Working From Home: My Thoughts and Advice

There are many times when my friends on Facebook ask about my working from home. They love seeing how I get compensated to try new things, to cover events and to simply write working from home. It’s difficult for me to push working from home in any way other than simply being honest. What I do, I have been doing since 2006, granted the majority of what I do to earn income started in 2008.

More Hours To Work, But Still Feel Rushed #wahm

In 2006 I started working from home. I am a determined person and once my mind is set on something, I always succeed. It does not matter what it is, I am stubborn, willful and always end up succeeding in whatever my mind knows I will succeed in. Maybe that has a little bit to do with how my brain works, which is very similar to the Law of Attraction with a side of new found faith. From 2006 up until just last week, I always had to work around my children’s school schedules. I started off with one boy […]

I can be what some call a pushover mom or a softy with some things that have to do with parenting my children, or being in charge of any children for that matter. I firmly feel that there is a different between choosing when you can be somewhat “soft” and when you have to be firm with a child. The theme that comes to mine is “pick your battles”, obviously if you have said no and the child continues to ask why or debate the topic with you then you stand firm. With that being said if you chose not […]

Trying to Get Back on Schedule

I have to laugh at myself because I am often saying how I am not routine driven, that I am a free spirit and not a planner but then things happen to mess up my normal schedule or routine that set me off for a loop, taking me a long time to get back on track.

I am.Totally. 100% routine driven. So when […]

Totally Self Disciplined and Focused and Dare I Say Crazy?

I would love to know who I should thank in my family for my self disciplined personality and driven to succeed attitude? Maybe that is all me. Maybe I am a self taught awesome work from home woman, but I think some has to be credited to my parents as well as grandparents and aunt for pushing me to be who I can be. All I can be. I was the first born and a lot of responsibility was placed on my shoulders. My Dad is pretty laid back but always used to refer to me as the responsible child. […]

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?

The problem was, this just wasn’t me any more. I knew there had to be more out there for me […]

Call Center Outsourcing, Great Job Option for Moms

When I first starting thinking about ways to work from home, working for a customer service call center was certainly one of my first thoughts. Being a customer service call center employee is a great way for many to start their working ventures.

When you work for a call center, most places will allow you the option to do inbound or outbound calls. Inbound calls means that you will have a schedule where […]
