Virtual Chat Jobs

Let me be honest. Working from home is hard!! For many people, it takes awhile to build a steady income which can be tough when you need money right away! The logical choice is a customer service job as they pay a set income for set hours, but if you are a busy Mom like me, set hours with kids at home does NOT mix!! So what do you do??? Well we all know I’m a big fan of direct sales, but that does take time. Another option while you build your business, chat based customer service jobs!

 

pppppppThese sound like the perfect job for us busy Mom as you chat with the customers while not having to worry about your kids being loud in the background! Some do require set hours, but not all. Here is a list of a few to check out and apply to!! Happy chatting 😉

Monday Musings 8/24

I am not going to lie, the past week has been ROUGH! Will and I started homeschooling which has been a lot tougher than we thought. He has to do 4-6hrs of school each day and since I have a 3 and 1 year old to also keep busy, our days have been hectic! I’m attempting to do his school work when the baby naps as that little goober gets into everything. But that means less breaks for Will as we have to cram it into two or three sessions. The hardest part for him has been phonics. He has math and science down and loves those. But when it comes to letters and their sounds….NOPE! So Mommy and Will have both been a bit frazzled haha!!11219059_10153158365974576_3551802852844356049_n

 

I’m hoping this week will be easier since I know what to expect and also that I need to try and make it a little more fun for him. Currently he hates school and I know its mostly because I’m not too good at making it fun. He is learning the stuff he enjoys quickly, he was showing off his Five Senses and how to use them for his Grandpa today! And which things are on the left, and which are on the right. Smart boy!!!

 

Balancing working at home, watching my kids, and homeschooling has been rough. Its temporary so I know I can manage but I’ve had to drop others things so I don’t go crazy. We also move into our new house in a month which will add to the crazy for a few days haha. But I like crazy! I seriously think I function better when life is crazy. I mean, who likes boring?!?!

 

Lets talk things I’m loving this week!!!!

reviveacademy-300x200One of my best friends started a social media academy called Revive and its AMAZING! She teaches you how to be successful in social media and life! She even helps you pick out business appropriate outfits!!! This is the lady who mentored me when I started working from home 3 years ago so I know for a fact she is good!!

11870788_10153835955786091_4794192947214219852_n#GoodEnough is a cause special to my heart. When I started in the fitness world, I knew NOTHING! I was promoting a shake with horrible ingredients, needed to lose a lot of weight, ate too few calories, and was just an all around mess LOL. But I found a fitness company that didn’t care I was a mess! They cared that I was trying and no matter where I was in my journey, that I was good enough!! That’s such an important lesson everyone needs to be reminded of, and now you can get it on a shirt!!! These are limited edition and can only be purchased through this group so don’t miss out!

Want to hear a few funny stories from my week??? I know you do 😉

My sweet little Adalyn locked all of us out of the house, so Super Mom here broke the screen on a window, broke the lock on the window, got it up, and go Adalyn through to open the door back up. Luckily no one had to go to the bathroom as it kinda took me awhile. Note to self, give a friend a spare key!!!!

Liam learned if he chases after his brother and sister growling, they will run screaming. He thinks it hilarious, and they do too!

 

In homeschooling, Will and I were talking about “Up” and “Down”. I asked him what was on top of his chair. He replied “My tushey”.

 

I asked Will what he saw when he looked down when he is outside. He replied “Pollen, lots of pollen.”

 

Learning about food, I asked Will what gives you energy. He replied “Coffee. That’s why you drink it all day.”

 

Hope everyone has a wonderful and blessed week!!!

Sharing Pays

“I don’t want to sell a product”

Me either!!! Selling stuff is tough and not many people are big fans of sales people. So that is why I never sell stuff. I have a different job, I SHARE with people my love for a product. That’s right, I get paid to SHARE!476768c59e61b6691dee58482ff33c01

When I go to a new restaurant, I tell all my friends how good it was!! That’s great for the restaurant as I paid for my meal, and just advertised for them with nothing in return for myself.

When I buy new shoes, I tell people how much I love my shoes, where they can get them, and what a great product it is. This is great for the show store as I just paid full price for my shows, plus advertised for them and helped them get more business.

