Hi, I’m a stay at home mom of 3 young children (5, 3, & 1) and am a promoter for Thrive!! It’s a fantastic company to work for! It’s absolutely FREE to sign up!!! No hidden fees anywhere!! It’s a cloud based company, which allows more money to be redistributed back into the pockets of the hard working promoters. If you’re interested in promoting email me at [email protected].

Our child care arrangements have changed over the years – from Grandma, to full-time daycare, to being home with me while on extended maternity leave. The current arrangement is that the two youngest ones go to daycare three days per week. Mr. Smith (who makes less than me) stays home with them one day per week, and my mom helps me with them while I work from home one day per week. It’s not ideal, but it give us some semblence of balance, for now. Mr. Smith likes working – in construction. So while it might have made financial sense for him to stay at home, he can’t do his work while watching the kids.


Typing is obviously a key skill, but accuracy and good grammar are important as well. Transcriptionists are paid by the lines or words typed, the audio minute transcribed or, less frequently, by the hour. Work-at-home transcriptionists are usually independent contractors. As with writing, in many transcription positions, the work can be done during non-business hours or on a flexible schedule. If you are just starting out, you might try data entry from home first.
It is extremely important for mothers to find a balance between work and home. When you find a legit stay at home position, it may become even harder to find that balance because of the comfort of being home some of us may not be able to take work as serious not being in a work environment. My advice as a stay at home mom is to remember what and who you are doing this for. what is your motivation? my motivation is my daughter. she keeps me going and i will never give up knowing that she is counting on me. I wish every single one of you the best!

Renee Belbeck, a WAHM from Columbus, Ohio, and C.E.O. and founder of the National Association of W.O.M.E.N. (Women, Owners, Moms, Entrepreneurs, and Networkers), discovered a simple rule when her children were toddlers: "If I gave them a little quality time, I'd get two hours to work." She says the rule still holds true, even though her children are now 10 and 6.
Great article! So many mom’s looking for this article. My family and I started taking Zija superfood (SmartMix/SuperMix) a couple years ago and the natural energy drink about 1 year ago. We’ve had so many amazing health results. My sister started getting paychecks from Zija and we were like, wow this is really a great opportunity for a 2nd income. We have so many people asking us about the products it is so easy. And now they’ve created their workout drink division Ripstix and amazing essential oils Ameo which gives us something to sell to everyone! Great company and our team is so inspirational and motivated. http://Www.jbconyer.myzija.com http://www.jbconyer.myameo.com
Also please note, I’ve tried my very hardest to confirm the accuracy of all the sources mentioned in the list. To my knowledge every single one of the jobs I’ve listed is legitimate. However, I’m only human and sometimes I make mistakes. If you feel that one of these companies should be removed, let me know. Likewise, if you’ve had an awesome experience with a company that hasn’t made it on the list let me know in the comments and I’ll add it.
Work at Home Mom Revolution posts regularly about jobs that moms can do from home. Lisa Mills started the site in 2007 to help moms find the best resources out there. From freelance writing, to flex work to product ad service companies your can run form your home, Lisa keep moms updated on a variety of options. Lisa recently wrote  and published an ebook, which is available on Amazon.com, about starting a general transcription career from home. called Jump-Start Your Work at Home General Transcription Career: The Fast and Easy Way to Get Started!.  It’s filled with the tips and tricks she’s  learned (often the hard way) over her eight-plus year career in general transcription. Lisa herself is a work from home mom. She says “I’ve been working at home since I got my first computer back in the ’90s.  I’ve done a little bit of everything to make money from home, including selling on eBay, running an online used bookstore at Amazon.com, day trading stocks online, freelance writing, and publishing websites.”
Zeitcaster is a location-based service that delivers local event data. They frequently hire part-time data entry clerks to input time and location data, as well as categorize each event. Data Entry clerks are assigned to different types of events based on employee interest, for example: Art, Children & Family, Nature & Outdoors, etc. Pay is around $15/hour, likely dependent on location.
1. Envelope stuffing—You are asked to send in money to receive a starter kit and told that you will be paid for every envelope that you stuff and send. What you end up receiving is a package telling you how to advertise the scam. The goal is that you advertise the same envelope-stuffing scheme to others and allegedly get a kickback for every person who responds to your ads and signs up.
Quick Tip from Suzi: I love this technique! It’s just impossible as a mom to spend 24 hours focusing on your children, you’re going to run out of energy. Kid’s crave that one on one time, the physical touch, the eye contact. If you are truly present with them when you are present, you’ll fill the love bank so you can focus on yourself, your husband or your work later.

