How high of a priority is time freedom in your life?
In part 2 of the 4-part series, Outsourcing from the Inside Out, we're continuing on from leaving the meal planning to the kids, and tackling meal prep and clean-up.
Around here we keep it simple
No matter how much work you do, every week your family still wants to eat ... every single week ... figure out what to feed them, get the groceries, unload and put away the groceries, make the meals, clean up after the meals, listen to ... "Can I have something else?" "I don't like this" "Do I have to eat it?"
I don't know about you but week in and week out - this whole process started taking its toll on me. But moms are problem solvers and so I took matters into my own hands and developed a meal planning system to attack this weekly adventure in our home. What I created achieved all this:
Delegate the Planning
One thing I've definitely learned by running my own business is...
The first in our Easy As PB&J series focused on helping you create ideas about what kind of a digital product you could create based on your life experience, skills, knowledge, talents, passions, or even hobbies.
In this video, you'll see the different ideas we had for an amazing woman who has twenty years of experience as a stay at home wife and mom and was curious about what she could make.
Please use this mind map to see the different ideas we had and the notes of additional information we included.
If you have ideas you'd like to add for this mom, please add them below. And if you'd like to see us feature you and your experience on a future episode please click here to access the free interactive experience that we...
In this step-by-step video, I'll show you how easy it is to add Facebook comments into your blog posts on New Kajabi.
If you prefer to learn and see the roadmap of how to do this, you are more than welcome to visit this mind map where I lay out all the steps you'll see in this video.
Please let us know how you liked this video and if there's anything else you'd like to learn.
Short answer. Yes.
But you need objective reasons so you can reach your own conclusion and make the best decision for you and your family.
If I had to guess - you're researching New Kajabi because you've decided that you want to run a portion or all of your business online. Very smart decision indeed! As part of a billion dollar industry, no matter what your current industry is, you're making a smart choice to investigate having part or all of your income-generating aspects of life online.
I made a workbook that you can use and easily record your answers as you do your research. The workbook can be saved to your computer, downloaded, and printed - have fun! It's also embedded at the bottom of this page.
Here's the link to a FAQ sheet about New Kajabi that also includes links to my own personal worksheets that I use when researching and comparing different purchases.
Nicholette, one of my favorite business buddies sat down with me to chat about all things legal and Canva related. I'll let her take it from here.
Nicholette: There are two types of Canva people (okay maybe more, but stay with me here), the one is nervous about breaking the law when they use Canva and the other doesn't even know that there are legal consequences to think about.
Which one are you?
I was both. I went from not even thinking it's a thing to being uber paranoid. I don't want either one for you.
As my friend Tamsen Horton likes to remind me "every business decision, has a legal impact".
I've been keeping a list of all your legal questions (keep em coming babe) and I asked Tamsen to set the record straight on staying legal with Canva without letting it keep you stuck and not taking action on sharing about your business, using visuals.
Questions like ...
"Put your shoes on."
"Please eat breakfast."
"No, I don't know where your shoes are."
I don't know about you but our mornings used to be ripe with these and probably a hundred others. Kip is going back to school in a few weeks, and I wanted to keep up the fun, relaxed, and enjoyable mornings that we've had going for the past few months. I didn't want to turn into nagging mommy, stressed-out mommy, or "hurry up!!!" mommy.
Enter my new morning miracle worker ... the hourglass timer.
I've been trying to figure out how to help Kip (5 years old) the concept of time but using the timer on his iPad was not working as he'd end up mesmerized by that intoxicating screen and still not get done what he needed to do.
I hopped over to my good friend, Mr. Amazon, and found these great hourglass timers. I quickly ordered three of them: hour, 3o minutes, and 5 minutes. My requirements were: not breakable. The 5-minute timer arrived with a cracked shell but the box looked like it'd been run...
Can I play music while live streaming?
No. If you play music without the proper legal permissions you are committing copyright infringement.
But everyone else is doing it.
Yes, they are. And they are also breaking the law.
But I'm not making any money.
I know. But making money is not a requirement for copyright infringement to apply. Simply using content that is not yours (and that falls within the protections of the copyright laws) is all that it takes to commit copyright infringement.
But it's in the public domain.
Nope, it's probably not. There is very little copyrighted material actually within the public domain. And more than likely...
I had the sheer joy and pleasure to sit down and gab with Jonathan all about copyright laws and how they impact our world as creators. Thankfully my good friend Bonnie L. Frank joined in and helped us get all the amazing questions answered! This is a longer blab ... so when you have an hour and want to invest in your knowledge about such an important subject to your business - this is a great way to spend that time!
Jonathan is the real deal and I encourage you to connect with the great community he's building over at Blabnation.
Dave and I got together and took specific questions from his creative community regarding copyrighting creative work and broke it down step-by-step. Click here to listen to the podcast....
Go from feeling like you're 10 steps behind at the end of every day to feeling like you have all the time in the world to finish what needs to be done and with time left over ...
