Welcome to your Wednesday Roundup on Thursday!
So, last night I did a thing. I just couldn’t bring myself to do a newsletter yesterday because I was feeling pretty down, and I try not to let you see that too much. Because even though you know, and I know, that life is not always all roses and sunshine, no one likes to be seen as a whiner. So when I get to that point where I can’t think of something sunny to say or do, I’d almost rather not write.
I’m a firm believer that your energy shows up in your words on the screen, and I’m very conscious of that. Even though I’m not afraid to let rip once in awhile if something’s really bothering me (and if you’ve been here for any length of time, you know I get some good rants in every so often!)
So, I’ve been listening to a lot of Mel Robbins on YouTube lately, and she says that when you’re feeling overwhelmed or overthinking things, just do one thing to move yourself forward. So that’s what I did last night.
Instead of forcing myself to write a newsletter that my heart wasn’t in, I shut everything down and went and did some keyword research for my new project. One thing to move forward. Which turned into three amazing exact match domains that I can use to funnel traffic to the main project site. Another step forward. And with what I found last night; I can make a much more coherent plan for taking even more steps forward.
Today’s step is going to be sorting my PLR and template content so that I can start building the products. I’ve decided, rightly or wrongly, that I want 10 products and 10 blog posts ready to go for launch so that I can share a 100% completed site right from the start.
But before I get to that, here’s what I have for you today…
The Stock Your Shop Flash Sale Ends Tonight!
It’s hard to believe how fast the weeks fly by these days. Today is the last day to save on the 3 Stock Your Shop Workshops.
If you haven’t seen any of my workshops before, what you’ll find in each of these is ideas on how to take a package of DFY content – in these ones, there are mandalas, affirmations coloring pages, and digital papers – and turn it into all sorts of different products that you can use to stock your shop. And it doesn’t have to be an Etsy shop. Use what you create to sell on your own site, or for content upgrades that go with your blog posts, etc. My whole aim with these types of workshops is to get you thinking about how many different ways you can use that package of DFY content you bought, or got as a freebie, or in a bundle…
The three workshops you can choose from for $10 each, or grab all 3 in a bundle for $27 are:
- Stock Your Shop – Mandala Edition
- Stock Your Shop – Positive Prints Edition
- Stock Your Shop – Digital Papers Edition
Check them out here: Stock Your Shop Workshops
