  • Angie Newton

    Excellent interview ladies! I really enjoyed it and look forward to getting Connie’s book here in the near future.

    As for 1shoppingcart and setting up an affiliate program, do you as the biz owner do the 1099’s or is it automatically done via 1shoppingcart? This question has been a thorn in my side and I’m getting ready to start selling a report that my JV partner and I are writing and need to set up an affiliate program. Any tips would be appreciated.

    Connie will you be at NAMS in Jan.? Would love to meet you there!

    • Nicole

      With 1ShoppingCart, yes. You do.

      If you opt to go with Clickbank, they handle all of that for you. But, you pay for the convenience out of their fees.

      Shopping cart questions are one of the biggest things people ask me about. Wish there was a perfect solution…

      Hope that helps!

  • Mark Mason

    This is awesome! I am so happy to see the success cast feed back on the air. Cannot wait to hear what Connie has to say. As for that picture — that is quite a motley crew you have assembled there.


  • Carolyn

    OMG! Thank you Nicole! The interview was awesome! I heard my story in Connie’s words – especially the writing part. I too had to make myself write and gave myself a 45-Day writing challenge. I am now on Day 122! Nicole, you totally rock! Thanks again and keep the great stuff coming!


  • Rhonda

    This was some inspiring information and motivating as well! BTW, I really hate going back and reading my old articles. (At the time I didn’t think they were that bad. lol)

    Nicole, I have to say, you have the sweetest sounding voice and you seem like a natural at interviews…you asked some awesome questions too!

    • Nicole

      πŸ˜€ Thank you!!!

      Be sure to check out past episodes. There are some really good ones in there. I’m very fortunate to be blessed with smart friends.

  • Kaye Swain - SandwichINK for the Sandwich Generation

    Hi Nicole, Thanks for another interesting interview. I’m really looking forward to listening. I just heard her speak on an older podcast I found and really enjoyed it so your timing is awesome! πŸ™‚ I really appreciate all your podcasts. I keep my iPod with me at all times as I shuttle grandkids, elderly parents, etc. here and there and get a great education when I can’t be working at the computer. πŸ™‚

    • Nicole

      That’s the beauty of podcasts. They’re portable. πŸ™‚

      Be sure you’ve got me in your iTunes so you don’t miss any episodes.

      Thank you for commenting!!!

  • Kaye Swain - SandwichINK for the Sandwich Generation

    Hmmm, not sure what I did wrong – probably typed it and my auto type added in more?? Sorry for the Twitter error – it’s actually @SandwichINK πŸ™‚

    PS – YUP – As I typed it again, it auto filled it! Glad it’s that and not a “boomer mind moment.” Then again, maybe my computer is having a “computer mind moment” πŸ™‚

  • Savvy Subcontracting

    You don’t know how long I’ve been waiting for another one of these awesome recordings. Thank you.

  • Heidi

    Thanks for a great interview. It was great to hear how Connie got started and what she still does today. I was hoping to get a little insight into how to get huge profits from a tiny list, but I guess I’m going to have to buy the book for that info.

  • Loretta

    Such powerful good stuff in this episode from both of you lovely ladies.

    I think my favorite quote here has to be …. “because having young kids at home I can’t just work whenever I want to, I have to force myself to be creative”

    That is SO true! Even with all four of mine at school during the day I still have to be a little creative with my time on certain days so that I can be productive in working and enjoy spending time with them and their cute little selves.

    I think so often people assume the exact opposite and it annoys the heck out of me. “Oh, you work from home, that must be easy, you can work whenever you want.” Yeah, easy, surrrre. :eyeroll: LOL

  • Helen Raptoplous

    This was a great conversation!! It was like listening to two school buddies shaing great secrets! I think both of you are very generous with your knowledge and with your resources. I truly loved this interview!! I have heard much of this before as a mentor student of Connie’s but I always seem to pick something new up that I can use right away. I am inspired to take action and move forward! Thank you so much for sharing this!!


  • Moira

    Enjoyed this interview with Connie Green – she is such an inspiration to us all – considering what she has had to deal with health wise and still has achieved such amazing success – I have purchased a number of her products and am always looking for more information on her and what I can learn from her journey online. Thank you for sharing this interview.

  • Laurie Neumann

    I really enjoyed listening to this podcast. Connie – you explain things so clearly and simply. Great job to both of you!

  • Joy

    Just found this blog πŸ™‚ Looks a great resource and look forward to getting your updates.

  • Samantha Angel

    I just started listening to the podcasts. This is absolutely great! I love how Connie talks about her struggles in the beginning and not knowing how to do anything but digging in to learn it. Now look at her. Quite the inspiration for me – I hope someday I’m as successful.
