The PLR on your computer is worthless, unless…

Hey awesome smart one. It’s Nicole Dean from

None of the PLR in the world will grow your business sitting on your computer.

You’ve got to actually USE it, right? Otherwise, it’s sadly just a waste of money.

My bestie, Kelly McCausey, is willing to help you do just that. 🙂 Use it.

She’s a helluva coach. I should know. She’s my partner at Beachpreneurs and she was my first mentor, too!

One of Kelly’s favorite things to offer is her “Use Your PLR” Coaching program.

She actually gets on screenshare with you, looks through your PLR files and helps you develop a PLAN together.

It’s hugely worth it at her regular price, but right now she has a $200 off special running for Black Friday weekend.

I highly highly recommend that you check it out here:

The discount is on the page.

Speaking of using your PLR, at Coach Glue, we have a new package of 60 blog posts covering all areas of business and there’s a $10 off coupon on the page for this weekend only.

You can check that out here:

Buy it, and load the files into your blog drafts. Then the next time you don’t know what to write about just choose one and dig in. Easy peasy. 🙂

I know it’s the holidays and you’re super busy, so that’s it for today, but I’ll be back with more soon.

Hugs and high fives,
Nicole Dean

p.s. If you’re a female business owner and you don’t know what
you want for Christmas yet, may I suggest this?

We are also looking for sponsors.

PS again. YOU are awesome. #truth

Two things that I’m excited about….

Hey awesome smart one. It’s Nicole Dean from

I have two cool things to tell you about today.

First, I just created a new video training with my friend Melissa
Ingold over at

“10 Quick & Easy Ways to Add Passive Income Streams into your
Business with Affiliate Marketing”

It’s a series of short videos where we explain a method of adding
affiliate marketing into your business in each one. 🙂

And, through Tuesday, it is $70 off with the coupon below.

Check it out here:

Use Coupon Code: 70
Discount: $70 off
Expires Tuesday the 14th of November

Grab a spot if you would love to add some more income to your
business without having to create more products of your own.

The second thing that I’m super excited about is that we just
announced another speaker that will be at the Ladies Only Beach Camp
Event in Daytona Beach in April.

It’s KIM COLES! She’ll be teaching about how to communicate with
story and humor. It’ll be great! I’m a bit giddy about this to be
totally honest.

So, if you’re a woman and you want to spend a few days at the beach,
learning and growing in so many ways, join us:

If you don’t know who Kim is, here’s a little bio:

Actress, comedienne, author, playwright and TV personality KIM COLES
is truly a renaissance woman.

Best known for her five-season turn as the unforgettable “Synclaire”
on FOX’s ground-breaking comedy series, Living Single. KIM COLES has
starred in numerous hit television programs including Frasier, In
Living Color, One on One just to name a few.

KIM COLES is also an author who wrote 2 best-selling books, “I’m Free
But it Will Cost You: The Single Life According to Kim Coles.” And “The
Gratitude Journal”.

Me, Kelly McCausey, Michele Scism, Tracy Roberts, Susanne Myers, and
now Kim Coles? Plus we’ll be announcing one more speaker soon.

Grab your spot here:

Warmly and with big hugs,

P.S. I loved the opportunity to share about my trip to Italy in this
guest post. “Sans Laptop, Sans Gluten, Sans Worries: Italy with
Nicole Dean”

PS again. YOU are awesome. #truth

[For the ladies] Magic + Memories + Money will be happening.

Hey awesome smart one. It’s Nicole Dean from

The people who know me the best know that there are a few things
that I love more than anything.

1. My people. This includes my family and my amazing friends.

2. Adventure. I’m not a thrill seeker, but I love doing
NEW things. Even if it’s just trying a new Ethiopian restaurant
or finding a waterfall to swim in.

3. Fresh air. I can’t get enough fresh air. Seriously. I hate
being cooped up inside. Fresh air is my life. Every hotel that
I book, the first question I ask is “Is there a room with a balcony?” 🙂

So when designing a conference with my friend, Kelly McCausey, I
said “I want super smart stuff to happen, a safe space for attendees
to ask questions and get help. AND… I want lots of open time
so the attendees will have the opportunity to actually GO walk
the beach, find a little sushi restaurant, or go for a swim.
I’m not going to ask them to fly to the beach and then sit in
a meeting room all day. It’s about the smarts and the experience, too.”

