Branding Yourself!

Alright ladies and gentlemen, if you have or work several direct sales or side hustles remember it is important to brand yourself. If I've learned anything over the years it's that I needed to brand myself and then incorporate that into all my companies.

Below is a podcast I've done on this! Feel free to have a listen.





As many of you already probably know I work several companies. So you will find that if you search the hashtag (#) #trendybizmom. You'll likely find my posts as I have added my brand to all my posts. It unifies things so that when people are searching for me or looking for something I've posted they can search that hashtag or google search and find me.

Now this may not be the thing for you. Personally I've learned that this helps me!

Let's Talk Makeup

So here is one thing I don't under. In all the years I've been wearing Makeup I do NOT understand why the makeup companies feel like they have to degrade us as women. I mean have you ever read some of the names they put on makeup.

Nars Loves to use the word Orgasm. Maybe it's just me and I'm old fashioned but my makeup has never given me an orgasm and usually after such acts my makeup is a mess and frankly not something I was thinking about in the moment.

BareMinerals Eye Shadow named Sex Kitten. Okay first of all I am not 16 or 18 for that matter so I don't consider myself a Kitten. (could be an age thing again). Second of all why would I want to be called a Sex Kitten let alone wear anything with that name. Some people may think it's sexy. Personally I feel like they use the "Sex sells anything" to seriously.

Obessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tart named Hoochie. Come on now. Why would anyone like being called Hoochie. For that matter if someone asked you what you were wearing would you really want to say, I have hoochie on my lips? It's a bit funny could be taken in so many ways.

That's just to name a few there is tons of other ones out there. I don't know maybe you feel sexy when wearing such names on your face and body but personally I feel like a cheap hooker getting ready for the night and it's really not something I want my kids wearing when they get older.

Now onto some makeup that I do enjoy wearing. Thanks to Shine Cosmetics - The new voice makeup I can wear great makeup that I feel good about. They host a wide variety of names to help you feel empowered while you wear their makeup. Here are a few.

Shine BB Cream named Awaken. It's a great light toned BB cream without an obnoxious name.

Shine Lip Gloss named Admired - This is a wear everyday light pink color. And really is something to be admired for.

Shines Eye Shadow named Divine - Long lasting eye shadow in a deeper color that truly is a Divine look on anyone.

I don't know about you but I would rather wear makeup with this name so when people ask what I am wearing I can proudly tell them and not feel like cheap and degraded.

Her makeup is all Shine - Isn't it beautiful!

Working hard for your money!

Take a good look at this quote and it is so true. Yes you can easily dream about how you want your life to be but the real question is. Are you willing to work for it? In order to live your dreams you have to work and you have to work hard, but that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice everything along the way. There is going to be challenges and there is going to be times that you fail but you have to pick yourself up, dust yourself off and keep moving forward.

Anymore to survive you have to have multiple streams of income. Personally my biggest goals is to provide a better life for my kiddo's. So I work hard both away from at home to help me achieve that goal. What my kids will tell you though is I don't give them anything. They have learned that they have to work for it too. Earning an allowance and paying for special things that they want.

I see it all the time in just about every business. You have the ones who are struggling to make it work but keep pushing forward, keep working for those goals. Then you have some who end up quitting right before it gets better. (honestly I've done this.) Then you have the people who put no effort into their dreams and expect things to happen for them. However you do it, keep doing your things. Know that you are worth the struggle. Remember if it were easy it wouldn't be worth doing.

So tell me what are some of your #goals? How do you try to stay focused on your journey? I know I'm going to make it a point starting right now that my team members will be asked Monthly if not weekly, What are your goals?

Reflections

Sometimes we get caught up in life and we often go out chasing what we want or desire. We can get so lost the pursuit of more that we often forget what we have. Sometimes we need to take a step back and look at the things we have already. I know I am guilty of always searching for more.

Recently though I had something happen that made me really sit back and take a long hard look at what I have. I realize now that I do have a pretty good life and I have more than most. I realized I need to appreciate my time with my family and the other people in my life.

