Earn what you deserve and more

If you read Curly & Candid or you are fortunate enough to know me personally (!) then you know that I tell it how it is.

If I believe in a brand or product (or whatever) I will happily plug and promote it, if I don’t, if there is a sliver of doubt, then forget it. I won’t put my name to it.

Many of you read my previous post about the fantastic Earn What You Deserve As A Mumpreneur course that the lovely @HelenLindop produced (See BusinessPlusBaby). I am an affiliate for the course which means that when anyone buys it via me, I get some commission. There you go, all out in the open.

What often isn’t out in the open is just how many people struggle to make their business earn what they need it to or get a return back on the hours and hours they put into it. This course shows you how to earn, literally, what you deserve to.

This has been an popular course, I have used it myself and have made very positive changes which have resulted in a significant impact of my income. Usually £37, for this week only 20th – 30th Sept, you can get it for £24.

Summer Working, Balance and Guilt

I blog. This much is obvious, but I also work on a freelance basis. I do some market research work, I ghost write for businesses and blogs, and do other paid writing work. Hooray, I’m getting there… but what the bloody hell will I do over summer?

We have lots of outings planned during the summer, to air shows, to visit friends and a short holiday away – but the rest of the time it’ll be playing at home / in the garden (weather permitting) and short day trips. School finishes today and I am yet to work out just how I’m going to get the work done and spend quality time with the boys. Up until now, Kieran has been at school every day and Taylor (possibly the most laid back baby ever) has been easy to work around. My (fabulous) Mum takes Taylor one day a week so I can have a proper “heads down” day and over the summer Kieran will go to a playscheme one day a week while Taylor is visiting with Grandma so that’s one day…. urm?!

Do you have any Summer-holiday working tips? I am looking forward to having them both at home and having fun but DO need to work (pesky bills and all that) so how can I get the balance right between the two without subjecting them to a summer of seeing the top of Mummy’s head over a laptop screen?

What do you do, how do you organise you time? Is it possible to have it all, the fun and the “proper” work-time?
