Are you a mom looking to create a new revenue income stream to support your family?!
Nowadays, you have multiple ways to do it, such as a full-time job or a side gig that you can later turn it to earn a full-time income.
Here you have the best options as a mom today to get started.
1. Virtual Assistant
The demand for virtual assistants will always be steady thanks to the resiliency of the role. Virtual assistants are useful to many because their digital nature allows them to easily perform versatile tasks and adapt.
Work remotely from any time of day and any location to assist businesses around the world. You need some transferable office and organization skills to start this virtual side hustle.
2. Sell Printables on Etsy
If you enjoy designing graphics or printables, start selling them on Etsy as a side hustle.
This is a passive side hustle because you must create and list the products.
There are so many different things that you can sell on Etsy. Etsy focuses mainly on handmade or digital items that you have created yourself.
The great thing about starting a blog is that anyone can do it. The best part is you don’t need to have any prior experience. Everything can be learned along the way.
It’s important to remember that a blog is a business – that is, if you want to make money from it.
So it would be best if you approached it in the same way that you would or any other business.
First thing first, decide your niche and devise a plan on how you will make money from it.
The most common ways of making money from a blog include display ads, affiliate marketing, sponsored posts, and selling your own products.
4. Freelance Writer
Have a passion for writing? Earn money with it by freelancing your writing skills. Sites like Upwork and Fiverr allow you to freelance your services easily.
Take jobs writing blog posts, ghostwriting books, or crafting press releases all from the comfort of your home.
5. Walk Dogs
If you’re a dog lover and a fan of getting your steps in, dog walking may be a natural fit into your routine as a side hustle. Hop onto apps like Wag or Rover to get connected with owners in need of walkers. This side hustle is great for flexibility because you set your own schedule.
6. Rent Out Kid Toys
If you don’t want to sell your kids’ old toys, consider renting them out using the Toy Library.
This is a great way for moms who are looking to make some extra cash by finding new homes for their kids’ old things.
7. YouTube Channel
As a mom, one of the most lucrative side hustles you can do is start a YouTube channel.
You can focus your channel on motherhood or on any of your talents or interests. Many mothers on YouTube create beauty, fashion, food, wellness, and art content.
Find a niche that fits your passions and start posting regular content to increase views. After racking up the views, you can rake in the money from YouTube through ads and even sponsorships.
Do you have a knack for finding things that other people don’t need anymore? Sell these items on Decluttr!
You can sell your unused stuff, clear up space in your house, and earn some cash while you clean up your life.
9. Rent Out Your Car
Car owners can make money by listing their vehicles on Turo. This is a great way to make some extra cash for moms who don’t use their vehicles often.
10. Pinterest VA
Another great way to work as a virtual assistant is with Pinterest.
Typically, Pinterest VAs are responsible for creating beautiful Pinterest boards for their clients.
Clients can provide you with a list of topics or ideas that they’re interested in learning about and then you’ll come up with board themes.
For example, if you’re working with a fashion client, they may want to create boards around specific types of outfits. The more images that you can gather for your boards, the better it will be!
11. Video Editing
According to Payscale, freelance video editors’ average salary is $20 an hour (in the U.S.). In my experience, it mostly depends on your experience and duties.
For example, editing promotional videos for small businesses pays more than making Youtube videos.
Video editing can be an overwhelming subject to learn. It is, after all, a blend of both technical and artistic skills. In the beginning, it is best to pick video editing software and follow some tutorials to learn the basics.
12. Translation Work
If you speak another language, try translating as a side hustle. Moms are perfect for this role because they have to be experts at deciphering something like baby gibberish, so translating a real language that you’re fluent in should require less guesswork.
13. Meal Prep for Other People
If you’re an expert meal prepper, help others who don’t share your talents. Get paid to prepare nutritious meals for those that don’t have the time or the energy to do so.
You can do all your prepping and cooking at home and drop off meals to your customers weekly or monthly.
Start by selling your go-to recipes and build a loyal customer base from there. Use our weekly planner below to help coordinate your meal drop-offs.
Make use of your impeccable grammar skills by freelancing as a proofreader. Read over articles, books, or manuscripts and get paid to catch errors and make corrections. Settle in with a cup of tea or coffee and enjoy proofreading for extra money at home.
15. Online Language Teacher
Moms are some of the best language teachers. Your kids learn language when you teach them to say their name or help them with their ABCs, and your proficiency at teaching a child to be fluent in a language makes it a natural side hustle for moms. Explore teaching English as a second language (ESL) or if you’re multilingual, offer lessons in your other languages.
16. Voiceover Work
You may know the Marge Simpson-like voice of Nancy Cartwright, but did you know that she makes $8 million every year in royalties just for voicing Bart in The Simpsons?
Voice actors can do studio work for films, commercials, or cartoons. They earn money reading whatever when their voices are used in these productions and then receive royalties when they are played on TV or at the movies!
