7 Tips For Home Business Building For Busy Moms


So many of us busy moms are floundering in our at home business building and it is so frustrating, right?!.. While there are so many out there having success,  there are still many out there that are not having this success. WHY!!!???

Currently, I am flooding myself with self-development and learning, even, unlearning… We have to set down and make a game plan. We have to help others to make money in a sincere and worthwhile fashion..

That is really all this post is about today..

Honestly, I am shocked at all the people around us that want to help us make money while at the same time they are ready and willing to take a ton of it fromus! Whaatt!? Us busy moms(and dads!) are trying to hold on to our money, NOT letting go of it!

I say it is time for those people to be responsible. I have been watching , listening and learning, trying to pick out who is the best out there to learn from, to make money from. I have been hammering the industry for the last several years to get a better grasp on the situation and this is what I am finding…

Not Everything is a Scam or Pyramid!unsure

Look, busy ladies, honestly, EVERYTHING works for SOMEONE! It really does! Do you realize that a pyramid scheme is on every corner?! No joke, your favorite department store, hardware store, Big Box store, convenience store.. every business, bank, and ball team is a pyramid, people!! I am so grateful for MLM’s, because, they want to help you make REAL MONEY! They, at least, pay you a little residual, which can eventually, even quickly turn into a whole lot of residual if YOU ARE CONSISTENT with your business system.  From now on we need to call MLM’S what they really are, business systems! What aforementioned company above is giving you a residual income, commission, or helping you make money while you sleep?

Learn to Leverage a Business System!

It is the only way. I am connected with two ladies who are job-optional! They came to me with a  business system! Do you think I listened! I sure did!  I have people come to me wanting to talk about their business system all the time. I listen and I look and I watch.. All I have to say is, Show Me the Money! And then, show me how it works.. Yes, I am finally getting it.. But, I do not jump into every single one. I have to do what I love! what I am passionate about. Now, for some of us , it takes time to figure out what we want to do.

For a few of you right now, you are into something you don’t love! I say, if you are not making money with it to leave, but, if you are making money with it, then, use that income to get to a place where you CAN do what you love! BUT, be careful AND fully research any business before jumping in.

Ladies and gentleman, learn to leverage a system, and not simply yourself.  Robert Kiyosaki gives us some great advice:

“The size of your success is measured by the strength of your desire; the size of your dream; and how you handle disappointment along the way.
If you want to go somewhere, it is best to find someone who has already been there.
When people are lame, they love to blame.”

A Few Tips to Help You on Your Way!

I have a list for you if you are frustrated in your business, if you are stuck, if you are dissatisfied with the lack of freedom, time, and money..

  • If you are looking to make money, make sure the people that you are wanting to do business are ACTUALLY making money!!
  •  Don’t apply information until you know it is right!
  • Do find a person to edify who is already successful.
  • Keep it simple!

Also, work on YOU!

  • I think it works
  • I can do it!
  • Pay attention!

Someone that I really love and respect is LMU with Robert Hollis (and Meladee Ryba, who is my respected friend and mentor… They are the real busy-mom1deal!)

Ladies, find a coach or mentor that can help you find a game plan for your life business. That would be my number one advice to you, unless, you have a very financial savvy husband. If you need help finding one, contact me and we can talk about some options. I might even share Meladee with you!!

It is a mindset , ladies! It is not all about selling anymore. The landscape with network marketing is changing. We need change along with it! It is exciting and fun! I look forward to the journey!! I want you too, as well!!

Hello Everybody!


Just a quick update to say HEY, I am still here! How are you all!?  The summer has brought me time to rethink , refocus and relax.  I am glad to say I pj 180x180HAVE relaxed and just gotten away from the computer in various ways, yet, not totally!

I am hoping the time away has brought new growth and new direction. I am so looking forward to simply sharing with you all the new things going on.

The new things are ALL my great kids are in public school now! My 15 year old just started 8th grade public school, First  time! He has been homeschooled most of his life, He did have one year and a little more of a private school, but, it turned out to be a very bad experience and personally frustrating as a parent, as they set him back rather than helping him forward. Nonetheless, moving forward, we had some testing done to find his learning strengths and weaknesses. Results are still out…None the less, It is a tremendous beginning and looking forward to all the great things to be done before the year is through! I am anticipating the rewards of being a BOSS and all that has already accumulated!


