To become a housewife and devote all your time to family, hobby and self-perfection seems to be a great temptation, although sometimes the need for self-fulfillment becomes the priority and you feel that the only way to satisfy it is to become financially independent, at least to some extent. Self-assertion, however, is not the only thing which may make you want to turn yourself into a business woman – financial factor plays the role as well. Now, in the times of economic recession, your husband’s salary may be not enough for comfortable living, especially if your family doesn’t have any other income sources.
So how can you earn in case you do not have an opportunity to find a full-time job?
The answer depends on your imagination, skills and resources you are ready to invest. If you are not sure what exactly it may be, consider the following ideas.
1. You like cooking?
Great! Selling cakes from home is a perfect option – the demand is high throughout the year, while home-made products will always be better valued than those in the shops. Find out here how to start this small business.
2. Another very “family” option is to sell pets, let it be puppies or kittens.
Do you know how much a husky puppy costs? What about a Scottish fold kitten? Don’t forget that apart from financial benefit, you will get a much more valuable one – a loving and loyal creature that deserves the status of a family member. Sounds great? More information here.
3. How about making an online shop on some trading platform, let’s say Etsy?
If you are good at knitting, bead weaving or clothes sewing – this is definitely for you!
4. What can you say about your mathematical abilities?
If you do have them, try making small investments and trading online. It would probably be hard to start earning on stock or share markets right from the start, especially if you don’t have any previous experience, but the options for beginners may be highly profitable too – high frequency trading is one of them. Unsure about a broker? Glenmore Investments would be a perfect place to start.
P.S. yes, it’s risky, but you can’t actually avoid risks as an entrepreneur, right?
It may be really profitable and interesting – there are no doubts that 99% of your female friends want a photo session for themselves or their kids. Besides, consider becoming a wedding photographer – the demand will always be high. Here are a few photos for your inspiration.
The number of ideas is unlimited. The main one is to set yourself an aim and not be afraid to try new things. Good luck!
