You’re Invited to the #WEareCAbi Twitter ChatBy Holly Reisem Hanna

It’s no secret that I’ve been a long time CAbi fan and advocate. Not only do they have great clothing, a fun and lucrative business opportunity for women, but they’re also a company with a huge heart. Since its inception in 2005, the Heart of CAbi Foundation has donated more than $34,000,000 in financial support and clothing to women in need.

This year CAbi has launched a new initiative called, W.E. are CAbi (Women Entrepreneurs Are CAbi), the first ever one-for-one micro-lending program. In partnership with Opportunity International, the global non-profit financial services organization, CAbi will fund small business loans and training programs to support female entrepreneurs in developing countries, in the name of every new CAbi Consultant who starts her own business.

By providing the financing and mentorship to empower women to start their own businesses, W.E. are CAbi is projected to create and support approximately 8,200 jobs, impacting over 35,000 people in developing nations by the year 2020. (more…)

The Ups and Downs of Depression and Working at Home

The Ups and Downs of Depression and Working at HomeBy Emily Belcher

Disclaimer: I am not a doctor. This post is in regards to a serious medical problem that requires help from a licensed health professional. If you are currently depressed, please seek help from your doctor immediately.

Working from home has it’s benefits. In fact, I realized that I would be much happier working from home as soon as I started my first job at the age of 16. Of course, there weren’t as many opportunities available to work at home as compared to today but it was something that crossed my mind many times.

It’s not that I don’t like people. In fact, I love people. But some days, anxiety and depression get the best of me and I don’t love anyone. You can’t love anyone when you don’t love yourself. Unfortunately, depression doesn’t subside when you go to work. Many anxiety attacks and unexplainable and uncontrollable crying fits have happened at many jobs that I’ve had.

One common characteristic that I share with many people who suffer with depression is that it’s hard for me to hold down a job. Working with other people has a lot of positive and negative sides. When it’s good, it’s good but when it’s bad, it’s really bad. When fellow co-workers are happy or enthusiastic, it is easy to absorb their positivity. On the other hand, when working with people who talk negatively about the job, company, or employees, it can also rub off on you and lead you down the road of depression. (more…)

75+ Paid Writing Opportunities By Holly Reisem Hanna

Freelance writing is one of the best ways to make money from home. You don’t need any special training, the opportunities are plentiful, and you don’t even need a website to get started. As long as you can provide well written, thoughtful content — you can make a good amount.

Not convinced?

New York Times Best Selling Author, Nora Roberts, only has a high school education. She started writing her first novel back in 1979 after being trapped at home due to blizzard conditions. To date Nora has written 209 romance novels – incredible!

Still don’t believe me?

A couple of years ago Danny Margulies decided to quit his full-time job to pursue a copywriting career using the freelance platform, Elance. Without any special education or training he was quickly able to hone his skills and pull in six-figures during his second year working as a copywriter.

Turning Memories into Money: Making Photo + Video Slideshows for Profit

Turning Memories into Money: Making Photo + Video Slideshows for ProfitBy Cathi Nelson

Are you the person who loves to take photos at all your family events? Have you ever volunteered to make the video montage for your children’s preschool graduation? Do you always cry when you watch a show that includes photos and music? If so, you can turn your passion into a profitable business.

Creating video slideshows for family reunions, anniversaries, graduations, birthdays, weddings and many more of life’s milestones and celebrations is a great service people are happy to pay for.. The Association of Personal Photo Organizers member Jenny Larson, owner of Forever Digital Memories, made her first show for her kindergartner’s baseball team as a gift. Soon others wanted copies and she started realizing she had found a way to earn an income, doing something she loved. At first, she would make shows while her three boys napped and now they are in high school and she has a thriving business.

The basic construction of a slideshow is a combination of photos + video clips + music. You can choose to add special effects and animations, captions and text and other add-ons that will impress your clients. The idea is to tell a story with the content you’re given. It can be the story of a couple celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary, a recent high school graduate celebrating their achievement, a wedding couple documenting their lives for a reception video, a memorial show for a funeral etc.

If the idea of putting together a video like this sounds too technically overwhelming, think again! (more…)

How to Avoid Resistance

How to Avoid Resistance By Kelly Robbins

“There’s a secret that real writers know that wannabe writers don’t, and the secret is this: It’s not the writing part that’s hard. What’s hard is sitting down to write. What keeps us from sitting down is Resistance.”  That quote is from a book by Steven Pressfield, called The WAR of ART.

Resistance is what stops us each and every time we set a goal, intention, or resolution and don’t follow through. It’s the conversation we have in our head. It’s what kind of mood we are in or how we are feeling.

We don’t want to let our moods run our life, we want our commitments to.

The thing to know is resistance is sneaky and may look like your kids, your job, your partner … even your broken car disrupting your plans. However, resistance is internal and it’s you and only you that is creating it. The more resistance you feel, the more important it is to your soul’s evolution. The more important it is for you to step into it.

If it wasn’t important and it didn’t contribute to you bettering yourself in some way there would be no resistance. That makes sense, doesn’t it?

If you are just starting to build your work at home business or up-leveling your existing one you may be experiencing quite a bit of resistance right now! (more…)
