I hope you had a great weekend. My kids went back to school last Tuesday and I’m happy to say things are back to normal around here. I posted some back to school pictures on the forum (feel free to post your back to school pictures too!).

Let’s talk about finding honest product reviews and recommendations. This is always a tough one, especially when everywhere you turn online there seems to be some new product claiming you can make fast money and offering big promises. It’s really difficult to know who to trust or where to invest your hard-earned money.

For moms it’s especially difficult because we’re often on limited budgets and when we invest in a product, we need reassurance that it’s going to help us.

Here are a few tips to help make the buying decision easier:

If you’re unsure of the quality of a product, go to a few trusted forums and ask. Many moms are happy to give you honest feedback and advice on products they’ve used, so don’t hesitate to ask for help.

If you’re undecided between several products, asking for opinions on all your product choices can really help you decide which may be just right for you.

You can also do a search online and find trusted review sites where members post unbiased reviews and opinions.

And if you have a few pressing questions, you can always email the product seller and ask before you make the purchase. Of course, search on the site for answers first since many products will have an FAQ section.

At Internet Based Moms, we have several resources to help you as well. You can visit our friendly message boards and chat to other members about products.

I’ve put together a “Mom Recommends” section, where I’ve listed all the products I’ve used to build my business and wholeheartedly recommend. Find it at:

Alice Seba and I have some ongoing product recommendations and tips. You’ll also find resources where you can voice your opinions on the products you’ve used. Find that at:

I hope all of this helps. And remember you can always ask for advice over at the forums at

Finally, this week, I want to introduce you to another one of our expert bloggers – Rhea Perry.

I get exhausted just thinking about everything that Rhea does. She’s a homeschooling mom of 7 and teaches families how to make money at home with the Internet, real estate, the stock market, eBay, publishing and other ventures.

Rhea’s sharing some excellent family entrepreneurial tips so stop by and absorb, ask questions and enjoy!

Take care and speak soon!

Wishing you much success,

WAHM Talk Radio Notes from Kelly

Julie Lenzer-Kirk is my guest and she has authored The ParentPrenuer Edge a book that compares building a business with raising a child. You'll really enjoy this interview and I have a copy of her book to give away to one of my blog readers too.

Julie is President of Path Forward International, which provides keynotes, workshops, and consulting to give entrepreneurial companies and individuals a "Boot in the Butt™" to launch new ideas, grow existing ventures, find their work/life balance, and fine-tune their leadership skills. She is a sought-after speaker on topics of entrepreneurship, business management and leadership, and balancing work and family.

For the WAHM & her Family,

This week, I thought I’d share a tidbit from my home-office with you. My high-speed internet crashed last week and as luck would have it, the parts to fix it are out of stock and on backorder. So I’m temporarily working with dial-up service… something I haven’t done in years. I realize now how spoiled I’ve been!

With this new challenge, I have to really focus on how I can best use my internet time. One task that takes a considerable amount of time each day is replying to emails. Typically, I schedule in a couple hours each morning and afternoon to handle these but now, I’ve found a new approach. I download all my email but only answer the ones that need immediate attention. The rest I answer when I’m offline and then queue them to send the next time I connect to the internet. Of course, this doesn’t only have to be done if you have dial-up. It’s a good strategy for any time.

Responding to emails can be time consuming no matter the speed of your internet connection. Our expert blogger, Aurelia Williams offers some more tips for managing your email time.

Podcasts are cropping up everywhere these days. If you’ve ever wondered how to create a podcast of your own, Kelly McCausey shares some of the programs she uses to do this.

Be sure to stop by the chat room today where you can find handmade baskets and soy candles from Down the Trodden Path.
