I’ve been helping clients set up their memberships, telesummits, and other events where there is some type of file that needs to be available for those participating and the request is to make sure they can view it online and download it.

The easiest way I can achieve this is to put a View Online button along with a Download button, or drop it in with some text – either way the call to action needs to be there to help guide them on how they can get it.

Portrait of the SJ - Keirsey's Guardian

Famous SJ personalities
Guardians® (SJs) are the cornerstone of society, for they are the temperament given to serving and preserving our most important social institutions. Guardians have natural talent in managing goods and services–from supervision to maintenance and supply — and they use all their skills to keep things running smoothly in their families, communities, schools, churches, hospitals, and businesses.

All Guardians share the following core characteristics:

  • Guardians pride themselves on being dependable, helpful, and hard-working.
  • Guardians make loyal mates, responsible parents, and stabilizing leaders.
  • Guardians tend to be dutiful, cautious, humble, and focused on credentials and traditions.
  • Guardians are concerned citizens who trust authority, join groups, seek security, prize gratitude, and dream of meting out justice.

Guardians can have a lot of fun with their friends, but they are quite serious about their duties and responsibilities. Guardians take pride in being dependable and trustworthy; if there’s a job to be done, they can be counted on to put their shoulder to the wheel. Guardians also believe in law and order, and sometimes worry that respect for authority, even a fundamental sense of right and wrong, is being lost. Perhaps this is why Guardians honor customs and traditions so strongly — they are familiar patterns that help bring stability to our modern, fast-paced world.

Practical and down-to-earth, Guardians believe in following the rules and cooperating with others. They are not very comfortable winging it or blazing new trails; working steadily within the system is the Guardian way, for in the long run loyalty, discipline, and teamwork get the job done right. Guardians are meticulous about schedules and have a sharp eye for proper procedures. They are cautious about change, even though they know that change can be healthy for an institution. Better to go slowly, they say, and look before you leap.

Guardians make up as much as 40 to 45 percent of the population, and a good thing, because they usually end up doing all the indispensable but thankless jobs the rest of the population takes for granted.

Your iPersonic Type: The Determined Realist

Determined Realists like you want to bear responsibility and welcome challenges. You are a stable and reliable person. External contacts are very important to you; you mix well and you are very active. You are an excellent organizer and you are very happy when things are done correctly and punctually; you can quickly react impatiently if others are not as conscientious, orderly and dutiful as you are. You prefer structured work which produces visible results quickly to abstract, long-drawn-out processes. Determined Realists have no problem with routine as long as it serves efficiency. However, you very much dislike unexpected and unpredictable occurrences which mess up your careful plans. Once you have committed yourself to a cause you do this with dedication and you are willing to make considerable sacrifices for it.

Determined Realists do not avoid conflicts and criticism but face up to them and look for solutions. As you have a keen eye for the errors and shortcomings of others and you are often quick at expressing criticism, you sometimes rub people up the wrong way – especially when you lose your temper and jump to conclusions. Due to your marked sense of justice you are quickly willing to correct yourself and never take offense if someone speaks to you frankly. Determined Realists like you are often found in executive positions as you combine commitment, competence and the ability to assert yourself. In your spare time, you also accept responsibility in clubs and other institutions.

As a Determined Realist, you are one of the extroverted personality types. You enjoy working in a team as a colleague or a team leader. Because you have an outgoing nature, you approach others easily and openly; working in solitude by yourself would be punishment for you. You know how to appreciate a harmonic working climate, but the relationship to your colleagues is not as important to you as to some of the other personality types. For you, the task always comes first and your colleagues and/or superiors are second. As long as everybody is working as disciplined and determined as you are, everything is just fine.

However, if you sense that the work is suffering from irrelevant disputes or private matters that have nothing to do with the job, you have no problem expressing your criticism, and making your team toe the line. It would never occur to you to sacrifice a good result in your work on the altar of personal moods, or in favor of a conflict free environment. On the other hand, you are one of the personality types who is best at handling criticism, and swallow negative feedback without brooding or sink into depression. Consequently, you also can hold your ground in professions where the climate is a little rougher and more competition oriented.

You are an excellent organizer, and a genius at planning and maintaining a workflow that is precise and on time. You enjoy dealing with details and facts, developing rules and guidelines, and establishing standards. Here, your natural sense for systematic and love of order prove to be advantageous; as well as your acute aptitude to see the most efficient of all possible approaches. Where your work is concerned, “reliability” is your second name. You have a real problem leaving things to chance, and you hate nothing more than when something unexpected happens, thus throwing your carefully laid plans into chaos without warning. When a project you conceived is implemented without any hiccups and is brought to a good end, this is your greatest joy.

After I took this – found out I’m a ENTJ Profile

Rational Portrait of the Fieldmarshal (ENTJ) – Keirsey’s Fieldmarshal

Of the four aspects of strategic analysis and definition it is the marshaling or situational organizing role that reaches the highest development in the Fieldmarshal. As this kind of role is practiced some contingency organizing is necessary, so that the second suit of the Fieldmarshal’s intellect is devising contingency plans. Structural and functional engineering, though practiced in some degree in the course of organizational operations, tend to be not nearly as well developed and are soon outstripped by the rapidly growing skills in organizing. But it must be said that any kind of strategic exercise tends to bring added strength to engineering as well as organizing skills.

