    6 Painless Tips To Create More Effective FB Ads

    I promise this will be the most painless lesson about Fb Ads EVER. Up until a few months ago I hated Facebook. Loathed it. I mean the nerve of this “business” to actually try to make a dime off of all of us other businesses trying to make a dime! (Said like this, it makes me feel a little silly that I actually thought like this) Blasphemy! Okay now that you are done crying, complaining, and realizing that life in general is not fair, and nothing is essentially free, especially when you are trying to build a business or make money with your blog, put on your best big girl…

    How I Grew My Business From $0 – $100,000 (in a year) On a Blog And A Prayer

      Its official. What I dreamt about for so long and thought was “unachievable“ I achieved. I wanted to make 6 figures. And I did. In a year. From nothing. Yeah I’m proud, but mostly humbled. Because my life since leaving full-time grunt work almost 3 years ago, has been one long roller coaster ride. Fun. But not without stress, lots of wine, and about 25 pounds that I now have to find the time to somehow work off. Part of me feels silly. Because I could have done this YEARS ago!

Launching new products and services is essential to the success of your blog. What’s holding you back? Launch. Remember the kid at the pool who isn’t afraid to dive right in? No need to test the waters, think about it, or get in slowly. That kid knows one thing for sure: that…

But why still, do people still manage to come up empty handed or making very little from all their hard work and passion? I say enough. There is no magic formula, there is no quick scheme, but if you put in the work, you should be making money from your blog. If you aren’t, then you it’s time to figure this thing out. Because I know that if I can do this, then anyone can…

    When Life Gives You Lemons, Mix With Vodka (on the rocks)

    I’m going to tell you exactly how you are going to get through the tough times of life (and business). It’s got a lot to do with growing a pair, but more to do with vodka. Or wine, but you can’t mix lemons with wine… Oh nevermind.. Bottom line: shit gets real. Running a business is not for the faint of heart, blogging is for bosses, and you either go BIG or go home on the Internet. You are one in a sea of many.. Don’t believe me? Go play on StumbleUpon for 5 minutes… You’ll see. Persistence pays off… But only if… Persistence is great. Keep trying, I’ll be…
