I just feel like quitting!

Some days, I just feel like crying and giving up my dream of owning my own business. I keep feeling like my business is NOT moving forward. I think I’m doing what I am supposed to be doing, but I feel overwhelmed with everything.

Can you relate?

I’m trying to grow my business part-time while I am working full-time. I still have to make time learn how to grow my business, but there is sooooo much information that’s out there. I need to create content, set up email subscription, send out emails, reply to comments on my website and emails. On top of that, I have to make the meals, shop for groceries, clean the house (actually, I hire someone because I hate cleaning). I also need to spend time with my man, family and friends. And, then there’s exercise too.

Have you done your 2017 Taxes yet?

Have you completed your tax returns yet?

You only have until April 30, 2017 to complete them.

I finally completed my taxes using www.simpletax.ca for 2017 and really liked it. The main reason I used it is because 1) it’s free, 2) user friendly, but you do need to read up on the expenses for home business. While it’s FREE, I donated $10 bucks because….it’s worth it and, I saved $120 from having to use an accountant. Not that I wouldn’t use one again, but right now, my revenue and expenses are not complicated and, I am enjoying doing them. Oh, and the good news…I am getting a REFUND!!!!

If you haven’t started, don’t wait too long to get your taxes done, especially if you think you have to pay. Revenue Canada doesn’t have a problem charging you interest if you are late in paying.

If you are or someone you know is a tax preparer or specialist, please email me. I am looking for experts who would like to posts articles on my blog that helps small part-time businesses.

Good luck and get er done! Sorrry, I know it’s slang, but it’s much fun to say.

Are you looking for deals on travel or trips?

If you’re anything like me, you love the summers. Well, summer is disappearing quickly and for me, I need my vitamin D. So, the next best thing is going down south for 1 week in the winter. There are tons of places to find good deals online, but I noticed that the prices seem to be all the samen on the sites. Here are a few places that I look at and have used in the past. Who knows, maybe I’ll see you on our next vacation:)

Travel Zoo

Red Tag

Itravel2000 (I found this one to be a bit more pricey)



Sunwing.ca (Just used them to book our trip to Punta Canada and best part…we filled out survey last year and got $50 travel voucher to use on next trip.)

Flight Centre

Cheapcaribbean  (I used them when I went with my best friend to Mexico. They were really good because she was coming from Texas and I was coming from Ottawa, Ontario)

However, no matter which one you chose be sure to check out the reviews from others on Trip Advisor..BUT…don’t believe everything you read. Remember that people are different, have different sensitivities, maybe prefer to spend more time in their room. Me personally, I want a social atmosphere with more than 3 restaurants and good drinks, and fun games that are organized for adults:). If they have all this…sign me up!