If you’d like to turn your vocal talents into a side hustle, check out sites like Voice123 and Voices.com where you can look for jobs that need voice actors. This may be another a highest-paying side hustle once you get your gigs lined up!
Print on Demand is a business model for everyone who has a brilliant t-shirt, mug or sticker idea and would like to sell it online. It’s also for people who want to free themselves from order fulfillment and would instead focus on growing their business, sales, and marketing.
POD business is one of the best solutions when it comes to getting your custom merchandise for sale quickly. As a seller, you only have to worry about product design and selling. Once a sale is made, great POD partners take over for you.
Do you have a way with words and the ability to listen carefully? Then transcription might be for you!
This is a great side hustle for moms because it requires minimal training and allows you to work from home.
Typically, an employer will provide you with a set of audio files that need to be transcribed one by one. You’ll listen to the audio file, type out what you hear, and then edit your work for any errors.
19. Sell Photography Online
There are other ways to make money from photography, such as selling your photos on stock photo sites. This is a good way to do it as a Mom, as it’s more passive than just being a professional photographer.
If you are interested in selling your photos, check out Shutterstock or Depositphotos. You can also sell stock photos or mockups to bloggers or on sites like Etsy.
20. Product Testing
All moms know that families can go through a lot of food and products. If you’re constantly trying out new soaps, snacks, or gadgets, why not get paid for it?
Sign up with a brand or firm to become a product tester. Big brands like Johnson & Johnson and McCormick pay people to test their products, but you can also sign up through a market research firm like American Consumer Opinion.
21. Amazon KDP
So many of us have a dream deep down of writing our own book. As a Mom, this can be a high-paying side hustle if you do it well.
We don’t want to encourage you to put out anything – we would love for you to write something that you genuinely love and sell lots of them!
It’s never been easier to publish a book, as you can self-publish using Amazon and other similar services.
Make sure that you do your research on your competitors, plan it out properly, and get someone to proofread it.
22. Online Yoga Teacher
Yogi moms can help others develop their bodies and minds by becoming certified yoga instructors. Learn more about the philosophy of yoga through teacher training and specialize in a specific style like Vinyasa or Hatha. After completing training, try teaching through a studio or online and bring the many mental, spiritual, and physical benefits of yoga to others.
23. Graphic Design
Flex your graphic design skills by freelancing. Work on designing creative graphics for websites, prints, or products. You can also try selling your own designs online or through local businesses. Your imagination is really the limit when it comes to graphic design, so embrace your inner artist and designer with this side hustle.
24. Gardening Work
For the gardeners, make some extra cash by helping others with their yards and gardens. Spend your free time outside, enjoy the fresh air, and exercise your green thumb. Feel free to do this side hustle on weekends or whatever days of the week work best for you.
25. Animal Grommer
If you like taking care of animals, but pet sitting or dog walking isn’t for you, there’s still a way for moms to make money by grooming pets.
This takes moderate skills, but plenty of people are looking for people to come to their house and groom their pets!
It’s minimal training and investment, but I know some people who have paid a minimum of $100 to get their dog washed and dried- this side hustle could bring you a couple of hundred bucks a day!
26. House Sitter
If you live in a large, metropolitan area, there are several side hustle apps where you can connect with people who need a sitter for their houses while they’re out of town!
It can be the easiest side hustle you find- you mostly just hang out at other people’s houses and keep yourself entertained.
All you really have to do is go over to their house, check on their pets, mail, or plants, take their garbage to the curb, and make sure there isn’t a problem with anything.
27. Online Music Teacher
Share the gift of music by teaching others. If you have mastery in piano, guitar, voice, or any other instruments, you can teach students at all levels to sing or play an instrument. If you’re proficient in an area of music, feel free to take on students at the beginner level.
28. Real State Agent
Becoming a real estate agent in your free time is another side hustle option for moms. You can have flexibility in your schedule and make big bucks at any given time depending on the houses you sell. Spend time studying for your state’s real estate exam and pass it to get your license in order to get started.
29. Affiliate Marketing
As an affiliate marketer you will earn money by promoting other people’s products, getting a fixed percentage of the sale. This can go from 2% all the way up to 50%-70%.
You just need to deploy some basic systems to get potential clients buy from you (through a sales funnel) and send traffic to it, either through a blog, social media or paid ads.
The average affiliate marketer makes anything between $2K to $5K per month, but there are extremely successful cases where people end up making $100K per month (John Crestani and Liam James Kay are good examples of this)
If you have a car and some free time, you can use it to transport people all around the city through the Uber app. You just need to sign up and get approved to start having clients right away near you.
31. Sell Crafts on Etsy
If you’re a mom that loves to craft, try turning your hobby into a side hustle. Whether you crochet, make jewelry, do ceramics, or woodwork, you can sell your handmade creations online on sites like Etsy.
When selling online, it’s helpful to take quality photos of your crafts so that their uniqueness can shine.
