8 Business Ideas for Stay-at-Home Parents

Earning as stay-at-home parents has never been easier! With the technology advancing every day and little money, you can even put up your own business and be your own boss. Here are a couple of ideas to help you settle on what business to start.

  1. College consulting business. You can help parents with the whole college process; from application to financial aid. You can help them find a suitable university that favors both parents and the child, help the child pass the entrance exam and help them with the financial aid process. There’s nothing parents would want more than to send their children to the best university while staying inside the budget.
  2. Freelance writing. To jumpstart this, write about things you’re passionate about and things you’re an expert at. In doing so, you will provide quality articles that can help you get noticed by website owners that are looking for quality writers. It’s okay to be rejected a couple of times at first, just keep on working and it will pay off soon enough.
  3. Gardening business. If you’re not so much into technology, you can go for the gardening business. You can grow medicinal herbs, herbal teas, culinary herbs and herbs used in candles and aromatherapy. You can be a supplier to soap and perfume factories too if you choose to grow flowers like orchids. You can also have a flower arrangement business on the side for weddings, funerals and baptisms. If you have a huge space, you can try to plant vegetables and then sell them.
  4. Home healthcare agency. Senior citizens who are having a hard time taking care of themselves and doing thing themselves but don’t want to live in a retirement home and want to stay at their own are your target market here. You can advertise your business in community centers and proceed to connect them with the live-in nurse that suits their preferences. Be sure to hire people with the best skills and always be updated with medications and laws regarding your business and its process.
  5. Housekeeping. If you love to clean houses, this one is for you. Some people don’t want to go through the trouble of (or maybe they just don’t have the time to) sweeping, mopping and wiping all over the house.
  6. Music teaching. If you have more knowledge than most in music, you can do this. Parents, especially nowadays, are all for developing their child’s full potential, mostly in music. If you know how to read notes, know how to play an instrument very well and have a passion for teaching kids no matter how difficult it may be, you can succeed with this business. Advertise in schools and daycare centers. Usually, first performances are expected to not be charged but make sure you’ll charge for the next ones.
  7. Personal chef. If you know how to cook really well, you can be a personal chef. Over the years, the number of people who are conscious about what they eat have grown. So instead of eating at just any restaurant and being nosy about the ingredients that are used, they would just hire a personal chef to use the ingredients that they prefer. Remember that you most likely need your own things to cook in so you’ll look more professional.
  8. Wedding planner. Having great taste and great style will pay off in this business. Some couples want to save themselves the stress of planning every single detail in their wedding and just gives the planner the venue and the theme that they want and asks the planner to make their dream wedding happen within their budget range. This business requires exceptional organizing and bargaining skills.
