I just started 2 businesses. I don't think I can talk about them here on SP. I think it's considered advertising, so I won't. I will say that they are challenging me to run both.

In 2009, I started a business coating flat roofs white in my city. The white coating reflects sunlight to keep buildings cool, save energy and money. It extends roof-life and is beneficial to the community and environment as well. In addition, I'm a solar sales rep; I conduct the solar site analysis and meet with prospects.

Running my own business is rewarding in several ways--I enjoy the work and customers, and I take pride in knowing I'm making a difference. Recognition is rewarding, too--I'm known as a ground-breaker in my field, so I get invited to speak at conferences. It's not an easy living, however. My business is seasonal; this winter I'm driving for FedEx. Sometimes I get burned out and don't follow through the way I ought to. Being around other entrepreneurs tends to energize me, so I look forward to reading the posts here from time to time!

Eat to fuel your body, instead of working out to offset calorie consumption.

Courage comes from the Old French for "heart". To be courageous literally means to do something heart-felt.

Hi Entrepreneurs,
I have an HR tech company. We create employment applications for mobile devices so people can easily apply for jobs anywhere -- from any device. This helps companies increase their applicant pool so they can find more qualified candidates.

We use texting and QR codes to direct candidates to the employment application, to screen them, and to engage them. There's nothing worse than having your application go into cyberspace, so we make the recruiting process more engaging.

Check us out at http://hrvirtuoso.com

This business is mostly word of mouth! Just like I did with you.. send a link. I like to call people and chat with them and then have them watch the link. Then I get a business partner on the line and answer any questions people have!

Yes.. I will send you an email. We too are building a new Facebook page ! Our hope is to have it as a fan page with a link to our site as well as profiles of our business!

Morning happy,
thanks for sending the link . I have my facebook page down since I'm redoing it. Getting a fan page done.
Can you send it to my email? Or when I get mine back up I'll friend you or like if yours is a fan page. Just curious, how are you advertising for prospects since you can live anywhere and marketing ambit services? Thanks, Georgianna

Hi, happy-d,
just looked over the ambit info.. Good concept. When I lived in Texas back in 2005 to 2007 I had green mountain energy that sent portion of your payment to renewable energy sources. Had great savings with them. Sorry, I can't be a customer. I live in Florida now. Any plans for it to be offered in Florida? Do you have a facebook invite or website you can email me at georgianna407@gmail.com.
I know people who may be interested in tx and ny.
thanks for sending.
Best regards,
- Georgianna

Hi, Happy D.
Thank you for the welcome. Glad to meet you.
I am fairly new to SP and just love the community and all the neat tools and information that are on their website. I myself have lost 30 lbs within the last year. I'd like to loose a little more but I'm not complaining!

Thank you for looking over my business websites as you are searching for your dental and vision coverages. I hope that AmeriPlan may help provide what you need.

In a past life I was in the hearing field and I am happy to say that AmeriPlan added hearing services to the medical plans; however it is not offered on the Dental Plus program. Depending on what state you are from, some of the dentists have their fee schedule posted. Click on the "find provider" tab.

Just for your FYI, AmeriPlan is not offered in the following states: Alaska, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Puerto Rico, Vermont, and Wyoming.

If you have any questions about the plans or about enrollment, please don't hesitate to reach me via email georgianna407@gmail.com. If any of these plans don't meet your needs, please feel free to forward my websites to anyone who may benefit.

Best regards and keep up the great success in reaching your goals!
Georgianna Kwan

P.S. will check out your business website.. and respond in your second message you sent me.

Hi, all,
It is great to be here! I look forward to getting to know all. One of the best points of being a business owner is that it has helped me achieve better life balance.Since I have been a WAH, I have been able to manage my weight goals and stress levels.

I am an independent business owner with AmeriPlan USA. I like that I am able to help individuals and families save on their health and every day to day needs with the discounted fee for service health, dental, vision, and prescription plans and store savings offered.

I wish everyone much success in reaching their personal goals!
Best Regards,
Georgianna Kwan (a.k.a. Gigi)

I develop mobile employment applications for companies. My product has a virtual recruiter function. Candidates get a confirmation text and the virtual recruiter answers basic questions about benefits, schedules, etc.

I am still in launch mode: looking for companies to beta with me. Website will be up soon!

