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].
Now, don't get me wrong — there is nothing wrong with not joining Facebook if you absolutely are against it. You can certainly find work at home jobs without it by following blogs like this one, but Miranda made a great point that Facebook is an excellent resource that shouldn't be ignored unless you're just completely adamant that you want no part of Facebook.
I am a distributor with It Works. Started my journey in April to supplement my WAHM income as a staff recruiter for occupational, physical and speech therapist. I have a soon to be 2 year old and my husband and I realized it actually cost us more for me to work outside the home, and I was fortunate enough to be able to work out a situation with my employer to allow me to do my job from home. I have a sitter that helps from time to time to allow me time to meet deadlines, meetings, jobfairs. I schedule wrap appointments and parties when my husband is home. This also also allows me to have a positive work life balance for myself and gives our child a chance to have a mom at home but to still be able to have someone to give her undivided attention when I have work priorities. So far it is a win win for us.
But there is one scenario that these numbers cannot possibly reflect — the number of moms who have successfully launched part-time businesses or side hustles out of their homes. Although there is no hard data on those numbers, more than 8.6 million U.S. businesses are owned by women. Undoubtedly, many of those businesses are run by mothers who manage their businesses’ affairs while also keeping an eye on the kids.

Another tactic to adopt when you're in business mode? Dress the part. Aimee Samuelson, a Portland, Oregon, mom of two, who runs a marketing business out of a converted garage, dresses as if she's going into an office when she's on the job. She knows if she works in her pj's she won't concentrate as well and might get distracted by household tasks between conference calls. Not everyone needs a suit on to feel more professional -- sometimes taking a shower and putting on makeup and a clean outfit will do the trick.
I am a stay at home mom and I love this list. Mommas need to encourage each other. It’s a tough world we live in! I run my own blog over at iamcapturingthemoment.com and make income off of that. Not a lot, but a little. Im also a Pampered Chef consultant (if you don’t know what that is, feel free to contact me!), and I hand see children blankets and other fun items with my mom in our business called Bumblebees and Butterflies. I earn enough to help with bills and to buy extra goodies for my two daughters. :)
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.
Teachers and former teachers can take that experience and turn it into a tutoring business, either online or in person. You can try an online tutoring job and teach students via the Internet or work online at test scoring jobs. If you want to tutor in your own home or offer music lessons, pay special attention to these tips for setting up a successful tutoring environment.
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!
On the employee side, when surveyed, two-thirds of Americans say that they would like to work from home. And that desire has turned into action; the number of regular employees who work from home grew by 103 percent from 2005 to 2016. There are now 3.7 million American employees working from home.1 That same focus on working from home is also seen with those who are self-employed. In 2013, Forbes reported that over half of the small businesses in the country were home-based.2
When my first son was born, I was able to split my days, working three days in the office and two days at home. When I got pregnant with my second, my family and I relocated across the country–and Edgenuity let me stay on full-time remote. It’s been an awesome opportunity and really helped with the transition for us. It’s tough working full-time–sometimes tougher when you’re totally remote–and having a toddler, but totally worth it. Cutting out all the costs and frustrations of a daily commute [which was 3 hours a day minimum living in NYC] and gaining back that time with my family has been priceless.
If you are worried about the financial implications of trying to find jobs from home for moms, then consider the success of some moms who previously earned up to $20 per hour but decided to leave their jobs and stay home with the kids. Since they have working partners, many of them have reported that they only need to earn $500 to $700 a month in order to make up the difference between their current income requirements and what they earned when they were working outside of the house. That is due to the fact that they no longer have to pay for childcare (or only have to pay a small amount), do not have commuting costs, and do not have to pay other work-related expenses like buying clothes, lunches, and coffee. Of course, how much you will need to make depends on the wage you earned before deciding to stay at home. But if you were making $20 an hour or less outside the home, then it is likely that, in addition to your partner's income, you could easily get by on $500 to $700 a month (or even less) if you are thrifty and find ways to save money.

