When to quit

When to quit
I have watched my little boy stand and fall down, take a step and fall down, use a walker and fall down.  Yet still, he keeps on standing and trying to walk.  He gets frustrated sometimes and resorts to crawling to get where he wants to go faster, yet he keeps on trying.  He has no idea what experiences are waiting on him, like how much fun it will be to run around and play football with his mates, or… Read the rest

How is your outlook affecting your life?

How is your outlook affecting your life?
I understand this may be too airy fairy for some but I only heard of the ‘water experiment with Dr Masaru Emoto a couple of weeks ago and I couldn’t believe I’d never heard of it! To give you a brief explanation, he spoke and wrote words on different classes of water.  He froze the water before and after the experiment and took photos of the crystalised water partices.  There’s a video below with screenshots of the crystalised frozen water particles… Read the rest

Dig your well before you’re thirsty

Dig your well before you’re thirsty
How many times in life do we wish we had saved more for the rainy day that arrived before we were ready, or put aside a small amount each month to pay for that big purchase we knew we would have to make. Why do we choose to play small, or sacrifice the achievements we know we’re capable of and choose instant gratification/sabotage in the present moment? You see an opportunity to create the circumstances / life that you’ve craved,… Read the rest

My little motivator

My little motivator
Over the past number of months, my main motivator and driving force has also been my reason to prioritise and therefore take things a little bit easier aswell.  As you may know from my previous blogs, we are happily expecting our first baby next month so being at home full-time and able to schedule work around childcare is one of the many advantages I’m looking forward to being able to capitalise on; however after talking to lots of other women… Read the rest

Exciting Life Changes and My Baby Realisations

Exciting Life Changes and My Baby Realisations
I’ve just hung out a wash of baby clothes bought to pack in my hospital bag in a few weeks and our little back yard area has taken on a new look I’ve never seen before!  Being a first timer at all of this, I’ve not been sure what to buy, when to stop work, how to prepare, or how much of anything is normal when you’re pregnant but I’m getting used to the idea of just doing my best and… Read the rest

Why working from home isn’t for everyone

Why working from home isn’t for everyone
I’m sure you’ve read the rosy pictures and inspirational quotes about creating a life you’ve always dreamt of having, however they don’t show you the reasons why it might NOT be for you.  I’ve written my top five characteristics to avoid work from home businesses, so you can either be better equipped for the journey to financial freedom, or take a different route. No self-discipline or lazy outlook.  If you are someone who isn’t easily motivated and relies on a boss with a… Read the rest

My first 2 weeks of full-time home business

My first 2 weeks of full-time home business
I’ve received a few messages asking me how I’ve been getting on with the big move to to 100% salary from my home business after finishing work on 30th March, so I thought I’d write a blog to cover a few of the things that have happened in the last fortnight. The most notable difference is how much brighter and awake I feel in the mornings!  I seem to wake up before my alarm clock and think it might be something to… Read the rest

I’m expecting!

I’m expecting!
I have been keeping this piece of news off social media for the last few months for a couple of reasons. Firstly because I felt it was a precious part of our lives and I just wanted to make sure everything would be ok before I made it ‘public.’ I actually only realised this week why else I had been holding back, which will seem silly to some but obvious to others – I think I was keeping my wonderful… Read the rest

Sacking the boss to work from home

Sacking the boss to work from home
As you may already know from my website and watching others, working from home gives you choices.  Those choices can be to have more time to spend however you wish, to spend the extra money you make on bigger or more frequent holidays, a car upgrade, or simply to choose to be your own boss and not take orders anymore!  Last week I made that choice and I have to admit it feels good!  I’m sure I’m not alone in daydreaming… Read the rest

How to make your work from home business work!

