5 Flexible Home-Based Business Ideas for Women

5 Flexible Home-Based Business Ideas for WomenBy Holly Reisem Hanna

Many years ago when I started brainstorming work at home business ideas, many occupations came to mind, event planner, professional organizer, and personal concierge. But when I asked myself, “How do I want my life to look?” it didn’t include running all around town or working on holidays or weekends.

When I sat down and mapped out my dream work at home job, it involved working from inside my home with a schedule that was super flexible; meaning I could work any hours from anywhere in the world. While there are a lot of work at home business opportunities out there — many of them do require you to work standardized hours.

So if you’re looking for a truly flexible business to start, here are 5 ideas to get you started.

1) Blogger — Do You Want to Start Your Own Online Publication?

Obviously, I’m a huge advocate for starting your own blog. But let me tell you why blogging is such a great business to start.

  • It builds a business platform for other opportunities like freelance writing, coaching, speaking, marketing, or selling products.
  • Showcases your expertise.
  • Introduces you to people and opportunities you would not have been privileged to before. (more…)

Can You Really Make Money From Home by Blogging?

Can You Really Make Money From Home by Blogging?By Holly Reisem Hanna

My first experience with a blog was back in 2005. A friend of mine told me that I needed to check out this celebrity gossip blog called, Pink is the New Blog. After reading a few posts, I was hooked. Not only did I enjoy the daily gossip, but I loved the casual and personal nature of his writing. Reading this blog became my morning ritual and it soon got me thinking … Is this his full-time job? How is he making money off of his blog? And how did land big time TV interviews?

Fast forward to 2007.

After the birth of my daughter, I quit my full-time job as an RN Clinical Research Coordinator and became a full-time stay at home mom. But after 9 months of play-dates, mommy and me classes, and a dwindling bank account, I felt the urge to make some money and exercise my brain. I looked online for different work at home jobs, but the majority of my time was spent weeding through scams and sifting through websites to find all of the information that I was looking for. It was at this time that I decided to create my own a monetized blog.

Fast forward to 2009.

After 15 months of doing research, creating content, and having a designer create a custom theme for me — I was finally able to launch in March of 2009. It took me 3 months to get my first advertiser and from there it has continued to grow and is now my full-time career. While I’m unable to disclose how much I make due to non-disclosure agreements with clients, I can tell you how I’m making money blogging and that yes, you can make REAL money blogging. (more…)

Normally, I’m very practical when it comes to social media hype, but with Pinterest I’ve seen major results from my own efforts, as well as I know many bloggers who are having incredible results, because of pins that have gone viral.

In fact, Mandy had a “home tour” pin that has been pinned close to a million times and Meagan had one post go viral which in turn, skyrocketed her earnings for 2013.

Still not sure about the hype? Check out these stats.
