Every website on the Internet needs a graphic designer in order to look professional and unique. Whether you have graphic design experience or you’re just starting out, there are opportunities available for you to demonstrate and hone your design skills. Create your own website and use it as a platform to showcase your work. You can also look for work on freelance websites to get additional work experience on your resume.
What It Is: Companies like Google and Yahoo! give you information to search for, and you tell them how closely their results matched what you were looking for. Does a search for Lady Antebellum turn up sites about the music group or links to pre–Civil War period information? If you are Latina, for example, you might be asked to search the way a Spanish speaker might perform a search in English. Jobs are usually between 10 to 25 hours a week.
When you are a single dad raising a family, you need to pay attention to so many things before starting a job. Two important characteristics of a job for single dads are flexibility and salary. While some companies are more flexible as compared to the others, they still require you to spend so much out and away from your kids. More and more people are now going for work-from-home jobs to earn money and to look after their family in the best way possible.
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.

Combatting the loneliness of being a stay-at-home dad goes beyond changing the narrative. Our-stay-at home dads crave community, too. As a small part of the stay-at-home population, stay-at-home dads have few folks to talk to about the challenges of putting your career on hold for a family. This isolation is magnified by primary caregiving as women’s work and therefore devalued.


Although most of us can laugh at it as a completely archaic and close-minded view of marriage, the “Leave It To Beaver” stereotype of a pearl-wearing, vacuuming wife and a bread-winning husband, in many ways, still stands as an ideal of a marriage — with the convenience of neat and tidy roles that let us know if we are doing a good job as a wife or providing as a husband.

So where does that leave a dad eager to improve his work-life balance or a stay-at-home parent wanting to make a little extra cash on the side? Not totally out of luck, it turns out. We took a look through the online job boards to see what kind of remote jobs were both prevalent and required the little experience and/or training to get started ⏤ actual jobs that don’t involve freelancing, selling old stuff, or starting your own business from home. There were a number of categories that stood out, and while they may not be positions you’d want to build a career around or do forever, they are relatively easy to get, pay decent wages (especially if your partner is still working full time), and don’t require that you get certified to teach Tae Bo or open a Cross Fit gym in your basement. Here are five to look for:
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.
For Laura, a chemist, and her husband, Ron, a former construction worker, the decision was somewhat mutual. “We had talked about it before we got married and knew that if it was financially possible, we wanted one person to stay home when we had children (both of us came from families where both parents worked),” explains Laura. “I wanted a career and we knew that I would be able to make more money than he could, and he liked the idea of taking care of the kids.”
Working outside the home has its perks, but it also means missing out on some of the biggest moments in your child’s life. Your baby’s first steps, her first “oooohhh” or “ahhhhhh,” and her first giggle are priceless milestones you are likely to miss. When you’re a work-at-home mom, you have a much better chance of being there for all of the moments that matter.
Most work-at-home moms don't start out with a full-time telecommuting position right away. The work-at-home lifestyle is usually something you build over time. In fact, you may need to build up your savings first. Plan to start small. If you're moving from the office to telecommuting, maybe try just a couple days a week at first to see how it works for you and your employer. If you're building a business, that takes time.
Hi , thanks for the tipsI never thought to use a number of those Jobs. I find that the best way for me is to complete surveys. I have been doing this for about a year now for about an hour each day and i’m making about $350-$500 each month, which isn’t bad considering it’s just meant to be some additional income. I find that this site works the best for those of you that are interested paymentforsurveys.blogspot.com
Do you have a flair for fashion? Do your friends always compliment you on your amazing sense of style? If so, becoming an online stylist could be your calling. Many upscale fashion subscription boxes are offering the services of a personal stylist to help them create individualized and professionally curated boxes. Use your skills for profit and help others improve their wardrobe at the same time.

Did I find this article useful? Yes, yes and a resounding yes!!! I happen to have a friend from Florida who has been bugging me about an online income opportunity because she knows I am a freelancer who earns through online jobs. But since we live worlds apart, I just didn’t know how to help her. I am definitely sharing this to her and I am checking some of the things listed here too for myself. Thanks Alexa!
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.
Although the demand is expected to decrease over the next decade, the opportunities are still there for travel agents who can harness the Internet to earn clients and help them plan their adventures. According to the BLS, job prospects may be best for travel agents who offer expertise in certain regions of the world, have experience planning tours or adventures, or who focus on group travel.

