Help!! I think the sky is falling outside my kitchen window…the thing sticking up is a tree that we lost during the last hurricane a few years ago…yeah, well I’ve been busy since then so it’ll have to wait a few more months…wait in line!!!

ugh!

I’m going to take cover!!

Would you ever write an ebook?? Well, you should!

I see the light! I am able to move forward!

All the hours of research have landed me in several opportunities and I love that I will be able to share those with you.

First of all, I am writing an ebook! It is exciting and the crazy thing is that I am almost done! I have so much to say and for someone like me who likes to talk…eh…well, it was pretty easy! 🙂 Amazing what I can accomplish when I leverage others’ skills to help me with the stuff I can’t learn how to do!! There is just too much technology out there and honestly, I don’t like it that much! I would rather spend my time helping and sharing with you all!! OR y’all as we say down here in the south!

I want to invite you to a special call with my friend and colleague, Ellen Violette who is an expert at helping people overcome their fears and challenges writing ebooks.  It’s called 3 Days to eBook Cash Workshop and it’s powerful! Because I went thru the workshop, I have a first rough draft done of my ebook and I worked on it one day!

What is the 3 Days to eBook Cash Workshop?
The 3 Days to eBook Cash Workshop is an online training and coaching program where Ellen takes students through the process of writing an ebook in 72 hours or less with just 12 hours of writing time, finishing and publishing it, and marketing it the fastest and easiest ways possible so they can start making money as quickly as possible.
This program is designed specifically for people who are busy and don’t want to spend weeks, months or even years writing a book! It’s also great for people who have tried other methods and failed to write an ebook because this workshop works!
Ellen teaches people how to figure out what their core message is and how to promote it in their ebooks.
This process can also be used to write books, articles, special reports, and to create teleseminars, webinars and videos.

And next Monday, March 31st, you can watch her in action!
On this call, she’ll help authors bust through their challenges in just minutes in real time!

Brick Wall – technology and branding

Several times during my journey to begin monetizing my ideas, I have hit brick walls.  Have you hit a wall yet in your journey?

My two walls have been a ‘Technological Wall’ and a ‘Which Way Do I Go Wall’.  One I can get help for, the other…it’s all me.

With all the technology that is emerging and all the choices out there for getting your message out and building your site and making it better and closing gaps and streamlining, etc, etc, etc…I have to admit, I threw in the towel and hired someone to help me! I could’ve spent days and hours learning the systems and baby stepping my way thru, but time is money and I don’t have the time for that learning curve! I have learned quite a bit with the steps I did take on my own, but let’s face it, I don’t LOVE to figure out how to work things! I just want them to work FOR me! So I laid down some more money and took that off my plate! Now I’m free to use my time for more worthy things, like getting thru my NEXT brick wall!!! UGH!

Now, with all the ideas swimming around in my head, I have to get one nailed down and own it! I have talents and skills, but what do I want to help others do? How am I going to brand myself? Is this the MOST important question I have right now…YES! I can’t polish my profile, market myself OR begin creating materials if I don’t know what products or services I’m going to sell! I know what I’m good at…question is, how am I going to bundle that up and market it? Or do I need to narrow my field? What is my ‘field?’ Is that some arbitrary line in the sand that I need to draw in order to invite people to come over to my side? The more I think about it, even though everything under the sun has been done, I have to put a twist on it! I need to put my personality into whatever it is I choose to do.  I’m me and there’s no one like me and that will appeal to some and others, not so much.

Having said all of this – it’s about time for me to get serious with my new brand.  Soon I will have to do something with this blog and start using my new website! I will let everyone know when I launch it and would really welcome and invite you to comment! I may continue to tell the story in this blog as I go along.  Ultimately, I think it will be helpful for me to have my journey documented and to inspire others as they see my success…remember, whatever that is for you maybe different for me.

Even though I am not delivering all of the details regarding how I’m doing what I’m doing, my hope is that I will inspire like-minded people to get your ‘thing’ making money for you! Soon I WILL be able to release details that will help you practically.  Until then, keep gathering ideas and we’ll put it to work in the next few weeks! There’s so much opportunity out there and I will LOVE to present them to you and help you live the life you desire!

The mediocrity train is about to be DERAILED!!

How high can I jump?

So today I took another big step toward my business. I wasn’t planning on taking a big step today but it needed to be done. Do you ever feel like you are spinning your wheels wasting time when you could be doing something way more productive? Sometimes in your own business you need to make some tough calls. One of those tough calls involve laying down some more cash. However, if you see it as an investment then it is definitely not a waste.
I am learning so much about leveraging my time. And time I don’t have.
Again, there have been many influencers in my decision-making process and two of those influencers’ names are Darren Rowse and Pat Flynn.
In the beginning I knew nothing about making money blogging. When I literally stumbled across both of these gentlemen I was still in my diapers. Now I can say that I have at least graduated to romper room.
I have a long way to go and have many things on my to do list. I am now able to wait on the things that won’t make me money and proceed with the things that will be profitable. Half of the learning curve involves knowing what to put my energies toward and which things to table for now.
As an encouragement to anyone who is looking for a better living, I can say that it can be done. It may seem very overwhelming in the beginning but things do start to get clear and your decisions more strategic.
I guess you could say I can see the light and I am excited about teaching others to do what I’m doing. I will discuss that in the next few posts.
Also coming soon the new rollout with many different opportunities that I would like to share!
Business is so exciting and being the owner of the business is even more exciting!

Love the ride or get off the roller coaster!

Honing in and maintaining…

As I tweak my blogs to where I want them, I am seeing the lifecycle of my business unfold.  In the beginning when I was not sure about anything, I did a LOT of research! I mean a LOT! I started by just Googling things like “blogging for money” and “make money from my blog”.  I didn’t know there was so much info out there on the subject! However, after I went to many different sites and blogs on the subject, I honed in on a few.  The few I chose simply appealed to me for the following reasons:

1. I saw success. I want to learn from people who are or have been successful – and right now, my definition of ‘successful’ is the bottom line.  Because of my desire to make this my stream of income, I need to see that others have made a living doing this.

2. They appear honest.  When they share information with the public about their successes, they are being transparent about failures as well because they too are on a journey to learn more.  I don’t want to learn from someone who believes they have conquered it all and has already arrived.  I want to learn from the mistakes that have been made but can’t if they don’t talk about them! I want to learn from someone real and taking this ride of life like I am.
Having said that, in my next post I will acknowledge the 2 people I have chosen to follow .
I will talk about them as well as a couple of practical steps I’ve taken to get started in my business.
As always I welcome comments. Whether you’re a pro watching me spread my fledgling wings or if you are behind the learning curve I’ve already been thru. Thanks!
