So you may be in for a real challenge and become a business owner while still having time to spend with your family. Fortunately, there are great business ideas for moms (and dads too). Come back regularly because I update this page constantly.
Business Ideas for Moms
eBay seller. If you make handmade products or crafts from home, you have a keen eye for online deals and sales, or if you were a direct sales representative and still have inventory, you can start your new e-commerce business at eBay.
Etsy Store Owner. If you want to sell the crafts you make, and everyone loves, an Etsy store could be a good option. Etsy includes digital products and printables.
Cakes and Bakes. You have to get really good at bread baking before you open your store online. Of course, it is impossible to know all kinds of varieties and trends to fit all your customers. Whichever the case, you need to find your niche and learn the ins and outs of that market. Check out the Bread-Baking business plan.
