Some Platforms to Sell Online -

I have been trying to make money online as long as I can remember. Since my time in university from selling my used textbooks to cleaning for students after school. The first time I made money blogging was in 201. Someone ask me to post a flag on my blog, he sent $25 to my Paypal. I was so excited. I couldn't believe I got paid to post a picture of a flag.
I have been on and offline since then, I stopped blogging and focused on my online shop where I sold African clothing and Accessories on etsy.


I now sell my products on a few platforms and I want to share my three (3) favorites with you.

Etsy.I love love etsy so much. I made so much sales with my shop, it was unbelievable. I didn't have to worry about advertising or marketing. Etsy is a platform that has its own buyers. People come there to find cool things to buy. If they like what you have, they will buy for sure. Etsy charges a listing fee of $0.20 to list every item and then when you sell, they charge you a transaction fe…

Shopify battles the scammers behind fake web stores

By Gerrit De Vynck

Every day, startups all over the world set up websites in the hopes of becoming a runaway success like Casper or Warby Parker.
Many of them turn to Shopify, a Canadian company that makes it a snap to open a web store. Shopify charges a mere $30 a month to maintain the site and can help with shipping, payments, even inventory. More than 600,000 merchants have signed on, and most have no complaints.

Then there are people like Mike Lindell. He runs My Pillow, which makes pillows, sheets and mattresses.
Earlier this year, Lindell noticed that an unidentified scammer had used Shopify tools to set up a near facsimile of mypillow.com called mypillowstore.com, which claimed to sell My Pillow products. In April, My Pillow sued Shopify alleging it supported trademark infringement. Shopify took down the site, but My Pillow is demanding damages plus any money Shopify made running the bogus store.

For startup founders who are also moms, it’s a balancing act!

Source:  The Wall Street Journal by Yoree Koh

Diane Loviglio, co-founder and chief executive of Boon and Gable, a personal stylist startup in San Francisco, makes the same six-egg breakfast omelet for her family every day—a routine that eliminates one decision from her packed schedule and saves her a few precious minutes.
Such small tricks help Ms. Loviglio manage the dueling rigors of being a mother to a four-year-old and building a new company. Launching a new business can be all-consuming for any entrepreneur, but the challenges are often magnified for women starting a company and a family around the same time.


Many women founders say the reality is that tending to two babies—those they are raising at home and the new businesses they are nurturing—requires sacrifices, creative strategies and almost always, a strong support system.
“I think it’s the hardest thing to do,” Xuezhao Lan said of being a mom and founder at once. “You have to be on all the time and your busi…

PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi is stepping down after 12 Years as CEO

Source: The Associated Press

Longtime PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi will step down as the top executive at the world's second-largest food and beverage company.
Nooyi, who was born in India, is a rarity on Wall Street as a woman and a minority leading a Fortune 100 company. She oversaw PepsiCo during a turbulent time in the industry that has forced food giants including Coca-Cola Co., Campbell Soup Co. and Oreo maker Mondelez International Inc. to adapt to changing tastes. All of those companies changed CEOs in the last year.

At PepsiCo, Nooyi stressed the company's move toward "good for you" options, such as Baked Lay's potato chips and Naked juices made of fruits and vegetables.
Nooyi, 62, has been with PepsiCo Inc. for 24 years and held the top job for 12.

Ramon Laguarta, who has been with the company for more than two decades, will take over as CEO in October, the company said Monday. Nooyi will remain as chairman until early next year.
