4 Tips For Starting Your Home-Based Fitness BusinessBy Amber Trimble

Do you have dreams of turning your fitness journey into a business? A home-based health or fitness-related career is a great option to turn your personal narrative into a small business.

For example, Maria Kang, founder of No Excuse Mom. She has used her fitness journey as a platform to launch a book and grow a community with over 300K Facebook followers. She developed a free work-out community for local “No Excuse Moms.” Groups are popping up all over the country.

Lisa Druxman, founder of Fit 4 Mom, home of the a stroller-based workout franchise, Stroller Strides. Stroller Strides has over 1,400 locations nationwide.

Erica, of Ericafitlove, lost 150 lbs in 2 years. She uses Instagram to share her story and promote her online health coaching business.

Danielle Walker, author and mother, used her autoimmune disease diagnosis as a catalyst to launch Against All Grain, she is now a New York Times best-selling author.

While these entrepreneurial stories are inspiring, there isn’t a recipe for overnight success. A home-based fitness career will likely start off small.

Best Cities to Work From Home

Best Cities to Work From HomeBy Sarah Landrum

Working from home is a trend that doesn’t seem to be going anywhere any time soon. In fact, it seems as though more and more companies are adapting their offices and tasks to make working from home more plausible for their employees. This cuts down on costs for employers and makes employees happy, working from the comfort of their own homes.

Because this trend is growing, it’s possible for you to live anywhere you want, in any city you want, depending on your occupation. This begs the questions: What’s the best possible city to work in when you work out of your home? This list takes into account Internet speed, cost of living, general happiness of citizens and even more.

San Francisco

San Francisco is the perfect place to live if you work from home. It’s a fantastic city with a mild climate. Cost of living can get pretty expensive, but the city still offers fast Internet, great businesses and companies to work for, along with beautiful views and delicious food. The city is even working on getting Internet connections on public transportation vehicles.

Washington, D.C.

Working for the government has never been easier. There are actually laws in place that mandate government agencies to allow their employees to work from home, so naturally, living there is a great place for a telecommuter. The access to the Internet and the fact that it’s a pretty cool city doesn’t hurt either. (more…)

5 Life and Business Lessons I’ve Learned From My Mom

5 Life and Business Lessons I've Learned From My MomBy Jan Pinnington

Life has a way of steering you in the right direction if you take a moment to listen. My mom’s advice has come back to me in ways I could never have even imagined.

I now affectionately refer to my mom as my “wise sage” and appreciate any and all insight she can share with me. She knows stuff. She’s lived through the depression and comes from a family of immigrants who spoke zero English when they arrived in Canada in the early 1900’s. Not only did my mom’s family of 13 children survive, but they thrived.

Hardship didn’t harden their perspective or hearts. In fact, quite the opposite happened. I’m honored to say that my mom and her siblings are kind-hearted, hard-working people who never accepted a handout. There was always enough to share, no matter how meager the meal or resource.

Here are the five life lessons I learned from my mom, and how I applied them to my business life today.

1. There’s No Instant Success.

My mom’s family arrived in wintery Manitoba, Canada with a few broken suitcases and dreams for a better life. Let’s just say that success wasn’t instant. It took decades to achieve stability and progress. (more…)

5 Reasons Not to Wear Your PJ’s to the Office

5 Reasons Not to Wear Your PJ's to the OfficeBy Patty Buccellato

Did you start your workday at the computer in your snugglies this morning? Convenience is probably one of the reasons you started an at-home business in the first place. You can stumble from bed, to coffee maker or kids’ room, to your office in less time than it takes most workers to plan their morning commute. It goes to follow that comfy clothes are a regular workday temptation.  But like many other temptations, giving in is not always in your best interests.

Just as having a clear-cut workspace delineates the separation in mental focus from personal to business, “getting dressed for work” can shift you into a more purposeful mind space for the professional goals you’ve established. A well-put-together personal appearance boosts results in tangible ways.

Consider the impact on five success-producing qualities:

1. Confidence.

In a study of 100 women ranging in age from 21 to 64 — 96% “believed that what they wear affects how confident they feel.” (Most of us are aware that we’re judged significantly by appearance. Whether you’ve been ignored at a store in favor of a better-dressed customer, or passed over for a promotion in the workplace, it’s likely you’ve had some direct run-in with the effects of appearance and dress.
