Hope you've made some headway with your holiday shopping. Thank goodness for online shopping and free shipping -- I'm finished! Hiding the goodies from the girls is getting harder and harder though:)
As the year winds down, I am doing a lot of planning for the new year. Content and continued learning I have planned for myself and of course all of the great information and content I want to share with you. Part of that was creating aneditorial calendar for myself and for seven of you. Congratulations to those of you who took decisive action and booked your spot! You're going to love what I create for you. You're finally going to know what to talk about All The Time to your community. Yippee!!!
Would You Consider Yourself Someone Who Is Afraid Of Change?
I ask that this week because I've been working with a few clients who
have invested money and time with me to mentor them around getting more clients and attaining higher visibility, BUT are afraid to take many of the actions that I am recommending. Why? Because it's uncomfortable. That's what I'm talking about in today's feature content rich article. Check it out below.
What Are Your Intentions For The Week?
This week I am doing further work on the revamped Articology program and more edits on my website. Afterwards, I'm going to take the rest of the month off for some much needed rest and relaxation. Don't forget to stop by Facebook and let me know what you're intentions are for the week so I can cheer you on!
Enjoy this week -- and enjoy the holidays!
Week's Content Marketing Assignment:
Making Room In Your Business For Change
PS: A big "rich" WELCOME
to all of you new
readers who joined our tribe of entrepreneurs
week. You're going to love the simple strategies & tools you
find here to help you create & leverage marketable content for your business -
I am really looking to get known more next year. I write on my blog, I submit articles to directories, and I have a teleseminar every month or so. What else do you recommend?
I talk a lot about how to take major steps in boosting your visibility to attract more clients in my soon to be published Content Rich Marketing System(TM), but one tip I can give you right now is to consider what you do best in your marketing and take it one step further.
If you are a great writer, consider doing some guest blogging in 2012. If you are a great speaker, consider getting yourself booked for more speaking engagements in your local area or as a guest speaker for teleseminars in related niches. It's all about recognizing your unique ability and running with it! Much success to you:)
This week I'd like to give you a marketing mindset tip on change...
Are You Afraid Of Making A Change?
Are You Willing To Make Changes In Your Business To Reach Six Figures?
In 2003, Bobby and Renatta worked with me in my psychotherapy practice
for over 16 months to try and save their relationship. They both wanted
to get married, but Renatta wouldn't say yes until Bobby secured stable
employment. Bobby had a dream of being an actor and wanted to continue
to pursue it until he got work or until he accepted that it wasn't in
the cards for him.
They were miserable, and they were both getting on
each others nerves, but no one wanted to make a move towards change.
They were afraid to do something, because they didn't want to lose each
other and they also didn't want to lose themselves. So they stayed right
where they were for the entire 16 months and are probably in that same
space today. It was awful. It was unfulfilling -- but it was all they knew and it was safe.
I saw this type of couple over and over in my work as a
psychotherapist. I worked with many couples who sought advice for
marital problems but were unwilling or unable to do what was required to
make progress -- and that was to make some sort of a change.
If you think about it, it seems to make perfect sense. If you've
doing something for a year, for 5 years, for 10 and your situation isn't
improving -- then what you're doing isn't working. You've got to do something else. That same principle holds true for anything in life -- including your business.
If you have been trying to attract new clients and make more money
over the last 6 months, a year, 2 years or more and you haven't filled
your practice yet then it's obviously time to try something else. So why
do so many entrepreneurs have trouble with this-with change?

Images Make Your Content Pop!
Making your content visually appealing is crucial these days. You want your work to look polished and engaging and photos, illustrations, and clipart can do this for you. The key is that you don't want to swipe anything off of Google images because you could be breaking copyright laws, so the safest and best route to cost effective artwork for your articles, ebooks, reports and more is to find images at places like iStockphoto. There are other choices out there, but not at their prices.
Article marketing entrepreneurs are constantly sending me knew software to try and new submission programs to join in hopes for a "good review" on my site. As you know I rarely give 'em, because most of them produce less than desirable results. But this is the ONLY article submission service that I RAVE about consistently. The reason why is that their pool of sites that they publish too are high quality and the cost is affordable for the new article marketer.
