Women generally are not meant to only give birth to children but also
to add color to life. Nowadays, even the men don’t want to marry a
woman to be a house wife but a working class woman. It obvious that most women
belief that once you pass the age of employment you can’t get to do any
work again. That’s not true. If you are a woman and range between 40
and above, I’ve got good news for you. There are a lot of part time jobs
that can be done on the internet while sitting at home. It will only
demand 2 to 3 hours of your time daily but will fetch you good dollars.
If you’re one of this group of would be online entrepreneurs the good news is that there are so many options and ways for you to make money at home without heading back into the 9 to 5 work arena the hardest part is not finding a list of business ideas but choosing one and focusing on it over time until you get the results you want from it.
So, that said, here are a few business ideas for women to wet your appetite;
Start a Virtual Assistant Business
A Virtual Assistant is a person who provides quality support services
to clients, without being present at a clients workplace or office.
Services such as this are becoming more popular and many employers are
looking to the internet for this kind of support thanks to technology
such as email, instant messaging and the internet as a whole. This is
the way of the future so a move in this direction could see a long term successful business model being developed if you have the right skill set to make this work.
Here are your job options as a VA.

- Start a Home Based Secretarial Business
The world of online business
is fast paced so don’t expect an easy ride if you choose to work from
home as a freelance secretary. You will need basic office skills and a
good knowledge of the common administrative computer programs out there.
You will also be expected to have excellent communication skills and be
able to produce high quality work on time every time.
I believe that behind every successful business
there sits a highly organised and effective secretary or office
administrator. If this is you and you can learn how to grow your
business and client base you may just find your skills in high demand
- Start a Life Coach Business
There are several training programs
out there that offer certification if you want to become a life coach.
It isn’t a requirement and these days it seems far easier to call
yourself a Life Coach than anything else but it can help to stand out
from the crowd so look around and pick up a few unique qualifications if
you wish to pursue this walk of life. The biggest qualities you will
need will be a positive attitude, great communication skills and an
ability to listen and empathise with your potential clients and then to
help them turn their lives around!
Women are establishing
themselves online and making a real success of mastering social media
and implementing their natural networking and communication skills
within the online arena. If you have reached a point in your life where
you know it’s time for you to step up and take control of your own
future then your own business might be just around the corner.
life feels a little lonesome out there in the cold and you want to drag
your husband or partner along for the ride (and he’s willing) then
perhaps a business model where both of you can work together from home is more in line. Let’s see…
