Many women have found themselves asking the question; “What Business Can My Husband Do?” as a result of the financial challenges plaguing many homes – especially when there is only one income stream and as such are looking for ideas to share with their spouse.
Also, it can be a troubling thing for a woman to be the only one providing for the family (and this can have really devastating effects on the man too) so it is only natural for a woman to be on the lookout for business ideas for her husband.
It is important to point out that many men have issues with their ego and how they are perceived – men like to be respected. As a smart woman who wants to positively influence her husband, the first thing you need to do is to make him realize that you acknowledge his authority as the head of the home and appreciate him as a person in spite of the financial challenges.
This will make your husband open to you and pay attention to what you have to say when you start sharing ideas that you have researched with him – this should work most of the time!
Now that you have his ears, what are the 3 business ideas your husband can do?
Business Ideas for Husbands
1. Transport Business:
The truth is many people have no idea of what’s possible from this business alone so they despise it.
People will always have a need to move. When they are broke, they move towards where the money is likely to come from. When they have a lot of money, they move towards where they can spent the money. When they are hungry, they are either going to move towards the market to buy food stuffs or move towards an eatery.
People will always move and so transportation business will never go out of fashion.
This can either be as interstate transport service or intra-city transport service. It doesn’t matter, if you can get people from where they are to where they want to be, you will get paid.
2. Supply Business:
This is another very interesting business that many men have found success in so you might want to consider it if you are looking out for business ideas for your husband.
How does this work?
This involves buying goods from a location where you can get them cheaper and sell them at a higher amount. You make money by keeping the difference between your cost and your selling price.
Here’s what you need to do if you want to have success in this business…
Take out time to search out places where you can get goods at a cheaper price and negotiate for the goods.
Now that you have your sourcing out of the way, get to work and start looking out for places where the goods will sell quickly with a fair profit margin. You might be lucky to find a decent profit margin selling within the same state but usually you will make the most profit from transporting the goods to areas where the goods are not produced at all.
For example, Onion is produced in Northern Nigeria but the best market to sell it is somewhere in the western parts of the country where you can make a huge profit on it because of the high demand for it in those regions.
I’m sure if you look around, you can find several product ideas for your husband to buy and resell with a significant profit on them.
3. Real Estate Agency
Another very interesting business idea you can suggest to your husband is real estate agency business.
This is especially a good business for you to consider if you live close to a major city. Many people who move into town have a hard time securing an accommodation of their choice for their budget and this is where your husband’s services come in handy.
How to get started as a real estate agent?
Decide on which areas you want to be an agent in and invest the time in looking out for vacant properties along those lines. Once you have done this, have as many meetings as possible with the home owners and negotiate to be the agent in charge of their houses.
If you get a chance to become the sole agent of the house, this is good for you because whether you bring someone to the house or not you get paid but if you don’t no worries. Move on to the next one.
How do you make money as a real estate agent?
There a several ways you can make money as a real estate agent;
a. You can charge an inspection fee. This is a fee clients will pay you before going to see your apartments to see if you have what fits them.
b. You get to earn 10% a commission on every property you lease or sell. And this can quickly become a significant amount.
