The Compound Effect and how it can transform your home-base business.

 compound effect
consistency brings success

When you hear about compound you automatically think of investing and reinvesting of interest. Which in a sense is correct, but we are not talking about finance, today? Our topic will be compounding of daily activities to gain success. We are going to look into the compound effect and how it can transform your home-base business, when done properly.

The Compound Effect

Money, money, money everyone wants it, but only some know how to make it from home. Those that know how to make it use a certain method and that method is the compound effect.  Recently I read a book written by Darren Hardy, The Compound Effect. It is an easy read, but it is my favorite book read so far. This book sits on my coffee table because I reference it when I am feeling impatient with something I am doing.

Darren teaches that taking small seemingly insignificant steps over time, consistently will earn massive results. Research shows the concept works every time. We live in an ever fast paced world, an instant gratification period. Most people don’t have the patience to build up upon on anything. They want it now, whether it is financial, love, family or the job. In a home business doing actionable task consistently over time can catapult your business to huge success.

Leave Bad Habit Habits

It is not easy moving away from the “I want it now” attitude because society has instilled this. These are bad habits that are forged over time. There comes a time when changes are needed in order to accomplish greatness.  Let repeating positive steps become a habit in your life. Science shows that pattern of thoughts and actions repeated many times create what’s called “neuron signature” or “brain grove.” Attention feeds habit. Do the action consistently and it will become a natural part of you.  This how the compound effect works.

Anything is achievable with consistent repetition whether it in business, personal growth, health, wealth or relationship. I personally am growing this blog with consistent content and personal growth that I pass along to you my readers.

Starting A Homebased Baking Business

 Making the Decision

When searching for a home-based business one has to dig deep into their arsenal and come out with different innovative ideas. I did just that and came up with a home-based baking business.

If you are someone that enjoys baking and making tasty treats, then starting a baking business maybe right up your alley. Do a self-evaluation and some research to ensure that you have what it takes to start a home business. It’s not just about baking up some goodies, there are more intricate tasks involved. The business side of a home-based baking business involves basic book keeping, great customer service and marketing. These are the basic fundamentals for a business. Remember this a sustainable business you are aiming at.

Introducing Yourself as a Business Owner

If family and friends are aware of your skills in the kitchen, you can inform them that you are starting a business. Introduce yourself as a business owner. Most times they will support you. Also ask to be referred to their friends and acquaintances. Offer your services for birthday parties, anniversary celebration, weddings and dinner parties; the opportunities are endless.

Another great way to get business is to bake up a batch of your product and take it to any small café, restaurants or pastry shop in your town. Give a little presentation of what you can offer and your price. More than likely, they’ll give you a try. My motto is “nothing try is nothing done”.

A great idea is to let people sample your products. Have a tasting party and invite family, friends and neighbors to try and critique your goods. This is a great way to get your name out there and improve your products. The best advertisement is word of mouth for your home-based bakery business.

The Technical Part of Home-Base Baking Business

While some states and provinces allow you to bake and resell without a permit, several do require one. In the USA it is a 20-C  Food Processor Permit. An inspection is usually carried out at the place of the potential bakery business, if things are up to par, then a permit will be issued. However, if things are not up to the public health inspector’s(Canada)

standard, then the business will not be approved. I am saying this so as to save you a lot of headache and money. A few years ago I open a small gourmet café in Toronto and had the place renovated to suit me. I however, did not call the ministry of public health to do an inspection before I opened. When I did opened they came a month later and did the inspection, to my dismay there a number of minor thing that weren’t in  place and that ended up costing money and time. I could have saved myself all that hassle if I had done my research correctly.

Getting insurance is another necessity for the business. It is always better to be covered than have something happen and you are not.

Final thoughts

Your products should be done to the best of your.  If you take an order, ensure you are able to complete the obligation. It’s better to not take the order, rather than disappoint a customer. ability. Consistency is what’s going to BREAK OR MAKE YOUR BUSINESS.

So, finding a home-based business that one can do is pretty as thinking about your talents and skill and how you could create an income from them.

Wishing you success.

Alexander Wang Rookie Bag
Rookie Bag

The Rookie Bag

My love for handbags goes deep within me. I have had this love affair since I was a child. You could not catch me out without one and it’s been like that ever since. My favorite designers are Betsy Johnson, Alexander Wang, and Saint Laurent.

I have recently been fortunate to acquire the Alexander Wang’s mini Rookie bag and I am ecstatic. It’s compact which makes it versatile for both day and night wear. The Rookie bag and made from pebbled leather and it is black in color, with gold studs at the bottom.  It has an adjustable and detachable strap that I find very convenient. The lining is done in fabric and there is a hidden side zip pocket that is perfect for small accessories.

My Thoughts

When I acquire a designer bag I basically do it as an investment piece. This bag will be with me for years and years to come. I have had bags that I pay $40-$50 and maybe they’ll last me a year before I’ll have to replace them. I purchase a coach bag in 2009 and it is still in excellent condition. Buying quality products save you money in the long run.

Alexander Wang mini Rookie bag is a beautiful, soft and classic bag that can be brought on any occasion. It is definitely a keeper.

