    Friday Ramblings-Freelance Survival

    It’s been a hot and humid week which has meant that I’ve spent more time inside. I’d generally see this as a bad thing as I’m an outdoors sort of person, but it’s allowed me to finish one of my products for BSG. In fact, I uploaded it the other day and it’s the Freelance Survival Pack. It’s something I wish I’d gotten my hands on when I launched my freelance writing business. Whether, like me, you’re a writer, or a coach, artist, graphic designer, whatever, you’ll find 30 checklists, templates, planners, and tips to help you either get started as a freelancer or if you’re already freelancing, help make…

    Money Master Challenge and a Free Gift

    The key to financial freedom is being smart with your money. We all have our Achilles’ heel when it comes to budgets and managing our financial future. I was excited to see that Angela over at Laptop YOUniversity is offering another Money Master Challenge starting on August 3rd.  Over the course of 21 days you can take the money challenge which will help put you on the right track with regards to your money, your relationship with it, not only today but in the future too.

    Budget Smart Girl-Budget Planner

    Have you wanted to keep track of where your money goes? What bills need paying and when? Can’t figure out how much is in that rainy day fund? While I consider myself pretty good with keeping track of my money, I’m lousy at keeping all the information in one place. I’ve been known to have slips of paper with how much I need to invoice a client, jotted on it. How much royalty I just got paid scribbled on another. Sticky pad notes stuck on the fridge, reminding me the car tabs need paying this month. I see you shaking your head and thinking ‘me too’. So, last week, while…

    Friday Ramblings-All Work and No Play

    I t’s a holiday weekend which means it’s time to take a rest. When you work for yourself it’s all too easy to watch others go play while you’re stuck in front of a computer screen. Even waving to everyone splashing around in the water while you balance a laptop on your knees. I’m a self confessed workalcoholic and sometimes that leads to burnout when you actually become less productive. So, let’s use this holiday weekend, to relax. Learn to take a step back from work and promise yourself you’ll do it at least once a month. I promise you you’ll feel better and more focused when you get back…

    Finding the Right Coach

    Coaches…these days, it seems like everyone has either a coach or is a coach. Some people even fit into both categories. When I started writing, I always thought wouldn’t it be great to have someone show me how it’s done. I never found that person and it was one of the reasons I decided to coach aspiring writers. Just about every profession has a coach, writing, art, business, and yes, the life coach. They’re popping up everywhere and you might even be thinking about hiring one. Here are some of my tips for finding the perfect match for your needs- What’s Their Background? I’m seeing more people hang out their…

    Do You Want Control Over Your Future?

    Have you ever wondered what it would be like never worry about losing your job? Dreaming about being in control of your own destiny? Not having to work more hours each week for the same amount of money? Twenty years ago, fate sort of intervened in my life and I was forced to quit my job. I was scared, I had a mortgage and car payment, and not to mention, there was food to buy. In my heart, I knew working for someone else was something I never wanted to do again. I won’t tell you it was an easy transition into self-employment because I’d be lying. However, everything worthwhile…
