Loving your job? Yes, it’s possible!

“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” –Confucius
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to wake up in the morning — a weekday morning, not even a weekend — and be excited about the day ahead of you? For most of us, weekdays are the ultimate juggling act: work, kids, sports, after-school activities, finding something quick and easy to make for dinner, getting everyone ready for bed and then starting all over again the next morning. Sounds familiar, right?

The reality is, most people are unhappy with “the daily grind.” In fact, a recent Business Insider article says most people dread their mornings, as their days are occupied by jobs they chose for the wrong reasons — a means to an end that leaves them feeling unfulfilled.

But it doesn’t need to be that way. You can take control of your destiny and your happiness! One way to increase satisfaction with your job? Work from home. While you’ll still be balancing responsibilities of life — work and family — the flexibility of a home-based business can change your life. Here’s how:

Choose your hours: Yes, you will still need to work, but you will decide what type of schedule works best for you. Need your mornings free to get the kids off to school? You can do that. Are weekends completely off limits? You can do that, too!

Create your own path: Rather than trying to squeeze yourself into a mold where you just don’t fit, working for yourself allows you to decide EVERYTHING for yourself. Set your own expectations and goals, realistic ones that mirror your aspirations not those of your boss, your co-workers or the company you work for. As an entrepreneur, you make all these decisions.

No more commute: This one is actually a biggie. The top 10 benefits of working from home listed in this Forbes Magazine article rank saving on gas money, avoiding traffic, foregoing a long commute and environmental friendliness as top reasons.

Make it a part-time gig: Maybe your day job is satisfying, and you are happy with it, but you are looking for ways to make a little extra money. A home-based business is the perfect way to supplement your income.

Or maybe you’d like to test the waters of working for yourself. A home-based business on a part-time basis is a great way to see if you’re ready to spread your entrepreneurial wings!

There’s no need to coast through your days on fumes. Make your job, and your life, what you want it to be! Interested in finding out more about opportunities through SendOutCards? Take a peek here.

Friendship - Tell them now, not in an eulogy

Original post on website/newsletter Nov. 21, 2104

You’re like peas and carrots. Peanut butter and jelly. Buzz and Woody. Bert and Ernie. No matter what happens, through the good and bad, happy and sad, you’ve never left each other’s side.

How do you describe a friendship like that? Here are some famous quotes about friendship. Which one captures your friendship best?

“Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one.’” – C.S. Lewis

“A friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become, and still, gently allows you to grow.” – William Shakespeare

“A friend is someone who knows all about you and still loves you.” – Elbert Hubbard

“My best friend is the one who brings out the best in me.” – Henry Ford

“Friends are those rare people who ask how you are and then wait for the answer.” – Unknown

“Growing apart doesn’t change the fact that for a long time we grew side by side; our roots will always be tangled. I’m glad for that.” – Ally Condie

“The real test of friendship is can you literally do nothing with the other person? Can you enjoy those moments of life that are utterly simple?” – Eugene Kennedy

“Friendship isn’t a big thing — it’s a million little things.” – Unknown

Good friends are hard to find and impossible to forget. Let these simple quotes inspire you to make time for your special friend today. Nurture what you share together and send them your love in a custom card or gift today.

Let Your Positive Attitude Lead the Way

 original date: October 20, 2014

 As an entrepreneur, you have an amazing opportunity. You have the power to create a business that encourages people to promote goodness and embrace the positive.
Imagine a world where people actually act on their promptings to make a difference in the lives of others? That’s what SendOutCards is all about! We’re also about building and maintaing relationships and promoting a positive attitude.

Let this opportunity guide the goals of your professional life. It is possible to make a difference in people’s lives! And it all starts with your attitude. Here are a few ways a positive attitude will contribute to a better bottom line for your business:

Set realistic goals and view them in a positive light. Put your mind in a place to desire success and then strive for it. Yes, achieving goals can be difficult, especially when you are first starting out, but if you focus your energy on how difficult it is to achieve your goal, you are devoting your efforts to a dead end. Remember that the purpose of goals is to give yourself something to strive for!

Don’t underestimate the power of your mind. Every time you tell yourself that you have talent and you can succeed, you water a small seed of confidence that will help you grow into the person you want to become. It also doesn’t hurt to surround yourself with people who are great at cheering you on!

Remember that your attitude affects those around you. Building connections is by nature a group undertaking, and it’s your responsibility to be a positive example to people. If you tell others to be positive but don’t take your own words to heart, they will eventually notice, and your words will be meaningless.

Rely on your optimism to re-energize yourself. We all feel discouraged sometimes, and we all run into those among us who doubt us or even try to tear us down. But successful people climbed the mountains in their lives by revitalizing themselves. They came to a point where they began generating their own optimism and positive energy to keep themselves going when everyone around them thought they’d fail.

Take this opportunity to create positive goals that will ultimately strengthen the foundation of your business, so you can enjoy the journey to the greatest extent and achieve the success you desire.

Thank Goodness for Residual Income

WOW - June already?!? After my March post when I was "returning," you may be wondering where I have been. Well... healing and such took a different path and this surgery has been more than I expected. It is over - you've seen the photos. I will save you my 'poor story,' as I choose to look at the positives. I still have so many other things that others in the world do not, so I am not going to give any more time to my surgery or outcomes or final results.  I AM healthy, I AM eating many regular foods, and I AM more knowledgeable when it comes time for my children to need orthodontic care.

