I’d planned to start a children’s party planning business. Not my main job as I work PT in a good career however just something I love doing and would make some extra pennies save for my DC. A Good friend has just launched exactly what I planned. There’s no way either of us would have known, just bad luck and timing of my part.
Maybe it’s kist not my calling just now but what else could I do (children related) that doesn’t involve needing to rent premises or employ anyone else. I’m currently on maternity leave so have a bit of time to put a plan in place.
I think you could still do a children's party planning business. Maybe you could do a children's baking party business where they bake cookies etc. You could also produce your own cookie or cupcake making kit to sell.
If you do not want do baking maybe choose a skill you are good at e,g jewellery making, crafts etc. I know and ex nurse who does first aid workshops for children. They learn about First Aid and get a certificate.
If not just go with your original idea and do your party planning.