And that’s exactly what we’ve created. By design. 🙂

That said, I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to invite all of the ladies reading this
to join me at the beach for our upcoming Beach Camp in Daytona.

The price on tickets will be going up Monday.

If you’re craving a sisterhood of smart, savvy businesswomen,
then grab your ticket today.

Get details and buy ticket here: (Price goes up Monday.)

Then come and mark “Going” on our Facebook event.

We’ve just started to actually promote the event and we’re still
lining up speakers. But I’m not worried a bit because every single
time we do this (and this is #5) -> magic + memories + money happens.

Who this is for: All women entrepreneurs (beginner through advanced)
who have a warm heart and a spirit of wanting to grow an awesome,
profitable business.

There is a sweet little lighthouse near the hotel that is fun to
climb. And a swing set there under the trees with a perfect breeze.
Yes. I’m planning on revisiting both. 🙂

I hope to see you there.

Warmly and with big hugs,

P.S. If you’d like to see some of my latest little adventures, you can

This is a great way to grow your list and make sales at the same time.

Hey awesome. It’s Nicole from

For over a year, I have been looking for a tool that could help me to create simple quizzes that also had the capability to…  

  • Integrate with my autoresponder (to put the people into my followups)
  • Give detailed responses based on the answers that were entered (not just a “you’re Rachel” on a Friend’s quiz)
  • Be solid, easy to use, and flexible

I found a LOT of them and I tested out quite a few BUT… most didn’t do what I wanted and they all had a recurring cost between $97/month and $1500/year. I know it would have been worth it, but I didn’t want to pay that much for a tool that didn’t do what I wanted.

Why do I want this? Because quizzes work.

  • They are fun for users to do.
  • They are a great way to find out what your people want and need from you and give them resources to help fast.
  • They are an easy way to educate your people about what you do and what they should buy first.
  • When done right, they can be as effective as a one-on-one consultation but with no time on your part. 🙂

On the money side of things, they also turn cold leads and people who are on the fence into customers – FAST. 

And, they are a great way to dabble with Facebook ads to get more traffic too.

My friend, David Perdew, just revamped the quiz tool that he’s using to grow his business and he’s making it available for a ONE-TIME purchase for a very limited time.

This. Is. Gold.

Check it out asap and grab your copy while the price is low here.

It doesn’t matter what niche you’re in. Quizzes work.

I’ve spent hundreds of dollars on skin care after taking this quiz.  (It’s using a different tool, but it’s the same concept.)
I’ve taken yoga quizzes (and spent money).
I’ve taken finance quizzes and parenting quizzes and travel quizzes.

As a business owner, there really isn’t a more valuable way to work people through the beginning of a funnel.

When done right, these quizzes can attract the right people, get valuable information from them, and help them to buy the right products from you.

So, what’re you waiting for? A one-time payment? DONE!

Check it out asap and grab it while the price is low here.

Have an amazing week!

Warmly and with big hugs,

Offer this to your clients? (Or save on book marketing yourself.)

Hey awesome smart one. It’s Nicole Dean from

If you’re like most people in this business, you either have written or plan to write a
book. 🙂 It’s just what we do!

You’re maybe just a little unsure about how to get people to actually FIND and BUY your book?

Or you want to help your clients to market their books better?

YOU CAN with my friend, Melissa’s, newest kit which includes a ton of book marketing
templates so that you’re not starting from scratch.

PLUS there’s a 50% off coupon so that you can save if you want to grab it.

Just go here and sign up already. It’s awesome. 🙂

3 ways to join me at the beach.

Hi. This is Nicole Dean from and I hope you’re having a great day so far. 🙂

Before I get into my beach message, I had an interesting
thing happen to me today. If you’re curious, you can read about that here:

The response to that post really rejuvenated my desire to put time into
growing the Awesomization Nation.

Small and simple acts of awesome have such far-reaching impact when we
do them. It is really humbling to know the power we have to make the world
a better place when you think about it.

But that’s not why I’m writing today.

As you may remember, I host events at the beach with my smart friend,
Kelly McCausey under our Beachpreneurs brand.

