Hello World! Welcome Friends! Today, please help me welcome Emily Kil to the blog.
Having more than one egg in the basket is the best way to get ahead in this constantly changing economy. While you may love your current career, there is always room to make your bank account grow with a side job. Plus, it never hurts to round out your corporate experience with something interesting that makes you stand out in future interviews. Becoming an entrepreneur is as easy as finding something you enjoy and creating a business. To get you started, here are a few of the best part-time business ideas that you can do while still keeping your current position.
Restore and Sell Antique Furniture
People leave old furniture on the curb all the time, and many of these pieces are antiques that do not deserve to be trashed at the dump. Start reclaiming these pieces, and learn how to refinish them on the weekend. In most cases, simply sanding and staining the pieces is all it takes to make them look new again. Then, set up shop in your yard, or hit a few flea markets to sell your unique pieces.
Become a Personal Assistant
Advertising your services to be a task rabbit gives you something new to look forward to with every job. While one person may need you to do their holiday shopping, another may ask you to water their plants while they are away on a business trip. Tackling other people’s chores is never boring, and you will find that many people keep calling you back. Referrals are also a given when you do a great job, and you’ll find your business growing within just a few weeks.
Do Small Business Accounting
Tons of small business owners go into their venture with a lot of heart but very little awareness of how to manage the financial side of things. For this reason, many other entrepreneurs are eager to hand over their books to someone with accounting experience. Whether your currently work as an accountant or would love to crunch some numbers during your spare time, this is a lucrative part-time job for anyone who loves math.
Start a Cleaning Service
This is one business that never has a slow season since people always need help with housekeeping. If you prefer not to do people’s dirty laundry, then consider approaching a few local businesses to see if they need someone to come in after-hours to empty wastebaskets and vacuum. For those who really like to keep things interesting, you can take a cue from “Sunshine Cleaning,” and recruit your sister or best friend to be team up for a biohazard cleaning company. Just think about all of that bonding that you’ll enjoy as you help people put their lives back together after a tragedy.
Set Up Home Organization Systems
Many people own more things than they know how to handle. While these people will readily clean up their kitchen, they often lack the know-how to figure out what to do with an overflowing closet or unkempt garage. If you have a knack for organizing, then you can do this job on the weekends or in the evenings when the majority of people are home to learn how to use the systems that you set up.
Mentor People Online
Life coaches and mentors are still in high demand as people look to others with experience to help them manage life’s challenges. This part-time job is especially great if you work in a career field with a steady flow of newcomers who need your advice to succeed. To become an online mentor, you can set up a website and start marketing your services. Attending networking events and passing out your card is a cost-effective way to begin spreading the word that you are eager to provide your assistance.
Open a Mobile Spray Tan Business
Spray tans are today’s safest way to get a golden glow, and many people are too busy to stop by the local salon. While this business does require some equipment and set up, you will be able to set your own hours to work around your primary job. You can even maximize your income by booking bridal parties and other large groups that allow you to spray multiple people with minimal travel.
Bake Your Way to the Bank
A baking business is possible to do from home provided that you have a decent-sized kitchen. If not, you can recruit a friend with one to join in. While lots of people sell decorated cakes, consider finding your niche to stand out from the competition. For instance, you could start a gluten-free baking company, or sell healthy muffins to local businesses in the mornings. Either way, this is a fun way to turn your love for baking into a profitable company.
Whether you want to add to your kid’s college fund or just want to get a jumpstart on retirement, starting a side job is an ideal way to meet your goals. As you explore potential new businesses, keep in mind that your second job should always be interesting enough to keep you excited about working toward your goals.
