Happy Friday!

WOOT WOOT!!! My almost-daughter-in-law texted me a couple of hours ago, with a tip on where the vaccine might be available - and it took a LOT of tries, but I have an appointment on February 21 at 10:45 am - 60 miles away in Dayton!! Bob has spent the whole week trying to get me booked locally, and it has been a no-go everywhere, every day. Yes, I find the vaccine a scary concept, but COVID scares me more. Not an easy decision at all but...I am booked....finally.

I cannot believe it is Friday already - this week FLEW by, and I honestly feel like I accomplished nothing that was on my to-do list - even though I know that is not true! The problem is that I just kept thinking of more things to add to that darned list, so it never gets any shorter! LOL, I KNOW that I am not the only person that experiences this, and I am trying hard to be kinder to myself in this regard but I have to admit that I actually love working, and enjoy the challenge of finding new ways to build my business, drive traffic and make money! I know we need have an income to pay the bills - but does that mean that we can't make it fun and enjoy the process? No, it does not! You do not necessarily have to be passionate about what you are doing - but you should enjoy it, and it is vitally important that you not HATE it, no matter how profitable it is!

Interestingly, I promoted and purchased a course a few weeks ago, and the bonus I offered was a 'walk-through' accountability group. The group is small, and we were all fairly disappointed with the course but we decided to follow through with some of the concepts such as planning out the product launch calendar for the year. For me, just sitting down and planning things out was a bit of an eye-opener, as there were some things that were SOOOO easy to schedule - because I enjoy them! - and others went onto the calendar kinda grudgingly!! Yep, they are there but I will be outsourcing some of those tasks otherwise I am likely to just keep pushing them off to another day...or month...

I am not passionate about the low-content space, but I truly enjoy the work, I have a blast with the amazing people that I have met (you know who you are!), and I have a great deal of fun creating the artwork for my planners. This is something that I can see myself involved with and expanding on for many years to come. It is a great foundation that I can use as a launching pad for many other niches that I want to explore, and of course, for the events that we are doing with the Kitchen Sink Mastermind.

And one of the things I AM passionate about is learning - and this is a niche where I find something new to learn and explore every day, whether it is a new PS technique, a new marketing edge, or just a new WordPress update - every day brings a new challenge, and I love that about being online. It forces me to use those brain cells every day!

And yes, I was the kid that spent her Saturdays in the library - and not the kiddie section, either. Once a nerd always a nerd ;-)

How do you feel about what you are doing right now? Is it what you want to be doing a year from now or do you need to tweak things a bit to bring some enjoyment to your work? I ask myself this at least once a week and at least for now, I like the response my inner nerd is giving me ;-)

Free SEO Course
From Debbie Gartner, AKA The Flooring girl - a lady who definitely knows her stuff, since her flooring blog does more than $20k per month in ad and affiliate revenue!! And the big news? This woman answers her own email - yep, I had a lovely convo with her this week and wound up purchasing her Easy On-Page SEO (for beginners)
I purchased 45 Not so obvious lessons I learned on the way to making $20,000/month a while back and loved it - she seems like the 'real deal' rather than another corporate-owned blog!
