    Friday Ramblings-Checking The To Do List

    I’m almost done with my to do list for the week. I promised myself the days of working beyond 5 p.m. and weekends were behind me, but sometimes you have to push yourself just a little more. I’ve told myself that this afternoon I’ll sit down and finish working on the final product for my Black Friday Sale. Once it’s done, then I’m going to find something fun to watch and relax. Next week, I want to put the finishing touches to all three products, do final edits for my WIP, and work on my 2021 goals. How about you? Set any goals for the new year yet? Sometimes the…

    Black Friday Sales

    Two more weeks and counting… Still working on your three products for the upcoming Black Friday sales rush? I must admit that I’m running behind just a tad. I have two products almost ready. One more left to go and then I’ll work on the graphics. One product will also launch my new site that I’ll be telling you more about. If you’re a self publisher or thinking about becoming one in 2021, stay tuned. I’ll also be putting all the products in the store on sale for Black Friday and then have another promotion for Cyber Monday. I’m also thinking about having a 12 days of Christmas sale where…

    What Did You Learn Last Week?

    Week two of learn something new each day. Following along? It’s not too late to start. In fact, my motto is it’s never too late to start anything. If you have been following along, do you want to share with us what new skills or knowledge you’ve acquired? Last week, I focused on learning how to make homemade shampoo bars…love those things but the price is high. I also watched a tutorial on making your own air fresheners, and one on making lip balm. Also, on my list was making mug cakes. I love baking but I have to be honest if I make a whole cake, it’s a too…

    Monday Motivation-Make A Difference

    If you don’t think your business in impacting someone’s life in a positive way, think again. Your coaching could inspire someone to dream big and achieve something that’s always been in heart. Or even give them the confidence they need to take that first step. You might even be providing a product that puts a smile on someone’s face after a long day at work. This is one of my favorite sayings because many of the products and services we have today is all because someone else put in all that work, sometimes years ago.

    Friday Ramblings-Make the Most of It

    The weather forecast says two more days of above normal temperatures and then, rain, and possibly snow, makes a comeback. I always say make the most of it and I’m finishing my Friday workday at noon so I can go outside and clean leaves for what I’m assuming will be the last time this year. Lots more to fall but that’s a chore for spring. I do have plenty of indoor projects lined up for winter. I also want to focus on doing more artwork. One of the places I love for easy to follow art classes (and all sorts of other creative pursuits too) is Creativebug. I’ve been a…

    Three Weeks To Black Friday

    Three weeks, three products… That’s how long you have left to create and polish the three products you’ll be adding to your store or service line up when Black Friday rolls around…well, that is if you’re taking the challenge. I’m guessing, like me, creating products for your site, might not be your only business. And, like me, sometimes those other businesses eat up your time. That’s what happened to me this week. I had two boot camps launching and needed to get my WIP ready to send out for editing. Both of which left me short on time to work on my last product for the Black Friday launch. And…

    What Have You Learned So Far?

    It’s day three of Learn Something New Every Day Challenge? Learned anything useful? Something that could save you money, make you money, or something that’s just plain fun? Here’s what I have so far. On Sunday, I learned to make tempeh bacon. Turned out pretty good although I did have to double the marinade and I think next time around I’ll add something with a little more kick to the ingredients. This was in my save money category because if you know anything about vegan food, especially the ‘fake’ meat type products, they’re expensive. While I was looking for a recipe, I think I fell down the learning something new…
