Amanda5 Stars Out Of 5Money Making Mom by Crystal PaineFebruary 8, 2016AmandaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book has a lot of great tips to help you look outside the box to find a way to earn money. This book is for moms that want to stay at home and work or want to provide an income by creating their own business. Not only does Crystal encourage us woman to work for ourselves. She encourages us to use our own talents.
Giving is a main topic in her book that she attributes giving to her success. She also explains many ways you can give. This book was informative and I received many good tips for myself. I would highly recommend this for moms that would like to earn some money working for themselves. I love that it not only teaches us how we can succeed but it also touches on how to handle any failures that come along.
Laura Rene4 Stars Out Of 5Great heart, great information, a little overwhelming at times but very encouraging!November 16, 2015Laura ReneQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4I'm fascinated by the idea of working at home. Of small businesses. Of women entrepreneurs. Etsy shops make me dance inside. So when I saw Crystal Paine's new book Money Making Mom up for reviewing, I was all about it. The subtitle is even more appealed: How Every Woman Can Earn More and Make a Difference.
P.and I both work for nonprofits. While we're both passionate about our jobs, we're also not climbing the financial ladder (and after seeing kids in Haiti, we're okay with that). Yet someday as God grows our family, we'd like for me to have more time with them at home, whether that mean working fewer hours and staying at home full-time. The crazy reality of this is that as our family gets bigger, our income will get smaller.
Enter this book. Crystal is wonderful at empowering women to seek out their God-given talents, skills, and passions and to use them to create more income for their families. In the past, I've taught CPR classes, piano lessons, braided hair for dance recitals, and babysat. I was interested to see if this book could coach me in utilizing any of those skills (as well as my hobbies of blogging and crafting) in a business down the road.
However, I have mixed feelings on this book. The pros: it's written very well. It's full of step by step guidance and encouragement. Crystal's heart and authenticity is apparent in her writing. The cons: personally, I don't want to grow a huge business that would become a full-time job. I simply want to make some extra money on the side to help our family in the long run. My ideas are somewhat smaller, and the ideas or instructions in the book intimidated or overwhelmed me at times. All in all, I do think it's a great reference, and I will likely use it in the coming years for resources, encouragement, and ideas. I give it four stars.
KellyLTn5 Stars Out Of 5Encouraging Moms to Go For it!November 4, 2015KellyLTnQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I was so inspired by this book! I love how Crystal talks about using your passion and skills to start a business that will benefit your family and those in need. I quickly realized that there are no excuses - lack of time, lack of money, etc. are not reasons to tell yourself that you cannot start a business that will make a difference in your life and others. She gives real life examples of everyday people who have become successful because they are willing to work hard, endure failure, and come out a success on the other side. I highly recommend this book to moms who want encouragement and inspiration to step out in faith in order to contribute financially to their families and make a difference.

What a terrific book for any woman desiring to make more money whether to support herself or to supplement the incoming already coming in. And actually, the title is a little misleading it really is for any woman and not just for moms!
I found this book to be very encouraging to get out there and do something. Yet I also loved how Crystal does not say to try to make money just to be rich and have more but to have a purpose for this income whether to give more or to provide the necessities or even the extras. While I dont believe that every woman needs to have a business or even make money in any capacity, I believe there are a number of reasons savvy home economists should consider looking for ways to increase their families incomesPerhaps you are single or a single mom and are looking to establish more financial security. Or you might be looking for a way to increase your household income to give you some breathing room to be able to enjoy a few vacations or fun family outings each year. Maybe you are a mom whose kids are grown and gone and you are looking for a way to use your skills to make a difference or have more money to give generously.
I felt the entire time I was reading this book that Crystal had just sat down in my family room and was giving me tips and motivation to succeed. She told me of her failures and successes as well as the stories of others and she was so open and candid! Setbacks can discourage and dishearten us if we focus on how far we are from where wed hoped to be. Crystal shares that she has written this book to teach women how to increase their incomes and use it to make an impact, while at the same time maintaining a healthy balance of prioritiesto empower you with practical ideas for starting a business or finding a creative way to make a part- or full-time income. The reality she says is Money doesnt buy happiness. Money doesnt equal fulfillment. Money doesnt solve your emotional problems. Money doesnt give you purpose. But, if Properly stewarded, money can be an amazing tool and a resource for those who need it not only to survive but to live with purpose.
I really enjoyed this book and have put it where I can refer back to it again and again! I felt so encouraged as I read it so I just want to tell other moms to read it too. I highly recommend it! I received Money Making Mom from the author in return for my honest opinion.
RachelWhitehall, PAAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Inspirational and Practical; Creating a Business Plan without Debt and without Being OverwhelmedNovember 3, 2015RachelWhitehall, PAAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This year my youngest child went to kindergarten. I had several ideas floating around in my head about how I could make money but still stay at home.
This book felt like Crystal Paine came over for coffee to help me brainstorm and help me develop business ideas that fit with the time I have and the strengths and skills I already have. The book is peppered with questions for you to stop and think and answer to make her principles personal to your situation so that by the time you finish the book you have a workable business plan.
She illustrates her practical points along the way with bits of her own story and as well as from a smattering of women with a variety of ideas of how they became Money Making Moms.
What sets this book apart from other business books is Crystals emphasize on not just making money as the end goal of your work, but having goals of helping others, giving back, and maintaining a balanced life so you are not overwhelmed and the people in your life still remain your priority.
