It’s cold and grey here again today… they said January was going to feel more like October this week, but I’m just not feeling it myself. It took a nap under a warm blanket and a huge mug of lemon ginger tea to warm me up this afternoon after I had to go outside and do an errand.
So, you might be wonder what the heck Bogey School is, especially if you’re new here! It’s no secret that I love playing golf, and the highlight of my summers is a 6-week group coaching thing called Bogey School. It’s a fun time and is pretty much for people who love the game and just want “to be less bad at golf.”
I love it because it gets me out meeting people and doing something on Sunday afternoons in the summer when Shaun’s not home. And last night I got an email from them saying they’re taking over one of the indoor golf places on Saturdays starting later this month and running an indoor Bogey School through the winter! Yes please, where do I sign up?
It’s a great marketing thing for the guy who runs it too… He’s found a way to give his summer customers what they want in the middle of winter and it was a good reminder for me too, to always have the customers needs in mind. Yes, it’s good to do what makes your heart happy, but doing what makes your heart AND your customers happy is even better.
Unlike the guy at the cell phone store this morning, who absolutely wouldn’t listen to what I needed from him to become a new customer there. He was determined to sell me a plan I did not want, and so I ended up leaving and calling Shaun to sort it out at a different shop on his way home tonight.
Here’s what I have for you today…

One of my favourite products of 2022 was Amy Harrop’s Positivity Printables training. If you’re not sure what these are they are products like gratitude journals, affirmations coloring pages, habit trackers, vision boards, etc. Anything really that helps people be more positive and improve their lives. This is my all-time favourite content to create and I’ve spent years making planners and journals to serve the personal development niche.
Amy has updated this training to include a 30 Steps to Printable Success guide, and a set of Affirmation Card templates in both Canva and PPT formats.
Here’s what the main guide covers:
- What positivity printables are and why there is such a big market for them.
- The benefits of positivity products according to science.
