If you are tired of being in debt, exhausted from living paycheck to paycheck, or have merely always dreamed of being your own boss, here is some great news: there are a number of businesses that you can launch right away.
Instead of looking for a traditional part-time job, all of the following ideas can be launched from home and/or done on your own schedule, and can be started pretty much immediately.
1. Do What Others Don’t Like to Do
There are a number of chores that people do not like to do. Pick one of them that you wouldn’t mind doing for pay and launch a company that specializes in this undesirable task. For instance, you could open a dog poo cleaning business, pool or spa cleaning company, driveway power washing business or gutter clean out business with very little overhead. Advertise your new business on social media and ask your friends and family to spread the word; as you gain clients and do a great job for them, you will also probably get numerous referrals to grow your business.
2. Consider Direct Sales
From makeup and sports drinks to handbags and cleaning products, the direct sales industry is rich with opportunity. When partnered with a direct sales company, you can rely on the experience of the existing brand while adding your own flair as you find your own customers. For example, when partnered with Amway, you’ll have access to educational trainings and mentorships, but you’ll still get to set your own hours and be your own boss. As long as you can manage your own time and make sales — whether online or in person — you can start your Amway career today.
3. Sell Your Treasures on eBay
If you have a product that is suitable for online sales—for instance, handmade jewelry or clothing—sell it on eBay. Rather than start up your own website and online store, you can start posting items today to sell. You can also use the site to sell gently used items you have lying around the house. Examples are sports collectibles, clothing, antiques and toys like retired LEGO sets. As long as you have products that people want to buy, a computer and a camera that takes decent photos—in most cases, the one on your phone is ideal—you can launch an eBay business today and start making some money.
4. Deliver Food to Others
While you might not relish driving strangers to the airport at 5 a.m.—and that’s perfectly understandable—you can still hire on with Uber as someone who delivers Uber Eats orders. You won’t have a boss or a set schedule, and you can earn money quickly, when you need it. Depending on the type of city in which you live, you can even make deliveries on foot or on your bike and you can work all weekend or during the week as need be. If you set up Instant Pay with Uber, you will get same-day pay up to five times a day, which is ideal for someone who wants to start earning money today.
Immediate Business Opportunities Exist
Regardless of your reason for wanting to launch your own business or side hustle ASAP, it is good to know that there are plenty of ways to do just that. If you don’t mind scooping doggy poo or cleaning gutters, you should be able to start working very soon—the same is true for direct sales work, eBay selling and food delivery. No matter what you choose, you will be pleased to see how quickly you can launch these jobs and watch the money start coming in.
