Listen: Hope Breakfast's Ally Barnes chats with Jody Allen about her new book 'Earn At Home Mum'
Jody Allen was made redundant in 2009 while on maternity leave and pregnant with her second child. She started the Stay at Home Mum website to share her money-saving hacks while her family lived on one wage. It has since become Australia’s biggest mothers’ network.
The community of mums that rallied, sharing their tips with one another became a source of encouragement for Jody, that she wanted the website to be a free resource for mums right across the world.
With all she learned over the past decade, Jody has written a book, Earn at Home Mum, to help women who want to start their own business or bring in a little extra income on the side.
It’s a handbook of practical advice for mums who don’t have a business background. It’s for people who have no idea where to start.
