Earlier this month I shared 9 easy ways moms can make money from home this summer and still have time for activities with the kids. Some of the jobs I mentioned included customer service jobs. But when you see “a quiet, dedidated work space” in the job listing requirements and you have rambunctious kids (like my grandsons) in the background you have to cross out those kinds of jobs off the list of jobs you can do from home.
It’s hard to hold down a traditional work-from-home job that requires you to be in front of a computer for a certain number of hours. And if you’ve got kiddos in the house, you know what I mean when I say we go by the kid’s schedule.
But don’t let that stop you from wanting to make money from home. There are still other jobs you can do. In fact, there are plenty of websites that offer paid gigs that you can from home.
What I like about doing gigs like this is, there is not requirement to work a certain number of hours, there is no boss to report to and the best part about it is you can work whenever you have free time. In my case it’s when Finding Nemo and Toy Story are playing. They are my grandsons’ favorite movies right now and when either one of those movies is on, they’re in it from start to finish and that gives grandma spare time to work.
The websites I’m about to share with you don’t require you to have special equipment and you don’t have to be on the phone with customers so the kids can carry on with the ruckus in the background while you work. The only thing you will need is concentration.
