Being a stay-at-home parent can be a great thing, but unfortunately, a lot of those parents have trouble finding a job when they are ready simply because they have been out of the job market for a certain amount of time. If you are a stay-at-home parent and want to get back to work, then in this article we have put together a few great business ideas that you can use in order to start a business on your own and rest assured that these are ideas that won’t require a lot of money.


As long as people live in houses, there will always be a need for someone to clean that house. More and more people don’t want to spend time cleaning after they come home from work, which makes house-cleaning a great business to start. You can send out ads and you can be sure that people will start calling. If you want to have a good and lasting relationship with your clients, then you should make sure to find out exactly what your clients expect from you and try your best to meet those expectations.

Personal chef

If you are particularly good at cooking, then this is the perfect thing to use and start a business with. If cooking is something that you enjoy, then getting paid for it will definitely make a great business opportunity. If you have an additional knowledge of nutrition, then this is also a great bonus so that may be something you want to work on before you sign up for the job. You will need to be prepared to work in different kitchens because every client’s kitchen will be different and you need to be prepared for working with worse utensils then you are used to and just worse equipment in general.

Dog walking

If you are a pet lover, then there really is no better business for you to go into the pet walking. This means that you will get to spend your day walking around and playing with a bunch of different dogs, seeing as how those are the most likely type of pet people will want you to take for a walk and getting paid to do so. If you live in an area that has a retirement community, then you are the perfect candidate for this business because those are most likely the people that will lack the energy to walk their pets and will be happy to pay someone else to do it. Another great thing about this is that it won’t take up a lot of time from your day.

If you can’t find a job, then making one for yourself is the next best thing and hopefully these few suggestions have helped give you an idea of all of the options out there are that are available to you. Before you start a business make sure that you are choosing something that you are really passionate about, because this may be the one time that you can actually do something that you love and enjoy doing.
