Make Money as a Mom Without It Consuming Your Life

There’s an unfortunate need in life to make money, as this usually takes up a lot of time, and pulls us away from our children.  This can be a very hard balancing act to manage, particularly if you are a single mom, yet there are ways to make money without it consuming your life.

The challenge is that most people trade their time for money, and in this sense, if they want to earn more money they have to put in more hours - and more hours at work means less hours at home, which can severely impact the emotional development of children, if you are always at work.

Unfortunately, money is a vital ingredient in life that is required to bring food on the table and keep a roof over your head - yet, the only thing that’s unfortunate about this is the process of having to go out and earn it.  However, most people enjoy creating value and the sense of pride that comes from earning a living rather than being a kept citizen, what they don’t enjoy is the feeling that work consumes their life.

In this vein, many working moms are looking for ways to earn money from home via a side hustle or similar business opportunity that brings in a decent income without having to work all the time, or at least, being able to work more flexibly around the needs of her family.

In this article, we’re going to look at three popular options to make money from home without it compromising your family time or consuming your life.


Whilst you might have heard of the explosive growth of bitcoin, you might be curious to know about other countries, such as what is litecoin and how can you make money from it.  Then, there are other options such as Forex trading where you trade foreign currencies - gambling on, for instance, whether the dollar will go up against the pound.

There is of course the option to lose money as well as make money when investing, but many people view it as a calculated risk rather than a gamble.


Networking marketing is where you become an independent distributor of a company then recommend (i.e. sell) their products through relationship marketing - either in person or online, and in return, you make a commission for each sale.

In addition, to this, you can build a team of sales reps that you coach.  The company then pays you a coaching bonus on the volume that goes through your team of sales reps - which means you can quite quickly generate a scalable income, whilst working from home, and not having to put in too many hours yourself.


Whilst it takes some time to get yourself established, as a blogger, once you have enough content and a significant following you can start to monetise your blog by hosting advertising, affiliate marketing, and perhaps even creating and selling your own products such as a digital course that you can market via targeted Facebook ads.
