Today I would like to share with you how I’m keeping my family healthy this winter.   Immunity Defence Supplements As...

But I’m presently in a position where I’m struggling fiercely to balance being a stay at home mom and an entrepreneur.

How to start a blog by Bayanda Gumede

According to Tony Robbins, success is 80% mindset and 20% mechanics. So basically, your success is determined by what goes on in your head. And some of those thoughts are just little white lies that are holding us back from achieving greatness. I’m talking about the kind of lies that cripple and prevent us from reaching our fullest potential. Sadly, we are responsible for telling ourselves those lies. Not our families, friends or colleagues. YOU! You are standing in your own way because you don’t believe your dreams are worthy. It has taken me many years to finally realise that I’m in...

I don’t spank my kids. And before you promptly tell me about how you were spanked as a kid and how great you turned out. Or how some kids need to be spanked to keep them in line. Please continue reading. I grew up in a home where spanking was naturally a popular form of discipline, but just because I was raised that way doesn’t mean I need to continue with that trend.

I sincerely believe I qualify as one those people that turned out okay...

5 most important investments for your growing blog

I’ve been doing this blogging thing for almost two years now and I’ve learnt a few valuable lessons along the way. One of them is the fundamental importance of investing in your craft. What you put in is precisely what you get out, it’s as simple as that. If you genuinely want to turn your blog into a business, you need to manage it like a business.

4 things I’ve stopped doing to be a better mom

4 things I’ve stopped doing to be a better mom

In the past, I’ve spoken a lot about my sincere desire to be the best mom I can be. But over time I’ve realised that I was just putting unnecessary pressure on myself. I just want to be a good mom and raise good kids. As much as I can’t control how my kids will turn out, I am in control of how I parent. Motherhood is an incredible journey.
