Artists – Don’t Make These Marketing Mistakes

Artists – Don’t Make These Marketing Mistakes

In order to make a living from your art, it is important to develop some online business and marketing skills. While this might sound like a something you do not find much interest in, I highly suggest that you should reconsider your viewpoint, in order to take your artistic creations from a mere hobby to a sustainable way to make a living.

  1. Making art without considering your target audience. While it is wonderful to make art, based on inspiration, rather than on thinking about who might want to purchase it, if you have a particular target audience in mind, you can create according to what they would potentially purchase, and work to deliberately create the emotional response that they are looking for. While this might not be something you have ever considered before, you should embrace the fact that making a living from your art is similar to creating a product. It needs to fulfill a need, and value to your intended audience.
  2. Using social media only to talk about your own art pieces. In order to create a following, showcase your art and products, you need to engage people on social media. Social media is mostly social, once you have quality followers that care about your opinion and voice, you can begin selling them your art pieces, but never span – keep your content to 20 percent your own work 80 percent valuable information and social interaction related to your niche and target audience
  3. marketing for artists, marketing tipsNot learning basic business principles. Again, if you are a hobby artist, who only makes art because they enjoy creating art, disregard this. But because you are reading this article, I am going to assume that you want to make money off your art. Therefore, learning basic online business practices, such as how to set up and market a website, how to use social media efficiently, how to write a business plan, and how to build a following (as well as many other aspects), is essential.
  4. Not utilizing communities and forums. For every niche, every type of art, there are online communities out there to be discovered. Research forums and communities for an artist, as well as those who appreciate art, and get active. Not only will you learn from more experienced artists on how to make money, but you will get emotional support.

Use Tumblr to Create Affiliate And eCommerce Sales: 5 Tips

Tubmlr tips, affiliate marketing, eCommerce, sales, marketing tips

Is your target audience a millennial? Then you should not overlook the power of Tumblr to create affiliate commissions and eCommerce sales.
But in order to succeed on that platform, consider a few points, to effectively navigate on this unique platform.

1. Tumblr is a micro-blogging platform.
Essentially this means, you should not try to use it for long-form content, but rather create visual, short, and entertaining content that is easily shareable and grabs the attention of your reader instantly.

2. Tag your images properly
If you are still not using the alt tags on your images, you are doing yourself a disservice. This is even more important on a visual platform such as Tumblr. Always describe your images effectively in order for them to be picked up on Google images.

3. Proper amount of tags
Like Instagram, there is an appropriate amount of tags to be used for each post. For twitter it is three, for Instagram it is up to 30, and in Tumblr, the perfect amount is 7 to 12 hashtags. Any amount above that is considered spam.

4. Choose your name wisely
Spend some time on deciding which name fits your brand the best, but also speaks to your audience. I highly suggest that you look through the most popular Tumblr, and see what types of names work best with the millennial audience. If you are not a part of that age group yourself, I also suggest that you should run the idea by a few millennial friends, or your do a survey on one of your social media platforms that mainly focuses on this age group in order to find the perfect name for your brand.

5. Connect emotionally
Your audience is not looking for a constant display of items they should be purchasing, but rather an emotional connection with your content. Make them care about what you write about the content you promote and most importantly make them care about your opinion. Give them a reason to choose to go to your Tumblr over all of the other ones out there. The best way to do that is to evoke strong emotions.

Get Money And Discounts With Referrals – Make Money From Home

Referral programs are similar to affiliate programs in which you are receiving a commission by sharing a link. Just like affiliate programs, you can add this link to your content, or send it via social media, or email marketing campaigns.  Unlike affiliate marketing you do not get a percentage, but a flat fee per referral, and in some cases like Ebates extra bonuses for referring a specific amount of referrals.

Other referrals allow you to receive brand credit, which you can then use to purchase products from the promoted company. If you use this technique wisely, you can get quite a few free products you would usually buy anyway. Membership on all of these companies are free, and the only payment info you enter are to get paid or to purchase products (like with the Honest Company)

My Favorite Referal Companies

Ibotta: Ibotta is a savings app, that allows members to receive a rebate on normal household purchases, at grocery stores, and large retailers. I love this app because it allows me to save money on food, such as eggs, milk, and bread, as well as other household items. It is easy to use, simply scan the barcode of the products you purchased, as well as the receipt of your purchase, and you can get up to 5 Dollars on an item. This adds up quite quickly, especially in larger households, and we save an average of 90 Dollars a month with this app. Now as a referral program, you will get 5 Dollars per person you refer, which is easy to do, considering that it is an easy sell. Who does not like money back? Ibotta pays out via PayPal, and you can request a payment made to you once you hit the 20 Dollar mark. You will receive your money usually within 48 hours.

