Father of twins turns a side hustle into an extra $1,000 a month!

Owen Morrill, father of two, is a technical writer, web designer, and web content specialist. Over time, he saw that business sites often lacked compelling content and knew he could help them create it.

Using the skills he already had, along with the motivation of the Work-At-Home Summit, Morrill decided to take charge of his own income and presented his ideas to a potential client who hired him right away!

Today, he works with a variety of clients, including a concrete excavator, and soon hopes to turn his side hustle into a full-time income.

  • interesting.I live in Saskatchewan Canada-20 miles from a small town of 300.Other than when my kids were growing up I worked at something-babysitting and housework when growing up,waitressing for awhile when going to tech school.Got married.farmed for30 years then sold out but came out only debt free but not cash ahead.We have managed to live with both of us working-I am a saver and worker-my husband is not a saver.I work in a nursing home,always save my income tax because I choose to get quite a bit taken off.always top off my TFSA and put the limit in my Sask Pension Plan.I have worked for my friend every Fri for 15 years at her bar for Fri night suppers.I am alright if something happens to my husband-he is pretty well done work( he is 69) but without his paycheck(from May to Nov) but living on my pay check alone will cause a lot of fights.He has never really supported me in the amount of work I do and does not seem to realize what is ahead.I could retire if I wish but do not want to yet-you can see why.So that is my story,I have looked at all or most of the side hustles but most are geared to much larger towns or not feasible.Computer is the way to go but what way I don't know

    Thanks for sharing a bit of your story with me, Germaine. I'm all about teaching people how to earn an income from anywhere so they're not restricted to their surroundings for work. It's a learning process but something you can totally do. If you haven't already, please join our Facebook group Work-at-Home Heroes. There's lots of info and support in there. Best wishes to you! :)

    Hi Caitlin! This was the first podcast I listened to - very interesting. I invite you to listen to the end result as well. Although very interesting and even motivating, I was wondering if you could slow down your speech just a tad. You talk so quickly that I found myself straining to catch what it was that you were saying. Unfortunately, it was kind of frustrating. In contrast, the "father of twins" spoke in a nice, comfortable roll - which really prompted me to continue to listen. This comment is in no way intended to be insulting; just introducing you to another option that might be more captivating to other listeners like me. Thanks so much for all you do - wonderful, wonderful concept!
