About the Blog

I established this blog in 2017 with the purpose of helping others like myself explore ways to make extra money, start a business and work from home.

I want you to know that:

Ordinary people, like you and me, can and do make money online!

Life should be fun, enjoyable and intentional.

If you want the freedom to:

  • Choose stay home and raise your kids
  • Have money to take the family on vacations
  • Not have to live pay check to pay check.

It is NOT an elusive dream!

It is totally achievable!

Life is too short to sit in traffic every day, go to a job we hate for crappy pay and spend time away from the ones we love.

Join me on my journey to escape the daily grind so we can enjoy our lives to the fullest and have fun along the way.

I promise to share the good and dish the dirt on the various ways to make money online.

I also try to keep up with the latest in blogging, SEO and Pinterest marketing tips so I’ll be sure to share them with you in real time!
