Make sure you have a notebook next to you while reading this book so you can write down all the new ideas you get along the way so you can immediately start applying them. This is a must!
I have followed Crystal’s blog MoneySavingMom.com for a few years now and enjoyed her previous book, Say Goodbye to Survival Mode, so I am familiar with a lot of her stories. Early in this new book, Money-Making Mom, she shared a story I hadn’t heard before from her childhood when her family lived in a trailer. She used that story to demonstrate how she learned about financial freedom from her parents and goes on to encourage her readers to determine what financial freedom means to us.
Crystal talks about making an inventory of your skills, talents, passions, and knowledge. If you are already a business owner, this may seem like a waste of time, but I highly recommend you do make a list of your own skills, talents, passions, and knowledge as you are reading. You can always refer to your list when you are feeling stuck for ideas to use in your business later on.
She even exactly pin-pointed MY biggest problem by saying, “if you can’t explain to me in two sentences or less what your business is about, you won’t be able to develop a clear action plan and specific strategies to implement your plan.”
Crystal walks you through how to take action in your business rather than just planning your business. This book truly is a must have for work-at-home moms and those who would like to earn money from home.
Silly me, I didn't realize the author is a blogger, and of course she has her fan base (well-deserved, I'm certain.) But that would explain so many five-star reviews for such a mediocre book.
I was expecting more practical advice and something deeper than what this book provided.
The first chapter discusses what financial freedom is, and what it means to you. This is a great foundation to start on because you need to find your "why," what motivates you and will continue to motivate you when times are hard. This is extremely important for this and many aspects of life, to avoid burnout and giving up.
The second chapter was probably my favorite. Crystal walks you through a process to brainstorm what are your abilities, talents, and passions. This was extremely helpful to me, because at first glance, I don't seem to have an overwhelming passion that could easily translate to a business. Through this chapter, I was able to brainstorm and write down all of the abilities, talents, and passions that I have, and to triangulate which ones could potentially bring in an income for me. So eye-opening and inspiring.
In the following chapters, Crystal goes through what the next steps are; how to get your business going. There is some very helpful and practical advice on how to get your momentum going. She also talks you through what to do when your idea doesn't work. Crystal shares personal stories of things that didn't work for her. While it looked like a failure at the time, it was actually a necessary step for what was to come. It is very encouraging to know that when we fail, it isn't actually a failure, but a step to the next opportunity.
Concluding the book, Crystal delves into the opportunities that an income from home can provide. It is great to make an income from home, but what we do with that income makes all the difference in the world. If is great to have money, but if we don't use it wisely, there's no point to having it!
I learned so much from this book. I want to share it with everyone I know!
