    Countdown to Black Friday

    Just 5 more weeks until Thanksgiving and you know what happens the day after that? Well, apart from the guilt of overindulging. It’s Black Friday. Are you taking the create 3 products to sell on Black Friday challenge? Having trouble deciding what to create for the sale? Think about what your customer or subscriber needs? What problem can you solve for them? Look at your current line up of goods and services and think about what’s missing? More PLR products maybe? More health and wellness products. You might even think about offering coaching or a membership package. What better way to launch new products and services than Black Friday when…

    Be Flexible When Working From Home

    Today’s the perfect example of learning to be flexible when you work from home. My to do list included getting at least one new class recorded. I was all set, ready to plug in my microphone when…wait, what was that noise? Hammering, guys talking… I’ve worked in my home office for close to twenty years. My neighborhood used to be the quietest place I’ve ever lived. Fast forward to the last few years, especially this year, and things have changed. Not only have more neighbors begun to work remotely and think it’s a great idea to make their sales calls with their windows wide open, but it seems like everyone’s…

    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…

    Five Reasons To Write a Non-Fiction Book

    Have you been thinking about writing a book? Publishing used to be for the select few but with self publishing platforms like Amazon, Nook, Kobo, and let’s no forget Smashwords, there’s never been a better or easier time to pen a non-fiction book. If I haven’t convinced you, then here are my top five reasons why you should get started today- Shows You As An Expert People listen to and buy from people who they consider experts. I’m not just talking about people with advanced degrees in topics, but anyone who has knowledge and the expertise they feel can help them solve a problem. It could be their home or…

    Friday Ramblings-Everyday Stuff Gets in the Way

    Sorry I haven’t posted much this week but it’s been errands and keeping busy with writing and teaching. I’m guessing those of you who are content creators know that some days, there’s not enough energy left to even write a short post. Tuesday and Thursday felt like that for me. Hopefully, I’ll get back on track next week. There are some sales and bundle giveaways coming up too. I love working with my fellow entrepreneurs and I’m often in awe of the products they produce (sometimes week after week). I’m making progress with my new book, still on course for a late November release date. I’m also rethinking the new…

    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…

    Planning Ahead

    Fall is still a little over a month away but with an early morning chill in the air, I’ve begun planning. Fall not only ushers in beautiful colors and more comfortable temps, but the realization that there’s only four more months left in the year. Time to take a look back at what you’ve done, what you promised to do, and what you can still do in those four remaining months. Yesterday, I sat down and began my fall planning and thought I’d share it with you. Bundle Contributions I’m taking part in two bundle contributions this fall. I’m excited about it because earlier contributions helped me grow my list.…

    New Skills-Faster Financial Independence

    Is there a new skill you’ve been eager to learn? I guess you’d call me lucky because I’ve always been eager to learn new things and acquire new skills. In fact, I think I’d be bored if I didn’t. It’s served me well, not only for hobbies but for business too. From writing to self publishing and beyond, I’ve adapted to the ever changing world. It’s not always been easy. Some things have might a huge learning curve for me to climb and conquer but once you get over that mountain, things get a whole lot easier and clearer. I like to think that learning new skills is essential for…
