I want to work when, and where it suits me. But how can I do that and still pay the bills?

12 months ago I asked myself this exact question.
I was trying (and failing) to juggle work and motherhood, struggling under a mountain of debt, exhausted and pleasing no one. 
It wasn't how I imagined motherhood would be.
Then I started this blog.

Fast forward just 1 year and I've now quit my day job and I'm steadily building multiple income streams that allow me to work when, and where I want - and still pay off debt.


Learn first hand how I'm going from exhaustion, debt and struggling - to health, wealth and freedom.  I'm documenting the whole experience/experiment on this blog.

You're here because you want to:

  • Create income streams that give you more flexibility. Perhaps a few! 
  • Be more conscious about how you're spending your hard earned money.
  • Pay off debt faster and find your version of financial freedom.
  • Surround yourself with a community of like-minded mamas on the same journey.

Hi! I'm Peti. I'm a mama from New Zealand who found out the hard way that debt and motherhood don't play well together.

Hi! I'm Peti. I'm a mama from New Zealand who found out the hard way that debt and motherhood don't play well together.

When my daughter was just 9 months old I went back to work.  I should have stayed home. I had post natal depression and a burned out husband, and what I really needed to do was stay home and tend the home fires. But I went back to work because we had a boot-load of debt, and that debt needed servicing. As a family, we found out quickly that this arrangement wasn't going to be sustainable!


So after some creative budgeting, I quit my day job and we are now living off one income. While still paying off debt, and while I build up multiple 'motherhood friendly' income streams.


This blog is a way for me to share this journey, and teach other mamas how to do the same.

It IS possible to work when and where you want, AND reach your financial goals.
