Creation Creation is hard. Even God took the 7th day off. But as internet entrepreneurs we need to constantly be creating something. Whether it's making jewelry to sell on Etsy, writing erotica to publish on Kindle, or uploading t shirt designs to Merch. Growing up I never saw myself as a creative person. That's because my one idea of creativity involved drawing and painting, and I'm still a horrible artist. But humans are meant to be creative. After all, we've been making art for tens of thousands of years: [caption id="attachment_media-169" align="alignnone" width="326"] This...

What is a Townie? Being a local is a badge of honor- you know where the cool coffee shops are, you have a feel for the local culture, and you wear skinny jeans.

I liked to know my exact profit and total expenses for each item sold- that's why I would...

What is Rumination? Rumination is an obsessive focus on things that bother you.    And it can be about anything.  I've researched rumination a good bit, and heard somewhere that it becomes a chronic problem when we're trying to get closure on an event that has passed. But, as you know, it's impossible to go back and get a different outcome on something. And so this rumination habit becomes a self-sustaining cycle.

Royalties Ongoing payments from your work, also known as royalties, used to be reserved for the rich and famous- movie stars, popular authors, high level investors, and patent holders come to mind. But, with the rise of the internet and digital technology, royalties are now available to anyone with a computer. I love selling clothing on eBay and used books Amazon, but one of the negatives is that I need to go out and physically find the things to sell with these business models. This is fine if you have a car and live...
