Newsletter 27th March 2022: Please don’t pay me anything (not a joke) ☹️

by | Newsletters


This is not the email I thought I was going to write today. The title was going to be “It’s a special kind of day today because…” and the topic about it being Mothering Sunday in the UK and my “little ones” who are 24 and 31 years old. (Being a mum never actually gets old 💖)

But anyway, that was going to be my topic but instead I had a problem with Paypal when I tried to buy Melissa’s product below. The message didn’t seem to make sense.

So I called them up and apparently, I need to jump through a lot of hoops to prove who I am and to change my name on the account from the name I’ve had there quite happily since 2005 (my actual name but not in the format on my government id) And after that’s done, I need to send a whole lot of documentation off to verify that I’m a real person. This may take  a week or more they say “depending how many people they have in the verification queue.”

Meanwhile, I’m not allowed to spend money or receive money so that is going to be a nightmare trying to run a business.

Not helped by me being out of town from the crack of dawn tomorrow and not able to access all my stuff.

Those of you who have had fun and games with Paypal know how this feels, I’m sure.

If not, you can probably imagine.

So much for a relaxing break.  😱

But stuff happens in business, and we just have to pull up our big girl panties and roll with the punches.

And my mantra is definitely coming in handy right now: “Whatever happens, I’ll handle it” because you just have to. And somehow you do.

I’ll have my laptop with me and will extend my launch for a few days in case anyone still wants to buy.

And pay my bills as soon as I can too.

I’m sorry about all this.

If you want to use my links to buy products from others, they are not affected by Paypal, and you can still earn my bonuses, just not buy things from my store.

Whatever you’re doing today, I hope you manage to make it special and have a better day than me! (And even now I’m thinking many people have things far worse than me (especially at the moment))

Every day is precious and a gift as they say. Make it count.  💖


One of the reasons I haven’t started with social media is that I don’t have time to deal with any of it.

All those itty bitty tasks soon add up, yet if you don’t tackle social media with a good strategy, all the time you spend is wasted.

A course I took recently, showed that you could get on well without social media (and I have so far) but also taught that you should have a strategy and not get sucked in if you’re going to do it.

I’d like to see what happens by testing social media for myself.

But I still didn’t know how to start.

Then I just noticed Social Media Hand Off from Melissa Ingold which answers my “what to do” and “how to do it” questions.

With this kit, you can either follow the strategies for each social media platform step by step yourself or use them to work with a VA.

The whole package is HALF PRICE until midnight today using promo code 50. (Sorry about the short notice, I just spotted this today.)

This is just one of the items in this package. I counted thirty (30) items in all covering every aspect of social media. (I’m not even going to try doing everything at once.)

Value: priceless.
