How Busy Moms can Earn Extra Income with Passion Projects

Hello friend!

I’m going to teach you my two secrets to running a multiple 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 my family, 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 the same as mine, but the point is, whatever it is, it’s possible.

Perhaps you have seen other people be successful with a home based business or a passion project. You may be wondering:

1.  How are they doing it?

2. How do 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 around my schedule and prioritizing my family. 

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. As a result, I became an Occupational Therapist. However, I discovered 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. 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. 

Do you want to:

  • Help people live well
  • Elevate your own health and wellness
  • Make a passive income doing it

If so, then you may have found a fit and I’m here specifically to help you. I’ve helped hundreds of women do this as a Blue Diamond leader with doTERRA. We are rated in the top 3% of leaders in the company. I know what works and how to teach others to do the same in a heart-centered way. 

doTERRA is the leading essential oil company in the world. They are dedicated to ethical sourcing practices through co-impact sourcing and have a commitment to creating the highest quality essential oils for you and your family.  I create a wellness community educating and using doTERRA products. I help people just like you get wholesale prices on products we use everyday for green and conscious living.

I've shared with you some of my best tips on prioritizing time. The next time you are considering saying, "I don't have time" instead, I invite you to say, "I have more than enough time to do what I desire today."  When you consciously choose your priorities you  master your time and focus on what is most important to you. For us, choosing to prioritize time to create a massively successful doTERRA business has brought us much abundance. We have created a community of supportive women with a common mission, elevated our health, created financial freedom, and most importantly time freedom to spend with the people who matter most. 

Looking forward to 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 take the time to reflect & believe that you can make anything happen for yourself.

With Love,

Rigel Smith
