The tag line for ErikaFriday.com is "Kajabi and Marketing for Creative Solopreneurs." Is that you? Are you in the right place?
When I started the site, I had my own list in my head about what professions I considered to be creative entrepreneurs/solopreneurs. To make sure I was on the right track - and wasn't leaving anyone out - I posted a survey in an online business Facebook group and here's the list we crowdsourced:
brand strategist/branding expert
creative virtual assistant (VA)
digital product designer
fiction and non-fiction writers
social media manager/strategist
Hey creative entrepreneur . . . this is for you. This site is for you and, as I was conceptualizing it and building it, I always had you on my mind.
I want this to be the perfect place for you. To that end, I "re-did" Marie Forleo's B-School which included going through the lessons again, with this site and with you in mind.
I found the process fascinating! So I thought I'd do a little blog post and share my notes and thoughts from my B-School homework. This post derives from B-School's "Start the Right Business," Lesson 3. Here are the questions and my answers.

I’ve scoured the interwebs and found 101 planners for you to check out!

I started following Jessica Turner's blog, The Mom Creative, because we have a lot in common so I enjoy reading her stuff. We're both moms who work at home, we're bloggers, and we love taking photos.

I enjoyed following her journey as she published her first book called The Fringe Hours: Making Time for You.
Here's a blurb about it:
For the woman who is doing everything for everyone--except herself: Ever get to the end of the day and realize you did nothing for you? In this practical and liberating book, Jessica N. Turner empowers you to take back the fringe hours--those little pockets of time you already have in your day--in order to make time for your passions and practice self-care.
Based on original research, The Fringe Hours helps you overcome common hurdles that prevent women...
You are no longer beholden to employers - to someone else - for a job or career. I believe that the internet has changed everything.
YOU are now in power.
YOU now get to decide.
What work you do,
when you work,
where you work,
when you'll take time off,
and how much you're paid.
I believe that you CAN make a living from your passion if you choose to. You can take your loves, your hobbies, and your talents and make money from them online.
I believe that there's no such thing anymore as "I can't find a job." MAKE A JOB. Even if it's temporary while you search for a job like your old one or the one you went to college for.
I believe that it's not easy,
you have a lot to learn,
it won't happen overnight,
and you won't be rich tomorrow.
But you CAN do it.
It WILL happen.
I believe in YOU because you're smart, you're driven, you work hard, you have talent, and you have passion.
