Making Money as a Stay at Home Mum | Win a Copy of ‘Give it a GO’ by Sonia Williams

A few days ago I was watching “Housewife Superstars” on 60 Minutes which looked at how more and more women are dropping their careers and going back to being stay at home mums to look after their kids and husbands. Some families are able to get by just fine on one income but others may struggle to get by on one income and that is something that was working on me for a minutes. That was until Sonia Williams came along and we got to know more about her and what she does.

Sonia worked as an accountant but when her family came along, returning to work wasn’t easy. Her decision to become a stay at home mom brought on the need to supplement the family income and she set up a small business that specialised in wedding photography. The business was very successful and after being asked the same sort of questions by budding “mum entrepreneurs”, she wrote Show Mummy the Money which outlines how mums can find the right idea, turn it into a reality and start a small business. Besides her book, her site Show Mummy the Money has a wealth of information on where you can get help on starting a business.

Sonia’s latest book “Give it a GO” What have you got to lose? with the tagline ‘how you can make money in the new economy’ is something very fitting in this economic climate where so many of us are looking to make some extra money. The book delves into the world of the direct selling industry and reveals the keys to unlocking the opportunities that the industry has to offer. Sonia has done all the hard work and interviewed hundreds of distributors in the industry and you can learn from the real life success stories featured in the book. This ‘hidden industry’ has been the key to financial freedom for many people around the world and there is nothing stopping you from achieving the same success.

    Hey Gerri, Thanks for the visit. I wish I could enter your contest to have a go at getting the book by Sonia Williams “Give it a Go”. My Twitter is not working right now and I’m really just waiting for it to expire or for the “Big Bird” to stop the account then I can get a new one. But anyways I have heard a lot about this book and the great info that one can get out of this little book. I guess I might have to go to Amazon and check it out on my own. Thanks for the info on this book and the post. JJ

    I subscribed! I like the “what do you have to lose” part. I feel like my life is finally starting now that I’ve adapted that motto. We’re living on one income and I’m starting up my own businesses because I don’t want to work for somebody else. We don’t have kids yet so it’s not as if either of us have anything to lose, just a lot to gain, by taking chances!
