Three years ago, I was a stay at home mom who really needed to find a way to make some extra money from home.
Our budget was getting tighter and tighter each year and it was looking clear that I needed to go back to work… but that was the LAST thing I wanted to do!! I had two small girls at home and I didn’t want to give up my time with them.
When Adam and I were first exploring way to generate some additional income, we looked at a lot of different options:
- Adam could pick up a second side job (his job didn’t offer overtime).
- I could get a Job Outside the Home (I still have my Speech Therapy license)
- Start a traditional small business (making and shipping a product – I tried to sew a few dresses to sell).
- Start an internet based business.
I ended up pursuing Option 4, the internet based business, and I’m SO glad that I did! It’s made all the difference for myself and my family.
