I love that I am able to make an income from home! Here is how I make an income as a work-at-home mom!
In the spirit of transparency, I’m laying it all out. I’ve been wanting to write this post for a long time. One of my highest values for this site is being real. And so…here is my story of being a stay-at-home mom who could barely afford it, three years later.
It’s been over three years since I wrote the post about how I was a stay-at-home mom who could barely afford it. That post has now been visited nearly 900,000 times, and I have been blown away by how its message has resonated with so many moms who are walking the same path that my family walked.
I’ve thought about–and have had requests–for an update to that post. Are we still living on a low income? How are we now making it with
three four children eating table food? Did we change houses or jobs, or has our situation improved at all?
When I wrote that post, I had no idea it would become so popular. Indeed, I composed it late at night and didn’t even give much thought to it. It was, quite simply, my life, my story.
And so the words flew across the keyboard, and I confessed, albeit a bit nervously but unashamedly, that we were living on a rice-and-beans budget and barely making ends meet. We weren’t just pinching pennies. We were grasping for straws.
And there was no light at the end of the tunnel.
There are still parts of our story yet to be told–how trials in our marriage partly led to our state of need, how we lost a house, how, sometimes, depression plagued us.
I never dreamed it would happen this way, but that post began a domino effect that has taken this blog and my family on a journey the past few years that only God could ordain.
I now make an income from home–through this blog.
This business has achieved my dream of sending our little girl to a university model school, and it very literally helps put food on our table and enabled us to get off of government aid.
And God used you to do it.
“What?” You may say. “I’ve read your blog but have never paid a penny!”
And that, my friend, is precisely why I love this job. You see, I’m not a salesperson, not really. And I have very few skills beyond writing and connecting with people (can being a “people person” be considered a skill?!).
Don’t get me wrong: I encourage those ladies who revel in direct sales and selling homemade goods on Etsy to hone their talents, but it just isn’t me.
How Bloggers Make Money
When I set out to supplement my husband’s teacher income, I knew I wanted to do something that wouldn’t cost other people money–at least not unless they wanted to pay.
Yes, I do make a generous commission when readers purchase an Ultimate Bundle the few times per year that there’s a sale going on, but even for those who don’t, your very presence here–just visiting the site, helps support my family, year-round.
Advertisers and blog sponsors like pageviews, and your coming here to read free content helps feed our family. (If you’re interested, here’s a more in-depth look at exactly how bloggers make money.)
The above is what working from home looks like–girls coloring while Mommy checks email!
Bringing in an income from home has not come without a sacrifice. But it might not be the sacrifice that most imagine.
I’ve had some people accuse me of neglecting my family (even though they’ve never even entered my home!). In their minds, there is simply no way I can “do it all” without neglecting something.
They are right in that I can’t “do it all,” and I don’t. I have help. I now have a team of ladies who help me (some of whom are pictured here), and, although my husband is still a teacher, he is now able to be home three Fridays per month since he teaches an elective class. This affords him the time to help with our daughter’s homeschool days, and it gives me the time needed to work–without neglecting my home and family.
Honestly, one of the biggest sacrifices has been a loss of privacy and public criticism. I am a feeler (and ENFP to be exact!), but I’ve had to grow some thick skin.
People misinterpret and misconstrue things that I write, and some people even attack my character.
Yes, it hurts. Because the same people who criticized us for succumbing to using some government aid also took hits at us when we pulled up our bootstraps and did something–albeit something outside of the norm and creative–about it.
Being a work-at-home mom can be both the best of both worlds and the worst of both worlds, if I’m honest.
I get to be with my babies nearly 24/7. The littles attend preschool two mornings per week, but I am their primary caretaker.
I am the one to kiss their boo boos, read them stories, dress them and fix their hair and make them home-cooked meals. At nap time I get to rock my youngest to sleep, and all three of them like to run into our bedroom and jump in the bed with me for morning cuddles.
But because I work from home, I cannot go on spontaneous playdates like other stay-at-home moms. I have not–for two years now–been able to attend a morning Bible study. I’ve had many, many, many late nights.
Blogging–and working from home in general–is hard, hard work. But, for my family, it’s 100 percent worth it.
You Can Stay Home with Your Kids!
My new book, You Can Stay At Home With Your Kids: 100 Tips, Tricks, and Ways to Make It Work on a Budget is out!
