How I turned my hobby into a sustainable home-based business

I’ve Never Told Anyone My Secret to Success Until Now…

I started Move the Mountains back in 2015 when my husband and I were dirt poor, living with my mom, and had 2 small kids. I desperately wanted to help contribute to our finances and help us out of the hole that perpetual poverty digs you into.

I initially tried a greeting card making business (the cheapest business I could start) on Etsy and utterly failed. I was ready to give up when God whispered to my heart that there was more to this business dream and reassured me it was going to become everything I desired and more. That was when God began talking to me about Move the Mountains and brought Renae Christine’s resources into my life.

If you’ve never heard of her, she’s the #1 Handmade Educator worldwide and has 3 MILLION Youtube hits. I’m happy to not just call her my business coach, but my friend.

After I started taking her classes, my little Move the Mountains dream become a big Move the Mountains dream. One that I could use to help get our family out of perpetual poverty. A dream so big that God could use little ole me to speak passionately into the lives of women and sell products that would change their lives.

My latest financial accomplishment with Move the Mountains was buying my husband a car all by myself. Move the Mountains provided the down payment and the financing. It also allows me to be a homeschool mom, a part-time working mom, and I get to do it all at home (or Starbucks…cuz’ coffee y’all).

Now you might be asking me “but what has this REALLY done for you?”

Well, I’ve been featured in ABC, NBC, FOX, Visual Faith, She is Bold, Mompreneur Media, Scribbling Grace, Life Before Eternity, the CW, Bible Journaling with Kids, the Portland Business Journal, and more. So when I say her classes are life changing, I really mean that.

So, are you thinking that you might want to take her free classes too? I’ve got good news for you, my friend: The same training that I took to get to the top is FREE.

Yes, free. No credit card. No selling. Just a free class for you to help you begin your journey to financial freedom, or to be able to homeschool your kids, or to make an impact in the lives of women for Jesus. Whatever your dream is, if it involves selling a product, I think this class can be a total game changer for you.

Full Disclosure: I am a pro at reviewing awesome things and I receive compensation from the companies whose products I review. I have personally tested and reviewed everything in this free class here. In fact, I use this class everytime I create a new collection. I am independently owned and the opinions expressed here are our my own (and I’m quite opinionated 😉 ).

  1. Hey Mandy,
    Thanks so very much for sharing this! You are such an inspiration. It really is great to know others try, fail, keep trying and God gives them success! I tried to sell greeting cards and gift tags on Etsy as well as jewelry and just didn’t do well. It is a total breath of fresh air to read your story similar to mine and watch as God connects and opens doors when I follow His lead down the right business path. I thank Him for you and your business and know you will continue to bless others as He blesses you!

    1. Of course! When we see other’s successes, we don’t often see all the failures that took them to get there. Failure is one of the best teachers! I can’t wait to see where God leads you!