How to make your work from home business work!
The decision to start a home business can be many things to many different people.  Exciting, terrifying, a big leap, or not so big step depending on your character.  I feel this divides us into two types of people – those who focus on the things they will have to do and feel weighed down by doubt if they could do it or ‘fit it in’ to an already busy schedule, meanwhile, there are those who focus on the things that… Read the rest

Getting paid to travel or paying to travel

Getting paid to travel or paying to travel
I thought I’d make today’s blog on the beauty of travelling and getting paid to do it instead of paying to travel! It’s almost April and perhaps time to start day dreaming of what to pack for your summer holidays, but are you going on your dream holiday to your ultimate destination? Just imagine a life where you could choose anywhere in the world you’d love to visit, you could expand your work from home company there too by introducing people from… Read the rest

How to work from home this summer

How to work from home this summer
If you are anything like me, sitting in an office on a sunny day watching the clock tick by isn’t your idea of fun, I’d much rather have the flexibility to be outside when the sun is shining, and likewise be there for my family when they need me then do the work when it suits me. I also like that my income increases every month, meanwhile my workload stays the same! Is that something that would appeal to you too?  If… Read the rest

Open for International Business

Open for International Business
It’s been a busy time creating and preparing new resources and thanks to a number of developments taking place in the background over the last couple of months, I can now help any new business start ups to create an international growing business from the moment they start. Network marketing has created millionaires for decades using local launch parties as their main business tool, and more lately through Facebook, however so many other options have opened up that don’t require you to speak infront of… Read the rest

Rush hour traffic dread

Rush hour traffic dread
For the first time in as long as I can remember, I need to drive in rush hour traffic tomorrow morning.  I’m taking a family member into the city for an appointment, then going to a meeting with my final marketing client, but as the appointment is first thing it means getting up when I’d usually be sleeping to sit in traffic for an hour and I’m dreading it! I forgot what it was like to dread rush hour and now I… Read the rest

Why I love working from home especially in January

Why I love working from home especially in January
It’s a cold, rainy Friday in January here and I’m enjoying a cosy afternoon working on my laptop with our dogs basking in the heat from the lit fire in front of me.  It wasn’t that long ago when I would have been counting the minutes to 5 O’clock so I could then drive for an hour and half in heavy traffic just to get home to a cold house and wish that one day, I could work from wherever… Read the rest

The benefits of an international business

The benefits of an international business
One of the benefits of an international business that I enjoy is the ability to generate international payments! I can receive a payment not just from the country where I live, but because I’m creating a system, it is working 24/7 so I don’t have to. Like any new business, the majority of the work is done in the beginning, setting it up and getting the momentum going. However once that’s done and you’ve learnt how to do it, it… Read the rest

What do you REALLY want to accomplish in 2017?

What do you REALLY want to accomplish in 2017?
Now that New Years Resolutions feel like a distant memory, it’s the perfect time to decide what you really want to accomplish this year.  The number one thing I hear most often is something that Santa can’t fit down the chimney – time!  We all spend it but we can’t get it back. Before I started this business, I agonized over the decision of time versus money regularly.  As a self-employed marketer, I could work every hour and have money… Read the rest

What do you want to achieve?

What do you want to achieve?
For many people, thinking about goals, aims and things they want to achieve this year, or in 10 years time is an activity reserved for New Years resolutions and then possibly forgotten about by 4th or even 5th January. When I work with new people, I show them that the importance of knowing their goals is similar to knowing the postcode or destination to put into your sat nav before leaving for a long trip. If it doesn’t know where to… Read the rest

Why you need a system to create work life balance

Why you need a system to create work life balance
You work, you sleep, you get paid at the end of the month, you get taxed, you pay your bills and hopefully there’s something left at the end to spend or save.  You rinse and repeat for 40 years working for someone else and hopefully you will have paid off the roof over your head in time to retire.  You hope that pensions exist when that time comes so you can finally get some free time and not have to work anymore. I… Read the rest

Making money for Christmas

Making money for Christmas
As Halloween displays are replaced by Christmas scenes in shops, thoughts turn to how to afford presents for family, friends and loved ones. While some savvy savers have been setting aside money each month to ensure this expenditure is covered, others turn to credit cards and put the impending January blues to the back of their mind in a ‘deal with it later’ mindset. There is however another way that I would love to share with you. It doesn’t involve… Read the rest
