60+ Real Jobs for Stay at Home Moms

1. Math Tutor

Just wanted to comment on your Exchange Student post. I taught in Japan at a Japanese High School and had six classes with forty students per class.

I know the two young ladies you hosted were thrilled and blessed beyond measure to have had the opportunity to live with your family. All the students long for American friends and all things American! They are the most wonderful people! I know you were blessed in return! Amway Independent Business Owner for me: This is a great list of ideas, but the title of your post is quite offensive.

It suggests that the only REAL moms are those that stay home. That is NOT the case whatsoever!!! I assure you, that is not the intention at all! My whole blog is about simple strategies for real moms. I quit my good paying job 2 years ago to be a SAHM and now I have become quite proficient at being a survey taker, product tester and participant in online focus groups.

And a new job to add to our list! I am curious, how many hours do you have to spend to make that much? Do you make actual cash that you can use to pay bills, or are you paid in, say, Amazon gift cards? I do spend A LOT of time on my laptop—probably close to 7 hrs a day mon-fri. Can you give me info on how to get started doing this?? Been looking for something to do as a SAHM!!

What sites do you use? I would like for you to email me some more information. I would love to do the same thing you are doing so I can stay home with my baby. I stay at home with my 2 boys.. I would love the taking survey info as well! Can you give me the sites that you use? I want to find some legit online income. How did you start doing that? Bridget, Are you able to share which websites you do surveys for, etc.? I would be interested in trying this.

Bridget, can you please e mail me more about becoming a SHAM? I would greatly appreciate it: How did you start your job? Working from home, via computer sounds like just the ticket. For me, I work in a virtual environment. I design clothing on Photoshop, then I upload them to virtual games and sell them to people in the games for money. Everything I ran into is basically a scam. Seven years ago, before I had children, I taught music full-time at a conservatory. I had 47 students.

I left the conservatory when I had my first baby, and now I teach piano lessons in my home part-time during the day. I have four little ones, and the piano moms and dads babysit for me while I teach their children. In return, they get a discount on lessons.

I love when moms translate their skills and experience working outside the home to a business that allows them to work at home! Our home was built in and I could not afford that inspection. So, that idea went down the commode. I was blessed with a daycare position for the summer that allowed me to bring my children for free and that was huge!

Now I am substitute teaching and would love to be home full time again. I home school him. I do have a full time job but have been off for over 2 months due to medical problems. I need a way to make money from home. Any help is very welcome. Click subscribe at the very top of the blog, and sign up for email updates.

My name is Sarah also but not the one posted. But I was reading these comments and ran across yours. I would really appreciate any help you can give me.

I also homeschool my son as well. This could be a whole post or series! I would recommend How to Blog for Profit without selling your soul. It has fantastic information on how to make money blogging while writing about your passion. We are also a one-car family and cut unnecessary spending when we can — in hopes of paying off our insane credit card debt soon! Please give me more info on your business. I am a natural childbirth educator for Birth Boot Camp!

There are different programs, depending on your interests. The one I am most familiar with is Bradley, and they have training across the country every year. The training does cost, but it is a wonderful program. I went through Bradley classes with my husband when we were pregnant with our first and it was just the best experience for both of us.

You can find more about training here. I am a stay at home Mom with a part-time work from home job. For the past 3 years, I have had the blessing of being the secretary and office manager for a small Hydrovacing company.

I have been able to do all the work from home until this past summer. Now, our youngest, age 3, goes with me 3 days a week for a few hours. We have 4 children- 16, 14, 7 and 3. I have also sold things on local sales sites for extra income. I have been at home since our oldest was born. It was choices to support our decision to have me at home.

We made that decision before we married almost 23 years ago. And, we are both thankful and blessed by it. I work with an amazing company that has an awesome nutritional product!

Not many know about it, making this a ground floor, rocking opportunity! This product supports health and wellness! There are studies backing it and personal testimonies that are amazing! Everything from sleeping better, more energy, allergies, skin, eyes, stronger, bones, arthritis, diabetes, cholesterol, blood pressure, just to name a few, all improved just by supplementing with this product!

As a customer you can earn free product just by sharing with others and as a business owner you can earn free product plus a shiny new BMW! Could you please email me about this business. I am two months away from being a stay at home mom and very interested in a way to make money and stay home with my little one.

