Indoors is OKWith these hot summer days in SW Ohio, the temps are in the upper 90s with the real feel of 100+ thanks to the river valley humidity.These are great days to stay indoors and work with trainings here at Wealthy Affiliate. Some might see the heat and humidity as a bummer, I see it as an opportunity.
My thanks go to a friend who introduced me to a wonderful process to stay motivated and on-track with my goals. The process is outlined in the book titled "The Miracle Morning" by Hal Elrod.

StrugglesDoes anyone else feel like they are drowning during the first month? I know that I am. I'm maybe halfway through bootcamp and struggling with writing. Passive voice and bad grammar are present in everything I write. I have a niche, one that I'm living, and have ideas for posts, but as I write them, I hit a wall of self-doubt. I've started posts and then trashed them because they don't feel right. I keep working every day. I understand that effort over time will yield results. Butting m
Taking a BreakFirst off, taking a break is NOT quitting. After a couple of weeks here, I took a break and it felt like I was quitting. I beat myself up for a few days. Then, my attitude changed. Even as it did, it took two days for me to realize it.I live in a remote area. As a practicing hypnotist, I used to share a small office in a busy area. That office closed and I opted to work from home. I discovered that my previous clients did't want to drive to my country home. I entertained the thou
