With all of the Wurk in my life it has been hard to find the time to write. Fortunately we have great guest posters who continue to provide you fabulous MommyWurk content. A little round of applause for all of our guest bloggers!
In a mother’s life work takes on a variety of different forms:
- Full time job
- Part time jobs
- Personal shopper
- The list could go on…
It can be exhausting.
I once read an article that said to be financially successful you should have seven forms of income. I had just graduated from college and I cringed. The idea of working a full time job from 8-5 overwhelmed me. How could I add six other jobs into my life.
Being a little older and a little wiser, I better understand what the writer meant. Maybe one form of income is just a few thousand dollars a year, but all of those thousands add up to make big differences in your families bottom line and possibilities. Read more about creating multiple streams of income here.
So that is what I have been up to. MommyWurking. My husband recently started a new job. I still have my full time job, I also teach as an adjunct professor once or twice a year, I do consulting work on the side, I am a skin care consultant for Rodan + Fields and I just started representing ONEHOPE. All of these are great ways to bring in a little extra money and what goes better with great skin than wine. Especially a wine that gives 50% of the profits to charity. Now that is a vice I can get behind. One thing is for sure, no matter what extra streams of income you develop you need to believe in them. If you believe in the causes or products you enjoy the business and it doesn’t feel like work!
