Do You Want To Know How You Can Make Affiliate Sales Within 24 Hours – Even Without A Blog?
If so, you have come to the right place, my friend! I never imagined that growing my business, getting traffic, leads and sales could be this easy! At least that was until I took my 1st Pinterest Course, Pinning Your Way To Success.
Christina made everything SUPER CLEAR and provided me with all the tools I needed to get everything off to a roaring start! Truth be told, I tried to cheap out in the beginning and only bought The 5 Days To Profitable Affiliate Pinning Ecourse but I was hungry for more information. And I really wanted to amp up my game, so naturally, an upgrade was the only choice!
The Best thing about these courses is that you can apply these strategies to almost any product, affiliate program or website.
Most people really over look the power of Social Media and most certainly the impact Pinterest can have on any business!
When you combine these proven strategies along with the automation capabilities of Tailwind (which you learn more about in all the courses) your results are super charged!
Make Sure to watch the video below to learn how to use Tailwind Hashtag Finder.
Simple, automated tasks designed to get you more engagement and visibility. Stop wasting time manually doing these tasks and save yourself weeks of work! When I started utilizing Tailwind, my numbers really started to rise and my posts began to gain more traction! See above for Tailwind Stats.
What DOES Happen When You Have A Panic Attack In The Middle Of a Lake?
Well, this has definitely been a rough week or so for me! A Fibro flare up had already commenced and I was really looking forward to some relaxing time with the family at the cottage. Nothing beats the sunshine and listening to the sound of the waves! And no that is not the inner mermaid in me speaking, I actually have a fear of water but I love to look and listen.
( Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. If you click on one of the links in my post and make a purchase at no extra cost to you, I may receive a small commission.)
Along with my Fibro , I have also suffered from severe anxiety for the last couple of years but pretty much had that in check. Anyhoo, on to the story … I have never been jet skiing in my life and after watching my husband go on it for the second time I thought it would be as good as a time as any to face my fear and do something new.
Well, this is where the Law of Attraction comes in to play. Earlier my sister in law and I had been discussing whether or not we were going to give it a go and I expressed that I did, in fact, want to try it but I was afraid I was going to fall off and then have a panic attack in the water.
Guess what happened? I fell off and had a panic attack in the water!
It was very likely one of the scariest things that has happened to me. I know you might be thinking, as long as I was wearing a life jacket I was fine. But if you have ever suffered from a fear coupled with anxiety then you know it is not as simple as that.
I, of course, went under when I hit the water and as soon as I surfaced, the panic set in. I thought I was going to drown. Luckily my husband was able to talk me through it as I swam for my life back to the jet ski. The next hurdle was trying to get back on to the jet ski.
Because I have Fibromyalgia, I really lack upper body strength and I was really worried, scratch that terrified that I was not going to be able to get back on the jet ski. I looked at how far away the shore was and again panicked ( well it never really stopped).
Just imagine for a minute what it would be like to have a panic attack in the middle of the Lake!
( ok so, I wasn’t technically in the middle but I might have well been because that is how it felt to me at the time) I tried to take a minute to level out my breathing while I hung on to the back of the jet ski and mustered up the strength to hoist myself back on. After a few failed attempts and near tears at this point, I found some footing and was able to use my legs to help me get back on. A little battered and bruised, I hung on to my husband for dear life as we made our way back to shore.
Why am I I telling you all of this? Well, for a few reasons.
It can be easy to slip back into old patterns and habits, you just have to find that place inside, that voice, that says I CAN DO THIS AND I DESERVE THIS.
Because I have been taking courses and doing meditations geared around The Law of Attraction & Anxiety, I was able to face my fear and try something new.
[ Read more about how the Law of Attraction can work for you and How I was able to rid myself of the severe anxiety that plagued my life http://jenniferdawn.ca/how-to-get-the-law-of-attraction-to-work-for-you/ ]
I choose not to let my fear control me or have the power, instead, I use it as a motivator to make the changes necessary to be able to live the life that I desire and deserve! And to Motivate and Inspire others to do the same.
