Newsletter 16th February 2022: Everything changes (and what to do about it) 🎉website help and so much more

by | Newsletters


Sometimes it seems like just when you get a business model that works, everything changes.

All your traffic comes from Pinterest and they change the algorithm.

The software you loved changes hands and the new owners are no longer offering the same functionality.

The market you’re in gets overrun with competition.

Maybe you’re feeling like you’ll never catch up and get ahead of the curve.

But it’s just not true.

Trust me, I know what a pain in the posterior all those changes can be. I’ve fallen foul of enough of them in my time online.

But as small business owners we have a huge advantage. We can pivot quickly and, with a fair wind, have a new business by next Friday.

If you’re wondering how you do that when you have so much to learn about your current business model, don’t worry, I have a plan!

While you’re learning the strategies and tactics for the business model you’re focusing on right now (and please tell me you are focusing on one, not half a dozen!) put some time aside for your general online business education that will work for any new venture in the future:

Here are a few areas that will stand you in good stead no matter what happens going forward:

➡️ copywriting
➡️ general writing skills
➡️ graphic design skills
➡️ email marketing
➡️ affiliate marketing
➡️ webpage creation/design
➡️ video creation and editing

It doesn’t mean you have to be proficient in all of them. You can outsource those skills you can’t or don’t want to do (and some are optional), but if you have skills like these in your toolbox, you need never fear that the rug will be pulled out from under your feet without being able to move ahead. 💖


There are a lot of sales letters that proclaim that you don’t need a website to make your fortune.

But so much depends on having one (and being able to change it quickly) that it’s a skill you shouldn’t ignore.

So if you are sitting there with an unfinished website (or you haven’t even started yours) now is a great time to cut out all the technical anguish and put yourself in the capable hands of Yolande at Feathered Vine with her Website Launch Accelerator Course.

Vine website accelerator

Yolande has helped countless people build their websites and I know she’ll be able to help you too, no matter how tech challenged you feel.

And in this 4 week program, she starts right back at the beginning from planning your perfect website.

If the reason you haven’t finished is that you took a wrong turn, you’ll be able to put that right with a fresh start.

And simply get it done.

With Yolande’s help all the way.

Take a look at everything included in The Feathered Vine Website Accelerator 4 weeks course and join quickly because the next live round takes place March 1st to 30th and it will give you time to think about the website you want to work on. 

Bonus: Join the Basic Plan through my link here and I’ll give you a $20 coupon for my site and your choice of additional report bonus (see below.) 💖💖💖 Join the Mentor Plan and I’ll give you a $40 coupon instead as well as the bonus report


If you’re a regular reader, you’ll know I go on about my coach Naima a lot.

She offers a mixture of accountability, practical wisdom, and technological know-how week after week that’s hard to beat.

And a whole business education! That kind that means you can pivot without a problem. I wouldn’t have gotten half as far without her guidance, encouragement, and insight, all delivered in fun and friendly, yet challenging, group sessions.

If you’d like to get Naima’s input on your business and product idea, and see what a difference a good coach can make, she’s offering her Magic 1-pager workshop next week for just $37 including bonus training worth $871 (you’ll get one of my favorite courses of hers, Products that Pop, that will change how you go about creating products forever as well as so much more.)

Be prepared to be blown away!

If you love Canva and you like making templates, don’t miss your chance to get this fantastic new training Canva Template Shop Success Kit for a steal.

I grabbed it as soon as I saw it, because Julia who created the course has sold over 5,000 digital products in her Etsy shop and her Template Shop Business made over $100K in 2021.

A handy extra chunk of change!

The course is only available at the special pre-launch price (60% off) until it goes live in a few days.

Right now, it’s just $57 – which is amazing for a  course like this.

It will be launched and ready on 20th February. This is the link to the course page on her site, but you’ll need to click the GET MORE DETAILS button to see the sales page for a full description.

Today’s EXTRA BONUS for any purchase through my links marked with 💖💖💖 in this newsletter is my plan for making $3k a month on KDP in 2022. It’s a pretty achievable goal but not without organized and systematic effort from you😊

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.

Quirky Pages Bundle Graphic

24 papers included with either option.

Quirky Pages Digital Papers

Change background easily and swap out the template section too to anything you want.

Enjoy the rest of the week and I’ll be back soon with more tips, freebies, and some offers but only the ones I personally think are great value and know the quality to be good.