Hello, I am a stay at home mom to 7 crazy busy kids. I have always wanted to find a way that I can bring in a little money on the side while still being able to care for my house and family. My only problem is that I really have no skills other then being a mom.

What would you suggest for me? I always recommend sticking close to the skills you already have, so maybe taking on one or two kids and running a small in-home daycare would be an option for you?

And my team is beyond amazing and they have taken all of the guess work out. It has been such a blessing being a part of this. Love all these ideas and the creativity of moms wanting to stay home and yet contribute financially for their families. Thank you for including all these ideas. I am a mom of four boys and have worked for Pampered Chef for six years. I love cooking, helping others develop a love for cooking and eating healthy! The benefits have been incredible. I easily earn hundreds of dollars a month and reap bonuses for staying active from tote bags to jewelry to free products that I am able to give as gifts.

I always advise women I speak with who are looking for opportunities such as this to find what you are passionate about, make sure your husband is on board with it, pray and then go for it! My favorite thing about being a Norwex consultant is helping others rid their home of chemicals and make it a safer place for their families. I started three weeks ago part time with Isagenix.

I have a full time job and lost 40 lbs using Isagenix and started selling 3 weeks ago. We get paid every Monday!

I am one of many stay-at-home moms that are consultants with Pampered Chef. The woman who started the company wanted something that stay-at-home moms could do to earn money.

This should be added to the list. I would love more information about this. I was doing childcare out of my home but that recently changed and I need a way to make up that income, without having to go back to full time work.

I found the Younique company and it has been a huge blessing in my life! We sell high quality mineral based makeup and other beauty products that are made from more natural products.

Have you heard of the amazing 3D Lashes!?!?! The first savings I get is I get wonderful makeup for free or almost free. It lasts along time also! The 2nd Is I make awesome commissions from my friends hosting online parties! It has been a huge blessing in my families life!!

I am a stay at home mom of 2. Keep is only in the Beta-phase and will be launching in January I wanted to be a part of something new and wanted to wear all the jewelry! In just over one month, I am reaping the benefits of bringing in income for my family AND learning about a business from the ground up!

I was surprised no one mentioned Zeal for Life! They are one of the fastest growing businesses in the wellness industry. Zurvita was even featured in Success from Home magazine in April of this year and I am proud to say I work for a Christian company. I love the freedom I have with being a Zeal for Life consultant, but best of all…I love how much my life has changed since using the wellness product! Contact me if you are ready to change your life too!

I am a SAHM of 4 kids 2 being home schooled, 1 toddler, and 1 infant with special needs and my hubby and I have an Amway business. The simplicity of buying things we already use, sharing how to do it, and making money just made sense to us!

The products are awesome and so is the flexibility! I am a SAHM and hold a job for a fortune healthcare company. There are lots of opportunities to work companies who offer telecommuting. I only have to go on-site about Times a year for a 1 hour meeting. It has been wonderful to keep my job but allowing me to do everything for my 5 kids aging 15 to 21 months old.

I am interested in telecommuting, mother of two under age 3, what company do you work for Delphine? I worked as a nurse for 10 years but had to quit to stay home with my now 2 year old twins when they were 7 months old.

I am glad there is a list like this. I stayed home and just spend time with my babies most of the last year and a half but recently in May started with Origami Owl as a way to have fun and spend time with other female adults.

I am a stay at home, homeschooling mom of a 9yo and a 7yo. I love The Pampered Chef home and kitchen products and I love cooking healthy, organic, allergy friendly meals for people.

Like any other business, if you put hard work into it, you will be successful. My goal is to make enough money to pay for the organic ingredients that I use at my free cooking shows. I joke with my clients that I get paid in free Pampered Chef products that I earn from each show or class I host: The Pampered Chef is really an amazing company to work with and am blessed to have such an amazing support team.

I am a distributor with It Works. Started my journey in April to supplement my WAHM income as a staff recruiter for occupational, physical and speech therapist. I have a soon to be 2 year old and my husband and I realized it actually cost us more for me to work outside the home, and I was fortunate enough to be able to work out a situation with my employer to allow me to do my job from home.

I have a sitter that helps from time to time to allow me time to meet deadlines, meetings, jobfairs. I schedule wrap appointments and parties when my husband is home. This also also allows me to have a positive work life balance for myself and gives our child a chance to have a mom at home but to still be able to have someone to give her undivided attention when I have work priorities.

