This is a January in Review Post, because I can’t actually call it an Income Report. This has this been the hardest month ever to get through! The actionable steps I need to follow through on my goals need to be created, because there has to be an easier way to get off to a better start!
I don’t know about you, but I like to start the New Year with a list of Goals that I want to accomplish during the upcoming year. I don’t call them Resolutions because those ALWAYS fail. But I find that as soon as I set my mind on those goals I am faced with HUGE roadblocks almost immediately!
Set a goal…No Matter What!
Obstacles WILL Show up!
Fight them off With Positive Reinforcements.
They are part of the Adventure!
I got this fabulous quote from watching videos on the Female Entrepreneur Association Website. I absolutely love listening to what Carrie Green has to say! I actually found her by accident with a random book title search on my library’s website and feel in love with her message. Anyway, moving forward.
Remember this list?
- Amazon Arbitrage (sale of found items from other retailers)
- NoTouchy Diaper Rash Spray
- Merch by Amazon
(I hope to get approved for this one!)I did not get approved for this, it seems I have to have already designed and sold t-shirts on my own before they will let me do it with them!
- E-Book authorship
- Stock Photo Sales
- Uber Driving- almost have all the steps done, but am rethinking what availability I would have
- Grow My Hubby’s Cleaning Service
- Grow this blog!!
Well I now have a few more points to add to this list!

Holy Cow, Friends!
I can’t believe it’s already January 2nd! Where does the time go?
I have been working on a Christmas post, saving it as I went and BAM! it passed me by! So, the only thing to do is scrap it and move on.
I’ve got one.

Hey there, Momma’s!
I wanted to boast a little about a product that I designed and have been testing! It’s none other than the No Touchy! Diaper Rash Spray.
I am sure that many of you have been tortured when your littles’ get a bad bout of diaper rash and your forced to rub thick, white globs of poisonous petroleum based products! Then try not to cry when you have inevitably caused your baby more pain because of touching and pulling their delicate skin!
Let me tell you a little story. My second son had an allergy to milk based formula, which of course we didn’t know right away! So, his rashes were awful! And to top things off his rashes became worse when we used anything with high levels of zinc! He would see me coming with the tins and tubes of white glop and he would cry and repeat over and over “No Touchy, No Touchy, Mama, peeeese, no touchy.” What’s a Mom to do then? I get teary eyed just remembering his little voice!
Fast forward a few years, and I had an epiphany! I just wish it had come to me sooner! I could make a product and know for certain that it was the best option possible because I would use only plant-based organic products!
I found a great company in Oregon, but after a year I couldn’t use them anymore, as they couldn’t ship across the border! Then I found a great company based out of Toronto…perfect! So, after tinkering with the ingredients I felt confident enough to try it out on my third baby that had just been born. Eureka! Not only did it work, it worked overnight with one application! The more ferocious the rash the longer it did take, but there were no tears, no tantrums, no begging! Even now, as my youngest is 5 and learning to take care of his bathroom needs, there are inevitably a few “misses” and a rash ensues. Spray on this product and bam! by morning it’s gone!
I felt so strongly that I was on to something that I took a correspondence course in aromatherapy to learn more about essential oils! It was fabulous!
It’s Not Only for Diapers!
I have used this to help a child (and myself many times!!) heal burns to the hands from cooking. Heat rashes in the underarms, skin rubbing on thighs and even after a little bit too much exuberance with not enough lubricant (wink-wink)! This heals them all!!
Yes, I am tooting my own horn! Sure. Why not?
I have had friends buy this from me, and have experienced the same benefits! So, why not head over to Amazon and buy one for yourself! Try it out and leave me a review!
As I promised, I would update you often on the “Work from home Options” options that are available. Granted it is still summer around here and the schedule is CRAZY! I do hope that with the kids going back to school in two weeks that I can settle into a better schedule of research and implementation!
I have started with Toluna.ca (For Canadians.) There is a .com for Americans. It is a survey site that earns you points for every survey that you complete, either fully or cancelled by the system based on the demographic questions you’ve answered at the beginning of each survey.
It is a bit tedious, so far, to be honest. I think I may have gone through 10 to 15 surveys already and most run about 20 to 30 minutes. While you can earn 1200 to 2000 points for that time frame, or alternatively 200 points if they don’t “need” you to finish the whole thing, it does take a lot of points to redeem for gift cards. It is a bit time consuming for a work online experience, that seems to give moderate return for the time investment. However, as this post says this is the first one under my belt!
It takes 30,000 points to get a $10 gift card, $75,000 points to get a $25 gift card. There are many different retailers, restaurants and services that are available in gift card format, like Starbucks and Itunes. But there is also another option that is not right up at the top: The Paypal gift card. At 60,000 points for $20 increment redemption it is possible to get cash outs.
There are also entries earned for every survey completed to earn large totals of points. While clicking around I found a tab for Test Products, while there are no products available currently, it is an option with this company that you can be sent products that you test and review(and get to keep) So, as I achieve more with this site I will add updates to this post.
If you have been working with Toluna, leave comments below on your experiences with them!
Thanks a bunch!
**IMPORTANT NOTE: I am not earning anything from this post, nor any click throughs to Toluna that you may do. It is entirely all my opinion and am not receiving any compensation.
In our never-ending world of Pinterest Posts showing off Blogging Income Reports where people are making well over $80,000 a month, surely I can figure out how to make $1000!
I will spend my time reading the “How I did it” blog posts and all the “How you can too” posts. I’ll try to keep detailed notes on all the steps and how they worked. (or how they failed!) So far, I’ve encountered many posts about “How to start a money-making blog in 5 easy steps!” Now let me tell you something…5 steps may SEEM easy, but for a beginner navigating the world of WordPress is riddled with many step-by-step guides and YouTube videos. Yet, you can STILL easily SCREW IT ALL UP!
Choosing a Theme isn’t as simple as you think! WordPress gives you an image and you are supposed to know exactly how your blog is going to look using that image…um…NO! Then you spend hours trying to figure out how to make everything “fit” only to find out that it doesn’t have the options you wanted in the first place. Or the page looks like a glossy magazine layout instead of a friendly blog page.
Don’t get me started (not yet anyway) on linking to Amazon! I couldn’t even tell you what happened to me there, yet. I haven’t figured out how I messed up that one…but monetizing with Amazon is hard.
It all seems too good to be true! However, someone really is making money somewhere…I just wonder if the money they are making isn’t actually from their “blog” but from the posts and ebooks that teach you “how” they did it! Do you see the difference?
So, I will start with this pre-fortune post and keep adding more as I Learn and Earn! If I am lucky enough to have income reports I will add them as well! I can be hopeful, right?
