Making Money Made Simple Doing What You Love!

Making Money Made Simple Doing What You Love!

It is no secret that if you do what you love, then you never have to work a day in your life ‘- so the cliche goes. Today, let’s talk about making money made simple doing what you love! This article is all about your motivation in making a change and doing things differently to produce different results. Let’s get started.


I was reading a very interesting article just the other day about making money ‘in your field of passion’. So often we hear about how you can make money doing the things you love or are passionate about – then the next set of questions that follows:

  1. What am I passionate about?
  2. Will it make money for me, really?
  3. What if it doesn’t work?
  4. What if it’s not right for me? In other words, what if you start this project, invest money, make some money…or even a lot of money…but end up hating it?!?

Let’s examine all these ‘what ifs’.

What Am I Passionate About?

I know, from personal experience, it is not easy ‘deciding’ what it is that fuels your passion. We are all good at something, the true question is what is it that excites and drives us. It really is easy to come up with possibilities. Here are a few tips to help you decide:

  • Make a list of the things you enjoy doing and 3 columns – good, better, best. Be honest with yourself. This way you can gauge your feelings.
  • Does anything on your list excite you to the point of oblivion? Meaning, once you get started, time stands still until 3 am the next morning where you find that you had EVERYTHING on hold including your meals, bathroom breaks, sleep, life.
  • Ask the people you trust what they think about you and your list. Sometimes the eyes of the innocent bystander will speak oodles of truth to you, pulling the blanket of confusion from your eyes.
  • Be confident in whatever you decide. And remember, if that does not pan out, there are still more things on your list to try.

Will It Make Money For Me, Really?

making money made simple

Aaah, the constant question about the remuneration part of our passion – yes, the moolah! Don’t get me wrong, I think money is great. I respect it. I, too, want more and a lot of it. However, we need to remember this little point – it is also something we hear a lot – ‘if you love what you do, the money will follow.’

Sure, it does, but the question is WHEN?!!

The whole making money thing is a process and like most processes, it takes time, and this brings me to a more salient point for us all…PATIENCE!

Yes, a great virtue and one we need to exercise more, especially when it comes to making money made simple by doing what we love.

I am guilty as charged, however, I work on it every day – it’s the only way I choose to know! It is a personal commitment to be patient with myself and know that ‘Rome was not built in a day’, just started on one and so I begin.

So, not to digress – yes, it can make money for you; as long as you are patient with yourself, make the right connections, utilize the best sources available to you and prepare yourself for success – a prosperity mindset!

What If It Doesn’t Work?

Yes, we are talking about the worst procrastinator available to us – FEAR!

Of course, not to be naïve, things can and will challenge us along the way, however, if you do NOTHING, nothing happens…and I know we have all proven that.

It is called STATUS QUO.

Of course, we need to remember Thomas Edison, he tried and tried and tried – he found 999 ways that would not work and in the end, found the one way that worked and gave us the light bulb.

So, I am not saying that it will take a MOUNTAIN of an effort to make anything work, but I am saying that you might do a few ‘repeat efforts’ to get where you prefer to be, i.e. making big-time money.

All that said, remember, you ‘have to be in it to win it’ – you have to take that step and a few more steps to continue the journey. And somewhere along the way, you will start seeing progress and those little steps will also serve as your motivation too.

Much success on your journey to making money made simple doing what you love!

How would you like to learn how to post on a blog like this one?

You can put your thoughts on paper but learning how to build your own blog is something different. If you have the right training it is not that difficult.

When you learn how to build your own blog you get to choose the things that you write about. You can also use the blog to make extra income. Here is where I learned how to build my own blog and connect with people who helped me along the way.

What ARE We Willing to Commit to Become Successful?


Hmm…that is such an interesting question, isn’t it? I mean we all dream success, but what are we willing to commit to become successful? what are we willing


Did you know that there is a bit of blueprint to help us become successful? Well of course it has been studied to the tiniest detail.. the idea of what makes success.

For some of us though, we like actionable steps, yes?

After watching Brian Tracy’s Secrets to Becoming a Millionaire, I got this feelng that wow, we can all really do this.

