I had been a silent reader of this site for may of its forums like parenting, work from home, married life and others. Simply love this anad found this site to be much more reliable than other similar ones. Now, for me... I am a married woman blessed with a supportive husband....a kind of not much interfring in laws...and a lovely daughter in UKG. My husband is a professional and since DD is born, I have been helping him in his work FROM HOME. But have always wanted to do something of my own. Ours is a middle class family with a decent lifestyle and DD attending one of the finest schools. DH is the only earning member and I am just a help to him. I wish to begin some small business from home..not the content writing thing..thats mostly what I have been finding all over the net:-( AT this moment, we cannot afford to invest to buy a shop..SHOP!! I wish to begin with stuff like jwellery, accessories, stuff for females of all ages...cos thats one industry that I feel is never gonna fall too much and with increasing responsibilities, inflation and competition in DH's service industry...and being my room of interest..thats what I wish to begin. SO I am here for suggestions. I planned to slowly start collecting stuff..like keep aside some amount monthly just for this...say 2K for the start and whenever..wherever I find good stuff reasonable...I but it and store...bcos we won't be able to invest in one go. I do not see anywhere in near future that we be able to purchase a shop...and going on rent is not advisable until n unless I have some fixed income. Ladies plz pour in your suggestions - 1.what all stuff can be kept in the collection? I have already started getting some, like some artificial jwellery pieces...handbags..kids hair accessories... NOT costly stuff for the start. 2.The main concern - How do I spread a word and bring some footfall orders..I shall be having all stuff at home..cannot display openly anywhere..spreading a word is all I can do. 3.I have never been a KITTY PARTY kind of lady :-( and here I go at loss...I do not have a circle as such till yet. I see forward to begin slow and hope to get somewhere from home itself in may be next 2 years. Is that possible? Plz advise. Thanks.
