Are you a stay-at-home mom looking for some extra money? Well, there are so many business opportunities out there for single mothers, the only problem is how to find them. If you’re struggling with finding the right business opportunity, we’re going to help you out. Here are a couple ideas to turn your free time into real money!

Teach English via Skype

If English is your mother tongue, you can take advantage of that fact and earn some money. In today’s world, English is ‘lingua franca’. Without having at least a basic knowledge of English, you just can’t hope for big success in business.

This is the reason why a huge number of people from non-English speaking countries are looking for tutors to help them out learn this language the right way. And with apps like Skype, you don’t have to be in the same place as them. Instead, you can teach them English from the comfort of your home.


You might have a particular skill that you could cash in by doing projects on the internet. For example, if graphic design has been your passion, you can find lots of projects on sites like UpWork or Freelancer.

If, on the other hand, writing has been your passion, you can look for your fortune on sites like iWriter. Actually, this site might be perfect for single moms, as it gives them absolute freedom. How it works is that there’s a list of articles that need to be written. If there’s a topic you like, you just start working on it!
