Learning About The Lactivist

Looking for The Lactivist? She's retired. But you CAN still find Jen blogging. These days, she's runs A Flexible Life. Join her for life, recipes, projects and the occasional rant.

While many of the original visitors to The Lactivist blog found their way here via the article series that I've been running on Search Engine Guide, lately, I've started to notice traffic showing up from other source. That means that many of The Lactivist readers might not know that I built the Lactivist as a teaching project to show people how they can start their own business without any money out of pocket.

I've finally finished the article series and have compiled all of the articles into a free ebook that is available through the Search Engine Guide site. It's got more than a hundred pages of tips, advice and information about starting up your own online business. (did I mention that it's free?)

So why am I telling you this? Because us Lactivist types are crafty and I just know there are plenty of budding entrepreneurs out there.

Why is the book free? Because there's just not enough good, quality free stuff out there. Download it, read it, learn and enjoy. If you absolutely must toss your money somewhere, you can make a donation to the Mother's Milk Bank of Ohio.

I'll be donating the $350 that I made during the project to the milk bank and I've challenged my readers to make their own donations if they feel they've gotten good information out of the series. I'll be adding any reader donations to my own and will be taking a check down to the milk bank next month. My goal is to double the $350 that I've made so that I can take them at least $700. With $105 in donations so far, I'm starting to hope we can hit $1000.

Interested in helping out? Just click the donate now button over there on the left and make your own donation. Even a dollar helps, especially if everyone reading this gets added together.

No worries about The Lactivist though. The project may be over, but I plan to keep the business running. I've got to finance Nora's college education somehow... ;)
