Police - Seal - Sandy Eyeball - Free Goodies 👮🦭👁️🎁

I had ALLLLLL day to prepare my promo email for Lizzy’s Christmas Party and then I got a call to help a seal pup (that’s a link to a post from my local police Facebook page because they found him, and helped me). And somewhere during the capturing, weighing, and caging process I managed to get sand in my eye, and now it feels like the inside of my eyelid is made from tinsel. So I can’t pull myself together enough to write much about how brilliant the Christmas Party is. But really, I don’t...

🛋️ Brain Brakes nearly made me say 'no' to this opportunity 🧠🛥️🦭🧗

This is an email about two opportunities, how my brain likes to immediately say ‘no’ to the unknown, how I get over that, and how you can make more money (because I think there’s a whole lot of people looking at your sales page, being held back by the same Brain Brakes that stop me saying ‘yes’ to things). Last weekend I was invited on a 2-hour boat trip to see our local seal colony. 4 years ago I was invited to abseil down the Orbit in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Both experiences...

🛋️ Kitty cat alarm clock shock 😼🐈‍⬛⏰😬🛋️

I had a brutal start to the day Reader 6 am Poppy cat started scratching the bottom of the bed. Usually, if I ignore her for long enough she’ll give up, jump up for a quick stroke, and settle back to sleep. Not today. Today I felt her slide her little paw up under the duvet cover, and before I had time to react she sunk a claw into the softest part of the bottom of my foot. There’s no doubt her Wake The Human technique was effective. She got what she wanted (an early breakfast). But it came...

🛋️ Buyer, Seller, Awe-struck Bystander - I’ve got all your Black Friday angles covered

Ever get so absorbed by the thing you’re doing that it grows way beyond what you’d originally intended Reader? Yesterday, I accidentally created a course that covers Black Friday from every angle (buying, selling, admiring as a bystander). At 9 a.m., in a blissfully quiet house, devoid of The Sons and The Husband I started drafting an email about Black Friday. Then after about an hour of collecting notes on everything I wanted to include it looked like it would be a blog post, then four blog...
