Work From Home Job Ideas

Start brainstorming about your work from home job.

Many working moms long for jobs that can be done from home. Imagine a ten second commute into your home office where you could work, make money and be near your children. Home based jobs allow you to spend more time with your children. Many of the best home jobs for moms also allow mothers to have flexible schedules whereby they can adjust their work routine to accommodate their children’s school needs and extracurricular activities.

Not sure what you can do from home to make a living? How can you find a job you can do from home?

While we all can’t be writers or bakers, keep in mind that you can use one of these popular home-based jobs as a starting point to create the unique job that will suit your lifestyle and financial needs.

Service Jobs

work from home

Whether you can plan a wedding for 200 people or provide tech help for computer dummies, service jobs make the best home jobs for moms and often accommodate a flexible schedule. If you decide to provide a service, choose one in which you have great interest and are equipped to perform. So don’t start a computer repair business if you’ve never fixed a computer before. And if you burn box cakes, don’t try to run a custom bake shop from your home.

If you’re not sure what service you can provide, make a list of the things you do well, then try to convert these strong points into the best business you can operate from your home.

For example, if you formerly worked in public relations and always enjoyed writing, launch a freelance press release writing business from your home. Research the competition, set your rate and network, if possible, in the industry you choose.

Research what you stand to earn per week, month and year in your service-oriented business before you launch it.

In addition, hairdressers and manicurists who used to work in salons, but want a more flexible schedule, can designate two or three days per week to service clients in their homes. It’s best to designate a specific area of your home for these services so as not to have people roaming throughout your house or apartment.

Sales Jobs

From a cosmetic representative to a gift basket designer, there are many sales oriented jobs that can be both profitable and easy to for moms to do from home. If you are unsure about the type of sales job that will work best for you, try to find something you’ll enjoy selling.

If you’re not familiar with the sales business you’d like to launch from home, try to identify a niche. Seek out a product that is in demand in your area. You can research online the types of sales jobs that net the biggest profits. It’s also wise to research how you’ll be able to ship products, and you’ll need to learn the most efficient way to do so. There also are sales jobs that offer products, like insurance policies, that can be sold from home. Many companies will allow representatives to work from home.

Creative Jobs

If you have a knack for taking photos, think about launching a freelance photography career.

You can set up a studio in your home, and take photos of everyone from newborns to prom queens from your home studio.

If you were formerly a journalist, think about launching a freelance writing career from home. Many magazines, websites, and newspapers use freelance writers to provide most of the copy in these publications.

Advertising copy witting is another form of writing that can be done at home. In fact, the more versatile you are in a creative career, the more work you will likely obtain. So if you can write everything from press releases to full-length magazine articles, then you’ll be able to seek a full or part-time job as a writer from home.

Online Jobs

If you want to launch an online business, think of a service or products you can offer online. This can be everything from a life coach or wedding planner to a custom cookie maker.

You can broaden your market and buying audience by launching an online business. You can attract many more clients by having a website that markets the products or services you sell.

3 Tips to Prevent Inquiry When Losing Weight

One thing that may come to mind, especially if you have had a previous injury is , how can I prevent injury or progressing  with a current injury while losing weight or building your body.With some simple Small steps you can reduce the risk of injuries , decrease the up and down movement of the body and lesson the amount of energy absorbed at the hip, knees and ankles.
If a person is overweight by more than 80 pounds, please take these Pre-cautions more serious and  you can benefit tremendously by applying these steps.

Avoid Injuries on your Weight Lost or Body Building JourneyStep One:

Make Small Changes!

Yes to jump in and cut the weight and muscles sounds like it is the way to get going and get to your best body. However, jumping into it is a high risk for getting injured. As your body has to adjust and  is still getting accustomed to the new muscles being used. Especially if you are not a regular exerciser or have not been a sports or active person in the past. And/or have put on tons of  weight like 50 + weight gain from being pregnant or possibly going through a depression where you lost control.

Don’t just jump into it. Listen to your body, work on on your mindset   and work your way up to beast mode.

Research shows that people who make small, Permanent changes in their food choices and physical activity each week lose significantly more belly fat and reduce the risk for injuries, over those who simply diet and or just work out.

This is because small changes lead to healthy behaviors that last.

Step 2:

Stretch

did you stretch today

It’s easy to forget to stretch. It’s often overlooked because the results are not as visible as lifting, running, boxing and squatting or so you thought.

