I currently work from home, I work with Lionbridge rating google searches and webpages. There is also Appen. These are two that let you work around your own schedule which is great. There is also Upwork for freelance stuff. I am part of two legit work from home groups on FB which is how I found out about all this stuff.

Blogging or freelancing online. Out of all the ways I have researched and tried to make money from home, these two are by far the realist ways to bring in a full-time income from home!

I have done some work on UpWork, It's hard to get hired though. My sister was able to get hired by a Plus client and has lots of work now. I may try Poshmark.

This would be my dream job!  I would love to hear more about how you got started. 

I got into managing social media accounts for small businesses! It took a while to learn how to navigate the whole process, but worth it! I also started freelancing as a content writer for blogs, providing lifestyle and product photography for small companies, etc. 

Good luck!

What is this sorcery you all are talking about? You mean there are actual legitimate ways to make money at home? Where have I been?!

I second this!

Freelancing is the best thing that fits your schedule with your kids. If you're creative, you can do something with design. Or if you're a programmer there are so many remote opportunities.

Are you looking for a work from home job or just something to earn a few bucks here or there?

How did you get started with hobby photography? I have an Etsy shop but it is so saturated I rarely get any sales.

I do a lot of random things. Hobby photography for one- people can't always afford super expensive pictures so if you can get good at it and just charge $25 or so for an hours worth of pictures and do a couple hours a week it adds up. If you are crafty then selling craft items on Etsy  . I have recently started Up Work so I feel I cant give an honesty review yet as I have only done it for a few weeks.

I'm trying to freelance full time (in marketing). It's a struggle to line up enough work, but I'm hoping it will get easier with time.

Kids clothes sell pretty well on eBay. Especially if they are a good brand and in good condition. It's one of their top selling items. I have heard about Upwork and Fiverr, but it takes a while to build your profile and gain traction.

Hi Sasha,


You are doing my dream job!!  Good for you!!

I got into managing social media accounts for small businesses! It took a while to learn how to navigate the whole process, but worth it! I also started freelancing as a content writer for blogs, providing lifestyle and product photography for small companies, etc. 

Good luck!

Thanks for sharing! I'm going to look into this - I have been interested in learning more!

Check out Lauren Golden's Free Mama Movement - she has a facebook group and a program (that you have to pay for) but free videos on Youtube to teach you how to be a Freelance Virtual Assistant. I've been using Upwork for a little while, too, but it definitely takes a little time to comb through the jobs and find things that are legit.

Have you considered nannying for another family that will let you take your little(s) with you?

If you are a teacher check out VIPKids. I know people who do it though the hours are not super convenient.

I found a lot of legitimate work from home jobs on Pinterest. There are alot of options for full time or part time work on those blog posts with decent pay depending on your experience.

VIpKid is where you can teach kids in China English!

I agree with Upwork. There are some great opportunities on there. I also worked for some companies that allowed remote work. Apple has At-Home Advisors but you have to be on the phones so the kids can't be around. I worked for Conduent for a year and they were great because it was all data entry. There were no phone calls and I could log on and off as I needed for my kids as long as I completed all the hours for the day. Virtual assistants and freelancing is pretty much where it's at.
