Are You a WAHM or Blogger? Bundle Sale for Entrepreneurs!

Are You a WAHM or Blogger?

You know, most entrepreneurs feel discouraged by how they’re doing in at least one (if not more) of these areas:

1. They don’t feel like they have enough time to do everything necessary to make their business successful. (Yeah, this is me in spades)
2. The budget is tight and there’s not enough money to invest into growth. (Just had to replace our vehicle, so yep on this count as well)
3. They lack organization in their business, which leads to a lack of confidence in themselves. (I could be more organized …)
4. Amidst all that, they find it hard to take good care of themselves and their families, which can mean ruin for the business and family. (Add homeschooling into the mix and this can be downright hard!)

And that’s why I’m so incredibly excited to support The Ultimate Startup Bundle (2016 Edition) from the Ultimate Bundles team.

It’s a curated collection of 70 eBooks and eCourses to give you the resources, inspiration, and encouragement you need to help you win at startup and business.

With this bundle of resources, you’ll find solutions to the above problems and more. You’ll learn:

  • how to create a marketing plan that means real growth for your business (even if you’re starting from scratch)
  • growth hacks to help you generate traffic and leads, and turn leads into sales and happy customers
  • systems and processes for automating and scaling your business (so you can either spend more time on high-value activities … or simply relax and enjoy more time with your family)
  • plus, something special for you — FREE access to some of the best-in-class software for starting and growing your business (which means you don’t even need to spend an extra dime out of pocket to get started making money today!)
  • and tons more …

If you decide not to get this bundle (or you run out of time to grab it before it goes away), you run the risk of staying stuck and discouraged – always feeling that you should be making changes in yourself or your business, but not being aware of how easy those changes can be when you have the right resources to learn from!

And remember: it’s not even like this product is expensive! (Not like all those courses being pitched these days for hundreds or thousands of dollars!!)

For the price of a nice meal out for two (with wine of course), you get over 60 eBooks and eCourses plus a whole bunch of software bonus products that will feel like icing on the cake.

The combined value of the resources is over $3,300 – which means you get a 97% discount when you buy today! If you ask me, it’s a small price to pay. These bonuses are worth the cost of the bundle alone!

Tap here to take a look at everything that’s included in the bundle, including products from big names like Zig Ziglar and Michael Hyatt, for only $97 US!

P.S. Act by August 4th and you get a special early bird bonus with The Ultimate Startup Bundle – the 20-week Startup Accelerator Program!

2 Things to Do for Yourself on Mother’s Day

As a mother, especially as a homeschooling mother, it can be easy to get frustrated, discouraged, and downright grumpy. With your kids stuck to you most every moment of the day and the homeschool year still dragging on, it can be hard to keep perspective on it all. Why did you decide to be a SAHM or a WAHM? Why on earth did you start homeschooling anyway?

2 Things to Do for Yourself on Mother’s Day

There are two things I try to do for myself every year and they both involve reading, something I find very difficult to ferret out time to do these days (as a homeschooling WAHM)! Mother’s Day is the perfect time to treat yourself! You can even sit back in a bubble bath and read (my personal favourite) or tell your family you’re going to the local coffee shop for an hour. So, what should you read to get some perspective and stay refreshed?

1) Read a book about parenting. We’re all parents first, regardless of how or where are children are learning. It can be easy to feel like nobody else is going through the same challenges with their kids. Reading a parenting book can remind you that we ALL go through those challenges! And even more important, you’re not a bad parent because your children aren’t perfect Stepford children! Mine sure aren’t. To my horror, one of them even turned into a fairly typical teenager, ack!

Reading a parenting book also reminds me of all those little skills or tricks I have learned in the past and have someone forgotten to use. This includes, listening to my kids and getting their eye contact and/or putting a hand on their shoulder before requesting something of them. It’s easy to be so focused on what needs to be done that we forget about connecting! This year, I’m already reading great parenting books from the parenting section of the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle.

Because I’ve been more of a grumpy mom than a great one recently, I’m starting with From Grumpy to Great.

2) Read a book about homeschooling. Even if you’ve been homeschooling for ten years like me, reading a book about homeschooling can not only refresh you, but give you new ideas. Most of the time I like to read a book I’ve never read before, but sometimes I will pick up old favourites like The Well-Trained Mind and read over their personal stories to give me a boost.

This year, I’m starting with Homeschooling Day by Day.

What books will you make a point of reading this year? What things to do for yourself on Mother’s Day would you recommend? Please let me know in the comments below!

Happy homeschooling and parenting!

Love, Luck &
Laughter,

Kimberly

On Homeschooling and Being a WAHM

In addition to caring for my children, ferrying them around to various activities, household chores, homeschooling, reviewing for the TOS Crew and volunteering, I am also a Work-at-home Mom.� Many potential homeschoolers wonder if homeschooling is compatible with working – whether inside or outside the home – and I am here to tell you that many of us do both.� It’s not always easy juggling everything, but it is possible 🙂

I have been a WAHM since my children were born, often juggling more than one at-home job.� I� have been teaching music lessons in my home since the beginning, and at one point was a Tupperware consultant as well.� At present, I teach music in my home studio (the Music For Young Children program and private lessons), am an Educational Specialist for Usborne Books, and sell my own handspun yarn as well.� So for me, being a WAHM and homeschooling was a gradual process.

Yes, sometimes the housework does suffer, LOL, and I’m constantly battling clutter!� But in general, how do I get it all done?� With the help of my family.� My children have daily chores.� They also help me weekly with our FlyLady Home Blessing – we put all the things to be done on papers and pull them out of a jar, then go our separate ways and complete the job with the timer going for 10 minutes.� My 7 year old actually gets excited on Friday mornings when it’s time to do our weekly Home Blessing :)� My hubby also pitches in whenever he can and I really appreciate that.� He is also very supportive of me and my business pursuits, which is vitally important!

Something else that helps immensely is Sue Patrick’s Workbox System.� We have been using the Workbox System for about two years now.� It helps organize our homeschool work, encourages the children to do a lot independently and together (leaving more time for Mom to do work of any kind), and they get more done in less time.

One last tool that I find handy is my iPod Touch.� It’s not only a great tool for teaching, both music and homeschool, but it helps me organize almost everything.� I have an app for business contacts (ISAcontact), a grocery shopping app (ShopListFree), a gift list app (GiftBox), an app for my FlyLady and to-do lists (Tasks), among others.� I also like using the Calendar, which I can set to give me an alarm before an appointment or deadline.� Lastly, I like that wherever I go, I have the “Notes” which I can type notes on instead of writing on many little pieces of paper or post-it-notes!

I enjoy all my work.� I am so blessed that my family is such a big help.� My children enjoy giving suggestions for my music lessons, since they are also my students, and they love helping me with my small businesses, which in turn teaches them about running a business.
