What are the best work-at-home jobs for homeschool moms?

Every homeschool family situation is different and many homeschool moms find themselves needing to supplement the family’s income.

There are so many options when it comes to remote work!

My idea of “working at home” was blogging and it has paid off for us. It allowed me to get my research and thoughts out to you all and make money for our family.

So what are real work-at-home jobs for homeschool moms?

The Best Work-at-Home Jobs for Homeschool Moms

I’m going to be listing real jobs, not quick survey jobs that pay a tiny 5 dollars.

I’m also NOT including any MLM jobs in this post. I know you can make great money with these jobs but not all of us are good at sales.

Most of the jobs in this first section involve some type of phone calls but here are positions for writing, graphic design, and email and chatbox customer service as well.

For any job that handles phone calls, you will need a noise-canceling headset and a room in your house to yourself.

If you have very small kids and no childcare available for a few hours a day, the phone call jobs may not be for you unless you want to work the graveyard shift a few hours a night or have a spouse who can cover for you.

Anyone with slightly older kids that are more independent could easily work the phone jobs, especially the ones where you can create your own schedule daily.

Work-at-Home Jobs on the Phone

All of the jobs in this section involve being on the phone but sometimes the company will have a data entry or chat box/email position. Assume these places are heavy phone calls when applying though.

Working Solutions

Working Solutions is a customer service company based out of Texas. They hire in almost every state at entry-level positions and you can primarily set your own hours.

You can work in blocks of time that you decide in half-hour time chunks. Perfect for a few early morning hours while the kids are asleep or after they go to bed.

Some of the positions do require a 20 hour a week minimum but you can see that requirement before you apply for a job like that.

Companies that partner with Working Solutions include Turbotax, Hotels.com, Michael’s, Atmos Energy, and many insurance places. They have a wide range of work from financial to travel available.

The pay at Working Solutions varies depending on what job you are doing but it averages between $15-18 an hour.

This is a 1099 job so you will have to file 1099 like a freelancer when you file your taxes.

You provide the equipment (computer and noise-canceling headset) for this job.

Liveops

Liveops is another company similar to Working Solutions where you can make your own hours in 30min. time blocks.

It’s for entry-level positions.

It’s primarily customer service over the phone and you will be paid by the talk minute. On average it is roughly $15-18 an hour but you may get higher or lower days here and there. I have heard of people averaging $22 an hour but I don’t think it’s the norm.

It’s also a 1099 freelance job so you will have to file your 1099 at tax time.

They have a variety of companies ranging from healthcare, insurance, travel, energy, and hospitality to partner with and you will be placed with a company to match your skillset.

You provide your own equipment for Liveops which is a basic computer, headset, Windows, and possibly a landline.

Both Working Solutions and Liveops are very flexible so these jobs could work around play dates, co-ops, family trips, or days where you just can’t seem to get it together.

Less Flexible Work-at-Home Companies

There are many companies who hire remote customer service positions but most are on a set schedule that can’t be adjusted like Working Solutions and Liveops.

You hire in for a set of hours that is permanent.

If you are able to work M-F from 8-12 for example, these remote jobs offer more stability and benefits.

They are NOT 1099 and many come with health care benefits. Some companies listed below will send you a computer or other equipment necessary to do the job.

There are so many companies that hire work-at-home jobs for homeschool moms, that it’s impossible to list them all. If you work remotely or know someone who does, please comment below and let us know.

Non Phone Work-at-Home Jobs

It’s defiantly harder to find jobs that don’t require phone calls but there are still many to choose from.

Lionbridge or Appen

Both Appen and Lionbridge offer jobs such as data collection, transcription, and search engine evaluation which don’t involve phone calls.

These positions generally pay lower ranging around $10-12 an hour. You can definitely make your own hours and work whenever you want which is a huge plus.

You can hop on or off the computer when you need to and work any time of the day.

After getting accepted to the main company, you would test and hire on for these tasks for a period of time such as 6 months. Work seems to come in waves and isn’t as steady as in the places mentioned above.

Both of these companies send a 1099 for your taxes and you are required to supply a computer.

Virtual Assistant Jobs

Being a virtual assistant can mean so many things! You can do anything from calendar management, email, copywriting, social media management, data entry, research, or graphic design.

You can find virtual assistant work on places like Upwork or Fiverr, or search Indeed for virtual assistant positions.

Most virtual assistants niche down their skill set and offer a package of their services for a set price such as creating social media graphics or 10 hours of email work a month.

Being a virtual assistant is a freelance job where you set your own prices and do your taxes with a 1099.

There are many websites and Facebook groups geared toward helping you prepare to become a virtual assistant and how to manage your time and service packages.

The job can vary depending on what you want to do as a virtual assistant. Are you more artsy or administrative? Good with numbers or writing sales copy?

It really depends on your personality and skill set.

If you are completely unsure of where to begin, hop on Upwork and see what other people are doing!

Freelance Writing Jobs

There are many ways to earn money in freelance writing so if you enjoy research and writing this could be a perfect fit for you.

Many people start out with a content mill company and eventually move to more of a freelance position since working on your own will pay way more.

Popular companies that hire writers include:

Some of these writing places will give you a customer request to write about and others you produce the article and put it up for sale.

You will have to familiarize yourself with the format of writing blog articles, and proper grammar, and take a few basic writing tests to begin work.

If you are a good writer and enjoy writing blogs or copywriting you can make very good money!

Bigger websites will pay a $100 minimum for a blog article. Many writers are getting several hundred or more per article if they are good with SEO and keywords.

Best Work-at-Home Jobs for Homeschool Moms

There are so many choices when it comes to remote jobs that it can be overwhelming to dig through them.

It’s best to determine if you want to take phone calls or focus on a skill set like accounting or writing.

You also need to take into consideration the ages of your kids.

Flexjobs has a huge board of remote jobs ranging from entry-level to executive positions.

It’s impossible for me to list all of the wonderful companies offering remote positions so please list yours in the comments below.

    remote.co (That is not a typo. I did NOT mean “remote.com”) is another company that links to a lot of work-from-home jobs. They have categories you can browse like writing/editing, data entry, entry level, virtual assistant, billing, coding, and many others. It’s a pretty rich resource and I believe it would be a great place for other homeschool moms to look for remote jobs. 😉