Weddings are a fantastic field to get into. Not only are there a lot of fun jobs associated with weddings, but also can be done mostly on your time. Most people hope to only marry once and are willing to pay a lot to have that perfect day. Additionally, weddings usually occur on weekends and/or at night giving you even more flexibility to work if your partner works during the week.
Hi, I'm Angela. I'm a writer at heart, blogger by trade. I spend my day chasing a toddler and negotiating with two tween daughters. In between, I drink coffee, meditate, scribble notes, take photos, schedule appointments, read, write and find joy in the little things. Sometimes I travel, sometimes I practice yoga. Everyday I create something new and share them on this blog at least 2-3 times a week.
Dog watching. One of the best jobs for stay at home moms who love their four-legged friends.  Rover.com matches dog owners who need pet sitting with pet lovers who want to help. Create your profile and set your prices. Must be in a city populated enough to find business, but the potential to earn hundreds of dollars per month is there. (Heather in Seattle nets $500 to $1000 per month this way.)

What you said Natasha!!! I am scared as well but kind of encouraged after reading all of the success stories. I have been at my current job for 6 years as well and am due in October. At 16 weeks I have already had complications with this pregnancy and am battling my employer on following my doctor’s orders. Despite doctor’s notes from emergency room visits my supervisor does not comprehend my high risk pregnancy. I never would have thought about being a SAHM until now. I loved this article and have found hope that I can do this!
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.
As long as you can follow directions and catch on quickly, data entry work is a breeze and you can do it at home. SigTrack offers seasonal data entry jobs from home. The tasks involve keying in voter registration and petition forms. You just need to make sure you meet a few technical requirements when it comes to having the right equipment for the job.
Less expensive options include help from friends, family and neighbors, hiring a mother's helper (such as a high school senior) and swapping playdates with other working parents. Michelle, a work-from-home mom from London, U.K., has an arrangement with her retired neighbor. "She looks after my kids for a couple of hours after school, twice a week, and in return I do her grocery shopping and wash her car," she tells SheKnows. "It works for both of us, and a lovely bonus is that she and my kids have developed a really great relationship." 
For many women, like me, who need both the income and the outlet, working part time is a blessed answer. I’m thankful that today loads of mothers are making strides in both the public and the private sectors from the comfort of their own couches. I’m glad I get to be one of them because the work-at-home-mom (otherwise known as WAHM) community is an excellent one. It seems that the tides are turning and the battle cry of the mommy wars are quieting; thanks to a new climate—a new way of leaning in, if you will—we seem to be coming together as a community of women, supporting each other in our choices to raise kids, explore creative endeavors, start businesses, and find ourselves in a whole new way.
Stacy: I touched on this before, but it is just such a common question from work-at-home moms. You’ll never find time to get it all done! There’s no way you can balance work, cleaning, homeschooling, keeping up with kids, being there for your husband, etc. – AND get everything done. You will always feel like there is a ball you are dropping somewhere. You will probably always feel out of balance at something!

9. Everyday Intrusions: Your “Hey, let’s have a playdate!” neighbor isn’t the only one who might not understand that “work” is a key part of being a work-at-home mom. From your own mom to your friends, people may start suddenly popping in, calling, or texting at all times of the day, thinking you’re just hanging out with the kids. As you make this transition, you’ll need a plan for politely handling people who don’t understand that yes, you are actually working. Just from home.


