Passive Income - Work from Home

First off, if you’re reading this, you’re at least a little bit interested in starting your own gig and working from home. Or Italy. Or Thailand. Good for you. I can tell you this, it beats having to show up for the 9 to 5. Big time.

Here’s how I know (and with me you will ALWAYS get the straight scoop, no B.S. version)  . . .

I’ve been traveling full time for 6 months now, on the income created by my online businesses. I’m currently living in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico and I’m typing this while sitting on my bed and  looking out the balcony to my backyard. (I’m hearing a compilation of chickens clucking and Ave Maria wafting over from the neighbors.)

I’m going to share with you how this happened and how I got here, and I’ll try to make it quick so you don’t get bored.

First off, please know that I’m nobody special. I have no super powers and can’t even balance a checkbook (not that I would want to). I’m the lady next door, ex-soccer mom, lover of all things chocolate. #boring

About a year and a half ago, I was sitting on my couch in Portland, Oregon. It was winter and I was wishing I was somewhere else. Actually, I was wishing I was EVERYWHERE else. There was a great, big world out there and I wanted to visit it all.

I just needed to figure out how to pay for it. Ugh. Details.

After doing a quick assessment of my skill set, and with a little prompting from my daughter, I decided to open an online shop selling digital illustrations. I’d been an illustrator and product designer for over 30 years, so I thought I could handle that.

That was the humble beginning.

Fast forward 10 months and I had created over 800 products in 10 online shops. It was a WHOLE LOT OF WORK, but I did it.

Then, I sold all my stuff, packed a carry-on suitcase and a backpack and I got on a plane to the Caribbean. I’ve been traveling ever since.

This I know for sure, you can do this too. It just takes commitment, a good plan and a step-by-step system.

Starting an online business is so much easier today than in the past. You don’t have to be tech savvy, you don’t have to be a superstar – you just need commitment and focus. (There’s that ‘C’ word again!)


You can get started right now with Siteground for only $3.95. Cheaper than lunch and a whole bunch more upside!


If you’ve been mulling over the work from home idea and toying with starting a blog, this is the perfect time for you. As in right now. It’s a lot easier than you think and will only take you about 16 minutes. (because 15 just wasn’t that interesting)

The first step in starting your side hustle/could turn into full time business is to have a website. Think about it, what is the first question you ask someone who has a business — “What’s your website?”

It doesn’t matter if you make decorative mason jar candles, teach crochet basics on YouTube or offer an ebook on frugal living — you need a website. It’s home base for all you do.

Lucky for us, getting a website up and running is SO EASY these days. No tech skills needed.

Let’s get started and I’ll walk you through it step by step.

Start Your New Blog & Business in 16 Minutes

Step 1: Grab Your Website on Siteground

Getting started with the right web host is SUPER important. I know this because I did it the wrong way when I started. Learn from your Aunt Kimberly here.

Fortunately, I found Siteground, and they have made it sooo easy to get started.

I suggest you go with the StartUp plan, which is only 3.95 a month. Such a deal!

Step 2: Name Your Blog

Once you sign up with Siteground you get to name your new business!

This is the FUN part! Choose a name you love and that feels good. The only suggestions I’ll make here are make sure it’s easy to say and easy to spell. You want to make sure people can share about you and be understood.

A little note: Don’t stress too much about picking ‘just the right name’. I’ve seen blogs and businesses with the weirdest names be super successful. Your popularity is going to be about what you offer, not what your name is.

Step 3: Complete Your Info

Fill out your information and BOOM! you’re done! (bet that was LESS than 16 minutes)

As a side note, I only pay for the monthly plan of $3.95 — so there’s no need to choose the annual plan if you don’t want to.

Step 4: Install WordPress

Now all you have to do is click the 1-Click Installer for WordPress and you’re off to the races!

Once you have WordPress installed on your site, you’ll have lots of Free Themes to choose from. If you want to upgrade to a premium Theme, I really suggest DIVI by Elegant Themes. It’s easily the first choice of the serious blogger I know, and with it’s easy drag and drop builder, you can have a site up in no time. I use it and I love it.

Step 5: Go Brag to Someone

You can be as proud as a 3-Tennis-Ball Pup!

This is the part where you go tell your significant other, your best friend, or the dog how much you just got done.

And from me, a BIG congratulations! Really. Take a moment and appreciate yourself. It’s an important beginning and you should be proud.
