    Blogging Tuesday

    This week I’m giving you a preview of what each Tuesday will feature here at BSG. The first Tuesday in each month will focus on blogs and blogging. It’s a popular way for people to make money, promote a business, or even set up a web site if you freelance or sell products. I thought I’d kick things off with my own blogging story and how Budget Smart Girl actually came to be. I was writing for a site called Hearth and Home and had a column there called Eating Well on a Budget and then had a second column called The Budget Smart Girl’s Guide to the Universe. I…

    Happy Holidays

    As 2019 comes slowly to a close, let’s start thinking about 2020. What do you have planned? Are you going to launch a business, start a side gig, save for retirement? I saw this quote that I thought I’d share with you. I’m taking a break over the next few weeks but things will kick off here at BSG on January 6th with our first Monday Motivation. I will be giving the site an overhaul over the holidays so if you stop by and things look strange, it’s me non-techy person, trying to figure things out! Until then, here’s wishing you the happiest of the holiday seasons. Talk soon and…

    What’s Ahead in 2020?

    As 2019 slowly draws to a close, it’s time to begin thinking about 2020. Do you already know what’s on your to do list, or what goals you’re going to tackle? As you know, I’m giving Budget Smart Girl a makeover. I’ve been brainstorming things I’d like to feature on the site and what sort of content I’d like to provide. I can’t promise that we’ll have the full week’s line up straight away but here’s what I’d eventually like to feature each week. Monday-it’s all about getting motivated. Lots of us have ideas for earning money and launching a business but what separates the just thinking about it from…

    E-Book Giveaways

    2020 is just around the corner. BSG going in a new direction, and maybe you are too. I’m giving away a copy of each of my new planners (you’ll get the e-book versions). The first one is the goal planner perfect for writing down everything you plan to do (and get done!) in 2020. If you have a blog or starting a blog is on your list then you might like to win the blog planner. I’m eager to get working on filling in mine so I can plan out great content for this site…more about that next week. One person will win the goal planner, one, the blog planner.…

    Two New Planners for the Entrepreneur

    I have two new planners I created with the budding or established entrepreneur in mind. One is a blog planner and the other a goal planner. The print versions are available at Amazon and cost $5.99 each. The digital versions are on my Etsy store and are $4.99 each but I’m running a Thanksgiving sale with 20% off which makes them $3.99. Here are the links to both sites. I got my print copies of these two planners and have to say I’m pleased with the product and I’ll be putting them to good use in 2020. If you’ve signed up for the free mini-retreat, ‘see’ you on Monday. Have…

    Free Mini-Retreat

    Many of you know that I’m an author and also teach and tutor aspiring writers. I’ve been teaching for various chapters of the Romance Writers of America for a decade. Together we’re always trying to come up with something new and we decided in 2020, I’d teach an online summer writing retreat. We also came up with the idea to offer a free mini-retreat next month to give prospective students a glimpse into what the main event will be like…it’s going to be fun! Some of you might be aspiring authors so I thought I’d share this information with the BSG community. In the holiday spirit, I’m going to give…

    Planning and Brainstorming

    Just a quick post this week about what I’ve been doing with regards to Budget Smart Girl. I’ve had a couple of days of brainstorming ideas. Thoughts about the direction this site will take in 2020 and what things I want to tackle. I think you’re going to like what I’ve come up with. I’ve decided that one day of each week will be devoted to some way you can make money or earn some extra cash. I also want to share real life stories of people running businesses and have a long list of people I want to interview to share their ideas and tips. (If you know anyone…

    Do You Know How You’re Going to Make Money?

    I’ve been putting together ideas for the direction of this site and where I want to take it in 2020 and who my target audience will be. I want to help people make money, help people with businesses and side gigs make more money. I also want to help people find their passion, find their calling, and make money doing what they love. I’ve got a long list of ideas for posts, people I want to interview, people just like you who now run a business and it all started one day when they simply had a dream about making more money. There are classes I want to teach…well, the…

    Multiple Streams of Income

    I’ve been working for myself for twenty years, dappling in some sort of work that brings in extra income for close 25 years. One thing I’ve learned from fellow entrepreneurs is you need to have multiple streams of income for those just in case times. Trends come and go, businesses take off then fail, recession hits and all three can take their toll on your bottom line. I’ve always followed the multiple income stream theory and I think it has kept me afloat many times. However, recently I’ve been wondering if it’s such a great thing. Besides my writing, teaching and coaching, I have t-shirts I sell on Merch by…
