Welcome to Smart Cents Mom! My name is Ashleigh. I am married to my best friend Ryan. A #BoyMom to Max, Abe, and Jake. I started this blog in 2016 (just weeks before Jake’s due date) after I started making legitimate money working online. It is my passion to help moms (and dads!) find legitimate ways to work a flexible job from home. I have shared hundreds of ways to make money from home as a contributor to CBS New (local station), Mom Source Network, EmmaLeeBates.com, and The Practical Saver.
Before becoming a stay at home mom, I spent 10 years working in public education as an elementary school teacher and instructional coach. After my second son was born my husband and I decided that our family would best benefit from me being home and I couldn’t imagine myself leaving my boys to go back to work. Since then I have been searching far and wide to find the very best flexible online jobs to help other moms find a work life balance that works for their family.
Maybe you are here to find a way to make extra money to help your family pay for the extras in life…like after school activities, summer camps, eating out, vacations, or maybe just a nice bottle of wine!
Or maybe you’re here because you NEED a career change. You want freedom from the cubicle. You don’t want to feel chained to your desk and miss out on getting to visit your kids for lunch at school, attend field trips, or be the one to pick them up when they get off the school bus.
Smart Cents Mom is here to help guide you to the very best flexible extra cash opportunities and work from home careers!
