The field of health care has always been a top choice for working women. In fact, over 75 percent of health care practitioners, technicians, and technologists are women. And almost 88 percent of health care support occupations are filled by women. So it makes sense that the health industry can provide opportunities to earn income for stay-at-home moms. Take a look at these two options:
The great thing is there is full training & support, it’s not MLM and there is no cold calling or stocking products. It’s in the personal Development industry and developing my personal growth is not just beneficial to me, it’s helping my husband and children have a different and very positive perspective on life – how wonderful to incorporate this into your family teachings!
Are you fluent in multiple languages? Did you kill it on your SATs or are you particularly knowledgeable about a certain topic? Consider being an online tutor! You still get the satisfaction of seeing first-hand the difference you have made in a student’s life…all from the comfort of your home. Tutors are typically part time and are paid hourly, but depending on your expertise and needs of your client(s), you may be able to secure full time -- and super lucrative -- work.
Medical transcriptionist—A very short course, maybe even one that's offered online, could prepare you to transcribe medical documents for doctors and other medical professionals. You will take doctors' recordings of things like patient progress reports and physicians' notes and accurately and clearly transcribe them into written form for patients' files. This can be one of the best stay-at-home mom jobs because it does not require a lot of training or equipment and the work can easily be completed around your kids' schedules. The pay range is $10.42 to $24.72 or higher per hour, and it is estimated that there will be 14,600 job openings.

Similar to a wedding painter, your job is to capture that magical day. Thankfully for those of us not good with paintbrushes, there is photography and videography. The time commitments are similar to a live wedding painter as your strict time commitment is attending the weddings. In this field, you can charge anywhere from $1000-5000 for each wedding. As you gain more skills and have more clients, you can change your price to reflect that.
So I sat down and re-evaluated what was working and what wasn’t. I had to make choices that were hard to make. I hate letting people down but I told my dear clients and colleagues at the studio that I would no longer be able to teach on Fridays. My babysitter changed schedules and the stress of finding someone new/re-arranging our whole routine for a few hours of teaching wasn’t going to help in removing stress from the week. 

4. Seek the support of fellow working moms. Talk regularly with other moms who have gone back to work about their experiences and challenges, both practical and emotional. Going back to work is a common choice, but that doesn’t mean that it’s easy and that you won’t feel occasional heartache to be away from your kids (you will!). But there is safety and support in numbers, and speaking to people who have been where you’re about to go will be extremely helpful in plotting your own return to the working world.

Tiny house blogger/podcaster/entrepreneur/minimalist. It seems counter sometimes but if you choose to live in a smaller house you’ll spend a lot less to upkeep it and you won’t feel the need to fill it up either! Both cost savings that may allow you to live well off of less income and potentially enable sahming (I don’t think I can say it like a verb???) Macy Miller at www.Minimotives.com
The lack of proper maternity leave, the rising costs of childcare, unsupportive or nonexistent family policies and the ever-present wage gap lead millennial women to take their futures by the reins and preside over their homes as SAHMs, making money and a fulfilling life for their families, as best as they're able to, even if that means pinching pennies.
For many moms, the idea of earning money from home rather than trekking off to an office each day has a great amount of appeal. You can get to work in an instant, do your job in your sweatpants if you like, and be at home for your kids when school is out. But setting up that situation for yourself – and making it financially viable – can be tricky. So how do you become a work-at-home mom?
I am getting my MSN in education too so I can have more work from home options that won’t require child care, such as teaching online nursing courses. I started a blog as well and just bought my second site and will launch it soon. I hope to create passive income from freelancing and owning several websites. All of our children have some extra needs and that means many extra medical appointments and school visits during the month, and we really need a parent at home most of the time. I’ll do whatever it takes to still earn and be home.

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!
In a perfect world my baby wouldn’t watch any TV, I’d cook him lunch from scratch (thus saving money AND making sure it’s super healthy), and I’d sit down on the couch with my husband for a few hours every evening. I wouldn’t often have to re-schedule a meeting or work Sunday afternoon. And I would never, ever, drag myself out of bed at 2 am to edit an email because it had to go out the next day.  I would go out for a girls night now and then… or maybe join a mommy n’me sort of group?

I’m a homeschooling, work-at-home mom, cooking all our food (mostly from scratch), taking care of our home, and also running our businesses. Even though my kids see me work every day, I am home with them and they know that even if sometimes I am distracted, we are still all home together. I see them way more then if they were in school all day.  Some moms like to work while their kids are asleep at night and in the morning, but I’m brain-dead by night time! I need to work during the day while my mind is fresh!
I don’t use scheduling and time blocking. Instead, I follow Daily Routines. For example, every Monday we have one set of tasks, while Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday’s tasks look completely different. When I try to make my life more scheduled, I get agitated! Tasks always seem to take way longer than I always think they will. Kids make messes, they’re hungry, they poop…the schedule is always messed up. People who can keep a tight time block schedule are superheroes. How they do it literally boggles my MIND!
Your blog is very inspiring! Am currently in EBA 3.0 and I need for this to work. LOL! I been a SAHM for years and recently became a school bus driver to earn money and the schedule works around the kids for the most part. But the Hubby’s schedule is changing in Jan. and I have to make this work. Thanks so much all the freebies and inspiring stories.
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 🙂
5. Home-based business startups—You should note that some of these opportunities are definitely legitimate, but there are also a lot of scams. Some of the major red flags to watch for are mentioned above and include companies that are requiring large investments up front, emphasizing that no experience is needed, and promising high earnings. One of the most common scams involves setting up medical billing businesses. There are definitely ways to obtain real work-from-home jobs in that field, but you will need medical billing training and may have to gain experience by working in an office setting prior to being able to work from home.

This is such a great blog! My name is Susan Kirt and I am also with Rodan and Fields. I have been with this company for 5 years and I work it alongside my full time teaching position in Farragut. I have to tell you that this is a LEGIT company! I started, not wanting to sell a thing, but I love presenting information to people- good information ( that’s the teacher in me). Fast forward 5 years and this business has allowed me to stay home with my little boys for two years, before they started school. I spent MAYBE 10 hours a week building my business ( no inventory) around the nooks and crannies of my day. Now I work this side gig to help pay for family vacations, monthly bills and any unexpected turns life throws at us.
