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!

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.
14.  Speaking of weekends, I know there’s a million birthday parties, church functions, friends to hang with, etc.  Pick one or two (at the most) outings & give your family time to recover from the week & for the week ahead.  I know this is a hard one, but stick to it.  You all need that downtime together–give it a whirl a couple of weekends and see how it feels.
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.
I have since contacted Global Typing Assignments one of the companies mentioned here by one Rebecca. Please, Alexa have you researched on this company which asks prospective assignment partakers to pay a registration fee? For instance, one of their registration amounts is US$100 to work? Please refer to this so that you may establish their general terms of service.
Have you ever heard of an actuary? In the past, it was used to describe a person who analyzes statistics in order to calculate risks and premiums for insurance companies. However, the job title has expanded to include many more industries that can benefit from data mining and economic forecasting. If you have a degree in mathematics, finance or statistics, look into getting your license through Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS) or Society of Actuaries (SOA).
Not all tasks are created equal. I love Suzi’s post on how to be more productive about this. Every time you’re faced with a task, ask yourself–is it urgent? Is it time sensitive? How much time will this take me? You then use this information to structure your work hours. Figure out what’s urgent, what’s important (these are not the same things!) and prioritize accordingly.
Helping people get approved for the home of their dreams is one of the biggest goals of the mortgage-loan officer. You’ll proactively identify, develop and maintain a quality network of business relationships that serve as a source of referrals for new mortgage-lending opportunities. To snag this remote job, you’ll need a BA/BS or equivalent experience in residential mortgage sales. Documented residential mortgage-loan volume in the past 12 months of $12 million is a minimum, along with being able to establish relationships with local referral networks.

Secret Shopper. Big companies need real consumers to walk into a store and see how their product is displayed on the shelf. A couple of apps — Rewardable and Gigwalk — enable moms to complete those tasks for a few dollars. Yes, really, set your expectations that it’s just a few dollars, but hey, maybe you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Or maybe you were going to Home Depot anyway, so snapping a picture of the Rustoleum display for $4 is no skin off your back. Expect to get paid via PayPal.
 My eBook The Bootstrap VA and my Facebook group is full of women pursuing VA (virtual assistant) work so they can be home with their kids. – Lisa Morosky at The Bootstrap VA (Lisa did some VA work for me last summer as I was getting ready to launch my Natural Birth Stories book. I love that she is empowering other moms to find jobs as VAs so they can stay at home too!)

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!


Babywoods has the cutest little smile! I quit working when my kids were little to stay home with them for five years until my youngest started kindergarten. I did side hustles from home for extra money. Since they started school, I’ve worked part time, then full time and now I’m back to part time. My oldest graduates high school next month and my youngest will be gone in two years. It is so true that the time passes so, so quickly. Even though there were times that were difficult when I stayed home, I’m so, so glad I did. My advice (even though you didn’t ask for it. 🙂 ) is to remember that it is every bit as important for you to get out and socialize as it is for Babywoods when you stay home. The public library was always a good place for us as they would have story hour and other activities for the kids and the moms could talk at the same time. I made some great friends that way. You could also see if there are any Meetup groups for moms and kids in your area.
Hmmmm I’m a work from home mom right now but there are a couple of these I’m going to try out! Why not make a few bucks while shopping and have the gas paid for? Or help someone out if I’m running around anyway? Plus we are a pet free home so the kids would love pet sitting once in a while. LOVE this list thanks mama!! =) hope some of these links work in Canada!!
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.
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.
If you are proficient in a second language, becoming a document translator is an option you should definitely consider. Not only would this job pay more because of your unique qualifications, it will also help you to maintain and improve your language skills. There are job opportunities in a wide variety of industries that require document translation into other languages, and this is a job that can be easily done at home.
I’m a former lawyer turned entrepreneur with Rodan+Fields (makers of ProActiv, the acne system). After welcoming my twin girls, I decided traveling, long hours, and dial-ins were no longer for me. I wanted to work from home on a part-time basis and Rodan+Fields has allowed me to do that. If you’re interested in earning a solid part-time income on your own terms, I’d love to talk to you!
Errand service provider—There are a lot of people who need assistance with running errands. They include seniors, people with limited mobility, corporate executives, and working parents. You could do anything from grabbing some groceries to picking up some dry cleaning. You would likely take your kids with you, and you may even be able to get some of your own errands completed at the same time. Most people charge by the errand, and you could earn the equivalent of $20.00 an hour or more. 