And so I took some of the exercises he suggests and thought perhaps I could share them.

So you can see if you are also fully committed to success and becoming a millionaire. Or at least work towards that goal of success. NO matter what niche or work you do!

Exercise , what are we willing to commit? 

  1. Our time
  2. our resources
  3. our not seeing failure as anything but lessons learned
  4. all skills are learnable.. are we willing to commit to learning?
  5. willing to find a successful person and follow what they did,  then duplicate it

Two things we need to follow this path, ready?

  1. Sense of Control , willing to take full control and responsibility of our lives and actions
  2. Sense of Coherence, learning how things fit together and following the connected dots

what are we willing

Here is the exercise: 

Take out a sheet of paper, and write down 10 Goals.

Now out of these 10 goals which can you accomplish in a short period of time?

Which one truly impacts your life?

Now turn over the paper and write the list again. This time using that number one goal as your end game.

Now write down what you will do every day to make that goal happen. And if you can write down 20 things that you will do to get you there.

And then commit to those actions. If it helps, set a time limit. ONe month or 12 months. But every day you follow those goals.

According to Brian Tracy just doing this one thing completely changes your life. You know why?


what are we willing

Because we change our thinking. We change our ability. We see our self worth change. Wow, pretty powerful yes? 

Are you ready to make those changes? I did hear you say yes..right?

What do you think you can do in a short period of time? Double your income? Change the way you are thinking? Become more responsible to your own goals?

We are all self employed. Yup, even if we work for another. 

Interesting thought.. does it make sense to you? Well this is how Mr Tracy describes it. No matter how or what we do, we are all self employed because of our level of responsiblity. Hmm!

So even if we work for another our level of commitment to that position shows our level of being self employed because ultimately if we are not working for ourselves. We are losing ourselves. We are commiting to not being a success.

Not the way we want to go, right?

I really like this concept, do you?

Interested to learn and master engagement with Facebook? Here is this free Ebook . Do give it a whirl..and if you scroll all the way to the bottom there are bonuses and a program that teaches how you can  make $100 per day with 2 hours of work. 

Being Willing to be willing to commit… that is huge..and that means success!

With everything we do , we make a decision how we interact or complete a task. So if we knew what with every task we are working on we are building a foundation to success, would that not help us to stay fully responsible and committed?  When we hear as Brian Tracy says, it takes 5-7 years to become successful. We ultimately groan and go…no way. .not going to invest 5-7 years..

Really? Those 5-7years will still be passing us by.. why not make them be living the dream we want?

And to me that means we stop any sort of excuses.. nope cannot do this. .or this won’t work. . Nope that is not the mind of success.

what are we willing

So here is my question to you.

What is your most reachable goal? And what are you willing to do to get there?

Be willing to learn? Be willing to put in the time? Be willing to know it might not work at first? And still keep going?

The more we commit to ourselves, the more energy we have, the more we love our life. And everything around us has a diffrerent vibe and trajectory. So that no matter if you are in any niche. This is how we be our best. We learn how to give to ourself the priceless gift of a well lived life, yes?

Take out that piece of paper. Write it down. And see yourself flying into success. Know that the road means peaks and valleys. But with each valley comes amazing new learning tools.

And don’t forget, gather people around you who honor your drive and who are being successful themselves. We don’t want negativity and can’t do around us. Do we? Changing transforms our thinking. Choose our relationships with care.

what are we willing

Activate the Law of Attraction..and be the magnet for success and amazing people.

For we are so worth it!

And now we are living it, yes?

Because there is no one out there quite like you. And you are unstoppable, So get it done. As our mentor Bo Tipton says, on the NOW plan. Time is passing anyway.. let’s make it count. What are we willing to commit to become successful? Are we willng to give this gift to ourselves? Knowing we can? 

Cannot wait to hear what your new goal is, and how you are going to make it happen. Do write it below. And if you want, include some of the daily steps you are going to do.

I want to double my income in 12 months. Think I can do it? Yup just wait and see!

In peace and gratitude,

Founder, CEO,, living one heart-centric moment at a time!



