Stay At Home Business – Mom Entrepreneur Shows how to Start a Stay at Home Business
Stay At Home Business
Question by mattcra: Stay at home and profitable business?
I need to make a change in what I do. I see all these stay at home jobs and internet million dollar businesses that make you skeptical. I understand an investment will need to be made, but is there actually a good stay at home business that won’t rob you blind?
Answer by Elaine G
I know what you mean about all the business’s it is hard to know which to trust, I have opened a child care and it was doing well until just recently. Many of my parents have either lost jobs or have had hours cut. I even had a parent that was not making ends meet with her current job and had to leave the city and move in with her parents. It is still a good career move though and I am happier than I have been in a long time. It allows me the luxury of staying home and keeping my house clean. Dinner is always home cooked and on the table ( this has also helped me loose weight, no more fast food) and I can care for my grand kids here and know that they are safe. It was a win win for me. If this might be something that you ar interested in I highly recommend it.
Good Luck 🙂

Friday-Love! ~ Bug Eyed Strange Guy Fawkes Edition

Can you feel it?
That feelin’ of Fridayness?
What a crazy ass week wasn’t it?
I’m startin’ to think that they’re all crazy.
They’ll leave you kinda lookin’ like this guy if you let ’em.
Dude was cool.
He was walking down Milwaukee Avenue carrying a trombone case.
In my experience guys walking down the street carrying trombone cases at midnight are either crazy trombone players or they’re drug dealers carrying a trombone case filled with marijuana.
The devil’s weed.
Sweet Mary Jane.
Packed full in sandwich baggies three fingers thick.
I used to smoke pot in college.
I think the last time I bought it I bought it from a guy carrying a trombone case down the street.
In Honolulu Hawaii.
I was on my way to Bangkok and the plane hadda stop in the islands to get some gas and I decided I’d get off and explore for a couple of days.
Catch the next one.
You could do that in those days because people were cool.
They didn’t fly airplanes into buildings or butt search you when you flew anywhere domestically like they do now.
I rented some crap ass Suzuki Samuri tin foil jeep like thing for twenty nine bucks a day and slept in that piece of junk all over that island.
Kept getting kicked off of pineapple plantations by security guards in the middle of the night after the cops threatened to throw my ass in jail for sleepin’ on the beach.
Honolulu was really kind of boring if you’re not with a hot chick on your honeymoon and I’d heard about this legendary weed called ‘Maui Wowwie’ and figured maybe I could score some there.
Maui wasn’t too far away I thought.
I’m glad I did good in geography class.
I hit all the bad neighborhoods and people tried to sell me every other vice in the world but nobody had any of the sensimilian rasta love herbs I was lookin’ for.
I’d pretty much given up on the whole idea and instead I chartered a boat and went marlin fishing for the day and enjoyed me some of the big blue ocean and since I didn’t catch a marlin I decided to hit some fish joint on the beach where you could grill up your own marlin steak.
It was an epic dinner and when I was walkin’ back to that crap ass Suzuki Samuri I see this guy in a tie dyed Grateful Dead shirt carrying a trombone case walkin’ down the street with a smile on his face and lookin’ like he didn’t have a care in the world.
If you know anything about anything you know THAT guy’s carryin’.
So as I walked by him I whispered ‘weed?’
The guy stopped in his tracks and turned around and said ‘buyin’ or sellin’?’
‘Lookin” I answered.
You know… just in case he was Hawaii 5-0 undercover or somethin’.
Under the barbaric laws of the time they still put people in prison for havin’ that.
Oh wait… they still do.
Dealer man shot back ‘follow me.’
We walked into an alley next to the Honolulu Hilton and he opened that trombone case and holy smokes the thing was filled to capacity with the illegal green budness.
All neatly organized in rows according to weight and grade.
The guy was a professional.
Smelled like the Hienecken factory or a skunk farm right when he opened it I swear.
He was a full service pot dealer… probably specializing in the tourist market and he even had packages of rolling papers for the convenience of his customers.
‘I do a lot of business with the japanese’ he said ‘they’re my biggest customers.’
I picked up a bag of his produce after he extolled it’s virtues, promising me ‘you ain’t never smoked weed this good.’
We sat on the Hilton’s air conditioning unit there in the alley and he insisted on twisting up a fatty with me and we smoked it right there.
Good gahd he was right.
I had never smoked weed like that before and I never have since.
That stuff made me ‘see’ music.
I fell right on my ass off the air conditioning unit and he packed up his trombone case and headed off into the sultry Honolulu night looking for more business.
I found my shitball Suzuki Samuri and headed to the north part of the island where he said the waves were supposed to be killer in the morning.
No one was on the roads and I drove real slow… waiting for stop signs to turn green and everything.
I kept my eyes open for a twenty four hour burrito shack.
It had turned into a beautiful night and the stars were incredible to sleep under.
I slept behind some strip mall and woke up feeling like shit.
A day on the beach cured me of all of that and with that little bag of the ganja I made a whole bunch of new friends.
People could smell that stuff from a mile away.
Everyone was happy and the livin’ was good…
but I hadda catch a 747 to Bangkok late that afternoon and I headed back to the airport in the flimsy little Suzuki Samuri I’d been calling home.
It’s not a good idea to travel internationally with marijuana on your person so I finished off that stuff right before I got to the rental return at the airport…
I flicked the last half of my last happy cigarette carelessly into the breeze and said goodbye to Hawaii and that frickin’ Suzuki Samuri with a smile and some really red eyes.
And a terrible hankering for a bag of Doritos.
You know that joint I flipped outta the car on the way to the airport?
It never left the car.
It landed in my camera bag and melted itself to the top of it on the inside of the flap where you open and close it.
Where it remained while I went through customs in two countries.
I got a little extra scrutiny when I landed in Tokyo after spendin’ some time in Bankgok.
Dogs were sniffin’ all my stuff and everything.
But they never found that half a joint in my camera bag.
I found it six months later.
Me and a buddy finished it off and reminisced about the United States and then walked around the streets of Osaka feelin’ really good and havin’ a new appreciation for japanese letters in neon.
I’m not sayin’ old boy in this picture’s got anything to do with marijuana dealin’…
He coulda just been walkin’ back from a trombone gig or something.
But he looked like he was really feelin’ the love if you know what I mean.
He sure reminded me of my buddy ‘Budman’ in Honolulu.
I hope you’re feelin’ a different kinda love today.
One that doesn’t bug your eyes out like that.
I hope you got some cush plans for the weekend and you’re feelin’ like a million bucks ’cause you survived that crazy freakin’ week without too much collateral damage to your soul.
We made it to Friday.
The rest of the week can kiss my ass.
I’m feelin’ the love you know.
I hope you have the best weekend.

