I am a mom. It’s my full-time job. But I am also a working professional. A lot of people don’t understand how someone can do both, but with a healthy balance, any mother can work from home, make a steady income, and still be there for her kids. I personally work as an Usborne Books & More independent consultant, selling children’s books to make a difference in the lives of families around the United States, but there are several other opportunities for easy home based jobs for moms. Check out this list of the 11 best ones I have discovered as I have built a career working from home while raising my kids.

Medical transcriptionists often work for different hospitals or doctor’s offices by writing up and digitizing either hand-written documents or spoken notes. Usually, the only requirement for medical transcriptionists are a computer, desk, and access to audio, and nthe hours are often flexible, but it depends on the company and the job.
