Like many bloggers, I wanted the opportunity to do what I live and make a living at the same time. I was excited to read Lisa’s book since she has experience in this area.
Here is a little background:
Lisa Kroulik is a freelance writer and an entrepreneur at heart. Before she found her stride in the writing world, Lisa worked from home as an affiliate marketer, online seller, and a virtual assistant. She has worked at home in some capacity for most of the past twelve years. People ask her how she does it so often that she decided to write a book to answer that question.
The introduction of “Money Making Mamas” describes the author’s own desire to work from home and the journey she took to get there. She then goes on to present in-depth information about five different work-at-home opportunities, including the ones already mentioned. Since the author has done most of the at-home jobs she discusses, her personal experience lends credibility to her narrative. Each chapter begins with a broad-level overview of the work-at-home opportunity before getting into the specifics of what you need to do to start working in that area.
The visual aids and referrals to online resources help readers form a sense of what working in that field is really like. Lisa provides approximate figures for what you can expect to earn where it is appropriate. In addition to the detailed accounts of several work-at-home jobs, Lisa provides you with guidance about tax issues, PayPal, and other ways to get paid for online work. She discusses the equipment and skills you may need as well as the personal characteristics it takes to be successful as an at-home worker.
This book is a practical and realistic guide for anyone who desires to work from home to maintain maximum flexibility with his or her schedule. The author never promises that you will get rich following any of her suggestions. As she states in the opening pages of her book, she has “a heart for mothers who want to be at home and a passion for self-employment.” This book is appropriate for parents, students, moonlighters, and anyone else who wants to use the power of the World Wide Web to make a living. Lisa Kroulik gives you the tools, but what you do with them is completely up to you.”
I knew about some of the opportunities she presented, but there were several I had no idea about. This is a great resource because these are tried and true, and it’s all compiled into one great book. She covers so many different opportunities that almost anyone can find something they could do.
