Five Best Paying Jobs for Busy Moms You Should Consider.
1.Become a Writer
As a busy mom this is one of the easiest home paying jobs you can start. You can quit your job today and start making some cash from your new career as a writer the next day.
Writing is also pretty easy as you don’t need any special skills to get started. All you’d need are a website(s) to get steady writing jobs, and the ability to develop ideas into interesting article pieces.
Also, the more you write, the better you get at writing,
To kick-start your career though, you might want to consider fixing a moderate price for your services and increase it as you get more clients and build a trusting relationship.
Some websites to get writing gigs include:
You could also sign up with micro payment sites and earn money for publishing pre-written blog posts on topics that interest you.
Some good ones are
You should however know that while writing on any of these sites will bring you some money, you stand to make a lot of money (enough to live on), when you write consistently and build a followership.
Also, like most things, your writing job should be viewed as a career and not a hobby if you want to succeed at it and make money. Have a workplace where all your writing activities get done and concentrate on writing a particular number of words daily (a thousand or more).
2.Become a Dressmaker
This is the route I took when I considered leaving paid employ to tend more to my family. Since I love dresses, what better career than one where I get to wear pretty dresses and also make money making for people.
You’d be making a great choice if you chose this business since clothing is a need for everyone. It means you’ll never be short of business.
However, unlike with writing, you would need to get trained to become quite good enough to be patronized, a period that takes between 6 -12 months.
You shouldn’t despair though, as you can start your training while still in paid employ and only pull out when you are certain your new career can conveniently and comfortably replace the one you’re leaving.
Once you are good enough, you can start out making outfits for friends and colleagues in your office and once you have built a reasonable enough clientele base, you can then look into resigning.
You can also look into getting clients online. There are tons of sites where you can market your outfits and set up a way to deliver them one purchase.
A few of these include:
The outfits can be made from the comfort of your home or you can get a small work station if that is to your liking.
This is one job that never fails to deliver and every busy mom looking to have more time on her hands should look into it.
3.Become a Web Designer
More and more women are becoming more internet savvy and going into a field once reserved for men.
As a busy mom with a love and flair for designing, this job will suit you best.
Web design and development is one skill that’s easy to learn. You can start by getting web design and/or development videos from YouTube or Lynda or choose to go under the tutelage of already established web designers or developers.
Whichever you decide to go for, be rest assured that with constant practice you will become seasoned and this is when you can start to make the big bucks.
Graphics design is also a good career choice for busy moms. Like web design, it also would require you get trained, but with determination and constant practice, you’ll soon become seasoned.
4.Go Into Dropping Shipping
It’s amazing how very few people know about this lucrative, yet very-easy-to-start business.
Drop shipping is a business that requires you getting a product from a producer or manufacturer to the end consumer and the best part is, you aren’t required to purchase or store these items beforehand.
The way it works, you find out products in hot demands, contact a producer of such product and then place place the orders. The producer ships out the products and you earn from the transaction.
As a drop shipper, you make your money by slightly increasing the price fixed BT the producer, that way you make a kind of “commission” from the sale.
You don’t need to invest when entering the world of drop shipping, however go boost sales, what a lot of drop shippers do is create a website listing products they have on ‘sale’ ( remember you don’t have these products stored physically) and try to drive traffic to this site.
A lot of drop shippers report having an increased sale when they carry out some moderate to major marketing and you can too.
