After punching a time clock or logging in based on my work schedule for over fifteen years, the one thing I wanted when I started working from home was a flexible schedule so that I can spend more time with my family. You see, I missed out on my kids programs, plays, and competitions because I was always at work and I’ll never get that time back. Sure I was making money but at the same time I missed out on the memories and having that “proud parent” feeling we get when we watch our kids perform.
When I talk to other moms who want to work from home, the flexibility to be available for their kids seems to be the common factor. And I don’t blame them for wanting to have the best of both worlds – being a mom and a mom who works. There’s nothing wrong with that and now thanks to technology, mom’s are able to make it happen considering only 10 years ago there were a limited number of jobs we can do from home.
For the most part, the moms I talk to don’t want to commit to a job that requires them to work a certain number of hours a week because they don’t want it to interfere with their home life. But they would like a side hustle to make extra money to help pay bills, add to their savings or just to have cash on hand in case of an emergency.
When you think about it, there are all kinds of side hustle opportunities moms can do from home like baking, start a gift wrapping business, you can even start a mom blog but those require long-term commitments and some experience in the field like a know-how to bake from scratch.
There is a variety of typing jobs available. From entry level jobs like data entry that pays you based on typing speed to typing jobs that require some experience and purchasing equipment like transcription. The good news is – there is something for everyone with all levels of experience.
One side hustle I like to recommend is typing jobs. Typing jobs gives moms – or anyone for that matter – the flexibility to work when and how long they want to work.
Now, if you do a quick search online for typing jobs, you’ll get a ton of resources. I did my homework and found some sites required you sign up for a monthly membership in order to get access to the jobs and others exagerrated their base pay claiming you can earn up to $1200 per completed assignment.
Here is a list of websites that offer different typing jobs you can do from home. Please be sure to read through their requirements to be sure it’s the perfect side hustle for you.
If you need to brush up on your typing skills head on over to TypingTest.com to work on your typing speed and accuracy. They also offer a free typing trainer keyboarding course that’s designed to help double your typing speed.