So far it is a win win for us. My sister started getting paychecks from Zija and we were like, wow this is really a great opportunity for a 2nd income. We have so many people asking us about the products it is so easy. Great company and our team is so inspirational and motivated.

The doctors who created Proactiv now have an anti-aging pharmaceutical line. This is the FiRST company with an established brand to ever enter direct sales.

We get a huge amount of press coverage in major magazines and we were just named the fourth largest premium skin care brand in the U. This company is changing the face of direct sales as we know it. I would love to share more. I brang my business home. I am a licensed cosmotologist and have been doing hair for several years, well I decided to lose the over head and be closer to my kids win win of course but bringing your cliets home has its challenges none the less I remodeled my garage into a stylish salon and new and old clients alike are loving it.

I also rep for Arbonne International, Im a big fan of there Vegan products and decided to start selling them as I use other vegan products in my home and salon as well. I love this idea! Thank you so much for sharing your story! Thanks for sharing this information. Thanks for sharing your shop! You have so much cute stuff over there already!

Thanks so much, Shannon. My husband and I were builders in the military. We decided to use our construction experience to renovate and sell our home for a profit. We plan to use the money to pay off most, if not all, our debt. The next house should make enough money for us to pay ourselves a monthly salary while we work on the house after that and so on.

I love how there really is an endless variety of ways families are making an at home income! Thank you so much for sharing Anna! Love the different ideas for SAHM. My 3 kids are in school now but have begun babysitting to help a friend out but have wanted to do in home childcare for a while now. As I was reading the article and comments, I became curious about blogging.

I have never tried it and wanted some more info. Blogging is definitely a labor of love that can help with extra income. Also, I really recommend the book Blogging for Profit. Hope to get some great info and tips for starting a blog. I quit my job a couple of years ago to start an art business. I love to paint. Thanks for all the great ideas everyone has posted. When I was pregnant 16 years ago with our first daughter I had a conversation with my Grandma a few weeks before she went to be with the Lord.

Well, it was possible and the Lord provided a way for me to transition from working at the physical therapy office I was employed with and had done some transcription for by putting me in contact with a local transcription company ran by a husband and wife.

I typed for about the first 4 years of her life and then we found that we could indeed live on one income if we prioritized and ran our household differently.

It has been a wonderful 16 years with my two daughters. I began homeschooling them, too, eight years ago! When they were small I would buy high end clothing for them and re-sell it to make it a near wash when the clothes were outgrown. It helps to make back a little! You brought tears to my eyes. Thank you so much for sharing your testimony and encouraging other mamas! Thanks so much for this great article. But my son is 6 months now and it seems like a perfect time to get started…thanks for the ideas and encouragement!

I really felt like 6 months was the magic number with both of mine too, where we started getting back into a routine. If you do decide to start one, feel free to email me!

Have you thought about doing something with your graphic design on Fiverr? Or perhaps contact bloggers, as they often need help making nice Pinnable images. I recently became a SAHM for my 10 month old daughter.

Its been great to stay home with her but we had to cut back on a lot of expenses and I really missed being able to go out for an ice cream or getting a coffee. My friend works for a research company and asked me to participate in one of her studies by filling out an online form about my daughter and husband.

It was pretty easy and gave me a little mad money to take my daughter and husband out for a little treat. I know that they are still looking for participants so thought I would share in case anyone is in a similar situation as me. If anyone is interested you can use this link http: I have been a member of this site for over 2 years. You can earn real cash, not points or egift cards.

Thanks so much for this great article, no doubt you have added value to some and relief to some. I will like to know about blogging. I really need to get busy, it has been so frustrating being idle for years, I have been a SAHM for 15years, raising my children.

They are grown now and in secondary school,I am now so idle, really need to get busy. I loved the read Shannon! Thanks for the plethora of inspirations. Making body scrub interests me most. I have a BA in music and education — so I teach piano, and tutor in order to make a bit of money.

I have also become a mystery shopper so it allows me to go out to eat but not really pay for it….: My husband showed me this website: I have a daughter coming in a Month and I am looking forward to being able to write about what I love and make money doing so! I have two kids under 5 and Forever Living has been a lifesaver! Check it out http: I have been searching for years for a way to stay home with my 2 year old son.

I finally found the answer! I am a weight management coach with a program called LTL live the Lifestyle. I teach clients how to eat right and exercise often.

