I was going through old photos earlier this week and discovered this photo — it’s of my husband and I and our daughter Kathrynne in the early years of our marriage. My husband was in law school, I was trying to help us stay afloat and stay out of debt by making money online, and we were both trying to figure this parenting thing out.
Those years were simple, but stressful. We didn’t have any extra money so that kept life very, very simple. And sometimes we miss those days.
But at the same time, life was stressful because we never knew how we were going to manage to pay our bills each month. We ate a lot of beans, we stayed home a lot, and we prayed a lot!
I look back on those years and realize that we learned so much and grew so much as a result of them. It was hard. It was stretching. But we learned to be creative, to be content, and to think outside the box. And it was those character traits that laid the foundation for the successful businesses that we have today.
I loved getting to reminisce on those years in my new book, Money-Making Mom. I share some of the stories from when I was a child and the lessons my parents taught me, as well as the lessons my husband and I learned early on when we were first starting an online business.
We didn’t have a clue. We made so many mistakes. And we look back and wonder, “What were we thinking??”
But little bit by little bit, we started to discover a few things that worked. We’d make $1 here and $3 there. And then $10 here and $20 there.
The little trickles became a stream that became a river that became a rushing torrent.
All because we didn’t give up. We kept going when it felt discouraging. We kept pressing on through mistake after mistake. And we kept learning and growing.
And I’m so thrilled to have the opportunity to share more in-depth than I ever have before in my new book, Money-Making Mom: How Every Woman Can Earn More and Make a Difference.
This book is for you if you are:
- Struggling with getting a business off the ground.
- Wishing you could find a mentor to hold your hand.

It’s the manual I wish I had had when I started my very first online business 10 years ago. It’s practical, inspirational, and relatable.
