About SmartMomBlogger.com

candis hidalgo smart mom bloggerHi there! I’m Candis Hidalgo, a stay-at-home wife & mama of four leveraging blogging + MLM to make money from home. Here at SmartMomBlogger, the #1 goal is NOT to help you make money or start a blog or rock your MLM or “be your best self” (whatever that means – ha). I do share all about that stuff, but none of those are the most important thing.

The #1 goal here at SmartMomBlogger is to help you looove your work-from-home #momlife!

So, what the heck does that mean?

I’m going to be real with you (always)… working from home with kids in tow is challenging. It just is! Trying to get solid work time in while you have laundry to do and dinner to plan and your son’s 2nd grade class newsletter to write and the baby crying is not for the faint of heart. But I promise you – you can do it.

If you want to be able to stay home with your kiddos, earn an income, and not lose yourself in the process, then I think you’re going to love it around here.

Here’s what you’ll find at SmartMomBlogger.com:

  • The BEST work from home ideas for busy stay-at-home moms
  • How to start a blog from scratch
  • The 6 ways to make money with your blog (you don’t have to do all of them!)
  • The two easiest ways to start making money with a brand new blog
  • The best MLM companies for moms and how to choose one that’s right for you
  • The 7 questions you should ask before joining an MLM
  • How to combine blogging + MLM to earn income from home
  • How to work your MLM business like an actual business (instead of bugging friends and family)
  • How to manage your time to stay productive with work and present with your family (without going crazy!)
  • Self-care and personal wellness tips so you don’t lose YOU in all of this
  • Time management, personal growth, goal setting & self-discipline, and all things work-from-home #momlife tips!

Here’s what I believe:

  • Being a healthy, positive, and present wife and mother to my children is my absolute #1 priority.
  • By setting up systems and strategies for productive and purposeful work, I can run a profitable home business and still have time for nurturing my real-world relationships.
  • Trying to “cram work in” while my kids watch TV or are otherwise distracted is NOT how I want to do this life. It’s my one chance at being a mom, and I’m just not going to do it that way.
  • Setting goals, working on something that’s important to me, and helping others not only fulfills me on a personal level, but also sets a good example for my children. This is my why.
  • I will not compare myself to other moms. Whether it’s how clean their house is, how stylish and “put-together” they seem, how successful their home business is compared to mine, how crafty or they are with their kids, how much money they make, how perfect their marriage seems – none of that matters. My results based on my goals matter. That’s what I focus on.

More About Me 🙂

I started in online marketing and design when I was just 18!

My sister let me intern at her small tech startup, which was the perfect opportunity for someone with all passion and no experience. I learned about website design, online marketing, advertising, blogging, copywriting, email marketing, press relations and all things business. It was fun and challenging… and I was good at it. I’d found my “thing”.

Inevitably, love, marriage, and babies came along, and I had found my new “thing”.

candis hidalgo and familyFrom the moment my first son was born, I knew I wanted to stay home with him instead of going back to work.

I just had to figure out how to make it work financially. And so my personal “work from home” journey began.

It was rocky at first! But I didn’t give up. Through the years, I’ve worked from home doing freelance writing, website design, online marketing, blogging and network marketing. I’ve learned a lot along the way!

And as you might have guessed, I’ve also made mistakes along the way… the same mistakes I see new work-from-homers making all the time.

This site is my way of reaching out and lending a hand to my fellow ambitious mamas. Mamas who are trying to make something better for their families and their lives. Mamas who have a vision that life can be more.  Mamas who refuse to settle.
