    Ep. 50: How Do I Make Money Online with Whitney Bonds

    Ep. 50: How Do I Make Money Online with Whitney Bonds

    Recording Date: (Feb 11, 2022)
    In this episode Jen has a new coach and Ashley is feeling good (except for a small issue with some mountain lions). We also go on a massive tangent about TV because we can. 
    Our guest today is Whitney Bonds At age 30, Whitney was a pregnant Marketing Manager with a desire to stay at home and raise her kids but couldn't afford to. With the due date of her second child quickly approaching, Bonds searched for legitimate work-from-home options for moms. It was hard to cut through the scams, so Bonds started interviewing moms that worked from home to see what they do, learn how much they earn, and get details on how they do it with kids. She is now a Remote Career Consultant and an expert on side hustle options for women and she shares her knowledge for FREE on her site triedandtruemomjobs.com.

Peaceful Living Wellness ,

Practical Inspiration

I love this podcast! After being an entrepreneur for over a decade I can say I am just done with the over-the-top claims about making tons of money in a very short amount of time. That’s just not how it works! Jen’s realistic approach to business and life is a like a breath of fresh air! She gets it! Not only does she give parentpreneurs permission to be human, she and her guests give advice & information that is both inspiring and realistic.

Love the authenticity

Jen gets “in the trenches” with real conversations which is amazing. Unfiltered, real advice and not just all of the happy moments. Highly recommend!

Jimbostringer ,

There are sooo many that “talk” about

THIS but few really are as transparent as Jen in “In the Trenches” I love listening to her podcast. It’s like listening to a friend chatting. Plus simple and brilliant advice on money strategies in FB... in her group! So I asked her to be on my podcast to find out she IS a real deal person even in person <3 her!
