About Me

Hi! I’m Kelly Cannon de Borda – The Take Action Wahm.  I’m a work-at-home-mom, or WAHM,  who lives in Lima, Peru with my husband, Arturo, two teenage sons and 3 dogs.

I always knew that I wanted to stay home with my kids, but I also knew that I had to be able to help pay the bills.

Over the years, I’ve been inspired by women like Ree Drummond (The Pioneer Woman) and Leonie Dunsford and Kim Garst. These are women who have taken blogging and created amazing empires with it.

But I also know – I’m not like them, and I don’t really want to be. My ambitions aren’t quite that big – all I’ve ever wanted from blogging is to be able to help contribute to my family’s finances while being a stay at home mom.

And over the years, I’ve been able to do just that – mainly through affiliate marketing and freelance writing.

What I do here on The Take Action Wahm is teach women just like you how to do what I’ve done. I want to help you learn to make an at-home income the way I did. I want to help you learn things like –

  • Keyword research
  • Choosing affiliate networks and products that align with your niche and keywords
  • SEO so the search engines will love what you write
  • Copywriting so people will love what you write
  • Really effective link building.


I also want to help you figure out the little technical things that drive you crazy, like how to fix your header, how to speed up your blog, and how to make pins that look right.

The other side of this is that I know you’re a mom, and I know you don’t have a lot of time to sit and work on a blog. You need things you can get done while the baby is taking a nap, or while the toddler is at preschool. I feel ya!

That’s why I want to give you actionable tips that you can complete in steps of no more than 30 minutes. Things that make you feel like you’ve actually accomplished something and are getting closer to your goals instead of spinning your wheels. I’m also going to give you occasional tips for dealing with the stress and – let’s face it – the loneliness that can come with being a stay at home mom.

So, are you in? If this is the kind of help you’re looking for – comment down below!  Let me know what’s frustrating you most with your blog right now.

Let me help you create the income you need, so you can be the kind of mother you want.
