I’m super excited to share my big news: soon you’re going to see my very first paid products. I feel a mix of emotions typing that.
First I’ve got the crazy-ecstatic butterflies in my stomach because this is a LONG time coming. But I also feel a little fear — fear that you’ll resent me for charging for my work. You’re the most important part of Fearless Fresh and your opinion is really important to me. It would kill me if you were angry with me.
But the truth is that I’ve invested so much of myself in Fearless Fresh (and The Culinary Life, back when that was my thing) and I haven’t made a single penny from either of them for the past four or five years.
Have you ever noticed that there’s no ads on my site? Well, it’s true. The small amount of income every month wasn’t worth ruining your experience on the website. And, the ad strategy demanded that I concentrate more on attracting eyeballs than creating useful, high-quality material… which is NOT how I roll. So there has literally been no income related to my websites for a very, very long time.
Now it’s time to change that. Momma’s gotta keep the lights on, right? And seriously, you guys, groceries and email list hosting are EXPENSIVE. No joke.
I know this site is called Fearless Fresh, but come on — I’m human. No one is totally fearless out of the gate. So I’m calling out my own anxieties and putting them on notice. I’m doing exactly what I encourage you to do in the kitchen: I’m doing it anyways.
So…. what’s coming?
Glad you asked! ;) In the coming months you’re going to see two things:
1 — Printed & laminated cooking cheat sheets
If you like the vault guides, I’m ramping up to create new guides that are SUPER specifically designed to help you in the kitchen. You’ll be able to create pan sauces in a blink, chop veggies like a pro, and convert any kitchen math that makes you scratch your head. These cheat sheets will be laminated and 3-hole punched for binders, so they will always within arm’s reach. (And they’re made to withstand any kitchen abuse you can throw at them!)
Also, if you’re not in the Kitchen Ninja Facebook Group, hop in there now because group members will be getting a special discount that won’t be offered anywhere else.
2 — The Perfect Pasta course
I wrote a cheat sheet on how to create perfect pasta and I was surprised at how popular it was. I get so many questions about pasta cooking problems, so I decided to jump into the video training arena and create a course on how to cook the best pasta of your life.
This one will take me some time to produce, so expect to see it later in the year — but high production value is my top priority, so you can bet it’s going to be worth the wait. And since it’s really important for me to get this information into your hands, it will be value-priced so that anyone who wants it can afford to buy it.
Whew, I feel a lot lighter after writing this email. Thanks for listening, thanks for being here, and thanks for being you. <3
