About the Author
Crystal Paine is a speaker and author of the New York Times bestseller Say Goodbye to Survival Mode. In 2007, she founded, a site that has since grown to become one of the most popular blogs on the web, currently averaging more than 1.5 million readers per month. She lives with her husband and three children in Wichita, Kansas.


Crystal Paine's blog, Money Saving Mom, was one of the first blogs I started following way back when I started blogging myself. She gave a lot of practical advice that was relevant for where I was in my life. So I was thrilled to receive Money Making Mom: How Every Woman Can Earn More and Make  a Difference to review.

I found that this book is one that I highlighted and underlined things in. Mrs. Paine offers practical advice on how to find your talent, market yourself, how to manage your time while building your business, and also how to achieve your goals while allowing yourself to give back to the community and to what you believe in. Mrs. Paine writes in a way that seems like you are sitting down getting advice from your girlfriend over a glass of wine and chocolate.

There was one quote that really resonated with me. Mrs. Paine wrote:  "Successful leaders are those who aren't content with the status quo." (p.136). I have found that maybe I have become too content with how things have been and so I am looking to take steps to step out of that comfort zone and help my family have a better financial future.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking to get out of the status quo and who is looking to expand out into those ideas that all of us moms and women have that we can now think are possible.

The publisher provided me a free copy of this book through Booklook Bloggers program in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
