I once said to someone, “I just do better when I work for myself.” They kind of giggled. Being a Millennial speaking to a Baby Boomer, I could guess the kind of conclusions that were jumped to. No, I don’t think I’m too good for a boss. I don’t think I’m just so special that I know more than everyone else. I mean, when I’m being my own boss I bust my ass to be better. Working for myself makes me work harder. Setting my own personal goals makes me want to reach them. In a work setting, I tended to put my best self on the back burner and just surrender to whatever the boss said. Being my own boss was exhilarating and I made so much more money! The thing is, I don’t know if I would have discovered my capabilities if I wasn’t forced to find a work from home job as a stay at home mom. Here is the rundown of how I created not one, but two money-making incomes while being my own boss as a stay at home mom. (No MLMs involved.)
Word of the Year is a totally new concept to me. Sure, like a decade ago I would pretend to set a resolution knowing I wouldn’t stick to it. It seemed like the second I set a resolution or insisted on living up to a big goal was the same second I totally started panicking. Wayne Dyer once said this about quitting alcohol for 20 years, “If I’d have said to myself 20 years ago, ‘Wayne, you’re going to quit drinking for the next 20 years.’ I would have gone immediately and had a drink. Because it’s just. too. big.” –Man, I gotta start listening to that guy again.
Anywho, I haven’t set an actual resolution for myself in years. But this year, on New Years Eve I decided to pick a Word of the Year. The word I chose was “fear” and I want to share with you a little bit about why.
It is insane just how many people are able to work from home these days. In a recent survey, it was said that around 43% of people have been able to at least do some of their work from home! This is huge! Obviously technology has played a huge role in making the work from home job more and more of a reality for people. Working a corporate job that allows you to occasionally work from home is a huge perk, but what if you don’t feel like you fit into the corporate world? There are so many things that stand in the way of people finding a work from home job that they qualify for. What a lot of people don’t know is that there are many work from home jobs available with little to no experience and you’re probably not going to see them advertised online! So let’s talk about how you can create your own legitimate work from home job with little to no experience.
Are you a big shopper? One of the people who take advantage of in-store discounts and doubles down on coupons?

This is a job that I dream about because not only does it sound like fun, but it also stands to be highly profitable.

I am a sucker for a good, not Cinderella story. A story where a woman rises up kicks some booty and doesn’t wait for Prince Charming to slip her into a life of comfort. Women who are intelligent, strong and unwilling to settle. Thankfully, we have a world filled with women like this. As a stay at home mom of (oh my gosh) almost a decade, I have a strong desire to use my passions and talents to help my family have the best life possible. I don’t mean buying my kids all the coolest clothes. The kind of life I’m talking about is one of purpose, without financial stress. That’s why I’m talking today about 5 women whose simple side hustles helped retire their husbands. Not only that, they provided financial freedom for their families. Hint: they’re not all bloggers…I promise.
