Kentucky Moms Wowed By Drum Pumps (As Well They Should Be)

As a mom / owner of Kentucky real estate I very much appreciate the ability to store a drum pump in my garage. Owning a home allows a person to store all manner of possessions within the four walls of the structure. But the possession I would like to focus on in this blog post is the possession articulated in the title of this blog post. Now there are many reasons why storing a drum pump is a particularly good possession to store in a garage and describing why this is the case will be the primary purpose of the two paragraphs to follow.

THERE’S A DRUM PUMP IN MY GARAGE BY GOLLY!

The many millions of moms / owners of real estate in Kentucky who happen to love it as we do know full well why storing a drum pump in their garage is one of the best reasons to own a home in Kentucky (and love doing so in the process). For the benefit of those who own real estate in other states or who live in Kentucky but do not own the property on which they happen to live I shall endeavor to explain the benefits involved in this particular activity.

Now let us get to the meat and potatoes of this blog post. I shall not beat around the bush about this but rather get right into the substance as to why storing a drum pump within the garage of the real estate located in Kentucky that you happen to love. There is only a half of a paragraph left in which to impart this information so I imagine I better get to it soon otherwise there will not remain enough words to fully give this topic the attention it most definitely deserves. I owe this to all the loyal readers of this blog.

What Perks Do Get From Working at Home?

 

 

Scentsy consultant

Have you ever thought about working from home?  Are you worried about the kind of benefits you will either miss out on working in an office?  Well today is your lucky day.  I am here to tell you that while you might miss out on some of the benefits of being in an office there are many things that you can only get from working at home.  We will jump right into all the benefits that are awaiting you by working from home.

Going to the office everyday is great. Friends are made and their is someone to help you when you need it which is great.  Now take a minute and imagine waking up in the morning, rolling over and grabbing your computer and going right to work.  Personally I would much rather work in my bed, in cozy jammies.

One in ten workers in the United states work from home at least one day a week.  This leads to many benefits.  More time at home with family.  Working from home at least some days allows people to spend more time with children.  This leads to happier children and a better home life.  This also helps workers to be happier.  Many employees say that they have a better balance between work and personal life.

Working at home also helps save money and almost all stay at home workers reported that they ate better then they would if they worked in an office.  This is because most people have healthier food at home then they would get from a restaurant.  They also save more money because they are at home and don’t need to leave to get food.  Stressing about money causes many people stress.  Eating at home reduces spending and therefor reduces stress.

Lets talk about every bodies least favorite topic, traffic.  The worst part of any work day is the traffic on the way to or from the office.  Working from home eliminates the traffic part of the day, which is a given. Reducing the traffic on the road makes our earth happy.  By not having to drive, the amount of money spent on gas goes down.  The typical commuter spends one hundred and nine hours commuting.  With the typical commute being twenty-five minutes.  Imagine what you could do with all the time you would save for working at home.  The extra sleep you could get or spending more time with family.  To me that is the better way to spend time.

Many companies are now allowing people to work from home.  This means that all the perks that we have talked about in this post are just waiting for you. All you need to do is talk to your boss or supervisor.  There is a whole world of having a better balance between your home and work life.  What do you do if your boss says that there is no way that you can work from home there are other options out there.  There are other companies that your house is your office.  By joining Scentsy for example all the these perks will be yours.

Inspiring others by working from home

home2Finding a job that you love can be hard. Sometimes the hours are awful, but the working is great. Other times the people you work with are amazing, but the work itself is less then desirable. Don’t you wish there was a way to do something you loved, set your own hours, and still get paid. This is what many direct selling companies claim to give you. There is a product that you sell (which you love), you get to work when you want to, and get paid for sharing these products with people.

Scentsy is one of those direct selling companies that seem to have it all. When you join Scentsy you not only get a discount on your product but you earn commission on everything you sell to your friends, neighbors, or people on the street. Many direct selling companies have been around for a while, and Scentsy is starting to become one of those companies. For 10 years people have been joining Scentsy and increasing their income.

