Online Events Weeks 18 and 19 2019: Scaling Without Burnout and Copyright Matters

Each week I do at least one self-publishing video or audio event online and once a month I run a workshop for those who want to go creative in business. Here are my online events Weeks 18 and 19 2019, the one just done and the next up.

Online Events Week 18 2019: Advanced Self-Publishing Salon: How to Scale your Author Income Without Burnout

There are tools and techniques that make the job easier and the key is knowing what you really want and saying no to everything else.

And the importance of blocking time, adopting positive routines and building a freelance team as you grow.
