I knew I wanted to write about our family and my experiences as a mom, and if I could make a little money that would be cool.

I read so many articles about how bloggers were making thousands of dollars each month with a mom blog, and how easy it was to do the same.

I will be the first to tell you that it’s not easy, and success does not happen overnight, or even in a few weeks, or months!

So is blogging worth it?! Heck yes! ?

I love that I have my blog to turn to, whenever I want to vent about something annoying, or share something really cool.

And guess what…I do make money too!

I don’t make a full time income…yet…but I do make plenty of extra cash to throw at my mountain of student loan debt.

I think a blog is the perfect work at home job or side hustle for a busy mom.

hi! I'm shannon

I’m a wife, mom of three, doctor, and blogger! In 2018, I decided to turn my mom blog, into a personal finance blog so others could follow along on our journey to pay off over HALF a MILLION dollars in student loan and practice start up debt. I hope you enjoy following along, and maybe even find some inspiration along the way.
