BAHMs! You Look Good In $5!

Business at home moms, here's a short but fun video for you! You Look Good In $5!

I Love looking good in $5.00! In fact the more $5's the better for me! Eliminate my cell phone bill and keep anything over and above.

What I Love about this plan is it's ok if I don't build quickly like others do. I still benefit. In fact right now I get $20.00 knocked off my cell phone bill. Now I only pay $24.00 per month for my cell phone bill and I get unlimited Voice, Text, and Data (300MB).

Healthy BAHM! Minty Cucumber Lime Refreshing Drink

We have cucumbers growing, we plan to get some mint (all different kinds) to grow in our garden and I guess we'll just have to buy the lime cause we don't have that. I can't wait to try this drink.

BAHMs staying healthy! To our children and grandchildren!

1/2 a cucumber, sliced
1/2 a lime, sliced
1/4 cup fresh mint leaves

Strawberry-Lemon with Basil

1/2 cup sliced strawberries
1/2 a lemon, sliced
1/4 cup fresh basil leaves

Watermelon Mint

1 cup cubed watermelon
1/4 cup fresh mint leaves

Pineapple-Orange with Ginger

1/2 cup cubed pineapple
1/2 an orange, sliced
1 tablespoon freshly-grated ginger

What You’ll Need:

1-quart jars
Wooden Spoon
Agave or another sweetener (optional)

What to Do:

Choose which recipe you’re making — or come up with your own combination — and gather all of the ingredients.
Place the fruit, herbs, and/or spices in the bottom of one of the glass jars, and muddle with a wooden spoon. (That basically means mash up the fruit in the bottom of the jar to release some of the flavor-filled juices.)
Fill the jar with water and give it a taste. (You can also fill the jar with seltzer water for a fizzy treat.) If you’d like something a bit sweeter, try adding some agave (and mix until dissolved).
Enjoy as-is or refrigerate overnight for maximum flavor.

I Got 1! Solavei Independent BAHM!

As a Solavei Independent BAHM (business at home mom) I'm now saving $20.00 a month on my cell phone bill. This really does work. It helps so many first of all to not have to pay so much every month for their cell phone bill and then second it helps to cut down on your

monthly cell phone bill and last but not in any way the least, it helps to earn money. The amount of money you earn depends on how many referrals you have but we have many that are earning upwards of $1,000 per month. I don't think there's too many people that can say they couldn't use an extra $1,000 per month.

Me? I'm shooting for more than $1,000 per month but I've been working on developing a strong mindset through the teachings of Jesus.

Business At Home Moms (BAHM) Don't Let Your Circumstances Rule Your Life!

Watching videos that moms, like Leigh Ann Dutton, create is so helpful to me. Even if we're in a different kind of business at home, what we do, as moms and/or grandmothers, to keep growing our business is a lot of times, the same.

Since I've connected with God I can truly see how I used to let my circumstances rule my life compared to today where I have circumstances but I don't rely on them anymore to rule the way my day goes or the way my business goes.

I look to God.

Watch this video. 

What she says connected with me in a big way. I have taken part in so many businesses at home and none of them panned out for me except our families Natural Maui business. Although I love what we do, we make seaglass, shell, and upcycled glass jewelry, I know that this business is not what I want to carry me through my life. 

I Love network marketing. All the doodoo on the internet about network marketing only makes me think of how many moms are missing out staying with their kids at home when they listen to that doodoo.

At the same time I realize that we aren't quite conditioned to succeed in a business at home. Couple that with the mounds of worry we have every day with keeping up with bills, that's all that fills our mind.

That is letting our circumstances rule our life. What we think about throughout the day. Our actions throughout the day. 

I'm not saying we should forget about our responsibilities, of course not! But we shouldn't let the negativity and worry over them fill our minds either.

My 1st Blessing came to me in 1986, my oldest daughter.
My latest Blessing came to me Feb. 17, 2014, my granddaughter.

Know the bills exist and need to be paid but focus on all that we have to be thankful for. All the Blessings that God has favored us with. It is amazing and such a relief how much this really lightens the load and allows me to continue to work on building my business at home!

That's what we're not taught in schools. How to focus on being thankful, on the Blessings that God gives us every day.

Moms, if you want to work from home. If you have a burning desire to raise your children yourself at home I urge you to listen to this advice that was given to us thousands of years ago. Change from thinking negative all day long to continually being thankful, let it run through your mind all day, and see how your life will begin to change.

