How to Create and Send an Email Broadcast in ConvertKit

I love ConvertKit for so many reasons but probably one of the biggest reasons is how easy it is to use!

I thought it would be helpful to walk through some of the common tasks ConvertKit users will be doing on a regular basis - essentially create a body of 'ConvertKit How-Tos’!

5 Ways My Business Has Changed Since Having a Baby

5 Ways My Business Has Changed Since Having a Baby

A few years ago, when my oldest was born I decided that I needed to figure out a way to both contribute to our family and be available for my kiddos, whenever they needed me.

When I first got the idea to start my virtual assistant business, I didn’t know for sure the best way to get started.

There were a few classes I could invest in to learn how to go about starting my business, but I wasn’t able to take the plunge. So I became good friends with Google and learned enough that I was able to get started and am still going strong 2.5 years later.

Hey Business Owners... Giving back is important, too!

Hey Business Owners... Giving back is important, too!

As business owners, we’re often thinking about the next thing we can do to get another client, sell more of our products, have a bigger reach, and ultimately make more money. And I’m sure a lot of us spend time thinking about our goals and accomplishments and also where we would like our businesses to take us.
