    Welcome to Episode 65 of Praestabilis: Excellence in Marketing



    In episode 65 the question is…  What skills do I need to become a successful entrepreneur?” I’ve been online since 2006 and during that time I’ve determined that some skills are necessary, and others can be outsourced.

    The four things I do almost every day include:



    * Writing – email messages, blog posts, books, social media updates, and more.

    * Creating – products, courses, short reports, marketing campaigns, and more.

    * Marketing – this is the basis for all sales, so I think of it as the most important skill for your business. Learn to love marketing, and your income will skyrocket!

    * Mentoring/Learning – I’ve always considered myself to be a mentor and never related to coaching. The word mentor means teacher and this describes my approach to mentoring online. Also, I spend time learning what I need to as a part of my business. The idea here is to outsource what you can to others, and not spend precious time with learning everything in that area.



    There are also skills like technology, clerical tasks, information product creation, and teaching that you must decide how to approach to achieve your goals, online or offline. I will also add the softer skills here, such as consistency, perseverance, focus, and maintaining a positive attitude.

    What’s working for you right now? What do you wish to change? Create and live your true, authentic self with everything you say and do. You are worth it!

    Check out my most recent articles and essays at Monday Morning Mellow.

    Reinventing myself is a concept and process I know something about. Most recently, I have reinvented myself through intermittent fasting. I’m even writing a book on this topic and the working title is The Pursuit of Healthy-ness: How I Reinvented Myself with Intermittent Fasting. This book is scheduled for release during the fall of 2021.

    By my willingness to reinvent myself I’ve been able to change my life significantly through the decades. I’ve written a post about this called Reinventing Myself… Version 5. We’re always moving forward when we surrender and reinvent.

    What are you doing right now in your life and your business that is working? Where do you need to make some changes? How may I best serve you as you surrender to doing what it takes? As humans, we are capable of reinventing ourselves as we change and grow.

    I began back in 2006 with affiliate marketing. I did not have a list, and used my blog and my articles to get my name and message out to the world. I still earn an excellent income with affiliate marketing and it accounts for just over 40% of my income. You may become my affiliate at Affiliate Links and Tools.

    Soon, I added local business marketing to what I had to offer. Initially, I was helping a family member who’d started a new business. After my results improved and I was able to help make his office phone ring, I began offering marketing help for small, local businesses in my community.

    Other business models to consider are digital information products, coaching and consulting, niche sites and authorship. I would encourage you to pursue your interests and ...

    Welcome to Episode 64 of Praestabilis: Excellence in Marketing



    In episode 64 the question is…  Should I start a podcast?” I’ve been podcasting for over a decade. This most recent podcast, Praestabilis: Excellence in Marketing launched in January of 2019 and I will continue to share my thoughts and ideas on marketing until I feel this podcast is complete.

    What about you? Are you thinking about starting your first podcast? A client recently asked me about doing this with her friend and I decided to answer her questions on my own podcast.

    Ask yourself “Why am I starting a podcast? What message do I wish to share with the world, or at least with people in my target audience? Make a list of the pros and cons, remaining as objective as possible. This is not a decision you want to make quickly, without first weighing your options and then taking action.

    First, how will you record? I use a teleseminar service I’ve been with since they started the company in 2007. It’s called Instant Teleseminar and yes, I’m an affiliate for them. It’s a simple process for me to call in to my line on my iPhone or land line, start recording, and then publish the mp3 to this site, where my podcast lives on the internet.

    What will your format be for your podcast? I’ve done it all ways, including doing a weekly interview series for just over two years. For this podcast, I talk for about twenty minutes, twice a month, on topics around excellence in marketing. You may also wish to consider being a guest on other people’s podcasts before starting your own. I’ve been a podcast guest many times and recommend you consider this to get started. Kathleen Gage helps people with this, and you may download her podcast checklist here.

    Think about the audience you wish to reach, and use keywords in your podcast title and domain name. The word “praestabilis” translates from Latin to mean extraordinary, outstanding, or excellent. I can guarantee no one in the world in searching for this word, but they are searching for “excellence in marketing” and variations of that phrase.

    iTunes ended a couple of years ago and morphed into Apple Podcasts. Search for my name – Connie Ragen Green – there and see what comes up. For my podcasts to be listed there, my podcast “feed” must talk to Apple Podcasts. If you want to keep the technology to a minimum, check out a site called Anchor.fm for more simplicity.

    How long will you talk each time? The average commute time in North America is 22 minutes, so I’ve used that as a guideline for my own recordings and show.

    I also have a site called Podcast Show Notes where people may find my current and previous podcasts.