Secrets to Becoming a Millionaire- 12 from Brian Tracy

My Mentor in my online business, Bo Tipton, encouraged our mastermind group to take a look at a video today, by Brian Tracy…wow, what great tips and fundamental secrets to becoming a millionaire he gives!

One thing Brian says is that the pace of new millionaires being made is increasing exponentially, day by day…it is possible for any of us, with the right mindset and actions.

12 Secrets to Becoming a Millionaire

I’m going to briefely give you the 14 I pulled from the video…and I encourage you to go to the video yourself, too.

I’m also goimg to tell you about a great course I’ve found from a self-made millionaire hypnotist that covers many of these same secrets, and helps to embed the millionaire mindset right in your brain to make taking action to become a millionaire that much easier.

Brian Tracy begins by saying that becoming a millionaire is within the reach of every singel person, if you will just do the things that millionaires do.

These secrets have been studied extensively over the past 50 years, and written about in many books.  Everything can be learned, he says…and that’s absolutely true I believe.

Getting the mind reset of the course I recommend will help make it easier sooner…

He says most of us are just one skill away from breaking into earning twice what we are now…we can all learn new skills…

Here are the secrets he outlines:

dreaming big is one of the secrets to becoming a millionaire
dreaming big is one of the secrets to becoming a millionaire

#1- Dream Big

Imagine specifically what you want 5 years from now.  Make a dream list, with no limitations.

#2- Do What You Love

People tend to be good at doing what they love…many very successful people don’t even consider what is making them money work because they enjoy what they are doing.

#3- Commit to Excellence

Aim to be in the top 10% of what you do.  Mediocrity is not an option.

Recognize that it takes 5-7 years to get to the top 10%…he says, if you think that’s too long, consider the alternative.  The 5-7 years are coming…what makes sense for you to work toward during them?

#4 – See Yourself as Self-Employed

It’s not a matter of who is writing your paycheck.  No matter who that is, you’re working for yourself.

Millionaires know they are responsible for their own lives, no one else!   They take charge of their lives.

#5- Have a Clear Sense of Direction

Be goal-oriented, he says.

Make a list of 10 goals…then select the one that would make the biggest difference for your life.

Make a specific plan of the steps you need to take to get to your goal.

Know that there is a price to pay to get what you want, so set your sights, be willing to pay the price, and take action every single day.

#6- Failure is Not a Possibility

It is the fear of failing that stops us.

In reality we each fail at things every single day.

The key in the secrets to becoming a millionaire is to look at a failure as feedback, leaving us free to take our next steps more intelligently, as Henry Ford said.

#7- Dedicated to LifeLong Learning

All knowledge is advancing so that half of what we know now will be obsolete in two years…continuing to learn is vital.

Brian Tracy recommends reading books in our field 30-60 minutes a day, taking courses from experts and listening to audio programs in the car.

#8- Develop a Workaholic Mentality

He recommends the 40 Plus hour workweek…the average millionaire works 59 hours each week, he says.

One caveat, is work when you work.  Don’t waste time socializing, and shuffling papers.  Play when worktime is over, not during your work hours,

#9- Surround Yourself With the Right People

You pick up habits and actions from the people you spend time with.  Make sure you are picking up winning habits.

millionaires solve problems, not get stopped by them
millionaires solve problems, not get stopped by them

#10- Be Prepared To Climb From Peak to Peak

Going straight up is not the real world.  There will be peaks and valleys.

It is the overall trend up that counts, and you need to be prepared for setbacks and problems…even crises,

It is how you handle them that matters…they will happen.

Developing Resilience and Bounce-Back is one of the secrets of becoming a millionaire.  Be solutions-oriented.

#11- Be an Unshakable Optimist

Optimists are people who look on the positive side of things…with the results that

  • they learn more
  • they try more
  • they don’t quit

#12 – Have Courage and Persistence

Having courage is the antidote to fear of failure, he says.

There are two kinds of courage he discusses:  the courage to begin without guarantees, and the courage to persist and never give up.

The Bonus Master Key

Brian Tracy cites Napoleon Hill for this one…the master key, the big secret, to becoming a millioniare is


How much our mentor has emphasized this point to us!

