Do we have a deal?
Let’s get started, OK?
1) Start A Mommy Blog
Starting a blog is at the top of my list as the best work at home jobs for 2020.
I started my first blog ever in 2012.
At the time, I had no idea what the heck a blog was or how powerful of a tool this was.
Furthermore, I was even more confused about how to make money with a blog.
Fast- forward to 2020, and I’ve built several blogs that consistently bring in several thousands of dollars each month.
There are practically millions of things you could discuss on your blog to get readers.
Here are a few of the many things I talk about on my blogs.
- Video games/ gaming gear
- Movie streaming services
- Making money online
- Personal development
As a stay at home mom, there are many directions you could take this.
Here are just a few off the top of my head.
- Mommy experiences
- Parenting tips and tricks
- Pregnancy do’s and don’ts.
- Relationship advice
The list goes on and on.
What do you want to discuss on your blog?
Let me know in the comments below.

If you’ve ever worked in a traditional office setting when you had a J.O.B., then you may want to look into becoming a virtual assistant.

Tasks include but aren’t limited to the following.
- Writing for the web

The beauty of being a V.A. is that you can set your work hours and work from anywhere in the world.
As long as you have an internet connection, you’re good to go.
Work as much or as little as you want.
If you can only work while the kids are in school or while the baby sleeps, that’s perfectly fine.
Furthermore, if you have previous V.A. experience or specialized training, you’ll earn more money than a newb who jumps in headfirst.
Requirements: Computer/laptop, high speed internet, familiar with various website applications, and content management systems.
Price To Get Started: $0

Furthermore, depending on your writing skills, education level, and how well versed you are in various niches will determine your rate of pay.
I’ve hired many freelancers to write for me in my time as an online marketer.
Therefore I know from personal experience the importance of finding a freelance writer that possesses the qualities listed above.

Also, there are a variety of freelance writing jobs available.
They are as follows

If you’re a stay at home mom, chances are you may have tutored your kid or helped them with their homework at some point, right?
If you enjoy working with children, are fluent in the English language, and have a bachelor’s degree in anything, then you may want to consider becoming an E.S.L. Teacher.
As an E.S.L. (English Second Language) Teacher, you’ll open a whole new world of opportunity.
You’ll get the unique opportunity to connect with kids from China and teach them the English language.
Also, you’ll learn about a few famous Chinese cultures and traditions.
Furthermore, your students will also learn about a few American cultures as well.
It’s a win-win for everyone.

If you can type 75 words a minute or more, like attention to detail, and have an excellent work ethic, you may want to look into becoming a transcriptionist.
A transcriptionist work includes listening to audio files and transcribing them into a text document.
This particular work at home job can be fun and exciting for those who love this type of work.

After doing some in depth research, I discovered there are two types of text chat operators.
- Customer Service

Depending on which category you go with will determine the requirements you’ll need to meet to be accepted and start making money.
If you’re a stay at home mom and decide to go with the latter, you may want to wait until the kids are in bed.
These conversations could get pretty steamy and erotic.
Many clients are lonely and want to talk to a female about how their day went.
You’ll need to play that role and tell them what they want to hear (or see in this case).
If you decide to go the customer support route, you’d be connecting with people and answering questions via chat.

What You Need To Know
Even though this list is relatively small, you’ll only need 1 or 2 of these things (depending on what you pick) to earn a full time income.
Before writing this post, I spent hours researching, learning, and searching for only the BEST work at home jobs for you guys today.
Therefore, this is the most updated info available on the web that lists the best work at home jobs for 2020 and beyond.
If you’re the type of person who loves variety and is trying to create multiple sources of income, then this post has got you covered.
However, it’s essential to keep in mind that these job opportunities vary as too the amount of work you’ll need to put in to see substantial results.
Some of them are easy money, while others require lots of hard work and a skill set to have any results with them.
Also, a handful of them requires a fee to join.
It’s highly imperative to keep in mind that you aren’t paying for a job but instead training materials and tools which cost money.
If you’ve come here with the mindset that you shouldn’t have to pay for a job, then perhaps the opportunities/ jobs this on this site aren’t for you.
With the sudden spike in work at home jobs lately due to the pandemic, these types of jobs are in high demand.
Take your time and go over this list carefully.
Decide which ones you’d like to explore and get to work on them.
While I haven’t attempted all of these just yet, I have successfully tried out at least half of them.
If you’re a newbie who is just starting, I’d suggest starting with something small.
By doing so, you won’t overwhelm yourself.
Once you’ve conquered the small jobs, tackle the larger ones that have a higher earning potential.
When I first started online back in 2013, I started out completing hits on Amazon Mechanical Turk.
I was so excited when I received my first $5 payment online.
It felt like I had won the lottery.
Anyways, I hope this post has helped you guys out.
Furthermore, I also hope you were able to decide which job would make an excellent fit for you.
Need some help making a final decision?
Perhaps you still have questions or would like to add to this list?
I’d love to hear about it and answer any lingering questions in the comments below.
I’ll get back to you A.S.A.P. with a detailed reply.
Until Next Time
