Which ones are the most original physical businesses to have for a young woman, and why is that? Originally appeared on Quora: the place to gain and share knowledge, empowering people to learn from others and better understand the world.

Marketing and Sales Business Ideas for Women

A number of businesses fall under this category and you might already have experience with some of them. If you do have experience with one, that can work to your advantage and make you a more in-demand freelancer in that field.

A lot of the work listed below can be done on a freelance basis giving you more flexibility in your working life. They’re also personalizable so you can diversify your clients if you want to, or work as much or as little as you really want to.

Online shops like Etsy allow you to easily turn your crafting hobby into a stream of extra income. Other hobbies like baking can also be turned into your own business, maybe it starts with making a cake for an anniversary or birthday party but that business could quickly grow. Some other creative services and goods that can turn into a business are listed below.
