Today we are talking about some myths of freelancing. I want to clear up just exactly what freelancing is not. Freelancing for me was freedom. Freedom from working for someone else. Freedom to do whatever I pleased. Freedom to make money the way I wanted to make money.
How many of your friends work from home? How many stay at home moms do you know that run an online business? How many people do you know that are trying to promote a side business online in addition to their regular 9 to 5? The answers might surprise you more than you think.
The trickiest part of starting your new online business is always the same thing. Not the website. Not the social media. But getting the clients. How can you actually get people to give you money when maybe you don’t have a portfolio or maybe you aren’t 100% sure of what you are even doing. Maybe […]
You started your business online to help people. We know that. But it also needs to make money so you can buy food and stuff. So when you are in a mindset of helping people, how do you sell things. Well, my first tip is to not sell them. Instead, sell yourself. Most of my […]
People say a lot of things about freelancing. What it is and what it isn’t. Well, in today’s episode I’m going to set things straight. Here is the good the bad and the beautiful of freelancing.
So many times I hear from people how nervous they are to launch their website. Well, I’m here to tell you, launching your site is only the first part. It’s what happens after that that can be scary. In today’s episode, I talk all about my summer fun and what happens after you build your […]
You know you’ve thought about it. You’ve sat in your office and stared out the window (if you have one) and said, man, it would be nice to be anywhere else right now. Summer’s are especially hard. All those people going to the beach. I couldn’t take it anymore. I had to quit my job. […]
Referrals have been a huge part of how I get new clients. I make my client experience so amazing that they recommend me to their friends. How great it that! But it’s more than just me being so awesome. There are things you can do to help get you referrals as a freelancer.
If you haven’t tried ConvertKit, GO TRY IT NOW!!! I was so happy when I finally made the switch from MailChimp. Mailchimp was great when I was starting out, but nothing compares to how easy and simple ConvertKit is. It makes so many things easier for me and it integrates with just about everything!
When my business got to the point where I need to hire people to help me, I was in shock. My business had actually grown to the point where I couldn’t handle it all anymore. I needed to hire people to help me build websites and create social media plans and more. It was an […]
My husband probably thought I was crazy when I told him I wanted to quit my job of benefits and steady income to do freelance work. He had already seen me making some money from it but certainly not enough to pay our bills. So I’m sure he was pleasantly surprised when I actually started […]
Think about your business a bit. What are the things you have to do for your clients every single month? What are the things you have to do for your own business every single month? Chances are, someone out there doesn’t want to be doing those things and would happily pay you a monthly fee […]
There are so many different email list providers out there. I know. I’ve worked with just about all of them. There’s MailChimp which is a great solution if you don’t want to invest any money just yet. All the way up to Infusionsoft which is like the Maserati of list building. Personally, I prefer ConvertKit. Let me […]
My business started with just me. All alone. Running around like a chicken with its head cut off to get things done and learn all at the same time. Plus you know, life things like getting married or remodeling my house. I am still in awe sometimes at how I got all of that done. […]
Content is king. Yes. No one will debate that. But you want to make sure you are getting the most out of your article writing. Your articles should be helping to promote your website and your business. Here are some tips on the importance of article marketing.
Personally, I only like to add affiliate links to products I have actually used and loved. I certainly don’t want to promote an affiliate link to something I’ve never tried or even worse had a bad experience with. That’s not being honest with my people. So here are some tips on affiliate marketing you should […]
I hope you are using inbound links in your website. Especially in your blog posts. When you link to another site and they link to you, it makes both of your websites stronger in the eyes of Google. And that’s a great way to increase your traffic. Here are some tips on inbound links.
You probably are already pretty active in Facebook Groups. And those are amazing for making new connections online. But for SEO purposes, they aren’t really doing anything for you. Online forums are just like Facebook groups, but those links can get your website more backlinks.
For my blogger friends, I have good news. You are already doing this. And that is a HUGE thing you are doing for your business. For my website owner friends, if you are not writing articles, go write one. Whether it’s for your own blog, an online magazine, a newspaper, a guest post, whatever. Article […]
Online marketing for real estate agents is a bit different than it is for a regular blog or website. You’re selling a person’s home or helping them buy a new one. That’s a very personal thing to be doing. You can help people with your website not only find a home but also get to […]

I have a confession. I don’t have a huge list. I’m not making six figures. My network is not that big. But I love what I do and I keep doing it everyday. Someday maybe I’ll even make Carrie Green status! But for now, my business is growing. I’m growing. And in order to do […]
I hired a professional to remodel my house. Why? Cause no one wants to see me with a hammer in my hand! Computers yes. House repairs no. My husband is the opposite. Computers and electronics do not do well in his hands. But he knows how to lay tile in the bathroom! I’ve also been […]
I’ve written a book. That’s a pretty big accomplishment. I know a lot of people who say they’re going to do something or they think about doing it. But to actually write your book and get it published. That’s a huge accomplishment. To everyone who has done it, I say amazing job. To the rest […]
A lot of people think building their website is the hard part of online success. Well, I have some news. It’s not. It’s actually the easy part. The hard part comes once the site is up and live and seen by the world. It takes dedication. Monthly, weekly, and daily tasks are created to make […]
It happens to us all. We sit down at the computer to write something and everything goes blank. Zero. Nada. Niente. Nothing comes out. All those brilliant ideas you had in the shower or while washing dishes, gone. Where did they go too? They were genius!!! Now you not even sure the difference between nouns […]
Today I’m going to answer something I hear from A LOT of people. They want to know how I get everything done. When you run a blog or website there is so much work to be done. Between the daily blog posts to the social media posts to the landing pages to responding to emails. […]
