Thinking About Writing Freelance?

Wanna work from home? No this is not another make money quick idea. There is truly a way to make money from home; however, it is not easy at first and you will have to work for it. If you love to write then you should consider getting into the world of freelance writing.

There is a lot of sweat, tears, and over time in the beginning while you are building your business; however, it does pay off in the end. Just stick it out and do your thing.

Working at home is a wonderful opportunity- but it does require effort and hard work to get going. Once you are rolling all the hard work will seem like it was nothing. Sort of like giving birth lol. Once that baby is born you forget all about the pain and pregnancy... Well its not quite as painful but you know what I mean.

Listed below are some tips I would like to share:
  • Go check out eWriters Central for tips, leads, and a plethora of information.
  • Follow the leads on eWriters Central and Join freelance writing sites and then apply, apply, apply.
  • When you start getting jobs blow them out of the water! Write like you are writing for your life.You want those customers to return and suggest you to their friends.
  • Stay organized and on target. I write all my projects in a calendar and then highlight them when complete.
  • Work on one project at a time until you get a good handle on things. You DO NOT want to mix up projects.

    There is a lot of leg work in the beginning. It is all worth it though. So go to look through their leads and then ROCK IT!

    Go Green with Baby!

    I have found this great site that makes baby items from Bamboo! They are reducing our planets footprint by using bamboo instead of cotton. Did you know that cotton plantations account for 25% of our planets insecticide use and that pesticides are the most harmful chemical on the planet? It is rumored that the clothing industry is one of the most polluting industries there is.

    Not only will you be easy on the planet but bamboo fiber/fabric is soft and highly absorbent. Bamboo fabric is very soft and many people who have allergic reactions to many other fabrics can wear bamboo with no issues. Another plus to bamboo is that it has antibacterial qualities which helps to reduce bacteria that lives on clothing. I can't think of anything better for babies skin. Can you?

    Shoo-foo offers disposable/biodegradable wipes, hats, sleepers, burp towels, and much more! They also have towels and linens that are made of bamboo as well! Check out their products by clicking on the image below. Go green with us!

    Send Out Cards...Really Great Idea!

    This is really great idea! Check it out! -The information below was sent to me from a Send Out Cards Representative.

    We have become so use to emailing everything, letters, newsletters and now even birthday cards or any other greeting card. There are tons of ways to send greeting cards online like Send Out Cards and it seems that with all the junk emails, there are a lot that are deleted before they are ever seen.

    When was the last time you received a greeting card in the mail and in your email like Send Out Cards? Which one made more of an impression? If your answer is the real card that came in the mail, then you are like everyone else.

    But we have become so use to just clicking on something, hitting the send button, or typing in a web address to get things done. It seems that going to the Post Office is a major project and so inconvenient. Besides, who wants to spend an hour waiting in line at the post office.

    Send Out Cards is a company that will give you the opportunity to be one of the few who sends out the "real" cards, delighting every recipient of a fun, creative, personal and signed card. This is a great tool to help you get the cards sent out on time, not having to worry about missing those important dates of your family and friends.

    You are able to send a printed greeting card, with your own personal message. You can choose it, write your message and click send all within 60 seconds. Send Out Cards will print it, stuff it and mail it for you. And these will all cost you less than it would be at a greeting card store.

    Imagine the work saved for you at Christmas time, sending out your cards, with even a family picture if you like, with just a click. You can be a part of this system by having your own business at home.
    The only purchase you will need to make is the Send Out Cards distributor kit. There is no product to be purchased, your presentation folder will be in your kit. You will have your own website which will include order and credit card processing. You will also get product samples and instructions.

    There are seven ways to earn with Send Out Cards:

    1. Customer Direct Sales Profits: You will have a card bank of cards where your retail customer will shop. The customer pays you directly and for the use of the system. You will have sold the customer an Annual Account Pre-Paid Greeting Card. This account is used to purchase the card and stamps.

    2. Retail profits from Preferred customers (paid monthly) Purchases are credited to your account. Volume commissions are paid on the points that are sold.

    3. Coaching Bonus from New Distributor accounts (paid weekly basis) A customer can purchase a Wholesale Package Plus for $298, and receive a coaching session from you. You will receive $120 bonus after coaching is completed.

    4. Coaching Bonus from New Distributor accounts (paid weekly) when someone in your group purchases the Entrepreneur Pkg Plus for $398, you will provide the coaching for them and receive a $120 bonus. And if there is coaching done in your down line, you can receive a bonus from $15 to $50 per coaching session.

    5. Treat em Right Seminar Bonus (paid weekly) You will receive a bonus when reps in your group attend this seminar. The bonus ranges from $5 to $30 per attendee.

    6. 7-level Volume Bonus: paid on the greeting cards that are sold in your entire group (paid monthly)

    7. Leadership Volume Bonus: this is paid on greeting cards sold on unlimited levels within your group. Ranges between 5% and 25% depending on ranks of leadership.

    You can take advantage of this new trend and have your own business at home by working with Send Out Cards. Check it out at Don’t delay do it right now.

    Honey! Honey! Honey!

    With all this crazy weather I have seen lots of my friends and their children are sick. I personally use honey to keep my family healthy. That's right plain simple honey! The kids don't even realize they are being medicated naturally! Not only is honey good for keeping away general sickness but there is plenty of health benefits which are listed below:

    1. Prevents Cancer and heart disease
    2. Reduce Ulcers (Good for Jeremy-With all of us I am sure he has ulcers lol)
    3. Increases Athletic Performance (Good for Alicia and Justin)
    4. Anti-fungal
    5. Reduces Cough
    6. Soothes Sore Throats
    7. Regulates Blood Sugars
    8. Heals Burns and Cuts- External use

    Honey Suggestions:
    If you want to benefit from honey, make sure what you purchase is pure and raw. Raw honey contains vitamins, minerals, and other goodies.

    I of course recommend Natural B Honey! I always have great service and my honey is yummy! You can view their great products and options by clicking on their logo below:

    Want to start using honey and not sure what to order? Check out some of their best sellers:

    If you have any questions or want further information feel free to comment below. Also leave a comment if you have a use for Honey that I left out! 

    Want more information on honey? Please visit the Natural B-Honey's Blog:

    Honey Cautions:
    Honey is a natural sugar and therefore has a significant calorie count! (Just saying)
    If you have a child of less than 1 year old is better not to give it honey because there are some risks involved. After 1 year is more than welcomed to enjoy and grow with honey!
