Lynne Huysamen about me

Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Lynne and I hope you enjoy what you find in this space of mine.

My Story – Lynne Huysamen

I’m a married mother of two and I live in the beautiful West Coast of South Africa. I make a full time income online while juggling the responsibilities of motherhood and running a household.

I started working online in 2012 and through trial and error over the years I have found a formula that works for me. Making money from home on my own using just a laptop and an internet connection excites me.

I am also a drug addict and alcoholic in recovery for 10+ years now and I have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder.

I am passionate about blogging, parenting, traveling and sharing my experience on addiction and mental health.

My Goal For This Website

Over the years I have launched a number of websites in different niches and it is not easy to manage so many projects at once. I have also found that although I have so many websites my voice has been lost a bit through publishing guest posts and sponsored posts.

The goal of this website is to one day have just this one website that is the main place I work from. I also want this website to be purely my own voice – 100% Lynnieland – where I say exactly what I want how I want.

My blog posts on this website are going to be split into the categories that I am most passionate about:

  • Motherhood and Family
  • Blogging
  • Health
  • Travel
  • Things That I Love
  • Inspiring People

I am planning to soon publish my own online courses to show other moms how to start their own blogs and make money online from home, as well as courses on mental health and addiction. I may even publish some courses in the parenting niche.

    It will be nice if you publish your own online courses and show others how to work from home. It will be an inspiration to stay at home mums and people who are not okay with their salaries. I will also love to read your publication on mental health and I really wish you success as you accomplish these things. Stay blessed! 

    1. Lynne says:

      Thanks Kenechi – I have actually written quite a lot on mental health on my other blogs but I want to start fresh here. I plan to write a new mental article at least every month! 

  2. Todd Matthews says:

    Inspiring story and excellent niche. I commend the fact you’ve been able to work online since 2012 and have been able to generate a full-time income. That definitely says a lot. I think your site will be able to help a lot of people with their own challenges while showing them what it takes to work from home. I’m excited to see further content from this blog. 

    1. Lynne says:

      Thanks Todd, it has been such an amazing and exciting journey to get to where I am today and I really want to be able to share that with others…. and of course make more money doing it!

    Hi Lynne,

    What an inspiring story, I salute to you! You are doing amazing, hopefully I can be just like you one day, I am a mess. I only have a husband but I consider him as my child lol. Between, my full time job and my husband and my blogging career, is hard for me to handle.

    I will like to congratulate you on winning the addiction. Thankfully, I do not suffer from any, but many of my friends are suffer from alcohol addictions and substances abuse. It is hard to see them what they go through and they relapse sometimes as well. Luckily, they got the help they need.

    I am sorry to hear that you are suffering from the bipolar disorder. Hopefully that did not interfere your life that much. You are so brave to address your problems openly.

    Cannot wait to see your course, I can learn from you. My husband and I are planning to have kids and we are hopeless lol

    Take care!

    1. Lynne says:

      Starting a family is amazing Nuttanee – and nothing can ever truly prepare you for it. It is hard but oh so rewarding too! 

      I look forward to sharing my courses with you. 

  4. Peace says:

    Hi Lynne, I look forward to being a part of this Lynneland project you’re starting. It seems to me that I’d feature alot of truth, plain old bitter truths. 

    I actually took a few seconds to come out of the shock of your matter of fact confession : I am also a drug addict and alcoholic in recovery for 10+ years now and I have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder.

    I’ve learned from all the years of my young life, that truth heals. Both the speaker and the listener. 

    1. Lynne says:

      Hi Peace – being open about it really helps me to heal and stay strong. It is amazing how being quiet about it helps the dark to spread, Besides the truth is that when I share that almost every person I have spoken to has told me that someone close to them has mental health problems. It is such a widespread issue that everyone is affected. There is also such a stigma attached to it.

    Hi lynn

    Thank you for sharing your about me story with me. 

    I think it is fantastic what you are doing and achieving.

     Having the courage to start your own business from home is never easy. Besides that having to deal with the different addictions can not be fun. It sounds like things are on the up for you now. 

    Your business idea of helping stay at home mums earn money will give you all the focus you will need to stay on the right track.

    What’s your number one recommendation for making money at home?

    It’s not only the mums that want to learn how to earn money from home what about us dads 🙂

    I wish you the best of success 

    Good luck and take care  

    1. Lynne says:

      Hi Matthew – you are so right I should not discriminate, I should say parents! My best recommendation for learning how to make money online through blogging and affiliate marketing is to sign up for the paid membership at Wealthy Affiliate University. 

      They do have a free account but I am a firm believer that if you really want to make it work you need the paid account so you have everything you need from the training to the tools and support to build your own business. 

  6. Seun Afotanju says:

    This is very impressive, I think you have really been through a lot and I love the fact that you didn’t let it stop you from achieving your goals, the way I see it I think you have a bright future ahead of you in the online business world and I’ll advice you keep it up. Good job!

    I have a friend with bi-polar disorder,and a mother of a child,she is a very caring and friendly person, we travelled with a tour group,to Israel, in 2011 and had a wonderful time.We also live in South Africa,in the Vereeniging area

    My Daughter and I, are in the digital marketing area, with Wealthy Affilliate,she has been with them for a couple of years, but I am just starting out,It is still a bit strange to me and difficult, but they have so much help, teaching and seminars, that we are very grateful for their oversight.

    We have found that discipline, and time management, are very important, and plan to spend two hours minimum daily, to keep things moving.

    1. Lynne says:

      Hi Robert – it is always great to find fellow South Africans working online! It really is overwhelming when you first start working online because there is so much to learn, but if you continue with it and ensure that you are always moving forward with learning new things and implementing them you will find that you are rocking it very quickly.

So if you are planning to publish your  own online courses to show other moms how to start their own blogs and make money online from home, as well as courses on mental health and addiction. And also, publish some courses in the parenting niche. You are can do so, because from this story, people will be looking up to you as a source of inspiration and vested trust
