You’ve heard all the claims before I’m sure. Make millions selling on ebay, make millions working from home on the internet. Yes, most of those claims are false, it takes a lot of work and time to make any money online, there’s way to many scams and things out there that discourage people from actually taking an idea and running with it to make some great income. A lot of people are surprised with how much I make online doing various things, there’s a way to go about doing it, and a way not to.
A great book I was introduced to recently helps those out there who really want to make some great income on the internet. I’m still reading through my copy, but so far, there’s been some great and helpful advice and chapters on how to actually make a profitable income online with the right skill and the right tools.

I am really into this book right now, I’m intrigued by having my own online business and this book so far is giving some great insight on the right way to do it to be profitable. This isn’t a book about how to “Get Rich Quick”, it’s a great read for those who are serious about making any profit online with a business. I should be through the entire thing very soon, but wanted to let you all know about it while it was fresh in my mind. Especially for us bloggers looking to turn a profit and making our blog just the beginning of a business venture, I would recommend this book highly!
I almost forgot to mention that Scott’s book has been the #1 best seller on both Amazon.com’s E-Commerce list and High Tech Careers list, his book Internet Riches has also been the #1 best seller in the UK as well on Amazon.co.uk’s E-Commerce list, so you know this is a great book to have if your looking at an online venture and how to make money with it.
You can buy Internet Riches online at Amazon.com and while your there, check out all the great and rave reviews this book has received.

I was introduced to a site recently called Babysteals.com and what a great site it is, daily BabySteals offers baby and maternity products as a ‘deal of the day’. What they do is offer one quality baby or maternity product per day until it sells out. And it’s not just junk that they have for sale, they actually offer popular and name brand baby and maternity products at 50 – 80% off the retail price.
Each day at 9am MST a new item is put up on the site and remains for sale until they are sold out. I wish I had known about this site when I was pregnant or needing baby items, I’ve looked around for a few days and the things they do put up are just a great deal, even with shipping.
Some of the products they’ve offered have been from well-known companies such as BabyLegs, Aden+ Anais, Signing Time, Melissa & Doug, Smart mom Jewelry, Dwell Studios and many many more. You need to be on your toes if you want to snag one of their daily deals though. 85% of the time, their deals sell out within the first two hours that they’re posted.
If your in the market for a good deal on baby or maternity items, be sure to check out www.babysteals.com on a daily!

Part of being a mom and wife is my daily duty of dish washing. Not the best part of the job, nor is it the most fun part of the job, but it’s something that has to be done on the daily, usually multiple times, and although I do have the convenience of a dishwasher, it just doesn’t do the job half the time. With so many dishes, it often makes you wonder, once the dishes are all scrubbed and cleaned, dried and put away, what exactly happens with the soapy, yucky dishwashing water that runs down the drain?
It’s not really something thought about by most in the past, but in this day and age, and with all our concerns about being ‘green’ and ‘eco-friendly’ a lot of these thoughts run through our mind right now. What goes down our household drains plays a big part with the impact of our environment and our quality of life. Clorox wants to help, and has introduced a great line of cleaning products called Green Works which strives to make it easier and more affordable for everyday families to hop on the ‘green’ train and start treating our earth right.
Green Works is a great line that carries household cleaners that work while using all natural, plant-based ingredients like coconuts and lemon oil therefore making their products biodegradable. Thanks to Mom Central, I recently had the chance to try out their Green Works Natural Dishwashing Liquid and it lives up to the Clorox name. It cuts through grease and baked-on food while having a nice refreshing scent. My dishes came out nice and clean and it’s nice to know that I’m playing my part to keep this earth just a little greener by using this product.
Green Works supports the efforts of the Sierra Club and wants to conserve clean air, water, and wildlife. Each of their Green Works line products also displays the Sierra Club logo. The EPA has also recognized Green Works Natural Dishwashing Liquid for using environmentally preferred chemistry and their logo is also proudly displayed on the Green Works products. Green Works Dishwashing Liquid comes in five scents: Original, Water Lily, tangerine, Fee & Clear and Simply Lemon. Although I’ve only gotten to try their Original scent, I can’t wait to try out the others as well, I’m sure they’ll have the light delightful scent just the same.
So, the next time you’re on your next grocery trip, or looking for some more dishwashing soap, be sure to check out the new Clorox Green Works Dishwashing Liquid and be a little greener yourself.

Things seem to be moving, maybe it’s not as fast as we’d like or as much money as we’d like, but Rodney’s job search is progressing.
He’s now done a 3rd interview with a company today, this is the company we are crossing our fingers for. He also just got a job offer today from another company, now it’s not nearly as much money as he was making before, but who’s to say he still can’t look if he accepts the offer. He also has a 2nd follow-up interview on Wednesday with another company and this company makes more money than the one who just gave him a job offer, but still less than what he was making.
So, he’s making progress, at least we’ll have some money coming in one way or another soon. We just keep hoping and praying that the first job, the one he just did the 3rd interview for comes through, that job would be a dream come true. Great pay, great benefits, at home office and only traveling overnight 2-3 days a week (which is great compared to his old job), the one common thing with all these new job prospects that is great. They’re all Monday to Friday 9-5 jobs essentially. Rodney’s last job was basically a 7am – 1am job 7 days a week. It was horrible.
So along with the new job search, comes a new look. My husband is a hottie!!! Rodney has had the same pair of glasses for exactly 6 years now, I remember he bought them just before we got married (and our anniversary is on Sunday the 24th). He also had LOTS of hair. He’s grown his hair out for a while now, for work he’d usually slick it back into a pony tail, but for the pic, he combed it all out. He’s also always had a beard as well, I mean he never had to look compleatly professional, his last job he ran a district and all the stores in his district were in truck stops, so you can imagine… He’s cleaned himself up, has a new hair cut, new glasses, and he’s lookin mighty fine and very professional now.
What do you think of the ‘transformation’?????
I’m off for the weekend guys, we’re thinking about just taking off to Canada to go visit my folks, but we’re not 100% on that yet, it’s the weekend, no one will call with job prospects but our luck for one reason or another someone will, so we might just stick around here.
Have a great one!
