Newsletter 19th September 2021: Oops, I did a thing (again) twice! 🙄

by | Newsletters


I make all these rules for myself about not buying stuff but I’m not sure why I bother LOL

No sooner do I tell myself I don’t need another thing than some extra-special opportunity comes along just like a must-have pair of shoes on super sale.

And I grab it.

Sometimes, I have post-purchase regret (or buyer’s remorse, I think it’s officially called.)

But it’s oddly missing this week.

I’m sitting here gleefully with two things, knowing I did absolutely the right thing. (see *** in the PS for what they were if you want the short version 😊)

Maybe, I’m getting really sensible with my buying decisions.

But a bright yellow handbag is sitting here begging to differ. It’s bright and cheerful, I’ll give you that, but it doesn’t go with most of the stuff I have. Luckily, a very low cost booboo. Probably reduced for being yellow. lol

Hygge is a wonderful Scandinavian term that is hard to translate as it encompasses so many things—among them, coziness, contentment, joy in simple things, and comfort.

Reminder: FREE Printables training tomorrow & Tuesday

Don’t forget, free training also has a cost associated with it, a cost in time and also future emails you’ll receive, but one training webinar that I signed up for right away was the Ultimate Bundles Webinar How to Scale Your Blog to 5-Figure Months with Printables


  • It’s in my niche and seems highly relevant
  • I haven’t made the most of my blog yet for selling printables (and it’s in my business plan to add to the six posts 😔I have at the moment)

I expect when the time comes to do the webinar, I’ll have a deadline or something and time will be short.

But here’s my strategy for dealing with training like this, I’ll have the webinar on and multi-task with filing or something until it gets interesting. Then I’ll stop my filler task and take notes on anything I want to implement.  After the webinar, I’ll schedule the work if it’s worth doing now. Or I’ll make a note to create a project in the future.

But I have a feeling with this one that it will be packed with information so I won’t get much filing done 😊 Join me not filing my stuff.

Reminder: FREE Book

As a rule (unless a demo is required) I prefer to learn from books. You can get through them in small pockets of time, and with a non-fiction book, you can skim to get to the interesting parts 🤣 So I’m happy to let you know about this book that will be useful if you might like to create a book at some point in the future.

sell more books

Books are a great way to earn a living. Regular royalties are the most passive income I have. Once I get the time (there go the pigs flying over Edinburgh airport LOL) I’m going to create a few more.

Reminder: Help available

I make no secret of the fact that my VA Kareen has been a huge factor in the success of my business since I hired her. And she’s great fun to work with too. 😊

Imagine suddenly gaining 40 extra hours a week and what you could do with that time!

I took a really expensive course to learn how to find a perfect VA (it was well over $1k – yes, really!!) but you don’t have to because this course looks like it has everything that my really expensive course had in it 😝 and not only that, it’s by the guy who owns the agency I used to find Kareen so he knows what he’s talking about!

If your budget is tight, you don’t even have to start with 40 hours, you could start building your team with a part-time employee. Even ten extra hours of work a week will send you streets ahead of where you would be without help.
