Stay at Home Mom Jobs

One of the biggest questions I get as a stay-at-home-mom (SAHM) is, “What do you do all day and how do you make money?”

I am a Registered Nurse and I’ve worked at several hospitals over the years.

Eventually, I knew I wanted to stay home and be available to my three kids for whatever they need.

Additionally, I wanted to help out with my family’s financial obligations so I started researching viable options for working from home.

Fortunately, there are lots of great remote jobs for stay at home moms to make money from home.

Keep reading for some excellent SAHM options that can help you bring in the bacon.



1. The #1 Easiest way I’ve found to Make Extra Cash

A friend told me about a way I could sell my old books on Amazon and make money to buy new ones. 

I was completely intrigued! 

I went to the website she gave me, set-up my free Amazon seller account, and got started right away.

On my very first day, I made a profit of $50.00.

That may not sound like a lot to some people, but it can definitely add up quickly!

Since then I’ve done my research, sold the books, and know the money making process couldn’t be any easier. 

Plus, I’ve found that selling certain types of books at specific times can be extremely profitable.

And, most people can spend just a few hours per week on this and reach their personal financial goals.

Here is the free training that shows you how it works.

4. In-home Daycare

I have several friends who provide in-home daycare services.

They really seem to enjoy it and they get to stay at home with their children.

Also, you have to get a state certification before you keep any children in your home, so make sure you do your research and find out all of the necessary requirements.

The median suggested pay rate to charge per hour in Georgia for child care is $15.50 per hour.

You can go to’s babysitting rates to get an estimate for your location.

5. Become a Virtual Assistant

I am hearing a lot lately from people who use Virtual Assistants (VA) and also people who teach you to become a VA.

Some companies will wire a VA to help them manage their online administrative tasks.

This is a great work from home option for SAHMs that need a flexible schedule.

Virtual Assistant responsibilities can include:

  • Travel arrangements

  • Management of social media

  • Work-calendar management

  • Preparing presentations

  • Email marketing and correspondence

  • Transcribing conference calls

  • Miscellaneous customer service oriented tasks


You can become a virtual assistant by taking a training class to teach you all the VA skills and everything else you need to know to get started as a VA.
