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…

Two Things You Need for a Sustainable Business

Since my son Hayden was born in 2002 I have been selling things online.

At the beginning of 2020 I joked that I was isolating LONG BEFORE it was cool.

It's not so funny anymore because isolating gets old but working from home, for me, NEVER got old.

I've been teaching others how to sell online or helping them do it through services since 2005! I LOVE showing people how to use the internet to build a lifestyle that they can control.

I have TONS of experience in so many things.

In the ser…

Re: Relationships

Here are some of the things I think that matter most when building a business that stands the test of time (in no particular order):

  • Relationships
  • Consistency
  • Direction
  • Visibility
  • Service
  • Authenticity
  • Accountability
  • Honesty
  • Results
  • Impact
  • Pride
  • Sales
  • Profit

For me, these combined create a business that is profitable, that I'm proud of and that rewards me financially over and over again.

Today I wanted to talk about relationships with you, the first item.

When I firs…

I QUIT Social Media (for 60 days at least).

My daughter is homeschooling this week which means no more beach trips together first thing in the morning. I can't remember if I sent you a pic from last week.

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…

Systems & Processes & Freedom & Stubbornness

I love this photo of me from a business photoshoot in 2019.

I'm kind of iffy about photoshoots because I DO want great photos to use for my business but I don't want anything that looks or feels fake.

This photo is so real, though. We were moving from one spot to another and my photographer just snapped this one as I walked.

It represents so much of what I'm about and love... 

the cup carries a comfort drink and really to me that represents the comfort of ha…

How to Sell Anything

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

It's not.

We're seeing so many local businesses close their doors and it's so tragic and heartbreaking that it's happening on a large scale.

Changes over time often result in business owners having to change and shift. That part is not new.

Entrepreneurs know that people ALWAYS need and and want things and they are willing to exchange money for that, even in times like these.

The only option …

The Confidence to Take Action in Business & Life

Yesterday I downloaded an app to my phone called Reface.

10/10 for fun and enjoyment! I highly recommend.

But this email isn't about the app.

It's about me seeing something that was already there.

Matt always tells me he wishes I were more confident because I'm beautiful and I should own that. And I'm usually like: ok sure I'll work on that babe. (By the way get you one of these kind of people in your life if you can because it's amazing to have people who love and …

Is Creating a Lifestyle Business Worth It?

Two different people told me yesterday in two different ways that they want the advantages of a recurring income business but the work part and the marketing or putting yourself out there part seems sooo overwhelming to them.

I must have put my subconscious mind to work on this because at 4am this morning my head was full of this message. So much so that I had to grab my phone and type it out while still in bed.

I mean this, all of this:

Types of Income for Lifestyle Business Owners

A lifestyle business is a business where you put life FIRST.

You truly own each and every day.

It's a different kind of business than the tradition sense because freedom precedes all other goals and priorities.

In order to make this lifestyle happen you MUST be aware of the kind of business you are creating and then PURPOSEFULLY do what delivers you maximum impact AND time freedom.

Here are the categories I've decided are most important for me:

When I…