Where is the worst place you have had an anxiety attack and how did you over come it? Let me know in the comments below.
#2Make Sure that you Use SEO in Your Titles and your Photos that you upload– Pinterest is a big search engine .. Make sure that people can find what they are looking for.
#3 Which is by far the most common mistake made .. DO NOT just pin just an image and a url! Make sure you write a description that utilizes SEO . But for Heaven Sakes have a Description!
I do not know how many times I have passed on sharing content because it didn’t have a description. Tailwind will not let you pin anything that does not contain a description .. and if it doesn’t have one? Well the likely hood of me or any other blogger making a description for your pin is slim to none … we are looking to save time. #harshtruth

Whether or not you are a Blogger or just looking to promote a Side Hustle , Product or Business … You NEED Branded Content!
Branded Content not only looks more professional, it is a way for people to start recognizing you. Often you will associate certain colors , fonts & layouts as belonging to a certain person or product.
This = Branding.
How Do I Brand My Content?
One of the best ways to brand your content is with the use of styled stock photos. It took my Brand from a 2 to a 10 the moment I implemented the changes.
Let’s face it, not everyone is good with a camera or has the artistic talent and props to pull off a professional looking photo . I use a mix of Styled Stock Photos and my own photos but let me tell ya that the Stock Photos are a real time saver!
Where Do I get Styled Stock Photos?
I have a couple of places that I like to Shop for my photos , themes and fonts. They provide high quality images and affordable packages so whether you are a seasoned Pro or looking to get off on the right start , here are a few places you will want to have a look see …
Creative Market – Ahhh .. the beauty that can be found within these cyber walls …. If you are unable to find something to fit your needs/style, well ..then you must not be human . It really doesn’t matter what your niche is … Creative Market has what you need!
If you are anything like me then you rely on pretty journals, planners and notebooks to keep you organized and motivated!
I have several journals for different tasks and plenty of back ups as well.
I just can’t resist the temptation to stockpile them (with the intention of gift giving of course!)
Scroll through these stunning Journals and Notebooks … Do you see one you like?
I know several of them are calling my name!
Beautiful Journals , Planners & Notebooks
Etsy also has a great selection Of Journals , Planners, Notebooks and Diaries. Many of the selections on Etsy can be personalized or are printable so you can really customize. ( And while you are there check out some of the other beautiful organizational products that can be found)
I love having a Good Selection of things to write in. You never know when a moment of pure genius is going to strike and you will need to write something down in a hurry!
There are many uses for these beautiful Journals, Notebooks & Planners
write down recipes
write down ideas
Having such Beautiful & Inspirational things to write in connects with me on a spiritual level. You want things in your life that are going to be a positive influence in some way, shape or form. And these journals certainly provide that for me.
Another thing about me is that I like Organization , sometimes to an OCD level. But I want to be able to locate the information I am looking for and find it is easy to do this when I compartmentalize.
Do You Use Journals, Notebooks or Planners? What is the main thing that you use them for?
I would be lost without my planners and notebooks!
Leave me a message below and tell me why you couldn’t live without your planner.
It has been a crazy busy week for me (what else is new? )
Between launches,working on course creation, creating new content, curating Boards, new clients and my every day tasks this week ..well I have been pooched!
So how do I relax after a long day? A nice long soak, a glass of wine and some meditation!
Thankfully one of my tasks this week was testing out some products From an Etsy Store called Georgia Charms.
Some of you may know that before I became a Blogger I had owned a Candle & Gift Store that was mainly handcrafted items. I am a HUGE Etsy fan and love to support smaller businesses , especially ones that focus on handcrafted products. And if they make products similar to the ones I used to make ..well ya, I am a tad bit biased. I love testing out products .. I am a product Junkie!
Fact #1 – I Love Lush Products!
Fact #2 I LOVE Duplications of Lush Products even more!
I find that the smaller store owners really put some love & creativity in to their products. And Georgia Charms has some AMAZEBALLS dupes of some Lush Favorites.
I had the chance to test a few of her gems this past week , which was a really nice end to a long day … a few times!
So How Did The Products Compare?
