 How to Create a Website?wordpress-website

First, you need to find a reliable, non-expensive, Website Hosting Platform like:

  • WordPress
  • Wix
  • GoDaddy and more

Most of these hosting platforms have a Free Website option, which is always good when you are just starting out because there are No Costs involved.

There are thousands of website themes you can choose from, but when you go with the Free website option and not a paid one, you will have limited access, meaning, you only can choose from a half a dozens or so.

Which is still pretty good, though. Continue reading How to Create a Website

Why do Women stay at Home?

Be & Stay Empowered!


Why do women stay at home and what is the most reason for this? The answer in many cases would be due to pregnancy, childbirth and raising children. Here are some statistics from

 How many Stay-at-Home Moms does America have?

According to, about 5 Million in married-couple family groups in 2013. 24% of married-couple family groups are with children under 15 years of age. This number went up by 3% from 21% in 2000.

In comparison with other moms, the stay-at-home mom in 2007 was:

  • Younger, 44% of women were under the age of 35 compared with 38% of moms in the labor force = a difference of 7%
  • Hispanic, 27% compared with 16% of moms in the labor force = a difference of 11%
  • Foreign-born, 34% compared with 19% of moms in the labor force = a difference of 15%

Without a high school diploma, 19% versus 8% of moms in the labor force = a difference of 11%

More numbers:  There are about 10 million of Single Moms in America living with children younger than 18 years of age in 2013. This went up by 3.4 million since 1970.

Other possible reasons why women stay-at-home

In 98% of families, it is a woman who will stay at home with the children. No questions asked. The assumption that this is the case leads to some (common) theories:

  • Women are better suited as a caregiver, therefore they have more of an interest in staying at home
  • Women still earn less money than men (in most cases) and if it becomes an issue to take care of the children because a babysitter is unaffordable than the woman will quit her job without much resistance
  • Unfortunately, we are still living in a society that will see mothers (this is still the norm) staying at home rather than fathers, no questions asked why
  • Women are more guilt driven if it comes to the question if both parents are working may have a negative impact on their children and therefore will quit their job easier than a man would do
  • Men are still being seen as the main breadwinner and feel mainly guilty if they can afford their women to stay at home with the children, because their income alone may not support the family.
  • Religious and societal expectations can make it hard for a woman to join the labor force period
  • Women also will likely take care of a disabled family member or due to an illness of a loved one and therefore will stay at home.  No questions asked.

There is an advantage too for  women to stay- at- home

Unfortunately, most women won’t see the advantage in what being a stay-at-home mom can bring to them and that it isn’t a total loss of not being out there with other women joining the labor force.

There are 3 basic steps for women to learn to make money from home and I will show you what they are.

I am a woman (obviously) and I also have implemented these steps to build my own online business with the opportunity in working from home.

The last part is very important to me because I have an elderly person to take care off and going to work, by leaving the house for hours, isn’t an from home

If your are in a similar situation but love to have something you can build a career from it then you need to do these 3 basic steps I am showing you, and you will be soon in the fast lane to success.

Here are the 3 basic steps

Find something you are passionate about and already have a profound knowledge off and want to share it, or perhaps want the rest of the world to know what are your thoughts about a certain subject and like to blog about.  All these things are called a “niche”.  


There is no limit in doing so. It can be anything from A: writing about Automotive to Z: writing about Zen-Meditation and then there is everything in between. Only the sky is the limit.


You can find lots of websites on the internet which are Free to join.

They have pre-created themes where you only have to add your content and you are ready to go. Web sites, who can be joined for Free are, or, just to name a few.

If you do your research on the internet you will find even more free stuff. Take your time in choosing the right one, build your website according to your niche and let the world know what you have to offer.



To promote your business requires a great, sustainable and reliable, no scam platform. To find a program like this which can help you to reach out to your targeted audience is nowadays a bit of a challenge.

Too many scam artists are out there which will promise you the Moon but instead want only your hard earned money. If you like to know more about Scams and how to avoid them, read here.

These 3 basic steps to learn to make money from home are really essential if not crucial to your success. It might be a bit intimidating at first when you think about it, especially if you haven’t done anything like this in the past.

But even though you are a newbie to online marketing, you can and you will succeed if you have the desire and the determination to have an online business.

Desire and determination can only be brought from you, only YOU
