A travel addict is someone who loves travel more than the average person. I’m using the word addict with slight exaggeration here.
A travel addict is a travel lover. Maybe you can relate? You travel as much as you can, as far and wide as you can. During times when you don’t travel much, you feel a gaping hole in your life.
Here are five qualities of a travel addict.
You make travel plans and follow through with them. Period. Whether or not anyone can come along, you’re booking what you want to book. If they can join you, fine…
Boohoo! A lot of things in life are hard but we still need to do them.
But it’s time to accept reality. Fight against reality and you’ll lose. Every time.
The reality is there are things you need to do to move your life (business/website/book project) forward. Writing is one of those things.
And, again, it’s hard. I have been a writer for over eight years and I still whine and squirm and make twisted faces sometimes when I sit to write.
Now that we agree on the tedium and mental anguish of writing consistently, here’s how you…
Writing is hard. Writing fast is even harder.
It’s not impossible. Just hard. But like most things, it gets easier the more you do it.
I want to help you write faster. But I don’t have a magic pill (sorry, I’m not Morpheus and this isn’t the Matrix).
What I do have are eleven solid strategies to help you write faster.
This isn’t about lowering the quality of your writing. You’re always aiming to write books you can be proud of. But it is about finding your sweet spot, your groove. The conditions and habits that foster faster writing. …

Do you want to journal but don’t have the patience or discipline to get started and maintain the habit? Welcome to the Lazy Person’s Guide to Journaling. I’ve simplified journaling so that no matter how lazy or unmotivated you think you are, you can build this habit. I’m going to share a few ideas for gaining the benefits of journaling, without it being time-consuming and all-encompassing.
Set a timer for just a few minutes. Who said you must spend 30 minutes journaling as part of an elaborate morning routine? Try…
Ideas for building a marketing ecosystem that works for your business
The funnel marketing model reigns supreme online. Most entrepreneurs have been convinced it’s the most effective strategy for launching and marketing to potential customers and clients. But is it the best and only way? What if instead of creating funnels, we built and nurtured marketing ecosystems?
An authentic approach that may work for you
Have a scroll around social media and look at profiles and feeds. You’ll find a lot of posing, performing, and caricature creation. Not just people using the platforms for fun, but entrepreneurs, too. People focused on putting out a certain social media image of ultra-likable or super attractive feeds, faces, and food. There’s a lot of staging going on.
Now, of course, this isn’t all of social media. There are some people doing amazing work and showcasing that work on these platforms.
But it’s rare.
There’s currently a ubiquitous song and dance…
Don’t focus on more subscribers, focus on more connection.
Everywhere you turn, people emphasize that building a large email list is a fundamental part of selling online.
‘The money is in your list.’ ‘The more subscribers you have, the more money you’ll make.’
That’s just some of the buzz around list building.

Scrolling around a website, you click on a link for a program.
On the program sales page, you notice three things:
Thing #1: There’s a taunting ticking timer in the right-hand corner counting down.
Thing #2: The program is only on sale/available for the next ‘x’ number of hours.
Thing #3: There’s a ton of copy reminding you:
…that you only have so much time… you must act now or you’ll miss out… and your life will never get better…. and that once this offer goes away….you’ll regret it…not just today but you’ll live a life of regrets….and …
7 Things You Must Include in Your Website About Page
By the time I was 10 years old, I’d lived in three different countries. We moved a lot. The culture shocks became tolerable by the third move. What wasn’t tolerable were the self-introductions I had to make at various schools.
Sometimes I had to stand in front of the class and introduce mself. The horror!
Writing your website About page can feel terrifying, too. But it doesn’t have to feel that way. …
How to own your full life experiences
I lay in bed, eyes glued to the television. I didn’t care that it was 2:47 am, that the house was quiet and I should’ve been sleeping. None of that mattered. The exercise infomercials grabbed my attention and wouldn’t let go. Many a night in my late teen and early twenties, I’d stay up gorging on these programs. You know the ones; they’re a mix of cheesy marketing slogans (“But wait, there’s more!”), smothered with heaps of before and after stories and images. (“Before, I was fat. But look at me now!”)
