How would you like to turn your passion for blogging into a biz, Mama?
Imagine the freedom that comes with working from home. (Hint: you get to choose your own hours, what you do in those hours and who you get to do them with!)
Imagine being able to treat your family to a summer vacation with money earned from your blogging which is something you’d be doing for free anyway!
Imagine successfully designing an income stream that integrates your unique God-given gifts, your unbridled passions, your slightly obsessive interests and a totally glass half full vision of how the world can be.
Now is the time to explore the ways your blog might be the perfect budding work from home gig for you.
You probably have a whole whack of ideas on how to monetize this blog baby of yours but you’re stuck on deciding which one to go with. Then, there’s that voice in your head that keeps whispering that you’re just dreaming. Or your husband’s voice outside your head suggesting you get a real job – whatever that means!
But deep down you know that your blog has the potential to earn at least as much as a part-time wage. If not much, much more.
You just want somebody to tell you what exactly you should blog about for biz already!
Once I decided to go pro with the blog that I’ve been blogging on since 2006 (so I could start contributing to my organic cream habit), I found it tricky to figure out how to make all my multi-passionate pieces fit together in a lucrative, mama-friendly way.
After doing what felt like doing-it-all such as running Etsy shops, selling soaps, teaching online sewing courses, I paid attention to what path was most sustainable as a hands-on, slightly helicopter-y mama. I then decided to get certified as a Simplicity Parenting Coach and a Kaizen Muse Creativity Coach so I could help other moms find peace and flow in their days to enable them to follow their heart’s desire and create their ideal world.
And my ideal world holds the vision of you blogging for biz, Mama – because it’s the best gig ever!
That’s why I created The Blog to Biz Brainstorm to help creative, passionate moms who love to blog discover how they can blog for business too!
Here’s how the Blog to Biz Brainstorm rolls:
It begins with filling out The Calm Before the Blog to Biz Brainstorm Workbook which you can download for free here. Email this back to me and we’ll arrange our scheduled time together. These exercises alone will offer you a huge dollop of insight and clarity on the direction you want to take your blogging efforts on.
We’ll spend 90 minutes together brainstorming away on your business model, blogging themes or work/life balance. You get to choose from three of these specific areas:
- Opt-in idea
- Tagline and Blog URL
- Coaching Packages
- E-course Ideas
- Blog Post Themes and Ideas
- Three Month Blogging Business Plan
- Social Media Plan
- Guest Posting Tactics
- Webinar Ideas
- Niche Clarity
- Competition/Peer Analysis
- List Building
- Biz BFF Matchmaking (introductions)
Within 48 hours of our time together, you’ll receive your customized Brainstorm Aftermath Business Plan: a PDF detailing the key action steps to take specific to each of the three areas we focused on together to see you maintain momentum as you enter the terrain of earning an income stemming from your love of blogging!
The Blog to Biz Brainstorm would be perfect for you if:
- you have been blogging for at least a year now and are ready to take it to the next level
- you are a newbie to blogging but are coming into it with the intention to earn an income and want a business action plan from the get go
- you have a business that needs a blog to grow its reach but you don’t know what to write about or where to even start!
This might not be for you if:
- you are seeking more technical help
- you are not ready to spend money on growing your blog yet
- you would rather figure this stuff out on your own and aren’t too worried about taking longer to meet your income goals
This brainstorm can save you years, not to mention mama blogging rubber, from spinning your tires in posts and strategies that aren’t moving you in the direction of offering true value to your readership and ultimately, bringing home the pasture-raised, nitrate-free bacon.
With my simplicity, creativity, Mama Bliss coaching skills, and years’ experience with different online income streams, we will highlight the ways your passions can fit together to create a lucrative blogging gig that realistically meshes with your family’s season in life.
And speaking of perfect fits, there are a couple of ways we can brainstorm and work together. It simply depends on how much or little support you need to implement the action steps we’re going to craft up for you to make your blogging for biz dreams come true!

I was feeling so excited about creating some products for my business, but super overwhelmed and confused with where to start and what to focus on.

I feel more clear and confident!”

Coaching from Kathy was incredibly helpful in focusing what I really wanted to get out of having my own creative business. I was at a point where I was feeling quite overwhelmed, and having her encouraging voice on the other end helped me to get excited about launching my website.
I really needed the nudge from Kathy, who kept me honest, to get some of my final tasks done, and breaking them down into smaller pieces really helped put it all into perspective. With her simplicity parenting coaching background, Kathy was also able to give me many tips and tricks to carve out the time I desperately needed to create and to recharge my own batteries.”
