Me, I am here to connect with motivated women who are aching to change their lives and that of their families by transforming themselves. Women who are just DONE accepting broke as a lifestyle. For me, it was all i’d ever known. Dreamscaping changed my life… Thank you Mark Hoverson.
But this blog post is about my weekly method of operation…. I run 2 businesses. #1 I am a coach. For a monthly fee, I offer one on one sessions as well as support and training via a FB group. #2 I am an online marketer. I sell my own digital products as well as affiliate products and services. (Most of my coaching clients have bought a product from me 🙂 )
Basically, my business is connecting my target audience (who are versions of myself) with the resources I’ve used to transform my life.
I wrote a post called “If I only have an hour a day”
A good friend pointed out that while simple and straight forward to me, my business ritual may be overwhelming to someone new to the field.
So I wanted to take the time over the next week to break down my routine.
You should be able to do these tasks quickly even if they are uncomfortable.
Remember that growth happens outside of our comfort zones.
My action items are on a google spreadsheet so I can easily track my progress and keep myself accountable.
Google is my best friend in business.
Actions I take on a weekly basis for my business are:
Connect with 5-10 new people
Follow up with 5-10 people
Add 5-10 people to my newsletter
Invite 5-10 people to view a presentation
Create content to post to my social media platforms, send to my list, and post to my blog
Post 3-5 times on my social media (I’m using FB & Instagram)
3 times a week, I publish a new Blog post
3 times a week, I email my list
Post 10-20 ads in FB groups
Personal Development! I listen to a morning wake up call Mon-Fri. I am always reading a book. Currently, it’s “You are a badass” by Jen Sincero.
Training! I am always improving my skills. Right now I am working on a course by my Mentor Diane Hochman called Twist my List. I’m going through it as well as hitting a few live training webinars weekly
So get ready for a 10 part series: Breaking down my W.M.O.
Internet Marketing or network marketing didn’t become my career overnight.
It started back in 2002 when I responded to a newspaper ad.
I believe it was for a company called Neways. They sold carginegon free products for your home and body.
I bought a lot for myself but didn’t sell any.
So I quit.
In 2008, I joined Herbalife and went through tons of their training. I even had good results regaining the weight I’d lost from my divorce with one of their products.
I never made one sale.
In 2012, I started selling memberships to The Wellness Company known as Melaleauca.
I loved the prodducts for myself. I signed up my best friend! I worked the business!
I earned my first check of $56!
I got discouraged, because I still spent more than I earned.
After about a year of doing childcare from home while trying to be a network marketer, I had gained almost 40 lbs.
So one night at like 2 am, I ordered INSANITY off of an infomercial. ShaunT is amazingly inspirational.
My third day in I pulled a muscle in my core. I wasn’t following the modifier. I hadn’t exercised in years.
2 months and a move later, I signed up for shakeology, ordered hip hop abs and started jogging with my roommate.
I lost 35 lbs and signed up as a Beachbody coach in June of 2013.
I was again doing childcare from home and working my network marketing business.
I was again spending more money on the products then I was making.
I loved the company, the products, the results, the training, everything was perfect.
But I still wasn’t making sales.
I joined a training company called ILN (Internet Lifestyle Network) in November of 2013.
I learned so much about attraction marketing, blogging, shooting videos, and so much more.
In February of 2014, I joined Mary Kay. The passion in that room full of entrepreneurial minded women was inspiring!
I went to my very first leadership event hosted by the Home Business Academy at the end of the month.
It was a spur of the moment decision that just felt right after being on a training webinar.
I had no idea how i’d get there, or come up with the money for a room and food.
Someone had seen my dedication and hard work.
A friend booked my flight and room. It was meant to be.
I was in awe of all the fire and passion that came together in that space.
I realized the only thing holding me back was my lack of self confidence.
I cried when they spoke of the next event.
As a single mom of 5 at the time, I had no resources.
That afternoon, the last day of the event, I was invited to attend as a guest by a paying attendee.
I cried, I laughed, I hugged her, I shot a video, and I went home determined to get it figured out by the next even 6 weeks later.
At that event, I was asked to speak. It was brief, and I was incredibly nervous. I spoke about how i’m able to create and post content daily.
A whole lot of life happened, and I ended up moving back home to the beach in June of 2014.
We lived with my sons father in his 2 bedroom apartment. 5 children and 2 adults.
We got our own place in November only to have such issues with the owner and the condition of the unit that we had to move back in with my sons father in April 2015.
Lincoln City is a tourist destination, and a large percentage of the homes here are 2nd homes or vacation rentals. Family homes are rare, outrageously expensive, and require a pristine credit history.
My eldest daughter was having a horrible time with the transition and her behavioral issues led eventually living with my mom.
I handled stress very poorly and got a D.U.I. on the 4th of July.
Adam (son’s father) had gotten injured while playing tag at the park during our end of the school year party and required surgery on July 14th.
We found out we were expecting on July 21st.
The simplest way to explain affiliate marketing is that it is a method of making money online where you as a publisher are compensated for helping a business by promoting their product, service, or site.
Basically, you as a publisher earn a commission when someone follows a link on your blog to another site where they then buy something.
Commissions are often a percentage of a sale but can also be a fixed amount per conversion or sale.
Affiliate marketing seems to work best when there’s a relationship with trust between the publisher and their readers.
Most people who try it make very little as it relies upon a lot factors including:
technical skills to start and manage a blog
traffic (high traffic helps a lot)
having readers who are in a ‘buying mood’
finding relevant products
finding quality products
building trust with your readers
being able to write good sales copy (and more)
There’s also some risk associated with affiliate marketing. If you push too hard or promote products of a low quality, you can burn readers and hurt your reputation and brand. No one wants to be pitched to all the time. Be careful when deciding what you want to present to your market. An over-saturated audience will lose interest.

Do you have an idea or vision that’s burning inside you?
A passion that you’re ready to embrace in the new year?
I knew my voice carried a message that would benefit women just like me… and I knew that there are HUNDREDS of women just like me in the world.
But then I struggled for 3 years trying to teach myself the technology side.
I went to 3 leadership events in 2014 and was invited to speak during the third.
I got a chance to share the strategies that were helping me grow my network marketing business while being a single mom with 5 children.
But I was still stuck… Still not earning money.
Getting a website set up with a lead magnet on a capture page sending my leads to a thank you page with a sales offer while adding them to my follow-up series….
That seemed like the scariest thing in the world to me, because I couldn’t seem to get the time I needed to learn the software and implement before I forgot it all again!
I made more money in my business in 2016 then I have made in all the previous years combined.
I now spend the majority of my “work” time with clients.
I now get paid to research and write about topics that I am genuinely interested in.. like marketing, increasing your credit score, generating income, time management, meditation.. etc..
Those clients are other entrepreneurial minded people who are now confident in their vision! Confident in the plan we’ve created together.
Those clients are getting results!

I love Monday’s.
It hasn’t always been that way.
In this moment, Monday’s for me means a quiet house.
Kids are at school, Adam’s off to work. Just Tavia and I. and Raven and Poe.. And Morris.
okay but it still “feels” quiet.
Because right now I have 3 sleeping animals in the room with me and Tavia taking her 3rd name of the day.
Monday’s I get to “work” by chatting with new friends, catching up with old ones.
Learning something I’m interested in. Writing about it.
LIstening to music.
Dancing while doing the dishes.
I do dishes.
