Being a mom is a full-time occupation. Your kids demand your attention 24 hours a day, 7 days per week. For many at-home moms, the idea of going to a job every day is almost impossible to consider. Where would they fit in the time? How would they manage the daycare bill? Yet when you need a little extra, one option is to find a side job you can do at home. Here are some great ways to make a little extra income, even while managing the demands of a busy home. All of these jobs require no inventory so you can easily fit them into apartment living.
1. Freelance Writing
Freelance writing is great because all it requires is basic grammar skills and a computer with Internet access. Today, companies need to have fresh content on their blogs to drive search engine traffic. They also need to post guest blogs on other people’s sites to drive more traffic to their own sites. Many will pay freelance writers to write this content on their behalf.
2. Work as a Virtual Assistant
A virtual assistant manages the email and accounting for busy business owners. Again, this is a job that requires little more than a computer and some room to organize paperwork. However, you do need to be a fairly organized person for this to be the right career path, as other people will be relying on you to keep them organized and on top of things. A virtual assistant’s day-to-day work can be quite varied depending on her clients, but it can be quite a fulfilling career path.
3. Teach English
Surprisingly, you don’t have to have an education degree for this work-from-home job. There is a growing need for native English speakers to teach children in China, and the beauty of the Internet allows this to work. The pay for this job is pretty high too. As long as you do not have a strong accent and carry a bachelor’s degree, no matter the subject field, you may be able to get this job.
Surprisingly, there are a number of successfully people who have very poor writing skills. If you have an eye for detail and good grammar skills, you can actually earn income as a proofreader.
5. Social Media Marketing
Many at-home moms are experts at social media, so why not turn that into income? Companies need regular posts in order to be successful online, but often lack the time to make those posts. Make them on behalf of companies, and enjoy an income from your work.
Even in an luxury apartment, you can work from home. Forget home-parties and inventory based businesses. If you have a computer, you can do a side job that brings in some extra money for your family.
