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.
I am a nurse and have telecommuted from home for 7 years. I worked full time until a year ago, and my company requires I have child care on days I work. I had to have several years of nursing experience in a hospital before I could land this work (for me it was ICU and Labor and Delivery). I earned certification as a managed care nurse and it gave me more options. Part-time is usually not an option in insurance, but I volunteered to learn every line of business we have, and when they created out first float pool position, it meant I was the best candidate to pilot it. I now cover people when they are off, work 4-8 days a month, and still telecommute.
Get out a pen and paper and add these numbers up – the amount of time you spend getting primped for work each day plus the number of minutes — or, in some places, hours — you spend on your daily round-trip commute. Now multiply that number by five and you’ll see just how many hours you’ll gain if you can manage a side hustle that you can do in your pajamas. Over the weeks, months, and years, it could add up to thousands of hours!

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!
Other things that you need to be wary of are micro-jobs (i.e., small jobs that don't take much time to complete). Although these can be legitimate, a lot of companies will require you to reach certain earning thresholds before they pay you. And it can take a very long time to reach those thresholds. You also need to be clear about your form of payment because you may not realize that you are getting paid in gift cards or bitcoins. Here are some other tips for avoiding stay-at-home mom job scams:
From my experience (having worked and used daycare and also stayed at home) I also would argue this to my husband that daycare didn’t just come out of my salary. But there are also other “costs” to working and using daycare – we were busier, had less time to cook and probably would’ve hired a house cleaner down the road. Also, my sons had a few health issues that would have made daycare a difficult choice. Also we wanted control over what kind of education/discipline they received. So while it did come out of both of our salaries, we could make up the difference by me quitting. There is future income lost but to me it wasn’t necessarily worth the other hidden costs.
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:)
When I was pregnant 16 years ago with our first daughter I had a conversation with my Grandma a few weeks before she went to be with the Lord. I told her there is NO way I could stay home…it’s just not possible on one income. Well, it was possible and the Lord provided a way for me to transition from working at the physical therapy office I was employed with and had done some transcription for by putting me in contact with a local transcription company ran by a husband and wife. I typed for about the first 4 years of her life and then we found that we could indeed live on one income if we prioritized and ran our household differently. And avoided unnecessary items that today’s society in general think are priorities. It has been a wonderful 16 years with my two daughters. I began homeschooling them, too, eight years ago! It’s wonderful and now I don’t have to work at all. When they were small I would buy high end clothing for them and re-sell it to make it a near wash when the clothes were outgrown. Now we enjoy thrift storing almost exclusively and those clothes we don’t ant any longer or don’t fit we sell at consignment shops to make back some money. I regularly go through my house, too, and get rid of things that aren’t being used and sell them on facebook or my areas local selling page. It helps to make back a little!
I just started taking clients as a health coach. I set my own schedule and work as much as I decide to. I also share essential oils through dōTERRA and have made that a business too. Both are flexible and rewarding, but dōTERRA is easy to get started on, anyone can do it, all you are doing is sharing how great essential oils are, and making money while doing it. I’d be happy to share how I got started with both of these with anyone who is interested. – Ameryn Briggs at Eat Live Flourish and doTerra

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.
How much you earn is entirely up to you. If you can only spend limited time (maybe at start) you can earn $100 a day spending as little as an hour a day which is a nice supplement to your current income. Once you dedicate more time you can start earning a very nice income that can replace your current income. Dedicated members of our work-at-home jobs program can earn as much as $500 or more per day!
I could pretty much stop writing right here because this is the dominant reason for my decision. Mr. FW and I both had the benefit of being raised primarily at home by our parents and other family members and this is what we wanted for Babywoods as well. As inveterate insourcers of just about everything–from haircuts to plumbing–we had a hard time getting our heads around outsourcing our daughter’s care. That’s not to say there aren’t great options for daycare–indeed there are!–just as there are great options in the marketplace for all of the other things we do ourselves (I should know–I used to get lovely salon haircuts). Rather, it’s a question of wanting to do things ourselves and thus have control over outcomes and of course, costs.
4. Playdates: Now that the neighborhood mamas see you at home during the day, they’re going to knock on your door (or more likely text) and ask if your kids want to play. Built-in babysitter, right? Not so fast. The neighborhood moms aren’t inviting just your kiddo over — they want you to come too. Or maybe they’ve decided you should play catch-up and host the next few playdates. Consider how you want to deal with this type of situation. This might mean creating “playdate time” in your daily schedule, or prepping a brief, but firm, explanation as to why you can’t have extra kids running around your home.
