3 of 6 Ways to Make Money at Home Quickly

I’ve had the pleasure of being a work at home for the last eight years. As both a service professional (web designer) and information entrepreneur (I teach digital marketing and sales), I personally believe the fasted legitimate way to make money online is by selling your services to people who need it and information to people who want to buy it. But as they say, there is more than one way to skin a cat. I recently came across an interesting article by the Work At Home Woman on ‘6 Top Ways to Make Money from Home Quickly’. Three of these strategies include getting paid for things that you are already doing, selling used items and/or selling your services online.

I can personally vouch for a few of the items on her list. For example, you can definitely get paid for some of your online activities. As someone who shops online all the time, I love the eBates Rebates Program. It’s free to join and you essentially get essentially get cash back on average between 2%-10% for the items you purchase at your favorite online stores through eBates. An added benefit to joining is their affiliate program; you can receive $25 for each person who signs up through you. Before I shop on Amazon, eBay, Walmart, Orbitz and I ton of other websites, I always first log into my eBates account to ensure my purchases are tracked. Between the cash back perks and affiliate program I get ebates checks in the mail regularly, so I know this one definitely works for those looking to bring in extra money or get back some of the money that you spend.

Selling my web design services and information products are among my best income generators. If you have an in demand skill and are looking to earn money online, I highly recommend online marketplaces that connect freelancers and service professionals to people in need of their help. One of those sites that I often recommend that is also featured in this article is Fiverr, an online marketplace where you can sell your services for $5 and up. This is one of several websites that I often recommend to entrepreneurs looking new gigs and clients or low budget resources to build their own businesses on a budget.

I have a nine year old son with boxes of old close that I desperately need to get rid of. In between spring cleaning trips to salvation army I toyed with the idea of opening an eBay store, but never got around to it. At some point I discovered ThredUp, which is an interesting alternative to eBay, so I signed up and am hoping to get started with this one soon. thredUP is a way you can sell your old clothing, shoes, and handbags.

Beyond boxes of old clothes, I personally have my share of electronic gadgets that need to go. One website on this list that I found particularly interesting was Decluttr; an online platform where you can sell CDs, DVDs, and video games. These days I listen to most of my music via Pandora and practically watch everything online via Netflix, Hulu and Vudu, so I am long over do for a serious CD / DVD clean up session. Now that I know that I can get paid for getting rid of these things, I am ready to let the digital decluttering process begin.

Beyond knowing that it pays to sell my own products and services, I can personally say that I’ve signed up to a few of these websites and it is possible to make money from them. At the end of the day you just have to try them to find out what works for you and set realistic expectations. Some of these are simply good of you want to make a little extra on the side, while others can be real revenue generators for you if you learn how to use them the right way.

Please note this post does include my affiliate links to those companies that I personally use, trust and highly recommend.

Home Office Must-have: Quirky Converge USB – Clean up Your Wires!

I remember a time when the USB ports on my laptop were simply there to look cute. Seriously, with all the mobile gadgets and accessories the average person now carries, having at least 3-4 USB ports has gone from optional to essential. The downside to having all of these wonderful electronic goodies is the come with a boat load of wires and items that need to be constantly charged. Fortunately, Quirky Converge 4-port USB charging station is the perfect desktop accessory for just this issue. It’s sleek design allows you to easily charge multiple devices while keep those nasty wires neatly hidden away. I use mine daily to charge my iphone and ipad simultaneously. The Quirky Converge is the perfect organizer / multi-device charging station rolled up into one cool tool.

The 7 Keys to Triple X Your Success for Women Entrepreneurs

The 7 Keys to Triple X Your Success for Women Entrepreneurs

As you go through the day to day responsibilities of  being an entrepreneur at some point you develop your own system; a unique way of doing things that helps you increase sales, optimize your productivity and maximize your success. When I sat down and took a close look at my processes, I realized that as a team of one I taught myself how to do the job of three and get these done three times faster. And as a dug deeper into my methods to making money online I soon discovered one interesting truth; at practically every point of my entrepreneurial journey thus far I have developed strategies that helped me to not just double, but triple my sales. To the question, how do you I do this? For me it’s all about “Triple X Success”.

In a nutshell my SistaSense Triple X Success system is about three things: learning how to get things done three times faster, tripling sales and using my 3K Challenge as a way to achieve steady business growth.

When I think about the concept of Triple X Success I believe it comprises of 7 essential steps that every entrepreneur must go through on the path to actualizing one’s purpose while tapping into your profit potential.

Building Your Confidence
Ask for What You Really Want and Work For It

Building Your Core
Define Your Business Until You Clearly Know Who You Are & Who You Serve

Building Your Client-Base
Create Offers that Meet the Needs of New and Existing Buyers

Building Your Content
Develop Free & Premium Material that fosters Client Attraction and Sales

Building Your Community
Create your tribe of Loyal Fans, Customers, Partners, and Supporters

Building Your Cashflow
Tap into Your Profit Potential, Sales, Investment Capital, and Savings

Building Your Courage:
Find the strength to commit to your goals in order to overcome all odds

As a highly driven entrepreneur you may find yourself trying to constantly out-do yourself and get better at being you. Of these 7 steps take a moment to reflect on and share those areas in which you’ve feel like you’ve made the most strides or are currently striving to work on.

Crazy Things Entrepreneurs Do: Who Are You Really Focusing On?


Today my day began with one powerful message:

Focus on Finding Your Fire Starters
Not the waiters or procrastinators who like what you’ve got but are never quite ready to get in.

First let that sink in…
A few weeks ago I shared my focus word for the new year is ‘Different‘.

This morning I took down practically ALL of my trainings and starter kits (an early spring cleaning of sorts) with only only 4 remaining for now (the last few are coming down in a few days too).

This is crazy. I know.
Who takes down offers?

I’ve always left ALL of them up there, waiting for you until you were ready for them.

But this year is all about doing things differently.

Truth Be Told
There will always be folks who tell you your stuff is GREAT and how much they can’t WAIT to participate! Then crickets… you eagerly await them, even find ways to accommodate them; pulling out your hair until that final moment when they fail to appear.

In Their Absence Let One Truth Become Crystal Clear
Business runs on action takers NOT active talkers.

Talkers seldom show up. Check the folks you find yourself listening to because breaking your back to please others back fires more often than many of us care to admit.

Commit to Focus on Finding Your Fire Starters
Everything has a season.

As a recovering ‘Over Accomodator’ I know this is the season to do things differently.

Sometimes its hard to set hard deadlines, take things down or even say ‘no’. But waiting for the waiters, delays ones ability to grow.

Different 2016 Has Begun
This year ….
I choose Action Takers over Active Talkers.
I choose to stop creating accommodations for those who continue to delay.
I choose to focus on finding ‘Doers’ while Firing Up the Doer inside of you!
I choose these three things, perhaps you should too.

Know that Opportunities Expire
I am truly sorry if you miss or missed out on the SistaSense goodies that are now gone, BUT if you are a fire starter ready to work with me – this is where we are:

The last Triple X Success Virtual Workshop is next weekend
Blogging for Business 2016 Mastermind is Happening Now
Registration for Sweet Retreats Ends in One Week

In a few days these links will be gone too.

We are one day away from the second month of this new year.

Time waits for no one, which means waiting is no longer an option.

Let’s not spend this year focused on folks who aren’t quite ready to tap into their greatness.

Focus on Finding Your Fire Starters

Focus on Firing Up the Fire Starter In you.

This my plan. Hopefully it inspires you to continue working on yours (smile).

To your continued success,
