If, like me, you stay home to take care of your baby for a while, your family may find it useful to earn extra income and think about possible jobs for mothers. Not all families can live on a single salary for more adjustments they make, or the changes take away from your comfort in the day today. So today I am going to share 13 JOBS FOR PAID MOMS.


After the trance of the first months in which the baby will not leave you time for anything, you may consider working part-time for someone else or doing something at home with which you can generate a guaranteed income. What I want to talk to you about today is jobs from home that make you money and maybe the door to your future work or business.

Work for Mothers From Home

You may not be ready at the moment to start a full-fledged business with all the effort and dedication it entails, but you can spend a few hours a week doing some work for others that will bring you some money. If it’s something you like and do well, over time, it may become more than just odd jobs.


For now, start by analyzing your situation and seeing what is feasible. The most important points to keep in mind are:

  • Here your partner’s schedule plays a fundamental role so that you can complement each other.
  • What do you know about how to do well? If you like it, even better.
  • If you have to invest more than you are going to earn, better, go for a walk, go swimming or to the library in that precious time.
  • When the financial situation of the home is terrible, calculate exactly how much you need to earn a minimum per month. If you are not going to get enough with your first option, have a second and third thought.

I have many friends who told me that they had nothing exciting to offer, but at the same time, they presented jobs that they would like someone they trust to do. The problem if you don’t live in a big city or town is that you don’t find many of these services. Companies will not be interested in acquiring a premise if they are going to have little income, as is logical. That’s where small or micro-entrepreneurs like you (and like me) come in.

If you want to earn money working from home, there are a lot of things that you can surely do. But, as I say above, you have to be realistic, assess your skills, and calculate VERY WELL the time you have very well to know if it is feasible. Wanting is not enough.

When I considered making some money from home, I started by making a list of jobs I could do from home. It is a varied list in which you will surely find some idea that can help you decide what you are going to do.
