You'd have to be living under a rock not to know about the success many moms have had in making money blogging. That's the good news. The bad news is that the market for any blog, mom-related or not, is crowded. Successful blogging requires picking a niche and focusing on reaching the target market for that topic. There are many ways to make money from blogging, including affiliate marketing, advertising (i.e., Adsense), creating and selling information products and more.
Not everything is just a Google search away. Media organizations hire fact checkers to make sure that items in stories are accurate and that sources quoted really exist. Other organizations need people to find statistics and other data for presentations and reports. There are plenty of opportunities online to get started researching at home. Just be prepared to get into some really esoteric topics that will take you way beyond Wikipedia.

If so, you might want to consider running your own online thrift shop. Whether you focus on fashion especially, another category of product, or prefer to amass collections of interesting items from all over the internet (but especially eBay!), there’s always a strong demand for items with a story. Give your store a compelling, memorable identity, and it will be seen as much more than a simple consignment store.

“I asked my 8 year old son and 10 year old daughter, who have had me working from home since their toddler years, how they would like to encourage other moms. Their response was, ‘Stick to what you're doing.  Do what is healthy for you and your kids.’ As I began typing, I left out the ‘you’ part. My son immediately said, ‘That's important. You have to remind the moms to do what's best for them, too.’  He's right. We are often so worried about everyone else, that we forget to take care of ourselves. Also, don't forget when you become successful, that it's not always about you. It's about the platform you've been given to encourage and help others."


Some of the companies on this list are those you’ll recognize. Dell, still one of the largest PC vendors in the world, regularly hires project managers, business analysts and systems engineers for remote work. Salesforce, which came in at #3 on Forbes’ list of the world’s most innovative companies this year, hires telecommuting account executives, product designers and even upper management positions like regional vice presidents. Xerox, Adobe, SAP and American Express also make the list with their own distinct sets of work from home and remote work agreements.

Knowing your family’s history and past can be more than just an idle curiosity. It can help with determining health risks, establishing a sense of family pride or helping you find a missing person.

For more on how you use your love for family history as a business, check out the Association of Professional Genealogists website.

They are generally solopreneurs who offer their services to small businesses who need help with a given range of tasks. Some people might argue that being a virtual assistant isn't really running a business. But somebody like Gina Horkey can prove that's simply not true, and she has a booming business to back her claims up. She's also seen as the “go to” person for a step-by-step guide to running your own VA business.


Cash 4 Books is an online business where you can sell new and used books. Grab your books and head to the website; here you’ll be able to enter each book’s ISBN, which is a 10 or 13 digit number that can be found on the back cover or inside the front cover of almost all books. Once you have entered each code, you’ll receive a quote for each book. Next, send your books in with a pre-paid shipping label. Once they receive your books, you’ll be paid either via check or PayPal.

If you're a person who loves leaving customer reviews on sites like Amazon, stop doing it for free. Word-of-mouth advertising is still a huge lead generator for many companies, and a lot of businesses are willing to share a portion of their profits with persuasive individuals who will promote their products to the public. If you have a personal website with a large following, this might be easier to accomplish (PR reps are always seeking out brand advocates they can send free samples to). Smart Passive Income breaks down three types of affiliate marketing and explains which one is most profitable.
Using your skills for profit is a common trend with all of the best side business ideas. If you're an expert at something, there's likely an audience of people online who would be willing to pay to become an expert in your field—just like you. If you want to take your skills and turn them into an online course that teaches others how to get the same results you've achieved in your life, career, or business, start with How to Create an Awesome Online Course on Udemy, where instructor Miguel Hernandez covers how he makes over $90,000/yr teaching online. You'll learn from more than 8 hours of video instruction.
Another site worth checking out is BookScouter, which will check the selling price on 55 different vendors. The list will include the offer price, how they pay (Paypal, check, etc.) as well as whether they pay for shipping and under what terms. If you have a lot of books to sell, they can search up to 3000 ISBNs in a single request if you upgrade to BookScouter Pro. There is also historical prices too in case you want to review trends.
"Find the balance and find it early! My kids are in school from 9am to 3:30pm. I work 10am to 3pm and try only to work weekends when necessary. So I've got time to get dinner going and pick them up at school without my career choice affecting them too much. I also include them in as much as I can – you'll find my 5 and 7-year-olds stamping hands at the door at my craft shows, or running appetizers at my open houses."

Ghostwriting pays pretty well, and if you're talented at researching and creating great content within a certain subject domain, you can quickly build a roster of high-paying clientele with this business idea. Ghostwriters like Jeff Haden have created very lucrative careers for themselves by writing for business executives and CEO's—and Jeff also started his ghostwriting career as a side business idea outside of his full-time job as a factory manager. Listen to his interview with me on The Side Hustle Project (podcast) right here.

There are a ton of great websites that making freelancing extremely easy. They help you get your services out there and help you find clients.My personal favorite site is Fiverr. I have built many websites for clients using Fiverr. You are able to list a ton of different services, such as the ones listed above. You can offer your services for as little as $5 and up to thousands of dollars. The more you sell and the more reviews you get the higher the level seller you become. The higher your level the more options you have when listing your services.

