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.


Seven years ago, before I had children, I taught music full-time at a conservatory. I had 47 students. I left the conservatory when I had my first baby, and now I teach piano lessons in my home part-time during the day. I have four little ones, and the piano moms and dads babysit for me while I teach their children. In return, they get a discount on lessons.
It’s not all bad, of course. I never have to miss anything my kids are a part of, and I do get to enjoy a lot of time with my little people. I have been forced to learn to compartmentalize my time and set clear boundaries, which is a good thing. I have had to learn not to feel guilty for working in front of my kids, though admittedly I still struggle with that sometimes. My husband more than pulls his own weight, so overall, the benefits outweigh the challenges.
Finding a work-at-home job can seem daunting at first, particularly for moms who may already have a full life. But when trying to make the shift from the office to a work-at-home job, the first thing to consider is whether you can telecommute your current job. If the answer is no, you may want to start thinking about moving your career in a different direction.
What do you consider your most important piece of marketing material? Your catalog? Your direct mail? Your advertisements? Your social media accounts? How about your business card? Is that still as important as it once was or has it been replaced with LinkedIn and other contact apps on your never-more-important smartphone? Historically, your business card […]
You might be thinking, “Why do I still need childcare? I work at home!” Yes, it’s true you now have the “luxury” of working at home in your pajamas while sharing cheddar bunnies with your toddler—but don’t forget you are still a work at home mom. Working from home moms are MUCH different than stay at home moms. You still have deadlines to meet, virtual client meetings to schedule, and even the occasional in-person meeting. (Yup, you have to actually get dressed for those—GASP!). I know childcare can be super expensive but I beg you not to skimp on this one. It will save your sanity six months from now when you are stretched out to the max, on deadline and can’t take the guilt of playing another episode of Curious George. The truth is you need time and mental space to really work. You’ll be able to give your best to your clients if you hire some extra help. Your kids will be taken care and you can work guilt-free. If you’re just starting out, even a few hours of childcare 1–2 days a week will help. Right now we are “nanny-sharing” in four to six-hour chunks a few times a week. I also work on the weekends while my husband is with the kids. Other moms I know hire college students, do a childcare co-op or even trade childcare time with other moms.
Thank you a lot for this amazing article. I am from Armenia but now I live in Russia. I have refused from my job to come to Russia and now I would like to gain a little money at home and bring up my son. Is it possible to earn money from Russia? What easy methods of gaining will you suggest me in order I could spend less efforts and time, staying more with my son? 

What Ive seen over the years is that my friends who quit working entirely did not go back to work unless they couldnt survive without the income. This was due to a combination of reasons: it wasn’t easy to get back in and they had to start at the bottom; they and their families had grown used to have a parent always available and it was now hard to imagine not having that. This meant that the new job had to be high-paying and flexible in order to be worth it and this is rarely offered to someone who’s been out of the job market for a while unless she has a rare, in-demand skilll.
You also need to make sure that you are working for employers who are OK with you fitting your work in around the needs of your children. The best jobs for stay-at-home moms offer flexibility so that you are able to work before your kids wake up (or after they go to bed), from your phone at the playground, or during naps, free play, and TV time. And you will need to be self-motivated and willing to do whatever is necessary in order to ensure that your work is getting finished.

I absolutely love this blog. I really enjoyed looking at everyone’s ways of making money. I have a small business teaching Kindermusik classes and I’m a Brand Partner with Nerium international. Both companies are really family friendly, I make my own hours, and I’ve met some fantastic people. Nerium is a quickly growing company and the skin care products are the best I’ve ever used.
I have been readong your blog for awhile but never commented. I was so thrilled when you announced your homestead purchase, hearing anyones dream come to fruition after hard work is always exciting. I stay home with my two kids under 3.5yrs. I heard a lot as well about stimulation and I worried. Kids parallel play until they are at least 2-3years old though, they are more interested in us. Mama guilt can be around the corner with any decision we make though. What I discovered is babies want our love and our time. Sharing our world is thrilling. Discovering fans, the washing machine, animals-it’s amazing seeing everything through their eyes. But you realise they ‘need’ very little. Well done on your beautiful baby and the choices you are making.

