What Is Project MAHMA?
Project MAHMA stands for Moms at Home Making a … Difference (and a whole lot of money!)
Project MAHMA is a coalition of Shaklee families across North America who stay at home with their kids and earn income by helping others live healthier and more independent lives.
Project MAHMA was formed as an opportunity for moms and dads to:
- Have the very best for their family’s health, well-being and financial future
- Realize their personal potential
- Make a difference in the lives of others
- Do it all AND stay home with their kids

Today is my birthday. My family has been asking me all month what I want to do for my birthday. It’s such a difficult question as I rarely think about what I want for myself. I feel so fortunate and blessed and have everything I really need. I have an awesome family, a job that I love and a part time home based business that lets me help others.
So for my birthday, I took the day off work and now that I have had my coffee and some quiet time, I’ve decided what I want for my birthday and you can help me!
Owning my own part time home based business has given me a lot of satisfaction in that it lets me be creative and make some more money for my family so we can get the “extras” we want. Plus, I get to mentor other women and help them become business owners.
Being an entrepreneur is in my blood.
Everyone in my family tree owned and operated small businesses to provide for the family. There was a 3 generation history of shoe repair stores on my mom’s side of the family. My father’s family also has a long history of businesses and my dad has owned his own businesses since I was a little girl.
I always dreamed of having my own business, but I was one of the first to graduate from college and take a career path as a salaried worker. So, having a home business in addition to my job fills that need in me to be entrepreneurial.
So, what’s my birthday wish???
I want to help other women explore their creativity and develop home based businesses both internationally and locally.
There are two ways you can participate:
1. Make a $25 loan to Kiva.org. I started giving to this organization a few years ago A $25 loan is combined with other lenders to make a small loan to the entrepreneur in an underdeveloped country. The coolest thing is they repay the loan and then you can loan your original $25 investment to someone else. I have loaned the same $25 to 5 different people!
My most recent loan is to Myra from Ecuador.
Mayra is 19 years old and single. She lives in the city of Ibarra, Ecuador, with her parents. Young, entrepreneurial, peaceful, and calm, Mayra has her own embroidery business. She creates hand-embroidered designs on t-shirts and other clothing. She is seeking this loan to purchase cloth and thread to complete her handiwork.
Mayra has been embroidering as a business for two years. In the beginning, she had help from her mother. Now she works independently. Mayra’s goals for the future are to finish building her house and to finish her studies. In the photo, Mayra is proudly demonstrating her hand-embroidered design on a souvenir Ecuador t-shirt. Ibarra is located very close to a large market town very popular with travelers and locals alike.

We believe home should be the safest place in the whole world.
Go to your cupboard right now. Pick a cleaner, any cleaner. Does it contain chlorine, phenol, ammonia, or formaldehyde? These—and more—may be toxic. Toxic as in dangerous, as in hurtful, as in not very clean at all. Home is no place for stuff like that. So start by getting rid of those troublemakers. Responsibly, of course.
What’s Under Your Sink?
What’s the big deal about toxins you ask? You’d be surprised. Find out where they are in your home and, more importantly, how to replace them.
The Chemical most frequently involved in household poisonings and a potent pollutant. May cause reproductive, endocrine and immune system disorders.

one of the most hazardous products in the home. Can contain lye, which is a strong caustic substance that causes severe corrosive damage to eyes, skin mouth, and stomach. Can be fatal if swallowed.

Or open your own online store and buy these products from your own company. We’ll teach you how. Click here to begin.

Several companies that are great for women were featured on The Early Show on CBS this morning, and a video with a recap of the segment appears on the CBS web site right now.
This segment focused on “great turnkey companies” for women, and Shaklee was listed as one of the best companies for busy women who want to get started in a business with minimal initial investment and most of the set-up work taken care of. Watch the video below if you are looking for an opportunity to work from home. There are several businesses to consider such as Usbourne Books, Mary Kay, Avon, Pampered Chef, and my favorite Shaklee. (There is a short commercial at the beginning.)
I am an independent Shaklee distributor (and have been for nearly 20 years) and if you want to own and operate your own turnkey Shaklee business, contact me for more information.
