Last updated on March 23rd, 2019

How To Make Money As A SAHM

Being a SAHM is not everyone’s cup of tea, but if you’ve been considering it don’t let money stop you.

I’ve been SAHM or work at home Mom for 6 years now.

So, if you’ve been wondering if it is actually possible to make money and stay at home, I am proof that it absolutely is!

There are a ton of great SAHM jobs on the market and plenty of ways to work from home. You just have to know where to find them.

Which is what inspired me to write this post. One of the most popular problems I see and read bout in my baby group forums deals with How to make money and be a SAHM.

These are new and even second, third-time Moms, who want to transition out of the workforce and change to SAHM status,  but just can’t afford to go one income. I can empathize with them completely and I am always one of the first people to comment on a thread like this.

I love being able to say “Hey! I work from home and I get to be a SAHM. My job is flexible, non-phone and it pays there are a ton of ways to work from home!” NO – I do not work in direct sales! I work a legitimate W-2 paying job with no schedule, and it’s great!

A Brief Blurb About My SHAM Work At Home Life

In 2011 I get pregnant with our first child, Jade. I could not stand the idea of putting her in daycare so I decided to start researching how to make money from home. My significant other did not make enough money alone for me to be a full-time SAHM. In order for me to make my dream of being a SAHM a reality I knew I had to find a way to work from home.

So, that’s what I did. Around 6 months pregnant with Jade I started researching how to make money and different ways to work from home. It took me about 3-4 months to find something that fit me, and I am still doing that same thing today, 6 years and 2 kids later.

I needed a job with no phone, no set schedule and tons of flexibility. I found that in Search Engine Evaluation.