Stretching keeps the muscles flexible, strong, and healthy, and we need that flexibility to maintain a range of motion in the joints. Without it, the muscles shorten and become tight. This is what causes an injury.

Not only can stretching reduce injury, but it can help your posture, help send oxygen to the brain helping you think clearer. It helps you body feel good, because of the circulation and better blood flow.

Stretching also, loosens up the joints, creating a leaner physique!

Lastly, if applied to your life

Step Three:

Get a Good Night’s Sleep

Numerous studies have shown that when people are better rested, they are less likely to get injured from physical fitness and they are less likely to gain unwanted weight. A Canadian study found that people who averaged 7 to 8 h ours of sleep a night were 35 percent less likely to gain more than 10 pounds than those that only slept 5 to 6 hours a night. The sleepy heads also had nearly 60 percent more fat around their middle.

Don’t Believe the Hype if you sleep less you are a better hustler or doing something better than those that get a good 7 hour night sleep.

You need proper rest to restore and align your mind body and spirit.

Don’t skip regular sleeping well !

The First Month Postpartum

The first month is the  toughest Month from bringing your baby home.
Not only are you emotional, your physically healing. Your body has just performed an amazing task. Forming a human, Opening and closing, now resetting.

The First month is the toughest month.

post partum 2As I walked around like a zombie. I had nothing together. All I could think about was feeding the baby. Food, Food, Food, that was the subject life revolved around. Of course, assure the baby is ok and comfortable. I literally could not sleep. I took cat naps, 2 hours here, an hour there, but my mind was awake. One slight movement from My son and my eyes were WIDE OPEN. Touching him, checking his temperature, re tucking him in his blanket, making sure he wasn’t hungry.

Breastfeeding is no joke. It is a full time job, especially during this month.

This was my first time nursing, with my first son, I did not.

Ahh is what I felt.

The Joyful hadn’t really kicked in.

I was scared, yet in love, somewhat confident, but insecure because of the 14 year gap of having Musaee, from Anthony.  Having a lack of remembering: although I had mothers instinct, I was swaying in confidence from day to day, with each moment and growth milestone.

I had some days of uncontrollable cry’s. I couldn’t stop it, Musaee’s dad tried his hardest to help me, but he wasn’t’ fully sure how.He would say ” what will make you feel better?” I honestly didn’t know and  I didn’t even know why I was crying! This was a common symptom called PPD, that I later found out. Which was why I had experienced  all those roller-coaster emotions.

My baby was gaining weight, he was developing as he should!

My tiny baby was a good latcher, and a good eater, BUT he spit up so much, that it had me worried. Possibly I thought, My breast-milk was not agreeing with him. So, I took him in to the Doctor and found out he had Acid Reflux. Things got a bit more complicated, as he was put on medication. I had to customize my diet, to rid of acidic foods that could spark up more acid in his little tummy. Watch him extra closely at night, because he laid on his back and the spit up could come at anytime. My fear was his coughing in it, so my sleep got further away from me, once this was discovered.

IMG_4788

During this month, we also relocated as well from Los angeles to about an hour away back to our hometown. Like the saying says, it takes a village to raise a child and that is the truth!

Any help during the first month is a blessing!

I survived, However, this first month is the most nerve wrecking,  life shocking, readjusting and unstable month after having your child. Especially for first time moms.

Thank you for taking the time to read my first month postpartum, with musaee. My personal Ahh joyful journey.

To share in your own personal ahh joyful journey. Get on our list, for the release of a Community of Parents that you can relate with!

The Beginning of the Pregnancy Journey, Uncategorized

Fully Enjoying the Journey

Ok,

So because I am a Business owner, have taken pride in my outfits, accessories, hair styles and the way I do my makeup in the past or should I say, just to post a picture on social media.

I  haven’t really shown the real and raw version of how I normally spend most of my days as an entrepreneur. Which consists of workout clothes and really not getting dressed for half of the day. Mainly due to  the enjoyment of having that option, being a homebody and  due to the multiple tasks that need to be done on the internet. I can spend hours accomplishing things on the computer, which really can appear like I am not doing much, but boy oh boy am I really setting the future.

I’m sure speculations have gone up out of this world, now revealing a new raw side of me without all the glitz and glam

Yes I am pregnant, yes I am HAPPY and yes I  still take pride in my appearance.  BUT, I am enjoying my natural beauty and the fact that I don’t need to get dressed up like a fashion show every single day!

