I’m hoping that if all goes well this morning, by the time you read this I will be sound asleep again. I woke up at about 3 a.m. this morning and could not fall back asleep, so decided to stay up and do today’s blog post and the newsletter so that after my 8 a.m. doctor’s appointment (who knew doctors even did appointments that early) that I can come home and get a couple more hours of sleep.
It’s flippin’ cold here again this morning too. I’m sitting here with a big cup of coffee, and my blanket sweater and I’m still feeling cold. Shaun finally decided he was cold too this morning, and took the air conditioner hose out of the window and shut it for the winter.
But that’s enough whining from me this morning.
Here’s what I have for you in today’s roundup…
New Coloring Patterns Are Available Now
The October patterns for Coloring Patterns Monthly are now in members accounts on the CURRENT MONTH page. And the replay from October’s live call is also on that page, as well as on the September 2022 page with last month’s patterns.

Cindy’s Deal of the Day
Today is Day 9 of Cindy’s Business Builder Specials and today’s deal is on the The Six-Figure List-Building System. Save 50% with code OCTOBER22 for today only!
Your email list is the absolute most important part of your business, and I can say that easily and emphatically because at least 75% of my income can be attributed directly to my lists (and yes, I do have more than one). I’ve been building email lists since 1997, but I never really had a system for it until I found Cindy’s training.
Here’s what she’s sharing with you in The Six-Figure List-Building System…
- Create an enticing opt-in offer your readers won’t be able to resist (including how to do it without writing a word)
- Craft captivating copy that compels your visitors to click the subscribe button (with examples and fill-in-the-blank templates you can steal)
- Optimize your website for conversions by taking advantage of every opportunity (without looking spammy or desperate)
- Build your list on autopilot with one simple tool and some strategic link placement (because list-building doesn’t have to feel like work)
- Two strategies for massive list growth that won’t cost you a dime
- How to leverage relationships and “borrow” other people’s traffic to grow your list (complete with outreach templates to make it easy)

Today’s Read: 8 Ideas to Jumpstart Your Creativity
As a creative soulpreneurs, your creativity is a necessary part of your business. And while it’s great to be creative for a living, sometimes you’re just not feeling it (at least if you’re anything like me) and it’s hard to be creative on command.
Creative energy is really just like any other type of energy… it ebbs and flows and needs recharging. And just like your car battery, if it’s not firing up for you, it just might need a bit of a jumpstart.
Fortunately, there are ways to give your creativity a boost when you need it.
And that’s it for me this morning. I’m going to try and get some sleep and then tackle a few projects this afternoon and evening.
Have an amazing day/evening! Create what makes your heart happy!
