typewriterEntering into the workforce can seem daunting as a mother. It can be especially hard if your kids are still young and need you to be around. Having a job and being a mother doesn’t always seem practical, but with the amount of work available for you to do from the comfort of your own home, you never have to second guess yourself ever again.

There’s a variety of jobs available for a wide range of people and skill sets. Being able to work at your own pace and set your own hours is a stay at home mom’s dream.


Because transcribing can be seen as tedious, there’s a large market for freelance transcribers. A transcriber listens to an audio or video recording and types up what is being said. While it may not seem like a huge deal, sometimes having a written transcription of a meeting or an event can be extremely essential to a business.

Graphic Design

For all of you computer savvy and creative moms, graphic design is a great option that can be done remotely from anywhere in the world. From logos to posters, people are looking for creative minds to help them promote their business and personal brands. Because it can all be done on your computer, there’s no need for you to have to leave your home office to get work done.

Brand Ambassadors

For those moms interested in doing more than just freelancing, you can also start your own business while in your pajamas. Companies like Amway allow you to begin earning income through their compensation plan. You do this by selling as much or as little inventory as you want while creating a network of people that you can sponsor and enable to do the same. The coolest part of working with Amway is that you can choose what you want to sell, such as health, beauty and household products. This way you can be truly passionate about what you’re selling.

Writing & Editing

From creative writing to blog posts, their are plenty of people and companies that are looking for talented writers. Certain sites connect you with companies that are looking for writers that are experts in pretty much every topic imaginable. Some of your favorite blogs are also likely looking for people to contribute to their website and are willing to pay.

Or maybe you’re the kind of person that goes on Facebook and spots grammar mistakes faster than anyone you know. Why not get paid to fix all those mistakes? Freelance editing has become a booming business in recent years. From emails to articles, companies and individuals will pay for a second opinion or even just a second glance. You also get to choose what you want to edit, so there’s no obligation to read through someone’s 100-page dissertation.

Virtual Assistant

As mothers, you become experts in multi-tasking and staying organized. Fortunately, there are people that are not quite as skilled in that department. Some people need help maintaining their calendar or setting up meetings. Because of the technology available today, you no longer have to sit in an office to be someone’s assistant. Virtual Assistants work remotely over email and telephone, making it the perfect job for stay-at-home moms.

Arts & Crafts

For all of the artistic and crafty moms out there, now is the time to sell your creations online. Sites like Etsy allow you to not only sell your wares to people who are looking to add some beauty into their lives, but it also helps you create a store front where people can look into purchasing other items from you in the future.

Thanks to technology, you never have to feel like you have to choose between your family and your career. Making money from home has never been easier and being a working mom no longer has to stay a dream; it can be your reality.