Now as a referral program, you will get 5 Dollars per person you refer, which is easy to do, considering that it is an easy sell. Who does not like money back? Ibotta pays out via PayPal, and you can request a payment made to you once you hit the 20 Dollar mark. You will receive your money usually within 48 hours.

Ebates: Ebates does not work for groceries, but gives you rebates for all of the other stuff we need to buy, from clothing on Amazon to items at Walmart. The offers change often, so you should install the chrome extension to get the latest deals. Ebates also gives you 5 Dollars for referring someone and often has bonuses if you reach a certain amount of referral. Again, this is an easy sell, because you are giving the opportunity to save, and receive cash back while shopping for everyday items.

The Honest Company: If you are looking for sustainable and organic products for your household, The Honest Company has you covered. Not only can you purchase truly awesome personal care products, cleaning items, and other items that are cruelty-free and green, but you can also earn 20 Dollars of store credit for each referral. Considering that they have a wonderful selection of high-quality products, this is a win-win. Oh, and you can offer, as well as take advantage of their free trial of their subscription boxes.

Fusion Cash: This site is a survey site, that allows you fill out surveys as well as print out coupons to make a  few extra dollars each month. I hope everyone is aware that surveys alone will never make anyone rich, but they are a fun hobby which can bring in a few dollars every month to cover the extras. Fusion Cash has also a referral program that allows you to make money in 3 different ways:

Refer a friend who confirms his/her email address: $1 bonus
Your friend completes his/her first offer: $2 bonus
Your friend cashes out: $5 bonus (each and every time they cashout – for life)

There are quite a few more referral programs out there, which can earn you cash and free products. I truly think that this type of earning potential should be explored alongside affiliate marketing to make the most out of your passive earning potential.

Question: Have you ever tried rebate sites like Ebates and Ibotta?

How Book-Bloggers Make Money: Blogging 102 Series

How Book-Bloggers Make Money

Hi, everyone! I have received many questions about how bloggers make money, especially when it comes to niche blogging, so I decided to create a series called “Blogging 102”, to answer these questions. I am looking forward to sharing with you the tips and tricks I have collected over the last 5 years of blogging – yup, it has been 5 years now, wow!
Blogging 102 posts will come live every Friday!

Let’s get started with Book Blogging, shall we?

Book blogging can be a lot of fun for people who love to read and write. I am one of those people who can not imagine my life without having books accessible to me. But is it possible to turn your hobby, and the love for words into a  business? It is!

Want to know how book bloggers make money? Then read this! #amreading #books #blogging Click To Tweet

Where to get the books from?

While you can always buy books yourself, and as my ever growing collection of digital and physical books shows, I do
this quite often. However, when reviewing books on a regular basis, this can get rather expensive. Therefore utilizing
the power of the internet, and the need for Authors to receive reviews, it is possible to get your supply of books filled
without spending a dime.

Netgalley
Netgalley is my favorite place to find great books to review. This platform connects publishers and Authors with professional readers, who in return for receiving books, leave reviews on the site itself, and on their blogs. All books are received digitally, either via a download or directly to your Kindle. There are some books that you can read right away, others need to have the publisher give you the green light. You will then receive a notification and can download the book.

It's a beautiful thing when a career and a passion come together - read more here! #business… Click To Tweet

Kindle Unlimited
While not completely free, (it costs 9.99 a month for this Amazon service), you can read an unlimited amount of books that are offered through the program. Not all Kindle books are, but there are quite a few high-profile Authors who choose to list their books on Kindle Unlimited, for which they will receive pay per read. You can “borrow” up to 10 books at a time, which is plenty, and review these books.

Directly from Authors
Authors are always looking for reviews for their books, and you can receive them directly from the creator via two ways.
1. Ask the Author directly. Send them a message and ask them directly to review their book for them. Many will be happy to give you a copy of their book. This is a great way to establish a relationship with Authors and gain a reputation as a person to go to.
2. Authors contact you. After reviewing a few books for a variety of Authors, many times, you will find yourself contacted by them directly. Reliable book bloggers are not as easy to come by, as many might think, so you can position yourself well, by creating high-quality reviews.
3. Facebook groups.
This is not my favorite way of receiving books because you have to wade through a ton of books who are poor quality, and some even plain awful, and unprofessional. You can get lucky but try the other options first.

