What jobs can I do from home on my own time?

Have you heard the phrase “Necessity is the mother of invention”?

That is the truest about stay at home moms. Stay at home moms figure out how to get it done.

I have seen so many friends rise above difficult circumstances by earning income at home. Whether it is a supplemental part-time income, or a full-time income, I have seen first-hand how it is possible to earn a living at home.

I have always had a full-time employer. But, even with a full-time job, I love finding ways bring in a supplemental income. I have had so many part-time SAHM jobs throughout the years that I can conduct from home. I can’t wait to share my favorite money-making options that work around the flexibility of your own work schedule.

(If you have any experience selling on Amazon, with data entry jobs, with Uber, or as a customer service representative, let me know! I’d love to pick your brain!)

How can you find more time?

I won’t be one of those annoying people. I won’t tell you why every person needs to be a morning person, or that it is the only way to be a good mom. Those are lies, people.

But, I have found that waking up early really pays off, so here are my tips for waking up EARLY.

The key to waking up early is to identify your goals and make them measurable.

If you just say “I want more time to workout,” you will lay in bed at 5 AM and talk yourself out of it.

If you say “I want to take a walk outside, see the sunrise, and have a cup of coffee before my kids wake up at 6 AM,” then you have a measurable goal that has to happen at a certain hour.

For me, I wanted to work 2 hours before my kids woke up. To make this happen, I would need to start by 5:30 or 6 AM. There are no alternatives. That’s it.

If you are considering making the 5 AM switch, I encourage you to make a goal that can only be accomplished by you during the morning hour. Leap for the moon.

Your morning might include:

  • a workout
  • time to read a book.
  • hours to write or blog
  • taking a walk outside
  • time to schedule your week and catch up on emails

Whatever your goal is, make it specific enough to get you out of bed.

Second, make your morning the highlight of your day.

I mentioned earlier that I make sure my cup of coffee is brewing at 5:05. This is non-negotiable. Like most people on the planet, coffee keeps me going.

If you don’t have a coffee pot that is programmable, and that you can set on a timer the night before, you have to get one. It is ideal for making your coffee the night before.

This is a huge incentive I have to get out of bed. If I wake up too late, I get cold coffee. And cold coffee is the WORST.

Try it out! It works!

Be an online tutor

I have tutored with Wyzant for years. Wyzant is an easy way to match your skills with students that need online tutoring in your area. I have tutored English, Spanish, and other subjects – and have always found awesome students in my zip code.

Just fill out a profile, add your qualifications, take a few quizzes, offer what lessons you teach, and you will be matched up with potential students in your area. I have always found excellent students – and the money is really good. I totally recommend for how to make money as a stay at home mom for a little extra cash!
