When Work is a Family Affair

When Work is a Family AffairBy Christy Schutz

I am in the midst of a professional transition. I left my advertising gig the end of December and decided to start the New Year at my husband’s small business. I am helping him do some general office management, accounting and process improvement stuff, but, more importantly, am focused on upping the ante on their marketing game in hopes that I can grow the business and increase revenues (which would only be a big WIN-WIN for the both of us)!

I knew I was headed for a year full of change. Not only professionally, in how I spent my time from day to day, but also personally. After all, this new venture will mean that my husband and I will be under the same roof for almost 24 hours a day.

So, in honor of all that, I thought I dedicate today’s post to the 5 lessons I have learned so far about working with your significant other.

1. Define clear boundaries between work and home.

Before we started working together, my husband and I discussed how we were going to mentally separate work time from home time. One of the things I wanted was to leave work, and work talk, for work hours. Likewise, we agreed that we’d try to leave discussions about our kids or pets to our off work hours. For us, it was important that we had a clear distinction – mentally and emotionally – between work and our personal lives. (more…)

Traveling Vineyard – A Home-Based Business for Wine Lovers

Traveling Vineyard - A Home-Based Business for Wine LoverBy Holly Reisem Hanna

This month I had the opportunity to review the Traveling Vineyard and their Success Kit for new Wine Guides. I’ve always thought the Traveling Vineyard had a fun and unique concept, but also ideal. After all, what’s always served at home shopping parties … you guessed it, wine! And who doesn’t love drinking free wine?!

The company started back in 2001 with the goal of making wine tastings less stuffy. Well, their relaxed vision took off and today the company has over 1,000 Wine Guides in over 40 states.

The Products:

The Traveling Vineyard has 21 different varieties of wine in 3 different categories: red, white, and sweet and fizzy. Besides wine, they also sell accessories such as chillers, decanters, and openers. Wines are priced from $14 – $25 per bottle and because it’s a consumable item people always need more. Best of all their wines have a guest satisfaction rating of over 98%.

Cost to Join:

In January you can become a Wine Guide for $174 ($99 for the Success Kit and $75 for your first two tasting sets). You can also earn an electric wine opener when you reach $750 in sales within your first 60 days. If you sell $1,400 within your first 60 days, you’ll also get a $50 rebate. (more…)

Interview with Caitlin Pyle – Professional Transcript Proofreader

Interview with Caitlin PyleTell us a little bit about yourself and your entrepreneurial journey. 

I’m 27, married, and I have been earning full-time income proofreading transcripts for court reporters since 2012. While I am a free spirit who loves adventure, I also like a bit of stability. I’ve known I didn’t want to work for someone else since high school! Through college and a few years beyond, I did work “regular” jobs, but they were all so suffocating … and the last one was downright nightmarish. There are heaps of other things I enjoy doing, too, like working out, cooking, and spending time with family, so being able to do something I enjoy, that I do well, and that earns me full-time income for part-time hours is a dream come true for me. And now I’m teaching others to do the same.

What did you do before launching your business?

I am a certified personal trainer, and I spent some time trying to launch some kind of business in that field. It didn’t work out – I found that I didn’t quite enjoy personal training as much as I thought I would. It’s not a very stable way to earn income. You’re constantly trying to sell your services, whereas with proofreading, if you’re good, your clients know they need you!

Do you have any special training?

Lots of experience! My last job was actually in a court reporting office, and the president of the company taught me to proofread. (more…)

3 Ways to Work at Home Doing Internet Research

3 Ways to Work at Home Doing Internet ResearchBy Holly Reisem Hanna

Hi Holly,

I found your original ad in the Woman’s World Magazine and have been searching all through the Pinterest ads for work from home jobs. There are so many to go through and some want money and others I am not sure are real jobs but Holly, I LOVE research and would like to start a business doing research, but have no idea how to get started. I thought I would ask if you had any ideas since you are seeking ways of possible employment for people.

I hope you will have some ideas and share them with me as am very eager to get started.

Sincerely, Judy L.

Hi Judy,

Internet Research is a great way for you to work from home! In fact, there are lots of companies who hire freelancers to do their research for them — you just need to know where to look. Law firms, marketing departments, insurance companies, healthcare providers, political groups, even writers, publishers, and college students need researchers. (more…)
