Hi, I’m Melissa. I live in the Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire with my fiancé Sean and our rescue cat Zak.
I had always had the dream of one day working for myself, but I honestly didn’t think that it would ever be possible. Being my own boss felt like a pipe dream, and I thought I would always be stuck in a series of jobs that didn’t inspire me. It was for this reason that I started my first blog, melissajanelee.com, in 2015. Blogging was a creative outlet for me at the time, and a chance to try to earn some income on the side of my regular job. After learning so much about blogging and earning some money from it, I started this blog, At Home & Online, in 2016.
At Home & Online was initially intended to document the ways I made money from home alongside my regular job. Sean and I often talked about following our dreams and working for ourselves. For a long time, however, we didn’t really believe that it would ever become a reality.
I started following the journeys of other work-from-home entrepreneurs and bloggers, and began thinking ‘what if…?’. I increased my skills and my knowledge about working from home. We started making more money on the side. I started to believe it might be possible to earn enough money to live on from home. One day, we both decided we were going to go for it. In February 2017 I left my job and starting working for myself. It was such a liberating decision.
We make money in lots of other ways, too. I share them all on this blog. There are so many options out there to make some cash in a non-traditional way. Lots of them are via the internet. The amount of options we all now have to work for ourselves is wonderful.
I aim to share my honest experiences, tried and tested money-making methods, and new money-making ideas with you. We also save money wherever we can, and that’s a large part of this blog too.
