How To Earn Money From Home {My Story}

There are many different ways to earn money from home, but I am going to share with you the way I know how and what works for me.

I have been blogging for {almost} 2 years now.  This seems crazy for a girl who didn’t even know what a blog was! 

Since then I have l been able to generate an income while working part time at home through blogging and social media marketing.

Prior to blogging, though, my life was completely different.

My husband and I were burned out in our jobs.

We were in debt.

I had been through a cancer nightmare and felt physically broken down. 

I was tired and depressed. 

Life was changing for me as a mom as my boys were getting older.


Life just felt hard. 

Have you ever felt that way? 

Maybe you do right now.



But 2 years ago that changed.


At that time I worked outside the home part-time through my house cleaning business.  However, after realizing the cleaning products were making me physically ill [read that story here], I started researching natural cleaning products on the internet.  It was then that I was introduced to the blogging world and found Bonnie Donahue’s blog.

Bonnie uses natural cleaning products by Shaklee and has a TON of blog posts with pictures and uses of those products. 

I devoured her blog.

I think I read almost every post in one sitting.

She was living a healthy and natural lifestyle.  She was earning an income while being home with her kids.  She was helping others. 

I wanted that. 

So I emailed her.  I went with my gut.  I NEEDED those products! I felt nervous.  I mean, really, who contacts a stranger and says ‘I want what you have’?  lol 

You know what?  She emailed me back.  Now, we are good friends and have even taken trips together and my family and I stayed at her house last year.  I just love what the blogging community can offer and turn into.


Since that one decision 2 years ago, my life has changed to say the least!

My headaches went away.

I have more energy.

I have a renewed sense of direction and purpose as a person not just a mama.

We have paid off $15K of credit card debt.

I am able to stay at home with my kids which is my desire and dream.

I found something I am passionate about and LOVE helping other families.

I actually earn an income from blogging and social media marketing.

I got off all my allergy medications.

I have been given a clean bill of health from my oncologist and I credit a large part of that from natural health measures.

My kids are healthy and we all rarely get sick.

I have met many like-minded women all over the country.

My husband took a much needed sabatical from his job and we toured the US for 6 months in our 5th wheel with our 3 boys.


Because I took that step to reach out and find out if what Bonnie had was for me, life is not the same.



I joined Project Dream International marketing team (before we even existed!) and brand partnered with Shaklee and have not regretted the decision to email Bonnie at all.

Maybe you are in a similar situation and are just tired of being tired.  Maybe you are in debt like we are.  Maybe you are ready to help your family (and yourself) get healthier.  Maybe you want to be at home with your kids.  Maybe you just want some fun money.  Maybe you have a crazy dream like we did to travel. Whatever it is for you, let’s talk. 

Maybe that one email will change your life like it did mine.

Let’s talk.
