The curious topic was Home Based Business Start Up Opportunities For Women. Talk about putting a twist on things, I was surprised too.
Martha, an Assistant Professor teaches entrepreneurship at a local University.
She hosts a symposium one week after class starts for her first year students. Its purpose is to expand their minds and get them thinking about home business start-ups.
The theme focuses on starting a business from home. While open to all of her freshmen students, attendance by women is around 85% or so of the group.
I was an invited guest who had two assigned tasks.
The symposium was three hours long with a 15-minute break. Twenty-two Students were in attendance all seated in a circle starting to the left and right of me.
We each took turns naming affordable home-based business opportunities. Affordable was defined as investing $1,000 or less to a maximum of $5,000 to begin generating sales and cash flow for the owner.
The first question I asked was, What are the most “off-the-wall” home business ideas for women that you can think of?
This was a tough question. We spent about 90-minutes suggesting a bunch of weirdness and then discussing the best of the weird (but highly profitable) ideas. Each idea listed below is a link to a “how-to-do” resource.
The second half of the symposium we talked about home based business start up opportunities using the Internet. It was exceedingly interesting mainly because the students had little idea how to make money online.
As expected, they didn’t know how to build an effective website, which I’m still learning how to do also. We solved that problem.
This was a lively 90-minutes and very exhilarating time for everyone, including me.
We learned that there are literally thousands upon thousands of businesses that can be started online from home by both women and men, which can lead to a steady income, maybe even enough to leave your day job and take multiple vacations a year!
A very real possibility when you build your online business correctly.
Thank you for visiting Home Based Business Start Up Opportunities for Women.
