Being a single mother means that life can, unfortunately, be hectic, and other than your normal job in town you may believe that there’s no realistic way for you to make good extra income on the side.
But in reality, thanks to the wide number of jobs available on the internet there are actually an extremely wide variety of ways for you to earn extra money from home as a single mother.
Here are four ways you can earn money from home as a single mom:
The beauty of using your writing talents to earn money is that there are several ways you can do so. You can work as a freelance writer by writing blog articles and eBooks for clients. Or you can write your own eBooks and then sell Kindle and paperback versions of them on Amazon Kindle.
Alternatively, you can start your own blog (such as a mom blog for instance) and earn money through ad revenue and affiliate marketing.
Penny Stock Trading
There are many stay-at-home parents who make a fair amount of money on the side through penny stock trading or the trading of stocks that are valued at less than five dollars each. Penny stock trading appeals to many people because of the limited initial capital that you will have to invest.
If you have your college degree in a certain subject that is taught in school, then you should be able to make extra money as an online tutor. You’ll get paid around ten to fifteen dollars per hour, and you can provide as many hours of tutoring lessons as you want to (depending on the number of students that you want to take on).
All that you will really need to do is sign up for an online tutoring site (such as tutor.com) and if you get approved you can begin tutoring to students who need help in the subjects for which you are qualified.
You can also make money by taking high-quality photos and then selling them online. One way to do is to take photos with a good composition with your smartphone and then post them on online photography sites, where you will earn a small royalty each time one of your images is sold. This path will at least earn you a few extra dollars each day, which in and of itself isn’t bad.
But if you want to make more serious money with photography, you need to be an actual professional photographer with an expensive camera and high-quality equipment. You’ll be able to charge far more per photo and you’ll even be able to start your own website and sell your images directly from there.
