6 Common Goal Setting Mistakes and How to Overcome Them

Are you ready to make your goals come to life this year? If so, you'll want to prepare yourself for these six common goal setting mistakes.

When it comes to goals, I’m addicted. I’ve been setting goals for years and have accomplished a lot because of the fact. I’ve also made tons (and then tons more) of goal setting mistakes and have learned what I need to do to get past them.

Since the New Year is coming up I thought it would be a great time to go over the big goal setting mistakes and how you can overcome them. (And to also remind myself of my biggest weaknesses!)

A Day in the Life – Working From Home

Ever wonder what a work from home day would be like? As a freelance writer, blog manager, and mom of two, here's how my typical work from home day goes.

Around this time last year I did a post on what it’s like working from home with kids. During this time of year, when the weather starts to get bad, I do keep my kids home a lot. That’s because I’m petrified of driving in the snow! Always have been.

So far this year we’ve been pretty lucky. The roads have only been bad about three days so the girls are still going to school (Kailyn) and the babysitter (Ava) during the day.

A Guide to Last-Minute Christmas Shopping

Are you like me with Christmas shopping STILL left to do even though we're only days away from Christmas? If so, check out my plan of attack for last-minute Christmas shopping!

This post is brought to you by Shop at Home. All opinions are honest and 100% my own!

Christmas is thirteen days away. That seems so surreal right now. I just cannot believe it!

While I had every intention of being done with my Christmas shopping by now the truth is I’m only half way there.

Ava (my youngest daughter) was easy. If it has Dora on it she loves it! Kailyn however, is now much harder. Since her birthday was just last week she’s gotten everything she’s asked for, which wasn’t a whole lot to begin with.

Is Working From Home Stuffing Envelopes Legit? Here’s How it Works….

You've seen the ads "work from home and make hundreds of dollars a day!" But is working from home stuffing envelopes legit? Here's how it REALLY works.

For some reason I get a real kick out of investigating work from home jobs. Well, really curiosity just kills me.

I know better than to believe an ad that says “Make hundreds of dollars a day in mere minutes placing ads on the internet.” I know it’s a scam. But I just want to know how the scam works! (And after digging up the dirt on the posting ad companies someone actually left me a comment talking about how legitimate these companies really were. Give me a break.)

How I Became a Work from Home Single Mom

Do you want to become a work from home single mom? Here's my story of how I made that happen. It wasn't easy but if I can do it so can you!

In the past couple of week I’ve been asked several times by several different people how they can work from home.

Long time readers know that I don’t hold much back when it comes to that. I’ve told you exactly how I’ve found my jobs, what works for me, and even how much money I make. It’s taken me two years to get to where I’m at today and I still have a long ways to go.

Making money from home isn’t easy but I truly believe that if you’re willing to really dedicate yourself that you can do it too. (And no, you don’t need a college degree!)

When Your Kids Just Won’t Listen…..

Here are five things to try when your kids just won't listen

This isn’t the type of post that I’d normally share here. However, as a mother I’ve been facing a lot more struggles over the past month than I have in a long time and as I’ve started to nip this problem in the bud I thought this could be helpful to other parents going through this same thing.

My normal well-behaved, would-never-do-anything-she-thought-was-wrong, almost six year old daughter has turned into the biggest smart mouth you can imagine over the past month.
