Sometimes, there’s not an option that appeals more to bust moms and dads than starting a business where they can work from home. Not only is working from home very comfortable, you can plan everything around your kids. You can then spend your time in the most efficient way possible. The following 7 business ideas are perfect for busy moms and dads. Take a look:
Freelance writing is a great choice if you’ve always had a flair for the written word. You could make money doing what you like best! You may write ‘ghost’ pieces for websites, for example, or even product descriptions. You can usually find jobs available on sites like People Per Hour, but you can even occasionally find ongoing work by searching on regular job sites.
Gift Basket Making
Think you’re creative? You could put together gift baskets as a business. Your job would be to listen to your customers, and get as much information from them as possible so you can create a fantastic gift basket. Find out the occasion, their price range, who it’s for, and possibly what they like and don’t like. Then all you need to do is make it look pretty, and voila!
Good at cleaning things? You could start your own house cleaning business. This isn’t working from your home, but it’s close. You’ll need to be professional as you’re going into client’s houses, and you’ll need to make sure you have relevant checks in place. You can take on as many or as little clients as you like.
A Spa/Beauty Business
If you’re qualified in beauty, you could always create your own spa/beauty room at home. This would be perfect in the spare bedroom or the garage. You can then advertise and clients can come to your house. You could even purchase mobile supplies and go to them, if they need you to.
If you’re good with pets, then pet sitting could be right up your street. You could offer to both house and pet sit for an even larger amount of money. You’ll need to be willing to treat the pet like the owner would and will need to be able to keep their house tidy too. It may not be as simple as sitting around watching TV!
Selling Crafts Online
If you’re quite creative and enjoy making different kinds of crafts, you could do this online. Sites like eBay and Etsy will allow you to sell your wares and make a profit. You don’t need to worry about postage costs either, as there are many ways you can save money.
Teaching an Instrument
If you can play an instrument, why not teach others the same skill? You can make lots of money by the hour and you’ll be doing something you really enjoy.