  • Laying out out workday, and sticking to it
  • Consistent application of what we have learned
  • Steady posting and editing
  • Social media interaction 3 times a day optimally
  • Commenting on blogs of others in our field with backlinks
  • Testing and honing and perfecting our work

In our mastermind group, we have been priviledged to learn from our mentor, and then to pass on what we are learning to our readers.   We are all lifelong learners together, yes?

I recommend your listening to the video attached above, and also taking a look at this easy to follow six steps to getting the mind of a millionaire downloaded to your brain, so you can more easily put these secrets of becoming a millionaire into practice in your life.

Just How Well Can You Keep A Secret?

Just How Well Can You Keep A Secret?

can you keep a secret

Can You Keep A Secret? Well, I sure hope you cannot keep a secret because everyone needs to know about this! Yes, the information in this ebook will help you with your Facebook engagement and audience reach. You owe it to yourself to make yourself ‘heard’ and ‘seen’ when it comes to using Facebook.

I am talking about the FREE ebook – Facebook Secrets Revealed!


facebooksecrets revealed

Let me tell you a little bit more.

Have you heard about Facebook?

Well,Facebook ‘is an American online social media and social networking service company based in Menlo Park, California. Its website was launched on February 4, 2004, by Mark Zuckerberg, along with fellow Harvard College students and roommates Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz, and Chris Hughes.’ [1]

The main aim was to present a social presence to young people just like themselves.

The founders initially limited the website’s membership to Harvard students. Later they expanded it to higher education institutions in the Boston area, the Ivy League schools, and Stanford University. Facebook gradually added support for students at various other universities, and eventually to high school students. Since 2006, anyone who claims to be at least 13 years old has been allowed to become a registered user of Facebook, though variations exist in this requirement, depending on local laws. The name comes from the face book directories often given to American university students.’[1]

Snapshot of Facebook, Inc.

Social network company

Facebook is an American online social media and social networking service company based in Menlo Park, California. Wikipedia

Headquarters: Menlo Park, California, United States Trending

Stock price: FB (NASDAQ) 201,50 US$ -0,50 (-0,25%)

Founded: February 2004, Cambridge, Massachusetts, United States

CEO: Mark Zuckerberg (Feb 4, 2004–)

CFO: David Wehner

Founders: Mark Zuckerberg, Eduardo Saverin, Dustin Moskovitz, Chris Hughes, Andrew McCollum

Subsidiaries: WhatsApp Inc., Oculus VR, Onavo, Sharegrove Inc.

As of statistics collated in January 2018, Facebook has more than 2.2 billion active users each month. Isn’t that simply amazing?

Facebook can do a lot of things for your business as well as your personal life. Can you keep a secret? Well, here are some things you can do using Facebook:

  • Create a personal page – here it is mainly about interacting or engaging with others that you have called friends; or your family as well as company contacts. You can write or post just about anything within the limits of the Facebook guidelines. You basically ‘stay in touch’ with your immediate circle of friends
  • Create a business page – this is where you are a bit more discriminatory. You need to add posts about your business and remember that you are catering to your audience for marketing purposes. Now, this is not to say that you have to be boring, absolutely not, you just need to be conversational and interesting.

In my ebook – Facebook Secrets Revealed – here are some of the things that you will learn about:

  • why post on Facebook
  • let your friends meet your friends
  • post pictures along with quotes
  • let people know you are real
  • talk about your niche & ask questions
  • have FUN

It will give you guidelines and ideas to help make your post interesting and how to garner the engagement that you seek which will also improve your traffic – something that any online business venture needs to make its name.

Of course, I hasten to add on very important fact – you have to be consistent. You have to develop a routine and keep doing it. I would suggest 30 mins (at least) every day. Use this time wisely. Try not to get carried away in the ‘drama’ of everyone’s posts and forget your main task.

You need to interact with at least 10 of your friends and see what they are ‘up to’ by ‘liking, commenting, and sharing’ their posts. This is how you get feedback, start a conversation and keep one going. This way there will always be something to talk about.

