You can make money with minimal  investment if you love hair styling or anything to do with fashion and beauty. Travel from house to house or start a small business from home. There’s no need to even buy space for a small beauty and hair styling business.

  • Take tuitions

Love teaching? Then think about which subjects you’re good at and start taking tuitions from home. All you need to do is decide how many hours you can devote to teaching per week and how many children you want to teach.

Don’t overcharge and don’t undervalue yourself. Teaching is one of the easiest ways to earn your financial freedom while increasing your own knowledge.

  • Start a hobby class

From painting and pottery to music and embroidery there are a plethora of hobby classes to choose from. Depending on your passion and expertise you can start a hobby class of your liking.

For example, basic guitar training lasts for six months to a year depending on the frequency of training. If you conduct the class once a week and charge Rs. 500 per session, in six months you can earn Rs. 12,000 per student. The more the students you have the better.

You can even sell your writing to top publications and gradually become a trusted go-to freelancer for the organization.

There’s no dearth of business ideas for women who want to become financially independent or who want to explore their creative and entrepreneurial side. All you need to do is discover what you’re good at and then go out there and make some money.
