It’s a perfect day here in Central Ontario, temperature wise. The only downer is all the smoke coming from the wildfires in Quebec, which is giving things a very other worldly feel here. I can only imagine what it’s like closer to the actual fires.
Over the weekend I sat down and wrote out all the projects I want to work on in June, and then broke all of those down into individual tasks. Since one of the things I’ve learned in six months of accountability coaching is that I can only realistically work for about 6 hours a day on a good day, I’m going to have to pick and choose, and then refine my processes again so that I can get done what absolutely must get done. Another thing I learned is that I have to be kind to myself when the 6 hours just aren’t going to happen – like when I come home from errand running with a massive headache.
So, for today I’m working on the website building and theme creation that should’ve happened yesterday. Now that I’ve figured out how to work with the Thrive Theme Builder, I’m loving being able to create my own themes so that my sites don’t look anything like anyone else’s.
But before I get down to work, I have a few things to share with you.
I don’t know about you, but I find myself gravitating toward a select few content providers these days. I’m also writing more of my own stuff too, but I love using DFY content as a starting point, even if the only thing I use is a title, or a list of bullet points.
I’m also honing in on who I want to learn from. Instead of buying every course out there like I used to do, I’m paying attention to who teaches what I need to learn, and whether or not their teaching style resonates with me.
Featured Partner Pick Today
Today’s featured partner is one of those people I love learning from. Even though I’d been online for a long time before I met her, I credit Angela Wills and her original “laptop lifestyle” membership for helping me to see consistent results and actually start making real, consistent, money online.
Currently, Angela is focusing on teaching Email Marketing with her Email Practice Club membership. I’ve been a member since the day it opened and I love that she teaches a live class every month, plus does weekly pep talks and email prompts. I know that her classes are going to be good every time she announces one, because I’m always like “damn… wish I’d thought of that!” And even though I’ve been doing email marketing for longer than her, I always learn something new because she comes at it from a totally different perspective from what I’ve always done in my own business.
Her latest live class is on Thursday, June 8 at 1 p.m. Eastern and is on Emails 101: The Big Picture on Consistent Email Marketing. In it she’s going to cover:
- Emails 101 – Introduction to Email Marketing.
- How to build your email list – Let’s answer this once and for all.
- Creating email marketing campaigns that convert.
- Maximizing your emails – how to get opens, clicks and sales.
- Email marketing software – choose the best for your business.
- Creating a long-term email strategy to generate lifestyle freedom.
There are two options for accessing the class:
Live training on Thursday, June 8th at 1pm ET.
- Live coaching included in these calls as Angela will answer your questions in real time.
- Recorded class. Can’t make the class – no worries! You’ll get all the training via recorded class in the customer area.
