10 Awesome Ways For New Moms To Earn Income On The Side

You do not have to be fully employed in a big company to make money for your family, especially if you are a new mum. New mums can also earn a good income from the comfort of their home while looking after their kids. Here are ten awesome ways how.

Start a Blog

Pick a niche that you are passionate and can write about and start a blog about it. If you love fashion, relationships and design you can also combine all these topics into your blog and enjoy using your skills. Blogging can be a full-time job which can earn you lots of money while enjoying sharing something that you love.


Since you already have experience with children, babysitting someone else's child should be simple. Furthermore, you will be earning from it. You can start by taking care of one child or start a daycare where you can look after more than one child. Market your services through newsletters or via an online platform such as Craigslist.

Become a home tutor

If you have a talent start getting creative and expand it from your home. As a home tutor, you can hold classes in your home by teaching kids skills such as arts and crafts, or even cooking lessons for older people.

Sell on online platforms

Several online platforms such as eBay, Etsy, and Craigslist give you an opportunity to sell products. Craigslist sells larger items like furniture and appliances while Etsy sells crafts and quality DIY products.

Become a freelance Virtual Assistant

A freelance virtual assistant is a great way to work-from-home if you are a busy mom. You can work as a virtual assistant anytime depending on the level of work and set deadlines. Apply for small virtual assistant jobs by listing your services and sending proposals on sites like Upwork among others.

Sell baked products

For lovers of preparing home baked products, you can whip up some flour into a delicious cake for various events. Cupcakes are also great additions for both home and school parties. This keeps you occupied while taking care of your child and earns you some extra money.

Do photography

If you are a lover of pictures, then you should give photography a try. Build an attractive portfolio of previous work from events or of family and friends to market yourself. Then list the services that you can offer.

Freelance Writing for Blogs

Most blogs seek the services of online ghostwriters to write for the new content. Train yourself to write online articles where you get paid per number of words. All you need to do is research and write decent, grammatically free and original content that passes the Copyscape test.

Become an online tutor

Being an online tutor offers you ample time to plan your schedule and use your expertise in different subject matters at the comfort of your home. As a virtual tutor, you will utilize tools such as FaceTime, Skype, Google Hangouts and other technologies.

Become an author

For those who love writing, try writing books whenever you can. E-books are a great way to begin with as you master and decide on the topics that you would want to write about.

Whichever way you choose, you can find extra money to help you cater for both you and your child's needs.
