[ - ] Let's look at Josh's statement. “Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends. I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation. We spoke with the authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing, and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling. I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my life.” 6 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] Another thing I don't get about the career SAHMS. Presumably they have hobbies, right? So why aren't they trying to get paid to do those things that they enjoy doing? I mean, its not that hard to get a website together and put your things on a site like Etsy, or do a fulfillment thing with Amazon, or sell things to retailers if you just plan it out and incorporate a proper marketing system. Are you going to make $100,000? Nope. But you could make $25k a year after a few years of trying, easily, running a business from your house. Why isn't every SAHM doing this? And yes, I do know six or seven moms doing just this kind of thing. It's not impossible. 6 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
