Work at Home: Sites to Find Work at Home Mom Jobs #WorkAtHome

I used to dream of being a stay at home mom. Or a work at home mom. I did not care which one, I just knew I could make a bigger difference in my kids’ lives than in corporate America.

I get regular emails, blog comments, Facebook messages, etc., from other moms wanting to know how they can work from home. It makes me smile.

And when I tell you it is more of a reality than you think, I am serious.

My blogging buddy Kelli, from 3 Boys and a Dog, has partnered up with Susan, from 5 Minutes for Mom, as they passionately find work at home mom solutions.

One thing I often tell moms is to remember that a work at home job does not have to be a computer job. Here are my tips.

Work at Home Mom Job Ideas

Think outside the box. What is something that brings value to other people’s lives?

Start a laundry service from home, make freezer meals at home for busy families, etc. Get your client list going and spread by word of mouth and by blogging about it and with social media like Facebook and Instagram. Start a laundry tip blog that marries with your local laundry service, for example.

As you hear other moms talk about what their struggles are, ask yourself how you could provide something that is a solution for that struggle. Most moms struggle with the same things. Use your strengths as a solution and bring income in for your family at the same time.   I know a single mom who ran errands for parents and businesses. It was her full time income to support her and her son.

If you are a blogger, use that skill to be a virtual assistant for other bloggers. Obviously you know the ins and outs of blogging. I know moms who work 30+ hours a week piling up 5 hours here and there to be virtual assistants for bloggers.

Updated: I almost forgot all about this tip! If you currently work outside of the home go to your boss and propose that you telecommute.   You could even go into the office once a week, maybe- if that is something you are willing to do. This really is a sign of the times and people are working from home every day.   It saves the company valuable office space and usually equipment as well. Besides, if they are not willing, you can easily find enough work from home that will compensate the costs of daycare/childcare even if you are piece-milling the work from multiple clients.

    Great post and video. It IS easier to just have a job and not have to make sure you have enough money coming in, but there is far more freedom and potential income working for yourself!

    I love that you’re doing this work and home strategy hour. There are so many – limitless really – ways to make money independently. Besides social media and computer work, think about what people with jobs don’t have time to do. That can be anything from sewing, laundry, canning or dehydrating food, baking, babysitting, pet grooming, etc.

    Give some thought to whether you want to have to go out and make deliveries or provide services, or you want to only take in work where you are, or you only want to do something at home and provide the fruits of your labor online, via shipping, or by having them come to your house.

    Thank you for the video and tips.