My business is probally a little different. It is basically a full time job for me but I still have a part time job as a Rn. I make Handcrafted soap and all natural bath products. I started it when I wanted to make soaps for my daughter who had severe acne and then it ventured into soaps for cancer and burn patients. I only sold my soaps to a cancer doctor who could not keep them in stock in his office. I now have a website in addition to selling at farm markets and a few doctors in my area. I also make salves and natural remedies and holistic beauty products.

Uh, you want to check that link you sent for www.daniellestrand.com. Seems to be one of those free Google sites and it's not up right now at 12:20 p.m. EST Friday afternoon. Hmmm.

Invest some of that *incredible money* you mentioned in your own host to reduce the likelihood of this common problem with free sites. LOL! Joking but you know...

Interesting. Good luck with branching out. Its tough out there as the private and corporate world is cutting back on entertainment. I know. I've been in it for 30 years - representing talent. Its a good time to regroup and get healthy

Wow - what a really interesting group. Nice to be able to share more than fitness- and health-related stuff.

I am a professional Virtual Assistant and project manager. Most of my clients I only meet when they fly me out to attend seminars or work on a project (which is always fun because then I get to meet the families and chill out away from home while acting like a tourist).

The one thing I've learned about working from my home office is that the built-in workout of commuting from NJ to NY for years really forces me to be deliberate about adding activity to my days to ward off the calories and keep off the extra pounds. I never thought I'd miss running for the bus, scurrying for the subway and then scrambling down the street while balancing a coffee and a muffin but it was a free workout every day. And in heels no less! Ahh, the things we take for granted.

I've clicked on some of the links here and will be following many of you on Facebook and Twitter (if there are links on your listed sites). Nice to know you all!

Almost a quarter of the year gone - whatcha gonna do with the rest of it? Let's keep movin' (in business, in fitness and in health)!

My business is still part time (may stay that way always; hard to predict). It's a small mobile entertainment company - our biggest offering is mobile DJ work. I've been a wedding professional doing this for more than a dozen years, and have branched out into planning and coordinating weddings as well. In addition, we offer glitter tattoos for kids parties and festivals, and a line of concessions, with our primary product being Italian Ice (dairy, cholesterol, nut, and fat free). The magic age for DJ's to get out of weddings is 50, and as I reach that landmark this year, I'm working to shift the music part of the business to corporate, school, and charity events, as well as more music production (I'm hoping to set up a collaboration with another member I connected with here on Spark). My first couple of tests are up on SoundCloud already, and I have a workout/Zumba mix partly completed.

Like I said, it's part time; my main job as a technical trainer for a software company is the family's main support, but who knows where this will lead. I'm always open to a new adventure!

Those who say it can't be done are usually interrupted by those already doing it.

I started selling Avon last summer. My true passion is to open up my own health supplement store. I'm getting there. I am working at a Health food store now, as well as Avon.

Hi everyone! Wow, you guys have some great creative jobs!!
On Jan. 1, 2011 I started a long arm quilting company. Bought the huge machine in 2010...hopefully a tax write-off!
I've been sewing since I was 7 and used to own an alteration company (The Alteration Station) for about 20 years. I had too much work, and it really messed up my hand (carpal tunnel). So in November '10 I finally had the surgery to fix my hand and now I'm off in a new direction :)
It's easier to deal with quilts than with brides sometimes :)

Hi, I'm Debbie and I just found this forum today. My hubby & I work for ourselves and wear many hats. It certainly stays a little upside down and crazy around here, but we wouldn't have it any other way. All the hours we put in make it easy to settle for unhealthy "fast" food rather than cook. Here's a list of all of our "hats":

We own and operate 107 multi-family rental units (two apartment complexes), several commercial buildings, a rental property management company, a restaurant and a silver jewelry business. I'm also an accountant (CPA), which helps me keep up with the books & taxes.

emoticonAs an Image Consultant and Makeup Artist I have the joy of participating in and guiding my clients' metamorphoses and seeing them blossom and grow. My goal is to participate with them in making Image choices that will enhance their businesses and career successes.

Having been a therapist for many years, I know that there is a deep direct connection between how we feel about ourselves and how we choose to present ourselves. For better or worse, that self view is telegraphed to others in a wink. (See Malcolm Gladwell's best-selling book "Blink").

I help people put their best traits on display and get approached by clients, colleagues and potential business partners before their competition. (See "The Halo Effect" by Phil Rosenzweig)thereby giving them an edge in our very competitive market place.

