Whether you’re a mum or not, the thought of creating a secondary source of income will appeal to all. The prospect of doing it without leaving the home, or at least not on a regular basis, is even better still so you can work around childcare.

While the idea of earning money in a versatile environment may seem like a pipe dream right now, it is possible to make this dream come true. In fact, there are several options at your disposal. To find the best, simply remember your ABCs. Here’s all you to know before pursuing your goals.


If you have a skill to offer, people are willing to pay for it. Becoming a freelance admin assistant or graphic designer are popular options. However, you could even look to the prospect of wedding planning. When your organisation is supported by a network of winning contacts, like bands from this website, you can achieve great things. Aside from earning money, you get to help people too.

Alternatively, an even better option is to assist companies with their market research endeavours. While you won’t become a millionaire, it’s money you can earn without even thinking. Frankly, it has to be a better idea than wasting your life scrolling through social media streams. Even an extra hundred pounds each month would make a positive impact on your life. Eventually, it may become a full-time position.   


Investing is a risky game, but it can pay dividends. While cryptocurrency has gained a lot of press coverage in recent times, there may be a better option. Matched betting on sports events combines only a little understanding of the events with mathematical logic but using a supplied calculator. Your return on investment can be significant – I made £12,000 in just nine months whilst on maternity leave!

It’s not for everyone, especially if you have an addictive personality or an inability to maintain control. Meanwhile, those that are skilled at video gaming can find ways to earn money from playing competitively. Esports have grown in popularity at a rapid rate in recent times. And now is the time for skilled players to capitalise on the opportunities that it presents. Some of the best earn six-figure salaries from it.


If I can create a successful blog, you can too. Or, if you prefer to create videos rather than write, building a YouTube channel or Instagram following can be just as useful. Online visitors will love your content, which allows you to make money through advertising and sponsorships. In some cases, it is possible to have payment-protected premium content to earn even more money.

The great thing about commentating in this way is that it lets you interact with people with shared goals and interests. Furthermore, knowing that you’ve actively helped others can be very satisfying. Above all else, though, it gives you a level of versatility and control arguably like no other. Working at a time to suit you will probably make you happier and more passionate, which will shine through in your posts.
