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.
And 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...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

I used to think that I wanted to create a portable business so that I could work around my health issues, and also have the flexibility to travel and explore as much as I'd like. I thought it would give me more time to spend with family (when I wanted to - or if they...read more
Sometimes I want to laugh at how bizarre the idea of “freedom” is to me. I chased freedom for so long, believing it was what I wanted, without truly understanding what it was I was looking for. This week I’m playing along with the lovely Natalie Sisson, and I have a...read more
I can't help wondering if my wish yesterday really did come true. I hoped no one would read by blog post, and sure enough, the blog and about page on my site won't load. The only way to read the post is to have a direct link. I couldn't replicate the problem if I...read more
I'll be honest, I'm hoping no one reads this post today. Okay, I always try to be honest, so that's a bit of a silly thing to say, but I really, really would prefer to just stay in hiding. Except that when I'm in hiding, I keep telling myself how much I'd love to be...read more