This beautiful, hardcover book gives 100 of my best money-saving tips in bite-sized, easily-digestible chunks to help any mom curb spending and create more income for her family.
Each tip comes with an action step to help you make real, lasting change in your family’s bottom line.
I will be the first to admit that even stating out loud that I now make an income from home is scary. Why? Because it could all go away tomorrow. I hold it with an open hand.
I’m keenly aware of our low-income years. In fact, in my mission to encourage, educate and empower my readers to live a grace-filled, natural life, I want to always, always show you that no matter your income level, you can make positive changes toward greater health and wellness and homemaking.
Don’t get me wrong: We are not rich. This may sound silly, though, but I pray nearly daily: “Lord, help me not to forget.”
I don’t want to get stuck in the middle income bubble. I want to be relatable to those still sitting in the WIC offices, still pulling out their Medicaid cards to take their babies to the doctor and still squinting to see even a glimmer of light at the end of a seemingly endless tunnel.
Above all, I have to remember that God is sovereign. He orders our steps. And I believe it is only He who has gone before and orchestrated the success of our businesses.
Turning your hobby into a business
When I started this site in 2011 I was learning the ropes of both homemaking and healthy living, and I wanted to share with you all what I was learning. I wanted to show a wife and mom who was not perfect but humbled. I wanted to create a grace-filled community where we could all learn together.
My hobby blog is now how I make an income from home. This is my story. It’s not everyone’s. But God does have a story for you.
Dear sister, if you are struggling like we were, know there is hope.
Perhaps you do love sales, and you’d like nothing more than to join a direct sales company.
Maybe you enjoy making your own skincare products, and you’d like to open your own Etsy shop.
Maybe you have the gift of teaching, and you’d like to begin offering tutoring services.
Or maybe you are a healthy living enthusiast, and you’d like to get certified as a health coach.
See if one of these 40 ways to make money from home gets your creative juices flowing! Whatever it may be, if God has given you talents and put the desire in your heart to bring in an income from home, don’t be afraid.

Do you make an income from home? What income-earning ideas would you like to try?
I’m a stay at home mom of 2 boys. I want this so bad, but my hubby don’t get paid until Friday! :'(
I’m so sorry, Dawn, and I understand. 🙁 I would never want someone to buy it when they didn’t have the money. We will be holding another one–a homemaking-themed one–in the spring, and it should be around the same price. I am giving away individual components of the bundle today on my Facebook page–every hour, on the hour–so maybe you can win one of the books or courses? I wish I could just give them ALL away! 🙁 I hope you have a good day!
If you have a Paypal account you can use their pay it later feature. It’s like an online credit card that you can pay off as soon as the paycheck comes in. It’s been so helpful for me when I need just a little more time at the end of the week!
I bought the bundle and I am so very grateful for the opportunity! I’m still very new to the world of blogging and I’m enjoying every minute of it. We are a family quite familiar with beans and rice. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling, homesteading mom of 6. Every bit of anything I can learn makes it ask worth it! Thank you!
Thank you so much for buying the bundle, Lorri! I hope you LOVE it! And I don’t know if you’ve heard of Blogging with Amy or How They Blog, but they are two of my FAVORITE resources on how to grow your blog!! I hope you LOVE your bundle!!
Lisa @ This Pilgrim Life
I’m a new blogger as well, and Blogging with Amy and How They Blog are both really helpful!
Still not sure I understand….you make money from writing the blog or when people buy a bundle? I love writing, but not sure how publishing a blog would allow me to do that….
Hi Tracey! I make money both ways! We just do bundle sales twice/year (I LOVE them but I can’t take more “selling” than that! LOL), but I make money year-round on the blog. The buttons/banners in the sidebar are ads that companies pay. Companies also pay for giveaway posts. Here are some great blogs/podcasts on learning how to make money blogging. (It’s a REALLY great wahm job for someone who enjoys writing!!)
http://howtheyblog.com (more of a podcast, but she is SO encouraging and motivating! I’ve been on her show a couple times…I would go back and listen to the very first one and listen to them all!)
Will you be doing a blog on the how?
You can find several posts here, Ana: https://thehumbledhomemaker.com/pick-my-brain Hope that helps! 🙂
Thanks for sharing this… I was the mom pulling out her wic card and Medicaid card, feeling embarrassed and like I needed to justify myself to anyone watching… Our financial situation recently changed as my husband started a new career but those days are still so clear in my mind. I appreciate your honesty in wanting to relate.
