About Blog Welcome. My name is Angie Nelson. Whether you are looking for home business ideas, marketing information or how to earn an income from blogging, you will find it on The Work at Home Wife. I aim to provide valuable information about how to make money from home, tools of the trade and how to reach those goals that will provide you with the means to earn a living online without having to live online.
You need to consider the amount of time that you are putting in compared to the amount of money that you are making. This includes time and money spent marketing, throwing parties, processing orders, and arranging deliveries or pick-ups of merchandise. (You need to be sure to account for your gas and mileage as well.) That can all result in hours of work for a $50.00 check. Another factor to consider is that many companies do not limit how many sales representatives are able to sign up in one area. So as a company becomes more popular, the market can easily become oversaturated. Before you know it, there are 10 people within a five-mile radius of your house that are selling the same great products as you.

Congratulations to you. A year ago my husband and I made a similar lifestyle change. He has his own handyman job while I work full time from home. This is the best decision of our lives. Although we don’t make much as we both used to having full time jobs, our lives are so peaceful, bLended and less chaotic. We don’t depends on my inkeD to drop/pick them up from school. Its a win win for use. Reilly sometimes less is way more.

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.
6. Think about the following: What are your skills? Why do you want/need to go back to work? How much time can you give to work? What are your cash flow needs? Emotional needs? It's taken me over 20 years of moving in and out of the workforce, and I'm happy to say my confidence is coming back. I have a terrific relationship with my now grown children and feel grateful that they are turning into the adults I hoped they would be. I'll never know what would have happened had I taken a different path but I have no regrets. Each decision I made and hurdle I overcame brought me here. I love what I do and I now know that the experience I had has lead me to help other women navigate a smoother path.

Hi Valerie, There are many different side hustles to choose from. If you have a specific interest in one and there is not already information to help you get started on the site, I can create it so please let us know. As far as scams go, this post will tell you about a few you need to watch out for: https://singlemomsincome.com/top-work-at-home-scams/ 

It’s a good idea to check your local Craigslist market for home-based jobs. Sometimes, you’ll find a job that requires you to come into the office for orientation before you can work from home. For example, food delivery service company, DoorDash, hires contractors to key menus from home, but first they have to come into the Atlanta office for training.
There are some good jobs on this list, but I just want to warn others that some of the gigs on this list are very low paying. Some Fiverr sellers do very well, but the majority of gigs don’t earn more than $50 a month. Also, keep in mind that if you are writing 1,000 word articles for $25 each for bidding site clients, you will burn out because you’d have to write a ton of those to equal the wages you’d make at a minimum wage job.
Swagbucks is an online platform where you can earn points called SB, which can be redeemed for gift cards and coupons. You can easily earn SB points by watching videos, playing games, answering questions, shopping online, and even surfing the web using their toolbar. Refer your friends, and you’ll earn even more SB points. Your SB points can be traded in for gift cards from Amazon, Target, Starbucks, PayPal, and Walmart.

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. 

And when she sleeps, I’m at work. These clear-cut lines and rituals have really helped me to stay on top of my work while also caring for my daughter. Don’t get me wrong, some days are still really hard. It’s a continual learning process. And I know it’s only a matter of time before I have to change things around again, but if you’re trying to balance work, life and productivity I hope some of these tips will help.
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?!). I actually think you’d be a fantastic fit for this job because using the hands and facial expressions are a key element to keeping ESL students engaged. Feel free to comment back here or email me at [email protected] if you have any more questions. This job is so much fun and I’m happy to help 🙂 -Autumn 

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:)
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
If you're a good typist, you may be able to pick up a little cash from home using that skill. If you're a really great typist, well, then you may be able to earn some good money in transcription. In addition to general transcription, there are opportunities for transcribing in both the medical and legal fields. In some specialized fields, certification may be required.