Hardly more than two percent of the total population, Fieldmarshals are bound to lead others, and from an early age they can be observed taking command of groups. In some cases, they simply find themselves in charge of groups, and are mystified as to how this happened. But the reason is that they have a strong natural urge to give structure and direction wherever they are – to harness people in the field and to direct them to achieve distant goals. They resemble Supervisors in their tendency to establish plans for a task, enterprise, or organization, but Fieldmarshals search more for policy and goals than for regulations and procedures.

  They cannot not build organizations, and cannot not push to implement their goals. When in charge of an organization, whether in the military, business, education, or government, Fieldmarshals more than any other type desire (and generally have the ability) to visualize where the organization is going, and they seem able to communicate that vision to others. Their organizational and coordinating skills tends to be highly developed, which means that they are likely to be good at systematizing, ordering priorities, generalizing, summarizing, marshaling evidence, and at demonstrating their ideas. Their ability to organize, however, may be more highly developed than their ability to analyze, and the Fieldmarshal leader may need to turn to an Inventor or Architect to provide this kind of input.

Fieldmarshals will usually rise to positions of responsibility and enjoy being executives. They are tireless in their devotion to their jobs and can easily block out other areas of life for the sake of their work. Superb administrators in any field – medicine, law, business, education, government, the military – Fieldmarshals organize their units into smooth-functioning systems, planning in advance, keeping both short-term and long-range objectives well in mind. For the Fieldmarshal, there must always be a goal-directed reason for doing anything, and people’s feelings usually are not sufficient reason. They prefer decisions to be based on impersonal data, want to work from well thought-out plans, like to use engineered operations – and they expect others to follow suit. They are ever intent on reducing bureaucratic red tape, task redundancy, and aimless confusion in the workplace, and they are willing to dismiss employees who cannot get with the program and increase their efficiency. Although Fieldmarshals are tolerant of established procedures, they can and will abandon any procedure when it can be shown to be ineffective in accomplishing its goal. Fieldmarshals root out and reject ineffectiveness and inefficiency, and are impatient with repetition of error.

Extraverted iNtuitive Thinking Judging
by Joe Butt

Profile: ENTJ
Revision: 3.0
Date of Revision: 27 Feb 2005

“I don’t care to sit by the window on an airplane. If I can’t control it, why look?”

ENTJs have a natural tendency to marshall and direct. This may be expressed with the charm and finesse of a world leader or with the insensitivity of a cult leader. The ENTJ requires little encouragement to make a plan. One ENTJ put it this way… “I make these little plans that really don’t have any importance to anyone else, and then feel compelled to carry them out.” While “compelled” may not describe ENTJs as a group, nevertheless the bent to plan creatively and to make those plans reality is a common theme for NJ types.

ENTJs are often “larger than life” in describing their projects or proposals. This ability may be expressed as salesmanship, story-telling facility or stand-up comedy. In combination with the natural propensity for filibuster, our hero can make it very difficult for the customer to decline.

TRADEMARK: — “I’m really sorry you have to die.” (I realize this is an overstatement. However, most Fs and other gentle souls usually chuckle knowingly at this description.)

ENTJs are decisive. They see what needs to be done, and frequently assign roles to their fellows. Few other types can equal their ability to remain resolute in conflict, sending the valiant (and often leading the charge) into the mouth of hell. When challenged, the ENTJ may by reflex become argumentative. Alternatively (s)he may unleash an icy gaze that serves notice: the ENTJ is not one to be trifled with.

Functional Analysis: Extraverted Thinking

“Unequivocating” expresses the resoluteness of the ENTJ’s dominant function. Clarity of convictions endows these Thinkers with a knack for debate, or wanting knack, a penchant for argument. The light and heat generated by Thinking at the helm can be impressive; perhaps even overwhelming. Experience teaches many ENTJs that restraint may often be the better part of valor, lest one find oneself victorious but alone.

  2. Review your Google Analytics to see what’s working, where traffic is coming from or NOT coming from.
  3. Change your plan as needed.

Ideas on how you can start link building today:

You already know quality content is key. You could be a guest blogger on someone’s website or offer to let someone interview you for their blog.

Whether you are going to be the guest blogger or you are seeking guest bloggers, I’d follow the next few steps to make sure you are acquainted with them and as knowledge as possible before your first exchange.

Blog Post : Interview Style

  • Review their website to find out what they are an expert within.
  • Does this match your goal and your website too?
  • Will this guest blog post be a win-win for both parties involved?
  • Get connected with the website owner or potential guest blogger, especially through LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter
  • Send them a message to introduce yourself and ask them to send you questions (or vice versa… if you’d like to interview them for your website, send them questions you’d like them to answer). I have a great example of someone doing this with me, you can check out the blog post here: Interview a Virtual Assistant: Staci Jansma
  • Once you receive questions – reply back with answers which will create the blog posts. Include your bio and photo too.
  • Create the JV partnership – if you have an affiliate program, you can offer to let them sign up as an affiliate and then they can earn commissions when possible.

