There’s always so much to do when you’re creating a business so I’m going to look at a few ways to reduce your workload this week. 💖
Starting with today’s theme: focus.
Except there’s an elephant in the room with that.
We keep being told that we need to diversify and not have all our eggs in one basket.
And that’s true. Diversity (at least to some degree) makes sound business sense.
But that presupposes that you already have a basket full of freshly-laid eggs.
If you don’t, and you’re trying to fill up several baskets at the same time, you’re going to drop a whole lot of eggs, and those baskets are going to stay empty far longer than necessary.
When you’re filling the first basket, focus all your effort on one thing.
One product, one promotional method, one business model.
Focus is key to doing a whole lot less and being that much more effective and successful than you would be if you were trying to create five income streams or five products at once.
You can ignore a lot of overwhelming information that doesn’t apply.
You can skip superfluous training courses and save your money.
You can use your available budget purely on things that will help you succeed.
You can take action after action focused on one thing and get fast results.
And then once you have your basket filled and creating profit, add another thing! 💖
[On a personal note: Thank you for all your kind wishes re my positive virus test. I’m just so grateful that I have caught it in 2022 with the benefit of three vaccines not two years ago when it was so much more lethal. I’m still in quarantine but coughing and sneezing less so I hope the thing is on its way out. 💕 ]

WANT TO OPT OUT OF THE COMING RECESSION?
This was the subject line of one of the emails I just archived.
I guess we will all say yes to that.
The subject line is one of Tony’s. I always read his emails because the subject lines get my attention and the emails are short and full of stories.
It’s like a free masterclass in email marketing.
If you’re not on his list, grab his free report and watch very closely what he does. No hard sales tactics at all.
He only works mornings, doesn’t employ anyone, and makes a very good living indeed with his own simple products.
I want to be him when I grow up. 🤣
70% OFF COACH GLUE DONE-FOR-YOU TRAINING
This is an amazing deal on all these Coach Glue training packages – available only until April 21st.
These packages include full-blown video scripts that you can easily record to create your multi-media training course, but if you don’t do video, don’t worry, because you get the scripts as text files and you can turn those video scripts into any kind of content. In fact, you can use the text like that whether you make videos with them or not.
And you get a whole lot in the training packages besides video scripts.
This is a rare opportunity to save as much as this on a Coach Glue package and have your own course ready to sell in days rather than toiling for weeks or months to start from a blank slate.
Use coupon code: 70 to get 70% OFF
Take a look at all the packages available with this deal and see how many ideas there are there for using this content.
I’m sure you’ll be blown away by the possibilities of the training courses and info products you could create for such a low fee.
My bonus: Buy one or more of these Coach Glue packages through my link, and choose any one of my bonus reports from the end of this newsletter for each full video package you purchase. 💖💖💖
I AVOIDED DOING THIS FOR 10 YEARS
You may have heard me talk about my experience on KDP over the past 10 years mainly as an author of fiction and non-fiction books.
But I’ve always avoided doing ads. They scared the heck out of me, and they seemed so complicated.
Also, I did fine without them, making almost $200k over the ten years I’ve been publishing.
Selling low content books on Amazon is a different kettle of fish though and ads really help kickstart sales in that niche, so now that I’m following my own $3k a month plan (one of my bonus reports see below) I thought I had better get unscared. 🤣
So I picked up Michelle Brubaker’s Book Advertising Mastery Course Series last week as that is totally focused on advertising for low content and I attended the first session of her Amazon Ads training on Thursday.
It was a revelation how simple Michelle made a complicated system.
In less than an hour, I had a set of very easy action steps.
I’ll be doing those steps before the next session as it won’t take me more than a few minutes to follow what Michelle does for every book.
And I can’t wait for the next session.
I also love Michelle’s quality over quantity approach meaning you only create books that are worth advertising.
So much less effort in the long run for much more gain.
If you missed Thursday’s training, you can easily catch up with the replay at this stage and create your own Amazon self publishing success.
My bonus: If you buy Michelle’s training though my link, choose any two of my bonus reports from the end of this newsletter including my Amazon $3k a month plan if you don’t have it. (More reports coming soon if you have them all 😊 ) 💖💖💖
ENDS TOMORROW: WHATEVER I DO TURNS INTO A PLANNER…
Not quite everything but you know what I mean. 🤣
The Declutter my Home planner has 40 unique pages, plus two covers and six backgrounds and it’s fully editable in Canva or Powerpoint so you can create something that is uniquely you.
The whole product (no upsells!) is 50% off until Tuesday 19th April midnight Pacific.
Use coupon code DECLUTTER50 to get the discount which makes it just $18.50 (regularly $37)
A few people have asked for one of my bonus reports when they bought one of my own products but I haven’t been offering these as I don’t want to compete with my affiliates who like to offer their own bonuses or who maybe don’t have time to make extra bonuses.
So here’s what I’ll do for any sales going forward from today. For my products only, whether you buy through my link or through an affiliate, whenever you spend $17 or more in one transaction, you can also choose a bonus report from the end of this newsletter. 💖💖💖
By the way, there are a few new bonuses in the works. I just have to get them done and out of the works!
BALLERINA’S JOURNAL & PLANNER
Michelle’s latest product with commercial rights is this pretty journal & planner, perfect for budding prima ballerinas.
The Ballerina’s Journal and Planner has 36 unique pages (including special pages just for ballet lovers) and 5 different backgrounds all made by Michelle. The template is in two sizes, 8.5 x 11 & 8 x 10, editable PowerPoint files.
Use coupon code BALLET to save 45% until April 20th at Midnight making this product just $19.25 instead of the regular $35.
My bonus: If you buy Michelle’s printable set through my link, you can choose any one of my bonus reports from the end of this newsletter. 💖💖💖