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!

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." 
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.
I suppose to start my freelance work right in a moment as I was really motivated by your advice, tank God I already have a job but still in school and don’t know how to combine it….Very informative article right there! I still think there are questions one needs to ask himself prior to beginning a freelance business. Freelance can be rewarding particularly if you take one step at a time from defining your go.
Have a support system. You may be a stay-at-home mom with a job, but that doesn't mean you won't need occasional childcare. You might have a partner, grandparent, or another family member who can step in and help when he or she is not working. You might have another mom that you can swap play dates with. Or you may need to get a casual babysitter, even if it is a teenager who can come over after school or on weekends.
What do you consider your most important piece of marketing material? Your catalog? Your direct mail? Your advertisements? Your social media accounts? How about your business card? Is that still as important as it once was or has it been replaced with LinkedIn and other contact apps on your never-more-important smartphone? Historically, your business card […]
I’m going to be the primary caregiver for our child (arriving in 10 weeks, give or take!) but also work part-time mostly from home for my business. I’m happy to have you as a model, a few months ahead of me! I do plan to travel for speaking engagements for some of my income when the baby is > 12 weeks old, which will necessitate occasional babysitters, and it remains to be seen whether I’ll view that as a welcome or unwelcome break from our child.
One could easily argue that I spend way too much money at Starbucks. And while I would agree, I’ve come to accept that it’s a part of my routine that has helped me build my business. I learned this from my cousin whom I greatly admire. She’s a very successful work-at-home mom and after dropping the kids off at pre-school in the morning she would swing through Starbucks as a ritual that marked the transition from being mom, to being at work. Your ritual doesn’t need to include Starbucks, it could be a mug of tea, changing clothes, turning on music, etc. The key is to find something that helps your transition from “home time” to “work time” during naps. 

Premier Designs is a high fashion jewelry company, started in 1985. It’s a direct sales company, like many others mentioned, but it has one of the best compensation packets on the “market”. You get out of Premier what you put into it! You make 50% of everything you sell and, once you join, you are surrounded by a wonderful group of ladies that want to make sure that you succeed!
You already spend way too much time pinning on Pinterest and posting fabulous pics on Instagram. Now get paid for your social-media savvy! The social-media evaluator will need to improve the relevancy of the newsfeed for a leading global social-media client. You’ll need to commit to working one to four flexible hours a day, five days per week. For some projects, at least one day must be a weekend day. Doing outstanding work will make you eligible for additional social-media projects. To qualify, you’ll have to perform online daily social-media use (i.e., Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, etc.), have strong communication skills and a high-speed Internet connection. 
I have two small children and found going to a workplace full time was incredibly difficult alongside meeting the children’s needs (and paying for childcare!). It was very scary leaving a place of security and heading towards the unknown of being self-employed and working from home. I believed in myself and took the plunge to teach online for an established company. It was the best decision. The job is fun and energising and I fit it when my kids are at school. My children are happy and calm and I’m not worried about finances.
The most challenging part about being a WAHM is that there is no escape. Work is always surrounding me, staring me in the face, daring me to tackle it. When I read to my toddler, work taunts me, “Don’t you want to finish writing that blog post? You’re almost done.” When my nine-year-old wants me to go bike riding after dinner, work reminds me, “You don’t have time for that. Your toddler didn’t take a nap today and you only got 30 minutes of work done.” Work is my sixth child—and my most annoying. As much as I love writing, work steals time away from my family and no matter how much time I give I devote to it, work is never satisfied. It always wants more.
If you don't learn to keep your roles as mom and businesswoman separate, giving each your full concentration for a set amount of time, you'll never feel like you're doing either well. To separate mentally from the rest of the house, set up a private office area, recommends Lauren Kohl, an attorney and mom of two in Newton, Massachusetts. She works out of a converted closet, a kid-free zone that helps her to detach from the rest of her house. If she can't see the dirty rompers in the hamper, she's less inclined to leave her desk to launder them, she says. Plus, it helps you disengage from your job if you have a door to close. If you don't have an office, try making a list of everything you're going to do the next day, leave it in your work space, and walk away. "You're doing something to turn work off," says Durst.
Everyone needs to do what suits them and their financial/emotional/physical/social needs best. I have friends that would go nuts at home and for me it was and is my ideal life. We got married fairly young (23) and had our first at 25, then the second at 28 and then the third at 30. That’s lots of pregnancy, birthing, nursing and not sleeping. I felt so blessed and, honestly, omniscient because prior to conceiving our first son I knew I wanted to stay home with him. My husband made twice my income and I knew we could live on it because we had at different times when I was changing jobs. It has been challenging at times, sure, but it was the right choice for us and led me to think of all kinds of ways to cut our budget, be frugal, be mindful of resources and make our lives happy and full with simple things. That mindset got us through paying off debt, paying off our house, starting to invest and starting our own small business. Now the kids are all in school and I do the books for our pest control company. Our income is modest by most standards but it is the most we have ever made and we feel positively rich…but we always were. We knew how to make a little do a lot and we had peace in our hearts about our lives. I wish the same for everyone.
Are you fluent in multiple languages? Did you kill it on your SATs or are you particularly knowledgeable about a certain topic? Consider being an online tutor! You still get the satisfaction of seeing first-hand the difference you have made in a student’s life…all from the comfort of your home. Tutors are typically part time and are paid hourly, but depending on your expertise and needs of your client(s), you may be able to secure full time -- and super lucrative -- work.
To really find the job that is right for you, you need to know what you are looking for. Already you know you want a working stay-at-home job, but that job must also fit your abilities, passions, time and financial needs. So let’s set up some guidelines. I have a free printable for you to fill out with your own guidelines that you can get by subscribing.