How To Monetize Your Book Blog

1. Affiliate links (Amazon and otherwise). If you become a member of the Amazon Affiliate program (they are called Associates), you can use an affiliate link within your reviews. Many people reading a book blog, are ready to purchase something to read  right away, and you can take advantage of that fact by linking them directly to the books listing. How cool is that!  Of course, there are other companies and publishers besides Amazon you can utilize. Target, Walmart, Barnes and Nobels, Dover Publishing are just a few sites, that you can use for your book links.
2. Highlight the benefits of the Kindle Unlimited program. Another Amazon Affiliate perk is that you can make money each time someone signs up for Kindle Unlimited if they are using your blog link. It is a great program that is easy to promote, which means cash flow!
3. Google Adsense. Adding Google Adsense to your blog is probably the first thing that most people think off when they consider making money off blogging in general. While this is not exactly the most lucrative way of making cash, it is one you should consider. However, I personally do not use Google Adsense in any of my blogs, no matter what niche, because it is simply a less attractive option than other ways of monetization.
4. Youtube videos. Connecting a youtube vlog to your actual written blog strategy, however will give you another way  of utilizing the power of Google Adsense. In that case, that option is much less intrusive, and it is how a lot of YouTubers make money. Also, adding videos to your blog posts, makes them more likely to be shared, and gives you additional exposure. Do not overlook the power of youtube videos, even for book blogging!
5. Sponsorships. Larger book bloggers, and those who participate in Influencer Networks (more on that in another post),  will sometimes be contacted by companies, publishers and editors to review a product or book for payment. This can range from a few dollars to a more lucrative pay, but largely depends on the size of your blog following as well as your social media presence. If you are a small blogger, you can expect to get less sponsored posts, but that also depends on your book niche. Which brings me to my next point:

Choose a narrow book niche!

In order to monetize your book blog more effectively and increase your chances of finding targeted sponsors, you should narrow your book blog down to a specific sub-niche. Examples of that would be “young adult”, “contemporary romance”, ‘crime books”, or “cookbooks”, “health and fitness books”, and so forth.
You can also utilize the power of book blogging by combining it with a  broader subject blog, which is what I do for 3 of my current blogs. You will see me highlight business books here on this site, healthy living books on my site Happy Health And Herbs, and budgeting, organization and productivity books on my site “Save Money, Save Time, Succeed!”.

If this info got you interested in starting a book blog but you have no idea where to start, check out the Wealthy Affiliate training program, which includes free WordPress hosting for your blog. You will learn how to set up your blog, how to choose your niche, anything you need to know about making money via affiliate marketing, as well as social media  marketing and more.

What The Heck Is A MLM Business?

 

What The Heck Is A MLM Business?

If you are looking for online business opportunities, the chances that you come across the term MLM are rather large. MLM’s are everywhere, but to a person to the online business world, this leaves one very large question: What the heck is an MLM business?

What Is A MLM Business?

MLM stands for Multi Level Marketing, which pays their entrepreneurs mostly via two strategies – selling products or  services, AND by recruiting other people into the business and often allowing them to get a share of the profits of their recruits. The term Pyramid Scheme is often related to MLM business opportunities, and while not all of MLM opportunities are scams, some of them are, so you should be vary about signing up for just any of these types of offers.

Examples of MLM Businesses

You have most likely heard of many companies, who are essentially following the MLM business model without realizing that they are. Some of them are not only established but have quite a good reputation. Here is a list of examples:

Amway (health, beauty, and household products)
Avon (beauty products)
Usborne Books (educational products)
NuSkin (skin care)
Herbal Life (health and nutrition)
Mary Kay (beauty products)
It Works! (skin care and nutrition)
Scentsy (candles and scents)
Ambit Energy (electric and natural gas)
Advocare (health and fitness)

As you can see, MLM businesses are found in a variety of niches and are often well known.

What The Heck Is A MLM Business? What To Look Out For:

Some of MLM companies are not legit and offer little to no value to those who they are trying to recruit. While not everyone will have the same results or experiences I have had with some of these companies, I will over the next few weeks try to highlight those who work and those who did not work for me.

1. What training do they offer?
The quality of training of these companies varies greatly. Some offer continuous training opportunities, and valuable  information, that can help you build a thriving business, while others will leave you with a simple PDF that has nothing to offer.

