One of the largest groups of people in my audience is moms.
I’m not a mom yet, so why do so many moms read my blog posts and emails every week?
Because I talk about working from home.
Moms tend to be super clear on their why for working from home. They want to stay home with their kids and be there whenever they need them.
That’s a pretty awesome why, isn’t it!
But being a mom tends to mean that you don’t have a lot of spare time to spend searching for ways to make your dream family life come true. And you certainly don’t have time to waste hoping and praying that your at-home business will take off.
You need resources that will help you skip the hoping and praying stage and jump right into the action stage. You need a road map for how to be a successful work-at-home mom.
I’ve got you covered! I’ve rounded up five of the best resources for moms that are included in Work-At-Home School. Whether you’re still trying to figure out what your skills are, you’re freaking out about the business side of things, or you’re just looking for a way to make some extra money from home that you can involve the kids in, you’ll find it all in Work-At-Home School.
Keep reading to find out what my favorite resources for moms are!
Question for you: how much cash do you have sitting around your house or garage in the form of collectibles, unused exercise equipment, old smartphones, or even cars that are just gathering dust?
What if you could turn your unwanted items into cash that will feed your family?
Let me introduce you to my real-life friends Rob and Melissa Stephenson — seriously; they live thirty minutes from me. They earn more than $40,000 per year (last year they earned $133,000!!) by buying in-demand items from flea markets and thrift stores at rock-bottom prices, then “flipping” those items for jaw-dropping profits.
Rob and Melissa have three young children and are able to support their entire family every month on just their flipping profits. They turned their side hustle into a full-time gig four years ago and have their three young kids do it alongside them.
They also now teach others to do the same with their course Flipper University. This beginner course lays the foundation so you can start a side hustle flipping items for money. It helps people start working from home and make money quickly!
Flipping is something anyone can do, and it works especially well for moms who want to work from home. So why not give it a try!
Want to get started right now? Melissa and Rob are hosting a 30-day challenge starting on April 6 that could help you make $250 while in quarantine! You can sign up for the free challenge here.
Wait, that’s not all! They also have a free Beginner’s Guide to Selling on eBay eBook!
One of the easiest ways for moms to start working from home is to become a virtual assistant. You can use skills you already have to earn money from your laptop while your kids are napping or in school.
But if you want to level up your income, it pays to niche down and focus on one or two key skills.
I’m super excited to tell you about this next work-at-home resource for moms. It was created by Maia Xiong, one of my awesome virtual assistants who’s been working with me for several years.
Just a few short years ago, Maia was a stressed-out working mom with a full-time job who desperately wanted to work from home but had no idea how to make it happen. Sound familiar? Now she’s a busy work-at-home mom of four and creator of Motherhood at Home, a website dedicated to helping moms create and grow their online business.
After leaving her desk job three years ago, she has been able to achieve financial independence, flex her creativity, and reach a bigger audience with her message, which is that you can have a fulfilling career without the mom guilt.
She learned in-demand skills to solve problems for people and developed her own powerful techniques to get ahead. And now she wants to help other people learn these skills.
