Day in, day out, I have to tell my kids to leave me the hell alone, and I constantly feel bad about it. Do they think my work is more important than they are? It’s not. But sometimes it has to be. What does it to do to them that I’m constantly shutting my office door in their face or handing them over to another woman? And sure, I get to pop out to see them sometimes when I get a break, but then they freak out when I have to go back to my office, so it’s almost better not popping out to see them in the first place. And you know what really feels terrible? When you’re sitting at your desk and you can hear them bawling downstairs because they fell and they’re calling, “I want Mommmmyyy” and you’re dying to go to them but you can’t because you’re working, so you have to trust that someone else can hug them enough or sing them the boo-boo song or figure out that they’re faking it and tell them to shake it off.

I am a distributor with It Works. Started my journey in April to supplement my WAHM income as a staff recruiter for occupational, physical and speech therapist. I have a soon to be 2 year old and my husband and I realized it actually cost us more for me to work outside the home, and I was fortunate enough to be able to work out a situation with my employer to allow me to do my job from home. I have a sitter that helps from time to time to allow me time to meet deadlines, meetings, jobfairs. I schedule wrap appointments and parties when my husband is home. This also also allows me to have a positive work life balance for myself and gives our child a chance to have a mom at home but to still be able to have someone to give her undivided attention when I have work priorities. So far it is a win win for us. 

This business is well-suited for young, business-minded professionals. People in the 18-35 age range tend to be quite savvy with social media, which means they will have a huge advantage when crafting a social media marketing campaign. There’s more involved in this industry than being good at social media, though. People with marketing backgrounds will do exceptionally well in this type of business. The social aspect of this business will allow you to work anywhere you can access your clients’ social media accounts.
Along with children, pets are important members of the family. As such, there is a growing need for pet-related products and services, including pet sitting, doggy daycare, pet grooming, dog walking and other pet-related services. If your children are old enough, they can help you with many of the tasks involved in running a pet-related service, such as walking or feeding dogs.

If you have a passion for writing, this is an extremely rewarding career that allows you to use your talent while earning extra cash. If you prefer to work for yourself, consider starting your own blog (for more information, see the article how to get started your own blog in 6 steps). If you are not quite ready to start a blog or would rather work for others, there are plenty of options to write. 

This does not happen 100% of the time and she’ll come get us if she needs help or wants us to read her a book. But, she understands that playing alone is a good thing and that it allows her to freely explore. For this reason, we fully babyproofed all of the main rooms of our house. Even so, we never leave her alone–we’re always nearby, just not necessarily down on the floor directing her play. What we hope is that this will engender independence, confidence, and resiliency in our daughter.
Being able to work with portable equipment, or learn a new kitchen set up quickly will help. Offering a few choice meals and learning to make them efficiently can save time and give you a starting point for pricing. Creating an a la carte menu and a timetable for ordering can also provide a way to make the business stay time and cost effective for you.
Some moms may not have a quiet background if they have kids around the house most of the day. Other moms may not have a landline phone or just may not enjoy talking to strangers on the phone. If you are not interested in phone jobs for one reason or another, fortunately, there are lots of home-based jobs that does not require a phone and will allow background noise.​​
While having a formal background in graphic design is absolutely going to be helpful, it’s also relatively easy to learn the foundations of graphic design on your own. An increasingly easy-to-use Adobe Illustrator and even more easily accessible tools like Stencil and Visme are making it so that just about anyone with two opposable thumbs, a bit of creativity, and motivation can earn a side income doing things like designing (and selling) images like these motivational quotes that can be printed onto posters and sold on platforms like Etsy. Or you can find a local startup, small business owner, or photographer who could benefit from some extra help designing or altering images.
When working from home with a newborn, be sure to set aside specific times when you can dedicate 100% of your focus to your work. That could be while the baby sleeps or while someone else is caring for the baby. If you try to work while taking care of your baby at the same time, both will suffer from your incomplete attention! – Annabelle Petriella of Stylish Design Services
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. 

