About seven years ago, my husband and I decided to go into a business venture together. The stakes were pretty high: We knew that it was a long-term investment and that we would be working crazy hours. We knew that we would not receive any financial gain from it and that once we entered it, there was no backing out. We were signing up for sleepless nights, an increase in marital strain and depression, and potential health…Continue

I was drawn to this book because of its title ‘Unemployable!’ I just love the title, as it was exactly what my now husband classified me as 10 years before we married when I was a self-employed mum working in his garden – and he was right I could never be employed by anyone else. I love the freedom too much!

If you're looking to earn money from your blog, at some point it's time to make the jump from running your site as a hobby to treating it like a real business. Below are several resources to use for guidance along the way, each of which I've used personally in the last ~24 months.
Established in May 1997, WomanOwned.com started as Woman Owned Workplaces as part of At First Site, Inc. By September 1997, the website moved to its own…Continue

Also known as a multi-level marketing, this business structure may seem like a pyramid scheme at the first glance. But, network marketing differs from such money games in terms that it has basis in commerce. Products and services are exchanged for fair prices, and everyone can profit from the success of other people in the system. Thus, network marketing enhances the personal budget, expands the circle of friends and satisfies the need to feel significant and to be in…Continue

We all start our business for reasons that are specific to us. We are born entrepreneurs; we crave freedom; cannot spend our days in a florescent cubicle; we want more time with our kids, etc. But the successful businesses are the ones that are fully aligned with their core purpose. That core purpose is literally infused into every part of their business. Their website copy screams their purpose and mission. Their branding is completely on point with their WHY and their social media presence…Continue

I know alot of folks ask why should I have a business page versus a personal profile but there are some benefits.
Facebook business page benefits:
1) When posting to your business page you can choose to post as yourself or as your business page. Make sure you are posting as your business page. After you post you can comment or like your post as yourself by changing the "liking and commenting" option to yourself. This will make the post visible in your newsfeed for your…Continue

Let’s face it - the unknown is daunting.

Obstacles may seem insurmountable at first glance but if you are dedicated to your efforts and you do the proper research, you WILL work through them.
You can’t crush true…Continue

One of the challenges startups often face is finding time to establish a robust online presence that fully represents their business, value proposition and scope of services. Understandably, preliminary efforts are concentrated more on the service offerings themselves but even if a company offers products and services that are in high demand, if nobody can find the company, it won't be able to make a sale.
I recently connected with the owner of …Continue

Being a stay-at-home mom can be more time-consuming than the job you held before the children arrived. Taking care of children, the house and the yard is an endless job and you don't get a paycheck for it at the end of the week. For this reason, many mothers start flexible businesses at home and become work-at-home mothers. From babysitting to designing websites, creative moms are finding way to earn some extra cash. Discover four reasons to get…Continue

Self-published authors have a pretty steep learning curve if they want to joint the ranks of the bestsellers. And I'm not talking about the Amazon bestsellers, I'm talking about the New York Times and USA Today bestsellers. Not an easy feat. It also doesn't happen for everyone. Authors can bust their tails for years and years, writing book after book and never make…Continue

I love Quora. It's a really cool knowledge-sharing site. You register and build up your profile with topics of interest. Then you can apply your own experience and answer users' questions about said topics. As you build up your credibility on the site, people then come to you to answer their questions.
I've gotten some cool questions but just answered this one today and thought I'd share. =)

Bill Rancic has certainly come a long way from his win on The Apprentice. He was just featured on The Rhode Show to talk about a new campaign he is running with Intuit Quick Books to celebrate the success of small businesses in America, which have accounted for two-third of new jobs created in the United States in the past decade. They’d run a similar campaign a few years back and it was so wildly successful, they’re going to…Continue
