I didn’t author this article, but I can vouch for all the companies she lists – PLEASE check them out if you want to work from home. There are a few “free to start” companies and some have low-cost kits. That said, the author also lists more direct selling companies that have higher-cost kits – it’s up to you.
I’m about to open a “Kitsy Lane” boutique of my own, and there’s no startup cost. And yes, I’ve thoroughly researched it, and it’s free to start!!!!!!! Check out their business model and you’ll see how it’s possible.
From my store:
One state I’ve regretfully never been to is Louisiana, but I love New Orleans’ dark roasted “Café du Monde” coffee.
Oddly enough, I started drinking it my senior year of high school. I live in the South, so maybe it’s just easier to find here, but I’m hoping my recommendation is heeded and enjoyed. I’ve even found the original coffee variety in an Asian grocery store!
What you need to know is that chicory root is added to this coffee, giving this variety a very unique taste – almost like chocolate. Chicory is the root of the endive plant (lettuce family). Apparently the French, during their civil war, found a clever way to enhance their coffee by taste and necessity, since coffee was more scarce at the time. The recipe was brought to America via the French Acadians (known as “Cajuns”) from Nova Scotia, Canada to New Orleans.
Typically, this Café du Monde coffee is served “au lait”, with the proportion of 1:1, or equal parts coffee and hot/steamed milk. The reason for the au lait is due to the bitterness of the chicory coffee, but you’ll just have to try it. I’ve introduced a few people who were non-coffee drinkers, and they’re converts now.
There is an actual Café du Monde restaurant in New Orleans’ French Market (Choctaw Indian territory), and they’re famous for this coffee and the French pastry, the beignet (pronounced ben-YAY’). They were established in 1862, and are open 24/7!
This Tuesday, March 4th is “Fat Tuesday”, or MARDI GRAS – if you’re down in the French Quarter, go get you some!!
‘Tis the season to start getting out there in the fields and gardens…
Dear reader, I see that you stopped in – THANK YOU!
I’m very thankful for everyone who tunes into what I have to say and display to the world. I try my best to have interesting Zazzle products and to post fascinating articles for your enjoyment. I’ve always loved current events and pop culture, so I hope you’ve had fun and learned something new from my blog.
I’m also trying to change careers – and for me, that’s led me to change focus a bit. I’m exploring photography more, so expect some more photos. I’m working on obtaining a DSLR camera to highlight what I believe is a burgeoning career in that field. However, that’s a longer-term project. In the short-term, I’m trying my hand, literally, at blogging to create an online portfolio to showcase my writing skills.
As of this writing, I don’t yet have 100 bloggers, and I see that many people I follow have thousands – I aspire to have that kind of audience! I’m learning from all of you every day.
Many of you are fellow Zazzlers, many are full-time bloggers, and many are WordPress supporters. You’ve been with me, clicking on and “liking” my posts, which is extremely helpful to me in so many ways. You are helping someone personally and professionally, and I sincerely appreciate it.
Again, thank you for your kindness in helping a fellow blogger out 🙂

Dearest readers and followers,
I’m not trying to be aggravating, I swear, but I don’t understand how you make money from blogging. Can one make money from having a WordPress blog? How do you guys get to “live the life you want”, get to travel, have a life, etc.? I have none of those things. Quite frankly, I’m single, job-hunting, relocating/moving, mostly-broke, and am looking for a fun way to make money on the side. I have 2 revenue streams at the moment (full-time job that went part-time + Zazzle store), but I could always make room for more as long as it’s not going to violate my privacy or go against my work ethic. Ultimately, I have to get a full-time job, but I tend to be a workaholic and even with a full-time job I can find time to write…something I love to do.
I see many of you have links to videos that show me how, but I’m asking if someone will cut-to-the-chase and just tell me. I can’t afford to spend money to make money at this point, so I’m hoping it’s not a multi-level marketing thing. I’m listening…
Will you please help a Cousin out?
