    How Prepared Are You?

    If your computer crashed or a platform you sell on went out of business, are you prepared? If 2020 taught us anything it was that everything can change and change quickly. Have you given any thought to what would happen if the platform you sell your products on or the company that hosts your web site suddenly goes out of business, what you’ll do. Panic shouldn’t be the first word that comes to mind. My late father always told me to have a back up plan for everything in life. I’ve done my best to follow his advice but sometimes we get busy and sometimes we don’t see things coming…

    Hold Yourself Accountable

    Last week we focused on staying motivated and finding an accountability partner. In today’s post, I’d like to tell you about something I’ve been doing to hold myself accountable. Yes, I’ve had accountability partners in the past. It’s my preferable way to go but sometimes it takes time finding one that’s a great match. I tried this alternative way last year, and so far, so good. At the beginning of each week, I take a sheet of paper and write down what I want to achieve in the next five days. I leave space between each one…I’ll tell you why in a minute. Fold the paper in half or thirds…

    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…

    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…

    I’ll be posting an interview with Angela Wills, founder of Laptop University very soon, but in the meantime, I wanted to share this with you. Angela’s put together a fantastic summit.

    Friday Ramblings-Hello March

    One week into March. It’s been a busy one but there are signs of spring in the air. One thing I love to do is take my work outside on the first warm day. One of the perks of running your own business and living the life you desire. How about you? What is your favorite thing about spring? I mentioned I began looking at RVs, well, small motorhomes to be exact. I’ve visited lots of web sites and one thing that struck me is how great some are and some just don’t want you to stick around. I’m not talking about fancy graphics and sites that have been put…
