This is a video I made about our family's journey with Cancer.

Please watch and share this ~ and make a positive difference in someones life.

Are you ready to break free of the cubicle? Ready to live and work on your own terms? You've come to the right place. In 2000, I made the decision to break free of the 9-5. My laptop lifestyle has led me to Europe, the Caribbean, Canada, and all over the United States. I've worked abroad, ...

An inexpensive and high-value investment if you are looking for online teaching jobs!
 
What's different about our job leads? We do not use the big job boards. We have a team member who spends days looking at employment sites of schools not advertising on the big job boards so when you get a lead, thousands of others do not. That is why so many have success with our leads! About 37 cents a day.

If you want custom searches and extra leads, we have that too. You get the leads, PLUS customized leads! http://www.thebabbgroup.com/store/custom-job-search.html 

Come check out what we offer if you aren't having good luck on the big job boards :)

You may have a book published or a service you offer, but you want to make your business more profitable and more automated. 

I was in the same boat! In January 2014, I decided to take action and create digital products that accented my coaching and teaching work. It's great providing a product that customers want and you can offer on autopilot after creating once.

THIS Thursday, I'm offering a free live online training. Join me to learn how to create quick digital products to grow your list and passive income based on your expertise and what your fans want. 

Register here: http://bit.ly/webinarpi

I will be sending out a worksheet PRIOR to the webinar via email to help you gain as much as possible out of the experience. See you there!

I am so honored to have been featured on +Ristaino Photography's blog discussing my brand, Laptop Lifestyle. +Michaela Ristaino is a great friend and is an incredible artist with photography. Enjoy!
 
Join me in welcoming my dear friend and Laptop Lifestyle guru Tara Ross to the blog today! Tara and I met 10 years ago when she and her husband Stan were paired up with myself and Cap’n Tony at the dinner table on our honeymoon cruise. Who could have known that 10 years later, we’d move to Sarasota and get to play with them all the time!? I cannot thank her enough for her friendship and when she asked me to help her with headshots for her business, I was honored. 

Tara is one spunky entrepreneur and I was thrilled to have her share with us the inspiration behind her brand “Laptop Lifestyle”. She is a best selling author and I’m excited to have her introduce to you her newest endeavor. 

Read on to find out what that is and how you can jump on board for a free 7 day email course starting June 29th.

Great info!
 
5 Steps to Getting More Engagement with Your Visual Content
There’s no denying the power of visual content. From Facebook to Twitter, Pinterest and Google Plus – visual marketing has taken the online world by storm.

And it’s no surprise. In a recent +HubSpot survey, 65% of respondents admitted to being visual learners.

Add that data to a study by Wyzowl where respondents said they remember 80% of what they see, but only 20% of what they read, and it becomes clear that visual marketing is critical to keeping you:

- Top of mind
- Relevant, and
- Memorable

Want to know where to begin? Take a look at this detailed Infographic how you can create visual content that drives more engagement, shares and traffic to your website or blog!

Introduction
I am an author of the Daily Actions books on Amazon, a best selling series on social media, social networking, and productivity. To see my author page on Amazon, go to http://edjourneys.com/tararossbooks. I write about location independence and living a laptop lifestyle on my travel blog, edjourneys.com. I am a photographer by hobby rather than by trade, and I am a wife and a mom.

I am a former college administrator and current college professor. I have taught Political Science courses since 1999, in both face to face and online delivery formats. I am experienced in accreditation, development of new programs, and instructional design. With my PhD in Educational Leadership and my MA in International Affairs, my academic goals include continued work as a professor, work in international education, and pursuing my research interests in forced migration and refugee resettlement.
