Our goal is to get you going where you need to go, so you can be successful in all you do.
Can I share a story with you?
… I knew from age 6, I was going to be a stay at home mom, period, end of story. I knew growing up I was going to have 6 children with one set of twins.
I talked about it, dreamed about it, and drew pictures of it. I knew I was going to take them to the local “Stretch and Sew” and make them clothes, I was going to volunteer at school, I was going to play with them, take them to the park, and I was going to be the best mom on the planet. I was going to be just like my mom!
I remember in 3rd grade the teacher asked us to write a few paragraphs about what we want to be when we grew up. So I of course said a stay at home mom. The teacher laughed at me, the students laughed at me, even the chalk laughed at me.
I was told I needed to come up with something “real” to do with my life.
Did that crush my dreams? Absolutely not! I said, fine I will be a powerful business woman and a stay at home mom.
My mom was a work at home mom, and managed to care for us amazingly well, provide enough money for her obsessions (crafts, stamps, gifts for EVERYONE, lots and lots of gifts, meals out and everything else she loved doing).
Whether she worked because she loved it or did it because she needed the money, I don’t know, but she did a great job being her!
TOOLS That WORK: Using the WAHM Business Ideas for Your Personal Success!
This website is about how these WAHM business ideas and plans have worked for me and 1000’s of other women.
I am going to share with you my experiences, how-to’s, do’s and don’ts. I will provide you with the best, the latest, and the “you can do it” tools to get you going in the right direction. Because I have 25 years of experience of being a WAHM/SAHM I’ve got plenty of tools under my belt – and long to share with you.
Everything that I will share will be my own personal experiences, how I did it and worked for me. Additionally, I will share what I learned in books, on the job training, and school.
Although what works for one person, doesn’t always work for another, still you will see my passion for you to succeed at being a WAHM by using my WAHM Business Ideas and Tools!
Working at home and having your children with you is one of the greatest, most beautiful gifts you can give them – and yourself.
SAHM/WAHM is a Thankless Job, But…
Most of the time you won’t be thanked by your children or husband, you may not even be thanked at all. Awards won’t be given out with your name on it, and you may not be nominated "Best Mom in the World" and that’s okay.
Just remember, you are sowing into your kid’s life and their future – something that no one else can do. Only you can be your kid’s mom. You know what is best, you know what they should and should not do, and you know how to care for them the right way.
There will be plenty of days where you long to be like the working women, dressed in suits, having business lunches, traveling to Europe to save a multimillion dollar deal...
...because when you look in the mirror all you see is vomit stains on your shoulder, pink slippers on your feet and un-brushed teeth at 3:30 in the afternoon.
Remember, stay focused on the dream! Studies show that 60% of those women long to be YOU but can’t! We are a WAHM and are proud of it!
During all of my children’s life I was a stay at home mom (SAHM), a work at home mom (WAHM), or a take my kids to work mom. In the last 25 years, I had a day care that was top earning in that county, and was on board of directors, I went to school got my bachelors and ½ master’s degree (MDiv), (now working on my 2nd master’s (MMin), with plans for a doctorate)...
I put both my daughter and me through school with all my own earnings, paid for my son to be in a military school, I opened 4 stores that grossed 1.5 million per year, and I have an international domestic violence organization that helps 100’s of 1000’s of women each year. Wrote my first book Hurt No More! A Journey of Healing from Abuse – the pride and joy of my life.
All which I did not borrow, go into debt, or have anyone loan me money. On top of that, I had a jewelry store (got robbed, closed down), a pearl designer (wrong product, wrong season, closed doors), did other jewelry businesses – all flopped, and a bunch of other businesses that flopped and a divorce that my husband took all my assets – some may call it: failure.
Failure or School of Hard Knocks: How WAHM Business Ideas Began
I, however, have never looked at my failed businesses as failures; I look at them as learning experiences, training grounds, school of hard knocks, and a wealth of knowledge that has positioned me to live the life I have always wanted – which was to be a stay at home mom (SAHM).
I am where I am at because of each of those businesses.
I learned how to use what I had, to do what I wanted.
Let me say that again, I used the money I had (more-like pocket change), the “stuff” in my house, the knowledge I already had, and the firm dedication to achieve what I wanted – and you can too.
