REFINE YOUR MESSAGE
The first phase of creating a successful, profitable blog is to refine your message–not just what you say, but how you want your readers to feel when they come to your site. EBA will show you exactly how to hone and craft and perfect your message until it is a part of you, so that your audience can tell at a glance what you are all about, and what they have to gain by being there.

You know what feeling I really hate? That feeling at the end of the day when I know I haven’t done my best work. Instead of feeling great about everything I did, I feel frustrated, defeated, deflated, and just plain stuck. And that feeling of knowing I didn’t accomplish what I wanted to get done? […]
I want to remind you of something you learned when you were just a little munchkin. Using proper etiquette, minding your manners, treating people with respect, and carrying yourself in a way that reflects your values – these are all important things… but only up to a point. And just like anything else in life, […]
About a year ago, I hosted my 2018 EBA VIPs for our first (of four) two-day strategy session of the year. It was such a great mix of people! There were veteran bloggers who are already pulling in six- and seven-figure incomes from their blogs, and then there were bloggers who are still in the […]
If you’ve read my book, How to Blog for Profit, or if you have checked out our recommendations for how to prepare to start EBA, you probably already know that the very first thing I recommend for new bloggers is to set up a self-hosted blog on WordPress. And it’s not that there are no other options […]
