Family-owned company seeks independent dealers who want to make extra money working from home.
Did you receive a free diaper bag at the hospital with the name of a baby products company on it? Or maybe you were given an ink pen by your insurance agent with his logo on it? Do you have a keychain with the name of your bank or beverage can koozi with the name of your realtor on it? Maybe you own a souvenir coffee mug with the name of your favorite vacation destination? What about a water bottle with your child’s sports team name printed on it?
These are all examples of promotional advertising products that independent authorized dealers can sell when they start a home business with Kaeser & Blair, Inc.
A Midwestern company with national reach
In business over 100 years, Kaeser & Blair is a highly respected, national distributor for promotional advertising specialty products and is headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio. (more…)
Tell us a little bit about your entrepreneurial journey.
My journey as a mom entrepreneur began in 2005 after the birth of my daughter when I left my job as an advertising associate with a local newspaper to start an online baby boutique. I loved being an entrepreneur and while I enjoyed the boutique industry, I realized I was more passionate about design and graphics, and that led to me pursuing my passion as a website designer. I absolutely love working with inspired, creative and absolutely amazing entrepreneurs who’re pursuing their own dreams and aspirations.
How are you making money online?
My main source of online income comes from my web and graphic design services. However, I also enjoy blogging and recently began accepting sponsored posts.
How are you growing your clients?
I grow my clients by building and nurturing relationships. People like doing business with those they know and trust so it’s so important that I cultivate relationships that customers can count on. (more…)

Whether you’re in an office or working from your domicile, getting stuck in a routine is common for just about anyone who works! When you’re working at home, though, it’s easy to fall into the trap of just getting by. So often things feel rushed at home. You’re rushing to wake up kids, make sure they’re getting ready, preparing breakfasts and lunches, and playing taxi driver for what feels like the rest of the day. Before you know it, it’s 10:00 am, and you haven’t gotten any business work in.
The next time you feel like the day is getting away from you, be sure you’re not getting bogged down by any of these three business growth killers!
Starting your day after 10:00 am.
Though it’s easy to do, getting a handle on any work mid-morning instead of early morning can cut you out of some of the bigger business opportunities. Especially if you’re a west-coaster who works with a lot of east-coasters, you’re constantly battling that time zone to finish assignments earlier and earlier. If you plan on releasing a press release, posting a company blog, or getting in touch with a client or partner you know you need to speak to earlier in the day, try and wake up a little earlier than the kids to get a jump start on your day. Even if you just get up an hour earlier to tackle some emails, you won’t feel so behind once the rest of the morning’s duties are taken care of. (more…)

What did you do before launching your own business?
I was working as a Communications Skills and Soft Skills trainer with American Express and then, Dell India.
As part of my role, I was training executives in the art of communicating with empathy and clarity, both verbally and via their written communication.
Tell us a little bit about yourself and your freelance journey.
I started working online as a writer in 2008 when my daughter was about 8 or 9 months old. I’ve always enjoyed writing both professionally and personally, and getting the chance to write and get paid while staying at home was just awesome!
Starting my blog, The Mom Writes was the first step. From thereon, I honed my craft by writing for several websites, including Blissfully Domestic, the Untrained Housewife and others, and focused on growing my audience organically by sharing content that reflected my passion as well as resonated with them.

I have blogged for 4 years now. I had hoped to reach some kind of great fame (and money) by now, but most days, I just have a sore back and eye strain.
Sure, my blog’s been read by a few thousand people. And there were times I made some extra cash. But, I do need to confess, it did end up being a hobby for me – until just a month ago.
I started looking for work, I needed a paying job. Surprisingly, my blog is helping me land some good paying gigs.
How Did My Blog Get Me Work?
To many outsiders blogging is silly. It’s the “mommy blogs” or people talking about their pets or posting silly memes. But to a blogger, blogging is a serious job (even if unpaid). (more…)