This program is part of a bigger company who also allows people to become distributors of other wonderful products like beauty products and isotonixs. If you want to be your own boss, work from home, and want to make a difference please contact me via reply I have also found a shopping site that allows you to earn cashback on all your online purchases.

Nothing like getting paid to shop! Here is the link http: Hello Kim, Could you please give me more information on the weight management coach.

I would love to do this as well. I really like this article and I think that you have done a wonderful job! I am going to become a new mother here soon and I am really contemplating being a stay at home mom. I would like the additional income so I am hoping to find a job that I can do from home.

This is all very new to me and to be honest I am kinda scared. I have been working at my current position for over 6 years now. Do you have any recommendations for me to get started? What you said Natasha!!! I am scared as well but kind of encouraged after reading all of the success stories.

I have been at my current job for 6 years as well and am due in October. I never would have thought about being a SAHM until now. I loved this article and have found hope that I can do this! I am interested in possibly writing a blog about something and earning a little extra money. Does anyone have some suggestions on how I can do this?

I worked in a hospital for over 10 yrs but had to quit my job in nursing to care for my disabled husband who is a retired vet from the USAF of 25 yrs so we have been living on a very tought budget with two of our children and our three grandsons so I have been looking for a job that keeps me home with my husband Could you please help me with finding something.

I am a JewerlyinCandles business owner. There are no monthly website fees, no monthly quotas, etc.. I work for Alpine Access powered by Sykes at Home. Alpine has about 60 companies that outsource their phone calls to them. They then hire people at home to answer those calls. You have to have a quiet environment, so I would recommend this if you can get childcare, or if your SO can watch the kids while you do it.

If you have a reference you are more likely to get a job, and I get a bonus for referring people. So far i have been paid by amazon gift cards and by paypal transfers. Register and complete surveys and keep earning.

These few bucks can help you buy something you wanted to buy for baby but was hesitant to waste money. Give it a try and you ll be surprised.

Such great ideas in the post and comments! It is extremely important for mothers to find a balance between work and home.

When you find a legit stay at home position, it may become even harder to find that balance because of the comfort of being home some of us may not be able to take work as serious not being in a work environment. My advice as a stay at home mom is to remember what and who you are doing this for. I wish every single one of you the best! I am a new mom to the most amazing little boy who is almost 4 months old.

Making money blogging is difficult, it requires growing an audience, blogging regularly, and a lot of other marketing tactics. As someone who has started many, many blogs that failed, I can tell you that starting a food related blog is the easiest and quickest way to make money with a blog. But, there are over 10 million recipe searches online every day, so you need a very small share of that to make a very good income. Again, my intention is not to spam this conversation, but please feel free to as any questions, I am happy to help.

I am a single mom of 3 beautiful girls. My oldest has decided to move out on her own, but my other two are still at home.

I shop an online store that sells safer products often cheaper than name-brand. Told a few friends that I thought would like it and get paid for the referral. I was just released from a job that made me feel And said I was incompetent. Not even work well at a fast-food joint. I was wanting to get my Photography off the ground but am worried that it is a useless effort. I think Data entry would be good? If they said you are incompetent it may be just a thing to say when you have to get rid of someone.

If you love photography, than go for it. From my personal experience, I had most success when I did not set for less than what I really want.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated: If anyone has questions on joining Jamberry as a consultant please feel free to go to my website and look around. You can Facebook me or email me any questions you have from there. You have really motivated me to open a blog and start writing. I will put a lot of these money earning tips into practice. Although I have been writing and posting articles about paid surveys on my blog, unfortunately I am not making much to even maintain the blog.

It is just a waste of time. I will try to go through these sites you listed here to know which topic to stick with. One way to make money at home is sell Valentus products.

I am a product of the product…In four months I have lost 25 pounds and 25 inches with just drinking one cup of Valentus Slim Roast per day. I also sell the product and I make money doing it! I sell my products on my websites and thru word of mouth. I have 0 money to put into starting a investment into anything.

And am struggling to find a job to help support my daughter. Is there any ideas I can do without having to put money into it? Really would aprechate it. I need to have money for my baby girl and our two adopted kittens. Thank you for any help! I was a public school teacher for ten years, then I did two internships in the book publishing industry in NYC.

I realized A I was awesome at it. When my first son was born, I was able to split my days, working three days in the office and two days at home.

