Money Making Mums blogger interview_ Sam from StressedMum

Learn how Sam makes money at home

Every Friday I invite other bloggers and money making mums to share the ways busy parents can make money from home.  These are real life people making a living from home using their creativity.  They share their experience with us and inspire us. 

I love making money from home.  As a busy mum to two young children, working from home for myself provides me with the flexibility I need to care for my children and avoid high full time childcare costs.  It also means I get to do what I love.  I’m an advocate of earning money online and from apps.  I’m always looking for new ways to make more income from home and hope to be inspired by the many people in this interview series.


Sam Stressed Mum (4)

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

Hi I am Sam, a 50 something Mum to my two grown up stepsons and teenage daughter, plus now a Nanny to my two gorgeous grandchildren. I live in Surrey with my husband, daughter and our two dogs, and write my blog at StressedMum.

Tell me, how do you make money from home?

I am lucky to be earning money from my blog now, plus I'm a carer to my daughter.

What are three benefits of working at home?

I work my own hours, I am always here for my daughter and the freedom of being able to have days off if I want to.

What are three negatives?

  1. Isolation
  2. Long work hours
  3. Never switching off from work.

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?

Work from home!

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

It is hard at times, but I always have it in my mind that I need to work, which makes me proactive.

Do you have a favourite quote to keep you inspired?

Don't put off to tomorrow what you can do today.

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

Go for it, you never know what the future will bring, it is hard work, but the more you put into it the more you will succeed.

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