Newsletter 28th August 2022: How to get motivated 🤔 and templates from a jar

by | Newsletters


Some people think that success comes from luck; others that it comes from hard work (or a bit of both!)

And I agree to some extent with the “hard work with a bit of luck thrown in” idea.

But you do need motivation to do the work in the first place.

And you need it to put yourself out there where lady luck can give you a helping hand.

The problem is that motivation to do difficult things doesn’t spring from the air, though many wait around expecting it to.

That kind of motivation isn’t part of your DNA either.

You’re not born with motivation or without it.

It’s a choice.

No one feels like doing the hard thing especially if there’s no immediate or certain reward.

But when you’re faced with a difficult action, you can simply choose to be motivated to do it.

You have to make yourself get going and once you start, more often than not, you’ll “feel like” continuing.

Motivation comes from action not the other way around.

The first step is the hardest.

This week, take the first step and see how much easier it is to take the second.   💖


Great new freebie in the P.S. below



plr cookie jar membership

I got a bit confused when I first saw the domain name of this site.

I thought it was going to offer recipes not PLR templates.

But a monthly pack of 30 PLR Canva templates is exactly what it offers.

The templates use only free items from Canva, Pixabay and public domain resources so you can edit them in your own Canva account.

And they come with MRR rights so you can sell your own version of the templates as PLR.

Just $14 a month.

without words artwork

Marian has a new course out which shows you how to use a free tool to create original and beautiful graphics (in over 10 different styles) for products you can sell on Etsy and other handmade sites.

The line drawing technique she demonstrates is one I love, so much so,  I chose that style of graphic for my Freedom from Overwhelm sales page.

Inside the course, there are THIRTY videos with easy, bite-sized lessons that anyone can follow (even the graphically challenged.)

And best of all, you can create original art with no drawing skills at all.

What I love about Marian’s courses is that they are full of ideas that you don’t see everywhere, but she does the research to pick out the ideas that sell, as well as showing you what to do in very easy steps.

The course is just $27 during launch (ends 28th) and will be $57 after that so take a look while the price is low.
