Getting Started as a Work-at-Home Mom 1

Recommended Posts

If you're considering trying to join the ranks of successful work-at-home moms who make money while staying home, you probably have some questions. You might be wondering where to find work-at-home jobs that pay well and how to avoid work-at-home scams. You may even be wondering if you would like being a work-at-home mom.

The first step to joining the ranks of successful work-at-home moms is not finding a job or starting a business. It is taking a long, hard look at yourself, your family, and your resume, and deciding whether being a work-at-home mom is what you want.

You'll need to take into consideration whether you have the personality traits to work from home, what you will gain from it, and what you might have to give up. Below are four steps to help you get started on your journey to becoming a successful work-at-home mom. 

01  What's the Right Career Path for You?

There are many careers paths for work-at-home moms. These include:

Telecommute the job you already have

Become a consultant or freelancer

Start your own business

Find a new telecommuting job in your field of expertise 

Dive into something entirely different

Whether you're in the workplace now or you're already a stay-at-home mom, the best place to start is with your own resume. If you are currently employed, can you negotiate a flexible work schedule that includes working from home?

If you've already left the workforce, look back at your last job. Network with your former co-workers. They may know of openings or freelance work that could be done from home. Search national job listings for that type of work with "telecommute," "remote," or "work at home" as additional keywords.

If your skill set or current career is not a good match for working at home, consider breaking out into a new field. Online learning is one approach. Starting a home business is another. If you do opt for a new career, keep in mind that you may need to hone your skills in a traditional workplace before becoming a home-based worker.
