Crystal Paine’s blog – a popular personal finance site – offers instructions on how to pinch pennies, spend wisely and make money from home. Paine presents workable strategies for generating income. She cites her personal experience as her go-to case study, sharing stories of past failures and successes. Paine, a homeschooling mother of three and a self-described “child of God,” offers practical advice openly shaped by her religious beliefs. If you want helpful counsel about making money given from an optimistic, faith-based perspective, she fills the bill, though readers who don’t share her viewpoint may find her a little preachy. While always neutral in matters of religion, getAbstract believes moms (and dads) seeking alternative ways to earn, save and give will find much to appreciate in Paine’s helpful guide.

In this summary, you will learn

  • How to generate income,

  • How your extra income can make a difference.
