It’s only day 3 and I’ve already fallen behind!

Well, here it is, only the 3rd day of the Thirty Day Challenge and I’ve already fallen behind. I’m still on Day 2. 😦

Although I’ve had a little trouble with downloading the videos for Day 2, the real reason I’m behind is because of this.

As soon as I get through Day 2, I’ll post my thoughts and then move on to Day 3. Hopefully, I can get through both of those plus Day 4 on Monday.

I had a moment yesterday to download the Market Samurai tool and it looks awesome and I did watch the Intro video but that’s it. How are you doing so far? I’ve heard on the forums that MS rocks! Can’t wait to dig in.

Hope you enjoyed your weekend as much as I did. Check out that link for details. 😉

Weight Loss & Marketing

Do weight loss and marketing have anything in common?


How is that?

Well, they both require commitment, they both require a system that must be followed and they both take time. This year, my plan is to go full tilt on both.

But it’s not all about weight loss, really. It’s more about a lifestyle change – exercise, healthy eating, mental clarity – they all play a part. So, to document what I’m doing for health, I’ve created a new blog called The Weight Loss Papers. You’ll find it at And I’ll continue to track my marketing progress here at internet marketing & more.

I’ve just secured an internship to learn more about internet marketing. I’ll be able to implement what I’m learning there into my own businesses. It’s not a paid internship but I think it’s going to work out well nonetheless, especially as things really get cooking with my own business efforts.

This year in addition to marketing, I’m focusing on my writing business. I’m just now beginning a new marketing campaign that promises some good results. My mentor is sure I can make upwards of $10k per month very soon. And I’m so excited about that!

Newbie Blogging Moron . . .

I’m evaluating a multi-media course on blogging from the folks at Simpleology. For a while, they’re letting you snag it for free if you post about it on your blog.

It covers:

  • The best blogging techniques.
  • How to get traffic to your blog.
  • How to turn your blog into money.

I’ll let you know what I think once I’ve had a chance to check it out. Meanwhile, go grab yours while it’s still free.

DealDotCom & Twitter


I just signed up for this. Thought it was pretty interesting. I found it at – Entrepreneurs Journey – originally which is a blog I just began following.

And speaking of following – I’m sorry I’ve been rather quiet twitter lately. Just had so much going on, I keep forgetting to update and post stuff. I’m now following some additional cool folks like Guy Kawasaki, Robert Scoble, Seth Godin and Marlan Sanders to name a few. I thought it was pretty cool that within 5 minutes of adding Scoble, he added me! (Thanks, Robert!) I appreciate that. I think I’m now following everyone who’s following me as well.

Feel free to add me if you’d like. There’s a post here somewhere with all my “social” accounts but here they are again:


Oh! I know what else I wanted to write about today. This coming Saturday, the 15th, Dr. Mani is doing his annual Heart Kids Blogathon and I’m going to participate for a 4-hour chunk of time if I can. Not sure what time yet, but probably later in the evening unless my husband takes the kids to the park or something.

I think that’s it for now. I’ll let you know a little more about Dr. Mani’s project tomorrow.

Sleep well! I’ve been up since 5:30 when my 3 year old decided it was time to get up. UGH! I’m *not* a good morning person. 😦 So, I’m off to bed here shortly.
