It’s Been Two Weeks But Happy New Year!

Work life and home life has gotten the best of me and I have not been the best at keeping YOU abreast of the best information out there regarding working online. I won’t even begin to explain how busy these past four weeks have been between.

However what I can tell you is that 2019 is here and I PROMISE you that I will continue to bring the best online opportunities and more episodes of my podcast, The Teacher Ces Podcast.

I invite you to follow me on social media.

Although I am not Oprah, I will leave you with three of my favorite things that you might want to check out as well:

I spend the month of December reading Becoming. It was definitely inspirational and eye-opening.  I would love to start a book club and have a discussion about this book.

 The holiday was a good time, too good time actually. I have been drinking a lot of green tea to get everything back in order.

My old online headsets finally cracked on me. I mean literally fell apart. I am overall happy with these new headsets.


Exclusive Reading Eggs Freebie Deal

reading eggsCan I tell you guys how much I love Reading Eggs! True story, I used Reading Eggs about four years ago when I taught second and third grade in Prince George’s County, Maryland. I was very impressed with the program and my students loved it!

Now my twins are using it as well. My daughter is using it to help her progress as she is reading at an advanced level right now. My son is using it for phonemic awareness and to help him stay up to date with his high frequency words.


With my daughter I was able to have the program administer a placement test.  Take a look at her results:

Exclusively for my readers and podcast listeners, I have a special for you. Try Reading Eggs for four weeks . . . FREE. It would make an awesome gift for the holidays. Try it out and share with me how much you like it.

Building Passive

Building Passive Income with AirBnB Rental Marketplace

Getting to know about it and its simple steps

Passive income is one of the most sought strategies to meet financial flexibility. And today, AirBnb has gained popularity in the real estate investments. Many people have turned their heads toward this while wishful of being successful.

But, what is Airbnb property investment?

It is an online marketplace or platform for the host who rents out their extra space. This includes apartment, private or shared rooms, vacation rentals, and homestays. Yet, here is the catch, it is only for a short-term lodging. They give an access to the guest who is looking for affordable spaces to stay during travel.

A lucrative way to make an investment. Plus, making money of this method is even better when you can have a group investing in Airbnb property. The logic is quite simple. It will turn out to be getting a property for less capital. Yet with a higher potential of return on investment.

Keep reading and let us learn on how AirBnb works to give you a passive income.

We need to explore the website and learn how it is done. Or, you can also download their mobile app. Once we got into the site, we need to create an account that is absolutely FREE. You can choose the host option which is charged with a fee ranging from 3% to 5% per booking.

Here are 3 easy steps to get you started:

Step#1: Once you have done signing up, you are now ready to create your listing.

As a host, make sure that you will be able to communicate well to your prospective clients on what they can expect. Like, giving out a full description of the space. And this includes the most number of guests it can accommodate. Providing realistic photos together with other details are best to be included too.

Step#2: If you already have bookings, welcoming guest is the next step in line.

The good thing about the platform is the messaging system. I facilitate your way on how you can reach and communicate with your clients.

You must clean the house or room and provide the right supplies that the occupants can use.

Now, if you are not that tied up with other schedules, greeting your guest in person is recommended. But, if it would not be possible, sending them a door code. It is a clever strategy for the host to manage their time.

Step#3: The best part, getting paid! The platform is offering a secured payment system. The money won’t be dealt with by the host upfront. Since AirBnb sends the payment through Paypal, direct deposit and among others.

The host is always on the safe side too, during payment fulfillment. Why? Since guests are charged prior to their arrival. The host gets paid (net of the service charge) right after the client checks in.

For more information on the process, feel free to check AirBnb now.

Remember that it is a good way to earn a passive income. Yet, it would take a while as compared to a long-term rental of properties. AirBnb converts your investments in a shorter term.

The time, money and effort that you have pressed on. These are your keys towards your financial stability.

Again, success in these kinds of investments won’t be an overnight.

You need to know first how it works completely. Studying it is very important. Once you have mastered the mechanics of the strategy, then it would be easy to play around it. To get the best way to achieve our goal.


Like any other businesses and investments. AirBnb can give you a high potential for passive income. That is when understood and done the right way. So, education to self is of utmost importance in this journey towards success.

Never jump in if something is still vague or had remained unanswered.

Yes, we can make money off from AirBnb, yet be skillful in it. Acknowledge the possible risks and know how to counter those. Then, listen to those who have done it successfully and ask them how they were able to make it.