    The final question to ask yourself is “How will I monetize my podcast?” Subscription fees are not common, and my goal is to send people only to my main websites, blogs, and evergreen resources.

    Keep podcasting once you begin, or you will become a statistic and experience something called “pod fade.”

    What’s working for you right now? What do you wish to change? Create and live your true, authentic self with everything you say and do. You are worth it!

    Welcome to Episode 63 of Praestabilis: Excellence in Marketing



    In episode 63 I address the idea of getting to know yourself as a way to achieve the great success you want and deserve. We have both an inner and outer self, and we must answer the question “Who am I?” in order to better serve those who come to us for help and support. This applies to both your personal life and business.

    Who are you right now? What type of life do you wish to live each day? Think about lifestyle design and what this means to you. We can have any life we want, so why not make each moment a joyous one? Online entrepreneurship and authorship are areas you may already be pursuing. Live mindfully, think creatively, and reach your full potential! Don’t be a stranger to your own body and mind: Find out who you are and what you want.

    What’s working for you right now? What do you wish to change? Create and live your true, authentic self with everything you say and do. You are worth it!

    Welcome to Episode 62 of Praestabilis: Excellence in Marketing



    In episode 62 I discuss the concepts of surrendering and being willing to do what it takes to achieve great success. I believe that we must humble ourselves in order to fully reach our potential and lead lives of meaning and service.

    I was reading about gymnast Simone Biles and her decision to walk away from the Tokyo Olympics this week. She did what was best for her, first, and then what was best for the team. Simone was willing to surrender to her fears in order to begin the healing process and reinvent herself.

    Reinventing myself is a concept and process I know something about. Most recently, I have reinvented myself through intermittent fasting. I’m even writing a book on this topic and the working title is The Pursuit of Healthy-ness: How I Reinvented Myself with Intermittent Fasting.

    Praestabilis: Excelllence in Marketing

    Welcome to Episode 61 of Praestabilis: Excellence in Marketing



    In episode 61 the topic is creating an online empire by writing and publishing a series of eBooks on your niche topic. You’ll be able to position yourself as an expert and help others to achieve their goals in the process.

    I first learned about eBooks – electronic books – from Joe Vitale. He was teaching a course on this when I got started with my online business in 2006. I learned so much from Joe during this time and began writing my own eBooks on topics I was familiar with, like real estate, homeschooling, and starting an online business after age 50.

    Keep in mind that this was years before Amazon jumped into the world of publishing with Kindle, Create Space (now a part of KDP – Kindle Direct Publishing) and traditional publishing was the norm for most authors. Instead, we self-published our eBooks and sold them on our own website(s) to people who wanted to learn more about our topic.

    Keyword research is crucial to your success with this business model. Start out with Google and use their free Google Suggest feature. When you uncover as many keywords and keyword phrases as possible for your niche topic, people searching for what you have written about will more easily find you.

    Jim Edwards has what I consider to be the best training on how to write eBooks, hands down. You’ll be amazed at how inexpensive this training is, and how much information is included.

    Welcome to Episode 60 of Praestabilis: Excellence in Marketing



    In episode 60 the topic is one that everyone must give some thought to when they first come online. Yes, it’s choosing a business model that will work for you, the lifestyle you wish to create, and the niche and target audience you are serving.

    I began back in 2006 with affiliate marketing. I did not have a list, and used my blog and my articles to get my name and message out to the world.

    * Reading books not having to do with my business. Right now I’m reading the revised and updated version of The China Study: The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted and the Startling Implications for Diet, Weight Loss, and Long-Term Health by T. Colin Campbell and Thomas M. Campbell II, as well as Malcolm Gladwell’s latest, The Bomber Mafia: A Dream, a Temptation, and the Longest Night of the Second World War. Reading in this way allows me to expand my mind and thinking so that I can see beyond the confines of marketing and other topics I know very well.

    * Creative writing. I think of this as writing for pleasure. My writing practice has expanded significantly over the years, and in July of 2019 I started a third blog called Monday Morning Mellow in order to have a home on the internet in which to share these stories.

    * Getting away from familiar surroundings. I began this early on in my entrepreneurial journey by going to a hotel located about an hour from my home for an overnight stay. This hotel was at the beach in Ventura, California and gave me a new perspective on my life and my business that became priceless to me over time.

    * Unplugging completely. This was a tough one for me to embrace, but once I did I was able to see dramatic results in my outlook on life, level of creativity, and how I was able to navigate the waters of life and business. I highly recommend you do this for 24 hours each week for best results.

    * Talking to people from other walks of life. I talk to strangers and t...
