Making money

So I’ve read, tried and tested most things online to make money. Stocks were popular with me a couple of years ago. Tag lines such as ‘easy was to make £1000 in a month’ do catch your eye and make you want to read the blog attached to it, but you have to either watch a video that last 30 minutes about how the stock market works and how “they” don’t want you to know how easy it is or you have to invest your own money. Obviously. The whole reason people look for things like this is because they have no money and want to get some quick. So stocks was definitely a No-Go for me. After watching said video. I still had no idea on how the stock market works and I didn’t want to lose all my money… You know… The money that I don’t have.

The next venture was filling out surveys. Oh my goodness. You have to fill out 1000’s of surveys to even make a living! The ones I was finding were only giving out pennies for each survey I filled out. I had enough of that after about a week. What’s the point?!

Because you all know I’m a self named ‘Pinterest Mum’. This great app has recently been giving me Pins for Affiliate Marketing links. So I’ve read up on this and researched A LOT. Like I do with anything new. So basically you can sign up with companies that will give you a list of other companies who will give you a commission to promote their business or product. Great! I could start making money before the day was out. I’ve been doing it for a day now and nothing. Is it my lack of push, is it my lack of followers, is it because it doesn’t really work? Who knows?!

I just know that if you want something. You just have to work hard to get it. No one is just going to hand you money for nothing. Are they?!

On a lighter note. We had a fab time at a forest school yesterday.

The girls made Stick Man! We love the story. Actually we love anything that Julia Donaldson writes.

So it begins…

So. I’m almost ready to get Bear&Moo officially off the ground. I’ve found a company to supply the t shirts. I’ve got my Cricut Maker and a vinyl supplier too. I’ve already made some stuff for the girls and they’ve been out and we’ve had a few laughs at Marnie’s top already. Especially when she’s crying (Which is most of the time we’re out). I’m pleased with most of the prints I’ve done, but noticed Marnie’s croc one did lift off in the wash (I didn’t tumble dry it), so will try and overcome that issue on the first print.

Matt is on top of the Social Media side, but I’m thinking of getting Bear&Moo on Instagram too. All new territory for me.