If you're ready to get serious about making money from home, now's the time to get started! Over the course of my work at home career, I've found numerous ways to bring in extra cash and save money, as well as a number of home business opportunities that can be started on a budget. This is a list of those resources. I'll continue to add to this list. Explore … Read More
This article is FANTABULOUS!!! Thank you sooo much! It is very overwhelming trying to sort through what may or may not be a scam on-line. This is the first time I have found information that seems promising. I am looking to be able to earn enough to support myself (I do not have kids) since health issues make it extremely difficult to work outside of my home. Keep up your great work!
[…] So don’t let yourself succumb to one single source of income.  Take a lesson from those around us and diversify.  Start by putting your money into things that have a strong potential to grow and bring you returns for years to come.  If you’re feeling a little more adventurous or entrepreneurial, you could always start a small-scale business using a website such as this one or other online jobs. […]
This is a great list! I’m hoping it will be very helpful to me… I haven’t been able to work all my life due to health problems. I have loved the idea of working and earning my own money, just never had the chance. So working from home could change my life! Do you have any advice on a really easy, simple way to get started and earning soon? I’m not looking to earn a lot or any thing, and it doesn’t need to be fun or interesting, I just want something easy to start with. I don’t particularly have many skills, but I can type and I have the free time. Any advice would be really appreciated. Thanks 🙂
If you are looking for an office job that doesn’t require you to go into an office, becoming a virtual assistant could be a great fit. Tasks will vary depending on the company but can include things like scheduling appointments, data entry, organizing records, email management, social media management and editing. Contacting bloggers, online companies and websites directly can be a great way of finding job opportunities, in addition to advertising in and responding to job boards.
Another way to get affordable child care: Pool your resources with several other working moms and hire one babysitter to watch all your children at the same time. Even without the sitter, you can get together with other WAHMs and let the kids play while you all work. "I found that if a child has a playdate, he or she is often amused long enough to allow you to do work that doesn't require extreme quiet," says freelance writer Melissa Dutton, of Columbus, Ohio, who also sometimes swapped child care for her two kids with another working mom a few hours a week. "I knew that she worked from home, too, so I offered to take her kid first, and it grew from there."

Whoever said that staying at home to look after children and the home was easy? Anyone who has experienced taking on the primary responsibility of caring for children knows it’s more than a full-time job. Handling school obligations and social schedules on top of the domestic responsibilities of managing a household is a workload that is never done, and I don’t know anyone who has successfully balanced both. Anyone who believes that SAHDs are lazy must never have been in in a stay-at-home position themselves.

I cannot thank you enough for the info you provided! I went back to work before my son turned 4. Now he’s 12 & I feel like I’ve missed out on so many summers & just time together because I’m working 5 days a week. I plan to take a serious look at the opportunities you listed and hopefully I can find a way to stay home and still earn an income. Plus, I drive 60 miles a day, saving almost $300 a month in gas alone would go a long way! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
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.
Yes, it just depends what you’re looking to get into. For the past year and a half I’ve worked about 20 hours a week writing for blogs and have pulled in anywhere from $2,000 – $3,000 per month. Now I’m doing more virtual assistant work and in the next few months should bring in quite a bit more money. (I’ll also be working 40 hours per week though)

