Lisa Mills of, blogging for people who want to work from homeWelcome to Heart My Life, where we are committed to helping you build the life of your dreams! My name is Lisa Mills and I’ve been working from home for the last 20 years. I love having the freedom to be my own boss, set my own schedule, and determine which project I want to work on. (And having more than 10 vacation days a year is awesome too.)

If you’ve been wanting to escape the corporate grind, you’re in the right place! This site is all about helping you leave the 9 to 5 behind and join the growing number of people who have found their dream life working from home.

Thanks to modern technology you have dozens of work-from-home careers to choose from, including blogging, writing, design, virtual assisting, affiliate marketing, crafting, coaching, teaching, and so many more avenues you could pursue. People are making full-time incomes in all of these fields. I’d love to help you become one of them.

I know it’s possible to work from home and contribute to your family’s income. Check out this article about my recent experiment with affiliate marketing. I was able to earn $90.00 in one week with just one simple pin…no blog, no website.

Another important stop on the tour is the Free Resources page, where I link to courses and downloads and freebies you can access and benefit from right away. Sign up for my mailing list and grab the free printable to do list that’s so pretty it will make you WANT to plan!

Need help getting organized? I have just the thing! Heart My Life printables and planners make it fun to organize your schedule and your life.


One of my favorite parts of developing a blog or website is choosing a theme! I think I love it because it feels so much like decorating a house, and who doesn’t find that incredibly fun?!

For months (even before I started actually working on this blog setup and preparation) I debated whether or not I wanted to do income reports. I love reading other people’s reports, but I kept asking myself was it something I wanted to incorporate into my blog and schedule?

When I started my first blog I had already become a Pinterest enthusiast. I was pinning everything from recipes to gardening tips, makeup techniques and cute fashions I wanted to try. When I started my business selling crocheted purses and the patterns to make them, I knew I wanted to showcase them on Pinterest. That turned out to be a great plan.
