Times are changing, and the role of women is changing, both in private and public spheres. Women are increasing working at high profile jobs and entrepreneurial positions. But for many reasons, some women prefer not to have a full time day job. Some of them want freedom and are sick of working for other people. Others want a bit of extra, easy money on the side. Others still are simply not permitted to have a proper job. All these women can very easy start a small business of their own. So thats the reason, i wanted to share some best business ideas for women to become a entrepreneur on own rather to depend on others for a job.
Do you need some guidance in choosing a business for yourself? Here are some questions you can ask yourself. Why are you entering into the business? What do you expect to achieve from it? What is it that makes you happy? What are you good at doing? What would you like to learn to do? Answer these questions for yourself, and then go through the list below and see what best suits you. So without further ado, here are top ten business ideas for women.
1. Start a boutique.
This is one of the most common businesses that women start, as it can even be started from their homes with minimum investment on training, quality products and basic equipment.. A boutique or an hair salon is also the most preferred because it allows women to enjoy their jobs and socialize with other women around them. It is fun and fulfilling at the same time.
2. Become a Yoga Trainer.
This is the job for you if you are already interested in Yoga. Yoga is increasingly in demand nowadays as women often sign up for these classes along with their kids to stay fit, or even people who have problems with stress. You can do a small course to certify yourself as a trainer and then simply start teaching! You can make a business out of teaching Yoga, meditation and breathing techniques.
3. Start a business with your hobby.
Every woman has a hobby (not that men don’t)! Be it cooking, painting, sewing and embroidering, making rangoli, or any other creative hobby you might have, try and think of a way to convert this hobby into a business. You could start a mess, or you could sell your artwork, this way having fun and making money while having fun!
4. Start a counselling business.
Apart from psychological or emotional counselling for which you must do a diploma, there are many other types of counselling services you can offer. There is intercultural training for women who are moving to a different country, financial counselling, etc. Women are naturally suited to listening and guiding others, so it is a good option for us. You can even choose to start this business online.
5. Start a pet shop/Be a dog walker.
Do you like animals? There are lots of families that have a pet nowadays and are willing to pay good money on accessories, food and services for them. You can start a pet shop with trinkets and luxury items for the dogs and kitty-cats. You could also start a pet grooming business, or a pet-care. Or if you would not like to invest a lot of money, you can choose to be a dog walker instead.
6. Start a daycare or a crèche.
Most women love kids and love taking care of them too. Once your own kids grow up, sometimes the house feels empty. Here’s a solution to that loneliness from which you can also make some money, by starting a daycare or a crèche! Spending the day with kids can bring a smile to your face. But if little children drive you crazy, you can also start a daycare for senior citizens, who sometimes need it just as much as the tiny tots.
7. Start teaching.
There are lots of different things you can teach, even apart from the traditional English and Maths/Science tuitions that kids need. If you speak a foreign language, you can teach it to people in your community. (If you are fluent, you can also get well-paying translation jobs online.) You can also teach basic computer skills like MS Office, which are necessary for almost anyone to get a job nowadays. You can also take English classes for grownups or teach an instrument if you like. There are opportunities abound in this field.
8. Start a Blog.
It is very easy and fulfilling to make money from a blog, and it’s especially fun because it can be about anything that you like. You can start a travel blog if you adore travelling. A travel website will be more than happy to employ you to write about your travel experiences. Or you can start a blog about food, a food blog or a cooking blog if you excel in the kitchen. If you’re an artist, you can use your blog to do the publicity for your artwork and use it to sell your pieces.
9. Freelance Writing.
If starting a blog and putting your own personal experiences online is not your cup of tea, you can also earn quite a bit of money writing for others. You can find your niche in the freelance writing business and pick a company who writes about things you love. For example, if you love trekking, you can find an outdoor camping company and write for their website. Or if you’re from a technical work background, you can write for more pay with reference to your work experience.
10. Website Management.
From freelance writing, you can also diversify into website management, which is more creative and more well-paid than freelance writing. It is a much more inclusive kind of job, where you have to handle everything from finding advertisers, hiring writers (or writing yourself), editing and scheduling content, publicity, and more.
And that’s it! Choose and get started with your own business. It’s critical to remember to be confident, and that everyone makes mistakes while starting out. Keep on motivating yourself and be aware of the market atmosphere. Are you already a working businesswoman? Be sure to tell us about yourself in the comments!
