In case you were looking for ONE MORE THING TO DO (smile).... here is something to consider about your email communications.
Email lists are how you actively reach out to connect with anyone who is interested in what you teach, share, sell, or offer - obvious, right?
As your work grows and diversifies, there are solid reasons for having more than one email list in order to stay connected with people and their needs.
Check out why creating separate email lists is advantageous as you grow your audience - and why it will reduce your unsubscribes because you are staying focused on what your audience needs.

It wasn’t very long ago -- sitting here at this exact same desk -- that instead of feeling excited, passionate, and flooded with opportunity like I am nowadays...
...I felt stuck. Overwhelmed. Unsure of what to do next.
And I don’t say that just to sound dramatic or to win sympathy. There are plenty out there who had it far worse than I did, but that’s really how I felt. Like there was something more for me, yet it remained always outside my reach.
It seems many successful entrepreneurs seem to experience something similar prior to their “big break”.
For me there was no shortage of ideas to pursue, but a shortage of clarity on knowing how to proceed in order to create an online business like I enjoy today.
“Clear as mud” I think the saying is.
So what changed everything for me?
Well two things:
Ultimately I realized that “imperfect action” beats “perfect...
Many of us as healers, spiritual guides, and experts are doing business in new ways as part of the global shift. As we follow our dreams and create our unique path as we go, often times being financially supported becomes up as one of the main priorities on our minds. Will the right clients show up? How do I promote my work without giving it all away? What do I have to do to receive financial abundance?
Your work is bigger than just you, so I have created an online course to support the energy of abundance as you grow your business and help more people. Mastering Abundance In Your Spiritual Business is for anyone who wants to establish their offerings with confidence and get results - is that you?

What is the big secret to sales?
I know that question alone can be uncomfortable, especially for those of us who don't want to be 'sales-y' or feel like we have to manipulate people with the right words in order to get them to buy something from us (YUCK!).
More importantly, how can you generate trust with people?
Your ability to be authentic and real is truly your greatest sales strategy.
One of the hardest aspects of writing a book and putting yourself out there is being on the receiving end of bad reviews. It can rock you or feel like a stab to the heart - but it is part of our world as authors and creators so we have to get stronger with these opinions and the feedback.
Every week, influential indie author Mark Dawson shares excellent advice for authors and writers looking to grow their career.
In this week's Self Publishing Formula podcast, I had the pleasure of speaking with James, Mark's cohost, about 5 types of bad reviews and what to do about them, including:
- Differentiating between a bad opinion and someone who has valuable feedback
- The five different types of negative reviews
- Tips for dealing with each type of review
- Understanding your rights as an author and when to contest a review
- The importance of self-management when dealing with bad reviews
- Relying on the author community and friends we trust for objective opinions
How do you know if you should set up a contract with someone?
If any of these 3 elements are involved in your work project, it would be advisable to have a simple contract in place to help - and protect - each person.
I make it easy for you to determine if it is a good idea in this new Biz Quiz video in the free library.
Publishing one book is a big deal. Publishing MULTIPLE books is a game-changer.
As you continue to publish more books, you will most likely start to see your income improve every month. I saw a reliable rise income in my bank account after I had four published titles. Two of my titles were on Kindle Select and two titles were "wide", which means they were available across multiple book sales platforms (Barnes N' Noble, KOBO, Apple, etc.)
An important factor you need to take into consideration for publishing multiple books includes your genre. There is a big difference between fiction and non-fiction titles, for example.
I hope this video helps with your expectations, long-term planning, and staying motivated to keep writing more content.
