I decided to shake some things up on this blog. I am offering 12 days of resources for parents right here on Imperfectly Perfect Mommy! These resources are totally amazing and totally FREE!
I’m sure you are all aware that the holidays are upon us, as is the New Year.
What better time to start searching for ways to make money at home?
For those of you who do not know, I was a teacher in a Pre-K setting for the last 10 years. I loved my job, but after being asked to move to a new location I decided to look into something new.
I stumbled upon the world of freelance writing. Here I have found my passion of writing again, and begun to make some REAL MONEY AT HOME!
I honestly didn’t know opportunities like this were actually real or that they could be obtained by “ordinary” people like me!
I decided to share some of my research and resources I compiled while looking for some jobs I could do from home.
These are REAL work from home jobs that REAL MOMS can do!
These resources are a part of a 12 day series of holiday freebies I compiled just for you! Use them to maintain your sanity this holiday season, and to set your resolutions for 2019- whatever they may be!

Teach English as a Second Language
VIP Kid and Education Plus both allow you to work from home teaching English as a second language to children in China. The hours are extremely flexible which is perfect for mothers, and even teachers looking for a side hustle. They require you to have a Bachelor degree but it does NOT have to be in education. You also do not need a teaching certificate.
Start Your Own Subscription Service
Anyone at all can start a subscription box service. Although with all the overhead, and product- it can become quite expensive! Not to mention labor intensive.
However, do you have knowledge you could share? Do your friends ever come for you for advice on things like cooking, knitting, crafting, parenting, exercise routines…etc? You can create content and rent your knowledge out to people online with a website subscription creator like Sub Hub. This work from home job is something that literally anyone can do, and is almost pure profit!
Transcription is a work from home opportunity that has been around for quite some time! If you can listen to audio files and type them out, you will have no shortage of work. Lots of these opportunities do not even require past experience.
It also has no income limit the faster you can transcribe, the faster you can make money!
If this is something you are interested in… give one of these companies a try!
If you can write a cohesive sentence and have basic grammar skills, you can be a freelance writer. The internet is FULL of content, and someone has to write this content. As long as you are willing to put in the work to land your first few clients, you will have all the work you can handle!
I started getting serious about my writing at the end of November, and landed my first client in just TWO DAYS! By the middle of December, I was interviewing for a long-term position for a start-up company writing educational curriculum. The beauty of freelance writing is that there are so many niches and topics you can choose! I specialize in parenting, lifestyle and educational topics because that is something I enjoy! You can choose to write about health, cats, football, making money, or anything else you are passionate about!
I wrote a blog post on how I got started freelance writing, read it and decide if this luxurious career path is for you!
Although it may not be everyone’s dream to work in customer service, getting a job with a call center is one of the best and easiest ways to land an employee job at home.
An employee job means that you will actually be working for a company and not an independent contractor working for yourself. Employee jobs come with regular pay and often even benefits packages.
If you need reliable and regular paychecks, customer service is something you should definitely look into. The hours are also flexible and often the only requirements are a computer and high-speed internet.
