HI all!

Just a VERY quick email tonight, as I am nose-to-the-grindstone getting the website updates in! Right now, I am herding close to 100 people and 80+ products to the finish line, so it's a little bit crazy right now!

The two screenshots above are the first products to drop for the October Kitchen Sink PLUS members, with more to come. You will find the link in your member area under "Active Resources" - I managed (with Ruthie's help - thank you!) to get it set up so that you will have ongoing access to past months without having to worry about downloading your products. Each month's webinar replays will be on that month's download page, as well. This month (October) we are going to learn how to create that really neat "Leather and foil" insert on the cover above as well as how to create a 'Stained Glass' Mandala using nothing but easy-to-find watercolor-style papers - and NO!! You do not need to be a PhotoShop guru for this!! In fact - you can use ANY image/graphics software that lets you create a mask ;-)

This month's Digital planner is a totally new VERTICAL design, with a gorgeous leather cover and desktop, while the Printable is in a coordinated design using vintage papers which work better for printables than the leather. The Lead Magnet will be added tomorrow, and I will have more papers and some special mandalas to add before our Workshop training!

Neil Napier's new launch, Membervio launched today, and like all of his products, it is off to a great start. I have most of Neil's software, in large part because he continues to develop and maintain his products more reliably than most developers in the Internet Marketing space. In a world of "here today, gone tomorrow", Neil's business model is a rare one.

On the pro side:
Membervio is a member management system, that seems a lot less complicated than aMember and is lower priced. It's more geared towards course delivery than PLR delivery, but the front-end offer lets you store 25 products or courses and 5000 members, which is still quite substantial for only $67. This is the launch price - there is an increase later today and I think it is around $10 more.

The Membervio option that is most attractive is the first OTO - 5 sites, unlimited products, and unlimited customers for $97 annually. aMember is $147 per site initially, although I believe their annual renewal fee covers the aggregate of your sites, not per license. And most of us seem to wind up with at least 2 sites and many have more. I have 3 aMember licenses at this point...

On the con side:
There is one feature missing in this Membervio new release that was in prior versions, and that is affiliate tracking. For some reason, they took it out of the new version. If your target market is consumers, and you do not need an affiliate program, then this is not an issue for you. If you want to sell courses - your own or PLR - then Membervio is a great deal and or many of you - Membervio will be a better option than aMember, ThriveCart, LearnDash etc in terms of both price and learning curve.

But if you have affiliates or plan to have affiliates - this will not be the right choice for you.

Membervio Features That I Like:
  • 100% Beginner Friendly and Fully Cloud-Based - so you do not need hosting or another website!
  • Create multiple options for monetization including direct sales, free trials, subscriptions, upsells, and affiliates.
  • Commercial license means you can build sites for customers or to sell (hellooooo Flippa!)
  • EASY TO CUSTOMIZE! Includes 10 themes that can be fully customized for your brand
  • Connect & automate everything about your business in one place…Your content, your marketing, your transactional emails, & your products
  • Deliver content via Drip Feed and modules
  • Simple, seamless integration with PayPal, Stripe, JVZoo, W+, and 6 more platforms... get you paid easier, faster.
  • 5 Ready-To-Sell Professionally Created Courses Included
  • Enjoy complete automation to manage users… from subscription to cancelation requests and everything in between
  • Use your own domain and brand
  • Create and track quizzes, worksheets and re-use lessons in other courses (BTW - this is a great feature that lets you easily re-use intros and instructions from course to course)
  • Step-by-step tutorial included
This is just a short list of the features, and Neil does have a long history of supporting and upgrading his software, so if this fits your needs - this is definitely a good price for all that is included!

Design Cuts Birthday Sale Is Here!

Design Cuts is having their 50% off birthday sale and I am stocking up on brushes, styles, layers and all kinds of goodies. They have a great selection on sale and include Affinity and Procreate tools as well. If you want to really have fun customizing your planners - now is the time to get the tools you need without breaking the bank! And yep, after the Summit we will be doing more workshops on how to use brushes and layers to create your own look and style without having to learn every little bit of PS (and most of what I teach can be applied to ANY image editing software - it's more about creativity and technique than the tools used).
And back to work!!

P.S. You can reach us by simply responding to this email - we actually do respond!! See all of our products or login to your Member's area at
