Tutoring. My friend Jenny tapped into a high-income community and used her teaching background to earn $40/hour helping with homework. The real money came when she bundled three kids together for group homework sessions, charging each family $25/hr. That’s $75 for an hour of work that can be done while your baby naps. Or, while you pay a teenager $10 to watch the baby in another room. This is one of those work at home jobs for moms that can be both financially beneficial and persoanlly rewarding as you help children learn.
It’s not something you can really do from home, unless what you’re offering is home-based, such as teaching your “new friend” to bake or scrapbook from your home (not something I’d personally recommend). However, earning money to show someone the best local restaurants for a few hours or helping them shop for gifts isn’t such a bad way to make extra cash while the kids are at school! Some users claim to earn over $2000 a week full time, and others who just work on the weekends and make $500.
When you cannot sell a craft, be a tutor, or have other skills, you can still be a data entry worker. You do not need serious skills for this because all you have to do is enter specific information into computer programs. Having a high-speed internet connection and good typing speed will help you enter data quickly and earn more money as a result. Just keep in mind that data entry jobs are usually the easiest, but they are the cheapest as well.

You can even find job opportunities on Craigslist and make students come to your house for lessons.
Ok, so dads can stay home with kids — but surely they can’t take on everything that a woman can, right? Not so fast. In addition to his role as dad, which involved school lunches, homework, all pick-ups and drop-offs and after-school activities, stay-at-home dad Ron takes on the majority of household responsibilities as well. “Jon has no problem doing house work,” Jen says. “He admits he likes doing it!”
With these options, you file your paperwork for a Limited Liability Company (LLC) or an Employee Identification Number (EIN), and you contract with larger companies to provide customer service via the phone. The advantages of this arrangement are you’re given extensive training, and you don’t have to find your own clients. The disadvantages of these options are you have less control over how you run your business, and your earning potential can be limited since you're not negotiating your own rates.
Laura recounts how, in going out with her girlfriends, many of whom were stay-at-home moms, she was in the unique position to hear the gripes of wives talking about their husbands not coming home at night on time — and realize that their complaints were the same as her own husband’s. “Since I was friends with SAHMs, I listened and learned a lot about their frustrations which turned out to be about the same as Ron’s,” she remembers.

A word to the wise: Do not register anywhere that has a membership fee, asks for your Social Security number or bank information, or is vague about payment.

Skills Required: To run your own private label company, you must be highly organized. You’ve got to track each aspect of the business to ensure you remain profitable. You’ll also need to be able to coordinate with those who help you create the brand to ensure everyone is on the same page and sees your vision. You’ll also need some initial investment funds to pay for the marketing supplies and the first batch of product.
Being an at-home call-center rep requires a computer and may require specific software or equipment. A great phone voice helps as well, as does any experience in customer service, data entry, retail sales, or management. Dozens of sites list job openings for call-center representatives, including Upwork.com, Freelancer.com, and SimplyHired.com. However, you may also find listings offered by local businesses in your local newspaper.
So many times I took the kid to the park and participated in meetings and ad hoc meetings while pushing the kiddo on the swing. Additionally, iPhones have a great dictation option when composing texts or emails; I found it easier to dictate emails and texts. It worked great and it allowed me to stay connected with the office. It’s really hard typing on the small screen and trying to watch the kid!
Design your way to a work-from-home job with this position as a senior product designer. Top-level candidates will not only understand the importance of user experience and visual design, but they’ll also be able to effectively communicate it. In short, you get excited solving design challenges with other designers and developers, and then improving and iterating on those products. You’ll need to rely on a deep understanding of visual design and user experience to take new ideas from concept (research and user testing) all the way to execution (mock-ups and prototypes).
Opening an online retail business through Ebay or Amazon has never been easier!  Just pick what products you’d like to sell, open up your store and start selling.  Ebay and Amazon are great for stay at home parents because you can keep your own schedule and sell as little or as much as you like.  How busy you are is totally up to you and how much product you offer for sale.
Working from home means literally doing my work in my home. There’s no physical separation between my personal and professional life, no clearly set times when I’m “on” and “off” one or the other. I love being able to make my own schedule, but that flexibility is also my downfall. If I’m not strictly disciplined with my time, which is not exactly my strong suit, it’s too easy to blur the lines between work and home. I tend to work in spurts here and there throughout the day and evening, which makes it feel like I’m working all day, even though I only work part-time hours.
See, I’m a fitness writer, and I have received some indication that I’m a good one. Fitness has been my passion for two decades; I’ve studied it extensively and trained many. It was what I wanted to write about, and from my first published article in a local magazine, it took only three years before I was nationally syndicated via the Chicago Tribune and Los Angeles Times. My work is read by millions of people each month, and I have a book deal with a major publishing house. I have interviewed the top researchers in the world, Olympic champions and well-known celebrities, including the drummer of the aforementioned Rush.
Deanne Akerson: As a maternity and breastfeeding apparel brand, our customers are moms. Our team of work-from-home-moms are uniquely positioned to deliver an incredible customer experience simply because they’re moms themselves, and they understand the needs of our customers perfectly! They know what it’s like to be pregnant, breastfeeding, sleep-deprived, because they have been there so recently themselves. This is a benefit to the company in so many ways; from knowing what kind of content creation to focus on, what new apparel products to make next, and how to interact on social media. It simply makes sense to employ work-from home moms who are also experiencing the same crazy, beautiful life stage as our customers.
"The idea of having her commute to our home office to do customer service didn't make sense," Akerson said. "It was sort of accidental that we hired a parent. It was a blessing to both of us that it was part-time though. Since the company was just starting out, we didn’t have the revenue to justify much in payroll yet, and as a mother of three, she did not want full-time work."
Other stay-at-home dads sell products that they make or purchase. Dads who are great photographers can sell their pictures online. Other dads get their kids or partners involved and sell creative crafts on the Web. Other get into online auction sites like eBay and buy and sell items. Even other dads buy used computers and laptops, refurbish them in the spare bedroom and then sell them online. One thing to remember is that in most states, people who sell at retail, even if they sell online, have to secure a business license and a state tax account and collect sales taxes in certain circumstances.
There are some good jobs on this list, but I just want to warn others that some of the gigs on this list are very low paying. Some Fiverr sellers do very well, but the majority of gigs don’t earn more than $50 a month. Also, keep in mind that if you are writing 1,000 word articles for $25 each for bidding site clients, you will burn out because you’d have to write a ton of those to equal the wages you’d make at a minimum wage job.

