Great Direct Sales Trainers to Follow!

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen!!

I thought it would be helpful if I collected together all the amazing people I follow to help keep my business moving forward.  This list will be for the people I either follow on social media or get their e-mails regularly.  Take a look at what the offer and see if you see information you like than start following and see what you can learn!

Try not to go crazy signing up for every e-mail list! This can really clog up your inbox and becomes another distraction! I personally have other folders and rules set up so these informative e-mails go right to the training folder and I can look at them on my schedule.

Who Do I Follow and gain great information from?? Continue reading

Year in Review! One Year of Blogging… A to Z Challenge

I can’t believe it has been a year since I started blogging. A lot has happened in that year, I survived HORRIBLE morning sicknesshad a baby, threw a few Birthday parties, started planning my wedding, joined my first A to Z challenge and so much more.
Blogging Research Wordle

What have I learnt? That morning sickness and blogging don’t mix, ;). But really I discovered that I love blogging. I hope that it is something I can continue to do and enjoy. Now if only my hubby could see it as a job he might let me spend more time on it. This year I am setting a goal to get my blog out there and share it with more people.

Do you have any goals for the next year?

 

This post has been posted during the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge.  It’s letter…..

How I Named My Blog

Trying to start and name a blog is no simple task. And deciding to do it was something I never thought I would do. However, I have been trying to sort out how I was going to get our lives in order. I tried a few different things but none of them have worked, most likely because I am such a procrastinator.  I would make plans to try something and never actually get to it. 🙂

Somehow the idea of tracking it all caught my attention. Then I was thinking about how I would stay on track, well if everyone knew what I was up to than I would have people keeping tabs on me. An extra incentive to get things done.
The answer to start a blog came from so many different areas. But the hard part came when I realized I had to get creative and come up with a name! This took some time, I checked out things on-line, found a post with top blog names, and found ideas about what to include and what NOT to include.

So I made a list of the things I plan to blog about.
Kids
Dogs
Ways to save Money
Staying at home with the kids
All things around the house
Recipes and meal ideas
Pinterest stuff
Elimination Communication

So something about being a cheap mom 🙂
I discovered you want something catchy and easy to remember, and that no one was already using. I spent a few days thinking about this. I thought about using our last name as I saw some neat blogs that did that. Voyce, The voyce of …….. Total Blank. Plus I don’t want it too long, and how could I make it clear that I am a stay at home mom blogger? So I thought cheap, nicer word, frugal! YES Frugal Mom, OK that already exists. Can’t copy her. 🙁 What about Frugal stay at home mom, I did not like the way it sounded.

I was stuck, I really like the word frugal, as it doesn’t sound cheap but very clear you like to save money. I am also a stay at home mom and plan to stay that way. These things are the main part of what I will be writing about so I decided I had to get them into the name. I searched online for another way to say stay at home mom. (Have I mentioned I search the web for LOTS of stuff)
I did not like any of the options I found – homemaker, professional parent, domestic engineer, housewife. Nothing suited what I was trying to say. I spend everyday, 24 hours, with my baby taking care of the house is my full time job! Hmmm I’m a full time mom! I liked it, but Full Time Mom could be anything, and I wanted to stand out. I am a Frugal Full Time Mom!

Whats In A Name

Whats In A Name

I did a google search and no one was using the name, even checked twitter and facebook too. So I made it official, I started on twitter 🙂 Than I started the website, and have been going from there, trying to get things in order. At least if someone searches they will find me! The first step has been made, now the possibilities are endless!

If you are interested in what other steps I took to get things in order please leave a comment below and let me know I would be happy to share more.

So I have decided to start a Blog!

So I have decided to start a blog! Maybe it’s the idea that I can make friends with people I don’t know in real life. Or maybe it’s that I can stay connected with the people in my life that I don’t get to see as much as I would like. Life with kids never lets us connect with the ones we want, does it? you would rather nap than pick up the phone to chat 🙂

This “entry” was going to be about trying to name my blog (I will write that one later) but I just got home from visiting a family member in the hospital. And now I think I am going to write about that. Cause they say to write how you feel right? This family member is currently critically ill with a life-threatening illness. When I first saw them I almost passed out 🙁 I have never seen anyone in that kind of condition. It was very difficult. ). They were on deaths doorstep and have come such a long way. For that we are grateful, it was a true miracle. Still a LONG road to recovery but I’m sure they will pull through and be home before we know it 🙂

It gets you thinking, when someone that close to you is in such condition, how much time do we have. I always say we never know if we will still have tomorrow, but do I actually believe it? If today was my last day would it be a good one. Will I have done what I wanted to? The scary answer is no 🙁

This is why I have decided to start this blog. I always say later I will get that organized, next week I will go visit (so-and-so) Next month we can take care of that project. But later, next week, and next month come and go, did I do what I had set off for another time, usually the answer is no. So now I am going to track what I do, and get it done. Hopefully there are others (maybe you?) who are thinking the same thing and afraid to start. Well if I can do it ANYONE can. Lets start this together and before you know it we will be the people we really want to be!

Promise every entry will not be so heavy 🙂
