Crystal Paine is the author of the popular Money Saving Mom website and a featured speaker at many homeschool conventions. I heard about her website several years ago at a homeschool conference, and I discovered that she provides practical, realistic tips that an average mom can actually follow. Her inspiration and ideas seem attainable, and her personal stories and examples prove that a real mom can implement them. Crystal provides specific and practical advice for mom bloggers who are just getting started or who need to revamp their strategies for marketing themselves–and there are ideas for other avenues of income for the non-blogger as well, such as selling items on Etsy. Crystal’s overriding message throughout the book is that we all have something valuable to offer. She provides strategies for getting there, but we are not measured by our successes or failures:
“You have a unique perspective, experience, and insight that can bless and impact others in a way that someone else with a different story might not be able to…Allow the following words to sink in. I am enough. I was created for a purpose” (p. 160).
