It seems like the pursuit in life is all about figuring out what we are passionate about. It can feel like the purpose behind our life is to figure out what the one thing we want to do forever is. Some of us find it earlier than others. I know people who knew in kindergarten what they wanted to be and were passionate about and are still passionate about.
Some are still waiting to find that one thing they can devote their life to. They have no idea how to find it. Personally, I'm in the second category. I've been pursuing my passion for as long as I can remember. So far, it's stayed ahead of me and I haven't been able to catch up to it long enough to even figure out what it is. Read More
Everybody knows goals are a big deal. As the new year gets underway, making goals is on everybody’s mind. We’ve been told goals can help us succeed and can help make our lives better. I fully believe this. Having goals can truly make your life better, but only if you focus on completing these goals throughout the whole year. So how do we make these life changing goals? Read More

There are many aspects to a business. We’ve talked about many of them on here. I’ve found that the best way to handle dealing with all of them is by putting them into a notebook. It can be a physical or virtual notebook, but I’ve found that having everything in one place helps me keep track of everything that is important to me and that I need to follow up on. I have a few supplement software tools that I use to keep me on track and in case I can’t have my notebook with me, but for the most part, it’s all included in one notebook. Read More
We talked about beefing up your newsletter list a few weeks ago. It was a simple system that front-loaded your subscription numbers, but didn’t really give you those dedicated, ideal audience members. Now I want to talk about how to get around to sending emails full of value and content that is going to attract those members. If you get nothing out of this post at all, I want you to get this: your newsletter needs to be the most valuable thing you produce (aside from courses). Read More
Blogging takes a lot of work. Not only is there the writing and the picture taking, there’s also the social media and marketing side. With everything you’re doing in terms of promoting yourself, it can seem difficult to find time to actually get everything written. I decided to help myself with this, using the National Novel Writing Month challenge to get a bunch of writing done early and get a blog reserve to pick and choose from.
If you have no idea what the National Novel Writing Month challenge is, check out their website. Also, since it takes me forever to write National Novel Writing Month over and over, I’m going to use the nicknames they give it - NaNoWriMo or NaNo, depending on how I feel. If you didn’t check out the website, it’s basically a month long challenge to get you to write 50,000 words. The goal is to help you get a novel written within a month. Read More
