Revive Academy With Crystal Honeycutt

In the past 5 years, hundreds of women have learned to live their best life now through my professionals training program. With my training, these women have been able to create multiple streams of income. They have been able to get themselves off public assistance, buy homes, pay off mortgages, purchase reliable transportation, pay off debt, pay off student loans years ahead of schedule, take family vacations, provide for their children, start their own businesses, and even open up fitness studios. While all of those things are great, those amazing accomplishments aren’t what I look for in the success of my professional clients. I look want to teach each of them to be the #MomBoss of her life, wear self confidence like it’s a shiny new diamond on her finger, be married to her spouse instead of her job, and #BeHereNow with her children. It is my goal to teach every women how to build her own empire, to leave a legacy for generations to follow, and to hold her head high no matter what comes her way. Use code “blackfriday” to get 25% of this program until the 29th!

Do And Do NOT Of Social Media

Many people are using Facebook to run their businesses these days, and there is a right and wrong way to do it! I’ll share a few things you want to do….and a few things you want to avoid. Facebook is a great tool, when used correctly!

selling-on-facebook

  1. Professional Profile Picture- Your picture is the first thing people see, you want it to be you, be real, and look as professional as possible. If you can’t afford head shots, get a friend to take some photos of you. Try to do it outside as the lighting is best. Focus on just your face, with no distractions. Its ok to wear a shirt or hat with your company name on it, but you want the picture to be you!
    1. Do NOT make your profile picture the product you promote, an unflattering picture, or quotes. People want to get to know you, and on social media, the first impression is important!
  2. Drama Free Is The Way To Be- Yes we all have problems and issues and drama, but social media is NOT the place to talk about it. Especially if you use that for your business. Many times you are networking and meeting new people, and they don’t want to know about your drama. That’s quick way for them to decide you are not the person to do business with. If you have drama, keep it quiet with close friends, not in public!
  3. Keep Your Page About You- People do not want to see you selling a product 24/7….even if it’s the best product in the world! You need to balance! I recommend 90% of your posts be about you, and only 10% about your business.
  4. Use Your Name- You want people to come to you for help with their needs so it’s important to brand yourself, and not just promote a product. Because of this, do not put your company name in your Profile Name, or use a fake name. It confuses people and makes it hard for them to find you. Be real, be you, and remember you and your product are not the same person.
  5. Keep It Fun- People Need to be engaging with you in order to keep seeing your posts. Share fun activities with your friends, share crafts you are doing, or share motivational quotes. The more people engage with you, the more they will see your posts!
  6. Avoid Selling- Facebook is for keeping in touch with people, not making millions. If you want to share a product you love, that’s great!!! But don’t use it to spam people asking them to buy from you, or posting asking people to buy stuff. The key is to share, not sell.
  7. Get To Know People- If you meet a new friend online, do NOT try to sell them your products. Instead, ask them what they do, what their hobbies are, what they enjoy….get to know them! If you immediately ask them to buy from you, they will most likely un-friend you and that door is slammed shut. But if you get to know them, and later down the road find they aren’t interested, they may refer friends to you! I personally send tons of friends to other business owners! I know my job isn’t for everyone, and that’s ok so I find out their interested, and send them to a job that might be a good fit.
  8. Do not OVER post! Balance how many times you post a day based on how many friends you have. If you have less than 300 friends on social media, only post once a day. If you have around 1,000 you could post about 3 times a day. The reason is, too many posts makes facebook think you are spamming people and they will stop showing their posts to them. Plus, no one wants to see 10 posts from you in one day, even if they really really like you 😉
  9. Don’t share articles, photos, videos etc if you are using your page for you business. Keep it professional. Those funny quotes are cute, but too many of them annoy people and confuse them as to what the purpose is. Make sure people know your page is about you, your family, and your business.
  10. Final Tip- Support Those Who Support You- This is HUGE in home based businesses!!! I remember those who supported me when I first got started, and you will see that those are the people I share the most on this page and on my Facebook Page. They supported me, so I will do everything I can to help them! Those who constantly ask me to buy products or promote their business yet have NEVER done anything to support me….usually do not get my help. I know that’s harsh, but it’s the truth in this business. All it takes is sharing someone’s post about their business, taking a moment to learn more about them, and even refer friends if the products aren’t for you. Showing support can make the difference between someone being successful, and someone feeling alone and giving up. So remember, always always always help those that you can and especially those who have helped you!