Online Business: Fighting Your Way from Poverty

Wanting an Online Business

Reaching your wits end can be a humbling experience, you see the strength that is deep within you. It is not a matter of your well being, but those that depend on you. It is about not disappointing and living up to the responsibilities that you have acquired. When all else fails and your only resort is fighting your way from poverty with your online business you put your all in it.

I am so happy that I have an amazing family that has my back at all times. It is with gratitude that I say thank you for being who you are. My girls are my motivation because they look to me to see how I react in difficult situations, how I align myself to overcome adversities and they learn from that. My husband, Mr. Mac is my strength; his belief in me goes beyond the stars. He thinks I can do anything I set my mind to doing, and because of that is why I am a blogger, today.

Using a Blog to Overcome Being Poor

I am not going to sit here and tell you that blogging is going to ge

poverty online business
working hard at home base business

t you off the poor line immediately, but with the right attitude, killer motivation and a love for your niche, you are on the right path to blogging success. You’ve got to love what you’re doing, if not, then it’s a job. Most times we go to our jobs because we need to, not because we want to.  With a blog, write because you want to, not because you must.

My journey into the blogging world started a few years ago with another blog and I can tell you I am no way near the top of the pyramid. I have a lot of work to do on this blog for absolute success, but I can tell you I am in it for the long haul. Once you’ve tasted what this blogging life is about, there is no going back. Blogging is hard work with great rewards.

Getting out of POVERTY

Fighting your way out of poverty with your online business is the twenty first century mindset. It is the dream of many people to have an online business that would allow them to spend more time with their families and a way to control their income. Once you have a mindset, figure out if a blog is for you. Can you write an article and more articles on the same theme, but different topic? Do you know enough about the topics?

Is an ecommerce site a better option for you? Do you like fashion, food, electronic etc? This would call for savviness in advertising so as to get visitors to the site.

Affiliate marketing is another great way to make money online. It is where you sell other people’s products and they pay you a commission.

If you love writing and can write on various topics with going blank, then this business maybe for you. Many writing sites pay between $20 and $2000 for articles that clients are requesting. For all of these opportunities, they must be treated like a business if you are fighting your way from poverty with an online business.

Purchasing a home in Toronto without drowning in Debt

purchasing a home in Toronto
New Home
  • Decision time

  • I made the decision to purchase a home earlier this year when I notice the unrealistic increase in house price and it doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon. When my husband and I decided to get on the housing ladder we opted for a new home. We wanted to leave the city and be on the outskirt of Toronto.  Our search led us to Whitby, Ontario, where we found a lovely town-house in the mid 400’s. Purchasing a home in Toronto can be a scary feat. We made our choice, signed the papers and we were off. Our house would not be ready until mid November 2016.

Purchasing a new home in Toronto calls for a bit of planning.  Because I know the added expenses that come with buying a home and especially a newly built house can be exuberant.  From new construction cost to upgrades and it can throw your budget over board. This is one of the reasons I chose a new construction, the length of time before closing. With this time period, we are able to save more in to order pay for upgrades that would make our lives more comfortable and hidden closing.

Getting Ready To Purchase

It is great to purchase a home, but you have to plan ahead and have all your ducks covered.  Here is a list of things that need to be accomplished before making what could be the largest purchase you make in your life.

  1. Decide your price point

Have your down payment saved, which includes closing costs.

Save extra for upgrades if purchasing a new home.

Have extra for incidentals ei. Moving cost or new furniture


Purchasing a home   Toronto can wipe out your savings

My advice is not to deplete your savings when purchasing a new home, It is important to have enough savings in case of emergency. Find ways of topping up your savings with a make money online or make-money from  home program.


It is now five months since we purchased the house and four months until we close the deal and topping up our saving is now our priority.

Finding the right money making venture online can be a living nightmare

Making the decision

Well, this blog is all about leaving poorness behind and grasping how to make money online as a way of becoming rich. It may sound like a sales pitch, but it really is possible with thorough research, dedication, consistency and patience, most money making ventures are doable. The problem a lot of people are facing is finding the right money making venture online can be a living nightmare.

Not that there are not thousands of make money online opportunities, but will it work for you. For me, I have been hustling online since my late teen years, but it wasn’t about making a living , it was a fun past-time to see how much you could make. I remember back in 2011 when I was desperately looking for an opportunity to make money online, it was confusing and I was paralyzed with the mass amount of work from home programs. For months I just didn’t know where to start and procrastinated about it. It wasn’t until I became desperate that I narrowed my list down to five that I chose based on reviews and comments from people that were doing them.

Did any money making venture work?

A few did work, but it was all based on the amount of time that was put in and the consistency. The program that generated the most money on a monthly basis for me was EHOW. This was a writing site that one could contribute articles and get paid based on how much people were reading it. Keywords played an important role in the success of the articles. This is to say that finding the right money making venture is possible, after all.

At first, the income was minuscule, even with a lot of work. But after building an audience and sufficient material income started improving on a monthly basis. It is basically the same for most legitimate money making programs. You work and build consistency and an audience or a following. These are the people that are going to let you make money, whether it is selling digital products or article marketing.

So, finding the right money making venture is possible with trial and error. Choose a few ventures and experiment, then eliminate the ones that are not suited for you. Experiment until you are down to last one with the best result, that is your money making program.

Poorness no more
