It can be a bitter pill to swallow as an independent woman, leaving a good career to focus on your kids. Not only do we lose our financial independence, but we can also go crazy if we don’t have an outlet to focus on whilst we spend our days at home. Picking something that can both earn you money and keep you from going stir-crazy at home is a great idea. I know lots of stay at home moms who now earn more than they did in their careers thanks to a successful side hustle. Here are just some of the ways they do so.
This is a side hustle that requires very little set up cost. As long as you have a computer and the internet, you can write online. Writing for blogs is one popular method; publishing e-books is another. The easiest way to get started is to pick a topic you are interested in, write an article on something you love and then check you haven’t accidentally copied anyone else’s writing by using this website. Next, send it to a blog that is related to your topic and if they like it, they are likely to pay you to write more.
I know of people who earn 6-figure salaries writing content for websites. It is a massive industry.
