Dreaming of Starting Your Own Business? Here Are Some Easy Ones to Consider

Everywhere you look people are giving up their 9-to-5’s and going into business for themselves. Being self-employed is great. It allows you the freedom to set your own hours, you don’t have to drive to and from work, and it’s casual Friday every day if you want it to be.

While starting your own business from home is great, many people don’t pursue that dream because it takes money. That’s why, in this blog post, you’ll find a few of the easiest businesses you can start to help you on your road to self-employment at the best possible price.

A Few Things You Might Need to Get Started

Even though you’re not going to need much in the way of money to get started in most of these businesses, you will need a few things. A reliable internet connection is a must if you want to be able to keep up with taxes, bookkeeping, ordering, and the like.

You also need a few things to make running your business easier, such as software that lets you capture web page information with ease. Once you have these things in place (or the money to do so) then it’s time to decide which business you’d like to start from the list below.


Yes, it’s a fact that more and more people are looking for a babysitter to take care of their beloved pets when they can’t be home with them. A professional pet sitter comes into the home and takes care of the animals when the pet parents can’t be there. Duties usually include walking, feeding, and playing with the pet while you’re pet-sitting.

If you know animals and love them, this could be the ideal business for you to start. It is said that the pet-sitting industry is growing rapidly. You do need to make sure to follow some pet-sitting tips, however, so that you don’t get in over your head.

Cleaning Services

If you have a working knowledge of cleaning products and procedures as well as the ability to hire, train and keep reliable staff, then residential cleaning might be a great business for you to get into. Having your home cleaned by a service is no longer for just the rich and famous. Instead, in this day of both parents working outside of the home, more and more, busy families are turning to cleaning services to take care of their homes for them, meaning that your cleaning service could be booming in no time at all.

Author/Freelance Writing

In a world where you don’t have to hope to be accepted by the Big Six to get your book published, the ability to self-publish has taken off like gangbusters.Self-publishing on Amazon has become increasingly popular, making it easy for whoever has a great idea to put it out into the world. There are authors out there who are making a killing on their former books every month. You do have to have a talent for writing and creating a story, but if you love to create worlds and stories of your own, this is a wonderful business to get into. Try it! It could be your dream come true.

There are also companies out there who pay for freelance writers to write blogs, articles, buying guides, and other things for their websites to increase their SEO and business reach. If you like to write but don’t want to become a published author, then try this on for size instead.

These are just a few of the top business options out there for those who want to become self-employed, but who don’t have a ton of money to invest. Pick your passion and go with it and you will reach the success you crave.
