I have been a stay at home mom for seven years and I have also been blogging for five years. When people would ask me where I work at I would always say I am a stay at home mom. This year my youngest started Kindergarten and I really struggled and still kind of struggle with what I want to do now that both if my kids are in school most of the day.
I never really considered blogging a job, I have not made a lot of money blogging, but I also haven’t put it a ton of effort trying to make money on my blog. I started blogging because I wanted to share with people how they can save their family money, not really thinking about making money off of my blog.
Just recently when people asked me what I do for a living I started saying I work from home as a blogger. Until I read Money Making Mom by Crystal Paine I never thought of blogging as a job. It helped me realize that I need to put more work into my blog and start making money from blogging. Blogging is something I really enjoy and love to help people save money.

Let me tell you a little bit about this great inspirational book. There are so many great quotes. Here are a couple of my favorites:
Live simply so that others can simply live
Whatever you do show up and give it your all the rest will follow
Don’t give up; persistence always pays off
Express gratitude, it changes the whole outlook on life and your business
May your life be a force that channels change in this world
Money Making Mom is full of inspirational stories of woman of how woman used their passion to create jobs/careers. All of the stories are so inspirational and will help you realize that you can do anything you put your mind to and to do what you love.
You can’t do everything at once, the best way to avoid getting burned out or stuck is stick with one action item. When you are comfortable with your pace and progress then continue to the next step. Crystal also lists out building blocks for an action plan.
There is also ideas on how make money from home such as Virtual Assistant, surveys, mystery shopping and more. Never be afraid to try something new, remember amateurs built the ark; professionals built the Titanic.
Say to yourself- I am enough, I was created for a purpose.
There is also a chapter about giving, and she gives several ides on how you can do that. Such as supporting a local charity, donate food to your local food pantry and donate food or toiletries to a homeless shelter.
