We all know that the key to having a sustainable and long term income flow lies in a lot of hard work and patience. But what happens when we do not have enough time and cannot afford to endlessly apply for jobs, wait for a promotion, or make all the necessary preparations to start some elaborate business, and we cannot allow ourselves to be patient? Fortunately, nothing too severe because there are more than enough options to quickly set up a small business you can use out there. Let us take a quick look at five of them.
Sell the Home-Made Stuff
As the times go by people are slowly abandoning the uniform clothes and accessories,beauty products and home items and trying to express themselves through unique home-made alternatives. The good news is that even if you do not have previous experience in making this stuff, the learning curve is not too steep and you can master most of the skills after spending few days hanging out with YouTube tutorials. If done right and marketed well, these products can reach very good online price.
Become an Online Errand Boy (or Girl)
Although there is nothing particularly new about doing various internet errands, they all have one common flaw – Forcing you to stay vigilant and constantly look out for them. Why, then, would you not start your small “errand boy” online business and let the employers come to you. People would much rather hire someone with a face and the previous track record then some total stranger who just applied for the job, and judging by success of offline errand companies you will not lack assignments.
Start a Pet Day Care
People love their pets, nearly as much as their kids. Give those pets, then, the same amount of love and care you would give their kids if you were running a children day care. If you have trouble setting up your backyard, you can start with regular dog sitting, but as soon as you earn some money and establish some relationships, buy all the necessary requisites, and let the people bring their pets to you. You will see, as soon as the word spreads, and season of holidays arrives, your services will very quickly become a very sought-out commodity.
Start a Second Hand Online Shop
Much like with the previous example, you can start earningby selling used stuff the moment you make a garage sale or visit the nearest flea shop and resell the things you just bought, but why stop there? Invest that money in buying new items, find tools online and try to refurbish some of the pieces to raise their value, and make a Facebook page where you will promote your little shop.As soon as the money start pouring in, you can do things like completing comic book collections before selling them, bundling similar clothes or furniture pieces, and even delivering the items to customers’ homes to bring your business on a whole new level.
Rent a Room
Finally, if you are all out of options, you can always go back to tried and tested solutions and start renting one of your house’s rooms. Finding a long-term tenant may be the safest route, but if you want to do something really interesting, you can arrange one of the rooms (or the entire house, for that matter) to look like Simpsons’ or Griffins’ home (all together with zany colors and furniture), or if you really want to go for it, something from Game of Thrones, and turn it into an overnight stay.
