Freelance Jobs for Single Moms

These are great jobs for single moms because they allow for flexibility. The best part about it is you can start and make money right away. 

Freelance jobs offer what is exactly spelled out in the the word itself-FREEDOM! It's really up to you. This line of work really takes all the cliche remarks you hear from employers.

You need to have discipline, be self-motivated, and be able to deal with adversity. If you like the challenge of working for yourself, here's your chance.

Amazon Sellers

Many single moms dream of having their very own online store. This does’t have to be just a dream. However, instead of starting from scratch, you can start on Amazon.com.

You can also start with just one product. You can sell existing products or start your own brand. This route will allow you to learn about ecommerce if you don’t have the basics already.

There are new sellers starting out just like you will. Don't be intimidated you can do it. 

Design Shirts With Teespring 

I see a lot of my peers trying to break into the t-shirt business. It’s a tough market to make a decent living.

You should start out with a company that doesn’t charge a dime to get you started. Not only that, no inventory, no shipping headaches, and you can get your social media circle involved.

Teespring leverages the power of social media and relationships to get your product out there. You set a goal and make money when you reach that number. So what are you waiting for? The time is now.

Make Online Classes

When we think of jobs for single moms, it’s always that boring stuff everybody else is doing. Let me ask you one question. Do you have a skill that somebody else has asked to learn from you?

Well, I’m sure your cousin that has been begging for you to show them how to make your family-famous red-velvet cakes, isn’t the only person that interested.

In fact, a lot of people pay good money to learn how to do ordinary things everyday over the internet. You can check out Udemy, they also have a class to show you how to get started.

No excuses right?

Freelance Writer

There’s a misconception out there, it’s that these large websites write all their own material or have in-house writers. This can’t be further from the truth. 

They also hire freelancers to get stories. Do you have an English degree you never put to use? Really any degree, or good basic grammar skills will get you in the door.

The pay will be based on experience. The bigger and better your writing portfolio gets, you can charge more for your time. Some writers make six figures a year easily. Not easy to build it up to that however. This is great part time work.

Learn the ropes from people like Sophie and Enstine.

Webmaster

This is just a cool sounding word for having your own website. I’m a Webmaster, yay!! You can be also. These days, you don’t have to know anything about websites.

There’s so much material out there on this subject I won’t even get into it. I used SiteSell to launch this website and it’s one of the best programs you can stumble across.

It’s not as easy to be wildly successful so you will need help to get out to a great start.  Sitesell will help you from start to finish, and it’s affordable.

There are other programs out there but not too many that really work. You would be okay with Affilorama. I haven’t used this one personally, but I’m comfortable with all the information they have provided me for free.

Plus the person who created Affilorama is arguably the greatest affiliate marketer in the world. If you don’t know what that trm is don’t feel bad, I didn’t know either.

Social Media Manager

I do believe the stat is women spend way more time on the internet than men. They spend even more time on social media. So this is one of those jobs for single moms you need to take advantage of.

I haven’t begun to run a social media campaign for this website yet, so I won’t go into heavy details. Be that as it may, I do know where you can get the best information for becoming a Social media manger pro.

I'm not affiliated with this class at all. However, my research tells me that this is the best way to learn. I will be taking this class shortly to add to my internet arsenal of awesomeness. Well, maybe not that awesome but you get the point. I'll update y'all later.

Non-Freelance Jobs for Single Mothers

Maybe you can't go it alone. Maybe you're at a point in your life where you need structure. That's okay. There are many opportunities for this path also.

These jobs provide support in the form of people that are already succeeding in the field to assist newbies. You just have to try. 

Direct Selling

Direct selling has and always will be an amazing opportunity. I'll admit, I always thought the Mary Kay sellers were the weirdest people on earth.

After attending a meeting, I knew why they seemed weird. They're really a happy group of people. Believe it or not, genuinely happy people rub those that aren't used to being happy the wrong way. 

Anyhow, one of the ladies spoke with me after the meeting. She said the minute she took it serious her life changed for the best. All it took was throwing one party a week. 

I had no choice but to believe what she spoke. She drove off in one of those pink Cadillacs and the license plate read "A million", of course in a shortened version.

If this something you wish to explore, there are many direct selling websites that have a wealth of information waiting for you.

Cake Decorator

Bake goods are in right now. This is a very profitable sector that you can take advantage of right now.

If you don't have the skills, go bug grandma for those recipes and offer her something for her trouble.

I'm sure someone has been trying to get you in the kitchen quite some time now. That picture is from a friend that does this type of work.

Look at that masterpiece. Wouldn't you buy that for a birthday party? Definitely beats out Walmart cakes. 

Mentoring to Help Other Single Mothers get Jobs

Are you a professional? Do you know what it takes to get the coveted position already. However, you still get fed up with your career sometimes. 

You love your job but feel like it's a ceiling hovering over you, and you can do more. I know. Your'e right. I've heard a quote that stuck with me to this day.

Sometimes to get what you want, you have to give it away. I'm not going to say you can be a life coach, because I really don't even know what that is still.

However, you can definitely help someone put a resume together, practice interviews, and how to dress their best. People need help with this. 

I know because this is something I'm entertaining right now. If you beat me to it, I'll will have no bad blood. Just share your success with us. 

We're Waiting On you

So what will it be. Just know each path will have ups and downs. The only difference with a regular career, is you won't have any imposed limitations. 

You don't have to worry about getting promotions, are what your schedule is for the week. You can make your own schedule. Now that's freedom. That should be the end goal.

I'll leave you with this-don't make monetary. Envision what it would mean if you succeed at what it is you truly want to do. That could be spending more time with the kids, or taking a trip whenever you want. 

These types of goals are easier to visualize than just a big pile of money. They will also have more emotions behind them to help push you forward. However it goes, please let us in on your journey!
