Happy Monday!

It’s been a fun morning so far! I started the morning off by having to unclog my kitchen sinks. And while I’m pretty proud of myself for having done it, man oh man did I miss having Shaun around to do the dirty work for me!

I have a question for you this morning…

“How many success stories do you need to hear before you write your own?” ~ author unknown

I wish I could take credit for coming up with that, but I can’t. I showed up in something I was reading on the weekend, and it was like a punch in the face when I saw that. Because I’m guilty of seeing other people’s success and wishing I could have that, but then not making the changes that I know need to be made in order to write my own success story.

I even said to my coach last week that the longer I’m in this business, the more like a failure I feel most days. And I’m not saying that for sympathy or commiseration, I’m just sharing the truth of the matter with you because that’s what I try to do. Most days I’m pretty confident, but sometimes I really do question what I’m doing and if I’m on the right path. I really wrestled over the weekend to even share this with you, because I know most people want all the good news and all the positive stuff all the time. But that’s not reality – at least not for me. The reality is this business takes a lot of work. And while I love the work, there are days I don’t like it very much. And on those days it gets real hard to show up and be confident and share.

This probably isn’t what you expected to hear this morning… it’s not an “It’s Monday and it’s going to be a great week!” gushy type of message. But it is an “It’s Monday… it IS going to be a great week” because it is the week in which I can write a new success story. And you can too.

It starts with picking one thing that will move you forward and just doing it.

I hope you have a great week ahead, and I look forward to hearing your success stories!

Here’s what I have for you this morning…

One-Pager Money Makers Workshop is the latest offer from Julie Coffman. I bought this earlier this morning and have run through it fairly quickly just to get a feel for what she’s teaching this time out. This is a much simpler training than her big courses, and you can definitely get through the whole thing in one day if you want to.

She’s focusing on creating one-page printables this time, making it easy for beginners to get started and for more experienced people to actually get products created and listed. Here’s what’s covered in the training:

  • The “money maker mindset”
  • Idea generation
  • Easy-peasy research
  • Creating “quick-list” products
  • Producing and publishing
  • Money Maker marketing

I love that she starts with mindset because I really needed to hear what she had to say about that this morning!

The workshop is on sale for only $37 through May 14, and jumps up to $67 after the initial launch period. Check it out here
