Sometimes it just takes a little brainstorming to figure out what that skill or knowledge base is. Angela over at Laptop Lifestyle University is offering a free webinar this Thursday August 6th at 3 p.m. ET called “Turn Your Skills into a Laptop Lifestyle” Angela has put her skills and knowledge to great use in developing a business that’s not only successful but it’s run online too.

    Friday Ramblings-Freelance Survival

    It’s been a hot and humid week which has meant that I’ve spent more time inside. I’d generally see this as a bad thing as I’m an outdoors sort of person, but it’s allowed me to finish one of my products for BSG. In fact, I uploaded it the other day and it’s the Freelance Survival Pack. It’s something I wish I’d gotten my hands on when I launched my freelance writing business. Whether, like me, you’re a writer, or a coach, artist, graphic designer, whatever, you’ll find 30 checklists, templates, planners, and tips to help you either get started as a freelancer or if you’re already freelancing, help make…

    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…

    Friday Ramblings-New Feature?

    Hope you’ve had a wonderful week. It’s certainly flown by. Lots of you have asked if I’m going to feature money saving tips again. While the new focus of the site leans toward ways you can make money, along with products that can help you do that, that’s not to say I won’t throw in the odd post or two. One thing I’m considering is a worth it or not, feature. Sort of like reviews on things I’ve purchased and offering you an honest opinion on whether or not you should spend your money. I buy lots of things I wish I hadn’t because they didn’t taste good, or didn’t…

    Three New Products Just for You

    I’ve been self employed for over 20 years. While it does get easier over time, one thing remains a pain in the you know what. That thing is time. There’s only 24 hours of it and we have other things to do besides run a business. One of my goals here at BSG is to not only help you live your dream, and work toward a secure future, but to provide you with products that can help you do it easier and faster. Flatten the learning curve and shave off some of those time stealers. I’ve been working on three new products and this week, finally got them loaded into…

    Friday Ramblings-Money Makeover

    It’s June and yes, I’m already running behind with posting here. I’ll be honest it’s tough. I’m sure those of you who have blogs, sites, whatever, know what I’m talking about. Life and other stuff ties up your time. This week, the first session of the summer writing retreat began. It’s great to see so many people who are taking all three sessions to write or at least get started on writing a book. If you’d like to join us, it’s not too late and you can read the lessons any time…they’re delivered to your e-mail. Participate whenever you want and there’s a workbook too. Lots of fun so here’s…

    Friday Ramblings-Much Needed Rest

    Another busy week and I’m glad that this weekend has an added day for some rest and relaxation. One thing I’ll never sugarcoat are facts about running a business and working for yourself. While I wouldn’t want to go back to working for someone else, going solo isn’t all plain sailing. Life and chores get in the way and that’s what’s been happening this week. It’s spring and here, that means trying to get as much done outside as you can. Sometimes before you know it, it’s September and you have to begin thinking about raking leaves and packing away garden stuff. I’ve found finding a balance is the key…
