Every woman has a business mind!
I realized this fact just today morning when I saw a poor old lady walking on the footpath with bundles of newspaper envelopes in one hand and a dirty pouch of money in the other. This was just a simple sight that I, and many of you, see almost daily while going out for work; it could be a similar sight replacing the envelopes with garlands or gajras.
This is not about the envelopes, of course.
This is about the business prospects. Obviously, that woman did not earn that much so she could become a millionaire, but think about the idea she implemented and took it further to the streets to sell what she could, and finally made money.
She thought about her basic needs and the path which could fulfill them. I call upon YOU to think about YOUR needs. As soon as you do that, you’ll have so many things popping up at distant crests of your brain. Just keep noting them down, it’ll make sense later.
Women have the plus-point of having everything around them very close to their hearts. They can, if they want, turn anything into a business and make surplus money. There are a million business ideas for women that they can actually implement. We’ll cover just 15 because it goes out of the scope of a blog article – otherwise, it’ll become a small ebook. I think I should create an ebook for you, great idea, thank you. 🙂
If you are a woman or know any woman who needs (more than wants) to start a business to make money for herself and her family, continue reading and share this article with her.
For today, I’ll be focusing on the ideas that women in India can choose from, very easily, and make money out of it. All of them need not go with your skills, talents, interests and mindsets, so pick the one that goes with your personality.
Here’s the list. . .
1. Fashion designing
If you have an interest in trendy fashion clothing and accessories, start creating your own designs on paper and either get them made in real or you can also approach the already selling fashion brands for selling to them your designs. Yes, initially this selling designs part would be difficult but eventually after meeting them, discussing and concluding, you can take this as a profession too.
It is one of the best business ideas for women who wish to focus on their families and professional lives equally. You can use your blogging skills for other individuals or businesses as this is a very important part of any business today.
3. Fitness guru
Everybody wants to be fit, but very fewer people actually work towards it. If fitness is your passion, you can start your own classes that teach yoga, aerobics, Zumba or even a gym if budget is not a problem.
People are very eager to stay healthy and eat healthy these days, but find themselves completely lost as they get the innumerous amount of suggestions regarding diets, etc. So, you can grab this opportunity and first educate yourself on the diets and nutrients with a professional course, and then proceed to become a nutritionist. You can see your clients either in your own clinic or at home itself.
There are some small businesses who cannot afford to maintain records at their company premises. They look for this work to be done by freelancers, and here you can help them do that. You can manage tasks like bank reconciliation, e-filling, service tax, sales tax, payroll etc. if you have the interest.
This is the easiest one when it comes to business ideas for women. Most of you might have an incline towards the food-side. If you really love food, this can be a highly paying business as there is never a shortage of food lovers. You can start your own little restaurant where initially you can survive by preparing your favorite food items and serving them to people on your own.
7. Tiffin service
So many people stay away from their homes and miss the home-made food in their colleges and offices. If you feel their pain, and have a good hand in the kitchen, starting a daily tiffin service can be a good option because you’ll always have buyers for your homely food.
8. Dance or Singing
If you went for dance or singing classes in your childhood, you’d know that how many girls used to come to that place to learn that skill. If you know any particular style, either start giving lessons in a room at your house or even in some music institute.
The art of photography can be evaluated high if you have the skill, or are ready to learn it. You can either work as a freelancer, or for a company, or even sell your photographs online.
Being a photographer, you can create your own photo blog. You should read how to do photo blogging here.
Having so many working ladies, rather mothers, around, there is an open opportunity to build a creche at your home or somewhere. This is a need for such women and you can fulfill that need with the help of some other ladies like you who want to be engrossed in some work for the whole day and earn good money.
11. Interior designing
This could be a very luring option for you as you’ll be able to get others’ homes designed and decorated beautifully from inside, and you can happily take all the credits
12. Mobile Beauty Services
Women, having a very busy schedule on all the days of the week, would not be able to enjoy a luxurious hair spa or gold facial, and even pedicure and manicure, to name some. You can become a medium for providing these beauty services to such busy ladies at their home, or wherever they wish.
13. Event Management
If you think you’re a good manager, and able to multi-task any time of the day, utilize your good quality in doing the same for others and getting paid for this. Patience is the key when you have to manage a lot of things at once. You can either create your own small company or become an individual event manager.
14. Pet Shop
If you love little animals, have a puppy shop. Well, I’m against the selling of animals, still, for business suggestion purpose I’m saying that dogs, cats, even aquariums can be sold for good value because many people look for buying these.
If you are creative enough, this can be a rewarding business. Making beautiful candles, normal wax and gel wax, and having a shop specialized in this would attract many people. Many a time, if your location is one that tourists love, they’ll definitely buy candles as souvenirs. These candles find places for home decorations and for places like huge hotels etc. You can also have a shop as a part of a big market where lakhs of people visit every day.
So, now you’ve got the idea. These might give rise to some more. Get your mind to work and start preparing.
Leave more ideas in the comments if you’ve seen others already working on something. It’ll be a great inspiration for other women.
