It is so nice to see many boutiques for babies, toddlers, and kids that were started by enterprising new moms. It seems that when they became mothers, they found an opportunity to start a new business and many have been successful at it.
If you want to start a baby boutique while taking care of your kids at home, you can do so by putting up an online shop. The time is more flexible and your capital can go to the stocks and not the infrastructure and rent.
This way, you can be able to recoup your capital at the soonest time. You can think of expanding into a real store eventually, though.
