Tell us a bit about yourself, your family and your business.

As a busy work at home mom of two little ones (ages 12 and 9), I know how crazy life can get – and with seventeen years of corporate America under my belt I also know how important it is to keep all the aspects of our life in balance. That’s my goal for you – to live a healthy, full and happy life!!! I work with other busy professional working moms to help them balance their health (all aspects of health), their career, their families and their lives. I want them to enjoy and LIVE each day, not just try to “get through it.”

What inspired you to work from home?

I want to be the one to make my kids breakfast, take them to school, be there after school and not have to stress if they are sick, have a field trip, etc.

Why did you choose the company/method(s)/business, etc… that you use?

I am passionate about health and nutrition and I strongly believe that we should all be enjoying life every day – not just on vacations or other “special” times – after all, we only live once, so why not enjoy the journey. As for why I work with Young Living – the oils feed right into my passion for healthy living and there are so many amazing uses for them – I have oils in every room in my house and use multiple ones each and every day!

What do you feel makes or helps you be successful?

My passion for what I do and my desire to see other moms happy and healthy.

What do you struggle with?

Wanting to do it all!

What 5 tips would you offer someone contemplating your business adventure(s)?

  • Make sure you love what you are doing.
  • Never stop learning – educate yourself and experiment.
  • Be realistic about how much time you have to invest.
  •  Enjoy the process – live what you teach.
  • Be willing to change things up when needed – be flexible.

What 3 books/websites/bloggers have you found to be the most helpful with being a WAHM and making ends meet?

Please share a breakdown of your work week or day.

Every day is a little bit different depending upon what I have going on – what projects, how many one on one clients and what the kid’s schedule is like.
Since I have a full time professional job, I spend most of my work hours handling that.
I fit in my coaching and blogging either early in the morning, during lunch time, or while the kids are at their sports practices – it’s amazing how much work I can accomplish during a hour and a half swim or soccer practice!
When I work with clients, I fit it into their schedule and then might work a little extra in the evening after the kids have gone to bed to “make up” that time.
I very rarely work on the weekends – that is sacred family time.

Share any additional tips or info you feel would inspire others. This can include ways you save, plan, products you use, quotes, memes and more.

The most important thing I can share is to remember your values – don’t get so caught up in making money that you forget the reason you are doing this – for me it’s to spend quality time with my kids while they are young and to have a flexible schedule doing things I enjoy – I don’t want to be “working now to have fun tomorrow.” I want to enjoy today!

25 Ways We Supplemented Our Income in 2016

25 Ways We Supplemented Our Income in 2016

25 Ways We Supplemented Our Income in 2016 and You Can too!

After reviewing our 2016 financial challenges and our 2017 goals, I realized that the only way we came out ahead in 2016 was by saving every way we could and supplementing our income by earning extra money, points and gift cards on the side.  These projects totaled over $3,000 total and inspired me to share a comprehensive list of how we supplemented our income in 2016 and maybe encourage you to supplement your income in 2017.

Our 5 Big Goals For 2017- We are planning to make it amazing!!!

Our 5 Big Goals for 2017 and How We Plan To make it AMAZING!!!

Yep, folks we made it!

It is officially 2017, and I cannot wait to share the amazing things we have planned for 2017!!!

I have heard so many people say they couldn’t be happier that 2016 is over, and I can’t say I am not one of them.  2016 was full of ups and downs for those of us at Treasured Tidbits, not only financially but physically and emotionally as well.  But… we persevered and we are ready to CRUSH 2017 in both our businesses and personal life.

I have been looking forward to today for months. 

Today is the first day of a New Year, new chances and new business adventures.  Business adventures we have been planning, cultivating and diligently building for months.  I can’t wait to share them with you, but before we begin a 2017 overload, I want to share our main goals for 2017.  Notice, I don’t call them resolutions because to me resolutions are easily broken, but goals are something to be attained, something to aim for and can be put aside in a time of trouble to be restarted when that trial passes.  Our top five goals for 2017 are:

When Your Savings Goals Hit a Roadblock & Leave You on Empty

When Your Savings Goals Hit a Roadblock & Leave You On Empty

Our 2016 Savings Goals Update

2016 has certainly been another year full of ups and downs, twists and turns, both in our home and businesses, but I am excited to say we survived!

For the first time ever, I decided to set some goals (not resolutions) for 2016, and I even left my comfort zone and shared them with you here.

I must confess that we fell short on many of those goals, especially our savings goals,  but I have yet to beat myself up for it because they are GOALS not requirements, not deadlines and not commitments.  Sometimes GOALS have to change or undergo some alterations due to physical, financial or emotional challenges, as Benjamin Mays says, “The tragedy of life doesn’t lie in not reaching your goal.  The tragedy lies in having NO goals to reach.”

Tragedy of life does not lie in not reaching your goals. The tragedy lies in having no goals to reach. Benjamin Mays

Heaven knows our goals have made some enormous U-turns in the past year.  The biggest and most obvious being the original goal of saving $5,000-$10,000 by the end of 2016.

It’s been another crazy week here at Treasured Tidbits.   I still haven’t regained proper use of my hips, back and legs BUT I have been able to keep up with our 30 Day Organizing Challenge and work towards putting together our anticipated 2017 blog year!!!   Not being able to walk doesn’t mean I can’t tackle the digital work that needs done.    How do handle being down and out in your life?  Do you just lay around and pout about your issues or find something productive to do until you are healed?   I will admit I had times I couldn’t focus past the physical pain BUT I tried my best to overcome those moments and keep planning, typing, pinning and more.It helped to have a GOAL.   A goal to finish the organizing challenge series AND to have an AMAZING 2017 blog year.

How One Little Planner Has Changed My Life & Businesses

Do you feel out of control? I know I used to. This one litte planner changed by life and my businesses.

IF you know much about me, or follow this blog, you know I hate to spend money on ANYTHING.  I coupon, blog, take surveys, use apps and even borrow tools and things, so that I don’t have to spend my hubby’s hard-earned money.  I also like to be super organized and on top of things, but with our hectic life it was a constant struggle day in and day out, no matter what I tried. But once I began using this amazing little planner I began feeling empowered, organized, put together and on top of things, even though, in reality, my life is even busier than it was before.
