Try to think about something that you naturally incline towards and avoid fields that you do not have good feelings about.

Below you can find a list of some online business ideas I have collected so far:
- virtual assistant
- social media influencer or online niche community creator
- content, ghostwriter or journalist
- coaching (personal or professional)
- consulting (any field from marketing or accounting to renewable energy)
- online tutoring
- authoring e-books (kids’ books, fiction, non-fiction)
- online courses
- translating, editing and proofreading
- web development

- online investment
- app development
- affiliate marketing

Moms in those groups spread positive energy needed during overwhelming moments. Furthermore, keeping in mind the reasons why you are doing this, can help to keep you on track as well.
Being fully aware of your capabilities and resources, do not be too harsh on yourselves. Step by step, you will slowly learn what and how to do it.
All the best,
