Home Agency

You can start an agency from home and be the middleman to provide catered solutions for your clients. Some home agency ideas include a tuition agency, which works by matching instructors with students. You can apply the same concept in other industries, such as matching caregivers with the elderly, or by finding babysitters for working parents.


Blogging can be a lucrative career if you are able to connect with your audience and create engaging and valuable content on a consistent basis. Blogging is a great business idea if you are good at writing and able to create interesting conversations with others.

You may not earn money right away, but you can slowly build your audience and gain a loyal following. You can start to monetize your blog once your traffic starts to pick up, by selling ad space and guest posts for a certain fee.

Home Baking

You can start a home baking business if you are good at baking, but be sure to check with the laws regarding food businesses in your country and state. Once you have checked on whether it is legal and safe to do so, you can start selling cookies and cakes from the comfort of your home.

Customized Gift Store

If you are good at handicrafts, you can set up your own personalized gift stores and sell your products on Etsy, and use Pinterest to promote your store. You can customize gifts for baby showers to children’s birthday parties, if you have a flair for creativity.


You can become a certified bookkeeper and start a bookkeeping business from home, which has a low start-up cost and you don’t really need an education, though it is usually preferred by clients if you have some bookkeeping or accounting background.

Choosing a niche for your bookkeeping services is just as important as choosing a niche for any other business, and you can choose an industry based on your interests, such as working with design firms.

Beauty Services

If you have the necessary training and qualifications, you can start a home spa business and provide beauty services, with clients coming to your home to receive treatments. You will need to have a room specially dedicated to provide your services, and ensure that hygiene practices are up to standard. You can even upsell your clients with beauty products by selling it to them at retail value.

Virtual Assistant

You can start your own business as a freelance virtual assistant and provide various services for entrepreneurs and business owners. If you don’t want to be the one providing the virtual services, you can start a virtual assistant agency and connect virtual assistants with business owners.

Travel Planner

You can work remotely as a travel planner by helping others plan their vacation, and you don’t really need any background as a travel agent. What you will need is knowledge on various travel locations, so that you can advise people and help them with their itinerary.

Video Editing Services

If you have some knowledge of editing videos, you can start a video editing business as a freelancer. If you want to run an entire video editing business with a whole production team, you can recruit employees and work with companies.

Marketing Consultant

Being a marketing consultant provides you with great flexibility, which can be easily done from home. You can provide these services as a freelancer, or you can run a consultation company by outsourcing solutions to your clients.

If you work from home as a freelancer providing all these services that I have mentioned, you can make a decent salary. However, the downside is that you will need to be constantly available and if you take a day off, so will your earnings.

If you hire some staff and turn these services into a business and start delegating, this means that your business can still run even when you take a day off.

The whole idea of starting a business from home is to have flexibility and to free up the time that you have, so that you don’t need to work a 9 to 5 job or be constantly spending all your hours at work.

Take these small business ideas, and try to think of ways you can turn it into a source of recurring revenue for yourself, by removing yourself as the freelancer and implementing a successful business strategy so that your business can run even when you are not available.

Running a successful business from home is not just about making money, but being able to manage your time effectively with the right systems and strategy. Ultimately, the goal as moms is to work smarter and not harder, so that we can spend time with our loved ones and provide for them at the same time, without being overworked.