This is a great list! Some of these I have never thought of for the stay at home moms (and stay at home dads 😉 ) out there. I have done a lot of research on different ways to make some income and I am always amazed at the ideas I still routinely find. You mentioned working for Amazon. I know Amazon has a platform that offers some micro jobs you can do as well. They pay small amounts but if you do a lot they can add up! I also like Uber! But only for driving during the day. I wouldn’t suggest driving for Uber at night.
Zeitcaster is a location-based service that delivers local event data. They frequently hire part-time data entry clerks to input time and location data, as well as categorize each event. Data Entry clerks are assigned to different types of events based on employee interest, for example: Art, Children & Family, Nature & Outdoors, etc. Pay is around $15/hour, likely dependent on location.
Hi Valerie, There are many different side hustles to choose from. If you have a specific interest in one and there is not already information to help you get started on the site, I can create it so please let us know. As far as scams go, this post will tell you about a few you need to watch out for: https://singlemomsincome.com/top-work-at-home-scams/
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.”
Hmmmm I’m a work from home mom right now but there are a couple of these I’m going to try out! Why not make a few bucks while shopping and have the gas paid for? Or help someone out if I’m running around anyway? Plus we are a pet free home so the kids would love pet sitting once in a while. LOVE this list thanks mama!! =) hope some of these links work in Canada!!
Great article, thanks. I’m a Mom of 4, now a hands-on Nanna. Pretty hard to get things done when your kids are small. When my oldest was being bullied at school I desperately needed money to pay for an alternative private school. So I became an ethical dog breeder. Twenty seven years on I’m still doing it and reckon it beats most other options out there hands down.
If you listen to music all day like I do, you’ll love this program. All you need to do is listen to unsigned bands and artists online and submit a review at Slicethepie. Active users with high reputations are earning an extra $50+ per month for just 5-10 min a day listening to some aspiring music talents. It may not seem much, but stick it in a savings account and that’s $50 more than what you had before!
Isolation – Being an stay at-home dad can be an isolating experience which can lead to depression. Every at-home parent deals with isolation but this is magnified for at-home dads because our society is still unfamiliar with men taking this role. On the playground, in the grocery store, or at pre-school, at-home dads often feel ignored or sometimes, feared, by the people they encounter. This makes it difficult for at-home dads to feel comfortable in their role or make many adult friends. While the number of men choosing to stay home with their children has more than doubled in the last 10 years, at-home dads still have many difficulties finding and connecting with other at-home dads.
The key is to identify a product that people use, or else you won’t sell any. Once you’ve picked a product to start with, you’ll need to find a supplier. Many private label companies use Alibaba to help source their products. When you’ve found a good product at a good price, you get to create a catchy name, logo, and package label design. These things all speak to your company’s values and how you want to be seen by your consumers, so definitely take time to put some thought into them.

This is great, thank you! We are having our first little one in May and I’ll be staying home with the baby after that because it’s really important to both of us, and I’ve been looking for some legit opportunities to still be able to contribute to our income. This list is really helpful and definitely gives me hope that I can find something in a few months when we have a schedule again!

You can deliver online lessons and start real-time chat to explain how to play an instrument better.

Yes! I’m a stay-at-home mom and started working as a consultant for Usborne Books in January — loving it! I do parties with friends online literally while putting my son to bed, and I did an amazing reading incentive program in my daughter’s school which involved one brief meeting a friend watched my kids during and all the rest was done after they were in bed. Perfect for me right now! usbornebookstores.com
Being a stay-at-home mom or dad is a full-time job, but it doesn’t pay a full-time paycheck. This makes it difficult for some one-income families to earn enough money to pay for things they need, let alone grow their savings. Good news is, there are ways to earn money without leaving the house or sacrificing your time with the kids. These opportunities enable you to make some cash while your children are at school, asleep, or even while they’re home and wide awake!
Sewing is becoming something of a lost art. If you know your way around a needle and thread, you can capitalize on the fact that most people can’t replace a missing button, let alone sew up a child’s Halloween costume or alter a prom dress. This is another option that costs you nothing to startup, provided you already own a sewing machine, since your customers will provide you with the items to alter or the fabric to create new attire.

I live with and care for my disabled mother in a wheelchair, and have since 2011, since I care for her and my son it’s very hard to get a job outside the home. My income is very limited and I have got scammed a lot of times on the WAH jobs that charge you a fee and don’t really work. If anyone can give me info on REAL and legitimate home jobs that do not charge a fee please email me info and help me out. cindy0579@yahoo.com

What It Is: Many companies pay online testers to make sure websites are intuitive and easy to navigate. "You basically follow the instructions you're given to check out the website," says Anna Thurman, founder of RealWaysToEarnMoneyOnline.com, a site that has reviewed more than 500 online work opportunities. "It usually only takes about 15 minutes per test." Thurman recommends registering with 10 to 12 different companies since the opportunities to test these sites are doled out first come, first served. "There are people who make $100 to $200 a month by staying on top of those tests," Thurman says.

This is a 21st Century opportunity for a naturally organized stay-at-home worker. A virtual assistant helps a professional take care of any number of tasks that can be done from home, such as handling correspondence, bookkeeping and website design. This is a great job in terms of steady income, as virtual assistants often stay with their clients long term, although sometimes it can be less flexible than other stay-at-home work. Virtualassistants.com is a directory for companies and assistants to find each other. 

Keep in mind that working from home requires self-discipline, organization, and focus (here are my favorite books on getting it all done with less stress). It’ll take a bit of trial and error to figure out what works best for you, and you must be driven to keep going even when you feel like giving up, or if others question your decisions. But the effort is worth it. I know this because I’ve been working for myself since 1996, and it’s rubbed off on my son, who recently started experimenting with ways to earn money from home; without interfering with his school or activities! If you have a teen looking to make some extra cash, check out this list!
