The Face Behind Tried and True Mom Jobs


Hey TTMJ Readers!

Thanks for visiting our site.
I’m Whitney and I started this website when I became pregnant with my second child.  I already had my 2-year-old son and I was missing out on so much of his life, I made it my mission by the time I had my daughter that I would quit my job and stay home and raise my kids.
Climbing the corporate ladder didn’t matter anymore, being there for my kids did.
We were living on a two-household income, so before I could quit my job I had to find a way to supplement my income.
I began looking for ways to make money from home online that moms were doing today (so I could know it was real) but I couldn’t find ANYTHING!
After months of frustration and a short timeline before I had my daughter, I decided to reach out to work at home moms and interview them to see what they did, how they do it with kids, how others could get started and most importantly how much they earned. I documented everything and created this website to share their stories for moms like me.
Through this process, I found blogging. Blogging is the absolute best way to make money from home, to me, because most of it is passive income and I get to really “be there” for my kids.
I figured out how to get my articles to rank well on Google and because of that I’m always getting traffic to my website because people are ALWAYS searching for things on Google which means I am ALWAYS making money through ads and affiliate marketing. I go in great detail on how it all works here.
But Blogging does take A LOT of work and it’s really not for everyone so I’m so glad I have the opportunity to interview some amazing women and men to share their stores on how they make money from home. There should be something for everyone on this website. You can check out our most popular article on ways to make money from home here.
In my articles, I always give you the tools and resources you need to get started because it’s what I’d want someone to do for me. I hope you find something on this site to discover a new way to make money from home and start new or multiple streams of income. 
Quick side note: You may see in some comments that I used to refer to myself as Max (Maxine is my middle name) when I launched this blog because I didn’t want my employer at the time to know I wanted to quit my job so I was trying to be incognito. Thankfully since I was able to quit my job I am finally FREE and can be ME, Whitney.
Anywho I wish you all of the best and if you have any questions about anything please don’t hesitate to ask in the comment section below. Please note: We do not accept any guest posts.

    Whitney, thank you for doing all this incredible work. You have given me the courage to continue my dream of being a work-at-home mom. Your blog was the first time I saw what was possible. So, thank you. ❤️, Robin.

      Thank you so much, this means the world to me! If I only encouraged you, then doing this was all worth it.

    Thank you for your blog. A few weeks ago, I was searching the internet for stay-at-home jobs. I was searching for my husband to make some extra income. Your website came up on the first page! I read it over and over on how to create a blog, so I decided to take the plunge and do one myself. Your information was very detailed and gave the exact steps to create a blog. With five homeschooled kids, I am working on my content as much as I can. I looked on your website today and saw the face behind it all! Thanks

    Hi Whitney,

    I stumbled upon your website by accident while doing a search for legit work at home jobs for moms. Finding your site was one of the best “finds” I’ve come across. Your wonderful website is packed full of honest and safe advice as well as great job opportunities that I wasn’t aware of until I found this blog. I feel inspired and confident after reading some of your articles and after I saw you and your lovely family on the bio page, I knew I was in the right place. You really are inspiring and seeing a woman of color (like myself) with this fabulous blog is even more amazing. Thanks for what you do. Wishing you continued success and may you be safe in all your life travels and may people be kind to you in your day.

    I love your page Whitney! I am not a mom but would like to be in the near future and I already know that with some hard work and lots of dedication, I will build my blog to what I want it to be so I can quit my job and stay at home too with my future kids.
    Thank you for being so true and open about the process! <3