My kids were with me all the time, they went to work with me, they traveled with me on all my business trips, (well, all but one business trip), they were very much a part of my life, and I was very much a part of their life.
I was able to be a noon-duty aid so I’d see my kids during lunch, I went on field trips, made it to EVERY school program, sports practice, church activities, and was able to volunteer for many, many, many events that took place during those years.
Many years, I even took off the whole summer and trusted my employees to do all the work.
My goal is to provide you with enough Super WAHM business ideas to help you do that too. You may not want to have 4 stores (AKA headaches) or an international organization with 33 people under you, but rather you want just enough money to pay the bills with a tad extra – and that is okay.
This is about you, and only you, and what your goals are.
I’m just going to give you a vast amount of WAHM business ideas that can help you with starting a home business.
So are you ready to create the perfect work at home mom plan and use the WAHM business ideas to get you thinking about starting a home business that is right for you and your family?
Great! Let’s begin in the “Goal” section.
Here you will start to think, visualize, plan, and prepare your future.
Without strong WAHM business ideas and planning tools you will waste 1000’s of hours per year following bunny trails, wasting time reading everyone’s plan to success, watching hundreds of YouTube’s, reading Facebook, updating Twitter, and loosing precious time that you don’t have.
Starting a home business and using these WAHM business ideas takes long, firm and dedicated devotion to get off the ground. Please use the tools to help you build a strong and healthy foundation that will grow years and decades from now.
I’m going to recommend you start by committing one month to this website.
And every time you start reading, follow rabbit trails, waste hours surfing the internet, think of me, Kelly, your mentor saying, “Loved one, is this moving you towards your dreams of being a work at home mom and starting a home business or away from it?”
“Is it really adding value to your future or are you just wasting more time?”
Put a Post-it note on your computer saying those two sentences.
I want you to trust me, I can get you to where you want to go… if you will follow the advice and WAHM business ideas – in the order I recommend.
You may be thinking: if I don’t do something, anything right now to make money today, I am going to lose it all. Trust me, I can help with that too – unless you are living in a cardboard box – then I recommend you seek other help. Outside of that scenario, I can help you!
Don't want to start with WAHM business ideas first? I know you’ll be tempted to jump ahead, and not do the organizational tools, time management tools, or use the WAHM Business Ideas, Tools and Plans but I promise you, successful men and women succeed because they follow proven tools.
If you are tempted to jump ahead, go ahead, but just return to finish the step-by-step plans and WAHM business ideas and step by step program listed below.
But don’t, not do it. Remind yourself you are worth it and so are your kids.
P.S. I also need to set the stage correctly. I was not a perfect mom, I did not do everything right. I used to say, “Well that’s going to cause another year in therapy – don’t worry, I’ll cover that one too.”
I was a stay at home mom who: did the best I could, with the tools I had, and that’s all that your kids want. They want a mom to be there when they wake up and when they’re picked up from school, they want to tell you about their day, and what little Timmy did this day.
They want you to push them on the swing, telling them stories of your past, and to be tucked in to bed.
In short, they want you. They won’t remember the gifts, the travels, the trips to Disneyland.
But they will remember you putting a smiley face on their napkin (or love letter in their lunch boxes, as I would do), letting them help make dinner – because you needed more time with them, sitting and doing homework together, reading that “just one more book,” before bed, sitting at the ball field and yelling “Run! You’re doing great! I’m so proud of you,” while giving them a high-five, or playing on the floor with cars or Barbie’s.
Kids want quality time and will remember it for a life-time.
I gave my kids that and what I have gotten back is love, them wanting to be with me, appreciation for all I’ve done, and being a part of their lives! Now that is success!
P.P.S. Now, if you ask them it might be an entirely different story… But, I’m sticking to this one! :0).
P.P.P.S. Is being a stay at home mom easy? Are using all these WAHM business ideas easy? Absolutely not! It’s the hardest job on the planet. I did a calculation once and if we were paid for all we’ve done throughout the year – we’d be earning $1.9 million per year! But your wealth comes not from money, but from the fruit of your labor – your children rising up and calling you blessed (Psalms 31).
