Homeschool Work

Start a Business and Teach Entrepreneurship

As homeschool moms, we tend to look at everything as a teaching opportunity, and starting a business is no different! We recently took the Rainmakers 7-day challenge to start an e-commerce business. We loved it so much we also joined their mastermind group! Want to find out more? You can take their 7-day challenge too. We believe you can start a business and teach entrepreneurship at the same time!

Wendy and I have always had a desire to find a way to help homeschool moms supplement their income. Why? Because we often hear from homeschool moms who are struggling.

We hear how many moms are having to work outside the home and the stress it adds to your homeschool experience.

We hear how hard it is to work on somebody else’s schedule and homeschool around it.

We hear how you want to make a living while working around your other many responsibilities.

So we have been hunting for an idea that we believed in and wanted to do ourselves and would want to share with you… and we have found it! We are doing it ourselves! Did you see our diamond painting kits that we just launched this month? Those are due to the Rainmakers challenge!  They are offering a new 7-day challenge starting on Thursday, February 25, and we really want to encourage you to join it! It only costs $27, and you will get the tools that very first weekend to make your $27 back, immediately.

Take the Rainmakers challenge. You have nothing to lose!

Start a Business and Teach Entrepreneurship!

I know you have lots of questions!! We did too. Each day of the challenge Stephen and Chelsey, the challenge leaders, cover a different topic related to starting an online e-commerce business. If you have teenagers, get them to do the challenge with you! Here’s what you will learn each day:

Day 1: Where do I even get started?

Day 2: How much time does this take?

Day 3: How much do I need to start? How can I powerfully profit from the start?

Day 4: Are there ways to make this easier and more “hands off”? What if I don’t have ANY product ideas?

Day 5: How do I find highly profitable products to sell on Amazon?

Day 6: How do I go from a product idea to physical reality?

Day 7: How do I accelerate and take my business bottom line to the moon?

We have seen so many success stories in our short time doing this. These women are just like you and me. That is why we jumped in! We just knew we could learn this and teach our children about business at the same time. And we are doing it!
