Newsletter 16th October 2022: Thrive in chaos 💖 & free journal prompts

by | Newsletters


With events over the past couple of years on the world stage and latterly a whole lot of shenanigans with the UK economy, life has seemed more than a little chaotic.

A bit of stability would be nice for a few years (or failing that I’ll take a few days. 🤣)

But let’s face it, we just have to deal with whatever happens anyway.

So, it was good to read about the bright side of chaos this weekend.

Because chaos (if we decide to accept it and not hide in a corner) is the place where we become our most creative.

It’s where innovation happens.

It’s when businesses come out of nothing.

And you do that thing you’ve been meaning to do, maybe out of desperation, but you do it.

Having your own business in times of chaos may seem like a risky thing to have.

But it’s actually not.

Because you can pivot and move at the speed of light if you need to.

And if you have an online business, you can do it anywhere.

When jobs are scarce, you can create your own income.

And when inflation runs rampant, you can create and sell another product and have it not affect you at all.

At the very least, you can make a bit extra so you don’t run out of cash before the end of the month.

So don’t worry about the doomsayers or the chaos; build your own future.

You can start (or build on what you already have going) at any time.  And now is a great time! 💖

If you’re not selling as many as you’d hoped, it could be that you have a design issue and not even know it.

The problem may be that your course, printable, or planner has to compete with all products designed by professional graphic designers.

And if it doesn’t look the part, buyers will pass right on by, even if your same-price offer has better content!

Unfair, but true.

As a non-designer, it’s often in selecting fonts and laying out text where mistakes are made.

But you can level the playing field and compete with the best very quickly by using the principles and tips you’ll discover in my new course.

course white background 1280 by 960

No need to take a diploma in graphic design or hire an expensive graphic designer to raise your game.

One hour is all you need!

Launch price just $27

Get more details here:

Note: We start with fonts as this is where most mistakes are made, but buyers will also have the opportunity to get One Hour Graphics at an even lower price which will cover use of images in a design.
