#IWSG Encouragement is Everything


It's Insecure Writer's Support Group Day! If you'd like to join us on the first Wednesday of every month, you can sign up HERE. 

As always, thanks to Alex Cavanaugh for hosting, as well as the awesome co-hosts this month, Joylene Nowell Butler, Jacqui Murray, Sandra Cox, and Lee Lowery!
 
This month's optional question: Is there someone who supported or influenced you that perhaps isn't around anymore? Anyone you miss?

Answer: All my supporters are present and accounted for! My mom, sister, daughter and husband are my biggest supporters. 

Even so, my husband is my biggest supporter! Because of his encouragement I went to school, earned my degree, and discovered my love of writing. 

My husband is also my biggest fan (other than that one fan who always checks in to see when my next book is coming out LOL). He is the first to read my books and stories and says he loves them even though I know my cutesy paranormal cozy mysteries are on the opposite spectrum of what he usually reads. 

Whatever I'm endeavoring to do, my hubs is always my biggest supporter and fan. 

I used to play women's soccer, and he came to every game to cheer me on, referring to himself as my "athletic supporter" 😆

Grateful doesn't begin to describe how much his encouragement means to me!

Who is/was your biggest supporter?

  1. That's great that your husband is your best supporter and fan and that he's still here to do it. My husband was my biggest supporter when he was alive, and I'm super grateful for him and our time together.

  6. Your husband sounds great! I have to say, I wish I had one of those. Mine isn't terrible, my family are not readers. Finding a beta reader is so hard for me. It's great you seem to have lots to chose from.

  7. That's so cool that your husband is your biggest supporter! My hubby is really great that way as well. And he's good at helping me with plot holes! Nice that you have so many supportive people around you.

  9. My husband is my biggest fan and supporter too, though he never gets to be my athletic supporter because I'm about as athletic as a sloth.

  10. Your eCommerce can be successful by not being duped by myths and by following the right steps to start an eCommerce business. Avoid the pitfalls listed above, take care of the small details, treat it like any other business, and you’ll give yourself a head start in achieving your entrepreneurial dreams. A lot of scammers will have you believe there’s nothing to starting an eCommerce business and instantly being successful. This is more of that “build it, they will come” mentality, which we’ve established is wrong.
    If I had my time over again, I would have potentially bypassed this model altogether and saved lots of money. Having said that, I felt drop shipping helped me serve a solid apprenticeship. If you sign up for the Pro package, you gain access to a number of extra features, including custom SSL, segmentation tools, and abandoned cart saver.
    Order products from the manufacture and have it sent straight to the fulfillment center. The business planning phase is also when you want to iron out details like your staff, product sourcing, logistics and marketing budget. Make sure you understand all the available financial resources available to you. Now is a good time to step back and put your business plan on paper and determine your startup budget, loan needs and monthly expenses. If you’re not familiar with this process, the Small Business Associationhas plenty of resources to help you get started, including a mentor-protege network and courses on small business basics.

    Like most things in life, extra effort and hard work to make your business special can be the difference between having a successful dropshipping business or a failed dropshipping business. People that can build trusted relationships with product distributors who will quickly and discretely dropship products on behalf of their partners are not easy to find. It is important to remember that with Affiliate Marketing, you don’t own the product or have any control over the product or service that you are promoting. I had an affiliate link on my site several years ago; one particular company clicked on that link and then signed up with my affiliate partner and started a website through them. This form of business has been around long before the internet, but with the technology that is available today it is very easy to track and compensate affiliates.
