Women ‘more likely to find ways to supplement income’

Women are 30% more likely than men to seek out ways to supplement their strained incomes than men, according to a survey of 1,000 people for DIY website builder WebEden.co.uk.

Women are 30% more likely than men to seek out ways to supplement their strained incomes than men, according to a survey of 1,000 people for DIY website builder WebEden.co.uk.
The survey showed that almost half of those surveyed, all of whom were in jobs, say their finances are being stretched more than ever before, but far more woman than men are choosing to do something about it.
Almost one in four said that, without these extra activities, they would struggle to survive.
Whilst the traditional car boot provides an income for around one in three, over two thirds have turned to selling on eBay and almost one in five are making their own products and selling them on.
The survey also found that of those woman who weren’t currently supplementing their income, one in four said they were thinking about setting up a business on the side. When asked what was stopping them, lack of time and start-up capital were the main barriers, with one in five blaming their bank managers directly for an inability to flex their entrepreneurial muscles.
Ray Francis, spokesperson for WebEden says: "In this digital age, anyone with bit of entrepreneurial spirit can get started relatively quickly and easily. For example, making and selling your own products has never been simpler with online shops being able to be set up in an evening and orders taken, literally, within hours."
