Friday Coffee Video

Good morning!

Those who’ve been following along know that I have recently been sticking my hands in all the pots. But I’ve finally gotten to the point where it’s more advantageous for me to narrow my focus, which actually works out great since I’m definitely ready to slow down.

And it’s Friday! It’s time for us all to slow down. So, here’s a funny video to get you through the last day of the week:

Make Money from Home

Hello!

Recently I’ve been looking into ways to make money from home, and I came across an opportunity that I think y’all will really like:

UserInterviews!

This website is a way that business owners can test new products and services before rolling them out to the general population. And they are willing to spend money to do so since it can save them a lot of money in the long run.

What this means for you is that you can make up to $100 an hour in certain cases by giving your opinion.

Just go to the website and sign up as a participant. Then, scroll through the list of different opportunities, pick one that you like, and apply. You should hear back in a few days, and then you can give your opinion and make money.

This is actually a really neat way to make money online – especially for SAHMs or anyone needing to work at night so they can focus on other things during the day. UserInterviews could actually replace your full-time job!

Good Morning Goals

Good morning!

I hope your day is starting off great! Mine is going pretty good.

Yesterday was so wonderful. I got out of the house and went to a coffee shop. With the Wi-Fi, I was able to get so much work done that I didn’t have to work while I was at home with my toddler. I could just play with him, and it was great.

So today, I want to be able to do something similar. My goal is to spend an hour or two in the morning to do work, and then spend the rest of the day living my own life. This is one of the secrets that all the super successful people talk about. Work really hard for a short period of time, and then spend the rest of the day enjoying life.

So I’m gonna get some coffee and do that.

I Bought Coffee at a Shop Today

Hello!

I hope you’re all having a wonderful day! I’m sitting having coffee in a local coffee shop.

Yes, you heard that right. I’m in a coffee shop. And I bought some coffee.

But it’s ok. Here, let me show you the math. A small cup of drip coffee (with free refills) costs $2. I can use the free Wi-Fi at the cafe. They’re closed on Sundays, but even coming every other day of the month would only be $52. Getting internet to my house would be at least $100 a month. And this let’s me get out and network with other people in my community. And I have to ride my trike to get here, so it’s a free form of exercise. And I still make the majority of my coffee at home.

But I did use this free Wi-Fi to make some new merch for Katie’s Koffee. I’ve been getting very into making t-shirts recently.

You can find all of these things and more at my Etsy shop. There’s more on the way, so stay tuned.

If there’s anything you think would be great on a mug or shirt, message me, and we’ll see what I can do.

Gluten-free

Hello!

Eating a gluten-free diet is healthy for everyone, but it’s non-negotiable for some. Some people are fully allergic to gluten (the main protein in wheat), and some people (like me) are super sensitive to it.

Gluten is an inflammatory substance, and the body can only handle so much inflammation. If you use up most of that capability by eating gluten, then any other inflammation from life can cause things like this to happen:

That’s eczema. I had it semi-severely for 2 decades. I had multiple specialists tell me that my diet had nothing to do with it, but I finally took matters into my own hands. This is just 2 years after I cut gluten out of my diet:

Although this change has been fantastic for me, eating GF in some areas is difficult. I live in a tiny, southern town where most people don’t even know what gluten is. I can’t count the number of times I’ve been offered pasta as an alternative to pizza. And sometimes I just get really tired of going somewhere to eat only chips or go hungry.

And even if you manage to find a GF alternative, often they don’t taste very good. So you end up planning ahead and packing a lunch for yourself for everywhere you go. But sometimes you forget to plan ahead. Because life.

So I’m on a mission to share the really good GF products that I find. I have a page dedicated to just this.
