Earlier today, I had a short chat with the mother of one of my daughter’s classmates. We exchanged stories about our kids and their development during the school year. The conversation became more personal when she asked me what my husband and I do for a living. When I mentioned that we are both freelancers and we work from home, she was astounded in disbelief.
I told her that I am a blogger and a freelance writer while my husband is a freelance graphic artist doing some face painting jobs on the side. She admitted she had been hearing about work-from-home stuff and she has been doing research on how to make money online but she cannot start with it because there are many questions left unanswered. She was glad she had the chance to talk to me and she asked me more questions about our how we get clients and make money online.
I willingly shared some information and taught her how to make money online through blogging and writing articles. Furthermore, I also taught her other means to earn online, such as paid surveys, pay-per-click sites, affiliate marketing, foreign exchange, and online selling.
We were both happy when we parted ways because she learned something from me, some of her questions were answered, and the clouds of doubts were cleared. At the same time, I was also glad and thankful to God because I became an instrument to help somebody earn money while staying at home.
