Saturday

Mr. Mom - Family Is A Full Time Job

I got to preview this upcoming series and I have to say that every single part of this series is relatable in one way or all together!

This show Mr. Mom, kept my attention and if I missed anything, I had to rewind!

I don't want to spoil it too much for you but I'll share just a few tidbits.

I remember going on a job interview and it was all set for me, except I had to work on Saturdays also and the thing is, During the week, my kids were at school and I get to go home before they got out of school. It was perfect! The job was so perfect that I almost thought of having them come sit in a booth while I worked on those Saturdays! I had to turn down the job :(  So this episode of the mom bringing the kids to an interview and stashing them in a booth across the room resonates so much!

Another part in the series touched on 'forgotten Anniversary' and I'm sure this has happened more often than not :) How do you work through that little hiccup?

This definitely held my attention and I'm so glad that I got the priviledge to watch the entire season in one go or I'd go nuts if I missed an episode!

I hope you got to see the premiere and if you have not, then please catch up and let me know your thoughts.

ABOUT THE MOVIE:
Based on the classic eighties hit film written by John Hughes and starring Michael Keaton, this series is a modern retelling of Mr. Mom.

Megan (Andrea Anders) and Greg (Hayes MacArthur) are at a parenting crossroads. After five years raising their two kids at home, Megan has unexpectedly landed her dream job.

Greg’s career is anything but a dream job, so after several failed attempts at securing childcare he abruptly quits in order to take his turn as the stay-at-home parent. He’s thrust headlong into a world of tantrums, diapers and cheese sticks, all while finally attempting to get his start-up off the ground.

Megan quickly finds out just how much has changed as she reenters a workplace filled with overeager millennials and strange new terms like Slack and hot-desking. It’ll take all the patience these two parents can muster as they try to raise their kids, make ends meet, and find a little time for their marriage.

The Fallen Cowboy - Love Heals All Wounds

Love heals all wounds …

THE FALLEN COWBOY Love heals all wounds … Out of commission saddle bronc rider Jess Coldiron is putting his horse skills to work by serving as the Executive Director of the Promise Point Horse Rescue Ranch.

Jess’s gift for taming wild broncos and pretty women has taught him that both can take a man from zero to ninety in seconds, shake him senseless, and damn near kill him if he landed the wrong way. And Jess had.

So bumping anything but heads with the beautiful Mallory Montgomery ? his sister-in-law’s estranged sister ? is out of the question. Mallory came to Santa Camino, Texas, to fulfill her mother’s dying wish of reuniting with her sister, not to fall for a cowboy with a Texas-sized chip on his shoulder about the limp in his swagger and the woman in his past. But the ruggedly handsome, once famous bronc rider has a sexy smile and a fiery touch that ignites a spark in her every time they’re together.

Mallory knows there’s only one way to get Jess back in the saddle, but she wants more than he’s willing to give. And seducing the fallen cowboy may cost Mallory her heart.
About Mina As a teenager, Mina spent her summers in Texas consuming Diana Palmer romance novels. She’s been addicted to cowboys ever since. She and her husband live on a small farm in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains with their two sons, six rescue dogs, and three miniature horses.

She's an artist, photographer, and an avid reader. Life in her corner of the world consists of long winter nights curled up by the fire, cheering on her favorite football teams in the fall, enduring March Madness in the spring and walking barefoot through her garden with a cold jar of tea in the summer ? fireflies at sunset accompanied by a serenade of crickets and frogs, and lazy nights in the porch swing.

Pick up the prequel novella The Cowboy’s Goodnight Kiss for FREE on Mina’s website!

7 Tips to Help Your Kids Learn About Money

As kids head back to school, one thing they won’t learn in the classroom is how money really works and what they have to do to be successful with it.

How can parents help teach their children important money lessons that will help them for the rest of their lives?

Sharon Lechter is one of the world’s premier experts for financial literacy and entrepreneurial success. She is author of Think & Grow Rich for Women,’ coauthor of the classic book ‘Rich Dad Poor Dad,’ and her newest release, ‘Success & Something Greater,’ features never released material from Napoleon Hill.



