Some of my high school friend know that I work from home and become an online based wedding photographer, lately they asked me, is there any housewife passive income ideas that they can do from home while taking care of their kids?
BIG YES and if you had the same questions too in your mind than I hope simple things that I will share with you today will inspire you as well. When I was a kid I don’t have any much time to spend with my mother cause she has to leave in a big city for working on oil company and I live with my grand mother in a smaller city that can be access by 10 hours train.
It’s not a good experience at all even I’m feeling so sad when my mom is gotta go and leave me again for 1 month. I remember that I always crying on the train station and feel so bad when I saw my mom’s train is ride up but during that time both me and my wife don’t have other options. It’s not my mom’s false cause lately I knew that she is a single parent following getting divorce with my dad.
When I’m grew up and finished my major in university I always thinking about how to stay at home and get money for living so I was canceled all my job vacancies in Dubai, Malaysia, and Singapore than built my own blog to promote my photography services with Apple iMac 21.5-inch.

I sure that million of housewife in this planet want to get their passive income, they always want to earn money while having a pedicure or colouring their hair but the fact is most of housewife that I ever know is having much more complain rather than having a good will to achieve their goals.

Why Every Wife Must Be Able to Earn Money by Herself?
I love my wife so much and I realize that having Nina in my side is the greatest moment that I had in my life. But as a son from single parent mom, I want to let every wife know that they must be able to earn money by herself. It doesn’t matter how much money that your husband got every month but having your own income is priceless, you can do anything with your money and it increase your self confidence right in front of your husband and family.
If I could share than there are 3 (three) reason why every wife must be able to earn money by her self:
1 – To Increase Self Confidence In Front Of Husband and Family
The hardest problem for you for being a wife is when you want to help someone like family or close friend and you need money for it but your husband tell you that you don’t need to do that. You may have the greatest husband on this planet but if you know that he is just starting his career and don’t earn much money but you must help your family than your problem is getting started.
When you can earn money by your self no matter how much is it than you gonna stand rise and have a great confidential in front of the others. Every women in this globe really need this just to feel fair and balance between man and woman.
2 – Be Ready If Your Husband Leave You
It can be happen to anyone but the great thing when my mom get divorced is she already have her own job in national oil company so I can say that my mom get better money than my father. By the way I have a sister, a daughter from my aunty, about 2 years ago I heard that her husband is having another girl friend and he often angry and do violence to my sister. Her husband want to get divorce and choose his new girl friend even he already got 2 kids.
About a year ago I heard that their divorce is cancel cause my sister too afraid loosing her husband cause there is no one can give a good living except her husband, it’s too insane isn’t it! I love my sister so much cause I grew with her together but lately I know that her husband do bad things since the past few years and the most saddest moment is my niece and nephew know how hard they life is.
If someday you got this situation than it’s already too late to consider, so even your husband love you so much than you must able to earn money bu your self. It might be small amount but it doesn’t matter at all cause all you need to do for the very first time is simply earn money by your self.
3 – There are Always Women’s Need That Every Husband Don’t Ever Think That It’s Important
I married Nina on December 2009 and I regularly give her money in a daily, weekly, or monthly. Whenever I got a photography deal than I always give some to Nina just a symbolise that I love her so much. Surprisingly I always found that she do some good things related to family or something matter without ask some money from me.
When I ask her why not asking me for money than Nina always tell me that “It’s just a simple thing and I don’t want disturbing your photography income”
There is always a moment like this in your life and if you can realize these housewife passive income ideas than you gonna so happy you can do some things that you think important without feeling bad to your husband.

4 – Making a Hotel Review on My Blog
If you see my Maldives wedding photos than you could know that I’m staying in 5 star luxury resort together with my couple. At this time I earn as cheap as 4% hotel commission from Agoda. I knew that you might ever stay in a hotel too than go make a review about it, take the photos from your camera, I use Canon EOS M Red Colour by the way and make a story about this hotel on my blog.
When someone book the hotel that I reviewed or any other hotels which is still using my affiliate links than I could earn around 4% of commission. Hotel in Maldives is quite expensive so if they stay in a 5 star luxury hotel cost $500/night and they stay for 2 nights it means I got $1,000 of total sales than I could earn around $40 of commission from one single guest.
If you using Agoda for affiliate than the threshold is $200 which is mean if you can reach those amount than you could withdraw your money, take a look for this screen shots below,
