If you are like most people, you would have at one point or the other in your life, nursed the desire of starting your own business. The rigours of entrepreneurship, however, mean that not many people are quite ready to make the leap. Starting a side business on the other hand, is the perfect way to gradually get into entrepreneurship, retain the perks of keeping a day job and increase your monthly income. Here are some top options you can go with.
Become an Uber Driver
If you live in a fairly busy postcode and you have a car that is eligible for Uber services, you can become a driver and earn some money when you are done with your day job. You need to have a driver’s license, car insurance and proof of registration.
Become a car detailer
If you have an eye for detail and you have a passion for transforming surfaces, you should consider auto-detailing as a side business. The job involves cleaning cars and returning them to near-new conditions. You will need some training though, so it may be best to work a few hours a week in an auto-detailing business until you are knowledgeable enough to take on projects on your own.
Become an Online Reseller
eBay and other online platforms (social media included) have made it easier for anyone to become a reseller. Interestingly, it doesn’t require massive capital outlay. The first step is to decide on the items you can sell. Take pictures of these items at offline stores and create offers online including your profit margin. When interested parties signify interest and make payment, you can fulfil orders.
Music Entertainment Services
At a time when people are streaming music with ease, it may be surprising to have this option here. However, you only need to look around on an average week to see the myriad of opportunities open to DJs and other musical entertainers. You only need to have a decent music collection, mixing software and a computer to get started on providing music at birthday parties, weddings and other casual events. You can rent speakers and other accessories until you can afford yours.
Become a Snowplower
If you live in an area where the winter is a challenge for many as a result of heavy snow, you can start a snowplow business. You can start small by investing in a shovel or a snowblower but if you would like to take things up, you can invest in a plow attachment for your pickup truck or jeep.
Some of these hustles will probably need a bit of down payment. So, if you do, and you’re having to borrow, make sure you understand the ins and out of your overdraft plan. If it’s a loan you’re taking out, don’t agree to anything until you fully understand the terms and conditions.
