It’s a gorgeous day here in Central Ontario. The sun is out, the air quality seems pretty good, and I’m planning to get out for a walk or something this afternoon. It’s supposed to rain a lot in the coming week, and so I really want to get out today since I’ve missed my walking while all the air quality advisories were in effect this week.
It’s all a part of my master plan to get my s**t together. I woke up this morning, realized that in 20 days this year is going to be half over, and I am nowhere near close enough to my goals to call anything a success yet. I journaled on a plan this morning and let it all run out the end of my pencil. I’m so grateful for these little $7 Digital Notebooks from Fran, because I would feel so guilty using up all that paper!
I do still keep a paper bullet journal too, because I love the feel of a pen in my hand and seeing the words form on the page. But that journal gets about 2 pages a day, whereas the digital journal gets sometimes 10 or more depending on what’s on my mind that day.
But I’m rambling, and this was supposed to be a short newsletter this morning!
So, down to business… Here’s what I have for you this morning…
Today’s Read: 6 Ways to Promote Yourself Without Being Pushy
If you have a business and expect it to succeed, you have to learn to promote yourself. But that age-old stereotype of the pushy salesperson gets in the way for a lot of people, me included.
What do you think of when I say “pushy salesperson?” If you’re like most of the people I know, it’s the stereotype of the use car salesman. That guy on late night tv yelling at the camera about all the great deals he has for you. No one wants to be that salesperson, and it’s a big reason why selling gets a bad rap.
But here’s the thing…
You’re not that person. And if we’re being honest here, most used car salespeople aren’t that person either. There are ways to promote yourself and your products without having to resort to being a pushy salesperson.
Featured Partner Pick Today
Today’s featured pick is the PLR Extravaganza Bundle from Val over at Bundle Bash. I finally got in there to buy it this morning – it ends tomorrow, and I went through the whole list of products and used up a few of those notebook pages I mentioned to make notes about what I want to use first, and what I’m going to do with it all.
Val has put together a great collection of templates and training in this year’s edition. Here’s a few of the goodies that caught my eye this morning:
- Pink and Neutral Sanity Saver Digital Creator Kit from Chaali Seymour
- Plant Based Diet Planner from Sue Fleckenstein
- SelfCare Planner and Workbook from Cecilie Aslaksen
- Be Your Best Self Bundle from Kelly McCausey
- Wellness & Vitality Canva Toolkit from April Lemarr
- AI For Your Printable Shop from Cherina Booker
- Automate Your Online Business from Stephanie Blake
That was more than enough to justify the $47 price tag for me this morning.
Like I said, the bundle ends tomorrow. So if you want to grab a great collection of templates to stock your shop with over the next few months, check it out here…
