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!

This is quite new in the world of weddings but is a fantastic idea for anyone who wants to capture their special night. Many brides are now hiring painters to attend the event and paint a scene from the wedding in the painter’s unique style. If you are artistic and enjoy painting, you can expect to make around $4K from each painting. While you do have to attend the wedding to do a live painting, weddings are usually on weekends making this desirable to stay at home moms. You of course pick and choose which dates and weddings you book. Expect to be busier during the spring and summer as that is when weddings happen.
I was surprised when you suggested that your baby would receive MORE at daycare…the notion seems very confusing that somehow putting your child in a daycare away from her mother is the ideal in any respect. Trust me…all first time moms worry that they aren’t enough of whatever they need to be for their baby… but babies do not need constant stimulation, or affection, or entertainment. They will thrive without mommy and me music class, signing time and baby art. Since the beginning of time until about 35 years ago when marketers discovered that parents would spend big money on giving their children a head start, babies were observers, they were in the background. They played with sticks, rocks, grass, if they were lucky a wooden spoon and siblings. They spent a lot of time in cradles and even hung off door frames in Victorian times over a chamber pot. Einstein, Beethoven, Freud, Galileo, Jobs, and I were all raised without dazzling pinterest-ized parents and institutionalized early years (I had to put myself in that list because…well it is the only time it would happen;) and I’d say it worked out! Seriously though the baby industry tells us we aren’t enough. It tells me that my toddler playing at my feet with two Tupperware containers needs MORE …all the time more… but after several children I know the truth is they need us. I am blessed to live in a country that provides paid leave for one year for mothers and/or fathers to be home. There is at least a little more of an acknowledgement here that parents matter most. I hope you know how lucky you are to be one of the few American women who gets to be home. It isn’t easy..no not at all, but in 30 years (or ten or five or next week) you won’t regret it! Don’t let the daycare up the street market you away from your child if you don’t have to or want to:)
It’s always a good idea to play to your strengths no matter what kind of job you’re looking for, but especially so when looking for a work from home job. Why? Because when you’re working from home and raising a family, you can get burned out pretty easily. If you’re doing something you don’t mind or actually enjoy, you’ll be more likely to keep going, even when the going gets tough.

That is wonderful for you and your family. Please make sure you have enough disability insurance on YOU if something happens. We received poor professional advice when we decided for me to stay home and didn’t have enough for me. We were able to make it work (with a lot of scrambling, stress and a small inheritance) but six figures later we are very grateful to be in decent shape. I was in my 30’s with a toddler and preschooler. You are more likely to be disabled than die so life insurance is only part of what you need.
This is such a great discussion thread. Everyone’s circumstances are different. There is no one way fits all and I think finding a creative solution is key. If I had been working a high-paying job that required a good amount of time and would lead to career advancement I would have been more inclined to put my first in daycare. I wasn’t. My job was very fulfilling, but I felt that I wanted to stay home more. I did some freelance work for my old employer while she was a baby and have stayed in touch and they have made it clear they would love me back at some point. Now I have three kids three and under (surprise! Twins!) and I’m so glad that we don’t have to pay for daycare for all three of them. My husband is also working a position now that allows him to work from home when he wants to. He can’t be much help to me, but it has allowed him to see how busy and stressful my days can be. Now he can watch out for our older daughter while I run an errand with the twins. It’s been a great set up for us. 

