4 Flexible Jobs that are Ideal for Stay-at-Home Moms

Being a mom who chooses to homeschool my three kids, I thought I’d compile some info regarding other flexible jobs that are absolutely perfect for stay-at-home moms. And while none of them will be a perfect fit for some women, others will totally gain inspiration from one or some of the following job prospects.

Dog Watching

If you’re a pet lover who likes to walk and is looking to earn some extra cash, dog watching is something that you should consider getting into. Many people who work long hours every day don’t have the time to take their beloved pets for a lengthy walk in the afternoon and are more than happy to pay someone else to do it for them. Why shouldn’t that ‘someone’ be you? A great way of exercising and getting you and your little ones out of the house for some fresh air everyday, dog watching/walking can be quite lucrative when the right approach is taken.[egg id=”0″]

Voice Over Artist

You may be of the opinion that candidates need a lot of experience to get into voice over artistry, but you’d be very wrong. What can be started out as a small venture that leads to a bigger business, voice over artistry is something that many stay-at-home moms are reaping the benefits of. To get up and running and get your name out there, begin by advertising your skill on platforms such as freelance sites and local newspapers. Once you have a few jobs under your belt, you’ll start to see your portfolio and your bank balance grow.

Running Errands

If you’re the type of person that is ok with doing other people’s everyday tasks, running errands could earn you a lot of extra cash. Getting into this line of business could mean that one day you’ll be doing someone’s grocery shopping for them while another day you could be organizing a birthday party for one of your clients. If this isn’t a problem for you and you, feel that you could benefit from the extra money, inform people of your services by signing up with suitable freelance sites and advertising your services in local newspapers.


Have you got a unique talent or learned skill that you think others could benefit from? If you’re a stay-at-home mom who used to be a teacher, why not cash in your knowledge and expertise by holding tutoring sessions for students in your spare time? Arrange the lessons for a time that will not cause any disruption to the routine that you’ve already got in place for you and your kids. Even if you don’t have a background in teaching, I’m sure there’s something that you can share that will benefit you and others.


The possibilities for earning some extra money while looking after the needs of your little ones at home are truly endless. As well as the four that are mentioned above, moms are venturing into other areas such as babysitting, E-commerce, blogging and personal styling to make some cash and improve their productivity levels.


As you’ll have seen from the above, you can literally make money while taking your precious baby for a walk – are you ready to find something that you think you’ll enjoy doing from home?

  1. I think being a review blogger is quite a good relaxing job for mom-at-home provided that one is good at writing and taking photos.

    • Believe it or not, it’s really not as relaxing and easy as it may seem. There is a lot of behind the scenes action that takes place and it is a full time job.
      As always, thank you for stopping by and commenting. I hope to see you again soon.

  2. I checked into Task Rabbit, but they aren’t in my area yet. I wouldn’t mind doing small errands or small tasks for someone. Sounds easier than blogging… and probably more profitable.
