers, had coffee and a rant with my amazing friend @clairemacintyrephotography . Then a little pamper - nails and then hair washed and blow dried. All while. Wearing a #christmasjumper :)

Had the chance to visit my cousin last weekend,@dollface.diva, and WOW!
Besides catching up with her and seeing her boys👬, Karma, Hulk & GiGi (her pets), I had the chance to check out her Lashing Out Loud salons and it was so inspiring. To know all the obstacles she's overcome to get here and to have witnessed it all from concept to inception. Now, L.O.L.™ is rated #1 in West Palm Beach 👏and the L.O.L.™ brand lashes and lip balm are in-cre-di-ble. 🙌
So if you're in West Palm Beach 🌴or know someone in the area that's interested in lash extensions, send them her way- You won't be disappointed! ~~Cheers 🍻 to the strong women💃out there paving the way for our little girls everywhere!! #luvher#inspire#influencer#LashingOutLoud#lashextentions#womanpower#womanempowerment#entrepenuer#bossgirl#bosslife

Are you watching my IG stories? 🎥✨ it’s yoga all week! Since I started journaling my yoga practice has become something spectacular. The affirmations I write in my journal I bring to my practice and set as my intention. It’s a brilliant energy focusing on my affirmations during my workout. I feel so elevated after my practice. BRING ON FRIDAY! ✨🧘♀️
Most people would think these pictures were the wrong way around!!
Well this proves that no matter what, you can still work hard and get results. So many mothers feel like they can’t get their body back after having children. I once thought that too. But you really can if you want to ❤️
⬅️ little to no exercise at all
⬅️ bad eating habits ⬅️ binge drinking every weekend ⬅️ no confidence ⬅️ skinny fat
➡️ weight training 4 times a week
➡️ intuitively eating healthier foods
➡️ happy and confident ➡️ more muscular physique .
Pretty much the same weight in both these pictures 🙌🏻
Please don’t think that just because your now a Mum that you cant have the body you want, it is achievable if you’re willing to commit 🙌🏻
What do I most need to be grateful for this winter?

I am supported in making my dreams reality. This is a time of routine and structure. The stability of this time is long overdue! After chaotic times-years-it’s perfect conditions for work. Allowance to strive for the big goal here as financially things are positive, family ties are positive, and the 6yr old Hazel child is more independent and “respectful” of my quiet time with work. Also, building on a foundation of love! My partner (my ex-husband and father of Hazel) and I are enjoying the fruits of our labors in our “back together/new,” loving relationship since summer. The job that takes him away to the Bering Sea reconnects me with myself. I’m periodically staring out the window in my home office at the fluffy flakes coming down, all around the massive centerpiece of an oak. Life is very good.
I discovered that the more I eat healthy, the more I crave healthy foods and the less I desire junk food and desserts. Don’t get me wrong, I still love sweets. But, I have found that my body doesn’t crave junk food as much anymore. The more you eat healthy, the easier it gets☺️
Here is a great breakfast or bedtime snack!
▫️1/2 cup Oatmeal
▫️Frozen mixed berries
▫️Vanilla Almond Granola
P.s. I also add Almond milk and a sprinkle of brown sugar.
Just been to a networking event this morning and this girl needed some business cards! I rarely see my own brand in print as most of my work is online based. It’s a great feeling to see my own biz prints! #onlywayisup