32. Social Media Manager
Many businesses are too busy to keep up with social media accounts- and that’s where you come in!
Social media management is one of the best side hustles you can get started with as a stay-at-home mom. You can work online and make $40 per hour!
Typically, social media positions involve creating marketing strategies and interesting content so businesses can connect with existing customers and attract new ones.
For example, you might create Facebook ads for an online clothing store and then run Instagram contests of their clothes to increase brand awareness.
Have a knack for numbers and want to use it to make some additional income? Bookkeeping might just be the perfect side hustle to add to your routine. Thanks to digital software, you can send invoices, balance accounts, track payroll, and process payments from anywhere.
Driving for delivery services is a fairly common side hustle for all kinds of people. It’s a flexible option for moms who may already spend a good amount of time in the car, whether it’s trips to the grocery store or shuttling kids to and from school. Get paid to drive around and deliver takeout and groceries through services like DoorDash and Instacart.
35. Website Building
If you have prior experience in web development and design, freelance your services to people or businesses that need a website. Many pay professionals around $5,000 for a good quality and reliable custom-built website, and you have the freedom to get the work done any time of day. This may also be a good option to side hustle your skills on top of a full-time job. If you put in the work, you can earn a lot of extra money relatively quickly and use it to achieve big goals like paying off credit card debt or saving for a house.
Already a social media maven? Put your skills to use by helping grow their businesses using social media ads
This is a great side hustle to do from the comfort of your own home, and there are tons of resources out there to start learning how to do it.
Expertise can really boost your pay, so try upskilling your social media skills to add value to your services and earn more.
37. Event Catering
you’re really good at cooking and find it enjoyable, consider becoming a caterer for weddings and other events.
You can usually sign up to work with local event planners or catering companies that are looking to hire part-time staff.
38. Housekeeping Gig
Housekeeping as a mom can be a full-time job, but a clean house doesn’t pay the bills. Try offering cleaning and housekeeping services to others to make some extra cash. You decide how many customers you take on and can make your own schedule. While this side hustle may not require a lot of experience, it will involve some elbow grease.
39. Fitness Coach
If you’re passionate about health and fitness and helping others, personal training can be a great career path.
Can you make good money as a fitness coach? Yes, making good money as a personal trainer is very viable.
Even entry-level personal trainers can make upwards of $25 an hour, and easily up to $100 an hour if they are experienced.
If you’re looking for a way to make some extra money, consider becoming a Dasher, a Doordash Delivery Driver. Delivery drivers are in high demand, and there is always work available.
Today is easier than ever to find delivery jobs. Check out the app DoorDash! All you need is a car and a valid driver’s license.
Doordash delivery drivers make good money and can be done in your spare time if you are a busy mom trying to make an extra income try out one of the delivery services.
41. Tailor Clothes
Are you skilled with a needle and thread? Use those skills by side hustling as a tailor or seamstress. Do everything from hemming pants, taking in shirts, mending ripped clothes, and altering dresses. You could try out a part-time gig through a clothing store or just freelance from home.
42. Event Planning
Moms have lots of experience with planning. Whether it’s meal planning or coordinating doctor’s visits for multiple kids, a lot of moms let no detail go unnoticed. Put that talent to work by planning events for others. You can tackle big events, like a wedding or conference, or smaller parties and occasions. Find your niche and let your attention to detail and capacity to multitask shine.
43. Professional Photography
Photography is another flexible side hustle option. Offer to take portraits for families, weddings, engagements, new babies, graduations, and other special occasions.
Take pictures of your own family and friends and build a portfolio to showcase your work to potential clients.
Don’t forget to promote your work on social media and add skills to your resume like the one below to entice new clients.
44. Rent Out Your RV
Do you have a camper or RV? Turns out, you can make a lot of money each year renting out your camper or RV when you aren’t using it!
And thankfully, they have an app called RVshare that does all the work for you! It’s similar to Airbnb but for campers. And the app is free!
Renting out your camper when you aren’t using it is one of the best side hustles for stay-at-home moms.
45. Data Entry
Are you skilled at typing fast and accurately?
If so, data entry might be your perfect option.
It’s also a great choice for moms because it requires very little training and can be done from the comfort of your own home.
Typically, a client will provide you with a set of data in a spreadsheet or other document that needs to be entered into a new spreadsheet or database.
This type of work is helpful when you’re in the beginning stages of your freelancing career because it’s fairly straightforward and easy to complete in a short period of time.
46. Flip Items Online
If you are looking for a fun side hustle to do that will get you out of the house and hopefully get the kids involved, flipping other people’s junk can be a good one.
Often, when you are trying to think of ways to earn some extra money, it can involve some upfront costs, which you want to avoid.
That’s why flipping things can be a great side hustle – the upfront cost is so low, but the returns can be so high.
We recommend checking out Flea Market Flipper – these guys not only teach how to flip things to make a big profit but have made mad money flipping items they find at flea markets themselves.
