If the pet care side job really takes off, or the demand is high, you might consider recruiting friends to take advantage of the increase in business opportunities. There are some people who run dog walking and pet care service businesses as full-time careers after starting off just offering their services to people in their apartment buildings and along their streets.
The first step is to watch the stock market for business opportunities, keep up on the news, and read blog posts on what to look for when trading stocks. Once you feel comfortable with the potential risks, and understand how to look for trends, then it is time to take some money and dive in.
People move into the house they worked very hard to purchase, only to find out a few months later that the wiring it faulty, there’s no insulation in the bedroom, and the one place where there is insulation – the bathroom – has trace amounts of asbestos that was not thoroughly removed the first time around.
There is never a shortage of business opportunities for good home inspectors. Getting Started In order to become a property inspector, it helps to head on over to Home, Inspector. org and read their introductory articles. That site is owned and operated by the American Society of Home Inspectors. This organization offers the courses and exams to become a certified home inspector.
One of the great things about becoming a home inspector is that it does not require you to give up your regular job. Potential homeowners will reach out to you to schedule an appointment, so you can maintain your own schedule. Depending on the real estate market in a given area, people can transition from their regular jobs into becoming full-time property inspectors.
Customer Service For every business with more than 10,000 customers, there is a shortage of people to help those with issues that need resolving. What a lot of consumers do not understand is that many customer service representatives are independent contractors right here in the United States. People with a knack for explaining things in a chat-room, or de-escalating potentially hostile consumer reactions, can find many business opportunities as contracted customer service representatives.
All companies take the time (and it is usually paid time) to train contracted customer service representatives in specific procedures, conversation scripts, metrics, and the company culture overall. Due to workload overflow, these companies are more than happy to work with your schedule so you can help customers in your spare time, as opposed to scheduling your life around their customer tickets.
Cleaning services can start out as small, part-time business opportunities that can grow very quickly into full-time careers. Getting Started If you look at one of the largest cleaning service companies in the United States, ABM Industries, you will learn an interesting and inspiring story. ABM was started by one man, Ted Rosenberg, in the early 1900s.
Care Provider For those with a great bedside manner and a desire to help people, looking at business opportunities as a care provider might be right for you. An in-home care provider does not need to have special training, like an RN, though it does increase desirability and available business opportunities, if you are doing all of the work yourself.
Getting Started The first step is to get a contract with the business that is hiring you for your services. There are a number of boilerplate contract templates over at Printable, Contracts. com which can be modified for all types of business opportunities. The next step is to figure out pricing.
If those business opportunities exist, they are very rare. Most ebooks are written at a rate starting at around $100 to $200 per page. The whole point of the ebook is to generate leads for sales from business opportunities that are worth many times that, so business owners should be comfortable with that rate.
Getting Started When working with electronics, it helps to have a working computer with an internet connection. From there, check local ads and Craigslist for business opportunities, like people who are selling or trying to offload electronic equipment and gadgets that no longer work. If you live in a college town, students will get rid of computers and devices by the ton at the end of each semester, simply because they are not “the latest and greatest.” The next step is to consult the internet to identify problems.
For computers, tablets, and smartphones, most problems are software-based. The problem is that most people either do not have the time, nor the inclination to go searching for even simple solutions. For things like stereo equipment, the problem may be physical, in which case it might help to get a soldering gun.
