It’s been a long time since I’ve written a blog post. It’s been a long time since I’ve really focused on my business and not just done what had to be done. I just lost my focus, my mojo. Whatever you want to call it, I lost it. But these last couple of months I’ve started feeling it again.  🙂  I’ve been taking stock of where I’m at with my business and where I want to be.

Where I’m Been

By God’s grace I have managed to keep a couple of clients through the last couple of years.  I’m so thankful for my monthly retainer clients who stick with me. They are the only reason I still have an online business.  So if any of you are reading this – THANK YOU!

A couple of years ago I sold Faithful Bloggers and let my other projects go as well.

Where I’m At

I’m slowly getting back into the grove.  Something I always struggled with in the past was balancing time with my kids and the time I worked.  This time around I’m planning all my business work around the kids.  So during the summer months I won’t be able to work as much as I want, but that’s a good thing.  It means I’m spending time making memories with my family.

Now when school starts back up, all bets are off!  All 4 of my kids will be in school next year!  It will be my first year not having a child at home with me everyday during the school year.  It’s going to be very weird and I know I’m going to miss my kids but I’m excited about the additional time I’ll get to dedicate to my business.

Business wise I’m focusing on FreshNets – my web development, support, and training site.  It’s my first love and I’m so excited to get back to it.

Of course I have a side project going as well.  Just for fun and to learn more I opened a Etsy shop, Faith Inspired Designs, selling faith inspired coloring pages and printables.  It’s one of those things I’ve always wanted to do but just never did.  I don’t want to have any regrets this time around so I went for it.  To help promote the faith inspired coloring pages I create a free site, Free Coloring Fun, to build a mailing list.  While it’s all setup, I’m still learning and tweaking.

Where I Want To Be

Long term I just want an online business I can be proud of and know that I’m providing a value to people without compromising my faith or morals.

Short term I have a new optin I need to complete for FreshNets and have a WordPress plugin I want to write and distribute.

So what have you been up to lately?

 

P.S.  I signed up for the free 30 Day List Building Challenge by Nathalie Lussier which started today.  I found out about this challenge from Cindy Bidar at Virtually Thriving . If your not following Cindy you should be – she gives great tips and valuable information to help your business.  Thanks Cindy!  I’m excited about the challenge and I think it’s just push I need right now.  If you decide to join, let me know, so I can cheer you on.

WP Weekly Tips – a new site to help you learn WordPress.  I know, I know, there are already hundreds of sites out there that teach WordPress.  This one is a little different though.  It’s not just a blog. In fact, you don’t even have to visit the site regularly to get the tips.  They are emailed to you directly each week!

I’m still working behind the scenes to get everything setup just right, but I will let you all know as soon as it’s ready!
