    5 Tips To Start Selling Your Self-Published Book


    You’ve spent hours researching, writing and self-publishing your book. Now, you want to reap the benefits of selling it yourself, but where do you begin?

    Here are five simple tips to help you get started.

    1. Figure out your market.

    “Bookstores are lousy places to sell books,” says self-publishing guru Dan Poynter in USA Weekend . “Find the places where your audience gathers and sell directly to them. If your book is about cats, go to pet stores.”

    To start selling your book, take the time to research your target audience. Who will be interested in purchasing your book and sharing it with their friends?

    Once you know your target market, look at the places they shop and spend their leisure time. What media venues do they watch, read and listen to on a regular basis?

    Create a list of all potential organizations, business and groups. This will give you a good understanding of the online sites and brick-and-mortar locations where you need to focus your marketing efforts.

    2. Spread the word.

    When you are ready to start selling, don’t be shy. Talk about your book, carry a copy around with you and look for every opportunity to mention it. … Read the rest

You want your readers to feel like you are talking to them as a friend, but I would recommend not getting too personal. The nice thing about blogs is that you can receive feedback on your content via comments. You can also use the blog to ask questions to your readers or hold contests. Your readers can enter

    Work at Home Mom – 5 Tips for Long Term Success


    Work at Home Moms (WAHMs) have to spend their time wisely in order to succeed – after all, they are working two jobs!  While building long term success requires some of that precious time upfront and an ongoing commitment to your business, the rewards are well worth it.

    5 Tips for Long Term Success:

    1. Create a business plan.  In order to achieve your dreams and goals, you must first write them down.  If you don’t know what you’re working towards, how can you measure your progress?  On average, approximately 67% of people have specific goals.  Of these 67%, approximately 10% actually have those goals written down as a business plan.  Surprisingly, only 2-3% of them go on to achieve their goals.

    What did the 2-3% do differently?  Their written plans were more than a simple statement of their end goal.  You must go beyond that and break it out into the steps required to achieve your goals, including deadlines and benchmarks.  Once you determine what steps need to be taken, you also need to decide which tasks you can do yourself and which ones are better suited for outsourcing to a virtual assistant or some other resource.  You can’t … Read the rest

    In contrary to popular belief, many people assume that a Work at Home mom has plenty of time and can act like a lady of leisure at home. This is far from the truth as there are more deadlines and shorter exclusive time which you can use to focus on your work.

    What is a Purposepreneur?


    According to an entrepreneur is defined as “a person who organizes and manages any enterprise or a business, usually with considerable initiative and risk.”

    In recent years, several versions of the word ‘Entrepreneur’ have been used to reflect a specific group of people. Most of them are self explanatory based upon the name. Here are just a few of the ones I already knew about or was able to find on the internet:












    Being a mother myself I was very familiar with Mompreneur and have even read the book that explains and discusses what a Mompreneur is in detail. Well, one day I started thinking about the many years that I have aspired to become an entrepreneur, but I never really got anything off the ground because I didn’t think many of the business opportunities I pursued in the past would have fulfilled my purpose in life. While I wasn’t really sure what my purpose in life was at that particular time, I knew in my heart there was one. So, the light bulb came on and the word Purposepreneur quickly came to mind. I knew that was

    7 Ways to Say No Without Feeling Guilty


    It’s such a small word but so difficult to use sometimes. We seem to use this word so easily with our spouse and children but have a hard time saying it to other people.

    So the trick is to figure out how and when to say no. I’m not saying that you should be selfish and never help anybody out. However, most people are running around stressed because they’re saying yes to everybody but themselves.

    You should only be saying yes when you genuinely want to do something.

    You feel excitement at the thought of doing it or it ties in with your life goals or definition of success.

    You don’t have to have another appointment first in order to say no

    If you’ve planned to have an evening in (bubble bath, reading, TV, whatever…) and you get invited out, this does not automatically mean you have to accept. An appointment with yourself is just as important as one with other people. Value your time! Realise that when you say yes to one thing, you ALWAYS say no to something else.

    When this happens, you usually say no to the more important parts of your life – God, family, yourself. … Read the rest
