My series of sewing classes finished today and I’m left with another thing I haven’t finished, though I started with high hopes.
Yes, I’m sure I’m not on my own there when it comes to starting things and not quite getting them done.
And I’m not just talking about sewing.
What is it that makes projects sit there unfinished?
Most of us say it’s a lack of time. But I don’t think it’s that alone.
The trouble is, when we start out, we have this idea in our head of how our project is going to turn out, but reality can’t live up to perfect.
And as soon as we realize how far from that ideal our new creation (product/blog post/website) is, we’re not so inclined to complete it.
We know that once we finish the thing, it will mean facing the scrutiny of others.
So there’s a bit of fear going on there too.
We put that unfinished project to one side and start another thing.
And the cycle repeats itself.
That’s why I have half a dozen sewing projects waiting to be finished. And quite a few work projects on my hard drive.
It’s easier to start a new thing.
But what would happen if we stopped worrying about the opinions of others and scheduled time to complete all our projects to the best of our ability?
Wouldn’t it be good to get back all the time and effort invested in unfinished work by finishing it and getting it out there?
As for my latest sewing project, I’m going to book more classes so it will get done. But it’s going to be six weeks before they start again. I might just have to go it alone with YouTube and hope for the best 😊
And that’s an idea for half-finished work projects too!
Show Off Your Book or Journal & Sell It
It’s no good hiding your finished work in a corner of your website once you’re done.
Before you can sell your product, potential buyers have to notice it, otherwise you’ll get…crickets.
Go for maximum visibility everywhere with great product images and video.
That sounds like a lot of work but luckily there’s a product called Mockupshots that gives you an easy and very fast way of drawing attention to a book or journal on your website or on social media.
You load up your cover and in a few seconds, you have a huge number of realistic mockups, GIFS and videos that draw the eye and stop the scroll like nothing on earth.
I’ve had this for a while and now they’ve slashed the price for the holidays.
Take a look at the magic here. So many cool images, GIFs and videos to make from one cover in an instant to show off your work.
Another day, another bundle or is it?
Every bundle is crazy good value when you compare the prices of individual products to the amount you pay. But some will be especially good value for you, depending on the content and how much of it you can put to immediate use in your business.
Take a look at this one by Color Monthly to make that decision for your business. This one is particularly good if you are in the coloring niche, but it also has a lot of planner goodies in it.
Selling one or two products will cover the cost, but only if you will put them up for sale!
Tip: If you buy it, schedule the launch date for each product you plan to sell!
