Stay at home mom jobs used to have a bad rep mostly due to pre-Internet times. Many people still believe that these jobs consist of stuffing thousands of envelopes a day to make some money or becoming a sales consultant for cosmetics, driving around a pink Cadillac.
It’s just not true anymore. Honestly, I don’t think much envelope stuffing even happens these days since the dawning of the Internet. Direct mail marketing techniques are a waste of money when everyone goes online to find what they’re looking for.
Now think about it. Who would be better disciplined to take on a job that offers a flexible schedule, multi-tasking, and an opportunity to work at home? This is the reason that the topic of stay at home mom jobs is so hot right now. Work from home moms are a resilient and dedicated labor pool to hire from.
Moms looking for work are caught in a catch-22 (either choice seems to have a negative effect). After they send the kids to daycare, their net earnings deplete to practically nothing. Yet, if they don’t get back to work, the family won’t be able to survive. These moms are eager to work, but they need something that’s flexible.
Perhaps, this is the reason that stay at home mom jobs pop up all over the Internet. These real jobs need someone who will honestly dedicate some time and energy to his or her job, not someone looking for the next get-rich-quick gimmick.
Stay at home mom jobs that pay include:
- Paid Surveys – not a lot, but it sure will pay the electric bill and allow for some stress relief
- Affiliate Marketing
- Content Writing
