Simple Small Business Ideas for Women: Start for Cheap or Free

Small Business Ideas for Women

Starting your own online business from home is a flexible way to make money as a stay at home mom (or dad!).

You can choose how often you work, when you work, and base your growth on the amount of time you can reasonably spend on your business.

Starting a small business can fit easily into your life as long as you have realistic expectations. While you have small kids you may only be able to invest 10 hours per week, but in the future (when kids are older and more independent) you’ll be able to work full time on your business.

How do I go about starting a small business?

Starting a small business can be as easy as starting a business Facebook page to share your business and start promoting your services or goods.

You may also want to invest in training and resources that will help you to grow your business.

As you grow your small business, you will definitely want to increase your online presence by starting a blog (website).
