Are Work at Home Moms Doing It Wrong?

I cheap ampicillin buy love connecting with other people who are like me.  As I moved my work at home career online, I was amoxicillin excited about how easy it appeared to be to connect with other moms who also had an online business.  I went to places like mybloglog.com hoping to connect with other moms.  I bought a few books written by work at home moms. I was, and continue to be, pretty disappointed in what I find.  My email box is stuffed full of promotions from internet marketers.  What the sales letters for all of these promotions have in common buy propecia cheap is a great story about how the marketer is financially free.  He can take his family anywhere at any time.  There are pictures of cars, homes, vacations. I can count on one hand the number of times over the past ten years I’ve received one of these emails from a woman. And never from a work at home mom. So what are we work from home moms doing?  The books I’ve read (and it’s not even close generic amoxil to all of them) talk about how to organize your office space, deal with your customers, and manage your kids at the same time. The blogs I’ve visited almost universally lack one thing — any suggestion that a work at home mom can learn to leverage her time so that she can create financial freedom for her family and have the time to actually enjoy it. Most moms seems to be doing something barely better than a J-O-B.  They are trading time for money.  They...

How to Take Your Home Business to the Tipping Point

“The first requisite of success is the ability to apply your physical and mental energies to one problem without growing weary.” – Thomas Edison. I find this to be a beautiful description of home business ownership.  The “one problem” we face as home business owners is how to reach the point where our business is easy.  Where we put in a few hours work and see thousands of dollars in return. Along the road to success there are many, many days when our physical and/or mental energies grow weary before we even begin to tackle “the problem.”  There are still times when I feel awake and ready to go, yet my mind seems incapable of producing anything.  And times when I lay in bed having the greatest ideas, but my body won’t let me get out of bed and get to the computer. I haven’t spent a lot of time with people who have given up on their home business.  But I have to think that many people quit simply because they grow weary.  Weary of working all day and coming home to dinner, a messy house, family time and — after all that — having to be brilliant for a few more hours of work on your home business. Of course, when people quit, they generally don’t say, “I’m weary.  I give up.”  Instead, they make excuses for why it didn’t work for them.  They didn’t have the technical skills, didn’t have the time, home businesses are all scams. . . Whatever. They’re all excuses.  Because anyone who does apply their physical and mental energies to their home...

Personal Development and Kids: Teaching Failure and Success

We are responsible for teaching our kids personal development. At least until their teenage years. Not only do we have the obligation to teach our own kids, but also to be a positive influence on any children we have contact with. Let them know personal development is important. Of course, as with most things concerning kids, the direct approach is not the most effective. You don’t want to sit your children down and explain the idea of personal development to them and talk about why it’s important for their future. Unless you’re looking for a bedtime story. Instead, you need to teach by being an example, using examples, and having a consistent mindset for self improvement. And, you need to think carefully about the message you convey. As adults we define success as having a good job, having a lot of money, being in a happy marriage with the “right” number of kids, driving a nice car. And we traditionally expect our kids to follow a path that will lead them to have this type of success. So we expect from our kids that they will get good grades, choose a good college, hang out with the other “good” kids, be in the band or on the sports team (and be good at it). We oftentimes push our kids to be the best that they can be. And because they’re our kids, that means they’ll get A’s, and go away to highly ranked schools with all of their friends. They’ll be first chair in the band, and first string on the team. But not every kid will be all those things. In fact,...

Too Lazy for Home Business Success?

Most of us resist change, consciously or not.  We are comfortable in the predictability of our routine, even as we realize our lives are far from the “perfect” we imagine. This “comfort zone” that we float through life in is seriously challenged by our desire for the time and financial freedom buy generic levitra a successful home business will bring. There’s a part of us that wants to change our lives almost completely.  And you may argue that it’s not just a part of you, that you — 100% all the way — want to change your life.  And maybe you’re right.  But what I have found is that most of us struggle between the comfort zone that is our life, and the desire to completely change our life. One of the hurdles to home business success for many of us is that things in our lives just aren’t that bad.  We have a home, food on the table, a steady income, all the basic necessities of life.  We want a better life.  But fortunately, we don’t really need a better life. I used to see examples of this in my life often.  And it always made me mad.  Yet, it took me years to correct it.  To get over it, or through it, or whatever. I have an offline business that I’m reasonably happy with.  It more than pays the bills.  Whenever something happened in that business that really upset me, I would say to myself, “This is it.  I’m not doing this anymore.  I’m going cheapest online ampicillin propecia online to work my online business 24 hours...

Work From Home and Simplify Your Life

Remember when you first started your work from home journey?  You were likely attracted by the promise that making money online was easy.  And the pictures of the house you could buy, the cars you could drive, and the vacations  you could take just a few months into your work from home business. Unfortunately, it hasn’t turned out to be that easy at all.  Instead of having an easier life, you’re likely feeling more overwhelmed than ever.  It’s not as easy as a couple of hours a night.  Not if you want to succeed in this lifetime.  And the work it takes to grow a successful work from home business is anything but easy. A couple of years into my journey to grow a successful work from home online business, I realized something that troubled me a lot.  This new business that was suppose to bring me happiness and freedom and all things good, was actually making me more miserable than ever. Once I realized what it takes to grow a five figure a month business, I was completely overwhelmed.  Yes, I’d finally figured out what I have to do, but I have no computer knowledge and am completely right-brained. How would I ever be able to learn and implement everything it takes?  If you haven’t had this feeling of being completely overwhelmed, you are probably still deluding yourself as to the effort and skill necessary to successfully work from home. Don’t despair.  As with most every problem, a little personal development and selfimprovement work can turn things around for you. How you think about things is everything.  So...
