For years I have enjoyed being a stay at home mom. In fact, I often refer to being a wife and a mom as my hobby. I LOVE being home with my kids. Not working outside the house has allowed me to homeschool my kids, and enjoy a flexible schedule, not to mention, be available whenever my family needs me. But now, this ONE crazy thing allowed me to make money from home in addition to doing all the things I love.
I’ve been very content to stay at home and thank my husband often for allowing me the opportunity and privilege to do what I love. (He has always worked hard so I don’t have to!)
In fact, I see being home with my kids as a ministry!
THIS ONE CRAZY THING ALLOWED ME TO MAKE MONEY FROM HOME
But then one sleepless night while I was up nursing the baby, (how many epiphany moments happen while nursing babies in the middle of the night?) I was sleepily scrolling through Facebook just trying to keep my eyes open while waiting for the baby to go back to sleep.
And then I saw it! A Facebook ad came scrolling across my news feed.
The ad read, “How I make $87,000 a month.”
“Oh ya, right!” I said right out loud, almost waking the baby.
“Nobody does that!” and so I kept scrolling.
But something nagged me and I had to go back.
You know that feeling?
The one that makes you keep looking in the Facebook feed until you find what you previously dismissed as unimportant?
I clicked on the ad, unconvinced there could possibly be anything of importance for me.
LITTLE DID I KNOW…MY LIFE WAS ABOUT TO CHANGE
I quickly realized that the woman in the ad and I had a lot in common:
Neither of us would consider ourselves a writer or very academic. (She even used the term “C Students Unite” – and I could totally relate!)
Neither of us knew a thing about running a business.
I had never run a blog before. (In fact, I didn’t really even know what one was.)
Yet, the key to her success was in blogging.
This had me scratching my head:
If she could do it, then why couldn’t I? (No reason, actually! 🙂 )
After all, I had a lot to say and tons of things on my heart.
Since I’m a homeschooling, stay-at-home wife, pastor’s wife, anxiety sufferer, Christian, bilingual, lover of things all-natural and a mom, surely I would have something to say to the world!
Enter, Elite Blog Academy. An entire academy organized to teach me all things blogging related.
Elite Blog Academy, or EBA is an online academy that can take you from having no idea what a blog is, (like me) to successfully launching a blog that can eventually become a full-time income.
And then some!
BUT WHAT IF YOU’RE NOT SURE?
There are tons of testimonials of women (and men) earning a very comfortable living, simply by learning how to share their message online through a blog.
Think you don’t have a message?
You have your own unique voice and there are people out there who could benefit from all you have to offer.
Don’t feel like you’re an expert?
You only need to know a little more than the person you’re writing to.
I had no idea the amount of information I was capable of sharing in a relatable and actionable way until I started studying blogging through Elite Blog Academy.
AND NOW FOR THE REST OF THE STORY….
I never (and I mean) never, make financial decisions without my husband.
But that night, I just couldn’t let the notion of a blog go.
After I read the Facebook testimonial, I began to research other bloggers who had made a living online. (Of course, the baby was finally asleep, but I was WIDE awake at 1:00 in the morning!)
Story after story (after amazing story) appeared.
Now that I’ve been blogging almost a year, I’ve had the privilege of making friendships with some of these amazing women who are crushing it!
And their testimonies are much the same.
They are tapping into the power of the internet, all from the comfort of their very own homes.
They’re making money from home, all while still being able to enjoy their families.
THIS IS TOO FUNNY!
Ok…now the funny part.
After researching blogging, I was convinced I should talk to my husband.
I needed his advice, of course!
So I did what any other considerate wife would do…I gently nudged him from a sound sleep and said,
“Honey, should I start a blog?”
“Ummhmmm,” he mumbled.
“Ok, so then I should buy Elite Blog Academy?”
“Ya, that’s fine…..”
And then he mumbled something like…a blog sounds nice, as he drifted back to sleep.
AND SO MY BLOGGING JOURNEY BEGAN!
That night, when I hit the “Enroll Now” button I knew I was going to be a blogger! (Now don’t worry, because EBA offers a money back guarantee – and a pretty good one, at that, so I knew my neck wasn’t on the line, if indeed my husband wasn’t too happy with my decision! 🙂 )
In the morning, as soon as the first ray of sunshine began to peak through our window, I woke up to my husband saying, “Now what’s this thing about a blog??”
We still laugh about that one! He had no recollection of our conversation!
WHAT EBA HAS DONE FOR ME
Let me just say that the last nine months of my blogging career have been amazing!
I went from not knowing what a blog was to…
- Making my first $2,000 (plus) as a blogger
- Writing a book, that’s become a number one best-seller (that’s another story, but if you’re interested, you can click here.)
- Launching a second blog
- Planning digital courses and products
- Having many more plans in the works (including another blog and several other books and courses)
Now if I, a stay at home mom, with no college education, who didn’t even know what a blog was, (faking sickness in high school whenever an essay was due) can do it, then surely you can too!
WHAT BLOGGING HAS DONE FOR ME
Blogging is amazing!
I’ve loved learning how to develop products, (Check out The Homeschooling Housewife’s Chore System here) and share my message with the rest of the world!
It’s an amazing feeling to know that something I write can touch someone else!
The best thing is blogging is so much fun! I absolutely love it! And the possibilities are endless! (I still can’t wrap my mind around getting paid to do something I love so much!)
I have more ideas than time for courses to create, products to make and more blogs to launch.
On top of allowing me to earn money from home, it allows me to have a creative outlet that pays for me to do it!
Blogging offers so many opportunities to make money from home. The sky really is the limit!
Crazy isn’t it???
I’m still amazed that I can make money from home by doing something that I LOVE!