If you are looking at work-from-home jobs for moms, then you might want to consider creating your own job by starting a home-based business. A 2012 survey found that 69 percent of small businesses are started at home. Of those, 72 percent are run by women.7 So there are a lot of motivated women just like you who have gotten their own businesses up and running from the comfort of their own homes. If this sounds interesting to you, then take a look at some of the possibilities:
[…] 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.

I just read this and love it! Question though- where is the link to the Pilates Body Program? I clicked the one in the post but I got a “page not found” message. 🙁 I feel like I’m floundering trying to balance working at home, two small girls, cleaning, cooking, living… 😉 This post was great! And we did Babywise with our second, and oh my word, what a fantastic difference!!
I am a new mom to the most amazing little boy who is almost 4 months old. I went back to work when he was 8 1/2 weeks old and regret it more and more each day! I hold so much guilt that my husband and I didn’t skrimp and save every penny while I was pregnant so that I could stay home with him, even if just for a few more months. But since being back at work, I have gone over our budget/bills a thousand times and just can’t find a way to make it work for me to stay home. I started a blog last year before I was pregnant but that hasn’t taken off like I hoped because it was hard to find time to blog working full-time and now even harder working full-time and taking care of my little one. I love the ideas above but feel like I don’t know where to start to make these successful such as my bog or how to become a VA or consultant. I just want to be able to earn $500-600 a month from home and we could totally make it work! Please help with suggestions!
Stay at home, homeschooling mom of 4. My husband does a great job of supporting our family but I’ve become an independent distributor for 2 or 3 companies that we just love their products! My favorite for a home business would probably be Lilla Rose since the products are something almost any woman/girl can use and the company support is so great. – Tyra Whitlow at Lilla Rose

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.

The lens through which people see these statistics may well depend on their own background. It might seem a low number, if you work in fields like management, business, and financial operations where 38 percent people do some work from home. Same is true of people age 25 or older who have bachelor’s degrees of whom 39 percent do some or all of their work from home. People holding multiple jobs (aka moonlighters) are also more likely to work at home than are  single job holders—36 percent compared with 23 percent.

I just started my blog 2 months ago, and I am already working non-stop on it. Between the blog and the projects (also JUST starting) it is a full time job! I LOVE IT! But totally agree we need to make time for FAMILY. Once I was even cranky because I could not finish a project to post on the blog… CRANKY with my family! So I backed off a bit… and had a laugh. and did the project 2 days later.


If you're a good typist, you may be able to pick up a little cash from home using that skill. If you're a really great typist, well, then you may be able to earn some good money in transcription. In addition to general transcription, there are opportunities for transcribing in both the medical and legal fields. In some specialized fields, certification may be required.
My husband and I were builders in the military. Now, I’m a stay-at-home mom and he goes to school full-time, so our budget is extremely tight. It’s even tighter with hundreds of dollars going towards debt each month. We decided to use our construction experience to renovate and sell our home for a profit. We plan to use the money to pay off most, if not all, our debt. The next house should make enough money for us to pay ourselves a monthly salary while we work on the house after that and so on. This will be our “job,” so we get to work at home and create our own schedule as a family.
3. Office Space: Your preschooler’s art table will not make a suitable desk for your laptop, and the bean bag chair in the playroom probably isn’t the best place to set up shop. Make sure your home has some sort of space to designate as your “office.” If not, get creative and figure out a way to turn an already-in-use room (such as the laundry room or the guest bedroom) into your work-from-home space.

Currently working as a transcriptionist, Lisa recently wrote an ebook detailing how others can also launch a successful home-based transcription career – one of many legitimate remote job opportunities you can find when you stop by Work at Home Mom Revolution!

I am a nurse and have telecommuted from home for 7 years. I worked full time until a year ago, and my company requires I have child care on days I work. I had to have several years of nursing experience in a hospital before I could land this work (for me it was ICU and Labor and Delivery). I earned certification as a managed care nurse and it gave me more options. Part-time is usually not an option in insurance, but I volunteered to learn every line of business we have, and when they created out first float pool position, it meant I was the best candidate to pilot it. I now cover people when they are off, work 4-8 days a month, and still telecommute.