Being a social media manager can be of the best work-from-home jobs if you’re autonomously managing a company’s social media presence. As the voice of the organization, you can manage the strategy and the day-to-day support for their top social platforms. This could include content creation, advertising budget and daily engagement. Having your own thriving social media presence will help you get experience and show your prospective clients your know-how. Social media marketing changes faster than a newborn in a diaper...so be willing to stay on top of the trends.
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.

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.

The past few months have been been some of the most eventful of our lives. From welcoming our first child (ok, second if you count Frugal Hound) to buying our homestead property, Mr. Frugalwoods and I feel like we’ve been on a wonderful–yet chaotic–roller coaster of hectic-ness. Amid these changes–and largely because of them–I also made the decision to quit my full-time office job and become a work-at-home Mommywoods.

The field of health care has always been a top choice for working women. In fact, over 75 percent of health care practitioners, technicians, and technologists are women. And almost 88 percent of health care support occupations are filled by women. So it makes sense that the health industry can provide opportunities to earn income for stay-at-home moms. Take a look at these two options:
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!
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. With our help, you’ll be able to find the perfect one for you.
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 was with my ex for ten years married for 5 of those years and have a beautiful son who is turning 5 very soon. 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. I am so passionate and so pleased at my self and the people i work with because i can finally go on a site like this and not need to have to fight to read every link to find a way to get me out a situation ….Im not a saleperson..im a MOM who has finnaly made it work and i wanted to thank sites like this and others for helping so much ..god bless….. if anyone does want to know what i am talking you are most welcomed to email me …..its my personal email and i have no problem sharing it ….AnaisCReativeme@gmail.com…..i hope your struggles become no more and i know that if you had the oppurtunity to find something that could be so benifical to you and your lilones..you would at least invest in your self …have a great and wonderful day
Another drag of the work-at-home mom daily grind, is social and professional isolation. For an introvert like me, I think, I could care less about interacting with humans face-to-face all day. The less humans, the better. However, I know the corporate dance. I used to do it. There is a certain amount of small talk that goes a long way towards staying in good standing with management and securing one’s future. I also know how humans work — we all feed off of some level of engagement and connection with one another. If we didn’t, we wouldn’t live in communities or ever get lonely. 
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.
Similarly, Leah Charney, 34, cares for her infant son while working at home as a marketing and operations consultant in Colorado. Postpartum, she returned to a demanding job but quickly left to scale back and work from home while her husband still worked full-time. Her son goes to day care two days a week—that’s when she schedules meetings and tackles larger projects. On other days, she works while he eats and naps.
For those of you who don’t already know, The Balanced Life is my full-time job. I work from home to keep this site running and also teach in a studio/train in-home clients for a few hours per week. It was always my dream to get this site to place where I could stay home with my kids and also build a business that I’m passionate about. I’m thrilled that it’s worked out but to say it’s been easy would be a lie.
My global turnkey eCommerce business is completely hassle-free. No product stock-up, no product delivery, no customer service and no other headache logistic issues at all. I am very happy with this simple business that enabled me to earn more than what I earn in my previous architecture job with much lesser time being spent. The best part is I start having some passive income in just less than a year. Most importantly is that this business allowed me take care of my little girl without stress. I can even bring my girl along when I am doing my business!
