A lot of young parents are looking for a flexible work schedule so they can spend more time with their kids. Creating a business that provides your family with a good income and the flexibility to work where and when you want starts to become an ideal situation.
Now, this isn’t an overnight thing. You have to work hard, you have to hone your craft and dedicate years to grow it, but over time the hard work can pay off big.
Our guest today, Monica Louie, found out a way to create a business from home that allows her to spend more time with her two young children, husband and still make a multi-six-figure income.
Her story of family and entrepreneurial success has been featured on the Smart Passive Income podcast, Thrive Global and Forbes.
Our question of the month comes in from Wes from Virginia:
I’ve been married for 5 years and have a 2 ½-year-old daughter.
My wife and I have paid off $40,000 in debt but we still have $100,000 in student loans to go.
I want to find a side hustle to help us accelerate our debt pay off, but with my responsibilities at home, I’m looking for a work-at-home opportunity that pays $30 or more per hour to be worth my time to spend away from my family.
I’m willing to put in a little work upfront to learn some new skills and even open up a new business if needed.
I wanted to know your opinion on where I should focus my efforts. Thank you for your time and keep up the good work!
In 2017, I attended a conference called FinCon where I heard story after story of people who have made a full-time living through blogging. They began by choosing a topic that excited them, consistently wrote about it on their blog and eventually made an impressive income.
One presentation I attended featured a blogger who made over $6,000 per month!! It did take him a several years to get there, but with the right patience, determination and appreciation for your topic it CAN be done.
