Solar Eclipse treats + The sun sets on these goodies soon!

Published about 1 month ago • 22 min read

Hi Reader,

Happy Sunday! How has your weekend been? It's been a gorgeous couple of days - clear and sunny, but still cold and crisp, with winter's icy grasp still holding on for dear life.

Tomorrow, my son has the day off as the solar eclipse is happening around the time he gets off of school, so the Toronto School Board decided to switch up the Professional Activity Days and move it to tomorrow instead. They wanted to ensure kids weren't leaving the school and staring up at the sun.

I bought some Solar Eclipse glasses and am hoping we are treated to something special. Of course, we are not directly in the path of the eclipse but taking a trip to Hamilton, or worse, Niagara Falls, is a little too extreme for us.

Did you know Niagara Falls has declared a State of Emergency due to the millions of people that are flooding in to witness the eclipse. (Shudder.) The idea of having to be plunged into darkness with millions of strangers? No thank you.

Even though the weather has been clear the last couple of days, the forecast is supposed to be overcast for tomorrow. Well, of course it is. 🤣

Not sure if it will totally ruin our plans but we're still crossing our fingers and going to venture out anyway in hopes we'll see something interesting.

What about you? If you're somewhere within the path of the eclipse (United States, Mexico, Canada) do you have plans? Write me, I'd love to hear from you. 💗


This is your last chance to pick up my brand new "Spring Bunnies With Teacups" collection containing 30 images of adorable bunnies nestled in the prettiest little teacups.

This pack is 50% larger than the collections I normally do (20 pieces) and I've also featured them at the lowest price I've ever offered any of my sets for, so grab them while you can as the price will go up when my next newsletter comes out.

These images are perfect for all your Springtime festivities. We're talking not just Easter, but also Spring soirées, garden galas along with children's birthdays, baby showers, tea parties, bridal showers and of course, Mother's Day!

You can grab this supersized pack for the super ridiculously discounted price of only $5! (Reg $27) That's less than the price of a not-so-fancy coffee for some super sweet images.

If you've been agonizing over whether or not moving to Thrivecart is right for you or already own it but just haven't figured out how to get the platform up and running, Dama Jue is holding a live info session + ask-me-anything Q&A on Wednesday, April 10th at 12 pm EST.

The burning question: Is now the right time to Move to Thrivecart?

Dama gets asked this question a LOT - and when she got this question from three different long time online biz friends whose group programs had brought in $100k to nearly a million dollars each she knew it was high time to host this masterclass again.

They were on Kajabi or Kartra and were curious if they should move to Thrivecart or not... and it got her thinking - if they wanted to know, maybe you did too?

If you are...

· Sick of Teachable + Podia raising their rates AGAIN yet still having terrible sales page, bump, upsell and affiliate program capabilities

· Totally over the product/course # limitations / monthly cost of Kajabi, Karta, or SamCart

· Plain fed up by ClickFunnels changing their entire platform and kinda leaving you stuck holding the bag

· Not in love with your Wordpress or solution that sounded super promising but ended up lacking what you needed

Then you should come to the live info session!

If you've ever wanted to know if switching your existing products, funnels, courses, and/or affiliate program to Thrivecart is right for you, but not quite curious enough to book one of my 60-min strategy sessions for $397 😅 then you definitely should come join her on Wednesday!

She's going to do an overview of what Thrivecart is capable of, when to know if it's the right time to migrate, how long migrating to Thrivecart actually takes, what you need to do it right, some amazing features that you will love, plus (the burning question most Thrivecart users want to know) her honest thoughts on the future of Thrivecart!

She's going to cover all that in about 20 minutes, and then after that she's taking ALL the questions about Thrivecart from those who join live - what can it do, how does it handle this or that, etc.

If Thrivecart isn't right for you, she'll tell you so.

This live info session + Q&A is Wednesday, April 10th at 12pm Eastern (that's 9am Pacific, 5pm British)

She'll be going live on Zoom - and yes, a replay will be available if you've registered for the event

Sign up to ask all your burning questions with the Queen of Thrivecart herself!

BONUS - If you decide you'd like to purchase Thrivecart through my link, I'll gift you either two 4o minute one-on-one sessions with me or two Voxer Days. You can ask me anything biz related. I can help you with any newsletter-related questions you have, we can figure out any ideas you have for products, offers, courses. And don't forget I'm an award-winning writer/television producer by trade so I can also have a peek at any videos or messaging you have.

If you love the images I create, I can also show you my process for making images like the ones found in my paper packs so you can create beautiful, commercial free images that you can use and sell however you please.

If you're always looking to score a fantastic deal, have you met my friend Melanie who runs Club Pin?

Her brand new content for April has just been released and it's no joke!

This month we have a brand new bonus training thrown in --- in addition to TWO Canva PLR Templates.
And she also has included a brand new bonus training not available anywhere else just yet. Yes! This is a special little bonus to ONLY Club Pin Members.

For April you'll receive:

Product Research Organization Training.

It's not really a training on keyword research,.....more an example of a good few key words Mel found, and how to combine them in your product listing to up your searchability results.

And there's a system to organize all that research and "rabbit hole research," because Mel's a systems gal. This includes those key word gold mines you find when looking for something else.

This also includes how to organize and label all your best seller inspiration photos to not only speed up your product creation process, but to help you take that up-front work you did and use it to create numerous products.

Save time. Up your creation. Win Win. Includes Google sheet and Canva template so you'll have your own organizational system.

