I saw this tweet today “You’re not bad at something. You’re new to something.” which made me think. Is that really true?
You see, I’m great at looking at other people and thinking this is true for them. But not so good for myself.
For example, I would say to you that I can’t sing, and I have had that monkey chatter in my head ever since one b** of a primary school teacher told me I couldn’t be an angel in the nativity play because I couldn’t sing.
If I’d known better, I should have probably told her she shouldn’t be in charge of kids minds but then I was five years old LOL
I still can’t sing. But if I think about it, if I really wanted to, I could have singing lessons and I’d probably learn to hold a tune and sing in key.
We hold ourselves back by telling ourselves that we don’t have talent for this or a gift for that.
And while it might be true that we’re not of an age and/or don’t have the physical capability to be Olympic athletes, there’s nothing stopping us from doing a single thing necessary to be a success online.
No barriers at all!
And that is a very freeing but also scary thought.
Because now you have to think, what is stopping you when you don’t have that excuse?
And I hear you in my head telling me you don’t have time 💖 but unless every spare minute is taken up doing more valuable things, then you do have time.
It might take you longer than others but you’ll get there.
Begin doing that thing you can’t do today.
And soon it won’t be new.
And you will no longer be bad at it. 💖
NEW: YOU MIGHT THINK FB ADS ARE A BAD IDEA BUT…
FB ads are only a bad idea if you don’t use them in the right way.
But if you know how to make them work, they can be the best (and most cost effective) boost to your business.
And you can test with very little money until you find your feet with them.
There’s little else that can turn on a flood of traffic overnight.
Send instant traffic to test your offers.
Let low budget ads show you what’s not working and what is, before you spend precious time promoting your offers in other ways.
Once you have something that sells, amplify all your efforts with ads for maximum ROI.
If you want to know how to do this, Yadsia is the queen of making FB Ads work especially for digital products and low content planners and journals.
And her Facebook and Instagram Ads for Digital Products masterclass is finally ready to dive into.
I can’t wait!
This will be part of my growth plans this year for my store and I’ll use Yadsia’s course to guide me all the way, because she is someone who does what she teaches and makes bank using ads selling low cost products via FB ads.
The course is just $147 during launch ($197 after, and way cheaper than many courses which teach this. And they are usually less helpful for small digital product sellers.)

Our Quirky 2022 calendar and matching planner proved so popular last year that we’ve added a new product Quirky Pages with many more options so that you can create a whole series of original products to sell in your shop.
I love the original cute dotted pattern in ice cream colors that comes with the product, but the beauty of it is that it is so easy to replace with your own design (or any digital paper) to get an entirely new look that’s all yours and your alone.
You can do it in Canva or Powerpoint just by changing the background.
Here are the Quirky pages. Get them for just $14.95 with coupon code QUIRKYDEAL (regularly $27) until Thursday 17th.
If you missed out on all the quirky goodness in the past, you can get the bundle of four Quirky products (on the same page) for one low price instead.
Just $27 with coupon code QUIRKYBUNDLE (regularly $67). (We set the price low enough to be worth it even if you have one or two of the other products.)
This special price ends on Thursday 17th as well.
24 papers included with either option.
Change background easily and swap out the template section too to anything you want.
RUN DON’T WALK TO GET THIS

If you’re stuck at that point, or would like to make those color decisions more easily from now on, grab this Color Your Brand training and workshop so you can ask all the questions you have on color choice.
