You probably landed on this page because you are having these questions. Here I will share with you the ups and downs of forgoing your steady income and caring for kids at home, so that you will get a glimpse of what is to come should you decide on it.

On top of that, I will also share with you my quest to earn money online, what works and what doesn’t.

We might have chosen to put family first, but that doesn’t means we can’t chase our dream anymore.

In fact, we can dream so high that most people can’t even take that first step that we took- leaving our job, because the opportunity cost is too high for them to forgo their career of working for others. How so? I will explain soon below.

Get to know me…

Before the exciting stuff that I am going to share, allow me to introduce myself a little.

I started my online journey late. I followed the path my parents paved for me, I studied hard and I got a degree. But being a stay at home mom is a wake up call for me, it  makes me realise that a degree is merely a piece of paper when come to managing household. Who need a degree to cook, to clean, or to change diapers?

When people stared at me unbelievably ‘so wasted of your education…’, I tried to tell myself that I am good. But deep down, I feel my self esteem shrinking, I was hoping that I can do more.

And surely I can, after many trials and errors elsewhere I finally started this blog, it is basically like my second home now (virtual one though). I spend most of my time here, and now I live life without a boss that determine my worth, my performance, because I am the boss!

Let me show you how to be your own boss too, stay tuned!

Should I quit my job to be stay at home mom?

My answer: Go ahead if you really want to spend time with your kids (and of course, best is if there is sufficient income in place to support the family). Don’t let the worries of ‘how do I get back to workforce’, ‘I am now financially dependent on my spouse’ hold you back.

How it all begins…

Life always finds a way to thrive, and you can always find a way to achieve your dream.

After being a stay at home mom for a year, I realise that I needed something else in my head other than the laundry, the feeding, the  soiled diapers etc.. so I started to search for work from home job. No luck…

I even attended classes to do forex. The charts went up and down and according to the guru, those charts are going to get you 6 figures monthly income. You can even do so while carrying your daughter on your lap (Erm but seriously? If they click on the wrong buy/sell button won’t he be ended up with 6 figures losses instead?) More about review on Forex trading in this post.

The Forex didn’t go very well either, so I participated in survey, became mystery shopper, sold homemade pastry, joined various cooking competitions etc..I did earn money from there but I consider those merely perks. I can’t earn passive income that way, I can’t enjoy financial freedom doing that!

What do I want

It became clear to me then, what I want is to be able to enjoy stream of income anywhere anytime. When I work, I work hard but when I am not, the income still steaming in while I am sleeping, changing diapers, cooking…

What do you want then?

You probably already have an answer, or you could be still searching for it. But I hope that so far I have helped you to clear your mind a little more.

Now my question to you is, if you have already took a leap of faith to quit your day job to be caregiver at home, are you going to spend your little spare time (while kids napping, or when they are behaving and playing on their own) to start building your online empire, or are you going to waste your time on social media envying other people’s lifestyle?

Back to the question earlier, why many people can’t afford to leave their job to be their own boss?

The answer is simple, we have been educated in school all the time to have the ‘employee mindset’. We are taught to work for others. Have you seen a module in school named’ Earn Money Online and Ditch Your Boss’? No, you need to learn it on your own. It is not difficult, you just lack of guidance, because it is not part of your standard education.

Define Passive Income

Passive income refers to the money that you earn even when you are not actively working.

Define financial freedom

Once your passive income is more than your expenditure, congratulations! You have achieved financial freedom.

But, how to do it ?

There are many ways of doing so, real estate is a good example, buying properties and renting them out for rental fee. But this require capital, and lots of it!

If you have no capital to start with, consider affiliate marketing. Look at those Instagram influencer, blogger, vlogger, they all earn money through advertisement.

Can I get rich quick with affiliate marketing?

No you can’t, and please don’t sign up for anything that promise you to get rich quick. You are probably the prey to make them get rich quick. If you want a reasonable time frame, give it at least 6 months to see any result if you work hard.

I can’t get any sales with affiliate marketing.

That is because you have not learnt the effective way of doing it. Do you think everyone can just pick up any product and be a good salesman instantly? It require training and learning.

So where do you learn it then? There are many free articles online which you can learn tons from it. The only problem is, you are probably already overwhelmed being a beginner in this field, those random snippets of information probably won’t help much and when people are confused, many chose to give up.

So what if I tell you that there is a place for you to learn? You get to learn everything about affiliate marketing, with information being organised and structured from A-Z, making it simple for all of us who are so used to our systematic education system.

I promise there is no bs here, I went through lots of craps and I really want to help you avoiding those.

This is a free starter membership for you, it is totally free, no hidden cost, and no credit card or personal information needed.

You hate it? Just leave the site and never look back, no obligation, no one is going to hassle you to upsell you. You can find many course material here, among them 20 are free, enough to guide you from knowing nothing at all to getting ready a functional Seo optimised website. The community there is amazing, they help each other up, sharing their pains  and gains, to-do and what not-to-do. Think of them as your classmates and seniors.

“The road to success is tough, but it need not be lonely…”

Remember, every expert was once a beginner. Lifelong learning is important.


No matter what stage of life you are at, don’t wait for the perfect time to start your journey, make this moment the perfect time instead. Don’t procrastinate, because one day you will look back and wondering where would you be at if you had taken your first step at this very moment.

With the right tool, and the right mindset, success shouldn’t be far.

Hi, I enjoyed reading your article! You told us your reasons of starting your online business and how you actually did it, which I find it amazing! Not easy for a stay at home mom to sacrifice the little time and energy left for that! 

And as you said, leaving regular job and try some online business is not something being taught to us in school or at home. I actually followed the link to Wealthy Affiliate and i am simply amazed by what I found there. Thank you for your recommendation!

As for me, I think the safest option is to start affiliate marketing when you still have a regular job and when there comes some results then you quit the job. That way we can minimise our financial risk. 

Thanks for sharing with us and keep up the good work!


Thanks for saying that! Glad that you enjoy my review.

This is one of the best times in history for anyone to start their own business.

Starting a business is like having a baby…

If you want to have a baby because you want more time, more money and more freedom, you clearly have never had a baby as that is almost impossible…

If you start a business for more money, more time and money and freedom, then you should probably not start a business as it take massive amounts of time and money to get started.

Having been in business for over 40 years, it is a lifelong passion.

If you are contemplating quitting a job to be a stay at home mom (or dad), I would recommend the following:

1) You have a skill that pays $10,000 a month

2) You have enough money to cover all your costs for at least 12 months

Then you have a good shot at getting going.

Wealthy Affiliate is as the writer states an excellent place to start.

Do not expect overnight results.

Great post!



Well I certainly don’t have the luxury of earning $10k per month before I quit my job, although having that much pay will certainly make everything easier. 


Thank you so much for this post! I think it is very noble for a woman to be willing to quit her job to become the caretaker at home. Too bad few women are willing to do that in this day and age. 

Affiliate marketing is definitely a great way to work from home, but to be honest, it is very challenging and involves a lot of hard work, just like anything worthwhile. But the greatest advantage is that it takes close to zero initial capital to start, which is great news for the great majority of people who are poor and busy making a living. It gives us a chance to start a business with absolutely no money. Sure it takes hard work, so does any business you start with a large amount of money that could go down the drain if the business fails, which is very likely for most startups.

Great post!


Thanks for saying that! It is not an easy decision but on the hindsight, it is probably a blessing in disguise. I wouldn’t have found WA if I haven’t try working from home.