Are you a social media expert? Do you have experience marketing and selling? There are many jobs available in social media marketing. Companies know social media engagement is so vital to growing their business, but many simply don’t have the employee bandwidth to handle their social media marketing in-house. It’s a perfect opportunity for part-time work at home.
This is so great! I am going to try to implement ‘leaning in’ and sleeping earlier once I cut back my hours. I am working 40 hours at home and my son is about to turn one. It has been pretty horrid, but I just work late into the nights. The stress comes from being accountable to my co-workers and of course my son at the same time. To say nothing of the house, which is messy about 3-4 days of the week 🙁 I’m so glad you said working full time isn’t a great idea… it really isn’t and I wouldn’t recommend it to any mom, no matter how fulfilling the work is. (Side note; grad student hubs is home some of the day, and he does a ton of ‘child care’ – I mean wrestling and silly games 🙂

I'm not sure what I would do if I could do this over, since we were looking to maximize our income for a limited time to pay the mortgage off and I always knew there was an end date in sight. But you don't have an end date, you want to do it indefinitely. I can't recommend it. I think it will be stressful and hard. It was like being a frog in a pot of water getting hotter and hotter: It wasn't a good situation to be in but I couldn't see clearly enough to recognize that and jump out of the pot. Anyway, good luck to you!


My absolute top tip, both for you and for your baby, is to invest in a good sling or carrier. I have a soft cloth wrap that my 8-week old loves. He sleeps on me in the afternoons when I get a few hours' work done. I get to keep my business going, and he gets to have a nice warm sleep cuddled up on my chest. – Jennifer Stakes Roberts of Enhanced Freelance
Think about the first two years of your baby's life as separate from the rest of your career life. During that time, you might cut back your hours and your husband/partner should absolutely figure out how to cut back his hours as well. I see a lot where women quit working and then their partners start working like dogs to make up the slack and it is a horrible, not-balanced, way to live. Although, obviously, there are status quo systems in place that make it the most likely route. Try not to do that.
I won't lie--I wouldn't trade those first few years with my daughter for anything. But this sort of arrangement isn't something that you should rely on. Take as much maternity leave as you can, and, after the first bit, try to spend a few hours a day doing something mentally taxing while you have the baby. Go read Dostoyevsky, or bug check some code, or something in your field(ish). You'll figure out pretty quickly if baby + work is a thing you can do. Even if it is, I strongly suggest having a backup babysitter in the wings--someone, anyone, who can step in if Easy Baby is suddenly Teething And Miserable Baby, or Colic Baby, or any number of other things that can turn easy babies into screaming terrors and difficult-but-doable situations into major disasters.
No offence but this question is comically naive. This isn't posible; this isn't even close to possible -and that's assuming you have an "easy" baby.If you have a kid that is colic-y and cries a lot, or doesn't sleep much (like ours) you will be feeling very accomplished to get a shower in a day. I'm not joking. It can be so so hard. My wife was on maternity leave, I was working full time, and we both struggled. A lot. Not everyone is like this but no one would say you can do full time work. Spend some time with a newborn and stay at home parent if you don't believe me. Be sure to stay the night.
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.
Great list Whitney! Another great option is Amazon FBA (Fulfillment By Amazon) There are apps (like Profit Bandit) that will allow you to scan the barcodes of clearance items at local stores and know instantly if the item can be sold for a profit on Amazon. The beauty of FBA is you simply ship all of the items at once to Amazon and they handle picking, packing and shipping your items when they sell so you can get back to being a mom 🙂 I know three people that make a legitimate six-figure income doing this from home.
A Personal Concierge is detail oriented, home-based professional that offers corporate and individual assistance by completing such tasks such as arranging meetings, planning corporate events, purchasing gifts or tickets, making reservations, and paying bills. The services that you can provide are endless, and all depend on your specific niche and experience.
If you can type well and have basic computer skills, you may enjoy being a work from home transcriptionist. Transcribe Me is an online company that offers moms a chance to make money transcribing audio files. These files are generally short in length and are required to be converted into text by typing out what is being said on them.  For other work from home transcription opportunities, check out this post.
Counted amongst the most valuable tech giants, Amazon is also a massive global market where virtually anyone can cash in on the rising tide of eCommerce if you have the right business idea. But, like everything else that involves money, you have to do quite a bit of work to earn it. In this case, you need to do tons of research (looking for generic products such as clocks, key chains and mugs to attach your brand to) as well as developing a sensible inside sales strategy that'll help you generate profits from your private label side business idea. For an incredible deep dive on how  to launch this kind of business idea, check out how digital marketer Neil Patel recently did this as a public experiment right here on his blog.
Baking cookies and cupcakes at home is another emerging trend in Singapore. Food catering can be a lucrative business for stay-at-home moms who can run the operations from home. You can start part-time, working only weekends, then expand full-time as you get more clients. This is a serious business venture where the individual has to be adept in supply chain management and food quality assurance. 

