Stay-at-home moms can earn money from working with online recruiting agencies where you’ll be paid referral fees for every successful recruitment. You can also launch your own recruitment business by directly reaching out to companies that need to hire employees. Start small, and then grow your empire once you have learned the ropes of online recruitment.
The moms who are attentive to details and good at planning may try themselves as data entry assistant. The job does not require a special education or skills. A candidate should be ready to enter the data in the database, set up a daily planner, make posts, and sort the emails. These common office tasks can be done from home. A person should be a confident computer user. If you had an experience of working in the office, it would certainly increase the chances of hiring.
I am currently a mom of two and work a minimum wage full time job. It is a struggle especially with my husband in the military, I am constantly going to be on the move. My cousin actually just introduced me to a brand new opportunity called ACN . It was featured in "SUCCESS from Home" magazine multiple times and it is very legit. I was skeptical myself until he went to get his mail and his wife had received a paycheck and it was a four figure paycheck. Yes you do get paid per month but it is worth it . Now that I am with the business I am very excited to see what will come my way. If you would like to just check it out or look at the different offers the business offers to their customers check out my website @ http://KTYLER.acndirect.com. And if you are looking to join the team as well just sent me a message at email@example.com and I will let you know where a meeting is taking place near you just so you can check it out before you actually join.
She loves it. She is social and loves the teachers and she has special friends that she talks about all the time and she learns new things and is excited to show me the stuff they make. What I'm gunning for now, is to establish myself at this new company so that when she starts kindergarten in a couple years, I'll have enough clout at my office to ask for a 3/4 time job. I want someone to be here at 3 (some kindys are even less hours!) to care for her. Ideally, I want to split that time between me and my husband. Maybe: I get home at 3 on Monday & Tuesday, he'll do it Wednesday & Thursday, and either we'll both be off on Friday afternoons or we'll split it. He is so mentally resistant to this (another big reason we can't get work/life balance is that men are resistant to it) that I'm not sure it'll work unless I do it but that's my 100% goal.
I was sitting at my computer working when I got an email that said next week is Parent’s Day at my kid’s camp. Seriously? I pay boatloads of money to this place to take my kid off my hands for four measly hours a day, and it wants me to cancel my conference call with a client so I can come watch them watch my kid? I guess I could choose not to go, but everyone knows I’m a work-at-home mom, and they all think being a work-at-home mom means I can drop everything for my kids whenever they need me. But that is not what you get to do when you are a work-at-home mom.
When you’ve become fluent in a language, you might find yourself wanting to share that knowledge with other people who speak your native tongue. Very few people in the U.S. are fluent in a foreign language, so there’s a large market to be tapped. Best yet, all you really need to effectively teach a foreign language is some reading material and a quiet space to practice.
I am a work at home mom of five children, including 1-year-old twins. My best advice to work from home successfully with a newborn is to hire a sitter. Though a newborn will sleep throughout most of the day, by six weeks they will start to be awake more and more. Having a sitter allows you to focus on work during working hours so you can accomplish your working goals, giving you more time to focus on your newborn later. – Chelsea Gladden of FlexJobs

Additionally, we work because we enjoy what we do–not because we need the money. This is the extraordinary privilege of financial independence. As longtime readers know, my husband and I didn’t inherit money or come into lottery winnings; rather, we saved extraordinarily high percentages of our salaries for years and invested in a revenue-generating rental property and, more importantly, the stock market. If you’d like to initiate your own extreme frugality regimen, take my free Uber Frugal Month Challenge.
Whatever it is, I can assure you that no work-from-home mom (or for that matter, dad) is sitting on the couch catching up on soaps. With all due respect to Days of Our Lives, just because I choose to be the primary caretaker for my children doesn’t mean I have no desire to fulfill other aspects of my life. I'm still as hungry as ever when it comes to my career—I’ve just chosen a new venue. Remember, people: Mothers come in all shapes, sizes, colors and careers.
If you've got the attitude (and look), there should be a product or service out there on the hunt for the right model to promote their brand as a side business idea. You can sign up with a large agency, find a freelance agent, or look for your own modeling gigs as an independent talent. Since modeling is a complex field, get all the advice you need before jumping right in and find a mentor who can guide you through some of the early challenges it'll take to establish your brand. Depending on your preference, you can specialize in a single media format such as video or still images, to build a compelling portfolio and grow this into a business idea that has the potential to scale.
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!

If you are internet-savvy and possess basic computer skills, that’s an added benefit.
This business is excellent for someone who genuinely cares about what it means to interact with another person both online and in-person. Those who are most successful took a long, hard look at how they handled their own relationships before moving forward with their an actual business. Once they felt they had a good handle on their approach, they could go out and help others develop their own style.
Anyone who is artistically inclined and enjoys animals may like running a pet portraits business. For those who like to draw, paint, or work with another medium, doing commissioned portraits is a great way to earn an income creating art.

If you have an eye for make up, then you may want to consider starting a makeup business. Much more than being a makeup artist, you may also consider the sales of makeup products. Stay at home mums, as well as working class mothers can take part in this type of business. However, for the working class folks, they may engage in it part-time, by rendering their services to their clients at the weekends, when they are off work.
If you have clutter that you want to get rid of and like the idea of selling products to an established worldwide network of consumers, consider starting a business on eBay, Etsy or Amazon. You can source products to sell from junk/yard sales or charity shops. If you want to get a bit more sophisticated, then consider buying wholesale or adopting a drop-shipping model. The goal is to find products that are in high-demand and not readily available from other sources.

If you’re a creative mom and love to do arts and crafts, you can turn your hobby into an income-generating business. Fundera suggests that creative mommies should sell their handmade products as events giveaways or gifts during special occasions.

Just ordered this book, Blogging for Profit without Selling Your Soul. Hope to get some great info and tips for starting a blog. I quit my job a couple of years ago to start an art business. I love to paint. It’s not as lucrative as I want it to be so I’m looking to make some additional income doing something I love (at home). Thanks for all the great ideas everyone has posted. I’m taking very good notes!

One great option to earn income for stay-at-home moms is to offer tutoring services. This is especially great if you live in a neighborhood with many schoolchildren. If you’re skilled in certain areas, or if you’re a former educator, this is a great side hustle to consider. You’ll be helping other people’s kids, you can do it in your own place and you can even do it while helping your own children with their homework.
When my first son was born, I was able to split my days, working three days in the office and two days at home. When I got pregnant with my second, my family and I relocated across the country–and Edgenuity let me stay on full-time remote. It’s been an awesome opportunity and really helped with the transition for us. It’s tough working full-time–sometimes tougher when you’re totally remote–and having a toddler, but totally worth it. Cutting out all the costs and frustrations of a daily commute [which was 3 hours a day minimum living in NYC] and gaining back that time with my family has been priceless.
Many small companies and startups now outsource jobs that aren’t part of their core business (such as HR, admin, and accounting), which makes this skill set a great opportunity for starting a side business idea that engages your number prowess. Because companies always need to track their cash flow, freelance accountants and bookkeepers can really benefit from the increasing demand for part-time help.
I do work on my computer while he is up and playing and then when it's nap time I make my phone calls! I get my list of contacts and numbers ready before he lays down, so I have as much time as possible to make calls for follow up or recruiting. It's worked out really well so far!! Love my baby boy and my “job” I'm so happy to find a balance that meets everyone's needs! – Tiffany Lynch of 3000BC
