Side hustles don’t have to make your life harder and busier, you can find a hustle that can easily be added to your daily routine. 

Why Consider a Side Hustle? A side hustle can be a great way to earn extra income while balancing their family and other responsibilities. It can also provide a sense of fulfillment and allow you to pursue your passions outside of your regular job.

Side Hustle Ideas for Moms:

  1. Freelance Writing: If you have a knack for writing, consider freelancing as a writer for blogs, websites, or publications. This as been very lucrative for me. It helped me pay a large portion of my sons private school fees. It can take some time to get going but there are so many platforms out there that you can look for positions. 
  2. Virtual Assistant: Many businesses and entrepreneurs need help with administrative tasks such as email management, scheduling, and social media management.
  3. Tutoring: If you have expertise in a particular subject, consider offering tutoring services to students. In our homeschool community people are always looking for tutors. The best part about this is that it can largely be done online. 
  4. Handmade Crafts: If you’re crafty, consider selling handmade items on platforms like Etsy or at local craft fairs. If you don’t have a lot of free time to take on something, this could work. You can crochet while watching TV or waiting for kids to finish sports etc. 
  5. Pet Sitting: If you love animals, consider offering pet sitting or dog walking services in your neighborhood. If TikTok is anything to be believed, this can be really lucrative in some parts.
  6. Consulting: If you have professional expertise in a particular field, consider offering consulting services to businesses or individuals. The biggest benefit of this is that you can charge well for these consulting services and you decide the hours. 
  7. Online Courses: If you have knowledge or skills to share, consider creating and selling online courses. Social media will have you believe that you can make millions doing this, I think you can but it does take time. It is a great passive income though once you have everything set up and running. 


Tips for Starting a Side Hustle:

  1. Start Small: Begin with a side hustle that you can manage alongside your current responsibilities.
  2. Set Goals: Define what you want to achieve with your side hustle, whether it’s earning extra income or pursuing a passion.
  3. Market Your Services: Use social media and other online platforms to market your side hustle and attract clients or customers. Using your existing networks can also be beneficial. 
  4. Manage Your Time: Balance your side hustle with your family and other commitments by managing your time effectively.


A side hustle might seem like adding more onto your already full plate and in many ways it is but if you find something you enjoy and are good at, it can be just what you need. I have tried a range of different things over the years, some have stuck others have served their purpose.
