If you’re a woman entrepreneur that worked hard to get where you are and realize how much trouble it is for a woman to find success, then you may be interested in being in the business of women. There are so many ways out there women can help women, and it just makes sense that this particular sex sticks together. Why?
Well, women are still getting paid less than men working in the same fields as them. Women still have to continually worry about sexual harassment in an out of the workplace. And that’s just the start.
Aside from the pay gap, it can be nice to do something for your fellow woman. So, if you’ve been considering a business that caters, at least mostly, to women, here are some ideas that might be right up your alley.
Start A Spa
You could start a spa. You would be helping women, and sometimes men, relax and feel better about themselves. A spa can offer many things, but at its core, it is a spiritual place that helps people find their inner calm and beauty.
You could offer pedicures and manicures, do massages, have yoga classes available, put in a sauna, and even have a hot tub. You can offer salt scrubs, seaweed wraps, and facials. There is a lot to do in a business like this and you can know that you are helping people better their lives, their bodies, and their minds.
Become A Life Coach
Life coaching is a very rewarding career, and there are different subsets you can go into with coaching. You can help people, or women specifically, learn to love themselves and accept who they are or you can help them learn to accept change and better their lives. You can help women find their dream jobs and let go of the stigma when it comes to women in the workplace. Whatever you do as a life coach, you will be helping someone learn to live their lives better.
Be A Midwife
By becoming a midwife or a doula you can help women do something amazing, bring a new life into this world. It helps to have some background in nursing in order to get into this field but isn’t always a requirement (you’ll want to look into the local laws where you life to find out what kind of training or licensing you may need).
Help Homeless Women And Children
Really want to help women? Consider opening a homeless shelter for homeless or battered women, and their children if they have any. Have therapy services on staff, feed them, give them shelter, and do something to get them back on their feet and turn them back into the strong and powerful women that are still hiding inside.
