Establish Credibility for Your Work-from-home Business

Sponsored by The UPS StoreEstablish credibility for your work-from-home business

Running a business from home is a great way to cut costs and keep your schedule flexible, but it can present some unique challenges. One of the biggest challenges is establishing business credibility.

Fortunately, there are a number of actions you can take to legitimize your home-based small business.

Establish a mailing address that isn’t your house.

Just because you work from home, that doesn’t mean you should receive your business mail there. There are a couple of compelling reasons for using a mailbox service for your business mail.

First, using mailbox services like those from The UPS Store means you don’t have to stress about being out of town when an important document arrives. With a mailing service, you can always be confident your mail is received and secure.

Second, a street address other than your house or a P.O. Box establishes your credibility as a business to potential customers. (Plus, do you really want your customers scoping out your house on Google Maps?)

Don’t undervalue quality printing.

In today’s digital world, it can be easy to forget the importance of quality printing – especially for marketing materials and business cards. One of the most affordable ways to make your small business look big is using a professional printing service.

Profitable Ways to Make Money From Home

By Kimi ClarkProfitable Ways to Make Money From Home

Making money from home is something that many women these days are looking to do. Let’s face it, when you take into account the cost of childcare, gas, work clothing, lunches and more, depending on the type of work you do, sometimes staying home can save you money!

But are there actually profitable ways to make money from home?

Well, I’m happy to say that thanks to the internet, I can say with 100 percent certainty, YES!

Gone is the day of stuffing envelopes (although you want to definitely be on the lookout for potential scams). We’re in a new era where women can absolutely stay home with their children while also bringing in a decent income … and in some cases, pretty substantial!


Probably my favorite way to make money from home. Although, I will say it’s definitely not the easiest, mostly because of the time it takes to build traction (and by traction, I mean traffic) and to be able to actually produce income. (If you want to start a profitable blog of your own, we can help you do that here!)

If you’re looking for proof that you can make money blogging, I’d like to introduce you to Becky Mansfield and Paula Rollo. Becky runs Your Modern Family and Paula runs Beauty Through Imperfection. (more…)

How to Make Money and Empower Women With Handbags

How to Make Money and Empower Women With HandbagsBy Holly Reisem Hanna

This past week I had the pleasure of checking out the ClaudiaG home business opportunity. The ClaudiaG Collection consists of leather handbags, chic jewelry and accessories – so if you love fashion you’ll want to check this out.

In fact, I took the Luminous Tote on my Cancun trip and I received so many compliments on it. It’s a great size for a beach bag or every day use. You could even use it as a laptop bag – it’s so versatile.

So tell you a little bit more about this home business opportunity we have ClaudiaG’s founder, Claudia Gutierrez.

Hi, I’m Claudia. I’m originally from Colombia and have lived in Houston, Texas, for over 15 years. Upon completing my studies in Business Administration at St. Thomas University, I got my MBA in 2004 and accepted a position with JP Morgan Chase, starting a successful career in banking.

I was always curious about activities that included design and craftsmanship. Growing up in a region of the Colombian Caribbean infused with the natural beauty of the sea and its tropical climate and inspired by the creative process of the artisans and the richness of the colors and materials, I naturally evolved to handbag and accessory design.

I began selling to women around me, and based on their fantastic reaction I soon realized I could offer the same opportunity to others as a way of gaining financial independence without sacrificing the responsibilities and joys of family life and community involvement. (more…)

Is Working From Home Really More Flexible?

By Dawn BerrymanIs Working From Home Really More Flexible?

Many of us seek work-from-home employment or start our own business because we want more flexibility. We want the ability to work the hours we choose, be with our children when we want and take care of our personal and family needs while we work.

Is that realistic?

There are many scenarios that can upset this ultimate work-life balance that we all seem to seek.


In many cases, women don’t just want to work; they need to work. Their families rely on their income to help support their needs and wants. When a woman decides that she wants to start her own business, this is sometimes hindered by the family’s needs. She may not be able to afford to quit her existing job to launch her venture. The family may not be able to simply absorb the start-up costs and the difference in pay that she may experience.

A lot of women entrepreneurs start their businesses while they continue to work either full or part-time. This can cause the business to get off the ground more slowly. It can also be overwhelming for the woman who decided to start the business because she wanted more flexibility when in actuality it’s causing her to spend even less time with her family. (more…)