This quote says it all. We forget that tomorrow isn't promised. So in your pursuit of more whether it be more money, more friends, a bigger house. Don't forget to take time to be grateful for what you already have. Don't get so lost that you forget to enjoy the precious little moments.

Philo TV - Another Live Streaming Option

So I know many of you prefer options for TV such as Sling, PS VUE, DirecTV, Hulu and YouTube live. But how many of you have heard of Philo Tv? While searching for options tonight to watch my favorite show #livepd I stumbled across this platform.

They offer a 7 day free trial. They do not ask for your credit card but your cell phone number to set you up an account. They later ask you for payment options if you wish to continue service. So let's take a look at the ones we know and Philo TV.

Sling:  Headquarters: Colorado

 25+ Channels for $20
 40+ Channels for $25
 50+ Channels for $40

are their package options and the ability to add extra's for an extra cost. They do offer a  7 day free trial to new members. And you can watch on just about any device. For those of you interested in DVR services


Yes!

Brought to you by Sony PS VUE has several package options with additional purchase options.

Access Package: $39.99 40+ Channels

With options to add extras such as sports and premium channels for an additional charge. Last I saw PS VUE offers a 5 day free trial.

Yes! PlayStation™Vue has a powerful DVR with lots of storage space and no recording conflicts, along with tons of great On Demand shows and movies. Just add your favorite shows to My Shows,* and all upcoming airings of episodes for that show will be automatically saved for up to 28 days after they air. In addition, all On Demand programming for that show will also be available in My Shows. On Demand content added to My Shows will be saved for varying amounts of time. Programming saved to DVR in “My Shows” can be watched in and out of your home network.
You may select any show or channel to have access to all available programming, whether it’s available through DVR, Catch Up, or On-Demand.
Note: Not all shows are available for Catch Up. DVR restrictions apply. Read more about DVR availability for certain channels, viewing locations and markets.

DirecTV Now: Headquarters: El Segundo, CA

Now you can get Directv without the satellite dish! As exciting as that is let's see what they have to offer:

Live a Little: $35 60+ - Channels
Just Right: $50 80+ - Channels
Go Big $60 100+ - Channels
Gotta Have it: $70 120+ - Channels

Now they offer a LOT of channels and packages. For those who like a DVR it's in the works and coming soon! You do have a few options to add some Premium channels for an additional charge. They offer 1 week free for you to try it.  


NEW! TRUE CLOUD DVR BETA

Coming soon! Skip through commercials on a whim and record up to 20 hours — no bulky cable box required.

Hulu live:

Hulu is a great service but has recently added live tv to their offerings. So here is what you can get.

$39.99 a month and you get 50+ live and on demand channels .
They also offer  Hulu without Live TV starting at only $7.99/month & Live TV Only plan for $38.99/month.  Their live TV services is still in Beta testing. They do offer a 1 week free trial. Hulu does however offer DVR services.

Absolutely! Never miss another episode, game or movie. When you subscribe to Hulu with Live TV you get 50 hours of Cloud DVR storage to record your shows and watch them later on any of your supported devices. If that’s not enough for your TV needs, add Enhanced Cloud DVR to increase your video storage to 200 hours. With Enhanced Cloud DVR you can record multiple shows at the same time, fast-forward through any content in your DVR (including commercials!), and stream your recordings anywhere, on any of your supported devices.
 YouTube Live: 

Now YouTube is a  huge giant in entertainment and decided to get in on the Live Streaming service as well. At this time it appears they only offer one package:

$40 for 50+ channels

They do offer the option to add extra's for an additional fee. Looks like you can share your subscription as well. They do offer a free trial as well. For those who need or like DVR it looks like it is included in the price.

You can record as many programs as you want at the same time, without ever running out of storage space. We’ll even keep each recording for 9 months. Stream from your library anywhere in the U.S.

Now while all these are great options and I do urge you to look through because everyone has different needs for their viewing habits. So we go back to the start when I stumbled Across Philo Tv while looking through the others to see who offered A&E so I could watch #livepd. After reading through I decided to try it since it's one of the ones I haven't. Let's see what they have to offer.

