4 Things You Should Do FIRST When Starting a Business

starting a business

I can’t tell you how many times people have asked me when I’m speaking at business events or coaching or consulting or just chatting with another blogger or entrepreneur, “So where’d you go to college?” or “What’s your degree in?”

It usually surprises people to discover that I never went to college! And I’m not ashamed of this fact.

I think that college is a great choice for many people and degrees can certainly be very necessary and helpful for many people and professions.

However, I don’t regret my decision to not go to college.Continue Reading

Guest post by Micah Klug from HomeFaithFamily.com

If you’re not careful, you can easily find yourself feeling trapped and unsure of where to go with your blog.

This is especially true when you focus on other bloggers’ successes and you easily forget what’s working well for you. The truth is, it’s important to stop doing what other bloggers are doing and instead focus on the quality you can give your audience.

5 Things To Do When You Get a Negative Comment

negative comment

Over 13 years ago, when I first started blogging, I picked a lot of fights with people by blogging on hot topics. And I expended a LOT of energy defending my positions in lengthy comments and posts.

Guess what happened?

Well, for one, I realized (after a few long years and a whole lot of cringe-worthy posts) that I didn’t really know what I believed and needed to stop touting the beliefs and convictions of others, to step back and do my some deep soul-searching and understanding of why others believed differently than I did (instead of just adopting the prideful “I’m right; you’re wrong!” mentality).Continue Reading

What You Should Know About the GDPR

You’ve probably heard about it by now — that thing that has every online entrepreneur around the globe scrambling to overhaul their current email management systems, privacy policies, and lead gathering strategies. What am I talking about?

I’m talking about the GDPR.

In case you haven’t heard about it yet, GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation, and what some people don’t realize is that it’s actually not new. The GDPR was actually created on April 14, 2016. (Yes, it’s been around that long!)

So what is all the fuss about now if the GDPR isn’t actually new?Continue Reading

2 Things You Should Do Every Day as a Blogger

How do you have an endless stream of post ideas?”

I get asked this often. So this week, I’m sharing two things I do every single day to stay inspired as a blogger.

These things aren’t rocket science. They are simple. Anyone can do them. But I know many, many bloggers who aren’t doing these two things, and I think it might be why they are struggling to keep their momentum going as a blogger.

Want to know what the two things are that I think you should do every day as a blogger? Well, I mentioned both of these in my 10 Strategies to Never Run Out of Blog Post Ideas post, but I wanted to dive deeper into them in this post:Continue Reading

How Google Analytics Can Help Grow Your Traffic

Guest post by Micah Klug from HomeFaithFamily.com

How many times do you spend checking your pageviews and mentally willing your numbers to increase, only to be disappointed that you’re not seeing any results?

(I’m raising my hand.)

When I first started blogging in 2017 I was so focused on trying to do everything at once while creating amazing content, that discouragement came so easily.

I questioned whether waking up at 4 a.m. to work before my little ones woke up really mattered and if I’d see results in my business or not. And then something happened in December of 2017.Continue Reading
