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…

    Black Friday Countdown Begins

    Ready for Black Friday? We’re now about four weeks away from the biggest shopping day of the year. Thought about the three products you’re going to create for your own Black Friday sale? Just think, all it takes is one product per week, and then a final week polishing and refining them and then you’re all set. I worked on my self-publishing product this week, next week, it’s going to be the promotion tool kit, and week three, well actually, I’ve changed to a self improvement tool kit. Remember your sale product doesn’t have to be a physical one, it could be digital like mine, or it could be a…

    Learn Something New Every Day Begins on Sunday

    It begins on Sunday. Are you ready? November 1st is day one of the BSG Learn Something New Every Day Challenge. What’s on your list? It could be something that’s just plain fun. It might be something that will save you money. Perhaps it’s something that could even make you money. Is there anything you’ve been trying (or dying), to learn but haven’t been motivated enough? The Instant Pot or bread maker you bought that’s just been sitting on the shelf unused because you can’t figure out how to use it or what to make in it? The irritating door that squeaks but you’ve no idea how to fix it?…

    Be Flexible When Working From Home

    Today’s the perfect example of learning to be flexible when you work from home. My to do list included getting at least one new class recorded. I was all set, ready to plug in my microphone when…wait, what was that noise? Hammering, guys talking… I’ve worked in my home office for close to twenty years. My neighborhood used to be the quietest place I’ve ever lived. Fast forward to the last few years, especially this year, and things have changed. Not only have more neighbors begun to work remotely and think it’s a great idea to make their sales calls with their windows wide open, but it seems like everyone’s…
