Bangalore: Money, arguably, is the root of all happiness and at the same time, it is an integral part of everyone’s life. There are many ways to earn money and people nowadays are trying each and every possible way to start with something new. But, the key reason that is holding them back would be the fear of heavy investment and lack of fruitful ideas.



However, it has been witnessed that women have made significant mark in the business world in the last few decades. Most of the studies show that the number of women taking active participation into business has been showing impressive growth.



Read on to know top 10 small scale business ideas for women to work from home, as listed by Strategicbusinessteam.com.



1. Online Work Opportunities



Women are considered to be creative; therefore those who are good with their writing skills can successfully turn their skill into a means of earning, by becoming a freelance writer. A freelance writer is someone who writes without being on direct payroll of any particular company but write on contract basis.



First you need to decide in which field you are comfortable to write. There are many options like technical, business, e-commerce, blogs etc. Once you decide what you will be writing about, you can initially try out friends and family for projects and later move on to professional contacts.



Freelance writing is a great opportunity for women who are not able to go out due to family roles and responsibilities.

Hi, I am srihari from Tamil Nadu. I would like to suggest the best option for work at home for women is MEDICAL TRANSCRIPTION. You can earn a minimum of Rs.10000/= for which one would need to undergo a basic training from any one of the medical transcription institution. After getting adequate experience in this industry, they can start at home with owning a PC with internet connection.

Dear subhrasinha'

I m a woman of 34 age. I m also thinking to do a business with small investment from home.
Same problem i m facing like u.
Bt i think we should do something which is comfortable at financial , personal,educational level of us.
So i think rather than asking to some one we should judge our self as no one can judge us better than our self.& then decide.

I am a 34 year old working women from New Delhi. When it comes to family we even sacrifice our careers. I am also looking for the same, so that I can look after my 4 year son and his studies. All of us need to think a lot about our talent and skills what we can do and be wise to choose.
If u are stable at one place,you have more options.you can open a Day Care, handicraft business, small restaurant or tiffin centre, small boutique, stationary/housekeeping supplies to offices etc. You can chose any of these options depending on your skills, space and time. I am yet to choose one.
