Need A Date?

What's in a date? Got a minute? Dates are the main ingredient in the Chocolate Date Bombs that you are going to make. I thought this chocolate covered dates recipe would be perfect to kick off this new category, Food & Body! These only take a few minutes to make.

Whether you celebrate holidays or not… any occasion is the perfect occasion for some Chocolate Date Bombs.

They taste like mini candy bars! There's nothing like melted chocolate (you don't need to use coconut oil for these).  If you would have told me that we would be eating chocolate dipped dates, I wouldn't have believed you! These gluten free treats have that chewy effect that you will love!

Here are a few benefits, nutrition facts that you should know about (sorry no formal nutritional fact sheet included):

  • A fruit full of fiber
  • Lowers cholesterol
  • Energy booster

Who doesn't like chocolate, right? You can use dark chocolate to add an extra detox to your body, or use your favorite dairy free chocolates.

Check out the recipe of how to make chocolate covered dates, also known as Chocolate Date Bombs below (No food processor necessary)…

Chocolate Date Bombs

Ingredients

  • 1 package of Mini Dairy Free Chocolate Chips or Favorite Dark Chocolate
  • 1 small jar of Almond Butter
  • 1 package Medjool dates*
  • Tooth picks
  • Parchment paper

Directions

  • Preheat crock pot or small pot on the stove on medium low
  • Rinse the medjool dates and dry with paper towel
  • Take a toothpick to ‘pierce’ the dates down the middle
  • Remove the pit (pitted dates would be easier)
  • Spoon a little bit of almond butter into each date (make sure you mix the almond butter up if the oil is at the top of the jar)
  • Use a toothpick to close up each date
  • Line a dish or cookie sheet with parchment paper
  • Pour chocolate chips into crock pot or pot on the stove*
  • Mix until chocolate is melted
  • Dip dates into the chocolate and place each on the parchment paper / wax paper lined dish or baking sheet
  • Place dates in the freezer for 15 to 20 minutes (could work in fridge also, maybe :)

Enjoy! You can store them in an air tight container, if you have some left. If your family is like ours, we don't have many leftovers!

The best gluten free, dairy free healthy snack! If there is also excess chocolate, you could use it to cover some almonds. Don't forget the shredded coconut! Yikes, prep time? not too long for these sweet treats :)

So, you may be wondering, what else you can sprinkle chocolate covered dates with.

Here are some toppings that you can roll the dates around in:

  • Coconut Flakes
  • Shredded Coconut
  • Roasted Almonds (chopped)
  • Chia Seeds
  • Ground Cinnamon
  • Hemp Seeds
  • Dark Chocolate Chunks
  • Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • Raw Cacao Chips
  • Orange Zest

Some "stuffing" variations that you can use are:

  • Peanut Butter
  • Cookie Butter
  • Your favorite nut butter or seed butter

*If you don't want to melt the chocolate over the stove, you can melt it in a microwave safe bowl.

3 Ways To Monetize Your Blog In November

Well we are almost 2 weeks into this month and I am still trying to figure out what happened to the time In this section of the blog, well category of How To Make Money Online and Money Tips,  I told you in my first post that this space would document how we are making money with this blog. Making passive income,  money online has been a focus for us for the last 5 years. Here are a few things that we have done in the past to learn how to make money online:

  • Affiliate Marketing - through blog posts and email lists affiliate links
  • Amazon affiliate links
  • Creating online courses 
  • Other digital products, like recipes, cheat sheets, step by step guides, etc
  • Mystery shopping and job boards (I still consider myself a mystery shopper)
  • Social media posting/call to actions/ads (like Facebook, Instagram)
  • Pitching companies to be affiliates or creating partnerships
  • Selling physical products, like books online
  • Online travel agent
  • Network marketing
  • Answering surveys
  • Other side hustle income streams
  • Meal Prepping/ Meal Planning tips
  • Coaching
  • Membership Community

As you can see we have created a lot of businesses/income streams. What a long list of stuff, right? 

Ok so after all of that, we are starting fresh with this blog. Of course we have just started and I finally got my Google Adsense Account approved last week! For some reason my website wasn't showing up properly, even after cleaning out my cache and everything. We are experiencing Internet upgrades in the area where we live, so that may have been the issue. A great Internet connection is a must!

At any rate we are up and running. Since my family has been marketing and making money online for the last 5 years, the way we made money was all over the place. We need consistent income for our businesses.

We want consistent Paypal and Stripe notifications. We want to make and earn more money online than we have spent. Having extra cash to fund your family dreams and to get you further to the lifestyle that you want to live, is a beautiful thing!

And guess what? I want to make it to the first page of Google! It's possible! I don't know how, but we are learning more about SEO.

Our goal is to earn our income solely online. This blog will document the training, the tips, strategies, processes, methods we will use to earn abundant passive income by 2025.

Why 2025? It’s a great goal to have…#5 representing big things can happen...and I am going to believe it.

