Online shopping has taken on a new form when it comes to buying that Persnickety dress your 3-month old is sure to grow out of as soon as she wears it once, or even the essentials such as cloth diapers and baby wearing gear. Facebook has its very own underground world of Buy/Sell/Trade groups (BST) for just about anything you can think of. An added bonus is that most items are marked down by 70-80% off the original price, and still in excellent condition. But, buyer beware: here are the top 10 tips for completing smooth transactions with other mama’s in these groups.

Having a website is a necessity for launching a new business. Whether you are a photographer, blogger, or a consultant, creating a place for potential customers to find you online is the most important step towards becoming an entrepreneur.
Launching a website is nothing like the Field of Dreams [If you build it, they will come]. Through hard work, a good foundation for SEO, and a solid hustler attitude your website can become a destination for identifying new customers and communicating with existing ones.
Once you’ve established a website, Google Analytics is how you know for certain if people are finding you, or if you are just shouting out in the void. At first Google Analytics can look like a foreign language, and while there are many things you can dive into in analytics, we’ve outlined the basics below.
You’re curious. You have always loved learning. Being a mom, especially to a demanding baby, can be mind numbing. Some days you go all day without an adult conversation, you watch more TV than you want, and you’re embarrassed about how much time you spend scrolling through social media feeds because all the baby wants to do is nurse. We’ve all been there. What happened to the woman who read interesting books and was always expanding her world view? Now all you think about is how much sleep you are not getting and you talk about poop more than you ever thought possible. Your brain feels like mush. It turns out there is a solution to “mom brain” that only requires a smart phone and 15 minutes a day. If you could continue learning and boost your brain power with your phone instead of letting social media suck the life out of you, wouldn’t you do it?
Technology has made life extremely convenient in so many ways, yet, there may be a hefty price to pay for it. Cell phones, computers, tablets, laptops, electronics, wireless devices, and all the other snazzy electronic devices around us have one or more dangerous components about them: EMF’s (electromagnetic emission frequency). This leads to massive energy interference which have adverse effects on the health of you, your children, and your teenagers (whom of which are more vulnerable)… unless you arm yourself with some dot gadgets.

“Seriously, what are you looking at? Who are you talking to?”
“No one. I’m just on Facebook.”
“Facebook, Instagram. You’re always on there. I don’t see what could possibly be so entertaining.”
It’s true. I’m on my phone quite a bit. And in talking to my other mommy friends, so are they. In fact, I can see that they’re active on Facebook right now, or how long they’ve been inactive. I can tell that they were up with the baby at 4am or that it’s dinner time because social media is radio silence. So why are moms on their phones all the time? What exactly is your wife doing as she stares into that bright screen?
These days, most of us find that whether we work out of an office or stay home with the kids, we’re all doing some form of “work” beyond parenting. Between blogging, shop-from-home retail shops, and various other endeavors, the modern mom is keeping busy to make extra money to support her family. Unfortunately, that often means that we must find creative ways to get the job done without a permanent work space. A mobile office is no longer just an option, it’s the norm.
With that in mind, today we’re unpacking 10 tips for making the most out of our time and space while working on-the-go.

If so, you may want to move along, because we’re here today to tell you all about a totally amazing new company who specializes in making photo books, for people who don’t have the actual time to make photo books.

In the past, home security meant locks and alarms. It was all about keeping the bad guys out and keeping our stuff safe while we were gone. The meaning of home security has definitely evolved, and keeping our homes secure isn’t just about the stuff anymore. Home security is staying up to date on the status of your home, and the people in it, while you’re away. Up until now, tracking the status of your home was a little complicated (and expensive). You could have professionals install cameras and sensors, and pay a monthly fee for monitoring, or you could go the DIY route, but lose out on the professional monitoring service. With advancements in technology, there is a new solution for home security that will keep your home safe without breaking the bank.
Bringing home a new baby is an exciting yet scary time in a parent’s life. The immediate intense love that you experience for such a tiny little human quickly brings to the forefront all of the worries and fears – is he getting enough milk, is she crying from pain, are their dirty diapers supposed to be that color? While all of those are legitimate questions new parents often wonder, worrying about your child while they sleep is consistently on the top of our list of biggest concerns. Thankfully, technology has long given us the ability to watch our baby as they sleep from anywhere in the home. Not only can we check in on baby with just the slightest glance at a monitor, but we can also talk to baby and even check the temperature of the room. While all of these functions have greatly aided in easing our concerns as new parents, Angelcare has taken baby monitors even further by adding a wireless motion monitor able to detect even the slightest of baby’s movements in the crib. We call this a major parenting win.

Building a website can be a complicated process, but for most small business owners, less is more. Just like the last term paper you wrote, your website should focus on the five W’s of your company.
Arguments, misunderstandings, the kids, and overall busyness of life are the makings for a strained marriage if left unchecked. So what do you do if this has been left unchecked for way too long? Tolerate it? Live in it anyway and hope that things will get better just going through the same mundane motions day after day? If you are expecting a different outcome while relying on hope alone, continuing through the motions… let’s face it, you could use a bit of the love spark in your life. How about 30 days of LoveSparkMe?
