In 2012, I became a mum and first explored self-employment while on maternity leave. By 2013 I had started blogging, and by 2016 I was earning a full-time income through it. In 2017, I made the bold decision to leave my job and fully embrace self-employment.
As a former shopping addict who faced a debt crisis in my teenage years, I developed a strong passion for financial stability and becoming debt-free, this led to my blog having a large money-focus and my interest in side hustles and ways to make real free money.
Since I went self-employed, my husband has too, running a local handyman business, a handmade furniture business, home, garden and DIY websites, and an Etsy shop.
Drawing from our combined expertise and experience, my blog provides valuable insights into working from home, setting up home offices, running Etsy stores, monetising blogs, managing finances as self-employed individuals and a family, while balancing work, life, side hustles, passion projects, kids and health!
