That’s why in the past few years entrepreneurs have been speaking to the importance of having multiple streams of income. Having multiple streams of income can change your life by offering you the one thing everyone craves, freedom.
Freedom to buy what you need and what you want. The freedom to take a vacation to recharge your batteries so that you can evade the ever present concern of burnout.

If you know me, you know that I have been vegan for a while now. But I still love all the foods that usually require dairy. That’s when I started my journey looking for the best recipes and substitutions for the foods we all love.
I came across this recipe for vegan biscuits and immediately wanted to get in the kitchen and try it out myself! They did not fail me! These were some of the best biscuits I’ve ever had. And they were 100% vegan! But the best part was how easy it was. I used no more than 6 ingredients, many of which I already had in my pantry.
If you’re committed to the vegan life or just dipping your toes in, here’s a recipe I use to make delicious and classic biscuits!
Here are the ingredients you’ll need:
2 cups of all purpose flour
½ cup and 2 tablespoons of almond milk (unsweetened)

Now let’s move on to the benefits.

Moving on to the second benefit of working from home, commute time! By working from home you are also spending...
Starting something new is always nerve-wracking. We are all afraid to mess up or look like fools in front of other people. Most of the time we get into our heads and think “ what if it doesn’t work “ … well what if it does. This can apply to anything! We have all been afraid of doing something we have not done before. Whether it is driving a car, starting a new gym routine, or moving into a new city. All of these things seem intimidating until we do them.
Starting something new is all about mindset, shifting your mindset from “ I can’t “ to “ I can “ can create the drive you need to accomplish your goals. Building your own virtual assistant business can be intimidating, but it does not have to be. Many of us think we do not have the skill sets to succeed in this field but that is not true at all. Virtual assisting is all about transferring skills we’ve held in previous roles and packaging them for our clients....
