Money Making Mom by Crystal Paine *BOOK REVIEW*

I have been reading Crystal's blog Money Saving Mom for years!  I think hers is one of the first blogs I found when I first googled how to save money/be more frugal.  Crystal has really become popular in the blogging, speaking, book writing world.  I have read each of her books and always learn something.  This book did not disappoint me.

I will say this book is geared towards moms who are wanting to make some kind of income from home.  (Disclaimer...I am a registered nurse and have worked in some capacity in the healthcare field since I graduated from IU School of Nursing in 1996)  While I have been working more hours recently (my kids are all in school), this book is full of encouragement and ideas.  Crystal gives practical advice and ways for moms to start earning money from home.  There are several examples of people who have been very successful thinking outside of the box when it comes to making money.

In order to be successful, you have to have a plan and follow through!  Good intentions do not get you very far if you don't take any action.  I think the last 2 chapters of this book are my favorite.  Crystal talks about how we are able to bless others when we have an abundance (whether it's money, clothing, food, time, or other resources).  I have been on both ends of this (giving and receiving), and every time I come away blessed.  Crystal has been blogging for 10 years, and she is a great example of giving to others.  I am glad to be able to share this book with other moms who will be blessed by her words!

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for my review from BookLook Bloggers.  Opinions are mine.*
