When my husband and I decided to take the very uncertain leap toward a one-income household, it was one of the most exhilarating, albeit SCARY, moves in our adventure together. At that time, making money from home with side hustles wasn’t something I had even entertained.

Just a hop, skip, and a jump later, we had three kiddos, and money was tight. I knew I had to do something to prevent daycare for my kids and returning to a career that I no longer liked.

When my desire to balance making money with being a stay-at-home mom became more of a “must” rather than an “I’d like to,” I quickly discovered how easy it was to make money while I had the kids in tow.

If you’re looking to make money at home while your little one’s nap, play, or at any point during your day, below is an awesome list of 20 legit side hustles moms like you can dive right into, all from the comfort of your home!

1. Transcription Side Hustle

Becoming a transcriptionist is a great way to make some serious stay-at-home cash. As a transcriptionist, you’ll listen to audio or video clips and transcribe them into text. Many transcription jobs are flexible with timing but check their descriptions to ensure that it will fit in with your schedule, and you’ll need to take a brief typing test to qualify.

Rev and TranscribeMe are two of the more popular sites out there and offer great options when looking for transcription work!

2. Cambly

As a stay-at-home mama, sometimes you just want to have a conversation with another adult. What if you could get paid to talk with other adults from around the world?
