Interview with Susan Wenner Jackson – Co-founder of Working Moms Against Guilt

Interview with Susan Wenner JacksonTell us a little bit about your blogging journey.

I started blogging way back in 2006, soon after our first child was born. As an advertising copywriter, I used Working Moms Against Guilt as both an outlet for my own personal writing as well as a way to connect with other women who were new to the whole “working mom” thing. Eight years later, I’m proud that it’s now an international community of women at all stages of working motherhood, inspiring thousands of moms to feel good about their choices and get help when they struggle.

What did you do before becoming an online publisher?

I started my career as a journalist, writing for daily newspapers, magazines and eventually websites as more content was being published online. I shifted over to PR, marketing and advertising around 2002, and worked for a number of years at ad agencies and marketing companies in the Cincinnati area. (more…)

9 Chat Agent Jobs You Can Do From Home

9 Chat Agent Jobs You Can Do From Home By Holly Reisem Hanna

Back when I was in college, I worked for a telemarketing company. While the gig itself was flexible with it’s hours and it paid well, it totally exhausted me. More often than not, people did not want to converse on the phone (which I totally get), so I would have to deal with their anger, irritation, and lots of hang ups. Over time I dreaded going in to work. After college, I worked for Medicaid doing prior authorization for nursing visits and home medical equipment. Again I was on the phone for long periods of time dealing with disgruntled providers — no fun!

While a lot of work at home jobs are phone-based, the Internet has opened up a new breed of customer service that does not require being on the phone. In fact, live customer service chat is becoming more and more popular everyday. Some of these chat positions do require background knowledge of a specific area, and many of them do require you to type a certain number of words per minute, so make sure you read all of the criteria before applying.

If you want to work from home as a chat agent, here are 9 companies to check out.

How to Be the Puppet Master of Your Own Life

How to Be the Puppet Master of Your Own LifeBy Janice Walker Pinnington

Having to manage your time and tasks can either be your closest friend or fiercest enemy, depending on your organizational abilities, discipline, and execution.

As a busy working stay-at-home mom, business owner, wife, friend, neighbor, sister, daughter, (and numerous other roles), there were many times in my life where I ran on pure, raw energy, jumping from task to task with no real (or clear) control over my day.

Much like a puppet on a string, I allowed my life to be controlled by an invisible force called responsibility. Let’s just say that Mr. Responsibility and I were NOT friends, and we clashed on many occasion resulting in stressful, joyless, and exhaustive days.

Fast-forward to 2015 and the snapshot of my life paints a much more balanced, happy, and controlled existence.

So what am I doing so differently today that allowed me to become a puppet master, pulling my own strings?

Below are some of the things I have implemented over the years, through trial and error, that allowed me to slow down, take a breath, and organize my day in a way to accomplish the things that needed doing. I hope you will find some inspiration in some of these ideas. (more…)

Interview with Gina Whitehouse – Beachbody Health and Fitness Coach

Interview with Gina Whitehouse - Beachbody Health and Fitness CoachTell us how you got involved with Beachbody. 

I had my first child in 2011 and a year later I knew I needed to do something to keep off the weight I had lost while nursing my daughter and tone my body. I needed to exercise. I had gym memberships in the past but I was never motivated to go. Now that I had a child there was no way I was going to bring her with me to the gym. It just took too much time to get myself and her ready, workout, and then come home. I knew working out at home was an option but I was hesitant to purchase a home workout DVD because I didn’t know if it would sit on my shelf or if I would actually do it. It was a month later that I saw a friend of mine had become a Beachbody Health & Fitness Coach and was offering an online accountability group. I joined the group and saw success with my weight loss! The accountability and encouragement was amazing. I knew that I could offer that to someone else! In August 2012 I signed up to be a coach.

My background is actually in residential home design. I studied architecture in college and worked for years as a designer. But, I knew I wanted to stay at home with my children when I decided to start a family. However, I found that the transition to working and staying at home was difficult. (more…)
