Domestic Goddess...

I wrote a similar post several months ago and thought I needed to bring up the topic again.

Domestic Goddess…I prefer our SAHM and WAHM (Stay At Home Mom and Work At Home Mom) title to be Domestic Goddess (DG) That seems to make people smile. Yes, most people do not give praise where praise is needed when it comes to being a Domestic Goddess. Being a DG is absolutely the hardest position in the world. There is no paycheck to go along with the experience. At one time I was confused by what I was looking for while in the midst of bringing kids into this world. Never getting recognition for all my long hours and dealing with spit-up, homework headaches, being asked what is for dinner and once prepared no one wants to eat it – I could go on and on. Many of you may have also found yourself in my position. I thought I was looking for income to make me happy (even though my DH (dear husband) is a successful dentist) I did not find out until I had worked from home and made a name for myself and earned great money it was not the money I was looking for - it was the recognition of belonging to something again and corresponding with adults is what I missed.

Before I got involved in the network marketing industry I worked as a school teacher and then I worked as an accountant (major and minored in college). I was rewarded as a teacher by the success of my kids and rewarded as an accountant when I was able to balance a worksheet. Being a DG you never seem to get the same praise until you are in public and your kids use the phrases “please” and “thank you” when you least expect it and you feel you have done a mighty good job raising them! That is just one example - having your kids tell you they love you without being prompted is absolutely one of the best things a DG loves to hear.

When I discovered network marketing I found what I was longing. The rewards I got from helping others with their health and financially gave me what I needed. The money was secondary but the money also turned out to be a blessing because even though I never needed to really ask for permission when it came to spending money I always thought it was my obligation to talk to DH (Dear Husband) since he was the one working and earning the income. Now I am earning as well and I feel I have an even say in monetary issues that have to be dealt with in our home.

Working from home and being a DG now gives me more respect from my kids than before. I am also more respected by my friends who use to think I just sat at home and ate bon bons all day - you know where they can stick those bon bons :) My kids see me juggling my home business and their school and social functions. My kids are happy to have their “mommy” at home and I feel good about being able to see them and being able to stop by their school whenever I want. Being a DG and a WAHM gives me the intrinsic feeling of success that I was searching for – that is my big “WHY”.

What are you passionate about? I am sure you have heard that many times before. Have you ever worked in an mlm or network marketing company? It is something you can do on your own time. For less than $200 you can start a home business just like I did!

You can reach me anytime if you have questions. I have been featured in three books and am always happy to share my story and what I do to bring in extra income and meet so many wonderful people from around the world.

GOOD LUCK to you and I hope I helped a little or a lot!

Would You Rather...

While running on the treadmill the other morning I happened to turn on The Today Show when they were revealing their poll for the day. The question was asked of the viewers...

Would you rather
1) Lose 10 pounds
2) Get 10 extra days of vacation
3) Get $1,000

Let the question sink in and then choose your answer from above. What do you think the results were and why did you think that way? You can comment and then the poll results are below.

The results:
32% chose lose 10 pounds and it was a tie between the 10 extra days and receiving $1,000 - 34% of the viewers chose the vacation and 34% chose the $1,000!

Do the results surprise you? They surprised Hoda and Kathi Lee.

With today's economy people are scared. They are looking for more time freedom and more money to help pay the bills. With the rising gas prices everything is affected.

I thought people would have chose Lose the 10 pounds hands down. My reasoning behind my answer is the health issue. I feel without good health what else matters. I just assumed that others would see the health issue as a big deal. If you are over weight and have the health issues like Diabetes, High Blood Pressure and other health related issues that go along with being over weight then how are you going to enjoy the money? I know 10 pounds does not seem like a lot to some of you but to many people that is all they need to lose to get in a certain frame of mind to start working towards a healthier lifestyle. To lose 10 pounds takes dedication and to earn a good living also takes dedication. The reality is money is a temporary comes and it goes but a healthy body is your key to a long life. All the money in the world is useless if you do not have good health.

In this economy people have shifted away from health to worrying about their next pay check and how they are going to fill their car up with gas. People are more scared of what is going to be next. Folks, the $1,000 will not last you too long and the vacation days will come and go and then you will hopefully have some great memories but that is all. What if you could work towards good health yourself and work towards improving your lifestyle? Would you give it a shot if the right opportunity came along?

For those of you who answered for more vacation days or the money I am sure if I ask you if you are happy with your present job you will say NO. Well, now that we have that out of the way what are YOU going to do about it? I am not saying it is going to be easy but start getting busy. Where do you see yourself in 10 years? You can be 10 pounds lighter with some discipline and action. You do not even need to join a gym...let your feet walk or run you to your goal weight. The vacation time and money issue will take a little bit more thinking on your part. If you are searching for more out of life than what your current employer is offering you then I would like to offer you a FREE 30 minute DVD that will share with you what I have done to add to my bottom line. I am going to be is not easy but with some effort and some time and some consistent action on your part your success will be assured. If you think you are open to taking the next step to improving your income status and even your health please leave me a comment here or contact me at shelleyk @ (do not use spaces in the email address) You need to get me your contact information or I cannot help you.

Create A Great Day!
