The Ultimate Secrets Mommy Mall and The Ultimate Ad Spot

These sites were all created with WAHMs and small homed based businesses in mind. As a stay at home mom, Ruby understands the struggle of trying to run a home based business and raise kids. Therefore, she feels the need to help others with her knowledge of launching a successful busy also.

As a WAHM herself , she learned how important direct marketing is for growing your business. Getting your samples and products actually INTO consumers hands is CRUCIAL to growing your customer base and increasing your downline.

Think about your last purchase. Did you just go out and spend $50 on a perfume or cosmetic product just because you seen a commercial? Or did you actually look at the product, read the ingredients, smell the perfume? Most consumers want to know the product before spending a big amount on it. That is where we come in. Secret Samplers allows consumers to sample NAME brand products for a fraction of the price!

Wish You were an Octopus?

I’ve been seeing a recurring theme addressed among the business mom groups that I belong to—the all encompassing battle with trying to stay organized and getting all the things you have to get done in order to balance family life and business life at home.

 

And as I sit to write this article, I’m reminded of an image of a mommy octopus whose tentacles are busy handling chores simultaneously—all in one swoosh she’s washing dishes, changing diapers, ironing clothes, cooking dinner, sweeping floors, putting laundry away, answering the phone, and maybe handing out a business card—Oh if it was all that simple…but since we don’t have an extra 3 pair of hands….

 

Here are 10 simple things to help keep us organized:

 

1-                 Write down your goals and your things to do list

2-                 Schedule time to do your business tasks/chores

3-                 Schedule different time slots to do your family tasks/chores (if you have children who are at the age to help with household tasks make sure you get them to help (your goal as a parent is to also make your kids self-sufficient and this is how it begins)

4-                 Make sure to put time in the schedule to promote your business

5-                 Keep a separate business list and family/household list

6-                 Have a business space that is separate and apart from the public family space

7-                 Stay tuned in to like-minded positive thinking business folks

8-                 Research and read on how to organize yourself—you have to be taught, it’s not automatic

9-                 Take the time to regroup: keep the things that work for you and stop doing what doesn’t work

10-               Pace yourself—take the time to relax when you need to so you can revitalize and do it all over again the next day, and the next week, and the next month, and so on and so on.

 

So just stay focused and don’t give up your dream.

I slept in today! yeah!

You don't understand..I hardly ever get to do that. My 3 darling little 21-month old boys decided to wake up this morning at 2am and I had to get them backto sleep but nooooooooooo they don't fall asleep intheir cribs--is that normal?

I had to lift them up and take them to their playroom to sleep on the floor on their blanket. And so 2 (Ethan and Noah) fell back to sleep reasonably fast-- but as for Josh who fights his sleep--we were in for a battle. So finally at I don't know what time he drifts off to sleep. I stumble back to my bed...yes I left them sleeping on the floor. No way am I going to try to move them back to their cribs--it's 3 of them remember--and I'm exhausted, I might drop one.

Anyway I fell asleep right away and this morning I wake up and yipee!! they are already fed and playing and it's almost 10am in the morning...am I dreaming? This never happens...but sweet hubby allowed me to sleep and now I feel so energized. Sleep, how we take it for granted.

Well what will we do today? petting zoo? park? adventures to follow....

More Networking Groups for WAHMs

So I finally have a few minutes to myself. It's almost 9pm and I just put the last baby down to sleep. Ok let me continue to tell you about 2 other networking groups:

 

Momdot.com is a networking group of moms who blog. They blog about everything-the cat that threw up on....; the child who threw a phone in the toilet; the mom who lost her kid in a nano second and is frantically searching; and in between all that blogging about stuff all moms go through there is also time to blog about your business and network to grow your business. The members' personal and professional life will be featured and the mommy universe continues as usual...oh yeah my cat just threw up on the rug.

Visit this blogging networking group at www.momdot.com And Oh yeah it's free to join...so what are you waiting for?

 

The second group is Frugal WAHM Advertising. It's also free to join and their mission is to provide reasonable advertising for the WAHM business-oh Dads and crafters are welcome too. This network is a division of Frugal WAHM Talk Radio-so if you join you'll also get the chance to be featured on their radio show-your shot to become famous. Visit this group at www.frugalwahmadvertising.com

 

Gotta go clean up that mess now...yeah it's a cliche but like they say a woman's work is never done.
