business ideas for women

There are several business ideas that women should consider, and the following is a coherent list that you may find interesting.  There are many more…this is just a select few.

While this list is primarily developed for women, it is also suitable for men as well. As a female entrepreneur, there are various challenges and societal standards that we have to overcome if we want to become successful.

By embracing the appropriate work values and the making informed decisions, we increase the likelihood of achieving the ideal results with our unique business startups each time. Some of these top business ideas include:

1.Amazon FBA

The Amazon FBA program is a program that allows users to send the merchandise they want to sell directly to an amazon warehouse. When one of the items are sold, Amazon will handle all the packaging and delivery procedures for your needs at a specific fee. This is an excellent solution for those who want to sell online without having to spend several hours dealing with shipping issues. Jessica Larrew is an excellent example in this category.


Making money through blogging is an excellent venture. You literally are your own boss, and you get paid for expressing your innermost thoughts, ideas and preferences as well. My advice here is to blog about something that you are passionate about and pick a niche that is not too broad–one that will have your audience coming back for more.  There are various courses online that teaches how to start blogging the right way.  Wealthy Affiliate is a great place to learn how you make money blogging. Check out my review on Wealthy Affiliate here.

3.Freelance writing

For those who have a passion for writing and content development, there are various content mills online that you should consider.

There are various direct clients that seek reliable writers to help with their web management needs. Some reputable companies are:

  • Fiverr.com
  • Hires.com
  • Upwork.com
  • The barefoot writer.com
  • The spruce.com

I also recommend flexjobs.com; you can not only find writing jobs here, but you can also find other legitimate work at jobs here.

4.Software development

Developing programs online is also another excellent technique for making money. With that being said, this is a venture that requires some level of experience in coding and some level of technical skills as well.

Indeed.com is a great place to find work software development jobs; as well as, my favorite place to find legitimate work at home job, flexjobs.com.  You can also create a gig on Fiverr.com, where you will have clients ordering your expert services.

5.Online Courses

There are various online students who want to learn about various subjects. An excellent example would the immense impact that the Ruth Soukups Elite Blog Academy is making in peoples lives today.  There is a waiting list for this course–I should mention.

By creating your unique online course and learning regime, you can easily earn a living out of providing people with reliable online education services.

For example, if you are an expert in social media managment, take a look at Andrea Vahl, Social Media Manager School.  They also have a free trial. an exclusive facebook group.  You can learn everything you need to learn to be a Social Media Manager…and based on the Facebook group, this is very profitable.

You can also create your own course online at Udemy.com

6.Selling on Etsy

Simply put, Etsy is a specific e-commerce platform such as eBay and Amazon, that sells handmade products.

The products and items sold on this platform also include handmade décor, clothes, and digital downloads. Many women are already making a killing through this platform, and you should consider it as well.

7.Affiliate marketing/niche sites

Niche sites are simply special sites that are monetized by using special links to products offered by platforms such as Amazon and eBay.

Developing a good site and with high-quality content increases the likelihood of making reasonable profits and it’s a good venture for women as well.

My one advise here is to pick a niche that you are passionate about and have vast knowledge.

8.Website management

It’s important to note that web management is a diverse topic that covers various subjects.

When it comes to website management, you can try everything including selling adds, scheduling content and edits among many others. A great example of a woman making it web management is Alexis Grant.

If you need training, you can try Andrea Vahl’s Social Manager School. You can learn anything that you need to learn to start your own Social Media Management business, which includes templates, and an exclusive facebook group where you will meet like minded social media management hopefuls and professionals.

One book I have on my book shelf is Social Media Management All-in-one For Dummies; this is 9 in 1 books. I got mine from Amazon Prime, and I received it in two days.

9.MLM independent sales rep

MLM might seem like a difficult career path for most women, but it is a good venture provided that you have high-quality products to sell to your clients.

Several companies are independent sales reps including Beach Body, Avon, Mary Kay, Total Life Charges, and many others. Keli Gimenez is an excellent example in this category.

10.Pet Sitting

If you love animals, this is something you can make quite a bit of money from. You can advertise you services online.

A good recommendation would to follow up with Crystal, who is making a killing with pet sitting services.

If you are looking for a get rich quick type of deal, I can assure you that you won’t get much success with your online business. As I have mentioned on more than one occassions, finding success online requires hardwork and dedication.

If you have that, you will be successful.
