It is a fascinating world nowadays – one of opportunity, innovation and initiative. The internet has made it possible for people not only to access information and communicate but also to find opportunities and work places where none have thought to exist. Is it really possible to make money online? Contrary to what many people think, it isn’t as easy as creating a website and then the money flows in. It is a matter of dedication and it depends only on your commitment. To begin, start looking into and trying different approaches; here are some basic ones you can try.
Hello everyone! As many of you know I'm a product review blogger on my other blog. A lot of bloggers, especially mom bloggers connect with PR companies and businesses to help review their products and get the word out through social media, email, word of mouth, etc.
I really enjoy being a Brand Influencer because I get to learn about the latest new products that companies are trying to promote.
Some companies will pay you for sponsor post but when it comes to product reviews, the product is usually your compensation.
Doing product reviews and sponsored post can lead to great opportunities like, getting invited to conferences, working for big brand companies, and start making a good income from it.
If you head over to ProductReviewMom.com, I've listed companies that offer product reviews and sponsored post for bloggers. Click here.

Hey everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend!
I just received an email from Pinecone Research saying they're looking for new members to join their panel. Pinecone is the top leading survey panel that's invite only. I really like their survey panel and get quite a bit of products to test with them. They also pay the very next day after you complete a survey through PayPal.
As of right now Pinecone is in need of new members ages 18-24. If you're not between those ages, please forward this post to someone who is. Pinecone is always free to join and never a commitment.

For some, tax season is the best first part of the year because of tax refunds but for people that are self employed like myself, this time of the year makes us cringe!
Since I made quite a bit last year, I'm nervous about how much I'll be owing the IRS as well as State taxes. The good thing though is that with my full time job I had extra money paid to taxes to offset my tax bill this year.
Remember, even if you've earned less than $400 working from home last year you must report all earned income and that includes gift cards and Pay Pal payments. I'm also hearing that if you've received free products from companies to review on your blog, you must claim taxes on that too. I, myself have to start scrambling around and find out all the free products I got from companies and start adding up the FMV (Fair Market Value) of these products. ARGH!
Also if you've earned $600 or more with any company they must send you a 1099 form so you can file your taxes, but you can still file without them.
Don't play around when it comes to taxes! I remember back in 2009, I didn't claim all of my work from home income and a year later I was hit with a big tax bill from the IRS and a few years later a tax bill from my state.
Remember to keep all your receipts to help filing taxes be much easier. Hire a professional accountant to help you do your taxes.

While I was on Twitter reading through tweets from others, I came across Matt Cutts (Head of Google Search Spam) tweet about the Decay and Falling of Guest Blogging. I immediately clicked on his link since my blog does offer guest posting from other bloggers.
Basically guest blogging has been becoming out of hand and people are really abusing it just to build links and page rank to their spammy website.
In Matt Cutts's blog he says, "So stick a fork in it: guest blogging is done; it’s just gotten too spammy. In general I wouldn’t recommend accepting a guest blog post unless you are willing to vouch for someone personally or know them well. Likewise, I wouldn’t recommend relying on guest posting, guest blogging sites, or guest blogging SEO as a linkbuilding strategy."
Hey everyone! Meet Michal Stawicki, a full time working married father of three that also works from home. He'd like to share with you guys about finding the time in your busy schedule to be successful.
Are you looking to earn more money, free up time and follow your life’s true purpose? Become a bus driver. Really? Am I suggesting that you get your commercial driver’s license, saddle up behind the wheel and schlep people around town? Well, not really. The bus I’m referring to is your personal bus - your life. Take a moment and ask yourself “Am I in charge of this vehicle, or do I let the road of life dictate my route?” If you are like most people, if you are like I was, you have a vision for your life that isn’t reflected in how you currently live. You have dreams and goals, but too often “life just gets in the way.” But, I am here to tell you that this doesn’t need to be the case. Really! I believe that everyone has the tools to build their dream life now, despite their past, their busy life and the ‘roadblocks’ that are all too common along this journey.
