Hi Everyone,

I have not been here for a while now, yet I have been keeping myself really busy;

  • Ø  I have been doing a lot of studying and research into being a Virtual Assistant, especially in Bookkeeping.
  • Ø  I have also have been studying to be part of the Travel Industry.  Which is another career that I would love to get into as well. I wish to travel more before I am too handicaped or die, whichever comes first.
  • Ø  I also have had a lot of hospital visits, and I broke my right arm on February 20th this year, now that was a totally disabilitating experience…and hurt like @#$%%&!!
  • Ø  Now I am building a new Website that will be my main site for information about me business wise.
  • Ø  I am also updating all my other sites about me as well, such as Facebook 

All of this is a lot of work, especially the Website.  I am doing it with Joomla slowly but surely.  I have to learn it as well as apply it.  Therefore, I would say go check it out often and tell me what you think of it, please.

Now back to my book, wow, I have been making sales and did not even know it until I checked Amazon.  I was getting little amounts in my bank account, and it was described as Amazon. I also have an Amazon store (, so I checked that out first, and that was not it.  Then I checked out my Book, and voila that was it. I have found it on more than one site (I put them in tinyurl since the sites are so long) that has my book in Amazon as follows;

                This is my Book Cover; 

I do not know if I’ll have the time to do the other books that I wanted to follow up with this one.  I really wish to start-up my Virtual Assistant Business soon, and will probably be doing some translations from English to French Freelancing for another company.  The jobs are there, you just have to look for them. 

***A little info about my Health, I am doing better now, my Cancer is still Stable.  The side effects of the medications I am taking is what bothers me the most.***

I can give you the site for the freelance translating jobs here at;

If languages are your thing, then Good Luck in passing the test.

Anyways, Take Care All….and Please give me feedback about my Website.

Bye For Now,


Live each Day as if it was your last. J

They are a very good way to STOP SMOKING!!  I've tried an E-Cigarette for over a month, and it worked really well, until I decided to smoke a cigarette or two if I got a really bad craving.
Then we (my Husband and I) got a real shock when he lost his job that he was working at for almost 8yrs.  And now, at 53 he has to start to look for another job, which is not easy these days.  Jobs are available, yet you can apply to all those of interest, but you never know which one/ones will call back.


I've tried patches and gum before, and it really didn't work out well. The E-Cigarette is the best way to go, since you can smoke the vapor, it tastes good (a lot better than a cigarette) and you get your Nicotine shot.  Still you have to be motivated, no matter what way you choose to Quit Smoking!!


I Love the E-Cigarette, and the best place to buy from is not online, yet trying to find a place clos to your home to be able to try the savors you would like for your E-Cigarette.  Also there are many types of E-Cigarettes as well, so it also offers you the chance to try different ones.
There are some of them that are online if you prefer, here is a small list of them;

Healing through hands and feet

Reflexology, often called zone therapy is a science that believes there are reflex points in the hands and feet that correspond to the organs and systems of the body. Reflexology is considered an alternative, complementary, or integrated medicine method of treatment and involves the physical act of applying pressure to the feet and hand with specific thumb, finger and hand techniques without the use of lubricant. It is not used to replace proper medical treatment, but in conjunction with it or as stress relief. Foot reflexology is much more commonplace than hand although the latter is gaining more popularity.

Reflexologist say that the body is divided into ten equal longitudinal (vertical) zones, five on the right and five on the left. There are also three transverse lines, the upper region of the shoulder girdle, the waistline, and the pelvic floor. The belief in reflexology is that each organ or part of the body is represented on the hands and feet and that massaging the specific areas on the hands or feet can have therapeutic effects in other parts of the body. This works because pressure on the represented zone will stimulate the flow of energy, blood, nutrients, and nerve impulses to the corresponding body part and thereby relieve stress or ailments in the corresponding body part. Reflexologists claim that foot reflexology can cleanse the body of toxins, increase circulation, assist in weight loss, and improve the health of organs throughout the body. It is said to remove blockages to allow ‘qi’ or life-force into the organs, and improve energy flow.

Reflexology can be performed by a trained reflexologist or can be done by one at home using a reflexology chart, as seen in the images as a guide. The chart maps out the various zones that correspond to the body parts. To do it yourself -
Step 1) Familiarize yourself with the various zones and points as per the charts. The left hand or foot reflects the left side of the body, and the right hand or foot reflects the right side of the body.
Step 2) To warm up, apply pressure to the insides of the feet and hands to activate the spine reflexes and pressure to the outsides to activate arm and shoulder reflexes.
Step 3) Move on to the head and neck. The fingers and toes correspond to these and stimulate the brain, eyes, ears and sinuses.
Step 4) Massage the balls of the feet to activate the chest, upper back, heart and lungs reflexes.
Step 5) Focus on any other areas you think require attention. You might find lumps, hardened skin such as calluses, in any trouble spots that may call for more pressure, or more frequent practise.
There are also now many reflexology products available on the market from special footwear with raised nodules that massage the reflex points of the foot, enhancing blood circulation. There are also reflexology gloves and socks that will indicate zones for you.
Reflexology comes under a bit of controversy and is criticised as a working science as there seems to be a lack of licensing and accreditation. Although there are testaments to relief from reflexology there is also a absence of research and empirical evidence.

