Kid Friendly Businesses for Budding Mompreneurs

Updated on April 10, 2011

When one becomes a mom your priorities may need to be re-looked at. The focus is not so much on self but more on the needs and wants of your off springs.

Coping with both kids and business is never easy. Time that you have set aside for both your kids and business may overlap into each other and make it difficult for you to decide which issue is of more important to you at that particular moment in time.

Child or client? Client or Child? Which one should come first? It would definitely leave me in a dilemma and it may make me regretting my selection if the result afterward is less then ideal.

Here are some business ideas which are mom friendly.

1. Setting up a Online Store.

There are many different products which you can sell online.

You can set up a Etsy shop to showcase your handmade items like ring pillows and graphic designs. Many moms are passionate in handicraft and by displaying and selling their unique wares it is a good way of them to earn some income.You can even sell your wares on Ebay and other auction sites.

If handicraft is not your cup of tea you could always sell items through drop shipping kids apparel or related items.

2. Setting up a blog

Blogs are set up for many different purposes nowadays. One common reason is to gain exposure and build up awareness of oneself in the blogsphere.

There are many different platforms which you can build your blog from. These range from FREE to paid versions depending on what basic/advance features you require.

I personally use my parenting blog as a platform to build up my authority and expert status in my chosen niche of parenting. Simultaneously I have attempted to market my virtual real estate through offering sponsered Ad spaces on the blog among the ways I try to generate revenue from my writings.

3. Taking part in surveys & online promotions.

Certain sites like Freebie Trading pay you for taking part in their promotions online. It is really useful and I personally know people who have earned thousands of dollars from doing such trading with working only a few hours each day. [ However this path is not suitable for me as most of the sites are catering for a USA based audience.]

4. Providing Home Based Services

If you have young kids it can be quite difficult to find babysitters or nannies as they are quite costly. Providing services from home like starting a playgroup or nanny service would mean that you could look after your children while at the same time earn and income.

Other kinds of Services would include offering freelance writing and being a virtual assistant for others.

5. Setting up a Coaching Site

Being a teacher by profession this came about quite naturally for me. Having a coaching site I am able to offer to my clients a learning package on a chosen topic which includes tutorials, videos, audios and even e-books. Clients pay for the exclusive information which I have to offer and the opportunity to interact one to one with me and with other members of the selected community.

These are only some suggestions which you can consider.Your choices are only limited by your aspirations.
