Required Disclaimer:  There is absolutely no guarantee of income or success implied. There is no such thing as “overnight riches,” nor is this a “get-rich” scheme. This takes hard work and persistent action.  I’ve spent eight years learning how to create a product, and create a subscriber list to recommend other people’s products to result in a total of 6 figures of income. Everyone’s experience is different and is based on your own personal skill level and work ethic.   I am simply sharing what has worked for me personally, after many years of studying and actually doing the work.  It is the best “job” I’ve ever had since it allows me the freedom to work from my laptop.  Teaching these skills and creating my own products and promoting other people’s products/services through emailing my subscribers to suggest these programs, pays my bills and I love it.  If you would like to watch a “case study” of what I do daily to create income from online products, I cordially invite you to follow along!

How To Make Printables As Your Side Hustle Even When You Draw Stick Figures When Asked!

Before I begin on how to make printables your side hustle, I need you to understand something about me. Way back when I was in Kindergarten and was asked to draw a “Mom” figure, it probably looked something like this:


Fast forward to today, if you asked me to draw a “Mom” and a “Dad” Figure it would look…well..exactly the same! Ha! I kid you not. What is my point? You don’t have to have ANY graphic design skills, with or without the computer to make your own printables as your side hustle. I am living proof of that. What if you could make a “side hustle” online that could potentially pay your electric bill, or your water bill, or your car payment each month? Just by sending out an email to my subscriber list recommending this “side hustle” I made a quick $424.74 today (yay!) to pay our electric bill and taxes too.

W+printablesince when I saw this opportunity, I knew this was something that I could do and recommend to others with a whole heart.

And that is how POPULAR this method is for creating income online.

Here’s the video I made late the other night in my PJs, since I wanted to preview this to the amazing people on my list, and I knew it was something I would recommend to my own sister, Tammy.

There’s a lot online that you can’t recommend, or people just can’t duplicate. This one is super easy, once you learn how to do a few graphics inside of

What I love about Canva, let me count the ways:

  1. It’s free. Do I need to say more?
  2. It comes with tutorials if you get stuck, plus if you go to Youtube and search “How Do I ______ in Canva?
  3. It is easy to use for someone as Non-Techie as me.
  4. It makes you look GLAM, even if you’re graphic skills are NOT.
  5. It lets you create Youtube thumbnails, Instagram posts, Pinterest Posts, and Facebook Posts in the right dimensions. Plus, if you need to resize something, go to and use the RESIZE feature.  You can resize almost anything with that free software as well. What a deal! Free is always a good deal =).

You can see how here…

Here’s an example on Rowan Trend’s Etsy Shop (be sure to check out her Etsy shop here.)


Ike is doing this here.

So, if your heart (and mind) are even slightly interested, go for it.  Why not start creating printables aroudn Holiday-themed parties?

Too fun!

Now, having been through both the front-end product and the 52 downloads (which is the upsell to this),  I can confidently say that if you watch all of the videos 1-4 and look at Ike’s examples on his Etsy store, and many MORE in Etsy and Pinterest, you will have all you need with free tools.  Now, you can even make a free website with and go to Paypal and create a button to sell it, then put your image and link to your free blog, and they can buy your printable from there. Or, you can create a quick Etsy shop and upload your first listing for only $.20! I did that today with one of the printables in the upsell.

Next, remember if you get stuck go to Youtube and type in your question and there is more than likely MANY videos to watch to help you.

Now, if you working way too hard every day…this could be a viable way to make additional income, and if you dig in and find sub-niches (and you can just by searching in Pinterest and Etsy), you will never run out of ideas!!!

Here’s some tips:

#1  Don’t compare your images with those who are more “artsy” than you.  Ike’s are not perfect, and he is selling these almost every day (and he’s a male, and it is mostly females buying them), so DON’T let your brain talk you out of this.

#2  After you make your first sale, make some similar printables.

#3  Celebrate every success you make, such as Wow, Today I made my first EVER printable. Today, I uploaded it to Etsy.

#4  Did you know that it is only costs about 20 cents to publish your item on Etsy? I know because I did it today. Yes, they take a fee out, but remember, you also don’t have to worry about creating your own website or store. And do you know what else I LOVE about Etsy? They are a search engine and a remarkable marketing engine.  After your listing gets up in their first few pages, and people look at your listings, they will begin to send emails to people who LIKED your printables (even if they don’t buy them).  Plus, they have a FAVORITE button that tells Etsy they loved it.  They also provide a list at the bottom (this is similar to what Amazon does), of things a person viewed the last time they visited, and your shop might be there.