What are the benefits of working for yourself through direct sales?

Like mentioned before you are able to set your own hours and work when you want to work. If something comes up in your personal life you can make arrangements and not have to ask a boss for time off. Selling a product that you love is key. If you aren’t passionate about it then it will be much harder to sell. Find something that you love and your friends love too. If it seems like all your friends use the product then it makes sense to sell the product and feed their addiction. Having passion for the product you sell is also important so that way when things get tough you will be able to pull through and keep a positive attitude. Having a positive attitude is a must have when joining Scentsy or any other direct selling company. Every company has growing pains or goes through changes and by being able to look at the bright side or finding the positive in any situation will set you apart from all the other representatives out there. Another benefit is you get to set your own pay scale. What other job lets you do that? You decide how much you want to make. If it’s enough money to pay for your groceries, you can do that in 1-2 parties a month. If it’s to pay your mortgage you can do that in 4-5 parties a month. You can work as hard as you want and your efforts are rewarded.

Some of the not so obvious benefits of working for yourself though direct sales is the relationships that you will make. The person you sign up under becomes your life line and in many cases best friend. They are there for you when you have questions, you celebrate your highs and your lows, or just need someone to talk to. You also gain relationships with your customers. Helping people find their perfect product can turn into lasting friendships. It’s even more amazing when you decide to start recruiting people yourself and become a leader to others. You get to watch them change for the better. There is nothing more rewarding then to see someone who was struggling either financially, socially, or even emotionally and through your coaching they begin to shine. That’s the beauty of direct sales. It gives a person the tools they need to take control of their life. Maybe they need money to go on a family vacation. Maybe they are shy and need help coming out of their shell. Maybe they never had close friends and need a supportive community. When you join Scentsy or another direct sales company you get all of that at more. It’s one of the best career moves you can make. The best part is you can do if part time until you make enough money to do it full time. Little steps over time will prove to be big steps in the right direction in the end.

Finding the Balance

How many of you working moms have a hard time finding the balance between work and spending time with and taking care of your kids and family?  55% of working moms find that finding a balance is difficult and overwhelming.  There are two reasons why moms decide to go back to work.  The first being their family is in need of the finical help and the second reason is that moms do enjoy career and working.  How can we help these working moms?

Lets start by finding out what is the most important thing to these moms. The biggest thing that working moms need are flexible  hours so that they can be around to take kids to their activities or just to be there when they get home.  They also like the option to work from home.  Which would make sense.  Many moms given the choice would rather work from home if given the chance.  They also would like to have a generous maternity leave and on site day-cares.  To any employers reading this post, this could be a way that you help out the women working for you.  This could help them be more productive in the long run.

Women as we know are very social beings.  Many mothers feel that their co-workers understand their situation and are supportive.   Others say that their co-workers are supportive but don’t understand and the rest of these women said that their co-workers are indifferent to their situation.  We all have our own struggles let’s be supportive and help those around us.  Let’s get these moms the support they need.  There are also many other options for mom’s who need to work.

There are many companies like Scentsy that allow moms to work on their terms.  These companies can you be a stay at home mom but still be helping your family in terms of finances.

How Much Could You be Making?

Many of you have heard the saying that being a mom is a full time job.  Mom’s have so many roles to fill so let’s look at what they would get paid if they were being paid.  This post will break down the different roles of a mom and what they would get paid for what they do.

In 2014 it was found that mom juggle about 96.5 hours of work each week.  That is a whole lot of overtime.  So what are mom doing for all those hours.  Lets start with child care.  That is a mothers main role and is what most people would say takes up the most time.  Moms also teach basic skills like counting and saying the alphabet.  In a recent study it was found that moms spent 14.5 hours teaching these skills.  Most teachers would be paid a little over twelve dollars an hour.  I’ll leave the math to you.

