The Importance Of Having A Mentor

No matter how good you are at your craft, there really is nothing like being able to have a mentor.

Most business owners and successful online entrepreneurs will admit that a mentor was a big part of their success.

A lot of people feel like they can do everything on their own and this is something that can lead to a lot of problems.

If you are serious about succeeding in life, you will need to know the importance of having a mentor.

There really is nothing like having someone tell you that what you are doing is wrong.

A lot of people go through life without having an idea as to what they are doing and this is why it’s important to have someone guide you.

Having a mentor will take you through the steps and let you know if you make a mistake. A mentor is someone that more experience and someone that you can trust.

Remember that there are mistakes that you can commit without you ever knowing about it and so that you will need to find the right mentor.

In order to succeed, you will need to make sure that you find the right mentor. However, finding one can be one of the toughest things to do.

Though you might associate a “mentor” as someone that is older than you, a good idea is to simply just worry about their experience and knowledge.

The person does not need to be older but someone that can truly guide you the right way. Whether it is your boss, teacher, coach or even a family member, it is important that you choose one correctly.

If you are serious about succeeding and being able to avoid mistakes with your business or life in general, it is crucial that you find the best mentor possible.





What I’ve Been Reading

Been reading the Flip The Shift by PJ McClure. He talks about mindset and success and the things what make the results of seemingly similar people so very different. This quote is from his book when he talks about trying to eliminate negative thoughts:




Do You Send Thank You -Cards To Your Customers?

Do you send postcards to your customers? Ever thought about sending? Maybe you should! When we meet people online, interract with them, it’s nice to remember the people with a small gift or by sending a thank you -card to them. There are several online services for printing out cards. You can do it with your home printer also but to get a better quality, low cost prints there’s for example the VistaPrint. Here’s a sample card you can take a look or save it to your computer (there’s a download link below it) for editing it with your details and getting it printed out. :) Regards, Armi.

I’m Playing With Typekit Fonts!

While I’ve been playing with Typekit fonts for the past couple of days I did realize that it’s been too long since I’ve written anything to my other blogs than the ArmieXpress. It will be my main blog for the simple reason that it”s the only hosted WordPress blog I got. Yeah, I could have made this domain my main blog but this blog looks ok without major tweaking so I just let it be here in Posterous.





25 Best Blogging Ideas To Keep Your Readers Coming Back For More


Have you ever experienced the so-called “writer’s block” while trying to come up with new ideas to blog about? Those dry spells can be tough when you just can’t seem to think of anything to write about.

I have come up with a list of 25 blogging ideas and tips I have found will ward off that annoying writer’s block. Here goes:

  1. Review a product. Who doesn’t like to find out if a product is worth the money or not? Let your audience have a sneak peek.
  2. Expand on a comment left on your blog. Comments can spark great discussion and even better blog posts!
  3. Give a tip list. Just like this one. They are helpful and useful.
  4. Do an interview. Find an expert in your niche, interview them, and either put the interview in it’s entirety as a post or break it up into several posts.
  5. Run a contest.
  6. Conduct a poll.
  7. Use a guest blogger. This is one of the easiest ways to ignore “writer’s block.” Get someone else to blog for you!
  8. List a few of your favorite websites and tell why you like them and why your readers will too.
  9. Give reasons you like social media (or not!)
  10. Write about someone who inspires you.
  11. Do a how-to video. These are becoming more and more popular. You are essentially creating a tutorial for your readers.
  12. Grab a news headline and relate it to your niche.
  13. Solve a problem.
  14. Do a Q & A. You might even get the questions from the comments on your blog!
  15. Share your experience from a live event.
  16. List your favorite books.
  17. Recommend your favorite blogging tools. If you’re a blogger, you’ve got them. Share.
  18. Share your recent challenges. Sharing something you have had to overcome helps others reach their goals too.
  19. Reveal a failure. This does two things. It makes you very “real” to your reader and it also helps them not make the same mistake.
  20. List upcoming live events with dates, time, and place.
  21. Have a good rant. Controversy never hurt anyone. In fact, a little controversy will bring more readers to your blog. Nobody wants to read vanilla and bland blogs on a regular basis!
  22. List your most popular blog posts (anyone noticing the theme of “lists?” )
  23. Share how you monetize your blog.
  24. List your best marketing ideas. Or list ideas pertaining to your particular niche. Ways to make your reader’s life a little better!
  25. Write a list of 25 great blog ideas. OK, I couldn’t resist!

          Really, if you think about it, there is no reason to run out of ideas to blog about. Chances are, one of these 25 items will get your creative juices flowing!

          Remember, the reason you decided to blog is to improve your business. Download your free copy of “How To Be A Profitable Blogger” by visiting to learn how to make your blog more profitable.
