Profit From An Online Business

January 29th, 2010

Internet-Online-BusinessIt’s true what they say: you can earn money from the Internet. Web surfers can get paid for visiting sites, responding to surveys, writing reviews, referring friends, clicking ads, rating products and services, and contributing articles and snapshots. The compensation may not be sizeable, but it is ready cash nonetheless.

Enterprising hobbyists can also profit from an online business. By creating their own website, they can sell their goods to others who similarly frequent the Net, aside from their existing network of family, friends, and colleagues. Several online entrepreneurs also benefit greatly from joining social networking sites. Through these friendly sites, any member can set up a business, market his wares, broaden his reach, and increase his client base.

Most small-scale online businesses are run on the side or operated part time only by their busy proprietors. These people have day jobs, full time work elsewhere, or are stay at home parents whose top priorities are their kids and their homes. Even if you have never held a nine-to-five job, there are lucrative home based businesses for moms you can take advantage of.

How many of you have a close relationship with someone who saves you thousands of dollars every year? If you are running a home business for women, and doing your own taxes, you could be throwing away your hard-earned money. I am educated in the field of accounting. However, the responsibility of staying current with the latest tax laws is a burden I am not equipped to manage. In years past, when I was an employee, I enjoyed the efficiency of tax preparation software. The interview-styled questions helped me understand my IRS form 1040. I even happily volunteered to help friends and neighbors complete their tax returns.

Money 500
This year will be different. I own a home-based business. Even after my years of tax experience, I don’t trust my outdated knowledge, or my ability to navigate software, to the task of keeping every penny that I’m allowed. I’ll leave that job to the experts; those folks who must pay for continuing education classes every year, in order to get the most relevant information available. The same people who, this time of year, are working sixty to eighty hours per week. Do yourself a big favor and hire an expert this year. How much will it cost? Keep the reciept. You can deduct it as a 2010 business expense next year. Please remember one thing. When tax season is finished. Hug your accountant.

Perception

January 24th, 2010

I just read this story and it struck me

b10135
An exectutive from one of the major airlines boarded one of his own aircraft en route to a busines meeting. Before they left the gate, the executive pulled down the tray table form the seat in front of him and found a cofee stain on it. He refused to let the plane leave until the flight attendant had gone through and checked every tray table on the entire aircraft. The crew quickly went thorugh the cabin, did a few spot cleanings, and in only a minute or two they were in the air heading toward their destination.
During the flight, one of the attendants approached the executive and asked him why he had made such a big deal about a little coffee stain on his tray table. His answer was simple. Pereption. He asked the flight attendant, if one of our paying passengers pulls down their table and finds a stain on it, what will their perception of our airline be? The attendant thought for a moment and the recognized that the perception would be that the airline does not care or that they don’t pay attention to details. Perhaps this would lead a customer to wonder; how well do they service their engines? It could have created a loss of confidence in the airline all together.

In our every day lives, professionalism is a quality that leads to a great perception. With Women’s Dream Team, we are a top notch professional group of women that work from our homes with our own home based business. As Women Entrepreneurs we want the top notch perception 100% of the time!

Love Being Home

20171_1109856366468_1828641540_216086_5552090_nI am finally getting used to the fact that I am a grandma and all of a sudden I have 12 grand kids. I am writing this blog from my son’s house in Elizabethtown, KY. I feel so blessed because without my home-based business I wouldn’t have been able to jump in the car and come down here to see my brand new granddaughter or to see my son off to Qatar next week. I remember back when my children were growing up. I worked so hard all the time, 40-50 hours a week. I was lucky to use my lunch hour in order to take care of doctor appointments or school functions. I was so exhausted when I got home in the evenings by the time I finished cooking dinner, getting the kids ready and cleaning up the house I didn’t have any desire to plan a vacation. I am so happy to be able to have it different now. Since we 6 year old twin boys now and we are new parents all over again, I find myself so rich in the fact that I can work from home and be home with my kids. Believe me, life is so much easier now.

