Working at home can be a blast! More freedom, more time with your kiddos and all sorts of entertaining. But if you don’t avoid these scams, it can be a night mare!

5 Ways To Avoid WAHJob Scams

  • Asking for your personal information: If any company is asking you for money and your personal banking information. That right there is a red flag. I can’t tell you how many times I fell for this one trick. Some of these people can sound so convincing.
  • Verify the company. One great place I always check is the Better Business Bureau (BBB+). Google them to find out about previous customers and their experiences.
  • Sending you interview via chats: I mean that one right there, really. You can’t schedule a phone interview? Please be aware of this
  • Check their website: If there is no obvious sign of any kind of website or social media profile, I wouldn’t even bother.
  • No contact information: You can’t find a phone number or email (legitimate), there there is another red flag.

3 things I wish I had known before starting my business

Hello mommies! I knew that there was more to me than being a wife, mom, sister friend, etc.  Even before the marriage, the kiddos, college or what have you. I have always known that I was destined to do great things. As a child, I loved baking with my mom and grand mother and quilting and doing crafts! I was that gal that whenever one of my friends, or guy I was dating, had a birthday, I tend to always most definitely baked and decorated them a beautiful cake.  Also, while in high school and college, I was paid $25/report or anything to type it up and graph it so that they wouldn’t have to do it.  I recall one semester, I made over $200 in cash. You talking about happy; as a college student, having that much money at one time was a God sent.

Even, after having my first child, I was in my last semester of graduate school, I always wanted to make money doing something I love. At that time, I just didn’t know how I would go about doing that. As time went by, I began to take my love for crafts and see how I could make money from home. Well, I want to share with you three things I wish I had known before starting my business:

If you are a mom who is ready to start her business, I invite you to check out my Business Startup 101 Course! 

  • Free Stuff won’t take you far: At the beginning, my mindset was why would I pay a coach money when I wasn’t even making money. I would google everything or search youtube to find out everything I wanted to know about business.
  • Build relationships first & foremost: I was the selling queen. With my beautiful diaper cakes, I just knew everybody loved my cakes just as much as I did. I thought hey, why do I have to get to know people or them get to know me to buy my cakes. I was more interested in making money.
  • Hire a Coach: I also was highly against giving coaches my hard earned money when I was already struggling in my business. I was on a tight budget because we were in a one-income household so money was super tight.  My mentality was very poorly; Thank God for change.

I hope that you have enjoyed these few tips and I would love it if you would share this with your other mommy friends. If you are struggling with getting your business up and running, grab my Business Startup 101 Course!
