6 reasons to go global - MoneyHi! I’m so happy you’ve found me and am honored you’re taking a moment to breathe in a little and skim my post.

I’m somebody who has made their way from broke, divorced Mom of three kids graduating from college in the worst economy since the Depression: Summer of 2008. And I did it from home in my little home town while bringing up 2 teenagers and a middle-schooler with no family within a hundred miles. You can do it too, if you want.

But first, WHY would you reach for something that sounds so crazy?

6 Reasons To Go Global Part 1: Making more money, honey!

Goodness knows I needed to feed my children without letting on how dire things had become. All my careful plans for getting a well paying job after college vaporized with the economy. I had bills to pay. Maybe you’re the same. Or maybe you simply want to stretch your wings to see how far you can fly with your art or business. But necessity is the mother of invention… More about how I fixed that later.

Golden egg in a nest of silverSome reasons the money’s better when you go global:

  • You play a zero sum game. There’s nobody or nothing to limit your growth. No committee to approve your worthiness to be here when you keep it genuinely social.
  • You get the true market value for what you offer. A friend recently told me about her brother’s woodworking business. Up until now he’s been crafting extraordinary works of art that most people in his small town have no frame of reference to appreciate. The value of his work is unappreciated in some places, but hugely valued by those who understand and value his craftsmanship.
  • You have more than enough buyers for what you’re offering, no matter how obscure, if it’s of quality.
  • You have the freedom to create something new at any time. You get to grow as you go.

If you’re thirsty enough, the world is ready for you, more than ever before.

Over the years I’ve crafted a perfect recipe for success online

Roasted-Garlic-Macaroni-and-Cheese example for how to sell your art online course recipeIt works like one of those great recipes where you can play with the ingredients for the rest of your life as long as you get the proportions right on what matters most. There are probably a million ways to make mac and cheese, including gooey smoked gouda, and cheddary baked versions. Yet, you can create a new one every week if you want, because the basic recipe, the formula, works: noodles, gooey cheesy stuff to bind them, seasonings, and heat. The trick is in doing it WELL… 🙂

(Take a peek at Gordon Ramsey’s Twitter account for a laugh if you want to see him roast other people’s food pictures. Hilarious! )

If you’re looking at creating a global business and want to know a lot more about what’s involved, I suggest you take my How To Sell Your Art Online course. It’s cheap, it covers the basics, including the mental/emotional blocks most people experience, (and how to move through them!), and is the award-winning formula that works so well Wiley Publishing asked me to write a book about it for them.

Take A Look.

All my courses are money back guaranteed for any reason – for a year. So you really can’t miss.

You’ll have everything you need to know and more to decide whether creating a global brand is for you and you’ll have a detailed recipe for how to do it.

Let’s do this! 🙂
