6 Ways to Earn

Have you ever wondered how you can stay home and work in your pajamas while living the SAHM life. Well you have definitely come to the right place. It is great when you can find the balance of raising a family and earning some bucks! As a mom I love to have a flexible schedule because I want to be available for my husband and daughter especially with the military schedule that my husband keeps.

Sahm: Stay at home mom

Here are a few opportunities that can put some money in your pocket…

Blogging-

Earning money from sponsors can actually be fun and rewarding. You can share your opinion on a product and get paid!

Be Crafty-

People love things that are personally made especially if it has a significant value “memories”. Tell me this do you remember something if it was crafted or something from Amazon. You can craft jewelry, shirts, crochet, or even something artistic.

Thrift things-

I’m sure there are plenty of things in your closet or lying around that you may not have a use for, so why not sell it. Plus if your have gifted hands you can even restore furniture.

Freelance Writer/Blogger- 

There are tons of bloggers/websites out there that can benefit from an awesome writer. This is definitely the opportunity for flexibility especially when you need exposure for an existing blog or you need an opening to build your resume.

Survey Taker-

I know we all get the receipts with the surveys at the bottom or we even see the commercial for E-bates. This are some the easiest methods to earn some quick cash. Earning cash is so much easier with the technology advances out there, it is really so convenient that you can do this from your phone.

Personal Shopper/Concierge-

I know we all have our favorite stores and sometimes we can’t leave home to run those much needed errands. Well things will be easier if we call that personal shopper to bring a jug of milk or even assist an elderly person by meeting there needs.

Earning money as a stay at home mom (sahm) doesn’t have to be difficult and the extra income can definitely come in handy when you need to buy gifts or last minute things.

Have you ever gone to the beach or zoo and you were over the experience within the first hour? Then you have come to the right place. Here is a short survival guide to make it through those tough adventures. Enjoy this awesome read!

When going to the beach/zoo you have to make sure that you have your essentials or your family outing is going to be short lived.

We have all gone somewhere that is suppose to be really enjoyable , but it feels more like a punishment because you are missing those satisfying essentials.

As you can tell by the sort of suspenseful jabber that this blog totally focuses on what you need to have in your cooler or backpack.

Well, here are some things that will turn that dreadful day into a fabulous adventure. (this will totally make your life a lot easier)

The Beach List

  • Cooler
  • Towels
  • Beach Mat
  • Umbrella/ Tent
  • Sunglasses/Hat
  • Sunscreen
  • Fold-able chairs (no one wants sand on their butt lol)
  • Baby Powder W/ cornstarch based (this is to remove the sand)

Food/Beverages

I highly suggest that you freeze your drinks!

  • Water infused with fruit and mint
  • Simple Meals: Chicken salad or lettuce based salad
  • Pasta Salad
  • Frozen Yogurt
  • Various dry snacks

Even when going on a zoo excursion you are going to need the food items because depending on your family size buying food is going to get pricey. Plus who wants to wait in those long lines, everyone will be all tired and over the trip. It is best to prepare for the unexpected.

Make life an adventure because you don’t want to miss out on awesome memories sweating the small stuff!

Being a mother and managing a business

IMG_2577

Being a mompreneur and balancing a business is not easy. There are definitely a lot of give and take, such as maintaining a routine that will work with your child’s schedule especially if you are stay at home mompreneur. My  daughter has everything to do with my schedule, there are even times recently that she refuses to take a nap and so the work that I need to get done wont happen until later that night. I can get most of my work while she is napping, but we sometimes have to play that by ear lol.

When Mariah is awake she is a ball of energy that can’t or won’t stop. I do include my daughter when it comes to business decisions because she is my inspiration behind it all. While she is awake or engaging in self play I will get on social media so that I can promote my business. Until recently I didn’t have much of a Instagram presence , but I am working hard to boost my audience.

Now that trends are constantly changing you have to roll with the millennials. You guys may have noticed that everyone is building a boutique style businesses which is all pretty and shiny which inspires a lot of aspiring entrepreneurs to flock to the various social media groups. With my business I try to keep it simple because I am a believer that less is more. You just have to figure out what is going to work for you because it is going to get harder before it gets easier.

So remember these 3 steps:

  1. Keep your head up- Be Confident!
  2. MAnage your time wisely-Always make time for your family.
  3. Live life on your own terms and not someone elses

****what may be the hottest thing today can be the least important thing tomorrow

P. S. Find your balance and manage your business. Everything else will be just fine.

Good Luck!