My focus continues to refine. I think for all of us in business, particularly for newer online students and entrepreneurs, we want to find what works right now! I know that is true for me, There is so much noise and confusion out there and sitting in front of a computer striving to find the right path is definitely frustrating. Sitting on you butt, trying to get out of the office yet still in front of a computer is not really the result that any of us are looking for right?!

Life is so fleeting, so, that is my goal, to find things that allow me to experience life and not waste it in my home office. Time saved from being on a computer in any form is time spent with my family! GOAL!

That is were I am at!  what is everyone else  up to these days?

School beginning and Fall go hand in hand! I just love this time of year!! Blessing to you all, Talk soon!



Tips to Busy Moms for Working at Home!


You want to work at home. You are tired. You don’t know where you kids are. Your hubby is exhausted working 24/7 it seems like.. Does any of  this elegant_mac_by_fernandoroser-d5wdv7osound familiar? Yes?

Are you and your partner working around the clock and still not paying bills. Is you every day job ever going to give you a raise. Do you want to really actually fire your boss? Is time for you to be a B.O.S.S.!?!

Why am I asking You these questions?

Because I want you to stop and think. Stop now and think about what you really want to be doing .. Make a mental picture right now.

  1. What does it look like?
  2. Write down some steps to get there.
  3.  Today,   before you go to bed,  do one  productive thing  to make a step toward those steps on that paper!

Why do I Care About What You DO?

I care because I know how you feel. I care because I hate being miserable or seeing people in misery, honestly! Life is so short to have a J.O.B. this is not satisfying.

How Can I look Great and Still do All I Need to DO?!

  1. Eat right.
  2. Exercise.
  3. Get rest!
  4. Drink plenty of water!
  5. Get lots of sunshine!
  6. Essentially, take care of yourself! If that means wash your face and moisturize,  then take time to do just that.

Get up. Get dressed. Put your shoes on.  be ready for the day and for anything that comes your way. This doesn’t mean be dressed to the T, but,  be comfortable with yourself and your appearance. Have fun. Fix your hair or use a touch of makeup, even if its your favorite blush or lipgloss.  My rule of thumb on lipstick is a little goes a LONG way.. The more natural the look,the better!

Clean Your House!flylady

Now, do not get me wrong here, my house is not perfect… It never well be, but, I do like to get things off the floor and the counters and SHINE THE SINK . The Fly Lady is an inspiration to me and can help you out too if you are look for a way to keep your home clean and feel good about yourself!


Basically, take back your life!

That is it in a nutshell. To be your own boss, you have got to take steps to take back your life!

Is it going to be easy? Probably not!

Are you going to have to do some work? Most likely. Are you going to lose some sleep? Potentially! But, it is either that or keep doing things the harder way, losing more sleep and being more miserable until the day you die!

So, map out that plan and start taking steps now however small they may be…

Other Changes!

At the moment I am using Namecheap for webhosting. It has been a chore to get settled. I had lots of problems that need a friend of mine from Twitter to come in and take care of. Jim was amazing and did everything for me. He is a Web developer champ and if it weren’t for his moving all my sites over and doing all the heavy lifting I would have lost all my websites completely, because of my ignorance!

Yes you heard me right. I met this associate on Twitter and he has become a great friend and trusted associate, at that! Odd, but, true and so glad I did.

Well, that whole experience took over two weeks to sort out and was so time-consuming, but, I am now rested and looking forward to spending my extra time and energy on helping get people like you and me a income online without consuming a very sensitive warm market! Thus, I invite you on the journey!

I hope you are having a great summer so far and that it would truly be a lazy happy time for us all. Summer just goes by too fast!


12 Ways to Avoid Scams Online!


Avodiscamsonline picWhen you hear about people getting scammed online, you have to wonder how they could be so dumb, right!? Well, it happens more than you think and it happens to smart, savvy people all the time. It is humiliating! I know! It happened to my husband and I!

Long story short, hubby sold a  laptop computer on Craigslist. The West Coast buyer paid via counterfeit cashiers check. Imagine that! Before we knew it, though, it was too late!

Who is Stopping YOU from Being Scammed?

Are you expecting  your spouse or a good friend and confidant that you trust to keep up on scams or warn you of a potential scam? Are you prepared with enough information yourself to prevent a scammer?

Because, in all honesty, your knowledge or lack of knowledge is the only thing, the only weapon you have  standing between a thief scamming you or not. In many cases, by the time, a friend or spouse finds out, the mistake is already made. The damage is already done.