Fashion, style, and grooming continue to be a lucrative side business idea that can be done in your hours outside of work. If you know how to mend clothes, then you have a growing market of budget-conscious and/or personalization-obsessed customers. Entrepreneur says you need around two thousand dollars to start a decent side business idea in this niche but there’s no harm in starting smaller and growing from there, as long as you can make magic with needle and thread.
But if you get the green light to do it, starting a catering service is a relatively low-overhead way to create a new business. It’s a lot of work, but if you enjoy cooking, it could turn into a lucrative and fulfilling career. To get started with minimal investment, you could first cook in your customers’ homes and use their dishes. Also, a narrow specialization on a particular type of cuisine or event may help you attract clientele as you work develop a strong customer base.

Online business is how I’ve made a living since 2003 and what has helped me retire early.  I make over $40,000 a month through my blog. You can create your own blog here with my easy 15-minute step-by-step tutorial.  You can start a blog for as little as $2.95 a month (less than a cup of coffee!).  Create a blog and leverage it into affiliate sales or product endorsement deals. Consider topics like:

I've discovered a way you could earn an extra $2,700 per year with Swagbucks, just by watching videos online. The catch? The videos have ads. You can earn rewards (Swagbucks) for things you are already doing. Reward sites can be hit or miss, with many feeling like scams. Don’t worry — Swagbucks is legitimate and if you’re willing to put in some time, you can earn Amazon gift cards, Walmart gift cards and other top retailers. I’ve personally got my eye on this cheap drone on Amazon that’s under $50, I should be able to get it just by doing another week of Swagbucks grindin’.

If that approach doesn't interest you then head over to Google Trends and look for a trending topic. Ideally this will be something you find interesting, but that's not an absolute requirement here. Then create a piece of content on that same topic, sign up for a free WordPress account and post it there. Voila – you now have one “clip” for your writing portfolio.
This may be the most sound advice any homeowner can hear. Even if you recently refinanced, it might be worth looking into another quote as they take only a few minutes to check. LendingTree could help you refinance your mortgage at a significantly lower interest rate – Let’s say your interest rate decreased by 1%, you can save more than $100 a month on a $200,000 mortgage. That comes out to $1,200 in extra cash for you at the end of the year and $6,000 every 5 years!
Almost everyone has a few boxes of books stashed away in the house somewhere. Why not make a business out of them? In order to gain customers--especially repeat customers--you will need to have some regular shop hours. Make your shop known for something-a specific category (or two) of books, having some first editions for sale, all paperbacks a dollar and all hardcovers two bucks, and/or a swap program. Maps, illustrations, postcards, greeting cards and magazines are good sidelines to include in your shop.
I see a comment made by Stella including some freelance sites. This does work. I use oDesk and it’s been a big help in bringing in a little extra money. I also agree with some of the other comments that mention people should think of or view more ideas of making extra money, because it really is possible to make extra money instead of just sitting around moping about not having money to pay the bills or buy something special.
Now that you're a parent things have changed. You're probably back at your old job, paying enormous sums for childcare, and coming home every night to your "second job" of taking care of the kids. Or, you've quit the workforce and are now a full-time parent with no second income and discovering it's difficult financially. Perhaps your kids are getting older and will be heading off to school next year and this is a golden opportunity to start your own business.
Web design combines the technical know-how of creating a functioning website with the creative requirements of making that site look good and draw in visitors. With the tools available today, almost anyone can create a template-based website, but it takes that special something to make it successful. If you want to challenge yourself in a fairly competitive industry, this might just be the business for you.
Once you’ve established yourself in any number of freelance verticals online, spending your time focusing just on doing inside sales (booking freelance contracts with high-value clients) and then subcontracting your work out to other freelancers can help significantly grow your client list, and revenue generating possibilities with this business idea.
Take a look at your local market: If there’s a demand for weddings, birthdays, corporate events, and fundraisers, but few venues to host those events, seize the opportunity and start an event space yourself. You could offer planning services along with the venue, or partner up with another local event-planning business to become the ultimate party-planning team.

If this is the first time you are hearing about this, though, then we actually do not recommend trying it. The average skill level of players on the Internet has improved so much over the past few years that it’s virtually guaranteed that a new player will lose money over the medium to long-term. But hey, Ben made upwards of 6 figures playing online in poker in college, so we had to list it. 🙂

Whether you’ve graduated from cosmetology school, developed a following for your makeup tutorials on YouTube, or you’re your friends’ go-to for hair and makeup recommendations, becoming a freelance hair or makeup artist is a logical next step. Before you set up a brick-and-mortar salon, or carve out a space in your own home, get started by signing up as a professional stylist for an on-demand beauty app, so you and your tools will travel right to your clients’ homes. Working on the weekends or evenings is the perfect way to slowly transition out of a 9-5 job and build up a loyal client base.


