Money Making Mums Blogger Interview: Kaiden from the Kaiden Laverty blog

Posted on

Welcome, tell me a little about who you are, where you’re from and introduce your blog. 

Hello! I'm Kaiden and I'm a blogger at, copywriter, stay-at-home parent and total sleep-avoider!

Tell me, how do you make money from home?

I run two businesses of my own while having a part-time job too! I'm a freelance copywriter, blogger and also a 'Customer Success Manager'.

What makes it suitable for mums?

Luckily, all of my work can be done from home and it's entirely flexible around my little one. Of course, there are times when it's not-so flexible and a task needs to be done immediately, but it's not too often. I get to pick my own working hours, as two of them are my own businesses and for my other job, it's very much flexible around me too.

What are three benefits of working at home?

The first has to be that I pretty much pick my own working hours. If my son needs something or I have to take him to swim lessons, then I can take time out. I can also raise my son and be the 'stay-at-home parent' at the same time, just how I wanted! I couldn't imagine not being a stay-at-home Dad so I'm grateful that I have managed to make it work for us. Lastly, it's just SO convenient. If anything happens, or my little one needs picking up from preschool... I'm always available to do it! No-one has to take any time off work.

What are three negatives?

I think the biggest downfall is that I can't be ill. If I am, then everything stops. Our son can't be looked after properly and I can't work, but I also can't call in for someone to help me out either - I'm completely alone. There have been times I've been sick in the toilet, with my little toddler standing beside me and clients trying to reach me on the phone! I also quite hate that I never get to leave the house. While most days I love being able to work in my PJs, I would love some adult interaction for once! All I have really is my 3-year-old, whoever communicates with me via my laptop or phone for work and then my partner after he gets home. It sucks! Lastly, my life feels very hectic and I can never get away from work really. I live and work in the same place and all of my work is very full-on and very 'on-demand'. If someone needs me, I have to be there to answer! Most days I work on/off from 7am - 9pm/10pm!

If you could only pick one, working from home or going to an employed job for the rest of your life, which would you pick?

Ahhh, that's such a tough one! When we've finished growing our family, I would definitely want to be in an employed job. But we're not finished yet so I would never choose that in a million years! So, I'm gonna have to say working from home!! It has far too many advantages when you have a family.

People say they find it hard to be productive working alone at home. What keeps you motivated?

Honestly? Money. Right now, we're saving for a house so that's my main focus at the moment. But once we have the house sorted, it'll be giving my little one a great life. Everything I work for is for him ultimately. I want to give him a stable home and a great childhood/life. So the thought of that keeps me going. Plus, I love my work!!

Do you have a favourite quote to keep you inspired?

"Do what you love and love what you do". If you don't love your job, get a new one!

What words of wisdom can you share with mums, or others, looking to make their own income from home?

Just jump in! It was always a dream of mine and if it wasn't for my partner encouraging me, I would never have done it and it is the best thing I've ever done. You'll learn as you go, so don't worry about maybe not having enough experience etc. Just get stuck in and go for it!!

Thank you so much for taking part in my interview series!
