Great Work at Home Jobs for Moms

Working from home is something that many people want to do, particularly moms who are looking after their children but still want to earn some money. They may also not want to go back to the 9-5 routine, but start a business from home that they can work the hours they want and structure it around their family life.


If you are a stay at home mom then check out these great business ideas below.


1. Child Care/Baby Sitting

As a mom yourself you will already be experienced at looking after children and if you really enjoyed doing it then looking after other people’s children could be something else to consider. Before going at this business idea whole hearted to begin with, it would be worth trying it first to see if it is something you could do as a job. Maybe start by offering to look after a friends children and see how you get on or just start with a couple of hours a day and a few days a week. If it is something that you love then you can gradually take on more hours and more children. Word of mouth will play a huge part and once parents know that you do a great job then they will recommend you.


Please note - if this is something you want to do as a business it is vitally important that you go through all the correct channels to see if you need any qualifications, health and safety certificates, insurance and go through any other relevant checks before proceeding.


2. Home Tutor / Online Tutor

This is a great option particularly if you are already qualified as a teacher. The demand for home tutoring or online tutoring is growing all of the time and so if you feel that you can teach a subject then this is a route worth following up.


3. Cake decorating

If you are good at baking and decorating then you can certainly look at this option as a great way to make some extra money. There is a huge demand for cakes for all sorts of special occasions, including weddings, birthdays, good luck, leaving present and many many more. A business like this has very low start up costs and once you start building up a portfolio of your work and word of mouth spreads then your business will grow in no time at all.


4. Writing

If you have a computer and internet access (and if you are reading this then you most probably have), then writing is another good working idea for stay at home moms. No previous experience is really necessary and again, this has very low setup costs. There are many individuals or companies out there that need people to write reports, articles, proof reading.


5. eBay Business

Selling on eBay is a great way of making extra money and the great thing is that you can start off by just selling stuff that you have around the house, generating instant cash. You can also see whether you like this way of making money without investing any money and, if you do, you can then look at setting it up as a part or full time business. eBay is great as literally anything can sell on and it is not at all complicated to get started.
