    Find Fellow Entrepreneurs and Find Help

    Do you sometimes think if only I could find someone to help me set up my business, or a person the offer suggestions on how to grow my business? One of the downsides of working for yourself is you often don’t know who to turn to when you have a question. Or maybe you want to take your business to the next level and don’t know what path you should take. I’ve always been lucky that I’ve been in groups or been on e-mail lists of fellow entrepreneurs. None of us can do this alone. I went searching online and found the following groups and/or organizations that you might like…

    Showcase and Promote You and Your Business

    Would you like to showcase and promote you and your business on Budget Smart Girl? I’ve spent some of the morning planning out fall content for the site and thought it would be great to have you promote your services and products here for others to see. It could be someone is looking for something you’ve made or a service you offer. It could be you’re a virtual assistant and someone needs help with responding to e-mails or posting on social media. Maybe you’ve got software that can streamline someone’s business. Perhaps a product that while it isn’t necessary business orientated, it’s a rest and relaxation one, like handmade soap…

    How to Launch a Planner and Journal Side Gig

    Looking for something quick and easy for your side gig? Look no further than the planner and journal business. Yes, I know that market is getting saturated but as I always say, brainstorm new ideas, find a niche that’s untapped, and I think you’ll be on your way to a steady side gig that could turn into full time business. I know lots of people who have done just that. What if you don’t have any graphic design skills or don’t know how to put them together? Remember last week we talked about PLR? While the majority of PLR is in the form of articles, e-books and courses, some journals,…

    Feel Like Taking Control of Your Life?

    If 2020 has shown us anything, it’s how an unexpected event can change our world, disrupt out lives, and even take away our jobs and income. I think it’s been a wake-up call for lots of people and if starting a business and being more financially independent is now on your must do list then you’re in the right place. This week I want you to think about the following- The kind of business you want The kind of life you want And don’t worry if you still can’t figure it all out because my friend Angela Wills has a program that will help you focus on what type of…

    PLR-Private Label Rights

    Want a quick way to add content to your site or put together a quick publication to give to clients or subscribers? If you create content, I probably don’t have to tell you it’s a lot of work. It’s time consuming and to be perfectly honest, some days you draw a blank about what to share with your audience. You could hire someone to do the writing for you but that can get expensive. An another alternative is PLR. It stands for Private Label Rights. It can be anything from an already written blog post, an e-book or even a journal or planner. The creator sells you PLR rights which…

    Planning Ahead

    Fall is still a little over a month away but with an early morning chill in the air, I’ve begun planning. Fall not only ushers in beautiful colors and more comfortable temps, but the realization that there’s only four more months left in the year. Time to take a look back at what you’ve done, what you promised to do, and what you can still do in those four remaining months. Yesterday, I sat down and began my fall planning and thought I’d share it with you. Bundle Contributions I’m taking part in two bundle contributions this fall. I’m excited about it because earlier contributions helped me grow my list.…

    New Skills-Faster Financial Independence

    Is there a new skill you’ve been eager to learn? I guess you’d call me lucky because I’ve always been eager to learn new things and acquire new skills. In fact, I think I’d be bored if I didn’t. It’s served me well, not only for hobbies but for business too. From writing to self publishing and beyond, I’ve adapted to the ever changing world. It’s not always been easy. Some things have might a huge learning curve for me to climb and conquer but once you get over that mountain, things get a whole lot easier and clearer. I like to think that learning new skills is essential for…

    Friday Ramblings-There’s Another $7 Flash Sale

    This week, I began writing the 14th book in one of my continuing fiction series. I usually write fiction after I’ve finished my coaching and writing. Some days it was hard. Some days I wanted to shut my eyes and take a rest, some days I wanted to read the mystery I’m in the middle of. Yet, on others, do some artwork while I watched a movie. Temptation was there but I managed to push it away and I got 5,000 words written in about four days. I’m telling you this because I know you’ll have days where you know you should be doing something and it takes all your…

    Business Ideas For 2020 and Beyond

    Want to start a business but lost for ideas? Many of you have contacted me saying you’d love to start a business but haven’t got a clue as to what sort of business to launch. Rather than respond to each of you, I thought I’d write a post about it. In fact, I sat and brainstormed what ideas I think will work for 2020 and probably beyond. To say this year is a strange one, well, that’s an understatement. We’ve seen a shift from what less than a year ago was considered normal. People getting up and going to work, kids heading off to school but now our lives look…
