Well, it’s freezing cold here in South Carolina, and they’re calling for three inches of snow, followed by a half-inch of ice. Nice. So, it looks like I’ll get plenty of time to snuggle with the kiddos, and try to find some time to get some work done!
I’ve been pretty busy this past two weeks…I meant to post sooner, but didn’t have a chance to sit down and finish a post (I actually started twice, but got distracted and gave up), but I’m here now! (As I write this, my youngest daughter is pulling on my chair, asking me to put her sister’s belt on her tiny little waist…can you see how easy it is for me to get distracted?)
I’ve been working on stuff for clients mostly, but I also achieved something pretty big, for me, anyways. I completed a challenge, which was to create a short infoproduct and put it on sale at JVZoo. I wrote a report of just over 5000 words, and put it on sale for $5. I haven’t sold any copies as of yet, but I’m not worried. If it doesn’t do well, I’ll just find another use for it, but the main thing that has me so excited is the fact that I set a challenge, and completed it successfully, in the timeframe recommended!!!
You may be thinking, “wow, big deal,” but I am super pleased with myself for deciding to do something, and just actually doing it. I get distracted too easily, and focus is crucial to online success. Ergo, I’m taking steps to increase my business’ success!
My product is called Minibook Empire: Building a Kindle Empire One Minibook at a Time. It basically walks you through creating short ebooks in order to make money on Amazon’s Kindle platform. It’s short, easy to follow, and hopefully it will inspire some great successes for people who want to make money writing for a living.
I’m also in the process of changing the name of this blog to one that is just my name. I realize that most marketers do this in order to establish themselves as a brand, and it just makes good sense. Additionally, I’m beginning to feel that my calling as a content creator is leading me to write more about writing for a living, including things like ebooks, Kindle, and PLR. It’s taken a little time, but I’m starting to feel myself really settling into a niche that suits me. I love it!
Before I end this post, I want to give a plug to the product that inspired my product creation. It’s called 10 Challenges by Dennis Becker, and it is AWESOME. Dennis is a guy who has been there, done that, and has the T-shirt when it comes to struggling to make a living online. He’s a genuine, honest guy who always gives you way more than you expect in his products, and he’s just super-motivational. I really recommend that you check his stuff out if you want real advice on making money online.
Okay, I’m off to shower and run to the store to fill up the propane tank before the snow arrives. If we lose power, I’ll be standing in the snow, firing up the grill to cook for the family! Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that…I’m a terrible griller!