When you do that, you can now have some time to focus on your business at home which is not that easy to do. It requires persistence, faith, and patience. It's not a get rich quick scheme. For some it might happen fast but for most of us it is like any other business, it takes time.

Here's the business at home I've chosen to be an Independent Member of and that is Solavei! Great cell phone service, great leaders and support, great business!

Single Moms Building A Successful Business At Home

Single moms, unless they come from a family or have friends that can help them as they build a business at home, have a struggle that is harder than a couple building a business.

For one thing, we lack the money needed to buy product every month, a requirement in most network marketing companies if you want to collect any payments earned through recruiting.

Most of us are busy staying current with our bills like the electricity (a big one for me), water, phone (landline and/or cell), sundries, toiletries, clothes for the kids, school stuff, the list goes on and on, maybe a car payment, gas for the car...

Finally, a company has come along that makes it possible for us to reach our "Big Dreams!" 


Click on the link above to watch a short clip on what Solavei is.

 I'm excited to be an Independent Solavei BAHM because like I said in the beginning of this post, it's hard enough to stay afloat with bills and necessities then to have to put out more money to build a business, it's not as easy as people make it sound. 

Nicely, as an Independent Solavei BAHM you are not forking out anymore money you simply continue paying your monthly cell phone service bill but this time, when you refer someone else to use Solavei cell phone service you get a referral fee.

No forking out more money per month while you build a business that can either help you stay at home with your children or quit your second job.

Be Careful What You Think. It Affects Your Business At Home

I know people hear this over and over but sometimes it's hard for it to sink in. We get so mired in our every day circumstances that sometimes when we come upon an article like this or a post on Facebook it jars us to remember to feed our minds healthy thoughts.

This is nothing new. It's wisdom from the Bible, Proverbs 4:23 ~

This is a photo I took of my grandson on his 4th birthday at Olowalu here on Maui. What is he thinking here? He's not really concentrating on his birthday. We have it all set up in Spider Man theme and he hasn't even paid much attention to it. His focus is on swimming and having fun splashing around with his cousins. His thoughts are of pure fun and every once in awhile we go through these photos of his birthday and he's always reminded of what a great day he had. We are helping him to learn to be thankful and to focus on good thoughts so as he grows he attracts more positive into his life.

We, as business at home moms (BAHMs) should also be doing this. Think of anything that is pleasant, especially when worry starts to set in and negativity starts to choke your brain.Many of us have grown up with negativity as the focus but nowadays we're learning different and although it's hard to switch the thinking once you get the hang of it it becomes easier and easier.

That doesn't mean that we'll never have a negative thought in our life again but it does mean it gets easier to get rid of that negative thought.

This is imperative when building a business at home because we have so much negativity around us, for instance, places like Craigslist won't let us advertise in their classifieds. Why? I think it's so silly especially since there are millions of people building businesses at home. Especially since it can help moms and even dads stay home and raise their children. It's not only Craigslist but locally there's Maui Bulletin Board which puts us in the same league as a  pyramid scheme when by now ALL intelligent people should know that building a business at home is not a pyramid scheme.

But things like that peeve me and when it does I switch my thinking to what I have to be thankful for and there's a lot I'm Blessed with. Would take me ages to say all of it! 

Here's another bloggers article on this very same subject that just hit home with me. It was like she took the words right out of my mouth. Please read! It's an article by Marion Licchiello on her blog "Get Motivated, Get Fit!"   Gratitude Can Change Your Life! (Part 2)

I Love to support Business At Home Moms (BAHM) so if you have an article you'd like to share that will help another business at home mom (BAHM) build her business please let me know the link

Sharing Solavei and Enjoing the Day No Matter What

This is my grandson showing his famous double shaka. He's outside gardening with his Aunty Rel. He's always so happy and gets so excited when he's doing things. 

Being a business at home mom (BAHM) I found this quote by Joel Osteen Ministries to be very helpful and to reinforce in my brain what I know but have to be reminded of and that is my mindset. Everyone knows that building a business at home doesn't become successful by sitting on our duffs all day. We have to get out and talk to people about it just like we do when we are sharing a good movie we saw, or a great restaurant we ate at. 

The problem comes when we talk to someone about our business and they don't get as excited as we think they should. If we don't prepare our mind before we talk to people about our business we might feel down when we get a "no, not interested." But in order to get that one all important "yes" we need to filter out the "no's."

Thank you Joel Osteen for this wonderful reminder!