A goal without a plan is just a wish, so we have to put a plan in place.

 

I want to share with you 3 ways that we will earn money this month. There are so many methods out there, hey we have done quite a bit, but sticking to three seems more doable. Don't you think?

  1. Affiliate Marketing - In most of the posts this month, already, there are affiliate marketing offers. These offers are not presented in a cheesy way, it's actually things that we are using to maneuver through this life...to live in time. 
  2. Book Sales - Ok so I am new to this book thing. Earlier in 2020, I and 24 other women were involved in a book collaboration. Our book hit best-seller on amazon within 24 hours! I have an ebook pdf included in my How To Live In Time Starter Packet, free just for you! Click here to get it!  Months later as we were well into the pandemic, I created The Body Love Mindset Meditation Journal, a 365 Day journal prompt, and mindful living journal. I plan to create more Pinterest pins centered around this and make sure the book information is easily accessible on this website. You can read more about the journal and purchase below. 
  3. Patreon - Whoa! So there were a lot of steps to set this up! Oh geez, I forgot to screenshot all of the steps! I will have to do a video of some sort on this later. I am going into the 3rd season of my podcast, Conversations w/ Hicunni. This Patreon was created to help support the podcast and this blog. You can check out my Patreon  https://www.patreon.com/howtoliveintime. I have also included the verbiage in detail of why Patreon...below.

Did you get all of that? So this homeschool mama will be popping in this month to keep you updated on all these things! I hope this encourages you to start your own blog and start monetizing it.

 Blogs are still a thing, so get started! Even if you don't have a virtual assistant, build right where you are. This is what we are doing.

Although, our kids are getting skills in graphic design, being a virtual assistant, WordPress, social media (Instagram and Facebook, YouTube,  etc. They are learning that blogging is more than the pretty image and quick blog posts.

It takes work. I don't know if we will ever hire someone again for Fiverr or hire someone from Upwork. We are a homeschool family, who are creating online businesses to leave a legacy for generations to come. At this point, we are teaching our kids the skills. 

Maybe later on we can expand to Upwork, Fiverr, or even hire a more skilled virtual assistant. Until then we have experts and Pinterest enthusiasts (we love Pinterest) in-house. We are using that extra money to pay our kids to earn extra cash part-time. Um yes, they do charge for their services.

So this has been a very lengthy email full of a lot of details. I am usually a very detailed person anyway, but we wanted to make sure you understand that you can start making money online in your spare time. 

There are so many brands that you can create but from experience, it's great to narrow your focus just a little bit. If you google brands or niches that you are interested in / YouTube Channels, you will be sure to find some ideas on how to make some extra money, creating the online business that you want. Even looking on Craigslist or a local retailer may give you a few ideas to get you started part-time.

My husband loves the term digital marketing. Affiiate Marketing, Online Marketing, Content Marketing, etc it's all included. Digital marketing is here to stay and will continue to soar, and I want to hear more about yours gigs soon! We have a lot to learn, it doesn't stop here.

We are learning to spend our time more wisely. My husband loves to market on Facebook, but I actually took a break from Facebook and Instagram. I am starting to get used to not being on those platforms. I will share more details about that later.

If you need anything or have questions, please feel free to leave me a comment.

3 Keys To Homeschool Permanently

On my podcast a few months ago, I talked about 3 keys to homeschool your children permanently. I have been podcasting here, for almost a year now. 

The dynamics have changed a lot due to the state of this world right now. Many have been forced to homeschool these days. I've been homeschooling by choice for over a decade now.

My mindset back in the day

In the past, when I envisioned a homeschool mom, she wore a long dress and a bun. Crazy right? But I never saw this way of life coming my way. (minus what I envisioned)

I have an accounting and management background, really focused on number crunching and a stickler for structure. So to be a stay at home mom, let alone a homeschool mom, this was something that was just never on my radar. I did always wanted to get married and have children, but I just thought like everyone  else you, find a daycare to send your kids to while you go to work. 

How did we start...

It was my husband's idea first, but we quickly got the sign to move forward. We went from a two income home to a one income home within 2 weeks. No major prepping or  extra money saved to do it. I don’t think you can plan perfectly for this, but looking back some extra money would have been nice! He did get a part-time job and at one point he worked the equivalent of 2 full-time jobs, just to make sure we had what we needed.

This would have flowed better if we were not over spending and had massive amounts of debt. Lessons to learn….make sure you are on a budget and if you have some debt, you need a plan to pay it off. It took a while be we learned...the hard way! 

I want to share 3 keys To Homeschool Your Children Permanently

  1. Make sure you have support for your homeschooling journey - Please come to an agreement with your spouse. You want to  make sure you both are on the same page. You want it to be a smooth transition and things to flow smoothly.
  2. Make sure you are homeschooling legally -Make sure you're operating according to your state guidelines. Most states require documentation to withdraw our children from public school. Every state has different guidelines, so make sure that you' do your homework.
  3. Involve your kids in the decision making - Allow your children to add value based on how they learn. Some children are more auditory learners, visual, or kinesthetic learners. What do they like to do? Do they like superheroes? What about Harry Potter? You could create book reports and different projects centered around their interests. There are a plethora of ways of providing your child with  a great home education. 

