Do you make really great coffee, solopreneur? mmmmmm. Neither do I. But that wouldn’t stop me from creating a really great coffee blog. And what fun! Here’s some of the posts I could create: How to brew a great cup of coffee for a solo; How to brew a great cup of coffee for dozens of guests; Where coffee comes from; Features on the greatest coffee houses in every city in the world (Your visitors can help you with these!); The difference between Kenya coffee and Brazilian coffee; How to create a “Good Morning” swirl, like the picture; What...Read More

Yes, creating a presence on Etsy is a good starting point for many creative businesses. And if all you really want is a basic outlet for your artistic works, you can stop there. Etsy provides valuable services for creative people. For example, Etsy’s platform is relatively easy to use. Etsy sets up the “Buy” process, so all your customers have to do is click a button. Etsy handles all the money transactions, a real hassle for many creative people, especially those who ship internationally. And Etsy can provide limited promotion. That’s no small matter. Or if you chance to...Read More
When I first saw coloring books appear, I thought it was cute, a passing fad. But it is not a passing fad any more. In fact, coloring books is a great business for solopreneurs. Thousands of people of all ages, with all kinds of interests, snatch up these gems. Even I, a book worm to the end, have now twice presented programs for women using coloring books as our focused activity. They were great for establishing an aura of meditation, and opened up unexpected communications on why someone chose a particular image, or why one person used pastels and...Read More

Isn’t that a beautiful ornament? Soloprenuers are the perfect vehicle for promoting something this exquisite. That is a Swarovski crystal snowflake ornament. Swarovski creates a new one each year, and they are VERY collectible. This particular one is from 2015. And these snowflakes are not cheap. This one costs about $95. For one ornament, that’s a lot. But that is exactly the kind of sale you need to make online if you hope to be successful. Let Target and Amazon go cheap — that is their specialty. You can never compete with them — it is a losing proposition....Read More
And, YES! you should earn bundles of money. You know your stuff. You’ve been around a while. Being a professional online mentor is a natural for you. How much can you earn? Well, one woman I know charges $30,000 per year per client. For that fee they get prompt personal access to her advice every single day of the year. If that sounds annoying to you, just image how much money she is making with only ten clients, and this woman is not the most expensive mentor in the market. And that, too, is the biggest drawback, i.e., the...Read More
An online fund raising pro is the one who knows the intricacies of those incredible online fund raising services. These services would have you believe that everyone who posts on their site ends up raising lots of money. That is so Not True. The truth is that a tiny fraction of those who post actually raise funding, and very few raise as much as they originally intended. The truth is that there are a whole lot of scammers who know this. These scammers try every way imaginable to separate the money from the entrepreneur, with promises and schemes that...Read More
Whether I use the term “bookkeepers” or “accountants”, this applies equally to each kind of small business service provider. And that’s the first lesson: most people don’t know the difference between a bookkeeper and an accountant. That is the very first thing that you will have to teach them. And the very first thing that I will tell you is: Shout out your strength. Put it up there in the header of your website or blog. Don’t make people search for what you do, or read through your whole bio to identify your credentials. Know what it is that...Read More
What do you do with a great piece of art, a book cover or a logo? Well, don’t let it get away. TURN IT INTO A REAL BOOK, hardcover or soft or Kindle Once in a while, you’ve just got the cover before the book. Hey, it happens. Take the cover for LET’S TANGO. I have actually used it twice. I love the tango image, and I love the message, i.e., Let’s work together to make something spectacular. This particular book is not for sale; it is part of the From Passion to Prosperity Master Class. However, if you...Read More
The hardest part about selling online, especially for creative people, is simple: It is that dastardly word . (It feels like a sobering Halloween squeal should come in here. Creative people are good people. I like creative people. I also know a lot of them don’t do a terrific job of SE**ING. (Yeah, it is a dirty word in many ports.) If you think SE**ING is tough, you NEED to be online. It is a whole new world of sales online. Selling online is a whole lot different than selling at an art show. At an art show, you...Read More
