I read somewhere that there are only 900 some odd weekends for a child from birth to high school graduation. That got me thinking... maybe I should make some plans to make some plans.Read More
It's been three years officially since I started my home-based business. And it's been one year since I expanded that business to an official "part-time" job where I earn a consistent income.
I hear from a lot of people ( A LOT!) who want to start their own business freelancing from home. And I am honest with them, it can be tough but I am also proof that it can be done.
So I thought I would share a few websites where you could start earning a freelance income this month.Read More
I'm a full-time work at home mom. Just a few short years ago I didn't think this was possible. I didn't think I would ever make real money from home and still get to spend time with my kids.
For the past four years I have been working as a virtual assistant creating marketing campaigns, videos and blog posts for my clients. I want to teach you how to build a successful business from home.
Whether you want to earn a full-time income or just extra money to help your family I can show you the steps I have used.Read More
I feel like, at any point, if we're all honest, we've gotten off track when it comes to budgeting. Maybe it was intentional- you were tired and we just wanted that cup of coffee. Or maybe it was unintentional, as in you forgot to budget for something.
At some point, everyone has gotten off track. The key to getting out of debt, staying out of debt, living intentionally and with purpose within your budget is that when you get off track, you get back on track as quickly as possible.
Goals are important. Without them, it's really hard to anchor our time.
When we make a to-do list, that's a goal. When we set out to lose weight with a number in mind, that's a goal.
Why not deal with finance the same way?
Jason and I are currently working on some big savings goals. We decided in February of this year on a specific number we needed in our savings account and estimated how long it would take us to get there.
We've made great progress. But we've also had some setbacks.Read More
I recently had someone leave a comment asking "Are you frugal or cheap?"
And I really had to think about that. Am I frugal or am I cheap?
I think I'm a mix of both. I think I'm frugal about the things that are really important. And cheap about the things that don't matter to me that much.
There are plenty of things that you can do that save you time that are expensive. And there are plenty of things you can do that save you money but take a million years. So we want to find that sweet spot in between, especially now that it is back-to-school time.Read More
As we head into the holiday season I like to use this as a time of reflection. As the year draws to a close I think about my goals, what I've accomplished and where I thought I would be.
There are a few goals that I did reach this year, both business and personal. And many, many, many more that I didn't. A few a came so close to and didn't quite reach and a few where I failed miserably.Read More
