8 Side Hustles for Moms

Whether you are a stay at home mom or a working mom, I think we can all agree that we would love to find a way to earn extra money whenever we can. 

Most of the time, it’s harder for us to find things we can do while we have our children with us, but rest assured that there are MANY side hustles out there that you could do even while home with your little ones.

Below you will find tried and true side hustles for moms:

Virtual Assistant 

Get paid to handle emails, data entry, and other administrative tasks for clients. While you can build your own clientele, there are also many companies out there that are always hiring for VAs no matter the experience you may or not have. 


Do you have a bunch of stuff that just sits in your closet or storage collecting dust? Snap some pics and upload them to the many selling sites that are out there to earn extra income. My favorite platform in particular is Poshmark. It makes selling new or used things SO EASY. Download the app and for a limited time, get $10 by using my code ONEBADMADRE.

Ad Rater 

This is by far the easiest side hustle I’ve ever had. There are companies that will pay you to rate ads that pop up while you’re scrolling through social media. All you need is a Facebook or Instagram profile for most of these gigs to get paid. Lionbridge or Appen have both been great companies to rate for that are pretty much always hiring. 

Mom’s Helper

I know this one seems like a no brainer but most moms probably don’t think about helping other mom’s with their daily chores. You would be surprised the number of moms who need someone to clean, do laundry, meal prep, or even get their children to and from after school activities for them. This one in particular would be a great side hustle for a stay at home mom or a mom with a flexible schedule. 

Start a Blog

This one is not going to make you money right away. As a matter of a fact, you’ll most likely spend money before you make any. However, from experience I have been able to build an extra side income from blogging. Whether you sell ad space, write sponsored posts, or use your blog as a portfolio to get paid writing gigs elsewhere; the possibilities are endless which makes this my top favorite side hustle. Start a blog with as little as $3.95/mo using my favorite hosting company, SiteGround.


I know so many talented moms who have turned their crafting hobbies into full time gigs. If you can sew, draw, paint, or build; this is the side hustle for you. Sites like Etsy and even Facebook Marketplace have made selling crafts easier than ever.  


This is one that can be a little tricky to do while your kids are up and running around, but it’s a great side hustle to do during nap time or after the kids have went to bed. There are many ways to get started as a transcriptionist but one of my favorites is Rev.com. All you need is a good pair of headphones and a laptop to get started. What I like about Rev is that you can literally log on whenever you have the time to complete tasks. 

Freelance Writer

If you enjoy writing and believe you can produce some great pieces, this is the side hustle for you. Although this one is a little bit harder to get into as you really need to build a clientele in order to get steady work, it’s still one that could potentially replace full time work once you get the hang of it. One of my favorite mom bloggers, Elna Cain has some great tips on getting into this business.
