Sure, it costs a bit to fly to Cape Town, South Africa but once you get there? The exchange rate is ever in your favor. Today, South African Sarah tells us about boutique hostels for $15 a night, breakfast for $1.25 (!!!) and wine tasting for $2 per winery. I have never been so tempted! (more…)
Where can you meet a nice guy these days? If you’re Ali Garland, you meet your husband on Twitter! Today, Ali talks about Skype before webcams, saying ‘I love you’ before you meet in person, how to meet ‘strangers from the internet’ for a romantic week in Prague.
How was your week, guys? I popped up to Calgary for three days of fun, intense work with two of my favorite people. I snuck in a visit the the Calgary Tower and stood on those terrifying glass floors 626 feet above the street. Gross/awesome.
Stuff from some of my lovely sponsors
Many of us what to shop ethically but it can be weirdly hard. Stores like Marshalls and TJ Maxx mix the ethical brands in with the sweatshop stuff … and then what? Do we stand in the middle of the aisle, feverishly googling? MadeFAIR makes it easy. Everything they carry is both gorgeous and ethical! Look at this vegan candle! And this pretty skirt!
For the first time since November, I’m taking Secret Weapon clients! Would you like to book a session?
Maria says: “I’m an expert marketer. I thought my online space was working pretty well for me, but wow – Sarah’s recommendations helped me set-up a well-oiled machine to attract more traffic, revenue and fans. I love that she packages everything up in lists of Quick Fixes vs. Longer Term Efforts. She makes it super easy to knock out her suggestions and I’ve already made more progress in the last three weeks than I did in two years of trying to figure this out in my own head. If you want to stop the overwhelm and angst of growing your audience, just do everything Sarah says. Seriously!”
Ahhh, who doesn’t daydream of laying on a tropical beach? You’ve got a cocktail in hand, hot guy in tow, a cool ocean breeze, and cerulean ocean waters as far as the eye can see? Of course, when we picture this we dream of far off places in the south Pacific. Less often imagined, however, is the stunning island nation of the Bahamas just 100 miles off the coast of Florida.