I was surprised that Nerium International was not on your list. The company is less than 4 years old and has broken so many records! Our CEO, Jeff Olson, gets invited year after year to speak to and teach other CEOs at their annual conferences. He is nicknamed “The Millionaire Maker”, and has brought many many companies from the bottom to the top. Nerium did $100 Million their first year with one product, in one country. And it doubles every year after that! It is also the youngest company to reach the top 40 list of the Direct Selling Association! This company is climbing fast to the top, and I’m proud to be involved in it.
You might be thinking, “Why do I still need childcare? I work at home!” Yes, it’s true you now have the “luxury” of working at home in your pajamas while sharing cheddar bunnies with your toddler—but don’t forget you are still a work at home mom. Working from home moms are MUCH different than stay at home moms. You still have deadlines to meet, virtual client meetings to schedule, and even the occasional in-person meeting. (Yup, you have to actually get dressed for those—GASP!). I know childcare can be super expensive but I beg you not to skimp on this one. It will save your sanity six months from now when you are stretched out to the max, on deadline and can’t take the guilt of playing another episode of Curious George. The truth is you need time and mental space to really work. You’ll be able to give your best to your clients if you hire some extra help. Your kids will be taken care and you can work guilt-free. If you’re just starting out, even a few hours of childcare 1–2 days a week will help. Right now we are “nanny-sharing” in four to six-hour chunks a few times a week. I also work on the weekends while my husband is with the kids. Other moms I know hire college students, do a childcare co-op or even trade childcare time with other moms.
1. Envelope stuffing—You are asked to send in money to receive a starter kit and told that you will be paid for every envelope that you stuff and send. What you end up receiving is a package telling you how to advertise the scam. The goal is that you advertise the same envelope-stuffing scheme to others and allegedly get a kickback for every person who responds to your ads and signs up.
I found the Younique company and it has been a huge blessing in my life! We sell high quality mineral based makeup and other beauty products that are made from more natural products. Have you heard of the amazing 3D Lashes!?!?! The first savings I get is I get wonderful makeup for free or almost free. It lasts along time also! The 2nd Is I make awesome commissions from my friends hosting online parties! It has been a huge blessing in my families life!!

Not only that, but – I am never ALONE as a stay at home mom (let’s face it, hours and hours with only babies to talk to can feel lonely after a while. The babies are great company, but the conversion is not exactly  – I have stay at home mom blogger FRIENDS. Women I talk to everyday online; we support and encourage each other and learn blogging things together.

You could let him or her know that multiple reports have found that at-home workers can be more productive and engaged because their job satisfaction increases and they have fewer distractions from around the office. A 2014 report in the Harvard Business Review supported those points and also found that working from home resulted in less employee sick time as well as reduced overhead costs for businesses.8
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 

Anyone who has gone through The Pilates Body Program knows how big I am on Sunday prep time. Grocery shopping, meal planning and food prepping set the week up to be healthy and stress-free. I make lunches and prepare snacks on Sunday afternoons so that I don’t have to spend extra time in the kitchen during the week. There is a silly amount of cooking and clean up that happens for a 1-year-old who hardly eats, so saving time on myself is super helpful. When lunch time rolls around I just open the fridge, take out my dish and I’m good to go.
I have been readong your blog for awhile but never commented. I was so thrilled when you announced your homestead purchase, hearing anyones dream come to fruition after hard work is always exciting. I stay home with my two kids under 3.5yrs. I heard a lot as well about stimulation and I worried. Kids parallel play until they are at least 2-3years old though, they are more interested in us. Mama guilt can be around the corner with any decision we make though. What I discovered is babies want our love and our time. Sharing our world is thrilling. Discovering fans, the washing machine, animals-it’s amazing seeing everything through their eyes. But you realise they ‘need’ very little. Well done on your beautiful baby and the choices you are making.

Many moms find that it helps to put their short-term and long-term goals into writing. That way you can periodically check back to make sure that your efforts are directed toward your long-term goals. It’s also important to allow some room for flexibility. If you find out that you can’t manage the time commitment, for example, or if you suddenly find yourself without a babysitter, you’ll need to be able to modify your plans.
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!

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.

