Hi mamas, I am just starting to transition into working at home. I finally landed a job as a web evaluator and freelancing. Any mamas know any more worthy WFM jobs I should be looking at? I starting freelancing as well. Any tips on that?

Are you into photography at all? Its a business you can start easily and you can make your own schedule.

I am doing transcription. Which if you can type then you are good to go. The faster you type the easier it is for you get more work but it is a great way to earn extra money and make your own hours.

I loved reading everyone's tips.  I was happy someone posted about this, can't wait to see what other suggestions people list.

Seconding everyone's suggestions for UpWork, it's great!

TaskRabbit is a good one to consider and I've heard about Hourly Nerd, but never tried them.

You can search on Indeed - they have virtual full and part time positions. Flexjobs, VirtualVocations, Amazon, Uhaul and many other big name companies have virtual positions.

My suggestion is to not accept more than 5 jobs at once. Then order the jobs from most important to not so important. For me the higher income jobs get priority and I am always clear that I need a deadline or if it is open ended I make it a goal of finishing the job within a month. It is always better to collect a flat rate for a job. Once I am ready to start a project I make a to do list of everything that is a priority for the day and leave notes to myself on my progress. I also put in deadlines as reminders on my phone so nothing slips through the cracks. I hope some of this helps. 

Any ladies have tips on managing different projects? I just submitted a bunch of proposals and tried to accept all the offers I thought were legit, manageable. What I am having a hard time doing is managing different projects and making sure I have enough time for all

I work for pizza hut through contract world. And you can also try arise and concentrix!

I do work part time but I feel pulled in so many directions it stresses me out. Some work requires me to go into the office and some I can do at home. I'd much rather do jobs for UpWork but have not had much success there.

Freelance photography, drone work for realtors, and desk claims adjuster. Maybe look into catastrophe claims adjusting as well. Pay $25-$50/hr.

I work part time from home for a local photographer.  I schedule appointments for her clients and book locations for photo shoots.  I also work on her social media platform and work on customer service emails.  I do most in the evenings but a few hours everyday are needed during normal business hours.  Check with your family and friends and see if anyone needs help and is willing to pay for something  like this.

You could try emailing businesses in your area if you had a specific talent like sales support skills, writing, editing, etc. It never hurts to offer your services.

Definitely check out freelance sites like Freelancer and Upwork but be careful. Only go for payment verified and clients with a history if you're looking at fixed rate. You can also patrol Reddit like someone said above. You can also "cold email" potential customers locally.

Freelance writing is great if you're a decent writer. Don't be afraid to search around on Reddit too. I see a lot of WFH stuff on there. Just use your head and keep an eye out for scams everywhere.

Becoming a VA is highly popular right now.  You have to watch out for scams on sites like upwork but they also have great leads.  Reach out to your friends and family and let them know you are doing VA work and they might have leads for you for landing VA jobs.  Lots of flexibility with this type of work and great for stay at home moms!

I am hoping to work from home part-time with my current employer. I am so fortunate they are going to try this out with me. I really have no idea what to expect once the baby arrives.

I've tried upwork and have only landed one job.  Need help on submitting proposals as well.  Goal is to work at home after the baby is born.

Try searching Craigslist in the "gigs" column. I've found a few odd WFH jobs there. Mainly admin stuff for my spare time. I'm going to be relying heavily on freelancing when the baby comes.
