$450 Wordpress Website Design


We are one month into the new year and I hope that means you are exactly where you want to be. Just in case, if you ready to build a new website to match your new year vision I've got a plan for you.


As part of my Build It On a Budget How-to Series, this month I am offering two SistaSense / BBWO Readers my 5 Page Web design package for $450 with the code WEB450.


What Comes with this Package?
Web Design is one of the services that I provide on SistaSense. With this package I can design a custom branded website for you on the wordpress platform. Your new site will include 5 packages: Home, About, Services, Blog, and Contact Us. This package is normally $650, which is a steal at the current rates for custom websites, but with my "Build It On a Budget Plan" this package just got even better.


How does this offer work?
If you would like to be one of the two people who get access to my "Build It On A Budget Plan", click here to review my 5 page package and use the code 'WEB450' to reserve your spot. This is a one time payment and your site will be built in approx 2 weeks.


What if I miss the coupon code?
You can also try the code 'WEB100' to save $100 off the regular 5 Page Package OR use the code 'PAR50' if you want to make a two part payment on the regular 5 page package.

How To Overcome Procrastination


Ask any entrepreneur what their biggest challenge is in the business, and almost anyone will tell you it is or has been the question of how to overcome procrastination. Procrastination in general is a huge issue for many entrepreneurs. We all want the freedom of not having a supervisor or boss telling us what to do everyday.

We dream of waking up when we want, showing up to work or leaving when we want, take naps in the middle of the day just because, long lunches, and having a margarita with friends at noon, however the majority are not equipped to handle the discipline needed to manage our time.

So is there an easy way? Is there a book written on the art of how to overcome procrastination? There probably is, but more than likely you'll put off reading it so

How Would Dr. King Want You to Celebrate the King Holiday?

Have you ever thought about how Dr. King would want you to celebrate the Dr. Martin Luther King Holiday?  Would he want you to attend services where choirs sing songs of inspiration?  Would he want you to participate in programs where 6th graders reenact the Dream Speech?  Would he want you to go to lectures given by other civil rights veterans?  Would he encourage you to enjoy lunch and dinner specials at your favorite restaurant, or take advantage of the deals provided by retailers?  Would he want the Holiday to be a day of service, or a day of rest?


In pursuit of his Dream, Dr. King probably had few days off.  Fighting for civil rights has no “down time”.  Discrimination and bigotry don’t take holidays.  Dr. King’s dream for us was to have freedom of opportunity in America.  The opportunity to elect those who would serve us best.  The opportunity to be educated at the schools of our choice.  The opportunity to live where ever we wanted to live.  The opportunity to be gainfully employed.  The opportunity to start our own businesses.   The opportunity to pursue our own dreams.


Celebrating the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King is not a singular event.  Instead it is a reminder that pursuing dreams is a 24/7/365 thing.  It does not begin or end on January 15th.  I believe that Dr. King would want you to live everyday of your existence striving to be all that you can be.  He would encourage you to continually seek and find your purpose.  He would implore you to make sure you make a difference.  Above all, Dr. King would want you to persistently and tirelessly pursue your own dreams Everyday.

Choosing Your Theme for 2014

Happy 2014! It’s a new year, and I’m super excited about what’s in store. Something that I’ve been doing for the past couple of years to prepare for a fabulous year is coming up with a theme/word that I want my life to entail. This year, my theme is THRIVE:

  1. to prosper; be fortunate or successful
  2. to grow or develop vigorously; flourish

My goal for this year is to thrive in all areas of my life: spiritually/mentally, financially, in my relationships, business — everything. So for the rest of the year, I’ll be consciously making an effort to thrive.

If you haven’t already, I encourage you to choose a theme/word to focus on this year. So how do you go about choosing your theme for 2014?

Simply meditate and think on how you want your life to be and the person you want to become in the new year. Then, think of (or research) a few words that describe this, and choose one in verb format so it’s action-oriented. Some ideas include lead, excel, prosper, succeed.

Have a fabulous, successful + prosperous new year!

“Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.” - Oprah 

What’s your theme for this year? Please let us know by leaving a comment!

Beyonce Is Doing It Right

Beyonce surprised the world with dropping her CD on Friday 13th. She told her fans and her fans told their friends. She sold over 800,000 CD in one day.

That’s the kind of word of mouth you want for your writing or your business.

I’m on Beyonce mailing list, so I received her email about the CD, but I never got a chance to read it because her fans jumped on the social media and they went wild with talking about how great the CD and accompanying videos were.

Where you one of those who downloaded the CD without hearing one song?

I can say that I didn’t download the music, only because it’s on itune and I don’t do itune.

However I did hear the music this week and I will be getting a copy of the CD once it comes to where I buy my music.

Here’s what you can learn from Beyonce:

1.  Have a fan base. A fan base are who buy your books. This is your gold. You want to know who is buying your books and you want to know how to get in touch with them.

If you don’t have a fan base, start yours today.

2.  Word of mouth is still KING. Beyonce couldn’t have paid for all the free advertisement she received from her fans and their friends.

Talk about your book, have your friends and fans talk about your book.

3.  Social media can help with promotion. Beyonce fans were on social medias. All of them. Talking about her CD, taking pictures, writing FB status, sending tweets. They were everywhere, talking about her CD.

Are you on social media? Don’t miss out on this free promotion place. Find the places your readers are and sign up and engage with your readers.

4. Don’t miss a sale. My only complaint about Beyonce tactics is she sold the CD only on itunes for the day. She moved to other places later. However she lost a lot of sales because everyone is not on itunes.

Don’t miss out on sales because you don’t sell your book in all the right places that the readers are. Choosing one place to focus your sales, means you are losing sales from readers who buy from other places.

What do you learn from Beyonce?
