You sit down at your computer with a cup of herbal tea in hand, noticing the fresh creamy hydrangeas on your desk. And, of course you smile, gently touching one of the petals.
You know it’s a tad silly to splurge on fresh flowers every Monday, but you spend time at your desk working each day, so it’s worth it.
Anything that creates that giddy I’ve-made-it feeling is worth it.
You scan your email, noticing that you’ve got 84 new comments on your latest blog post. One comment says, “Thank you so much for writing this post. It’s exactly what I needed to read right this second. You’re the only blog that I have to read every single time you post, because I don’t want to miss a thing.”
And, if you counted right, your PayPal account grew another $1328. Overnight. Like magic.
Except it’s not magic. You did the work day after day. Now, you see the rewards and can’t imagine life any other way.
You open up Spotify and click on your “inspire me” music list. ‘Best Day of My Life’ by American Authors pulses out of your speakers and you start to sway in your seat, singing along off key, of course.
At your right sits a pile of prints and original paintings to be shipped.
Thankfully, your newly full-time assistant will be doing all that for you today, because you’ve built a business around the stuff you actually love doing.
You glance at today’s to-do list:
- finalize today’s blog post and publish (and this post gives you that tingly, I-know-my-readers-are-gonna-love-it feeling)
- update Pinterest and Facebook (which you’ve mastered and truly enjoy the thirty minutes you spend on social media each day)
- work on that new painting that’s finally coming together (your absolute favorite part of the creative process)
- and if time permits, move onto another painting (which you’re hoping for cause a new idea has been tugging at your brain)
You sip on your tea, while publishing your blog post and then you move to your sketchbook to get that creative energy flowing through your blood. You’ve got another thirty minutes before your assistant arrives. Why not play a little?
Does this sound like a dream?
It is for most creative entrepreneurs. But, it can become a reality.
You can build a successful business around a life you’re excited about living.
And, I want to help you get there.
Most creatives I know that are actually making good money from their crafts say that their blogs were a HUGE reason their businesses have been so successful.
It’s how they reach their target market. It’s how they let their customers know about new products, sales and exciting updates. It’s how they share their hearts, thoughts and ideas with the world.
And, tomorrow, I’m teaching a course all about blogging and you can watch it for FREE and download the 75-page workbook just by RSVPing right here.
Through my blog I’ve: sold out group coaching programs, landed speaking gigs in front of thousands, been featured in Where Women Create, been interviewed for U.S. News and World Report, met my partner-in-crime, Mayi Carles, and so much more. My business wouldn’t be even close to where it is today without my blog.
If you’re thinking about starting a blog, have tried the whole blogging thing and gave up or blogging just doesn’t seem to work for you, I’d love for you to join me live May 1st-3rd and walk away feeling confident that you can build your own successful creative blog.
If you watch my workshop, you’ll learn how to:
- set blogging goals you’re honestly excited about reaching
- find your ideal reader and get her to read your blog
- make blogging oh-so-much fun so you don’t fizzle out after only a few months
- develop a content plan that’ll have you saying adios to blogger’s block
- distinguish yourself with style and voice
- write personality-filled copy that gets people to actually click on your headlines and read your posts
- take professional-quality photos for your blog
- promote your blog and increase your readership in way that feels good, avoiding those icky marketing tactics that make your stomach flip flop
- monetize your blog (yes—actual money in your piggy bank!)
- balance blogging and life (because having the tools to build a successful blog mean nothing without actually doing it)
If you’re interested, you can get FREE access if you watch the course live.
I’ll be taking questions from viewers online, so you’ll be able to have some control over the direction of the class. And, I’ll give you as much personal feedback as possible.
