Rodan + Fields

So I thought that I would introduce the company that I recently partnered with; Rodan + Fields Dermatologists (yes, the creator’s of Pro-active). I recently had a bouncing baby boy, and like many others in these economic times found that it was actually more finacially straining for me to go back to work. So my husband and I went from a two person, two income household to a three person, one income household. I just had to find something I could do to generate any additional income possible, while taking care of my baby full time. But what the heck could I possibly do that wouldn’t be a scam and cause us to lose even more money. Well, I had a dear friend from high school that I had lost touch with, but with the power of facebook and twitter…

Budgets & Money

For some reason I was really itching to get out of here last night. Sean and I had spent most of the afternoon in the local libraries in search for information on grant writing. Thankfully when I came home a letter from Dick put me in the right direction. The Rehoboth Library really had nothing that I needed. The Lewes one didn’t either. They told me that the books I was looking for were up in Dover and the rest were on the Deltech Georgetown campus. I really didn’t want to travel that far so I wound up heading over to Atlantic Books and picked up a book that’s a complete guide to grants. It not only gives me a simple breakdown of everything I’m going to need to do but it also gave me a few samples so I…

Skimping & Saving

With a very small balance in my bank account I’ve been taking my limited resources and still managing to maintain a clean environment.  I’m to the point where I’m low on supplies such as bleach, toilet bowl cleaners, sponges, detergent, fabric softener and other basic supplies.  So what do you do?  Go to Walmart and hope to bring home the cheapest items on the shelf just to get the job done?  NO! – You go to the local Dollar Tree and pick up all of your supplies for $1 a piece.  The reason I love this store is everything is actually a dollar.  It’s not like the $0.99 cent stores that you walk into where the only thing that’s $0.99 is a piece of candy.  No, you can pick up everything from cleaning supplies to school supplies and purchase these…

Starting up a store…

With the recent page rank drops, I’ve been looking into alternative forms of making money online. It’s not that I’m a one-trick pony and only depend on the Internet when it comes to some form of employment, I just know that no matter what I end up doing in life – a computer will be involved. Considering, of course, that they’ve taken over the world – you know? I’m to a point now where I’m considering joining a program that you sell products for like 75% above cost and you keep the difference, my problem is the lack of ability to really sit down and focus on getting a program setup for me so I can just add as I go. Sure, I could just install something through cPanel and while I do know E-commerce, it’s a pain to have…
