Who: Toni Anderson
Blog: The Happy Housewife

Listen to This Episode

Imagine this . . .

Homeschooling seven kids (yes, I said seven), doing household chores, managing blogs, managing conferences, and speaking at conferences.

All this and more while her spouse is away from home more than at home (she's a military wife).

Today's guest does just that. Seems impossible?

Well, Toni Anderson is the multi-tasking Happy Housewife and blogger. She brings real-life experiences to her blog to help other families manage their homes.

Despite everything she has to juggle everyday, she manages to take care of everyone in the family and build a successful blog and online business.

How does she do it? Well, that's what we find out in this episode.

Inside This Episode


I've been doing this blogging thing since 2008 and there's something I've noticed – there are people who look at their blogging as a business and those who don't.

My friend Toni is definitely one who is not just a blogger. She's a business owner, and everything she does online is done from that standpoint. So I brought her on here to share tips on how to go from blogger to business owner. Here are some of the things she covers:

  • How to create your brand
  • The importance of writing
  • How to create a workable plan for your blog
  • How to make money with your blog
  • When you should start thinking about making money
  • The right way to network with others and build relationships in your space
  • Evaluating your progress
  • Much more . . .

If you're in the Become A Blogger community, you are most likely interested in not just doing something that will have an impact on the world, but also building your business around helping others.

If that's the case, you're gonna love this interview.
