And Happy First Day of Summer!
The warm weather sure took it’s time getting here, but it’s been absolutely gorgeous outside for the past few days. I walked over to the farmer’s market this morning in search of scones to go with my soup, but I guess I left it too late… there were only dessert scones left at all the booths… the savoury stuff was long gone! It was so nice to be out in the sunshine and be around people again for a bit. I really don’t get outside enough these days.
Here’s what I have for you today…
Today’s Read: 5 Quick Ways to Boost Motivation
Do you need to find ways to boost motivation in order to get your projects finished… or even started?
Picture this: You’ve got a project you need to get started on. You’ve been putting it off for days, or even weeks, and now you’re on a really tight deadline. Sound familiar?
You’d think that the threat of missing your deadline would be enough to get you moving, wouldn’t you? But too often, even knowing the consequences of not finishing on time aren’t enough to motivate you to get to work. It’s just too easy to keep procrastinating instead.
Fortunately, there are ways to boost motivation and get your mojo back when your usual routine isn’t doing it for you.
This Week’s Featured Partner Picks
Email Results Challenge from Angela Wills is my featured pick for today.
I’m super stoked about this challenge that starts on July 1 and runs all the way through Q3 to September 30. This is a challenge focused on getting results for people who already have a list and want to grow it and make sales from it. I’m going to be working on building a brand new list in Q3 so that I can run some case studies and change formats, and this is perfect for me to be able to do that.
Here are the challenge details:
- Starts July 1st and runs to September 30th, 2023.
- Costs $80 and you earn 45% commissions.
- OR free with Email Practice Club, also 45% recurring commissions.
- Includes Challenge PDF Guide, Cohort Facebook Group, Accountability and Draws for Prizes for Action Takers.
- It’s gonna be so fun!
And I can definitely attest to the fun part! Angela has an amazing, vibrant community and everyone is always so helpful there. And people stick around! Friends I made in her very first challenge I participated in years ago, are still some of my best friends and collaboration partners online.

Monday’s Featured Pick!! I am so stinkin’ excited to share today’s featured partner pick with you! I got a review copy and went through it over the weekend, and am so impressed with Julie’s new “Shop in a Box” Mindful Wellness content, that I’ve decided to do a bonus recording for you and show you how I’m going to repurpose it all to create products for my brand new personal-use printables shop! (I’ll be recording that bonus in the next day or two, and will upload it to the warrior plus dashboard when it’s ready.)
This pack includes 51 pages of themed worksheets and templates all designed to help your customers achieve their health and wellness goals. Julie’s got just about every aspect of health and wellness covered on some level, from fitness to meal planning, self-care, mindset, and more. I can’t wait to start working with these and get them repurposed for my own shop!