“Nobody can tell you who you are, and who you’re not, what you’re capable of and what you can’t possibly achieve. Only you can make your dreams come true. Only you can achieve what you’ve always wanted. STOP listening to the naysayers, the fear mongers and people who do not have your best interests at heart. START giving yourself permission to make this your best life ever.” — Natalie Sisson 
That said, many moms still struggle with the dilemma of wanting to stay home and raise their kids. They worry that they will not be able to afford it even if they are supplementing their partners' incomes. There are also concerns over finding balance. Being a stay-at-home mom, in and of itself, is not easy. And when you throw work into the mix, it becomes that much more difficult to balance the kids with all of your other responsibilities. But many moms just like you have proven that it can be done with a combination of hard work, determination, creativity, and ingenuity.

I’d be lying if I said being a work-from-home mom seemed like a dream job when I was younger. For a long time, I was so career-consumed and self-absorbed that I envisioned skipping over parenthood and embracing aunthood for eternity. I loved kids—I babysat, substitute taught and obsessed over photos of my nephews—but I wanted to travel the world, climb the corporate ladder and spend my free time at the spa. And so the thought of becoming a mother sat on the back burner.
When a new mom asks me my secret to maintaining my sanity with three kids, one of my first answer is this: figure out what kind of mother you are. (You can read more about it here.) I didn’t know this at the beginning of my motherhood journey and tried to do what everyone else was doing. Except, I didn’t understand that every mom has her own demons and struggles behind closed doors and I was chasing an ideal vision of motherhood that I didn’t fully comprehend.

Great list! I have been a stay at home Mom for going on 4 years now. It is absolutely a sacrifice, both emotionally and financially to do so. I started looking into ways I could supplement our income, since my husband gets paid monthly. I do before/after school care most days, then during my free time I float between Amazon mturk and Swagbucks. Neither will make you rich quick.


13.  Weekends are for family.  Okay, if there’s a project you can work on together (especially if you have older kids), then go for it.  But if you’ll spend the whole time frustrated that the kids are about to shoot you with the nail gun (like I would), then forget about it and hang with them.  Or–do what you all can and then move on to their choice.

Tutoring. My friend Jenny tapped into a high-income community and used her teaching background to earn $40/hour helping with homework. The real money came when she bundled three kids together for group homework sessions, charging each family $25/hr. That’s $75 for an hour of work that can be done while your baby naps. Or, while you pay a teenager $10 to watch the baby in another room. This is one of those work at home jobs for moms that can be both financially beneficial and persoanlly rewarding as you help children learn. 

Some moms don't want to play the "parent card," admitting to clients that a finicky child is preventing them from meeting a deadline. In that case, it may be best to keep the fact that you're working from home out of the conversation completely. Give your child a nonverbal "Do not disturb" when you need quiet time. Perhaps you could wear a tiara when you're on the phone to signify that kids are not allowed to make noise or interrupt -- unless there's an emergency. If you have an office door, tie a red ribbon on it when you're not to be bothered. This tactic is best for older kids; toddlers won't understand that they can't always have your undivided attention.

Writer or blogger—There are many working-at-home moms who supplement their incomes by writing or blogging. You need to be a skilled writer and must be willing to put in some time in order to secure clients and make a name for yourself. A few options that you could consider include writing books, e-books, technical documents, or blogs. Writers can earn anywhere from $14.67 to $57.10 or more an hour. However, bloggers' incomes are hard to predict since what you get out of it really depends on what you put into it. And there are many ways for bloggers to earn money, including by putting ads on their sites, selling products and services, writing sponsored posts, writing product reviews, and doing giveaways for companies.
Hi there! I have a direct sales for you to look at, if it hasn’t already been mentioned.. Jamberry!! I’m a WAHM who does Jamberry and I absolutely love it. I am looking to invite anyone who would like to try it to come to my website happysassytinker86.jamberry.com, as I do have everything posted up there and if you do have any questions you can contact me anytime!
After I started my own organizing and design business (plus the blog) I had a huge learning curve on how to balance work and family–I’m always tweaking what I do. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and tips. Just when you think you have it figured out, life happens. Getting encouragement and support from others is a blessing. Support is crucial for success.
I have only ever been a receptionist prior to having kids and have been out of the work force for almost 6 years. I desperately want to stay home, especially considering how much it costs for daycare these days, knowing I would have to pay out more than I could possibly make. I’m not good at sales, and I don’t feel too good at anything these days except for being a mom. You know how it goes your constantly on the go with one at school and one walking and climbing everywhere you never have time for yourself and when you get a minute to breathe your being told you have a full time job but it’s not work because you are not bringing in any money… So I guess is there anything out there that anyone can recommend for me to try from home? I’m no good at writing or blogging either, I’m actually not even on a computer much but even if I could make $20 a day something to contribute financially so I don’t feel so worthless right now. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated:).