Pursuing Your Interests

January 20th, 2010
Author: Hear-Us-Roar

workThe most important part of owning your own business is entering into an arena that you’re passionate about. Most people look into home businesses for moms because they have had enough of their 9 to 5 office job. For this reason, being self employed will be a lot more enjoyable if you can work in a sector where your interests and passions reside. But excited new entrepreneurs should also realize that you have to enter into a business with pragmatism as well.

It’s great to be passionate about something, but if there’s no discernable market for your passion, there’s no point in leaving the comfort and stability of your day job. If your only goal is to turn a profit, you may or may not make money. But if you pursue something you really love, you’re more likely to stick it out until you start seeing those always important profits.

Did Someone Say Opportunity?

business opportunities for moms

 

I never liked the idea of working for someone else; I always felt like they were selling my time to the highest bidder and skimming 95% off the top. Turns out I was right. Now I don’t have to worry about that stuff anymore, since I took advantage of these rock-solid business opportunities for moms

The smartest decision I ever made was when I stopped working for someone else and started working for myself.  I never thought it would be possible, but now I have a stable income opportunity that gives me more time with my family. Little did I know that these opportunities really exist and the reason they’re so successful is because so many people choose not to take advantage of it! Can you believe that?  Believe it, and get yours today.

What About The Children?

January 5th, 2010

k0924835My greatest desire in life has been to be a foster parent. I have such a burden for children who have gotten stuck with parents that just shouldn’t be parents. Grandparents all over the world are raising their grandkids. What has happened to this generation that they are so irresponsible? Where did we go wrong raising them?

Most of us have so much we forget how little others have. I am not talking so much about worldly possessions or money, I am talking about love, security, the feeling of belonging, knowing others care about us. Sadness overwhelms me when I think of all the little children who are being left alone, being beat, sexually abused, starving, lacking medical attention and so many other neglects. What can we do right? Did you know that:

   According to NCANDS whose latest statistics are for 2005 an estimated 3.3 million referrals of child abuse or neglect were received by public social service or CPS      agencies. Of these referrals, 899,000 children were confirmed to be victims of abuse or neglect (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 2007). That means about 12 out of every 1,000 children up to age 18 in the United States were found to be victims of maltreatment in 2005(USDHHS, 2007).(http://www.americanhumane.org/about-us/newsroom/fact-sheets/child-abuse-neglect-data.html)

I believe that if each one of us just took it upon ourselves to help with children in our extended families that may fall victim to abuse and neglect that we would make a world of difference to a child. I have a home-based business so that I can do that. Some may say it’s not our responsibility as grandparents, aunts, uncles, sisters, or cousins to care for someone else’s child. That is true. These kids are the responsibilities of their parents. But their parents aren’t living up to their task. Should the child suffer? I say no. Why are we on this earth anyway? I will take any child I can, even if for a day, to let them feel safe and loved. It could make all the difference in the world.

Kids & Home vs. Job!

January 3rd, 2010

my_bannerI just could not believe what the doctor was telling me. My son, an autoimmune disease, how in the world could this be. I don’t believe it. Every week I have to drive my son to the doctor for blood work and every two weeks take him to the hematologist/oncologist for a once over. He looks so normal, acts normal, eats normal but the reality is that his immune system is destroying him. What makes that happen? As I sat reflecting on all this new information I realized how blessed I am to be able to Stay At Home Mom Business and be available to do all this running back and forth every week. Moms really need to be able to be home so they can deal with the speed bumps that life has before us. Just when we think we have it all figured out, in comes one from left field. I could not imagine having to deal with the stress of my son’s diagnosis and have to go to a job and deal with that stress as well. As moms we need to research and try to do whatever necessary to stay home and care for our children instead of having to drop them off somewhere for a daycare to do it. This is the most important job that was ever created and we need to put our all into it. They grow up to quickly.
