My name is Gemma Laxton and my primary goal with moneywithoutleavingthehouse.com is to help others along the way on my journey to creating a sustainable income without leaving the house. It’s not that I don’t like the world outside my house, I just don’t wish to be involved in that constant daily slog that earns me money but also takes over my life.
In 2015 I went part-time and subsidised the income I received through various means online. I got pregnant and dropped everything. Now I have this small person I’m determined to spend as little time at work as possible and have decided to continue with earning an income, mostly passive, online.
There are so many websites and people online who claim to be living that dream life. They’re always on Youtube adverts, recording from a hired luxury apartment by the beach, offering to sell you the information that will allow you to live that life. Well, information should be free and the fact is that the reason these people make any money at all is purely by selling the dream. They offer no real value. We’ve all seen those sales pages offering you their massively discounted course. Was $499 now only $29.99 for a limited time only (that’s right, forever…) These pages are plastered with made up logos and shiny gold stars in an attempt to make themselves look legitimate. Let’s be honest, these sites look as though the second you enter your details to pay, your entire back account is going to be emptied.
I’m not rich… Unfortunately.
I’m not earning $30,000 a month and I’m not writing this from a beach house on the other side of the world. I’m writing this in my living room that is set in my very small and now over-crowded house, and I work part-time in a real job.
I have, however, over the years, discovered numerous great ways to make money online that will work providing you are prepared to put in the time and effort. There are no get rich quick schemes, but there are tried and tested methods available that can make you money. You can make a few hundred quid a month fairly easily and it is possible to be earning thousands a month and being able to get to the point where you can leave your job.
I’m happy to share any information I have and will happily be producing video guides to take you through many of the process’s that I tell you about here.
