When my husband and I decided it was time to expand our family (with babies – not puppies this time) I knew I wanted nothing more than to be a stay at home mom. But we were not in a place financially where we could make that happen. That’s when I started looking for a different route.
Finding a good paying stay at home job is harder than you think. That’s why I started researching affiliate marketing on Pinterest. After looking through all the different affiliate marketing programs, I landed on ShareASale. Mainly because I liked the companies that I could market for, I knew a lot of them and had used a lot of them myself when I ran a hobby lifestyle blog years before.
Fast forward to 7 months later when we finally saw those two pink lines! Our daughter would be due in March and my affiliate marketing was still in the “research” phase. Has anyone ever tried to start a side hustle while working full time and growing a human inside of you? It’s not for the faint of heart, that’s for sure.
When March rolled around, I had a plan in place. While my little girl was awake, she would get my undivided attention. While she was asleep, I would use my Pinterest account to market my favorite products on ShareASale. Honestly, I’d probably spend that time on Pinterest anyway!
Now we are just about to my little ones 1st birthday *cue the tears* and signing up for ShareASale was one of the best decisions I’ve made. I type this on my phone while my little girl sleeps next to me. And that is my full time job! Not only am I contributing to the family income, but I am showing my daughter that you can be a present mother and create your own career.
