Your Healthy Back To School Guide!

Fall is my FAVORITE Time of Year!

Back to school is always exciting too, I always think of one of my favorite lines from “You’ve Got Mail” (even if I don’t live in New York!)

As summer days give way to fall, it’s back to school with busier schedules that can leave us with less sleep, less relaxing, and less sunshine and vitamin D. It’s no wonder your family can start to move a little slow, and even start getting sick!

Thankfully, I’ve got a simple healthy solution to help everyone stay happy and healthy in this busy time of year! read more

5 Reasons to Start Earning a Side Income

Three years ago, I was a stay at home mom who really needed to find a way to make some extra money from home.

We had two small kids (a 6 month old and a 3 year old) and I just wasn’t ready to go back to work, but each year our budget kept getting tighter and tighter.

Adam and I had to figure out a way to increase our income (even just $500 a month would make a huge difference!) and that’s when we realized the benefit of having a side income. Adam was working a full time job as a chemical engineer (without the ability to take on extra hours or overtime), so the side income would really need to be something I could do. read more

10 Reasons Why You Should Start an Online Business

Three years ago, I was a stay at home mom who really needed to find a way to make some extra money from home. 

Our budget was getting tighter and tighter each year and it was looking clear that I needed to go back to work… but that was the LAST thing I wanted to do!! I had two small girls at home and I didn’t want to give up my time with them.

When Adam and I were first exploring way to generate some additional income, we looked at a lot of different options:

  1. Adam could pick up a second side job (his job didn’t offer overtime).
  2. I could get a Job Outside the Home (I still have my Speech Therapy license)
  3. Start a traditional small business (making and shipping a product – I tried to sew a few dresses to sell).
  4. Start an internet based business.

I ended up pursuing Option 4, the internet based business, and I’m SO glad that I did! It’s made all the difference for myself and my family. read more

How to Choose the Right Company for Your Home Based Business

I never in a million years thought I would ever own a home based business… but when I actually took the time to learn more about how they work and how I could partner with one to earn extra money from home, my whole view changed.

It is important to partner with the right company for you, and I share some tips to help you choose the right company.

How to choose the right company:

Debt Free

One thing that was very important to me was that I wouldn’t go into debt starting my business. I loved that I could run my business debt free from day one and that my company celebrated paying off debt (they have been debt free since 2001). It was a very low start up cost ($99) and I was able to make that back in my first day. read more

Can you be Successful as an Introvert in Network Marketing?

Three years ago… when I first started *thinking* about ways to make some extra money at home… my husband pretty much flat out told me that I wouldn’t be successful because I was an introvert.

I don’t like parties (you will find me most Friday nights in my pj’s, drinking a cup of coffee, and watching a great movie)

I don’t like talking on the phone (I would much rather text to schedule my own hair appointment, haha)

I didn’t have a lot of friends local to me (We had just moved 1,000 miles away from our friends and family) read more

Wholefoods for Busy People

About 10 years ago, Adam and I went through a complete diet change.

We started reading a whole bunch of books talking about wholefoods and getting back to nature – Traditional Foods…. and it all made sense.

I was having health issues and the doctors couldn’t find anything wrong with me… it was probably just a side effect of what I was eating. So I decided to ditch the “Healthy Foods” and search for Real Food.

We started making everything from scratch and we felt amazing!! But then we became parents and life got CRAZY! read more
