4 Easy Businesses to Start and Manage Yourself From Home

4 Easy Businesses to Start and Manage Yourself From Home
Posted By: Hannah Whittenly on October 06, 2020

Starting your own small business doesn’t always have to involve a large financial investment or other major hassles. Some businesses can be started from home on a limited budget, and getting into one of these fields could be highly lucrative for you. Here are four easy businesses to start and manage yourself from home.

Babysitting


If you love kids and have the space, you can open a daycare in your home. Parents will rely on you to watch over their children for part or most of the day. To keep the children in your care entertained, you’ll want to have plenty of toys, books and other kid-friendly items that they can use. Providing some form of education can also help shape their minds for the better. You may also be responsible for preparing the children’s meals and including foods that are part of a well-balanced diet. Before opening your home-based daycare, you’ll want to check the laws in your area to find out if you need to obtain a license or any other permits to operate legally.

Jewelry Sales


Jewelry is always a hot commodity, and you can try selling your own from the comfort of your home by placing ads on websites or selling through an established online marketplace. You can try making your own pieces or ordering premade jewelry in bulk to resell. It’s even possible to sell ear piercing jewellery that’s ideal for people with sensitive skin.



If you know how to pierce safely, you can invite clients to your home to pierce their ears or noses using piercing kits that make the task easier.

Freelance Writing


All that you need to become a freelance writer is an up-to-date computer in your home that has internet connection. It’s also important that you possess a strong knowledge of the English language or any other language in which you plan to write along with a clear understanding of proper grammar, sentence structure and other aspects of written communication. You can find many freelance writing jobs on online job boards or by signing up with certain websites that provide work to freelance writers. You can also try getting clients by promoting your writing services on social media.

Bookkeeping


If you have a knack for numbers and keeping things in order, working as a self-employed bookkeeper could be an excellent career choice. Clients will hire you to manage books for their businesses so that they can always be aware of their financial statuses. You may also be hired to help process payroll and prepare taxes. Like with many other home-based businesses, you can work as a bookkeeper if you have a reliable computer with internet access. You may also need to meet with clients in person from time to time to deliver important documents or pick up work that needs to be completed.
Starting and managing a business from your home can give you the fulfillment in your work that you’ve been craving. With the right skills and tools, you can start any of these businesses in almost no time and enjoy a sustainable income.
