Are you a stay-at-home mom looking to become a work-at-home mom? Or perhaps you are already a WAHM who is wanting to grow your mompreneur fempire. I’m created a list of resources to help you with your journey to mompreneurship.
I am in a few work from home groups on Facebook and everyday, someone is looking for work from home jobs. Most of the posting are work from home opportunities. Big difference! Opportunities sometimes (I use that word gently) do require a startup fee of some sort. The fee usually is for a kit to get your opportunity (better know as YOUR BUSINESS) off the ground. It’s your investment into being your own boss and starting your mompreneur journey.
Many people who want to work from home want to get a job, not opportunity. Yes, those work from home jobs are out there. I’ve found them and work them. This post however, is more about the opportunity. Becoming your own boss, being a mompreneur, working your own hours, and being in charge of your income. If you hustle, put in the work you will see the progress. If you wait for the income to just fall in your lap, well, you’ll be waiting. Unless you inherit a shit ton of money.
I’m sharing with you the resources, I have found along the way in my mompreneur journey that have been helpful. FYI, some of the links may be affiliate or referral links (the links are pink), which means I will receive a small commission (money for a cup of coffee from a popular coffee shop) if you make a purchase.
The first opportunity I’m going to share, is my affiliate program. It’s a way to earn some extra income and/or starting point to being a influencer. Great for those moms who have blogs. You earn a commission for each sale that is generated from your unique link. There is no startup cost, no inventory, no quota.
One thing all entrepreneurs have in common is the want to learn. Books are accessible to everyone and it doesn’t require you have make time in your schedule. You can read while waiting at the doctor’s office or while waiting for one of the kid’s sporting events to start. I’m listing a couple books I have read and a couple that are on my list of book that I need to read.
As a mompreneur, I want to have the tools available to me to run my business with ease. Here are my favorites!

Affiliate Marketing Programs
I wrote a post on affiliate programs and they are worth the mention again. As they are great stepping stone for getting your feet wet. This was one of the first ways I started to monetize my blog Life of Creed. Affiliate marketing programs is great for you to earn passive income. Now, this is not get rich quick type of program. This is some extra dollars coming in to help your business run. It’s an added bonus to the other things I have going on in my business. And it can be an the aded bonus you may want for your business.
This is a affiliate marketing network. It’s a great place to start if you are looking to join an affiliate program. There are tons of amazing merchants that you can apply to become an affiliate for.
