Knowledge is Power!

The most successful people in life are the ones with the best information. People with power are people who know how to get things done.

Knowing how to do something is sometimes virtually the same as having done it.

Knowledge will come to you when your eyes and mind are always open. There is no knowledge that is not power. Power is the product of understanding.

You'll build the power to accomplish your goals by educating yourself. This power comes from knowing how to do something.

In the land of the blind, the one eyed man is king.

Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become your character. 
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

How to Live Before You Die~ Steve Jobs

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most importantly, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary." - Steve Jobs

R.I.P. Steve Jobs, thank you for being a true inspiration, visionary, leader and Genius! You will be missed!

Great message From Steve Jobs!

Don't let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might as well put that passing time to the best possible use.

The Benefits of Being A WAHM

It's not hard to point out the benefits of being a WAHM because there are multiple reasons that often outweigh the negatives. The joy is being there 24/7 for your family, but mainly for your children.

Remember all the times your kid called from school because they forgot their lunch, stepped in a muddy puddle and needed a new pair of socks and shoes, or forgot their math book at home? It was always Mom to the rescue.

Being a WAHM also allows you to spend quality time with younger kids and help older kids with their homework, volunteer at the school, attend field trips, etc. Working outside the home can be totally exhausting and coming home to cook, clean, and then find time to spend with your family can be daunting. On top of that, you also need downtime and to prepare for the next day.

The other benefits of being a WAHM are not solely focused on the family. Think of the price of gas, car maintenance or transit fare, work clothes and all the things associated with working out of the home. $5-$10 lunches or $5 Starbuck coffees daily can be huge money guzzlers, and don't forget those lunch-time strolls to the mall. You can easily save over $200 per month working at home!

Working at home allows you to be your own boss, working at your own pace and working on a schedule suitable to the needs of your family. If you're sick, your co-workers aren't taking the extra work and if your child is sick at least you're home to comfort them. You can take care of any emergency that arises, and you have the ability to leave at any time without having to explain yourself to your superior.

Many are choosing to be a WAHM for the benefits stated above, and many are finding it's financially more affordable for the Mom to stay home due to the rising costs of daycare. These are great reasons you should become a WAHM, because a happy family is a healthy family.

To your success,
