And Happy Easter if you celebrate the occasion.
The sun is shining here and it’s so deceiving, because I opened the window this morning, and got a blast of frigid air! Our temperatures are back in the negatives again today! I’m hoping it warms up a bit so I can get out for a walk and a change of scenery this afternoon for a bit. My eyes are going to need a break from all the tax data.
Here’s your Sunday roundup for today…

Top Picks This Week
Pick #1 – Any Size Image from Amy Harrop
Any Size Image Secrets from Amy Harrop – I picked this up when it launched, and finally had a chance to read through the guide this morning. I picked up some good tips and have a few ideas on how to turn some of my existing products into SVGs for sale. I love how she always finds new resources for her trainings, and this one is no exception. She’s got a number of different tools – both free and paid that you can use to create your own SVGs too.
Pick #2 – Notion Millions from James Renouf
This training is all about using AI to create Notion “Knowledge Templates” you can sell to users. I had a read through this PDF this morning, and have to say I like the way he thinks. The guide starts off making clear that you don’t need to be a Notion expert to do this. He then provides several niches that you could use this product for. He then goes on to show how you can use AI to create the templates themselves. The next part of the guide takes you inside Notion itself and gives you a good idea of what it does and how your templates will fit. He also covers how to set up your templates for sale and what the exact settings should be.
All in all I think it’s an easy way to add another stream of income to your existing products. Like the spreadsheet thing, you can go as simple or as complicated as you like. I use Notion personally for my bundle organization but that’s about it so far.
I’ll definitely be making some of these templates and adding them to my Etsy shop to test out.
Pick #3 – The Speed Blogging AI course from Erica Stone is out now, and I picked it up because I thought it looked interesting. I’m all about upping my affiliate game so am very interested to see what she says and does in this training.
So far, 3 lessons have been dropped – you get 2 a week for 6 months – and I’ve been through the first two. In the first one she gives you exercises to do to get used to using AI tools, and in the second one she addresses a huge elephant that I and many other “old timers” in the content space have seen coming from the beginning.

Have an amazing day! Create what makes your heart happy!
