1.      Welcome and Update from Elena

Hello again and a warm welcome to all the new subscribers who
have joined us since the last issue!

Apologies for not publishing AHBBO last week.  Crises on the
workfront gobbled up what precious little free time I had and
that meant AHBBO!

This week's article is for those of you who don't think you can
afford to give up work.  It may surprise you to learn just how much
that J.O.B. is costing you and how a home-based business could
be the answer.

As always, thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy this week's

Remember, this ezine is for YOU!  If you have comments or
suggestions for topics you would like to see addressed, or would
just like to share your experiences with other subscribers, I want
to hear from you!  Please send comments, questions and stories

2.      Home-Based Business Idea of the Week - Crafts

It's great to delve into an interesting hobby such as artwork,
photography, or crafting paper jewelry. It's even more exciting
(and financially rewarding) to turn your special talents into a
successful home-based business.

That's exactly what Mary Maturi of Cleveland Ohio, Leslie
Croyle of Bay Village, Ohio, and Marlene Stephenson of Virginia,
Minnesota, did. Each turned her hobby into a cash-generating
business complete with paying customers and a bank account.

These aren't isolated stories. Men and women across the country
are joining the ranks of entrepreneurs converting hobbies into
money-paying propositions. It's important to note that none of
these women originally planned to start a business. On the
contrary, interest by others in their hobbies convinced them to
sell their work.

3.      Feature Article - How the 9 to 5 Grind Could Be Costing
        You More Than You Earn

© 2013 Elena Fawkner

This article is directed to all you parents out there
with pre-school children who would prefer to quit your jobs
and stay at home with the kids but think you can't because
you think you "need" a second income. don't be so sure.
That 9 to 5 grind may be costing you more than itís paying

Let's say you're a parent of two pre-school children and
you're earning $25,000 a year ($500 a week) in your full-
time job. Let's see where the money goes.

First of all, you don't have family nearby to care for your
children while you're working so you put them in daycare.
That takes care of $150 a week, leaving $350.

You need a car to get to work and your kids to daycare.
Let's be optimistic and say you have only a modest car
payment of $50 a week. Your other expenses are fuel,
insurance and general maintenance. Fuel is $25 a week,
insurance $10. Allow another $10 a week for new tires,
servicing and repairs. So $95 a week goes towards your car.
That leaves $255 out of your weekly paycheck.

You work in a professional office so you must dress
accordingly and be well-groomed. Allow $10 a week for
clothes and accessories, another $5 if you're female for
cosmetics and haircare. There's another $15 a week leaving
you $240 out of your weekly paycheck.

With so much to do to get the kids organized in the morning,
you don't have time to make your lunch so you buy it every
day. At $5 a day that's $25 a week. You're down to $215 a
week now.

And after putting in a full day at work you don't always
have the time or energy to cook a family dinner from scratch
each night and so once a week you pick up take-out on the
way home ($20 for four people) and spend more on
prepackaged foods at the grocery store each week. Letís put
this at another $20 a week. This additional $40 a week for
convenience foods leaves you $175 out of your weekly

Still worth it, you say? Oops Ö forgot about taxes, social
security and health insurance! Better deduct another $100
a week for that little lot. Now you're at $75.

Now, you tell me, is $75 worth working a 40 hour week for?
Is your time really worth as little as $1.80 an hour? And
that's not even taking into account what your income does to
your partnerís tax bracket! Without being able to claim you
as a dependant it may put it over the top and the increased
tax paid on your familyís primary source of income could well
mean that the net contribution of that second income is a
deficit! If that's the case, itís actually COSTING you to
work outside the home.

If you find yourself in this situation, there is an answer
a home-based business. You can forget about daycare costs,
you're there! How difficult do you think it would be to make
$75 a week working from home? Easy! In fact, it would not
be difficult to generate the same level of income from your
home business as you were generating from your full-time job.

But because you don't need to incur the unnecessary expenses
such as daycare, vehicle expenses, clothing and food, you can
be MUCH better off. Not only that, you can now claim home
office tax deductions! And all of that's just focusing on
economics. Factor in lifestyle and family issues and a home-
based business can literally take your life back and give
you back to your family.

4.      Tips for Newbies

Are you worried about cookies? Don't have enough milk to
go with them? Okay, short of making a trip to the grocery
for more milk, here's how to ensure nobody sees your cookies.
The cookies.txt file is where 'cookies' from websites are
stored. Make this file a 'read only' file, and leave your
browser set to accept cookies. Just search your hard drive
(press F3 after clicking once on the dekstop--F3 brings up
the Search window) for 'cookies.txt', right click on the
file that's found, and be sure the 'Read Only'box has a
check mark in it. Your browser will accept cookies, but
the site that planted the cookie won't be able to read it.
Not sure WHY you would want to do this, but, if you're
into paranoia, it probably doesn't matter. "Just do it."