#4 Plus, when anything related to your printables comes up in Google and they click to Etsy, you have yet ANOTHER opportunity to sell to them. 

#5  Remember, give yourself a break!  All of this takes a bit of time.

Time to learn Canva (free)

Time to set up a free blog or

Time to set up a shop/listing on Etsy

Time to set up your “pins” on Pinterest

Anyway, don’t overthink it, learn how to make printables as your side hustle, get your printables in front of BUYERS on these two sites – Pinterest and Etsy!!! That is one of the secrets…getting your things to buy in front of BUYERS.

Note:  (I wrote this in response to a subscriber’s email.  By doggy, Ailsa, I think I just wrote my next blog post and email since I need to share this with others and I have YOU to thank for that!!)

You Had Me At Hello! Sorry, it’s been a while, is anyone there?

You had me at Hello!

{Disclosure: This post may contain affiliate links. I may receive commissions for purchases made through links in this post.}

Well..hello, I confess.

It’s been a while since I BLOGGED!  Please don’t judge me.  I’ve been busy.  Really busy.

BIG SIGH…she says.

BUT, I was on a Live Webinar last night and was reminded (oh me, oh my!) that I should have started blogging like Yesterday, or before yesterday.

But today (actually, tonight) is all I have. Live in the present, you know.  Stop kicking ourselves around for yesterday.  I woke up thinking this morning that I can’t do one IOTA (southern for “small) thing about yesterday.  Nada. None of it. Nothing.

So, I might as well gulp and accept responsibility for all the mistakes I did make (some from omission, some from commission and if you were raised Baptist in the deep South like I was you’ll get THAT)…if not it means what it says pretty much.

And I love my blog…or I’m beginning to. It’s not as “prettied-up” as I would like, but graphic design has NEVER been my strong suit, so I rely on good ‘ol Canva.

Canva is a FREE editing and photo site that is my new BFF. If you haven’t yet heard about it…GIRL!  Run, don’t walk and if you’re like me and your idea of art created is stick figures, you’ll be TOTALLY relieved to find out that most people will NEVER find out (shhhhh I won’t tell!) =).

Now, on to the good stuff.  The internet marketing goodies that make us glad we found blogging, Pinterest and the world of ANYTHING is possible!  What am I referring to, oh not so clearly?  Affiliate Marketing Gold and Niches that bring in riches.

I digress.  So…last night sitting on my sofa propped up with a comfy pillow and bright orange University of Tennessee throw blanket, I found myself with my earphones watching a live webinar.  Sitting nearby was my husband working on HIS laptop (we’re a matched pair from heaven and Eharmony!), while the latest TV make-over show drones on…but no one is really listening.

And my ears suddenly perk up!  200K in a year…whaaaaatttt?  Yep! You can read Suzi’s story here.   It is amazing. She is amazing. Her husband is amazing. Her siblings are amazing entrepreneurs. Her father is amazing. He was on the call cheering her on.  It is one AMAZING webinar! Ha!  When it ended I was so inspired by what she shared, that it came pouring out during my Facebook live video today.

You can watch that here if you like, and I would SO SO love it, if you would LIKE my Facebook Fanpage to give me some more FB love. xoxo

So, without further adieu, if you care ANYTHING about blogging, or your future, go to this page (my shameless affiliate link) and at least fill out your email at the bottom of her page to get on her newsletter.  It will be well worth the effort.

[clickToTweet tweet=”Plus, if you plan to blog, you’ll need a plan (that was corny), but true. ” quote=”Plus, if you plan to blog, you’ll need a plan (that was corny), but true. “]


And I awoke this morning to my husband kissing me goodbye REALLY early (5 AM), so I lay awake to the sound of the rushing

traffic outside and then the LONG and very LOUD horn of a passing train at an intersection.

That HORN….it reminded me as I heard the rushing of car train after car train that life is passing by…and if you don’t GET

on board, it will leave without you.  And it won’t be anyone’s fault except our own.  Dreams sometimes die inside of those

who wished them.  Let the opposite be true of YOU and me.  Let’s rebirth our dreams and tack on some more besides.

Isn’t it time you DREAMED big?

Okay, I get it, you logged into your affiliate dashboards this morning and you saw a big fat goose egg – Total Sales $0.

But!  Let me challenge you. Where did you last see your affiliate sales spike?

What did you do to get that affiliate sale?

Don’t start over.


Do more of the same.

