PTM 009 – Making Extra Money as a Freelance Writer and Work At Home Mom with Stephanie Christensen of

Part Time Money PodcastIn this episode of the Part-Time Money podcast, we talk with Stephanie Taylor Christensen. Stephanie is a work at home mom who runs her own freelance writing business. Stephanie left a corporate career when her son was born and has since been pursuing a freelance writing career in her spare time. She also teaches yoga once a week, which pays for her gym membership and child care. In the podcast, she spends some time taking about how to become a freelance writer, even when you have a child at home. Here’s more from Stephanie:

I am a home-based freelance writer and yoga instructor–all conducted on the side while raising my son! I also founded Wellness On Less, a site dedicated to inspiring people to discover their best lives when they prioritize both how they spend their money and time. It is quite a juggling act, but proving quite lucrative. I’d love to share my tips and experiences with your listeners.
