Top Work Home Jobs for Moms
After two years as a stay-at-home Mom, I started missing my career. I didn’t want to commit to a 9-to-5 position because I didn’t want to miss out on too much of my son’s life. I was only prepared to give him over to someone else’s care for a few hours a week at first. And that’s when I started looking at work-from-home options online. #TopWorkHomeJobs
I decided I wanted to write a book but figured I’d need to start building a website and build a tribe of followers first. And that’s how Happy Human Pacifier was born. And then Inspiring Mompreneurs. Blogging became my thing.
Now that I’ve been blogging for 3 years, I’ve learned that I could just as easily have used my writing, editing and proofreading skills to become a freelancer. And I’d have made money a lot quicker if I had.
Freelancing is a fantastic way to carve out a career in the comfort of your own home.
Do you love being home with your children yet you’re also itching to work? Some excellent options for you in the contributed post below.
Top Careers to do from Home
Freelancing has been on the rise for a number of years now, and many people are drawn to the level of freedom and flexibility it gives them. However, before you embark down this particular road, you need to know what sort of career you are going to take on in the first place. So, let’s take a closer look at some of the top career choices out there so that you may be inspired to go down a similar road.
The world of the web is one that continues to dominate our everyday lives, and if you have the right skills in coding and designs, you could find that there is a queue of clients ready to give you their business. The skills are out there and available for anyone to learn as long as you have the patience to learn them. Try to pick an area of specialism to set yourself apart from the crowd.
Writing and Copywriting
All sorts of companies are looking for writers to produce content for them. You may be required to produce marketing materials, write regular blog posts, or ghostwrite an article from the CEO of the company.
Of course, there is a lot of competition in this area, so you will need to have high-quality writing skills if you are going to be able to earn a good living from this. You may be able to earn your cash from one company or you may need to diversify and work for several clients at once.
Once you have some financial skills which are proven to save money for companies, you should have them queuing up to use your services. Otherwise, you could go down another path by learning how to day trade. Of course, you need to be qualified and have the experience to be able to make a sustainable freelance career in this area.
Teaching and Tutoring
You no longer have to be face to face with your students to offer teaching and tutoring to them. You can conduct lessons via Skype or other similar mediums as long as you have the knowledge and skills which people are willing to pay money for. You need to be organised and proactive in your approach so that you can continually attract new students.
Creative or Graphic Design
We live in a world which is dominated by brands, and many of them are looking to stand out. If you have the artistic and technical skills to be able to offer creative or technical design, this could prove to be invaluable and you can certainly make a living as a freelancer in this area.
As you can see, the type of careers that you can do from home as a freelancer are varied. These are just some of the paths which you could consider embarking upon to achieve your dreams of working for yourself.
To this list, I would add:
- Digital Marketing or Social Media Marketing

- Virtual Assistance (Admin)
- Voice Over
