    Friday Ramblings-Self Publishing Entrepreneurs

    It’s spring but yesterday we had snow…big change from the 70 degree temps earlier in the week. How is everyone doing? I hope you’re well and doing something fun besides working. Taking time off is something I’ve always found hard to do. I’ve told myself that this weekend I’m going to do some artwork. My self publishing class began on Monday and I’m seeing more people want to go that route. (More people have told me now they have the time, they’re finally writing a book). Five years ago I launched a site dedicated to self publishing because I knew it was going to be the new big thing. I…

    Recession Proof Yourself, Your Business and Your Life

    What’s happening in the world reminds me of the old saying about not putting all your eggs into one basket. I work in the creative field and every day I’m hearing about people losing contracts, clients canceling projects, and people generally not knowing how they’re going to make it through the months ahead. Proactive measures are always better than reactive ones so now is the time to think about businesses that are sort of polar opposites of one another. It’s the way successful entrepreneurs have always done it. If one business gets hit during a downturn, you have one or more other ‘different’ businesses to keep you afloat. Say you…

    Making Money With Your Blog

    Making money on your blog…why would there be any other reason to have one, right? When I started Budget Smart Girl (and also my writing blog), making money was actually the last thing on my mind. I wanted to share my knowledge, offer advice and yes, hopefully entertain my audience too. However, there comes a point when work takes up lots of your time and you wonder if you want to put in another hour or two that translates into volunteer work. Last year, that’s how I started to feel about blogging. It’s one of the reasons I gave up blogging here at BSG. I was paying for a site…

    Friday Ramblings-A Week of This and That

    Hope you’re all safe and well as these difficult times continue. I’ve had a week’s break from teaching and it looks like my synopsis boot camp class might need to be canceled due to low enrollment. Even the other class on self publishing doesn’t have the usual amount and it’s normally a popular topic. I thought this might happen as people are going to be watching their budgets. My classes over at Skillshare, have however, gotten more students enrolled. Another case in point, to diversify and not rely on one revenue stream. I have been reading up on the topic of number of times you should post to blogs and…

    Friday Ramblings-One For the History Books

    Hope you are all safe and well on this last Friday of March. It’s been quite a month, hasn’t it? I think it will definitely be one for the history books. So, craziness in our world aside, what did you achieve this March? I’ve been reading about people in my local area who have had to close their stores, calls from potential clients aren’t coming in like they’d hope, and lots of people wonder if they have enough savings to last until things go back to normal. These are all reminders that everyone needs a rainy day fund and something to fall back onto because we never know when something…

    Future Thinking Entrepreneurs

    What will the world look like in six months, one year, two years? What will people be doing, what will they be needing? It’s during uncertain times that we all need to think ahead and plan for your financial future. I’ve always said smart people don’t think about today, they think way into the future and prepare for the what ifs life always throws at us. As we head into April, let’s sit and think about what’s going to change. Here are a few things I came up with- Digital Future I’m seeing lots of articles about people not wanting to handle things like cash and paper. I think that…