Blog Post : Article Directories & Guest Blogger Opportunity

Write a blog post of quality content (of course!) and after you publish it on your blog, have your virtual assistant post it to article directories. This will help create quality backlinks in addition to click-through traffic from the article readers. You could also write a guest blog post for someone’s blog based upon a topic you are an expert in. And of course – link it to your website for the “back link”!

Blog Post: With Video Marketing

Instead of writing it all out – press record and video tape yourself speaking. You could also do this for a guest blog post too if your guest blogger likes to record and post videos.

Blog Post: With Audio / Podcasting

Vary similar to Video Marketing, except no video, just audio. The main concept you want to reach with any of your blog post choices is – make it quality content, share something that will help others understand or even demonstrate how to do something.

One last tip: Don’t spend time worrying about what, how or when – just get started. Start posting today and over time – you will want to check back on your Google Analytics to see what is helping and what isn’t as to what you should continue to do for going forward. Wish you the best!

Daycare Notes for DayCare Providers

When my son was born I adopted a form that we received each day 2 years prior from when our daughter was at daycare all day. I would pick her up after work and review the notes they jotted down of what she did for the day and how she ate, pooped, and slept, etc. I haven had this stored and figured I need to share this with everyone.

If you are reading this post and not in need of it right now, feel free to download the template so you can reference it in the future. If you know of a mommy or daddy to-be that will be sending their baby to daycare then this might be a helpful post just for them.

So… how did you celebrate National {Prince &} Princess Week?

I have known about “National Princess Week” for about 2 weeks. I decided to approach my daughter’s preschool teacher about a week ago and mentioned… that next week is National Princess Week – it’s the first year for it.

Two reasons why this is so important 1. My Princess (my daughter!)


and 2. Julie Andrews Very Fairy Princess books are so cute – my daughter just loves them – especially the pictures – so colorful. My daughter is a princess 24/7 and always let’s her sparkle out. She is adored by all. And I heard that Julie Andrews plus Disney and Target are honoring the special week.

My daughter’s preschool teacher said – let’s celebrate all week with Prince & Princess week… and I can tell you with today being day 4 – the kids are having a blast. My daughter told me by Tuesday – “Mom, this is the best week ever!” And she has been excited about everything. They have been reading the Very Fairy Princess collection of books: The Very Fairy Princess, The Very Fairy Princess Takes the Stage, and The Very Fairy Princess: Here Comes the Flower Girl! (just released on April 17, 2012).

What was neat was the ideas we received from the website, 30 Ways To Celebrate National Princess Week. And since we were making sure that the boys & girls would enjoy this week – we used the Princess Sparkle Award as well as created a Prince Shine Award.

We also decided on Thursday as the big party day. Starting out with a tea party and each comes dressed in their royal attire.

My daughter was beyond ready for her tea party day. She was ready by 7:18am {mom’s alarm clock usual goes off at 7:30am} in her dress asking me to get her zipped up and bow tied.

When we arrived at school, it was soo cute to see each of them dressed up and just having fun. The girls has their princess gowns on, their ballgown shoes and tiaras to match. Boys were wearing ties with nice shirts. One little boy even had a cape with a mask over his eyes – he was Prince Charming.

They made crowns/tiaras for the celebration today and were extremely surprised when Princess Ariel from Glass Slipper Entertainment stopped by for their tea party. Everyone was listening to what Ariel had to say and asked her questions about her dress, her starfish in her hair, as well as where he tail was. Ariel first taught the girls how to curtsy like a princess and taught the boys how to bow. It was darling watching them all do it.

Then Princess Ariel showed everyone how to sit, eat and drink like a Prince or Princess. On the tables were tea pots full of special tea for everyone (Pink Lemonade – my daughter’s favorite and went over very well!). Plus we had frosted animal crackers – they were very yummy as the bowls were soon empty after a few times around the table.

Next Princess Ariel read 2 short stories to everyone. Of course the preschoolers were on their best behavior and listened very well to the stories of The Little Mermaid (of course!) and What is a Princess?


After Ariel was done reading everyone went for a quick potty break and came back to get their picture with Ariel.

Each kids reaction was different – some went right up to Ariel to pose, others were still a bit shocked or overwhelmed, but by the time we got done… each preschooler had their picture with Ariel as well as some of the brothers/sisters that stopped by for the party.


As you know with my business, I haven’t personally shared a lot about my kiddos online – because I do like to keep my personal life to family and friends – but this day was a sure hit and was so much fun – that I have to let you know what took place.

Look forward to hearing what you did for Princess week. Feel free to stop by and join the National Princess Week Event on Facebook. If you have ideas for Princess week next year, drop a comment – would love to hear what you are thinking.

Keep Moving Forward and be sure to Let Your SPARKLE Out {when you can}!

Stay Organized: Daycare Day Sheet

Here is another resource that I created to help my husband and I communicate with our daycare provider. We would record what needed to be taken care of that day on the left side and the provider would fill out the right side for us. It helped a lot – especially when one parent would pick up and the other would drop off and of course, your schedules are hectic.
