Children are one of god’s best creations. They are also one of his most complicated (and extremely exhausting) creations. So if you had decided to quit your career once your children came around, we totally understand. After all, not only do kids need all the love you can give them, but they also need your attention and support—which can be a little hard to do if both you and your spouse are career oriented people.
But the days when a family can survive solely in the income of one family member are almost forgotten. After all, everything around us functions, at least partially, with money. Everything is turning out to be expensive. So it’s almost vital to have every available hand of a family help in and contribute. And exhausting as your duty as a stay at home parent already is, if you want to earn money while still being around your children, then we might have a few suggestions to help you out.
Read below our recommendations on how to earn money, right from the comfort of your home.
Freelance or work online
With the advancing of technology, the world is right at our finger tips. Working online can give you the freedom to work right from your home, even while still keeping an eye on your child/children. The same can be said for being a freelancer as well. If whatever job you previously did can be done as a freelancer, or from a distance; then you’re in luck! Look into, and reach out to your old work friends to find job opportunities.
Do what you enjoy
If you were not a career oriented person even before your children came around, or if you have been away from the business world for too long, then we understand that the above suggestion won’t be very useful to you. In this case, play your strength. If your hobbies can be converted into a job, then what’s not to like about it? Do you have a talent with art? Or a talent for making hand-made jewelry? Perhaps an interest in tie-and-dye using fabric dye and great craft supplies that you can use to design a scrapbook.
Any of these (and more) can be turned into a business. Besides it’s a definite plus that most craft supplies, regardless to whether it’s Derwent pencils Australia, or fabric dyes, can be found easily both locally and online.
Work part time or for orders
We know that working full time, even from the comfort of your own home isn’t possible if you have very young children. And then there’s the thing about children falling sick, needing help with projects, and all those unexpected surprises they throw your way. Naturally, it’s going to hard to work full time, even if it’s online. Working part time or for orders in this case be more prudent. If you have and interest for sewing or cooking, or even crafts, you can turn it into a part time job.
Remember, if you like what you do, even a job can be entertaining.
