Are you a mom looking for something to do? Maybe some extra cash on the side? You might be surprised by how many opportunities are available. In this blog post, you will learn some of the best side gigs that probably no one tells you about. Continue reading to get a better insight!

Start Online Trading 

The best side gig for moms no one tells you about is to start online trading. In this gig, you can be your boss and work from the comfort of your home. The internet offers many free tutorials on how to trade stocks or invest in Forex Trading which makes it a great opportunity for stay-at-home mothers or college students who want to earn money without leaving the house. 

Many websites allow people to practice before they trade with real money, so be sure to read the instructions on how this works first! Then, keep reading for some general guidelines about picking stocks.

Start a YouTube Channel 

You don’t have to be a professional video editor or work with expensive equipment to start your own YouTube channel. You can use an app on your phone or even iMovie and edit as you go! 

It’s vital that the content is engaging, educational, and something people want to watch. If you are passionate about what you do, it will come across in your videos, and people will be interested. 

If you’re not sure what topic to post about, talk with friends and family members to find out what they want. From there, you can start a blog or social media account dedicated solely to your YouTube channel

Write Blogs or Transcribe 

Moms who enjoy writing blogs or articles should consider transcription services. Transcription is the process of converting a written document into audio or video form and you can do it remotely, which makes it ideal for moms who want to work from home. 

Working as an online tutor, writing articles on freelance sites, transcribing podcasts for clients, transcribing notes from meetings are other ways that moms can make money with their skills. These jobs allow you to work at home on your schedule while still utilizing the tools you already have available.

Become a Virtual Assistant 

Virtual assistants help their employers with tasks like email, social media management, or event planning. If you’re a mom and are excellent at multitasking skills like time management, communication, and organization, then this side gig is perfect for you! 

It’s flexible as you can often work from home or anywhere that has internet access. And it’s easy to get started, with a bit of training and practice. This side gig suits all kinds of moms: working full-time, stay-at-home parents, or mothers looking for an extra income stream. 

Your side job doesn’t have to make a lot of money, and your primary role as mom is still more important, but having another source of income will help you feel less stressed about the cost of living and take some pressure off your spouse if they are the major breadwinner in your family.


I'm a mother of 2 who likes to get involved in too much! Besides writing here I started a non-profit, I'm on the PTO board, very active in my community and volunteer in the school. I enjoy music, reading, cooking, traveling and spending time with my family. We just adopted our 3rd cat and love them all!
