While being a stay-at-home mom is one of the most rewarding jobs out there, it definitely doesn’t come with the type of income and benefits you deserve. If you’re looking for a way to make money from home while working around your busy schedule as a mom, these 3 ideas may be just what you’re looking for.
1. Start a Business
Easier said than done when you’re elbow-deep in dirty diapers, right? Wrong. With the help of multi-level marketing companies like Vasayo, you can easily build your own business from home through networking both in person and online. Vasayo’s founder, Dallin Larsen, has patterned his business so you can easily make your own schedule to work around your children, spouse, and anything else requiring accommodation. Millions of representatives across the globe have found success with multi-level marketing companies—why can’t you?
2. Find Odd Jobs Online
Are you aware of how many jobs you can do online? From getting paid to take surveys, to tutoring students, and running virtual errands, to even serving on a jury, you can get paid to do just about anything online. While one of these jobs alone likely won’t result in a large income, participating in several of them can leave you with a decent amount of extra money. Bonus—most of these can be done during nap time or after the kids have gone to bed for the night when you’re probably spending your time in front of the computer screen anyway.
3. Sell Your Stuff
Having kids is not only time-consuming and expensive, but requires a whole lot of stuff. Clothes, sports equipment, books, movies, games—the list goes on and on. Have you ever considered selling these items? Find a secondhand store locally or online that will purchase the clothes and shoes your kids grow out of or consider selling them yourself on a local yard sale page or website.
Although you won’t make back exactly what you spent on each item, selling these items allows you to downsize and earn a little money to pay for the next size of clothes or necessary equipment for the next extracurricular activity.
What Are You Waiting For?
Are you ready to make some extra cash and give yourself something else to focus on other than homework, laundry, and dinner? There are endless options available to help you do just that, allowing you to learn new skills, interact with others, and have something to do that is just yours. What are you waiting for?