Fashion, style, and grooming continue to be a lucrative side business idea that can be done in your hours outside of work. If you know how to mend clothes, then you have a growing market of budget-conscious and/or personalization-obsessed customers. Entrepreneur says you need around two thousand dollars to start a decent side business idea in this niche but there’s no harm in starting smaller and growing from there, as long as you can make magic with needle and thread.
If you have experience with marketing, SEO or a knack for getting people excited about the products and services you use on a regular basis, think about refining your skills and putting them to work as a small business marketing consultant in your region—especially if you can become a local SEO expert and can help local clients rank higher in their search results as your side business idea. Businesses of all sizes are in constant need of bringing in more customers, which is where you come in with your business idea. Start by pitching some of these small business marketing ideas by Brian Downard and you'll be sure to impress the first set of clients you begin working with in your area.
Has every app conceivable already been invented? Not at all. There are literally millions of apps that have yet to be created. Some have an obvious demand while some apps introduce new emerging ideas. Going into this business is very rewarding because it is getting easier to create software applications. Additionally, new users tend to multiply, which continues to create more demand for apps.
Digital marketing is an umbrella term used to describe services such as social media marketing, SEO auditing, content writing, etc. Developing, implementing and managing marketing campaigns calls for creative thinking and an understanding of target audiences. If you are a people person, with a knack for coming up with crisp, creative content that can grasp the attention of audiences, this is the job for you. If you are internet-savvy and possess basic computer skills, that’s an added benefit.
It may be easier to get the housework done or run to the grocery store during the day when my son is awake so he can “help” me and save my work that requires a lot of focus for naps or after bedtime. This way I feel like I am spending time with my son when I am with him and still accomplishing something that needs to be done at some point in the day anyway. – Meaghan
The hardest part for me is remembering that I am not a stay-at-home mom. It is easy to fall into the thought process of “I should be taking him that class every week,” or “I should bring him to that play date” because the other parents you know that are home with their kids are able to do those things. It’s hard not to feel the mom guilt over not doing it all, especially while being at home with a “flexible schedule.” The reality is if I decide to do those things I then have to work more in the evening or on weekends which eats into our family time
People love their pets, and many pet owners want to memorialize their non-human friends through artwork. Pet portraits businesses create custom portraits of pets for customers. Many businesses are run by a single artist, but businesses can also have several artists on staff. The mediums these artists create offer a different feel than photographs -- which pet owners can take themselves -- provide.
This last one was probably the best thing for me, my team emotionally. We never want our children to think work is something that parents do that takes time and attention away from them. Work is healthy and good for them, and I think it’s appropriate to find ways to engage them is good for their overall development and could shape their attitude towards work in the future.
If you are interested, stop by. And if you, Alexa, would like to know more or would at least add a note to your list that single moms can earn a real, full time income in the adult industry – on their own, no need to get naked or do gross stuff. It’s hard work though and I also basically work full time – with the exception that I work whenever I want, so I always have time for the kids.

Many families with kids, including single-parents, have very limited time resources, creating a demand for part-time child care providers (and a business idea opportunity for you). If you love kids and have some spare time, you can earn plenty of side income by looking after children while their parents are away. Just be sure to identify the particular age group you're comfortable caring for and you’re all set after any necessary certifications. Establishing a home-based daycare center capable of servicing six or more kids is also a lucrative way to really expand upon this business idea if you have the right environment for it.
My job has been called cute, put in air quotes and been the butt of many jokes. I doubt most other writers, event planners, photographers and social media, marketing or branding strategists (all hats I wear) who have an actual office or brick-and-mortar business have experienced the same. Why is our job viewed as a hobby or passion project if we work from home? What is it about the confines of the house that constitutes less respect?
For me personally, I do 98% of my calls while Mr. FW watches Babywoods–it is really tough to be on a call with her in the background. When she was tiny, she’d sleep/nurse on me during calls, which was fine, but now that she’s an active toddler, I can’t do calls with her (except in rare circumstances where I absolutely have to and then we make it work. She once sat on my lap during a Skype video chat, which actually totally worked 😉 ).

Anyone who is passionate about pets and nutrition may be interested in opening a pet bakery business. Pet bakeries usually start out selling through other retailers or online, rather than their own brick-and-mortar store. Because business owners don’t need to keep specific retail hours for customers, it’s possible to start this business up while maintaining another job.

