Amanda van der Gulik, a mompreneur and Elance buyer, is passionate about two things: financial independence and children. She combines the two in her business, CleverDoughKids, a website dedicated to teaching children how to make money work for them rather than having to work for money.
CleverDoughKids, based in New Zealand and Canada, achieves Amanda's vision by creating and distributing educational materials with real examples of how kids can earn income passively. "It's just so amazing to watch as the financial light bulb turns on in kids heads!" said Amanda. One example Amanda shares is from her own daughter:
A number of states are holding presidential primary elections today, hence the nickname “Super Tuesday.” With the help of a provider on Elance, Chris Siglin, a music industry veteran, found a unique and powerful way to impact the political process.

Elance buyer and realtor, Jonathan Fleming, broke out of the day-to-day routine by using Elance to find and hire professionals to help him supercharge his real estate business while launching new ventures including public speaking and consulting.
With Super Bowl XLII showcasing current NFL stars, now is a perfect time to showcase Elance buyer Doug Hollie, a former player and current star in the San Francisco Bay Area community.
Doug Hollie is the founder of S.M.A.R.T. Students, Inc., a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to helping underprivileged and inner city youths through education, counseling, recreation and sports, and life skills training.
This is the final article in a three-part series spotlighting professional women who are using the internet to begin or continue new careers on Elance while simultaneously starting and raising their families.
Just like the two previous stories in this article series spotlighting Mompreneurs, Sue Kristoff (Elance ID: skristoff), started her freelancing career to have more time with her family. "Freelancing allows me to be at home with my children, especially during their early years, while still maintaining my professional career. I no longer have to pay for full time child care, or have a long commute."
