I am currently in the field of my dreams, but am constantly working to expand and improve on what I'm already doing as well as generate more recurring revenue. I am a full-time freelance writer and transcriptionist, and I set a bit of time aside every day to write for and market my affiliate sites, including Hubpages, which is slowly building up recurring revenue so I don't have to work as hard for my monthly goal. As for how I got here, when my son was born I decided I wanted to stay at home with him, not pay for a daycare to raise him for me. I have always dabbled in various money-making ideas and, when I made up my mind to stay home, threw all my energy into it and at the end of the month, over 300 work hours and about 80 proposals later, I found that I had broken in to the freelance world. I have continued to build on that, constantly looking for new clients and developing new in-demand skills to continue growing. Before I married my second husband, I was the only single stay-at-home mom I knew.
