Career Ideas for the Money Savvy Girl

by ·

These days the nature of a career has been changed from traditional 9-5 jobs, suits and professionals. A career, and a profitable one at that, can be enjoyed from home or while travelling with your own expectations and goals in mind. So if you're looking for more than just a job to pay the bills here are a few career ideas for the money-savvy girl.

Be your own boss

It used to be that being your own boss was all about setting up business premises, launching your shop front and building your clientele, but with the internet there are so many more opportunities with much less risk.

The internet has brought us a number of ways to build your own career, from online boutique craft stores to freelancing, meaning there is massive scope to work when and where you feel like it. The benefits include being able to work around family life, to set your own goals and to manage your own time and finances.

Crafty and creative

There's an old saying that if you do what you love, you'll never work another day in your life and this has spawned hundreds of boutique businesses across the internet. From jewellery makers to artists and sewers, those gifted with creativity are using it to make money. If you do it well, you may even follow others who have tried their hand with great success.

Product sales

The internet has also provided a different sort of shop front where you source the product and sell it on a global scale using your own site or marketplaces such as EBay. You can source and sell anything, whether that's products from China, vintage jewellery or recycled fashion.


And then of course there is freelancing, where you take your career skills in areas such as graphic design, writing, journalism, editing or programming and set up your own business and website, or use such sites as Freelancer and Elance to build an online career. Like any business, it takes a while to build your reputation and clientele, but there are solid returns to be had for little to no investment other than your time.

Share trading

Sometimes the share market gets a bad rap, but there are people who make a good living from it and the potential is there for a solid income. Again, the internet means this is no longer a playground just for brokers and suited men on Wall Street; it can now be done on your computer at the touch of a button.

There's different ways to play the market, whether it be investing for the long term in a dividends-driven manner or short selling to make a quick profit. To find out more, get in touch with the experts at Learn to Trade for workshops and courses aimed at those new to the game.

Having a career doesn't have to mean being confined to traditional 9-5 jobs and full-time commitment. With technology broadening the scope to make cash every day, there are a host of new and exciting career options available to any money-savvy girl.
