Are you looking for a fun business idea that you can do with your daughter? Or maybe you are a homeschool mom who is looking for some real-life experience for your daughter so she can learn about entrepreneurship and what it's like to run your own small business.
Why Start your Own Business with your Daughter?
First of all, you may be wondering what the benefits are to starting your own business together with your daughter.
1. Your daughter will learn business & financial skills.
You will be surprised at how much your daughter will learn through running her own business. There are so many business skills, from budgeting to marketing to goal-setting to be gained. She can also learn how to do taxes!
2. Your daughter will learn social and real-life skills
There is so much that can be learned through running your own business. Your daughter will learn people-skills, communication skills, customer service skills, time management, persistence and more!
"Elizabeth has learned entrepreneurship skills, communication skills, stickstick–to–itiveness, money handling, creative thinking, effective displays.... she created her own products to sell alongside our Lilla Rose collection and now has her own etsy shop and planning business ideas for the future. (She's 16 now, and started doing events with me about 10 years ago)"

3. A home business can give you quality time together with your daughter
With today's fragmented families all going their different directions, a family business is a great way to spend time together and be united through working for a common goal. It can also create lots of opportunities for those heart-to-heart talks with your daughters that are so crucial during those 'tween and teen years.
"Leah and I enjoy the long talks on the way to events! We have uninterrupted time to talk about whatever is on her mind. She has also learned about merchandising, inventory control, customer service, profit loss, taxes ect."
4. You and your daughter can earn extra income
It is so rewarding to see your hard work pay off. What a great thing for your daughter to see her efforts translate to income!
5. Develops character and perseverance
Nothing develops character and perseverance more than running your own business!
6. Running a home business is fun!
And finally, running a home business with your daughter is just plain fun!
"My takeaway is Morgan and I spent so much time together because of Lilla Rose in those formative teen years when teens are often avoiding their parents."
Best Business for Moms and Daughters
Now that you've learned just SOME of the MANY benefits of starting a small business with your daughter, let me tell you what, in my opinion, is the absolute BEST home business to do together!
Lilla Rose Hair Accessories
Lilla Rose is the best business idea for moms and daughters, as it is super-fun and profitable to do together as a mother-daughter team!
Why Lilla Rose?
Lilla Rose is a direct sales company that offers many benefits that make it ideal for mothers and their 'tween and teen daughters.
1. Girls love looking pretty and doing hair!
"I have loved using Lilla Rose as a tool to teach work ethic in all situations and business skills. We have used it as part of our homeschool curriculum to teach business strategies, business planning, networking, financial responsibility, customer care, personal interaction, data entry, inventory management, etc. My oldest 3 daughters have come with me to festivals and learned how to care about the people as well as the sale! Such a great opportunity for the children to work with me and see me in a different light other than “homeschool teacher” and Mom."
2. It is fun to sell!
It is fun and rewarding to see ladies and girls who think that "nothing will work in my hair" come away with beautiful hair and huge smiles on their faces!
3. Unique products
The Flexi clip is Lilla Rose's flagship product, and there is no other product out there like it! You can't buy it at Target or Amazon. It works in ALL types of hair, from baby-fine to super thick!
You can learn more about the Flexi clip and other Lilla Rose products HERE and shop for them HERE.
4. Quality guarantee
Lilla Rose hair accessories are high quality and last for years. They also come with a one-year guarantee against defects or breakage so you can sell with confidence.
"I love the time together and my kids have used it to do their own networking. My son LOVED helping me at my FBI shows. And made contacts he used for future career advice. They also learned people skills and taking to adults was never a challenge for them."
5. The products are provided for you. No need to make your own product to sell.
So many ladies who join Lilla Rose are former craft show and farmer's market vendors that made their own products, such as goat's milk soap or crocheted items. Once they realized that not only did the hair accessories sell better, but that they didn't have to spend so much time actually making the products, they were sold!
6. A "Business in a Box" for less than $100
Where else can you get started in your own business for less than $100? The Lilla Rose starter kit includes everything you need to be successful, including over $300 worth of product and marketing supplies.
You can see what all comes in your kit HERE.
"My daughter has been working with me at shows since I joined LR 5 years ago. She started out just helping to greet people and hand out information, but quickly moved on to helping people shop, find the right size, and now fully completing sales without assistance. We enjoy doing shows together as it gives us good girl time as well as learning business and life lessons. That one-on-one girl time may be coming to an end as one of my sons has decided he would like to start going with us and helping"
7. You get a free website. Orders placed through it are shipped for you!
You will get a free replicated website like mine HERE.
Not only does Lilla Rose fulfill all orders through your website, but they also handle any exchanges or returns on orders placed through your website as well.
8. There are a variety of ways to sell
You can sell in-person at craft shows, farmer's markets, vendor events, salons, coffee shops and more! Once ladies try a Lilla Rose Flexi clip in their, they are sold for life!

You can also sell online, through social media, texts, email marketing, blogging, collaborating with influencers and more! The ways are endless!
9. Flexible and no-pressure
Believe me I know...moms are busy and the last thing you need is more pressure! Lilla Rose gives you the freedom to run your business the way you want, when you want, with never any pressure to "sell" or meet high monthly quotas.
10. Business and marketing training is provided
Once you join Lilla Rose, you will have access to all the latest in-person and online marketing training so that you can have success in your new venture!
"My daughter learned how to come out of her shell, talk to people more freely with confidence, how to organize, count and track stock. She learned how to count cash, balance books, and find the profit margin. She also learned how to invest, save, and trust the capitalism model of government so everyone can work and get paid but business owners keep the machine running. She learned customer care and follow up. The most important thing she learned was how to serve others first and foremost in your business. I think it was her favorite high school class."
Lilla Rose is the Best Business for Homeschool Moms and Daughters as Well
Real-life experience is much better than classroom or textbook learning.
There really is no comparison to hands-on "doing" vs. "theory." With traditional classes, you learn enough to pass the test, then proceed to forget everything you learned. Also, many times the curriculum is not up-to date, especially with the latest online marketing and social media tactics that change so fast, and that businesses today rely on.
What is better...an online homeschool course on entrepreneurship that teaches theory, or actually the experience of owning and running your own business?
Lilla Rose offers the perfect educational opportunity for learning entrepreneurship! Learn by DOING!
Many online courses for homeschoolers cost up to $1000 or more per course, but you can get started with Lilla Rose for less than $100.
Your daughter will get a much better education at a fraction of the cost (and will get PAID for it!!!)