Philo TV : Headquarters: San Francisco, CA

 So they offer some cheaper package options. Here is what they have to offer:

37 Channels for $16 
46 Channels for $20

They do offer a 7 day free trial where they do not ask for your Credit Card but they do ask for your cell phone number. Philo is available on Roku, Iphone, Mac, Windows and Android at this time. They do offer a DVR service:


Yes, you can save your favorite shows to watch up to 30 days later.
I will say that since signing up and using Philo I haven't had one issue and the picture has been crystal clear. One thing I did notice about this service that I haven't with the other ones is they offer Philo for education and according to their site it's already used in about 50 universities.

I'm sure the Streaming battles don't end here but I was excited to find a services that offered what I was looking for and it was under $20 a month. Your needs may be different than mine and feel free to comment on your favorite services and why.

I love essential Oils but that doesn't mean my pets do!

So although many of us LOVE our essential oils as a great way to keep the house smelling good but also provide a natural way to help control that which ails us it could have a negative effect on our animals.  There are many oils the are toxic to both cats and dogs. The ASPCA has put out a notice about using essential oils and their affects and snopes as confirmed that it is true that essential oils can have a terrible affect on our animals and can even cause death. So I have found a list of the most  common oils that are toxic to our Cats and Dogs.

For dogs:
  • Clove
  • Garlic
  • Juniper
  • Rosemary
  • Tea Tree
  • Thyme
  • Wintergreen

 For cats
  • Cassia
  • Cinnamon
  • Citrus
  • Clove
  • Eucalyptus
  • Lemon
  • Lavender
  • Peppermint
  • Spruce
  • Tea Tree
  • Thyme
Adverse reactions to oils include squinting, excessive drooling, scratching, increased breathing rate and lethargy.
 The ASPCA recommends that if you are using a diffuser to remove your pet from that room while you are using it  As a person who both promotes essential oils and loves my animals I feel it is my duty to ensure you are informed in these matters.

Snopes Article
ASPCA Article

Here is an attached Image of one person who had issue with Essential Oils. (I Do not know who originally posted this but once I know I'll post credit to them.)


 Please use your essential oils carefully!

What a Flu Season!

WOW this seems like it's been a really tough year for the flu. I'm noticing a lot of stories of people affected by the flu. Recently my youngest came down with some type of virus however not the flu and she was miserable for 7 days. However many in her school have tested positive for the flu and my heart goes out to all those who have been affect.

I know you've heard it several times but Wash your hands, wash your hands, wash your hands. I know it's a pain and sometimes it's hard to remember to stop and wash but it really is important to help stop the spread of virus'.

Here is some tips from the CDC to help prevent getting the flu.

  • Get Vaccinated - Flu vaccination can reduce flu illnesses, doctors’ visits, and missed work and school due to flu, as well as prevent flu-related hospitalizations. (I'm not sure I fully agree with this. I am one of those weird types that when I get the vaccine I end up getting the flu much worse but I am in my 30's. I do agree with this statement for younger children and the elderly)
  • Use Preventative action everyday -Doing things like avoiding sick people. Cover your nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing, washing hands ect. 
  • Take Anti-Viral drugs if your doctor prescribes them. If you can get them within the first 2 days of getting sick you have a higher chance of getting better sooner and possibly avoiding a hospital visit.
For more information you can check out the CDC post here. https://www.cdc.gov/flu/consumer/prevention.htm

As a parent and someone who works in the school system I cannot urge you enough to please DO NOT send your kids to school if they are sick! Please wait at least 24 hours after a fever break to ensure kids are better before returning them to school. I know that it can be hard to take off work and in today's society a lot of business' don't allow for family time like they used to. Consider this though,

1. Are your kids more important than your job. ( I hope your answer is yes, if it isn't I would really sit back and consider your priorities. )

2. If your job won't allow you take off because of your kids are sick are they who you really want to be working for?


So with all that being said, try to stay healthy out there!

