If you are a stay-at-home mom and you are looking to find some extra income, starting a home business might be a great idea. In fact, 52% of the businesses in USA are run from home. Many famous businesses were actually started by moms at their home. Julie Aigner-Clark (Baby Einstein) and Debbi Fields (Debbi) are among the famous moms who started their home businesses which later became top brands. But which businesses are perfect for the home environment? Here are a couple of our suggestions.

Child Day Care

If you are already staying at home to look after your kid, why not put some extra effort in it and make a home childcare. This can be a great business opportunity for stay-at-home mom. A home environment is perfect for this type of business. Still, if you this is the idea you are going to opt for, you will have to comply local regulations such as minimum space requirements per child and number of employees per child. You will also have to get many supplies for your childcare. Cribs, playpens and toys are something you cannot start this business. Also, there are many regulations about the meals you will also have to get informed about.


Blogging sure is one of the things you can do from your home. And you can even make money by doing it. There are many stay-at-home moms who started blogging about fashion and style and made quite a lot of money from it. If you are good at writing and a topic or a hobby you know much about this is a perfect business for you. The only thing you will need is a laptop and some inspiration. Once your website becomes popular, you can earn money by advertising some other businesses. You can use social media to get more traffic to your blog.

House Flipping

House flipping is a process of buying properties, investing in their renovations and selling them at bigger prices. What makes it perfect for a home business is that the most important step in this business is finding the right property to buy. Of course, the list of the homes that are for sale can be found online and you can do all the research from your laptop. Also, this business does not require a lot of staff nor a large office. You will only need enough money to start and some skill in decorating. This is a great business idea. Just make sure you spend some time learning about flipping houses before you actually start your business.

Online Marketplace

If you are a stay-at-home mom and have a lot of clutter that you need to get rid of, this is a perfect home business for you. You can start selling at eBay, Amazon or Etsy at the beginning. If you develop a successful business out of it or have too many clutter to sell, you can actually start your own website and sell there. You can also start looking for bargains and resell them for much higher price. This is something many stay-at-home parents do, and can turn out quite successful.
Whichever business you chose, make sure you check all the regulations about it and that everything is legal. Stick with your idea, put a lot of effort in it and you will surely develop a successful business.

Your advice sounds good. However, blogging may not pay, and house flipping needs investment. The real estate values fluctuate and this business is risky.

I agree those options are too risky. Wouldn't it be great, if someone could come along some day that is actually "earning" money consistently, and sharing precise instructions on how to go about making some real cash online. There are literally millions of writers filling cyberspace as virtual signposts, telling the reader about some or other person making money doing this or that. Present party excluded.
