If you love to find bargains and can’t get enough of the clearance aisles, then selling on Amazon may be for you! Jessica from TheSellingFamily.com was able to take her love of finding deals and turn it into a 6-figure side hustle in just 1 year. You can grab a free 7 day email course right here and she will explain everything you need to know about how it all works and help you decide if it’s the right choice for you. (I think this is one of the EASIEST jobs stay at home moms can do with no experience!)
I work at home as an Operator Services contractor. Many people are scared of some of these jobs because they appear to be “too good to be true” and because you do have to pay for your background check up front. Some of them might be, however I have worked for http://www.LiveOps.com for 3 years now, and it has been great. My neighbor worked for them for 9 years. I choose my own hours, with shifts as short as 30 minutes. I have worked my way up to a specialty line, which I enjoy more that the “starter” line all agents start on. There are pros and cons, as with any job, but the pay is good (I average $15/hour) and I love the incredible flexibility. Agents are needed 24 hours per day, so you have lots of options. It is not available in every state though, So check the web site for more info.
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.
oh goodness i hope i can get where everyone else is we are expecting our first in august and im working at a clothing store trying to help. We are looking for our own place and with car payments its a little difficult to afford anything so i have been thinking of other ideas i can do to make extra money so we can move into a place soon before the baby comes but i just cant seem to figure it out.. any ideas?
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? 🙂
This is a great list! Some of these I have never thought of for the stay at home moms (and stay at home dads 😉 ) out there. I have done a lot of research on different ways to make some income and I am always amazed at the ideas I still routinely find. You mentioned working for Amazon. I know Amazon has a platform that offers some micro jobs you can do as well. They pay small amounts but if you do a lot they can add up! I also like Uber! But only for driving during the day. I wouldn’t suggest driving for Uber at night.
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:

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!
P.S. If you want to learn from some of the best in the business I highly recommend you check out the Work at home Summit. This summit is a collection of entrepreneurs talking about a myriad of different work at home businesses and jobs they’ve started and grown. This is 100% the best work at home event I’ve ever seen. (Totally scam free.) And it’s free. You can find out more here.

As blogs continue to gain popularity as a go-to resource for recipes, fashion, parenting, current events and more, the number of blogs out there are higher than ever. Blogging is the perfect job for moms because of the flexibility, lack of deadlines and freedom of content. Many moms use their mothering knowledge and experiences as a basis for their blog content. 

I stayed home as a freelancer from when my daughter was born to when she was just over 2 1/2 (and we added a 1 1/2 year old to the mix too haha!). When my oldest was 2 1/2, I put them in part-time daycare to allow me more time to freelance and to get the kids some extra interaction. It does get a bit harder as they get older (at least in my case). And now, good grief, they fight alllll the time. My oldest will be 4 in a week and my youngest is now 2 1/2! They go to an awesome church daycare five days a week 9am – 1pm and I work full-time but am able to work remotely the majority of the time. For right now, it’s a perfect scenario for our family.
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!!
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.

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.

Consulting is a great option for stay-at-home parents because it’s likely something you can do regardless of your career path -- as long as you’re particularly knowledgeable about something. If you’re creative about problem solving and you’re good at seeing the picture -- and if you like offering advice -- consulting may be the way to go. Many professionals who decide they’d like to work from home or enjoy more flexible hours  tend to turn their talents to consulting.
When my 1st was born, my husband and I made about the same income ($90K each) but my field is more flexible and I really wanted to stay home so that’s what we did. This decision was made a lot easier by having purchased a house we could afford on just one income, having two paid-in-full cars, and banking my income for the two years prior to having a baby. I was home for 7 years and during that time did regular freelance work in my field, mainly for former coworkers. I never really sought out any work but maintained my connections so that people thought of me. I also starting working 1 weekend day at a library and that job ended up providing our health insurance when my husband changed jobs and his new company did not have good benefits. I loved my years at home and wouldn’t trade it for anything. When youngest (of 2) started K I had no trouble finding a flexible full-time job that I love and my kids enjoy going to the school aftercare program with all their friends. You are right that early frugal choices really help set you up to make the choices you want. If we’d overspent on our house or cars we’d have felt like I had to work and I’d have missed so much.

I’m trying to build my business, so I can stay at home. So currently I am working a more-than-full-time job out of the house, and working my Jamberry business in any free time I have! I’ve never liked selling things, but I fell in love with Jamberry’s product, so I knew even if I only bought for myself and family id come out on top. I feel safe having them on my nails, as they’re non-toxic! – Andrea Stewart at Jamberry Nails
A little bit ago i started selling nerium as an income supplement. Ive been having amazing luck with it and the best part if that i can do it with 3 kids! I dont have to host parties in order to suceed or go anywhere. I am due now in 3 months with a little boy and my goal is to have nerium and a side sewing business that can make me more than i make now working 10 hrs a week. This post helped a lot because there are alot of scams out there on working from home. Its messy business!

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.
We have alot of our agents who sell Disney. If you want more information visit http://www.travelathome.com I am also happy to put you in touch with some of our agents who are doing it so you can ask them questions. I started out doing travel from home back in 1997. I started taking on other moms who wanted to work from home doing travel – I trained them and helped them. Then before I knew it I had over 150 agents! Now I have a full administrative team and I still work from home. We have a great group of agents and they always help one another out on our Facebook page. If you have questions I am happy to answer them.
Good for you! I’m due next month and plan on dropping one of my two part time jobs therefore just leaving me to cover about 18 hours a week (my husband is a teacher and ends his day early) of childcare. We are super fortunate that we live by family that can help us with childcare, at least temporarily. But our maternity leave system in the states is so awful that it really puts a lot of people in difficult situations. I feel very fortunate to be able to work a skilled part time job but have been very surprised at how mom-unfriendly my employer is. It seems to me that we need to be encouraging more people to have babies and our current maternity leave/daycare/preschool set up does not do this at all. I’m glad you found a solution that works for you! Gotta love the Internet.
In the eyes of the law, an independent contractor differs from an employee in that an independent contractor has the freedom to act autonomously to get a job done as they see fit — as long as you meet the contract requirements. As an independent contractor you’re not entitled to benefits like paid time off or health insurance. You will also be responsible for paying taxes on your earnings.
