Erica and I discuss a lot of stuff that’s not business. Sex, drugs and rock n’roll, life the universe and everything: we’ve chewed it over, on the phone, by email, when sharing a room at business conferences and even during a retreat. Since starting ACEInspire, we’ve gone beyond what most business partners discuss, and our new website, ACE Vie is the outlet for all that.

If you’re like us, you’ve probably got many and diverse interests. Did you know Erica loves the King of Rock, Elvis, while Antonia’s a fan of …

What does improving your blog mean to you?

Yesterday we talked about ‘improving your blog’, but what does that mean to you? For some people it is all about the interaction – do you want more comments on your blog or more people signing up to follow it. You might be unsure about some of the basics – how often to blog, how to embed images or create video content. Or you might want to make money from your blog. Take a moment to consider what would make your blog better.
The Advanced Blogging Action Pack will help you …

What’s Britmums Live All About?

If you’re not at Britmums Live, you might wonder what everyone is tweeting and blogging about this weekend. Around 500 mums, and a few dads, are all at The Brewery conference centre in London, learning more about blogging. I’m writing this from the event – listening to a talk by Erica Douglas about making money from your blog. Today you could have learnt about Pinterest, writing your own eBook (that was the session I ran), blogging for happiness, Facebook for bloggers etc. The learning part of the event is great, and I’ve …

The term ‘lifestyle business’ has negative connotations, but why? Who doesn’t want a life!

Mention that you run a lifestyle business and you’re likely to attract a patronising smile and comments like ‘it must be nice to earn some extra pocket money’. To which, a REAL lifestyle business owner will either a) wander off chuntering ‘bloody pocket money’ under their breath or b) walk away smug in the knowledge they’ve …

On the 5th June I’ll have been blogging for 6 years.  I’ve blogged for fun.  I’ve blogged for money.  I’ve blogged for business.  I’ve written eCourses on blogging and even had a book published.  They say it takes 10,000 hours to become an expert on a topic.  There isn’t much I haven’t seen, tried, done, read about when it comes to blogging.
Over the years I’ve watched people start blogs and it’s been the launch pad to freelance careers, publishing deals, businesses.  I’m not exaggerating when I say I’ve seen the …
