List of Stay-at-Home Jobs


Working at home may allow increased job flexibility, more time with your family or the ability to work how and when you please. Even if you do not consider yourself to be an entrepreneur, there are plenty of ways you can make money from home using your specific skill sets.

Add enrichment activities like helping children to learn to read and write or tutoring in order to address the educational needs of your children as well.


  • Freelance writing is an opportunity that most who have degrees in journalism, English or even communications can take advantage of. Freelance writers can start their own blog, or write for web-content producers or local newspapers.
