Working as an independent contractor with Leapforce

I have been working as an independent contractor with Leapforce for over a month now. Perhaps you have heard of it and wonder if it's something you would like to try? I have to start off telling you...there's a lot I can't tell you. Tricky huh? Leapforce is certainly not the only company that will ask you for discretion in what you make available to the public. I'm not sure of the exact reasons for their disclosure rules, but don't think that because there are things that I can't talk about that the opportunity is not legitimate.

So...what is it? The best I can tell you is that it's kinda like quality control for search engines and other sites. Here's a little snippet from their page: (Links below won't work, it's a photo.)

You need to have knowledge of how the internet works, be a little computer savvy (but you don't have to be an expert), be able to learn by reading, understand that you're an independent contractor (for taxes), and be able to pass the entrance exam.

There are opportunities all over the world in many different languages. Other contractors have expressed their gratitude and love of the opportunity and I have to agree. I am grateful for it as well. Click on over if you're interested and read the requirements and FAQ. As you go, more of the information will be available to you. Good luck!

A Legitimate Job From Home. Really!

As you guys may know I've been looking for a legitimate way to work from home without starting my own business. I've had so much going on with Anna that I can't do that right now. I need to work for/with someone who can pay me. One day on facebook I saw a random article that pointed out several ways to work online. Most of them didn't pan out very well, but one did. Leapforce. Now, I'm not allowed to talk too much about it. That's part of my agreement as a vendor; but, I am allowed to tell you it's a legitimate job, and refer you if you're interested.

If you're interested in finding out more, you can go to

There you can find out the answers to a lot of your questions. Usually you will start with filling out a set of questions and seeing if you qualify to proceed. Once you do, you will find out the answers to questions like how much the pay per hour is, what type of work you'll be doing, etc. You'll know this before you take the exam(s). As you go through more and more of the process, everything will come to light. You won't be in the dark wondering. You just have to "unlock" one step before you can get to the next. 

You will need to pass an entrance exam, and it's not easy. It took me two tries. Don't be in a hurry, it usually takes a couple of weeks for the testing process. With it taking me two tries, it was three weeks.

Here are a few things to consider:

1. Can you learn by reading? My boyfriend laughed when he saw that I had to learn the information by reading. He congratulated me on my ability to do so. Smart as he is, he learns better a different way. I can tell you that LeapForce is really good at explaining what they want from you. The instructions are way more clear than another company I tested for (and failed).

2. Can you wait to get paid? Payments are made the month after your invoice is submitted. Patience and budgeting is necessary.

3. Are you skilled at the computer and do you use your smartphone with ease? Those are necessary skills for this job.

4. Are you okay being an independent contractor? You will not work "for" the company. You work for yourself and you will need to file your taxes appropriately.

I love this job so much. It's on my time. Can't work today? Then don't work today. No need to call anyone or get someone to cover for you. It's just exactly what I needed. So grateful to find it. Let me know if you sign up!

Irresistible Me Hair Accessories

Perhaps you've heard of Irresistible Me, the clip on hair extensions? (If not, you should check it out, they're really cool.) As a blogger, I'm often offered the chance to try new products for free in exchange for an honest review. When Irresistible Me offered, I honestly ignored it at first because I wasn't interested in hair extensions. Later, I thought Anna might be able to use them now that her hair is growing back. As it turns out, her hair still isn't quite long enough for clip on extensions. When that didn't work out, they offered me the chance to review an array of their beautiful hair accessories. To that, I said yes, yes, yes!

In a home with three females, we're always looking for nice hair accessories. Clips, bobby pins, bows, and barrettes are all over our house all the time. The ones that I got to choose from Irresistible Me stay in the box they arrived in until we are ready to wear them because they are really well made and I don't want to lose them. Here's what I chose:

1. Daisy Hair Barrette: This one is just very dainty and girly. It immediately made me think of prissy miss Essie. 

2. Zoey Hair Barrette: The colors on this one are more muted in person than they look online. I still love it though. 

3. Melody Bobby Pin: This is a very well constructed sturdy pin. It's not like the bobby pins you buy in a pack for a dollar at your local store. It reminds me a little bit of "Hello Kitty" stuff, so that's why I picked it. 

4. Sapphire Hair Barrette: This gorgeous barrette is a little too heavy for the girls fine hair. It will be super nice for me to wear when I can. I can just see me all dolled up with this barrette in my hair.

5. Clara Bobby Pin: This cute bow has a bow charm on it as well. A nice touch. Note that it is navy blue underneath, giving it a nice two-toned look.


6. Diana Tiara: I chose this one because Essie's birthday is coming up. I thought it would be a fun idea to make it the "Birthday Tiara" in our house. If it's your birthday, you get to wear it. The girls both love it. 

We love all of these hair accessories and find them to be really good quality. I'm sure they will be around for us to enjoy for a long time. This was a really fun review to get to do, and I thank Irresistible Me for the opportunity. 

Disclaimer: As mentioned in the article above, I received these hair accessories free in exchange for an honest review. All opinions shared are mine.
