Friday’s Features

I'm going to try something different on Fridays for a while to see how readers enjoy it. I'm going to feature blogs, websites, videos, books and anything I enjoy and find value with in anticipation you will too. I may only feature one or I might have an entire list. Some of these people I will know and some I've never met. All of them will be interesting and they won't be boring. It should be fun and I'd like to get some feedback in the comments section after you get a chance to take a look at them. So, here we go.

First up is Etsy – Your Place to Buy & Sell All Things Handmade. Their "mission is to enable people to make a living making things, and to reconnect makers with buyers." Their "vision is to build a new economy and present a better choice by buying, selling and living handmade." I know a lot of people who love Etsy and they make a pretty good, part-time income selling. Check Etsy out. There is a video you might want to watch.

Out next visit is to Squidoo. Squidoo was founded by marketing legend and friend, Seth Godin. Seth describes Squidoo as a "publishing platform and community that makes it easy for you to create "lenses" online. Lenses are pages, kind of like flyers or signposts or overview articles, that gather everything you know about your topic of interest–and snap it all into focus."

It's a super simple, fun and powerful way to share your interests, build your online identity and credibility, and connect with new readers and friends. It's all free, and you can earn royalties for yourself or a charity you can pick. Here's a lens I built. I have a couple more too and plan on building a new one very soon on a new service I'm going to offer. Bottom line – it is fun, interesting and a way to make some money sitting at home in your PJ's or helping your favorite charity.

What is Woot? If you already know, bite your tongue for a minute and don't let the secret out. I want to tell everyone else. It is an online store that sells one item per day until it is sold out or until 11:59pm central
time when it is replaced with a new item.

That's the secret! They only sell one item a day! Today it is a battery powered lawn mower. Tomorrow – who knows? It's fun to check each day (it takes seconds) to see what's being offered. You have a chance to score a great deal.

My friend and designer, Paul Durban has quit his full-time day job and along with his wife Lauren, have launched their own business. Paul is a fantabulous designer and one of the best people you'd ever want to know. His new company is called Blazonfire. They do Information Product Design – things like EBooks, motion graphics, audio, video and more. Check out their samples page to get an idea of the level of their creativity.

Last in line today is one of my favorite people and friend, Megan Elizabeth Morris. Megan did the editing on my recent book while Paul did the design. Megan has also decided to launch a new business. (This is what happens when you read my book.)

It is called That Idea Blueprint Girl.

Megan does four things – Idea Generation, Idea Blueprinting, and Idea Consulting. She also does limited Idea Implementation, "usually by divine decree."

Let's say you have an idea for a new "thing" but you're stuck. Megan will not only get you unstuck but will give you a string of new ideas along with a transfer of her awesome exuberance and passion. You'll be off and running and wondering why you didn't call her weeks ago.

If you visit her you'll also find a bunch of free ideas just sitting there waiting for you to show up.

That's it for this Friday. Enjoy your weekend and see you soon!
