Should I Stay or Should I Go?
Once you have kids you’re often torn between leaving them behind and returning to work. New mothers and fathers are often confronted with the reality of returning to work after a child is born. It’s no longer theoretical. It’s a real human baby in your arms, that you’re pretty sure doesn’t want you to leave.
Perhaps Stay AND Go in a Different Direction…
Many parents look at options of working from home or remotely so they can be closer to their kids and set their own schedule that works for the family. They google for online content around “how to make money online for stay at home moms.”
There’s a lot of options these days for working at home. Some say that digital nomadism is the path of progress these days even with big companies, and you don’t have to fight so hard to earn a living from home.

I’d encourage you to check out LifterLMS as a tool to teach something valuable to the world. This isn’t get rich quick territory.

Recently we released a Stripe extension for LifterLMS that makes it quick and easy to accept credit card payments on your website for your online courses and memberships.
What is your Why?
I teach online and build this type of WordPress LMS software for 3 main reasons:

- So I can do work that helps positively impact the lives of others at scale
The next question is HOW CAN YOU HELP OTHERS?
There are so many things you can teach.
Your life is rich in experience and skills.
You’re probably too close to your abilities that you don’t realize how talented you are.
Just look at a site like Udemy at all the ways people are earning by teaching online.
