Crystal and I have been friends for a long time!! Of course, I am speaking figuratively!!!
I first encountered Crystal when she was offering her Blogging University Course. Even now I can not
remember how I stumbled upon her wisdom. I am assuming because I was needing help to get my blog up
Tired of living paycheck to paycheck
As a mom it seems natural to me that we have a want inside of us to help with the financial situation of our
family. I can relate to Crystal in this way. Her and Jesse were living paycheck to paycheck barely making
ends meet. We are a one income family, and this is extremely hard in today’s economy.
Crystal makes it very clear:
- Money doesn’t buy happiness.
- Money doesn’t equal fulfillment.
- Money doesn’t solve your emotional problems.
- Money doesn’t give you purpose.
She is very straightforward about her passion to help other moms to find a way to start over in a new
direction. In her book Money Making Mom she gives you very practical ways to make money as a stay at
home mom. She has been where I am at therefore, she is very relatable.
Financial Freedom starts with mindset
Did you know that? Your mind is a key component in how we deal with every decision that we make.
I am always trying to get out of my own head all the negative thoughts toward money.
Money Making Mom is definitely a book you must read if you are wanting to help your family out financially.
The chapters in the book:
- First Steps to Financial Freedom
- What Makes You You
- The 8-to-5 Cure Working Yourself
- Get Moving, Start building
- Expand Your Thinking, Expand Your Wallet
- Growing Your Business
- What Gets in the Way
- Live Generously
- How to Give? Let Me Count the Ways!
- Here’s to your Success!
Crystal started her blog Moneysavingmom.com because she discovered there were so many families who wanted help in decreasing their food bill and needed a guide to lead them. This was something she was already doing because her and Jesse didn’t want to go into debt while he was in law school.
Some thoughts to consider
What is something you enjoy doing?
Do people always ask you how you do xyz? If so, is this something you could teach other people?
Maybe you don’t desire to start a blog but Crystal offers other ideas that might be of an interest to you.
In conclusion I highly recommend Money Making Mom if you are looking for inspiration to help your family out financially.
I started this blog to help other moms of large families create a simple lifestyle by growing a garden, and being a good manager of their homes. I want to encourage them to find joy in all that they do. We serve an audience of one- God.
