A Party to Celebrate the Entrepreneural Spirit {And a Giveaway}

Do you have a product idea?  What about a budding entrepreneur in your home?

When I first learned of AON Invent, I was impressed with their code of ethics. In a market that’s defined by people ready to rip off someone who is passionate about their idea, AON Invent is one of the good guys.

Turn on your TV and you’ll undoubtedly see commercials for companies willing to hear your idea and take your money. AON Invent promises to give honest feedback; and if they don’t feel your product or idea will suit the market, they’ll give you direction on how to make it work!

Headed up by experienced, talented folks, AON Invent has the ability to take your product from napkin sketch to market.

There is nothing that you wouldn’t do to help your child get ahead in today’s competitive world. You are providing the education that will help them solve problems, make good choices and hopefully someday make a good living.

This Saturday, August 23, from 12:00 to 1:00pm CDT, we are hosting a live Facebook party with a team of product development experts from AON Invent and Zum Toyz.

This is your chance to hear the secrets to capitalizing on your and/or your young person’s next great idea and win some great prizes. AON Invent is the inventor’s best friend, with connections among major retailers, such as Wal-Mart, Target, Home Shopping Network, and more. Centrally located in the US, they are surrounded by hundreds of companies that are looking for the next hot product idea. Just a few miles away from the Wal-Mart corporate office, AON Invent is uniquely positioned to help get your idea to market.

Visit AON Invent and have your questions ready this coming Saturday. It’s going to be a lot of fun!

Do you have a question about the process or how AON Invent can help you? Contact them directly.

Have a question for this Saturday’s Q&A? Email them to me at, and they’ll be shared this Saturday morning!

To help celebrate, AON Invent is joining with Zum Toys to offer TWO winners their choice of a Zum Toyz product!

Due to shipping and customs regulations, this giveaway is open to our US friends only, but folks everywhere may join in and will benefit from the Q&A this Saturday.

The pictures below are just a sampling of their selection:





Todd is the owner of Zum Toyz! He wanted to show how durable his product is! Winner gets their choice of any item in this photo!

“Our Days” {in pictures} Homeschool Link-Up


While we’re still on break, we were able to capture a few images this week. :)

My daughter’s copy of My Student Log Book arrived this week!! A full review of this item is coming up in a few weeks and so far it looks fantastic! It’s designed for grades 2 and up. Since my older two children are using their own planners this year, she was excited to get one, too. She even got to choose her own cover. I can’t wait to share all the details.

We’ve tried some fabulous new recipes lately, all from Build a Menu (which is currently having a back-to-school special! Use code 3for15 to get a 3 month subscription for $15.) Read more about them and pick up a fabulous Gluten Free Oatmeal Breakfast Cookie recipe.

Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

We also made a Cinnamon Apple Quinoa Breakfast and a fantastic Black Bean and Cheese Quesadilla that my children loved! My daughter said they were the best she’s ever had. She also made them by herself, which shows you how simple and easy Build a Menu is to use. I’ll aim to share one of these recipes next week!

And of course, there’s the why we don’t have pictures of actual school work this week! Because we’re moving!!! We hope to be in our home within the next couple of weeks. A move right about when the school year begins! This should be interesting. To help with the purging process, I gave my children trash bags and a timer! Each person who picked up 20 pieces of trash, broken toys, ripped books, etc. within 2 minutes or so (we varied the times), earned points towards an afternoon treat! It worked!


So that pretty much sums up our week around here. How was yours?

Welcome to this week’s “Our Days” link-up:

“Our Days” Homeschool link-up is a place to share our weekly projects and show our curriculum-of-choice in action.

Since we school year round, this will be a weekly link-up until further notice. :)

See y’all next week!
