Looking to pick up extra cash? Start your own small business this weekend without a hefty investment. Here are five small businesses for you to consider:
1.Meal Delivery—Plenty of people would pay to have the local fast food place, the local hero place or restaurant deliver a lunch or dinner. You can do it. Investigate food heaters and/or coolers to be state of the art or pack the meals in insulated bags. Start promoting your service and start pocketing the fees.
2.Inventory Service—How many times have you or a friend said, “Wow, I have to make a list of what’s in my home/apartment for insurance purposes in case there is ever a fire or robbery.” Who has the time to do it? Start your inventory service and market it to residential and commercial customers. A laptop would be a big help and a digital camera, but start small and build your business.
3.Boat/Car Detailing: Car owners are fanatics about their vehicles and so are boat and plane owners. Investigate the products and start your own detailing biz. Check out Bill Rancic’s book, “You’re Hired” and read how he started his own boat detailing business.
4.Small Biz Vacation Fill-In Employee: There are so many small business owners who can never take a vacation because there is no one to fill in for them. Many don’t need someone to run the entire venture, just be a body to answer a phone and be available if an emergency comes up. You can be that person and roam from business to business filling in for the boss while he or she is away.
5.Errand Service—If you’re organized and detail oriented, start an errand service helping small businesses, biz owners, harried single parents and just about anyone else get things done.
