I was thrilled to guest post over at my friend Crystal’s blog earlier this week. Here’s an excerpt:
If you’re on the fence about whether or not to start a business of your own, you might want to consider these 5 reasons to become a money-making mom.
1. To get off of government aid.
This one might not apply to you, but many American families have kept afloat financially with the help of government assistance since the 2008 recession.

Becoming a money-making mom afforded us with the income needed to support our family without the use of government aid. The day I called the WIC offer to cancel our checks was monumental.

If you’re interested in becoming a money-making mom yourself, I highly encourage you to check out Crystal’s newest book, Money-Making Mom: How Every Woman Can Earn More and Make a Difference. Crystal has been blogging for over a decade and has been making a full-time income for many years now. She was my business coach for 2015 and a personal friend. I can vouch that her methods work, and her heart is for women to be able to bless their families and others by making an income from home! You can get the book here.
