13 Of The Best Jobs For Stay At Home Moms
If you’re looking for some extra cash to help support your family as a stay-at-home mom, I’ve compiled a quick list of the top BEST jobs for stay-at-home moms.
These jobs require minimal (if any) prior experience or skills, and pay well…
Blogging: Start A Blog
Of course, I’m partial to this because it’s what I do!
I am proud to say that after 4 years of blogging, I’ve finally pushed into a 6-figure income.
Starting a blog isn’t for the weak, however, and it doesn’t yield immediate cash.
It does take time, and nowadays several social media profiles to help promote content effectively.
Customer Service Representative
Places like CVS and Amazon typically hire remote customer service representatives.
You would be required to answer calls, assist with complaints, and help answer customer questions.
If you have exceptional typing skills and can spare time to transcribe audio into writing, this would be a great option for you.
Are you passionate about a topic, and want to share what you know with others?
Consider starting your own podcast!
I know I love listening to podcasts while I’m doing dishes, laundry, or just plugging away online with work.
Open Your Own Online Store To Sell Goods Or Services
If you have a sewing machine, Cricut, or even a computer – you can sell items online!
Maybe it’s an online design you’ve made.
Consider using your cutting machine to help you create things like mugs, T-shirts, stickers, hats, jewelry, etc.
With a sewing machine, you can make baby bibs, aprons, dresses, Christmas tree skirts, stockings, and so much more!
You can even knit or crochet items like washcloths, scarves, and baby booties.
You could sell on your own website, or open a store on a platform like Etsy.
Become A Graphic Designer
Do you have a knack for creating designs?
A great job for a stay-at-home mom who is creative and tech-savvy would be a graphic designer.
Graphic designers are great for helping people customize their blogs, social media channels, etc.
Some experience with Adobe Illustrator would be beneficial.
If you have a camera and are personable, you could always become a family photographer.
Family photographers are booming right now, and are able to justify higher and higher prices as the years go by as expectations from customers go up!
Investing in family pictures that are Instagram-perfect or Pinterest-worthy is on the rise.
You may need to start out with lower prices to build your portfolio and gain experience before making the big bucks with this profession.
Search Engine Evaluator
With this job, you would simply search for the terms given to you, and report your findings and experiences back to the search engine.
Write Children’s Books
As moms, we spend a good portion before bedtime reading stories to our children before tucking them in for the night.
What if you could write one of those books??
I know I’ve thought about it myself.
Online Stylist Or Personal Shopper
If you have a sense of fashion and want to help other people, consider becoming an online stylist!
Stylists help shop and pick out outfits for their clients for a general wardrobe reset, special events, photography events, and more.
If you are great with numbers and accounting, this is a great option to think about.
You can scan receipts, track expenses, and file quarterly or yearly taxes for your clients.
Coach (Life, Spiritual, Fitness, etc.)
If you’re passionate about helping others, a Coach might be the right stay-at-home job for you!
You can start an online coaching business to help people with their lives, their spirituality, or their fitness goals.
Virtual Administrative Assistant
I have one of these – she’s amazing!
As a virtual administrative assistant, you can help business owners online complete some of the administrative tasks they don’t have as much time for.
Some of these tasks would be…
- checking e-mails and responding to them
- creating images for social platforms like LTK or Pinterest
- managing social media (Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook, etc.)
- scheduling content for social media
- scheduling appointments
- writing content for the company’s site (blog posts)
- managing e-mail newsletters
- booking appointments
- calendar management
- and so much more!