I've just started a women's apparel business called Aerial with my daughter. We design and produce draped dresses for special occasions using sustainably sourced knits. We're marketing our pieces in a high end women's boutique in Atlanta, will be showing in MA and CA shortly. We're so new that we've only this week received our labels and hang tags!
It's very exciting, and my goal is to make Aerial so successful that my daughter will be able to quit her day job running a boutique.
Any thoughts or suggestions are greatly appreciated!

I am new to the group, so a little background. Currently I work FT as glorified admin assistant. I have a B.S. in Information Technology and working on my Masters for Instructional Design for Online Learning. I hate my job. I love to create, design websites, instructional materials, digital scrapbook, and crafts so I am in the process of starting a business doing what I love. I will be starting with the scrapbook. I hope to have it fully launched in 6 months and quit my day job in a year. So any tips would be appreciated.

I JUST started my business at the first of this year. I make... are you ready for this..... gourmet cookies, custom cakes, caramel apples, other sweet treats and do small event catering. Yeah I know, right! Oddly enough I don't have much of a sweet tooth so I don't ever really eat anything I make.

Hello, I just started my own business cleaning houses in the beginning of March. I found 4 clients, or should I say they found me, and work has been pretty steady. I found free advertising with Craigslist and Facebook which has been Very helpful. I also am planning to put flyers out with my business cards up around town.

I have a few special things I do for each and every client, to make me Spring out from the competition; example: I leave an new air freshner each time I clean, and I am very reasonable in rates...if you have any other suggestions, I am open to them. I also considered cooking a meal for new clients who would be willing to take me on full time 1x a week. I haven't really gotten around to that yet. But, it was a great idea. Something that maybe you could throw into a crockpot or....sorry for the rambling, but that's me. Jen

Hi all, I just joined today! I'm a writer specializing in instructional design and informational/learning materials (as opposed to copywriting). I work from home 90% of the time and I have three kids. Balancing meetings, work and all the rest--well, you know how people think it sounds like a neat lifestyle, and YEAH, it IS, but it's... tricky? I need to find the "right" formula to make it all work for me.

Hi All, I'm so glad to have found this group! I'm a seasoned seller on ebay and have recently branched out on my own. I'm currently starting my own website and am so excited about my brand! If you couldn't tell from my username... "Bad-Doggie" is it! I just received my order of "Bad Doggie" Yoga Shorts and cant wait to get them on my website! Right now you'll find a pretty flirty & sassy pair of panties on there! I wore a pair at home & my fiance chased me all over the house! Check them out!

www.bad-doggie.com

I'm looking to replicate the Victoria Secret "Pink" idea with my "Bad Doggie" name. I'm in the process of creating t-shirts, and the capri length sweat pants. I also plan on eventually having the matching Yoga pants and zip up hoodie. Lots of hard work and money!

For right now you can find my vintage dolls and doll clothes at

www.baddoggie.etsy.com

I just got a ton of old Barbie, Francie, Ken, and Dawn dolls and furniture... It will be posted soon but I'm having a heck of a time identifying it!

Please check out my blogs! The first one is my wedding blog and the second is my bad doggie blog!
Both are lots of fun and very interesting!

Thanks! Michelle

Hi Vickie,

congrats on your business, sounds very interesting and fun...

i guess what you would need to do is make sure you are truly hungry and not just thirsty. sometimes drinking a glass of water will curb that 'hunger' pain.

i have been losing weight slowly, i am not giving up those foods that i love, i just consume a lot smaller of a quantity (so far it seems to be working pretty good).

how long have you been in business? do you have people working for you?

Hi - It's great to see this group on SP! I've been a classic on-off-on-off SP member, and run a business from home. Time to get back on, as I've managed to gain weight over the past 2 years that I've run my business.

I am a professional head-hunter, helping Canadian & American teachers move to work in London, England. I love my work (I taught in London for three years before starting this business) and I love working from home.

Last year, I hired a personal trainer for 36 sessions and lost 10% of my body fat (went from 39% to 29%) but didn't lose a single pound.

My work has really taken off, so I find that I'm at my computer for 60-70 hours/week and I really need to stop, take some time for myself and re-focus.

So here I am. Any words of wisdom?

Hi everyone,

I have been working as a virtual assistant for the past 2 years. I work from my very efficient home office and I serve clients nationwide. I work on average about 40-60 hours per week, depending upon my workload.

I love working from home because it allows me to earn a living and be with my boys. I don't have to worry about needing a sick day if one of my boys are sick because I can still work.

As a virtual assistant, my work varies. One day I may be editing a website and the next I might be conducting market research. I rarely do the same task two days in a row. Although that wouldn't bother me, I like the variety I have.

