“Are you ready to make your creative work more lucrative, stable, and sustainable in the long-term? Join April Bowles-Olin for an introduction to digital products and how they can enhance your creative business. This course will show you how to produce and position viable products for generating multiple revenue streams and passive income. RSVP right here to watch it live and get access to the workbook for FREE. This post is part of the Create Digital Products blog tour.”


Let’s start with a little background. I met April Bowles-Olin when I attended her first course at CreativeLive, Build a Successful Creative Blog. I impulsively signed up because my blog was floundering and I needed some help. I also love a challenge, and being in the Front Row was far outside my comfort zone. Thank goodness I had no idea what a Super Star Ms. Bowles is or I would have been even more nervous than I already was. If you watch the course, which I highly recommend to all bloggers and wanna-be bloggers, you will learn LOTS of pro tips and also see me looking like I am going to be sick.

That course literally changed my life as I have written about a few times. If you follow my blog then you already know this. If you don’t follow my blog, you really should. There’s a box at the end of this post that you should totally check out.


Not only did I up my blogging game, but I met a great group of creatives, in person and over the interwebs, and formed a relationship with April. I began following April’s awesome blog, Blacksburg Belle and she has taught me a ton about running a successful creative business.

Here is My Goal!

I joined April & Mayi’s League of Supers, an amazing source of support, advice, sympathy, empathy and just plain love and friendship. I’ve also participated in a couple of April’s blog tours, so of course I jumped at the chance to be a part of this one too.

The guidelines set by April were simple –

 Pick one of the following topics to blog about:

a) What you’d love to learn from my upcoming course, Create Digital Products that Sell While You Sleep

b) The biggest questions you have when it comes to selling digital or information products

c) Your best-selling digital product and why you think it’s the most successful (if you already sell digital or information products)

d) Why you want to learn how to create and sell digital products

e) The biggest issues you’ve had with trying to sell digital products

Alright well, I want to learn everything and I have a million questions. Because my jewelry is labor intensive, I’d love a product that was easily reproducible. I don’t have any digital products yet, so those don’t apply.




Sorry April, but I decided to go off topic a bit and talk about my most important question:

Why Learn About Digital Products From April Bowles-Olin

There is certainly no shortage of passive income “experts”. Just Google it, you will get a thousand suggestions. So why would I choose April’s course over all the others? Well, for starters she is an amazing teacher. She is a diligent hard worker who is going to leave no stone unturned to gather every bit of relevent information on the subject of passive income. She is realistic. She’s not promising any get rich quick schemes. She believes in living your passion. This course is going to teach us how to make money doing what we truly love. Her workbooks are flipping fantastic. She has put in a ton of effort to make this a comprehensive course in creating digital products, from the nuts and bolts of making a digital product that suits your business to the more ethereal and harder to grasp concepts of targeting a market and product positioning. I want to know not just how to start but to successfully sustain a passive income offering, and I trust April to teach me.

About to go on the air, watching myself on TV. Surreal.


If you are interested in launching a successful digital product, my advice to you is that you purchase this amazing course. Yes, you can watch for free during the live broadcast, and it will be super cool, but if you upgrade to any time access for $49 ($49!!!) not only will you be able to watch & rewatch the course, but you will score some incredible bonuses that only come with purchase.

Please RSVP and then watch November 10-11 to be blown away by the magic that is April Bowles-Olin. Also, I will be in the front row and now that I’m used to it, I don’t look so ill anymore. Although, I do have RBF (look it up) and I just can’t help that.
