Work at Home Business Ideas for Women
Work at Home Business Ideas for Women
Hey Women, it’s Dawn Billings, founder of The Heart Link Women’s Network and TROVA Women Business Directory. You CAN support yourself and even your family with your own business. Other women, including myself and all of our Heart Link Network leaders and attendees, are doing it everyday and you can too.
Hitch your star to a growth trend- Develop a product or service that is complimentary to a popular product or service. Watch for growth trends in your magazines, etc. and then introduce your product or service that “goes with” that product. For example there was a woman who designed a new scarf for women with pockets for their IPod and IPhone – hands free talking and listening. Great idea.
Cater to a “discarded” market- You can do this by supplying products that are no longer “readily” available such as old car parts, etc. My brother-in-law works on Model T’s and he makes fan belts specifically for them that aren’t manufactured any more. Great idea!
Become a Freelance Copywriter
Combination packages – When women combine their gifts and talents, no telling what can happen. Try combining complimentary business or services or products to make your “combination package” business. An example for this would be…”Say…Husbands for Hire”. You would contact businessmen such as plumbers, electricians etc. to be your work force and then your business is the combination of these resources.

Find a Work from Home Organization and Products you love
for example, here are a few of our favorites:
Send Out Cards
and so many more
A shortage business- This is especially good for your local area. Find out WHAT is lacking and provide that service or business or product.
Create a demand product- You can even “make it up”! One company did it by offering an award to “find” a fictitious character and then even started producing T-shirts etc. to sell!
Offer to expand market areas for local businesses- Offer local businesses in your area a chance to become more nationally known by offering your marketing services.
Become a Forensic Accountant – One of the newer areas, and also the fastest growing area, of accounting is forensic accounting. Takes some school, but what doesn’t?
Start an Accounting Home Business or Small Business.
Freelance Writing : A Career from Anywhere!
Start a Photography Business from Home – Anyone with the right camera equipment, and the necessary skills can set up a home business, marketing photography. You need only to convert a room of your house into an office, and then you can work immediately.
Mortgage Brokering as a Freelance Business Opportunity- In the mortgage business there are two foundational areas of involvement. One is the position of “loan officer,” the other is working as a “broker.”
Start A Hauling/Shopping/Taxi Business- Here is a simple business anyone with a van or SUV can perform: haul stuff for other people who don’t have a way to do it themselves. This is a more needed service than you realize.
Niche Catering- Vegetarian Catering Business- Catering is a popular business. Starting a niche catering business will guarantee you a segment of the market.
Failed products- See if you can locate a product that has failed and see if you can re-invent it or reconstruct it someway to make it more useful and marketable. This is a real challenge for the creative problem solvers that need a challenge.
5 Reasons Master Resale Rights Are A Good Home Business Decision – Owning a website can and should be a very profitable endeavor. A good way to make money online is by selling ebooks and software with Master Resale Rights.
Keys To Starting Your Own Clothing Company- Ever wanted to start your own clothing company? Its not as difficult as you think. What do you absolutely need?
Under used talents and experience- There are probably a lot of older people in your community that have a lot of talent and experience that could be put together as a business or even as a book of information to be sold! Find these talented older people and help them while at the same time starting your own home business.
Judgement Recovery as a Small Business – The Judgment Recovery Business is an opportunity for enterprising individuals to earn a very good living enforcing court money judgments. The general methods by which they collect court judgments are the same state to state.
Throw away stuff- You can take things that some business throw away and then take it apart and start a good business, such as outdated computers, etc. there are still good parts in a lot of throw away things!
Mystery Shopping – An Excellent Way To Make Extra Money
Imitation businesses- If you see a good business that could stand a little competition, then give them some! Remember those one size clothes that came out that everybody was wearing?
Resale- Find a good product for this one and then start a resale business. You could even focus on one product such as “teapots”. Hunt at all garage sales, etc. and then start your own “teapot” business. Clocks is another good one! Fixing up old clocks
Packaging- Offer a packaging or wrapping service to your local merchants.
Selling Products on Ebay – One key for business success using eBay is sourcing products to sell
Event Planning- This is a good one ESPECIALLY if you also furnish the supplies and rentals needed! be sure to network with locals for providing ALL the extras such as invitations, banners, balloons, the works!

Work At Home Small Business Ideas. Affiliate Programs, Auctions, Bartering, Consulting, Drop Ship, Mail Order, Mystery Shopping, Real Estate, Travel, Yard Sales.
Home Based Business Dropship Wholesale. Home based Business Dropship Package, Easy Conversions!
Information or consulting business- Offer locals your “research” ability! You can “find” what they need and will spend the time to find it, example: A company uses steel for their products…your service to that company could be to locate all wholesale steel companies, compare prices, quality, shipping info, etc., saving the company valuable time!
REALLY small repair business- How many of you have little broken china cups, figurines, etc. that are still waiting to be repaired? Why not offer this service to your community? Have them “box it up” and bring it over.
Herbal recipe books- Could be presented for cooking or herbal qualities, etc. Might even sell little herb pots.
Menu Planners- You could provide a family’s menu for the week complete with a shopping list of things they will need. To be really industrious, you could even offer shopping services.
Weight Loss buddies- You could offer your “companionship” to people who want to lose weight and need someone there to make sure they are following their diet, doing their exercises and drinking their water! I myself would PAY for this service!!
Home organizer- where you go in and make a home organizing solution plan or actually do the organizing for them.
Home business set-up service- where you consult with someone over all the procedures, zoning laws, home office set up tips, etc. You could even network with local businesses for suggesting their services as part of your package such as CPA’s, office furniture stores, printing companies, etc.
Newsletter Service- There are probably SEVERAL businesses in your area that would like to mail out a newsletter about their business but do not have the time.
Extra curricular activity manager- a service that you could provide for Mothers who work and need someone to make sure their children get to go to all their after school athletics and activities.
Recycle clothes- where you take old clothes such as jeans etc. and make purses, bags, book covers and more out of them. Add a little crafty art and voila!
Heirloom maker- You could make family heirlooms out of ordinary items such as a tablecloth whereby you paint or stitch family names, birthdays or more! An idea would be a tablecloth that was used every year on a child’s birthday where all the kid’s names who attended the party, were added each year.
101 uses- This can be done 101 ways!! 101 hamburger recipes, 101 ways to to organize space, 101 ways to do anything…and then sell the pamphlet or book.

Handmade paper books- another popular item right now is the handmade journals and diaries that have unique handmade paper in them.
