Seven Side Hustles For Moms
If you have the gift of gab then think about a direct sales business. Products like cosmetics, chocolates, candles, lingerie, or Tupperware are popular items that will sell well when you get a group of ladies together with some great food, beverages and free samples of your product!

I don’t know about you but when I’m around friends, food, wine and a catalog of products I like I can go to town!
Sell Your Crafts
If you’re crafty why not consider selling your items on sites like Etsy. Etsy is a site where you can sell your handmade items. You’ll find just about everything there. From jewelry to homemade chocolate it’s the place to showcase your craftiness.
I know it sounds old school but I can’t tell you how many times I’ve scrambled around looking for a good seamstress to hem up a pair of pants or fix Marisa’s costumes for the dance team.
If you’re good with a needle and thread why not make some extra money on the side with your sewing talents.
Become A Notary
Everyone needs a notary and becoming one is about a three-step process depending on where you live. Most states will require you purchase the necessary bond and seal, fill out an application and pay a fee.
Prepare Income Tax Returns
If you think people who prepare income tax returns make money only part of the year that is a huge misconception. There are businesses that require monthly or quarterly services.
The average course takes about 10 weeks to complete so it won’t take long to start making money in this field.
I know that term is more used for teens but if you can help other moms out by taking care of their kids it’s a win-win situation for everyone. I mean, you already have childcare experience, right?
Keep in mind though there are other responsibilities that come with babysitting so make sure you think things through carefully and thoroughly. And don’t take on more kids than you can care for or that’s required by your state’s law.
