Don’t have the time to read all the marketing news, blog posts, announcements, and other content related to SEO/social media/online marketing published each week?
I’ve got you covered.
I sift through trillions (well, hundreds) of online publications to stay on top of marketing news that might affect your online business.
Let’s start with the news from Traffic Generation Café.
Your online business is a bridge from your life as you have it to your life as you see it.
In your new life, you might have the time and the money to do EXACTLY what you want when you want it.
You’ll no longer have to read the menu in a restaurant from right to left.
You’ll no longer have to check the price tag before deciding if you have enough room on your credit card to buy something.
Your assets will finally grow beyond pizza coupons.
But that will be then.
For now, you are overwhelmed, underpaid, and just don’t get why your busy-ness in your business hasn’t gotten you any closer to the life you wish you had.
12 Weeks to Getting Unstuck with Confidence and Grace [webinar replay]
As you can see from the post above, I’ve recently gone through a ‘I can’t believe I am not making as much money as I should with Traffic Generation Café’ phase.
I felt like all the blogging stars were aligned just right for me to be more successful financially, yet I was treading water.
Working hard, yet getting nowhere.
I felt stuck.
Then I talked to my friend Danny Iny of Firepolemarketing.com and he knew exactly what I needed to do: he introduced me to Laura Leigh Clarke.
30 minutes on the phone with her and I truly couldn’t believe my ears: she knew exactly what I was going through, but even more so, she knew what I needed to do to get UnStuck.
I’ve been following Laura’s plan since then and, believe you me, this was some of the most practical hands-on training I’ve seen in a while.
As you might already know, Laura did a webinar for Traffic Generation Café readers 12 Weeks to Getting Unstuck (And Jump Starting Your Revenue) with Confidence and Grace.
I loved it.
Those who attended it loved it.
If you missed, but want to learn how to make more money with your business doing what you love, you have less than 2 days to watch the replay.
Don’t kick yourself in the rear later – don’t miss it again:
