YOU want to work at home…
…but you feel trapped in your brick and mortar job that strangles your time, energy and budget with commuting, work clothes expenses, maybe daycare expenses too. It’s exhausting and most days you feel defeated. Or – you can’t bear to leave your children with someone else each day – so you choose to stay home — but your family budget is being really stretched and your stress level is maxing out.
I understand. That was me back in 2002. I was working in the field of my college degree. I thought I had the “appropriate” job for me and moving down my “appropriate” career path — but life happened. The company closed it’s doors. I was out of work with a 2 year old and 7 year old. My husband’s job was great – but not enough to make ends meet. This scary, uncertain time – was also pivotal for me… and a blessing.
What did I want to do? What should I do? Should I just “get a job” to pay bills? Send my 2-year-old back to daycare where she caught every bug under the sun. Send my 7-year-old back to the after school program, so his days continued to be almost 12 hours long in someone else’s care? NO – a resounding “no”. But what then? I started researching for ways to work at home. Something of which I’d dabbled in – but now it was time to get serious. I wanted a career I loved. An income that afforded my family more. And a work/life balance that put my family squarely as my priority.
I knew it wasn’t going to happen magically. Finding a job that suit me, fulfilled my income needs, my schedule demands/needs and allowed me to work from my home was a tall order back in 2002. But searching for work at home became a passion, a life changing one. I’ve discovered so much more than just “a job”. I’ve found I have more skills than I thought I had and that learning new things can be fun and rewarding. And most of all — I’ve found I like sharing and helping others find their work at home dream job. So much so…. it IS my job now.
Imagine your life without the commute. Taking that time back for YOU and your family. Allow yourself to think about earning a real paycheck that adds to your family’s bottom line, that you earned from your home-based career. Today, more than ever — work at home is REAL and the opportunities are within your reach.

In 2002, I’d lost my $325 a week job. Granted, most of that went for commuting and day care costs — but the tiny bit left over was needed (and more) to pay the bills. I had two little kids. I was scared. My husband worked hard… but his check wasn’t going to be enough to keep us afloat.
I would stay up night after night looking for ways to make money from home. It was very hit and miss. I spent more time LOOKING for legitimate employment than I ever imagined. That’s when I decided to not just LOOK for work at home, but share what I found with everyone that was looking for the same thing. I just knew there had to be other moms out there feeling the pressure of bills, feeling the guilt of their child in daycare and wanting more from life than living paycheck to paycheck.
Knowing how we’re all stretched for time (let alone us moms!) – I compiled everything I found onto a webpage. And then that webpage grew… and grew into MoneyMakingMommy.com. There have been bumps and struggles, but the joy of being able to work at home and share what I find with others has been the best career I could have ever imagined. If your dream is to work at home, I understand. You need genuine resources that are current and helpful – allow me the pleasure of helping you snag that dream!
