For a Healthy U

What do you need?

You are the key to your homeschool's success!

Healthy U is about how important you should already know this but it is worth repeating!

I'm going to talk to you straight, blunt and to the point:
  • You, are the center of your homeschool. 
  • You, make the decisions-curriculum, vacation, field trips, etc.
  • You, run the school. 
  • It is imperative that you take care of you.
Your health is important.

When you don't feel good, that will carry over into your child's education.  Your child's education is important to you, right? So you need to stay healthy!

I understand that the available information on health issues is overwhelming and confusing. No Excuse!

Together, we can weed through the hype and find what we need to be healthy, wealthy and wise.

There are two kinds of wealth. One you find in your family, your faith and in your friends. The other is about money.

The first type of wealth starts and ends with you. When you make the effort to heal the wounds, encourage those you know, be there for others, listen etc...those things come back to you. Love and be loved. Believe and respect all you meet and you will have the wealth of life.

The second type of wealth involves working. But for this wealth to truly be considered optimal-the work must be combined with passion, interests, hopes, dreams, talents and gifts. When you do that the work is more like play. Is it possible to combine passion and interests with work and still make money? Yes!

Basically, this is what you have to do:
  1. Start online-hone skills,develop a plan,find out what works
  2. Find a Niche
  3. Build a website
  4. Build content not a sales pitch
  5. Make money
  6. Send traffic to your site
