After so much “talk” about getting my first self-funded issue of Creatives’ Cupboard using the myNote product line (from my Crystal Ink Creative business) is now printed and in hand. The first print run is 100 books, 50 of which will be sold at PICA in Edmonton this next week (May 7 -10, 2014). For those in Edmonton this is your chance to grab one of the first issues! Who knows, maybe they will be considered collectors items one day!
For everyone who registers for my upcoming workshop hosting Ilise Benun, Marketing Mentor, this week – they will receive one of these coveted issues along with the myDay planner. If your schedule opens up this Thursday, I promise you it will be money and most importantly TIME worth spent. Do your business a favour and invest in it, in you.

I have so many people to thank for being part of my vision over the last few years. Now the real work begins. This issue is completely self-funded, no sponsorship or advertising revenue. All sales support the making of the myNote for you. For anyone who had the opportunity to receive one of these books over the last two years at the HOWLive Conference, you know the value of what kind of unique publication this is. Spread the word and be part of the beginning. There will only be a total of 300 books of Issue No. 1 – so don’t miss out.
