How to Raise a Family on a Single Income

Other than our first 3 months of marriage, I have not worked.  I did substitute teaching a couple months while pregnant, to earn extra cash, but not enough to count as 2 incomes.  While my husband’s salary has increased with promotions in his naval career, we have always been a single income household on a modest budget.  So how do we do it?  Well it’s taken some perfection and planning over time.

How to Become a Writer for enableher.

write for us.

There are two ways to contribute to enableher…

we’re looking for weekly, bi-weekly, and monthly columnists

Take a look at all the categories and subcategories we have listed on the site. If you think you can contribute on a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly basis to any one of those categories (OR, if you think a category is missing, I’ll add it!), talk to us! We don’t limit you on what you want to write about, as long as it falls within the themes of positivity, encouragement, and inspiration. Talk about yourself, talk about the amazing people you know, talk about advice you’d like to share with others– believe it or not, your words could change someone else’s life.

As a Weekly Columnist, you will be featured on our Authors List with your photo, biography, and contact information if desired. You’ll have your own blogger account, and your own profile page that will list all the articles that you write for us. Your picture and title will also be listed in the right-hand column of all the categories that you write for. You must be available to make a commitment to write one article per week, bi-weekly, or monthly, (but of course we’re flexible if you need a break now and then– life happens :) . If you’re interested, fill out the form in the Write For Us page!

do you have one or two amazing stories to share? become a Guest Blogger

Find yourself procrastinating on that memoir you keep meaning to start, and you don’t have time to be a regular columnist? Share your story with us as a Guest Blogger, and contribute to our collection of inspiring success! We want to gather as many stories and tips as we can from women just like you who have experienced what it’s like to work hard and achieve your goals. Give back by sharing what you went through, and what you wish you knew then that you know now. Whether you have a piece of advice, or just want to tell your own personal history, we want to hear from you!

As a Guest Blogger, you will be featured on our Guest Blogger List with your photo, biography, and contact information if desired. There is no obligation to write for us regularly. If you’re interested, fill out the form in the Write For Us page!

to all writers

While we can’t pay you for your time, rest assured that all the content you write belongs to you and that by contributing, you give us permission to publish, but the rights stay with you, the author. We do ask that, as a courtesy, if you do write something for us, that the writing be all-original (not an article or story you’ve copied and pasted, or reused over and over).

the vision

We are dedicated to anyone who wishes they had a female mentor or a strong role model, and to every woman who has achieved or wants to achieve her own success. We’re here to tell your stories, and inspire others to reach their ambitions with real life examples.

enableher. has 3 goals:

  1. to collect as many writers and stories/advice/inspirational pieces as we can
  2. to be the best place to read about amazing women who inspire the world– yes, the world
  3. and to promote everyone who contributes to this publication
And the only way we can achieve all three goals is with your help and your stories.

thank you!

Whatever you choose to write for us, we thank you sincerely. We can’t be successful without you, and in turn we wish you the best in everything that you do!
