Overcome the Fear… Make $500

Overcome the Fear... Make $500 I'm sitting here, on the night of October 17, 2012, with a glass of wine in my hand, and a smile on my face. Today has been a BIG day for me. It's been an overcome the fear, and celebrate like crazy day. Funny how when I try to think of where to start, overcoming the fear and the celebration are so tied together and twisted up it's hard... but you've got to start a story somewhere right?

The sky is falling. The sky is falling. Again. They're calling it Googageddon this time around. Yep, it's Labor Day weekend here in the states and it's about time for another google update.

I just got tired of having to spend more time trying to figure out how to "fix" what Google changed, than being able to write and share. I started … [Read more...]

You Can’t Get a Babysitter If You’re a Hermit

Reach-Out-Hand

Note from Jackie: I wrote this post almost 2 years ago... and yet it's even MORE true now than it was then. We're in the middle of this creating your product series. I thought I'd be able to think of ways you could sell your first product without having a "community". I could only think of one. Warrior Forum special offers. Unless your product is in the IM niche (which I don't recommend) that's not going to work.  I don't think I've seen any products on "How to care for your horse" sell or … [Read more...]

At every step of the process you want to have in the forefront of your mind "what's in it for them"... them being your reader. The problem … [Read more...]
