Independent or Laziness?
Seriously ladies, this is the 21st century why are some of you still solely dependent on a man? The ONLY and I do mean ONLY reason I can think of is LAZINESS. That more than likely strikes a nerve with some but that is the only excuse I can come up with. The ONLY way I would excuse it would be if you are a quadriplegic, bedridden, blind, deaf and can’t speak. Wow!! That sounds really harsh you’re probably thinking or maybe even saying it out loud. I make no apologies for my opinions we all have them.
How can I be independently Married?
First let’s cover the meaning of Independently Married-This means you are CONFIDENT in what YOU bring to the table aka relationship. You and your husband/wife/partner DISCUSS things like business partners do. You are a woman who wants not needs a man in her life. You both need love, compassion, respect and to be able to rely on each other.
An independent woman is a woman grounded in her faith. She knows what she believes and lives a life of integrity. She doesn’t compromise to fit into the crowd.
How can I help my husband financially?
Set aside some time each month to manage money and marriage: look over your budget, pay bills, and dream about the future. Regular Money Huddles give couples a place to talk through their financial concerns and find ways to work through them together and that means a lot less worry. See I’m not AGAINST marriage. I’m AGAINST men having a woman under their thumb or ruling. However you say it…It is what it is.
Okay. YOU CAN’T WORK OUTSIDE THE HOME. What can you do?
There are countless ways to make money from home. I do it. I operate Tillettville Beauty Homesteading from my desk. My “office space” is in our bedroom. It’s not fancy but I make VERY good money. Almost half of my husband’s income. I stay at home to take care of my elderly mother who can not be alone for long periods of time due to falling and COPD. She is 90 and we take care of her in our home and I will as long as I am physically able to.
Back to my home business. I have as many social media platforms that I can personally run by myself. They are YouTube, Facebook (personal and business pages), Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest and my blog here. http://www.TillettvilleBeauty.com I also manage a team of AVON reps Nationally. We are called National Team Beauty. I sell at President’s Club level. I earn everything the company puts out as incentives just by busting my butt and daily working my business. We are lovingly considered “The Homesteading AVON reps”. I absolutely love that title!
So while I’m on the subject of AVON representative let me tell you what you can get at President’s level. I earn 40% on just my sales. I am a Silver Ambassador and I earn off each representative up to my generation 3. There are higher levels and you better believe I am running for them. I will NEVER be 100% reliable on not just my husband but anyone to pay my bills or fill my belly.
You can start your OWN AVON BUSINESS for zero down. YES zero down. Your online store is ABSOLUTELY FREE. You are never charged for it. You can (as I do) share EVERYTHING from your online store to your social media at no cost. You can start recruiting 24 hours into starting your own business.
If your husband/partner died tomorrow could you pay the bills for the month? Do you have children? Would you be able to FEED them? Clothe them? Now, I don’t mean for this to come off morbid but just to shake you up a little. Could you?
Where there is a will there is a way
When and IF you TRULY want to be a partner in your relationship you will bring to the table anything to “help” and hopefully more. I am on a mission to get more women to be strongly independent and lovingly in a stable relationship.
What other ways can you make money?
Write a blog. Join Adsense. Start a YouTube channel. Become an affiliate of Amazon. Post links from your Amazon affiliaton on your blog and other social media. Write ebooks. Online surveys. Sell your stuff. Everyone has boxes of “stuff” they haven’t touched in years. Sell it and get cash and more space. Use Amazon, ebay or marketplace.
