Stay-at-home Careers

Updated on December 26, 2016

There’s much to be said for working from home – no traffic jams, no need to leave home early, no bickering with auto-drivers, no office politics…If you have the discipline to dedicate a few hours every day to work, there are plenty of opportunities to earn from home. Some might involve a little travel, but it’s not a daily affair. Be prepared to earn a little less- but the quality of life should make up for the loss of income. Take a look at some options for home-birds.

Online Tutoring

You can earn few thousand dollars a month if you’re a qualified teacher or a professor with computer and communication skills. The subjects in demand these days are Mathematics, French, Physics, Statistics, Chemistry and Biology. The advantage is that you can teach part-time (4 hours a day) or full time (9 hours).

Placement Agency

If you network, you can earn above 3,000$ per assignment. Many booming sectors in the economy, particularly IT, ITES, insurance, retail and banking, have manpower scarcity. If you tie up with institutes to organize their campus placements or get database of people looking for jobs and help organizations find the right people, you can make a fat packet.


Buy cheap, mark up the prices, make a profit. Depending on what you decide to sell (and your neighbourhood), you can make anything above 1,000$ per month. And the buying need not be a problem; frequent auctions, garage sales and sales by embassies or large companies can get you almost anything for half the value.

Wrap it

Offer a gift-wrapping service, either in association with neighbourhood retailer or on your own. You can earn above 1,000$ per month, depending on the demand and your offering.

Event planning

: It is a good business idea especially if you manage everything. All the extras such as invitations, banners and balloons can be prepared at home. Networking with the business community can help you get a lot of work.You could make above 3,000$ for every event.


: Well almost all of you are bloggers on hubpages but if you aren’t then sign up and start writing quality hubs. If you draw traffic and clicks you can make a few hundred dollars every month. Some people have received a check of 1,000$. Make sure you have a google adsense account and enter the ID in affiliate section.

      Cleanclover, I assume you have actually done some of these ideas? I suggest you break up this Hub and write a Hub about each of the opportunities you mention, with more details (like who to contact, what the earnings are like, some tips and tricks you've learned, etc). I have three separate Hubs about blogging or writing articles for money!

      Great Hub. I also work at home, for years and feel much better then working for someone else. I do what I love, healing and counselling, I am never tired, there is no stress, but was not easy from the beginning. Recently I moved to the another town, and had to completely reorganize my job. Due to the various circumstances, was not simple task in the very beginning.But I manage to do that, with great help of power of intention and self-trust. Meditation and visualisation of money helped me a lot.  Thanks to the "Secret" I have learned how to apply Law of attraction. Whenever I visualize money, my earnings are improving... Secret is working very well.

       Thank you very much for that Hub,an the other ones as well, Love&Light.
