Newsletter 27th January 2022: It’s a numbers game or is it?

by | Newsletters


Doing taxes or accounts has never been top of my “to do” list.

Having more left in the bank at the end of the month than I had the previous month, meant a good month.

And the opposite, a bad one!

But I mentioned a couple of months ago that I had started looking at the money coming in and going out every day.

I’ve continued with that habit every morning since.

Paying attention to the figures has had a much bigger effect than I expected.

So if you’re not doing that, I highly recommend it even if you’re just starting in business.


✨ It’s highly motivating when money comes in. Any money is nice – the sweetest first dollar earned and every single dollar after that!

✨ It stops me spending quite so frivolously when I have to note the difference between what comes in and what goes out

✨ It makes me work harder, do more promotions, and produce more to meet a target that I can see I might be able to aim for if I pushed myself a bit

Can you see how that might help you too?

Would it help you take your business seriously (or more seriously than you already do)?


After doing that level of accounting (just total money in and out each day) for a couple of months, I can see the value in having more detailed financial information in my business, so I was super excited to see Debbie Gartner’s tracking system today.

Income Tracker

This is a simple to use spreadsheet (Google doc format) with all the calculations done for you. You enter the figures and find out all you need to know about the important parts of your business.

Which products are making you the most money? Do more of them!

Which affiliate promotions are working? And which are not worth pursuing?

How are your page views growing? At the moment, I have no clue but I want to grow my organic traffic this year.

What are you making from ads?

What are you spending?

Take a look at the video on this page to see how simple it will be to get a handle on the finances of your business.

This is the system that Debbie Gartner uses herself to monitor her own very successful blogging, product, and affiliate business. It has been refined and honed over many years.

I watched the video and that was enough for me. For just $27, that’s one charge I’m happy to note in my outgoings tomorrow. Sold!

And Debbie’s system qualifies for my extra bonus (details below). 💖💖💖


Affinity is wonderful high functionality low cost software suite by Serif with a “buy it once” price and not a subscription. (Adobe-like functionality without the strain on your wallet!)

If you love Affinity (or you want to use it!) you’ll love the Affinity Lovers Collection 2022 a bundle of goodies just for Affinity users with products, training, and assets and even a $30 gift coupon from Catherine (which is more than the cost of the bundle!)

I contributed my latest product with commercial rights made in Affinity Publisher. (I learned the program in a couple of days over the holidays because I’m convinced it’s the best (and simplest) program to use for creating low content books for Amazon KDP.)

Affinity Tracker

Along with my contribution to the bundle, you’ll get so much more. Take a look at everything in there and then decide.

Bonus: Get the bundle through my link and receive an additional $20 gift coupon for my store as well as my extra bonus. 💖💖💖 Just send your receipt to and I’ll verify it and send you your bonuses.


Di has a new Valentine product with commercial rights just launched. It has digital planner and printable planner versions and a bundle with both planners plus a whole set of additional goodies.

You might think I shouldn’t be promoting this when I have my own Valentine related product just out (see below).

But I like to share the work of other creators.

Everyone has more to choose from as far as designs go and it’s a great idea to pick up various products with a similar theme to mix and match pages with your own designs, creating the best ever product as a result. 😊🥰

I love it when when Marian brings out a new product because she always has something a little different to offer and her latest course called MELLO is no exception. This one is a new kind of digital planner based on Trello. I use Trello boards for so much already that I’m looking forward to digging into this course especially now that I’ve seen how well these sell on places like Etsy.

And even better, the competition is light – only around 500 examples there. Marian demonstrates a wedding planner like this. Her system is perfect for an event planner but there are many examples of different uses.

One Etsy example I found. Wow!
