    Friday Ramblings-Last One of August

    This whole year seems to be flying by and summer, while it’s not quite over yet, but fall isn’t that far away. Many of you know, I’ve been teaching an online three month writing retreat and seems like it was just yesterday that we got started and it ends on Monday. Speaking of which, I know some of you are aspiring writers, and lots of you have books that you want to promote so I thought I’d mention the two classes I’m teaching beginning on September 8th. First one is a regular class about crafting a short story. The other is my boot camp about promoting your book. This will…

    Friday Ramblings-New Month, New Goals

    Did you meet all your goals for April? These are disruptive, strange times for most of us, and setting goals and meeting them is often the last thing you think about. Or maybe it’s the first thing. I’ve been getting e-mails from lots of people who want to start their own business now that their jobs are no more. People who want more of solid financial base to build upon for times just like these. I also got e-mails from people who have been reading BSG since day one when I offered money saving tips. If you’re new here, check out the archives and you’ll find lots of articles about…

    Friday Ramblings-New Ventures, New Software

    Hope everyone has made it through a week which seemed like a roller coaster ride for the world. And it’s even Friday the 13th! Changes are a part of life. Not all change is bad…well, at least that’s what I always tell myself. Sometimes it’s our wake up call. It’s a great time to start thinking about the future and what could happen if you lost your money or lost your job…yes, even the business you worked so hard to build. Next week, think about what you can do to secure yourself against these bumps in the road that we all face from time to time. As you know, I…

    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…

    Friday Ramblings-February Progress

    It’s almost the end of the month and time to look back at successes and failures. A big success this month was getting the lessons and workbooks finished for my upcoming summer writing retreat that I’ll be teaching from June-August. I think the block working method I used (working on only that project and nothing else), helped get the job done. I also got my first product finished and loaded on this site (Content Creator’s Business Pack). And finally, I kept posting to the site as scheduled. I’ll admit some days were tough and some days I honestly thought about skipping it but I kept going. Failures-using the scheduling feature…

    Friday Ramblings-New Product Release

    This week, have you taken one more step toward living the life you love? Over at my writing blog, I write an article about living your dream and gave my readers a gentle nudge…you can also read about my lifelong desire to learn to play the piano at www.thiswriterslife.com This week, I finally finished, well 99% finished, the lessons and workbooks for the summer retreat I’m teaching in June, July and August. Remember me telling you about my new technique of block working…going all out on one project and not switching until it was done? I didn’t like it at first but I hate to admit it, but I’m getting…

    Friday Ramblings-Learning As You Go

    Seems like forever that I’ve been working for myself but one thing remains a constant. You never stop learning. In fact, you should never stop learning. One of my biggest hurdles is anything tech related. Yes, even getting this site and all the plugins to work how they’re supposed to. I struggle, I sometimes swear, and I only wish I figure it all out first time around. Over the holidays, I did manage to get the Popup Builder to work. However, do you think I get it to work on my freelance site? Not sure what I’m doing differently but it’s a learning process and I’ll keep at it. I…
