If you’re a stay-at-home mom, you already have several full-time jobs—babysitter, teacher, cook, doctor, errand girl, cleaner, etc. However, if you happen to have some free time and want to fill it constructively, you can check out any of these easy side-hustles. These will not only make you busy during the downtime but also put extra money in your pocket. Let’s see some of the best side-jobs for stay-at-home moms:
This career has gotten very popular during the past two years with schools being shut down and all the kids being homeschooled. If you have any education knowledge or special skills, online tutoring might be a great idea for you. Through different platforms and communication channels, you can find suitable students and enjoy a safe way to share your knowledge while your kids are napping and dinner is in the oven.
Similar to teaching, coaching is a great side-job hustle reserved for athletic moms. You can sign up at your local rec league and enjoy quality time outside with a little bit of pay. And if you sign your kids up as well, the entire family will get healthy physical activity and socialization.
Managing social media
Modern moms are amazing at social media and know many secrets to best posting times, the best content and all the latest hashtags. So if you also love to scroll and post on Instagram and Facebook during your breaks, it’s easy to find a business in need of little social media managing. Before you start offering help, take some time to bring your social media profiles to perfection and leave a great impression.
When people leave home for a vacation or business trip and need someone to take care of their pup or kitty, you can take them and give them grooming, food and activity they require. This is an awesome little job on the side that can benefit the entire family—you and your kids will get enough physical activity, kids will get to spend time with animals and you won’t have to commit to getting a dog yourself. If you have a big yard, just make sure to put up some chain mesh fencing to keep the dogs inside and you can provide your furry clients with a heavenly stay at your logging.
Blogging or vlogging
Sure, there’s no guaranteed income from blogging or vlogging, but if your website manages to grow and develop, you can enjoy an earning from ads and selling stuff. To be a successful blogger or vlogger, you need to have a talent for writing and narration so you can write and talk about your special subject. Your blog can concern parenting, cooking, baking, travel or one of your other hobbies—it’s actually good to be specific.
Do you have a bunch of tasty recipes you’ve perfected over the years? Do you have a greased-up kitchen system that allows you to whip up tasty meals in a short time? Do you understand that there are people who don’t know how to fry an egg? Now you see how catering can be a great business idea for you. And you don’t have to work in catering every day, but only cover occasional events like holidays, birthday and graduation parties. Plus, you will always have lunch and snacks ready for your little ones if you make extra!
Providing tech support
If you always have to solve tech issues at home, why not do it for money? Providing tech support is a great way to earn some money while your kids are at school, sleeping or even bouncing on your lap. You can do anything from troubleshooting, reviewing new software and hardware, technical concern consultation, etc.
These awesome side-jobs will not only put some extra money in your pocket but add variety into your day. Give them a try and see how you like being a working mom.
