    #69 - Selling on Zazzle with Caroline Jones

    If you’re looking to build a small side income and would love to sell physical products without any upfront investment todays episode is for you!

    The lovely Caroline Jones of Playful Pixel Designs kindly jumped on an FB live with me to talk through how she set up her Zazzle business.

    Zazzle is a print on demand site meaning you create your designs and images, upload to various ‘blank’ products on the site and just like that the products are branded with your design!

    Products like cards, buttons, bags, shoes, mugs, face masks, aprons, you name it, they have it!

    Listen in as we talk about;


    Setting up a totally free account! You don’t pay a penny until you start selling.
    The types of products available and how to get started even if you’re not a designer
    Setting up collections and following the trends to encourage sales
    How you make money from the platform
    The pros and cons of print on demand and Zazzle in particular

    You have to love a business model you can start with literally no upfront costs whatsoever!

    Give it a try! I’m certainly going to. :)

    #68 - Build a Book to Build a Business with Sandra Spence

    #68 - Build a Book to Build a Business with Sandra Spence

    Wouldn’t it be awesome if there was a way to create almost instant authority & credibility to our brand. A way to help us stand out from the crowd, get noticed and create opportunities we might not otherwise have!

    Well, I’m happy to say there is. It involves a little up front work but according to todays guest it doesn’t have to be hard, it doesn’t have to take longer than a few days and once it’s live & published you can use it as your business card and extended marketing tool!

    Sandra Spence and her business partner Sigrid de Kaste wrote the book ‘Build a Book to Build a Business’ to teach business owners how to create instant authority by publishing a book that showcases you as the expert in your niche.

    #67 - Locked Down in Cambodia with the Roaming Rebels

    #67 - Locked Down in Cambodia with the Roaming Rebels

    Cambodia is one of my favorite places in the world.

    I was especially excited therefore to interview the awesome Roaming Rebels who at the time of interview were locked down in Cambodia due to the Covid 19 outbreak!

    Barbara & Louis (aka Roaming Rebels) decided to pack up their lives in South Africa, reinvent themselves at age 50 and go traveling around the world on motorbikes!

    Louis is the motorbike guy, for Barbara its been a new and interesting experience!

    Along the way they’ve built a fabulously engaging Instagram account with almost 6000 followers already (they only set out last October) and hundreds of comments per post and do weekly travel videos on their YouTube channel.

    I managed to catch up with them in the hotel they were staying in and find out;


    What they were doing pre travel
    What inspired them to make such a huge life change
    How they found themselves re-grouting an entire swimming pool while locked down
    How they’ve managed to create such an engaging Instagram following
    What equipment they use to video their adventures
    Where to next!
    And loads more

    An upbeat, inspiring, engaging interview with a beautiful couple living the dream!

    #65 - How to Start & Grow a 7 Figure Amazon Business

    #65 - How to Start & Grow a 7 Figure Amazon Business

    In 2015 my husband & I started selling on Amazon. Within 12 months we'd grossed 1.2 million dollars with one product! It blew our minds.

    We continued to grow our business over the following years topping $3 million (per year) with net profits in the region of 15 - 18%, until we sold it in early 2020.

    That little business set us up for a good many years and taught me, in particular, the power of a loyal audience and a strong trusted brand (i.e, Amazon)

    When we started in 2015, we invited members of my community to watch over our shoulders as we built the business. Two such members were Dan Worthington and his Mum Sue, who after 3 years growing their Amazon brand started traveling the world full time in 2018. You can find Dan and track his adventures @wanderingworthy on Instagram.

    In Feb this year, they came out to Phuket, Thailand for my wedding, and as Covid struck decided to stay here for a while. In today's podcast episode Dan & I got together in the garden of a villa they were renting here to go through the process of starting and growing a successful brand on Amazon.

    Please excuse the Cicadas in the background - Tropical Life! :)

    I have added this podcast to my step by step mammoth Amazon guide on my blog which you can read and follow along here - https://yourlifestylebusiness.com/amazon-fba/

    I hope it helps!
