The summer months can be quite slow for bloggers in certain niches. Many people are outside and not really looking for topics like 'how to make more money'.
I have made an effort to take some time off and outsource a lot of my content writing over the summer to a couple of great freelance writers that I reached out to on Facebook.
The first article that I had written by a remarkable mom of seven, yes SEVEN kids, is all about how to make extra money as a teacher online. She is a great writer and has a lot of experience with making money on the side while homeschooling her seven kids! Crazy but awesome all at once!
The second article that I outsourced to another great writer was all about the best mompreneur side hustles. Her name is Bobbi and wrote a fantastic article of over 2000 words for us. I love to hire writers that have extensive experience in fields that my audience really cares about.
The word of the week is 'Mompreneur' which seems to be used to describe any mom that starts her own business. I heard there is also 'Papapreneur' to describe a dad that is working on his own business.
What I learned is that there many moms out there that work so hard and hustle as well as looking after their kids. I love getting their stories from them and publishing them on our blog. The stories are often quite inspiring and really open your eyes to the massive array of different side hustles that people make money from. You don't need a conventional job that fixes your income to a certain level. These mompreneurs have found freedom from the limited earning potential of a job.
Sometimes it just seems that people have to be put in a position where they are forced to start a business before they flourish. For example, my friend Caitlin was brutally fired from a job that she hated and barely paid her enough to live. She was devastated, but within 5 years she was a millionaire business owner. If she had not been fired it is unlikely the pain would have ever gotten to the point where she made that leap of faith to start her business. She was basically put in a position where she HAD to perform.
Perhaps pregnancy, childbirth and motherhood are the catalyst behind the exponential growth of mompreneurs. Woman are put in a position where they can start businesses from home and they naturally turn to the internet to learn new skills to start freelance business.
Whatever the reason - well done all you mompreneurs out there!
