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...

As a creative entrepreneur, you likely know about Canva and have been using it to create graphics for your blog, social media, presentations, etc. I wanted to share 8 quick tips straight from Canva.com on how to accomplish some things you may not know about yet.

My NON-Affiliate Review of B-School Plus a List of Affiliate Bonuses

It's B-School launch time!! That means you're likely being inundated with emails and social media posts from former B-School students enticing you to join the Marie Forleo program. There's a big reason for that: the B-School affiliate program.

Unless someone (like me) comes out and says they are NOT a B-School affiliate, you can assume they likely are one, especially if they're offering bonuses or special programs if you sign up through their specific B-School link. 

What's in it for them? Keep reading ...

The Story Behind B-School Affiliates

Marie has hand-selected B School alums to be her affiliates which means they promote B School and she pays them a (cough cough pretty hefty cough cough) commission for each sale. Okay, let's be real: They get 50% of the $1,999 sign-up fee. 

For the record, I have absolutely no problem with this because I'm an...

These Kajabi Online Course and Membership Topics Will Surprise You!

 

If you hang around much in the online courses and marketing world, you can get the impression that the only people making money are those who are teaching others about coaching, online business, marketing, blogging, etc.


Can You Sell Courses on Kajabi That Are NOT Coaching or Online Business Related?

While it's true that those are clearly the most popular topics to offer courses or memberships on, there ARE other options. Ever since I joined Kajabi in 2016, my eyes have really been opened to the HUGE variety of learning topics out there!

So I did a quick case study for you by scouting around KajabiLand for unusual course topics. Then I compiled this list to show you that if you want to teach a "non-traditional" subject, you can definitely do that! Here's your proof.

Creative Solopreneur: Are You Overwhelmed by All the Tech in Your Business?

 

If you are, you're definitely not alone. I think tech overwhelm is one of the biggest problems we have in business. By nature, we creatives are "ooh, shiny object!" people because we're easily fascinated and our minds are so open to new ideas.

But when it comes to running an online business, those traits can also be our downfall. It can be difficult to zero in on just a few solutions that will actually meet all of our business needs. Ummm, we're not so good at saying "NO" to possibilities, are we?

Tech Overwhelm is a Real Problem for Creative Solopreneurs

 Here's why:

- It distracts from your real goals
- It stalls your progress
- It takes you away from your creative work
- It takes you away from serving your people
- It costs too much
- It destroys your confidence
... and it can even make you...

A Review of Feminine Stock Photo Memberships & How I Chose One ...


Creative entrepreneurs and coaches can really benefit from buying a feminine stock photo membership. Images for your blog, website, social media, and products are so important to get right and help to establish your branding.

 

 

Why Do I Need a Feminine Stock Photo Membership Anyway?

There are lots and lots of stock photo sites out there, which have a huge variety of images. Some of my favorites are Unsplash, Pixabay, and Pexels. I use those sites to source free images for use in general blogging, social media posts, client's sites, etc.

But for this website, I really want to appeal to my target demographic: creative entrepreneurial women. Therefore, I need 2 things that I can't get on the types of sites mentioned above.

First, I need quick and easy access to feminine, creative, office- and technology-related images; not just flat lays but some with women in them too. Second, I need "brand builder" sets of photos, which have a consistent look...

8 Places Creative Entrepreneurs Can Work Away from Home

One of the best things about being an online entrepreneur is that we get to work from home, right? But sometimes that gets lonely, distracting, or downright claustrophobic. Here are 8 places creative entrepreneurs can get out of the house and work.

 

1. Outdoors - at home

After being cooped up inside so much, it can be really nice to not only leave the 4 walls of your home office but to also get outdoors. My first suggestion isn't that far from home; it's actually AT home  :) How about your own backyard, front yard, porch, or patio? You can set up with your laptop and mobile phone at a patio table, Adirondack chair with a comfy pad, or a chaise lounge (this seems like the ultimate in luxury, doesn't it? You deserve it!). Another option would be to spread a blanket on the grass with pillows to support your back or sit criss-cross-applesauce. 

Pros: Access to drinks and food; ability to recharge your devices; a new perspective including things...
