Suitable Business for a lady.




Hi Guys,

Very soon me and my family will be moving to Canada for good. We will mostly be put up in Brampton. Since I am new and don't know much about the place would ask for suggestion as in what business for a lady would be suitable. I am a mother of 2 kids and not comfortable to take up a job keeping my kids in day care etc. So want to start something of my own , where in no much capital is required and it should fetch me some decent profit.

Would like to know on this. Please Help!!!!!!

To be very frank, I wouldn't take the risk of kids. I am a double MBA graduate in finance and International Marketing. Presently working as a Manager Operations In Dubai for a private firm. I am putting my qualification as to know if anything worth I could do.

Suggestions please!!!!!!!!!

MBA?
Your double MBA means nothing in Canada.
A lot of people from Dubai think that since they got top money in Dubai they will get twice that in Canada.,
The situation is not like that. There is a lot of unemployment in Cananda and even the local whites are not able to get jobs.
Only IT opening are there.
Finance/ accounting is another place where there are openings. But we will have to compare your skills to find if you will fit.

A dream of every aspiring businessman/woman!!!
Anyhow being so much qualiied and with experience I am sure you will find something that meets all your needs and when it does you will not hesitate to share it with us.
I know of very few folks who are kind of successful in couple of following:
1) RESP
2) Real Esate agent
3) Travel agent
4) Kijiji/eBay


a) Amway
b) canadiandesi.com ;)
c) facebook/twitter.com (come up with idea and rip the rewards..investment? your brain and little bit of luck)


Just a question though..right now you are working for private firm, how are you managing the job with kids? If you are to stay in Dubai or anywhere in the world, which business you can think of that can meet your criteria?
Good luck Priti.

Thanks for your response. I know tht ppl are unemployed. And whether it is white or black , we see it as a country. So according to you white ppl should be treated first and then come the rest of the world. Good to know. Anyways, I manage my job here in dubai as I have a maid and my mom to take care of my kids and they are no more toddlers.

So I think this was not the rite place for me to ask for suggestion, probably I shd be on the white peoples forum.
Thanks Muraliji.

In Canada - Canadians must come first. Nothing wrong with it. The statement was not derogatory to you/Indians in any way.

When one puts up a question on a public forum - there will be responses from all kinds of people. Mostly these responses will come from their own experiences.

Give yourself time to understand this place, the people, the culture, the language. You will find a mix of people here - some people have good experiences and some people are crushed. You will hear of doctors driving cabs and Phd's working in Pizza Pizza.

People coming to Canada are mostly immigrants - who first come here and then find jobs. When they are unable to find jobs meeting their own qualifications - it leads to frustrations.

I know of 2 of my friends - both of them extremely qualified - unable to find jobs - cutting down on experience / qualification so that they can be suitable even for a job at Tim Horton's. Sadly, they have been unsuccessful.

That is not to say that everyone isn't. For every failure - we can find success.

Business here can be tricky. You will need to understand liabilities and insurance. Everyone would like such an ideal business - low capital - decent profit. Stay at home - look after the kids. Suggestions will usually range from babysitting to tiffin service to Internet marketing, real estate, Amway, Avon etc.

All the best! Hope you find success.

Redflag
Priti:
Try Redflagdeals(dot)com website.
It is mostly a whites site and see how they discriminate against Desi's.
People who come from the Gulf, more or less come with a big head, thinking that if they were sucessful in the Gulf they have be twice as sucessful in Canada. The govt. also spreads falsehood among immigrants enticing them to come to canada with statements such as :
a. 68 % of people in Canada in 2020 will be immigrants .
b. 2 million baby boomers will retire by 2020 (It was 2005 in 2001).
c. Canada will face a severe shortage of health care workers exp. docs and nurses by 2012.
d. Doctors are cutting off their hours by 20% etc...

Canada wants your taxes to pay salaries of the people and the pensions and healthcare.
All the job left for immigrants (mostly) will be hard labour jobs , commission jobs m jobs that no man (white or black or Desi) should do in Canada.
I am welcoming you to Canada, where you will loose your hope and peace as you have experienced relatively good life in Dubai.
I would advise you not to come to Canada (by this I am actually enticing you to come to Canada and suffer).
The choice is yours. No one else can make a choice for you but we can warn you.
All the best,.
Peace

Wouldn't you eventually become one of those "people" who will use the same pension and healthcare? So arent you giving the taxes to your own good?
