It’s turned out to be another gorgeous day here in Central Ontario after a very rainy morning. I’m planning to head out for a very quick walk once I get this sent off to you!
The Results are In…
Several people voted in the poll last night, so thank you for that! There ended up being just enough yes votes according to the number I had in mind to make it worth doing the Master Rights for the products in the Ritchie Media Closing Sale. I will start setting those up tonight and you will be able to purchase them tomorrow.
Please keep in mind that these are ADD-ON licenses, meaning that you must already own the product to be able to purchase the license. There will be only 20 Master Rights Licenses available for each product so if there’s something you want, you’ll need to grab those sooner rather than later.
The sale runs through May 31, and that’s when the option to purchase the Master Rights runs out as well.
Today’s Read: 3 Ways Business Systems Set You Free to Create
It all sounds so easy… slap up a website, stick a PayPal button on it, and rake in the cash. And voila! You have a successful online business.
While it might have been just that easy in the beginning (except that when I started 25 years ago there was no PayPal, and getting a merchant account was cost-prohibitive for a lot of people) but it’s not quite that simple anymore. Now you need to be strategic about what you do and how you do it, and that’s where business systems come into play.
It’s not enough anymore just to be creative and put your work on your website and hope it sells. But the problem as I see it – speaking from my own experience here – is that we creative types are great at creating, and not so great at the mundane stuff that feels like work!
You know what I’m talking about right… the bookkeeping, the emailing, the technical stuff, and all those “chores” that have to be done to keep your customers and the tax man happy.
Making the shift into business ownership can be a little scary when the realities of what is expected and required to run the business hits home. While teaching your classes and selling your creations may be the goal, the government and your clients also require you to be able to deliver that service or widget along with excellent customer service and quarterly filed taxes.
That’s where business systems come into play and can set you free to continue your creative processes with a whole lot less stress.
Top Picks This Week
Six Figure Systems from Cindy Bidar
My favorite membership for the past few years has been Cindy Bidar’s Six Figure Systems. As much as I love content, and do have several content memberships as well, the only membership that’s non-negotiable for me is Cindy’s. And that’s because the way she structures her trainings makes it easy for me to focus and follow along and actually get things done.
From today through Sunday, she’s put the membership on sale and you can save 25% off the monthly price. She’s also added an annual option for this sale as well. This is the last time the price will be this low as it’s increasing later on this summer.
So, I should probably tell you what you get inside your members area:
- 33 In-depth business building courses
- 15 checklist and template packs
- 12 Members-only Workshops
That’s what’s waiting for you when you sign up. Then each month you’ll get:
