Before children, I didn’t think I wanted to be a Stay at Home Mom. I had a great career, made great money and got to travel. I always used to think I would be able to handle a career AND children. Then it came time to actually have children and I thought, ‘who is going to be with them all day?’. I wanted to see their first smiles, first steps, hear their first words. Then I thought, ‘If I am out of my career for several years, how hard will it be get back in?’
Can you relate? Well, thankfully I was blessed with a husband whose income could allow me to stay home at the time. So bam! I became a Stay at Home Mom. I loved being with my kids, but I’ll be honest, I did miss my career a little bit (or at least having adult conversation!). Then the economy tanked – remember that? My husband’s business was struggling and we talked about me going back to work.
I was terrified. I didn’t know and still don’t know how women are able to work full-time jobs and do everything that it requires to take care of a family. It’s amazing to me. Some of them really love what they do and I have no idea where they find the energy! I do, however, know lots of moms who work full-time, take care of their families, and wish they could quit their job.
I didn’t want go back to work full-time, so I started up a Network Marketing Business with a Health and Wellness company that I could work part-time. I really enjoyed it and built a great business. Then my husband had to work crazy hours and I couldn’t do home presentations because I needed to be home with the kids. I kept my base business, but couldn’t grow it like I wanted. So…. I started searching…. online.
I was determined to find out how to Make Money as a Stay at Home Mom in the online arena.
I searched for a long time. You find all sorts of crazy stuff when you’re trying to find out how to make money online. Most of the things I found were really hard to understand and were going to take a long time to figure out. Then I found it. When I first saw it, I’ll be honest, I thought ‘Can this really work?’. And then I thought, ‘Can I really do this? I don’t know anything about the internet!’.
I became a blogger (which means I write articles like this one and post them on a bog website) and an Internet Marketer. It sounds scary when you say it like that, but I didn’t have to learn it myself. I joined a company that provides you with a pre-configured blog and great training. I posted an article on my blog the very first day I started!! This business has changed my life. My three-year-old is literally playing with his cars right here while I’m finishing this post!
There are no special skills needed to get started. I had NO internet experience. HOWEVER, in order to make money, you do need to learn and you must be consistent. If you will spend 1-3 hours EVERY day, learning and executing what you learn, you CAN be successful!
Being a Stay At Home Mom ROCKS!