Thank you a lot for this amazing article. I am from Armenia but now I live in Russia. I have refused from my job to come to Russia and now I would like to gain a little money at home and bring up my son. Is it possible to earn money from Russia? What easy methods of gaining will you suggest me in order I could spend less efforts and time, staying more with my son?
When I had a “second” family 5 years ago there was no question one of us, my partner or I would be at home. This decision was based on cost of daycare ( not in the US but still costly) as well as deciding that life is not all about both of us working ourselves silly to get “ahead”. We make do one one solid income and side hustles galore ( my partner is the stay at home parent now and he hauls garbage, fixes lawn mowers and sewing machines, sells on EBay etc, etc). Having the male being the stay at home is also an interesting discussion topic. Raising your own kids if you can do it is priceless. There are other “costs” I found when having kids in daycare. They get sick alot in daycare. I had two older kids go to care from early on and if it was not colds, fevers and communicable illness it was head lice and on and on. My son broke his arm at daycare when he was two. One of us would have to stay home from work to look after the sick child. Your babe is small and I am certain she enjoys life with you rather than being with a stranger all day. You only have to go to the park ( free), walk around the neighbourhood ( free), find a play group ( often free or low cost) to find interaction. School will come soon enough and she will get all the kid time she desires and you will be ready for her to go out in the world. I applaud your decision and congratulate you on making a successful career for yourself at home as a writer and as as a mother which is terribly important “work” for those who do it 🙂 I think society tries to guilt mothers and parents into decisions we make at every turn. I learned a long time ago to do what is right for me and my family and so far it has worked like a charm.
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.

6. Think about the following: What are your skills? Why do you want/need to go back to work? How much time can you give to work? What are your cash flow needs? Emotional needs? It's taken me over 20 years of moving in and out of the workforce, and I'm happy to say my confidence is coming back. I have a terrific relationship with my now grown children and feel grateful that they are turning into the adults I hoped they would be. I'll never know what would have happened had I taken a different path but I have no regrets. Each decision I made and hurdle I overcame brought me here. I love what I do and I now know that the experience I had has lead me to help other women navigate a smoother path.
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. 
This is a big shift I’ve made recently. I love, love, love, receiving emails from readers and other bloggers and used to respond to 100% of them. Unfortunately I’ve gotten to a place where I just can’t do that anymore. I found I was doing it at the expense of being with my family or taking care of myself and my needs. Which does not reflect my values and doesn’t exhibit balance in my own life. So now, I have a form email response for many inquiries noting that I do have a program that includes unlimited email interaction/coaching and at this time in my life my time and energy needs to go to those valuable, committed, paying clients. Don’t let this scare you away from emailing me though! I still love them and respond to as many as I have time for. 🙂
Tell Wut is a survey site where you can win prizes and earn rewards for sharing your opinion. Most surveys award 5 to 15 points per survey, but you can also earn points by referring friends (25 points), creating an account (100 points) and providing your information (100 points). Points can be redeemed for Best Buy, Walmart, Barnes & Noble, Visa, and various other gift cards. Tell Wut has an A- rating with the Better Business Bureau.

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!

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.

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?


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
This is quite new in the world of weddings but is a fantastic idea for anyone who wants to capture their special night. Many brides are now hiring painters to attend the event and paint a scene from the wedding in the painter’s unique style. If you are artistic and enjoy painting, you can expect to make around $4K from each painting. While you do have to attend the wedding to do a live painting, weddings are usually on weekends making this desirable to stay at home moms. You of course pick and choose which dates and weddings you book. Expect to be busier during the spring and summer as that is when weddings happen.

After reading this blog I decided to try one of the places – Clickworker – thought it was right up my alley. I assume these are legit online businesses, but unfortunately, as soon as I signed up with all my information – my Facebook account was hacked! I’m concerned as to what else might happen, but hoping that was it and my account at Clickworker was closed fast enough. Just be careful….
25.  Remember your end-goal. When you’re 82, what will you look back and treasure?  Long for?  My bet is you’ll not think about how you wished you had written one more post, or expanded your company in that one way.  We’ll look back & either love the time we had with our families or wish we would have taken more.  It’s so easy to become swept up in life’s to do’s…live in the moment so you can look back and remember them all.
About Blog I am a clinical scientist professional. My goal is be location independent, i.e working from anywhere in the world with just my laptop and free wifi. No alarm clocks, No commute (if you live in London, then you’d understand why), be my own boss, and travelling with my family. Bottom line, I dont have to be anywhere, or do anything I really don’t want to do. As a MOBE consultant, I get to do exactly what I want. If you are passionate about working from home; then you have come to the right place.
Great article, thanks. I’m a Mom of 4, now a hands-on Nanna. Pretty hard to get things done when your kids are small. When my oldest was being bullied at school I desperately needed money to pay for an alternative private school. So I became an ethical dog breeder. Twenty seven years on I’m still doing it and reckon it beats most other options out there hands down.
Finding a work-from-home opportunity or remote, flexible jobs that pay well may be challenging for stay-at-home moms and dads, but the great news is that there is such a massive range of telecommuting options available these days. So, regardless of whether you are a stay-home mom or dad seeking a side-hustle, an entry-level employee, or someone seeking a a more executive position, there are options!

