Should I Put Hubby on the Payroll?

Since taking a step back from healthcare management 2 years ago to become a SAHM/WAHM, I've often imagined how difficult it must be for my husband to accept the loss of an extremely lucrative income and watch me blindly fumble my way through establishing my own business (in a totally unrelated area I might add!). I know he realizes the benefits of having me home with our 4 munchkins, but there are definitely those days when the extra income would be more than "just nice" to have around.

Fast forward to a special treat, he was able to pull away from work to swing home for a quick lunch. When he arrived, he off-handedly asked how many different soaps I had fully cured and ready for sale. He then proceeded to ask if he could take a sample of each to work...apparently at some point in the morning the subject of my boutique came up with one of his employees and he showed her and a few others my site. About 30 min. later he called me with an "order" for some more soap and gave me a deadline (how cute is that?). All in all, he managed to sell 12 bars and a lip balm in the space of an hour or so! Beside feeling incredibly grateful for his support of me and my products, I'm now thinking of putting my Sweetie on the payroll...what do you think?


  1. yes! he deserves it :) What a wonderful, supportive man (and how cute that he is so proud of you!)

  2. That is cute! Tell him to keep up the good work! lol

  4. Just wanted to tell you that I LOVE the Lip Smoother!!!! I am addicted to it already!!! YUMMY!!! The Citrus Mint is great... do you plan on making other flavors? I am also enjoying the soaps (Speckled Mint and Autumn Harvest)! Lotions anytime soon???

  5. Barb,
    I'm so glad that you like them! I just made a batch of Candy Cane Kisses lip balm (peppermint) and just sold out of my Sweet Honey (so I'll be making more soon!). I'm also playing with a couple of other flavors :) Not sure on the lotions yet, but I do have a couple of body butters and whips that I'll be adding to the boutique in the next week or so :)
