Having a baby is life changing in every respect. Alongside the intense joy of holding your baby in your arms there are the practical considerations of how to continue earning a living.
It is well-known that women can be discriminated against when they consider returning to their career. For many returning to a full-time job is not an option, particularly in parts of the world where childcare is very expensive. Today we are going to cover work from home opportunities for stay at home moms.
Online opportunities to generate income
Working on the internet can be the ideal solution for stay at home mum’s (and stay at home dad’s). The beauty of the internet is that you really can work from home and have the same opportunities to generate an income as anyone else anywhere in the world.
There are lots of different ways to make money online. You probably already know someone who earns some money on the side selling items on eBay or Amazon. You have probably already bought several items yourself online.
One of the most suited methods of making money online for the stay at home mum is affiliate marketing. Most major companies will pay individuals a commission for any customers that get referred to their website.
For example, Amazon will pay a commission for any products which are bought via a referral from someone. It’s quite easy these days for you to set up a website and use this as a platform to recommend or review products which can then be bought through Amazon earning you a commission.
The best ways of starting up online
The sad news is that a large proportion of people who try to make money online fail. The simple reason for this is that they lack the necessary skills, knowledge and support.
You can waste a lot of time in the prolonged process of trial and error in an attempt to make it online. This is time-consuming and expensive. If you don’t have guidance from people who are already making money online then the reality is you are likely to struggle.
There is a lot to learn and it is difficult to know where to start. What is the solution? The solution is joining a community of like-minded individuals who can support and guide you in the right direction. The best type of community to join will provide you with focused training to help you build the necessary skills and knowledge.
From all my research the best community to join is Wealthy Affiliate.
Create your own money making website
Creating your own website is the very first and most important step in setting up a successful online business. The prospect of setting up a website can be very scary if you have not done it before.
However, if you have the right support with this it can be quite simple and just take a few minutes. You can get all the necessary help and support with setting up a website at online communities such as Wealthy Affiliate.
It’s possible to create websites which have in built functionality meaning that you can be up and running very quickly. You can easily pick from a wide variety of website templates which will fit whatever niche you choose to target with your online business. The bottom line is you should definitely not let a lack of technical knowledge on your part create fear which would result in you never setting up online.
Advantages of having an online business
Having you own online business has a range of advantages. Owning your own website means that you would have your own online business.
You can generate a passive income online. There is really no limit to the amount of money you can earn online. With just one website it’s possible to generate a full-time income. Many people go onto to build huge businesses from the luxury of their own homes.
An online business provides the perfect vehicle for wealthy creation. Most jobs really are never going to result in being financially free, at least not until you are in your late 60s, if you are lucky. The disadvantage of a job is that you get paid a set amount for each hour you work.
The internet frees up this connection between time and money. You could be earning money via your website during your sleep or whilst on holiday. This is how people become wealthy.
A lot of traditional businesses don’t really provide the possibility of becoming wealthy. If you have a coffee shop there is always going to be a limit to the number of coffee’s you can make in a day. There will always therefore be a limit on your earning potential. The internet removes this cap on your earning potential.
Once you have set up one online business you can outsource / pay someone else to run it for you. This could provide you with the opportunity to set up multiple other online businesses in order to generate real wealth. No wonder becoming an internet entrepreneur is so attractive.
You can work at generate an income online as and when you have any free time. There are no set hours which obviously fits well with having a young family.
Owning your own business means that you are in control of your own financial destiny. You can choose to work as and when it suits you rather than when it suits your boss.
