5 Ways Moms Can Make Money From Home With Kids In The House

Reader Interactions


  1. Hey Cori,
    I have to say that I have to commend you and other mothers for making money at home. I know this can be very challenging!

    But these are some great ideas. I really like the virtual assistant option since many implement social media which they can leverage to help other businesses grow and make money from it at the same time. You can’t be that, especially if you enjoy being on Social Media.

    Great share Cori! Have a great weekend!

    • Hi Sherman,

      Oh yeah, working from home and with kids in the house is definitely a challenge. As I’m typing this comment my grandsons are in my office watching TV and asking me a million questions. 🙂

      I agree, a Virtual Assistant would make a great gig for moms and VA’s are quite popular with bloggers nowadays – I know I could use one, hehe.

      Thanks for coming by to read this post and for your comment. I’m sorry it took so long to reply. Been a crazy couple of weeks over here.

      Take care!


  2. Hey Cori,

    It’s hard to manage the work along with the kids. For moms, it’s important to have a work they can do from their home.

    Freelance writing is a better option. There are many websites which are looking for Virtual Assistants.

    You always bring something amazing.
    Thanks for sharing with us.

    • Hi Ravi,

      Working with kids around can be challenging. My 2-year old grandson loves to be in my room while I’m working. Every now and then he’ll come up to me with one of his toys and asks me to play. So I’m clicking away with one hand and playing with an action figure with the other, lol.

      Funny thing is, I wouldn’t change it for the world. I get to be home to do what I love to do and be with my family.

      I think a Virtual Assistant or freelance business is the way to go, too. There is more freedom as far as scheduling goes.

      Thank you for your kind words Ravi! I hope you’re having a great week.

      Take care!

  3. Great ideas! Freelance writing is great for making an income if you’re a really good writer. I would not use services like Fiverr for writing jobs, because this doesn’t pay very well. Upwork and I need articles seem to be ok.

    • Thanks Daisy. I agree with you – freelance writing can be a great business. I have been playing around with the idea myself but with all the typing I do on this blog, carpal tunnel is starting to set in. 🙂

      I wouldn’t pick up freelance writing gigs on Fiverr either. It’s a great platform to make extra money, just not writing.

      Good luck to you Daisy. Have a great rest of the week!


  4. Hi Cori,

    I just had a flash back of when my daughter was young and I was working from home. Back then (a few decades ago) I was a single mom that needed to make money fast. So I invested in crystals…and re-sold them at three times the price.

    From that….it was one business after another and now I’m here working from my computer. 🙂


    • Hi Donna,

      Yeah, I think all WAHMs had a flashback here, hehe. I’m starting all over again with my grandsons but I’m glad I can work from home to help out my daughter. I don’t want my grandsons in a daycare – they’re too rambunctious. 🙂

      We certainly have it made, right? Have a great rest of the week Donna!


  5. Hi Cori, This is really an inspirational post. Many of the stay at home moms think of ways to contribute to the family. This article should help them decide to start a work from home career and finding out which one is right for them. I would like to share it along with my social channels. Thanks for this great post.

  6. Hi Cori,

    A much-needed post for those who have kids in the house! Cannot forget our own time, and that was the very reason I left my full-time job, so I could be with the kids at home also. That is when freelance writing happened, and then there was no looking back.

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week ahead 🙂

  7. I love this guide! I love doing reviews and surveys for various companies and products. I surprisingly made a decent side income from it in 2015!

  8. Great ideas! I’ve been working for myself mostly from home (have a temp office for meetings as needed) for 12+ years now and I can’t see ever going back to an office working for someone else. So rewarding! Hopefully your post inspires others to take the leap!

  9. Loove the info you provided on starting a blog! I know many moms who would love to start a blog but have no idea how to actually make it work for them as far as a paying gig! Great read.

  10. These are great ideas, I love that you added links to help point in the right direction. I don’t have kids but I can imagine If I did this would be a great article to find.
