Housewives can earn an income, too. Start with what you know best using the tools you already have at home. Your kitchen utensils, manicure set, arts and crafts tools can be used to start your own business. Let’s start with 5 ideas.
- Sell what you do best. Do you cook the best pasta, pancit, rice cake, paella or any special dish that your family, friends and guests rave about? Chances are you will have customers that would love them, too. Our neighbor Mana Enna cooks excellent vegetables with coconut milk which have become a daily fare in many lunch tables.
- Offer beauty services. If you love doing manis and pedis, you can extend your service to friends right in your home, for a fee, of course. Beauty entrepreneur Dettie Panis, owner of the chain of Dettie Panis Beauty Salon and Spa started hair cutting at their garage. I was one of the early believers.
- Monetize your hobby. Schoolmate Betsy have the patience and analytic mind to make complicated origami figures and friends have been prodding her to accept gift wrapping services.
- Let your idle oversupply of table wares make money for you. If you own at least four (4) dozen plates , silver wares and glass coordinates, make them available for rent. Some caterers would need additional plates or special dinner ware sets.
- Engage in a direct selling business and grow your network by recruiting your friends. Choose a company with easy entrance requirements that offer basic personal and home care products for daily use. Aside from earning from your personal sales, you can also earn rebates from your downline. Ate Ditas started with a registration fee of 150 pesos ( $4 US) and is now receiving at least P 20,000.00 in rebates every month.
