My life has changed significantly since I started blogging two years ago. I never dreamed that I could actually turn my passion for running into something to generate a little extra income for my family. Okay, so maybe the money doesn’t actually go to my family but it does help support my running habit. A girl’s gotta have shoes, right? Anyway, when I started this blog, my main goal was to share my passion for fitness and nutrition with others. Because I was never athletic as a child, becoming an ultramarathoning, clean eating, fitness fanatic was quite a shock to me too. But I am proof that even the kid picked last for the team could grow up and be fit and healthy as an adult. That’s why my website is named Everyday Fitness and Nutrition….I’m just an everyday person, not a super gifted athlete and I believe that we can all fit fitness and nutrition into our lives.
What I didn’t realize about blogging was how much work it is. Don’t get me wrong….I love every bit of it! But it’s a lot of work! It wasn’t just a matter of sitting down at the computer and typing out a masterpiece that everyone would be eagerly awaiting. There was the writing, editing, promoting, commenting on other blogs, building relationships, answering email, and I could go on and on. As the blog grew, I found myself behind the keyboard less and less. I was also leading clean eating challenges and working directly with readers that needed help getting their fitness and nutrition on track. I came to realize at that point that my little blog was no longer a hobby but a business and I needed a business phone to keep business things business. I debated an additional phone for a while. Like most of us, I have my personal cell phone with me almost all the time. With two daughters, I always want them to be able to reach me, day or night. But I need to be able to shut my business phone off when I am done working each day. As I began to toss around the thought of a new phone, I started looking at the different options available. Because I don’t know where this little business journey will take me, I’m hesitant to sign a contract and commit to a monthly fee.
When I was in Walmart browsing the electronics department, I noticed a mobile phone display that advertised no contracts. I’ve heard of prepaid phones but had previously thought they were expensive since you weren’t committing to a regular monthly plan and just basic phones used for calling.
Introducing Simply Prepaid™ from T-Mobile! For just $40 dollars a month get 4G LTE data with unlimited talk and text.
Hmmm…..$40 a month sounds like a pretty good deal to me. But I’ve heard lots of complaints about prepaid plans. You know….things like slow data, spotty coverage, or some kind of cheesy phone that you’d be embarrassed to let anyone see. All valid concerns for me, especially considering I want to use it as a business line. I really can’t settle for second-rate prepaid when my professional reputation is on the line. With Simply Prepaid™, you get 4G LTE on T-Mobile’s nationwide network. Simply Prepaid™ includes Unlimited talk, text, and data with your choice of a high-speed data amount (max speed of 8MBps) starting at only $40/month. With no overages, credit check, or annual service contract required, Simply Prepaid™ is the ideal solution for my business needs. For families, Simply Prepaid™ is a great way to always stay in touch with each other without having an expensive monthly contract.
When I saw the selection of phones available, I realized that I was wrong about prepaid. This was the ideal solution for me. I decided to go with the Galaxy Avant phone. Not only was it affordable, it has a 5 MP camera and a 4.5″ qHD touchscreen. Pretty fancy, huh? I also picked up a couple of $40 prepaid cards so I am good to go for a while. I love having all of the features and benefits of a contract but with no commitment. Now I’ve got a business line to communicate with my clients and a mobile office so I’m always available. Simply Prepaid™ is changing everything about wireless…and now it’s time to change prepaid.
