How to Create More Abundance in Your Life and Business

abundance
Would you like more abundance in your life and business? I think most people would. I can always use more! 🙂

I’m going to share some strategies on how to do just that in this article. But first, let’s define what abundance is, so we’re on the same page.

Merriam-Webster has 3 definitions for abundance:
1) an ample quantity
2) affluence; wealth
3) relative degree of plentifulness

I think many people equate abundance with wealth. But money alone won’t make you happy. (Even though some people think so!) I believe having an abundance of peace, love and joy along with that money makes for a full, rich life.

I’ve been helping business owners create a profitable online presence through SEO copywriting and other online marketing strategies for nearly 10 years now. In that time, I’ve struggled with abundance, and have seen many of clients do the same. I’ve come to believe that one of the reasons for this is that many people have some unconscious limiting beliefs that are holding them back.

I’ve frequently heard coaches and other experts say, “Follow your passion and the money will come.”

It seems too good to be true, doesn’t it?

I know many small business owners who have a passion for what they do, but they’re still struggling when it comes to money.

I think the disconnect comes about because even though we may be following our passion, there are frequently limiting beliefs that get in the way, and hold us back from the prosperity and abundance we desire.

I’m going through this process right now.

How to Add Screening Questions to Facebook Groups

Facebook group screening questions
Facebook Groups are a great way for small business owners to build community with prospects and clients. But sometimes, group members take advantage of the exposure and use this platform as a way to spam other members, instead of adhering to a group’s rules and providing value.

One way you can protect your group’s integrity is to require prospective members to answer some pre-screening questions.

You can ask them things like: Why do you want a member of this group? Or what do you hope to get out of this group?

You can also use the questions to offer a freebie in exchange for the group member’s email address.

In the following video tutorial, I show you how to add screening questions to your Facebook group.
