I have been following Crystal Paine on her blog, MoneySavingMom.com, for a few years now! I always appreciate the new ideas she presents for saving money for my family and always find myself going back to her site for refreshers as financial situations arise. I've never read any of Crystal's books before, and I was expecting more of a book with ideas on ways to bring in additional income by staying at home, as opposed to a book of ideas on how to run a small business as a mom. But, as a small business owner, I LOVED everything she had to say about following your passions and how to incorporate business into that.
I appreciate the inspiration and encouragement in this book, I devoured chapter after chapter and then ended the book wanting to get the small business I already own, but had let fall to the way-side in our cross-country move, up and running in our new city. Crystal's own stories throughout the book really add a lot, making all her steps and instructions practical and relate-able. I also greatly valued her chapters on giving back - what a revelation for all moms reading to see what a difference they can make outside their homes! If any of my momma friends tell me they are going to start a business - I'll recommend they read this book first :)
I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
Thanks for reading!
