Brag Alert!

Brag Alert! Brag Alert! Brag Alert! Brag Alert! Brag Alert. Brag Alert!
*******************************************************************************

My life isn't usually that exciting. Not in a bad way. In a good way. Friday was like any other day. I babysat for my someone in my babysitting co-op. I took the kids to WALL-E. We then came home and then I checked my Google account to read my comments on my blog.

I love any and all comments. I get excited whenever I receive one. But on Friday, one completely shocked me. I was surprised to read that Tory Johnson stopped by and left a comment. I mentioned her in my post about a part-time job. Do you know Tory Johnson? She is the founder and CEO of Women For Hire and is on Good Morning America often. I am a huge fan of Good Morning America (love Diane and Robin). Anyway, as I checked my Google I was shocked to see a comment from Tory Johnson. I could barely read it I was so excited.

This is what she wrote:

Indy...what a fun blog you're writing. Think of small steps to reach a big goal. It's easy to come up with all the reasons why you can't or shouldn't do anything -- and they're valid reasons. But where there's a will there's a way. If you really want to make money at home, you can find the time to reach that goal. Is it easy? Of course not. But it's definitely doable. Maybe you set aside 30 minutes a day to select, photograph and post things on eBay. (All the money won't go to taxes, nor will it go to a sitter!) Or think of a skill you'd love to use again while working from home. You don't have to earn thousands of dollars overnight to make it worthwhile. Start where it's comfortable and build from there. I'm rooting for your success.

A huge thank you to Tory for stopping by my blog. And just a side note to Tory, I am doing just as you suggested. I am selling items on EBay and have my used books up on Amazon.com. I am taking small steps to make financial changes for our family. One example is my use of a babysitting co-op instead of a paid babysitter. We trade hours instead of money. Thank you for all of your words of encouragement. I will continue to watch you on GMA and read your magazine. Wow! Thank you so much for stopping by. You made my day and week.

Wow!
