I like biographies, mysteries and horror stories.
In order for something to change - You have to change something. I don't know who said this originally but ... words to live by for sure imho.

I am the wife of my very best friend and the mother of a beautiful daughter and a wonderful teenage boy. I am also the grandma of a beautiful little girl – Adalynn – totally spoiled and the proud recipient of all the attention I thought I was too busy to give to my own precious children.
Prior to working from home, I worked 3rd shift in a factory for 10+ years. In March, 2005 I hit a deer on my way to work and totaled my vehicle. And we hadn't even made a payment on the darn thing!! I am just so very thankful that no one was hurt. The vehicle was paid for but there was no money for me to get another car to make the daily, 90 mile round trip and I had to quit my factory job.
Well, after blowing my 401k check, I knew I needed a job and I knew I didn't want to go back to working in a factory. After 10 years of working there, we were really not any better off than we had been when I started. The smart think for us was for me to work from home. I had done other home-based businesses in the past -- selling everything from vitamins to vacuum cleaners -- and I knew I didn't want to "sell" anything. I know without a doubt what the answer will be if I were ask my family and friends to "PLEASE have a party for me"! So I looked all over the internet for ways to make money from home.
I knew there had to be a way to work from home using my computer. I looked at several options and signed up to get paid to look at webpages, fill out surveys and read emails. That week, I made $3.66!! Wonderful, huh? I found out that to many of these sites only pay up to a certain amount (less than $5 per week or month) and most of them want you to spend lots of money "upgrading" so you can earn more.
I'd almost given up when I saw an ad by Mike Dillard and I figured what the heck, I'd tried everything else, I should at least take a look. I finally found what I was looking for: a way to work from home and help other people too. I have something I have always wanted, a business of my own that I love and that Works!
