Why I Spend Money to Make Money

After posting my latest income report I received an email from a reader asking me why I spend money to make money now when in the beginning I was all about not spending any money to earn my income. This email really made me sit back and think because she is absolutely correct. So, I thought it was time for me to clarify it to everyone.

Yes, it is 100% possible to make money online as a work at home mom without spending any money at all. I did so for about six months or so and I earned enough money to be able to cover my bills. However, now I have more goals in place and by the summer time I want to be able to reach a goal of making around $10,000 a month. So, in order for me to do this at a quick pace and not work myself to death I felt it was time for me to start investing money.

What Are You Spending Money On?

I want to clarify the point that I am not spending money to obtain my jobs. Instead I am spending money on tools to make my life easier. I will by memberships to have access to certain tools that help my work flow.  I also have spent money in different places for advertising; to have work completed on my other blog Giveaways 4 Mom, and just other random internet things.  Some of the money I have spent, such as my investment last month, was a bad move. However, I didn’t cry over spilt milk, I just learned my lesson and moved on. As the months progress if the new tools that I am using turn out to help me increase my income I will be sharing them with those who are subscribed to my blog. So, far one investment has worked really well while two others I don’t think are a good fit for me.

Do You Spend Money To Make Money?

The reason I started spending money on various tools was because other online workers, work at home moms, were doing so and they are bringing in the type of money I dream of making. So, in order for me to make my dream a reality I thought it would be a good idea for me to start doing so to. As many of you already know I have added on some other income sources outside of my writing business and in order for these avenues to work I felt it was time for me to start investing some money to increase my productivity.

  1. I have spent quite alot for blogging and I haven’t made much back but I am hoping that the harder I work that I will start to make money. I bought a theme for my blog I also pay for hosting on my blog. There isnt a lot of things you can get for free. Sometimes it takes a little money to actually start making money

  2. Capitalism at it’s best!! I have found through the years that when I invest, I get much more in return! After all… like they say, nothing is free! Good post 🙂

  3. wow thats a big goal! Hopefully you’ll accomplish it – will keep you in my prayers 🙂 We’re trying to find different ways of making money online too – I know it’s no easy task so investing in helpful tools is probably a really great idea!
