We just moved to a brand new home which I am in the middle of decorating. My husband makes a nice salary but said it would be a lot easier if I went back to work. I dread going back into the rat race of an office job and a commute every day. I was thinking about starting some sort of a home business, but I'm not sure what I could do.
I used to be an executive secretary years ago and somewhat enjoyed that. I do enjoy typing, I have decent skills with Microsoft Word, Excel, etc. and basically taught myself everything I know. I thought of maybe a Word Processing business. That might work but I wouldn't know where to begin. I was recently talking to my new neighbor next door who has 2 small children and also wants to start a home business. We both have administrative skills and thought we could even do something together. Is that a good idea?
I am also an exercise nut -- I love home exercise workouts and have an extensive collection of over 200 workouts. My discovery of them 2 years ago has helped me at 49 years of age lose a lot of weight and become the most fit I have ever been in my life! I was once a Weight Watchers meeting leader (that doesn't really pay much) but not crazy about getting up in front of groups of people anymore. I enjoy proper eating and explore many of the healthier options for eating to maintain my weight loss. I don't really know what I could do with that but....
I also like crafts, going to stores like Michaels and buying kits to make things. I'm a bit creative but not to a great extent.
Can anyone give me any ideas? I really need to start something and I have no idea of where to begin. Thanks in advance for your help.
