Are You Ready for WordPress 3.0?
Nina East - Wordpress Customization & Setup Expert

Ready or not, here it comes!

Actually, WordPress 3.0 will be super-exciting and I can’t wait for it to get here. There are some major changes that will make it easier for the average WordPress user to modify their sites, but if you generally aren’t an “early adopter”, then you may want to wait for the first revisions to 3.0. It has gone through painstaking testing, but once it is out among the millions of users, there are sure to be a few glitches found.

So what do you need to do to get ready prior to WordPress 3.0 being released?

First, if you are not already updated to version 2.9.2, then update lickety-split. (By the way, if you are not using 2.9.2, the latest version that was released 4 months ago, then you are most definitely not an “early adopter”.) While not all hosting companies will make 3.0 immediately available, you want to be in control of what version you upgrade to when. If you make sure you are on 2.9.2 now, you won’t have to worry about jumping from 2.5 to 3.0.)

Time Management Tips – How to Energize Your Spirituality by Evolving Your Relationship With Time
Paula Eder - The Time Finder Expert, Founder of Finding Time

Time management can introduce you to completely new and life-transforming truths! That is because exercising your power of choice over your time enables you to step off the daily treadmill and open to the timeless. As you become still, like a moonlit lake, you can reflect, in brilliance. Taking time to reflect is an active component of self-care. Because reflection develops your self-reference, it creates a foundation of wisdom. The more you reflect, the more motivated you become to set time boundaries that keep you in charge of your time.

Each pause provides you with a fresh opportunity to ground and energize yourself. Over and over, you re-connect with the moment, and with the energy that flows from that fundamental still-point. A further aspect of reflection points is summed up in the following quotation:

“Perhaps the truth depends on a walk around the lake.”

Authentic Marketing: How to Set Yourself Apart from Others
Admin Text-Only Editing - Text Only Admin

A common challenge for coaches, teachers, healers and other helping professionals is differentiating themselves from others in their fields.

The good news is you set yourself apart just by being born. People forget that. The nature of your unique life makes you different and makes you unique. I call this your intuitive intelligence.

You have not lived the same life that I have lived and neither has anyone else. Even if we have the same training and we sat down and decided to teach the exact same model to people, it would be different because we are different people.

Hold your hand up in front of you right now. No one shares those finger prints. Your marketing style, your business style, and your message all reflect that uniqueness.

Junebugs, Mentors, and Your Business
Admin Text-Only Editing - Text Only Admin

I love living in the Information Age, where my 7 year old asks me to Google “what’s the life cycle of a Junebug” after I told her I had no idea what their life cycle was. (I was trying to avoid the topic of how they mate wildly all night long each June, and seem to land in piles of blissfully deceased bug carcasses on my patio come morning.)

And even if I knew the answer to that question, would it make me an expert? Could I hang my shingle as the premier Junebug expert?

Of course not, it would simply fill my head with more random information that perhaps will serve me one day on a game show. Maybe.

But what if I spent years studying with Junebug experts, donning night vision goggles to document their nocturnal trysts? What if I had someone to answer my questions, to correct my erroneous assumptions, and to lead me to new discoveries?

Dream Big, Then Create Your Life and Business as if That Dream is Real
Admin Text-Only Editing - Text Only Admin

In a teleseminar I taught today, I spoke about how one of the ways to create a 6 and 7 figure business is to make sure you have clients with big enough goals. The reason is, it’s tough to grow a high end business if your clients think small.

One of the reasons I’m successful is I dream big, then create my life and business as if that dream is real. Before I know it, it IS real. Not only am I impacting my life for the positive, I’m helping my clients believe that what they want is possible for them, too. Which is why so many of my clients quickly accelerate their 1ncome, their confidence and their vision of what’s possible for themselves. They take action they never thought they would take.

But you can’t just “dream big.” You have to see it, smell it, feel it, want it, desire it, hunger after it, thirst for it, taste it and be willing to become who you need to be in order for the Divine to hand it to you. If that sounds tough for you then you’re not likely to ever really get what you want. If, on the other hand, you read again what I just wrote and say, “Oh, YES!” then I have good news for you: You’re likely to experience the reality of your dream in a heartbeat. So, start preparing, okay? ((-:

Cool Changes Coming with WordPress 3.0
Nina East - Wordpress Customization & Setup Expert

WordPress 3.0 is on its way soon…

This is a major update to WordPress software, full of lots of exciting changes. Some of the changes are more exciting to developers and designers than anyone else, but there are some that the average user will be thrilled with right away. (Plus you’ll be thrilled with what the developers find exciting, too, because it means they can do that much more for you!)

  • a very cool drag and drop menu feature (like on the widget management page) based on the navigation styling from Woo Themes. Not only will it make it easier for you to order what goes where on your menu, you’ll be able to easily combine pages, categories, and even specific posts or other links, on the menu. So if you wanted a link to BasicBlogSetup.com to show up on your site’s navigation bar, you could do it in a snap!

Hate Selling? Start a Movement Instead
Admin Text-Only Editing - Text Only Admin

I recently hosted an event in New York and a woman signed up for one of my programs. We’ll call her Sally.

About a week after we met, I had a call with her and she said, “I thought it was just wonderful how you did that entire day and you didn’t sell anything.”

I said, “Sally, you’re in my program. You bought something.”

And she said, “Oh, yeah. I didn’t notice.”

So that’s the ultimate goal. You should be so fired up about what you do and you’re just sharing your services and saying, “Listen, you want to play with me? Great! Here’s how you can play with me,” and you move on.

People will actually pay you money and they won’t even notice that you sold them anything.

It’s not about the sale, it’s about the message. The people who are lined up for your message are a natural fit, and it doesn’t even feel like a sale. They understand your message and they are ready to say yes.

Just Where do You Intend to Put That?
Marty Marsh - Follow-Up & Stay-In-Touch Marketing Strategist

A question from a reader this week prompts today’s tip.

Beth’s son is designing her logo and she was wondering, primarily, if he should create her logo in a software program (like Illustrator or PhotoShop) or simply draw it and scan it in.

I advised her that, because she’s going to be using her logo in a variety of places anyway — almost all of them online or in some other electronic media — that it would be best just to design it from the get-go in some kind of software drawing or photo program.

And that question reminded me that when it comes to designing a logo for your business you really need to also think about all the various ways — and places — you intend to use it.

You’ll want to make sure that it will work successfully — that means that it will be readable and identifiable — no matter where you put it.

Find Time to Explore Your Inner Twitter
Paula Eder - The Time Finder Expert, Founder of Finding Time

Finding time to engage with tweeps on Twitter, while not losing yourself to cyberspace, is an ongoing challenge.  In previous posts we’ve talked about using a timer to manage your Twitter time (as well as your time on other social networking sites).

If you haven’t found the time to buy yourself a timer yet, here’s an elegant little idea from Inner Twitter for bringing mindfulness to your Twitter time.

How does it work?  When you go to the Inner Twitter site you’re offered three different tweeps to follow.  Each one sends out a “chime” message on different time schedule. As a follower of a user with a particular chime schedule you’ll receive the chime at its designated time, and then you can choose how to respond to it.  Here’s a sample message from @mindful15:
