The MiM for Moms Giveaway Series August 2016

The MiM for Moms Giveaway Series has ended, but don’t fret! Sign up here for updates about our NEW MiM for Moms Opportunity Scholarship (details coming soon!), a biannual event created to open the door to more work-at-home opportunities for women like you!

Here at MiM, I am dedicated to inspiring moms who are tired, burnt out, and altogether weary from the daily demands of motherhood. I want to help other moms out there rediscover the joys of motherhood through personal accomplishment, self-care, and overcoming the hardships — physical, emotional, financial, and otherwise — that motherhood tends to bring.

So if you’re someone who feels stuck, uninspired, unaccomplished, and drained …

… or if you’re a mom who’s been thinking about becoming a work-at-home mom (WAHM) …

… or if you’re a stay-at-home mom (SAHM) who needs something, erm, outside of motherhood to call your own …

… or you’re simply looking for creative ways to make extra income from home …

Keep reading. This is for you.

Momismore.com is hosting a MASSIVE series of giveaways for the month of August (and into September!) for aspiring work-at-home moms! Come check out the details and enter to win some fantastic prizes from some amazing sponsors!For the next six weeks (through September 9th!), we’re taking a little different approach to bringing inspiration to you lovely moms out there. I have had the wonderful opportunity to partner with some AMAZING sponsors to bring you one of the most exciting giveaways of the year! Together, we are giving away some incredible opportunities to help you reach some truly life-changing goals.

Let me be clear: This is NOT your run-of-the-mill giveaway.

This giveaway is about helping YOU change your life. This isn’t a giveaway of products that’ll clutter up your house and may (or may not) be useful – as great as those are. 😉 This giveaway is designed to help make a way for some of you who are willing to put in some work and accomplish something awesome. 

So why host a giveaway?

Here’s why:

A little over a year ago, my husband and I sat down for a family meeting. I explained to my husband that I really wanted to learn a skill that I could use to support us if, God forbid, anything were to ever happen to him. As the sole bread-winner, he had a LOT of weight on his shoulders. I wanted to help.

But that wasn’t the only reason.

I was so burnt out and empty from the demands of motherhood that I wanted NEEDED something I could call my own.

That’s when I discovered Proofread Anywhere and decided to enroll. The course was FANTASTIC (you can check out my in-depth review here) and I was able to secure paying clients right after I graduated. I was thrilled!  Not only was I able to earn a nice side-income for my family, but becoming a business owner really helped me become a better mom. Seriously. I could go on, but that’s for another post. 😉

Not long after that, I discovered Janet Shaughnessy, owner of Zoom Transcription and Transcribe Anywhere, a training program offering courses in both general and legal transcription. I enrolled in Janet’s LT course (then called Legal Transcription: The Zoom Method) and added legal transcription to my transcript proofreading business. Again, I found clients almost immediately and the work started rolling in. Wahoo!!

The doors that have opened for me since then have been unbelievable, and I am SO thankful for the courses I took and how they changed our lives. I am now a virtual assistant and use my skills to help other entrepreneurs build their own businesses — and I LOVE IT!!

But the best thing about it all is that because I feel accomplished, having built a business from the ground up, I am happier. I’m a happier wife, a happier woman, and a happier mom.

And I want to give other moms that same opportunity.

So join me for this amazing giveaway, and enter to win the opportunity to become a rock star mompreneur and possibly change your life!

  1. I graduated a few months ago – Finally – with the desire to freelance edit. This would be a great boost to my resume and my skill set! Thanks for the opportunity!

  2. I have been wanting to take a class like this but have not been able to afford it. This would be the best giveaway win ever! 🙂

  3. I entered and I would be super excited to have the opportunity to learn more about scoping! I have a legal background and have desperately searching for a way to stay home with my kiddos!!!

  4. Great giveaways! ‘Scoping’ sounds so interesting. Just signed up. Thanks for the introduction into unique Work at Home options! Very exciting!

  5. I am so excited about these giveaways! I was already planning to do Proofread Anywhere at some point during the next year, but then I stumbled across your blog and this series, and scoping is quite intriguing to me now, too!

    1. My pleasure, Liz! Most people have no idea this niche exists. In fact, I had no idea it existed until I became a transcript proofreader a year ago. So you’re definitely not alone! 🙂

  6. I’ve entered the Scoping Fundamentals drawing. Thanks for offering this wonderful giveaway! I’m fascinated and encouraged by the different work-from-home opportunities promoted through this and Caitlin Pyle’s sites, and my goal is to be working from home in the near future. THANKS!

  7. Working through Caitlin’s PA right now; this would be a great asset to proofreading: either as additional background training or a separate service to offer. Either way, it sounds super cool! Best of luck to all who enter!

    1. Totally, Rebekah! I think the two courses would pair really well together. I have had first-hand experience with both courses, and Linda’s new course incorporates a some of PA’s content as well. The cool thing is that I believe she offers a small discount to PA students, too. WooHoo! 🙂 Good luck in the giveaway!

  8. Bookkeeper Business Academy is really filling a need, and I’m delighted that you’re helping get the word out. I would love to enroll myself, but don’t know that I can afford it unless I win this week’s giveaway. I’m holding my breath!

  9. Ben Robinson is the guy who inspired me to start following Caitlin Pyle and from there, you as well. The first time I listened to him I could tell he was a real professional and master at his craft. He has a fervor to teach people well and it come across in his video. I’ve done some part-time bookkeeping and how awesome it would be to win his training course. Very generous donation from Ben. Winning this would enable me to acquire (and master) two new skills. Thank you, Ben for offering a great prize and Katie for hosting this event!

  10. All signed up! I’ve been looking at this course and trying to find a way to get the money together. This is such a great giveaway! Thank you. =)

  11. Thank you for this wonderful giveaway series and your lovely blog Katie.
    Excited for the bookkeeper academy.
    Doing this one for my husband. He is looking for a career change but finding it difficult. This is his dream job!!

    Good luck everyone.

  12. Thanks for the awesome giveaways!! I’m a new mama and looking for ways to contribute, financially, since quitting my job.

  13. Thanks Katie! I went through Ben’s free course and was super excited. Can’t afford the whole enchilada right now, but winning it would be spectacular! 🙂 Good luck to everyone who enters!

  14. Awesome giveaway! I’m a stay at home mom looking to make some money. My son starts preK and expecting another one in February!

  15. I would LOVE to win Ben’s course. I would love to stay home with our daughter a while longer and being able to make a legitimate income from home sounds awesome!! Thank you for having these giveaways. I love your blog, too. Its honest and real. Thank you!

    1. Thank you so much for such a nice comment, Christina! I’m thrilled that you’re enjoying the blog. I really do strive to keep things real and honest for my readers. 🙂 Wishing you luck on the giveaway!!

  16. So exciting! Thank you so much for making these giveaways possible. And for sharing the information on the providers. Excellent referrals!

  17. Thank you for doing this give away. I have been wanting to do this for weeks but the money is not there right now. fingers crossed I win this one.

  18. We are lucky to have a Mom like you come up with this idea and join us in our journey to becoming empowered Transcriptionists and Proofreaders. Thanks a lot, Katie, you are a blessing to us Moms.

    1. Thank you SO much for your sweet comment, Yvonne! I really LOVE being able to bring all of these resources to you ladies. 🙂 It’s been such a huge blessing for me, and I’m thankful the Lord has paved the way to make it happen. 🙂

  19. I’m wavering between transcription and bookkeeping because I’m super with words, spelling, and grammar, but I love numbers and the details surrounding them. I would love to build skills in both arenas because not only am I a stay-at-home mom, I’ve got 6 munchkins to help support and feed. I’m amazed at your giveaways, Katie! I’m looking forward to seeing if one of them will help launch me into a work-from-home career. God bless you!

    1. So excited to share these opportunities with you, Iva! Have you considered starting with one and then adding the other to build your own business with multiple offered services? I always recommend having multiple income streams when you’re working as a freelancer. 🙂

  20. This giveaway series is truly ingenious! I don’t know that I would ever have found your site so soon otherwise. I appreciate the MiM site for the information, lovely design, and staightforward sharing. All the best,

    Future transcriptionist

  21. I entered, and I am excited to hear who won (of course I hope it’s me!). This is such a great resource and opportunity for moms who are looking for legitimate ways to make money at home. Thank you!

  22. I’m crossing my fingers I win this. That would be great. Good luck to everyone. Also, I shared with my friends on Facebook but it didn’t give me the 10 bonus points. What should I do? Thanks!

  23. I am SUPER excited about this giveaway. Janet is very nice and I would love to learn transcribing to enter into a new career. I have been researching this area of work and am confident that I can succeed with the right training. Good luck to all of you and God bless. This is one of my favorite blogs to visit because I feel as though I am spending time with the girls 🙂 Thank you for all you do to encourage and uplift us each day.

    Blessings ~ Laura R.

  24. Hi, I’ve been doing “amateur” transcriptions around, but I realized that I need to learn lots more to get better paid. So winning this would be a really nice way to start doing so and improving my earnings and work/life balance as well.

  25. I love this giveaway. Thank you so much for providing and supporting opportunities for women to work while caring for their little ones at home. My girls are going back to public school this year and my 2 yr old will go to a 3 day 2.5 hr preschool. Transciption is something I think I would be able to do well. Winning this would give me the opportunity to help support our family during this difficult financial time.

    1. Hi, Michelle! I have found transcription to be a great option for bringing in some extra cash, especially during those difficult financial times. Wishing you luck in the giveaway! 🙂

  26. I’ve read the comments and still find where to enter confusing. By “instructions” do you mean “here’s the scoop?” I’ve gone through the message 10 times and can’t believe I can’t find this!

  27. Thanks so much for this giveaway! I just discovered your blog through Janet Shaughnessy’s free intro course. I really want to take the full General Transcription course but can’t afford the expense right now. Fingers crossed!

  28. I entered the giveaway for the Transcribe Anywhere Legal or General Transcription: Theory and Practice course. This is a great giveaway. I would love to win to be able to supplement my income. Who couldn’t use a little extra money these days. Thank you for all the great giveaways! God bless.

  29. Hi Katie,
    I haven’t received a confirmation email for the week 4 giveaway. I’m so excited for this one! Can you please enter me?

    1. Hi, Darian!

      You won’t be receiving a confirmation for your giveaway entries, only for subscribing to the blog. I do show that you have five entries submitted, though, so you’re all set! 🙂

  30. Just entered this week’s giveaway! I’m also a homeschool mom and I’ve been eyeing this transcription course for a while! Would love to win it! Thanks for a great opportunity!!

  31. Giveaway entered! I’m so glad I came across your blog a few months ago. I’m a stay at home mom to two little boys and am very interested in looking for some ways to earn some extra money for my family.

  32. I entered. As an older ‘mom’, it’s a challenge to learn something new. I would love to win Janet’s transcribe course. I have done some transcription before and think it’s something I could get into with training this time! 🙂 Thank you for all that you do.

    1. I’m loving your enthusiasm, Tiffany!! It’s just as exciting for me because I know what a HUGE blessing these opportunities have been for me personally. Good luck! 🙂

  33. I’m so hoping I can win. I want to take transcribe anywhere but it’s way too expensive. I want to be able to work from home and help out paying off our two credit cards. It would be such a blessing to win this.

    1. I totally understand, Carrie! Stick around after the big giveaway ends for more opportunity to win tuition in the future. I know what a huge blessing working from home has been for my family, and I want to be able to help others get there, too. Good luck! 🙂

  34. Woo hoo! Transcription! The one I’ve been waiting for! I set an alarm on my phone for this. Thank you so much Katie!
    Kate x

  35. I just entered the transcribe anywhere giveaway! Thanks for the opportunity! I’m also very interested in your bookkeeping post. I’m ready to start a home-based career, and am soaking up all of these ideas. 🙂

  36. Oh my goodness! I’m so glad I came across your website! I entered your giveaway. Now I’m going to spend the next few hours browsing all your content. Thanks!

  37. Awesome giveaway! My growing family could really use the extra $$ without having to “never see mommy”. 🙂

    1. I TOTALLY understand this, Sabrina! 🙂 All of the courses included in the giveaway are awesome options for busy moms looking to make some extra cash at home. Good luck! 🙂

  38. I just entered the Make Over your mornings/evenings. I’ve been following Crystal for a while and always benefit from what she puts out. Thank you both!

  39. Entered the make over your mornings and evenings.
    Husband out of work, 2 year old, in laws staying with me….. Help!

    Looks like an amazing course. Even if I don’t win, I will defo be looking at this!

    Thanks a lot katie!
    Really lovely blog, my fav online! ( along with proofread anywhere )

    Kate x

    1. SO glad you’re enjoying the blog, Kate! 🙂 Crystal’s courses really are awesome. She really breaks down the process of creating a morning and evening routine in a way that makes it doable! I’ve found them to be a huge help.

  40. This is amazing! I wish I had discovered this sooner! I’ve been looking for something to do from home. I’ve been doing a direct sales company. I love it (Usborne Books), but I’m not making enough at it.

  41. With a nearly 3 year old and one on the way (Feb ’17) and basically no family or help, its hard to find ways to help our income a bit! This seems like a really possible option! I really need to look more into this and convince my husband…

    1. Congratulations on your growing family, Sabrina! I have a 6-year-old and a 3-year-old. I can definitely say these are the best options for moms of littles. Let me know if you have any questions! 🙂

  42. This is a phenomenal grouping of products and materials. Thank you. Even if I don’t win, I’m already glad for all the information I’ve received from your site as I investigate creating a successful career while being an SAHM. 🙂

    1. I’m SO happy to hear this, Chanda! Stay tuned for later this week. I’ll be posting an expert interview from a lady in a work-at-home field few know about. I’m super excited to share it with you all! 🙂

  43. Hi Katie,

    I have been dying to take the BookKeeper Business Academy course for a while now, and will definitively be entering in the give-a-way! Quick question: is it possible to win more than once? I only ask because they ALL sound amazing, but I don’t want to hurt my chances at winning Ben’s Bookkeeping course. Thanks in advance!

    1. I love your excitement, Carly!! Unfortunately, no. You can’t win more than once. 🙁 We want to spread the opportunity out and allow more people to win, so we’ve limited it once per winner.

    1. I never took the course to proofread full time. Blogging is something I do because I really enjoy it. Proofreading, for me, has always been a way to bring in a side income. 🙂

  44. Hello Thank you so much for your practical and informative blog! I was hoping to confirm that I am signed up for the Caitlyn Pyle proofread anywhere giveaway? Thank you

  45. Thank you Katie for your generous spirit! I am thrilled to know about you and getting the chance to win one of your giveaways.

    I am excitedly hoping and praying to win the 30-day Jumpstart to Transcript Proofreading: Theory and Practice by the very inspiring Caitlyn Pyle. I have gone through her communications pertaining to the course and I am fully convinced that the job of a transcript proofreader is a perfect fit for me. I am a retired school employee, and I want to do this the Caitlyn’s way for the rest of my life.

  46. Are you aware of any other proofreading courses? What I mean is like proofreading manuscripts, plays, copyright, magazines, etc. I know they have proof readers in all kinds of fields. I was just wondering if you might know of any. I’m a widow living on a fixed income of a little more than $15,000.00 a year. Also I’m raising a teenage granddaughter on this income. So as you can see, on this lowly income I can’t afford to pay $200.00 for even the start of a course. But with fingers, toes, and eyes crossed, maybe I’ll win the Proofreading Anywhere Course. I’m signing up to try just in case I might get lucky. Thank you & have a great week! God Bless.

    1. Hi, Glenda! I’m currently not aware of any other proofreading courses, but I do know that PA grads often go on to proofread manuscripts, movie scripts, copyright, magazines, blogs, novels, etc. The opportunities are really endless. Definitely enter because if you do win, Jumpstart is an excellent way to get started. 🙂

  47. Hi Katie,
    Having been through both training courses yourself, would you recommend starting with proofreading or transcription? I imagine I would eventually do both, but I’m curious as to your thoughts. Thanks!

    1. Hi, Lizzie! I know I answered this same question in my reply to your email, but I think it might be helpful for others to read too, so I’m going to post my response here as well. 🙂

      I personally took the proofreading course first, and I’m happy I did. I decided to take the legal transcription course afterward, and I think they pair really well together. As a transcriptionist, proofreading is a necessary skill. Going into legal transcription with an understanding of court transcripts made the course SO much easier. General transcription is also a fantastic niche (and there’s definitely a need!). And even though it’s not related to legal transcripts, the skills learned in the proofreading course definitely helps in this course as well. 🙂 Hope this helps!

  48. Very exciting! Where are the giveaway entry forms? Thanks! Emma

    PS – I’m a homeschooling mom with six children. Great website!

    1. Hi, Emma! First, I want to say that you are a rock star! I’m a homeschooling mom of two busy kiddos. You’re my hero! 😉 The giveaway entry forms will be opened up when each giveaway starts. Our first giveaway will begin on Monday, August 1st. If you subscribe to my newsletter, you will receive an email notifying you of the start of each individual giveaway and given a link to the page where you can enter. 🙂 Hope this helps!

      P.S. SO glad you’re enjoying the blog!

  49. I noticed the comment “affiliate link” where you earn a commission if anyone responds and purchases what you advertise; is this how you earn money? Are the offers genuine or just another selling site?

    1. I appreciate your honest questions, Rose! As a blogger, everything I do for my readers, I do for free. It costs my readers nothing to enjoy the content I create for them. In order to get compensated for the time I dedicate to you and my other readers, I promote products that I’ve either 1) used myself and LOVE, or 2) researched a LOT and really believe in. My affiliates give me a commission if someone purchases their product through my link. This does NOT affect the price my readers pay. It just helps me keep my blog available for all the moms out there who need it the most. 🙂

      As far as the giveaway, I am not selling ANYTHING for this giveaway. 🙂 While I do use affiliate links throughout the giveaway for people to use to go directly to the sponsor’s website and learn about the product, my readers are under no obligation to buy anything. Ever. This is a giveaway birthed entirely out of my own passion to let other moms know about the opportunities out there. I have either 1) taken these courses myself (my husband is currently taking the bookkeeping course), or 2) I have worked in the field I am promoting, so I know they are all viable opportunities to learn real skills to build real businesses from home. I, personally, approached these sponsors with the intention of paying for every. single. prize out of my own pocket, and the majority of sponsors willingly donated them because they believe in the cause. (I will be paying for two of the prizes out of my own money because I really believe in it!) So I hope this answers your questions. 🙂 These are genuine offers from real people wanting to make a difference.

      Again, thank you for your honest questions! To be quite frank, if it were me, I’d probably ask the exact same questions. 🙂 Enjoy your weekend!

    1. Hi, Casey! I’m SO sorry it took so long to reply to you! WordPress put your comment into spam for some reason. 🙁 I just added you to the email list, so you’re good there. All you have to do now is go fill out the giveaway form on this page. Once that’s filled out and submitted, you’ll be all set!

    1. Hi, Anabel!

      I’m sorry your sign-up hasn’t gone through. 🙁 We are experiencing a glitch with our email management system, and we are currently working with them to find a solution. In the meantime, feel free to email me at katie@momismore.com, and I’ll go ahead and sign you up manually. 🙂

  50. Hello Katie. I am also a stay at home mom of two little girls ages 7 months and 20 months. I am looking forward to learning more about doing transcription. I have experience in medical billing and a little in coding as well as extensive experience in Accounting, Administrative Assistant, etc. The list goes on. I did a little bit of transcription but not enough as others. I am a fast learner and can’t wait to get started. My website is http://www.gulfcoastva-ms.webs.com if you would like to check it out.

    I was referred to your site by Janet Shaughnessy from Transcribe Anywhere.

    1. Hi, Sandra!

      Sounds like you’ve got some excellent skills! Now that you’re on the email list, keep an eye out for the Week 4 email for the Transcribe Anywhere giveaway. Good luck to you! 🙂

  51. I have tried to sign up three times and i haven’t received my confirmation email, is there a problem with the site? Is usn’t showing up in spam either.

    1. Hi, Cathy!

      I totally understand that. Luckily, a couple of the giveaways include FULL tuition to the corresponding course, including Gina Horkey’s virtual assisting program and Ben Robinson’s bookkeeping course! Sign up to be notified when those giveaways go live to have a chance to enter and win! 🙂

  52. Looking forward to this! I’m a SAHM of 5 kids, whom I also homeschool. We need a little extra something to help make ends meet, so I’ve been doing a little transcription and proofreading work through online freelance sites. It would be great to win one of these courses in order to give me an edge in the market. I appreciate your message here, and will be digging into your archives to discover what riches are there hiding. And last, a head-nod to Janet from TranscribeAnywhere for pointing me your way. 🙂

    1. Hi, Sarah!

      Yay! Janet’s awesome. 🙂 This sounds like the perfect opportunity for you! Being a homeschooling mom of 2 boys, I totally understand needing some extra cash to make ends meet. So excited to have you check out the rest of the blog! MiM is new (and growing!), so stick around for more fun stuff. Good luck on the giveaway!