Whether you are a Mommy already, full-time employee, or business owner, you can’t say you don’t enjoy some days where you don’t need to be dressed and can just enjoy you, in your natural form.

This is a subject that one can relate with or not, however I do know that there is enjoyment of working in your pjs, or running errands in workout clothes.

Being pregnant, you lack more energy that you would have when you are not.

I won’t say that is an excuse, but I will say personally some days I just want to leave on that t-shirt, yoga pants and flip flops and not even think of getting ready for the day. All while accomplishing all the things I need to.

Ahh the joy in the journey.

Here are some raw versions of how I spend about 3-5 days out of the week and completely enjoy it!

 

Thank you for stopping by.

Modern Day Pregnancy Views

“16 and Pregnant?????” 

Media like this is truly detrimental to our society. In my honest opinion, I can’t stand tv shows, marketing and exposure of promoting to young people, what is truly not ok.

Why  are programs like 16 and pregnant socially acceptable, why is this allowed to be promoted to our teenagers, which are actually still children! Regardless of how they look, or carry their selves, or even think they know what they truly want in life, they aren’t fully developed into adults. 

For some that know a bit about my story, they may think I sound a bit hypocritical.  Yes I was 16 years old when I had my first son, but the difference was I did not think it was socially acceptable nor did I have the desire to want a child at such a young age. I did not think 16 and pregnant was a pretty picture or a shot at being famous. I was a child, living with my parents, playing sports in high school, in 10th grade, into fashion and friends.

Ok so yes I did have sex, but no I was not regularly sexual active, nor was that the priority on my mind. I was exploring my body, like most teenagers. There is no excuse but I think you can distinguish the differences of a”opps” from losing virginity and I really want a baby because they are so cute.

beach life me and pop Because I had no knowledge of my teenage body or the changes that would occur during pregnancy, I didn’t become aware of my pregnancy until I was ending my 2nd trimester and headed into my 3rd. So again, a very rare and miracle type of situation and Chapter in my life.

Today our 16 year olds look like they are 21 years old. However, if you think of who their parents are, which are mostly people in their early to mid 30s. So just imagine the image “Kids raising Kids.” Young parents are even asking for grand-babies and find their-selves grandparents before 40, mind blowing isn’t it?

A Movie I was recently watching, struck my nerve and confirmed further my strong disagreement toward the worlds views on this matter.

A teenager played a role and said to some older men ” Let’s party some babies into us.” Really?? Wow!

This is acceptable Today?

This is humor Today?

This is the World today and honestly I DO NOT Agree, won’t, can’t and will not get on board with what is socially acceptable.

Especially in the  targeted  young viewers for the Leading focused Media & Entertainment Industry.

Ultimately this can  manifestation of these young peoples reality. No No NO.

change the world not diapers.PNG

What happened to Childish worries,  What Extracurricular Activity you are Signing up for? What your home-girl(s)  are doing over the weekend?, What college You want to attend?, or new skill you want to develop?

What happened to Discovery of self  becoming into a Woman? .. Before bringing life into the world?  Now I can’t Say that these young girls are non-existent, however I am saying its far and wide.

I can’t remember anyone just walking around  my age with a child. If they had one no one knew or they moved away.  I feel that to many  especially young girls follow the crowd in the awkward  teenage stage. However that is why us Parents, have to develop Leaders, not Followers, although you may have to love a Follower. You also need to be sure you as a parent do your part. 🙂

I have had many instances and occurrences of making general conversation with young girls.

I’m more or less completely shocked at some of the things that come our of their mouth so boldly and without much care. I believe Social Media and the Convenience – Rich Fame Baby is a Trend Generation has a huge impact on why the younger generation is so sexually driven.

Sadly too many lacking goals and direction! Too Many Lack the proper guidance or parenting as well. But that is a very touchy subject, so lets back out of that. 🙂

Experts and statistics  prove result of our teenagers ( 16-19 years old.)

Fame is desire more than Academic Achievement, exploring Feelings of Pleasure are higher on their Priority  list, than having discovery of something new.

I could really go on and on, but I’ll  stop there.

If this post reaches, just one young person thinking a child is their best option in life.

I hope this post can help Change your Decision.

Young Girls, You are Innocent  and Beautiful and you have a Whole Life of

Infinite Possibilities !

Having a Baby is not a achievement at your age. The likelihood of  being a Single Mother is high and honestly is not fun, nor will it build your self-esteem.

