How Suzi Whitford of “Start A Mom Blog” Makes Money Without Having a Job

Suzi grew an audience online, figures out what they want, creates online products, then she promotes those products. She has been doing this for four years and recently hit the $1 million mark in profit.

What Suzi Was Doing Before and How She Became Successfully Unemployed

Suzi’s father was her biggest role model. He was a civil engineer and she went to school for industrial engineering, because she liked the business side of engineering. Both she and her husband, John, are industrial engineers and that is how they met. They both were on track, and their goal was to become CEO of a company.

They did internships at Disney World, General Electric, Toyota, and other big companies to pave the way to go into management and eventually into a C-level title.

When Suzi and John decided to start a family, she started working from home for GE. She thought this was great, until the baby was born. You can’t really work from home with a baby. She then decided to quit her job and her husband continued working.

Being at home with the baby, she still had the drive to work. There are pros and cons to staying home. She wanted to help out, because her husband was carrying all of the financial burden and they wanted to have a big family.

She started watching CNET and she was listening to all of the stock trading on TV. She decided she was going to be a stock trader. It turned out not to be her thing. She then decided to sell arts and crafts on Etsy, but that didn’t work either.

Finally, she started learning about blogging. She has skills, she is smart, and she was a teaching assistant for her coding class where she helped other students create websites.

Going online, she learned about blogging and affiliate marketing. She started her Catholic parenting blog with affiliate marketing and by getting traffic from Pinterest. Her site started doing well and she was making a couple hundred dollars a month.

Her friends asked her for help on their blogs and they started making money too, so she decided to teach more of her mom friends.

This is how she grew into helping other moms start blogs, and her students are making $2,000 to $10,000 per month. She caters only to moms, because she loves them and she knows the struggles they face.

Last year, Suzi’s husband quit his engineering job at Toyota. They now have three kids and he is working from home on his own website. Her husband does tech reviews and she does blogging.

How to Make Money As A Stay At Home Mom

Start a Website Based on What People are Already Spending Money On

Look for a big affiliate product you can market on your blog that relates to your topic. Topics that are hot right now are portable solar panels, keto diet, tiny houses, and RV camping.

Look for something that is hot and trendy, where people are already spending money. This way you aren’t just blogging about your life. People want to hear about your life, but they also want to hear about them and what is going to help them.

Focus on your story, but intertwine it in a way to help your audience. Go after a topic people are already spending money on, like health, love, money, relationships, happiness, and time.

It is good to do something you are passionate about to an extent. Remember that success drives passion too. Once you are successful at something, you will want to do more of it. At first, if you are trying to leave your job, do something that is profitable.

Once that takes off and is doing well and you can live on it, then focus on something you are passionate about. Especially to make money as a stay at home mom who doesn’t have that much time.
