  1. love this! My husband and I are not expecting, but have been praying for the Lord to guide us in this area. I would love to stay home when that time comes, and I know my husband would love to give me that option. So enjoyed your insight! 🙂

    • You are so smart to think ahead. If you started working on a home-based job, even if it was just something on the side, right now you’d probably have a pretty decent income going by the time you have kids. Don’t discount direct sales as a side-gig either. Those are great to do when you only have a bit of extra time at the end of the day. I just started one in January as a side gig and was shocked at how much money I’ve made in such a short period of time.

  2. Was your husband 100% on board with your decision to quit your job without any clients? I’m currently itching to make the leap but my fiancé is hearing any of it haha

    • He was, but he didn’t want me to have to work away from home when I didn’t want to either. I did a lot of research before hand and I was pretty confident that I could make it work. If I couldn’t, I would have been able to find a job closer to home. I loved my old job but it wasn’t close to home and the extra time away from my son during the commute was making me crazy. It was also cutting into what I was actually bringing home.
