It has never been easier to work from home. All you need is a computer and be willing to learn.
Here are a few ideas of jobs from home for housewives…
If you are a member of a local writing group or simply enjoy creative writing why not turn your hobby into a means to make money? Produce booklets, CD’s, e-books, or ezines of short stories. Set up a website to promote your products. Learn about the many Internet marketing techniques. Supply local shops. Choose a niche market for your stories, for example stories about gays for gay people, or romance stories.
Another job from home for housewives is a ‘souvenir cosmetics’ business. Your products will have a local name or theme. You purchase cosmetic items such as lipsticks, powder compacts and nail varnish from established manufacturers. Then you package them under your own label.
If you think this is a crazy idea, Ann and Sarah Levinson started their company, RIPE, with re-packaging established cosmetic product. They both like wearing nail varnish, but couldn’t find a colour they liked. So they mixed their own shades of varnish. Friends and classmates liked these colours so much, the sisters decided to market them.
They purchased bottles form a local beauty supplier and attached hand made labels. They first supplied a local boutique. Later Macy’s store stocked them. The business soon topped over $1million a year.
Do you like lingerie? Tiffany James set up the company Undercover Wear. She sold lingerie and underwear at house parties. She added naught-but-nice underwear to her purely romantic range and within eight years sales were over $1million a year.