Related Article: How To Become A Successful Affiliate Marketer

2. Upfront and continued cost
Almost every MLM has upfront costs, which in itself is not a problem. But many of them either do not give you valuable information or products in exchange for your money, or will ask you to pay a continued fee, and other payments, that promise more results. Make sure that you are informed about all costs – those to get started, and those who are continued costs.

3. Their focus is on recruiting not on selling
If the companies products are great, and worth their price, they tend to not push those signed up through their programs to push for new recruits, at least not right away. Other companies, however, push more recruiting, then selling, which should set off your alarm bells. These are very often not legitimate companies.

4. Lack of quality products.
Any good MLM company will allow you to sample their products and showcase their quality. If the product is not up to  high-quality standards, don’t sign up. Avon, for example, is known for their high-quality products, and it is easy to find someone who had good experiences with the company.

Conclusion:

MLM business opportunities are not all bad, as some want to make you believe. But, in order to make these types of businesses profitable for you, you must do your research.
I personally suggest that you should diversify your online business, by using a variety of passive income models, such as affiliate marketing, drop shipping, or Kindle publishing, as well as working with MLM companies.

Watch out for more detailed reviews on specific MLM companies, over the course of the next few weeks!

What Is Fizzle – An Insider Review

What Is Fizzle - A Insider Review

Interested in learning more about creating a viable online business? Finding answers to the questions that arise when beginning in the development such business is not always easy, and requires research and time. Fizzle.co can help you answer those questions, and build a solid foundation to build your idea from. But what is Fizzle exactly, and how can it help you on your journey? I have tried the platform out for you, and taken many of the offered lessons, to give you an insight.

What Is Fizzle?
Fizzle is a learning platform, accountability space, and active forum designed to help those who are in different phases of developing an online business, no matter which form this business takes.

Pro:
If you are a visual learner but love following along with worksheets and checklists, Fizzle offers both. The entertaining videos, are very informative and up-to-date (unlike some of its competitors), and in-depth, building
upon each other. The often included PDF’s and worksheets are well designed and get straight to the point. There is not much fluff there, which is, in my opinion, a waste of time, anyway. I am someone who is action oriented, and Fizzle is as well, therefore it is perfect for someone who wants to take massive actions in their business creation.

The dashboard and interface of the site are easy to navigate. The forum is in contrast to the dashboard light, and welcomingly bright. I like that the founders of the program seem to be active on the platform as well, and are open to answering any question you might have.

What is Fizzle

Unlike Wealthy Affiliate, Fizzle is not limited in subject matter to just affiliate marketing. This platform is applicable for every form of internet-based business, from selling your own product, to drop shipping to affiliate marketing, blogging, or whatever else you can come up with. I love that.

What I also love is, that lessons from true entrepreneur giants, like Pat Flynn are included. Exclusive content on email marketing, building traffic, and network building are what keep me coming back, as well as the constant new lessons, that are added.  at 35 Dollars a month – after a 30 Day free trial – the platform is worth every penny.

What is Fizzle
Con’s
Unlike Wealthy Affiliate, Fizzle does not include hosting, and it is a lot less social, because the forum is kept separated from the lessons, while in WA it is all integrated, and connection happens within the lessons, on the personal blog posts, and via questions asked. This can be both a negative and positive side, depending on what kind of learner you are. If you easily sidetracked, Fizzle is easier for you to stay focused upon.
Another thing, that is a small downfall of Fizzle, is that they only offer a down-scaled version of an affiliate program. You can not make any money referring people to Fizzle, but you do get a discount on your membership, for each referral, which is nice.
Wealthy Affiliate, on the other hand, allows you to make money from each new premium subscriber, for the time of their membership. This can add up quickly.

Conclusion

I really like Fizzle, because of the less distractive nature of the platform. I am there to learn, and only have to socialize when I want to. Yet, there is peer support, and accountability if you are looking for them, available anytime. That alone is nice to know, even if you are not taking advantage of that often.  If this platform would offer hosting like Wealthy Affiliate had, I would switch completely to that program. I am not new to internet business, so Fizzle offers me more flexibility while keeping me interested and challenged. That is something Wealthy Affiliate lacks at times.

So, if you already have reliable hosting, and are looking for great lessons on how to build your business, you should give Fizzle a try. You can start your free trial by following this link.

Question:

What is your favorite platform for learning about business? Please share your recommendations below.

How To Become A Successful Affiliate Marketer

how-to-become-a-successful-affiliate-marketer

Affiliate marketing is an exciting way to make money online, without the need of creating one’s own products or  holding inventory. You can start this type of passive income businesses from your dining room table, with nothing more than a computer, and a reliable internet connection. But how does one become a successful affiliate marketer?

