Newsletter 25th October 2022: Totally failed with this… 😢 & brand new bonus 🥰

by | Newsletters


What have I totally failed at?

As I’m trying new things all the time, the question could be more what have I not failed at? 🤣

Plus, there are all those projects I mentioned the other day that I never quite get around to doing, like clearing all the clutter out of the house.

But not succeeding at one thing or another doesn’t make me a failure. (And it doesn’t make you one either.)

You just have to keep trying (“I’ll destroy you clutter in the end.” <shakes fist at the mess>)

However, there’s also a case for not throwing good time after bad.

A few months ago, I talked about an experiment with Instagram.

We created an account @simplehappinessbiz and posted every day.

It looks very pretty but I have to say it’s doing very little for my business, so I’m not sure of the point of it now other than to have a presence on the gram.

I probably just didn’t get it, but at this point I’m ready to try something else with the time and money we put into that.

Makes me a bit sad. I like the pretty.

If you are getting a lot out of Instagram (and you have a business like mine), what did you do? I’m all ears.

I’ll probably just move onto Pinterest!

Don’t worry about getting things wrong.

You don’t have to succeed at every aspect of business to make a good living.

Trying things out (and failing) is an essential part of the process. 💖

Cool Blue Affinity Digital Planner

If you always wanted to make a fully dated planner in Affinity Publisher but only had templates for Powerpoint or Keynote, help is at hand.

A few months ago, my friend Jayne and I launched a course to show you how to transfer a printable PDF template to Affinity.

(You can see that course “To Affinity & Beyond” here if you missed it.)

While the techniques are great for printables, they don’t work for digital planner templates as the links don’t carry over.

It’s all right if you have to recreate one or two links but dated fully-linked planners have thousands of the things.

These templates have to be made from scratch.

So, I kicked off a project to do just that, and now it’s ready: a fully-dated 2023 digital planner template for Affinity Publisher with hundreds of pages and thousands of links.

Along with the template you’ll find a 41-page manual with step-by-step instructions for changing your planner (if you wish) so that you can easily create something unique to sell.

Just $27 for both template and instructions during the launch (ends midnight 25th)

There is also a chance to scoop up another done-for-you design at checkout at $9.95 but no other upsells.

Save weeks of work and learning how to do this and stock your shop with gorgeous and highly functional digital planners made in Affinity Publisher!
