Best Business For Mums

Discover the Ideal business for mums that lets you work from home

Hi, I’m Josie Tong. I’m a long-time business and lifestyle mentor for busy mums. I know how to help you find the perfect business that you’ll love and that you can start and run from home.

In the past year, I’ve mentored over 60 people who have earned at least an additional $1k per month after just 3 months of working with me. 10 of those mums are already earning over $10k per month!

I’ve already done the work of raising kids while working as a nurse-director and mumpreneur. Now I’m helping mums navigate the same path so they can earn freedom and hit their goals.

"Busy mums often love being a mum but have one foot firmly anchored in chaos. Coping with burnout and feeling like you're treading water day after day, doesn’t have to be the norm."

You can build a fulfilling life by finding the right small business idea and the right mentor to help you get your new life off the ground.

Business ideas for mums

There are endless lists of business ideas for mums. But how do you find the perfect business for you?

It doesn’t take guesswork. It takes experience. There several types of businesses that I’ve seen mums try:

  • You could establish a bricks and mortar style business. This will let you serve customers directly and provide them with goods and services they need.
  • You could become a freelancer by leveraging professional services and skills you have already obtained.
  • You might consider opening a franchise. Whether it’s a gym, restaurant, car wash, or laundromat, franchise management can be rewarding.

Do these businesses work?

Traditional businesses options have their pros, but they usually require a great deal of capital to get off the ground. You might also need to spend significant time to set them up since there is no existing business system. Several of these options will require you to spend time outside your home, away from the family; they might also need a high level of technical expertise for you to succeed, meaning that you'll need to complete additional study or training before you can even start.

Is there a better Home Business for mums?

Of all the businesses I’ve seen mums start when they’re looking to make more money from home or quit their job, network marketing has helped clients produce better results than any other. Network marketing is a powerful opportunity that is easy to enter, easy to build, and exciting to conquer. I built a six-figure business using network marketing, so I know how it works and how to make it work for you. Plus, out of all the businesses I’ve helped mums build over the years, network marketing has been the easiest for them to get into while producing the fastest results.

Why is it important to choose the right business?

Today, working mums with established careers and professional lives are transitioning from traditional jobs to building their own businesses that allow them to craft a high-quality, enviable life for themselves and their families. What you have to look forward to if you choose this path?

  • Work from home
  • Choose your working hours
  • Lead and empower other busy mums
  • Inspire your children to create their own destiny
  • Finally live a life you built for yourself
  • Enjoy a secure financial future
  • Be your own boss

How can you make all this happen?

The truth is, a successful home business doesn’t happen overnight, and building your ideal life requires a great mentor.

The right mentor will know how to make you and your business thrive. They’ll know what works, what doesn’t, and how to navigate common pitfalls.

Could Network Marketing be the right business for you?

I've built multiple 6-figure network marketing businesses and I've also helped other mums set up their own network marketing businesses, helping them earn an extra $10,000+ a month or more.

Here's why I think Network marketing is the best business for mums to start:

  • You can work from home
  • You get a great mentor to help you
  • No limit to your earnings
  • Low start-up costs
  • Established business system
  • More freedom

Why is network marketing a great business for stay at home mums?

Network marketing is all about sharing. By talking about products you already love with people who are already looking for the solutions your products offer, you’re having conversations that matter, and making money.

Network marketing focuses on meeting new people and sharing solutions or products you’ve found that they will love. If they aren’t a good fit, you don’t need to be a product pusher.

Network marketing is just like telling someone about a great new restaurant you’ve found, a favourite new activity your child loves, or a new favourite song. The difference is, when they try it for themselves and realise the benefits, you make some money. If they find they love it as much as you do and want to help you sell, you make even more money.

Start your home business with amazing products and support

My Life Vantage Business has helped me generate hundreds of thousands of dollars of income for myself and other mums.

As a nurse, I need to know that the products I’m sharing, especially in the health and wellness space, are really offering value. Life Vantage has evidence that makes sense to me and that I can get behind. Plus, they understand that as a health and wellness coach, you’re not just interested in helping yourself and others optimise their overall wellbeing, although that’s vital. You’re intentionally elevating your position and building your very own legacy, and that really matters.

You need a mentor. You need an experienced mentor.