People who love dogs and other people may be well-suited for owning a dog training business, as the work involves interacting with both dogs and their owners. Patience is another valuable attribute, because training dogs often requires repeating the same drill multiple times. Dog training businesses usually operate during the day, which can make it difficult to run a business while keeping a traditional day job.


The willingness and ability to ignore your child, to some extent. My theory is sort of that children, for most of human history, have been strap and go--you put them in a sling, and you go back to foraging for berries or whatever. And that's what I did--I popped her in a sling, and she stayed in it. She walked on the late side of normal, but outside of making my mother a crazy person, there weren't any negative effects.

I’ve tried everything to be able to work from home. Blogging, crowd sourcing, essential oils, digital assistant. The thing that I’ve been successful at is a Beachbody coach. I run challenge groups and help teach that the key to a healthy life means eating healthy and working out. I get to be a motivator and support for people and I love it! – Markell Corpus at Journey to a New You
Busy schedules can stress people out. It can also disrupt family life to the point that busy parents and homework-laden kids barely have time to prepare decent dinners and weekend meals. Hence, the surprising demand for part-time family chefs as a business idea. If cooking healthy and delicious meals is your thing, then this lucrative side  business idea can supplement your regular income by helping feed busy homes. Hear Gaby Dalkin's story of going from side business idea to full-time blogger while she was a part-time personal chef right here on my podcast.
I was a virtual assistant for awhile. I was in Real Estate but decided it wasn’t for me because I was out and never home. I decided to start a Real Estate Virtual Assistant business and let all my Real Estate friends know about it. I was hired by a property manager and did all the work at home and got some work from other agents but then they started getting greedy and tried to lower my prices or get free work from me. I was making $15 an hour from the property manager (I was only inputting receipts and I’d update the MLS listings or put in new listings for her and answer calls for her) but then she decided she wanted to pay me $30 per month to do what I was doing plus show the rentals to prospective tenants (showings could last up to an hour per person..sometimes she got non stop calls about some houses)and deposit all the rental money (that takes hours because there were several different banks she’d have to go to)….I said No way and decided that business wasn’t for me. It’s not really hard to get into but be tough and stick to your prices and don’t get your business from friends (like I did) because then they expect you to give them a break.
Great article! I’m doing direct selling at the moment and absolutely loving it! Never thought it would be something I would get into but when you have a strong desire to stay at home with your child everyday but still need to earn money you will give anything a go right 🙂 and I’m so glad I did. The work involved itself could not be easier, I run my business all from my phone. And I also love the personal development you gain from an industry like this, you learn so much about yourself more than you could from any job working for someone else in my opinion. Don’t get me wrong it is hard work, you have to put a lot in to be successful, but when you are putting all that time and effort into yourself and creating success for YOU rather than an employer / boss the results are so rewarding!! If anyone is looking into getting on board something similar I am happy to pass on some info 🙂 Bec.
You can take online classes to improve your voice and get variations in your intonation. You need to get an understanding on natural pauses in conversation, breathing, holding the mic, intonation, etc. In order to capture a crystal clear recording, you might want to set up a home studio. Once you create a voice demo audio file, market it to various recording studios. And yes, there is a need to visit recording studios, so this is not a complete stay-at-home job!

You'd have to be living under a rock not to know about the success many moms have had in making money blogging. That's the good news. The bad news is that the market for any blog, mom-related or not, is crowded. Successful blogging requires picking a niche and focusing on reaching the target market for that topic. There are many ways to make money from blogging, including affiliate marketing, advertising (i.e., Adsense), creating and selling information products and more.

It's one chunk of the day when you can generally expect to be able to plug away without interruption (at least not from your child). Whether your kid sleeps for one hour or three, use this time to finish assignments that require your complete focus and concentration, says Erin O'Donnell, a mom of two and freelance writer and editor in Milwaukee, who often schedules work-related phone calls during her 20-month-old Jonas's naps. If for some reason he isn't tired, they have quiet time instead: O'Donnell puts him in his crib with books and closes the door. "I can usually get in 20 minutes of work before he grows restless," she says. If Jonas wakes up while she's on a work call and begins crying, O'Donnell has trained herself to resist hanging up and rushing right in to check on him. "It hurts a little bit to listen to him," she says. "But it won't kill me -- or him." Plus, she believes it's important for him to learn how to soothe himself.
Hi holly. I really like all your ideas. I would like to ask if you have any suggestion or ideas about handicraft making or do it yourself that will make a good profit at the same time can be useful for all ages and sexes?i think i am a handicraft person but i dont know how to use it profitably. Thank you very much. And Im waiting for your response.
What I realized with working from home and making money online is that the more people you genuinely help, the more money you end up making. Helping others to succeed will create you a large following of loyal customers. If you are sick of failing in this industry, frustrated with not getting any results or making sales, or having issues generating quality traffic, please contact me at: youronlinesuccessplan@gmail.com

