Want to be Stay at home mom?

With rising costs and increased learning needs, financing our children's education is no longer a simple walk in the park. Discuss with other parents about how they are managing their finances to cope with their expenses.

Hi mummies,

Any ideas to earn extra income so that we can quit our day job to take care our children at home?

R u good at cooking?

My mum used to cook for our neighbors while saying at home to take care of us.

She would also help to nanny other kids to supplement earnings to our family.

You can try to provide Before and After school care service at your home for 1-2 kids. Any primary schools very near your house, where you can pick and send the kids to school? This is a good selling point for your Service.
Or look for some part time jobs which allows to work from home. There are quite some adverts in the papers.

There are both online and offline work for Stay at home mom.
It all depends on your preference, skillsets, time availability, expectations etc.

For online work, it can be something as simple as doing surveys, research, and similar type of work. These tends to be low pay or do not pay very much.

For more complex online task like coding (writing codes), web design, writing (articles), copy writing, web development, mobile development, online marketing etc. , these can get reasonable pay or some even very well paid.

For offline work, again it can range from simple work like giving out flyers, manning shops, simple data entry, admin work, which do not give very much.

For a higher pay work, it can be more technical work, like IT, Engineering, or similar. Or even trainers or facilitators can be paid decent amount which will depends on the length or duration of work for that day or week. Even private tuition can start off on the decent scale, and move up to be highly in demand and high pay.

So it is about building up the expertise, preference, skillsets, time availability, expectations.

The choice is up to you. Just don't go for those quick/fast money, which tends to be scams and con jobs.

Don't understand why you post this when u already know what you want to do.

It's very misleading n I can only conclude you are doing advertising for your mentors.

Just a word of warning in case someone is naive enough to click to the websites promoted above.
Please check the site's legitimacy - seems very dubious to me. :skeptical:

Basically, that is a form of marketing.

It is about creating interest, and generating replies to gauge the interest level.

However, it was exposed as the question was simply answered with the affiliate marketing link itself.

And the author, together with the mentors are shown in the link.

It is not a scam, but a form of marketing.
