Do you own your own business? I used to run a photography business before I had my kids. It was great, I loved Pretty much every aspect of it... except the money. I was young, and I had no experience with a living or how to handle the money I made for my business. I was trying to just figure things on my own and I was slowly failing at it.
 Most of my competition had ways to take credit card payments and had a lot of time to focus on their clients. I felt like I was only able to focus on the accounting part. I was losing out on clients because I didn't have enough time in my schedule to take clients and figure out my business finances.

I had no idea what I was doing!

I stumbled across FreshBooks, which is a Small business accounting software. It makes billing so easy!

Some great benefits of FreshBooks are that it makes invoicing completely painless, expense tracking is made so simple and it makes knowing how profitable you are, very easy!

Something else that I love about Freshbooks,  is that they are always evolving for their clients. They just recently came out with the new Double-entry accounting program.

“Double-entry” means there are always two entries for each accounting transaction. One is a credit; the other is a debit. For example, if you buy a new laptop for your business, the double-entry system will track the purchase as a credit for the cost and a debit for the new asset you now own.

It's not complicated at all! FreshBooks has designed the double-entry accounting tools in the same simple, easy-to-use way as all of their original features.
FreshBooks Plus and Premium customers automatically have access to double-entry accounting. 

Although double-entry isn't a fit for every situation, 
Small businesses that are Fast-growing,  sustainable,  and that is primed for growth will benefit the most from this great feature. 

If this sounds like your small business could benefit from, click here to check out all of the details of the new Double-entry accounting features. 

If that isn't enough to convince you, they also give you a 30-day free trial to try it out for yourself!

Finding FreshBooks was a blessing for my business. It helped me bring in a great income. Hopefully, I'll find the time to get back into my photography business again when my kids are a little older. 

I highly suggest you check out FreshBooks for yourself to see how easy and convenient it will be to you and your business!

How I saved hundreds of dollars for Christmas.

Christmas is an expensive time of year for most.  For my family,  we set a strict budget for Christmas and try not to go over.  This year though is the first year I came out under budget!  We set a $900 budget for all Christmas gift purchases. Since I don't work and my husband has had a kind of crappy sales year, we needed to have a strict budget to not overextend ourselves. 
For a few years, I've been using some money making apps to earn a little extra cash for Christmas and birthday gifts. This year it's really paid off!  I was able to use $150 from these apps to put toward Christmas! Using rewards from stores has saved me a good chunk of cash as well!
Want to know exactly how I saved so much money?
Kohls: I love taking advantage of Kohl's because they have great deals,  and they give you kohls cash for purchases you make.  This year I did some shopping at Kohl's and ended up with $55 in Kohl's cash. So I was able to use that toward a few gifts for my extend…

My Favorite Finds of 2018

2018 is coming to a close. I cannot believe how fast this year has gone by.  2018 brought many fun things to my life.  For 2018 I made a goal to get out of my comfort zone,  to be a better parent, and to find more hobbies that interest me.  I did a pretty good job with all of these parts of my life. I started this blog which is really out of my comfort zone.  I've also been able to make a few new friends which are a miracle for me.   I worked on how I talk to my kids.  Apologizing to them more often when I do something wrong,  and making sure I tell them I love them as often as I can.  And as for the new hobbies, I've started a few.  I count my blog as a hobby since it's not really a money maker right now,  and I love writing for it.  
I've found a bunch of things that have improved my life in some way or another and I want to share them with you.  Maybe you might find something new you haven't tried or something that can improve your life in 2019!

How to Find Success in Life

Success is something everyone wants, but we might define it differently. A lot of people associate success with having lots of money or having a fancy job title. 
I think success can be a lot of different things. You can have success in relationships,  or creating that family you always wanted,  maybe it's being a successful athlete,  or getting that master or doctorates degree you have been working so hard to get. I think success can be anything you want that involves you to work hard to get. 
There are some things you can do to help you live the successful life you want. 

1. Have a great emotional intelligence. 
Emotional Intelligence is something that is important to work on regardless of where you are in your life. To have or improve on emotional intelligence, you need to work on understanding both your emotions and other people's emotions.
 When your able to identify how your feeling, you are able to control them better. It will help you to be able to step back and look at…
