Joan Pounds (a.k.a. softwareg1rl) has been involved with business process management, hardware and software engineering for over 2 decades. She has been involved with manufacturing, accounting, petroleum and technology firms ranging from Fortune 500 to start up firms during her career. She is a lifelong learner, certified trainer and holds 3 college degrees in petroleum production and management information systems as well as earning countless certificates.

What I do
I teach people how to make a profit from their passions. I use a webpage/blog as the vehicle to create many avenues of marketing. I show people how to use new technologies to create multiple streams of income while working with their passions.
I use both online and offline tools to assist me in teaching. I do live in-person events, teleseminars, video courses, streaming live worldwide events as well as eCourses via e-mail. I just released a free 7-Day Blogging eCourse that you can register for on the Upcoming Classes tab. I show my students how to create cash flow in a sustainable business with a very small initial investment. I am able to help my students find a lot of legal and free software tools to get started with initially.
If you’re interested in creating your website to be a money making machine rather than just a billboard seen by unknown passers-by, then you’ve come to the right place! My welcome gift to you will be delivered once you give me your name and e-mail. I will also notify you of our upcoming teleseminars, guest speakers, a membership area, and special events in the very near future!
Why I Do It
Monetization Magic came about as a result of seeing so many web pages online that were not making their owners money. Having a web presence is great; however, it needs to serve a purpose and earn it’s keep so to speak! Machines do exactly what they are told to do and are great for performing repetitive, mind numbing tasks while people are more suited to creative, relationship building activities with which machines have a difficult time generating the same type of connection. The articles posted here will build on that foundation to give you ideas on how to further enhance your business quickly and easily. We’ll form a partnership at the start and begin at the beginner’s level and gradually move to more specific topics.
I was recently asked why I do what I do. What is it that causes me to get out of bed in the morning? Other than a couple of hungry kitties and an overinsistent bladder, I get up in the morning because I believe that the small and medium business owners are the ones who will assist America in getting out of the financial mess that our country is currently in. The financial and economic landscape has changed. Trading hours for money is no longer the answer! There simply aren’t enough hours in the day! I believe that small and medium business owners must leverage their time by working smarter not harder and that by doing so they will be able to reach more people to get their message out and help more people solve their problems. When we do that, we will be able to grow as a nation again.
There are many small and medium businesses that simply are not utilizing all their resources. It’s not their fault. They are either overlooking or not aware that the resources even exist! Upon sitting down with a business owner for 15 minutes, I can show them 5-10 new and additional forms of income that can be flowing into their business with little effort on their part. After completing a mind map of what I see for the business’ income sources, I’m often told that the volume of income and number of income streams is overwhelming to comprehend. The beauty of that is it gives us a starting point to discuss the opportunities that are available and the ability to create a plan of action to achieve the opportunities that speak to you.
