All moms are serving/working moms, they just might not get a big reward for everything they are doing. Raising children is the hardest and most rewarding job a mom will ever do. If you are a mom, you must be thinking of all the ends to make it work to the beautiful home with happy kids & family. However, if there are bills to pay or you want to keep career skills fresh while staying at home with your kids, there are side jobs to make extra money as a passive income.
You need to be more creative, particularly if you want to work from home. It’s a hella work to search for reliable online jobs without the basic knowledge of online community and how the “work from home” works. Rather than posting a resume on sites Monster, which will mostly result in getting you a ton of scraps mail, try new side job ideas like connecting with people you already know on Linkedin or searching for local jobs at Craigslist or Backdoor Jobs. These are just few platforms to begin with, that’s not the end of the list and if you have some hobbies that amazes the people, that just makes the whole process a lot easier to make a fine living with online jobs.
Here are some of references where you can find tremendous freelance jobs that can make you a lot of money online based on your expertise:

Mystery shopping companies are one of my all time favorites for getting paid to do something you’d previously do, like get an oil change, see a film or shop at a store. Companies will pay you to pretend you are a “regular” shopper while you are evaluating the customer service, cleanliness, quality, and attentiveness of a particular retailer. Being certified by The Mystery Shopping Association will get you more jobs. Some companies are more reliable than others, so you want to be careful whom you choose to work with. There is no need to pay for a list of mystery shopping companies, although you will find many online shopping websites which will try to get you to do just that. Start at Mystery shop.
Market research or marketing analysis is another one of my preferred ways to earn quick money jobs for doing something fun. Market research companies will pay to get your opinion(market research analysis) both online and in person. Do a quest for “Market Research” next to the name of your city to find top market research companies in your city that are looking for people to participate in focus groups at their buildings. You can also get some listings at Find focus groups. You will meet a lot of interesting people and get paid to the only talk about what you like and don’t like.
You can also get paid to take qualitative market research surveys online. Some marketing survey sites and market research firms are scams, so be careful. Here are a some of the popular ones out there:
