    Welcome to Episode 97 of Praestabilis: Excellence in Marketing



    Welcome Aboard for Episode 97 of the podcast! This is the first podcast episode for 2023 and I’m sharing “how to create passive income streams.”

    Passive income has been referred to as the “8th wonder of the world” and for good reason; having the ability to create something once and then be paid regularly for many years to come is a wonderful experience and lifestyle.

    The true name for what I’m describing here is “residual income” because you must take action first in order to set up the passive income stream. When someone is in a television show or films a commercial, they are paid first for the work they do, and then on an ongoing basis every time the show or the commercial airs again.

    For online entrepreneurs, we can create passive income streams over and over again in a variety of ways…



    * Create your own course or product that can be sold as a stand alone item, meaning that you will not be required to do any additional work.

    * Recommend someone else’s product or course or service through your affiliate link. I do this regularly when I tell others about AWeber, the autoresponder service I’ve been using for over a decade.

    * Publish a book – I now have over twenty-five books to my name, and each of these brings me passive income for years. Every month I receive a direct deposit into my bank account for the book royalties I have earned. The more books you write and publish, the more you are likely to increase your passive income exponentially.



    Take a look at what type of passive or residual income you already have coming in, perhaps from real estate or stock investments. Then, decide how you will add to that with your online business, in a way that allows you to work once and then be paid regularly in an ongoing manner.

    I’ve been a part of a formal goal setting and achieving program since 2005. I know that I would not have had the courage and the mentoring to leave  my teaching job and real estate a year later if it hadn’t been for this program. During this episode I share a little of what I do regularly to make sure I’m on track with my mindset and my goals.

    One thing I began doing just recently as a new marketing strategy is to record myself reading through my always too long email messages, and then providing a link to the most recent recording at the top of the email. This allows me to connect more deeply with my audience and to expound upon what I have written, interjecting more details when necessary and appropriate.

    I’ve begun writing for television and film this year. When I begin a new writing project, whether it’s for a television pilot, a screenplay for film, or even one of my non-fiction books, I begin with a series of steps that allow me to outline my idea in great detail before I start the writing process. These steps include:



    * The BIG IDEA:  What’s the story about? In this case, my big idea in 2005 was to resign my classroom teaching position, give away my best real estate clients, and to come online.

    * The THEME was that I wanted out of the work force and to work for myself from home.

    * The SETUP was to examine closely the life I had created for myself to date, and to take full responsibility for everything I had created over time.

    * The CATALYST was a series of events, actions, and conversations over a period of about three years that led me to the conclusion that I had to change my life in a major way.

    * The DEBATE was around how I would do this. I had no desire to once again return to school to learn new skills or to begin a new career. Instead,

    Welcome to Episode 96 of Praestabilis: Excellence in Marketing



    Welcome Aboard for Episode 96 of the podcast! This is my final podcast episode for 2022 and I’m sharing “how to achieve your goals in 2023 and beyond.”

    Everything old is new again, and you must choose wisely in order to build a business and lifestyle that suits your goals and intentions.

    As we near the end of 2022, it’s a time for planning and reflection. What worked during this year, a tumultuous one after coming out of the pandemic and entering a new phase of our global life experience, may not work well as we go forward.

    What did you start or take on during 2022? What did you let go of this year? Remaining focused and action-oriented will always be important to success in both a personal and professional way.

    When you’re in a job, there is built-in structure and focus. You must be able to stay on task and keep your priorities straight if you are to achieve your dreams and goals in a timely manner.

    I’ve been a part of a formal goal setting and achieving program since 2005. I know that I would not have had the courage and the mentoring to leave  my teaching job and real estate a year later if it hadn’t been for this program. During this episode I share a little of what I do regularly to make sure I’m on track with my mindset and my goals.

    * The CATALYST was a series of events, actions, and conversations over a period of about three years that led me to the conclusion that I had to change my life in a major way.

    * The DEBATE was around how I would do this. I had no desire to once again return to school to learn new skills or to begin a new career. Instead, I wanted to start my own business that I could run from home, or from wherever in the world I happened to be, with only a laptop computer and an internet connection.

    * The “B” Story brought a mentor into the picture. While this person did not work out for me, he led me directly to the people who would become my friends, colleagues, and mentors going forward.

    * The FUN and GAMES began when I actually started my business and learned what I needed to do each day in order to earn income and keep my business on track to grow and expand over time.

    * The BAD GUYS CLOSE IN occurred when I realized I was not earning enough money to cover my expenses, and that my savings and other assets would not last more than one year.

    * The ALL is LOST feeling was that I had to quickly decide what I needed to change immediately in order to achieve the success I wanted as an online entrepreneur.



    This is the point where many people give up.

    Welcome to Episode 95 of Praestabilis: Excellence in Marketing



    Welcome Aboard for Episode 95 of the podcast! Today I’m sharing my thoughts and strategies around focus, as well as your “to-do” lists and schedules.”

    As we near the end of 2022, it’s a time for planning and reflection. What worked during this year, a tumultuous one after coming out of the pandemic and entering a new phase of our global life experience, may not work well as we go forward.

    This is the point where many people give up. They are overwhelmed and beat themselves up over their current predicament.

    Welcome to Episode 94 of Praestabilis: Excellence in Marketing



    Welcome Aboard for Episode 94 of the podcast! This time I’m sharing a concept I call “Deconstructing Entrepreneurship Using a Show Business Writing Example!”

    After a lengthy discussion with one of my mentors, she suggested that I share my thoughts and ideas around starting a business online and becoming successful. I’m doing that is this episode with the intention of helping you decide what you can do to be more successful in your own business.

    I’ve begun writing for television and film this year. When I begin a new writing project, whether it’s for a television pilot, a screenplay for film, or even one of my non-fiction books, I begin with a series of steps that allow me to outline my idea in great detail before I start the writing process.

    * The DEBATE was around how I would do this. I had no desire to once again return to school to learn new skills or to begin a new career.

    My latest book is “Essays at the Intersection of Hope and Synchronicity” and it’s available in paperback and also on Kindle.

    My online business is based upon the premise that being in service to others is the most important part of entrepreneurship.

    You may notice that I offer many items that are completely free of charge. Yes, I’m sharing them through my affiliate link so you’ll be cookied in through me for future purchases and sales, but there’s more to it than that. I want you to opt in and download some valuable items from some people I know well, respect, and continue to learn from.

    Start by asking yourself some questions:

    * Am I already familiar with this person or brand?

    * What is it exactly that they are giving to me for free?

    * After I opt in for the free item(s), what’s their upsell?

    Welcome to Episode 93 of Praestabilis: Excellence in Marketing



    Welcome Aboard for Episode 93 of the podcast! This time I’m sharing my thoughts on “Being in Service to Others, Moving the Free Line, and Sharing Resources with Your Prospects, Customers, and Clients!”

    My online business is based upon the premise that being in service to others is the most important part of entrepreneurship.

    You may notice that I offer many items that are completely free of charge. Yes, I’m sharing them through my affiliate link so you’ll be cookied in through me for future purchases and sales, but there’s more to it than that. I want you to opt in and download some valuable items from some people I know well, respect, and continue to learn from.

    Start by asking yourself some questions:

    * Am I already familiar with this person or brand?

    * What is it exactly that they are giving to me for free?

    * After I opt in for the free item(s), what’s their upsell?

    * Once I check/confirm my email address, what’s next?

    * [Most Important] Is what they are sharing with me AFTER I request the free item in alignment with what I originally requested?

    We all know so much on a variety of topics and this is based, in part, on the fact that before we started our business we already had experience and knowledge and an interest in many things, most of which was unrelated but relevant to the business we started and are in the process of building right now. This is true whether you are college age or older. Wherever you are in your journey, you’ve dealt with people and situations that will make a difference for you, now and going forward.

    I began my life as an entrepreneur by going to Rotary, primarily as a way to meet people in the new city where I had moved after resigning from my classroom teaching job and giving away my real estate clients.

    My opportunity to speak as a result of visiting a Rotary Club close to where I had been living previously to coming online. Although I wasn’t prepared and not scheduled to speak that day, I stepped up to the challenge and spoke about something I knew – the current real estate market as we were inching closer to an economic downturn and recession.

    Soon, I realized that speaking, writing, and being active in the community would help me to grow my business, as well as change my mindset and open my mind to the world of small business and entrepreneurship.

    When I began marketing for small businesses, I encouraged the owners to become an expert by first speaking about and then writing about what they knew about their specific industry. Then, I helped them to connect with people who would benefit from learning from them.

    Put in your ten thousand hours of practice and this will move you closer to expert status.

    I started my first blog for my new business in 2006. The name of it was Ebook Writing and Marketing Secrets, and within two years that blog became my primary site – where I continue to blog all these years later – at Connie Ragen Green.

    During the next several years, two mentors, Raymond Aaron and Alex Mandossian told me that I was the “huge profits with a tiny list” person and should blog about how I was becoming known for making excellent and ever increasing income with such a tiny number – relatively speaking – of people on my email list.

    I took their advice and soon after my “Huge Profits Tiny List” blog was created. Initially begun for the sole purpose of sharing my strategies on earning income with a small list, I continued to expand upon these principles and in July of 2010 my first book, a href="http://connieragengreenbooks.

    Welcome to Episode 92 of Praestabilis: Excellence in Marketing



    Welcome Aboard for Episode 92 of the podcast! This time the discussion is around the topic of “Becoming an Expert in an Area You Already Know Something About in the Next 90 Days!”

    We all know so much on a variety of topics and this is based, in part, on the fact that before we started our business we already had experience and knowledge and an interest in many things, most of which was unrelated but relevant to the business we started and are in the process of building right now.

    Instead of closing down this blog after the book was released, I decided to continue publishing posts there a few times each month, and continue to do this to this day.

    My writing has improved over the years, and I am now a bestselling Wall Street Journal and USA Today author. During the summer of 2019 I decided to start a third blog, as a way to write mostly fiction and begin my journey as a television and screenplay writer. You may see what I’m sharing on my Monday Morning Mellow blog where I publish… you guessed it! every single Monday.

    You must get back to basics if you are to succeed as an online entrepreneur. There are a few “musts” that include:
