Let me say this first: Moms rule the world!

I might be a little biased because I am a work-at-home mom of two kids, and it is the best role of my life.

Being a mom is as demanding as it is rewarding. Apart from other daily needs, a stay-at-home mom surely has a greater need to earn money.

As an avid side hustler, I feel every mom should have a side gig for many reasons. It could be to make money or learn something new. The reasons are endless, and opportunities to do so are infinite.

Are side hustles good for stay-at-home moms?


I work at home in a remote job, manage a blogging business, started a new side hustle as a freelance travel writer, and dipped my feet into landscape photography. Just because you are a stay-at-home mom does not mean you can not have a side business you can start at home. There are ways of making money and saving money from the comfort of your own home.

So, I do have a ‘little’ experience in side hustling, and let me tell you why it’s great to have a side gig for moms.

Balance Family And Work

This is a big one. Side hustles are a perfect way to balance your work and family life compared to a full-time job. Imagine leaving kids at childcare all day or having kids at home with a full-time online job. I know, it sounds impossible.

Side hustles.

Side hustles are pretty flexible. For example, online tutoring jobs are an excellent fit for moms. Many of these teaching jobs have super convenient working times and pay quite well.

Loads of side gigs suit your lifestyle as a mom, and you can do them in your own time. For me, it is always when my kids go to sleep or before they wake up. Perfect, isn’t it?!

Potential Home-Based Business

,If you want to know about someone who started a side hustle and made it as a home-based business, then I am a perfect example of that. I started side hustling as a blogger almost two years ago, and now my blogging business earns me a full-time income from home. There are a lot of people who have incorporated blogging into their businesses. Even stay-at-home moms. If you want to have a go at this, do it! All you’ll need to start with, whether a blog or website is an idea and a host like certa hosting to make your site live and ready to read.

Meet Financial Needs

Being a stay-at-home mom does not mean you cannot contribute to your family finances. I firmly know that, whatever is your reason to be a stay-at-home parent, you can earn money from home.

I have done it, and you can do it too.

Earning money on the side is the biggest reason so many stay-at-home parents are taking up side gigs now. They let you earn money on your terms.

Taking up a full-time job would mean I see my kids less. I am sure many moms face this dilemma if they are considering working.