There is a demand for finding reliable home improvement contractors, and this is a business opportunity you can address. You can start a home-based contractor referral service that connects homeowners with prescreened, reliable home improvement professionals like painters, plumbers, carpenters and electricians. Contractors will then pay you a prenegotiated commission on work secured and you can keep your service free for the homeowners.
There are several ways to make money from your car such as taxiing people, renting your car, or advertising businesses. Run the numbers before using your car to make money, especially if you're driving more than usual because it might cost more than you earn to use your car as a money-maker. Factor in depreciation, wear and tear, and gas expenses when you decide if driving is a cost-effective way to make extra money. 
"It's hard for me to believe it was five years ago that Lucy, my then toddler, and I were pushing rolls of fabric across our living and dining room floor for our first round of wraps. Those were some crazy days with a toddler, a newborn, and a husband in school full-time as Solly Baby began, but motherhood taught me that our capacity is far greater than most of us believe. I learned to do more with 15 minutes than I could previously do with 2 hours. Not only that, there's something about raising children that has made me acutely aware of how fleeting time is. It put the fire under me to go after what I wanted. Not only for myself, but also to show them what's possible." 
This is slightly different than eBay Arbitrage. Find a distributor that will sell to you at their discounted prices. List these items online. Buy and ship to your heart's content. Basically, you become a reseller of computers and other hardware. Another thought here is to sell computer parts. Can you find a part that seems to be in demand? If you can supply the demand, you may just have yourself a part-time business.
I’m not sure why you brought up the things you did. Your son in college has nothing to do with your present situation. Your dad passing shouldn’t mean anything in your success and survival. Your child at home is your singular issue. 4 years unemployed is impossible unless you’re living on an island. You worked your entire life? That’s like 20 years or so only, you quite possibly have another 40+ years left. You’re the one who is going to have to decide that the excuses are over and you need to either apply to jobs or start a business. Or enjoy the time with your child at home while on public assistance. But stay sharp and be ready! YOU ARE AN AMAZING WOMAN WHO IS CAPABLE OF ANYTHING YOU PUT YOUR MIND TO!

“I was plagued all day long while working by the thought that I was a terrible mom for sending my firstborn to childcare too soon. One Saturday during a playdate, I overheard my daughter talking to her friend, suggesting that they try playing a new game. She asked, “Do you wanna play ‘Let’s Go To The UPS Store?” and then waved her friend over to get into her imaginary car. It was my working mom moment of revelation: my daughter was not only unaffected by my being a working woman, but she was encouraging her friends to join her on her own imaginary work day. Guilt? Gone.”

"Find the balance and find it early! My kids are in school from 9am to 3:30pm. I work 10am to 3pm and try only to work weekends when necessary. So I've got time to get dinner going and pick them up at school without my career choice affecting them too much. I also include them in as much as I can – you'll find my 5 and 7-year-olds stamping hands at the door at my craft shows, or running appetizers at my open houses."
And while you’re getting to know your business community online, keep an eye out for information on offline opportunities as well. Find ways to get involved in your industry’s local community. Are there advertisements for networking events or industry conferences? Craft fairs, trade shows, and even just chatting with people at your town’s supply stores can be excellent opportunities for promoting your business.

A lot of child sitters simply go rogue, but if you’re operating a home child care business out of your apartment, this is not recommended. As stated on New York State’s Office of Children and Family Services website, “Any day care program planning to serve three or more children for more than three hours a day on a regular basis must obtain a license or registration certificate. To obtain this certificate, the applicant must show that the day care program meets requirements that the state has established to help ensure the health and safety of children in care.” Bear in mind that to qualify, you’ll need to provide evidence that both you and your home are fit to host children on a daily basis. Among the many requirements, this means getting fingerprinted (for details visit the Division of Child Care Services website). While the process may sound daunting, New York State offers services in English and Spanish to help child care providers navigate the registration process, a free online orientation course, and in some cases, financial incentives.
You’ve probably noticed an exponential increase in the number of green juices, kale smoothies, and gluten-free everything on cafe and restaurant menus around your town. That’s because the health, wellness, and personal care spaces are rapidly gaining in popularity, and money: As of 2016, the wellness industry was worth $3.72 trillion and grew by 10.6% from 2013 to 2015, with no signs of slowing down.

Even if it's a tiny corner of your dining room, you need a physical space devoted to work. "I turned a spare bedroom into my office, and it's set up just like any professional space would be," says Angela Halloran, 35, a web designer (boutiquewebdesigns.com) who lives in Noblesville, Indiana. "At the end of each work day, I close the office door and don't open it again until the next morning."

Being able to work with portable equipment, or learn a new kitchen set up quickly will help. Offering a few choice meals and learning to make them efficiently can save time and give you a starting point for pricing. Creating an a la carte menu and a timetable for ordering can also provide a way to make the business stay time and cost effective for you.
In the U.S today, more than 84% of households own at least one computer. 74% of these homes are connected to the internet where they can get computer viruses and other forms of malware. These are all potential customers. Provided you can offer these people a convenient and trustworthy service, there is a good chance that you can make a great deal of money running a computer repair service company.
Make sure you are buying items that are highly sellable, meaning that you there is a large market so you won’t have to wait years to find a buyer. And be disciplined enough only to buy items that allow you plenty of markup for resale. Specialization, or at least having most of your products fit your specialization, is highly likely to increase your chances of success.
