Email Marketing is a Practice

Email marketing is a practice. 

It creates a lifestyle that many dream of. 

It allows you to not be tied to your computer. 

It lets you live life on your terms.

How to NOT Become an Influencer ;)

I don't want to be "influenced".

I've subscribed to quite a few email marketers talking about how to make sales via email.

Building a Sustainable Business - Passive Recurring Income Examples

You may know that in February of this year I purposely closed up my membership site and cancelled tens of thousands of dollars of recurring income. It was a BIG deal. That was a BIG leap of faith. 

My family relies on me to help pay the bills so I needed that income but I had huge trust in my abilities to move the dial and recreate that income. Recreate it I did or in large part. 

HOWEVER I've spent the last seven months in a mode of constant SCRAMBLE to earn an income. Every month start…

Are you playing to your skills?

Hey there! Do you feel like you're in limbo right now waiting for 2020 to end? 

It's a weird little week, the one between Christmas and New Years. Some of us are buckling down to get a jump on the new year and some are taking a very well deserved rest.

Today I wanted to talk with you about how LOST I got for the last seven years. 

This just occurred to me this week and it was some sort of freaking epiphany. 

Here's what happened:

I had my daughter Ella in 201…

How to Sell Anything

People think running a business, especially online, is complicated.

It's not.

Giveaway of My New Program: Membership Impact

I made the decision to start a membership so I could have a base of income each and every month that supported my essential bills. This would alleviate the stress of having to hustle just to pay the bills and allow me to do my work abo…
