A Simple Approach to Living With Less

More Than a Homemaker

I am a woman. I am a wife, daughter, sister, mother, and friend.

I am a hard worker. I am a writer, a web designer, a teacher, a cook, and a housekeeper.

I am a hybrid homemaker.

I am blessed to be able to work from home and be with my family. For many, an opportunity like that feels incredibly far out of reach. Walking away from your day job can be a very scary step–but it’s not impossible.

If you’re wondering how you can gain personal freedom and financial success in order to make your dreams a reality, then you should check out the brand new book, The Hybrid Homemaker by Melissa Gorzelanczyk. Melissa’s blog is called Peace & Projects and she has lots of inspiration to share.

The Hybrid Homemaker will teach you how to:

  • Get out of debt
  • Stick to a budget
  • Find your amazing work
  • Make money doing what you love
  • Shrug off the world’s burden of doing it all
  • Figure out what matters to you
  • Create a home where beauty and happiness appear through your actions

Melissa includes some great worksheets to get you thinking about what your passions are and helps brainstorm real ways you can make them a reality. There’s a guide to figuring out what you finally want to be when you grow up and one to teach you how to face your fears.

The Hybrid Homemaker is a 113 page ebook in PDF format. You can either read it on your computer screen or print it out.
