Review: "2021 PowerSheets Planner" for Motivation and Goal Setting

 

 

If you're looking for a MEGA POST on all things "PowerSheets" by Cultivate What Matters, here you go! PowerSheets is a goal and motivation planner for 2021.

 

This post contains affiliate links, which means I may receive a commission, at no extra cost to you, if you make a purchase through a link. Please see my full disclosure for further information.

  

It includes not only ANNUAL planning but, new for 2021, also has a focus on 90-DAY refreshes. {If you haven't yet read "The 12-Week Year", check it out to learn how much more effective 90-day planning is than annual planning}.

I'll go into a LOT more detail below but what makes PowerSheets special is that it's colorful and happy, that the company supports you throughout the year, and it makes goals and planning fun and interactive.

As a blogger, I was chosen to be an affiliate for Cultivate What Matters products including PowerSheets. That means I was able to place my order early so...

The Top 8 Reasons Your Kajabi Site Needs a Blog


 

One thing I've observed in my 4 years as a Kajabi user is that many Kajabians seem reluctant to blog. Since there's a blog feature baked right in to Kajabi and we all have access to it, I wanted to take some time and explain why all businesses should be blogging and, therefore, why your Kajabi site needs a blog.

Blogging Statistics Show How Important It Is to Use Your Kajabi Blog

Let's start with a few stats, so you're not just taking my word for the importance of blogging with Kajabi.

According to the search engine optimization site SEO Tribunal:

Companies who blog receive 97% more links to their website

57% of marketers say they’ve gained customers specifically through blogging.

Companies that blog have 55% more visitors to their...

Hey there! If you're not a follower of Marie Forleo's and/or an alumni of her online business program called B-School, this post might not make much sense to you, lol.

... That said, everyone is, of course, welcome and encouraged to read. It's actually a good lesson for ALL online marketers, coaches, thought leaders, and, well, anyone who uses Facebook groups in their business. 

 

This post may contain affiliate links, which means we may receive a commission, at no extra cost to you, if you make a purchase through a link. Please see our full disclosure for further information.

 

So, here's the scoop: 

As of 08-10-20, the main B-School Facebook Group called "B-Schoolers" has been turned into a "legacy" group and will no longer be run by Marie and Team Forleo.

There were over 31,000 members in this active group that had been in existence for, I believe, over 10 years. So, yeah, it's a big deal.

Online Course Platforms: Kajabi vs New Zenler vs GrooveFunnels

courses kajabi review Aug 10, 2020
 
Recently, someone in a business Facebook group asked for an opinion on these 3 course platforms: Kajabi, New Zenler, and GrooveFunnels. I wrote such a long response that I decided to use it as a draft for a blog post, lol. So here's my highly unconventional assessment. 
 
Links in blog posts may be affiliate links. At no extra cost to you, if you click one and make a purchase, I may receive a commission for having referred you.
 
I've been with Kajabi since 2016 and did a LOT of research and analysis on course platforms and "all-in-ones" before I chose them; clearly, I've been super happy with Kajabi . At that time, New Zenler and GrooveFunnels weren't even around.
 
But I've checked into both since then - because I like to keep up on what's out there for courses/memberships - and so far I've not been impressed (this could improve over time, idk).
 
Note: Please don't think I'm "Kajabi Only, rah rah rah!" I routinely refer people to other GOOD...

Kajabi How To: Create a Contact Form (Plus a Mistake to Avoid and a Tip That Helps!)

 

 

On your Kajabi website, you'll definitely need a way for people to contact you, whether it's to ask a question, offer comments, share an opportunity, etc. As with many things, Kajabi does contact forms differently than other platforms like WordPress and Squarespace.

I see a lot of questions about this so I want to explain the big picture about Kajabi forms in general, how to create a contact form, and then share a no-no + give you a sweet extra tip to making responding to inquiries even easier.

Review: "Legal Bundle Value Pack" with Instruction and Templates

Image by Kate Max Stock

One of the most important questions creative solopreneurs should ask ourselves is: Am I legally covered for the business I do online - my website, blog, services, courses, etc.?

 

Content Creators Like Us Need to Legally Protect Ourselves

As you know, this is a BIG area of responsibility we have and includes things like: terms and conditions, privacy policy, disclosures, disclaimers, cookie policy, and more - AND it all must be appropriately GDPR, CCPA, and FTC compliant (depending on where you're located, where your traffic is from, etc). 

Over the years, I've stayed on top of this the best I know how but, dude, it's hard when you're a "company of one", amiright? I really hope but don't know for sure if I've dotted all my I's and crossed all my T's. It's been heavily on my mind that I need to get this dialed in, as I sure don't want to do something wrong and have to pay fines or have it impact my business negatively.

8 Myths About Starting a Business and Working from Home

solopreneur work at home Mar 31, 2020

 

Links in blog posts may be affiliate links. At no extra cost to you, if you click one and make a purchase, I may receive a commission for having referred you.

 

In this time of social distancing, financial hardships, and so many employees being furloughed, I'm hearing a lot of talk about how, especially as a Kajabi expert and partner, I should be encouraging people to start their own businesses. With an all-in-one business platform like Kajabi, they can start a side hustle now for future security (should things get worse) or maybe they need to jump right into full-time self-employment.

As much as I want to get behind all of this, I do have some reservations and this is why: There are clearly a lot of myths about working from home and about home-based business ownership. (Note: Our health crisis is a serious matter and humor is one way we're getting through it. Please know this post is tongue-in-cheek).

For instance, people think it's easy, anyone can do...

Roundup: Resources, Freebies, and Discounts for Crisis Times

courses solopreneur Mar 20, 2020

 

As many of us are now sequestered at home during the "Covid crisis", I thought I'd share some resources I've gathered from around the interwebs to educate, inspire, and calm you. 

It's been heartening to see the generosity of individuals and companies during this time of challenge for us all. Whether you want to learn something new, find work, or just pass the time, I've got you covered. 

Please note that some of these things are always free/discounted/available, others are time-limited. So if you click a link and don't find the offer I mentioned, it must have expired (womp womp ... sorry).

 

Links in blog posts may be affiliate links. At no extra cost to you, if you click one and make a purchase, I may receive a commission for having referred you. (Especially in this time of upheaval, I really depend on my affiliate income. I hope you don't mind me using affiliate links. If you ever want to bypass them, just go to the site directly.