Great Post! I like the tip on creating a direct sales business. I stated my online fitness business in April 2016 and have averaged $500 a month. The pace has been increasing and mine and my husbands goal is to quit our jobs in Aug. of 2017 to take this business full time. It is possible to make money online you just have to believe in yourself! You can do it!
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!
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.
I am happy for you! I’ve been a WAHM for almost a year now. What pushed me into it was having two very scary incidents of bleeding during my first trimester and bed rest for several weeks. I decided to quit a very stressful marketing job (we had shifting hours) for the baby’s sake. Now, she’s a happy 4-month-old and I’m exclusively nursing her, and toying with the idea of homeschooling when she’s older.
If you have a degree and training in technical support, repair, installation, networking, software debugging, and other IT-related disciplines, you are in a great position to work remotely and get compensated well. Many companies rely on remote technician support via the telephone or online, and this is one of the highest paying work from home jobs out there.
I have designed a template to help parents teach their children about God, to understand different activities that happen within the church i.e. baptism, to help them learn basic Bible verses, and a list of verses which can be utilized for different occurrences in life. I do not know how to market my “tool box” and I am interested on how I can get this item out and available to others. I also am interested in providing a service of giving advice to others. However, I am not sure how to even set up a platform for that. I am a SAHM with seven children ranging from one month to 20 years old; with the last three being age three and under. I am looking for advice and direction. We are currently surviving on my husband’s income, but I want to do more than survive I want to thrive.
Meanwhile, life can throw you some curveballls. Being reliant on one income can put your family in a vulnerable spot if the breadwinner gets laid off, there’s a divorce or disability, their field contracts, or they find themselves in a job situation that’s unworkable due to boss, stress, etc. Consider that only one of you is contributing to social security and retirement accounts. It’s true, daycare is expensive, but so is life afterwards, even if you live frugally–braces, college, class trips, health insurance, etc. I’ve managed to avoid these curveballls but in a way I feel I was just luckier than some of my friends.

I was surprised that Nerium International was not on your list. The company is less than 4 years old and has broken so many records! Our CEO, Jeff Olson, gets invited year after year to speak to and teach other CEOs at their annual conferences. He is nicknamed “The Millionaire Maker”, and has brought many many companies from the bottom to the top. Nerium did $100 Million their first year with one product, in one country. And it doubles every year after that! It is also the youngest company to reach the top 40 list of the Direct Selling Association! This company is climbing fast to the top, and I’m proud to be involved in it.


Next, think about how, when, and where you can get some work done. If you have an infant who sleeps on and off throughout the day, you’ll need to find something that doesn’t require a commitment of large blocks of time. If you have young children who come home from school at two o’clock in the afternoon, you’ll need a job that you can work on primarily in the morning. And if your work is going to require you to be on the phone, you’ll need to find chunks of time when you won’t be interrupted by your little ones.

Pro tip for baby stimulation: See if your local library has a summer reading program for babies. No, really! We have a great one in Denver inspired by the ALA’s Every Child Ready to Read program. The “reading” activities for babies are actually Read, Write, Talk, Sing, Play, and the specifics for last summer were things like “finger paint with pudding” or “make up a song with your child’s name in it.” But don’t worry–even babies need their down time :-). Totally cool for her to roll around on the floor a little while you work.
Hi, I am a mother of four, as well as a security/safety officer and a small daycare provider.. I have a background in education (worked for local school for about 10yrs) as well as safety (security officer for about 6yrs and took on safety position as an additive about a year and a half ago.). I would really like to be at home with my kids more and with that being said I am interested in data entry or something similar to that…
There are so many decisions to be made when a new little family member enters your world. Should you buy a bigger house? Or turn the home office into a nursery? Should you start a college fund for the child, like, yesterday? Should kids eat gluten? Clearly, being a parent is extremely overwhelming. Then there is this other decision many working moms face: do you continue to work when you have kids? Some moms believe that the answer is easy—whether they decide to work, or not. But life is really never the same again once you have a child, and while there is no right or wrong choice when it comes to continuing your career or being a stay at home mom, both will come with surprises. When you’ve been used to working five (or seven) days a week for years on end, suddenly not doing that spurs a lot of other unexpected changes. Here are things to consider before becoming a stay at home mom.

9.  Since you do have control of your schedule, be involved in your child’s educational experience.  Notice I didn’t simply say “education.”  For some of us, this might mean homeschooling.  For others, it means something entirely different.  If your kids are in traditional school, get involved with their whole experience at school.  Ask them questions about their day, their favorite parts, the parts that stunk.  What did they learn–what did they looove to learn about?  How are their friends, what’s going on with them? It’s not about being nosy or controlling, it’s about quiet guidance and purposeful moments.
This is a great list. When people are searching from jobs that will allow them to work from home, they often have not clue what to search for on jobs sites other than “work at home.” This is an excellent list of search terms, as well as to give ideas for areas in which to seek further training if needed so that working from home can be a possibility.