Having strong relationships with your extended network of family and friends is also important. When you start freelancing, don’t fall off the face of the earth! Whether it’s taking time to grab coffee with a friend, calling your mom when you have a free moment or meeting up for a playdate, these small but meaningful actions will keep you connected with your community.
I am a better mother and a better wife because of my work and my community. I am finding myself, and I am finding others like me. In fact, as much as I’ve experienced a shift in perspective about working and motherhood, I am raising children who see that creating a professional life and raising children are not mutually exclusive. Both my daughters and my son are seeing that it’s possible to flourish on all fronts, and frankly, as a working mom, that seems like the best kind of feminist revolution.
While all these occupations may sound old-fashioned, this just shows that the way people work has changed in the last 100 years...and it hasn't. And likewise the way that people will work and work from home will continue to evolve. There are any number of ways to carve out a living from home: working as a telecommuter for a big company, being a remote call center agent, signing on to the gig economy and picking of short tasks or direct selling products like Avon. 
But there is one scenario that these numbers cannot possibly reflect — the number of moms who have successfully launched part-time businesses or side hustles out of their homes. Although there is no hard data on those numbers, more than 8.6 million U.S. businesses are owned by women. Undoubtedly, many of those businesses are run by mothers who manage their businesses’ affairs while also keeping an eye on the kids.
Olivia Howell, 33, works in social media management and cares for her two sons, ages two and five, in New York. She works throughout the day, every day, on her phone until around 1:00 A.M. and tries to wake up before her kids. ”I feel so blessed I get to be flexible for my boys,” she says. “But I never have time for myself ever, and I never sleep, like, really.”
Having your own business definitely provides flexibility, as well as other advantages. When I was getting my business off the ground, my son was three-months-old and I brought him with me everywhere—including the bank while I opened a business account and to client visits. No one blinked an eye; they understood my need to be both a mother and a businesswoman.
So I looked into work at home options (I wrote a whole post about it here). Blogging kept coming up as the perfect side hustle for a stay at home mom. That was where I found Suzi and Blog by Number! I was instantly hooked. I’d loved writing in high school, and I’d read so many mom blogs over the years – and Suzi was telling me I could be just like them!

I blog at Smithspirations where I share encouragement and inspiration for Christian homemakers in the areas of faith, family, and natural living. I’m also a Lilla Rose hair accessory consultant, which allows me to earn income and occasionally get out of the house! A win for a homeschooling & busy mom of 5!

Thankfully, I am my own boss so I can run my business however I like. I get to decide which things I include my daughter in and which times I leave her at home for the sake of professionalism. Often, when people ask to meet for coffee I suggest getting coffee and going for a walk instead. It allows me to have meetings without needing a babysitter, and personally I prefer walking and talking anyway. It’s more natural and better for our health. 🙂

I am a working mother. I am blessed to have my mom care for my children. I do pay her but she is very affordable. It works well for us since I make more money at my job and I have excellent benefits as well. My mom is able to earn some money and she has a great relationship with my girls. If I didn’t have family to care for my kids, then my husband would be the one to stay home.

Greetings Alexa, AWESOME post.. you really have hit on everything. I went the blogging route.. and love it. Yet I didn’t start there.. as I looked through your list I had to chuckle.. as I remember doing the customer service from home.. See I’m a single mom.. my oldest is now 14 and I started searching for work from home opportunities when she was 1 years old.. I built everything up… and have been full time when my oldest turned 13!! Started by exchanging time for money.. with the customer service and that kept me in the place of having to exchange time for money.. so I decided to build my own business.. and this is what set me FREE.. Love your post as it really leads one through the journey of a VERY possible life.. Thanks so much for putting this information together. Keep Smiling!
I am an Artist based on Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. I do customised artwork’s for home and businesses. As a fulltime mother and a responsible housewife my work is a great place for me for space and freedom and definitely for my satisfaction. I like to do painting and I really when my artwork’s beautifies and fulfils other’s house and places. recently I invited to work with Summer foundation to paint for disable people and the money earned for artwork’s will be spent to help the helpless people. I am really happy my artwork’s are using for helping people.
Like other WAHMs I spoke with, I have a partner who supports my career. But the fallout from my stressful situation did strain our relationship. In the evenings after work, my son wanted “dada” and I wanted dada’s arms—to carry the baby away from me. We tried not to have the “who does more” fight, because we were both always “on.” But I shouldered more emotional work, which did make me resent him at times.