For those moms who are talented writers, there are many opportunities to get paid for contributing quality content. Blogs, websites and magazines are always looking for experts in their particular niche who have a way with words. The topics you can write about are endless, and you will be able to utilize your creativity and writing ability to generate substantial earnings whenever you have time to write.

What It Is: Transcription essentially involves you listening to audio files and typing out what you hear. Easy enough, right? Companies usually hire transcriptionists without much experience, so some job postings might only require you to have a computer and keyboard to get started. Transcription jobs can vary from transcribing a college lecture to a doctor's medical dictation, while most companies allow you to make your own schedule.

I have two small children and found going to a workplace full time was incredibly difficult alongside meeting the children’s needs (and paying for childcare!). It was very scary leaving a place of security and heading towards the unknown of being self-employed and working from home. I believed in myself and took the plunge to teach online for an established company. It was the best decision. The job is fun and energising and I fit it when my kids are at school. My children are happy and calm and I’m not worried about finances.

After reading this blog I decided to try one of the places – Clickworker – thought it was right up my alley. I assume these are legit online businesses, but unfortunately, as soon as I signed up with all my information – my Facebook account was hacked! I’m concerned as to what else might happen, but hoping that was it and my account at Clickworker was closed fast enough. Just be careful…. 

For some reason, surveys, short tasks, and odd jobs get a bad rap. No, they're not going to make you rich, but, they can help you pay down your debt, cover your coffee habit at Starbucks, or add some extra money to your savings account. To be successful with side hustles — you just need to create a plan and execute it. For instance, if you answer four surveys a day, and each one pays $1.00, and you do this for 30-days at the end of the month, you'll have $120!
Her other kid-centric tips: Set aside a few cool toys that your kids can play with, or arrange playdates or special movie viewings only during "Mommy's work time." If your children have something to look forward to, they'll be less likely to interrupt you. You can also try setting up an activity center in your home office so kids feel as if they have their own designated place to do projects while you catch up on e-mails. If their interest in that fails, create a "boredom bowl," suggests Durst.
Many dads are already in the world of blogging; some blog about their fathering experiences, others blog about work-related issues, and still others blog primarily as a self-marketing effort. But several stay-at-home dads I know blog for a living, or at least make money in a respectable "second job." If you hope to monetize your blog, you need to provide content that is well written and engaging to readers. After all, if you can't get page views, you can't generally make money. To maximize your readership, focus your writing to a specific audience that is looking for help or advice.

Switching places also forced Jon to reevaluate how he felt about the couple’s marital roles. “For Jon, suddenly his role was changed as well and he dealt with a lot of his own pressures, like the thoughts, “I should be the one working, I should be the one making the money, I should be gone all day,’” says Jen. “It was a change for both of us. Both good and bad. Even though it is what we both wanted, it comes with its share of challenges.”
