A Day in the Life of a WAHM

I've often been asked what a typical workday looks like to me.

I've put off answering that. And put it off. And put it off. 

The truth is I've never felt organized enough, disciplined enough or that I have enough GOOD habits to share my typical day with you. 

But maybe that's why I SHOULD share it with you. 

So that's what I'll do today. 

A "day in the life of" a mom, with suspected ADHD (I will go get that confirmed or denied.. eventually ) and an overall "f…

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.

Often it's about how to INFLUENCE people.

Do you want to be influenced?
I don't.

I have huge HUGE resistance to being told what to do.

I get it, the word "influence" as in get people to do what they WANT to do by convincing them they want to do it… influencing them to believing it's their choice.

Influence, Dictionary version:

Life First, Then Business

OK - Let's talk NOT compromising...

There are a lot of people out there selling a lot of stuff and telling you a lot of things you MUST do:

  • Build your website.
  • Blog.
  • Post on social media.
  • Write emails.
  • Create great graphics.
  • Do video.
  • Do webinars. 
  • Get on calls.

There's a time when we're new and we just look for SOMEONE to tell us what to do because we simply don't know. 

The big issue that c…

Breakthrough Moments

This email topic feels big to write about. 

I wrote the subject and then I just kind of sat here thinking for a moment. 

What I want to share with you today is about determination, motivation and, I guess, working for those breakthrough moments. 

I recently had what seems to be a pretty big breakthrough. 

It started by my listening to the audio book "The eMyth Revisited" which I had heard I should read many times over the years but never actually got to doing so. I …

Minimalistic Blogging

This is my third blog post in a row about blogging.

I had a message for bloggers who fill their blogs with ads here.

Then I talked about how this blog is mostly unedited here.

Today I want to talk about how FREEING it is to just blog.

I'm mostly quit social media.

I have one site that I'm in the process of finding a buyer for that has thousands of followers on social media so as much as I'd like to right now I don't feel good about dropping or deleting accoun…

This blog is mostly unedited.

I always thought of a blog to be an online journal.

A stream of thoughts and ideas... sometimes with a point and sometimes not.

A place to practice being a writer.

That's what a blog meant to me.

These days blogs are used in many other ways.

My least favorite way is a blog full of ads.
Then there's the content articles published in blog format.

I've halted my blogging more than a couple of times because I thought I had to do better, be better. Be more …

Business Model: How to Sell a Workshop a Month

Hey... I just meant to record a short video showing you how I use Coach Glue content but I ended up recording a pretty thorough explanation of how I make money selling workshops & downloads. 

How to Sell a Workshop a Month & Build a Recurring Income Business:

It's only 22 minutes long but I think it's so useful you'll want to watch it twice. Maybe put it on double-time the first time so it takes 11 mins, then watch again a…

Minimalist Marketing & Life

Hey .

Minimalism is so attractive, isn't it?

Less stuff.
Less to take care of.
Less to manage.
Less to organize.

When I look at what I've been doing lately there are things that fit minimalism and things that don't.

Things that don't fit:

Mainly I'm thinking what doesn't fit right now is that I want to do a lot of things, as always.

I have and I have made some really good plans for how to kick it up a notch with this…
