Starting Up An Online Business

Have you ever thought of starting up an online business? It’s great for those who want to work from home, or those who want a side hustle to earn some extra cash, but it can also become a full time business with a full time income.

When I was doing a 3 hour daily commute to work I dreamt of being able to work from home, No more getting up before the crack of dawn, no more sitting in traffic for hours every day, and no more bosses to drive me nuts. Do you sometimes dream about what that could be like? I made it happen though, here’s how…

How To Make This Year Your Best One Yet!

Are you wondering how to make this year your best one yet? Have you got lots of plans and hopes for your blog this year but are a little afraid of putting them into action in case they don’t work out?

Oooh, I know exactly how you feel. I know because I felt the same the year before last. I had so many ideas and plans and knew just what I wanted to achieve, but do you know what happened in the end? I failed.

Yep, I pretty much failed at everything that I had set out to do. My plans came to nought. I made nowhere near my financial target. I didn’t get anywhere near the number of subscribers I thought I would get. I got nowhere near the number of visits to my blog that I thought I would get. I made so few sales that year that I might as well have not bothered even trying.

I was embarrassed, I felt miserable and disillusioned, but to be honest, I was mostly annoyed with  myself. Here’s why…

Why I Started A Blog In My 50’s

The other day a friend of mine asked me why I started a blog in my 50’s. She hinted (although didn’t come right out and say it) that blogging was for younger people.

At the time I gave her my standard answer of wanting to be able to work from home and work at times that suited me and my family rather than times that suited someone else’s business needs.

But when I got home, I thought about it a little more and realised there are many reasons why I started a blog in my 50’s. I thought I would share them with you so that you might be inspired to start one too…

When Should You Get A Mentor?

When should you get a mentor and how much should you pay for one? I hummed and ahhhed about this for months when I started my blog. There seemed to be no easy answer as everyone I asked had a different opinion.

Some said you could find everything you needed online for free. Others said that everything online was outdated and no longer relevant.

Some said that mentors were a waste of money and others said that they were worth their weight in gold. So what was I meant to do? I’m going to share what I found out too late in the hopes that you don’t make the same mistake…
