Perfect Online Careers for Mums

Life as a working mum can be difficult. In fact, for some, it can seem impossible. Childcare is so expensive, to the point that many families find themselves in the complicated situation of not being able to afford to live on one income, but also being unable to afford the childcare for both parents to go to work. Some of us may be entitled to some free childcare when our children are 3, but if you’ve been out of work for nearly four years, it can be hard to secure a job that fits around your family. Even if you can work, flexibility is a huge problem.

Offering flexible working has a massive range of advantages for employers, but many don’t do it. Most nurseries and childcare providers close at 5-6pm, but workers are expected to work later. Even finishing at 5 pm doesn’t allow much time to travel in rush hour traffic. Then, the children start school, and somehow it gets harder. Now you can only work between 10 am and 2 pm unless your childminder can do a school pick up or your school provides after-school care and breakfast clubs. What is a working mum to do?

Well, fortunately, the internet can help. There are a wide variety of ways to make money online, even with no experience or qualifications. Working online can offer you complete flexibility. You can work around your children’s needs when they are in bed or around school times. You may still choose to use childcare, to give yourself some quiet time to work. But, it will be around your needs, and at times that suit you, not your employer. You’ll also have more time at home with your children; you’ll enjoy it more because you’ll be less stressed out and you’ll generally be happier. Online work can also offer you a fantastic way to make good money. You’ll face no discrimination; you won’t be passed over for promotions because you’ve got children, you will have total control. Sound good? Here are a few things that you could do.



Blogging can be a fantastic career, and more people than ever are turning their hobby blogs into a business. It can take time to build up to making a substantial income, but you could make some money from advertising and affiliate marketing straight away. To start working with brands, selling extras, like membership to a private section of your site, or eBooks, you’ll need to out in a lot of time and effort. But, it will be yours. Your blog will be your business, and you’ll be able to do whatever you want with it. Just make sure you protect yourself with help from and by not sharing absolutely everything with your audience.

A career as a virtual assistant can be perfect for mums. Now so many bloggers make money, and so many people have their own online business, there is definitely a place for talented assistants to make money from the comfort of your own home. Businesses and bloggers might pay a VA a few hours a day or week (to suit you and them) to organise social media, schedule posts, reply to emails and blog comments, edit photos and posts, arrange meetings and more. Basically, anything that can be done online, a VA can do. The more you offer, and the higher the quality of your work, the more you will be able to charge. In the UK the average VA earns £25+, with room for growth over time.



Many of us haven’t written anything since we left school. But, that doesn’t mean that you can’t do it anymore. Many blogs and websites will pay for well-written content and guest posts. Practice your skills on your blog, and then start pitching for work. can be a great place to find work or look for “write for us” or “submit a post” buttons on your favourite websites. You might not make much to start with, but once you’ve found sites that pay well and like the work you can start to do well. The biggest advantage of writing is that you can take on as much or as little work as you want.


Graphic Design

Like writers, graphic designers can do very well online. Many blogs and small businesses are looking for ways to make their sites more professional, and design plays a huge part. Set up as a web designer or graphic designer and you could easily find work online.

Remember, if you are making money online, you need to register as self-employed and track your income ready to declare at the end of the tax year.

Why you should read my blog

Blogging has been such an amazing journey for me. Looking back I realized how much I have grown over the years. It’s been quite an experience sharing my thoughts, tips and updates. This blog has gone through a series of changes and I appreciate everyone who has stuck around all these years following my blog. I noticed that there has been a tremendous increase in the number of people who read my blog. So I just wanted to let you know why you should keep reading my blog.

You get daily updates when you read my blog

Unlike most blogs, I blog daily. The reason is because I can’t help myself. Fashion and Style Police is like an addiction. I just have to blog. Showing up everyday to serve you and provide you with value is a priority for me. I also want to make sure I feed my creativity.


You get the best of the world of fashion, beauty and lifestyle

Aside from giving you regular updates, I dish out fashion, beauty and lifestyle inspiration/information. Most of the articles you see here are evergreen and timely. I put in time to make sure that you get high quality information that you can always come back to whenever you need it.


I share my personal experiences

All the content I share has a personal touch. I want to be able to relate with you all and for you to relate with me. I hardly write about things I have not personally used or things I have not personally experienced.

My goal is to build a close relationship with you

I wanted my blog to be more like you and I sitting at a café and chatting about all things fashion, beauty and lifestyle. My blog focuses on harnessing that relationship. As I share my personal stories and my perspectives about life and fashion, I make sure that we can relate with each other.


I encourage you to get creative

Fashion is not about following what designers or fashion critics say is fashionable. Beauty is not all about the next makeup product that must be in your makeup bag, just because the makeup gods said so. I want to encourage you through my blog to dictate your own taste.  If you are a regular reader, you would know that I have mentioned several times on here, on how I love mixing and matching outfits and experimenting with different styles. I believe more people should give themselves permission to be creative and be stylish in their own way.


You’ll learn to be more business savvy

I’m not only a blogger, I run a business. I share my experiences creating a laptop based lifestyle where I’m not dependent on a 9-to-5. As you read my blog, you will get to learn how to start a business of your own or monetize your blog so that you can be financially free.

The tips I share are my real life experiences and business hacks that have helped me provide a comfortable living for my family as well as do the job that gives me fulfillment.


Why do you read blogs you read? Looking forward to reading your responses.