2. Email processing—Like envelope stuffing, you are not processing emails at all. You pay a starter fee in order to get information about how to set up a web page. You can pay an additional fee to have the company set up a web page for you. Then you are required to start running (and paying for) the same online ads that attracted you. Every time someone clicks on one and signs up, you are supposed to receive a commission.
For many moms, the idea of earning money from home rather than trekking off to an office each day has a great amount of appeal. You can get to work in an instant, do your job in your sweatpants if you like, and be at home for your kids when school is out. But setting up that situation for yourself – and making it financially viable – can be tricky. So how do you become a work-at-home mom?

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?

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.
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.
Cambly is an online, foreign language, tutoring platform that lets individuals practice their language skills with a native speaker. Online tutors make 17 cents per minute ($10.20 per hour) talking to paying Cambly users. To get started, you must be a native English or Spanish speaker; you must have a webcam and Internet connection. Payments are made via PayPal.
The American workforce needs women, but neither the government nor most employers make it easy for mothers to actually work. The Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development analyzed maternity leave in 42 countries and found that the U.S. was the least generous of all the industrialized nations, guaranteeing no leave or pay. Bulgaria has the best policy with almost 59 weeks of paid leave. The International Labour Organization says that protecting expectant and nursing mothers from job discrimination is “a precondition for achieving genuine equality of opportunity,” yet workplace discrimination against mothers in the U.S. is rampant—from getting paid less than men to having a job offer rescinded because of a pregnancy.
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:
Over the years I've resented my husband and friends who "get" to leave, who have a reason to shower, get dressed, leave the apartment and have a commute where they can read, email, text, sleep, stare off into space and sit without someone tugging at or spitting up on them. There were times when the thought of a childless coffee run or business lunch actually brought me to jealous tears. (And then when I did finally leave the house, because my mom was there or I had hired help, I felt guilty. What's with that?) Meanwhile, I often found myself apologizing to associates for interrupted calls as I disciplined or catered to my kid, and emails took me hours, sometimes days, to answer. Then again, I could wear my yoga or PJ pants all day, snuggle up and watch a cartoon and nap when my daughter napped (at least in theory)—luxuries my husband and corporate friends didn’t get to indulge in.
While not exactly frugal, we just sucked it up and paid. I would have paid for it even if it was more than I made. I’m one of those women that just can’t be a stay-at-home parent – it’s not in me, and there’d have been a lot of mess for Dad to clean up if I had stayed home. We moved to an area where daycare is half what it was in the DC metro area (that’s about all that’s cheaper!), although our district only has half-day Kindergarten. Once Daughter Person starts 1st grade next year, our expenses will be reduced even further. It’s about the same price per day for care before/after kindergarten as it is for full day day care ($30/day vs $35/day).
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.
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.
The work-at-home mom revolution was born out of moms and families looking to find solutions to the ever-growing demands of modern parenting, while keeping a professional identity. It was sparked by a very clear need in corporate America – families needed more flexibility. They needed a change. However, the burden of change fell on the moms and they could only go so far.
Some sites reportedly pay around $5.00 per article or lower, whereas more reputable sites are known to pay $25.00 to $30.00 or more per article. Other sites will pay you by the number of page views that the article receives, and writers have reported never being paid. There are also reports of few or confusing directions and guidelines, which can make it hard to produce the content that is desired. So it is important for you to know what you are being paid and to consider how much time you are putting in versus what you are getting from it. If you are a talented writer, then odds are that there are better avenues for you to pursue in order to achieve good pay for your work.
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.

