Say goodbye to the daily commute & daycare bills with these WORK-FROM-HOME JOBS PERFECT FOR SUPER MOMS…
Every mom knows that taking care of your kid is a full-time job in itself, so for many, the idea of adding another job into the mix – as well as hectic daily commutes, extortionate daycare bills, and more paperwork *shudder* – seems like more of a joke than a serious reality.
That being said, for many families, having two sources of income can take a lot of the strain off your finances.
Plus, having a job allows you to be creative, connect with other adults, and split the division of labour within your household more equally.

2. Become a proofreader
Having an eagle eye for spelling errors can be a preeeeetty profitable business!
If you’re great at spotting grammatical errors, spelling mistakes, and have meticulous attention to detail, this could be a really fantastic work-at-home job to look into.
Proofreaders will essentially take a finished manuscript and help writers and editors fine-comb the text for errors. Professional proofreaders can charge up to $95 an hour – a rate that’s going to be pretty hard to beat!
One of the best examples of making a successful remote career from proofreading is Caitlin from Proofread Anywhere. Caitlin had been a proofreader since 2007, and in 2014 decided to put all her knowledge into helping others become a professional proofreader.
Years on, and over 4,000 students later, Proofread Anywhere is a best-selling course and one of the best ways of building a successful proofreading business from scratch.
To find out more about Caitlin and her course, you sign up to her free workshop which is absolutely packed with information to help you figure out if proofreading is right for you.

3. Virtual Assistant
Becoming a virtual assistant was one of the very first work from home jobs I ever took on and is a great way to earn money online from home. A virtual assistant can wear many different hats – which definitely keeps it interesting – and is perfect if you like the idea of being apart of a team and connecting with other adults.
If this is something you’re interested in finding out more about, I would really recommend checking out Gina Horkey’s Horkey Handbook. She is the QUEEN of the virtual assistant biz, building a 6-figure business as a stay-at-home-mom within 6 months of setting up her business.
Now, she helps others do the same. Check out her best-selling course, 30-days to Virtual Assistant Success, and get your hands on her free guide to 150+ (told you it was a lot of hats!) VA services you could offer.

4. Freelance Writer
Before I started making enough money blogging to focus on that full-time, I made a big chunk of my income through freelance writing.
It’s a competitive industry, but another remote job that lets you be creative, connect with different people all over the world, and there are a lot of other niches you could specialize in.
This is one of the most perfect stay-at-home mom jobs perfect you can do it completely remotely – all you need is a laptop and an internet connection. So if you’re looking for a job you can do while your baby is down for a nap or in the evenings in front of the TV, this is the one for you!

These days, investing in a good camera doesn’t have to break your bank. You can find a great quality camera from $500, and if you have a knack for angles and lighting, you could try your hand at making money as a photographer!
You should know, however, that since everyone and their mother owns a smartphone with a good quality camera these days, it is getting harder and harder to make money as a photographer unless you’re capturing some really special sights.
6. Start an Amazon Store
Have you heard of fulfilment by Amazon before? Basically, you start up a store of your own, but all your stock is stored by Amazon, and it is then packaged, labelled, and posted by Amazon directly – all you have to worry about is marketing your store and keeping your stock topped up!
This is a great stay at home mom job, and can be extremely lucrative – find out how Jessica from The Selling Family turned her Amazon FBA side hustle into a 6-figure business.
7. Create Your Own Etsy Shop
Etsy used to be the online shop where you could only buy quirky crafts, and while there is still very much a market for knitted, crocheted, and hand-crafted goods, that’s not your only option.
You could start your own Etsy shop and sell anything that gets your creativity flowing, from knitted hats to digital downloads (for example, scavenger hunts and quizzes are massively popular on Etsy!). Check out this list of things you can make and sell from home for some legitimate home business ideas!
Tutoring is an extremely versatile option that makes one of the best stay-at-home mom jobs. You could choose to tutor children or adults and do this either from home or online.
You might already have a skill that you are able to offer tutoring for (for example, if you have a degree or are fluent in another language), or you may be able to find a remote employer who will train you on the subject you will be tutoring.
9. Become a Childminder
The online world not for you? Why not consider becoming a childminder, allowing you to take care of your own children while you also watch others. There are many, many parents out there willing to pay good money to someone they can trust with their child, so this can be a great stay at home mom job without needing to get online!
10. Become a Dog Sitter
I know a few people (both in real life and online) who make a steady income from dog sitting. That’s right, dog lovers, people will pay you to hang out with their dog!
Rover.com is one of the leading dog sitting websites around, easily connecting dog owners with dog sitters, so you don’t need to worry about setting up your own website and the business page just yet. Simply get registered and you can start accepting dogs whenever suits you.
I hope this list has given you some inspiration for just how many opportunities there are out there to find stay-at-home mom jobs in 2020.
Pick one, give it a try and work hard, and you never know where it could take you!
