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…)

Interview with Anne Hebert – Independent Marketing Consultant and Writer

Interview with Anne Hebert - Independent Marketing Consultant and WriterTell us a little bit about yourself and your entrepreneurial journey. 

I moved to Austin, Texas after attending college in San Antonio. While I was looking for a full-time job, I worked as a freelance writer for two different companies. Then I took a job with a public affairs firm, where I worked for just under three years before I decided to start my own business. I’ve now been self-employed for almost 20 years.

How are you making money? 

I have several regular clients for whom I provide ongoing services, as well as returning and new clients who need one-off project help.

Give us an example of how you landed one of your first clients.

I had a friend design a logo and business cards, and I created a simple tri-fold brochure that listed my services. I sent it to everyone I had met or worked with, and I followed up with emails. (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…)

Interview with Nikula Gandhi – Owner of SweetDreamzVille

Inteview with Nikula GandhiTell us a little bit about yourself and your entrepreneurial journey.

My name is Nikula. As a mom of two boys, ages 4 and 6, I enjoy the outdoors and love spending time with the kids.

Since 2008, right after my first child, I started designing sleepwear for him. I wanted something that my child could relax in after his bath, at the same time, was durable enough to play, tumble, and wrestle in (boys will be boys). I could not find much at a reasonable price that was fun, elegant, devoid of Disney characters, and of course soothing to their skin.

So I started to design and tailor sleepwear for my kids. It all started with a great idea and a little hard work. Today, I proud provide quality sleepwear direct to your doorstep.

What did you do before launching your own business?

I have a Masters in Biomedical Engineering and was working as a Senior Test Engineer designing and testing heart catheters. After my 1st child, I switched my full-time hours to part-time, so that I could spend more time with my kids. But even being part-time, I still felt like I was working all the time. It felt like I wasn’t spending any time with my kids, so eventually I quit my job.

How did you fund your business?

This is self-funded business. (more…)