Well, I hope this article helps your business and by all means, go ahead and don’t keep the secret, tell everyone about my free ebook – Facebook Secrets Revealed – and how they can use it to master their Facebook posting, gain more engagement, and build their traffic.

So, can you keep a secret? I sure hope not!

4. Google Alerts, are you using alerts yet? Well if not, you pick the keywords that are specific to your niche as your alerts. Google will then send you emails that show conversations happening specific to your keywords. Then you go to that spot and use it as a free traffic avenue. Sounds workable yes?

Do You Have the Brain of a Millionaire? Is There Such a Thing?

How to have the brain of a millionaire
How to have the brain of a millionaire- is it possible???

Is there such a thing as having the brain of a millionaire?

Or is it just a big excuse all wrapped up in bows and ribbons?  An excuse for failing to succeed?

The research shows that millionaires do have different brain connectivity than do people who are poor.

There are tons of self-help books, workbooks, videos and other resources to be found if you google millionaire mindset or any variation thereof…the wholefield is basically a money magnet because people want to have the ability to get what they really want – and work for- in life.  If having some course that will transform yours  into the brain of a millionaire will work, why not?

The question is, is there a way to get that kind of brain?

I guess you can retrain your brain with a bunch of self-help exercises and workbooks.  Who am I to say some or even all those will or won’t work?

I, like many of you, have taken courses and workshops, done the work – all to retrain my brain.

You see, I grew up in a family where I witnessed wealth around me, nearby, but out of reach.  It was not part of my mindset from birth that I was going to be rich and able to do for others the things I would like to…not monetarily anyway.  I was raised to be generous with my time, with my talents, to make sure I worked hard, and to pay my bills…but not to be rich.

I was not raised with a millionaire mindset…I did not have the mind of a millionaire. 

So, over the years, I’ve done some work on that mindset I inherited from my growing up.   Can you relate?  Have you done some self-help on your own mindset?

become a money magnet by reshaping your brain
become a money magnet by reshaping your brain

Some self-sabotage can creep in

Do you know what I mean?  Have you built something…a business of your own perhaps, that was almost on the verge of awesome success, and then just ended up mediocre, or maybe even collapsed into failure?   I’ve done both…I am proud to say!

Why am I proud to say that?

Because my falling short of my hopes and dreams for my life have led me on.  To find the secret to success.  I am proud because as long as I am still on this earthplane, I will not give up.

I believe in the Law of Attraction.  I believe that what lies deep in our hearts as what we want is the highest and best for us.  I also believe that we can each have limiting beliefs- those missing connections in our brains – that prevent us from becoming all that we dream of being.

I also believe we are each responsible for our own lives…Life is not something that we can let happen to us.  We need to make it happen!  Do you believe that?

Look at the name of this blog…

Make It Happen Not Let It Happen

By using the Law of Attraction, and by acknowledging that my life conduct is my responsibility, I have found a fantastic solution….

I have found a guy – a multimillionaire himself – who is a world-renowned hypnotist and $25,000-an-hour private session brain re-programmer – who has a course where he will reprogram my brain- and yours- to the brain of a millionaire.

Six easy steps that fit easily into your regular day.

I think this is worth a look.  I recommend you check this out.  

If you’re like me, you won’t let ANYTHING – even your own brain synapses – stand in the way of your success, then get the the low-down on how to have the brain of a millionaire here today.

Oh yes- I almost forgot!  I have a free eBook for you too.  Grab it by going through this link and click to get your ebook on Designing Your Life.  You’ll learn about principles of life design that have been researched and tested for over 50 years in major universities.  Not only can you develop the brain connectivity for the brain of a millionaire but you can proactively design and implement the life you’re dreaming of.  Get these tools working in your life today!

Do You Know How To Get a Facebook Targeted Audience

Getting short on Facebook friends?
Do you have an online business and need to get more targeted friends that are actually interested in what you do?


How To Get a Facebook Yep…been there too.

And you may wonder how to get a Facebook targeted audience – where is it hiding?

Sometimes I feel like I am back in my MLM days, where I already made my list of friends and family, and now have no more to add and I wonder “how am I going to find people interested in my niche?”.

