    Two more weeks and counting… Still working on your three products for the upcoming Black Friday sales rush? I must admit that I’m running behind just a tad. I have two products almost ready.

If you’re a self publisher or thinking about becoming one in 2021, stay tuned.

    What Did You Learn Last Week?

    Week two of learn something new each day. Following along? It’s not too late to start. In fact, my motto is it’s never too late to start anything. If you have been following along, do you want to share with us what new skills or knowledge you’ve acquired? Last week, I focused on learning how to make homemade shampoo bars…love those things but the price is high. I also watched a tutorial on making your own air fresheners, and one on making lip balm. Also, on my list was making mug cakes. I love baking but I have to be honest if I make a whole cake, it’s a too…

    Friday Ramblings-What Does Your Friday Look Like?

    Welcome to October. What do you have planned this month? Today, I thought back to when I worked for someone else and what Fridays used to mean. The end of the work week, a two day rest, my mind thinking about anything besides work. Fridays take on a whole new meaning when you become your own boss. Well, at least they have for me. I’ve used them to think about what I got done, what I didn’t get to, and what I want to achieve the following week. Before I used Fridays for planning, my mind wouldn’t switch off and I’d be thinking about work at the weekend too. Not…

For the last five years or so, I’ve seen more people getting side gigs, selling coaching services, selling things on Etsy and this year, well, it seems more people have been invited to join the party.

    Do You Want Control Over Your Future?

    Have you ever wondered what it would be like never worry about losing your job? Dreaming about being in control of your own destiny?