Lets move on to the house hold chores.  Moms are the built in housekeepers moms and spend 14.6 hours cleaning their houses and doing laundry for their families.  If they hired a housekeeper they would be paying somewhere around ten dollars an hour.  Their is also cooking, moms are the chefs of the house. Moms will spend about 14.5 hours cooking.  A professional chef would get paid about fourteen dollars an hour.  Again the math is in your court.

There are also all the other things that moms do the driving and the janitor and the computer specialist.  And all of these would if hired out would be a good chunk of change.  If we add up all the jobs and the hours spent that would equal about forty hours.  Let’s not forget the additional 56.6 hours of overtime.  With all this added up that would put mom earning about $118,905.  So moms don’t forget how much you really are worth.  But because moms don’t get paid which is sad, there are many companies like Scentsy that can help.

What are Moms missing?

Working from home is a great way for moms with small children or children in general to add an extra income.  But what are moms missing by not going into a place of business? What would they miss at home if they did leave home to find a job?  In this post we are going to break down that information for you.

kentucky moms

Working from home has become a super convenient means for moms to add to the household income.  This allows them to still spend time with their children, while they are still able to work after bedtime or during nap-time. This alternative for moms is great but what are they missing by not entering into a place of business and staying home.  For one they miss the opportunity on health benefits.  Which can be monumental depending on the health care plan that is already set in the home.  They also miss out on the work place relationships.  Which as women can be very important, as we are very social beings.

What would moms being missing by leaving home to work?  They could very possibly be losing the chance to see some of life’s biggest moments for their kids.  Is that really worth the health care benefits?  I don’t think so.  They also miss out on the bonding time that comes from being home with your kids.  Is that worth the workplace relationships?  Is allowing a stranger or a family member to raise your children worth going into a place of business?  Would you want to miss out on those great moments?

Thanks to bushiness like Scentsy and other house hold companies moms can work from home.  By signing up to be a Scentsy consultant you too can work from home.  Take advantage of the resources available if not for yourself then for your children.

6 Things to do in your first 6 months of starting a business

Work-From-Home-MomSo you’re a mom, and you want to start a business. Especially one that you can stay at home with those cute kiddos of yours. But where do you start? There are a lot of work at home jobs that are still time demanding and make it so even though you are home you still have to work on someone else’s schedule. Starting a direct selling business like becoming a Scentsy Consultant or Avon Rep could be the way you want to go. When you have your own direct selling business you schedule when you want to work and when you are with your family. It’s a win win. So where do you start? Here are 7 tips that will help you get started during your first six months of business.

  1. Get Organized. I recommend getting a notebook, maybe a couple, to keep all your information in. You are going to have prospective customers and prospective team members that you will want to keep track of. Get a planner so you can schedule your time with your family and when you are going to work.
  2. See what other successful people are doing. Check out Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc. and find other people in you profession that are doing well. Follow them and see what they are doing. They became successful for a reason. If you do what they do there is no doubt that you will be successful too.
  3. Start talking about your business. If you don’t open your mouth and start talking about it no one will know that you are even doing a business. Put it out there on Social Media Platforms, tell your neighbors, family, friends, random people you see at the grocery store. The more you talk about it them more prospects you are going to have.
  4. Open a separate bank account. For tax purposes it makes it so much easier to have a separate bank account that is just for your business. This will help you to know what expenses you have, how much you make, and makes things easy to track.
  5. Find Support Groups online and in person. Many “teams” have team meetings that are great to go to. You learn so much from other people, find out what struggles they are having and what successes as well. If you can’t find a meeting place in your area, there are plenty of online groups. Facebook and Google plus have great groups for work at home moms as well as groups that are specific to your niche so if you are selling Avon there are tons of Avon groups. The same is said for Scentsy or any other direct selling company you may have joined.
  6. Make sure you schedule time for yourself. Being a mom is hard enough let alone trying to juggle a work at home job as well. Make sure you are take time to relax, spend quality time with your kids or your husband. Take time to read a good book, take a bubble bath, or do whatever you enjoy. Sometimes when you are first getting started you focus so much on your business and don’t focus on what is the most important.