You are singing my song’s I quit my teaching job when tiny Eivy came along because a) I couldn’t rip myself away from her and b) I’m pretty sure childcare costs more than I was making. Having that freedom allowed me to develop my own photography career which fit perfectly (and still does now that she’s seven) around caring for her. Plus I’m able to take care of all the house and rental property issues which is a huge help to our family.

9.  Since you do have control of your schedule, be involved in your child’s educational experience.  Notice I didn’t simply say “education.”  For some of us, this might mean homeschooling.  For others, it means something entirely different.  If your kids are in traditional school, get involved with their whole experience at school.  Ask them questions about their day, their favorite parts, the parts that stunk.  What did they learn–what did they looove to learn about?  How are their friends, what’s going on with them? It’s not about being nosy or controlling, it’s about quiet guidance and purposeful moments.
Their training is done online and is self-paced. You could finish the program in 4 months but 6 months is probably more realistic. They do however give you up to a year to get it all done. Their program is approved by the American Health Information Management Association and the American Academy of Professional Coders. They work with companies such as CIOX Health, Lexicode, OS2-HCS, TrustHCS, Inovalon, Mckesson that hire their grads to work from home right out of the program.
2. Multi-level marketing (MLM) companies—It is important to recognize that there are completely legitimate companies that can offer you great ways to earn extra money. It is likely that you know people who sell products for companies like Amway, Avon, and Tupperware, which are all MLM businesses. Many moms choose to sell products that they love for MLM companies because it often means that they can buy products at a discount and earn a few dollars on the side by selling items to their family, friends, and neighbors. But when signing up with an MLM company, there are important things to consider and watch out for. One study found that, in the first year of signing up, 50 percent of representatives dropped out. After five years, 90 percent of representatives dropped out. So these are not typically long-term opportunities. And, overall, they are often not profitable either. In fact, it was found that only one in 545 representatives made money after accounting for their expenses.9

Great post Carly! I am in the same boat without as you with going back to work after having a baby. My husband and I decided it’s best that I stay home. I am blogging as well and hope to contribute to my family financially as well. ITs so nice to hear of someone’s success blogging so close to home (I’m from Saskatchewan) it gives me the fire to keep keep going!
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.

I have just started my new blog, Meaningful Nest, last week. Your post couldn’t have come at a more perfect time. I need guidance, and your writing and pictures melted my heart and tugged at the strings on it. I love your advice. I am struggling with doing it all right, and how my children see me, and how what I am doing and what I say to them (the “in a minute” one resonated with me) does stick with them and form their view of me and impacts them significantly. I teach full time as a special education teacher and have started my new blog to do something just for me. BUT I will need help balancing it all, and I will come back to what you said again and again. I have added you to my list of “Meaningful Blogs”. Thank you for your inspiration!!!
I’m a SAHM to two littles and I’m a consultant for Rodan+Fields. The doctors who created Proactiv now have an anti-aging pharmaceutical line. They were a #1 selling clinical line for Nordstrom’s before entering direct sales in 2008. This is the FiRST company with an established brand to ever enter direct sales. We get a huge amount of press coverage in major magazines and we were just named the fourth largest premium skin care brand in the U.S. after Clinque, Estée Lauder and Lancôme. This company is changing the face of direct sales as we know it. I would love to share more. teambarrett.myrandf.biz

You’ll also want to establish some space in the house to organize your work activities. Do you have an office, or a desk, or even a corner of the kitchen where you could keep your computer and some paperwork? It’s important to be able to define your space so that you can make a clean separation between your “work-work” and the rest of your life at home. Plus, you don’t want to run the risk of losing important documents.

This job might have not been your first thought for a stay-at home job, but it is definitely an option. To make this job work as a stay-at-home mom, you could only do appointments when your kids are at school, work as a virtual wedding planner assistant, and/or only offer day-of services. You can earn anywhere from $75-200 an hour. Most wedding planners require a minimum of three-hours with each booking.
Very nice post – totally agree. I saw something on Pinterest recently that said if you don’t listen to your child telling you little stuff now, they won’t bother telling you the big stuff when they’re older – because it’s ALL big stuff to them. And as the mother of a child with a speech delay, every word is precious and I hang on every one of them.