When I have a fabulous experience with an accountant, I recommend them to my friends and family. I paid full price for their service and now Im sending them more business because I thought they did a great job.

This is great for these businesses!!!! But what if I could get paid for sharing my love for these companies. And what if I could get a discount for getting them more business???

That’s what I do!!! I find a product I love, believe in, and will use daily and get paid to share it. I don’t sell. I don’t go door to door. I don’t bug my friends. I don’t beg people to buy.

I use my product, show myself using it. And that’s it!10995816_10153064888544576_7110161646201980006_n

For example, one product I use and LOVE is Jamberry Nail Wraps. I found them a few years ago and bought them because as a busy Mom, I didn’t have time to go to the nail salon. Plus the price was $15 for FOUR applications. You can’t beat that!!! So I used them, posted a few pictures, and made sales! Once I realized what a fun business it was, I started to expand. Here are a few things I’ve done to be successful in SHARING not SELLING

I began carrying sample packs with me that included directions and my business cards. These are popular as my nails are always done and every place I go, they advertise for me! If someone compliments them, I offer them a sample! No one says NO!

I offer my samples online by asking people to do a 7 Day Challenge. They get a free sample and use it on one nail, while putting polish on the others. They post the picture on social media on Day 1 and Day 7 to show the wraps vs the polish. This shows my product to tons more people and shows it WORKS

 

  • I make my own instruction videos and post those. People relate better when they see someone they know.
  • I do online parties which allows my friends to earn FREE products and for me to reach a wider range of people. I usually book a few parties from each party I host.
  • I pass out catalogs In local businesses
  • I do events
  • I do home parties

11427045_10153006194509576_6681166567386069160_n

 

I use the product!!! This is the biggest!!! When I go to the park with my kids, when I go to the grocery store, when I go to the doctor….everywhere I go people see my nails. My 3 year old uses them too!!!  We both are walking advertisements for a product we love!! I use them, I share them, and I get paid for doing that!!! Plus I earn free products each month and get paid for sharing them. Its an amazing opportunity, a great and FUN job and you can find pretty much any product out there to get started doing this with!

Managing Your Time When Working From Home

I always get asked how I manage to work from home with 3 kids with me all day. The truth is, it takes a lot of flexibility and to do lists!!! I get up before the kids, am up after them, plus answer emails/do work during their nap/quiet times. One way Im able to do this is my having a few different to-do lists. I know that sounds crazy, but its true haha.
I have one list for tasks I need to do each day, one for the monthly goals, and one for random things I wish to accomplish when I have time. For my daily list of things that HAVE to get done that day in related to work, I prioritize them in this order:
1) Close Friends11141180_10153078114179576_3521282344485357203_n
2) Paying Clients
3) Potential Clients
4) Business Building
5) Everything else
I break it up this way because the time I spend away from my kids is for the sole purpose of working and helping with their college funds and being debt free. So I always try and do the money making tasks first, and then everything else comes last and sometimes those other items don’t get accomplished that day, but its ok!

I usually have about 3 hours (if Im lucky) broken up throughout the day to do work, so I make sure to always get to my clients first as they pay for me to help them. I do put my close friends first as those relationships are very important to me!!! I don’t open browsers with facebook, pinterest, etc as those are just distractions. I make my list each morning of things that HAVE to be taken care of that day. The list is important as it helps me stay on track and keeps me from forgetting important things. Plus I prioritize it with numbers as what needs to be done first, second, third, etc.

Another thing that helps me is I have certain days each week I work on the same tasks. For example, Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday are the days I post blogs. The 5th and 20th of the months are the days I send out newsletters for my clients and page followers. Doing the same tasks each week/month helps me not to forget them. Plus when I plan my week out, I know those are going to be my busy days.