And if you want to blog, start here with Suzi’s course.  You’ll love it.  She’s the real deal.

And so my friend are YOU.  You are a unique blend of all you have experienced to the moment in time.

Make it count.

Detailed Case Study: How I’ve Made 6 Figures As An Affiliate & A Seller of Information Products







And as a Vendor selling my own information products on WarriorPlus:

And also selling on the platform called JVZoo:

Today (5/16/2014) so far (and it’s early in the day) Affiliate Sales

And for my own Products on JVZoo – this is gross income as 50% was paid out to Affiliate Partners: So Net Approx. $34,000

Plus, I have brought in income on other Affiliate platforms as well, plus as a Coach/Consultant as well, so this does not represent all of my online income, but is a peek inside to see what is possible when you teach, coach, and promote other people’s products online.

Much of my affiliate income comes from emailing my subscriber list which has fluctuated over the years but hovers around 10K – 12K.

Plus, all of this was done (with a grateful heart to God) through being stressed out of mind as a Single Mom with 2 teenagers when I first began back in 2011, and struggling to build a future online where I could be there for my children, and now my grandchildren.

So, I told myself to jump in with both feet and even though I’ve strayed from time to time with shiny object syndrome, I have always kept building my email list, and email promos as an affiliate as the main core of my business.

If I had to tell you where to begin online,  it would be to build your email list.

Then, you can either promote other people’s products, or begin to build your own as soon as you see success. Now, your brain will try to talk you out of that, but you have to realize that as soon as you have made $1 dollar – $100 online, you are way ahead of a great percentage of folks who have never done that.  You would be surprised that most people that begin online marketing quit within their first year, because they are not sure how to proceed, or don’t see success quickly enough.

You must invest yourself in your business online, and I’ve personally spent thousands of dollars (sometimes on just one weekend) to get to where I had a good idea of how all of what you see online fits together like a huge puzzle.

How do you get started promoting other people’s products?

You build an email list of people who trust your recommendations because over time and emailing, you build a relationship with them.  Some of them even become friends when you see them often on your webinars.

Online, you can only go so far with being anonymous behind your keyboard.

Human beings crave interaction, it is the way we are wired.

So, hiding behind your computer can only work to take you to one level, but to take it to the next level, you have to “speak” in pictures of yourself or real live videos that go out to Youtube, Facebook or Pinterest.

At the very least, again, you must show people who you are with photographs of yourself for people to “connect” with you.

Video is the best medium because people connect with your face and/or your voice.

Even doing a podcast or a recording of your screen with your voice only works as long as you have a picture of yourself on your Youtube channel or your Facebook page you are broadcasting from, or your Podcast.

We are social beings, so we have to “connect” with the person we are listening to as an expert to believe them, what they say, and what they recommend as action steps to get you where you are going.

I began on Youtube.  I didn’t show my face at first, because I was shy and not confident. But over time, I began to get out of my comfort zone and joined with another entrepreneur to interview people about their products they were launching.

This helped build my buyer’s list.

The other thing that built my buyer’s list of subscribers was reviewing peostple’s products on Youtube.  Again, you can do this with or without showing your face on camera by using free screenshare software like or or Jing. All are excellent and again, FREE, which is nice starting out when you are on a limited budget.

So…you build your email list.  You take one piece of content, whether it is your blog post like this one, or a video and then you distribute it across many channels across that internet.

For example, one live Facebook video from  your Fanpage or personal profile can be downloaded and uploaded to Youtube, and then shared on Blogger, Pinterest, etc.



How To Build A List of Subscribers? How To Take One Video and Turn It Into A Steady Stream of Subscribers?

If you wish you knew hot to take on video and turn it into a steady stream of subscribers, then

you’re going to love this!

In this video, I talk about how to begin to create income online even if you’re as clueless as I was

when I first began online. Learning how to build a list of subscribers who know you, like you

and trust you was my ticket to a full-time income


I think back to ten years ago and I didn’t even know how to send a single email.

I was in a bad marriage, life was very difficult, and I wanted to be able work from

my laptop wherever God lead me wherever I wound up after my divorce.

My dreams DID come true. I’m happily remarried, and my grown children are doing well.

Watch the video and you’ll find out which Social Media platform I chose and why.

If you need just one way to get started? Use Youtube, Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram (pick ONE!)

Then, use a page like the one you see here and START building a subscriber list, like NOW.

I use this service and it is like an all-in-one tool that I LOVE!





Remember, if you learn how to build a list of subscribers, you will have an asset for life!
