For me, it means independence, and the ability to support my family through my own creativity and self-expression.
I became an entrepreneur because I had a newborn and daycare prices made a regular job unrealistic. I’ve never regretted it for a second.
I started my site as a way of sharing my favourite recipes, parenting articles and product reviews with readers.
That was over a decade ago! I was one of the original “mom bloggers.”
It took some trial and error. In the early years of my business, I spent every waking moment working.
I quickly learned that once I’d established my site, it was possible to reach a positive balance. One of the most efficient ways I’ve been able to do that is by using a desktop computer instead of a laptop.
I can only work while in my office; once I leave the room it’s family time!
Absolutely! I wake up earlier so I can clear out my daily emails.
I also dedicate the entire morning to work because all three of my boys are in school at that time.
Increasing my traffic! As I work with an ad network, traffic is the best way to increase my income.
A great Pinterest manager and learning about SEO has been the biggest help.
I LOVE the Happy Planner system. It lets me track everything from work to workouts to doctor’s appointments, with places for everything.
Meal planning is also an essential to keep my days running smoothly.
You have to take a leap of faith! But that doesn’t mean it has to be a huge investment.
If you dream of running a website like I do, start on a free platform like Blogger.com and just spend an hour or so a night getting it started.
