How to make money from home as a stay at home Mom?
As many new Mothers would know, when the little ones come along and you have to stay at home for a while to look after them, money can get a little tight.
Maybe you want to stay home until they go to school, or maybe you want to find a way to earn some money from home and not go back into the workforce at all.
Maybe you want to start a home business and have an awesome work/life balance, where you can earn good money, and still have all the time you need and desire for your family.
So how can you make money from home as a stay at home Mom?
Start a business
There are only really two ways that you can start a business at home, make some money, and still have the time for your family when they need you.
The first one is network marketing or multi-level marketing (MLM) and the other is having some sort of online business.
Network marketing would involve promoting a product such as Isagenix, Avon, Nu-skin etc, and would involve lots of phone calls, hosting networking parties and recruiting other people into your system to sell the products as well.
If you are a real people person and this resonates with you, then this could be a good way to go, but in my opinion, if you really want to earn good money at home and maintain a fantastic lifestyle, then you should look at leveraging the worldwide reach of the Internet and build yourself an online business.
Why an online business?
The best thing about starting an online business, is that you can work on it at anytime that you like.
There are no set hours or 9-5.
You can work for a couple of hours in the morning when everyone is still asleep, in the afternoon when the baby is having a nap, in the evening when everyone has gone to bed, or anytime in between.
Whenever you can find a spare hour or two, you can pull the laptop out and work on your business.
There is no need to spend all day working on an online business, as long as you can find a couple of hours a day, you can build your business part-time, and by the time the kids are ready to go to school, you could be making a substantial income.
You can also work on something that interests you, or that you are even passionate about.
What are your hobbies, interests or passions?
What knowledge could you share with others that you could build an online business around?
With the worldwide reach of the Internet, the options are endless.
For example you could build an online store and sell countless items from Amazon.
You could create and sell eBooks and online courses.
You can even sell other peoples products as an affiliate.
All that you need is a bit of training and support.
These days it has never been easier for stay at home Moms, and even Dads, to earn a significant income by building their own online businesses, and turning their passions into a paycheck.
I don’t know about you, but that sure beats fighting amongst the the traffic to head to an office everyday where you will be told what to do, when to have a break, when you can leave, and even when you can go to the toilet!
The fact is that as a stay at home Mom, you are in the best position to start to build an online business right now, and start building a better life for your family.
Having an online business is also a very low cost to start, all you really need is a laptop and an Internet connection.
How do I start an online business?
At this point you might be saying that it all sounds well and good, but I don’t know where to start and what to do?
And I will admit, it can be a really steep learning curve, that is why you need the right tools, training and support.
