Back in September I was blessed to be able to attend my first MOMcon, an annual conference for MOPS leaders. Since I had never been to anything like this, I didn’t really know what to expect. I knew I’d probably learn some golden nuggets of wisdom regarding my new leadership role in MOPS, but I did not anticipate learning much beyond that.
Boy, was I wrong. And I’m so glad I was. I walked away from that conference a changed woman. I came away armed with an arsenal of new ideas and techniques for becoming a better wife, mom, friend, and Christian woman. Going to MOMcon was one of the best things I could have done for myself in this season of my life.
Among the many speakers I had the pleasure of learning from (and meeting!) was a wonderful woman named Crystal Paine. Crystal is a New York Times best-selling author, speaker, business consultant and the founder of the wildly popular blog, MoneySavingMom.com. I had been a fan of hers for a long time and had no idea she would be at this conference so when I realized she’d be speaking, I was thrilled. During her talk, she shared a wealth of information–stuff I believe God wanted me to hear–based on her book Say Goodbye to Survival Mode: 9 Simple Strategies to Stress Less, Sleep More, and Restore Your Passion for Life. I came away from her talk feeling empowered and ready to make some changes in my life.
Fast forward a few weeks and I get a newsletter from MoneySavingMom.com. In it I read that they’re looking for members to be on the launch team for Crystal’s new book, Money-Making Mom. I figured I’d apply, having no expectation of being chosen. Lo and behold several days later I receive an email welcoming me to the launch team! Wait, what?! YAY!
So, I got an advanced copy of Money-Making Mom and I dutifully started reading it. And reading it. And reading it. Y’all, I couldn’t put it down. Not only is the book filled with great advice and relatable real-life stories, it also was yet another message that I feel God wanted me to hear right now.
For months I’ve been itching to do something to contribute to my family’s income. We have a good deal of debt (thanks, law school loans!) and I’d really love to help pay it off before hubby and I are old and gray. This book inspired me to use my gifts and talents to start chasing my dreams of working for myself and helping my family in the process.
- Struggling with getting a business off the ground
- Wishing you could find a mentor to hold your hand
- Wondering whether there’s a way for you to earn more
