|Money for Moms|
Stay at home parents are becoming more and more abundant in our society for a variety of reasons: large daycare costs, job losses and on and on. And although the number of stay at home dads is on the rise, the stay at home mom is still more popular.
But just because they have the title of “stay at home mom” doesn’t mean that they can’t contribute to their family financially. If a mother has a specialty, she can carve out a niche and find several ways to make money from home. There are countless options on the internet: freelance writing, virtual assistance and freelance photographer just to name a few. Some mothers are also starting up online businesses and working as time permits while they are keeping the house in tip top shape. I tell ya…mothers can do it ALL!
On the other hand, a stay at home mom can also take advantage of the fact that she is at home and start an at home business. This opens the door for such possibilities as a catering company or even a sewing business—which is actually more popular than you may think. Also, some mothers make the choice to stay home solely for their kids. And this being the case, some mothers choose to run a day care from their home. This is not only a great way to make money, but it also helps to socialize their children with daily interactions with other kids.
Many women in today’s world own small niche businesses that have proven to bring in quite a bit of money. Some of these options may seem as if they are somewhat sexist, but when using gender to their advantage, there are a lot of great ways for mothers to make money while staying at home.
