Hopefully you're taking time off for the holidays. But if you don't want to completely detach, and enjoy doing little micro tasks during quiet time, here's a few things you can do (while watching movies or keeping warm fireside) Little things you can do over the...read more
Each year I pull together a roundup of all the deals that occur during BF/CM weekend (Friday - Monday usually). This year there have been so many 'pre-sales' that it made sense to compile them too. Ready to read on? Some links are affiliate links (one of the ways I...read more
Browse through the items on sale today! This is the 1st (and possibly last) sale of 2018 I’ll be available to answer questions live (in the little chat feature you see below) from 9-3 and again in the evening. If you need help and I’m not online, leave me a note and...read more
I'm all for spontaneity and "launching before you're ready" unless it's so 'unready' that your customers can't use it. Last week I bought something I had huge hopes for. I didn't just buy into the software, but the hype. And it was a huge disappointment. I'll tell you...read more
Your inbox has exploded with GDPR emails, but you've waited to take action, like me? I figured a roundup resource pointing quickly to tools, that will help you (and I) get these tasks done in the least amount of time, was warranted. This blog post is information as a...read more
Every January 1st I take a quick look at my websites to make sure the year is current in the footer. This year, I thought it might be helpful to share those steps with you. WordPress Footers and footer.php Divi from Elegant Themes - edit in customizer Update footer on...read more
I haven't done a year end review post since 2014. I'm not sure if I didn't enjoy it, or if I thought my year wasn't interesting since then, but I loved the format of Elizabeth Goddards (post here), and decided it would be a great way to celebrate some big and small...read more
By the time the US winter holiday season starts, we also seem to get into the new “planning season” for next year… Have you noticed? Especially if you’re an entrepreneur. And what better way to plan for 2018, than to find the perfect planner, that helps you brainstorm, create a plan for 2018, and then execute that plan.
In my experience it’s not a one size fits all approach, but something you refine for yourself, year after year. So I began pulling together an annual list of planners, specifically for online entrepreneurs.
Whatever planner you choose, keep these things in mind:
1. reflect on what worked & didn’t this past year
2. make adjustments
3. and then set your compass for the upcoming year.
Today we’re back with the annual Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday roundup for entrepreneurs, all rolled into one post. This morning, the post is quite lean, but as the weekend progresses you’ll find more and more deals that I’ve uncovered for you.
Instead of spending hours making a beautiful post page, this roundup post includes simple anchors you can click on, to get to a section that interests you, with a brief description, and links that open in a new tab, or window, so that you don’t lose your place.
I’ll also be sharing new links as I find them on Facebook hereread more
If you previously used WordPress.com you’re familiar with the options to follow a blog post (to receive updates when they’ve posted something new) without needing to subscribe to an email newsletter. But did you know you can use this same feature on your WordPress.org site, to bring in new audiences from WordPress.com?

I know that as an entrepreneur we should always be looking for ways to build our email list. But for me, helping people is always a bigger priority. So, if that means giving them an option to follow, instead of signing up (1 click, instead of typing and clicking at least 3 buttons) then why not offer it as an option too.
So, I’m turning on my “jetpack” follow feature again. And you might consider it too.
There are heaps of new benefits in the Jetpack tool chest * (a plugin I’ve been using since 2011) and not all of them will benefit you, but here are a couple that I think will.read more
If you've received about your Teachable school having mixed-content that may conflict once SSL security is enabled on your school. you might not know where to start, or what to look for. I'll admit I ignored the message, until someone tagged me in a post asking if I...read more
Do you ever wonder if your course, program, blog posts, opt in offer or sales pages just aren't good enough? I know I do, when I don't see money in the bank the way I had hoped, or my email list growing as fast as I'd like. (I promise, this isn't a sales pitch or...read more
As promised, here's the follow up post sharing the marketing I did last month when I didn't have a 5 figure product launch 🙂 I mentioned some these in my last post but I'll mention it again. I didn't do much marketing at all. And, maybe that's why I didn't earn as...read more
I'm a bit tired of the posts I see in Facebook about huge launch success stories (I have been, for a very long time), and I know I'm not alone. Every time I see a 5 figure product launch post, part of me shrinks back a little more. Not because I don't admire them for...read more
A week or so ago I signed up for a new service that would help me clean up my inbox (and save the environment, by not using the resources that are consumed by having a huge inbox). It looked smart. It looked like I was doing a really good thing. But, then I needed to...read more