I was recently reading an article in the Reader’s Digest which prompted me to write this post. The article speaks of a woman who fell in love with a con man whom she meet through an online dating service. She only communicated with him via emails.

This person, Duane or Dewayne(they could not even remember how to spell their own name!) asked her for money many times, which she sent  with the promise that (he) would come see her, but, something always happened to detain that visit, so, she never got to meet (him)!

(He) scammed her and she  lost a ton of money to a virtual stranger. No one knows who “he” really was or where this person (or persons )really lives, and who is still out there ready for the next victim. Someone unprepared and unsuspecting, who would have no clue what to look for.

If this is you, read on.

3 Important Points to Remember To Avoid Scams!

In the video above, I discuss 3 of the primary things , the 3 R’s,you need to consider to successfully avoid scams online. Plus, I pull  a trick on you, see if you can find it!

  • Know who you are talking to=Real.
  • Know who they are associated with= Relationship.
  • Make sure  the people and their programs  are fully vetted before you even consider them= Relevant.

Like mama always says, don’t talk to strangers! It is old, but, good advice still worth listening to.

12 Ways to Avoid Scams Online!

  1. Do stay off dating websites.download
  2. Do not contact strangers, particularly, those whom you have no mutual relations with.
  3. Do not answer or reply to strangers that you cannot associate anyone with on Facebook, Twitter etc. Block people you do not know if they start out a message with Hey, I want to know you better! . Particularly, if they have no posts or Tweets in their  accounts or their account is new and they have no friends or followers. Beware!
  4. Do NOT give money to a person you do not personally know and have only known of online.
  5. Do NOT send money to Nigeria! Period. Most scams originate in Africa and Nigeria.
  6.  Do not wire unusual fees or payments to otherwise legitimate services or government services, such as the IRS, They will  not email you and ask you to wire, transfer or send such things via Western Union  or MoneyGram, etc. to them ever!
  7. Publisher’s Clearinghouse will not  email you or ask you to pay for fees to claim a prize, EVER! Never send them money, particularly, to Jamaica!
  8. Tell this to everyone you know.
  9. Do stay off of suspicious websites.
  10. Do NOT give Network Marketers your information or personal details.
  11. Use caution when buying online with your cellphone as these devices can fail to protect you from what you computer might normally.
  12. ALWAYS take your time and never rush into a decision or a once in a life time opportunity! Stop! Think! Wait! If it is a good deal today, it will be a good deal tomorrow or MAYBE, not! Maybe, you just saved yourself some money down the drain by waiting and see if it is too good to be true, since, usually,  it usually is!

The Web Makes It Easy!

You see, the web has allowed people too easily to take on identities that are not their own.  They can put up a fake picture. A fake profile. They can be males posing as females or females posing as males or you could have several people posing as one person or even a corporation or business.  This is why you must be very diligent to make sure you know who your friends are and who you are doing business with.

It is so easy for a would be scammer to pull a fast one on a potential unsuspecting victim, simply because they never thought about it. So, please, right NOW, think about it. Think about the chances of the next victim being you and how YOU can prevent it!

Even then, there is the possibility that the people who we are dealing with are still not the people they say they are, but, at least, we up our chances!

I had a good friend years ago whose mother had a boyfriend. I saw him at our place of work with her all the time. He was tall, silver haired and lived with her for many months.  As quickly as he appeared , He vanished without a word. One day he just up and left. Disappeared. Never to come back.

I add this  scenario simply to say, if you cannot trust someone you know and see, then, why on earth would you want to trust a complete stranger  from only an email or an online ad or announcement of any sort?

You need think about what you are doing, because, in the end, you will not be able to blame anyone else, but, yourself.  Police rarely can catch an online scammer. Much less, bring one to justice. Think about THAT.

legit-online-jobs-scamWe THINK we know people, but, do we really?! We think we are smart and savvy and can spot a con a mile away, but, can we really!?

Please be careful and never give out your money and information unless you don’t care to see it again. Most of us work way too hard to part easily with our money. Your knowledge is  the only thing standing between you and a scammer!

Be safe out there and please, I hope and pray you are always fully  informed  so, that you can  do all you can to avoid scams online and help others by passing this information on! Alrighty then! Thank you for reading and please do  leave me a comment to let me know if this article has helped you in any way!
