And Happy Mother’s Day to everyone celebrating today!
It’s been an interesting week here. If you missed the big announcements on Friday, I am moving in a different direction with my business. But to do that I feel like it’s necessary to close a few doors so that I have room to open the new ones. So, to that end here’s what’s happening:
1. Effective immediately the Coloring Patterns Monthly membership is closed.
2. The Birthday Bash Bundle Sale has been cancelled.
I’ve wanted to go in this different direction for a couple of years now, but I was trying to do that at the same time as hanging on to the existing business model because I was too scared to take the leap.
But it’s become increasingly clear over the past few months that I can’t do that. So the doors have to be closed so I can move on. I had to take that leap and trust that the Universe has my back.
Does this scare the heck out of me? You bet it does… especially cancelling the bundle sale because that’s been the biggest influx of cash in my business during the year. But it’s a comfort zone, a safety net, and a security blanket all rolled into one.
There is one more door to close and I’ll be announcing that on Tuesday, so stay tuned.
On that note, here’s what I have for you in this week’s roundup…
Top Picks This Week
Ends Today!! One-Pager Money Makers Workshop is the latest offer from Julie Coffman. I bought this earlier when it went live on Monday and have run through it fairly quickly just to get a feel for what she’s teaching this time out. This is a much simpler training than her big courses, and you can definitely get through the whole thing in one day if you want to.
She’s focusing on creating one-page printables this time, making it easy for beginners to get started and for more experienced people to actually get products created and listed. Here’s what’s covered in the training:
- The “money maker mindset”
- Idea generation
- Easy-peasy research
- Creating “quick-list” products
- Producing and publishing
- Money Maker marketing
I love that she starts with mindset because it’s something that a lot of people – me included – need to hear.
The workshop is on sale for only $37 through May 14, and jumps up to $67 after the initial launch period. Check it out here
Ends Today!! ADHD Planner Templates from Sue are available and on sale this week. Use coupon code ADHD through Sunday, May 14 to save $5. The pack includes 3 different planners: Junior, Teen, and Adult versions. There are a total of 95 layouts across the 3 different planners and they come in both PPT and Canva formats. You can see all the page layouts and flip book views of the planners on the sales page.
I’ll be picking these up for myself to edit and add to my shop.
Ends Tomorrow!! The Power Planner Mega Pack from Rayven at Color Monthly is on sale this week through Monday, May 15. I just love these mini “power planners” and Rayven has bundled up 20 of them – all with a spiritual theme – for this particular mega pack. Each individual planner includes:
- A to do list page
- A 2-page weekly spread
- A tracker wheel
- A goals page
- An undated monthly calendar page
You can also choose from just the black and white coloring planner version ($27) or the combo version that gives you both the coloring pages and the full colour pages as well ($47).
You can tell that my mind is on Julie’s training, because looking at this all I’m thinking about is how many one page money makers you can create and list with this bundle!
Pretty Printables is Kate Danielle’s course on creating printables in Canva. I’ve been following Kate for awhile now and love both her products and her teaching style. In this course you’re getting 6 modules with over 30 lessons that will take you from getting started with Canva to creating several different types of products to sell.
I find myself doing more and more in Canva these days, and I’m looking forward to going through the entire course and creating new products for my Etsy shop with it. I feel like this is going to be perfect for creating product that fit in with Julie’s One-Pager Money Makers training too.
