Newsletter 25th January 2023: Happy side of the seesaw 😊 & a brilliant new bundle including my new journal

by | Newsletters


There’s that tipping point in business when you finally see the results of your labors.

Things start selling and you begin making a profit.

You get the rewards.

And from that point on it’s super easy to justify the time you spend on your business.

You know the hours you spend will result in something – sales or subscribers or followers or whatever you’re aiming for.

But oh dear, before that tipping point, it’s tough.

I feel you on that one.

I spent a long time on that side of the see-saw (or teeter-totter I think it might be called in some parts – that name makes me giggle for some reason!)

If you’re finding it tough to keep going, you probably also have a few people in your family nipping your ear about how much time you spend on a business that is not making you much.

It might even be costing you money.

But if you want to succeed, you just have to ignore all that and keep going.

Because that’s the only way to get to the tipping point.

And be on the happy side of the seesaw.

Simply don’t quit! 💖



Ruthies bundle

Some things about this bundle are the same as other bundles.

Huge value ($1600)

Awesome products. (40 of them)

Low price ($37)

But this is a bundle that can change your life and business in two ways.

The personal use side will help you change your mindset.

It will help you keep going when times are tough.

It will help you not quit.

And the commercial use products will give you items that you can use to build your business, without spending a mass of time (that is always in short supply) or burning through your budget.

10 almost instant products to sell, perfect for the personal development and coaching niches.

Take a look at everything included here:

I contributed a brand new product with commercial use, the 30 Day Journal for Tough Times with 41 pages that you see below. But there is so much in this bundle besides my contribution.

My bonus: Get even more value from the bundle! If you buy it through my link above, you can choose any one bonus report from the list at the end of this newsletter (or wait and claim one of my new reports coming soon!) 💖💖💖




If you work online, there’s no getting away from it, you either have to outsource graphic creation or learn to make graphics yourself.

Because a page that is all text won’t get much attention at all.

People tell you just to use templates if you’re graphically challenged, but it’s easy to murder a good template if you don’t know what you’re doing.

If you sell something like printables, designs that are just a little bit off will kill your business before it gets going.

No one is going to choose an unpolished looking printable.

Even if you sell courses or info products, there’s no escape.

We all judge a book by its cover (or by the mockup!)

Don’t let your products languish on the digital shelves when you can fix your graphics with this one hour no fluff training.

Discover the rules for graphics that non-designers don’t know and upgrade every design you ever create.

Just $27 during launch (regularly $67)

Get all the details here:

I put this course together because I don’t want anyone to have disappointing sales of an otherwise great product.

It’s truly worth an hour of your time no matter what you’re selling online.

If selecting and using fonts also challenges you, you can grab One Hour Fonts at the same $27 low launch price (saving $40) after checkout for the graphics course.

Launch pricing ends 31st January.

Stuart Turnbull (an Etsy expert) lays it all out in a detailed 90 page report, showing you how to do this for just $36.
