5 Flexible Careers for Moms Who Work from Home


Real Estate

Your success as a real estate agent will be partly predicated on how well the market is doing, so this isn’t always going to be a guaranteed moneymaker. But if you are familiar with your local areas and the great things to do there, can talk about school districts and commute times for hours, and are looking for a job that means you'll be getting out of the house and meeting new people, then real estate could be a good fit. (Keep in mind that you will often have to show houses when your clients aren’t working, though, which may mean lots of nights and weekends.)