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!

What a great analysis and personal story of choosing to work at home and parent. I chose to stay at my job full time after a 4 month maternity leave as I really did like my job and I made enough to make day care feasible. However, I continued my career only because we found a wonderful small family day care that treated my son as their own son. He and I have had several conversations about it as he has gotten older (he’s now a college freshman) and he said that it was okay and that he loved them and that they loved him, but that he always missed me every day. But that the way he thought of it was that it was his job to go to day care and later to school just like it was his dad an my job to go to work, if that makes sense. He has always been a profound thinker who may major or minor in Philosophy at college. And both my husband and I have made sure we had flexible schedules so that one or both of us could attend all school events, scouting, etc. so it worked out, but we had to really think it through to get it to work. I turned down assignments that would have led to faster advancement, but they involved too much travel or really long work hours. I am adding this for all those folks who for what ever reason are working and have kids in daycare. But, I agree with many posters that you have to follow your heart and find the solution that works best for you and your family. Baybywoods is just adorable and such smiles–her joy is contagious!
As I mentioned, now that I’m down to 2 hours of work time during the day, I’ve instituted a new system of early work hours. 3 days a week I wake up at 4:45, roll out of bed and head to Starbucks for a 2 hour work session. So far, so good. Although I don’t enjoy getting out of bed that early, it feels amazing to start the day on top of my inbox and ahead of the game rather than watching work pile up until nap time. My stress levels are down, my productivity is up and my after-dinner hours are now open to connect with my husband. You may not feel you need to leave the house but I do. It keeps me focused and since my daughter is still breastfeeding I can’t be in the house if she wakes up and expect to continue working.
This is quite a suggestive list. I am 32, turning 33 in Oct, and have 15 years in the Child Care field at a preschool, but would someday like to start working from home. As far as skills outside of Child Care as far as client relations & such, my other skills are crafting/bead making, professional organizing, and can type about maybe 50-60 wpm. Also was thinking of being an elderly companion, running errands, etc. Therefore I am wondering what I can really do from home with all this. I was thinking of creating some cards on vistaprint and just freelance as a Mother’s or Family Helper for those who have a rough time getting things done around the home, & who just don’t have the time of day whether it’s kids, relationships, family, etc. Would that make enough money providing I get a decent amount of clients? I am from south Florida just near Fort Lauderdale, so I’m just not sure. I know I don’t want to do child care forever, just cause it can be stressful at times. What do ya think? 🙂

I recently became a SAHM for my 10 month old daughter. Its been great to stay home with her but we had to cut back on a lot of expenses and I really missed being able to go out for an ice cream or getting a coffee. My friend works for a research company and asked me to participate in one of her studies by filling out an online form about my daughter and husband. It was pretty easy and gave me a little mad money to take my daughter and husband out for a little treat. I know that they are still looking for participants so thought I would share in case anyone is in a similar situation as me. If anyone is interested you can use this link http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/1918197/V3-Rater-Interest-Survey to fill out their interest survey to receive more information about the study.
I am a SAHM and hold a job for a fortune 100 healthcare company. There are lots of opportunities to work companies who offer telecommuting. I only have to go on-site about 3-4 Times a year for a 1 hour meeting. I have had my job 16-1/2 years.It has been wonderful to keep my job but allowing me to do everything for my 5 kids aging 15 to 21 months old.
I love all the ideas here. I have been a stay at home mom for the past 9 years Until recently I haven’t had a need to work from home. I would really love to do something that is flexible and strictly online due to having a critically ill child at home. My passion is research for financial assistance for families in need. I would love to be able to find a way to turn this into a profitable stay at home business but I am completely lost in how to get started and if there is even a need for it. Until then I would be interested in data entry or research virtual assistant. If anyone has an idea where to start or if there is something I can do until I can start I would be interested in talking with you. Thank you
I did work for a while, and then I got married, but when our first baby came along, we couldn’t really afford for me not to work at all. So I started a small editing business from home, which allowed me to bring in a little cash and keep up my professional skills. After a while, I wanted more regular work, so I started doing online tutoring. I set my hours around my husband’s schedule, and it all worked well.

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?
Hosting exchange students- It’s not really considered income, but rather reimbursement for expenses, but caring for a teenager from another country has been a really rewarding experience for our whole family, and my 3-yr-old son proudly talks about his 2 Japanese “sisters”. I think this opportunity must only be taken on with genuine interest and care for the students, but the rate we are reimbursed definitely provides extra income for our family which allows me to stay at home and be a “Mom” to one more.
Work-from-home jobs come in all varieties, and not all of them are legit. So my first tip for work-from-home parents is: Beware of scams! If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Be wary of any job that requires you to part with cash up-front, as well as anything that "promises" or "guarantees" overnight riches yet doesn't have a set pay rate. If you're considering a position but suspect it might be a scam, check with the Better Business Bureau or the Trade Commission. 

Along with the six most common scams detailed above, there are other job opportunities that are not necessarily scams, but they also may not be as good as they appear. These companies often target stay-at-home moms and play on their desire to earn money from home, but they often do not deliver on what they promise. These are three common types of companies that you should be realistic about when exploring what they can actually offer you:


Well, if that’s the case, you’re in luck because there are hundreds of companies from which to choose. I’m sure you’ve heard of the many companies marketing their products through social media. Teeth whitener, body wraps, lipstick, skin regimens, leggings, fitness shakes, candles, makeup, jewelry, more fitness shakes, etc. Hey — some people have great sales talent. If there’s a product out there you absolutely love, you might do well!
Wow this is a well-done list! And I see all the time you put into it has paid off considering it has been shared over 50,000 times! Congrats to you! I personally like the virtual assistant idea. I have not done it, but I love the idea of it and I think it can be a great way for decent income if you find the right company. Just takes some time and effort to apply to some places if you want to make significant income. I was doing research on VA jobs and it looked like there are multiple companies available to get with. It kind of looked like the higher paying companies wanted a bit of experience though. Anyway, great article thanks!

Their training is done online and is self-paced. You could finish the program in 4 months but 6 months is probably more realistic. They do however give you up to a year to get it all done. Their program is approved by the American Health Information Management Association and the American Academy of Professional Coders. They work with companies such as CIOX Health, Lexicode, OS2-HCS, TrustHCS, Inovalon, Mckesson that hire their grads to work from home right out of the program.
10.  Set a date night.  Every week.  Every other at the least.  (P.S. This totally applies to all married folk.)  Between being a mom, chauffeur, housekeeper, diaper changer, meal planner, etc.  and running your own business (all by your lonesome), there is little time for your love life.  Make the time–no excuses.  Your husband will worship you for it–and you’ll be so thankful he does.  There’s really nothing better on this earth than to find your partner, the one who finishes your sentences.  Treasure that relationship.
3. At-home assembly—You pay for starter kits for products—such as toys—and are told that once you assemble them at home, you can resell the assembled products back to the company. Once you have them assembled and try to sell them back, you will be told that the assembly does not meet the company's guidelines, no matter how perfectly the products were assembled.
The FlexJobs database lists thousands of work-at-home jobs that offer stay-at-home moms the ability to work comfortably from a home office. And according to the FlexJobs survey of working parents in 2017, the ability to work flexibly is one of the top contributors to a healthy work-life balance. Below we’ve got 10 great work-at-home jobs for stay-at-home moms, along with their median annual salary from PayScale.
I think we should focus on making it easier for parents to return to the workforce after a hiatus. I’m pretty sure I haven’t gotten dumber or less skilled in my years off ????, but we do still have that perception of stay at home moms being unskilled! Addressing discriminatory hiring practices as part of the wage gap would help increase families’ abilities to make a choice that works for them.

