It’s another smoked-filled hazy day here in Central Ontario. Yesterday wasn’t too bad because it was pretty windy. But this morning we are back to no wind, and the haze is pretty thick. So, I don’t think I’ll be venturing too far outside my door today.
I was up early again this morning and decided to use the quiet time to go through the 365 Sales System from Kevin Fahey. I’m making it my pick of the day for today because I was absolutely blown away. I told myself I would just start and allow myself 1 hour to get through the training. I ended up spending about two hours and ended up watching 7 modules in one sitting! And I have to say I picked up so many little gems on email marketing, back-end monetization, and even a couple of really good tips on how to use Thrive Themes (and that’s just the beginning).
My next step with everything I learned is to create an action plan and put it all to good use. Of course, I have to finish building the new site first but some of this stuff can be incorporated into it now, right from the beginning.
But before I get down to that this afternoon, here’s what I have for you this morning…

Because one thing I’ve found over the years as a content creator, if you don’t have the ability to put yourself out there and ask for the sale, you can be the best writer or artist in the world, but you won’t have the success you are looking for or deserve.
Here are 8 traits and skills you need to become a successful content creator…
