HAVEN'T YOU HEARD?
 
Buying from Mom and Dad is the new black.
It is a trend that promises to radically reshape everything we've ever known about consumerism. Don't look now, but despite the fact that we are doing whatever it takes to get by on as little as possible,  we are in the midst of one of the greatest societal renovations of all time. It is your commitment to purchasing from small business and using the services that are provided to you by the parents of your community that contributes significantly to the rebirth of the new economy. Your hard work and perseverance has not gone unnoticed.

There is a new boss in town... it's your child.
Never again will we lose sight of where our loyalty lies and where it will be echoed.  If you are a parent, you know that the love you have for your children fills an emptiness that neither a great career nor a sparkling house can fill. That concept is what will continue to drive us in our mission to provide top notch service from our home-based businesses without compromising our need to be great parents. We have taken our priceless, world class corporate experience, and said so long to anyone who threatens our choice to create our own financial stability. Never again will we submit ourselves to lowered standards of our own expectations, nor will we teach our children to do the same.

The time has come to embrace what we know and simplify the rest.
You've worked hard! Now pat yourself on the back, give your kids a kiss and get ready to collect your reward. It's right around the corner- you'll see. Every month we get a little closer to greatness- and for many of us- we've already arrived.

Wonderful for Every Parent
by KatyMcC

Ally offers sage advice for parents and truly the most easy to follow directions on how to come home and be with your family while still being able to help support the. Thank goodness for Ally!

There is Proof in this Pudding
by GPM04

I’ve become so hooked on this show!  Ally Loprete has a way about her that assures you that in additional to sincerely caring, you know exactly what she cares about. Ally takes on not one, but TWO subjects which are highly emotional in today’s family unit landscape: Parenting and Family Income. In fact, this is a refreshing show that provides parents with solid information on how to maximize their business ideas while working from home and REALLY PARENTING their children at the same time. I particularly enjoy hearing about the progress of a caller named Katy, who has some great tasting cookies and needed some input on how to market them while she stays home to parent her children.  In just three weeks, Ally’s marketing advice has inspired Katy to give her cookie business such a positive momentum that I chuckled to hear Katy gleefully complain about how fast things are starting to happen. Thanks for your inspired efforts, Ally.  I’m looking forward to hearing that smiling voice on your next show. (And Katy...send me some of those cookies!)