Wow; only $700 – that really puts things into perspective! It feels much more approachable/attainable when you look at it that way! I actually have my fingers in a number of pies, as well – besides Amazon publishing and direct sales, I also bring in a little here and there through blogging (‘though that’s far from dependable), and I sell some of my photos through stock sites. (That REALLY doesn’t bring in a lot, but if the pictures are just sitting on my hard drive anyway, I might as well put them somewhere they can bring in a few cents.)
2. Multi-level marketing (MLM) companies—It is important to recognize that there are completely legitimate companies that can offer you great ways to earn extra money. It is likely that you know people who sell products for companies like Amway, Avon, and Tupperware, which are all MLM businesses. Many moms choose to sell products that they love for MLM companies because it often means that they can buy products at a discount and earn a few dollars on the side by selling items to their family, friends, and neighbors. But when signing up with an MLM company, there are important things to consider and watch out for. One study found that, in the first year of signing up, 50 percent of representatives dropped out. After five years, 90 percent of representatives dropped out. So these are not typically long-term opportunities. And, overall, they are often not profitable either. In fact, it was found that only one in 545 representatives made money after accounting for their expenses.9

The education and childcare sectors have been largely female-oriented. In fact, over 73 percent of educators and almost 95 percent of childcare workers are women.5 So it is no wonder that these fields can offer work-from-home jobs for stay-home moms. And some of them don't require a lot of additional training, so it can be relatively easy for you to get started. Check out some of your choices:
You could let him or her know that multiple reports have found that at-home workers can be more productive and engaged because their job satisfaction increases and they have fewer distractions from around the office. A 2014 report in the Harvard Business Review supported those points and also found that working from home resulted in less employee sick time as well as reduced overhead costs for businesses.8
If the emotional side of things wasn’t compelling enough, the finances absolutely sealed the deal for us. As people who like to do our research extensively (some might say obsessively… ), while I was pregnant I researched every single daycare I could find in our area. I interrogated parents about nanny shares, home daycares, large daycares, small daycares… you name it, I read about it. And what I deduced is that daycare in the Boston area is equal parts expensive and competitive. A number of centers I called (while I was all of 3 months pregnant) were already filled up for the month I’d need Babywoods to start.
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
The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) offers up to 12 unpaid weeks of leave and represented a promising first step when enacted in 1993. It all begs the question: If the family unit was ever so valuable to what it means to be an American, why did it take until the nineties to develop policies, albeit poor ones, that spoke to that so-called value? Americans may not have their paid maternity leave cake and eat it too, apparently.
Exchange student host—This isn't necessarily a job, but it is a way to bring some extra money into your household. Both international high school and college students come to America on exchange, and they stay with host families for as little as three months or as long as one year. You will need to have a fully furnished room for students and must be willing to welcome them into your family as if they were your own. A lot of SAHMs and their families enjoy the cultural experiences and enrichment that comes from hosting exchange students. You could also look at other hosting options, such as offering room and board to athletes or medical students in training.
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.

I admire you for putting yourself, Blake and your marriage first and then work. It’s not easy, especially in today’s world. You are an amazing woman to be able to balance all of it and run such a successful blog, body program and teaching of others through videos or in person. I’m sure it is not easy and I know you have to be organized to do it all. Please know you are an inspiration to many!! May God continue to bless you, your family and your business!!