 

Check out the following 6 Tips

1. Build upon a successful foundation

Any successful business is built upon a solid foundation of knowledge and tools. Finding a niche that is profitable and which you are passioned about is one of the keys to a successful affiliate marketing business. You should try to look for a niche, in which you  already an expert in, or one in which you always wanted to accumulate a lot of knowledge about. If you are still stuck on what specific type of affiliate marketing niche is right for you, check out this lessons “Choosing Your Direction: It Starts With A Niche” 

2. Find a reliable web host 

The second important step is to decide upon which platform you will be using for your website or blog. I do not recommend the free sites, such as blogger, or the free wordpress.com, due to its limits in customizability and monetization. If you are serious about making money with your affiliate marketing website, you should consider a WordPress site, which needs to be hosted via the various hosting services available out there. My two favorites are HostGator, which has a very reliable hosting platform, and excellent customer service, or if you are completely new to building a website, then I highly suggest that you host via SiteRubix, which is a part of the Wealthy Affiliate University, and comes not only with reliable and friendly customer service but with lessons on how to build your niche site from ground up. You can read more about my experience with Wealthy Affiliate  here.

3. Connect with profitable businesses

In order to be successful with affiliate marketing, you have to connect with companies that offer affiliate programs.  Luckily the big stores, offer these types of partnerships, such as Amazon, Walmart, Etsy and more. You can sign up with their programs by visiting their sites directly (usually, you will find a link on the bottom of their websites), or by joining affiliate marketing networks like ShareASale, who will connect you with many programs, such as my personal varieties,  FitBit, CreativeLive, Lulu’s, and many more.

4. Provide valuable content to drive traffic

Once you decided what niche you want to work in, and which companies you want to work with, you need to provide valuable content for your readers, so that they will continue to come back. These should be a mixture of informative articles, how to guides, and reviews. The ratio on how many of each of the type of content you provide, depends largely on your niche.

5. Stay current

Whatever your type of content, you need to make sure you stay up-to-date with your niches developments. Set up google alerts, to learn about the latest news, read other blogs, and books about the subject, and share the learned information with your readers. It is also a great idea to join forums so that you are always aware of what your potential reader’s concerns and questions are. Try to answer these questions in your blog posts, on a regular basis.

6. Become a trusted resource

Continuing to bring valuable information will make you a trusted resource, that will bring in repeat readers. While this takes time, it is a relationship you want to make sure you take great care in building. Affiliate marketing is not one of those get rich quick schemes, but if you are willing to put in the time, and effort to connect and build a community of readers, you will have the chance of creating a solid business for yourself and your family.

Make A Few Extra Dollars With Fusion Cash – A Review

Make A Few Extra Dollars With Fusion Cash - A Review

Survey Sites have been around a while, claiming to make you money, simply by you filling out a few surveys. One of the better sites, in this field, is Fusion Cash. Now with better sites, I mean you can actually make a few dollars (emphasizing on a few), but even if you are taking advantage of all of the details, you will not get rich.

Ways to Make Money With Fusion Cash:

Surveys 

Free Money at FusionCash!You can fill out the surveys listed, and if you are approved you get paid – from a few pennies, up to a few dollars. Those who make you the most money, want you to give them your credit card information – something I do not recommend, for anyone to do, ever! Some of the legitimate surveys, allow you to repeat them every day, which is cool, others are only  offered once. I have had a few surveys get stuck in the middle, or even at the end, and did not get a credit for them. After investing about 10 minutes of my time, that was a frustrating conclusion.

Daily Email 

There is a daily email, you can sign up for, which will pay you 2 cents, if you open it, and follow the instructions. Usually the task is to look at a short video, and put in a phrase into the appropriate box. It does not take much time, so I do it every day, when I am already checking my mail anyway.

Paid To Click

Another way to earn a few pennies toward your cashout limit is to go to the paid-to-click section of the FusionCash site.  There you will be asked to click on a few pages (usually four), and then to click on one of the sponsored ads.  You will then receive your 5 to 20 cents, which you can repeat daily. Again this does not take long, and you can do that while you are doing something else. If you are concerned about clicking on adds, Fushion Cash (and that goes only for Fusion Cash), carefully vets their advertisments, so you can trust them. Of course, always use caution, and never enter any personal information into those advertisements. You do not need to, to get your bonus anyway.

