Happy Thursday!

It’s 6:30 a.m. as I’m writing this, and the sun is just starting to come up outside my window. I’ve been up since 5 because I’m trying to get into the habit of getting up earlier and getting more done in the mornings since I always seem to run out of steam by about 2 p.m. I don’t even need an alarm clock because Dan has decided that I should be getting up earlier, and he wakes me up by standing on my shoulder and yowling in my ear! And of course as soon as I’m up and about, he then wanders down to the foot of the bed and goes to sleep for the rest of the morning!

I’ve gotten a lot done so far this morning too, between journaling, a good planning session, and an exercise video so far! And I just opened up my browser, and this was the photo that showed up on my Momentum Dash (you can add your own photos in the plus version) this morning…

beach at Port Hope

This makes me so happy. This is one of my favourite photos of the beach where I go walking whenever I can. I haven’t been there in quite awhile, but this is very near to where my dream beach house is, and I think having it show up randomly on my dashboard this morning is a great sign and a great reminder that there is magic at work in my life, and that by being intentional with it I can and will get to where I want to be sooner rather than later.

Here’s what I have for you this morning…

Today’s Read: 6 Ways to Give DFY Content Your Voice

One of the best things you can do when using DFY content is to give it your own voice. This does three things for you:

1. It differentiates your content from others using the same content

2. Depending on how much you change, it can render the DFY content unrecognizable

3. It allows you to shine as the expert.

As someone who has used a lot of DFY content over the years, I’ve experienced this first hand. And being able to create blog posts and products that no one can tell come from DFY content really does make a huge difference in the success of that content.

One of the reasons for that is this:

Popular blogs, courses, and other content have a definite ‘voice’. They are infused with personality and there’s a tone in the content that resonates with their audience.

But how do you get that personality from DFY content when the majority of it is written in generalities and has no personality or voice?

When you consider that the whole purpose of DFY content is to give you a base to start with, the fact that it has no voice is intentional. It’s not going to sound like you or have your energy, because that’s the part the YOU are supposed to bring to the equation.

Here are 6 things you can do to give your DFY content your voice:
