About the Author
Crystal Paine is a speaker and author of the New York Times bestseller Say Goodbye to Survival Mode. In 2007, she founded MoneySavingMom.com, a site that has since grown to become one of the most popular blogs on the web, currently averaging more than 1.5 million readers per month. She lives with her husband and three children in Wichita, Kansas.
Crystal Paine’s book is not a get rich scheme. It’s a very well written book about how she makes money’s with tips, ideas and advice from other Money Making Mom’s as well. Because its so full of advice and information from her successes and failures you feel as though you are sitting down and having a conversation with her. I love that she includes stories from others who are successful but share there not so successful moments with us as well. Because of that I think her book really helps you to understand that making money from home whether it be through blogging or other Home business ideas is hard work. None of which is going to blow up overnight (or at least in most cases). Many times you have to put weeks, months and sometimes even years before you see a good profit. But she asks you the all important question “Why?”.
That is the question that can make or break you. As a stay at home mom myself I want to see this blog generate income, for many reasons. However, she made me really think about why I want to work from home. What is the reasoning behind it. I must say that was hard. It’s hard to look at yourself and try to figure out what the real motivation is behind earning an income from home. But she made me look at it and that is helping me to get my priorities straight.
The book keeps your attention. Her stories and the stories of the other mom’s will help to motivate and encourage you. I recommend that every mom who wants to bring in income from home, whether because you have to or because you just want to contribute to your families finances, should read this book. Believe me it will help you.