I hope these tips are helpful and good luck with your new business. By using these tips you will get a good foundation to have a booming business.

Tips for Moms

Work from home with ScentsyWorking from home can be an amazing opportunity until you through your children into the mix. They create a much more difficult environment. Work from home jobs come in lots of different varieties, telecommuting, direct sales like Scentsy Wickless Candles, and so much more but they all present challenges when kids run around your home. Here are a few tips to making working from home with kids just a little simpler.

Set a schedule for yourself – Kids thrive on schedules and routines, be consistent in your weekly schedule. Have a designated space and time of when you work. Your kids will catch on very quickly that mom is working during that time.

Get your kids involved – This isn’t always the easiest thing to do if your children are young but when possible get your kids involved in your business. Have them label things or organize your desk. (It doesn’t have to be directly related to your business but if they feel like they are helping mom they will enjoy you working) Consider having a babysitter come over while you work. Then it gets them out of your space and they think it’s pretty awesome too, win/win!

Use nap time wisely – It is very tempting to use this time to clean up your house or take a nap yourself but if you can maximize your time while they are sleeping you will be much more productive.

Step outside – Working from home can be stressful for you and your kids at times. It is okay to take an afternoon, a day, or even a week off and spend some time outside with the kids every so often. This releases some of the pressure from you and eases the tension around the house. One thing to take note of is focus on what you are doing. If you take a day off to be with the kids, be with the kids. Not answer phone calls or just on your laptop really quick. Stay focused on what you are doing.

Confidence – You have to embrace the simple truth: I can do this. It is an adjustment and you have to be diligent with your time and kids but with a little bit of practice you can have an amazing work from home job where you can make good money.

Mom to Entrepreneur – What is changing in the work at home workplace

Scentsy consultantThe role of mom is changing from what it was years ago. The role of a mother used to be staying at home, taking care of the kids, husband, house work, cleaning, mending, paying bills, etc. Now as a mom you still do all those things but there has been a shift in roles. Mom’s now want or need to work to help support their husband’s in this crazy expensive world yet still want to be home with their children so the work a home mommy was born. Moms now can have the best of both worlds. They can stay at home, take care of their children, take them to soccer practice, get dinner on the table and even fold a load of laundry while maintaining a successful business. There are many forms of the work at home mom. Some moms decide to work for call centers that let you work from home, some start their own blog network, and others start their own networking business through multi-level marketing like Scentsy, Mary Kay, or Avon.

There was a study done that asked work at home moms about what got them started and what was their motivation for making this transition from mom to work at home mom. The majority of moms – 64% in fact – said that they started their business to help other people. Whether it be a blog about losing weight, sharing products to help others lives better, or helping people learn skills, these work at home moms wanted to be the ones to share their great ideas and products with others. So when does this need to help others start? Of the work at home moms interviewed 38% of them came up with their idea to work at home after their child was a toddler. This makes sense because moms are usually in baby mode and are taking care of the needs of a new life. Only 11% came up with their idea when their baby was less than 6 months old.

It costs money to start up any new business. The good news for moms that want to become an entrepreneur is it doesn’t have to cost much. If you were to buy a franchise of a company it could cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars. Moms that start their own businesses spend just a fraction of that. Starting a blog or joining a multi-level marketing business can cost as little as $99. Most people make that back in their first month. When asked, 76% of these work at home moms used their personal savings to start up their business or market their big idea. Only 2% used credit cards or loans to get started.

How do these moms do it? Being a mom is a full time job in and of itself. Over two-thirds of these work at home moms say that they have a better work and family life balance than they did working for someone else. They have to plan and schedule their day, but that makes them more productive to get things done. An astounding 80% of these work at home moms say they do their “jobs” not only for the monetary benefit but because it is emotionally fulfilling as well. So if you are thinking about becoming a work at home mom, look at your options and try one out.
