Best business to start from home for women

Social media management

Social media management is the type of business that gives you flexibility and allows you to choose how you want to run it from a few different options – you can work with individual brands or creators to help them manage their social media accounts. 

Sell on Etsy

Etsy is the best place for small businesses. You can open an online store and sell various things without the fuss of managing an online store. Anything from vintage clothing to handcrafted bowls and digital downloads can be sold on Etsy, so you have many options to choose from.

Freelance writer

As a freelance writer, you’ll work with a range of different clients in writing blog content, product descriptions, website copy, ebooks, white papers, magazine articles, SEO writing, and much more. 

Freelance editor

If you have a good grasp of the English language and have attention to detail, you can start a freelance editing business. Freelance editors work with bloggers, corporate clients, and authors to make sure that written content is grammatically correct or help develop structure and plot and ensure its quality.

A virtual assistant

If you’re looking for a business idea where you would have an opportunity of working from home, then starting out a virtual assistant business might be for you. Virtual assistants do a variety of tasks like invoices, emails, agenda management, social media management, and more.


Proofreaders work with publishing houses, independent authors, and corporate clients to help them make sure their written content is free from grammatical, spelling, punctuation, and formatting errors.  If you have attention to detail, then proofreading might be a good business idea.


Blogging is a perfect home-based business idea for stay-at-home moms or anyone looking for freedom at work.  You can blog about anything you want, there is a niche for most topics, and you can always monetize your blog, even with a smaller audience.