How am I going to boost my Facebook presence and use it as my Social Media tool?

How does one increase his Facebook friends base, and not just add anyone just like that?!

Well after working and playing around with my Facebook account, being thrown in FB Jail and scratching my head about “what have I done wrong”, I have found a trick or two (actually more) that can be of help to any aspiring Facebook Socialpreneur.

So without further ado here is my “how to get a Facebook targeted audience”

Daily Activities How To Get a Facebook

So yes, in order to get a better Facebook presence, as with any Social Media, you need to be active.
What is active?
Well, you need to post, comment and like – simple as that!

How often? at least once a day, but 3 times is a good average.
Remember, when you share something you like it is considered a post too – so here is some post saving time for you!

Niching Out

When you want to get noticed by people who are either active in your niche or interested in your niche, then going to a page that is run by an “influencer” in your niche and commenting on his/her posts will greatly benefit you too.

Do that!
How many? at least 3!
How often? once a day is good, but you can once every other day too.

Targeting Your Audience

There are about 1.45 Billion people on Facebook DAILY!! Do you think you might find 20 that would be interested in your niche – each day?????

Mmmm….yes, I thought so, OF COURSE! Duh!!

So how do you find these 20 “nichers”?

“Well elementary my dear Watson”,  (I love that sentence don’t you?) …you go look for groups that are related to your niche and ask to join them.
Please – do look at how many members there are in them before you “join” as a group with 9 people won’t get you there – right?
Join up to 20 groups per day – NO MORE!

Then, once approved, go and request friendships with their members – 20 per day – NO MORE!

Why am I emphasizing 20 per day?? Cause any more than that and you will go to Facebook Jail!

Now the length of time you will “serve” will depend if you are a first offender or a repeat offender.
Be careful though, repeat offenders can find themselves thrown into “solitary” which will mean to open a new Facebook account – as yours won’t be accessible any longer – ouch!

Workaholic? Or Workafrolic?


workaholic or workafrolic

So are you a workaholic?

Or is it just that you love your work so much you are a “Workafrolic?”

Isn’t that  a great word?  I mean how many of us truly want to frolic at work? And doesn’t that make you want to grin? I mean frolic??

I was listening to a TEd talk where the presenter was discussing just this difference. And I know that I struggle with this daily. Am I really pushing myself way tooo hard. Or am I just loving what I am doing, or both?

And so here is what I started seeing and thinking about. Ready?

Workaholic, The definition is a person who compulsively works hard and long hours. I mean really long hours 12-15 hours per day, 5-7 days per week. That is loads of working, yes?

Hmm, does that sound familiar?
And I think there is an added component to this. Not only is this complusively driven but many times it might be absent of any joy. So that makes it driving hard and workling long hours. Does not make for a happy person no?
And for those of us who grew up in the days before technology took over, we can remember fathers that worked non stop. Possibly only visible at times during the weekend. For many men it was society’s way of definiing their own worth. And of course then an even stronger push at what is a work ethic.
workaholic or workafrolic
So if men defined themselves by their work, then it would make sense long hours away from the family added stress to the family. But also allowed the man to not have to deal with family issues because he was doing his job of being the provider. Well that came with a box didn’t it?
But in reality how many men were truly happy with their work? And did they want to be defined that way?
So now enter this age of technology..and we hear the word passion. What is your passion?
And if we are doing work that is full of passion, good passion, not stress passion, that leads us to Workafrolic.


  1. If you are a workaholic, there is no mechanism to stop you from overworking
  2. If you are a workaholic, you are finding yourself to be not as healthy recently
  3. If you are a workaholic, you are not sleeping well
  4. If you are not feeling fulfilled by what you are doing but keep doing it anyway
  5. You will start to develop stress dis-eases, like heart problems and high blood pressure. 
  6. You no longer have a social life
  7. All you know is the office. 
  8. You are probably not eating or drinking well. 

workaholic or workafrolic


Has someone said this to you recently? Are you aware of it?

