Living My Dream
I have been with WA for 15 months now... Hardly seems like this journey started that long ago. Yet, in the grand scheme of things, my website is still "new."
I don't promote WA on my website (though I wish I had the time for a second site so I could start) but I wanted to write this post to encourage any newbies.
I am a stay at home mom to three children. One of which is a newborn. My life is crazy. Really crazy. I started my website to help bring in some extra income so that I could continue to stay home with my children without any major impact to our lifestyle.
I made sales early on but the income was minimal. 6 months in I was pulling in slightly more. 12 months in, a little more. Now at 15 months, I am pulling in a comfortable part time income. I work less than 10 hours a week on my site as I don't have the time or energy for much more than that.
Getting to the point of a part time income is huge for me. It was my goal. And I made it. This is truly my dream. To work for myself. Set my own hours. Do something I love. AND be with my children full time.
So while I don't promote WA, I do want to say that without this community, I would not have known where to start those 15 months ago.
My 5 year goal is to be making a full time income (my youngest will be in school by then and I will be able to work many more hours). I am having my best month of sales so far this month (doubling my previous best month) so I am encouraged that I might even hit my goal sooner than 5 years.
I write all of this to help anyone wondering if you really can make money at this. The answer is that, yes, you can. I completely agree that the harder you work, the faster it will happen for you. If you are like me and can only give a few hours a week, then be encouraged that it can still work. It just takes longer to scale.
I wish everyone here lots of success and hope this helps anyone struggling today!
See you at the top!
