I have only ever been a receptionist prior to having kids and have been out of the work force for almost 6 years. I desperately want to stay home, especially considering how much it costs for daycare these days, knowing I would have to pay out more than I could possibly make. I’m not good at sales, and I don’t feel too good at anything these days except for being a mom. You know how it goes your constantly on the go with one at school and one walking and climbing everywhere you never have time for yourself and when you get a minute to breathe your being told you have a full time job but it’s not work because you are not bringing in any money… So I guess is there anything out there that anyone can recommend for me to try from home? I’m no good at writing or blogging either, I’m actually not even on a computer much but even if I could make $20 a day something to contribute financially so I don’t feel so worthless right now. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated:).

Transcriptions n’ Translations provides transcription and translation services to the entertainment industry. You can work as one of the company’s transcribers. There’s not much information available about this position, so it’s unclear how much the company pays. But, if you’re interested in transcribing stuff for the company, then apply for a position.
My husband and I were builders in the military. Now, I’m a stay-at-home mom and he goes to school full-time, so our budget is extremely tight. It’s even tighter with hundreds of dollars going towards debt each month. We decided to use our construction experience to renovate and sell our home for a profit. We plan to use the money to pay off most, if not all, our debt. The next house should make enough money for us to pay ourselves a monthly salary while we work on the house after that and so on. This will be our “job,” so we get to work at home and create our own schedule as a family.
Thanks so much for this great article. I’ve been trying to get a graphic design business but am having trouble finding business. I’d also love to blog but don’t know where to start. There are so many amazing blogs out there that it’s hard to think I could have anything new to contribute. But my son is 6 months now and it seems like a perfect time to get started…thanks for the ideas and encouragement!
There is enough material available online to help create your own website. This includes choosing the domain, templates, and the design for your website. Once ready to service the visitors with the relevant content, sign up for Google Adsense, which when appear on your website and clicked by visitors help you make money. The more the traffic you get on your website, the more will be the potential for higher earnings.
On their own websites, bloggers make money by selling their own products or advertising others. Advertising revenue is generated through advertisements, sponsorships, or affiliate marketing. In addition to their own blogs, many bloggers look for online writing jobs. Freelance writing provides a steadier stream of income than blogging, and it is easier to start making money quickly – making it a great way to supplement your income as you grow your own blog.
As a review writer, you need to be honest. People want to know what you think, not what the company thinks. If there are any downsides to the product, be sure to mention those as well as the things you love. This balanced approach helps your review stand out to people reading it. It’s not just another glowing review. They learn they can trust you to tell the truth, even if it’s not what you expected.
Online savings accounts usually come with crazy good interest rates to help you grow your money faster (regular in-person banks can’t offer rates as high). We’re fans of CIT Bank and Discover Bank (among others) because their interest rates are often over 25 times the national average. That means the money in your savings account will grow 25 times faster than the pace it’s most likely growing at now. Really, though, you can’t go wrong with pretty much any online savings account that offers over 1.50% APY 🙂
As a freelance writer, you can decide what services to offer. Do you enjoy creating basic content for websites, such as the “About Us” page? You can specialize in creating the text for basic websites. Are blog posts more your style? Active blogs help companies draw readers and potential customers. Many companies hire freelance writers to create blog posts on a recurring basis. If you get a few clients like that, you’ll have a steady income you can depend on.
If you're looking to address some immediate financial needs, then the app economy is likely right for you. Thanks to the global sharing phenomenon, launched in part by our smartphones and ever-burgeoning global connectivity, you could easily opt for some quick active income by using well-known apps. From ride sharing to deliveries and even quick tasks, there's an app for that today, as the saying goes.
Something else I recommend is taking the free 7-lesson mini-course on general transcription offered by Janet Shaughnessy of Transcribe Anywhere. This will help you to understand if you're a good fit for a transcription career, what you can potentially earn, and also where to get started. Janet also has free legal transcription mini-course if you're more interested in going that route.
