Home Money World About

Hello and welcome to Home Money World.

My name is Paul Thomas and I have attempted a number of home money-making activities over the years. I started this blog as a way of sharing my experiences and hopefully providing a reference for others that are looking to start a side Hustle or earn an additional income themselves.

I’m a middle-aged father of four earning a modest income working in the Uk financial services sector.  I’ve had jobs with various companies from small to multi-national and even been a self-employed consultant.

After leaving my career behind in 2015 I jointly set up a new business venture but had to close it down after 3 years of hard slog and unfortunately became bankrupt as a result.

That hit me like a ton of bricks and I found it hard to pick myself back up and get motivated.  I wasn’t ready to go back into the corporate world but had to earn a living to look after my family.  I tried web development for a time, signed up to Uber Eats delivering Fast Food and then did a van driving job for a couple of months.

That suited me fine but the money was basic with zero hours so I had to face facts and try to rebuild my career that I had left behind 6 years before.

My confidence was pretty low but I was able to find a local job in a junior position.  I now find myself back on the career path progressing slowly and gradually rebuilding.

I’m telling you all this not for you to feel sorry for me or give you a sob story but to let you know where I am coming from and what motivates me.  Essentially this is my Why.

Despite me being in full time work my wife has to do 3 part-time jobs to supplement our income and cover our bills, and that’s on top of being a full-time mum.  (She is a star and I would be lost without her by the way). We aren’t extravagant and don’t eat out a lot nor even go on expensive holidays every year.

I’m therefore looking for this blog as well as my other side-hustle – dropshipping on eBay as a way of supplementing our income so that my wife can reduce the number jobs she has and hopefully to pave the way for a passive income into our later years.

The other thing I want to get across is that despite things not previously working out I haven’t let that stop me.  One of the reasons I believe that I haven’t made a success of any of these endeavours is that I’ve never seen it through.  When things have gotten tight at home I’ve always had to dip into whatever profits I’d made to pay for things like Christmas or Holidays.

My mindset has also changed since going through bankruptcy.  Whereas before I was blinkered and self-absorbed I’ve realised you get more out of helping others sometimes than just looking after yourself.

This blog is an attempt to see something through without giving up and at the same time being helpful to others that may be searching for a way to improve their lives financially.  If it brings in a nice side income along the way then that’s a huge bonus for me.

So that’s enough about me.  If you’re looking for inspiration and insight into how you can make running a business or generating income from home, work for you.  Then you’ve come to the right place.
