It’s my FREE 1-Hour Blogging Bootcamp


This webinar delves into what I call “inspirational blogging.” What do I mean by an “inspirational” blog? Why would you want to write one? Here’s a hint: it’s as simple as sharing your true self on the page, and being willing to connect to your reader in a genuine way. When you learn to harness the power of personal story, your blog will inspire, and it doesn’t matter what you’re writing about.

Want to blog about business? Healthcare? Real Estate? Entertainment? Parenting? No problem!

I’ll explain how you can learn how to find your message and deliver it by using the 5-Step Blog Blueprint I use as a Huffington Post blogger.

This is a fast-paced presentation of specific tips to take the doubt and guesswork out of your writing.

A friend told me that one of our neighbors was going to ask me to carpool with her and I didn’t want to. I was worried about being steam-rolled into an arrangement that, in my gut, I knew would include a lot of drama. But what would I say? What reason could I give?