Different things work for each person, but for me, staying organized and having lots of lists is what helps me the most! Its taken time to find a system, and some days I get behind and other days I have evenings to just read and relax! Part of being a work from home mom is learning to go with the flow, just do your best, and remember your goals! For me, my kids come first, and work comes second.11692566_10153075505454576_1689907928773453451_n

Starting A Business

work from homeMany people are scared to work from home because they worry about how to get started, how to be successful, how not to be a failure, and how to know if a start-up cost is normal or a scam. Starting your own business is scary, but it is also empowering as it allows you to take your future into our own hands!!! It’s a very brave act that many people never have the courage to go after! But how do you get started and how do you make sure you are successful? I’ll share some tips as I know quite a lot about this subject!

 

pizap.com14295431785461The number one tip for being successful working from home is find a product you LOVE! Don’t look at the money right away, but instead search high and low until you find something you love, believe in, and would 100% use yourself and encourage your loved ones to use also. Work from home jobs can be tough as you need to set your own hours, push yourself, and get out of your comfort zone. But if you are passionate about your product/company than it shows and it makes your work fun!

You never ever ever want to be a sales person, that is just not fun! The tip to being successful and what I teach my team is to SHARE! Share why you love a product, why you buy it, the benefits of it, etc. Sharing is the way to make money, not selling. Keep that I mind when you pick something. Ask yourself, can I use this everyday and share it with others everywhere I go???? ((if your product advertises itself, HUGE bonus for you as it makes your work easier))

 

Once you find a product you love, check into the company and what it takes to work for them. Most require a small 62c12fbc492dc0c1be227f2645128c69start up fee which should give you a website and tools to get started such as products, catalogs, business cards, samples etc. If it requires a fee with NOTHING in return for you, research more into the company. Make sure to also look into what it takes to stay active with the company. Some require you to buy a certain amount from them each month in order to get paid. So they may require you to buy $200 worth of products but you only sell $50 worth and in the case you would be losing money. Always look into the requirements! Other companies require a website fee, some won’t pay you until you sell a certain amount, and others only pay you once you earn a certain amount of money. These are all things you want to know BEFORE signing up! Never be afraid to ask questions especially when it comes to your business.

 

 

Research the business and products. You are going to find good and bad re10943030_1022567594424071_1797698394091688528_nviews on everything out there, but don’t let that discourage you. If all you find is bad reviews, then take that into account. Remember though that some people just like to trash companies so weight what you find, both the good and bad. If you are selling a product people consume, research, research, research!!! This is VERY important as some products do have ingredients that can hurt people and you need to know what’s truly in those products and the side effects of consuming them. ((example: artificial sweeteners such as Splenda and sucralose are now showing long term effect and are in MANY consumable diet products…but don’t take my word for it, jut google it and research yourself))

 

 

11037143_933118456751953_6989970111978092783_nKnow your market and if the product you are selling can reach your friends and family. If you have a lot of friends interested in health and fitness, then joining a company like that will allow you to have a product they would be interested in. If you are interested in makeup, but most your friends prefer fitness, keep that in mind as you may have to work harder to make sales. Also look at the price of products. Is it something many people can afford? And is it something they will use often? Jewelry/bakeware/clothes are great, but many people don’t buy those items every single month which means you have to go out searching for new clients.

 

 

11008506_10153190080411760_5024804209952106402_nAnother great point when starting a business is to find a supportive and knowledgeable business partner! In most of these companies, you can join someone’s team which means they are there to answer your questions, train you, and help you to be successful. To me, this is one of the most important things as it makes things easier for you when you have someone cheering you on. Not to mention, having someone to go to with questions on how to be successful, how to time manage, and how to get your business rocking. Starting a new business can be scary, but having someone to help and encourage you can make a world of difference!! Trust me, after years in this business I know this to be true!!!

 

 

489a48abdc23f354f6af9fac81e21d9ennThese are just a few things to consider when starting your own business, but remember you should never be afraid to ask questions! Ask other people who have been in that company, or who have left the company. Find out what they liked/disliked about it. Also keep in mind that to work from home, you need to be your own boss which means you need to push yourself. Sure its tough at first, but when you consider the benefits, its totally worth it! I work when I want, as much as I want, and from where I want. I can work at the park, by the pool, or in my office. I’m the boss so I set my own rules!

 

Anyone can be successful working from home, you just need to be dedicated, find a product you love, do your research and never let excuses hold you back!
