forget it all …
I no longer want to work at the job that I have, I no longer want to live the life that I’m living, I just want to …. (fill in your blank)
That’s exactly what I did but in a different way.
I was running a business that I thought that I loved. I was just fooling myself.
Yes an online business is a crazy blessing, to be able to even say that I’ve been doing it for 10 years, is well pretty darn cool. That’s 10 years of creating my own information products, blogging, affiliate marketing, buying and selling blogs, you name it, I’ve about done it.
But then I asked myself …. what if?
What would I want to do in this life IF I *completely* chose THE path that I wanted?
My Answer: I would glorify God by taking pictures of theClick here to continue reading

I would like to introduce you to Sandra Dee Robinson, she is here to help you (and me) get over our fear and get video up on our websites.
People need connection with you, your cause and everything that you are doing. It doesn’t matter what type of website, blog or e-commerce site you have, you *need* video (I’m preaching to the choir here).
When it comes down to it, it’s not about YOU anyhow, it’s about those who are waiting & needing to hear your message.
Interview with Sandra Dee Robinson – Charisma On Camera
How Does Someone Get Over The Fear Of Getting Started?
Ranging from absolute paralyzing terror of the lens to negative self-talk and overall-fish out of water feeling, fear can cost you!

Your main goal is to get people to come to your website, to check you out, to explore your message, to be with you and what you stand for.
They also come because they want to improve a certain part of their life.
I’ll give you an example.
I love a certain Christian singer…. I discovered him through a mutual friend.
I am a true fan, he posted a live hangout (before there was a such thing as Google Hangouts) and I joined in to hear what he had to say, not sing, say.
I listen to his music on You Tube, I love his lyrics and I share him all the time with people who I think would get a kick out of him.
I also have a thing for cover bands, if I love a new song that’s out I always look up “cover” afterClick here to continue reading

Baking At 2am, This Actually Happened
I don’t bake.
In fact, if you ask my kids they will tell you that I only make cookies at Christmas time.
However just about a week ago I woke up in the middle of the night and baked a cake. I just felt this incredible desire to bake a cake, so strange and there I was at 2am, making a cake.
I have not baked a cake in YEARS.
The beauty of it was without me knowing my daughter needed a cake for school and I made it just in time for her to bring it. I let her decorate it and away it went.
I couldn’t make sense of it, until I woke up this morning.
It’s When God Wasn’t Even In The Mix

I met the beautiful Nicole Cavanaugh within a business mastermind group out in New York, we instantly connected as friends and is one of the most beautiful people I have ever met.
Nicole decided to gear her business towards what she felt completely called to do … design chemotherapy rooms. Of course, that means the world to me!
I know you will enjoy this interview
When did you first decide to become a designer?
Growing up in Los Angeles, I lived in a home that was charming and quaint, but was rather small and seemed designed for a lifestyle gone by, which was very different from what our needs were.
The rooms were small and we rarely seemed to have space of our own.
We just couldn’t live well in our space the way it was designed and itClick here to continue reading

Tribes Review by Seth Godin – I will draw a name from a hat (or bowl) on Friday February 21st, 2014. Leave a comment below to enter!
This is pretty much one of the best books I’ve ever read when it comes to developing your leadership and creating a movement around your passion.
I’m bold about this — we all need to be using the power of the internet to get the word out about our business & what God is calling us to do.
I get business books mailed to me all the time to review, I have a bunch of them for sure, but when it’s not one that I was interested in reading it makes my work a tad bit boring.
So just before Christmas I attended a webinar on writing and won a $30 Amazon gift card, my initial thought was toClick here to continue reading

There Is At Least One Thing I Know …
The time is now, there is no more time to waste on efforts that don’t change the way people think or prompt people to move and change things.
I know it right to the core of who I am, there is work to be done and it’s time to do it.
I have spent years up to my eyeballs in products, blogs, advertising, marketing, and, and, and.
But the moment I watched my daughter fight to live … well that really did change my life completely.
All I could say was that it was “something else…”
I got off the phone with my closest girlfriend tonight, we spent a good 2 or so hours on the phone. She knows me truly like no one else does in this life.
I expressed to her that I am still uncovering,Click here to continue reading

Social Media How To & Focus To Get ‘er Done!
It’s an incredible day!
I’m sitting here as it’s lightly raining outside listening to John Mayer (who else lol!) with a pumpkin spice candle filling up the room with the most wonderful scent.
It’s really feeling like Fall to me now.
I’m reading through Lynn Terry’s brand new product, Social Marketing Results and I’m absolutely *loving* it!
If you know Lynn, you know she’s a “super affiliate” and has hardly done ANY product creation because it truly takes a lot of effort to do.
Social Marketing Results is amazing mostly because it was put together by one smart cookie (that would be Lynn lol!) who knows her stuff. Her work is based on experience.
I love this because that’s what I like to work with, people who get real results!
