How much I made on Fiverr in my first year as a photographer? - Suger Coat It

How much I made on Fiverr in my first year

It all started with a simple question, can I earn money on Fiverr as a photographer? Keen to get into doing more product photography, I was looking for a way to find clients and generate more work for myself. A YouTube video about a freelance copywriter on CNBC's...

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. 

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...

Why I think 2020 will see the return of the personal blog

Why I think 2020 will see the return of the personal blog

This is it! The time has come for the resurgence of the personal blog. Not that they were gone-gone or anything. But with the rise of the Insta-blogger, twitter-superstar and all the tween Tik-Tokers, blogging has been a little out-dated. Short, punchy and on platform...

How I’m improving my phone social media habits

How I’m improving my phone social media habits

As far as being on social media goes, I consider myself pretty balanced. I work a lot online and over the years have developed ways to manage the distractions of notifications and the draw of new posts. For those playing at home, I use MUTE a lot. Like, a lot a lot....

How to be a PR friendly blog

How to be a PR friendly blog

I receive emails sometimes with PR requests and offers, and opportunities. Always lots and lots of opportunities. I consider my blog to be a PR friendly blog; I respond to emails that have a call to action or request, love to attend events and will do so if I can. And...

Things you should know about working for yourself

Things you should know about working for yourself

Maybe these things are universal, or perhaps they are just me. But I thought, maybe it would be fun to talk about the things you should know about working for yourself. I'm a veteran now, basically. I've been back full-time working for myself for a year. And in some...

My Work from Home Daily Routine

My Work from Home Daily Routine

Having a work from home daily routine isn't something I planned on. I was pretty casual about such things. But I've been working for myself for a while now, so it was time, right? I left my job almost a year ago, and I've been working for myself full-time ever since....

Do you know what’s next in your career?

It's that time of year where we review and revise our plans for the year ahead. There's a pretty good chance that it might be around your career. Whether it be making the move in your current position or expanding a side hustle. Quitting the day job or finding your...

Oh boy, what have I done!

Oh boy, what have I done!

This morning I committed to a blog post. That was before I realised that my to-do list really didn't leave much room for such things. But, a promise is a promise. After digging through a bunch of drafts with no half-finished winners (judge me if you will, haha), it...

I outsource household chores so I don’t lose my mind

I outsource household chores so I don’t lose my mind

I'm not sure I've ever met anyone THAT into doing the washing or cooking (every. single. night). Me either. A very strong ME EITHER. And that's why we outsource household chores. I'm not sure if you know but I especially hate the fact that when you do your dishes,...

Are you ready to work for yourself?

Are you ready to work for yourself?

Just last week I gave notice at my day job to go back working for myself full-time. Even though it's been pretty casual over the past year, this will give me the ultimate freedom to work in and on my business. I'm excited and nervous because you never can tell when...