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.
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 DO (often) spend blurry hours working between midnight and 2. I am tired. But I would be tired if I worked out of home too – because my babe thinks midnight is bedtime, but morning is 9:30. Since I’m at home I can usually stay in bed till 9:30. Yay! Sleep is probably the thing I have to compromise on the most… there just aren’t that many places to carve out quiet hours. Sleep while the baby sleeps? I do not.
This article is FANTABULOUS!!! Thank you sooo much! It is very overwhelming trying to sort through what may or may not be a scam on-line. This is the first time I have found information that seems promising. I am looking to be able to earn enough to support myself (I do not have kids) since health issues make it extremely difficult to work outside of my home. Keep up your great work!
Hi. I am a 35 year old woman with extreme social phobia and anxiety. I have been working forever as a retail manager. I have great customer service skills and can type fairly well. I have been on short term disability for almost a year and it is going to be ending. I have no idea what I’m going to do, or how I will be able to pay my bills. I need a way to support myself by working at home without any of the scams or gimmicks. If there is anyone out there that could help me or knows of something, PLEASE let me know.
In 2016, only 19 percent of men did housework — such as cleaning or doing laundry — compared to 49 percent of women, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. Additionally, 68 percent of women did food preparation and/or cleanup compared to 42 percent of men. This doesn’t even include the invisible mental load and emotional labor women are bogged down with daily:  keeping track of doctor appointments, hiring out to fix things in the home, playdate schedules, family vacation planning, etc. 
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!
25.  Remember your end-goal. When you’re 82, what will you look back and treasure?  Long for?  My bet is you’ll not think about how you wished you had written one more post, or expanded your company in that one way.  We’ll look back & either love the time we had with our families or wish we would have taken more.  It’s so easy to become swept up in life’s to do’s…live in the moment so you can look back and remember them all.
it is good to start work from home jobs but today people mentality is like that they want always quick money and mostly cases they dont have enough time to read this kinds of article just they spin valuable post like this and searching on other site and also will comment how to make money blah blah but reality is that you must have to develop skills and learn many new things like freelancing and many more to earn from net somehow this is great post to make some cash from your home.
I’m a mom to two little boys (1 and 3) and just found out baby #3 is on the way. I want to work from home, and have started selling Jamberry and Thirty One from home, but with my 30 hour/week job, it’s been hard to get a really great start (I have wonderful support, just having a hard time finding the time while balancing time with my boys). My current ‘real’ job involves social media posting, newsletter and flyer creation, emailing distribution lists, text updates, some event planning, etc. I LOVE my job, but don’t get along well with my boss, so I’m trying to find ways to recreate my $1200/mo contribution to our finances. Any suggestions?

Hi all: I'm ready to move on from my current role as a marketing strategist at a global media company. I'd like to stay with a publisher, rather than going to an agency or flipping over to the client side. I'm flexible on large vs. small, scrappy and entrepreneurial vs. longstanding titans, "fun" brand (like Well + Good, Refinery29, Buzzfeed) vs. more cerebral (Vox, The Atlantic). What I'm most focused on is a place that will respect me as an individual who is balancing a family, and also, offers solid maternity benefits (since we'll eventually try for #2). Mamas who are at other publishers and/or are in media: would you recommend your employer, based on how it stacks up against other media companies, how they treat their female/working mom employees, and the benefits that they offer? Thoughts welcome and appreciated!
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.

The reason I recommend teaching English online specifically, is because of the time difference. Peak teaching hours for teaching English to students in Asia are early mornings and evenings here in the US.  There are lots of platforms out there to teach online and they all have different requirements.

I also have the never-ending piles of laundry, the shelves that always need dusting, the dishes that just keep on getting dirty, and so on. Of course, these are things all families deal with, but when you work at home, those things tug at you all day. I’m part of the mess and contributing to it, while at the same time being driven crazy by it. Since work and kids take priority, the house gets put on the back burner — and then sometimes it gets forgotten and boils over and sets off the fire alarm. *sigh*
“Nobody can tell you who you are, and who you’re not, what you’re capable of and what you can’t possibly achieve. Only you can make your dreams come true. Only you can achieve what you’ve always wanted. STOP listening to the naysayers, the fear mongers and people who do not have your best interests at heart. START giving yourself permission to make this your best life ever.” — Natalie Sisson 
I read about blogging. I read A LOT about blogging. I read about how there are millions of blogs out there, and about how it can take years to grow a blog into a money making business. I read about how many blogs fail. I remembered that once, a few years ago, I’d had a brief interest in blogging (when I’d read about a woman who made Pinterest her full time job).
