10 Quick and Easy Tips for Conquering Your To-Do List

10 Quick and Easy Tips for Conquering Your To-Do ListBy Jan Pinnington

The dishes are piling up, the dog needs his shots, you can’t find two socks that match, your garbage can stinks, and the dentist office just called to find out if you are still coming in today for your appointment that started 10 minutes ago.

Sound familiar?

This may sound like a typical scenario in your hectic, out-of control-day, but we’ve compiled 10 quick and easy tips to help even the most frazzled mom get back on track.

The following tips are not written in any particular order, but if embraced, we promise they will make your life easier. A LOT easier. So, are you ready to jump right in?

1. Get plenty of sleep. 

This seems so basic, but getting through your day and staying organized requires lots of brain function. An exhausted mind is rarely productive. Take advantage of the regenerating effects of proper sleep to ensure a full and energetic day.

2. Get up earlier than you need to. 

You would not believe how many speeding tickets you will save (along with the stress of trying to make that morning appointment on time). Getting up early puts you in control from the moment you awake. Forget the snooze button, and greet your day at the first sound of your alarm. (more…)

5 Ways Blogging Can Contribute to Your Self Growth

5 Ways Blogging Can Contribute to Your Self GrowthBy Tasia Gonsalves-Barriero

We all have them.

Bad habits, mindsets, learned helplessness that we may not be aware of. We’ve gotten quite accustomed to them that they feel a part of us. Developing good blogging habits should allow you to confront some of these habits and make decisions about them that will be beneficial.

If you’re new to blogging welcome to the club! This is your new baby and you can look forward to a few sleepless nights (to make that deadline), staring at a blank screen and a controversial topic or two.

On the other hand if you’ve been doing this for some time then you’ll see a pattern in some of the things listed here below.

But I’ll be honest and real with you: building a blogging audience will take commitment and dedication. It’s been estimated that there are 7 million dead blogs in the blogosphere.

Yours won’t be one of them.

With that said, blogging is not for those who want an easy buck or internet stardom. (more…)

Working From Home as Ghostwriter – Interview with Anne Violette

Working From Home as Ghostwriter - Interview with Anne VioletteTell us a little bit about your ghostwriting journey.

I took the road less traveled …

Unlike many ghostwriters, I did not obtain a degree in journalism or English. My journey began as a child, when I first won an award for writing. It was just a natural, God-given talent. I excelled in high school and college in writing and English courses, but I pursued art and marketing, as well as travel and tourism. I landed a job at an ad agency and had a lot of miscellaneous writing assignments to do while there, from scripts and booklets; to other things. I was also asked to moonlight for a business publication in New England, where I quickly excelled and became a “cover story” writer. I stayed up all hours of the night, writing and drinking wine. I started working on a book, but it never amounted to anything. It was just a hobby, really.

After six years, I started my own professional photography business. I did not have time to write much anymore, so I took a hiatus and focused on new endeavors. For me, it was just a passion and hobby more than anything “serious”. Until 2007, when after moving to Florida, I started feeling a strong urge in my gut, like I was being led to write professionally. I was not happy at my jewelry store job (it was not challenging enough) and I got myself into a financial pickle with my house, so I started looking for opportunities online. (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…)
