Search engine evaluation jobs are a popular work at home non phone job for stay at home moms. Search engines like Google and Yahoo! outsource search engine evaluation jobs to third-party companies that then hire search engine evaluators. A search engine evaluator checks upon search results returned by a search engine in response to a keyword or keywordphrase typed in the search engine for relevancy and usefulness of the search results and then rates the results. Search engines use the rating or user experience to ensure they provide the most relevant, accurate and spam-free results for every search term typed in by a searcher. Some popular search engine evaluator companies hiring search evaluation jobs include Leapforce, Appen and Zero Chaos among others. The average pay is usually $10-$12 per hour.
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
Wow, I felt like you were describing my life – minus the homestead 🙂 ! I have a 2.5 year-old and was lucky enough to be able to quit my job after my maternity leave and start working for my husband’s small business from home about 2.5 days a week. My toddler still naps for 2 hours a day, and I really use that time to get a lot done. My mother also babysits one or two days a week so I can work.
Obviously some of these small business ideas have more earning potential than others, but what they all share in common are relatively low barriers to entry and the flexibility to work at them for a limited amount of time per week. I also tried to focus on side business ideas that have some sort of online component to them, since that's what I love most.

I take this unorthodox third way in all of my financial decisions and I knew childcare would be no different. Just as Mr. Frugalwoods and I eschew conventional wisdom on how much things should cost, or how little you should save, or how difficult it is to become financially independent, we also eschew the standard limitations our culture imposes on working vs. raising children. I say, do both if you want.

Earlier this year, IBM, a longtime champion of remote work, requested that some of its employees return to its offices, citing the changing nature of how colleagues can best work together. “We have a variety of work environments for different roles and teams,” the company said in a statement. “IBM’s strategy is about adopting the best work method for the work being done. For example, small, multidisciplinary teams of engineers, coders, project managers and designers work in close proximity, often directly with clients or end-users, continually generating and refining ideas.” It added that tens of thousands of IBM employees continue to work from home and that it still believes in flexible-work practices.

Pet sitting businesses offer pet owners a variety of animal care services, including exercising their pets while they are at work. They also provide an affordable alternative to boarding pets at a kennel during vacations or business trips. Being able to remain in their own home environment can reduce separation anxiety for both pets and their owners.
I worked from home as a freelancer after the birth of my first child, until the day my second child was born, using many of the strategies and structures you suggest. Getting housework, eating, and showering done during baby’s waking hours was huge. With two little ones I knew it was going to be too much for me, and having low expenses compared to our income allowed us to forego a second income for this season. I am very grateful for this because I know personally, I’d be very stressed out by trying to work with these two in the mix! I still get to write here and there, but without too many deadlines, and use free time more for volunteering and family recreation. It’s so important what you say about accepting each season and the constant changes that come with parenting.

"Work-from-home-moms are incredible – even if your target customers aren’t mothers. They know how to maximize their time, because they are moms, and know what a resource time is," Akerson said. "Eventually we realized it wasn’t just a coincidence that we kept hiring work-from-home-moms, it was actually part of the mission of Kindred Bravely to enable more families to have the work-life balance that we had found in our remote team. Since my husband and I both craved work that would let us be more available to our children than a traditional office and teaching job would allow, we made sure our company values and structure would align with that balance. With advances in technology, we found it was possible to form a completely remote team, which came with many unexpected benefits."


Being a wedding specialist works well for top-notch players, but being a generalist also has its benefits. Event and party planners leverage their network of service providers to cover not only weddings, but also seminars, corporate events, birthdays, baptisms, concerts, conferences, holiday parties, and other events, making it a relatively diverse business idea. Here are some tips if you want to run a part-time event planning business at home as a side business idea. And here’s a very honest look into the upside and downside of the trade.

When you are a stay-at-home mom, your days aren’t exactly free. Between caring for the house and the kids, there is plenty of work to do. However, as the children grow older and become more involved in school, some stay-at-home parents find they have some spare time on their hands all of a sudden. Starting a home e-business is a great way to make use of that time while contributing to your household income.