Watch Videos, Play Games, Take Quizzes

There are additional opportunities, such as watching videos, answering quizzes, and sharing slide shows via social media. I have personally not tried out these options because I simply do not like quizzes, but I know a few people who do and have tried it, with some positive results. Again, if you have the time, and like doing quizzes, or watching videos, this might be an option for you

Referrals

The last way to make money on Fusion Cash is to refer others to the site. You will receive money when a referral verifies their email, and whenever they cash out. As long as you don’t over-promise the results and make the site look like it is something that it is not – a great way to make a lot off extra money, instead of the reality, that you can make a few dollars to feed your Starbucks habit – I don’t see any problems with making money this way. I try to make sure that every site I refer someone to, I am not simply doing it because it makes me money, but because it actually will benefit you in some way, and consider that ethical. But if and how you choose to take advantage of that, is up to you.

Free Money at FusionCash!Conclusion:
Fusion Cash is a legitimate and safe site to make a few extra dollars. It is free to join, and you will not asked to pay anything to Fushion Cash at any time.  Do not expect to make a fortune. My balance for this week is 9.86 US Dollars for activities, and surveys. This total does not include referrals.  That is about what you can expect for a few minutes of your time every day unless you have way too much time on your hands.

How To Get The Most Out Of The Wealthy Affiliate Network

Wealthy Affiliate Affiliate Marketing Make Money From Home

This post contains affiliate links, see disclosure page for details

If you are considering joining Wealthy Affiliate, to learn more about affiliate marketing, you should consider a few
points to get the most out of the program.

1. If you are looking for a simple hosting service, that works with WordPress, but you have already experience in Affiliate marketing or have other passive income experience, you should consider skipping the program and host with another service such as BlueHost. While there are many positive parts to Wealthy Affiliate, for hosting services alone it would be too expensive for one site.

2. Now if you are planning on hosting more than one site, Wealthy Affiliate is a deal. With the membership, you can host up to 25 websites, without paying any extra. Each of them includes support, emails for your domain, and continuous updates, as well as great security. There are no hidden costs, expect that you have to pay for a domain, just like you would with any other hosting service.

3. Take the offered courses, in the assigned order! This is especially important if you are new to Affiliate marketing. The skills taught in Wealthy Affiliate build upon each other, so if you skip one, you might miss out on some important points.

4. Read the peer-offered training modules. Many more experienced members of Wealthy Affiliate – myself included  –  offer our own expertise by creating training for all of the members of Wealthy Affiliate. Those lessons range from how to create  Youtube videos for your marketing efforts, to how to create Facebook ads.

5. Ask questions. Wealthy Affiliate gives you the opportunity to post questions in the classrooms. Those questions will then be answered by members, as well as Ambassadors of the community. There is hardly any reason to ever get stuck on a subject related to marketing. All you have to do is, ask, and someone will get back to you – most often it will be quite a bit of people who will get back to you.

6. Collaborate. Wealthy Affiliate is a great place to network, find guest posting opportunities, and exchange ideas. As a member, I highly recommend, that you reach out to other members and jump right into conversations, in order to get the  most out of the program.

If you want to take your Affiliate Marketing and Passive Income Business to the next level, but are a stuck on how to
go about, then Wealthy Affiliate is the place for you.

Here is a quick overview of the membership benefits and options (Starter and Premium):

or any other business venture you are going after? Or are you accumulating material items, or use it to have
fleeting experiences, and distractions, such as the newest tech items, and a bigger television.

You are most likely here on this blog, because, like me, you are looking to grow, and become financially independent. But unlike me,
a lot of you out there are not focusing the income they have right now, on what they say they truly value.

In order to pursue your goals, you have to invest in them. That means time, your finances, and your attention. A part of creating a growth mindset means that you might have to take a course or hire a virtual assistant to be the most efficient. Courses and virtual assistants can be expensive, yet they are worth it, as are other tools that can manage your time, and increase your productivity.

And, if you are not in need of these tools, you should allow your money to work for you in other ways. Invest in successful businesses, acquire bonds, hire an investment consultant to increase your portfolio and become truly financially independent.

This week, I am asking you to take a look at all of your expenses, and see where most of them are going:

Are you spending to stay healthy and fit?
Are you investing in yourself by purchasing books, courses, and other tools that can teach you to become better?
Are you learning how to invest what you have, and are applying what you learned?
Are you willing to be frugal for a little while, in order to achieve your goals?

Adjust your spending habits to fit your new values and goals. Have an open conversation with your partner and family about your conjoined goals, and how you can achieve them, by managing your wealth and time more wisely.

Fiercely Independent Blessings!