This month's Club Pin products were created from just some of the things she found, so it's a great little implementation training. She shows you what she found, how she organized it and then turned it into two different products that you could just run wild with and use to create many others.

This training is ONLY available in her membership PLUS you'll also receive the two created PLR Canva Templates.

In the next few weeks, the training will be sold on it's own, but not with the two additional canva products included. Those will be an additional cost.

Join now and you'll also receive all of her March goodies as well which include:

  • PLR Product - Retirement Journal
  • PLR Product - Retirement Bucket List
  • Pinterest Pins
  • Square Mockups / Sales Images
  • Customization Walk Through Video (I won't leave you hanging...promise!)

Katherine's newest kit in her Limitless Design Kits Monthly Membership has just arrived.

This month's theme is a super cool, wildly evergreen Boho Cactus Design Kit.

Whether you're designing boho-themed invitations, crafting desert-inspired wall art, or simply want to add a touch of Southwest flair to your designs, this month's Boho Cactus design kit has you covered. Having lived in Southern Arizona off and on again for over 30 years, Katherine can attest to the allure of our lifestyle and majestic landscapes.

With all the latest concerns over copyright, usage rights, and outsourcing art from questionable sources, a few members have asked if she makes the graphics in her kits. The answer is YES, she personally illustrates/draws/paints the graphics.

All of her personal hand-drawn or painted illustrations and high-resolution elements can be used to create PLR, digital products, physical products, and TEMPLATES (to name a few) which is MUCH MORE than any typical commercial use license.

Along with the individual elements, she's also included a few different types of graphics to help you create scenes.

These design kits are only available for one month inside the membership so you have until the 14th to pick these up. Katherine will then be offering them for sale at the current regular price of $97.

You'll automatically receive $482 worth of bonuses that come with MRR rights, meaning you can turn these kits around and not only sell them commercially, but as PLR without restrictions!

MRR or master resell rights means you can sell these items commercially to others who can also sell them commercially. Normally, with PLR, you can sell them to others for personal use only.

This means you can use these products to create your very own PLR. It's also perfect if you've been wanting to get into a bundle but don't have a creative bone in your body and aren't sure what you would be able to offer with PLR rights - now you'll be able to thanks to Katherine's gorgeous resources.

Best of all, you can use these elements without fear of infringing on someone's license, which is much more generous than a standard commercial use license, and use them for to create PLR digital products, physical products, and templates (to name a few) - and yes, even stickers!

Check out everything you get on the sales page. This kit will be available at the discounted price of $27 until tonight - March 14th.

BONUS - If you purchase Katherine's kit choose a one-time regular bonus from my bonus page.


Check out my bonus page here. My bonuses do not have an expiry. I have been working on updating my bonus page (December 5th, 2023) so look forward to that soon.

Update regarding bonuses

I've been having a few issues lately around receiving commissions so if you want to ensure that you buy through my links and receive your bonuses, please make sure to make your purchases on a desktop.

Apple does not allow for link tracking and there is a good chance that I will not get credited for the sale. It's also a good policy to click my link and purchase right away because if you decide to do so later, and you're browsing other sites, or checking out other emails, you may accidentally click on someone else's offer unknowingly so they'll get credit for a sale and if you don't know who that person is, they might not have a bonus for you.

For Thrivecart purchases: Make sure you see my name laramai at the bottom of the checkout page under affiliate as shown in the photo below. As there are many templates used in Thrivecart, the field might look different than the photo below but the name will appear somewhere at the very bottom of the page underneath the cart.

For Warrior+ purchases: Make sure you see my name "laramai" at the bottom of the checkout page where it says powered by Warrior Plus


If you're interested in learning how I use totally free and/or cheap tools to create AI generated images like the ones you see in the book above as well as my the bonuses you've seen lately as well as my newsletter banner photos, click here or the photo above. (Note: clicking this link won't take you anywhere. It just records your interest so I can make sure to notify you if and when this course becomes available - and offer it to you at the lowest price.)

Don't forget I'm still taking a poll to find out if there is interest in learning about how I created my initial tripwire landing page using entirely free tools. Click here if you want to learn more about that training.

Hi Reader,Happy Sunday! It's a gorgeous sunny day today with a cool breeze. Not too hot and not too cold. I'd say just about perfect! The birds are chirping and I have all the windows open in the house for a lovely cross breeze. The only issue is an ice cream truck has been circling our neighborhood with some super annoying, circus-calliope type music which basically hasn't stopped for the last two hours. Not only that, to me it sounds like the music a creepy serial killing clown driving an...

Butterfly Landing Pad ;-) Hi Reader,Happy Friday! How has your week been? I'm super excited to have the nicer weather upon us! As promised, I wanted to tell you more about our visit to Niagara Falls. Usually we don't do touristy stuff but this time, we hit a few spots. The Bird Kingdom was one of them but today I want to tell you about the Butterfly Conservatory - both of which I've always wanted to check out. The latter is located on the grounds of the Niagara Parks School of Horticulture in...

Hi Reader,I'm still recovering from our trip to Niagara Falls. We had an amazing time and it was pretty low key, but for some reason, I haven't been able to get my groove back yet. It's taken more time to recover than the amount of time we were actually away. 🤣We did pack a lot into four days - and some of those days we walked almost 20k steps! That might be close to a record.As I mentioned last time, halfway through our stay, my son said he didn't want to go to the waterpark. A part of me...
