The Money-Making Mom - Book Review

If you're a mom, whether a stay-at-home mom, a working mom, a single mom, or a mom-to-be, chances are you've thought it would be nice to be bringing in a little extra cash to help support your family. Crystal Paine, founder of the blog Money Saving Mom, wrote her latest book Money Making Mom for just those moms!

This book takes you from start to finish. It helps you uncover what your passions and talents are so you can figure out just what type of business you want to start. Then the book helps you figure out if this will be a full-time job or a side job (with the potential to become a full-time job) and how to go about getting a business started.

There's a lot of research that needs to take place, and the ideas in this book and stories from real women are not "get rich quick" schemes. Whatever business idea you come up with will require time, possibly some start-up money, and patience. You might not make millions, but that's not really what it's about.

As Paine states many times, the goal of making more money shouldn't just be so that you can buy more stuff. You should be driven to succeed in your business because it helps your family for a number of reasons and/or because it allows you to give back to the community.

There are a lot of good resources and ideas in this book. If you're a mom trying to figure out how to bring in more money for your family or transition from your full-time job to a job where you work for yourself and can spend more time with your family, then I think this is definitely a book to pick up and study.
