Amy's WAH Reasons (By Guest Blogger Amy)

(Amy is someone on my team that I really admire. She has been working with me for a couple of months, and wrote a guest blog entry. I haven't met Amy in person, but I consider her my friend. This is her guest blog entry about working from home with my team. Read all the way to the end... I've got another trade to offer)

Amy & her kids
I have been working outside of the home since I graduated high school.   I always wanted to be able to work my hours on my time,  but I never knew how I could pull it off.   After having my first child,  I started my quest to find a company that would allow me to be there for my family instead of in an office for eight hours a day.  After six years of searching,  I have finally found that business!   What makes this one different from other businesses I came across? First I had to I learn several things about what I was looking for in a business.  Once I knew those I knew this was the perfect opportunity for me.

1.  You have to LOVE the products or services  offered - wow, what an understatement.   You can't promote a company if there are only one or two things you truly like about their products and/or services.   This is the first business I have come across where I have fallen in love with ALL the products I've used.   My wish list of products to try is a mile long and it's hard to decide what to get next.  Not to mention my husband has fallen in love with the products too.

2.  I hate doing parties! - I personally hate being the center of attention in a crowd, why would I willingly put myself in that sort of situation?  I prefer to talk to people one-on-one.   This business allows me to do my job the way I feel comfortable without having to hold parties.

3.  I don't have room to stock inventory - I live in a small three bedroom house full of toys,  clothes,  and other everyday items.   I don't think I could hold an inventory if I wanted to.  Everything I have from the company is being used and not sitting on a shelf collecting dust.

4.  I despise sales quotas - I've seen companies that require you to meet monthly or quarterly sales quotas.  If you don't make them you're suspended.   Really?   I thought working from home meant you reach for your goals,  not someone else's. 

5.  Your success is directly tied to the amount of training and support you receive from your team - This is big one for me.  It doesn't matter if you work from home or outside the home.  If you've had poor training, it shows in your performance.  I've never seen a better support group than this team I joined.   Everyone is ready and willing to help at any given moment.   It's unbelievable!

I have never felt more connected to a company or a team than I do to this one.   If you're looking to work from home with a company that allows you to be yourself,  offers support day and night,  and has great products you don't need to look any further.  You've found it.   

Plain and simple, Amy rocks. She almost won the blog entry challenge with what she wrote. I'm thrilled that she is a part of my team.

As promised, I have a new trade for my Green Paperclip Project!  So far, we have traded:




A LaLaLoopsy hairbow and necklace, made by my friend Molly. Molly has Molly2Mollie Creations, which is fantastic. This woman is so crafty, it's RIDICULOUS. She makes amazing hair bows and other crafts. She saw my Scentsy bar, and right away offered me the following as a trade:

4" Pillow Featherbed LaLaLoopsy bow clip & Jewel Sparkles necklace
Mollie values this at a mere $10. I disagree, but since she's the creator, I have to go with her MSRP.(I think it's worth a LOT more!!!)  If you want to check out other fabulous items she has, you can check out her Etsy Store and become her fan on FaceBook. Incidentally, Molly just joined my work from home team last month, but is more of a customer right now-- She's really moving & grooving with her bow business (as you can see).

Molly has a very big heart. On Mach 24, she is going to host her very first benefit auction to help a wonderful family achieve their dream of adoption. Even if you aren't interested in trading with me, please check out Molly's different pages and purchase something from the auction. Help a family become whole, and make some dreams come true.

So, the item up for trade is a LaLaLoopsy set: A 4" Pillow Featherbed hair bow on a clip and a Jewel Sparkles necklace, worth (according to Molly) $10. If you want to trade up, I ask that your trade be at least $15. If your trade is worth $20, I will promote your business or cause in my next blog entry! If you would like to trade up, either post in the comments or shoot me a message.


  1. I want to trade!!!! $15 shell pendant and necklace!

  2. Great blog, you info has helped me a lot. I've been trying to earn extra money from home and these are some great tips for picking the right business to go into.

  3. As they say, mothers know best! For working mothers, working far from home means not being able to check the kids from time to time and be present on special events. These things can make moms feel a whiff of guilt. Work at home moms can have the best of both worlds – they can work and be with their little ones at the same time. And the best part is, they can do their jobs in the comforts of their own homes. Adina Mauch