It is comforting to find people who understand, Lindsey–I’m glad it wasn’t just our family–and I’m also so glad to hear your family’s situation has improved as well! Congrats on the new career for your husband!!
Same here, payday is Friday, I wish I could get it
I’m so sorry, Kelly! 🙁
Glad to “know” a fellow ENFP! I am glad to know I am not the only one who struggles to sell things! Your story really encourages me – both with my financial situation and my blogging. Thanks for being transparent – that is one of the reasons that I continue to read your blog!
ENFPs rock, @Shelli!! LOL It’s so much fun to find kindred spirits! Thanks so much for reading and for the encouragement!!! Have a great day!! 🙂
I love your transparency! I am going to have a blog one day soon! I’ve been learning so much with my autistic daughter and I’m taking a nutrition program and I really feel I need to share what I learn with the world! I would love to justify the time commitment with some earning potential! Thanks for your encouragement! I love your blog!
Thanks so much, Stephanie! Your blog idea sounds great!
I wish there was a paperback option I could purchase even if it costed more money. I cant do ebooks. And I do not like that for all the bonuses I have to pay extra for shipping, so in no way do I consider that free. All of the free bonus offers that I must afford shipping on, expire in a month, I would think this offer should last a lot longer than that. Maybe I’ll consider purchasing next time if some of these issue’s are addressed
Hi Anon! I can understand your frustration. I might feel that way too if I didn’t know how things lined up on the backend of the sale. The paperback option would cost hundreds of dollars in shipping, and the only way we can actually make this sale a big deal is by offering eBooks.
Also, the bonuses are free but the companies are just charging the regular amount of shipping. They companies are already losing money by providing thousands of orders of free items, and they would probably have to shut down all together if they were to pay shipping.
That’s why they are optional to redeem and just a “bonus.” You aren’t really paying for them with the bundle–just everything else!
I hope you have a great day! 🙂
Danielle @ More Than Four Walls
Anon, your point is valid about the shipping. But I can’t remember the last time I ever had a “free” offer online that didn’t require me to pay shipping. Not too long ago I got some free homeschooling printed books but I still had to pay shipping.
Erin, as someone who has watched your business/blog take off, I am so very happy and proud of you!! I am still struggling, probably because of my niche, but hope to one day make some money at home through blogging. As the baby gets older – 22 months – it’s hard to do anything when she’s awake. Do you work when your children are awake during the day? Do you think it works b/c they play with each other? Do you think if you only had one it would work as well? I ask because I’m trying to figure out how I can do what you do. 🙂
Thank you so much for the kind words, Brenda! I found that it goes in seasons. I try not to work while the girls are awake, but sometimes I do in the afternoon when H is napping and the older two are having quiet time or watching a movie (they do not nap anymore). I do think it’s easier with them all having each other to play with. Last year, the older two went to 2 mornings or pre-k, and the second semester, after H cut out her morning nap, I really didn’t get anything done work-wise while they were at pre-k.
So sad to hear that people accuse you of all sorts of bad things! 🙁 Know that you are loved and appreciated by so many of us!
Thank you so much, Nikolia! That means a lot!
what ENFP mean?
Elizabeth, here is the personality description: http://www.personalitypage.com/ENFP.html
I just wanted to say how wonderful it is to hear your prayer that you won’t forget what it’s like. Our family just got off food stamps and Medicaid earlier this year (we are still on WIC). We are probably still considered poor/low income, but I am proud of the strides we’ve made. More than that, though, I am so glad that we were so poor those years, because it has taught me a lot. We’re smarter with the little money we do have now, and our hearts are softened a lot. We’ve also learned a lot about who our true friends are. Just wanted to say that your prayer is a great one. 🙂
The bundle looks great sadly we too are on a budget with four small children that need winter clothing. I’m a SAHM we sold everything we had and moved just to save money. I’m one of nine children so I know the lifer of penny pinching. I also blog for fun and I’m unsure of where it will take me. Been following you for two years now and have enjoyed every post !!!! U inspire .
Tracy @ OurSimpleLifeSC
I hope I speak for many…I love your honesty!
Lisa @ This Pilgrim Life
I love your blog and really appreciate your honesty about blogging and how it has been a way to help provide for your family. What a blessing to find something you love doing, that helps others, and then for God to use it in such a wonderful way.
I have hopes for my blog to one day be able to financially help our family, but for now, I am pleasantly surprised at how much I really love writing and connecting with people in this community.
You seem to be a very nice person and I can tell your family is very special to you!!!
My children are grown and married . I was able to be at home with them for about 90% of their childhood. Which I loved being there with them. I have always enjoyed crafts, flower arranging, and I discovered that I can paint pretty good. I always wanted to sell the things I made and have sold some. But my husband has never unwanted me to get involved with selling. He thinks I’m just wasting money. He doesn’t want to give me the time that it takes to get a business established. I opened a shop once that I rented spaces out for venders and I had my things in the store also. I was only open for about 10 months and he wanted me to close it. I don’t know what to do. God gave me these talents, and I want to use them to make us some extra money since he had to go on disability. I have always decorated our Church and made the flower arrangements for no charge. He doesn’t really like me even doing that. Because of the time that it takes. I threaten to just quit trying, but I can’t it is in my blood. What can I do??? Don’t take me wrong, he is a wonderful husband and father!!!
God bless you! For all the negative comments you receive know that there are 110 other mommas that greatly appreciate you! Forget about the negative and keep going girl! Thank you!
What a beautiful inspiring story. Thank you. I’m in your exact position. My husband teachers too. I use to teach but have chosen to be with my little boy, I pray an income comes to us too.
Thank you for this
Can you contact me? I know a lot of women are asking you right now and so I am no more special than anyone BUT I am a passionate writer. Have been my entire life. I started a blog a long time ago called The Way I See It. I wrote one article and it was about pay wages for CNA’s. I was going to be a CNA and the pay was shameful. Well long story short, I have 7 kids…all the baby are in public schools which I hate. I started out homeschooling but I had no support and one child with Aspergers. I want to home school my 2 year old (of course with guilt over not doing so with the others).Our family needs more income desperately. I feel so judged as a mother…on one hand there is what my heart tells me to do…be a mom, a homemaker. It certainly isn’t the lazy, easy work the world tends to make it out to be. In fact I find it more stressful than working outside the home. HOWEVER, working outside the home was too much because I had to divide myself in way too many directions and as a result things were getting neglected where I felt my attention should have been (home). Anyways, since my blog was short and ancient, I don’t even remember how to get into my old account. I have no idea really how to blog and especially for income. I could really use some insight, advice…Anything helps. I need a support system of women like you and I. Would you mind emailing me and helping me out a bit? Thank you so much.
Angela, she mentioned in one of the comments above a bunch of good resources for blogging. I also have a Pinterest board here you could follow that has tons of resources for learning how to grow and improve a blog. http://www.pinterest.com/jamie574/blog-help/
This is such an inspiring post, it had me in tears of thanks for your open and compassionate nature. Thank you for being so real!
Such a great post, Erin! Glad you were able to find courage to post this. Such an encouragement how God has blessed your family!
Thank for this, I felt as if you were speaking directly to me! I’ve been struggling with 12 hour work days and a special needs child, feeling like I desperately need to be home with him more. As you said, working from home probably wouldn’t be easy or ideal but it would be better for my son and that’s what’s important! May God bless you for all your sacrifices and for encouraging fellow mothers to empower themselves!
work from home ideas that really work
Your style is very unique in comparison to other people I have read stuff from.
I appreciate you for posting when you have the opportunity, Guess I
will just bookmark this web site.
I am also earning from home.As a freelancer we have lot of work to do for suitable clients.Many people earning from home by blogging.It is really great.
Slap Dash Mom
This is a great post!
Hi erin! I would like you to know that your blog has truly been enriching for a neophyte blogger like me =) Keep on inspiring!
What a great article! I am so glad you and Will have found success together both in business and in marriage. Thanks for the great blogging advice and look forward to maybe seeing you at home during the holidays!
i actually thought I hated sales but I found a direct sales product I loved so much that I signed up just for the personal discount. and then I realized I could really make it more into a marketing thing and less about sales (i’ve never done an in home party) and I’ve made more in 3 months of that than I have in many, many years of blogging
thank you, It greatly encourages me
I really wish you would talk about how bloggers make money!
