If you are a stay-at-home mom with small children you may be wondering if there are any jobs that you can do from home without having to be on the phone. These kinds of jobs appeal not just to stay-at-home moms or dads but to a lot of people who have gotten burned out on customer service and call center at-home jobs or those who may not have the patience or skills. When you are looking for work at home, some companies require that you have a quiet home environment to be able to successfully conduct your task or assignment.
But that is almost impossible when you have small children or a newborn baby that requires your full time and attention.
It seems as though the only way to get around this would be not to work (which is not an option), to work when they are asleep, or have someone else watch them. If you are currently facing this dilemma, I have some work-from-home jobs that you can do that do not have these requirements. There are even some jobs you can work when you want or at your own pace or schedule.
- TheSmartCrowd formerly known as Virtualbee – Is a legit data entry company that will allow you to work when you want any time of the day or night. There are no schedules to keep and the work is flexible. You can pick which assignments you want to work on each day depending upon the workload and availability. The pay is per task but it is possible to earn somewhere around $5 to $6 per hour. It is definitely not full-time pay but it is a way for you to earn extra money from home in your spare time and still be able to tend to your children because you can log off whenever you need to and come back to your work when you are ready. They pay every week as long as you have $30 in your account. There is a small typing test required but if you have trouble with this I have a video that has tips to help you pass the test.
- Textbroker – This company pays every week also. You get paid to write articles online for this company. You do not have to have any experience doing this although you will be required to take a test beforehand to check your grammar and spelling. You pick from a pool of articles that need to be written on. You can only pick out one article at a time and you will have 24 hours to complete it after you accept your assignment. If you cannot complete it within that period of time, it will go back into their database. But you can work as much or as little as you want. They pay every Friday through your Paypal account as long as you have earned $10.
- Fiverr – This is not necessarily a work-at-home job but it is a way to earn steady extra income from home. In fact, you can even complete a gig in less than 5 minutes for $5 using this site. There are other companies that are similar to Fiverr where you sign up to complete online gigs or tasks for someone in exchange for $5. They do take a percentage of your earnings so your $5 gig will end up earning you $4 after Fiverr takes their cut. Some of the gigs you could provide for others would be to design a logo for someone, sing them a song, make a video, or do a variety of unusual things. If you get enough clients you could even start your own business doing gigs for others and sell your services on your own blog or website.
