I’d like to thank Freelance Blend and Marv de Leon for having me over for my first ever podcast — yay! (Thanks, Marv!) Listen Now: “Create a Happy Life, Brand or Blog with Bliss-Maker Martine de Luna Martine-De-Luna-Poster-Freelance-Blend On this podcast, I talk about how I grew my blog DaintyMom.com, into a three-pronged brand that has eventually become MartineDeLuna.com (my personal website and freelance services site), the WAHMderfullife.com (my site for our work-at-home workshops), and MakeItBlissful.com, my “baby” and the dearest of all my communities. In summary, here are some of the key points on my podcast with Freelance Blend, which you may find helpful:

  • What convinced me to quit her teaching job to become a work-at-home mom.
  • How my experiences working at home after child birth led me to create DaintyMom.com.
  • How the blog became the storefront to showcase my style of writing.
  • The lipstick sales pitch that gave me my “break” into the full-time WAHM lifestyle.
  • The value of having an audio logo for your brand.
  • How to position yourself to grab the attention of your potential clients.
  • Why it was hard for me to rebrand my already successful Dainty Mom brand into Make It Blissful.
  • Learning when to say “No” to maintain the credibility of your brand.
  • How some of the most successful books are titled and how to apply the same technique for your brand.
  • How to create a job description for yourself and use that to create your own product or service.
  • Why it is important to invest in yourself by taking workshops and courses.
  • How I grew organically her tribe outside the comment boxes of her blog.
  • The importance of having your own mastermind group. (I talk about the Make it Blissful Bloggers Mastermind, a private group exclusive to past workshop classmates of my blogger workshops.)
  • The top 3 bloggers that I follow.
  • The significance of having the best mentors and how to approach them.
  • How I monetize my different websites.
  • How I set different budgets for family, savings, education and fun.
  • How to save and invest using online banking.
  • The future of freelancing and working at home.

Tons of pointers, I know! **Laughing** But it’s 1 and a half hours of me talking and compounding the last 4 years of my life as a WAHM into one podcast. I hope you’ll at least pick up a few points from what I share on the podcast!