Now these are for ladies only at this time (although we are brainstorming
some exciting ideas to include the guys in other ways because we love them!)

Back last year, we had a hiccup with our hotel where we hosted the 2nd
Beach Camp and where we were about to host the 3rd. And by hiccup let’s
just say that it was bad. And that I lost a lot of sleep over how they
handled things.

So, before Beach Camp 3 this month, I told Kelly “NEVER again”.

I told her that I LOVE LOVE LOVE doing the Beach house retreats and the
Beach cabins but that I wasn’t going to ever do another hotel event again.

And then we held our event … and magic happened. Again. DOH!

So, I backtracked.

“Kelly, this really is impactful. So much awesome happened. Really.
I guess IF we can get a different hotel, and IF they give us an amazing
deal and IF … ”   (There were a lot of IF’s).

Well, we’re doing it. Again. And, I am so FREAKING excited!

So, if you’ve been drooling over our fun at the beach on Facebook, and
you are craving a sisterhood of smart, savvy businesswomen, then here
are the three options to check out.

1. THE BEACH HOUSE in Pensacola Beach, FL, October 10-13, 2016

Who this is for: Smart businesswomen (who have had some success –
possibly growing an audience, a client base, or getting massive exposure)
who want to have intimate time with other successful business women.
We sleep in the same house. We cook together. We mastermind. We laugh
and sometimes we cry. And it’s ALL in the name of growth.

2. THE BEACH CAMP in Daytona Beach, Florida, April 21-23, 2017

Who this is for: All women entrepreneurs (beginner through advanced)
who have a warm heart and a spirit of wanting to grow.

3. THE BEACH CABIN. Myrtle Beach. June 2016.

I mentioned a third option. We are also hosting a Beach CABIN in June
at Myrtle Beach. The beach cabin is where Kelly and I, and one Virtual
Assistant, are getting together with a maximum of THREE attendees.

The goal? TO GET SOMETHING DONE. And the Virtual Assistant is there to help.

If YOU want to create a product, we’ll get it done that weekend.
If YOU want to work on your funnels, done.
If YOU want to ramp up your affiliate program, easy.

The price on this isn’t cheap, but it’s not crazy expensive either. (We’re talking
the $3k range.) So, if you’re interested, contact Kelly and she’ll chat with you about
it. No hard sell. We want you if it’s right for you. If not, then that’s ok, too.
We’ll totally stay friends. 🙂

So, if the Beach Cabin is interesting to you, then holler at Kelly here:

We’ll make it happen.

I hope this is helpful.

Warmly and with big hugs,

A special invite for the ladies only. (Sorry Guys!)

Hey awesome. It’s Nicole Dean from

This one is for the Gals.

If you haven’t heard yet, I’m part of something really
special that’s transforming businesses and changing
lives. And I don’t say that lightly. 🙂

Beachpreneurs has been quietly rocking and rolling for the last
few years, helping women just like you make BOLD BREAKTHROUGHS
at the Beach (since 2013).

We have an exciting year ahead of us with more in-person
opportunities to work on your business with ME and my business
partner, Kelly McCausey, than ever before.

That brings me to the two awesome, yet time-sensitive things
I want to talk about today.

1. BEACH HOUSE: You, Me, and Up to 14 other Smart Female Entrepreneurs in ONE Big Beach House!

Our Beach House Retreats are life changing and our October 2016
one will be no different.

Believe it or not we’ve already filled half the house.  🙂

We set up a payment plan that makes it more managable to fit
the event into your budget – and that’s been a big hit.

So, if you’re available October 10-13th and want
to come to next fall’s retreat, please fill out the application here ASAP.

We’ll get back to you quickly, I promise! 🙂

2. HOTEL FUN: You, Me, and an Awesome Weekend at Beach Camp!

Don’t panic! There’s not really any camping involved.

In April 2016 we’re hosting our third Beach Camp, and this
one will once again be in Daytona Beach!

Ticket prices will be going up to $247 after the first
of the year but right now you can still sign up for
only $97.

Beach Camp is a unique event.  It’s not a typical
‘sit and listen’ passively conference.  We put a high
value on engagement and participation.  You’ll love it!

If you have any questions, give me a shout 🙂

Warmly and with Big Hugs,
Nicole Dean