When you’re a mom, sometimes it feels like the grass is always greener somewhere else. If you work, you wish you were home with the kids; but when you’re home 24/7, it can feel like a big mistake. Working at home with the kids gives you a balance of both worlds — you can feel productive and earn some cash without stepping away from your parental role during the workweek.
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.
For many women, this sort of set-up would be a total dream. They get to spend time with their families while also advancing their careers and contributing financially to their families. As President Obama mentioned in his State Of The Union address in January, childcare costs are astronomical. Mothers often leave the workforce not by choice, but because it just doesn’t make economic sense to stay—especially if they have more than one child. Having one parent work from home—as a part-time employee or as an entrepreneur—helps families free up some of those funds.
You don’t just want any ol’ customer-service job. No, you want to be a smashing success. In this fast-paced position, you’ll be the point of contact to answer merchant questions. You should be able to determine the best plan and proactively identify growth opportunities that will help the merchant’s business skyrocket. The ideal candidate will have an entrepreneurial flair, two-plus years of customer-service experience, and an inquiring mind to find solutions for specific issues.
Like many in the online writing field have noted, things have changed quite a bit over the past couple years (the easy days of eHow articles that made thousands are long gone!) Sometimes we're tempted to give up, as if so much has changed that there is no way to make enough money working part-time to meet your needs. I can hardly believe that only 18 months ago I made over $5,000 during a month that I worked only a few hours a week. Those were the days!
At a glance, my life as a woman and work-at-home mother looks like a feminist’s wet dream. I’m college educated with a solid career history filled with escalating job moves and promotions. I’ve had a pretty successful career both as a staff writer and freelancer. I’ve saved thousands on daycare costs (especially when my kids were little). I don’t have to take time off when my kids are home sick. I take conference calls during soccer practices. I still contribute to social security by continuing to work (hope it’s still there when I need it!) There is a bank account with my name on it (not my husband’s). And yes, sometimes, I work in my pajamas.  
I am a full time college student, wife, and mommy to one active 5 yr old who I homeschool. My husband (who is a veteran Marine) is in college as well, so our lives are jam packed with homework. I’ve thought about selling products (It Works, Mary Kay, etc), but I can’t see myself selling and promoting a brand or products that I’m not 100% about. I have artistic abilities that I thought about putting to use to get income, but unfortunately we don’t even have the money to invest in creating stuff to sell.
I’m thinking back to your post about time optimism. When setting your expectations for work productivity with a young child at home, please bear in mind that your (adorable!) daughter is about to become a lot more challenging. She will sleep less, crave more attention, and require greater supervision. Every kid is different, but once our boys started crawling they had zero tolerance for being hemmed in. And once they could explore, the pace of their learning (and by extension their need for attention and interaction) took off exponentially. I just could not make sustained progress on my own projects while keeping them engaged and out of trouble. Our older son didn’t really start playing independently until about 2-1/2, so that’s a prolonged period of pretty intense parenting. I don’t think you’ll ever regret your decision to be at home with your daughter during her early years, just be forgiving to yourself in terms of what else you can accomplish while you’re a full-time parent. Good luck!
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.

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! 

I am a stay at home Mom with a part-time work from home job. For the past 3 years, I have had the blessing of being the secretary and office manager for a small Hydrovacing company. I have been able to do all the work from home until this past summer. It’s had it challenging times, but I’ve learned so much and have knowledge on how to start your own business because of it. Now, our youngest, age 3, goes with me 3 days a week for a few hours. We have 4 children- 16, 14, 7 and 3. I have also sold things on local sales sites for extra income. I have been at home since our oldest was born. We’ve made sacrifices, but didn’t see them as sacrifices. It was choices to support our decision to have me at home. We made that decision before we married almost 23 years ago. And, we are both thankful and blessed by it.

I am a 36 year old single mom of a 5 year old son I have custody of and 2 daughters who are 13 and 11 that I get most weekends. I live with and care for my disabled mother in a wheelchair, and have since 2011, since I care for her and my son it’s very hard to get a job outside the home. My income is very limited and I have got scammed a lot of times on the WAH jobs that charge you a fee and don’t really work. If anyone can give me info on REAL and legitimate home jobs that do not charge a fee please email me info and help me out. cindy0579@yahoo.com
2. Think about how much time you want to devote to a work-at-home job. There are part-time and full-time telecommuting jobs out there, offering anywhere from five to 40+ hours per week. As a mom, your schedule is probably based on your kids' and childcare schedules, so it's important to think about how a job can fit with that too. How often do you want to work, or how much time do you actually have to give to a job? What hours are you available to work? Weekdays? Weekends? There are definitely telecommuting jobs to fit all sorts of schedules (and flexible schedule jobs too!), but if you know what you want/need ahead of time, it makes your search much easier and sets you up for long-term success.
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!
These last 2 years have brought me some incredible mountaintop moments, but they would be nothing without my family.  After writing about parenting a couple of weeks ago, I was inspired to give some tips for working-at-home moms.  There’s a lot of parenting advice out there, but not very much for those of us who work from home–and while I don’t pretend to have it all figured out, I know it will help for us all to bounce ideas off of each other.

Great post! For me, I work in a virtual environment. I design clothing on Photoshop, then I upload them to virtual games and sell them to people in the games for money. I usually work 2 to 5 hrs a week and make $300 to $500 a month. It’s just a bit of extra spending money as we have survived for years on one income but it’s nice to have the little extra coming in.
Since you are reading this article, that means you have a skill that many people around the world are seeking – knowing the English language. Learning to read, write, and speak English has become an invaluable asset in industries based in the U.S. or that are global. Specialty websites and local resources can connect you with people looking for an English teacher to learn from and converse with.
Thanks for this post! I was curious how it all played out. We struggled with what to do as we live incredibly rural and day care was not an option (nor was a full/part time nanny or babysitter)- heck I commute 90 miles one way for work and to put the little guy in daycare would have been another 20 miles one way. My husband works for the family ranch and I love my job with the park service. As soon as we found out I was pregnant, we started brainstorming options and resources. We crunched the numbers and realized we could make it on my husband’s salary (quitting his job wasn’t really an option). But I really love my work and the intellectual stimulation it gives me, so wasn’t keen on giving up that all together. We got creative and decided to pitch a solution that ended up, to our surprise and delight, being accepted by both employers. Now I go to the office 2 days a week, and work from home 1/2 a day with additional hours throughout the week as I can manage; I usually end up with about 20-25 hours/week. On my office days and telework mornings, DH is primary care giver and only participates in work that he can take the little guy along with. This arrangement has really worked well for us and has given us the added benefit of DH have “father-son” days that have really helped our transition from a couple to a family. It’s not without it’s challenges. I am a year out from finishing a graduate degree and so am also sacrificing sleep to finish schoolwork on evenings and weekends. I am getting a new supervisor at work that may not be as receptive to either a part time or teleworking employee (both uncommon at my unit) and could require me to return to full time on-site work or give my notice. We’ve also had some push-back from my husband’s family about his availability to do various activities. We try to maintain open communication and conversation about what’s working and what isn’t with each other and with our respective employers. So far (little guy is 8 months), so good but we continue to plan and strategize for the future, while enjoying the time we both have with our little guy. Everyday brings new joys and challenges and we continue to take them one at a time.
Hello Alexa, I have read your list and am very interested. I am a single mother of two little ones, and I would like to start up an online job from home, until I can get further on my career path offline. I have no idea where to begin and would appreciate so ideal tips on what and where to get started to make a decent living for my kids as well as myself, I would greatly appreciate it thank you for your time.
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!

I was in your shoes….about 22 years ago. I never planned on being a SAHM. After my daughter was born I found out how hard it was to hand her over to a caregiver every day and how much I missed her during the day. My workday got shorter and shorter – going in later and leaving earlier so I could be with my baby. This was back in 1994 when it was uncool for a college grad to decide to be a SAHM. I got a lot of flack from people because I was “wasting my college degree.” It wasn’t a choice it was calling. And it was the hardest job anyone will ever do.
Hey y’all! I’m an independent consultant with Rodan and Fields, a premium skincare line that was started by the same doctors that created ProActive. I’m a stay at home mom and decided to join this business because everything is done online and they have a great business model! I devote a few hours a week to posting on social media, following up with potential clients and product training. If you are interested in earning $250, $500, or even more than $1000 a month I would love to share information about this business with you!
We make and sell natural products, including magnesium lotion, herbal salves, lotion bars, herbal bath salts and we’ll soon be adding spice mixes and teas!

Plus, it helps me (and my kids) fall asleep when we’re having a restless night. It rocks!)
It's important to line up your day carefully, with set "office" hours. How many hours do you hope to work that day? When will you return calls? What can you accomplish while your son or daughter is coloring in the next room? You'll get more done if you work smarter, not harder, says Christine Durst, a mom of two in Woodstock, Connecticut, and cofounder of ratracerebellion.com, a site that helps people find work-at-home jobs. That said, one of the best benefits of working at home is flexibility, especially if you are your own boss. If your son or daughter is fussing during your office hours and it's a beautiful day, it's okay to push assignments aside and go to the park. You can catch up on work later when your cutie has settled down.
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!
Yes, it just depends what you’re looking to get into. For the past year and a half I’ve worked about 20 hours a week writing for blogs and have pulled in anywhere from $2,000 – $3,000 per month. Now I’m doing more virtual assistant work and in the next few months should bring in quite a bit more money. (I’ll also be working 40 hours per week though)

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.
Every WAHM has a similar horror story: She's on an important call, her toddler wants to watch Elmo or is suddenly starving, and her boss is left listening to a whining child and Mom's apologies instead of her bright ideas. Their advice? Hit the mute button during conference calls to avoid any unexpected yells of "Mommmeee!"in the background. If your child is fussing while you're on the phone, end the call and reschedule if you can. That said, you can usually count on a more compassionate response from another parent. When she first went back to work, O'Donnell would hide that she worked from home from her clients. Now she's up-front with them, explaining that her kids might interrupt. She's found that, in general, people are understanding.

Thank you for this post. I’m a full time working mama, with a son and daughter under the age of 2. I’ve always made a good living and been hard working…but now with my little ones I’m finding my priorities have shifted quite a lot. I’m considering leaving my job for something part-time with my husband’s family business, where I’ll get to work from home. This is a very hard decision for me to make. Reading your hints is helping me realize I should be able to balance the work with the family time I’ll have while at home. Thank you again. Love your blog.
First, let me say that I believe all moms are working moms, whether they’re working in the home, out of the home or a little bit of both, as is my current situation. I'm fortunate to be able to stay at home and work. But I'd be lying if I said there weren't times I questioned what I was doing, why I was doing it and if it was really for me. Half a decade and another child later, I still do. This is the hardest gig I've ever had—and that's saying something, because I've had some tortuous jobs!
5. Be aware of scams. Telecommuting is a job niche that is loaded with scams, but you can protect yourself by learning the warning signs of scam jobs. Job listings that promise easy money for easy work, don’t have the hiring company’s name identified,  use public email domains as the “respond to” address (such as @hotmail.com, @gmail.com, or the anonymous @craigslist.com emails), or use all capitalized letters or lots of !!! and $$$ punctuation, are all red flags that should warrant more research on the company. Also, be careful of the keywords you use to search. "Work at home" is a keyword that the FBI has identified as a common scam and risky keyword*, so instead, try safer words like "remote work," "telecommute," and "telecommuting." Common work-from-home scams include payment processing, repackaging products, survey taking, stuffing envelopes, and building crafts. If it sounds too good to be true, it is.

I AM A QUALIFIED PRIMARY TEACHER AND NEEDED SOMETHING TO TAKE MY HOURS OF WORK DOWN AS I FIND TERM TIME HOURS AND DEMANDS QUITE CHALLENGING. I LOOKED AT SEVERAL DIRECT SELLING OPPORTUNITIES AND FOUND ONE THAT IS ABSOLUTELY PERFECT. I EARN AS MUCH AS I CHOOSE TO PUT IN THE WORK FOR, AND THERE IS A FANTASTIC SUPPORT NETWORK. IT WAS SOMETHING I THOUGHT I WOULD NEVER DO AND I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT.
For the company name CASH FLOW, LEGIT FLEX JOBS and probably more that is showing the same introductions but different speaker and company’s name. Is a scam site I can speak because I have join in March 9 ,2018 and still no paycheck that was for being an independent contractor for these company as a data entry for unclaimed funds for every worksheet comes with a $5.00 fee. In the video presentation said that 3 to 6 days we will receive a payment on our worksheet . Never did even when they notified me that they got it and are working on it. Now it is March 30.2018 nothing in the mail from LEGIT FLEX JOBS , CASH FLOW. The 50 so called LEGIT JOBS by working from home is WRONG,FALSE,LIED and a SCAM.
How many promotional emails do you find in your inbox every morning? Probably a ton -- because a ton of companies use them. If you’ve worked in advertising, marketing, publishing or as a copywriter, chances are you can master the skills to work as an email marketer from home. The very nature of the work depends entirely on the internet, so completing the job remotely makes perfect sense.
Financially – at first we realized that we spent so much, that we needed the two salaries, So we spent less and actually paid off the house during that time. I stopped counting after I “threw away” a million dollars gross of salary and 401K contributions. We survived my husband being laid off from his job of 23 years. We actually took advantage of the time taking the kids out of school and traveling in the camper for a month. When I did return to work, it was at a lesser level and 20K less than I would have made had I stayed in.
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.
3. Online surveys—You can make some cash taking online surveys, and some people swear by it as easy work. But it can be very low pay when you consider the amount of time that you have to put into it. Some survey takers report making less than a dollar per hour. Before you commit to anything, make sure you read the company's privacy statements and disclaimers and conduct online research about them. Be especially cautious if you cannot find any information or reviews about them. It means that they may be an unscrupulous company that changes names often. You also want to make sure that you never pay any money in order to get started.
Hey Kelly! The one year of teaching experience can be any kind of teaching experience (not just in a traditional school setting). They just want to make sure you’ve worked with children before. Any daycare experience, teaching Sunday school, and yes- as a sign language interpreter (how cool is that?!).

While skipping office drama (and drinks with co-workers) seems like a trip to Disneyland, one must not forget that the office can be an idea oasis. Your co-workers got their jobs for a reason. Many of them have great ideas and diverse perspectives. Without little side chats in the hallways or water cooler talks, it’s possible that moms who work solely at home miss out on key conversations that could spark their creativity.

I love this post! I meant to comment on your Facebook post about this and in true new mom fashion, I forgot to come back and do it. So here’s my little story…it has provided WAY more than I initially thought and has continued to provide. I’m a SAHM to a toddler and newborn. I used to teach and my husband teaches as well. After cutting expenses in our own budget, the next best way for us to save more money was to make money. I decided to open an Etsy shop (Joyful Art Designs) and sell printable signs. I spent 6 months preparing to open and a lot of hours the first several months to make it successful. The hard work has paid off and I’ve now replaced my teaching income if I had our two kids in day care. Right now I put in about 1-3 hours a day if I can since we have a newborn. I love blogging, but it’s a hobby, whereas this is a business. Thanks for letting us share our businesses…this is great for those searching to make money.
And that’s it! With three kids it’s important to divide and conquer and be flexible with our schedules. My Mondays and Tuesdays are usually reserved for my first daughter’s speech therapy, my Wednesdays and Thursdays are reserved for second daughter’s extracurricular activities and Fridays are usually free and I try not to schedule anything on this day except my first daughter’s ABA therapy.
I’ve tried everything to be able to work from home. Blogging, crowd sourcing, essential oils, digital assistant. The thing that I’ve been successful at is a Beachbody coach. I run challenge groups and help teach that the key to a healthy life means eating healthy and working out. I get to be a motivator and support for people and I love it! – Markell Corpus at Journey to a New You

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.
Now it’s time to get to work! If you’re starting your own business you’ll need to put together your web site and/or business cards, start marketing yourself, and find clients. If you’re looking to get hired by someone else, it’s time to start pounding the (virtual) pavement. You can work one of two ways: Search for companies who are currently hiring, or search for companies that you’d like to work for and then send resumes and work samples or portfolios to them.
I am a single mom of 3 beautiful girls. My oldest has decided to move out on her own, but my other two are still at home. I work part time, go to school part time, and supplement my income by selling candles for a company called Jewelry in Candles. I have only been doing this for a few months and not many people have heard of this company where I live so it has been slow going, but it is going. I used to work 12 plus hours a day, 6 days a week and did it for years. I decided it was time to slow down a little bit so I can be around for those sporting activities.

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.
Awesome Hannah! I really felt like 6 months was the magic number with both of mine too, where we started getting back into a routine. I was just thinking about this today, and I really feel like there’s room for any blogger who is willing to be brave and share their unique perspective and story. You’re the only you! So don’t be intimidated by how many others there are. If you do decide to start one, feel free to email me! I’d love to answer any questions you might have. Have you thought about doing something with your graphic design on Fiverr? Or perhaps contact bloggers, as they often need help making nice Pinnable images.
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!!
First off i wanted to say thank you …even more thank you to the single mom who brought great oppurtunity in my pathway. A little about my self i am 28 years old single parent.

I work and work and when things get super tight i get online and look for even more ways i can make money…and we all know why as mothers and as single dads we do this …for OUR LILONES…we will try anything because trying is better then the ultimate failure of not doing anything and our children suffering.

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.
