Going into 2020 I decided that I needed to figure out how to make some extra income to help pay for the ever growing list of kid’s activities. With three kids the cost of all those activities really starts to add up! Piano lessons, ice skating lessons, swimming lessons, soccer, t-ball, it feels like the list goes on and on. Earning money at home is something that is important. I’m going to level with you on a truth about my blog… the blog isn’t always steady in the earnings department. It’s constantly an up and down of pageviews, etc. All of my kids are in school now which means I have more free time during the day and I had been debating whether or not I should get a job outside of the home or go back to school. I have a bachelors degree in psychology and can honestly do a whole lot of nothing with that. Unless I go back for my Masters. I thought about getting a Masters in Public Health or going to nursing school, both of which have been an interest of mine for a long time. Ultimately I decided that would be too many years to complete and too time consuming. I even thought about going to a phlebotomy training program to work part-time at one of the local hospitals or for the Red Cross. So many possibilites! But my main stress was would I still have the flexibility to be there for my kids if they ever needed me during the day? Field trips, volunteering at the school, all the things that I had been able to do as a stay at home mom. Then 2020 happened and we all know where that put us. My kids were home from school and doing online learning. If I had gotten a job outside of the home then it would have been an even bigger nightmare. So here I was. Back to the drawing board again one how to supplement our income. That’s when I started talking to my husband about the stock market…
I come from a family that invests in the stock market. They also make money from stocks and dividends.
Could I really be involved in day trading as a stay at home mom? I spend a lot of time online with the blog and I feel that I’m pretty good at researching product to determine what will sell, etc. Perhaps the stock market is just perfect for me since I have the time during the day to research and check how things are looking. So I talked to my dad and my brother and the rest is history!
There are a few ways to buy, sell, and trade stocks. I decided that I didn’t want to go through a broker because there are commissions and fees associated with that. I wanted to be more in control of our money and determine for myself which stocks to buy or sell. My brother told me about Robinhood (which he uses) and I signed up in the same day. It’s a free app and fits perfectly with my blogging lifestyle.
Things I like about the Robinhood stock trading app:
- Lists of stocks.
Popular ones, by type, etc.
- Your own portfolio.
Perfect for tracking how your shares are doing.
- Push notifications, see what others are doing, advice and more.
All in one stock app that is easy to use!
