Selling Homemade Products
If you are great at creating and crafting all different types of products you might want to double your effort and later start to selling your perfect piece of art.
Let me give you an example. Last year I’ve been with my friends on our regular summer trip in the south of Greece. The woman behind the many stands at the beach told me that she is manufacturing all of it(homemade Textil bracelets)by herself and that she can live all the year long with incomes out of her business.
While working on the beach during the summer( Greece summer is 6 months long) she can afford to live the life on her terms.
isn’t that great?
Other homemade products, which can turn to be profitable are jewelry, easy kitchenette like cups, for instance, sewing, painting, or photography. The choices are limited just to your imagination and skills, right?
If you are a food lover, this option can be perfect for you. I know there are already some delivery options, but if you could bring something new, you can still win some regular clients.
It can be homemade ice-cream, baking products, or bread spread like hummus for instance. Or you can start your own food delivery.
This is a perfect option if you live in an area full of offices. Some office workers find it difficult to go for lunch in the city center. In both cases, you would need to make some kind of network and with that in mind, your brand uniqueness will help you. You might check what is already on the food market and what you can bring differently. Once you get first clients( and your food is great) people will start to come to you automatically.
One thing you can be sure about, people will always want to eat, right? Ideally cheap and healthy -:)
An Hour Husband
Don’t laugh, this term exists. Actually, it is a service commonly used by people without technical or repairing skills. I could be easily thrown into this group as well.
In practice, it is working that you as an hour husband would come and fix anything the household owner is not able to. From connecting the washing machine into the electricity, to the stuck toilet.
Of course, not everyone is suitable for this kind of task, but if you are passionate and in your “flow” while repairing, constructing, or manually fixing small household damages, you might think about starting out this type of business.
The perfect thing about this business is, that as the digitalization is growing, you might be experiencing lower competition.
Personal or Life Coach
In today’s rush nature of work, for many people, it is hard to find a balance between their private and working life. That’s why a good personal or life coach can be needed.
When helping others to be productive, effective at work, and happy in their relationship is something you would be passionate about, this is perfect for you.
You can be an experienced coach already and thinking of opening your own “office”, or you can have no experiences at all. In the present times, there are plenty of online courses and guides on how to start your coaching/consulting business.
The great thing about this type of business is that as time passes and you become skillful, you can choose a particular area you want to concentrate on. You might find it interesting to help just divorced people, or single mothers or youngsters out of problematic families. All in one, it is offering you freedom and sufficient feeling of helping the targeted group of people.
My favorite one in this list. Excellent opportunity if you don’t have a huge budget to start with. Plus, you won’t be storing any of the selling products at your home. Because, all you will do is, sell other people’s products.
Together with all other advantages of any online business, like location freedom i.e., it is far the best home business opportunity. Obviously, if it would be so easy, everyone would do it, right?
I am not saying it is easy, but it is very simple and operational friendly, through the low-cost maintenance.
To be honest, if you want to be successful as an affiliate marketer, you’d need to acquire a few other skills, but they are all of them quite easy to learn. Not mentioning the fact that the other skills related to affiliate marketing business, are by themselves already other business opportunities.
Skills like, SEO and Social Marketing, Copy Writer or Ghost Writer, Graphics or Web Designer. The truth about affiliate marketing is that it is super valuable. Because, in case you are not experienced you’d learn many other things.
You can be promoting already existing products, or you can create brand new, unique and demand-high product
All you need to bear in mind(like by all business opportunities)is how it will help solve other people’s problems? Once you’ll figure this out, you can start profitable home business basically in any field.

Things you shouldn’t forget
If you got super excited, and you can’t wait to start making your own hummus, promoting it by calling to your friends, sharing it all over on social media and eventually calling the city hall to announce it in the local newspaper, there are a couple of things you should consider, before starting out…
The crucial element you want to consider before starting is your skills. It will make less sense if you choose an area where you have no experience or no passion, right?
So, think of things you are good at or things you would be passionate about while doing it. Remember, you want to think about your business, as a place for solving other people’s issues. But you have to enjoy it as well.
Another important element of your business to be considered beforehand is the budget.
In my article, I covered mostly low requirements on it, but if you would like to start big like affiliate marketer, meaning you’d start some paid campaigns to drive traffic to your products.
Or you’d be purchasing the newest kitchen robot before even knowing if people want your food, that is not the best way how to start a home business.
The last part to consider is the market.
Before making the final decision on what to do, you would want to know people who are going to profit from your service/product.
Therefore, knowing the market is an important aspect of your business.
You don’t want to be selling snow-shoes for people living in California, right?
What do people want, where is the demand on? Is there a chance that my product/service is going to serve people or is it going to be just my hobby? When you have this done, you want to choose the best home business.