Hi Erin! I am so encouraged by your blog, and I have been following it for quite some time now. I am a SAHM and have felt God’s tug to pursue earning an income through my blog, Avocado Mommy. I am new to this, and I feel that I am trying to teach myself quite a bit. If you have any suggestions as to how I can be successful, I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you for your love for Jesus, your family, and your blog followers. You have a beautiful heart. 🙂
Great article. I’ve thrown my hat in the ring by starting the ecommerce site familycomforts. Like you, I am a stay at home mom. I’ve always referred to my son as my Gift from God and today is no exception. As a single, stay at home the quest to make this work are equally strong. Without income from the business, savings will diminish quickly so I find myself suppressing the guilt associated with what if it doesn’t work? Congrats to you and your family for your success. Your words are very encouraging to me as I march forth down this road. Have a wonderful day! Please note that I wasn’t looking for free advertising here, when I put in my website address, the sweepstakes that I am currently running popped up below. I’ve done some paid advertising so maybe this is a sign that it’s working.
I’ve been through the trials of working long days away from my home and family and longing for the day I could live the life I choose to live and make a decent income while doing it. I’ve now started that journey in earnest. Learning of other’s courage while pursuing similar goals is inspiring.
I’m an INFP so I can empathise. We hold strongly to our values, too!
Keep up the great work!
I certainly wish I had the opportunity to stay home with our children. I want to be the one to raise them, teach them, & witness their milestones… My husband & I, however, are not on the same page spiritually & so he doesn’t understand my passion for it & faith in God to pull us through… I think because it’s so contrary to the norm. This is really hard, b/c it appears my only option right now is to go back to work full time. I admire what God has allowed you to do & your husband’s understanding.
I wonder if the same could be applied to vlogging. I’m not very good at putting my thoughts into words. I’ve been trying to make money from my hobby but people tend to want things free or let me know that a department store is cheaper.
I appreciate what you’ve shared. I love that blogging is a way that I can be at home and still be earning some money. I know that God will use the hard times that you went through financially and in your marriage to bless and encourage others.
I could especially relate to what you said about growing a thick skin. I wrote a post a few weeks ago that got me long rants in email form, longer than the blog post. They were hurtful words and it’s not the first time (it happens almost every time I write about adoption actually) and I did cry and lose sleep over it, but not nearly as much as the past times. I think I am growing a thicker skin and preparing myself better for the criticism that I may face.
You’re really inspiring Erin. You may not know it, but you are helping more than you know I’m sure. I’m sure a lot of mom would love find this post and your materials very helpful, and I would definitely recommend this site anytime.
Alena Belleque (The Homemade Creative)
I’ve been a hobby blogger one place or another for years, but it suddenly took off this year. I’m writing my last two posts on my current blog today, and then taking a break to consider and weigh options, rebrand, and clean up old posts I want to keep. It’s a huge undertaking, but if I’m going to pursue this seriously I want to do it right, and well. And since I am a disabled homemaker, who relies on monthly social security checks to help my husband keep a roof over our heads, I need to be absolutely certain I can do this since it will affect my family’s ability to function independently. I believe God gave me a gift for this, and I’m willing to take risks to follow Him. I’m just feeling a little scared of the unknown right now.
Rose @ Walnut Acre
Thank you for sharing your story. I have just begun writing my blog again and this is so encouraging to read.
I’m so glad you found it encouraging!
My husband and I are at the “beans and rice” point. I literally teared up reading this post. We have 3 kids, 6 and under and have been seeking God for a way out. Recently, I started sharing Young Living essential oils to help pay for my orders. Quickly my accidental business grew and now we are looking at a consistent paycheck. It’s small right now, but we are working on making our next rank and things are moving along. I am figuring out the stay at home, homeschooling and work from home mom balance. I just loved your post and appreciate your transparency. I’m sorry you get criticism from some readers. Keep up the good work!!
Thanks so much, Briana–and congrats on the success of your business!!
Erin- I am so sorry there are mean people who judge others with out knowing the entire story. Glad you are getting thick skin
Thank you, Dawn. Blogging isn’t for the faint of heart–that’s for sure! LOL!
I’ve been doing quite a bit of research lately seeing what it would take to run a blog, and I must say, I feel a bit overwhelmed. There is so much more that has to be done on the back end that nobody sees. But I’ve been praying about it, I feel as though God has put the desire in my heart to pursue, so I think I may just take a leap of faith. Thank you for your encouragement and leadership.
I know it can be so overwhelming, Trena! I don’t know if you saw it, but Blogelina is running a special deal on their intro. to blogging course right now. It’s just $.99. That might help?! https://thehumbledhomemaker.com/2015/02/earn-money-blogging.html
This post was not what I expected. I’m glad I took the time to read it! Thanks for laying your life out on the table for us, God is truly using your sacrifice for His good. Thanks for the encouragement. Bless you!