Sharon’s tip to helps kids be more successful with money:

1. Solve a problem or serve a need:
At its core, the easiest way to earn money is to solve a problem.
All successful businesses, no matter how big or small, solve a problem or serve a need.

Help your kids look around the house, the neighborhood and anywhere else they spend time. Where can they lend a hand in exchange for money? It can be anything like mowing lawns, walking dogs, cleaning pools, washing cars and so on.

It’s not about the amount of money they make, but the key is to start to get them thinking like an entrepreneur from an early age.

Additionally, teach them that they don’t have to be the one delivering the solution. If they create a babysitting network or dog walking crew, their earning power will increase dramatically because they won’t be limited to how much time they can spend themselves. This takes more due diligence and responsibility, but it is a lesson that will serve them for a lifetime.

2. Teach your kids the importance of mindset:
Like most things in life, making money comes down to how you think about it. If you believe you are worthy of riches, you have a better chance of acquiring wealth.

Similarly, if you grow up not expecting much out of life or to just be getting by, that’s more than likely going to be the outcome.

Inspire your kids to think big and to reach beyond their wildest dreams. Remember, thoughts become things. As a parent or concerned adult, you have the ability to plant seeds of empowerment and self-reliance.

Be mindful of your own beliefs around money and what you may be passing down to your children.


3. Talk to your kids about money language:
Many kids these days grow up hearing negative messaging about money. Phrases like “we can’t afford it” and “money doesn’t grow on trees” creates scarcity programming.

Teach your kids that money is not a scarce resource and they have just as much opportunity to become financially successful as anyone else.

Be mindful of your own language when you have money discussion and encourage your kids to start asking the question, “How can I afford it?” Or, “How can I earn money?”

Teach your kids to see money as a positive force and an avenue to create abundance not just in their life, but in the lives of others.


4. Teach them about money early on:
Sadly, learning how money really works isn’t taught in school. Sure, your kids might learn how to write a check or balance a checkbook, but that’s not going to make any child wealthy or successful.

Teach your children how money works in the real world, how to grow and invest their money, how to budget their money properly and how to avoid wasteful spending. Keep conversations age appropriate and interesting to keep your child’s attention.

Many parents avoid the subject because they themselves don’t feel comfortable or don’t know how to teach about it. Be open with your children about the money lessons you have learned and utilize third-party tools such as the ThirveTime Game if you don’t feel that you have the knowledge you need to help your kids better understand money.


5. Teach them to learn from failure:
There’s no such thing as a successful person who has never failed. In fact, most successful people fail over and over again.

Teach your kids that failure is a part of life and is a key ingredient to becoming successful and wealthy.

Failure is an event...not a definition. Let your kids know it’s what they do with their failures that count. They need to learn from their mistakes, dust themselves off and get right back on the horse.

Share with them your own stories of learning from failure, or find information about other individuals that your kids look up to that will support you in showing them that failure is simply one step closer to success.


6. Teach your kids that they are capable:
Life isn’t always easy, and as parents, we want to protect our kids from disappointment and hurt. But one of the most important ingredients to a child’s self-esteem is their feeling of capability. When they make a mistake, face a challenge or solve a problem, they gain confidence. That’s why it’s important to not do everything for your kids or make all of their decisions for them.

The sooner they learn if they want something bad enough, they have to set a goal, create a plan and accomplish their goals, the better. This is one of the best life lessons you can teach your kids in the pursuit of financial success.

Helping to develop a sense of age appropriate self-reliance and responsibility now is going to help them down the road.


7. Celebrate the little wins:
One of the biggest obstacles many successful people face is that they don’t know when to stop and acknowledge their accomplishments.

We live in a world where we can be constantly comparing ourselves to others and to our own idea of success.

Teach your kids that becoming successful requires a lot of hard work, but they also have to learn when to take a break, relax and clear their minds, as well as celebrate how far they have come.

Success begets more success, but you have to see it and acknowledge it in order for it to build momentum.