When I got pregnant with my second, my family and I relocated across the country—and Edgenuity let me stay on full-time remote. Cutting out all the costs and frustrations of a daily commute [which was 3 hours a day minimum living in NYC] and gaining back that time with my family has been priceless.

I have two boys. I have been working from home 4 years now as an email processor. It has been a huge blessing to me and my family. I just completed reading hundreds of posts relating to the vast opportunities to work from home. Some sell jewelry, some pedal cosmetics or essential oils.

Those are great ideas for the natural-born salesperson. Some are bloggers and write for income. That sounds interesting but requires a great level of writing skill. I read several posts from the creative and crafty who actually create things to sell on a popular shopping site.

My mind remains a blank slate. Medical Transcription is also a great option. I am currently enrolled in a Medical Transcription program and expect to be working by the beginning of the year.

Let me know if you have any questions. I'm expecting my first baby in about 6 more weeks and I've not been working for the past 5 month. I really want to join a program so I can have a job working from home. Do you take online classes? Office support or virtual assistant as they're sometimes called seems like a good job for a stay-at-home parent to try because it can all be done on the phone and computer.

As long as you have good organizational skills, you could make some good money doing that. It seems like your first suggestion of selling crafts online might be more hassle than profit you can make.

Buying supplies, packaging, shipping, advertising on websites, etc. For the tutoring option, try Tutor. I have a full-time job, but I tutor with them a few hours a week as extra income. The hours are flexible and convenient. General transcription is an excellent work-at-home career! I've been a work-at-home general transcriptionist for more than seven years now. It's a flexible career which requires little in start-up costs.

It was a godsend when my children were younger, and I was newly divorced. Unlike medical transcription, most general transcription companies will hire newbies, as long as they are able to pass the company test. How would I get trained to be a general transcriptionist? I am curious and in a similar situation and need to stay home with my little one. This sounds like something that would suit my situation to a "T".

Since i would be considdered as a newby yet a quick learner,please would you mind pointing me in the right direction. I would like you to elaborate a bit on stay at home General transcription jobs you mentioned. What kind of hours are worked during the day, week?

What is the range of income? Is it mostly contract work? Is the work steady? Are the jobs hard to come by? If you or anyone could elaborate on this that would be great. Now I am fulfilled and doing what I enjoy, simply working on the internet. This legit work from home opportunity gives me the freedom to help my husband and raise my baby.

I used to teach preschool; now I can have my own preschool in my home with my daughter—just the two of us. She gets the individual attention she needs, and so does hubby. And so do I! I love working from home and I work with a legit company. We specialize in helping stay at home moms and dads and seniors.

Here's one thing they are working on right now: An Army of Busy Moms is launching the greatest fold return by working together. Stay at home moms are great! I recently started my own online jewelry boutique. This is the perfect job for stay-at-home moms, or for anyone looking to earn a little extra cash. There is no out-of-pocket investment - just earn a commission on anything you sell. The amount of effort you put in determines how much you earn.

I found a great company that focuses on green living and staying home with your kids. Take a look at wb dot momsprovide dot com. Direct sales is a great way for me to make extra money. I love jewelry and have many friends, contacts in my town. I really love there style as it suits many women and men. What I also like about this option is that it makes me see and have contacts with people.

I either have small jewelry parties at home or host it at a friend's house. The investment is really small as I can also decide to sell the jewelry through their website. Best solution for me!

I have always supported women who wanted to work from home. That is why i have dedicated a proper page to provide assistance to the work at home moms. Lately, I have seen that blogging and creative product sales is what drives most earnings to a household run by a woman. I agree with all the methods above. They may not apply to everyone, but it is a place to start. One key side job is online marketing, which is growing so fast and anyone can be successful!

It will definitely be the fastest source of income for stay at home parents! You can find out more about it by watching a few short videos: I was a stay at home mother with six children. It helped with my sanity to feel like I was a accomplishing something outside of my children. The balance was great. I think for the 2 years that I was unemployed I have tried pretty much everything listed here and none of them gave me enough money lol. I'm pretty good at sewing and sold some handbags and backpacks on etsy..

I also tried photography, seems like everyone nowadays owns a professional camera and can do it themselves so that didn't work and I take pretty good pics.

I tried graphic design as I have a Bachelors on that.. If I'm ever unemployed again I'll try the exchange student deal.. I finally got lucky and found a full time job in my career software tester , I'm not a mom yet so I was just doing all that while I was looking for real work.. I even tried woodwork, making handmade frames for my photography..

