Are you a stay-at-home mom? Looking for a job that will fit into your schedule and allow you to work from home? Here are some examples of jobs that can work for you and your busy life:
1) Re-sell stuff on Ebay
Ever been thrift-shopping? If not, you've seriously missed out! Drive to the nearest Goodwill, and you'll be surprised by the name brands and fashionable articles of clothing that are tucked on those racks. A Ralph Lauren polo or a Lululemon headband might be only a few bucks.
Search for and snatch the items that are produced by recognized brands and that are in good condition. Check to make sure there are no holes, stains or noticeable wear marks. Then go home, wash the clothes and post them on Ebay for more than the thrift store prices. For example, sell the Ralph Lauren polo that was $3 at Goodwill for $35 on Ebay. Even after subtracting taxes, you'll still make a sizable profit. Good for you! Now back to the thrift store.
Thankfully, this is a job that can include the kids and that can fit into any part of your day.
2) Start an Etsy business
If you're a stay-at-home mom who's into "Do It Yourself" projects and crafts, selling your stuff on Etsy could be the perfect job for you. "Etsy is a marketplace where people around the world connect, both online and offline, to make, sell and buy unique goods." Whether it's quilted pillows or hand-crafted jewelry, your projects and art can be sold to a variety of customers through this site. Just signup and create an account for whatever it is that you do best!
All over the world, companies, both big and small, need workers who they can hire for specific amounts of time or for individual projects. For example, an ad agency may need extra help with a certain design, so they hire an outside person to partner with them for that particular project.
You can use different websites, like Freelancer, where you can advertise your work. Remember to make connections and establish your individual brand through business cards and personal promotion.
4) Write reviews for books
Books gain credibility and publicity through online reviews. You can actually get paid to read and write reviews about certain books, especially educational ones. So if you enjoy reading and have a knack for writing, search for websites that will offer compensation for written reviews, and it just might be the perfect job for you!
