Are there any moms out there that have tips on making money while staying at home?

I have been looking for something that I can do on the computer while my little one takes his nap and for the life of me the only thing that I seem to be able to find are scams.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

  • If you are interested in a business I am with AMERIPLAN. I do 90% of my work online and because it's your own business you can work whenever you want. You just have to be able to put in at least 10 hours of work a week.
    I do any phone calls the I do need to make while my daughter naps. But I tried all the junk stuff online and got nowhere. I coach gymnastics and one of my students moms showed me what I do now and I LOVE IT!!! You can listen to a brief overview if you want 616-712-1118 and then shoot me an email and we can chat.
    Good Luck and God Bless!!!

  • Becareful with Melaluca. They wont tell you that it's them until you watch the presentation. I looked up their reviews on And when your trying to recruit more people your not allowed to tell them it's melaluca....kinda shady I think. They also have alot of complaints through the BBB. I do some work with You find anwers to questions people ask and get paid like .14 for each one. It adds up in the end of the month. Good luck!

  • I work a JOB, I'm an independent contractor with kgb ( I don't make a lot of money, but it's a few extra dollars, ya know? It's not hard, and it is REALLY fun! You answer people's text message questions, and you learn a lot! It's also really entertaining... people ask some really crazy stuff. They've had some commercials on TV lately as well. I've made about $15 working a total of 5 hours. Like I said, not a lot of money, but I just started. I'm hoping to get that number higher as I get more used to how everything works.

  • You can search for jobs that match your skillset and have a telecommute or remote option. Do you have a former employer you could work for remotely? If you have a computer with high speed internet & Microsoft Office Pro & have at least intermediate MS Office skills, you should be able to find work as a virtual assistant (VA). For more information, go to
    Do you have a skill or experience that you can turn into a home based business? I have a friend who makes children's hair accessories in her basement & sells them to boutiques around the Midwest. My husband runs a handyman business from our home. I work from home with two lines of business; I do freelance bookkeeping & business organization; I also do career & job search coaching. I am always happy to help cafemoms (and dads) with resumes, cover letters, job search strategy & interview preparation. Feel free to contact me directly –Robin
