Looking for Free Traffic to Your Website?

No kidding right! Aren’t we all. Does it feel like you have tried everything and it still doesn’t seem to work. It can be frustrating. Isn’t free traffic to your website a human right? LOL Maybe we just need a strategy, or better yet ,maybe we need to know the right people who know what they are doing!

That’s why I am super excited that Paul B. Taubman from is going to be one of the speakers at this years Decide, Act, Profit event. I have known Paul for years. He is not only a super cool, funny, and brilliant guy – he also really knows his stuff when it comes to your website. He is going to be at the event all 3 days so that you can get your website questions answered.

I found this great blog post on Paul’s website called “Increase Your Free Traffic Using Your Blog”. Check it out.

It’s a great idea too. People love blog posts because they are short and get right to the point making them perfect for social media. They are easy to share and a great way to drive traffic to your website.

OK It’s time for you to Decide, Act, and Profit. Get your ticket for the event today so you can meet Paul and finally get a plan designed for driving traffic to your site.

Yes! It’s called Decide, Act, Profit

I love events! Attending events. Speaking at Events. And most of all hosting events. I love the look in an entrepreneurs’ eyes when that light bulb goes off. I love when they come back year after year to share everything that they have accomplished. This year something became really clear. The moment that you decide and act, is what leads to profit!

How to Find Inspiration Elsewhere (When You’re All Tapped Out)

When I was a budding entrepreneur, a big part of building my inspiration up was in following others who were already very successful doing what I wanted to do.

I followed blogs of people I admired, went to conferences, and just got around people who inspired me. I saw women entrepreneurs using technology to run their businesses, and it ignited a fire in me to do the same.

I longed to be around positive people who could lead me to my ultimate goal of building my own business.

I Really Screwed Up

Good is good enough! Yes, I believe that with all my heart. However, it doesn’t make it sting any less when I screw things up, and this time I really screwed up. I seem to screw up on a pretty regular basis. I have been known to put “message” in a Facebook post when I am on my way to get a massage. I am really good at calling people by the wrong name. I even send out emails with links that don’t work or go to the wrong place.

Why Your Email List Isn’t Growing

At my annual 3-day workshop where I teach marketing, I include a session called “Building Your Email Subscriber List With Hustle and Heart.”

I always emphasize in the session that the longer you wait to build your list, the more you let future dollars slip through your fingers.

The fact is, email marketing is still incredibly relevant even in the social media age. (eMarketer recently reported that 58% of people spend more time in their inbox than any other digital activity, including Facebook and texting.)

The problem for small business owners is twofold:

The Un-Launch: Are you a Heart-Repreneur®?

First, a ramble on how to un-launch a book.

A typical book launch online is all about offering scores of bonuses, asking all your friends to review the book, sending an avalanche of emails and then obsessively checking Amazon on the day of launch to see when you get on the best-sellers list. So you can say you are a best-selling author.

That’s not how this book was launched. In fact, it wasn’t launched at all. At least not on purpose.

Bad Habits Are Ruining Your Business

Why did you start your business? Probably had something to do with financial freedom or having more time to be with your family or being in control of your life. If that is not the reality you are living today, I am here to tell you it is all due to one thing – Bad Habits! Being an entrepreneur is tough and if you compound that with your own bad habits you will create the perfect storm that could capsize your entire business.

As a Love-Based Business Owner, What’s the Best Way to Handle Refund Requests?

Recently, in one of the high-level Facebook entrepreneurial groups I’m in, someone posted asking about handling refund requests.

In a nutshell, this entrepreneur had a very clear (and very clearly stated) guarantee policy on her sales letter, but she wanted to know what to do about people who wanted an “exception” made for them — specifically their lives changed since they bought the program (maybe they were in a car accident or their mother got sick or they had decided they decided they didn’t want to be an entrepreneur anymore and were getting a job) and now they wanted their money back even though it didn’t fit under the terms of the guarantee policy.

Grow Your Business with Likes

Is your business growing at a snail’s pace? You are not alone. When I do strategy sessions with my clients they are often frustrated with their progress. Do you want to know why your business is not growing? Are you ready for the hard truth? You need more likes…and I’m not talking about Facebook likes! I mean likeability. The truth of the matter is that people don’t just buy your product or service; they’re buying an image or feeling.