I haven't sold enough to make back what I spent. I don't think I could ever be a stay at home mom unless I really owned a business I could handle from home. For now I'll take advantage of my routine that so many people complain about, but the money I make per hour doesn't even compare to trying to sell crafts or skills. I'm having a baby soon and although I wish I could stay at home once he's born, the stress I had while I was unemployed was unbearable I like my own money even though my husband works and provides, its just not the same so I know I won't be quitting anytime soon.

The only thing I could recommend for you ladies staying at home is a service.. I made more money taking photos for real estaters all u do is take pics of empty homes than I did with my purses which looked like Juicy Couture by the way, not simple ugly purses lol. Trying to sell things you make takes too much time for the lil reward. Offer a service, massage, cosmetology, baby or new born photos, child care from your home.. That's what I'd try next.

From my own experience I can also suggest making some extra cash on TaskRabbit. The best thing about TaskRabbit is that you can choose only those tasks that perfectly match your daily schedule and preferences.

And one more suggestion about selling - I know that lately it becomes hot and profitable as well to sell thrifted clothing on Instagram. Some women significantly contribute to their family budget digging for thrifted treasures in local thrift stores and then re-selling them on Instagram. There's also a possibility to connect IG account to Inselly. So this way of making some extra cash is also worth testing!

It took me a while but I finally found a way to make a few bucks online. I do surveys and I was very skeptical at first. But I did my research and there are some legit sites out there. Check out my blog and you can see my check for the month of June that I posted. Another great option is Amazon FBA Fulfillment By Amazon There are apps like Profit Bandit that will allow you to scan the barcodes of clearance items at local stores and know instantly if the item can be sold for a profit on Amazon.

The beauty of FBA is you simply ship all of the items at once to Amazon and they handle picking, packing and shipping your items when they sell so you can get back to your life. Thanks for sharing these great options. I agree that you can still be productive and earn money even if you stay home. I have another way of gaining income in a more efficient, privately and hassle-free manner. Join invisume where companies are the ones who look for prospect salespeople and match every person to them.

It gives choices to home-based job seekers and keeps all confidential. I am a SAHM who makes few bucks online by completing surveys. So far i have been paid by amazon gift cards and by paypal transfers. Register and complete surveys and keep earning. These few bucks can help you buy something you wanted to buy for baby but was hesitant to waste money. I'm a former lawyer who transitioned into direct sales 6 above. Best of all, I can spend more time with my twin toddlers.

We were recently featured on the Today Show. I am an independent consultant for Paparazzi Accessories. Awesome part is you can do most of your parties through Face book. Little to no prep. Contact me if you are interested, or if you just want to host a party and earn FREE jewelry: After I had our second and least child we decided that I should stay home with the kids. With the cost of day care these days, I actually couldn't afford to work.

Ha, how messed up is that? But I am very thankful because staying home with my children has been the best decision ever. It can be tiring at times but it's worth it. I get to be there for my children and give them the time and attention they need.

I also found that I can make money on survey sites to pay for birthdays and Christmas. It's actually pretty easy. It's nice being able to be home with the kids and to be able to make a little extra money. I made enough this year to take a small vacation to Disney world just on survey money. If you are a stay at home mom or dad and need a little extra cash I suggested you try it.

Establishing financial security for me is all online. I found a great way to get what I need for my business without doing any recruiting. These are great ideas for making money from home but many appeal more to women shopping, beauty, crafts, etc. I've got a great home biz guys really might like. No parties, no inventory, no meetings.

KnoMii virtual business cards are a great way to make money! All I do is text my biz card and my contacts see my biz card and can sign up right on the stop. The easiest biz I've ever had. I'm a stay at home mom and consultant for Thirty-one bags and gifts! Love their products and making my own hours so I can spend plenty of time with my baby girl! Love to have you on my team. Please message me for questions!

I recommend "Medical Coding" as a wonderful work from home option. Yes, you will need training. You can't just code medical records without having proper training. However, this is a real and promising career.

I used to work for "Career Step" and they have an awesome Medical Coding course. This is their website: Their training is done online and is self-paced. You could finish the program in 4 months but 6 months is probably more realistic. They do however give you up to a year to get it all done. They work specifically with a company called IOD inc.

If you want more info or have questions let me know katherine. I recommend "Medical Coding and Billing" as a wonderful work from home option. Credit Cards Personal Finance.
