Achieve Financial Freedom by Starting a Franchise

The role of the entrepreneur is pivotal to our local, regional, and national economies, especially in these challenging times when job creation is at a premium. Apart from the natural fondness that communities have for their mom-and-pop establishments, small business owners are extremely important because of their profound impact on the success of a community. Economic studies show that companies with no more than 500 employees are credited for half of the US gross domestic product (GDP), generate more than 60% of the total number of new jobs created since 1993, and employ 50% of the private sector workforce.

Why Do I Blog, What are My Goals?

Welcome to my first time participating in a blog hop with MomDot and other fabulous bloggers. This week we are talking about blog goals; why is it we started blogging in the first place and what are our goals? Why Did I Start Blogging?

Working from home carries a larger stress load than most out of  home jobs. The reason for my opinion on this is because I have seen parents who get to leave the house for work carry some stress but still be able to leave the house, go to work at a set time, come home at a set time and shut off from work to be the parent. Someone who works from home never really gets to log in and out of work. Work is always staring you right in the face. From your SmartPhone to your home computer or […]

I usually remain a pretty positive person, I enjoy time with my children and am thankful that I am able to work from home so that I enjoy the daytime hours with my three children.

Work is in your face every moment of every day, because your computer is in your home and that is where you work from. With  my family currently facing an extreme […]

Some Things Best Left Unsaid

I have a confession to make; I tell the whole truth, beyond the truth with more details than I really need to say. I suggest that this beyond truth telling is simply adding more details to a simple truth than need be. I know that many enjoy my honesty and outspoken nature but sometimes it simply gets me into situations where I wish I hadn’t said anything at all, or at least without so many details. You see when someone is asking you about what you do from home or how much money you make they really do not need […]