I have a website, www.virtualbusinessconcepts.com , that allows clients to log in to submit tasks/projects, pay their invoices, view time reports, or just hang out in our social network. I recently published my first white paper and I'm working on an e-book.

I am an antique textile dealer, specializing in antique quilts. I work from home, operate a website, and vend at various antique and quilt shows in NJ and PA. I am also a Quilt Appraiser, give lectures, assist museums and historical societies with their collections, and restore/conserve antique quilts.
I love that I can work from home while my girls are in school. It gives me the flexibility to help at school and go on class trips. I am also a Girl Scout Leader and soccer mom, and a dozen other activities. But still get to put in about 50-60 hours of work in a week.

My best,
Dana

I own a candle shop. We make all of our own candles, which is sometimes a workout in itself, believe it or not! www.nmcandleco.com

I also have a virtual assistant business.

The two together keep me quite busy!

It's really neat to see what types of businesses everyone is in. Great variety and lots of interesting choices!

Hello,
I am a Life Coach and Motivational speaker. I am also an aspiring writer. I have a small business in a small town in Southern Idaho. I love my job and I love helping people realize they have the power to create who they are. I have recently lost site of my own creating and have also recently gotten back on track. I find it hard to work in this type of business when I am not practicing what I preach...:-)

90% of reality, is what you CHOOSE to believe.

Today, I believe I am closer to reaching my goals each and every second!

Today, I believe that I deserve MORE!

Hi, I'm a marketing consultant, copywriter and strategist for small businesses. (www.LifetimeMarketingAdvisor.com). www.lifetimemarketingadvisor.com I really enjoy what I do, but as so many on here have said, it's tough running a business AND a life AND a healthy lifestyle! When I was in college I was meticulous about my wellness, but I've found it slipping the last couple years. So it's time to get back "on the wagon" and SP has already started to help me do that!

HI. I'm a motivational speaker and professional organizer (www.motivationspeaker.net). I really need to work on my weight, so my appearance looks professional while speaking. I eat well most of the time, but i have trouble remembering to exercise. When I do get on an exercise kick, then i blow my eating! I need to get both in check. I've been getting emails from sparks for several weeks, and tonight i thought i'd check out the website a bit for some encouragement. www.motivationspeaker.net

G'day Everyone,

Quick introduction from me. I run Perl Training Australia (perltraining.com.au/); we're a specialist computing training business with a wide range of clients across a range of sectors, including defence, resources, finance, health, IT and broadcasting.

The business has been running for about eight years, and gives me a rather hectic travel schedule. Two weeks ago I was in Portland, Oregon for OSCON (www.conferences.oreilly.com/oscon/), where I was given the honour of presenting the closing keynote. This week I'm in my home town of Melbourne, Australia. Next week I'm in Adelaide, two weeks after that Canberra, then Sydney, then back home again.

While all the travel is nice, it makes it challenging to settle into a pattern when it comes to regular workouts and meal planning. I'm still in the healthy weight range, but some of my old clothes seem to have shrunk; that why I'm here. ;)

It's fantastic to see how many different entrepreneurs we have here. If I'm ever in Cleveland, I'll make sure to drop by HappyMel's Dicehead Games. I've been a roleplayer since I was eight years old, and Dicehead Games looks awesome!

All the very best,

Paul

Wow, it was awesome to see the range of business owners on here! I own an upper scale second hand clothing store in Northern California (Chico). I love my store, but sometimes I feel like it consumes my life: I just opened 4 months ago and I am only 22. Talk about pressure and learning by experience!

I love what I do though, and really listened when my parents told me to find out what I love to do and find someone to pay me for it. :) I love finding a deal, learning about fashion, and helping young people dress in style and feel good about how they look for WAY less (not only is my store more of a boutique and I wash every thing that comes in the door, I am actually cheaper than the Salvation Army down the street!) I run the business by myself, though my husband is supportive and helps out. He'll run fliers around town, make copies, do that fun stuff so I can stay in the store.

I'm on Spark People because I am so busy, I was having a hard time finding time and money to eat well (I still don't have the money). So I'm learning from you and the support is wonderful. I've learned that squeezing in a workout, even if it is at 11pm as it was last night, is a key to me keeping my head on straight and letting out that stress.

I'm so happy to find a group of motivated people who are going through the same weight loss adventure on top of their already full lives!

What would you do if you knew you wouldn't fail?

When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot in it and hang on. - Thomas Jefferson