If you enjoy making business decisions but you’re ready to quit the 9-to-5, you may want to look into working as a part-time executive. Employers are increasingly embracing more flexible schedules and holding team meetings over Skype -- so there’s a good chance you can find part-time work that still allows you to be well-connected to and influential at a particular business.
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 🙂

Couldn’t agree more!! God first, then spouse, then children, THEN everything else! I don’t have a blog, or run my own business, but I do work as a nurse, one 12-hr shift per week. I’m home every other day of the week. It’s easy to get frustrated and lose patience when you’re with your kids, what feels like 24-7… However, we (those at-times frustrated mommies) chose to be a parent, and it is our responsibility to do what God has called us to do… –Train up a child in the way he should go…” Prov 22:6 — Thanks for reminding us what is most important in life and helping us to remember to focus on the eternal things 🙂 Be blessed!
Thank you for raising this — It sounds like she actually wanted to stay home and Mr F is cool with that, so this isn’t really a response to their particular choice or scenario. But most people who are at the age when they’re having babies are not anywhere near their peak earning potential. Choosing to stay at home for 1, 2, 5 or more years is exit-ramping from all of that potential income/career growth down the road, and most studies show that women never make up that lost ground when they do return to the workplace. It seems like it just perpetuates a bad cycle: Women make less money than men do, women have children and stay at home to care for them, sacrificing income and work opportunities, and then when they do go back to work they make less money because they now have less experience than people (men) who stayed in the game.
I’m trying to build my business, so I can stay at home. So currently I am working a more-than-full-time job out of the house, and working my Jamberry business in any free time I have! I’ve never liked selling things, but I fell in love with Jamberry’s product, so I knew even if I only bought for myself and family id come out on top. I feel safe having them on my nails, as they’re non-toxic! – Andrea Stewart at Jamberry Nails
For many millennial women, staying at home is both a desire and a convenience, but it's not about having your cake and eating it, too. Taking care of a child is a full-time job and these women add more work on top of it so they can do more than simply survive and subsist. Millennial women are rejecting the status-quo pigeonhole of “mother equals homemaker” and are finding value in both caring for their families and holding careers.

I recently started my own business with Rodan + Fields! A definite skeptic at first; I watched my dear friend grow personally & professionally for 2.5 years before deciding to join her! I am beyond thrilled that I have! If there are any Mama’s out there who are curious about R + F, I would love to fill you in on the details so you can see if it would be a good fit for you!! 🤗 

We stuck with the babysitter because my daughter was just under a year when I started working, and we really wanted her to have one-on-one attention. We ended up paying the sitter about half of my income, so it wasn’t a very frugal childcare option, but we don’t regret it at all. She developed a strong bond with the sitter, who did many things that I would’ve done with her had I been home, like taking her to swim lessons, ballet class, playgrounds, the library, and eventually preschool.
Deanne Akerson: As a maternity and breastfeeding apparel brand, our customers are moms. Our team of work-from-home-moms are uniquely positioned to deliver an incredible customer experience simply because they’re moms themselves, and they understand the needs of our customers perfectly! They know what it’s like to be pregnant, breastfeeding, sleep-deprived, because they have been there so recently themselves. This is a benefit to the company in so many ways; from knowing what kind of content creation to focus on, what new apparel products to make next, and how to interact on social media. It simply makes sense to employ work-from home moms who are also experiencing the same crazy, beautiful life stage as our customers.
