Hey, hi and hello beautiful people and welcome to my blog! I am going to chronicle all the adventures I have with my family, being a freelance work at home mom, and I’ll share my secrets on how to get free gift cards and how to make money doing surveys with you.
Let’s start with introductions. My name is Sarah, otherwise known as GlitterBug, and if you can’t tell by the name I have an obsession with glitter and all things sparkly! I am also obsessed with my 4 kiddos. They
are assholes drive me absolutely insane but that’s what having kids is for, right? We like to play Minecraft together and make silly YouTube videos sometimes and they are the reason I do everything I do.
Everything started when I got my tubes tied (that’s a story for a different day) and I decided I wanted to go get a job and make some money. I applied to all kinds of places that I thought I had enough knowledge and motivation to be a great employee at, but I was turned down by every. single. one….. The reason? I didn’t have enough work experience. UGH! I had a few jobs as a teenager/young adult and I had been a homemaker/stay at home mom for 8 years, but even that wasn’t considered enough experience for anybody. After awhile I gave up on the notion that I would get a job when an awesome opportunity fell into my lap.
I was researching things for grief over losing my son and found a page where you could customize nail wraps for your angel babies. I ended up hosting a few online parties and then my new friend/consultant mentioned that she thought I would be a great consultant myself and I should sign up and sell the nail wraps too. This is where my work from home journey really started. I ended up signing up to start my own at home business and started doing online parties and making some sales. I had finally found something that made me feel like I was doing something productive. Fast forward to a year later and I didn’t make enough to hit the yearly quota. This was okay because by that point I was drifting away from nail wraps and my makeup obsession was beginning.
I signed up with a different direct sales company to sell makeup before my nail wrap consultant account expired and started to focus on that. GlitterBug makeup was born! Around this same time I discovered a few of the websites I now use to make my money from home. I was focusing time everyday to do surveys and different tasks for a little money or gift cards and was chosen to receive free products in exchange for reviewing them online. I scoured the internet to find ways to do this easily and now a year later I have a few that work for me.
Now it’s finally time to share my secrets with everyone! I’m hoping these secrets and tips will help someone else who was struggling the way I was.
