INTERESTED IN MAKING MONEY ONLINE?

let’s talk about making money online

Have you ever wondered if you have what it takes to quit your job and work for yourself? (You do btw). Looking for a way to generate a little bit of cash on the side or a full-time income, start a business or take on the big guys in business? Below you’ll find the most recent posts on all things making money online. As a blogger and business owner, I enjoy sharing what’s been working for me (and not), the new things I’m trying out and discovering and much more.

How I became a level one seller on fiverr - Suger Coat It

How I became a Level One Seller on Fiverr

When we left off in my last post, I was 45 days into my experiment. I was hopeful that a conversation would turn into a sale and asked you to keep your fingers crossed. Cliffhanger! It's been pretty much two months to the day since my last blog update. Even then, I...

Was Mr Big Carrie’s retirement plan all along?

Recently I was watching Sex and the City and as a thirty-something trying to do her best to run a business, live life and prepare for the future I found myself adding up the outfit changes and designer pieces, the apartment and meals, not to mention the taxis....

Show Your Work by Austin Kleon - Review by Suger Coat It

Show Your Work

Ever wonder how TikToks can, as is the case with XXL Scrunchie & Co, one of my new favourites, exponentially grow their business? How can social media sell out an entire line of products in a few hours, less in the case of those with larger platforms? So what...

Can I make money as a photographer on Fiverr? {Part 1}

The videos pop up on YouTube all the time, twenty-somethings making tens of thousands of dollars a month online. When you dive a little further, you’ll find a few main ways they do this. But the one that grabbed my attention (first) was Fiverr. I knew of the site,...

Learning to embrace procrastination - Suger Coat It

I’m learning to embrace procrastination

I've displaced myself again. As I mentioned in the email on the weekend, I'm having the floor of my office and the adjoining patio fished with epoxy. So, that meant time to pack it all up again. Which is, I have to say, a pretty smooth process these days. Changing...

What time off social media taught me about what's next for me - Suger Coat It

Taking a social media break helped me figure myself out

Over the last month, on my social media break (as much as work allows), I've noticed a few things. Things about my life that I completely missed in the non-stop app switch that is social media. Firstly, I'm not very satisfied with my life. I keep looking for...

Ways to make your blog reader friendly - Suger Coat It

Five things that make your blog reader friendly

I read somewhere on Facebook this week that list posts are passé. Done. Over. It turns out that I didn't get the memo because I LOVE to write the darn things. List posts help me corral my thoughts and line them up in neat little rows for you all, which is virtually...

Why I'm all about living more and working less - Suger Coat It

Why I’m all about living more and working less

When I say that I'm all about working less and living more, what does that mean to you? Books such as the 4-hour workweek springs to mind or every single clickbait online ad for making money while you sleep. There is a multitude of different things that could be coming to mind for you. But for me, it's about buying back my time. For what, you might ask? For freedom, thanks.

Goal Setting 101: planning and setting goals that work

I wanted to talk about goal setting and planning your life. But I didn't want to be one of those people pushing the whole new year/new you bullshit. You should know that from the start. But I'm all about creating my life, and I want that for you guys too. No matter the time of year or your experience of where you are right now it's a perfect time to set some personal goals for yourself, your life and go for it. 

The power in telling your story

The power in telling your story

If you’re following along on Instagram, you would know that I decided to set some time aside to read last weekend. My books of choice from my recent book haul were Carly Findlay’s Say Hello and her curated collection of stories Growing Up Disabled in Australia. On Saturday, after sending the super delayed Suger News, I signed off and started reading. That day I pretty much finished Growing Up Disabled before starting Say Hello the next morning. I loved them but this isn’t a book review. No, in this post I want to acknowledge the power of telling your story.

2020 Blog Wrap Up

2020 Blog Wrap Up

Here we are, on the very first day of 2021. Not me, I'm probably still in bed sleeping off a food coma. I'm sure the drink has nothing to do with it. This is past me, writing from the New Year's Eve morning with a determination to make sure we end this year on a high....

Why having a welcome page on your blog is essential

A year, maybe more ago, I read ProBlogger's 31 Days to Build a Better Blog. I was taking the steps and working through the daily tasks. Not always daily, in bunches here and there. One of the tasks was to create a Welcome Page for your blog. Somewhere you could...

Business Update: Going fulltime two years later!

Business Update: Going fulltime two years later!

It's hard to believe that it's two years since I said goodbye to my last remaining day job and went fulltime in my business. Seriously, it's been that long. How does one block of time feel so short but so long at the same time? But we made it. And to be honest, there...

Wondering if you should, or how-to, start a blog in 2020? Then, you've come to the right place. To be honest, I don't even know if I can write this post in the detail that I want to write it. But I can feel it bubbling out of me. This is a good sign; that's what it is...

Why I switched from MailChimp to FloDesk

Why I switched from MailChimp to FloDesk

Recently, I closed my MailChimp account. An account I had since 2011! 2011, team, do you remember the good old days? And if you receive the Suger News, you would know I switched to a new kid on the block, FloDesk. I'm going to talk a little more about it later, but...

create a life you love.

When I say 'create a life', I mean take your life and make it look how you want it to look, in all areas. Don't bump along with the status quo. Instead, figure out what you want for yourself, what you like and how you want to spend your time. It may start small by taking back a messy space in your house, wearing what you want or carving time out for yourself and ending up as big as you can imagine. Sounds good, right? Let's do this thing.
