Wealthy WAHM... How to Be a Profitable Mommy


So you wanna be a WAHM. Well, here are a few tips for you to skip the "building time" and get on the road to profits faster.

Being a mom is tough. That's not new news. However, so many moms decide to take time to make a little business to help out the family and to do something fulfilling and (hopefully) fun.

What they realize could be that although they've got the business and a little time to devote to it, they aren't getting the impact profits they desire.

I write this because after nearly 10 years of working with WAHMs, I've learned a thing or two about their needs. I've also learned what works and doesn't work for most WAHMs who desire to run a profitable home business in direct sales and party plan sales.

I've got several books, ezines, newsletters, online articles, videos, podcasts...you name it....giving marketing help and guidance. After taking some time and polling readers, I've learned what they really need:

LEADS and a way to get to people without compromising themselves. I always say cold-calling basically sucks and most won't do it. If you won't do it, then it surely won't work so alternative means of getting the word out about your particular business are key.

How to do this?

Get yourself in front of those who are 55% or more likely to want YOUR product. I have developed a method to do this and it has worked for numerous WAHMs worldwide. It involved no cold-calling or spending money, advertising, etc. It's simple and uber cheap (can you think free?). To learn more about it, visit http://www.isellmoretoday.com.

For another option, I've written the Wealthy WAHM guide for party plan sellers and it's available on amazon here. It will give you a fun, simple and fast route to marketing, getting leads, developing sales, bringing in recruits and even make you a super stellar service provider.

As a mom who works from home, there are lots of option out there for you to not only get your business developed but make it into a power player for profits for your family. We offer lots of options and free advice, so visit us at http://www.directsalespower.com

Zumba Exhilarate "Rush" Workout Review

Hey there! This review is for the uber popular workout, Zumba. In particular, the Rush version, which is a 20-25 minute workout.

Let me preface this by saying that I am a life-long dance student. I've studied ballet, jazz, modern, ballroom (both latin/rhythm and smooth). I've even dabbled in Jazzercise and various workout dance routines. Sooo, I'm a bit of a dance snob. I basically pooh-poohed Zumba as another hyped up version of Jazzercise (which I really didn't enjoy).

However, I did decide to finally try it out. I got a DVD off ebay and chose the Rush for its short time workout and cheaper price than the longer workouts. I figured if I didn't like it, back on ebay it would go!

I popped it in and was both impressed and disappointed, but mostly impressed. Here's why:

-Generally there is zero warm up, so you should do some warm up before starting. Why workout DVDs don't do proper warm ups is beyond me. Dancers warm up! Therefore, so should even amateur workout dancers.

-I was pouring sweat in this workout, which was great. It was excellent cardio and I appreciated that in a short time.
-Fun! I see why this workout is so popular. It is fun and a bit addictive.

-Music and color-Great music makes you want to dance and move and the colorful sets are waaaay more interesting than most of the boring studio workouts that are out there.

-Instructors-I liked them with the general caveat that one of them (Kass) was very latin-vibed and while it was great to watch her, she made the steps look a little more complicated than the other dancers. I switched to watching them for the same, but easier looking, moves. Loretta was great.

-Zero cool-down-Again, dancers warm down and stretch out their muscles. This is imperative, so I don't understand why even a 60-second cool-down wasn't included. DEFINITELY a must after working out.

All in all, if you're thinking of trying Zumba, this is a great, short, fun workout. Just be sure to add at least 5-15 minutes of warm up and cool down for the safest workout.
