Behind the scenes at Wave headquarters: Accounting tool for solopreneurs

Confession: I used to create PDF invoices in Word and email them to clients. We all have those first pancakes in business. Those things that make us cringe when we look back, but we know the experience makes us who we are today. Invoices were definitely a first pancake for me. Wave was the answer for that. I found Wave about 3 years ago, and I started using the bookkeeping side of things right away.

That time I lost $1000+ in monthly recurring revenue overnight (And what I did about it!)

In the middle of last year, I had the perfect storm. There I was, working away like normal. Until the emails started rolling in...a few clients needed to stop or pause retainers for one reason or another. (Like: they lost a huge client themselves and were forced to decrease expenses. Um...That means me.) Over the course of a few days, I lost about $1000 in monthly recurring income.

9 sites to check when you're curating content for social media

It's a problem we all face eventually. It doesn't matter if you're a social media manager, or a solopreneur, we all need to find and share other people's content. And, eventually, we've all experienced having "run out" of things in the queue. (We'll talk about the 80-20 rule another time.) For now, I'll just say - I've been there. I know you've been there at some point or another. If you're like me, you've started scrambling.

3 things I learned in my first year as a mompreneur

Our sweet boy turned one year old. We had a low-key, (Mickey-themed) birthday party with our family. He had a great time seeing all of his favorite people in one room, and playing with all of his cousins! It was a wonderful day, but his birthday also marks something big for my business: I've been balancing motherhood and solopreneurship for 1 year now.

I've accomplished a lot in my life and biz, but by far I'm most proud of being a work-at-home mom.

It's Easier Than You Think To Integrate ConvertKit and Squarespace (Video Tutorial)

One of the most common ConvertKit questions I get is actually not even a difficult thing at all. I'm often asked about the difficulty level of integrating ConvertKit with Squarespace. It's completely true that, for Wordpress users, the process of integrating ConvertKit is a little bit more seamless. That's because of the CK plugin available to them. But that doesn't make it impossible for those of us on Squarespace! You can totally master it. Here's how:

How to create a ConvertKit broadcast from an RSS Feed

Lately, I've surprised a few of my clients by telling them about this lesser-known ConvertKit feature. It's not for everyone, but it's definitely a nice feature that I think is underutilized. You can add your RSS feed to your ConvertKit account, and create broadcasts with the content of your latest blog posts. This would be great for you if: You're struggling to keep up with creating regular content. Sending one of your blog posts from the week might be a really great compromise.