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
That is so wonderful TaMarra. Congratulations! As a mom of young kids, I would love to learn about how to disciple my kids from an experienced mom. I would recommend checking out Kindle Direct Publishing or Create Space. Both are through Amazon and allow you to list your book directly on Amazon either in print or for Kindle. That’s a great place to start. Also, starting a blog is a great way to connect with potential readers that might be interested in your book.
While working at home may not allow you to stay in your prior profession, it can allow you to keep your business skills fresh while you take a break from your regular job. The skills you learn while working at home, coupled with the years of experience, could be seen as justification for higher pay if you choose to return to your previous career down the road.

Stay-at-home mom jobs are growing in popularity. In fact, the number of people who are working from home (an arrangement that is also called telecommuting) has been growing as more workers and employers realize the benefits. Overall, telecommuting eases traffic congestion and reduces our carbon footprint. Studies have also found that teleworkers can be up to 35 to 40 percent more productive than their office counterparts. Companies that allowed employees to work from home found a 63-percent reduction in scheduled absences, and almost all of the companies found that their employee retention rates dramatically improved.1
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.
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.
Rent baby gear to traveling families. BabyQuip.com is a great stay at home mom job as it connects traveling families with family-friendly people at their vacation destination who rent, deliver, and set up baby gear to their hotel or vacation rental. Easily create your rental website and select the gear you want to rent, your rental prices, delivery areas and fees. Fun and rewarding work. Head of Community for the company, Trish McDermott, tells us moms can make about $1,000/month while delighting traveling families as a BabyQuip Trusted Partner.
I know this is fairly controversial in the parenting world but if you plan to work from home I can’t stress the value of a schedule enough. Blake was never on a strict time-based schedule, but she has had a very regular routine since she was about 3-months-old. We followed Babywise and she fell right in line with the natural routine (eat, play, sleep – and no I never ignore her hunger or sleep cues). Knowing when she was going to sleep and when she needed to eat was imperative to being able to return to work and maintain my sanity.
I cannot thank you enough for the info you provided! I went back to work before my son turned 4. Now he’s 12 & I feel like I’ve missed out on so many summers & just time together because I’m working 5 days a week. I plan to take a serious look at the opportunities you listed and hopefully I can find a way to stay home and still earn an income. Plus, I drive 60 miles a day, saving almost $300 a month in gas alone would go a long way! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Most work-at-home moms don't start out with a full-time telecommuting position right away. The work-at-home lifestyle is usually something you build over time. In fact, you may need to build up your savings first. Plan to start small. If you're moving from the office to telecommuting, maybe try just a couple days a week at first to see how it works for you and your employer. If you're building a business, that takes time.
The web abounds with information for people who want to sell their services online (coaching, consulting, writing, etc), but what if you want to sell actual products — and still be location-independent? Turn to Tropical MBA, where Dan Andrews and Ian Schoen share the strategies they used to build a multi-million dollar business. Even better, give their weekly podcast a listen — it covers a range of topics every aspiring entrepreneur should know about.
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:

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.
