We are always looking for fun ways to help you earn a side income from home. When we discovered Neiybor, a storage service that lets you rent space in your home for a profit (think Airbnb for storage), it sounded like a great option for families who need a bit of extra cash each month but don’t have time to take on another job.
I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Marianne for several years and have loved watching her journey as a work at home mom. Her career working from home as a teacher gives her the flexibility she needs as a mom of two and lets her use her skills as a teacher in a way that is both challenging and rewarding.
I was so excited to have the chance to feature Marianne and chat with her about her life as a work at home mom. When she isn’t working from home as a teacher, you can catch Marianne on her blog where she speaks out about important issues that impact her as a woman and work at home mom.
When you think of direct sales, your first reaction may be, “nope, nope nope!”.
I get it. For a long time, that was my reaction too. I’d been turned off by too many pushy sales pitches and friends I hadn’t talked to in 15 years contacting me just to “catch up” and “oh do you want to buy my products”.
The reality is though, there are so many moms making a GOOD living in direct sales and it is very possible to sell without being obnoxious. One of the fastest growing and most profitable direct sales companies out there right now is SeneGence, the parent company of LipSense.
Whether you are currently working from home or just hoping to create a home-based income, there are definitely some tools out there that can help you out. In the beginning, as a new work at home mom, I tried to do everything myself and I not only wasted a lot of time trying to figure things out that weren’t things I either enjoyed or was good at, I wasted a lot of money. Those both led to some serious work at home mom burnout.
As a work at home mom, you don’t have coworkers (usually) to be part of your team so you are on your own. You have to be smart about your time and the resources you use to help you.
As a mom who has worked at home for almost 13 years now, I’ve put together some of my favorite resources for work at home moms for you. These will help you have a simpler, happier work day and avoid work at home mom burnout.
Have you been thinking about starting a blog? If you have, you may be a bit overwhelmed by everything that is involved in getting a new blog set up.
The good news is it’s not quite as overwhelming as it seems. Speaking as someone who tends to be a bit technically challenged, I promise, if you want to start a blog, you can do this.
I’ve been blogging for over ten years and, what started as a hobby that gave me an outlet while I was a new stay at home mom with young kids turned into a career that now fully supports my family of 8.
Blogging has been an amazing work at home job for me and there’s so much potential for you too.
Do you have a topic you are passionate about? If you aren’t afraid of a bit of hard work, you can create a blog that will help you earn an income from home while doing something you love.