Business owners should have a flexible schedule, so they can meet guests during the day, and take care of any issues that arise at night. Additionally, they should plan on working anytime the bed and breakfast is open, which for a typical B&B is every day. They don’t usually close down for holidays because these are busy travel times, but some bed and breakfast owners take several weeks, sometimes even a month or more, off during the slow season.
Everyday I do only what’s most important to me. Subtext: there’s a lot that doesn’t get done. However, I am 100% ok with that because, just as I only spend money on the things that matter most to me, I only spend my time in ways that are meaningful to me. I could afford to send my daughter to daycare and I could afford not to work, but I keep her at home and I work because those are the things I want to do. 
People who like dogs and caring for them may be interested in opening a dog breeding business. A business owner should be in good enough physical condition to interact with, care for and play with puppies -- which are often on the floor. Business owners also usually help female dogs with births, so owners should be able to make themselves available when a dog goes into labor. It also helps to not be off-put by the birthing process.

Do you play a musical instrument well enough to teach it to others? How about taking your skills at producing music or sound design and teaching others as a service-based business idea based on your experience? Private music instructors in all disciplines charge upwards of $20-100/hr (or more depending upon skill and experience), and you don’t necessarily have to do them in person, either. This makes for a great side business idea that can channel your passion for music into profits.
I’ve been a full-time stay at home mom for 14 years, and a homeschooling mom for almost 10 years. The only thing I’ve “lost” in any of it is any further idea of what I want to “be” when they’re done growing up – my previous profession was sort of decimated by lots of corporations merging into larger corporations then doing a lot of outsourcing. I’ll be 57 (had kids late) when the last one is done with high school. Maybe I’ll go back to school then myself, LOL. Husband says not to worry, that I’ll never “have” to work, but at very least I’ll have to volunteer somewhere.
I just started my Pure Romance business! Haven’t made any money yet, but what I love about the company is that it not only helps enhance couple’s relationships, but it promotes women’s sexual health and wellness which is something I feel strongly about. I will be starting a blog soon, but I do have my PR consultant website set up in the meantime. My goal is to be a stay at home mom.

Reiki patients across the globe have achieved relief from medical conditions ranging from the common cold to cancer and leukemia. The practitioner transfers healing energy to the client by placing their hands near the prescribed position for several moments. While several sessions may be required, the patient walks away feeling relaxed, radiant, and more balanced.
Have you ever heard of an actuary? In the past, it was used to describe a person who analyzes statistics in order to calculate risks and premiums for insurance companies. However, the job title has expanded to include many more industries that can benefit from data mining and economic forecasting. If you have a degree in mathematics, finance or statistics, look into getting your license through Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS) or Society of Actuaries (SOA).
Find an audience for your passion or hobby and you’re all set to monetize something you love via a niche website as a side business idea. That of course, is easier said than done, something not intended for the faint of heart. Prepare to invest a lot of your time, but if you can hurdle the steep challenges and positively answer a few key questions on whether the website business idea you’re thinking about is profitable, then you can begin building it.

The antique market is not as lively as it used to be. But there’s still money to be had from the industry if you love rare old stuff and possess the skill of restoring them to their former glory. To start an antique refurbishing business at home, you’ll likely need a few thousand dollars to build out a basic workshop and stock it with all of the right treatments and materials in order to truly excel with this side business idea. Start small by borrowing around what you can, and learning the basics of the trade as a side hustle before investing in a ton of equipment.
Great stuff. Much of our remote culture (we are 20ppl today) came from the inspiration we got from reading your stories. We have a fully remote and distributed team and deal with the same types of challenges. In the beginning it wasn’t natural to have our kids show up in the screen. It felt wrong and unprofessional. As time goes by, we learn to relax into the uniqueness of this experience and enjoy it fully. Thanks for inspiring us on the way. Luís @ skore.io
That's why I'm a huge advocate of always starting a side business while working full-time, so that you can test your way into your new product or service, get feedback, validate the business idea, and start generating income before you quit your job. If you can master the art of scaling a side business idea while keeping your day job, you'll have no trouble succeeding once you're fully self-employed.
