“How can I work from home? What would I do?”
I’ve heard those words countless times before.
So many people would love to work from home, but they only know of a couple of ways they can do it — MLMs being one of them.
But there are a practically unlimited number of ways to earn money from home from working as a virtual assistant to proofreading to developing websites!
And none of those ways involve bugging your friends and family to buy from you!
Take Kristine, for example. She was already working from home as an online ESL teacher, but it wasn’t really her passion. She just didn’t know what else was out there for her. Through Work-At-Home School, Kristine was introduced to blogging and found she loves it!

Q: Hi, Kristine! Tell us a little about your background. What did your life look like before Work-At-Home School?
Before WAHS, I was a homeschooling stay-at-home mom with a side hustle as an online ESL teacher. My husband was the one bringing home our main household income, and I added a little bit of income with my part-time job.
It felt great to have found a job that I could do from home to bring in a little extra money, but it wasn’t really what my heart desired to do long-term. I never thought of the possibility of there being “more” out there — more money, better opportunities, the ability to be my own boss, etc.
Q: Half the battle is knowing that you have options! What action(s) did you take as a result of being in Work-At-Home School?
WAHS gave me so many options and avenues to explore, and I was so excited by all of the possibilities of making an income from home. Ultimately, I decided to start a blog as my work-at-home business.
Q: That’s awesome. My work-at-home career really took off when I started my first blog, Proofread Anywhere. What was your favorite course or resource from Work-at-Home School and why?
I loved ALL of the courses from Work-At-Home School and found a tremendous amount of value in each one. But I think the one that I loved the most was Michelle Schroeder-Gardner’s Beginner’s Guide to Affiliate Marketing.
That was the course that helped me get my blog into money-making mode. I literally knew nothing about affiliate marketing before the course, so it was extremely helpful in showing me how to get started.
Note from Caitlin: The courses included in Work-At-Home School may change from year to year. See what courses are included this year here!
Q: What was the most challenging part of getting started?
The most challenging part of getting started was actually choosing the path I wanted to take!
Honestly, when I enrolled in Work-At-Home School, I already had an idea in my mind about which type of online business I would be starting. But then, after digging into all the course materials, I realized that there were a TON of different ways to make money online!
I had a really hard time choosing which path I wanted to take because this whole new world of possibilities had opened up for me. In the end, I surprised myself by choosing blogging as my path, as that was not something I had considered before. Making a choice as to what type of business to build was a tough decision, but I am so happy that I chose blogging — and I have Work-At-Home School to thank for that!
Q: I’m glad we were able to show you what’s out there and help you find the right fit for you! What is the most valuable thing you learned from taking Work-At-Home School?
The most valuable thing I learned from taking Work-At-Home school was that ANYONE can earn money from home. Literally anyone.
All of the courses showed real people making real money in their online businesses. And they all started out right where I was — wanting to work from home, eager to learn, and willing to gain the skills needed to succeed.
Work-At-Home school inspired me by the course creators’ successes, and gave me the jump start I needed to start my own online business.
Q: That’s so true! No matter what your circumstances, there are options out there for everyone. How long did it take you to recoup the cost of the course?
It took me a while to recoup the cost of the course. However, I knew that I chose an online business path that had more of a long-term end game. Blogging is not a get-rich-quick type of business, and I knew right from the start that it would take some time to build a solid foundation before any money came in.
A couple of months after I enrolled in Work-At-Home School, and after I had taken several of the WAHS courses, I started my blog, Smart Living Mama. A few months later, I had made my first tiny bit of income, and I was thrilled! Something I created online was actually making me money!
Within a few more months, I had more than made back the investment I made in Work-At-Home School, and my income has only grown from there.
Q: Congratulations! Your blog is beautiful and so helpful! Would you recommend Work-At-Home School? Is it worth the money?
Yes, absolutely! Work-At-Home School is packed with tons of great information all in one place, and it was exactly what I needed to get started with my own work-at-home business. It taught me about several different kinds of work-at-home opportunities and helped me to decipher which opportunity was right for me. I highly recommend it!
Q: What does your life look like now?
I am still a wife and a homeschooling stay-at-home mom, but now I can officially call myself a blogger as well!
Blogging has changed my life — I have a creative outlet on my own platform, I am my own boss, and I’m bringing in money by working from home doing something I love to do!
Q: Is there anything else you’d like to share with the WAHS community?
My biggest message to the WAHS community: You absolutely CAN work from home!
I still pinch myself sometimes and wonder where I would have been had I not enrolled in Work-At-Home School and not learned about blogging. Like I said above, blogging wasn’t even something I had considered before taking this course.
And now here I am, making money online doing something I thoroughly enjoy — all while being able to stay home with my kids. If I can do it, then you certainly can too!
I love that Work-At-Home School led Kristine to something she had never even considered before! There are so many different opportunities out there. And you may end up doing something that wasn’t even on your radar. Kristine was open to suggestions and that’s really paying off for her now! Congratulations, Kristine!
