Insights from a Mom That Will Help You Be Successful
Have you ever wanted to be a mom who works at home? Would you like to have your own business? Would you like to be able to work more flexible hours? I didn’t say less hours, if you want to make a full-time income from home, you will probably have to work full-time hours, but you can adjust the hours to your schedule.
In Crystal Paine’s new book, Money-Making Mom: How Every Woman Can Earn More and Make a Difference, Crystal speaks in detail of how she started her business and her struggles in the beginning to be successful. Throughout the book, she shows us how all mom’s can be successful and make money from home or with our own business.
Many moms would like to work from home and have the flexibility a home business can provide. Whether your goal is full-time or part-time income, you will learn and be inspired by reading Money-Making Mom.
7 Things I Learned from Money-Making Mom
We all have our own unique story of success.
Money-Making Mom shares examples from many moms of how they started their businesses. Everyone has a unique story to tell, just as you have a unique story to tell with our business.
I loved reading how other women are successful moms working from home. It shows me there is room for all of us. We all have a different path to take and our own journey. Some of us will reach our goals in a very short period of time while others will need more time. Part of being successful is our unique journey.
Understanding how my unique talents and abilities can be used for a successful business
We all have unique talents and abilities. But not all of our talents will become money making businesses, they may just be hobbies we love. In Money-Making Mom, Crystal helps us understand how to define our talents and abilities and decide which talents and abilities would make the best business.
Success takes time.
Money-Making Mom is not a story about overnight success. In fact, Crystal’s own story shows it took her many years to become successful. Many of the examples in the book also share the success of women who worked their businesses for months and years to achieve success.
If you are discouraged that your business isn’t growing as fast as someone else’s, remember to compare yourself with yourself only…. Look at the progress you are making toward your goals – even if it seems very slow and miniscule – and be encouraged by that.

To be successful making money from home either with a blog, a business or freelance work, you will need to set goals, but recognize success takes time.
Use failure as a learning experience.
In Money-Making Mom, Crystal speaks openly and candidly of several businesses and websites she started that did not work and she could not make money to help her family. She used these experiences to continue to improve her business until she finally succeeded with Moneysavingmom.com.
Starting a business means sometimes we will have failures. Our business may not grow as fast as we planned or a product or service may not be a popular as we hoped it would be. We can still learn from the failures, make changes and be successful in the future.
Success must be nurtured every day.
We cannot expect to reach a level of success and then continue to be successful if we don’t continue to nurture our business and reach for our goals every day.
All your hard work to build a business can be lost if you do not continue to nurture your business every day. Yesterday’s success is not a guarantee for today.
Success can be unexpected.
Moneysavingmom.com has grown to a much larger success and business than Crystal ever imagined. She only started this blog to make a little extra money to help her family when her husband was in law school.
Sometimes, our goals and expectations are too small. Dream big and stay focused on your goals.
Help others be successful.
On our journey to success, we can help others be successful. Crystal and her family give very generously to others.
We should focus on making money to impact our family and loved ones for the better. In addition, our focus for making money should be to help those in the community and around the world.
Crystal Paine, Money-Making Mom
Even if you cannot give monetarily, you can help and encourage others. Your time is a valuable resource.
Give as generously as you are able, but expect nothing in return.
Money-Making Mom is an insightful book that will give you many ideas for your own business or new ideas for how you can make money from home. You will be challenged and encouraged by this book.
