Newsletter 21st May 2023: Alfie says stop already 💖 & free create-a-workbook training

by | Newsletters


You’ll read a lot of emails (including mine) that urge you to get work done.

No apologies for that.

You do have to work hard to succeed. No bones about it.

But you also have to know when to stop and not feel guilty about it.

We all need breaks.

Just make sure that rest is exactly that.

Resting is not doing minor business tasks, just to get them off your plate, or flicking through Facebook.

Resting is having fun with your friends and family, reading a good book, watching a movie, or zonking out on the grass in the sun, like my dog Alfie, who inspired today’s thought 🐶

Be kind to yourself. Set up regular breaks that are real breaks and you’ll have more energy to get the hard work done.

Facebook will wait!  💖

Ruthie store closing sale

When lockdown first hit in 2020, my muse disappeared and I gave up writing steamy romances. (Somehow boy meets girl, gets fatal disease didn’t seem like much of a plot line. 😱)

Anyway, I decided to switch to the low content space and make use of the graphic design training that had helped me make best-selling romance book covers.

That was when I met Ruthie on Zoom and found out about the PLR niche and selling templates with commercial rights.

Ruthie kindly gave me the chance to take part in her upcoming bundle too.

Result: my first 600 subscribers.

So now I feel sad that she is closing her own PLR store, but happy for Ruthie that she is developing her business more in line with what she wants to do.

And you’re in luck because now everything in the store is marked down to pocket money prices.

No coupon needed.

Hop on over to scoop up everything you want here:

The sale ends on the 31st but you’ll have access to download until the end of the year so no worries if you purchase.

My bonus: If you spend $20 or more through my link, you can choose any one bonus report from the list at the end of this newsletter, spend $40 get two etc 💖💖💖

T-shirts are another great seller on Etsy but t-shirt selling is not so much fun if you end up with a garage full of t-shirts in every size and color!

And Kristie has a new 110 page blueprint showing you step by step how to do it.

This is exactly how she’s making a business herself selling t-shirts on Etsy.
