It's exciting when what you've put into action actually gets great results.  That's what +Don Purdum has been doing these past six weeks and is now doing some serious celebrating.

Want to see what all he's done in order to get the great results that he has?  Then check out this post and take notes.
Have you ever just taken time away from your business to do other things? Last week I did just that and it was a great time to pause, reflect and think forward. The last six weeks has been phenomenal

So how many people are still eager to learn how to make money online?  There is a ton of information out there of course but what works and what's junk?

My friend +Brent Jones put together a step-by-step blueprint of how he was able to start bringing in income and he's sharing it with everyone.  Isn't he generous?

If you're still wanting to know how this is done then I suggest you check out his post.  It's a good one.
A step-by-step blueprint to making money online no matter your experience level, niche, or chosen business model. It's a lot simpler than you probably think!

We all need time away to spend with family and/or friends.  To rejuvenate, come back refreshed and ready to dive back into work.

Some feel guilty though for taking time away.  I use to be one of those people up until a few years ago.  So if you're one of them then this post is exactly what you need.

Check out what +Donna Merrill had to share about her recent time away.

I saw this, read it and found it rather disturbing.  How can this even happen today!  My heart goes out to Cassandra and her family for what she was put through.

If I was given a choice I would never choose cemo. 
What would you do if your child was kidnapped and was forced to do chemo against her will and your wishes? This is an unbelievable sad, but true story.

Hey Mary (+Write Hacks), 

First let me say that I'm so happy to hear that you are a breast cancer survivor.  So if my Mom and my older cousin so I know what you ladies had to endure.  

One of my best friends husband had cancer but unfortunately he passed away a few years ago.  She spoke to his doctors about chemo and they shared a report with her from five different cancer doctors and they all said that if their lives depended on going through chemo they wouldn't do it.  My Dad lived with cancer for over 42 years and he refused the treatment too.  I believe it's our bodies and we have a right to say what we want done to it or not.  For this poor girl to not have that right!  This is America for goodness sakes.  What's wrong with this picture.

I'm glad it was your decision my dear friend but I hope this story brings light to the fact that some people are taking our rights away.

With SO many bloggers online today it's easy for our blogs to be overlooked.  It only takes a few seconds to impress a new visitor and that's not an easy thing to do.

+Kevin Duncan has given some great advice in this post on how to make yours unforgettable.

Enjoy!
You usually get one chance to make a good impression when someone visits your blog. Here's how to make it count.

I agree, if it converts then keep it.  If not then it has to go!  LOL!!!

People struggle through life, I think that's just part of our learning process.  Some struggle more than others though.  

How many actually make it through and see a significant change though?  +Sylviane Nuccio sure has and is sharing it with anyone who is eager to learn what she did and how she did it.

Check out her post, "How To Transform Your Life In 14 Days"

How's your email marketing going so far?  Are you eager to get them all signed up and then expect them to purchase from you?

If that's the case then you really need to read this post that +Jane Sheeba wrote because she's explaining to you what needs to happen first.
Unless you have a “relationship” with your subscribers, those email ids have no meaning - they are just entries in the database.

I love what +Katherine Kotaw shared in her recent post about storytelling.  We all know that it's what captures our attention and really does work.

It worked so well for one of her clients that it brought in $5 million in just 48 hours.  

Who says storytelling doesn't work for corporations?
There is no happily-ever-after in brand storytelling. Content marketing is a longterm investment and success depends on more than one happy ending.
