Start a Blog:
“How do you eat an elephant?” “One bite at a time.”
I am trying to sink my teeth into this huge elephant – using this blog to make money from home.
I am just starting out and I want to invite you to take this journey with me. Start with me. Today. Right now. Bite That Elephant – Start a Blog!!!
Here’s a little bit about my experience and how you can get started and take your first bite right along with me….
Here’s What Not to Do:
I’ve been on a journey. About two years ago I started looking for a way to make money from home (the big elephant). I did all the wrong things and looked in all of the wrong places. I wanted a bite of that elephant. I kept trying to sink my teeth in and was continually denied access. It was hit and miss to say the least. Mostly miss. I got scammed. I had no money back then any more than I have now, but I spent what I could and fell flat on my face.
I’ve learned that robbing people of their money is horrible of course, robbing them of their time is just as bad, but robbing them of their hope is despicable. That’s what happened to me over and over again. I’ve seen webinar after webinar where the people make promise after promise and they never deliver, unless you shell out the big bucks, which it’s probably a good thing I did not possess, because I probably would have shelled it out.
I kept setting out my fork and plate, but I just couldn’t get to the meat!!! The more I searched, the more I felt like a vicious beast getting more ravenous and savage by the second.
Integrity is More Important Than $:
After all of my research, I’ve realized something very important –I don’t want to be successful if it means I am a dog willing to eat another dog to get to the top. Some of you may be thinking that is just naivety and that is just the way of business, but I want no part of it. I don’t want to have to lie or rip people off to make a buck. I definitely do not want to make promises I never intend to keep. If any of those past ventures would have worked, that’s what I would have been doing. I would have been presenting myself as a successful, money-making super-mom in order to lure people into my web. I’m glad now, it didn’t work out. I don’t want to build my business that way – on a lie…
God’s Timing is Perfect:
There were times, in my journey, when I stopped searching or changed my direction all together. I thank God for those times however, because His timing is perfect and, looking back over all of it, I see the value of what I learned and how I’ve grown. Now I’m sharing with you about how to make money from home. In the past I never did make money from home worth speaking about, but I hope to teach you about what not to do and work on doing it right from here on out.
Recently, God has led me to find some wonderful resources on how to do this make money from home thing right. In this blog, I want to share those with you, as well as, hopefully encourage you and maybe even make you laugh once in a while. Writing this first post is the action I feel is necessary to move forward. To start. To go! I have researched for 2 years and tried some things that I knew in my heart before I even started them that they would fail. I know in my heart this is it. This is the time. This is the key. It is make or break time.
I’ve been gathering and gathering and gathering information and it’s been building up to overflowing
If I don’t start sharing I’m gonna
“Go bananas, go go bananas.”
It’s time to
“Peel that banana and uh take a bite!”
That’s my very brief time as a cheerleader coming out there. That’s the kind of stuff that goes on in my mind. If you hang around with me for too long, you will be getting a lot more of that. Enjoy! Ok so, I may not be the best comedian, the most super mom, or the savviest business woman, but this is me. Here I am world-wide web. I don’t have it all figured out, but I know I have a light inside of me that I need to share. If I only help or inspire one person out there, I would feel fulfilled. It would be better, if I could inspire people and make money from home for my family, but right now I’m just taking this one bite at a time.
If I Can Do This So Can You:
I am on a journey. I’ve searched and searched for a way to make money. I am currently broke (literally $1 in my bank account), but I know that will soon change. My sweet and amazing Grandma paid for my first year of hosting with Blue Host and I am using money from selling a winter coat of my husband’s on ebay to pay for the Theme for this blog. Here I am with next to nothing, but an instrument for writing and a hope and a prayer.
I don’t really know all of the possibilities for how I will make money from home with this blog, but I pray that God directs me to do it in an honest and integrity-filled manner. Ok, there it is out on the table….Yes I am a Christian!!! I can’t imagine living one day without my best friend and my source – Jesus. He will never leave or forsake me. If you don’t know Him yet, I hope you will seek Him out.
I have been doing so much searching on the web, and let me tell you, there is a Christian-Mom-Blog out there for just about any and every thing. At least God has been leading me to oodles of them! I honestly believe the BLOG is a fantastic tool that He is giving us Christian Stay-At-Home mommies to not only help our families survive, but thrive. I haven’t gotten there yet, but I believe it is in my near future. Today I will “Bite that Elephant!” I hope you will too.
P.S. Here are the resources I have found so far that you will need to start a blog:
