If you are considering your options when it comes to home based businesses or working from home, it is important to consider options that are relatively simple to start up and don’t take an entire army to get off the ground. Finding the right type of home based business for you can be tricky. Here are some business ideas for you to consider:
- Corporate Catering – in this day and age it is difficult enough preparing yourself a packed lunch let alone a healthy one. By offering corporate catering services, you can prepare and deliver delicious healthy lunches and snacks to business parks and offices. This can be operated on a pre-order basis from the comfort of your own home.
- Gifting Service – many people do not have the time to put together a special gift basket for the birth of a new baby or that special promotion. By offering this service you will be able to operate your home based business on flexible time.
- After Care Facilities – if you are experienced with children, you can offer to care for those whose parents are working regular or late hours. You can turn your experience with children into a profitable home based business.
- Business Card Printing - If you have basic design skills and invest in a good computer and laminating machine, you can sell business cards at affordable rates to local businesses. This is a great way to start your home based business.
- Grocery Shopping Service – many people, mostly those in retirement villages or old age homes require someone to do their grocery shopping for them and deliver it to their homes. This could be a growing and lucrative home based business idea.
- Recruitment Agent – if you have access to the internet, fax machine and telephone line, you could act as an agent between job seekers and employers. Sifting through CV’s is a task many larger companies do not have time to do.
- Party Planning – if you love to organise things and have an eye for detail and decor, then consider your home based business to be that of party planning.
- Scrapbooking Service – if you have an eye for art and colours, then scrapbooking as a work from home business may be the thing for you. Scrapbooking is easily set up by collecting photographs of the family that require the scrap book and charging the artwork fee’s to the clients account. Have fun earning an income!
- Personal Trainer – if you have personal training or gym experience, there are even courses you can attend. Training people at the gym or in the comfort of your own home gym can be a great home based business start-up.
- Virtual assistant / typist – many people need their resume’s typed out professionally, their data captured, or important documents typed and sent out. This is becoming a popular home based business concept.
If any of these potential home based businessideas tickle your fancy, then you should be considering breaking free from the shackles of working for a boss and start looking into home based business options today!