I found this article really interesting, since I didn't know that the hands could be used in the same way as the feet.  I hope you found this as interesting as I did.

Hi Everyone,

I’m sorry I haven’t been here often, yet I’ve been working hard on my Work from Home books. It’s almost done, I keep on finding more and more Jobs, yet I’m practically done putting them in my book now.  The picture on the left is my Book Cover.  I think I have another 30 or so companies to enter, then comes the proofreading and editing, but I’ve been doing some of it at the same time.  All the companies and Jobs that are in my book are all verified, and the book will be coming out soon, since there are some jobs that are starting soon.  A lot of jobs come out the end of summer and the beginning of fall.
I will be giving out more information as to when the book will be available on Amazon.
Have a Great Day All!!  :)

I have three wonderful children who are now 14, 18 and 21.  Two of the three have learning difficulties, so I tried to be available for them the best way possible.  That’s when I started working at Home.  Before I started Working from Home, I did like everyone else, found the regular 9 to 5 job and sent the kids to Daycare.  This was before they started to go to School. I’ve been working at Home for approximately 14 years now.
I have an Accounting and clerical background, and do my family’s Income Taxes every year, therefore; I started doing Income Taxes for another company from Home. This worked out for the first Season in 1999-2000.  The next season I did them on my own, seeing it wasn’t really working out with the particular company I was involved with; and I had moved.  I also offered other services such as; translations (from French to English), Resumes, School Projects, etc… This also worked out for one season.

Then I moved to a small town for approximately 4 yrs, the first years there I took a break, internet was really slow, and so I did a lot of researching.  Then for the next three years I opened a company with a friend and we worked together at her house.  The company we formed again was in Accounting and Income Taxes to start out with.  She had one client that demanded the full services of Accounting, and slowly we built it up to 5 more clients, plus a 100 or so Income Taxes every year.  With this company I was the detail oriented and Tech-Savvy part of the partnership, and she was the Sales person and Administration side of it.  This worked out for 3 years, until we both changed lives and moved to the bigger city again.  I continued to do the Accounting for two companies, and some Income Taxes, until I found a full time job in 2008. 

During the time I did the Accounting work from Home; I also found legitimate work at Home jobs as well.  I worked for a company named SOM Research and Surveys; (This is a Job offered in Quebec, Canada) .  They offered everything you needed to start up, this included the computer and the headset needed.  Their special program is in their computer, and if a problem arises they could fix it easily by getting in your system.  This was mainly outbound calls, yet the full text was there every time you called, it was really simple. The reason it didn’t work out eventually is that it was always in the evenings, and I preferred inbound calls as to outbound.

Also I found something better at Network Omni;  (This is a US company that hires Worldwide) I was doing live translations (French to English and English to French) over the phone for $30hr, yet this is according to the time spent on the phone.  It was really interesting work, a lot of inbound calls from many well known companies.

The reason I opted out of this one is that there were not enough calls coming in for about a month.  They’re jobs that I did were part-time while I was doing my Accounting job from Home from 2000-2007. 

From 2007 to 2008 I worked for two different agencies to replace employees at a Bank.  This was a good job to be available for the kids since the shifts were mostly from 10AM to 4PM max, and one day from 10AM to 8PM.  I loved working there but yet again didn’t get many hours, and was offered a really good job at a prestigious job downtown Montreal, which offered great benefits.  So I jumped back in to the Rat Race Again….for a year and a half.
Then in 2010 I was diagnosed with Cancer (Multiple Myeloma), which will be my next book.  I had no choice but to find something to do at home, I did a lot of research and even before this and got SCAMED a lot with; Survey jobs online, Affiliate jobs, Free Websites, a lot of Free EBooks…only to have my email overload with SCAMS again. Therefore; I had a passion to do my own Nails, took a Course and bought all my equipment mostly from EBay, put up my own Website, got into the Yellow Pages…..and opened my own Nail Salon at Home. This worked out for about a year, until I realized I was too slow because of the pain my Cancer was causing my (Back and Rib pain), it’s a lot more work physically than you think.

Then I found something else, really thinking I could do this, a company called Sykes (ICT Marketing).  You get 5 weeks paid training, and then you start at a salary of about $12hr, but I don’t think that’s everywhere, plus you get your benefits after three months which are great.

This is a great company to work for, but it was too much for me.  Seeing I had my Cancer, yet again it slowed me down, and this is a full time Job and I would have preferred part-time.  That’s when I’ve decided to become a writer, since I have so much to say and offer.  I hope you Enjoy my Books as much as I Enjoyed writing them!!!  GOOD LUCK IN YOU JOB HUNTING!

Looking for a better way to Work From Home?  Don't know where to start, or where to look for the Best Scam Free Jobs?  Tired of being SCAMED and getting little or no money? Don't know who to trust anymore?
THEN THIS IS IT...In this book I will advise you as to How you can start Working From Home.  I will give you ways to avoid scams, what you need to start, and how you can find legitimate Work at Home Jobs.  Believe me it all depends on what you’re willing to do, anything is possible. 
Since there are so many sites and so many types of Work at Home Jobs, this will be the first of a series of 5 books. This series of Books will also save you time and money. 
Believe me I've been there and have done my share of working the 9 to 5 way, and Working at Home.  Now I've decided to become a writer, since I have so much to say and offer.
Being able to Work from Home also saves;
•Gas Money, and whatever other transport method used!!
