Making an income by working from home is a goal of many stay at home moms. The trick is finding something that fits both your interests and your ever changing schedule.
We’ve rounded up 3 fun ways moms can start working from home and be their own boss. The motto shared between these three ideas is you’re doing it anyway, so why not get paid for it?
Day care – If you’re going to be home all day with your kids why not take on a few more and get paid for the day? Day care is a straight forward job other parents are happy to pay a premium for.
The average cost of day care in the United States is just about $1,000 per month. If you were to take on 3 extra children (friends of your kids, maybe?) you would be on pace to earning $36,000 a year. Not bad!
Pet sitting – We’ve talked in-depth about how to make money pet sitting before. If you think taking on more kids might be a little too much for you to handle, consider looking after pets.
Don’t get us wrong – pets need tender love and care as well, but certainly they give you a little more room to breathe than children do. How often do your kids voluntarily decide to take a 2 hour afternoon nap?
Odd jobs – Whether you prefer to use apps to find local micro jobs or want to create your own home based business, there is plenty opportunity from finding various small problems neighbors have and solving them.
How about offering laundry service twice a week? Pickup their dirty laundry, drop it off clean, and collect $20 each time.
As a stay at home mom you know that making school lunches with your children can be a struggle. Imagine how convenient it would be if someone you trusted made lunches for your kid that they loved every day of the week.
The opportunities are endless. Solve problems that other moms have and you will find a way to make money on your own.
