An online colleague asked me to compose 3 lists and email them.  Now I’m going to guess the reason was two-fold.

Creating the lists helped me get really clear about what I can do, have done, and the direction I’m striving to move toward.  Emailing the lists provided proof that I did as asked.  And I do so appreciate that because I’ve always known that accountability to ME isn’t always my strongest suit.

Since my Uber driving has been halted for 3 weeks and counting, I have been diligently updating and revamping my online presence as I find myself in re-invention mode – again.

When I bought this domain 11 years ago, it was my attempt at having a place where people could find resources that had been beneficial to me in my search for ‘making money online’.  Blogging was not the goal, although it was supposed to be.  Honestly, I didn’t feel confident enough that what I wanted to write about in 2007 and beyond would be of interest to others.

That feeling combined with not really wanting to share whatever I was thinking, in writing, was a serious stronghold in my mind from law school.  It was that entire first year experience, and the flunking out of law school, that led me to incorrectly believe for way too many years that I could not write.

In more recent years, I’ve overcome those feelings because I realized over time that I write daily.  And I can indeed put the English language together, so others understand.  So that means I can write!

I shared all that because I’ve been toying with the idea of freelance writing, although still not sure what I’d want to write about.  In the meantime, however, as I update my new site by moving content from here to, I wanted to announce that this is my last blog post on Net Marketing For Newbies.  The domain is due to renew in October and I’ve decided 10 years is long enough for it to be somewhat dormant.

This was the first website I taught myself to build. In fact, the first iteration of this site was hand-coded with HTML.  I had taught myself enough to be ‘dangerous’.

Anyway, the lists I was asked to create are being shared here because I realize there are people who do not know what I do or how I could potentially assist them.

Now that there’s a new place for my content at, I thought it was time to make that information clearer. 🙂

10 Things I AM Really Good At

  2. Proofing (finding errors and fixing them)
  3. Creating PowerPoint slides, PDFs
  4. WordPress, Theme & Plugins Setup
  5. Designing Websites for people who don’t know how, or who do not have the time to do (not sure I can call myself a web designer, but I enjoy building websites, so they are functional and nice looking)
  6. Configuring Memberships Sites (DAP, Wishlist, Thinkific, InstaMember)
  7. Setting up the Opt-in and Funnel Processes
  8. Quick screen-sharing “how to” videos
  9. Troubleshooting computer/internet issues; things that don’t work as expected
  10. Making sure systems work as intended (quality control)
  11. Remembering how to do anything I’ve seen done on the computer. My gift or super power is my memory
  12. Quickly learning and understanding software, and if necessary, implementing immediately
  13. Talking to people
  14. Sharing helpful/useful computer/internet usage information
  15. Technical writing (detailed instructions, FAQs)

  2. Clear and frequent communication

  4. Some want/need “Hand-holding” or Step by Step Instructions/Training to implement and finish whatever they need to get done . . . NOW

My Hiatus Is Over and That’s Good for YOU!

Almost a year ago, I ran a New Client Special and gained several new clients in a matter of hours. That was an INCREDIBLE day and feeling! There was no sales page, but a wonderful client posted about it on Facebook, and people got an idea of how I could best assist them from

A lot has transpired and changed in the past year. I have been on hiatus while life as I knew it in Daytona Beach came to an end, and I reluctantly found myself back in Atlanta. There’s a testimony I’d love to share about it all, but instead, I want to share what I’ve been up to offline, and the reason WHY I’m offering this New Client Special again.

A week after returning to Atlanta, I was offered a job at a small downtown law firm.  But after 30 days of being offline for 12-14 hours every day, I gave that job back, and decided to drive for Uber instead! You can read those details here.

Who knew I would actually enjoy driving around in Atlanta’s notorious traffic to give rides to strangers? Especially since I had been resisting coming back to Atlanta for over 6 months BECAUSE of the traffic!

I’m so grateful, however, that God’s Blessings (the name of my car), has provided the means for me to semi-climb out of the financial disaster that was my life this time last year.

Since August, I’ve driven over 35,000 miles, easily met and driven over 1,500 people, and currently have 800 5-star ratings. But I’m not trying to kill my car! Besides, I REALLY miss working online as I had been doing for the past 10 years.

To help with increasing my income while simultaneously trying to reduce my driving time, I applied for a few work at home positions that I thought could provide predictable pay. One company was particularly attractive until I discovered that their clients would be in control of the time of day that I work, and that simply is NOT going to work for me.

And this past weekend, I call myself starting a bartending gig at a local establishment. Friday night, I was SO tired and cold when I left, I couldn’t even make myself Uber the St. Patrick’s Day drunk crowd!

Saturday was spent in bed, in pain, with a cold. 🙁 Needless to say, I didn’t go back for my second night on Sunday. Instead I chose to drive to make up for time missed Friday night and Saturday. Confirmation that I made the right decision was earning more in 1-1/2 hours on Sunday than the 7-1/2 hours I donated to that local establishment on Friday!

When I ponder where I was in my life this time last year, compared to where I am now, I AM THANKFUL. He’s making ways out of no way, and I am reminded of the miracles I experienced last year. One of them was the overwhelming response to my New Client Special.

Now that my hiatus is over, I want to get back to helping people who need what I offer online. Below are portions of the email sent last year:

“If you are in need of some virtual assistance help, this is the week to get it – at a “Try It Before You Buy It” discounted rate.

Here are a few of the projects I have been working on for clients:

– Completed a full membership site in a weekend, beginning to end, from scratch
– Revised Powerpoint slides, updating from an older template to a newer template
– Listened to replays of past teleseminars and took notes to help client create slides in PowerPoint
– Created a sales page for a free telesummit and the download page for 19 speakers’ audios
– Created a squeeze page and thank you/download page
– List setup, integration, and initial email messages
– Answered support questions via email
– Researched help desk support platforms and set up a FREE help desk system
. . .
Here is short list of the programs I use:
– Aweber
– Infusionsoft
– Instabuilder and IB 2.0
– Optimize Press 1 and 2
– Powerpoint
– Teamwork
– Wishlist
– WordPress

So now . . . about that special deal I mentioned. You can pick up a package of 5 hours of work for a FRACTION of the usual fee. Just $97 gets you 5 full hours of work, done as quickly as you need it done . . .

There is no sales page for this, so if you have questions, go ahead and email me now.

Obviously, there has to be a limit – because my time is limited like yours. I can only offer this to the first 5 people who send $97 to my special PayPal link. When I see your order come in, I will email you right away and we can get started.
. . .
Now is the time to get those projects out of the way, off your plate, and DONE. I can help. But you’ve got to act now because this special offer goes away soon.

I’m looking forward to working with you!

If you decide my technical skills and expertise could be of assistance and benefit to you, please accept my New Client Special at a discounted rate (available for a limited time) HERE.

If you would rather have a conversation first to see how I can best assist you, then feel free to schedule a date and time on my calendar and Let’s Talk!

Here’s to knowing that I’m looking forward to Making YOU Look Good, and Making Things Work Right!