Slow Cooker Chicken

Being a busy Mom can be tough!!! Especially at lunch/dinner time! See, I want to eat healthy, save money, and have quick meals. That’s not asking for too much right?!?! One of my favorite ways to reach all those goals is to utilize my Slow Cooker!! I’m a big fan of cooking soup in there, and freezing half of it for later meals.

 

12065860_10153287801124576_1231623165631488924_nI also use it every single week (yes I’m a creature of habit!) for my lunch! For a while I was buying the bags of grilled chicken that you just toss in the toaster oven, for my lunch each day. But those are expensive! One bag was around $5.99 and only lasted a few days. You know me, I had to find a better way!

 

Now I buy a whole chicken for usually around $5, cook that in the Slow Cooker, and eat it for lunch all week long! Here is the recipe I like, but you can change up the spices to fit your tastes.

 

INGREDIENTS:

1 Whole Chicken

1 Bag Baby Carrots

2 Cups Celery

1 Whole Onion, chopped

½ Cup Water

1 Tsp Salt

1 Tsp Pepper

1 Tbsp Basil

1 Tbsp Oregano

 

DIRECTIONS:

Pour the water in the bottom of the Slow Cooker. Next chop the onion and celery and add those. Pour in the carrots. Rinse the chicken and remove the giblets and place in the Slow Cooker. Rub the seasonings on top of the chicken. Cook on slow heat for 4-6 hrs.

 

And enjoy!!!!!

Shop Small Business Owners This Holiday

As the Holiday season approaches, my goal at Work from Home Mom’s is to educate everyone on what a difference can be made when you shop more from Small Business Owners! Did you know that over 17 MILLION Americans work in direct sales businesses???? That’s a lot of people!!! We as Americans spend an average of $603 BILLION during the Holiday Season. Now imagine if that money was going toward the average Family instead of a CEO buying his 5th vacation home!Publication1

 

That money could be helping a family afford present for their kids!  54% of the Holiday Buying is done online anyway, so do it through a small business owner!

 

I encourage everyone to buy from at least one small business owner this Holiday Season, and ask your friends and family do the same!! To make it easier for you to find them, here is a great list of some of the amazing products you can get!!! Feel free to share this amazing Catalog with everyone you know! The more people who buy from small business owners, the more money goes back into our economy. A win for everyone this Holiday Season!

 

Make sure to also join our Online Holiday Shopping Event and you can learn more about these products and amazing companies!! https://www.facebook.com/events/1057402754284361/

 

Thank You for Your Support!candycane-copy

SCAMS?!?!

This week I have gotten a lot of emails about legit jobs vs ones that are scams. It can be really hard to tell the difference, so always do your research! The Better Business Bureau is a great place to start, but you can also google the company name plus the word “reviews” to learn more.  This article also gives you more tips. http://musingsofamultitaskingmom.com/pyramid-schemes-scams-direct-sales-and-more/

Remember to never give out personal information unless you are POSITIVE the company is not a scam!

There are MANY great companies out there so don’t be scared to look! Just be safe!!!

Publication1HOLIDAY SHOPPING!!

Christmas is coming and the biggest time for most direct sales companies. Our online event launches November 9th so please attend and support other small business owners. I highly encourage everyone to buy from at least one small business owner this year! If you need suggestions on gifts, our Christmas Catalog is also a great place to look!!

TOO EARLY FOR TAXES?!?!

No! it is never too early to get ready for tax time!!! You need to stay organized and make sure to always keep track of what you spend vs what you earn. I keep a detailed spreadsheet plus every receipt just to be on the safe side. If you are going to hire someone to do your taxes, make sure to start looking into that now!
