Happy Wednesday!

It’s been a very quiet day here. I’ve been head down, trying to work on my taxes all day so haven’t done much of anything else up until now. I didn’t even get out for a walk today, because I woke up feeling pretty crappy this morning. I’m feeling a lot better now… been drinking lots of tea and trying to stay calm all day. I’m pretty sure I’m just feeling out of sorts because of this tax stuff, and everything will be much better once it’s all done!

But for now, here’s what I have for you in today’s Wednesday Roundup…

From the Archives: Got Creator’s Block? 5 Common Reasons Why It Happens

As a creative business owner, you know that your creativity is a huge key to your success. After all, it’s what you’ve built your business around. But, if you’re like me, then there are times when creator’s block rears its head. Your creativity just doesn’t flow, it’s like pulling nails to create new content, and you’re just not sure why.

That sad truth is there’s no one answer for everyone. Creativity is a complex and individual thing, and there could be several reasons why you might be feeling blocked.


From the Archives: Got Creator’s Block? 5 Common Reasons Why It Happens

As a creative business owner, you know that your creativity is a huge key to your success. After all, it’s what you’ve built your business around. But, if you’re like me, then there are times when creator’s block rears its head. Your creativity just doesn’t flow, it’s like pulling nails to create new content, and you’re just not sure why.

That sad truth is there’s no one answer for everyone. Creativity is a complex and individual thing, and there could be several reasons why you might be feeling blocked.

Here are 5 common reasons for creator’s block, and how you might deal with them:

Reason #1 – Focusing too much on the end goal

It’s good to have a goal and something to work toward, but it can also be a block when you’re creating something new. If you’re too attached to what you think the end result should be, you’re not present in the creative process and it’s hard to come up with something new.

Instead of being overly focused on the end result, allow yourself to focus on the process and enjoy the flow of creative energy instead.

PLR ON SALE! Mindset Reset from Coach Glue is one of my favorite products of theirs. It’s on sale this weekend through Thursday, August 31 for only $77 (reg. $297) with promo code 77.

The reason I love this so much is that it’s not a generic mindset workshop. It’s geared toward entrepreneurs and designing your business to work for you to keep you from feeling trapped and miserable. And I know I’ve been there before… and I’m sure you probably have too at some point. This is a great course to “learn and turn” by using it for yourself, as well as sharing it with your audience.

Here’s what your customers will learn from the content:

  • Get past self-defeating habits like procrastination–even if they’ve never been able to get past them before.
  • Make a commitment to changing what isn’t working for them–and this time, finding what really does.
  • Determine what’s toxic in their business, their relationships and their own mindset–and what they need to ditch, delegate or simply look at differently.
  • Gain more emotional energy to deal with everything in business and life (and physical energy if they want it, too!).
  • Do more with their business–while simultaneously taking more time for themselves.
  • Experience a massive uptick in gratitude, joy and fulfillment from their business–even if right now they can’t think of a single reason to stay self-employed.

NEW! Love Your Life PLR from Jason is on sale this week. This lead magnet pack includes:

  • 8185+ Word Report You Can Give Away
  • Mobile Ready Lead Capture & Delivery Pages
  • Professional Product Image Graphics
  • Editable Source Files Included
  • Fully Rebrandable PLR Rights Included

  • Part I: Traffic and Branding with AI Assistance
  • Part II: AI for Customer Connection and Strategic Collaboration
  • Part III: AI-Driven Insight and Innovation
  • Part IV: AI-Enhanced Monetization and Revenue Growth

You can see the full breakdown of what’s included in this package on the sales page.