Thank you, Katie! It is totally the Lord!!
Thank you for your post. I am not a stay at home mom but pretty close. I work part-time as a secretary at our church. (Total Blessing!) I also own and operate a sewing business. I understand the struggles of living paycheck to paycheck. My husband makes decent money, we live in a completely affordable home and are raising three awesome kids. My oldest is in college and my youngest will be entering high school this fall.
I must say even when I was working full-time and my husband full-time, it was and still is a stuggle. When my kids were born and very young we were eligible for government aid. Had it not been for WIC and medicaid we would not have survived the cost of raising those babies. We are not eligible for those programs any longer (obviously) however, I am not ashamed of using them because we are both tax paying citizens that should have access to those programs if necessary.
Even now with the cost of health insurance and outrageous deductibles I am seeking assistance for recent medical bills my daughter has accumulated. We also got assistance paying for my middle son’s hearing aid. I am not ashamed of that, it proves to me everyday that God provides when necessary.
In closing, thank you and God Bless you and your family. Keep the faith. I will be reading into some of your money making blogs.
Phallin @ Cottage Homestead
Thank you so much for pouring out your heart and soul. I have always been a stay at home Mom, mostly I made a side income selling on ebay. But last year I learned how to make soap and I LOVE it. I started selling it on Etsy and it has been a HUGE blessing for our family. It feels good to be able contribute financially!!
I have just newly discovered blogs, websites, social media of homemaking, gardening, DIY ideas, etc. I actually am close to retiring within 2 to 5 years (but still young enough) to do something from home. I have a good understanding of computer tech, but am trying to piece together all that it entails in starting with a website (Thank you for the instructions and advice). Our children are out of the house, basically college age, and even though we both work, we still need a little extra. We recently purchased a house with almost 3 acres and I have always been a crafty person and raised close to the country, I want to start a garden, fix up the house and become more conservative on spending. I just wanted to let you know that I really admire you for telling your story, it is very inspiring. Thank you
Dearest Erin the most important thing when it comes to work is knowing that the Lord wants you to do this/blogging/… if you have His approval and peace in your heart, than you are on the right track!
Also, if your husband, as your earthly lord, supports you in doing this, than you know – you are in the center of God’s will.Other opinions should not matter much- just continue to do your best for God’s glory!
Also, you mentioned you have not been able to attend morning Bible studies for 2 years…So many busy working moms are in your boat…I know so much is on your plate, but how about videoing 5 min mini studies for your own sake and other busy women’s sake – so many will appriciate it!
You can do a mini Bible book study or give a 5 min study on a book/ such as ,, Created to Be His Helpmeet.” by Debi Pearl or ,, Loving God with all your mind.” by Elizabeth George! I think this will be fabulous for you and others! What do you think? Be encouragedJesus smiles when He sees how much you desire to please Him!
I found I could earn a great income by becoming a Rodan and Fields skincare consultant. They have a very generous compensation plan and have great reward programs for just doing your job! I am so thankful that I’ve been able to find something that I can fit into little pockets of time throughout the week so I can generate a good income without taking away time from my family!
Sounds like a great opportunity!
As a stay-at-home momma of two girls under 4, I recommend “Medical Coding and Billing” as a wonderful work from home option. Yes, you will need training. You can’t just code medical records without having proper training. However, this is a real and promising career. I used to work for “Career Step” and they have an awesome Medical Coding and Billing course.
Their training is done online and is self-paced. You could finish the program in 4 months but 6 months is probably more realistic. They do however give you up to a year to get it all done. Their program is approved by the American Health Information Management Association and the American Academy of Professional Coders. They work specifically with a company called IOD inc. that hires their grads to work from home right out of the program.
The average salary for this career is about $40,000. Their entire program including books, instructors and job assistance is around $3,000 and they offer sweet payment plans.
If you want more info or have questions let me know @ [email protected]
Sounds like a great program! Thanks for sharing!
Erik C. Johnson
Thank you so much Erin for your story. I agree with your blog methodology of being transparent. One of my biggest facets on my own blog is being really vulnerable with personal stories. I really like how you had that “godsend” post which helped you get food on the table and get your little one to University. I aspire to get discovered as you did and finally get out of poverty. Thanks again!
