The women on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are by far the richest in the Bravo dynasty. At this point, the only other Housewife who can rival them for net worth is ex-Real Housewife of New York, Bethany Frankel. These ladies are definitely living the dream! I don’t think you’re a dummy! However, from sharpening my pre-algebra math skills to studying up on OCD and new knitting stitches, no format has been easier for me to understand and skim through than the For Dummies series. Brush up on your skills or delve into direct sales as a total newbie with Direct Selling for Dummies before you launch your own business.
Some options for selling Usborne books are home parties (which average only $100 in sales per party) and book fairs at schools (which have some real cash-earning potential). Needless to say, this isn’t exactly a get-rich-quick company and the niche is small-not everyone needs or wants children’s books! But for the right momma with the right circle of friends I think this would be a great company. You could also consider throwing Facebook parties around the holidays for extra sales and homeschool stock-up parties each season.
Carl’s Jr. is continuing to expand their presence in Spokane. The California based fast food chain, via a Boise based franchisee have started work on another new location, this time in front of the former Albertson’s store on Northwest Blvd. in-between Maple & Ash. This is latest phase of re-development for that site as the formerly abandoned grocery store has now been split and recently re-opened as a Planet Fitness gym and a Goodwill store / donation center.
I love reading! But it is not the only thing that I do with my time. I am constantly looking for new ideas and sources of information. Part of this comes from reading a variety of written media (some of which are certainly books like those recommended above). I have spent a significant portion of my career solving a wide variety of problems. Managing risks and problem-solving generally requires entertaining ideas from multiple sources. Reading encompasses an important strategy, but it is not (and should not be) the only alternative.
We did it this way…. every class in our small school was given a theme to create a gift basket. Then each member of the class bought in one item – we set the value at $10 per item but you can choose whatever amount you feel is suitable for your group. We had a chocolate indulgence basket; a body pamper basket, a baby basket, a picnic basket, a car cleaning and accessories basket, a family fun basket, a golf basket, an art and craft basket, a chef’s basket and a make-up basket. There is no limit to what you could come up with.
At first it was hard to stay busy with my new found million dollar idea, so naturally I kept my valet job. My boss was so reluctant to give me my 5 night a week shifts, and I had begged him so much, that I couldn’t ask for less nights now. So I was working full time at night, and trying to get a business, hauling junk off the ground. I was running myself thin, to say the least.
