Skyrocket Your Blog’s Earnings and Traffic with PinterestBy Holly Reisem Hanna

Normally, I’m very practical when it comes to social media hype, but with Pinterest I’ve seen major results from my own efforts, as well as I know many bloggers who are having incredible results, because of pins that have gone viral.

Point in case, Mandy Rose and Meagan Paullin have both talked about their Pinterest success in this post, Bloggers Making Over 40K With Their Blogs. In fact, Mandy had a “home tour” pin that has been pinned close to a million times and Meagan had one post go viral which in turn, skyrocketed her earnings for 2013.

Still not sure about the hype? Check out these stats.

27 Things You Can Sell From Home to Make Money

27 Things You Can Sell From Home to Make MoneyBy Holly Reisem Hanna

From a very early age I was taught the value of money. Not only did I do chores to earn a weekly allowance, but I was expected to save my money for things that I wanted to purchase. And like most kids — I wanted more than I really needed, which motivated me to come up with other ways to make money.

Yes, I sold lemonade from a TV tray in our neighborhood, but I also sold arts and crafts door-to-door. I collected salamanders from our backyard and sold them to the local pet store. I collected aluminum cans from the nearby business park’s dumpsters and sold them to the recycling center, and I sold my old toys in rummage sales.

Fast forward and not much has changed. In college, I sold my old text books and CDs for cash. I sold old clothes to consignment shops. I even sold my body to science, by participating in numerous pharmaceutical research studies. The point being … when you’re short on cash there are TONS of ways to make extra money by selling things.

So if you need some extra pocket cash, here are 27 different things you can sell from home.

Advice:

Are you a math whiz or a tech guru? Do you know a foreign language? Then cash in on your knowledge on sites like Brain Mass or Create Pool. Simply browse the questions, give an answer, and get paid. (more…)

6 Business Books to Read This Summer

6 Business Books to Read This SummerBy Holly Reisem Hanna

Where has this school year gone?! In the next couple of weeks my daughter will be out of school and summer will be upon us. While I have our vacation plans mapped out and my daughter’s camp activities booked — I haven’t had much time for focusing on myself. Fortunately, Amazon makes it so easy to do some quick research that I was able to find some fantastic reads for this summer.

So whether you’ll be traveling the world, lounging by the pool, or enjoying some quiet time at home while the kiddos are off at camp — make sure to stock up on some good books to help cultivate your mind and spirit over the summer months.

Here are 6 books that are on my reading list this summer.

Dale Carnegie – How to Win Friend and Influence People

This has been on my reading list for a long time. It was first published in 1937 and has since sold 15 million copies. Especially in this digital age where personal connections are lost, we can all benefit from Dale’s networking and relationship building techniques. This book gets 4 1/2 stars on Amazon and is only $2.99 for a Kindle copy.

Lois Frankel – Nice Girls Don’t Get Rich: 75 Avoidable Mistakes Women Make with Money

For some reason, this title rubs me the wrong way. Perhaps it’s because I consider myself a nice girl. Anyway …  I was at the book store when I stumbled upon this book. (more…)
