Is there anyway to be a stay at home mom & make money

Im currently a stay at home mom. Im looking to make a little extra money each month. Ive tried doing home daycare in the past. But with my current situation with my kids. (who both are now in school full time) its hard to have a job that I have to commit hours to. I want to have a real job, but My daughter has been hospitolized several times within the last few months, & for those reason is why having a job outside the house is almost impossible to have. Just looking for ideas, or what other stay at home moms are doing.

  • Most definately there are other things to do. Just don't limit yourself with "I can't". Think positive, and you can achieve what you want to do! Do you know that more millionaires happen during an economic downfall than at any other time! This is because WE become entrepreuneurs! You find something that you think you CAN do. Look around at what you are good at. Can you keep a house clean? Clean a couple of others a week. (Run an ad, or word of mouth), Can you sew? (I have a lady that makes incentive gifts for me & now others in our Scentsy team) we all referred her around because of her Embroidery work! Now she has expanded into School logos!
    Can you type, do you know certain software programs - there are internet sites to do : virtural assistance. I looked into all kinds & landed with Scentsy. I'm in love with this! It fits me. Fits my style (though I didn't think I "Could" do this) and now I'm a Director!