When searching for legitimate work from home jobs, make sure to ask questions. If the job posting is limited with information, contact the poster and gather as much information before going any further. Find out how much the job paying: Is it Hourly or commission based? Also ask how often you get paid, and what equipment is required to do the job. With work from home jobs, the main communication is done online, so make sure you are perfectly clear of what is expected and have knowledge of red flags to avoid.
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.

Teachers! Guess what my favorite side job is? Yes, this one is actually my part time job and I love doing it! I teach English to students in Beijing. Don’t let that last statement intimidate you; it’s mostly “P says Puh! Puh, Puh, Pig!” instruction to begin with. To start, you need a bachelor’s degree in any field, some experience with children, and a bubbly personality. Make anywhere from $14-$22 per hour, and set your own hours.

Millennials already save for financial freedom and demand more flexibility at work, and they catch flak for “whining,” a.k.a. speaking up for a healthy work-life balance. Compared to other countries — even some third-world countries — the United States has poor family policies. It's one of only three countries in the world to not mandate paid maternity leave by law, next to Oman and Papua New Guinea. Are we a world power or aren’t we?
Fast forward to 2003 – I was working part time while my 6 and 8 year olds were in school. Then lost my job and went through a divorce at the same time. That life crisis pushed me into a new space where I created a home business that worked for me but again, most people around me didn’t understand. I was able to be there for my kids, support myself, and build a business that takes care of me today, and I also mentor other SAHMs so that they can stay home with their kids and run a business on the side. Win-win.

The truth is that there are legitimate work-from-home employers seeking applicants, but they are often drowned out by the loud and proud direct sales consultants offering a similar pitch. I have nothing against direct sales; in fact, I dabbled in them a few years ago. I respect the hustle! But it’s important to remember that direct sales isn’t for everyone, just like teaching isn’t for everyone, being a doctor isn’t for everyone, and being a mom isn’t for everyone.

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).

That is wonderful for you and your family. Please make sure you have enough disability insurance on YOU if something happens. We received poor professional advice when we decided for me to stay home and didn’t have enough for me. We were able to make it work (with a lot of scrambling, stress and a small inheritance) but six figures later we are very grateful to be in decent shape. I was in my 30’s with a toddler and preschooler. You are more likely to be disabled than die so life insurance is only part of what you need.
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.
Seamstress or fashion designer—Do you take pride in your sewing skills? If so, then you should consider advertising and charging for your services. Many people struggle to sew on a button let alone hem a pair of pants or fix a ripped piece of clothing, so they turn to people like you to help them out. And if your sewing abilities extend into areas related to fashion design, then you could start creating your own unique pieces and sell them online.
I am so relieved to here someone else confirm that some things are just a waste of time. I do not spend any time on Facebook and choose to focus my promotion between Pinterest and Twitter because those platforms have higher ROI for me anyway. I get frustrated every time someone tells me I have to be in facebook groups to make it as a blogger. P.S. I really enjoyed watching your pinning tactics. Thanks for sharing!
“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 am a stay at home, homeschooling mom of a 9yo and a 7yo. I love The Pampered Chef home and kitchen products and I love cooking healthy, organic, allergy friendly meals for people. So I host FREE monthly cooking classes for adults and children. I show people how to make yummy Paleo and GAPS Diet friendly recipes. Like any other business, if you put hard work into it, you will be successful. My goal is to make enough money to pay for the organic ingredients that I use at my free cooking shows. I joke with my clients that I get paid in free Pampered Chef products that I earn from each show or class I host :). The Pampered Chef is really an amazing company to work with and am blessed to have such an amazing support team.

6. Typing or data entry—You are often required to provide a lot of personal information up front, along with a payment for a starter package. What you get is an affiliate advertising package that requires you to spend time and money creating online ads. Then you will supposedly receive a commission every time someone clicks on your ads and signs up or makes a purchase. Note that there are real typing jobs for stay-at-home moms, but they would typically require interviews and typing-skills testing.
