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 who can share their experience with us and inspire us. If you’d like to feature in this series with a guest post of a relevant topic or you’d like to take part in the interview, please do get in touch or find the interview questions by clicking here.
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.
Welcome, tell me a little about who you are, where you’re from and introduce your blog.
Tell me, how do you make money from home?
What makes it suitable for mums?
What are three benefits of working at home?
If you're a silent worker, you can work in silence. If you like music blaring, you can do that. There's no one else in the room with you, so your working conditions can be just as you want them.
You can claim tax back on any internet usage, house phone business calls, or electricity. Just remember to track when you're using these things for business.
You can please yourself. You can pick your children up from school when needed, take a half day if you have a parent's evening, etc. Totally flexible.
What are three negatives?
It can be a bit anti-social.
Motivation can sometimes be difficult to find. And working can be difficult if you have the kids at home.
You eat way too much food and snack constantly because the fridge is right there.
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?
People say they find it hard to be productive working alone at home. What keeps you motivated?
What words of wisdom can you share with mums looking to make their own income from home?
Thank you so much for taking part in my interview series!

Not a mum? No worries! This guest series is all about inspiring parents to earn their own income and realising they have more than two choices of going out to an employed job or being a stay at home parent.
Of course if you choose to do either of those options that's absolutely fine, no judgement here, but lots of mums, like me, didn't realise there was another way to make money by the many self-employed options available nowadays. If you earn from home, parent or not, and it's suitable for parents then you can take part.
