Shakir: Hey, Whitney. Tell us a bit about yourself and what you do?
Whitney: I am a wife, mother of 2 with one in the oven, stay-at-home mom and creator of the website Tried and True Mom Jobs.
Shakir: What convinced you to start your blog?
Whitney: My children.
When I found out I was pregnant with my second child I no longer cared to work at my corporate job, I was already missing out on so much of my toddlers life.
I wanted to make a change before I had my daughter BUT we were living on a two-household income so if I was to quit my job as a Marketing Manager, I had to figure out a way to supplement my income.
I scoured the internet looking for ways moms could make money from home with kids but I couldn’t find any success stories.
I knew there were moms out there making money from home and after months of frustration I decided to reach out to work at home moms and ask them what they do, how did they get started, how they do it with kids, and most importantly how much they earn.
They were kind enough to share their stories, so I documented everything and created a website for moms like me looking for LEGITIMATE ways to make money from home with kids and called it Tried and True Mom Jobs.
I knew this would be a good resource and one of the work from home jobs I discovered was blogging.
Shakir: How did you achieve your financial freedom?
Whitney: My husband and I were already debt free when I decided I wanted to stay home but the money from the blog has greatly increased our income and ability to invest and become financially free.
Shakir: How do you help stay-at-home moms find legitimate job opportunities that pay well?
Whitney: I show them ways moms are doing it today and provide the tools and resources to help them get started.
Instead of saying “here are some ways you can make money from home with kids” I go a little further by showing them how moms are actually doing it, how they do it at home with kids, how they can get started and how much they can earn.
I think by providing more value and the actual “how-to” is a big reason behind the success of the website.
Shakir: Is your blog only for stay-at-home moms or anyone who wants to have multiple income streams?
Whitney: No, stay-at-home moms are my target market but the jobs I share can be done by anyone with a desire to make money from home.
Shakir: How are you currently making money from your blog and helping people get financial freedom?
Whitney: I earn money through ads on my site and affiliate marketing.
By providing valuable information I’m able to also earn money at the same time. People read my articles for information and by simply reading those articles I make money through ads and affiliate marketing if they make a purchase from one of the services/products I recommend.
Shakir: Whats your thought on ditching 9-5 day job?
Whitney: I don’t think it’s anything wrong with having a 9-5, it all depends on what you want. I was fine working my 9-5 until I had kids.
Now all I want is the freedom to be able to raise my kids and really “be there” without worrying about money. If you want to ditch your 9-5 I think the best way to do that is through entrepreneurship and investing early.
Shakir: And final question - How can readers get in touch with you?
