How do I know what your situation is? My daughter is a single mom raising my grandson on her own. Now, of course, they live with me so I help as much as I can. However, she has no outside help from the father.


Daycare is expensive and the longer your child stays there each day the less time you get to spend with your child. It is a catch 22 if you think about it.


Most full-time jobs require you to work 40 hours a week and in some cases more. Part-time jobs do not pay enough to pay for rent and food much less daycare.


In my daughter’s case, she works nights which leaves me to ensure my grandson is fed, bathed, and put to sleep at a reasonable hour.


Don’t get me wrong, I am blessed to be able to spend as much time as I do with him. But, that is not the point I am trying to get across. I

Working from home is a great career choice, mainly because the work varies so greatly. The possibilities are endless in today’s world.

Become An Entrepreneur

Business Owner

Becoming your own boss is not something to overlook. It is also not an easy way out. That is to say, you will need to work harder and learn to never give up in order to succeed. However, the rewards are very gratifying.


It is no secret that you can make more money for yourself than you can working to make someone else rich with your skills.


No matter what they may be. Even if you don’t feel you have any skills, with determination any skill can be learned.


Now, don’t misunderstand the fact that any business adventure that you embark on will take an unprecedented level of commitment both physically and financially which might seem impossible depending on your situation.


But, keep in mind there have been many single moms that have turned a small business into a million and even billion-dollar companies.


Furthermore, I truly believe it is worth the sacrifice in the long run. Here are a few examples of what you can be when you grow up. I am not going to list the salaries because you are the only one standing in the way of reaching the sky when you own your own business.


1. Virtual Assistant

Sell Insurance

Selling Insurance

I realize that life insurance is probably not a hot sexy topic but the truth is everyone needs it and very few people have it. That is to say, if you enjoy talking to people this is a great career.


To be honest, selling is just talking if you think about it. Once you are licensed and you understand your product the rest is just talking about how you can help people.


This career is perfect for someone like a single mom who needs flexibility in their schedule. Since selling insurance is a people game you can easily turn past friendships into new clients.


There are several types of insurance that can be sold. However, life insurance has the largest passive income payout. In most cases, depending on the company you work for, the first year the customer signs up pays the most of your commission.

Real Estate

Selling Real Estate

Becoming a real estate agent is another perfect career if you need flexibility in your schedule. A real estate career can be very profitable after about the second year. With the hot housing market that the United States is experiencing you should be able to make great money no matter where you live.


However, there are some parts of the country where the current housing market is on fire and the price of houses is crazy high. I don’t recommend packing up and moving to these areas just to start your real estate career.


Where you live is a great place to start. As an agent, I would like to share some cons with you that most agents will not openly share with you. To start with the start-up costs will put a hit on your pocketbook.


First, there is the cost of training and licensing. That is to say, that you will need about $1000 to get licensed depending on how you choose to get your license. Meaning, there are several ways that you can become licensed.


You can sign up to work at a large firm and they will train you to get licensed and offer you a job as well. Or you can go online which is generally cheaper however, you need to find a broker to work with.


In most cases, monthly desk fees, and technology fees are usually charged by the broker you work for.


With that in mind, you will need marketing materials. For example, business cards, and Marketing Fliers just to start. After all, no one knows who you are.


Depending on who you work for you might have to purchase your own signs to hang in front of your listings and provide your own lockboxes.


Because no one really knows you and what you do you could easily spend thousands of dollars getting set up as a Realtor.

Final Thoughts

As you can see I have laid out some of the best jobs for single moms. Although this list is not complete it should provide you with some thought-provoking ideas of a direction to work towards.


Your opportunities are limitless when comes to a new career. As a single mom, you have skills that most people will never understand even if it doesn’t seem like it.


You are stronger than most because of the situation you have been thrust into. The way I see it is you can sit around and continue doing what you doing or you can take charge of another part of your life and make a difference for you and your child.


I have found after a lot of trial and error that I love working for myself more than I liked working for someone else. If that is something you are thinking about, be prepared to push hard and never give up.


You have been practicing this motto of never giving up for a long time now it is time to put this thought to work for you.


Thank you for reading and I hope I was able to leave something for you. If you have any experience that you would like to share or want to leave a comment or a question. Leave them below and I will certainly get back in a timely manner.
