This year I have decided to do something new and that is to have a monthly Spotlight for one of my customers and/or students. These are people who have taken action and are creating their own home business income stream. This might be publishing books on Amazon, creating an Etsy or Shopify store, starting a new blog or setting up their own website or planner business.
Our next Spotlight for July 2022 is Christina Deptulski at CJD Laptop Lifestyle.
I am so glad to see that Christina has a new store and am excited to share it with you all. Here's her responses to my questions.
1. Please share with us your background, where you run your business from and a bit about yourself.
For about 20 years, I was an elementary teacher, college assistant professor, and college librarian.
During that time, I created many lessons and worksheets to help my students achieve essential goals.
More recently, I have been an executive assistant.
I have dedicated my entire professional life to helping people make their dreams come true and their lives easier!
I run my business from a picturesque New England town.
2. What made you want to decide to start your store? What types of products do you create?
When the pandemic hit, I realized I wanted to take my personal use printables business to the next level and help other online business owners achieve their goals as printable sellers.
I spent many hours learning everything I could about creating PLR printables through courses, training, networking with other creators, and mentorship.
Ultimately, I knew I wanted to help other online business owners and teach others how to create and reimage printables.
I create planners, journals, and courses. Also, I just started selling coloring pages and color clipart.
3. What’s your favourite tool for creating your content?
I love using PowerPoint to create my content. I have used it for a long time, so I am very comfortable with many of the different features.
4. What advice would you give to anyone just starting out?
I would highly recommend new creators start out investing in at least a 1 month of mentorship with a proven successful mentor. Your mentor can help you prioritize, connect you with the right tools, and share their expertise.
In addition, I would recommend you join a Private Facebook Group with like-minded business owners. This will help you network, get answers, and learn from people in the same niche.
5. Where do you see yourself and your business in the next five years?
In the next five years, I see myself making a full-time income with my PLR business.
I also see myself running a successful personal use store.
I am determined to stay flexible and willing to pivot my business, if necessary, in order to meet the needs of my audience.
6. Please share anything else you would like us to know about your business.
I enjoy communicating with other people in my field through my emails, and my private Facebook Group CJD Laptop Lifestyle Printable sellers.
7. What’s the name of your store?
8. How can people sign up to your affiliate program?