Despite what some say, there are legitimate home businesses out there. Whatever you find, make sure you check out the company and know exactly what you’ll be doing. You’re right about the investment, but don’t give up your life savings or anything to get into something. And don’t fall for anyone telling you that you’ll get rich quick. That was a big red flag for me. The one I found had great credentials and costs less than $ 50 to start, so I figured I was pretty safe at least give it a shot. And, I love what I do. Four years later, I’m still doing the same business, working around my 2 teens and 2 preschoolers and am able to make enough income to pay the bills when my husband is laid off from his construction job for the winter. So, they are out there, just take your time and ask questions, you’ll find the right fit. Feel free to e-mail me if you have more questions.
Ask Your Doctor if Marijuana Might be Right For You
I’m just sayin’… Friday-Love!
Happy Friday! 🙂
Everything about this is marvelous, in every way.
Still, I doubt Honolulu is boring. No matter what happens topsides, put on a mask and stick your head under the dock. There’s the end of boring right there!
Wonderful photos, wonderful writing. Great tales masterfully told.
And good morning to you my friend!
[http://www.flickr.com/photos/light_seeker] I’d fave this one too, but apparently I’m not allowed to see it.
Friday-Love! Jamaican style!
Sweet, Friday-Love!!! Weekend’s only as good as you make it!!
Friday love indeed… What a story! Have a great weekend 🙂
It’s gonna be a saweet weekend… but I’ll Never Smoke Weed With Willie Again.
Willie givin’ us a little bit of the Chicago-Love!
I decided to run for whatever this week… but then I realized that was a stupid idea.
But I think I came up with some pretty good campaign signs anyway.
hahahahahaha…AWESOME story dude!!!
Next week I’ll tell you about the time I smoked something in Bangkok and ended up barricading myself in my thirty dollar a night hotel room with all the furniture piled up against the door in a fit of paranoia and called my buddy Jeffe collect in the United States to have him talk some sense into me.
‘You did what? What are you doing in Bangkok and why did you just call me collect?’
I think Tiger met up with Trombone guy earlier that night.
[http://www.flickr.com/photos/deszedol] Totally! I changed the title. Rock on!
Because the Night
Spent some time reflecting this week on why people hurt each other
Morgan sold me a chiller pair of new shoes…
Now people carrying trombone cases down the street actually say hello to me.
I had a sobering conversation with my friend Dave.
I’m still worried about him.
I caught a case of amnesia but it’s cool now.
I’ve been taking a lot of Vitamin C.
I didn’t wanna remember that stuff anyway.
Yo Maria… you rock… from what I remember… I mean I got a bunch of pictures on my camera that look like it was a really good time…
I got no idea.
Love him!! 🙂
But if you mix it in brownies it’s okay, right?? 😉
Friday Love! ♥

months later in fast forward.. I love you.. You are really a NEAT CHICA~!
rofl. Yes. I think I love you toooo much. It’s almost unhealthy.
You asked were lamps not invented back then? Do I look like a dinosaur in
I’ve spent a looooot of time integrating things so you can probably start
from the beginning if you want to see things slowly get added like the
intro, etc. 🙂
Lol. I can’t believe you watched my very first video. If you watch a few
down the road you’ll see me breathing in the outtakes like a crazy person.
I was soooo nervous. I’m a little bit nervous that you’re looking at my
past videos. Some of them are DOOZIES!
I love Videocreatorstv.
I am a bit of a poor navigator lol can you email me your blog site if
that’s ok. Mrs.email@example.com. I have never really been good at
anything I really would like to never work for another person again. I
don’t actually have fb right now.
Hey lady. I’m so excited I found this video! I’ve been watching a ton of
your vids, but I want to watch them in order, from the first one to today.
Is the best way to do that by watching on your blog and working backwards?
Hi renae. I am definitely inspired. I have never done anything with my life

home mom for first time ever living on unemployment. I really would like to
start some kind of business but be super successful. I needed advice. I
don’t know where to begin. Please help

Ditto to the naturally curly annoying zoola doll hair to me hahaha
