There are a lot of ways to make money from home. You can actually make a decent income from that. The reason many are not doing that even in times of financial need is mainly because of the lack of patience to build it up. Many want big, quick money. It’s not going to work. Not only do you put your skills and talents to work, you have to promote and market your products and service. I have here:

6 Ways Mothers Can Easily Make Money From Home

  1. Baking
    Lots of people love home made breads. It is very easy to make and taste way better than the commercial ones. No preservatives and other additives are added. I had tried it before and it was very saleable.  A friend of mine also made bread to sell. She made 40 loaves a day and sold them for $2-$4 depending on the type of bread. Just loaves of bread alone each day brought in about $100 a day. That’s good money. You can also bake cookies and others for sale.
  2. Make cards
    If you are creative, you can make good money out of making cards. Materials are easily available. If you scout around, you’ll probably be able to get a lot of left over free stuff for making cards, like paper and fabric, buttons and ribbons.
  3. Babysit
    Taking care of babies when their parents go to work or parties is a good way to make money. You are paid per hour. More so, when the baby sleeps, you can do your own thing.
  4. Home tutoring
    If you have the skill, organised and systematic, you make big money.  Parents these days are not willing to teach their own children, even simple Arithmetic. They would rather pay someone to teach.
    You can have a class of 10 pupils if they are all of the same level. Or you can even do online tutoring.
  5. Craftwork
    You can easily make money out of your hobby. Those who are good in woodwork can make nice, decorative items for sale. A friend of mine loves to make cute stuff and little children would always be looking for her to buy them.
  6. Direct selling and networking businesses
    If you are good in personal relationship and marketing skills, direct selling and network marketing is a good souce of income. Many at-home mothers sell cosmetics and other fashion accessories. It’s good money.

Of course there are lots of other ways to make money from home if you have other skills, but these 6 ways have proven to be very effective in making a decent income as a mother with little children to take care. All you need to do is to market and promote your products or services. You can have a party to start off, inform friends and build your network, promote on your website or blog, sell at fund raising events or local markets, etc. You can even have a group of friends to do a patio sale.

Don’t be afraid to make money. You are making honest money. Your friends will be thankful to you because you are actually doing them a favour. They get quality products and services that they don’t really get elsewhere. Don’t be afraid of people who critisize you. There will always be critics in life. Take it positively. You can’t please everyone and you can’t control what they say. They will be very jealous when you are successful.

Thought of the day……

‘Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education alone will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan “press on” has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.’

John Calvin Coolidge
