Stay at Home Mom Jobs To LOVE
Why Should You Love What You Do?
This can be answered in a few different ways.
1. Everyone should love their job
I am SO serious about this. If you are not loving what you do, why are you doing it? You are staying home with your kids because you love them and want to be present. So your job should not take away from that. It should be something that can be an escape for you. Something that you are doing because you WANT to. Not because you feel like you have to.
Everyone has something that they can turn into a job, you just have to figure out what it is.
2. You want to be with your kids
Spending time with your kids is one of the most important things you can do. Being able to take them to the park on a whim, is an incredible blessing that stay at home moms have. So your job needs to be able to allow that to happen.
Your job also needs to be something that you want to do, or you WON’T do it. At one point I was considering medical coding because you can do it from home and it makes decent money. But I knew that I wasn’t going to enjoy it. And I don’t like to do things I don’t enjoy. I KNEW I would quit.
Make sure that you don’t set yourself up for failure by choosing to do something that seems like the “right” or “easy” choice just because it pleases someone else.

Ideas For Stay At Home Mom Jobs
I will tell you what I have found that works. And I’ll be honest, yours may look different than mine! The whole point of this is to take what YOU love and make it into something you can do from home and make money on.
I have always enjoyed writing and reading. For most of my life I have had being a writer in the back of my mind. But writer’s don’t make much money. Writing a book is hard. Then you need someone to publish it and sell it.. people have to buy it. I just said that even though I loved it, it was never going to be my career.
And I was okay with that. Because I have SO many other things that I love!
- coaching people
I can seriously keep going, but you get the idea. So I made my list and I worked. Once I had kids though, it all changed. I needed to figure out what I REALLY wanted to do.
Not only for me, but for my kids.
I believe that you should set an example for your kids whenever you can. Because they will learn that things are the way they are based on what YOU show them. So show them good things!
- A strong parental unit that talks to each other
- A happy marriage with mutual trust
- Parents that love their jobs
- Women and men both working together to take care of chores and responsibilities
Teach your child that they should expect to be happy in their chosen profession. Because you spend too much time working to not enjoy it.
You can sell pretty much anything. Services or goods. So think about what you are good at. Write it out on your worksheet. If you are good at it, then consider if you ENJOY it or not.
If you do not enjoy it, take it off the list. SERIOUSLY. Just because you are good at making jewelry, doesn’t mean that you want to do it every single day for the rest of your life.

I know people always rave about how much money you can make blogging… blah blah..
But I’m going to be SUPER honest with you. Writing a blog (what most people just think is a website) is HARD work. You have to do a ton of things you never even would have thought about before.
Designing graphics, writing code, placing ads, signing up for affiliate accounts.. does it sound like I am speaking a different language yet?
But I will also be honest about this… When something that YOU built, from absolutely nothing, makes you money for the first time… there is nothing like it. Even if it is only $0.03.
So if you love to write, inform people, or share knowledge, I am SURE there is something that you could write a blog on. Because you can blog about just about anything you are passionate about!
And you CAN make a full-time income from blogging. You just have to be willing to put in the time and effort to build the foundation. But once you do, it is YOURS.
Enjoy What You Do
Every.Single.Person. Should LOVE what they do. And that includes you. SO take the time to find a way to make your passion into your paycheck. Because once you do, you will NEVER look back!
