My Partners

I value your trust, so I only recommend people and programs I’ve worked with myself. I may make a small commission if you decide to purchase from some of them (at no extra charge to you), but the fact is I recommend them all highly and would do so whether I made a few bucks from it or not.

Project AK-47 – The charity sponsor for all my blogging, podcasting, and other creative endeavors. Project AK-47 saves child soldiers from lives of violence and slavery, gives them a new chance at a good life, and helps them to become agents of positive, peaceful change in violence-torn regions around the world.

Guest Blogging Certification Crash Course (aff.) – If you’re interested in using blogging to promote your work (which I highly recommend), or if you’re a writer or editor who wants to create the best content possible, this program’s the best. Don’t worry, you don’t need to become a professional writer. You just need to learn the most effective ways to connect with your audience and build loyalty. And I’m proof that it works!

Onstage Success 

The Blog Mechanic (aff.) – Kerry Russell is a WordPress Tech Expert who actually understands online marketing. She can help you with all the technical aspects of building an online business from blog setup, setting up your email funnel, setting up your products and membership sites and ongoing support to secure, maintain and improve your business.

Solopreneur Hotline - Free, practical business coaching and assistance from a 30+ year entrepreneur Angelo Spandrio on such topics as start-up, licensing and permits, pricing, purchasing, billing, accounting, collections, customer service, wire transfers, taxes, inventory, shipping and receiving, importing/exporting, and philanthropy.

Editing by Michelle Russell – Editor extraordinaire, Michelle will make your words shine. Contact her for proofreading, copyediting, developmental editing, and organizing and categorizing your site’s content. Tell her I sent you. I promise, you won’t regret it!

Charity Sponsorships for Creatives with an AudienceMoney-Barry-Solow-FlickrCC

Want to earn additional income that piggybacks perfectly with your current performing, speaking, teaching, or blogging activities?

Who wouldn’t?¬† ;)

If you appear in front of live or online audiences at least 25 times/year and have built your list to at least 500-800 people, there are charities who would love to speak with you!

It’s truly a win-win situation

  • You help make the world a better place by directly impacting lives.
  • You earn money to support your creative work.
  • The charities benefit from the bond and trust that you’ve built with your audience – artists are by far the best way charities can get the word out to people who care and reach their goals.
