10 Things I wish Bloggers Knew about YouTube

When I started publishing weekly blog posts and videos in January 2015, I thought I knew what I was getting into.

Let me tell you about my business “by design”

Let me tell you about my business “by design”

In 2017, I joined James Wedmore's “Business By Design” program, and while it is soooo informative, I think his BBD videos (launch videos) make it feel like you'll be rolling in a Tesla by next week. I want to give you a more “real life” example of what a “business by design” looks like (especially as a blogger), from someone who just recently joined the program.

Bullet Journal for Beginners – My BuJo Review after 3 Months

Bullet Journal for Beginners – My BuJo Review after 3 Months

The term “bullet journal” hit my ears for the first time just a few months ago, and I immediately binged on “Bullet Journal for Beginners” videos to see what all the fuss was about. Once I learned what Bullet Journaling was, I was instantly intrigued. I started right away with a Moleskine that I had laying around, and one week in, I was totally hooked. I'm an official BuJo convert now. Be sure to watch the video to see what I mean! 😉 Here are some of my thoughts after Bullet Journaling as a Beginner, after doing it for 3 months. (more…)