The word in Japanese is “karoshi” Want to know the translation of that definition? Death by overwork.
Now can you see the epitat on your tombstone? Yeah she died of karoshi. Hmmm.
What does that say about the legacy you are leaving? Is that really how  we want to be seen? And then the bigger question. Is that truy how we want to see ourselves? Where is the heart in overworking?

Are you ready to take a leap into fun and loving your life? Thinking about wanting to do work online? Then please do join me.

Workafrolic Benefits

So let’s look at this. What truly is the difference between workaholic and workafrolic? 

Workafrolic, means that while indeed you are working long hours, you are not in that stress mode. Instead we are loving our work and just getting totally lost in it just for the joy of it all.

And the thing is, when in the workafrolic mode, we are being fed. There are incredible benefits to this mode.

  1. We are more joyful
  2. we are happy to be at work
  3. office politics are not our thing
  4. we feel fulfilled by doing this work
  5. we feel that we are serving others in a way
  6. we are getting a great sense of accomplishment

So that means if we are in workafrolic mode, we are not pushing ourselves into dis-ease. But rather a joyful place.

But here is the rub, Please tell me what you think.

Both still work long hours, yes?

But does it feel like we are working per se, if we are truly loving what we do? So that means we no longer feel, arggh, I have to go to work.

And that changes our outlook, our health and our joy levels.

So what do you think? Do you fit either of these categories?


For me to be fully transparent. Here is where I am … I know that I have been totally kaoroshi at times. And also at times. completely and riduculously joy about my work. So do we vascilate between the two also?

I know as one having my own online businesss, I just adore my life. I cannot wait to get up and get close to my “puter. And because of the joy I feel I totally forget that I have been sitting communing with my machine for the last 6 hours. Now what do we call that???

Well here is my solution.

Compromise. Oh yeah, that word again. I need to compromise not doing long days, with loads of breaks in between and connecting with friends. That keeps me out of the dangerous workaholic space, yes?

What do you do to insure you are not workaholic but rather workafrolic?

I really want to hear, because I am having a dilemma knowing the difference at times. Because I am so in love at this moment. It is heady loving our work and our potential .

Ok. in honoring myself, I am not getting off this screen. And you take a break too…ok?

Oh and just in case you need some working suggestions, here are a few.

Workafrolics do this:

1 Frequent breaks every 45 minutes to an hour

2. Contact a friend during the work schedule.

3. Use a work schedule with a timer. And don’t ignore the timer!

4. Go for a walk at least 2x per day

5. Love your work and love your body, be aware of legs falling asleep and eyes not staying open!

6 Eat scheduled meals

7. Workafrolics have other hobbies. Not just work 


Make sense? Yeah.. Will we do it? I hope so. After all we can form the workaholics joy club.. anyone in?

In peace and gratitude,

Let Me Share An Easy Way to Optimize My Blog

An Easy Way to Optimize My Blog

We know that the key to making money online is to attract traffic…that’s a given.  One important way to gain traffic is to be found in the search engines, isn’t it?  And that takes optimization…I want to talk today about an easy way to optimize my blog.

It’s just one tool, I agree with you…there are others, like using social media effectively, that can drive traffic both with direct linking in, and with improved SEO.

There’s using backlinks…less a factor than it used to be, but not dead.  They work for SEO, true, but more so for building your brand and your authority…perhaps even attracting guest bloggers and cross-linking with sites that have good SEO.

There are paid ads of a thousand kinds.

Ebooks on Amazon, articles in ezines, marketing newer affiliate product releases… I’m sure you can add a ton more to this list!

In fact, will you?  Perhaps you’ll mention one that will make a huge difference for someone.  (I think we all know the internet is almost infinite in its possibilities, there is no scarcity, so helping one another only helps and doesn’t harm our businesses…it’s not like giving away your best recipe to the restaurant across the street!)

There are so many ways to work on traffic that the number of courses you can find to teach you the BIG SECRET abound, do they not?  I have a bunch of them!  I work on all these traffic-generation methods!  I am serious about building traffic to my site, and having a successful internet business, so I have a lot of traffic-generation prongs out there.  (Not too many to maintain, but more than one, certainly!)

