Clear Your Mind


This little stinker keeps me on my toes and tests me in ways the girls never have! 
At time's I just need to clear my mind as I'm sure every mom has felt before.
  
So we go outside, Owen plays in the backyard and I play in the Garage. 
 Being able to create helps me to clear my thoughts and have more focus when we go back inside. I find I'm able to accomplish a lot more as well as Owen being more content!
 My passion is being able to help others work from home and have flexibility in their schedules and financial peace, but I also know I can't help others if my mind is boggled.

Being able to do something that I enjoys and is peaceful is so rewarding and helps me to be a better me!

DIY Chalkboard Wall hanging

We made these super cute  interchangeable Chalkboard Wall Hangs at a recent MOPS meeting. There super fun and really easy to make.
Start with a 1/2 in board and cut it into 4x4inch pieces, you'll need 4 for each wall hang.

Then paint them with Chalkboard paint.

Cut a piece of burlap (the kind that's in a roll works best) to about a 2 feet span. Then glue your wood pieces to the burlap.

Cut a piece of twine. It should be about 9 inches long. Tie the ends together into a slip knot.

Cut another piece of burlap down to about a foot long. Fold together and glue the edge.

Then bunch in the middle to form a bow.

Use your cut piece of twine to go around the center. You will want to secure with a small bit of glue.

Your bow is ready :)


Glue the bow to the top center of your finished project and hang around your home. The word options are endless and this can be used for any season... Home, NOEL, Kiss, Love etc.

Your Dreams into Plans

It's amazing to think that 2014 is almost over. Our family has been able to accomplish many things that we had set out to do in this year and yet somethings that we we're not able to conquer .

Do you set New Years Resolutions? Create a list of Goal's at the new year? Plan out every major task you want to try your hands at?

Sometimes the biggest obstacle is ourselves. According to Forbes.com only 8% of American's accomplish their New Years Resolutions.

Why?

Because there isn't a well thought out plan in place to reach their Goals!

Set yourself apart in 2015 and Reach Your Goals in 4 easy steps!
  1. The first step is the easiest... You Must have a Dream or Resolution for yourself. Anything from losing weight to starting a new business.
  2. Your Road Map needs to be SPECIFIC! Set some SMART goals. S=Specific, M=Measurable, A=Attainable, R=Relevant, T=Time Bound. 
  3. Share your Goals with someone to help keep you Accountable. Maybe your spouse, a friend, or business partner. 
  4. WORK! We've all heard it, work works! Make a visual tracker to keep in front of you each day to help remind you of WHY your working towards that goal.

3 S's of Social Media


Social Media is an incredible tool for all of us both personally as well as professionally. There are 3 things that are so simple yet can kill others perception of you. Start implementing these today and you'll have a more value driven following on all of your social media platforms. 
  1. SPELL CHECK: this comes from a self proclaimed terrible speller. But we all have access to spell check/google/dictionaries etc. If you see those red squiggles under a word that indicates to you that it needs attention. Don't forget to re-read what your saying to make sure it all sounds correct as well. 
  2. SHARE QUALITY CONTENT: Have you ever heard of the law of attraction? This law states that what you put out will be drawn in. By sharing value driven content you'll be attracting like minded, positive people. This is particularly important in the business world. 
  3. SHOW YOU CARE: Interact with your friends, ask questions, share positive quotes, birthday well wishes, personal messages. All of these interactions will show others that you truly care about their well being and want the best for them rather than what others can do for you.

Why Do You Work from Home Anyways?



 
Why Do you Work from Home Anyways? 
Do you really earn an income that is worth while?

These are great questions that do need validation for those who have never worked from home successfully. If you do own a business an are able to work from your home you already know the answers. The fact is that 52% of all small businesses are home based. That's HUGE!

1. Time Freedom to set your own schedule  Being able to be the one who waits for my kids when they get off the bus, being able to put them to bed, make cookies with them and be there when they need me is a great feeling. Because I have been able to tailor my schedule around their needs has to be one of the best reason's I work from home.
2. Financial Gain  Helping to contribute to our finances, pay off debt, having extra spending money, pay for our need's in cash are all crucial and often the number 1 reason why people start a home business.
3. Home Businesses Tax Write Off's There are so many tax benefit's! Everything from your internet to a portion of your home owner's insurance.
4. No Commuting I can't imagine driving in bumper to bumper traffic while wanting to be home. I would much rather have my 30 second commute!
5. Being able to spend quality time with Your Family My #1 WHY is my Family! As a little girl I always dreamed of being a mom... By being able to work from the comfort of my home I'm able to be the BEST Mom I can be. 

How about you? Do you work from home? Do you want to? What is the biggest benefit for you? No matter what business your in, if you are earning a pay-check from your home... we're in this together!
