Start a blog
This has to be my favourite business model when you’re just starting out.
It’s because you don’t have to have a cemented idea of what your business will look like. You can start before you really feel ready and create content and start building your audience now. Then, once you niche into what you want to focus on you can promote affiliate products, create your own products or sell services. The possibilities are endless!

Become a Virtual Assistant
A virtual assistant is someone that assists other business owners in their businesses but does it remotely. This is a great stay at home mom job as you can work around the kids and do the hours that suit your family.
The other great thing about becoming a virtual assistant is that offering a service will often see you get paid quicker than something like a blog.

Become a social media manager
This is the way that I got started with making money online. I started it when I was about 35 weeks pregnant with my second child. I had been looking for ways to make money from home and kind of fell into it.
As a social media manager, your tasks will vary but the could include managing Facebook, Instagram or Pinterest profiles. You could create graphics and captions for businesses or manage their Facebook group. There are so many ways to help other businesses with social media. It’s also great because you often charge a monthly retainer and retain your clients for more long term work. That way you don’t have to continually chase clients!
If you have a knack for social media and love helping out others, this a great stay at home mom job. To learn more about it, then read this post.
Start a network marketing business
I know that network marketing often gets a bad wrap but it’s definitely something to consider. It’s a great way to get started with a small amount of start-up money and it doesn’t require much money ongoing (more most businesses, I do believe there are some out there that are on the more expensive end).
The other great thing about a network marketing business is that the products or services have already been created as well as the promotional material and sales systems.
If network marketing is done well, it can be a very profitable business model. Just make sure you research the company you want to work with well and remember that you use network marketing as an additional income stream, it doesn’t have to be the sole income generator in your business.