I agree with you…SEO is just one of the tools.  Ah, but it is still a tool for traffic generation.

What if I can point you in the direction I’ve been using, of an easy way to optimize my blog?  Would you find that valuable?

OK, I’m going to let you in on my’s Squirrly.

I really can’t imagine where the developers got a name like Squirrly…It’s definitely not a program that messes around, or is indecisive, or uncertain like being squirrely…all I can tell you, that the name of my secret.

Squirrly is a plug-in that you can get 100% for free…yes, there are paid options.  But free is good to start with.

Here’s what you get:

  • you can work on one wordpress site
  • you can do 3 keyword searches a month
  • you can optimize 5 blog posts a month

Not bad for trying it out…if you’re like me, you may not be happy to stick with the free version…I had to upgrade.

  • I have more than one blog.
  • I want to search for more than 3 longtail keywords a month.
  • I optimize more than 5 posts a month…

It’s up to you, what you need.  At least try the free version to optimize your most important posts!

How do you decide which are the most important?

Well, a post that is central to what your blog is about is important.

So is one that is already getting some traffic.

More important, one that is making you some money, OR that you are planning will do that for you.

It’s a good thing to have some of your posts be ones you are going to really work on for reasons like these.  These are going to be your money posts.  You will want to do everything possible to promote them.  Lots of links (internal and backlinks).  Really effective keyword use.  Lots of updates to keep them fresh before the search engines.  Lots of posts about them on social media…a board dedicated to each of them on pinterest.

I suggest you add Squirrly to that repertoire of making those key posts as effective as possible.  Makes sense, doesn’t it?  You can do it for free!

Kinda newer and not as well known

You’ve probably heard of Yoast…it’s been around a few years longer than Squirrly.  Lots of bloggers have Yoast, and it works well.

The developers at Squirrly knew that, so they made Squirrly so that it works well side-by-side with Yoast.  It offers, even in its free version, features you don’t get even in premium versions of Yoast, they say.

I don’t have a direct experience of that, because I have premium Squirrly and free Yoast.  I can attest that it works with my version of Yoast.

So, Squirrly is newer.  It’s been around since 2012, and gets new upgrades every year so far, beginning with the free version.

easy-peasy plugin to optimize my blogWhy I say it’s an easy way to optimize my blog

It’s the way Squirrly works that makes it so easy to use.

First you find a long-tail keyword.  I sometimes work with Jaaxy at Wealthy Affiliate to help if I’m having a problem coming up with one with the right numbers to get ranked.  Jaaxy helps with offering options I might not think of…also, if you have the free Squirrly version, you’ll want to use Jaaxy for about 90% of your keyword search, so you don’t run out of your 3 freebies with Squirrly.

Then do your final search with Squirrly, that other 10% – or just type in the keyword you’ve picked with Jaaxy and start to optimize.

If you’re writing your post, Squirrly will turn green as you optimize segment by segment of it.  When you put your keyword in the title, for instance, you’ll get a greenlight…But it all you have in the title is the keyword, then Squirrly will withhold that greenlight until you add some more words to make your title reader-friendly.

That continues throughout your post…step by step.  It’s so easy to use to optimize that you just go ahead and type and naturally add in what you need to, in order to get your green lights.

For instance, as I write this post, I have all green lights, except two…I haven’t yet added any images, with my keywords in the alt text.  Once I do that, I’ll be optimized 100%…Easy-peasy!

I guess I need to ask…did you find this by searching online for an easy way to optimize your blog?  Or do you come to this site regularly to see what’s new that’s been posted, and landed here?  Do you subscribe to notices for new postings on WAGo-Getters?  Or did you see a notice I put on social media or on Wealthy Affiliate that aroused your curiosity and brought you here?

Something brought you here…it is least likely that you found it by looking in the search engines, but it could happen.  I now have it 100% optimized so my chances are good that I could be found that way…of course, my keyword here has quite a bit of competition, I know.  (I made the choice to write it anyway, because the subject was just too good not to pass on.)  I’m just glad you did get here, and I sure hope you’ll get Squirrly for yourself!
