6 Ways I Make Money as a Stay At Home Mom

Note: This post was previously published on an older blog of mine.

I’ve been an entrepreneur for as long as I can remember. When I was a kid I would fill notebooks with business ideas and probably highly inaccurate calculations of how much money I would make. I still do this. One business was a dog poop clean up business called The Poo Fighters. I’m not kidding. I had it all planned out, but it never ended up happening. I still believe that it would be a successful business if you live in the right area. I’m trying to convince my husband to do it. Silly businesses aside, when I became a mom my entrepreneur spirit didn’t subside. Sure, I have like 23 less hours in a day now, but I still love finding ways to earn an income from home.

My son is only two so working from home is challenging, but non-negotiable. I was working from home before a baby was even in our sights because I wanted to be able to be home if/when kids started popping into our family. So naturally here I am as a work at home mom. I want to share the different ways I have and currently make money from home. I want to empower other parents to be able to help support their family financially, and find something that’s their own, all while being home with the kids.

New blog, let’s do this!

Welcome to the new blog! I’m currently in the middle of a rebrand and combining several different concepts I’ve worked on in the past and bring them to this new blog, Hustle and Slow. I plan on sharing all the different ways I make money from home as an entrepreneur and work at home mom. I hope to inspire others to do the same and learn along with you.

My plans for this blog are to share valuable content on entrepreneurship, productivity and anything else that goes along with it. I also plan to continue to connect with this community of entrepreneurs and resellers through regular YouTube videos as well as my instagram account.

I just thought I should post a quick “welcome” post before I started getting into the meat of things.

Just a heads up I will be reposting and backdating several posts from previous blogs that include old income reports, etc. dating years back so that I can look back at them all in one spot. Those should be fun to take a look at again as I find the time to transfer those over.

Thanks for checking in and make sure you join the email list below to keep updated.

September 2016 Online Income Report

Note: This income report was previously posted on another blog of mine.

Welcome to my online business income report!

I love reading the income reports of other bloggers and wanted to start sharing mine as a way to be transparent, as well as motivate myself (and hopefully others!) to create a successful business. I’ll also be including my traffic and social media stats as well as goal tracking since those are important parts of the business and it’ll help me keep track as I move forward.

WHAT’S INCLUDED

I include all of my online business income and expenses from blogging, ebay, etc. basically any money I earn from my online businesses.

SEPTEMBER INCOME

One big change from the last time I did an income report in February is that suddenly I’m making a decent income on ebay. I started on ebay mid-August and decided it was a great way for me to earn an income from home so I jumped back in after many, many years and I’m so excited about how everything is starting off!

March 2017 Online Income Report

Note: This post was previously published on a different blog of mine.

Welcome to my online business income report!

I love reading the income reports of other bloggers and wanted to start sharing mine as a way to be transparent, as well as motivate myself (and hopefully others!) to create a successful business. I’m excited to keep track as I move forward.

WHAT’S INCLUDED

I include all of my online business income and expenses from blogging, ebay, etc. basically any money I earn from my online businesses. The only exception is YouTube as there seems to be some debate and gray area on that. It’s honestly not a big chunk of my income at all at this time so I’m not worried about sharing it.

MARCH INCOME

My main source of income right now is ebay! I’m loving it and it’s been growing pretty steadily. I was doing Poshmark at the beginning of the month, but decided to stop and just focus on ebay since I was getting some stuff mixed up with cross posting. Note that this income is everything that came in, including what I was paid for shipping, etc.

How to Sell on Instagram Course: $24
Ebay: $3,682.56
Poshmark: $12.80
Total: $3,719.36