The Struggle is real as a parent

Any parent knows it's not easy. It can be challenging on a daily basis, however it does have it's moments of being awesome. To those who don't have kids sometimes I honestly envy you. Don't get me wrong I love my family but days like today challenge who I am and challenges me to do the right thing instead of something much worse.

So this morning my 9 year old couldn't find anything to wear. This is a continued struggle every few weeks. However this morning when she is screaming inches from my face I had a decision to make, I could 1. Act on my instincts and smack her in the face as I would anyone else in my face. 2. Keep calm and let her finish so I could calmly explain to her that I had given her every opportunity to have some of her clothes washed. Yes I am one of those mom's who is teaching my kids responsibility and making them learn what it's like to work for the things you want.

Now she didn't like that answer of course because I'm holding her accountable for what she needed to do yet failed to do. After about 30 more minutes and some crying later she finally decided on an outfit. It was still a tense morning but as the day went on things got better. This evening she did apologize for the way she acted and knew it wasn't the right thing to do. I told her I accepted her apology but I want her to really think of her choices she is making. Everything in life is a choice and how we react has a great deal to do with the outcome.

This morning could have had a much worse outcome and I am proud of how I handled it when I was put to the test.

Let your Kiddo's play on the computer & Keep your files safe!

So I have been seeing it more and more on Social Media Sites, blogs and everywhere else, How to keep kids safe online and protect your computer from their accidents. For the last couple of years now I have been using a product called Magic Desktop.  When I was looking for a way to limit screen time, let them play their games or learn online all without me having to worry what they may get into or have them accidentally destroy my files.

I happened to just stumble upon Magic Desktop through a search and I am so glad that I did. Not only was it affordable but it allowed me a way to setup limits on their screen time, and that they have to do some learning before any of the "fun" games would unlock. I can even setup that they can't access the window's desktop or search the internet outside of when and what I setup. This program is great especially for younger kids and does have a lot of fun interesting things to do.

So if you are looking for a fun, easy and cheap way to keep your computer safe and allow your kids access to the computer I urge you to take a look at Magic Desktop!

Today's Public School System?!?

I'm finding myself getting more and more frustrated with the public school system. Now granted I work for our district as a Nutritional Service Aide, but this as granted me access to really see the inside works of the schools. I've made sure to be active in my children's school because I want to know what's going on in my children's lives.

One of the things I can say is SCREW this Common Core B.S. Bring back common sense. I understand that it can be important for some students to know where the numbers come from and how to turn a multiplication into an addition problem for easier solving. However it takes twice the amount of time to get the same answer. I know it's not only me who is frustrated a lot of the teacher's at my children's schools are frustrated as well. They see the kids struggling to understand but all they get told is keep pushing, hurry get through this lesson. It really is making me think that maybe I need to go back to homeschooling my kiddo's.

This is more of a Rant than anything but why can't we just get back to common sense. I could be wrong for thinking this and some people may disagree with me and that's okay. So here is my big questions and any teachers or anyone else who wishes to comment I would look forward to the input.

1. Whats the point really?
2. Do you find it more beneficial for the kiddo's or do you see them struggle more?
3. Why the rush to push the kid's through the school?

IS there any advice out there for or from parents who are have or going through the same thing?

Barefut Essential Oils

I just have to share with you the wonderful essential oils from barefrut. Not only are they affordable but they are always adding great New products. So I joined with them after reading tons of reviews about their products. In the picture you can see my first purchase. I received all of those products plus one (not shown) for about $20 with their amazing deals. 



I must say it was pretty fast shipping as well. About a week if that. It really was like Christmas all over again. I love love love the ready balms!!! I used the peppermint for a headache I had and it did seem to work. Last night my youngest was having trouble calming down and going to sleep. So I let her smell some of the calming I had applied to my wrist and she honestly started to calm down. So then I went and got the sleeping balm and applied a small amount to get wrist, she was asleep within 30 minutes. It was amazing!

I highly recommend this company and their products! Keep an eye out for their amazing deals as well. Follow the link to check them out!!