To be quite honest with you … all of Georgia Charms products were better than the Lush Products that I have tried ..and remember.. I am a Lush Fan. This Girl knows her formulations!
The Giant Volumizing Sea Salt Shampoo did wonders for my hair! I never really had god second day hair and this shampoo not only gave a little lift to my baby fine hair but kept it from getting oily by the next day. Oh and it smells devine!
The bath bombs seemed to fizz forever and the bubble bars created a bubble bath like no other. I only used half as much as I would have of a Lush Bubble Bar and got twice the amount of bubbles! And again the smell … soooo good!The Tardis Bubble Bar was my favorite one of all and is really a Unisex kind of scent. Unicorn Horn was a light feminine fruity smell (Lovespell Dupe) and again crazy bubbles!
The Angel Skin Soapless Cleanser combined with a facial moisturizer by the same name has really evened out my skin tone . I don’t believe she has the moisturizer listed yet but hopefully she will list it soon because it is a winner!
I did an unboxing video which you can find on the sidebar. Do you want a review of the additional products that were in the box? Which Products do you want to try?
A healthier alternative to energy drinks & shots? I honestly didn’t even know that there was such thing as a healthier version. I have always been one who thought that they were all bad for you! Now don’t get me wrong, I have been known to reach for an energy drink once in a blue moon because I feel like I need the extra lift and because I like the taste.
However, as someone who has dealt with anxiety ..well energy drinks can be a definite trigger for me!
So I was really hesitant to try it myself .. but I opted to give the Caffeine Free Version a try but more about that in a minute…
I needed a test subject who wasn’t generally adversely affected by caffeine …cue husband. I also had a second test subject for one of the varieties.
Test Subject 1 – aka “The Husband”
He started with the Caffeine Free variety – He said that he felt it gave him a couple of hours worth of extra energy.
He then tried the double the caffeine and felt that this one was just too much, even for him. Made him very jittery to say the least. The jittery feeling lasted for 20 to 30 minutes and then he felt , in his words, “energized to the max”. The energy he said lasted for approximately 4 hours.
And finally the 1:1 which is the regular variety – This one was the most pleasant of the flavors and gave him several hours of an uplifted energy (also roughly 4 hours). Not at all jittery and just felt like he could accomplish anything that day. So for him the winner was the regular 1:1 .. No Jitters & a more pleasant flavor with about the same energy he felt he got from the one with double the caffeine.
Test Subject 2 – aka “The Son” ( now before anyone gets all in a huff… my son is in his 20’s and volunteered. He is big in to nutrition and pre workouts , so he made a perfect person to test these. Not to mention his affinity to Energy drinks …
He only tried the 1:1 but said it tasted good and he took it one morning on the way to work because he was extremely tired and didn’t even realize right away that he just wasn’t tired anymore. He said that feeling lasted well in to the afternoon. Again the 1:1 got a favorable review.
And finally for my own thoughts on the product. I only tried the caffeine free , one I had already given the 2 bottles I had out to my other two testers and because I am sensitive to caffeine, more than 2 cups in a day and I am jittery and anxious usually, so I thought it best to play it safe with the caffeine free version. I had the perfect opportunity to test it as well. I had been up for a few hours already and honestly was ready to crawl back under the covers! I had absolutely no energy or ambition, then I remembered that I still had the Ruckpack shot. Within about 15 mins I honestly was not tired anymore . I sat for about another 30 minutes to see if I would get tired if I was still sitting and low and behold … nope! I got up got dressed and cleaned my bathroom. A glamorous task, I know but I REALLY did not feel up to it! Not only did I clean that bathroom so good that even Mr Clean would be proud , I got several other tasks accomplished as well. Had it not been for the energy the Ruckpack shot gave me I probably would be fast asleep dreaming that I had the energy to get things done! And of course because it was caffeine free, I did not suffer from any jitters!
The shots are available in the following formulations and flavors:
– Raspberry Grenade: Naturally boost energy, endurance and focus with the only nutritional supplement born on the battlefield. We took out the caffeine and added a bunch of extra vitamins, minerals and amino acids. This multi-vitamin shot boasts the best non-caffeinated blend of taste, energy and focus in the market.
