Do You Dread Mondays?

August 29th, 2013
Author: Linda W

How many times have you wished the weekend just had a few more hours, that it couldn’t possibly be over and back to the daily grind? I know, for I felt this way every Monday morning. I would get down on Sunday afternoon just knowing that tomorrow was another day at the office.

Since I’ve joined the Women’s Dream Team and became my on boss, I don’t feel this way anymore. I don’t wake to an alarm clock, I wake so much easier for I enjoy what I’m doing. I get my morning coffee and start my day. My stress levels have dropped tremendously and my attitude is so awesome. I don’t have the Monday morning blues anymore, I love my job!

If you would like to feel this excitement too, please click on and let us show you how we got out of the rut and am enjoying our life again. So can you!

We don’t have to listen to a boss tell us what to do, We set our own guidelines and there is no glass ceiling on our earning potential.

There’s no time better than the present to make a change.

What have you got to lose?

Looking forward to hearing from you.

While working from home is not without start up costs, many of those costs can be defrayed by the savings that working from home brings. Even if you only work part time, you may save some money. So if you’re thinking about switching from the office to home, here are some areas where you can save a little of the green stuff.

1. Commuting

If you currently take public transportation to work, you will immediately notice more money in your pocket when you don’t have to lay out for the monthly or daily commutation cost. Although if you are commuting part time, the savings in public transit cost could be wiped out by a monthly discount full-time commuters may get.

If you drive to work, your savings could be greater but not as immediately noticeable. Not only does commuting save money on gas, it decreases the number of miles on your car. This, in turn, means less maintenance and repairs costs, and it could lower your car insurance payments.

2. Child Care

Not all work-at-home moms will save money on child care but many will. Though few moms with jobs can make do with no child care, work at home moms often manage to work full-time with only part-time childcare.

3. Food

Of course, you will eat when working from home. In fact, if you’re not careful, you may eat more! But you won’t pay nearly as much. The cost of preparing your own lunches is significantly less than eating out everyday. And it’s generally better for you too. If you like leftovers, you may find that making a little extra at dinner is a convenient way to always have a lunch ready.

4. Clothes

You need fewer dressy (and expensive) clothes when you work from home. When you must have a different work-appropriate outfit for every day of the week, not only does it cost more, but it almost takes some of the creativity out of buying clothes. I enjoy the challenge of buying several flexible items that can be mixed and matched for both dressy and casual occasions.

5. Time Is Money

This manifests itself in a million different ways for each of us. Work-at-home moms certainly don’t have unlimited time. But when working outside the home, we tend to use more timesavers, which usually cost extra.

Women’s Dream Team® is the leading work at home business team for moms. We are a group of diverse moms all over the world working together to create financial freedom and a better quality of life for our families.

Summer Lessons

August 5th, 2013
Author: Linda W

This weekend I found an amazing way to teach children to eat healthy and treat the Earth well. I took my daughters and my nephew to the Farmer’s Market. Not only were we able to talk to the kids who farmed the food on their family farms but they were able to see the food without all the chemicals.

I never had time when I worked in the corporate world to stop and take my kids to the farmer’s market, as I usually rushed late at night or after work to the grocery store (of course paying all those high prices) I always saw shopping for food as a horrible chore, not a learning experience. Now that I have an online business for women with Women’s Dream Team, I have the time to explore options like the Farmer’s Market.

We also did some math as we were able to calculate how much money we were saving. (I also threw in some social studies when I talked about fueling the local economy and not the chain stores) What a great educational field trip that brought us healthy food at a great savings. (It is possible to sneak in education over summer break!)
