The recent Aphrodite Award, part of NatWest Everywoman Awards for Business Women is still going strong after 15 years and shows that Moms really can turn the tables on their lives and start their own business often from something small. Although the awards focus on Women, Men are equally as successful and are doing a very good job of starting their own work from home businesses often on a tight budget with many of their businesses turning into incredibly successful companies. We can often become intimidated when we see Multimillion pound businesses emerging and often wonder how they got there but these Awards show that they all started at the bottom and simply worked their way up.
Some of the Businesses included were A Pet Food business, A hairdresser, A Satchel/bags Company. All of these things are quite ordinary things but their founders all have one thing in common, they all wanted and needed to run their own business for different reasons, for many finding a gap in the market is all it takes to propel your small work from home idea into a very successful business. One of the Businesses talked about was Nutriment. A Pet Food Business with an annual turn over of 4 million. It was not however always like that, four years prior Suzanne Brock was a single Mom, she had just lost her job and was on benefits. One of the main incentives was fear of failing and that is what propelled her forward. The bank would not provide a bank loan and so the house was remortgaged and money was borrowed from Family. Nutriment was mainly sold online before being sold through the delivery service Ocado. The Business is now going from strength to strength and one thing that all the women featured have in common is the absolute resolute determination to succeed no matter what.
Making a list of some of the businesses you are interested in is a good idea, work to your strengths and choose something you know you will enjoy and have a passion for. There is every reason why your work from home idea can also be equally as successful.