Overall as home educators, you want to provide a great foundation in order for them to succeed and thrive.

So, I would love to hear your thoughts. Leave me a comment. And also, below I have a few resources to help you get started with homeschooling.

Homeschool Resources

As an Amazon Associate and Affiliate For Multiple Companies, I earn from qualifying purchases.

The #1 Resource That Never Expires

We are welcoming a new month and there’s always so much to do. This post is one of my mindful musings (blog posts)  shared under the Timeless Treasures category. Timeless Treasures are things that I love that don’t have an expiration date. These items, ideas, concepts don’t grow old or wither away. Just like your soul continues to live, these treasures will continue to live on as well.

If you found the front page of this website, you will see what most call a freebie or optin. It’s an incentive or call to action to connect with visitors on a more personal level. For those who want to really stay connected, there will be an opportunity to do so later. (Look for an update soon).

Back to the optin 

How many times have you opted into something that sounded great but ended up being fluff? How many times have you received the ‘freebie’ but never used it? Oh my goodness, I can’t tell you how many times, I was left with regret for giving someone my email address. It’s that shiny object syndrome. We get all excited about seeing the free stuff and thinking we need to add just one more pdf...to make the difference. If you just have one more ebook, you will have the golden ticket to get the job done.  I had to think long and hard of what I wanted to have as the optin for this website.

So what do you need?

You need something you can use not just once but reference it over and over again. Everyone wants to learn how to make more money, how to live a lifestyle where they can homeschool, or travel whenever they want. However, no one ever really talks about what people have to go through to get there, or the tools you need that will sustain you as you are creating that life you want.

 

How do you maneuver through the day and still feel like you are getting things checked off of your list? How do you keep your sanity and keep it all together? Guess what? You will never have enough time. 

Well, my optin is my How To Live In Time Starter Packet. This packet will help you make the most of the time that you have... and create the life that you want. 

There are 3 main items included in this packet:

  1. Joy Recipes for Abundance ebook
  2. Mindset Hacks Checklist - pdf
  3. The Body Love Mindset Guided Meditation - audio

Let’s talk about each one.

  1. Joy Recipes for Abundance became an Amazon International  Bestseller in less than 24 hours in several categories. The organizer, brought myself plus 24 other entrepreneurial women together to coauthor this book. We share our recipes for joy and abundance through tales of overcoming, determination, and gratitude. This is an up close and personal view of how we are showing up on this online space and what it took to get here. Oh, if you want the paperback, you can purchase it here.
  2. Mindset Hacks Checklist is really a gift of self-love. These are simple intentional  to-do's that can be incorporated easily into your morning routine or evening downtime. You owe it to yourself, self-love is the greatest self-care.
  3. The Body Love Mindset Guided Meditation is my signature meditation. This guided meditation helps to release self doubt, lowers stress, and gives you the confidence you need to focus, be more productive, and transform your beliefs about your body. Start rotating this in your morning routine and/or evening routine. Make note of any changes and the entire experience in your journal. Need a meditation journal? You can purchase my new journal here

    To Recap

    This packet was created to help you:

    • Learn how to enjoy the moments that you have. 
    • Learn how to find the treasures of life in your day-to-day activities.
    • Learn how to set yourself up for abundance instead of lack and limitations.

3 Resources To Experience Joy Now

It’s been an interesting journey, but learning how to be present and focus on what is right in front of me, has made all of the difference. I want to share with you 3 Resources That Will Help You Experience Joy Right Now. These 3 resources will give you the focus and the confidence you need to be the best version of yourself.

  1. The Power Of Now by Eckert Tolle - this book is a must read. Often times we can ge caught up in all the things that we didn't get done or the list of failures in our lives. What if you could find joy in the mist of what you are going through right now? This book is one of the resources that helped me rekindle that joy inside of me.
  2. The Mastery of Love by Don Miguel Ruiz. I can’t believe I didn’t hear about this book sooner. I purchased it because it was cheaper to purchase the 3 book set. This book sat on my bookshelf, for almost 2 years before I decided to read it. This book is definitely needed for healing your heart and restoring that heart chakra.
  3. Meditation. This resources is priceless. There are so many books, blogs, podcast episodes, youtube videos, etc that I have gleaned from. While living in Kigali Rwanda I decided to read,  Stress Less Accomplish More by Emily Fletcher…. It's a great read for business people who want to learn how to meditate, and how to make it a lifestyle. 

These are my top 3 Resources That Will Help You Experience Joy Right Now.

What are your thoughts? Have you used any of these resources? Let’s talk about it.
