having two children and finding a job that works around them is more often or not pretty difficult, so i'm looking at starting my own business (from home) i would appreciate as much help or information as to what would sell best whether it be clothing/accessories for children or clothing and accessories for men and women. Business names are also something i'm struggling on so i would really appreciate ideas.
Start doing some research as to what else is out there. You don't want to be selling the same products as other people. Also consider whether you want to sell locally, on Facebook etc, or buy a franchise of a brand or to set up your own online shop and website, as they'd need different sill sets and time.
I agree with MrsTawdry in that it's much easier to sell things you love. But there has to be a market for it, so research is essential. Another way to work from home is to sell your service - for example it might be possible to invest some of your money in training to be a bookkeeper at your local college. It's fairly cheap to learn, few overheads, and there are many small businesses who need bookkeepers. My sister does it and works it around her children. I also work from home as a freelance writer which again is very flexible and perfect around a growing family. Xx
I chose to look after dogs in my own home, for people who don't like to use Kennels. It's been hugely successful. You will need a licence from your local Council. Some Councils will not give a licence to you if you have children under 5 (mine are older).
Yes Teenmammy1 I thought of maybe doing hair accessories jewellery, does your friend but bulk from a wholesaler? If yes any recommendations of which wholesalers! Thanks for the advice it's made my decision final! X
