Alright, so some may know about this gem of information, some may not. The truth is, this has changed my life.
As a Work at Home Professional Mom – I am constantly on the lookout for time-saving helpful hints, tips and solutions to my already hectic schedule. For those that don't know, my Mom-trepreneur resume includes 5 children (under the age of 9), home and personal obligations, church commitments, my own home businesses, and this website. That doesn't leave much time for cleaning the old homestead. That's where this week's tip comes in Handy.
Write this down:
Get ready to get dressed down to your shoes and shine that sink. Trust me, your life will never be the same. Your home, and your business will thank you.

Find a support system!
There are networking groups out there such as MySpace, Facebook, and Friendster just to name a few - which have many open doors for social networking – to help you find other like-minded individuals such as yourself with similar goals and ideas for their businesses. WAHPM is on MySpace at www.myspace.com/wahpm

My tip of the week is for those of you who have to send very large files via email to your clients, or even to your vendors – but email isn’t always a valid choice. Some email programs, for instance, will cap you at a 5 MB limit on file sizes…I don’t know about you, but I can easily send files much larger than that.
The following websites allow you to send files – and receive files – for free. It’s no joke, and it actually works. I used sendthisfile.com today to send a 34 MB audio file to a colleague.
The way it works is you upload the files to their server, and then the website will send an email to the recipient letting them know the file is available for them to download. The only caveat is however, that you have to pick up the file in a certain amount of time, or the link will expire – after all, the site needs to keep space clear on their servers for other file transfers.
The three sites I have found most useful for this are:
also, I have heard that googledocs (http://docs.google.com) does something similar, although I have not tried them out personally.
