How to Start and Build an Online Business You Love – Part 3 of 3

This is part 3 out of 3 blog posts I’m writing, designed to inspire you to finally start and grow that online business you’ve been dreaming about.

If you missed Part 1, start with that here.  It’s all about the initial phases of business, why you want to start one and how to find what to sell.

Part 2 is here and is about getting started, setting your vision and taking daily action. I also answer a lot of questions that you might be asking yourself about. You might be having a lot of fears. We all […]

    How to Start and Build an Online Business You Love – Part 2 of 3

How to Start and Build an Online Business You Love – Part 2 of 3

Welcome back to my 3-part series on how to start and build an online business that you love.

If you missed Part 1, you can find that here. It helps you find your Passion (your big WHY – your VISION) as well as discusses the Practical side (the WHAT).

Once you have a pretty good idea of what to sell (which can honestly be the hardest part but don’t worry, you’ll get it!), it’s time to start getting down to the nitty gritty, listing those products for sale and making sure your idea is viable.

Things to keep in mind […]

How to Start and Build an Online Business You Love – Part 1 of 3

Welcome!

Thank you for joining me today. Grab a cuppa something cozy and let’s chat.

First of all, you’re here because in some way you’re interested in starting and/or growing your own business so that you can live the life that you love. Whatever that means for you… more time with family. More freedom. More money. A sense of achievement.

Let me start by introducing myself in case you’re new here. My name is Chandi Agee, owner of Expression Fiber Arts, a positive twist on yarn. I’ve been running online businesses since I was 21 (previous business was cosmetics and skin care) […]

Resolutions not working? Feeling lost? Try this.

Have you ever set a goal, determined you were going to make it work this time no matter what and then… life got in the way and it never happened?

Maybe you wanted to lose weight and a few weeks into going to the gym, you get sick and skip a week and then… never go back.

Maybe you want to read more books this year or start a business or change jobs or do more community work… and then… life.

And then usually, you feel like a failure. You’re disappointed in yourself. You determine that you’ll try again next week. You’ll […]

Top 5 Books of 2016

If you’re anything like me, you LOVE reading. I mean… love it. You have a stack of books at all times ready to be devoured.

Reading is incredible.

You can step into a new world without ever leaving your home.

I thought a nice little compilation of my favorite books from this year would be a great idea and hopefully give you some juicy reading fodder.

These are not in order as that would be just WILD to try and do, but these stand out as the Top 5 Books I Read in 2016:

1. The Untethered Soul by Michael Singer

You Don’t Have to Invent the Wheel

I’m usually a pretty quiet person, especially when meeting new people.

But if you start talking about business, I light up like a glowworm and won’t shut up.

It’s a fascinating subject and something I live and breathe daily. I’ve been running online businesses since I was 21-22.

For anybody wanting to start an online business, here is a tip:

You Don’t Have to Invent the Wheel (it’s already been invented. Hurray!)

Everytime we (the hubby and I) tell people what we do for a living, it 99.99% of the time goes like this:

Some person: What do you guys do for a living?

Us: We […]

A Chill Pill.

I took one.

I’ve lived 35 years on this planet. Most of those have been spent in fear. Anxiety has been a pretty consistent “friend.”

But then… something changed.

Imagine for a minute that you have a dream. Something you’ve wanted for a very, very long time. In fact, it’s so grand and inspiring that you don’t think it’s even possible.

But then it happens.

This happened to me back in June. I can’t say exactly what, but I felt like I had crested a hill in life. Things came true that I didn’t think ever really would. I was amazed. It […]

On Having a Voice…

What is today, what makes it special and why am I writing on this day?

It’s not New Year’s, is it? You know, when everybody starts new stuff and is all excited for the freshness of it all. Out with the old. In with the new. Nope.

Is it November 1st when people usually start their “things I’m grateful for” lists? Lemme check. Nope.

Is it my birthday? Nada. Already passed.

So what’s today?

Nothing special. Except it’s EVERYTHING.

Today is all I have. And all I will ever have.

You will never feel ready for that thing you […]

In case you’ve forgotten…

Well, hello there!

I’m so glad you popped in for a visit.

You may have forgotten something really, really important. I forget it sometimes. We all do.

Have you ever felt directionless? Blah? Not sure where your life is going to go from this point?

Which road should you take? How do you know where to jump and when to keep your feet planted?

Are you even needed on this planet? Do you have a gift you can offer the world?

Are you worth anything? Do you even matter?

Have you seen all the successful people online and thought… “Wow. What am I doing wrong? They have […]

New Haircut. New Me. New Projects.

The decision to cut my hair was quick and firm.

Tim was finally feeling better after a terrible bout of allergies and had rekindled his love of fashion and all things style and was researching it all online.

I was so inspired.

It hit me in an instant.

I knew right then and there I wanted to make a change. A big one!

“What think you of me getting a bob?”

“Do it,” he said.

So I pinterested and pinterested and came upon many examples I loved of both cut and color.

Made an appointment for the very next day and lollied up in that salon.

“A choppy […]