– Strawberry Assault: Naturally boost energy, endurance and focus with the only nutritional supplement born on the battlefield. With 120mg of caffeine and a delightful strawberry flavor, this shot is the perfect blend of taste, energy and focus.
– Citrus Ambush: Naturally boost energy, endurance and focus with the only nutritional supplement born on the battlefield. Natural Caffeine, colors, and flavors. With 240mg of caffeine, this shot is maximum energy for maximum effort.
With all the concern over the dangers of energy drinks and energy shots, it is time to offer the consumers a healthier alternative. With a non-caffeinated and a moderately caffeinated version, RuckPack offers alternatives to the current mega dosing of caffeine that currently exists within the energy shot market. RuckPack® Energizer Nootropic Shots are made with natural sweeteners, colors, and flavors. The caffeinated shot even contains natural caffeine from green tea. No sucralose. No synthetic caffeine. Plus, RuckPack® works to counter the negative effects of caffeine in other ways. Theanine helps blunt caffeine’s attack on the central nervous system while improving focus. Citrulline, a vasodilator is used to counteract the vasoconstriction caused by caffeine. We also add a powerful anti-oxidant, CoQ10, to restore a benefit of coffee lost during caffeine extraction. Now you can get all the benefits of caffeine while minimizing the side effects and bolstering the cognitive benefits! – RuckPack
AlphaSize® Alpha-GPC – AlphaSize Alpha-Glyceryl Phosphoryl Choline (A-GPC) is considered to be one of the most effective brain nutrients in the world, and is used widely in clinical settings around the world to combat memory loss, cognitive dysfunctions, and dementias of various kinds. A-GPC also has utility in “mind-to-muscle” sports nutrition formulations, where it acts to optimize muscular power output, sharpen agility, and also delay mental fatigue. This is a result of the fact that A-GPC helps speed cell to cell communication through neuromuscular optimization, providing enhanced muscular power output and agility for active and athletic individuals. It also promotes the production and maintenance of human growth hormone (HGH), the body’s master hormone for maintaining youth, vitality, and body composition.
Theanine – The RuckPack Energizers use Theanine independently of or symbiotically with natural caffeine. Caffeine and Theanine are a found together in nature – in green tea – and we don’t want to mess with a good thing! Theanine itself has been shown to offer a stimulatory effect on the mind. Studies have shown that Theanine supplementation can result in increased alpha brain wave production, signifying a calm, focused, mentallly alert state. This non-sedating, focused-calm also works to blunt the harsh side-effects caffeine has on the central nervous system. Simply put, Theanine helps mitigate the negative effects of caffeine, while supplementing the positive mental benefits that caffeine has to offer. The Caffeine-Theanine relationship is so positive, it is the most common nootropic pairing for cognitive enhancement.
Tyrosine – Tyrosine is an amino acide used to combat depression, attention deficit disorder (ADD), stress, Alzheimer’s, and chronic fatigue syndrome. It is also sometimes used to improve alertness following sleep deprivation. Tyrosine easily crosses the blood brain barrier to bolster cognitive functioning and it boosts dopamine levels in the body, thereby improving mood and motivation. Tyrosine, like other branched chain amino acids, assists in delaying the onset of fatigue during strenuous activity by minimizing the uptake of tryptophan to the brain.
MicroActive® CoQ10 – Coenzyme Q10 (COQ10) is a molecule produced in the body. It aids mitochondria during energy production and serves as a powerful anti-oxidant, protecting the body from the damage of free radicals. The Microactive form of CoQ10 maximizes bioavailabilty of this coenzyme, ensuring that the body recieves the maximum dose.
Citrulline Malate – L-Citrulline is used as a sports performance and cardiovascular health supplement and is proven to boost nitric oxide levels and improves the ammonia recycling process. L-Citrulline supplementation results in reduced fatigue and improved endurance for both aerobic and anaerobic prolonged exercise. Citrulline malate is a vasodilator that improves blood flow so well that it is has been proven successful in treating some forms of erectile dysfunction.
