Most moms find out very quickly how hard it is to work a conventional 9-5 when you are raising young children. I myself have struggled with finding just the right combination of paycheck and flexibility. So I decided to do some research and figure out the best careers for moms with little ones are!
Each of these had to have the right mix of Financial gain and flexibility, however not all of them are for everyone! As someone who has done most of them I can speak from experience in telling you, you have to find what works for you and makes you happy, no matter how much money or flexibly it offers.
Your own business: Finding a niche and using to bring in income for your family is a tried and true way to be fulfilled and set your own hours. Don’t get me wrong it can be very difficult but if you can manage the rewards are huge.
Writing jobs: these can be flexible but you have to hunt for the ones that pay out. However if you work it like a job and find good clients you can really make some good money while the kids sleep!
Childcare; This one is not for the faint of heart and takes the special kind of person! However it got me through my kids baby stages when i couldn’t bare the thought of leaving them with anyone else. And it pays great !
Commercial Cleaning: This job may not pay all that great if you work for some one else but if you can get into some contract work you can make some good money. The thing I like about it, is that you can go in late at night or early in the morning when your spouse is home and minus the day care cost right out of it!
Teaching: you work when they have school and your off when they are off! however these jobs are decreasing by the day and we all know they don’t pay all that great.
Home Party Biz: if you can work these you can make good money! Don’t be fooled into the “only a few hours a week line” though! You have to treat them like a career to see the big bucks.
Health Care : I picked these jobs because the moms I know that work in Health Care really are some of the most fulfilled women I know. Not only do they love their jobs, but the often do shift work so that they can be with their kids more, and it seems to be a very nice mix. Plus these job will be around for years to come, not to mention the benefits of being on with one of the hospitals.
So there you have it You know they say if you love what you do you wont work a day in your life!0
