Not since I reviewed Gina Horkey’s course, 30 Days or Less to Freelance Writing Success for The Write Life, have I reviewed another product. I’m doing it again because someone could benefit from using the service.
I’m going to share my experiences with using the service. Not only will you get a look into what I liked and disliked, there’s a free premium membership up for grabs. Ya feeling lucky? more “Grammarly: An Honest Review and Giveaway”
You may have noticed I’ve been rather ghostly lately. Please rest assured I’m okay. I suffered a few personal setbacks last month. Believe it or not, they actually worked to sharpen my focus and keep me on track toward my financial goals. Doors opened up for me that wouldn’t have otherwise done so. Some might call it luck. I choose to believe that I’ve learned enough in my journey thus far to have brought about the best possible results I could have given that situation.
Just like in my last income report, I’m happy with my results. I’ll break them down for you for each month. Then, I’ll end with February’s numbers and my hopes as I move onward into March. more “My January and February 2016 Income Reports Kicking Butt and Taking Names“
As you sit down to dinner tonight, surrounded by loved ones, think about what you want to be thankful for next year. It’s easy to find the good in the last 365 days.
The best way to show your gratitude for your blessings is to appreciate them. Work for your goals and set new ones. There’s only one way to growth, forward.
This year, I give thanks for my new business. It’s not where I want it to be, but I’m 100% better off than I was this time last year. For that alone, I smile.
And now, I’ll share with you what I learned from Lesson 29: On Blogging and Email Lists. more “My Sweet November: Day 26 Happy Thanksgiving!“
In Lesson 28: Hire a Mentor, Gina says she began working with a mentor from the very beginning. I keep thinking I should do this, but I’m not exactly sure whether or not I should pursue it right now.
Taking on this project means that other things get pushed back. The mentor thing is one of them. Ideally, I’d love to work with Gina because she’s exactly where I want to be in seventeen months. I just haven’t approached her, yet.
Anyway, here’s what I learned from today’s lesson in 30 Days or Less to Freelance Writing Success. more “My Sweet November: Day 25 How to Hire a Mentor“
When I first saw that word, Gravatar, I didn’t know what the heck it was! I didn’t know if it was a website or dinosaur.

Have you ever noticed all the blank spaces on social media? Many of us don’t take full advantage of the fields available. We discount them as part of the minutiae no one ever sees.
This useful real estate goes unused and becomes a part of the background noise. Instead, take advantage of those spaces. Use them to showcase your bio. Here’s how to write one. more “My Sweet November: Day 17 Drafting a Biography“
