How Busy Moms can Earn Extra Income with Passion Projects

Hello friend!

I’m going to teach you my two secrets to running a high six-figure business while balancing all of the demands of motherhood. It works because I use these exact principles running my doTERRA business, but you can apply this with anything you choose to do with your passion projects to create a financial pipeline. The key isn’t what you do (although it’s important to make sure that what you do is something you’re passionate about), but how you do it. 

When I set out on my own after slaving away hours as an Occupational Therapist, what I craved most was financial freedom and as equally important, time-freedom for the rest of my life to achieve a certain lifestyle - one where I’m able to be home with Nova, without commuting, with great flexibility for travel. I wanted that so bad that it became my biggest ‘why.’ For you, your ‘why’ could be different. It doesn’t even have to be as ambitious as mine, but the point is, whatever it is, it’s possible. However, 

1.  you’re just not sure how other people are doing it and 

2. how they find the time to do it. 

There are many ways, but this is the way I’ve been able to build my high six figure business. 

First, I’m going to tackle time. 

According to a study done by Eric Worre, this is how people on average spend their time in a week.

There are 30 hours that people idly spend their time, we call this sliver of time ‘fillers.’ It’s this sliver that’s ‘filled’ by things like watching T.V., on social media, on the phone with that friend who’s constantly venting, or saying yes to things you don’t really want to do but agree to so as not to turn people down. 

But what if, instead, you filled your calendar with only the things that bring you a great amount of joy? And say ‘no’ to other things, pleasantly, smilingly, and non-apologetically? The way to do that is by having a bigger yes burning inside. And practice not making other people’s non-emergencies, your emergencies.  

So how do you manage those 30 hours of filler time, exactly, to make sure it doesn’t get sucked into time-wasting activities? I learned this strategy from Stephen Covey’s “Seven Habits of Highly Effective People” and take a look at what my wonderful community that I mentor had to say about how effective this practice has been in response to the video I share below: 

And here’s the video snippet of me explaining it! 

Of course, every one of us and our situations are unique so take this information and apply it to custom fit your own life. 

How Other People are Doing It


For me, I’d always known I wanted to help people. I come from a pretty broken upbringing (more on that, later) so naturally, I always felt a calling to help others. Thus, I became an Occupational Therapist. But the hours were insane, I wasn’t happy, and my health suffered! In 2007, I attended my first personal development seminar and that was a major turning point in my life when I knew I could release my past and create massive success and abundance. And then doTERRA came into my life. It fit me because they were natural solutions to replace a lot of the chemically-driven products in my house and it was an avenue to help people and do my part in helping the planet heal. 

And if you find that you:

  • love helping people 
  • want to help heal the planet and 
  • are interested in making a passive income doing it

Then you may have found a fit and I’m here specifically to help you. I’ve helped thousands of women to date do this, proven by my Blue Diamond rank at doTERRA.

doTERRA is an essential oils company that my community & I are wholesale members of. That just means we get all of the products at a wholesale price and get to invite people who are like us: busy moms, green-conscious, social butterflies, who want the extra buffer in our income stream (mine just happens to be an extra buff buffer)  to try the high-quality products.

If you’re interested, enter your email here and you can see for yourself how the essential oils can improve your top 3 health concerns. This is one of the reasons why I’m so passionate about the oils. They’re a natural solution to any health concern and has proven to be effective in many areas of my life & my family’s life. 

This is the way I’ve done it. Through  doTERRA, mastering my time by being mindful of where every minute goes, and fully committed to help others and in turn, design my life around what’s important to me. Looking forward to further connecting with you and helping you find your purpose and mission. I hope it can be aligned with mine because co-creation within a supportive, purposeful community is what I believe we are here to do!

In the meantime, I hope you take the time to reflect & believe that you can make anything happen for yourself.

With Love,

Rigel Smith