Not fun, nor do you deserve, even the possibility of having to experience Parenting and Motherhood without the Father actively in the Child’s life.

The experts have done Testing and the Statistics are 93% of Young Couples of 16 years old Do NOT get married nor do they stay together long, after getting pregnant!

Don’t worry about what you don’t have to worry about.

Go seek your Dreams, Find Who you are, Who God intended you to me. Explore Life. Discover Yourself. Don’t rush into a Life you Won’t Truly be happy or fully satisfied with with in the end. Although, babies are very cute and can be fun and surround you in love.  They also are a huge responsibility that you truly should not be ready for.

Go to College, Travel the World, do some interesting intern work, create something.

Give that special one Time to find You that Agrees to Career  or Experience of Life, a better priority then later  build a family Together like You Deserve.

God’s Best for you Life.

Don’t cheat yourself or forget that.

It’s a blessing, Not a Lesson.

Being pregnant is the most beautiful times. Your creating a little person, you are manifesting what you desire inside of you.
Some women are overly emotional, but can’t control the crazy that can occur, some girls are too young and are not in good situation they had no business having sex.
But in reality if you are over 21, you get pregnant, you are of age enough to move you and believe Gods blessing you and it’s not a mistake or lesson.
Selfish emotion is Easy, but its not right.
As lightly as it’s taken, having a baby is beautiful, sacred, harmonious, lovely, amazing and a blessing.
blessing not a lesson
11 weeks pregnant, little baby bump.
I feel so blessed.

What is Prenatal Care?

Before becoming pregnant, you may have adopted good health habits to prepare, if you baby was planned. But if you didn’t start today.

One of the first steps is learn how to take care of yourself.

See your health care provider as soon as you think you may be pregnant.

Then continue your prenatal care throughout your pregnancy. Your health care provider will guide you and your partner through the pregnancy.healthy

During Prenatal care:

  • Your health care provider assesses the health of your pregnancy. Your doctor will calculate a “due date” between 38-41 weeks of pregnancy. Your due date is determined by counting 40 weeks from the first day of your last menstrual period.
  •  The progress of your pregnancy is checked. This includes your baby’s growth, changes in your weight and blood pressure, and your overall health and comfort.
  • Your health care provider may find new concerns and manage existing ones before problem occur.

When you are pregnant you’re a part of a team that includes you, your baby and your health care provider. Along with additional if they are around: the partner, your family and friends. As your work toward giving your baby a healthy start, relay on your team members for support.

What matters most is protecting your baby from this moment on.

IF you smoke, drink alcohol, or use drugs, now is the time to stop.

If you need help contact your health care provider.

Think about your being growing inside of you.

There is more to live for!

First Doctors appointment – Experience

April 5th, 2016 after 14 years, I walked into the Medical Office, with a feeling of nervousness, excitement and exploration.

I wasn’t sure what was what any more.docs 1.jpg
I walked up to the appointment desk and checked in. As my partner and I waited in the waiting room with anticipation of what was our “First Doctor’s appointment” going to be like. How is the Doctor, I wonder if shes nice.
So many things running through both of our minds.
I hear my name, or close to it.
“REentta Armon”
 Of course I knew that they were calling me, even though my name was mispronounced. .. It usually is. lol
We walked inside the “back office” area. I was greeted by a nice assistant. She took my weight and did my height. To my pleasant surprise not that bad, but my height was a bit of a shock, I thought I was taller.
Walking on, to our cozy little appointment room.
It looked very similar to a hospital so instantly I got a bit uneasy.
Not that I don’t like the hospital, but it surely brings back not so good memories.
My blood pressure was taken, temperature and then she went over the protocol for the first appointment.
I needed to get undressed and cultures needed to be taken.
Embarrassing with your partner right there with you legs spread open.
docs 2.jpg
So of course he left the room for my comfort.
My doctor was so kind, pleasant and was able to answer all my concerns.
Because this is my second pregnancy and my first pregnancy and health of my first child was not in the greatest condition, they would be taking extra precautions.
I was asked to pee more than once and got blood drawn of 7 tubes. Although I don’t mind the extra precautions, I’m nervous but

docs 4.jpg

yet so thrilled, regardless.
docs 3.jpg
Here is to 8 more months of new and exciting thrill, however with fingers crossed and prayers up, most importantly a healthy pregnancy and child.
