Newsletter 28th April 2022: A huge help (sometimes free) 🙂

by | Newsletters

Hi

When you’re trying to get everything done as fast as you possibly can, it really helps  if you have the right tools for the job.

Tools can be the equivalent of having an extra pair of hands – a VA you don’t have to budget for.

So if you’re wincing at the cost of the tool you’re eyeing up, do your sums on the cost of paying someone to do the task not just the time it will save. 💖

And if a tool doesn’t have an ROI for your business in time or money, walk right on by!

Examples of tools that I wouldn’t be without are Canva Pro for making quick promo graphics and freebies, Publisher Rocket for doing keyword research for KDP books, and Divi for creating web pages. These tools save me a whole lot of time and each has an important role to play in my business.

Your set will be different, but always be on the lookout for how to automate to reduce your workload.

For example, if you constantly put off creating web pages, sales pages, blog posts and newsletters because you hate writing, get a tool that takes the hard work out of it, like Jasper, a very clever AI writing tool.

And use the heck out of it.

Because not writing is holding you back.

For sure.

Some tools are free and are there for the taking, but a tool like Jasper is an investment that costs you around $29 a month to write 20,000 words.

It might seem like a stretch if you’re on a budget.

But if you compare that with employing a writer with a perfect command of colloquial English, there’s no comparison in terms of cost.

20,000 words will not come cheap

The alternative is to spend days and days writing those words yourself (or months if you struggle a lot with writing.)

Of course, tools will only save you time and money if you use them.

I must confess, I’ve bought many tools that I haven’t used (yet!) that would really help if I got around to using them.

If you tend to buy and not use a tool (or find out about free tools and then not do anything with them), make a point of scheduling in the time to use a tool as soon as you purchase or find it.

I’m trying to do that now to avoid any new purchases gathering dust. But some still slip through the net.

Don’t be me.  Maximize the value and make good your investment from anything you buy! 💖

NAIMA HAS THE ANSWER

In two ways!

First of all, if you want to get organized and save time that way, don’t forget about Trello which is a brilliant FREE tool.

I use this every single day, for To Do lists, for organizing everything, and for communicating with my VAs.

But I’ve barely scratched the surface of what it can do.

To help you get the most out of Trello in minimum time, Naima has her Totally Trello course.

totally trello

It’s currently on a FLASH SALE where it is 50% off the already low price until tomorrow.

I have this already and really need to follow it.

For people like me, who buy courses and then don’t do them, Naima has another answer.

You can rent the course for an even lower price and you get access for 14 days.

This means you will be sure to schedule and do the course so you don’t waste your money.

Take a look at the sales page to see both options.

My bonus: If you buy or rent Totally Trello through my link, choose any one of my bonus reports from the list at the end of this newsletter. 💖💖💖

MORE HELP TO GET ON TOP OF THE TIME SUCK 

I’m feeling very time challenged right now. I have everything in Trello but there are still too many tasks to do in too little time!

Partly because I keep taking days off (imagine!) and partly because I’m trying to squeeze everything in before I go away on Saturday.

That’s not just work, but shopping for the trip, packing, and making sure my son and dog have everything they need to hold the fort/survive while hubby and I are away.

My son would live on whatever is in the fridge.

But the world will end if Alfie pup doesn’t have his chicken treats and favorite dog food.  🤣

I wish I already had Leonie’s new Get Organized course but it’s starting on 1st May, so I’ll have to wait until I get back to do it while I catch up on 30 million emails and the laundry pile.

I’ll take the time to do the course because I really, really want to know how Leonie runs a 7 figure business with only part time help and gets it all done despite all sorts of challenges including ADHD and a young family.

If you don’t have your copy yet, you can grab it here before 1st May and join it live (or catch the replay if you can’t.)

As usual the sales page is super cool and totally Leonie worth a look even if you’re not interested in getting organized!

SERVING SUGGESTION 🤣

NEW: FONTASTIC FONTS 

Fontastic fonts

I love how Marian takes complicated processes and finds much simpler ways to achieve the same thing.

And then puts everything you need to know in short, very clear videos anyone can follow.

That’s exactly what she’s done with her latest course Fontastic which is all about creating your own fonts.

Creating a font has been on my bucket list for years so I jumped all over this.

Why would you want to create your own font?

Firstly, it’s a fantastic way of making your promotions or products unique to you. Whether you’re making web pages, logos, stickers, planners, or journals, no one will have anything exactly like yours. And your own fonts are perfect for creating PLR with fancier fonts where you are usually restricted to freely available fonts.

Secondly, you can sell your fonts in many different places online.

Thirdly, you can have a lot of fun with this. Not only making fonts in the first place but you can also make a font of your own handwriting and easily “hand write” a lot of notes for friends and family or quotes for books and social media.

Get all the details here and then jump on this during launch when it’s only $19 (ends 1st May)

My bonus: Buy Marian’s course through my link and choose a bonus report of your choice from the bonus section at the end of this newsletter. 💖💖💖

Tropical self-care

This Tropical Self Care Planner helps you choose your wellness goals, offering daily and weekly reminders, inspiration, reflection and tracking so you can create a self-care routine and stick to it.

It has 31 beautiful pages and is just $18.99 during launch until April 29th, 2022

See everything included here.

My bonus: Buy the self care planner through my link and receive any one of my bonus reports from the list at the end of this newsletter 💖💖💖

HANDLING REJECTION $10 PLR PACKAGE

handling rejection

There’s one thing you learn very quickly as an author and that’s dealing with criticism and rejection.

Self publishing helps avoid rejection letters but people can be vicious online.

The anonymity of the internet has a lot to answer for. ☹️

And of course you always pay more attention to “this really sucks” than you do to “this makes my heart happy” LOL

I used to pretend it wasn’t me on the receiving end by using pen names 🤣

But the funny thing is, if you search for the great works of literature on Amazon.com, you’ll find many one star reviews saying how terrible they are, so it’s all a matter of taste!

Anyway, it’s always handy to be able to brush off rejection and not let it ruin your day or your life.

And Justin at Tools for Motivation has brought out the perfect package for that.

Just $10 for this Handling Rejection bundle (no coupon required) until Friday April 29th.

This package includes articles, audio files, mini reports, slide decks, tip posters, and more.

Grab it quickly before the deal is over.

CONTENT CREATION MADE EASY

NOTE:  A few people have asked for one of my bonus reports when they bought one of my own products but I haven’t been offering these as I don’t want to compete with my affiliates who like to offer their own bonuses or who maybe don’t have time to make extra bonuses.
