Are you a mom in need of extra cash?
Do you need ways to make money that compliment mom life?
If you answered: YES, you’ve come to the right place!
I’m a mom just like you. I know how important it is to create an abundant life for your family that doesn’t take away from time with your children. Making extra money isn’t worth the hassle if you’re exhausted from working long hours at a job you hate.
What if I told you that you can make money from home doing things you love?
My mission here at And This Potato is to share with you everything I’ve learned about how moms, like us, can make money from home. I want to walk you through my trials and errors to help you achieve the life you’ve always wanted for you and your family.
First of all, why is my site called And This Potato?
And This Potato (ATP) is named after my son, Levi. Levi has a lot of nicknames like Bug and Sweetness but Potato has always been my favorite thing to call him.
I am able to accomplish so much in my life because of Levi, my potato.
Without my little Sweet Potato, my life wouldn’t be filled with so much love, fulfillment, overwhelming joy, and a higher sense of personal responsibility that pushes me to work hard.
This site is named after him, for him, and was started because of him.
As parents of amazing children, we all have a potato in our life that has changed us forever and for the better.
What can I expect from ATP?

A little about me:
I grew up in sunny Las Vegas, Nevada. At 24 years old I was blessed with my son, Levi. Two weeks after Levi was born everything changed. I suffered from severe postpartum depression and decided that suicide was my only way out.
I went as far as picking the date and writing my note. I had never felt so low and unworthy in all my life. Fortunately, the people in my life noticed the signs and kept a close watch on me which is the only reason I’m still here today.
I ended up moving across the country to a place I had never been in western Pennsylvania. I went from a population of 2 million to 16,000. Can you say, “culture shock”?! I started my life over as a new mom in a foreign place– depressed and anxious but alive… even if I didn’t feel alive most of the time.
I was at the end of my first year of nursing school when Levi was diagnosed with severe nonverbal autism. I quit working to get Levi into Early Intervention services. Then, my nursing school was suddenly shut down by the government. Two weeks later, Levi started having seizures.
I found myself in the winter of 2016 as a struggling single mother of a special needs child– 30 lbs heavier, unable to work or go to school, and back in my deep depression. My only option was to find a way to work from home so I began searching the web. When I stumbled upon blogging a fire of excitement welled up inside of me. I gathered the little money I had saved, bought hosting, and got to work.
I spent months researching and learning as much as I could about the online world of blogging and social media networking. I became certified as a life coach and I even taught myself how to design websites. To share what I’ve learned and help other single parents of special needs children share their story– AndthisPotato.com was created.
I climbed my way out of depression through mindfulness, yoga, and discovering my life’s purpose through the world of online business. I achieved success by believing in myself, setting goals, and putting in the work (LOTS of work). If I can do it, you can do it too. I believe there is room for everyone to be successful in the online world. The world is waiting to hear your story. Tell it.