SO... yes, I am back! Back to blogging and our training of out-lying team members. In the last six months, we've done a lot with our personal sponsors; however, I didn't reach out to others (because of above difficulties). That is over. You (we) still have half a year to go and a lot of people to reach out to and share the products and the opportunities that SOC offers.

In closing I would like to state how grateful our family is for residual income. We have had more success in SendOutCards than I did in 7 years with another company. And our goal to create the same for others these next six months... those on the fence just need to get started.

To quote our SOC Leader and #1 income earner, Jordan Adler, "It's not like you join your company and make money. It's the business you create that causes you to make money! Money is made as a result of the volume you create." And thank goodness we have that volume... thank goodness for residual income.

If you haven't read Jordan's book, "Beach Money" put that on your summer reading list - you will thank me. Need a copy? Send one to yourself with a card from our site today!

I AM here for you - reach out and connect.

Wishing you only the best,

I'm Baaack! Return to "work" post surgery

Dear Friends and Followers -

Thank you! Thank you for emails and cards sent the last couple months as I recovered from an upper and lower jaw surgery. It was a schedule surgery, but it has taken a long time to heal, including talking and eating. I still am on a limited diet, but trying to increase my ability to open mouth and strength to chew.

As I thank you my followers for your concern and well wishes, I need to also extend a huge amount of gratitude and appreciation to our team (downlines), but also to cross-line members who helped us with our business and customer needs while I couldn't talk.  WOW is all I can say. I always knew SendOutCards was top-notch for customer care and our training, but the willingness of this SOC FAMILY is amazing. I had cross-lines making follow-up phone calls, personal step by step walk throughs for holiday cards and just going above & beyond.  And do you know how much of my commission these cross-lines made for their effort? None... immediately. There is no compensation for/to them as we are not in the same line; however, these SOC rockstarts extended their time and insight.... which helped us, our customers, and the reputation of SOC.

To my family, I couldn't have made it this long without you. My husband did everything, my in-laws were here for a week when he couldn't be and my children were well behaved allowing Mom to heal. I am grateful for SendOutCards and the time and money freedoms. I would never have been able to take 10-12 weeks off from a j-o-b and still make an income. I would be lucky to return to a job...

We are blessed and have already started to return the favors. I am back to doing webinars, gift account walk-thrus, training and more! Slow and steady has always won the race for us and it feels good to be back. Y'all were missed.

April is just around the corner. Let's make the next month your best yet... no fooling.

Chip at It - One Day, One Goal at a Time

“Bang! Bang! Bang!”  That is the sound surrounding me today as floor tile is replaced in our kitchen.  And the banging and chipping of the tile sent my mind wandering about “chipping” at things in your life.  How a little effort goes a long way… the little chip to remove the grout between two tiles eventually leads to the entire floor being removed – and replaced.  If our contractor did not attempt the “little chip” (no matter how minor it appeared), the floor would never be complete.
What is the dream or goal you are striving for? While it may seem like a huge, over-whelming feat or unattainable goal… it isn’t. It might have been, if you did it all at once; however, what if you did it “step by step” and chipped off the little goals on your way to the final prize. It’s an analogy question used often when teaching project management, “How do you eat an elephant?” Yep – one bite at a time.

As stated, often the elephant analogy might be used in regards to a project or task – goals to have the person break down their task into smaller increments… and you can use the same thought with your business goals.
Almost everyone I meet in network marketing is striving to be a leader in their company. Unless they are a hobbyist, the consultant of a company wants more.  Well, none of us can be the top level consultant in our business without climbing the steps in rank and advancing step by step.

Look at your company’s plan for advancement and make smaller goals… smaller bites that you can achieve now.  If you are on our CardsAndMohr SendOutCards team, connect with us for your individual next step and/or goal.  If you want details of our compensation or rank advancement plan, click on Proven Plan of Action to give you details. And if you want my story of the difference SOC has made in our family after 2.5 years, please ask. I spent almost 8 years with another company and never had the team or the success that we have now... and it our goal to mentor and provide you (and your family) the same too. 
All my best! --Danielle

Find your ZING!

Hi Friends -
I love it when the simple act of going to the movies with your kids, brings about more than one lesson. Such was the case with our rain day choice, ""Hotel Transylvania."

In the movie, we learn about feeling that spark - or *zing* that was once felt between the Vampire parents and now between their 118 y/o daughter, Mavis and the human, Johnny. Of couse, we all have stories of the *zing* we felt with our partners, but I can save that for another day. However, I will say, literally there was a spark on the first time my husband and I went on a group outing together. I won't say it was a date... because it wasn't. It was a group of us racing Big Wheels- see I told you it was a story for another day.

The *zing* made me think about following anything that sparks life for you! When you feel that excitement.... in love, career, adventure. To paraphrase the movie, "you only feel that zing once." And for me, the *zing* is the thing! To me, the *zing* has been my love with my husband, which created the love for our kiddos - and when our family felt complete... but the *zing* I feel passionate about is our network markering career with SendOutCards. Where else can you be your own boss and create your own legacy? Where else do you control your schedule and income? We are blessed and it is so exciting to now see others on our team succeed.

So if you read this - whethere on our CardsAndMohr team, searching for a company or already affiliated with another company, I encourage you to go find your ZING. What do you have to lose? You may just end up changing your life by following that feeling... that what-if.

Shoot for the moon!
Hugs, Danielle
