Online Businesses That Can Make You a Millionaire as a Stay-At-Home Mom


Gone are the days when stay-at-home Moms don’t have their own money. Thanks to the internet, so many online businesses can make you a millionaire from the comfort of your home. 

I remember a SAHM whose blog I follow…

She wrote that she wasn’t used to staying home and depending on someone financially. 

So, she became a freelance writer and even began to make more than her husband as time went on.

Now listen, the goal isn’t to be richer than anyone. 

The goal is that you, as an individual, have something to call your own and that you have some money to your name. 

And, of course, extra money doesn’t hurt.

What are the online businesses that can make you a lot of money as a SAHM?

There are many businesses you can do online as a SAHM that is more than able to make you rich beyond your wildest dreams.

Some of them include:

1. Writing Online:

Remember the freelance writer Mamma who began to make a lot of money? 

You can be just like her. 

If you love writing or have so many things you want to talk about, you can start writing. 

You can either start a blog or become a freelance writer or sell your stories online.

My friend’s sister, a housewife who loves to write, began to write children’s books online.

Soon, she began to make money and attract people who wanted customized stories for their kids. 

You can do just that. 

Not to mention that it is even easier now to self-publish if you want to become an author.

2. Start a Photography Business:

If you love being behind a camera, then you can make money off it. 

Photography is so big right now. 

From selfies to shoots for blogs, vlogs, adverts, etc., photography is extensive. 

Just invest in a good camera and learn some basic Photoshop or Lightroom skills, and you’re good to go. 

You can sell them online on Unsplash, Burst, Pixabay, etc.

You can even make a picture book with your photographs or customized calendars for people. 

Do you know the Duchess of Cambridge’s book “Hold Still?” It’s a picture book of how the UK looked during COVID. 

It has more than 50 pictures. 

Pictures speak, so use your talent to make money.

3. Painting/Drawing:

This is almost like photography. 

You can draw sketches for children’s colouring books; you can draw items and do puzzles out of them, etc.

4. Digital /Social Media Marketing:

Everything is on the internet these days. 

If you know a lot about social media and how it works, you can optimize that knowledge for some cool cash. 

A young girl called Peace Itimi began her career in digital marketing in her university days. 

And while she was studying in Nigeria, her first client was based in the U.S. 

Skills like these don’t require you to leave your house. 

All you need is the knowledge and maybe a laptop.

5. Become an Online Influencer:

If you have the vibe and the charisma, you can be a social media influencer. 

This is one of the easiest ways to make money these days. 

There are lots of mommy influencers. 

You can be one of them. 

As time goes on, you will start getting sponsors, and that is so much money

6. Blogger/Vlogger:

Blogging or vlogging is an excellent way to make easy money. 

As you grow followers, you start having sponsors, which means more money. 

Many people started on Youtube and are now millionaires. Join the growing numbers! You can start a fashion business and become an influential fashion design blogger or vlogger.

7. Sell your Ideas:

You can use your platform to get companies and personal brands looking for fresh ideas if you have good ideas. 

Good ideas are sellable. 

If you read the story of Amazon, you will realize that for each sector of the company, it was different people’s ideas of them. 

Not Jeff Bezos. 

And for every idea brought and well implemented, the originators are paid a large sum of money.

8. Web Design:

With the rise in branding and thus an increase in websites, web designing and development is a perfect field to go into.

9: Creating/Editing Videos:

If you are good with videos, that is, editing and creating videos, you have a money venture. 

With a good camera and some skills in Adobe Premiere, Adobe Illustrator and After Effects, you can do magic with videos. 

Companies and personal brands need videographers who can help them grow their business through catchy videos.

10. Creating Ads:

If you’re good at marketing, then this field is for you. 

I watched a video about a TikToker who spent her covid-19 year making ads of different items around the house. 

Towards the end of the year, influential brands met her, and she’s now part of the creative team, making ads for various big brands. 

This is just like video editing. 

Just learn the basic skills and brush upon them.

11. Proofread books and articles for money:

Proofreading or editing books is always a good way of making money online. 

As a SAHM, you may not have the time to write your work. 

However, you can still work with words and the art of writing by proofreading other people’s work.


There are so many online businesses you can try. 

Forex, e-commerce and cryptocurrency are also good ideas, but you need proper training for them.

To have an effective and rewarding online business, you need to have an online presence. 

You also need to be consistent. 

It won’t happen overnight or even in two months. 

All you need is probably a good internet connection, a laptop, and your content for the most part.

A Stay At Home Mom can also make money. 

Even though being a mum is probably the most beautiful job, you can still have other identities and jobs that are also rewarding and beautiful. 

Make some money, Mamma!

This is mind blowing. I think I can become an online influencer or digital/ social media marketing if I have the opportunity to attend a training on it.

This has really opened my eyes
Thanks so much Mam Viv

Thank you Mam for this. I love to write and have taken some short courses already but the feeling of me not ready is keeping me from getting started.

I guess I’ll have to start now. I need all the extra cash I can make.
